How the US piles pressure on Palestinians | Intrepid Report.com

Palestine is occupied and I am beginning to wonder whether Washington is as well. Not only has President Donald Trump gifted occupied Jerusalem to the Jewish state and defunded UNRWA, he has axed $25 million (Dh91.82 million) for Palestinian hospitals, closed the PLO’s mission and revoked visas for the Palestinian envoy and his family. His latest blow was to cut $10 million for Israeli-Palestinian coexistence programmes.

Moreover, the US has refused visas for Palestinian officials to present their case before a high-level UN meeting in New York. These moves are nothing short of hostile acts aimed at bringing the Palestinian National Authority to its knees.

Kushner Middle East “peace” plan involves a Palestinian sell-out | Intrepid Report.com

July 12, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

A draft Middle East “peace” plan, scheduled to be rolled out by Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and then put on hold, involved Mohammed Dahlan, a key former Palestinian Authority figure who now aligns with United Arab Emirates pro-Israeli crown prince Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahayan (MBZ).

The Palestinians, stung by Trump’s moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, cut off contact with the Trump White House. Since that time, Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, a former lawyer for the Trump Organization, who now serves as Trump’s “special representative for international negotiations,” infuriated the Palestinians even further by cutting them out from negotiations on the future of the West Bank and Gaza. Kushner held talks with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates on the plan, which Trump had previously dubbed the “ultimate deal.” Kushner, Greenblatt, and the Israelis are planning on pressuring the Palestinians by holding out an infrastructure improvement package for Gaza so long as Hamas, which currently governs the pene-enclave, is removed from power.

Proposed Israeli Law Criminalizes Filming Soldiers’ Human Rights Violations | Zero Hedge

May 26, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

A controversial new bill set to go before Israel’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation in the Knesset on Sunday would ban taking videos or photos of Israeli soldiers in the process of arresting or subduing Palestinians.

It’s a move that advocacy groups are decrying as an aggressive censorship measure aimed at banning the documentation Israeli soldiers’ human rights violations, especially as the U.N. Human Rights Council has opened a formal investigation into accusations that Israeli security forces recently gunned down scores of Palestinian civilians protesting along the Gaza-Israeli border fence.

The legislation, if passed, could result in a punishment of 5 to up to 10 years in prison for merely recording encounters between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians.
