50 000 Palestinian Children Imprisoned by Israeli Kangaroo Courts Since 1967

JERUSALEM – According to figures released by the Prisoners’ and Freed Prisoners’ Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on Sunday, the state of Israel has imprisoned more than 50,000 children since the occupation of Palestine’s West Bank began in 1967. The PLO report, which was cited by Middle East Monitor, also noted that around 17,000 of those child arrests had occurred since the year 2000. The report used the UN definition that states that a child is any person younger than 18 years of age. However, Israel’s government has defined children younger than 16 as children, while applying the UN definition to Israeli children.

The PLO report – titled “Child Detention… Facts and Statistics… Effects on the Reality and Future of Palestinian Childhood” – was made public as the head of the PLO Prisoner committee, Abdul Nasser Ferwaneh, gave testimony to the 5th European Union conference in support of prisoners. In delivering his report and testimony, Ferwaneh noted that the rate of child imprisonment by the Israeli state had nearly doubled, averaging around 700 children imprisoned annually from 2000 to 2010 but rising to around 1,250 between 2011 and 2018.

Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), citing data from the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) and Israeli army temporary detention facilities, recently reported that 414 Palestinian children were imprisoned by Israeli military courts in just the first two months of 2019.

An apartheid system with kangaroo courts

Since 1967, Palestinian children have been subjected to Israeli military law while Israeli settlers living in illegal West Bank settlements are governed by Israel’s civilian criminal legal system. Aside from the fact that subjecting two different populaces in the same area to two different legal systems is a clear manifestation of apartheid, Israel is the only country in the world that automatically tries children in military courts, courts that lack basic fair trial guarantees and have a near-automatic conviction rate. In addition, many Palestinian children are arbitrarily detained, or imprisoned without charge.

Most Palestinian children tried in military court are accused of throwing stones – which, as of 2015, can carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. No Israeli child has ever been tried in an Israeli military court.

Children in detention in Israeli jails are often subjected to various forms of abuse, including “slapping, beating, kicking and violent pushing” as well as verbal abuse, according to prisoner-rights group Adameer. Adameer has also noted that Palestinian children are sometimes threatened with rape in order to extract confessions, which are often written in Hebrew – a language most Palestinian children can’t read or understand.

Obaida Akram Jawabra, a 15-year-old who has already been arrested twice by Israel, told DCIP that in prison “[Israeli] soldiers would beat me in places that would leave no marks so there wouldn’t be evidence on my body that I could use to testify against them.” Figures released by DCIP claim that 75 percent of Palestinian child prisoners report being subjected to physical violence while in prison and 62 percent report being subjected to verbal violence.

The majority of Palestinian children in detention are unable to receive family visits, since nearly 60 percent of all child detainees are transferred from the West Bank to Israeli prisons upon conviction. This practice, which violates the Fourth Geneva Convention – coupled with restrictions on Palestinians’ freedom of movement in the West Bank and the long delays in issuing permits for entry to Israel – prevents the vast majority of West Bank Palestinian families from visiting their imprisoned children.

While Israel’s government often touts itself as the “only democracy” in the Middle East, it is also the only government in the entire world that detains children through military courts with a near 100 percent conviction rate, something that even Saudi Arabia does not do. Israel’s practice of imprisoning Palestinian children is a clear violation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by Israel in 1991, as it routinely robs thousands of children of their right to a safe childhood.

Israel to Send 250,000 Settlers to Syria’s Golan Heights

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/israel-to-send-250000-settlers-to-syrias-golan-heights/

(MEMO) — Israel is planning to settle some 250,000 settlers in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights over the next 30 years, the Israeli Broadcasting Authority (IBA) revealed yesterday.

According to Anadolu, the report comes one week after US President Donald Trump signed a presidential decree recognising the Golan Heights as “Israeli territory”.

According to the IBA, the Israeli plan also includes construction of two new Jewish settlements in the occupied Golan Heights, along with thousands of new settlement units and a raft of planned transport and tourism projects.

The population of the occupied Golan Heights currently stands at some 50,000, including 22,000 settlers, according to Israeli figures.

Israel, which annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, has long pushed Washington to recognise its claim over the strategic plateau, which it seized from Syria during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, but previous US administrations had refrained from doing so.

Familiar Killers Eager to Start World War 3

Americans remain hypnotized
by fraudulent TV ‘authorities’

Human society must be liberated
from Jewish control – or perish!

Disabuse yourself of the notion that America is not controlled by Jews. It has been been – completely and ruthlessly – for the past century or more.

Prior to World War 1 the Jews enlisted the help of Theodore Roosevelt to split the Republican vote and get “the Peace President” Woodrow Wilson elected, who soon thereafter declared war on Germany, resulting in 17 million dead.

Prior to World War 2 the Jews faced the greatest threat to their worldwide financial hegemony after Adolf Hitler had evicted central bankers from Germany. Fortunately for the Jews they already had a Jewish Communist sympathizer in the White House who overrode the widespread peace sentiment in both America and Europe and created the worst war in human history, 80 million dead.

In both these cases it was Jewish control of media that turned a peace loving populace into dutiful soldiers who sacrificed their lives in wars that never needed to be fought.

Today we have presidents and presidential candidates surrounded by Jewish handlers and choking on Jewish lies. But the deciding factor is media, which limit what can be discussed. Since the foul media apparatus in the so-called free world is wholly run by Jews, we have no prospective presidential candidate who opposes the suicidal course of the American war machine as it ravages country after country at the behest of its Jewish masters.

The signs are unmistakable. Amid all sides hypocritically preaching for peace, Jewish media rage for war, twisting accounts and motives to favor strife as opposed to rational negotiation. Jews are not interested in logical discourse; they are only in favor of shedding blood, and always have been.

The Jewish sine qua non in Syria is getting rid of popular Syrian president Bashar al-Assad because he prevents the Jewish state from being completely surrounded by such sycophantic pseudostates as Egypt, Libya, Turkey, the Gulf States and especially Saudi Arabia, which is only now being revealed as a nation of secret Jews.

Plus, the fall of Syria would mean the start of the real war against Iran.

Similar masquerades happened at the beginnings of World Wars One and Two, when populations on both sides of the conflicts expressed an overwhelming desire for peace, but the Jewish controlled leaders of the Western aggressor states, backed by the deceptively partisan leaders of the Jewish media that supported them, overrode popular sentiment and stacked the deck with misleading accounts and fabricated horror stories that produced, counting the two world wars, almost one hundred million dead.

Today the same situation is happening again. The ISIS combatants trying to overthrow the duly elected government of Syria are funded by the United States and its truculent allies, even as the President of the United States swears to a justifiably skeptical public that he is leading a coalition to stop these barbaric rebels he is covertly funding.

It is a colossal disgrace for the American people not to have Barack Obama arrested for treason for aiding the enemy and betraying his country in such an egregious way, but then, he has committed numerous acts that would have qualified him for such a charge, starting with running for office in the first place.

This double dealing is in itself a repeat of the U.S. creation of the Al-Qaeda terrorist group, falsely blamed for the 9/11 atrocity. The Al-Qaeda fantasy was named as the enemy in both the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as the Arab mercenary gang of thugs was funded by the U.S. at the same time America pretended to be fighting them.

The formula was a howling success that bamboozled a semi-conscious U.S. public, so Obama and his Jew handlers decided it would work again in Syria, and so with ISIS, it has, until the Russians got involved.

The Jew-controlled U.S. tried to start World War 3 last year; in 2014 it organized a revolution in Ukraine on the very border of Russia. Still today U.S. media refer to the event as a Russian invasion, ignoring the ugly fact that the Ukraine uprising was fueled by Israeli commandos and American money creating murder victims that were primarily Russian-speaking Ukrainians.

It is to the everlasting credit of Russian leader Vladimir Putin that he did not take the bait then, and respond with a massive invasion to regain the territory that had long been a part of the old Soviet Union. Such an effort would have possibly ignited World War 3. Instead Putin merely sent unofficial but vital aid to the beleaguered residents of eastern Ukraine that enabled them to retain their relative independence, something they continue to try to preserve.

Now Putin faces the same situation again in Syria, where his Russian military has turned the tide against these vicious, Western-supported mercenaries who seek to make Syria a vassal state under the control of Israel and the U.S.

But Russia’s patience has been pushed to the brink, not only by the lies of U.S. leaders and their public relations ghouls who pose as independent media, but from Israel shooting down one of its airliners, and from Turkey shooting down one of its fighter bombers and lying about the circumstances surrounding this suspicious event.

The biggest lie seems to be Turkey’s and whether the Russian bomber, chasing ISIS rebels, was actually in Turkish airspace. But an even bigger lie encompassing the whole affair was revealed in the question of who is buying the oil the ISIS rebels are selling, a question that appeared to be answered when Russia retaliated for the loss of its bomber by obliterating a caravan of oil tankers headed to Turkey from ISIS-held oil facilities in eastern Syria.

People are slowly learning that anything and everything the U.S. and its NATO allies say is a lie, but whether enough Americans are brave enough to recognize third fact is really the key factor in whether or not World War 3 is about to begin.

If Americans can recognize that their leaders, utterly controlled by Israel, have been lying to them for years, they can still probably stop World War 3. But they show no sign of being anywhere near that brave, so it would be prudent to fear the worst due to the intractable inertia of the overweight American drecks.

Putin’s forbearance in not immediately attacking Turkey might have put off the start of another and probably last world war, but that catastrophic event is merely postponed, not canceled, as the U.S. and its paid assassins continue to assault all those countries not corralled by phony leaders with not-so-secret allegiance to the Israeli-American war machine.

The dominance of Jewish media in America which prevents legitimate debate over the course America is to take toward its future is reflected in the plastic and insincere attitudes of all the presidential candidates, who apparently approve of Barack Obama doing exactly what the Jews tell him to do and destroy one country after another.

There is no candidate who openly challenges the criminal behavior of the United States. Even the popular Donald Trump is in favor of a powerful American military, and all of the rest of them are in favor of war based on the false scenario that Russia is the aggressor, and the Syrian president is a murderous tyrant in the same way that the very popular Muammar Qaddafi was bad for his people.

Regardless of how simplistic thinkers might like what Trump has had to say, there is really no alternative candidate to the war party, the party of the banks, the party of the Jews.

It is now up to the American people to solve the problem, but from what I’ve seen and heard, nobody has a viable plan to get this job done.

In addition to the mindlocked media, Jews control the movies and the music which now have painted the white people who created this country in a bad light and the dark skinned peoples who dominate the crime scene and fill the prisons as humans to be emulated. (Pardon me while I throw up.)

Even the Internet is controlled by Jewish companies Google, Pay Pal, Microsoft and Apple, and the book distribution network is dominated by Jewish Amazon, which recently banned Prof. Jim Fetzer’s book that the Sandy Hook event was an entirely false flag operation in which nobody was killed, something anybody who has studied the matter in depth knows is absolutely true.

Google in particular presents a difficult situation for everybody on the planet. Like Wikipedia, Google is assiduously weeding out any facts that paint Jews in a bad light, and as a consequence, the knowledge base of the world is inexorably shrinking and turning into propaganda wholly supportive of the Jewish totalitarian scheme.

In the aftermath of the destruction of two Russian aircraft, both attempts to sabotage the noble Russian effort to halt the Jewish-American destruction of Syria, two hellaciously damning facts have been revealed regarding the perfidy of NATO member Turkey and their secret allegiance to the Israeli maniacs.

One, Israel is the principal buyer of ISIS oil from refineries it has captured. The second biggest customer may be revealed in the long line of tankers waiting to get into the docks of Houston.

And two, the word is out that the son of the Turkish president is the mastermind behind the oil scam, principally selling ISIS oil to Israel. If this is so, it’s no wonder Turkey shot down the Russian bomber, because Turkey and NATO are fighting to protect ISIS, because they are profiting mightily from the oil ISIS is stealing from Iraq.

If this is so, Putin has every right to blow NATO-ally Turkey to kingdom come, and of course, should that happen, the West would be compelled to come to Turkey’s aid and defend its criminal activity. Of course, that would mean World War 3 and the possible end of human civilization.

But by their wantonly criminal maneuvers, WW3 seems to be exactly what Turkey, the United States, and the Jews eagerly want.

The only logical solution to the world’s continuing oppression because of the Jews ubiquitous control of the money supply is to obliterate Israel, invade the city of London, and arrest and execute the Jewish bankers who have insinuated their asphyxiating tentacles around every country on the planet, deprived them all of their rightful wealth, and caused the unnecessary deaths of uncountable millions of innocent people by their brutal control of the major military forces of the world.

Since the Jews essentially own all the military arrays who could possibly accomplish such a task, it is very unlikely to happen. Yet . . .

Human society must be liberated from Jewish control – or perish! Not only is it the religious objective of the Jewish Talmud to kill or enslave all the non Jews of the world, the Jews have effectively put themselves in a position to do that by their control of the U.S. military, their control of organized medicine, their control of the food production industry and their absolute control of the world’s finances, which guarantees them control of the world’s politicians.

There is no negotiating with Jews. Their overarching insanity prohibits reasonable, human-to-human discussions. How one deals with a mad dog is the appropriate metaphor.

These are truly dark days that approach us now, with the fires of hell being kindled by the continuing lies we hear on TV, lies produced by Jews who have no concern for what is right or what is fair, but only for the twisted pathologies that roll off their tongues with no regard for anyone but themselves.

If we, the sincere humans of planet Earth, wish to survive, we need to neutralize the Jews and put them someplace where they can’t hurt anybody else. Hurting, fleecing, robbing, raping and murdering others has been their specialty for thousands of years. If that place is six feet under, so much the better. It is something they would richly deserve.

It would make sense to kill them before they kill us, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen that way, certainly not if they get their way and start World War 3, which is what these pathological homicidal maniacs sincerely desire.

Israel to Form Coalition for World Internet Censorship

Source: https://codoh.com/library/document/3994/?lang=en

By Roberto Hernández
Published: 2016-02-15

According to a report on on Jan. 19, 2016 in The Times of Israel, also briefly reported in The New Observer, Gilad Erdan the Israeli Public Security Minister, is to develop legislation that would force FaceBook, YouTube, Twitter and others to take responsibility for content, that is, legislation that would enforce a kind of censorship in which the excuse that supports such extra-territorial legislation is that these social-media networks can serve to peddle incitement to terrorism.

This is specifically but not only aimed at Palestinians, said Gilad Erdan, as an example of incitement to terrorism, who allegedly posted a body chart on which are shown the best places where one can stab someone fatally – apparently a reference to the recent wave of knife attacks on Jews in Israel. Erdan also said on Sunday, that he “intended to methodically expose the Palestinian culture of incitement among relevant communities around the world.”

Apparently Erdan plans to start working on a model statute with European countries, said his spokesman, and assures that most of these countries “are very interested in this idea. The legislation would have common features, such as defining what constitutes incitement and what the responsibilities of social networks regarding it are. Companies that do not comply will find themselves hauled into court, paying a penalty.”

But experts are skeptical about the proposal. This so-called Coalition poses a high level of technical problems as to how to monitor each and every post. As it is now, companies like FaceBook have difficulty monitoring and enforcing their own policies due to the volume of posts made on a given day.

However even if technically possible, there is also a mixed reaction within Israel itself. We hope that is true for the rest of the world, including those European countries which are interested in this proposal. Censorship can wear many guises and could even look appealing to some, but in the end it is a terrible game where no one gains but those who enforce it, and all liberty is in peril.

Israel Secretly Armed and Funded 12 Syrian Rebel Groups

Source: https://infostormer.com/israel-secretly-armed-and-funded-12-syrian-rebel-groups/

Now that the Syrian government led by Bashar Al-Assad has taken most back most of the country from Islamic terrorists, we see a report that has come out talking about how Israel armed and financed 12 different Syrian rebel groups. The report from Foreign Policy Magazine has been covered widely in the Israeli media.

We all knew that this was going on, but this report is just confirmation of what we’ve been saying for the past few years. The Jews were a key driving force in all of the chaos, death and destruction that took place in Syria. This is an unquestionable reality that is now fully admitted.

All that’s left now is for the Syrians to flush out the terrorists in Idlib. The hysteria from Nikki Haley at the UN Security Council over this was comical. She was whining about how Syria, Russia and Iran are going to do all these bad things. Apparently, she’s in favor of Islamic terrorism so long as that terrorism benefits Israel. The bitch is completely unhinged.

The bottom line is that Syria would not be the mess that it is if it wasn’t for outside interference from Jews and the ZOG deep state in Washington DC.

Reign of Terror: Israeli Defense Minister Declares There are “No Innocent People in Gaza”

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/reign-terror-israeli-defense-minister-declares-no-innocent-people-gaza/

Terrorism is defined as, “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” What Israel does to Palestine is a textbook example of state-sponsored terrorism, but of course the jewish media wants to make you believe that anyone who stands against Israel is a terrorist or a terrorist-sympathizer. One particular quote comes to mind, from a Black man who eventually realized the nature of jewish villainy:

If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” ~ Malcolm X

That sure sums up the situation for many Americans, especially the Christian Zionists.

The jewish press and the sitting US president would love for you to believe it was Palestinians (and not Israelis) dancing for joy when the towers came down in NYC on September 11th. They want the rightful owners of the land of “Israel” to be broad-brushed as Islamic terrorists. They want the Palestinians to be completely delegitimized and dehumanized.

Israel stole the land of the indigenous Semites of Palestine and threw them all in a concentration camp; where they are routinely bombed, sometimes with illegal weapons (eg, white phosphorous); where they have their houses sprayed with “skunk spray”; where they have to go through countless checkpoints to get from one side to the other; where their water and electricity is rationed by Israeli as a form of punishment; where essential aid is not allowed in; where young children are kidnapped and indefinitely imprisoned without charges; and where innocent men, women and children are subject to sniper fire, without any repercussions… oh wait, according to the Israeli defense minister, none of the almost 2 million people living in Gaza are innocent. They are all born terrorists who do not deserve any rights.

There are no innocent people in Gaza.” ~ Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman

Lieberman told Israeli public radio:

Everyone’s connected to Hamas, everyone gets a salary from Hamas, and all the activists trying to challenge us and breach the border are Hamas military wing activists.”

After the first massacre of unarmed Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated: “Well done to our soldiers”. Spokesman for the ruling Likud Party Eli Hazan told Israeli television that all 30,000 protesters – men, women and children – were “legitimate targets”.

Israel has taken full responsibility for the murders, which they claim are justified.

Donald Trump has not commented directly on what has been transpiring, but one would have to assume he is absolutely giddy at the slaughter being carried out by his buddy Bibi.

The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. When they say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families.” ~ Donald Trump

So far over 30 unarmed protesters have been killed and thousands others injured on the Gaza border during the recent “March of Return” protests. The peaceful protesters have been subjected to tank fire, sniper fire, and tear gas from drones.

The mainstream media in the US, which usually pretends to care about the oppression of brown people at the hands of violent racists, remains largely silent. They do not even seem too concerned that a press reporter at the protests was murdered by sniper fire.

Yaser Murtaja, a cameraman for Palestinian Ain Media, was wearing a “PRESS” flak jacket as he was shot by an Israeli sniper Friday. He died of his injuries in a hospital on Saturday. The 30-year-old journalist was one of nine people killed and more than 1,000 injured by Israeli troops Friday on the Gaza border. (Source)

Sources in Gaza have confirmed that journalist Yaser Murtaja has died after being shot in the abdomen by an Israeli sniper while covering the protests. He was clearly wearing a vest that identified him as press. Rest in peace.

Israel Carried Out Extrajudicial Executions, Tortured Children: Report

Source: http://www.renegadetribune.com/israel-carried-extrajudicial-executions-tortured-children-report/

Renegade Editor’s Note: While I am not a fan of Amnesty International, I do not doubt anything put forth in their report.

By Middle East Monitor

Israeli authorities and armed forces carried out extrajudicial executions, tortured Palestinian prisoners and targeted human rights defenders, Amnesty International’s new annual report says.

2017 “marked the 50th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of the [occupied] Palestinian Territories” (OPT), Amnesty noted, “and the 10th anniversary of its illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip.”

Israeli authorities intensified the expansion of settlements and related infrastructure across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and carried out a large number of demolitions of Palestinian property, forcibly evicting more than 660 people,” the report states.

“Many of these demolitions were in Bedouin and herding communities that the Israeli authorities planned to forcibly transfer.”

Meanwhile, Amnesty also slammed “Israel’s air, land and sea blockade of the Gaza Strip,” which it says is “collectively punishing Gaza’s entire population of approximately 2 million inhabitants.”

Addressing the use of lethal violence, Amnesty International noted that Israeli forces killed 76 Palestinians and one foreign national in 2017, adding that “many, including children, were shot and unlawfully killed while posing no immediate threat to life.”

Some killings, Amnesty continued, “appeared to have been extrajudicial executions.”

Across the occupied territories, “Israeli forces, including undercover units, used excessive and sometimes lethal force when they used rubber-coated metal bullets and live ammunition against Palestinian protesters,” killing “at least 20, and injuring thousands.”

Amnesty’s annual report notes the killing in December of “wheelchair user Ibrahim Abu Thurayya,” who “was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier as he was sitting with a group of protesters near the fence separating Gaza from Israel.”

The new report also commented on Israel’s use of mass incarceration as a tool of political repression, documenting how “Israel detained or continued to imprison thousands of Palestinians from the OPT, mostly in prisons in Israel, in violation of international law.”

Israeli authorities also “continued to substitute administrative detention for criminal prosecution,” says Amnesty, “holding hundreds of Palestinians, including children, civil society leaders and NGO workers, without charge or trial under renewable orders, based on information withheld from detainees and their lawyers.”

Furthermore, “Israeli soldiers and police and Israel Security Agency [Shin Bet] officers subjected Palestinian detainees, including children, to torture and other ill-treatment with impunity, particularly during arrest and interrogation.”

Amnesty International also accused Israeli authorities of using “a range of measures, both in Israel and the OPT, to target human rights defenders who criticised Israel’s continuing occupation.”

Other topics covered by the report, in relation to Israel’s ongoing rights violations, included the lack of accountability, “more than three years” later, for “evidently unlawful attacks including war crimes” committed by the Israeli military in its 2014 assault on the Gaza Strip.
