Palestinian-American killed by Israeli military in West Bank protest

Does Israel need to cut the throat of a US citizen in order for the US administration to add another terrorist State to its list of targets?

Last week, protests erupted when Muslims were prevented access to East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque while Israelis were allowed to enter.

The Israeli Parliament is about to decree that Israeli Jews should have the right to pray in Al Aqsa, kind of sharing this religious site.

The West Bank is in effervescence since then.

Orwah Hammad, 14, is the latest casualty in ongoing tensions in Jerusalem and the West Bank

A Palestinian-American teenager was shot and killed Friday by the Israeli military, and 12 Palestinians were wounded during protests, amid heightened tensions in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Orwah Hammad, 14, shot in the northern West Bank village of Silwad, is the second Palestinian teen to be killed by the Israeli military in eight days.

Bahaa Samir Badr, 13, was killed last week in the village of Beit Laqia.

5-year-old Palestinian girl was also hit and killed by a car driven by an Israeli settler in the West Bank on Oct. 19.

The Israeli military, responding to Hammand’s death, said soldiers “prevented an attack” by opening fire on a Palestinian who was throwing fire-bombs at traffic on a highway.

A relative identified Hammad as a U.S. national who was born in New Orleans, the Associated Press reported.

Israelis  kidnapping and burning alive a Palestinian teenager in east Jerusalem (pouring gasoline in his mouth), sparking riots.

The kidnappings set off a series of events that led to the 50-day Gaza war, which left more than 2,100 Palestinians and 71 Israelis, mostly sodiers, dead.

On Wednesday, a 21-year-old Palestinian from the village of Silwan crashed his car into a crowd of people at a light-rail stop killing a 3-month-old Israeli. The driver was shot and killed by Israeli forces.

Father dragged off by Israelis for lack of drinking water:  5 year-old Khaled screaming “baba, baba!”

It was the hottest week of the year. All Fadel Jaber wanted was some water for his family. But Fadel lives in the occupied West Bank, where the Israeli government has redirected water pipes to provide swimming pools for Jewish settlers and empty faucets for Palestinians like Fadel.

Alice Jay of Avaaz.org posted this Auguat 6, 2013:

When the Israeli forces dragged Fadel off for taking water, his heartbroken 5-year-old son Khaled could be heard screaming “baba, baba!” as his dad was torn away.

This is daily life for Palestinians living under the brutal fist of martial law where their land and water has been stolen by settlers and they have no basic human rights.

After years of violence and hopelessness, a movement is growing in Palestine — a nonviolent resistance seeking the same thing that all Israelis already have: freedom, dignity and a state of their own.

The images of 5-year-old Khaled screaming out for his father as the Israeli security forces dragged him off are hard to look at.

This is daily life for Palestinians living in the segregated, military-controlled West Bank.
For years, the media has focused on Palestinian militants, and to this day, extremists on both sides are pushing peace further out of reach.

But what’s lost in all that vitriol are the loving families like Fadel’s that just want a normal life. Now, those families are stepping forward, leading peaceful marches, organizing sit-ins, and working with Israeli activists to seek justice and freedom.

In response, the Israeli military has thrown them in jail, beaten up organizers, and ripped children from their beds.

The kinds of pressures the US is exercising on apartheid Israel?

هيدي  اللي بيحكولها "ضغوط أمريكية على الجانب الاسرائيلي !!"
هيدي اللي بيحكولها “ضغوط أمريكية على الجانب الاسرائيلي !!”

Days ago, I went to the West Bank to meet with these brave, peaceful people. When I proposed that our community could come to their aid, their eyes lit up. They need funds for lawyers when they are jailed on spurious charges, cameras to document abuses, training in media skills and nonviolent tactics, and campaigners to take this local protest global. These families are the real hope.

This occupation has gone on for too long and for too long the resolution of this conflict has been controlled by extremists on both sides. But today, there are a few things most people agree on:

first, both the Israelis and the Palestinians should each be entitled to a state; and

second, the treatment of the Palestinians in the occupied territories violates every sense of justice we have, from international law to basic common sense.

Even hard-line retired Israeli national security officials agree.
The current Israeli government is only making things worse: While they pay lip service to peace talks and a two-state solution, they expand more settlements in the West Bank, making a two-state solution permanently impossible.

And the Israeli military subjects Palestinians in the occupied territories to a whole different set of laws than the Jewish settlers who occupy those lands, even throwing children into prison for months at a time.
The best hope for ending this injustice and finally reaching peace is this peaceful resistance movement. Here are a few of the ways we can support them:

  • Support life-saving legal aid to help nonviolent leaders defend themselves from trumped up charges and kangaroo military courts;
  • Bring in civil disobedience experts from other movements to share strategies and tactics with communities across the West Bank;
  • Provide media equipment and trainings to leaders so they can both document abuses and get the word out to the world about this hopeful, inspiring movement;
  • Hire top-notch campaigners on the ground to provide ongoing support to this movement, scale actions across the West Bank, and engage our global community to take this movement from local to global;
  • Livestream their nonviolent actions on our site and organise a global day of action across the world.

In our history we have seen how nonviolent movements have freed peoples across the world — Gandhi’s movement in India, Dr. King’s movement in the US, and Mandela’s movement in South Africa. We know that it can work, and indeed in this case it’s our only hope.

Let’s give this inspiring movement the global solidarity it needs to succeed.

If enough of us pledge €4 now,  we can boost the peaceful movement over the extremist ones and give Khaled a future worthy of his father’s dreams. Avaaz will only process the pledges if we get enough to make a real difference:
https://secure.avaaz.org/en/palestine_rpr_enndc/?bFAfecb&v=27709

The Avaaz community has been unwavering in its support for freedom, justice and conflict resolution across the world.

Today, one of the most virulent bastions of injustice on the planet is the Israeli government’s occupation of Palestinian lands. But even there, hope springs. And together, we can be a part of the generation that brings freedom and peace to two peoples, betrayed so often by governments, both of whom so desperately need it.

Let’s show what our community can do. With hope and determination,
