Martina Anderson, MEP for the Six Counties, said:

“Gaza is once again at crisis point, and millions worldwide are protesting in solidarity with the people of Gaza amid this appalling carnage.

“The Joint resolution by the EU Parliament on the situation in Gaza is an awful attempt to neutralise the onslaught and to avoid criticising Israel and it ignores the causes of the conflict. This EPP and S&D cosy consensus is disgraceful.

“The UN must recognise that Israeli actions have violated international law. For too long the UN and the wider international community has watched the blockade of Gaza; watched an apartheid wall being built; watched as road blocks were erected and segregated buses introduced.

“We have witnessed Israel demolishing thousands of Palestinian homes and force thousands of families from their land to build Israeli settlements.

All of this is in violation of the 1993 Oslo Accord.”

Oslo accords between Palestinians and Israeli: 20 year-old already? What was achieved?

US secretary of state Kerry has restarted the negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis, and we heard nothing about “these secret negotiations” and whether they resumed, and for how long, and how serious is the US administration to pull off these negotiations and what coercive mechanisms on Israel it has in its bags…

Noura Erakat posted on FB this Sept 13, 2013:

The Oslo accords are twenty years old today, during the Clinton administration in 1993, between Rabin and Arafat in the White House Lawn.

It was supposed to gradually relinquish territories to the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.

Could anything signify its failure more boldly than the fact that no one cares?

That may be one more of its many successes to contain and remove this conflict from central consideration.

Rather than resolve the conflict, Oslo has managed the conflict while making Israel’s settler-expansionism less egregious to the international community.

Talks have supplanted resistance, process has supplanted substance.

The result is a dire situation where the possibility of two states is dead: Palestinians are more fragmented politically and culturally from one another, and the Palestinian leadership has become a central part of the occupation regime rather than the political force that leads a multi-faceted strategy including grassroots, diplomatic, legal, and media tactics to resist it.

A few facts to consider:

1. Military Order 1650 institutionalizes separation of Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank and “deports” Palestinians from Gaza found in West Bank back to Gaza further entrenching fragmentation.

2. 85% of the Annexation Wall (or Wall of Shame) runs through the West Bank and expropriates 13% of the land;

3. Settler-population has grown from 200,000 in 1993 (time of the signing of the Oslo accord) to 600,000 today.

4. Settlement expansion is now entrenched in 62% of West Bank (all of Area C).

5. Israel has declared 18% of the West Bank into a firing zone where first soldiers practice shooting and then leave to make room for a new Jewish-only settlement.

6. Gaza has been under full naval blockade and land siege for 6 years and counting.

7. Lack of control over water has led to forced displacement of farmers and cost the Palestinian economy 110,000 jobs and 10% of its annual GDP.

8. Spending on agriculture has dropped from 28.5% of Palestinian national budget in 1993 to less then 5% today. In contrast, spending on security is up to 30%.

Oslo has made all this possible while neutralizing a Palestinian leadership from resisting these conditions.

Even the most ardent supporters of the two states solution should oppose Oslo.

More of the same is only a recipe for long-term instability and insecurity.

We should celebrate this anniversary by making sure it’s the last year we commemorate Oslo.

Jewish Colonies in Palestine: Major Dumping Grounds (April 24, 2009)

The Oslo accord was signed in 1993 for a Palestinian homeland.  There were 112 colonies in the Palestinian land for a total of 265,000 Jewish colons.  In 2006, 150 colonies were established with a total of 453,000 colons and new expansions are already decreed by the State of Israel

The successive Israeli governments, regardless of ideology, were the instigators for the planning and funneling of the funds and budgets. The Israeli governments had many motivations:

1. nationalist for occupying and extending “Great Israel”,

2. for better defensive positions,

3. for demographic modifications, and

4. for economic greed. 

Initially, most of the “savage” colonies were erected along the Jordanian border. Then Goush Emounim wanted to settle in Samaria.  As the Likoud government of Begin came to power in 1977, the rate of colonies increased to create de facto status that would prevent the establishment of a Palestinian State.  The fact is that the colons were enticed to relocate for economic reasons and the availability of financial facilities.

In 2005, General Shaul Mofaz, Defense Minister, charged his deputy in the ministry, General Baruch Spiegel, to gather information on the colonies as reliable data base. Ehoud Barak would not publish the findings on ground of “State Security”. 

The daily Ha’Aretz managed to secure the data base of all colonies arranged in alphabetical order with the following information:

1) original denomination (for example, urban implantation, rural, kibbutz…);

2) political affiliation (for example, Federation of Colons tied to the ultra-nationalist Herout, religious nationalist Amana, Labor Takama…),

3) population,

4) governmental decisions (for example, creation or extension,

5) land status  (for example, public land, private Palestinian land, old Jewish property…),

6) survey of the illegal posts at the proximity of the colony, and

7) the status of expansion work validated by the Israeli Administration.

The mayors of these colonies stated that nothing was done without government approval or encouragement.  The colons understand that if asked to vacate then they will vacate because they know now that they have built on private lands.

What the newer Zionist colons in the last decades failed to be informed is that these implantation are major dumping grounds for noxious and toxic wastes of the Industrial/Military complexes in the State of Israel. 

The neighboring Palestinians have realized that fact the hard way for many years due to increasing heath problems.  Israel is a major military hardware exporter that surpassed Britain this year.  The other booming sectors in Israel’s economy are the human slave trade and drug trade around the world: Israel is one of the main Carrefour for illicit trades.

The funds for these illegal colonies came from the budget of the State of Israel, from the financial aids of the successive US Administrations that amounted to two billions dollars a year for over 50 years, and the contributions of the Zionist sympathizers in the US and Europe. 

Every penny spent on the colonies was known by the US governments and the State of Israel.  In addition to financial aids from the US and the European governments, Israel received yearly 3 billions dollars in military ultra modern hardware; Germany is still delivering new submarines, cruisers, and torpedo launchers to the Israeli naval forces, for free, at the expense of the German citizens’ welfare.

Note: The German cargo transporter “Wehr Elbe” discharged 300 containers of military ammunition in Israel. The irony is that the US is delivering White Phosphorous bombs that caused the outcry of the international community for being dropped consistently on Gaza and burning thousands of Palestinians.  The “Wehr Elbe” resumed its mission to delivering other military cargo in Odessa (Ukraine). 

The previous Bush Administration has signed an accord with Israel for 25 billion dollars in free military aids!
