One might have assumed from the declarations by Ehud Olmert's government that construction had been suspended and that efforts were being made to reach a peace agreement to include withdrawal from most of the West Bank. From the complaints by the settlers' leadership as well, one might have concluded that there was a freeze on building and that the settler youth were really and truly homeless.
    But quite different things are happening in the territories. ..

    Last Tuesday should have been a day of mourning for those who love nature and the environment.
    But for some reason, it passed quietly. On that day, two decisions were made. One was widely publicized:
    to establish a new Arab city in the Galilee. The second passed easily, with no media fanfare:
    to establish a new town in the eastern part of the Lachish region.
    The first decision was unnecessary. It came after Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit visited Umm al-Fahm.
    In his eagerness to please the residents, Sheetrit announced he had ordered his ministry's staff to examine
    establishing a new Arab city in the Galilee.
    Given our reality (a declared policy of "Judaizing the Galilee" and ministers who are replaced every two to three years),
    it seems we will have peace with the Palestinians before a new Arab city arises. Nevertheless,
    it is worth examining the matter in principle. ...

     When Ehud Olmert warns that the world could impose a "South African solution" on Israel if two states are not created, side by side, he is tacitly admitting that expansion of the settlements is making Israel look increasingly like an apartheid regime.
    The agreement to withdraw, or to make "painful concessions," as it is sanctimoniously called, is therefore less painful than any other alternative. The only question is whether another Yitzhak Rabin can be found, who is capable of really halting, not just suspending, the construction of settlements, to leave the Palestinians some territory in which to establish Palestine. ..

    WHILE Olmert was on the way to Annapolis, the settlers carried out a pogrom in the West Bank village of Funduk.
    WHILE the leaders shook hands in Annapolis , the Israeli army killed eight Palestinians.
    WHILE Olmert expressed "understanding for the sufferings of the Palestinians", the blockade that starves the population there went on.
    Olmert gave the conference a wreath of beautiful promises. He must prove that they are not rubber checks.

    Haaretz 15.11.2007: Democracy first Israel needs to be a sovereign state, not a Jewish one
    Still a democracy? Shulamit Aloni
    The government of Israel, with all due respect, does not represent the Jewish people but rather the citizens of the State of Israel who elected it. Israel is a sovereign state, which is still considered to be a democracy. In other words, it is a state for all of its citizens. Therefore it must not demand of the Palestinians to recognize it as a Jewish state, because in that way it would be declaring that any citizen whose mother is not Jewish or who did not convert with our strict Orthodox rabbis is a second-rate citizen, and his rights as a human being and a citizen are not ensured.
    The Jews are a people but not a nation, they are a religious ethnic group or as respected a tribe as may be. The Jewish citizens of Britain, including the Orthodox among them, are British, and that is what is written in their passports and in the British population registry....

    Opposition to young Arabs volunteering for national service unfortunately unites all Arab MKs. An Arab rap group has composed a song protesting the possibility, rallies have been held, signs have been posted, and MK Jamal Zahalka has said he will consider anyone who volunteers a "leper." One can understand the refusal to cooperate with an establishment that has discriminated against Arabs since the inception of the state. But those who sincerely want to promote equality between Jewish and Arab citizens cannot support such an isolationist attitude

    Such a statement is proper for a political party, not for a military body.
    For 40 years now, the Israeli army fulfils an eminently political function in the Palestinian territories.
    No wonder that it is now the strongest political force in Israel.

    WHENEVER I am asked if I am optimistic about an end to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, I say that I am not. Optimism requires clear signs that things are changing - meaningful words and unambiguous actions that point to real progress. I do not yet hear enough meaningful words, nor do I yet see enough unambiguous deeds to justify optimism.
    However, that does not mean I am without hope. I am a Christian. I am constrained by my faith to hope against hope, placing my trust in things as yet unseen. Hope persists in the face of evidence to the contrary, undeterred by setbacks and disappointment. Hoping against hope, then, I do believe that a resolution will be found. It will not be perfect, but it can be just; and if it is just, it will usher in a future of peace. ..

    Mariya Aman, a Palestinian girl who is almost 6 years old, is an intifada survivor. Until the age of four years and nine months she had a
    normal childhood in Gaza. Her father, Hamdi, worked in construction in Israel for years. On May 20, 2006, Maria and her family took a
    drive in their car to visit her sick aunt. At the exact same time, the Israel Defense Forces tried to assassinate Islamic Jihad's
     Mohammed Dahdouh. An Israel Air Force plane circling above Gaza fired a missile at his car, which was traveling through Gaza City.
    But the missile hit the Amans' car, depriving Mariya of her mother, her 6-year-old brother, her grandmother and her uncle. A second brother,
     Muaman, 4, sustained moderate injuries. Mariya was critically wounded in her spine. She was left completely paralyzed, and her Israeli doctors
     determined that she would never be able to talk or even breathe on her own, much less walk, run or jump. Mariya is on a respirator at

    The Arab Peace Initiative offers a historic vision and a historic compromise: In exchange for an end to 40 years of Israeli occupation, full withdrawal to the June 4, 1967 borders, establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, and a just and agreed-upon solution to the plight of the Palestinian refugees based on UN Resolution 194, Arab states would provide a comprehensive and sustainable peace based on ending the conflict, achieving regional stability and security for all, and full acceptance and normalization of relations with Israel.

    Six months prior to the Six-Day War, the heads of the Mossad, Military Intelligence and the Foreign Ministry explored the possibility of Israel occupying the West Bank. Various scenarios that might lead to such an outcome were discussed, such as the fall of King Hussein's regime in Jordan, an Iraqi invasion of Jordan or a Palestinian uprising. At the end of the deliberations, all were in accord that the occupation of the West Bank would be contrary to Israel's national interest. They concluded that Israel would reap nothing good from ruling over the Palestinians, only bad - including an erosion of the country's Jewish majority and a violent uprising against the occupation.

    Israel rejects Amnesty report urging end to West Bank fence

    Vice Premier Shimon Peres Monday rejected a special Amnesty International report which urged Israel to dismantle the West Bank fence, declaring that suicide bombings had been curtailed almost entirely since the barrier was erected.
    In a report timed to coincide with this week's 40th anniversary of the 1967 Six Day War, Amnesty on Monday also called for Israel to dismantle West Bank settlements and roadblocks, for the Palestinians to end attacks on Israeli civilians and for the international community to monitor both sides. ...
    The Amnesty report also urged Israel to rescind other measures in the West Bank, including IDF and police checkpoints. Apart from the fence, "The movement of Palestinians is constrained by a host of other restrictions, including over 500 checkpoints and blockades, and a network of roads for Israeli settlers to use (which are) off-limits to Palestinians, the 45-page Amnesty report said. ...

    The report includes the testimonies of nine Palestinians who were arrested by the Israel Defense Forces and Shin Bet between 2004 and 2005, including one that charged police investigators with severe sexual abuse.
    The prisoners interviewed complain of beatings, painful sitting positions for long periods of time and being tied up painfully, among other things.

However, this proposal, if it becomes law, is liable to have serious implications.
    The current oath reads: "I swear to be loyal to the State of Israel and to fulfill in good faith my mission in the Knesset." Under the proposed law, an elected member would be required to take the following vow: "I swear to be loyal to the Jewish and democratic state of Israel, its values and its symbols and to fulfill in good faith my mission in the Knesset."

    Memorial posters decorate the walls of the Rafidiya government hospital in Nablus, covering earlier posters of countless young people

     bullet that struck its mother, and the caption - "Who gave you the right to steal his life?"
    The killing of the unborn child, Daoud, by Israel Defense Forces troops raises a series of moral, legal and philosophical questions.
    Is the killing of a fetus manslaughter? Is it murder? And how old is the victim? But all these questions are dwarfed by the woman lying

    Jewish settlers. Many of those referred to fled during the second intifada, beginning in September 2000.
    The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) and B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Civil Rights in the

    Currently, freedom of movement and access for Palestinians within the West Bank is the exception rather than the norm

    Israeli Policy Makes a Two-State Solution Less Likely Summary of CNI Foundation "Public Hearing" with Jeff Halper and Naim Ateek
    By Carlton Cobb February 16, 2007
    Two Israeli peace activists told an audience in Washington, DC, this week that, as long as current Israeli policies continue, a real two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is increasingly unlikely and perhaps impossible. The speakers were the Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek, founder and director of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem, and Jeff Halper, founder and coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD). Halper and Ateek spoke at the National Press Club on Monday, February 12th, 2007, at the CNI Foundation's 22nd "public hearing" to bring a much-needed debate about U.S. Middle East policy to Washington, DC.

     200,000 Jews to the occupied territories - perhaps more than any other person. The settlement enterprise owes a great historic debt to Kollek.

    Included in the manifesto -- the first ever produced by the community's supreme political body, known as the High Follow-Up Committee --
     are calls for Israel to be reformed from a Jewish state that privileges its Jewish majority into "a state of all its citizens" and for sweeping changes
     to a national system of land control designed to exclude Palestinian citizens from influence. ....

    The temples of the occupation By Meron Benvenisti

    So far, of the dozens of checkpoints promised to be removed from the West Bank in a "gesture" to Mahmoud Abbas, not a single
     checkpoint has been dismantled.
    It will be interesting to see what excuse they come up with after the weather improves. The plan to remove the roadblocks has been delayed
    over some excuse or another for several years, and in the meantime their number has multiplied. We can assume with reasonable certainty
     that the newest attempt to ease the lives of the Palestinians will fail like its predecessors, because the regime of roadblocks is not a matter
    of a marginal gesture, nor a matter of quantity, whose reduction is likely to signal change in the situation prevailing in the occupied territories. ..

    Arabs in north get 10% of budget for rebuilding region

    A new report released on Wednesday accuses the government of allocating Arab communities only 10 percent -
    instead of the 30 percent pledged - of the budgets for rebuilding Israel's north in the wake of the war in Lebanon.
    The Mossawa Advocacy Center for Arab Citizens in Israel said that out of a total of NIS 4.25 billion only
    NIS 400 million had been allocated to the Arab sector. Mossawa based its report on data collected from official government decisions
    and the 2007 State Budget bill. The Prime Minister's Office Director General Ra'anan Dinur declared after the war that the state would
    rebuild communities damaged in the war.

    Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter said in remarks broadcast Monday that Israeli policy in the West Bank represented instances of
    apartheid worse even that those that once held sway in South Africa.
    Carter's comments were broadcast on Israel Radio, which played a tape of an interview with the ex-president, but did not specify to 
    whom Carter was speaking. But has made similar remarks in recent interviews, such as one to CBC television.....

     CBC News December 9, 2006
    Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter says the decision by Canada and other nations to withhold money from the Hamas-led Palestinian
     government is "a crime."
    Israel and western donors such as Canada have demanded Hamas renounce violence, recognize Israel's right to exist and accept past peace agreements. Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction despite its stated offer of a long-term truce, rejects the conditions.
    "It's a crime against the people of Palestine," Carter told CBC News in an exclusive interview from New York.
    "For Canada and others to punish the Palestinian people because they voted for their candidates of choice, I think is literally a crime."  .

    Israel has killed 2,300 Gazans over the past six years, including 300 in the four months since an Israeli soldier, Corporal Gilad Shalit,
    was captured in a cross-border raid by Palestinian fighters on June 25. The wounded can be counted in the tens of thousands. Most
    of the casualties are civilians, many of them children.The killing continues on a daily basis - by tank and sniper fire, by air and sea bombardment,
    and by undercover teams in civilian clothes sent into Arab territory to ambush and murder, an Israeli specialty perfected over the past several decades.

     Even the harshest critics of Peretz have to acknowledge the important contribution he has made: He has demonstrated that the position of defense
     minister is completely superfluous. It is possible to go to war, withdraw forces, pulverize Gaza, deploy vis-a-vis Iran, and even control the West Bank
     without a defense minister. It suddenly becomes apparent that an answering machine at the defense minister's office is sufficient.
     Fact: Peretz has faded away, yet all of these things occurred.

     By A.Harel, M. Grinberg and Yoav Stern, Haaretz and Agencies
    Gaza Strip residents said Israel Defense Forces troops shot dead a Palestinian woman in a Gaza village on Friday where soldiers and militants clashed.
    The incident came after at least eight Palestinians were killed Thursday in two separate IDF operations in the Gaza Strip.
    Palestinian doctors said the woman was shot by an Israeli sniper while she was standing outside her home in southern Gaza. The IDF said troops in the area identified two gunmen east approaching the force east of Khan Yunis and opened fire, hitting both of them, but was not aware of a woman being hit.

    A respected doctor - and a suspicious Arab By Ruth Sinai

    save the lives of Jews and Arabs. No one there examines his identity card. No one hints that his life here is conditional.
    Dr. Darawshe directs the hospital's emergency department. Each year, 125,000 patients pass through the department - including the sick,
    accident and terror victims, and war casualties. Darawshe sometimes resuscitates three patients in an hour. He can count on one hand the
     number of times a sick or wounded Jewish patient refused to be treated by him because he is Arab. There is something in pain, worry,
    sorrow and near-death experiences that unites everyone, he says. "Heart attack victims do not differentiate between Jew and Arab," he says.

    NEW YORK - The human rights situation for Palestinians has deteriorated to a new low, a United Nations rights expert said yesterday, blaming the West for contributing to the "tragic" situation in Gaza and the West Bank.
    John Dugard, a South African civil rights lawyer, said Israel is largely responsible for the "intolerable" situation of the Palestinians.
    "I hope that my portrayal of hardships experienced by such people will trouble the consciences of those accustomed to turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the suffering of the Palestinian people," Dugard told the UN Human Rights Council.
    "Gaza is a prison and Israel seems to have thrown away the key," Dugard said.

The report of the state commission of inquiry, headed by Justice Theodor Or, that was written in the wake of the events of October 2000 in which 12 Arab Israelis and one Palestinian were shot and killed by the security forces failed to live up to the expectations of the families and the Arab public: It made do with casting minimal blame on small cogs in the system, and also on the elected representatives of the Arab public, and placed none on the government echelon that decided that roads had to be opened even at the cost of human lives.

It is an image of a country threatened by traitors from within (Arab Israelis, hoping for a victory of the Axis of Evil whose center is in Damascus), by Hamas operatives (who aspire to destroy it) and by murderous Lebanese (Hezbollah).

    Arab Israelis are crossing a line
    By Uzi Benziman
    Organizations that further Jewish-Arab relations in Israel have become increasingly exposed, since July 12, to an intensifying emotional confrontation that is taking place between the two peoples. From the Jewish Israeli point of view, the second Lebanon War constituted an unassailably justified response to a crass violation of Israel's sovereignty. To Israeli Arabs, the Israel Defense Forces operation was unnecessary, disproportionate and caused abominable injustices to their Lebanese brethren. The clash between these two viewpoints rekindles the question on whether Israel's Jews and Arabs can continue to live together on the basis of their single common denominator - a shared civil society.

    The ritual is already known in advance: Balad party chairman Dr. Azmi Bishara takes some kind of initiative, or does something or other. Immediately there is an item about it on a major news Web site, the talkbacks heat up, MKs from the right compete with one another over belligerent reactions, and an efficient journalist collects some of the statements and publishes them from top to bottom, in order of the degree of extremism. Israeli "public opinion" awakens, the television stations broadcast angry follow-ups, and the presenter accompanies the report with a look of, "Oy, what are we going to do with him now?" The next day, the government and the legal establishment join in and get the investigation process under way. All we have to do now is to wait for the indictment and the petitions to the High Court of Justice.

If he goes even a few dozen meters from his home, he will be arrested by Border Policemen, many of whom are permanently stationed in that area.
    When Odeh Aliada of the unrecognized village of Bir Daj was hit by a car, he rejected the driver's urgings that he go to a hospital, even though he had suffered internal injuries. His fear of the Israeli system was greater than his fear of injury.
    When Ghazem proposed marriage to his beloved, her father told him that there would be something to talk about only if he acquired an identity card.

     a case for an investigation into the injuries amid suspicions by the medics that the injuries were inflicted by what they claim may have been unidentified
