Ya Allah selamatkan Palestin

What is Balfour Declaration?
November 2, 1917: The Balfour Declaration

What is new in the memory of the Balfour Declaration?

We were taught in our schools that the Balfour Declaration is a promise made by someone who does not own [something], to [grant it to] someone who does not deserve it. Nevertheless, we do not know who Balfour is. Which is the party that does not own [the grant] and which is the party that does not deserve it?
After we realize the dimensions of the Palestinian cause, we become deeply convinced that the Balfour Declaration was in fact a declaration of a legitimate resistance and the starting point of the struggle of a nation, not a certain faction.
I contemplated the name, Herbert Samuel, a Jewish British minister who asked his government in 1908 C.E. (nine years before the Balfour Declaration) to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. He spent the next nine years attempting to put his memorandum into action until a four-member committee was formed to consider his proposal. On November 12, 1917 C.E. this committee issued what they called the Balfour Declaration, after the name of the British Foreign Secretary at that time, Arthur James Balfour.
Herbert Samuel spent eight years trying to implement his idea diligently. Who was behind this man? Which party was he working for? What is the relationship between international Zionism and the Jews since the Basel Conference?
His only aim was to have his idea implemented, because this was his historic chance before he lost the opportunity of being a British minister in the British government. Indeed, his memorandum was transformed from a dream into a reality and Britain made this ominous declaration without even mentioning the name of Herbert Samuel. However, the name is insignificant if it would prevent the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine!
Palestine was then put under the British Mandate in 1918 C.E. First, Palestine was governed by the Occupied Enemy Territory Administration, but in July 1920 C.E, the military administration was replaced by a civilian one headed by a High Commissioner.
Guess who the Commissioner was? The first High Commissioner of Palestine was Herbert Samuel!
What was Herbert doing behind the scenes until he succeeded in irrigating his idea and planting it in Palestine?
The first sparkle of resistance appeared after the farce of the League of Nations consenting to the declaration. The Palestinian people realized the disaster that was awaiting them, hence, the Jaffa Rebellion erupted everywhere in Palestine marking the beginning of the Palestinian struggle. Then it was crowned with Al-Buraq Revolution, which started at Al-Buraq Wall.
At that time, the League of Nations officially declared that the Wall and the adjacent pavement and the Moroccan Quarter, are solely owned by the Muslim Waqf (endowments).
Today, however, Israel has fooled Bush, Blair and Sarkozy to make the world believe that they own the stolen Wall!
These revolutions erupted in protest against the Balfour Declaration and represented the beginning of the struggle of the Palestinian people. Nevertheless, this was not a completely new experiment, because when Napoleon was defeated in the face of Acre’s resistance and after killing two thousand Palestinians, pestilence plagued his soldiers. However, he wanted to return to his country as a victorious leader, so he allied with the Jews around the world and allowed them to make the first wave of Jewish emigration to Palestine. He even promised to give them a state from Acre to Alexandria.
However, Napoleon died followed by Balfour and the resistance has remained until today as the popular option that haunts those who turned the trenches into negotiation tables and lost both peace and land. Advocates of the negotiation option abandoned the Right of Return.
So, what will they say to the children who have keys given to them by their grandfathers after pledging to return to their homeland?
Today, they abandon resistance and give their weapons to their enemies to kill them. It seems that they have forgotten that Israel has displaced about one million people out of the 1.5 million Arabs at that time. What are the Arab heroes waiting for?
Do they wait until we hear about the collapse of Al-Aqsa Mosque as we heard about the fall of Baghdad? Do they wait until we hear about the demolition of Al-Aqsa Mosque as we heard about the demolition of Kabul?
It seems that they know us well. A Zionist minister once said, “The Arabs’ cases last only for three days: the first for condemnation, the second for wailing and the third for silence.”

These people are never interviewed on television, they are never worshiped on Facebook, they don't have facebook, because they don't have a computer, and they don't have electricity, they dont even have walls or roofs! But they are the real Heroes. THEY are the ones being targeted by Israeli drones, THEY are the ones loosing family members on a weekly basis, THEY are the ones living in darkness with spiders running up the broken walls, in over crowded refugee camps in the dark, with broken roofs, no running water and broken sewage pipes.

Netanyahu: Iran strike will be good for Arabs.

He says it removes a potential threat and eases tensions across Mideast

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought on Tuesday to convince Arab states that an Israeli military strike on Iran would benefit them, removing a potential threat and easing tensions across the Middle East.

Netanyahu has made a number of veiled threats to attack Iran’s nuclear programme and has appealed to the United States and the United Nations to set a limit for Tehran on its further development.

In an interview published on Tuesday with French magazine Paris Match, Netanyahu said such a strike would not worsen regional tensions, as many critics have warned.

“Five minutes after, contrary to what the sceptics say, I think a feeling of relief would spread across the region,” he said.

“Iran is not popular in the Arab world, far from it, and some governments in the region, as well as their citizens, have understood that a nuclear armed Iran would be dangerous for them, not just for Israel,” he said.

Israel, widely believed to be the Middle East’s only nuclear power, believes Tehran intends to build atomic weapons and has consistently urged the West to increase up sanctions. Iran says it is enriching uranium for peaceful energy purposes only.

The United States and other Western countries have rejected Netanyahu’s demand to set a limit for Iran and have urged him to refrain from military action to give diplomacy and sanctions a chance to work.

Netanyahu, who is running for re-election in January at the head of the right-wing Likud party, told the United Nations last month that a strike could wait until spring or summer when he said Tehran might be on the brink of building an atomic bomb.

During his two-day visit to France, Netanyahu will travel to the southern city of Toulouse with President Francois Hollande for a ceremony of remembrance for the victims of an Islamist gunman who killed seven people there in March, including three Jewish children.

A walk on the wild side

Two young Palestinian girls took a shortcut to the Old City of Hebron from their homes on the far side of Shuhada Street, the main street of the Old City, which is now an 'Israeli only' street, because of the Israeli colonies established there.

To avoid a circuitous route to the Israeli army checkpoint at the far end of the street, the young teenagers cut through the Musl...See More

Two Israeli warships cross Suez Canal: Egyptian media.

Two Israeli warships, escorted by Egyptian vessels, have crossed the Suez Canal on their way to the Red Sea, Egyptian media say.

A senior official at the Suez Canal Authority in Egypt made the announcement on Tuesday, confirming that the two Israeli vessels sailed in the canal on Monday to an unknown destination, Haaretz reported. 

The official told an Egyptian website that the ships--Eilat and Kidon-- left the Haifa Port on their way to the Red Sea, but the purpose of their voyage was not revealed.

According to Egyptians, it was not the first time that Israeli warships used the Suez Canal since in recent years similar voyages had taken place.

In response to the report, the spokesperson of the Israeli regime’s Defense Forces (IDF) said that Israeli Navy ships “operate around the Red Sea. The ships in the area operate according to the Navy's yearly plan.”

Also on March 13, Egyptian al-Ahram newspaper reported that the two Israeli warships and a French vessel left Port Said north of the Suez Canal after crossing the canal under heavy security.

Israeli forces arrest 24 across the West Bank.

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 24 people across the West Bank overnight Tuesday, Israel's army said.

Seven people were arrested in Nablus, five in Ramallah, three in Jenin, three in Hebron, two in the south Hebron hills, two in Tuqu, one in Anata and one in Yatta, an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

They were detained "on suspicion of illegal activities", the spokeswoman added.

Palestinians living in the occupied territories are routinely arrested by Israeli forces, usually on the pretext of security.

Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.

There are 4,596 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli jails as of October 2012, according to Addameer. This figure includes 184 administrative detainees held without charge, 189 children and nine women.

Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has systematically committed genocide, and incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians.
Yet mainstream media is silent on this! WE have to be the media!

Travelers must register to exit Gaza.

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Travelers hoping to exit the Gaza Strip must register in advance, a border official said Wednesday.

Crossings director Maher Abu Sabha told Ma'an that the registration process was temporarily cancelled during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, but the policy is back in force now.
Abu Sabha described a "state of chaos" during the holiday which prompted the reversal. Hundreds of people traveled through the crossing during Eid, so the process was suspended. 

Starting Saturday and until Wednesday, the crossing expects to welcome nearly 4,000 Hajj pilgrims. They will return in batches of 500, Abu Sabha said.
