Palestinian children in the Israeli military detention system face physical and emotional abuse, with four out of five (86%) of them being beaten, and 69% strip-searched, according to research by Save the Children.
Nearly half (42%) are injured at the point of arrest, including gunshot wounds and broken bones.
Some report violence of a sexual nature and some are transferred to court or between detention centres in small cages.
It is estimated that there are between 500 and 1000 children held in Israeli military detention each year.

There are only so many things you can do in life, and if you think I’m going to spend my waking hours thinking about some decency in some Tory or other, forget it.

Don’t vote for a candidate just because you like them, or even love them.
Vote for the candidate or political party that you believe will make a world you want to live in.

The Palestinians try hard to forget when they should remember.
The Israelis try hard to remember when they should forget.
The Palestinians refuse to be victims.
The Israelis make sure that they remain the only victims.

Palestinian Boy Physically And Sexually Assaulted While In Israeli Custody.
Defence for Children International Palestine’s (DCIP) offices were raided after they reported the sexual assault of a 15-year-old by an interrogator while in Israeli custody.
In February 2021, the DCIP published a report documenting the physical and sexual assault against a 15-year-old Palestinian boy by an Israeli interrogator at Al-Mascobiyya interrogation and detention facility in January that year.
The DCIP reported that the detainee had been raped with an object by his interrogator and that he was made to stand against a wall where his interrogator inflicted severe pain on his genitals.
According to Ayed Abu Eqtaish, accountability programme director at DCIP, the NGO reported the assault to U.S. officials following hundreds of unresolved complaints filed with the Israeli authorities.
According to Eqtaish, the DCIP stopped filing complaints with the Israeli authorities as they would not allow a child giving witness statements to be accompanied by a lawyer.
Israeli authorities banned a Palestinian NGO after it reported the rape of the child to the U.S. State Department.
Following the complaint, DCIP offices were raided by Israeli forces and “sealed off” along with the offices of seven other Palestinian NGOs.
In October 2021, the DCIP was designated a terrorist organisation by Israeli authorities along with five other Palestinian NGOs.

We will not adopt the fantastic hypocrisy of modern conservatism which preaches the values of families and communities, while conducting a direct assault on them through reduced wages and conditions and job security.

In order to understand what’s really going on in the world today, you need to be open to the idea of discarding much of what you have been told by your government and the main media.

When people all over the world feel the need to hold mass protests just to persuade others that bombing and killing children is wrong, that is when you know that humanity has failed.
( Wilfred Soon )

Israel is like a murderer who kills someone, gets the victim’s blood all over his own clothes, and then starts screaming “help, help, I’m bleeding!” And then acts like he is the victim.
Israel’s approach to morality is “let’s not say we did it”.
They think that righteousness is denying the evil they do, but not stopping themselves from doing evil.
They believe that as long as they say they didn’t do it, or call it something else, like “self defence”, then somehow they’re not responsible.
With the full support of the warmongering U.S. and their puppets in the UK and EU, Israel think they are immune no matter what they do.

The fact is that almost everyone has access to the truth.
The problem is that most people don’t want to hear it.

It’s not just shit and urine that the Tory-privatised water companies are dumping in our rivers and on our beaches, killing millions of fish and wildlife, it’s also condoms, tampons, wet wipes, dangerous drugs, prescription medications, vomit, and anything else that people choose to flush down the loo.

Documents From Israeli Archives Reveal Illegal Biological Warfare.
On April 1, 1948, David Ben-Gurion wrote in his journal about “the development of science and speeding up its application in warfare.”
A month and a half later, he wrote about “biological materials” that were purchased for $2,000.
Only now, 74 years later, has a connection between these two entries come to light.
The disturbing story behind them was recently uncovered by historian Benny Morris and historian and Israel Prize laureate Benjamin Z. Kedar following extensive archival research.
Evidently, the excerpts from the diary of the man who would become Israel’s first prime minister are traces of his involvement in a secret operation to poison the drinking water of Arab communities during the War of Independence.
The newly unearthed documents show that this operation was much broader in scope than earlier believed and that other top military and political figures besides Ben-Gurion were involved.

One of the greatest achievements of the Tory Government, assisted by the Tory Media, is to steal huge amounts of public money, then blame it on immigrants, the sick and disabled, the homeless, Russia, China, people on benefits, the weather, and just about anything and anyone to cover up their greed, crimes, and corruption.

Stop telling lies about what Israel is doing.
Israel is not at War with Hamas, it is at War with the
Palestinian people, this is a Genocide.

The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.

The Harrowing Reality Of Israel’s Systematic Detention Of Palestinian Children.
Between November 24, 2023 to November 30, 2023 saw 105 hostages held by Hamas—both Israelis and foreign nationals—released in exchange for 240 Palestinian women and children.
The deal, which was brokered by Qatar and Egypt and took place across six exchanges, raised questions about why so many children were being held in Israeli prisons.
The reality is that the most common charge against children is throwing stones.
An estimated 10,000 Palestinian children have been held in military detention over the past 20 years, with Save the Children noting that they are “the only children in the world who are systematically prosecuted in military courts.”
The youngest child who was released by Israeli authorities during the ceasefire was Ahmad Salayme, a 14-year-old boy.
Salayme was arrested in May 2023 for throwing stones in a Jewish settlement in occupied East Jerusalem.
Settlements are considered illegal under international law.

If the Palestinian people really wish to decide that they will battle to the very end to prevent partition or annexation of even an inch of their ancestral soil, then I have to concede that that is their right.
I even think that a sixty-year rather botched experiment in marginal quasi-statehood is something that the Jewish people could consider abandoning.

Israeled  (verb) …
Taking something that isn’t yours, and then shamelessly pretending it belongs to you while playing the victim.

May life treat you exactly the same way you treat both humans and non-humans.
( Wilfred Soon )

Zionists are not Jews.
They pretend to be Jews and hide behind the religion of Judaism when they carry out their objectives and atrocities.
Jewish is not a nationality or race.
If you follow the religion of Judaism, or say you follow the religion of Judaism, you can identify as a Jew.
The same applies to other religions – you don’t need to be born in a particular region of the world, nor do you need to be of a particular race.

Israel has no right to self defence against a territory that it illegally occupies.
And I don’t recall one occupation when the occupier presented themselves as the victim – not only the victim, but the only victim.

Poverty exists not because we can’t feed the poor, but because we can’t satisfy the rich.

No matter how worthy the cause, it is robbery, theft, and injustice to confiscate the property of one person and give it to another to whom it does not belong.

The U.S. have made clear that they don’t care how many war crimes Israel participates in.
There will be no ceasefire until the U.S. achieves its geo-strategic objectives in the region, objectives which have been christened in the blood of

Well done to all the people who do their own research.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

I always have believed that we should not call it an Arab-Israeli issue or a Palestinian-Arab dispute or a peace negotiation.
I think we should call it what it is: an occupation of Palestine, full stop.
This is not a popular position in mixed company.

Decomposed Bodies Of Babies Found In Evacuated Hospital In Gaza.
The decomposed bodies of infants were found on hospital beds in the ICU ward of evacuated Al-Nasr hospital in Gaza.
Three of the infants were attached to the hospital machines and diapers and milk bottles were found next to the bodies
.A video in which four decomposed bodies could be seen was filmed on November 27, 2023 by journalist Mohamed Baalousha, a Gaza reporter for UAE-based news outlet Al Mashhad.
“As per Israeli forces direction, Al-Nasr hospital was evacuated on November 10, 2023,” several medical staff and health officials working there said.
The medical staff said they had to leave young children behind in the ICU as they had no means to safely move them.
The U.S. says that babies decomposing in incubators is a tragedy. The same word they use when their drone attacks kill civilians and children in say Afghanistan or Yemen.

If the U.S.A. saw what the U.S.A. is doing in the U.S.A., the U.S.A. would invade the U.S.A. to save the U.S.A. from the tyranny of the U.S.A.

Control in modern times requires more than force, more than law.
It requires that a population dangerously concentrated in cities and factories, whose lives are filled with cause for rebellion, be taught that all is right as it is.

Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French.
It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs.
Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home.

A Land Without A People For A People Without A Land.
Actually, and this was where I began to feel seriously uncomfortable, some such divine claim underlay not just ‘the occupation’ but the whole idea of a separate state for Jews in Palestine.
Take away the divine warrant for the Holy Land and where were you, and what were you?
Just another land-thief like the Turks or the British, except that in this case you wanted the land without the people.
And the original Zionist slogan, “a land without a people for a people without a land”, disclosed its own negation when I saw the densely populated Arab towns dwelling sullenly under Jewish tutelage.
You want irony? How about Jews becoming colonisers at just the moment when other Europeans had given up on the idea?
( Christopher Hitchens )

Our main problem is a lack of understanding of what it means to be human and that we are not separate from nature.

While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim.
It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there.
All they want is a central organisation for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states, a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.
( Adolf Hitler )

Great reminder that it’s mandatory for israeli women and men to join the israeli occupation army and stay till they’re 40.
Then these same people turn around and claim to be civilians.
At least half of all killed on Oct 7, 2023 were military, and we now know Israel killed many itself.

Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.
( John Stuart Mill )

There’s a Palestine that dwells inside all of us, a Palestine that needs to be rescued.
A free Palestine where all people regardless of colour, religion, or race coexist.
A Palestine where the meaning of the word “occupation” is only restricted to what the dictionary says rather than those plenty of meanings and connotations of death, destruction, pain, suffering, deprivation, isolation and restrictions that Israel has injected the word with.

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.

I think it was smart that you’re wary of using the word “terrorism,” and if you talk about the cycle of violence, or “an eye for an eye,” you could be perpetuating the idea that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a balanced conflict, instead of a largely unarmed people against the fourth most powerful military in the world.

The first thing you notice, coming to Israel from the Arab world, is that you have left the most courteous region of the globe and entered the rudest.

Questions always seem ‘hostile’ to a pathological liar.

The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.
The American mind simply has not come to a realisation of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.
