What Really Lies Behind Israel’s ‘No Occupation’ ReportJonathan Cook - Countercurrents "And on Sunday it emerged that Israel had begun a campaign against OCHA, the UN agency that focuses on humanitarian harm done to Palestinians from Israeli military and settlement activity, most of it in Area C. Israel has demanded details of where OCHA’s staff work and what projects it is planning, and is threatening to withdraw staff visas, apparently in the hope of limiting its activities in Area C. If the PA refuses to, or cannot, take on these remaining fragments of the West Bank, Israel may simply opt to turn back the clock and once again cultivate weak and isolated local leaders for each Palestinian city. The question is whether the international community can first be made to swallow Levy’s absurd conclusion." ca 20/7/2012

Open letter to Europan Commission President José Manuel BarrosoBNC--The Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC), the broadest Palestinian civil society coalition comprising the largest Palestinian mass organizations, trade unions, networks and NGOs, is writing ahead of your visit to Israel to urge you to refrain from entering into new agreements or any kind of upgrade in relations between the European Union and Israel. To do so would be to give license to Israel’s serious breaches of international law which violate the rights of the Palestinian people, foremost our right to self-determination. Continued EU “business as usual” engagement with Israel also violates the EU’s own international obligations. It comes at the expense of Palestinian rights and the EU’s standing in the region. dn8/7/2012

Quite the contrary. Zionist historian Walter Lacquer wrote that Shamir’s hostility to the British as the occupiers of Palestine, in his view the only obstacle to a Jewish state, meant that as ‘One of the central figures in Irgun’ he ‘believed that Britain not Germany was the main enemy. Consequently he refused to stop the fight against the mandatory power.` (A History of Zionism, p.376) dn1/7/2012
