Israelís Gaza Blockade Is To BlameJohn Glaser - AntiWar - "Every single Israeli incursion or attack on Gaza is accompanied by the same narrative: Israel fairly responded to unprovoked Palestinian rocket fire. With Israelís previous two attacks on Gaza, we know Israel actually broke the ceasefire, not Hamas. Many of the press reports donít make any mention at all of the sadistic blockade Israel has imposed on Gaza for years, which is starving Gazans of daily sustenance and is by most accounts illegal under international law"30/12/2013

Palestinian-American denied entry into Israel, told "There`s no such thing as Palestine"Yara Karmalawy - IMEMC "I finally had my passport handed back to me and was once again told that I would not be allowed entry into Israel. Despite all my efforts, my background was going to keep me visiting my homeland. Somehow the same young men and women who I could have been in school with had my mother stayed in Jerusalem and raised me there, were the ones to deny me entry. The saddest part to me is that I know my experience is only a very minor example of the challenges that Palestinians face on a daily basis." ca20/12/2013

ĎAll the Way to Hollandí: The Routine at Qalandiya CheckpointTamar Fleishman - The Palestine Chronicle - But to those who had the misfortune of getting picked, and were forced to leave their vehicle, stand aside and watch a dog being led to their car, how it sniffs the tires, circles the exterior, jumps on the car, enters the trunk and the inside of the car, gets the seats dirty with his feet, crawls under the seats, drools everywhere and not stopping until it finds the scented ball that the trainer left for it, for these people this isnít routine. For them this is a humiliation, an invasion to their personal space and an act of desecration according to their religion. Because according to Islam the dog is impure.-rh 11/12/2013
