- Maroc-Algérie, l'interminable guerre froide, Charlotte Bozonnet (Le Monde) - "Rabat s'est depuis longtemps assuré de solides soutiens, au premier rang desquels Paris. En 2013, un projet de résolution préparé par les Etats-Unis proposait d'élargir le mandat de la Minurso à la situation des droits de l'homme. Le Maroc avait obtenu son abandon. Il n'en a plus été question depuis". Oui, la France est le plus fidèle allié du Maroc pour dénier l'auto-détermination du peuple sahraoui, entériner l'annexion illégale du Sahara occidental par Rabat, et pour que l'ONU n'ait pas droit de regard sur les violations des droits de l'homme dans cette région. Mais la France se prive rarement du plaisir de donner des leçons de morale à l'Etat juif, au nom de l'auto-détermination des Palestiniens que Jérusalem empêcherait.

"Israël vient d'autoriser l'entrée de plus de 14.000 tonnes de matériaux de construction dans la bande de Gaza, la plus importante quantité admise dans l'enclave palestinienne depuis la guerre de l'été 2014, a indiqué un organe officiel israélien.
"762 camions doivent entrer dans la bande de Gaza, dont 354 chargés de matériaux de construction et les autres de denrées diverses", a indiqué un porte-parole du Cogat, l'organe du ministère de la Défense chargé de coordonner les activités israéliennes dans les Territoires palestiniens. Sur les 354 camions chargés de matériaux de construction et passant par le point de passage de Kerem Shalom réservé aux marchandises, 123 sont destinés à la reconstruction d'habitations détruites pendant le conflit et le reste servira aux projets d'organisations internationales et aux infrastructures, a-t-il précisé.
L'acheminement de ces matériaux est vital pour la reconstruction de Gaza, dont des secteurs entiers ont été réduits en ruines par la guerre de juillet-août 2014. Mais il est soumis à un contrôle draconien de la part d'Israël, inquiet que des matériaux ne servent par exemple à construire des tunnels utilisés pour des attaques. La destruction de ces tunnels était l'un des grands objectifs de l'offensive israélienne de 2014. [...]"

- Le Premier ministre britannique défend les opérations israéliennes à Gaza (Times of Israel)
http://fr.timesofisrael.com/le-premier-ministre-britannique-defend-les-attaques-israeliennes-a-gaza/
"Un peu plus d’une semaine avant les élections législatives de son pays, le dirigeant conservateur de Grande-Bretagne, le Premier ministre David Cameron, s’est déclaré « debout, aux côtés d’Israël et du droit d’Israël de se défendre ». Dans une interview accordé au journal juif britannique The Jewish Chronicle, Cameron oppose les tirs de roquettes du Hamas aux frappes israéliennes contre la bande de Gaza pendant la guerre de l’été dernier entre les deux parties.
« Evidemment, nous regrettons la perte de la vie partout où elle a lieu, mais je pense qu’il y a une différence importante – comme le Premier ministre Netanyahu l’a dit : Israël utilise ses armes pour défendre son peuple et le Hamas utilise son peuple pour défendre ses armes », a déclaré Cameron lors de l’interview, qui devrait être publiée dans son intégralité jeudi. « Ce que j’ai vu, ce sont des attaques aveugles qui ont lieu sur Israël. En tant que Premier ministre, se mettre à la place du peuple israélien, qui veut la paix mais qui doit faire face à ces attaques aveugles – renforce l’idée de l’importance d’être debout aux côtés d’Israël et du droit d’Israël de se défendre », a déclaré Cameron.
« Je crois fermement que cette équivalence que, parfois, les gens essaient de tirer lorsque ces attaques ont lieu est complètement fausse et injuste. Parce qu’Israël essaie de se défendre contre des attaques aveugles, tout en essayant d’arrêter les assaillants – et il y a une grande différence entre cela et la nature des attaques aveugles sur Israël. Je l’ai très clairement vu. Je l’ai vu très clairement en tant que Premier ministre et je pense qu’il est important d’en parler », a-t-il poursuivi.
Pendant la guerre de Gaza, le gouvernement Cameron a critiqué le bilan meurtrier à Gaza, où plus de 2 000 personnes ont été tuées, la grande majorité par des frappes israéliennes. Israël soutient que près de la moitié des morts étaient des combattants du Hamas et attribue le bilan élevé de civils tués au fait que les combattants de Gaza aient intégré leur infrastructure de guerre dans les zones résidentielles, alors que les Palestiniens et les Nations unies affirment que la plupart était des civils.

- Palestinian Antisemitism: Jewish plan to conquer the world‎; Judaism permits killing Gentiles (PMW)
http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=14613
"In a recent interview on Palestinian Authority TV about Israel's policies regarding the Gaza Strip, a Fatah spokesperson, Osama Al-Qawasmi, quoted the Russian forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as if it were a true document. Fatah spokesperson Osama Al-Qawasmi: "According to Israel's ideology, strategy and policy from 1956 until now, Gaza is outside the Israeli ideological thinking. Even in their Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] and even in their Bible [it says]: "Don't live in Gaza"." [Official PA TV, April 5, 2015] Click to view
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is an Antisemitic forgery describing how Jews allegedly plan to subjugate the world under Jewish rule. It was published in Russia in 1903 and translated into multiple languages. In 1921, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was exposed as a false document. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that Palestinians present The Protocols as a true manifestation of Jews' and Israelis' aspirations for the future.
PA TV also recently served as a platform for demonizing statements by a Gazan university professor. In an interview, Dr. Ibrahim Abrash, political science professor at the Al-Azhar University, explained that Judaism is based on extremism and that it permits stealing from and killing Gentiles. Dr. Ibrahim Abrash, political science professor, Al-Azhar University in Gaza: "The structure of the Zionist ideology, and even the structure of the Jewish religion, are based on extremism. The term 'Gentiles' exists in the Jewish religion, 'us vs. the Gentiles,' and it is permitted to steal from and kill Gentiles. The Zionist ideology came into being, based on denial the existence of the other, the denial and lack of recognition of us, the Palestinians." [Official PA TV, March 29, 2015] Click to view"

- The Palestinians No One Talks About, Khaled Abu Toameh (Gatestone Institute) - "A Palestinian who is shot dead after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Hebron receives more coverage in the international media than a Palestinian woman who dies of starvation in Syria".
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/5654/palestinians-oppression
"The international community seems to have forgotten that Palestinians live not only in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but also in a number of Arab countries, especially Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. Western journalists covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict regularly focus on the "plight" of Palestinians who are affected by Israeli security policies, while ignoring what is happening to Palestinians in neighboring Arab countries. These journalists, for example, often turn a blind eye to the daily killings of Palestinians in Syria and the fact that Palestinians living in Lebanon and other Arab countries are subjected to Apartheid and discriminatory laws.
A Palestinian who is shot dead after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Hebron receives more coverage in the international media than a Palestinian woman who dies of starvation in Syria. The story and photos of Mahmoud Abu Jheisha, who was fatally shot after stabbing a soldier in Hebron, attracted the attention of many Western media outlets, whose journalists and photographers arrived in the city to cover the story.
But on the same day that Abu Jheisha was brought to burial, a Palestinian woman living in Syria died due to lack of food and medicine. The woman was identified as Amneh Hussein Omari of the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus, which has been under siege by the Syrian army for the past 670 days. Her death raises the number of Palestinian refugees who have died as a result of lack of medicine and food in the camp to 176. The case of Omari was not covered by any of the Western journalists who are based in the region. As far as they are concerned, her story is not important because she died in an Arab country.
Had Omari died in a village or refugee camp in the West Bank or Gaza Strip, her story would have made it to the front pages of most of the major newspapers in the West. That is because they would then be able to link her death to Israeli measures in the West Bank or the blockade on the Gaza Strip. The same journalists who report about the harsh economic conditions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip do not seem to care about the Palestinians who are being starved and tortured to death in Arab countries.
Nor are the journalists reporting to their readers and viewers the fact that more than 2800 Palestinians have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the civil war there four years ago. A report published this week by a Palestinian advocacy group also revealed that more than 27,000 Palestinians have fled Syria to different European countries in the past four years. The report also noted that Yarmouk camp has been without electricity for more than 730 days and without water for 229 days.
Earlier this month, another report said that eight Palestinians died of torture while in Syrian prison. Three of the victims were women, including 22-year-old Nadin Abu Salah, who was pregnant when she died. The report said that 83 Palestinians died of torture in Syrian prison during March this year. These Palestinians are unfortunate because they do not live in the West Bank or Gaza Strip. The international community pays attention to Palestinians only when they are "victims" of Israel. [...]"

- Why Is Pakistan More Legitimate than Israel?, Dennis Prager (Townhall) - "why is Israel's legitimacy challenged, while the legitimacy of Pakistan, a state that had never before existed and whose creation resulted in the largest mass migration in recorded history, is never challenged?"
http://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2015/04/28/why-is-pakistan-more-legitimate-than-israel-n1991244/page/full
"Whenever I have received a call from a listener to my radio show challenging Israel's legitimacy, I have asked these people if they ever called a radio show to challenge any other country's legitimacy. In particular, I ask, have they ever questioned the legitimacy of Pakistan? The answer, of course, is always "no." In fact, no caller ever understood why I even mentioned Pakistan.
There are two reasons for this. First, of all the 200-plus countries in the world, only Israel's legitimacy is challenged. So mentioning any other country seems strange to a caller. Second, almost no one outside of India and Pakistan knows anything about the founding of Pakistan.
Only months before the U.N. adopted a proposal to partition Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state in 1947, India was partitioned into a Muslim and a Hindu state. The Hindu state was, of course, India. And the Muslim state became known as Pakistan. It comprises 310,000 square miles, about 40,000 square miles larger than Texas.
In both cases, the declaration of an independent state resulted in violence. As soon as the newly established state of Israel was declared in May 1948, it was invaded by six Arab armies. And the partition of India led to a terrible violence between Muslims and Hindus.
According to the final report of the United Nations Conciliation Commission from Dec. 28, 1949, the 1948 war of Israel's independence created 726,000 Arabs refugees. Many sources put the figure at about 200,000 less. A roughly equal number of Jewish refugees -- approximately 700,000 -- were created when they were forcibly expelled from the Arab countries where they had lived for countless generations. In addition, approximately 10,000 Arabs were killed in the fighting that ensued after the Arab invasion of Israel.
Now let's turn to the creation of Pakistan. According to the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees, the creation of Pakistan resulted in 14 million refugees -- Hindus fleeing Pakistan and Muslims fleeing India. Assuming a 50-50 split, the creation of Pakistan produced about seven million Hindu refugees -- at least 10 times the number of Arab refugees that resulted from the war surrounding Israel's creation. And the Mideast war, it should be recalled, was started by the Arab nations surrounding Israel. Were it not for the Arab rejection of Israel's creation (and existence within any borders) and the subsequent Arab invasion, there would have been no Arab refugees.
And regarding deaths, the highest estimate of Arab deaths during the 1948 war following the partition of Palestine is 10,000. The number of deaths that resulted from the creation of Pakistan is around one million. In addition, according to the Indian government, at least 86,000 women were raped. Most historians believe the number to be far higher. The number of women raped when Israel was established is close to zero. From all evidence I could find, the highest estimate was 12.
Given the spectacularly larger number of refugees and deaths caused by the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan, why does no one ever question the legitimacy of Pakistan's existence?
This question is particularly valid given another fact: Never before in history was there a Pakistan. It was a completely new nation. Moreover, its creation was made possible solely because of Muslim invasion. It was Muslims who invaded India, and killed about 60 million Hindus during the thousand-year Muslim rule of India. The area now known as Pakistan was Hindu until the Muslims invaded it in A.D. 711. On the other and, modern Israel is the third Jewish state in the geographic area known as Palestine. The first was destroyed in 586 B.C., the second in A.D. 70. And there was never a non-Jewish sovereign state in Palestine.
So, given all these facts, why is Israel's legitimacy challenged, while the legitimacy of Pakistan, a state that had never before existed and whose creation resulted in the largest mass migration in recorded history, is never challenged? The answer is so obvious that only those who graduated from college, and especially from graduate school, need to be told: Israel is the one Jewish state in the world. So, while there are 49 Muslim-majority countries and 22 Arab states, much of the world questions or outright only rejects the right of the one Jewish state, the size of New Jersey, to exist.
If you are a member of the Presbyterian Church, send these facts to the leaders of the Presbyterian Church USA who voted to boycott Israel. If you are a student in Middle Eastern Studies -- or for that matter, almost any other humanities department -- and your professor is anti-Israel, ask your professor why Pakistan is legitimate and Israel isn't. They won't have a good answer. Their opposition to Israel isn't based on moral considerations."
