Abduct, imprison, repeat: Israel systematically imprisons Palestinians on false or no charges

Dec 12, 2017, RT.com

People around the world are rightfully outraged by Donald Trump’s recent effective handing over of Jerusalem to Israel.

Behind the scenes, out of sight, an outrageous and illegal practice continues, the alleged“only democracy in the Middle East” on a near-daily basis abducts Palestinian men, women, and children under false pretexts (or no charges at all), using sham legal proceedings to enforce prolonged, illegal, detentions.

According to October 2017 statistics by the Palestinian prisoner support group Addameer, Israel holds 6,198 Palestinians in prison (including 280 children and 58 women).

“Since 2008, Eva has spent more than 3 years in Gaza documenting Palestinian life under Israeli rule. She has also visited Lebanon and, since 2014, has just come back from her 5th trip to Syria, the latter for 9 weeks, to bring back firsthand accounts of what daily life is like for the Syrian people who have been subjected to a Western imperial war for the past over 5 years.”

Sara Flounders Speech on Syria at Left Forum 2016

In this forum, particularly interesting is the speech given by Sara Flounders, of the International Action Center, on her visits to Syria, on the reasons behind the global war on Syria and the documentation of US planning the destabilization of Syria since at least 2005. Flounders also gives historical context to the lead-up to the 2011-begun war on Syria, as well as the many reasons why the NATO-GCC-Zionist alliance want to destabilize and break apart Syria.

Palestine Resists, Syria Resists (Radio Interview)

img_0500This is a recent interview I gave on the popular Sott Radio Network, on Behind the Headlines.

We discuss Palestine, what I’ve seen there, how the zionist strategy has been to make life as unbearable, unliveable, as possible throughout occupied Palestine.Having lived several years and two brutal massacres in Gaza, I talk about the manifold zionist war crimes perpetrated again and again on Palestinians, including use of White Phosphorous, killing medics, shooting civilians in the border region, and more.

We talk about the circumstances in Palestine today and the savagery of the occupation army which, for example, recently threatened to gas all residents of Aida camp, threatened to slaughter the Palesitnian in their captivity, if another STONE was thrown.  The level of zionist sadism has been ramped up and Palestinians are rightly Resisting.

“This week on Behind the Headlines we’ll be discussing the conflicts in the Middle East and assessing where it’s all likely to end up.

First up, we’re interviewing Canadian freelance journalist and human rights activist Eva Bartlett. Bartlett has lived in the Gaza Strip since late 2008, and was aboard the Dignity, one of five Free Gaza missions to successfully sail to the Strip that year. Bartlett reported from Gaza during the 2008/2009 and 2012 Israeli attacks. She has visited Syria three times since April 2014, including independently on a journalist visa. Her Syria writings are collated on this page.

Later in the show, we’ll also be speaking with Iranian-American Navid Nasr, writer, political analyst and host of the ‘Bullet Points’ radio show on the ‘Voices of the 99%’ radio network. Nasr has covered US and global conflicts – including those in Syria, Ukraine, Egypt, Yemen and Libya – for Lebanese Al-Etejah TV and PressTV.

Join us this Sunday, 1st November 2015, from 2-4pm EST / 8-10pm CET, for the perspective you won’t hear on the mainstream media.”

Other interviews I’ve done on Palestine

Feedback on talks I’ve given on Palestine

Eva Bartlett’s presentation on Gaza should be heard by every American, including every single member of Congress. I am quite sure that they would end the American taxpayers’ financial support of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine if they only knew the horrors our money was paying for. Bartlett spoke beautifully, in a clear, articulate voice, presenting all the details of Israeli atrocities in a most professional manner. Her speech contained no rhetoric or pretense, with no hint of ego; she just described the facts that she has witnessed living in Gaza for several years. Her modest and captivating demeanor made her presentation all the more powerful. I strongly recommend everyone to make every effort to attend a presentation by Eva Bartlett, or organize one yourself if there are none nearby. It is a real privilege to hear her speak.
