ISRAEL: ‘ Dozens of Masked Arab Rioters Lock Themselves Inside Al Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount ‘

#AceNewsServices – ISRAEL (Jerusalem) – October 08 – Dozens of masked Arab rioters locked themselves inside the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount Wednesday morning after they injured at least four policemen with fire-bombs, cement blocks and large rocks during visits by Jews and foreign tourists to the holy site.

One of the fire-bombs was hurled from within the mosque. At least one of the policemen was directly hit by a Molotov cocktail, which struck his protective gear. The bottle exploded but did not ignite.

Policemen were treated at the scene for light injuries, and several Arabs reportedly were hurt in the violence that continued at least until noon.

Unlike previous riots, the police did not bar Jews and tourists from continuing to visit the Temple Mount compound.

Police said they will “continue to take action to show zero tolerance in the face of any attempt to disturb the peace and will act to arrest rioters and bring them to trial.”

The tough stand comes after years of escalating violence by Arabs to keep Jews off of the Temple Mount site.

Arabs blocked the entrance to the Al Aqsa mosque with marble slabs, ropes and anything else that does not move, and then even poured inflammable liquid on the barricade, which police succeeded in removing.

‘ Mahmoud Abbas Accuses Israel of War Crimes’

AceWorldNews – NEW YORK – September 26 – Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel on Friday of conducting a “war of genocide” and a “series of absolute war crimes” during the 50-day summer conflict in Gaza, but stopped short of saying he will pursue war crime charges against the Jewish state at the International Criminal Court AP reported. 

In his speech at the U.N. General Assembly, Abbas also said he will seek a U.N. resolution to set a deadline for Israel to pull out of Palestinian lands captured in the 1967 war but did not include a three-year deadline as his aides had said he would.

' Israel Passes Law to Curb Presidential Powers to Grant Pardon's to Palestinians Convicted of Murder '

#AceNewsServices – ISRAEL (Jerusalem) – June 08 – Israel passed a law on Sunday which will curb presidential powers to grant pardons to Palestinians convicted of murder, Anadolu News Agency cites Economy Minister Naftali Bennett as saying.

Bennett, who leads the right-wing Jewish Home political party, said if the law had existed earlier, “many murderers would not have dared to kill Jews.”

He further said the bill was a response to the recently formed Palestinian unity government, which follows a reconciliation deal signed between Fatah and Hamas in April.

(World Bulletin ) “If this law had existed earlier, many murderers would not have dared to kill Jews,” Bennett, the leader of the right-wing The Jewish Home political party, wrote on his Facebook page.
“This law will soon be presented to the Knesset in order to be approved,” he added.

Bennett said the bill comes as a response to the new Palestinian unity government.

The Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government reached an agreement last July on the release of 104 prisoners who have been languishing in Israeli jails before the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accord.

The Oslo Accords, officially called the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements or Declaration of Principles (DOP) was a milestone in the ongoing Palestinian-Israeli conflict, one of the major continuing issues within the wider Arab-Israeli conflict. It was the first direct, face-to-face agreement between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

The Oslo Accords were a framework for the future relations between the two parties. The Accords provided for the creation of a Palestinian National Authority (PNA). The Palestinian Authority would have responsibility for the administration of the territory under its control. The Accords also called for the withdrawal of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) from parts of the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

It was anticipated that this arrangement would last for a five-year interim period during which a permanent agreement would be negotiated (beginning no later than May 1996). Permanent issues such as positions on Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, Israeli settlements, security and borders were deliberately left to be decided at a later stage. Interim Palestinian self-government was to be granted by Israel in phases.

Israel released three batches but refused to release the 4th group in March, leading to the collapse of U.S.-brokered peace talks.

In response, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas formally applied for Palestinian membership in 15 U.N. conventions.

` Three People Killed in Shooting Near Jewish Museum in Brussels ‘

#AceBreakingNews – BRUSSELS – May 24 – Three people were killed in a shooting near the Jewish Museum in Brussels, which the Belgian authorities believe may be “an anti-Semitic terrorist act.”

` Israeli Soldiers Hurled ` Stun-Grenades ‘ at `Palestinian Worshippers ‘ after Entering the Holy Haram al-Sharif to Pray ‘

#AceNewsServices – JERUSALEM – April 13 – (ALJ) – Israeli soldiers and police have hurled stun grenades at Palestinian worshippers after entering the holy Haram al-Sharif compound in Jerusalem.

Violence erupted on Sunday morning after Israeli police opened one of the walled compound’s gates to non-Muslim visitors after dawn prayers.

The Palestinians had remained in the courtyard of the al-Aqsa mosque in anticipation of an incursion by groups of Jewish extremists.

The Haram al-Sharif, which includes the al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, is Islam’s third holiest site and is known to Jews as the Temple Mount.

Although non-Muslim visitors are permitted, Jews are not allowed to pray at the site, even under Israeli law.

` Jish has been targeted by a suspected ` Price-Tag ‘ Incident leaving Words written in Hebrew to Ethnically Cleanse Jews’

#AceWorldNews – ISRAEL – April 03 – (Arutz Sheva – INN) – Arab village in the Galilee has been targeted in a suspected “price-tag” incident, according to police.

Around 40 cars had their tires slashed in the predominantly Christian village of Jish, in northern Israel, which lies some 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of the Sea of Galilee, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Thursday morning.

“This morning in Jish, it was discovered that almost 40 vehicles had had their tyres slashed,” she told AFP, saying police had opened an investigation.

Written in Hebrew on a nearby wall were the words: “Only Gentiles (non-Jews) should be removed from our land,” she said, in an apparent reference to ongoing efforts to ethnically-cleanse Jews from parts of Judea and Samaria.

“Price tag” is a euphemism for politically-motivated vandalism and criminal damage usually attributed to Jewish extremists, carried out either in revenge for Arab terrorist attacks, or in protest of Israeli government policies such as the destruction of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria.

` UN Special Rapporteur on Occupied `Palestine ' accused Israeli authorities of Colonialism, Apartheid and Ethnic Cleansing '

#AceWorldNews – UNITED NATIONS – 22 March – UN Special Rapporteur on occupied Palestine accused Israeli authorities of conducting colonialist policies that constitute forms of apartheid and ethnic cleansing in the occupied territories in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Speaking at a news conference at the UN European headquarters in Geneva on Friday, the UN Special Rapporteur on occupied Palestine, Richard Falk, accused Israel of pushing Palestinians out of East Jerusalem and creating unbearable conditions for the minority to force them to immigrate.

Falk, an ethnic Jewish expert in international law and professor emeritus at Princeton University, told journalists that Israeli policies have “unacceptable characteristics of colonialism, apartheid and ethnic cleansing.”

In the present situation where talks between Israel and Palestinian authority remain in deadlock, the acceleration of Israeli settlement construction in the occupied territories is causing Palestinians to lose their faith that a state of their own could ever be created.

“Every increment of enlarging the settlements, or every incident of house demolition is a way of worsening the situation confronting the Palestinian people and reducing what prospects they might have as the outcome of supposed peace negotiations,” the UN Special Rapporteur said.

Speaking about Israel de facto annexing parts of the Palestinian territory, Falk was actually citing a report – http://blog.unwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/A-HRC-25-67_en-Falkfinalreport_Feb2014.pdf on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, prepared by his group and presented in January.

The report maintains that Israeli policies in the West Bank are effectively denying the Palestinian right to self-determination by means of “apartheid and segregation.”

` Israeli Army discovers a new ` Gaza Terrorist Tunnel ‘ reaching into the Jewish State from Palestinian Enclave’

#AceWorldNews – The Israeli army said it discovered a new Gaza “terrorist” tunnel reaching into the Jewish state from the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner did not give the exact location of the tunnel, which runs 450 meters into Israel and is “six to eight meters deep.”

However, the armed wing of Islamist movement Hamas said the tunnel is old and was damaged and exposed “by stormy weather two months ago” – not by Israel’s “security achievements.”
