Bahraini Activists Warn Against Normalization of Ties with «Israel»

Local Editor

More than 400 Bahraini judicial activists warned against any normalization of relations with Israel, expressing their support for the Palestinian cause.

Bahraini and

The activists blasted Bahraini officials for hosting an “Israeli” celebration last week, Bahrain’s LuaLua TV reported on Wednesday.

They also called on the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry to punish its members, who took part in the Hanukkah ceremony, and to make them apologize for their participation in the event.

The judicial activists further voiced solidarity with the Palestinian cause and underlined the need for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, with East al-Quds [Jerusalem] as its capital.

The ceremony, which was held on Saturday, was also reportedly attended by members of the country’s small Jewish population, foreign businessmen and local Bahrainis.

Bahrainis and

The Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, denounced the event in the wake of mounting criticism about the Tel Aviv regime’s illegal activities in the occupied territories.

In a statement, Hamas condemned the ceremony as a “humiliating and disgraceful display,” where Bahraini dignitaries and traders “hosted a Jewish, Zionist, racist, extremist delegation and danced with them.”

Last year, Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa hosted the Hanukkah celebration in the capital Manama, the first such event in the tiny Gulf country since 1948.

Even though there are about 50 Jews that live in Bahrain, the king hadmade efforts to embrace them, having Jew representatives in his Shura Council and naming Houda Ezra Ebrahim Nonoo, a Jewish woman as Bahrain’s ambassador to the United States in 2008.

In the meantime, the Al Khalifa regime continues its crackdown on its dissents, namely its Shia majority population who are peacefully protesting and calling for political reforms in the country.

Bahrain and “Israel” have no formal diplomatic ties.

Abu Dhabi Launches «Israeli» Surveillance System

Local Editor
In a new step of Arab-“Israeli” normalization, authorities in Abu Dhabi announced on Wednesday the launch of an emirate-wide surveillance system installed by an “Israeli”-owned security company.

The Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre [ADMCC] said the new Falcon Eye surveillance system “links thousands of cameras spread across the city, as well as thousands of other cameras installed at facilities and buildings in the emirate”.

An official statement reported by Arabian Business said Falcon Eye will “help control roads by monitoring traffic violations while also monitoring significant behaviors in the city [Abu Dhabi] such as public hygiene and human assemblies in non-dedicated areas”.

Major General Mohammed Khalfan al-Romaithi, who heads the Abu Dhabi police force and chairs the ADMCC, said Falcon Eye is “part of the vision of the emirate of Abu Dhabi to pursue its efforts to build a confident and safe society, and a sustainable and globally open and competitive economy”.

However, Abu Dhabi authorities did not reveal that the company behind the development of Falcon Eye is owned by businessman and former “Israeli” intelligence agent Mati Kochavi.

According to The Middle East Eye [MEE] the system has been developed by the Swiss-headquartered security company AGT International, which has Mati Kochavi, a former “Israeli” intelligence agent with strong links to the Tel Aviv regime’s spy service, as its CEO and founder.

Kochavi is known to be a regular visitor to the UAE, where “Israeli” are officially – but rarely in practice – banned from entry.

While “Israeli” apartheid regime officials have at times been keen to talk up their relationship with Abu Dhabi, the two regimes’ security relationship has had a lower profile.

Last November, the Associated Press reported that the “Israeli” regime was set to open a “permanent mission” in the UAE, which it said was to operate as part of the International Renewable Energy Agency [IRENA] in the Emirati capital.

The MEE reported last month that Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, an Emirati deputy prime minister, was the key supplier of livestock to the “Israeli” apartheid entity, shipping thousands of heads of such animals to the entity through a nexus of companies.

Sharon Letter to Saudi King Revealed as Crown Prince Slams «Israel» at UN

 
In the most recent revelations of Saudi-“Israel” normalization and alliance, a letter written by Ariel Sharon ten years ago has been revealed as the Saudi Crown Prince in an attempt to wash his hands of barbarity, slammed the entity’s brutal measures in the Occupied Palestine.

Ariel Sharon

Though the stain of shame haunts the Saudi regime, its Crown Prince Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef addressed the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.

In a bid to wash away that taint, the crown prince first excoriated the “Israeli” entity before discussing the situation in Syria, Yemen or Iran.

Even more, he disregarded the Syrian crisis and the dire situation in Yemen, which had cost the lives of thousands of innocent civilians by the US-backed Saudi-led aggression on Yemen.

The Saudi Prince bin Nayef pointed out that progress in the Palestinian-“Israeli” conflict “seems impossible in the light of the continuation of the ‘Israeli’ settlement policy, the tampering with the holy city of al-Quds [Jerusalem], ruining the Arab, Islamic and Christian identity of the city, and the heartless policy of repression practiced against the Palestinians people.”

Little did he know that by slamming the “Israeli” entity, he would be dooming Riyadh and its ties to the entity!

Early in the month, at a ceremony in a museum in the Tel Aviv district of “Or Yehuda”, the “Israeli” entity’s former consul in Boston and ambassador to Egypt, Yitzhak Levan, mentioned Ariel Sharon’s letter to then Saudi King Abdullah.

A framed copy of the letter was presented to the Babylonian Jewry Heritage Museum.

Levan hailed the letter as an “important historical document,” and proof that the “Israeli” entity worked behind the scenes to move the so-called “peace process” forward. He also said the letter confirms that there were ties with the Saudis.

The spirit of those ties, and of reports of a growing but still discreet relationship between Tel Aviv and Riyadh was in no way evident, but the letter shed light on the relation of the two regimes that goes back a long way.

“In light of Saudi Arabia’s central status in this region, and your Majesty’s political wisdom and foresight, we believe that your country can make an immense contribution to the success of this [‘peace’] process,” Sharon wrote to the Saudi king in reference to the diplomatic process with the Palestinians.

Sahron further wrote to the Saudi King,

” It is our hope that Saudi Arabia, under your Majesty’s strong leadership, will exert its power and influence to encourage the moderate forces in this region and advance the prospects of peace, stability and prosperity.”

“I offer my hand in friendship and hope to have the opportunity to cooperate and work with you personally to advance our mutual goal of peace. I look forward to receiving your response,” Sharon concluded the letter of friendship.

Ariel Sharon wrote these words on November 27, 2005, and had a Jew born in Iraq who lived abroad named Moshe Peretz to deliver the letter to the Saudi King Abdullah, thanks to a good relationship he developed with the king’s brother-in-law.

Peretz turned to the “Israeli” Prime Minister’s Office and offered his services in relaying a message to the king. On December 3, 2005, the king’s brother-in law-called Peretz and said the letter was personally delivered.

Shame for Fame: by Nahida Exiled Palestinian

by Nahida Exiled Palestinian

I avoided writing about this topic, trying to give Palestine Chronicle and its chief editor Ramzy Baroud the benefit of the doubt, but I don’t think keeping silent is an option any more

In March 2011 I met Ramzy Baroud during his UK tour, I invited him to stay with us in my family home, where he was warmly welcomed. As we both were devoted to working for liberation of our homeland and advocating for justice for our people, I thought we had forged a mutually respectful friendship.

I continued to communicate with Baroud via email and Facebook, sharing my poems, thoughts, comments and articles with him, with hardly any response, if ever.  The communication was a one way street, but I kept giving him the benefit of the doubt and finding excuses, for he is such a busy journalist.

In December 2013, I posted a series of  comments on Palestine Chronicle of which PC editor published only three while censoring the most crucial.

Being one of my Facebook friends, I wrote to Mr Baroud privately inquiring about the reason of censoring my comments, I never received a reply.

Today, April 12, 2016, I notice that he had deleted me from his list of friends (not sure when),  I contacted him again asking for an explanation, again no reply.

Also today, I noticed that the Palestine Chronicle team, which consists of “professional journalists and respected writers and authors“, has published one of my photoswhich I took during my visit to Palestine in 2012, without asking permission or giving credit.

Furthermore, in the same edition of Palestine Chronicle two poems are published: One is eerily the same topic and same title as a poem I published three years ago and had sent to Mr Baroud.

The second poem also bears almost the same title and has the same topic as one of my prose/poems, written in 2012, and is illustrated by my photograph that I used for the same publication, a photo that is significant because it depicts the garden that triggered me to write the prose/poem in the first place. Mr Baroud also received it via email at the time.

This is irrefutably not a coincidence, and is irrefutably an act of unwarranted hostility, an attempt by a fellow Palestinian to dispossess the intellectual rights of a fellow Palestinian author.

Ramzy Baroud, I am asking you for an explanation. What is going on? What has gone so wrong with you that you engage in such unfathomable act?

Why does Palestine Chronicle participate in censoring Palestinian voices and obfuscating their work, bordering on plagiarism?

Do we really need thought commissars in our movement of liberation?

Is it excommunication against untamed Palestinian voices whose narrative is not approved by anti-Zionist rabbis and lacking the kosher stamp?

 

This kind of subliminal attacks coming from a Palestinian, who brags of his father being a “freedom fighter” and who engages into yet another dispossession and attempted demoralization of a fellow Palestinian freedom fighter is beyond shameful

Is that the price of fame? Does Mr Baroud really think that it will not cost him discredit and shame?

The Debate – Saudi-Israeli Courtship

Published on Jul 30, 2016

Date: 30.7.2016

“The Saudis want to open up to Israel.” Those were the words of an Israeli legislator who organized a Knesset meeting, in Israeli-occupied territories, with a retired Saudi general & his delegation of Saudi academics & businessmen. General Eshki’s visit hasn’t been applauded, even by traditional supporters of the kingdom, yet it marks one more step towards the limelight of what stage Israeli-Saudi relations are at. In this edition of the debate, we seek to understand the relationship between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia & the Israeli regime.

PFLP: Continued normalization meetings between the Saudi regime and Zionist entity threaten the region

 Jul262016

eshkinormalizationThe Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine strongly condemned the continued normalization meetings between the Saudi regime and the Zionist entity, the latest of which was a Saudi delegation to the Zionist state in the presence of retired General Anwar Eshki and Saudi businessmen.

The Front noted that these meetings would not take place without a green light from the official Saudi authorities, noting the danger and harm to the national cause and the interests of the Arab people at the hands of Saudi officialdom, which is working to redirect and alter the character and compass of the struggle in the region.

The Front added that the recurring nature of these meetings indicates a high level of coordination between the Saudi regime, the Zionist entity, and the United States administration in the destruction of the region, keeping it burning and torn apart by sectarian and confessional conflicts, terror, and the takfiri groups funded and fueled by Saudi Arabia and the West.

The Front also emphasized that the continuation of these meetings provides cover and assistance to the occupation in its oppression of the Palestinian people and gives a veneer of legitimacy to its massive and ongoing crimes. They also continue to the normalization with the Zionist entity as a “fact on the ground” in the region, working to promote the role of the occupation state in the region and increase its influence.

The Front denounced the participation of a Palestinian official in these normalization meetings, emphasizing that there are some in the monopolistic Palestinian leadership who do not want to leave the framework of negotiations, normalization and meetings with the Zionist entity. This must be confronted with a popular response and clear Palestinian stand to confront this corrosion that eats away at our national liberation struggle.
