While the west and the Israeli lobby lectures Iran about human rights, it censors Press TV from broadcasting in the west.
JERUSALEM — A Grad rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck in southern Israel early Tuesday, threatening to further escalate tensions that have been mounting since Saturday, when a 30-year-old Palestinian prisoner died in an Israeli jail.
The rocket, which came down on a road outside the city of Ashkelon and caused no injuries, was the first from Gaza to hit Israel in the three months since a cease-fire agreement ended eight days of cross-border violence. Israel has violated the cease-fire several times by firing on fishermen and farmers approaching newly relaxed security perimeters, but the agreement has otherwise held.
February 26, 2013 – ISRAEL – A rocket fired from Gaza exploded in Israel on Tuesday, the first such attack since a November truce and an apparent show of solidarity with West Bank protests after the death of a Palestinian in an Israeli jail. Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a militant group in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s West Bank-based Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the rocket strike, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency said. No casualties were reported. Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, said it was investigating. There was no military response from Israel, hours after the rocket slammed into a road near its southern city of Ashkelon. The rocket was the first to hit Israel since a November 21 truce brokered by Egypt that ended eight days of cross-border air strikes and missile attacks in which 175 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed. Tuesday’s strike came after a surge of unrest in the occupied West Bank, that has raised fears in Israel of a new Palestinian Intifada (uprising). On Monday, thousands of Palestinians in the West Bank turned out for the funeral of Arafat Jaradat, 30, who died in disputed circumstances in an Israeli prison on Saturday. Israeli police shot and wounded five Palestinian youths during confrontations in Bethlehem and outside a West Bank prison later the same day, leaving a 15-year-old boy in critical condition, Israeli and Palestinian medical sources said. An Israeli military spokeswoman, commenting on the incident, said troops had opened fire at Palestinians who threw homemade hand grenades at a Jewish holy site called Rachel’s Tomb, in the Bethlehem area. Before the rocket attack from Gaza, media reports said Israeli officials had hoped the Palestinian protests were winding down a week after they were launched in sympathy with four prisoners on intermittent hunger strikes. The U.S. State Department said American diplomats have contacted Israeli and Palestinian leaders to appeal for calm. The United Nations coordinator for the Middle East peace process, Robert Serry, called for an investigation of Jaradat’s death. Jaradat had been arrested a week ago for throwing stones at Israeli cars in the West Bank. Palestinian officials said he had died after being tortured in prison. But Israel said an autopsy carried out in the presence of a Palestinian coroner was inconclusive. Palestinian frustration has also been fuelled by Israel’s expansion of Jewish settlements in territory captured in a 1967 war and deadlocked diplomacy for a peace agreement since 2010.
The comment comes as the Franco-Israeli head of Eutelsat, Michel de Rosen, has begun a new wave of attacks against Iranian TV channels.
In a letter to Asian and European satellite companies, de Rosen has threatened the companies to drop Iranian entertainment and news channels.
In the letter obtained by Press TV, the Franco-Israeli Eutelsat chief has warned satellite companies to remove Iranian channels or prepare to face the consequences of defying his order. He stated the sanctions imposed by the European Union (EU) and the United States against the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) chief, Ezzatollah Zarqami, as the reason for the push to stop broadcasting Iranian channels. – See more at: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/26/290967/us-attacking-iran-media-to-woo-israel/#sthash.RYU2pyhP.dpuf
The Kerem Shalom crossing was closed Tuesday after a Palestinian rocket was fired at Ashkelon Monday night, the first in the three-month ceasefire which ended the Israeli operation in Gaza. Most of the goods crossing into the Gaza Strip from Israel goes through that crossing. The volume was substantially increased and diversified after the ceasefire. There were no casualties from the rocket whic exploded south of the town of Ashkelon – only damage to a road. Some witnesses reported two explosions.
How could those those eminent Jewish scientist before him have been so wrong? Easy says Dr. Elhaik, “First these researchers decided what conclusions they wanted to find, and then they set off to find evidence to support it.” I was not bashing Jewish scientists. What Elhaik has described is a slam dunk fraud.
But why? Why would Jews who take such pride in the academic achievement risk exposing themselves to a group deception which was bound to be discovered later? Dr. Elhaik does not delve into the quicksand of the politics, but I will gladly do so.
They perpetrated the fraud solely to support the bogus biblical claim to Palestine which was anchored in their being a separate people. This distinguished them from all others because they claimed a land title in their blood. They bet the farm on this DNA proof of purchase, a God given bar coded passport to the Palestine. Dr. Ehaik just erased the bar code. It was just stamped on anyway, because it was never in the blood.
Several Instagram users who appear to have served in the IDF have posted galleries of photos, showing Israeli soldiers posing with weaponry, detaining Palestinians and raiding homes at night, which are accompanied by rousing tags or commentary.
Instagram user ‘ybaruch’ claims to be 21 years old, describing himself as a “retired operations sergeant at the Israeli army, now just a student.”
Among the 144 images he uploaded on his page, there’s a photo showing an Israeli soldier playing a “card game” using Palestinian IDs at one of the military checkpoints.

There’s an Israeli troop posing in a t-shirt, which says “My first bullet, his last breath” in Hebrew on another photo, while the image of a turned over car is followed by a caption: “Oops … one less Arab. Let’s see if he’ll try to escape from us again.”

Some more provocative pictures can be seen on the page of another Israeli soldier, ‘Orif Binder’, who posted an image of an obscene gesture towards Palestinian flag with the words “Hamas Patrol” written on it.

Another user ‘dk_1988_,’ who appears to have been a border guard, has uploaded a photo of detained Palestinians, which is followed by a caption: “Don’t fuc* with the Israeli army!”

Such images show the abuse of power and reveal the level of contempt the IDF soldiers have towards Palestinians, the Electronic Intifada blogger Ali Abunimah said, commenting on them in his post.
The IDF has already launched an investigation over an Instagram picture of a Palestinian boy made through his weapons sight, which an Israeli soldier Mor Ostrovski uploaded.
This is hardly the first scandal to have gripped the IDF. In 2010 a former Israeli soldier Eden Abergil, who posted photos on Facebook, in which she was shown posing next to handcuffed and blindfolded Palestinian detainees, sparked outcry. The woman has since dismissed any criticism of her actions, and her smiling photos went viral.
