Actually, the prime minister of Israel has asked for a peace/cease fire a ton of times.
Guess what, they(not the Israelis) broke it each time.

You mean like when Bibi consistently failed to live up to commitments made in the Oslo Accords? What's the word to describe when one makes promises that one fails to honor? Ah, yes, LYING.

By William Booth October 22, 2014

KFAR YASSUF, West Bank — The rains have come to wash away the dust of summer from the olives, and so the annual harvest has begun — and with it, another cycle of violence against man and tree.

Mohammad Hamoudah and his wife were picking olives in their grove last week when he saw five or six men darting among the trees, their faces hidden by scarves, carrying sticks and shepherd’s crooks.

“We ran for the car,” said Hamoudah, a Palestinian from this village south of Nablus. The assailants smashed a window with a club. They struck his wife on the leg. “They were savages,” he said.

Hamoudah said his attackers were Jewish settlers; four were later arrested, he said, and when Hamoudah went to the police station to identify them, one of the settlers accused the Israeli police officer of turning against his own people to help the Arabs. “The policeman slapped him to the floor,” Hamoudah said. “I have to say, I respected that.”

There is far worse violence in the Middle East today — in Syria, Iraq and Libya — and so the seasonal clashes in the olive groves of the West Bank can seem peripheral, almost trivial. But not to the Palestinians.

 

More than 80,000 Palestinian farmers derive a substantial portion of their annual income from olives. Harvesting the fruit, pressing the oil, selling and sharing the produce is a ritual of life. Now, so is losing trees.

Last year, the United Nations reported that Israeli settlers damaged or destroyed nearly 11,000 olive trees and saplings owned by Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. The trees were burned, toppled by bulldozers, felled with chain saws.

For Jews, Christians and Muslims, the olive tree is a symbol of peace and a promise for the future. Many of the trees in the West Bank, their trunks twisted and pocked with age, are hundreds of years old.

When Pope Francis brought then-Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the Vatican earlier this year for a “prayer summit,” the three took time to plant an olive tree in the papal gardens.

With the start of the olive harvest this year, Palestinian officials and international monitors have already reported the first incidents: Families chased from their olive grove by settlers slinging rocks. Bags of harvested olives stolen. Hundreds of trees destroyed.

The forecast for this year’s olive harvest in the West Bank is low, due to heavy snows last winter followed by scant rain. Whether the violence will go up or down, nobody knows.

“Every year we have incidents, but last year was one of the worst,” said Nasser Abu Farha, director of Canaan Fair Trade. The company’s olive growers have been supported by grants from European governments and the U.S. Agency for International Development, and its products line the shelves of Whole Foods and other speciality outlets in the United States.

 

“This is not only the fault of the settlers. The settlers who live in the security zone protected by the Israeli soldiers are the most vicious,” he said, referring to certain areas of the West Bank. “They have a sense of entitlement, that the land is theirs and the olive trees are theirs.”

Micky Rosenfeld, spokesman for the Israeli police, said incidents this year have involved damage to both Palestinian and Jewish olive trees.

“A number of investigations have been opened, and police patrols have been increased to prevent and respond,” he said.

Following the attack on the olive groves in Yassuf, vandals spray-painted the walls and tossed a fire bomb onto the floor of a mosque in nearby Aqraba. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said, “Burning holy places is terrorism and should be treated as terrorism.”

There are now some 350,000 Jewish settlers living in 121 communities in the West Bank, settlements that most of the world’s governments consider illegal under international law because they were built on land occupied by the Israeli military. Many Israeli leaders do not consider the land “occupied,” but “disputed.”

Many Jewish settlers say they want to live on the lands they believe were granted to them as God’s chosen people. Others want to claim the land for Israel. Many just want to own an affordable home. Among their ranks are some hard-core extremists who cut down olive trees, kill sheep and vandalize water wells. The Palestinians believe their goal is to provoke or harass them.

Palestinians and Israeli settlers have been battling for years, but Hamoudah said the fight is one-sided.

“If the settlers did not have the protection of the army,” he said, “they would not dare touch our trees.”

Hamoudah said the only respite from attacks by settlers on village olive groves came during the extreme violence and suicide bombings of the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising, against the Israelis, from 2000 to 2005.

One of his neighbors, Ali Yassin, stopped by to drink a cup of coffee and watch the Hamoudah family shake olives from the tree branches onto a tarp spread around the trunk.

“I come from a big family. We lost a hundred trees earlier this month. Myself, I lost six very old trees,” Yassin said. “What can we do? If we throw stones at them, we will be arrested by our own Palestinian authorities the next day.” Palestinian forces coordinate with Israeli counterparts in some areas of the West Bank where they share responsibility for security.

In 2013, the United Nations recorded 386 assaults against Palestinians and their property by Jewish settlers in the West Bank. There were an additional 50 incidents of vandalism and attacks against Israelis by Palestinians.

Noa Cohen, a researcher with the Israeli human rights group Yesh Din, said her organization tracked a sample of 246 incidents between 2005 and September 2014 after which complaints about attacks in Palestinian olive groves were filed with Israeli police. Only four resulted in indictments.

“The police are not going to the crime scene to collect evidence. They do not ask for eyewitnesses to give their version of the incident,” Cohen said. “They do not look for suspects, and if they do look for suspects, they do not check their alibi. Usually the case is closed due to ‘unknown offenders.’ ”

When Israeli Settlers Direct Violence at Palestinian Schoolchildren (2013)

 

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/11/12/when-israeli-settlers-direct-violence-at-palestinian-schoolchildren.html

 

Israeli and Palestinian adults fighting in a conflict that has been going on for decades and spewing hate speech is bad enough. But whenever children become the targets, society is really in a sorry state of affairs.

Reaching a new low, that’s sadly not that new, Israeli settlers vandalized a Palestinian kindergarten in Hebron last week with vile hate speech, as Mairav Zonstein reported in +972.

The settlers spray-painted “Death to Arabs” in Hebrew on the schoolyard wall, just another recent example of an attack directed at Palestinian children and schools in the West Bank.

Some may think “price tag” attacks are relatively minor acts of vandalism—racially or religiously motivated hooliganism at best. But the repeating patterns of violence toward kids show a trend with a long-term goal: making daily life for Palestinians in the West Bank unbearable, and the creation of a viable Palestinian state improbable.

Education is key to creating strong leaders for any future Palestinian state. When settlers leave hateful slogans or worse for Palestinian students to see, they know they are not just scaring schoolchildren today. They are creating facts on the ground, new realities, which tell Palestinians they should not feel safe driving to work, harvesting crops or attending school.

An attack by settlers on a Palestinian elementary school last month showed the degree of hatred some are willing to stoop to in these vengeance-based attacks.

In the village of Jalud, settlers “threw rocks at the classrooms as well as at five parked cars belonging to teachers,” Amira Hass reported in Haaretz.

Four settler outposts, which even Israel considers illegal, surround Jalud. Four Israelis were reportedly arrested in connection with the attack, but students at the school said at least 20 settlers participated.

This is part of the problem. Not all settler violence against Palestinians can be attributed to the price tag motivation—a desire for revenge over Palestinian attacks on Israelis or Israeli government actions against settlements. According to a report by the Palestine Center, “so-called ‘price tag’ attacks only make up a very small part of the explanation behind why settler violence occurs.”

 

Settler violence can also be explained by demographics and Israeli security arrangements in the West Bank, which create “pockets where there is little or no deterrent for settler attacks.” In other words, Israeli forces are failing to stop violence against Palestinians, and settlers in some areas are given free reign to attack Palestinians with impunity. In some cases, IDF soldiers appear to be collaborating with violent settlers.

The settler attack at the elementary school occurred despite the fact that Israeli soldiers were patrolling the area due to the recent rise in West Bank violence. Israeli police and army forces arrived at the scene 45 minutes after the school was broken into, children were traumatized and some 400 olive trees were damaged by arson.

Attacks on school children send the message that Palestinians living in the West Bank, especially near settlements, will continue to pay a heavy price if they don’t leave. The attackers are intimidating Palestinian kids into submission, saying with every graffiti tag left for them to see, “Do not resist the occupation. We will win. You will lose.”

 

In March, seven children were injured when settlers allegedly threw rocks at two Palestinian school buses returning from a class trip. Extremist settlers frequently assault Palestinian children walking to school, and some students have to rely on Israeli military escorts in order to commute safely.

Those who perpetrate these attacks on children—and the kids are being attacked, not always physically, but always psychologically and socially—are multiplying existing tensions and the potential for open violence. For most Palestinian children who already only know Israelis as soldiers and settlers, when they find out what the Hebrew graffiti written on their school wall says, the hate will only grow.

Palestinian second graders traumatized by extremist settlers (some wielding the same rocks that Palestinian youth are regularly criticized for throwing at Israeli soldiers) will likely never forget the day their school was attacked or vandalized.

Israel apologists love to bring up the racist language and warped histories in Palestinian textbooks, especially those recently put into use in Gaza by Hamas. This hate speech is wrong, inaccurate and a disservice to learning. But sadly, outside West Bank schools, racist language is literally written on the wall.

Even though The cult of Mildew is being very rude he's not completely wrong. That's the problem with the war. There IS no good side. There is no bad side. Both sides are doing bad things and both sides have innocent people getting hurt. It IS VERY rude of him to try to demonize the Israelis on this thread but a lot of the info he is putting out about things that happened to the Palestinians is true information even if he is using it in a very terrible way.

What It's Like To Live In

What It's Like To Live In East Jerusalem: A Palestinian's Perspective (2015)

 

http://www.npr.org/2015/10/28/452466412/what-its-like-to-live-in-east-jerusalem-a-palestinians-perspective

 

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

We have one perspective now on life in east Jerusalem. It's one of countless perspectives, of course, at a moment of especially troubling violence in numerous parts of Israel of the West Bank and Gaza. Young Palestinians have stabbed Israeli Jews apparently at random. Israeli settlers have attacked Palestinian farmers harvesting olives. What's been described is a kind of leaderless Palestinian uprising centered on east Jerusalem. That's historically the Arab side of that city. And its Palestinian residents include the man we'll meet next, Zachariah Sabella. He's a development worker. He's 31 years old and has spent his life under Israeli governance in east Jerusalem. What's it been like to grow up as a Palestinian in east Jerusalem?

ZACHARIAH SABELLA: Well, it wasn't the easiest of lives growing up here. It's really a segregated city. Israeli and Arab neighborhoods are really disconnected from one another. The services, municipal services, to Israeli neighborhoods and the Palestinian neighborhoods are not the same. Infrastructure is relatively weak in east Jerusalem. So it's not the best of lives.

INSKEEP: We should remind people that this is an area that was captured by Israel in a 1967 war. Israelis have annexed east Jerusalem as part of Israel. Much of the world does not accept that. Do people in your area, just people you talk with, broadly accept the idea that they are part of Israel?

SABELLA: No, they don't accept the idea that they are part of Israel. East Jerusalem is an integral part of the future Palestinian state. That's at least how people feel here. It's really a neglected part of town, and, you know, people are kind of lost. They feel neglected. They feel that their needs aren't cared for. Seventy-five percent of the population here lives below the poverty line. So you know, it's hard really to have a good life in this part of town.

INSKEEP: Does that in any way, though, justify the violence of recent days?

SABELLA: It doesn't justify the violence. I think the majority of people here reject violence. It's not a nice thing, obviously. But at the end of the day, people understand where it's coming from. You know, when you have young Palestinians with no prospects, no economic prospects, no social activities, no hope, and a lack of a political vision for these young people, they have nothing to lose. And, you know, it's - violence is not only one-sided, you know. You have to also look at the violence coming from the other side.

INSKEEP: There's been something strange about these knife attacks, though. It's not like individuals are lashing out at the state, lashing out at security services. They're stabbing random people on the street.

SABELLA: I really can't understand the mindset of someone who wants to stab another person. But at the end of the day, it's a symptom of a bigger problem. And, you know, we've been saying this for a very long time. A lack of a political vision to end the occupation of the Palestinian people once and for all is going to empower those who have no hope to, you know, to act in such a violent manners. You know, the problem is much bigger than somebody waking up in the morning and saying, you know, I want to stab someone. It's really deeper than that. And those who try to attempt to, you know, portray it as a result of incitement or because people simply hate, you know, others, it's simplifying really a more complex problem.

INSKEEP: Although there certainly has been incitement online and elsewhere.

SABELLA: I mean, incitement is subjective. I mean, if you look at the political rhetoric of some of the Israeli officials, that can be incitement. You have ministers today in the Israeli government that have taken pride in killing Arabs and that have called, you know, Palestinian children little snakes and who have called Palestinians animals. These are the people that are in government today in Israel. And, yes, of course, I mean, people have to tone down the rhetoric, but we have to be a bit objective at looking at, you know, both sides of the equation.

INSKEEP: How has daily life changed in east Jerusalem these last few weeks?

SABELLA: As a Palestinian, I was a little bit anxious because, you know, there was - we looked at social media, we looked at, you know, news reports, and we constantly saw, you know, the extra judicial killings of Palestinian youth, the news reports in Israel portrayed as, you know, all those killings are necessary. But, you know, when you look at some of those videos, you're really shocked, and that caused a bit of anxiety for young Palestinians like myself. So, you know, we tried to stay home as much as possible, and it wasn't pleasant. I think things are relatively calming down in terms of, I guess, violence. But still you see restrictions on access and movement for the Palestinian neighborhoods, and people are not happy about that.

INSKEEP: Zachariah Sabella, thank you very much.

SABELLA: You're welcome.

Hunt for Israelis who killed

Hunt for Israelis who killed Eritrean man falsely implicated in bus attack

 

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/19/hunt-for-israelis-who-killed-eritrean-man-falsely-implicated-in-bus-attack

 

Israeli police are hunting members of a group of Israelis who killed an Eritrean migrant after mistakenly identifying him as a terrorist involved in an attack at a bus station.

Haftom Zarhum was shot repeatedly by a security guard then kicked and spat at by a mob after going to the southern Israeli city of Beersheba to pick up his renewed work visa. He was walking past the central bus station with a group of friends when an Israeli Bedouin armed with a gun and knife attacked a bus, killing an Israeli soldier and injuring 10 others.

 

In the panic surrounding the attack, Zarhum was identified as a suspected accomplice, apparently based on his appearance. The Israeli daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth was among several media organisations that left no ambiguity as to why it believed he had been shot. Monday’s headline read: “Just because of his skin colour.”

In events that some Israeli media called a lynching, Zarhum was shot and wounded before being shot several more times by a security guard at the bus station as he crawled along the floor. Still alive, he was then surrounded by people who cursed and spat at him, kicked him in the head and tried to hit him with a chair.

As paramedics tried to rescue him, the crowd chanted “Death to Arabs”, “Arabs out!” and “Am Israel Hai” (“The people of Israel still live”) and tried to stop them. “It’s terrible,” said a foreign ministry spokesman, Emmanuel Nahshon, one of a number of officials to comment on the killing. “It shows you what a terrible situation we are in.”

 

In Beersheba on Monday, Zarhum’s Eritrean friends and co-workers were gathered on a bench not far from the bus station, including Amani Tewelde who was with him when he was killed.

“We were waiting at the bus station,” Tewelde said. “The bus was late and then someone started shooting. ‘Mila’ went one way and I went to the other side. They shot him twice. Then I saw them kicking him. Someone found his visa and was holding it shouting he’s Eritrean, he’s not a terrorist, but no one could hear him.”

Habtom Hagos said Zarhum had been in Israel three and a half years and was in Beerseheba to renew his work visa. “He was waiting for the bus to go back to the moshav where he lived and worked,” he said. “He had no gun. Why did they shoot him?”

Zarhum worked at the moshav (a cooperative agricultural community) of Ein HaBesor near the southern Gaza border. His employer described him as a modest and hardworking man who had fled Eritrea to Israel for safety.

 

“He was a good guy and a hard worker who lived here,” said Sagi Malchi. “It breaks my heart. I think the man was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Zarhum’s killing came after one of the most serious attacks in recent weeks of escalating violence and underscored a febrile and dangerous atmosphere in which there have been a number of revenge attacks on Palestinians and Israeli Arabs. One previous attempted attack in Netanya was prevented by other Israelis.

The Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, on Monday warned against vigilantism. “We’ve a country of law. No one will take the law into his own hands,” he told his party’s lawmakers in broadcast remarks on Zarhum’s death.

In the past fortnight, 41 Palestinians, including assailants and demonstrators at anti-Israeli protests, eight Israelis and one Eritrean have been killed.

The attack on Zarhum was caught on video, with one person taking part telling Army Radio: “I saw people gathering around him.” The man, only identified as Dudu, added: “I understood from the people around him he was a terrorist. If I had known I would have helped him. In a moment of fear and pressure you do things you don’t understand.

 

“All the people gathering around the man attacked him. Nobody was helping him. People just were making sure he doesn’t move. There is no human being who did not kick or beat him. Everyone took part. I couldn’t sleep last night thinking about what happened and I feel sick about myself.”

Another witness told the Yedioth Ahronoth website, Ynet: “People took out their rage on the wounded Eritrean and abused him. We thought he was one of the terrorists. He was shot in the legs and the real terrorist ran outside.”

As Israeli police announced an investigation into the attack on Zarhum, they said they were looking for individuals who had attacked him after he was incapacitated by the first gunshot.

His employer, Malchi, said Zarhum had worked for a year running one of his greenhouses. “In general I don’t know all my workers. I knew him and in the course of the last months we spoke a lot. He was a modest guy, very quiet, and he did his job in the best possible way.

“I was watching the news and I saw what happened and I saw an Eritrean but didn’t recognise him. What I feel is sadly familiar. It is a bad day. And I also feel bad for the family of the soldier who was killed.”

 

Describing those involved in the brutal attack, Malchi said: “It is a shame people in Israel have this barbaric attitude. A pity that a small group of people do this terrible service to our country.”

Condemning Zarhum’s killing, Human Rights Watch described it as “a tragic but foreseeable outgrowth of a climate in which some Israeli politicians encourage citizens to take the law into their own hands”.

Sari Bashi, the Israel-Palestine director at HRW, added: “The Israeli authorities should investigate and prosecute those responsible for the attack. Israel faces acute threats to public safety, but vigilantism will only lead to more innocent people being harmed or killed.”

The recent violence was set off in part by Palestinians’ anger over what they see as increased Jewish encroachment on Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque complex.

The US secretary of state, John Kerry, who is due to hold separate meetings this week with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, said on Monday it was vital to clarify the status around the compound, also revered by Jews as the location of two destroyed biblical temples.

“I don’t have specific expectations except to try to move things forward, and that will depend on the conversations themselves,” Kerry told reporters in Madrid.

Netanyahu has said he seeks no change to the decades-old status quo in which Israel bans Jewish prayer at the al-Aqsa site in the walled old city of East Jerusalem, captured along with the West Bank in a 1967 war.
