Human Rights Abuses in Israel and Occupied Palestine

February 5, 2010 - Founded in 1972, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) is its leading human and civil rights organization through activities involving litigation, legal advocacy, education, and public outreach. Each year it publishes an annual report covering flagrant violations, positive trends, if any, and "significant human rights-related processes" affecting Israelis and Palestinians. Its latest December 2009 one is examined below, discussing "a disturbing (government-sponsored) trend that has (gained) currency in Israel over the past year - both in public discourse and sometimes in practice - to make human rights conditional: on fulfilling some obligation, having financial means, or belonging (or not belonging) to certain groups."...

"Since 1948, Israel denied its Arab citizens fundamental human and civil rights and increasingly fewer of them to many Jews. In the Territories, it's far worse under military occupation and Israeli laws affording no protections to Palestinians. Nor has the Supreme Court upheld the law that should be sacrosanct in a legitimate democracy. When it's compromised, no one is immune from abuse and neglect as greater numbers in Israel are learning, including Jews."

The United States, Israel and the Retreat of Freedom (2/2/10)
Freedom House's report reveals more about the groupthink of the US establishment -- especially with respect to its continued efforts to dominate the Middle East and ensure Israel's supremacy -- than it does about the countries surveyed.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED? I WANT TO KNOW...
by Les Visible

I like to think of myself as a reasonable man. I question things. I question things because not questioning things can get you into trouble. It can also leave you with faulty perceptions about what is real. As we have seen for these last decades you can also get into trouble for questioning things. This thing called holocaust denial is a good example of that. You can’t deny that this thing called, “The Holocaust” happened but… that’s not the whole story. It appears that you can’t question any of it which makes me wonder.



I wasn’t in Germany during the war so I have no idea what happened. However… there is this figure of six millions Jews being murdered in concentration camps. Strangely enough, this figure was being thrown around for decades before the war even occurred. In 1919 this figure was being discussed.



In 1934 World Jewry declared war on Germany. Here we have the Daily Express front page headline and there follows many quotes by powerful Zionist Jews about intention and policy. This is curious stuff. Then you have the official Red Cross figures about how many Jews actually died in the camps and you have all of the other information from their report. What can we make of this documentation by the Red Cross? Further… why is the Red Cross not in prison for holocaust denial? Once again, I wasn’t there but these people were. So what do we make of this? Where is the specific documentation that refutes this?



What do we make of the testimony from the senior curator and director of archives of the Auschwitz State Museum concerning the existence of gas chambers? You will note the specific sources that I am using in regard to claims that have been made.



I’m not going to load this essay with links. These links are merely to show that there are some valid questions about what did and didn’t happen and that brings us to the aggressive push to imprison people who question what happened. There is no other condition where a person can be thrown into prison for anything similar to this. One is not imprisoned for questioning the Ukrainian holocaust and the murder of millions in Russia yet… these events were carried out by The Cheka which was composed mostly of Zionist Jews. Their role in the horrors of this time is not in dispute. The names and dates do not lie.



What is the purpose of silencing dissent? If you are a reasonable person you would say that the presentation of awesome horrors and numbers was to the purpose of establishing the state of Israel. In fact, this can be found in the writings and statements of all of the leading Zionists prior to and after the establishment of Israel. Why would they need Israel? Why would they need a Jewish only state? It appears that they wanted a base of operations for what has followed and the protections granted by having their own sphere of influence as a sovereign nation.



Since the establishment of the nation of Israel there has been a tireless effort to make the world accept and believe something that seems to be very much in dispute and by making it a crime to consider alternative possibilities they have been able to blackmail the nations of the world. This should be obvious. If what we are told is true then it doesn’t matter if it is questioned.



The obvious conclusion that any reasonable person would come to is that it is a crime to investigate this subject because of what an impartial investigation would expose and bring to light. What other conclusion can a reasonable mind come up with? This same suppression is now rampant in terms of who actually carried out the 9/11 attacks. You will find some startling correspondences and coincidences here that apply directly back to the subject under discussion.



It appears that the prevailing impression about what happened in the holocaust is for the purpose of justifying a freedom from all criticism of Jewish activities and a justification for a presently ongoing holocaust being committed against the Palestinian people. A further benefit is the extortion of huge sums of money from the nations of the world as recompense for suffering. There seem to be more holocaust survivors now than there was at the end of the war. How is this possible?



Here is a very curious thing. It was being reported after the war that six million Jews were exterminated in the camps. This included the four million who were supposed to have been killed at Auschwitz. The number was then lowered by three million. How is it now possible that six million is still the presented number? The article cited here is loaded with strange and unusual reports. This is the sort of thing that is repressed and made into a criminal act for investigating it. When you study the information and the sources you really have to wonder and it is understandable that some would want this information suppressed.



How was it possible for Ann Frank to have written her diary with a ballpoint pen? Once again, I wasn’t there but… what are we to make of these official documents from official sources? What are we to make of actual court proceedings? Why is it a crime to note glaring disparities between what certain people claim and the evidence that refutes it?



What do we make of all the recent exposures of fraudulent holocaust memoirs? What do we make of the sudden appearance of so many holocaust films appearing in tandem with the genocide committed in Lebanon and Palestine? Wouldn’t a reasonable mind wonder at the timing of these things? What do we make of the use of illegal weapons by the Israelis upon the Palestinians? What do we make of the eyewitness accounts of the execution of innocents lured from their homes and then murdered in the streets? There are dozens of news reports on this sort of activity as well as the proven use of white phosphorus and the shelling of schools and UN centers where Palestinians fled to seek protection.



A reasonable mind would conclude that the holocaust industry exists for the purpose of justifying inexcusable behavior on the part of a people who claim to be history’s biggest victims.



Common sense reveals a common thread moving through all of the events in recent time. It is extremely hard to come up with a reasonable explanation for what seems to be a landslide of lies devoted to the suppression of any and all criticism. Once again, I wasn’t there so I don’t know. It does seem to be far beyond all reasonable doubt that there is more to what happened than we have been and are being told.



When you look at the whole picture it is impossible not to question this situation and so we have the Swiss Army knife of holocaust denial and anti-Semitic labeling to cover any and all eventualities where the truth might raise its ugly head. You tell me. Don’t jump up and down and scream about how this is anti-Semitic. Explain it to me. Be reasonable and explain it to me. Explain what all this means and explain how none of this applies. I’m a reasonable guy and I would like some answers. After all, people are dying every day because of what is assumed to be true. People are locked up in jails, including the lawyer who defended an accused, simply for defending the accused in court. How crazy is that?



Something doesn’t add up. Therefore I ask in all honesty… explain it to me so that I can understand because I don’t understand. I don’t understand at all.
