The General Apartheid Israel Occupation Radio has announced that Doctors for Human Rights in Apartheid Israel Occupation has filed a suit before the Central Court of Ber Alsaba demanding that it order the Apartheid Israel Occupation Prison Service to remove chains tied to Palestinian hunger striker Bilal Kayed, who has been on hunger strike for 39 days.
Kayed went on a hunger strike demanding his freedom after he was placed under an administrative detention order on the day he was supposed to be released after serving 14.5 years in Apartheid Israel Occupation jails.

Doctors for Human Rights have stated that tying a person to his bed negates the principles of human rights as well as the law of dealing with a sick person, and even the regulations of the Apartheid Israel Occupation Prison Service itself.

Tensions rise in Apartheid Israel Occupation’s prisons as 100 Palestinian prisoners join mass hunger strike
RAMALLAH (Ma‘an) 27 July — Tensions have continued to mount inside Apartheid Israel Occupation’s prisons as at least 100 Palestinian prisoners have joined a mass hunger strike in solidarity with hunger-striking prisoners Bilal Kayid and brothers Muhammad and Mahmud al-Balboul, according to statement released by the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs on Wednesday. A lawyer from the committee said that Apartheid Israel Occupation Prison Service (IPS) raided the cells of the hunger-striking prisoners and transferred prisoners to other Apartheid Israel Occupation jails in an attempt to separate the prisoners and force them to end their strikes. According to the statement, IPS officials have also imposed punishments on Palestinians participating in the strike, including placing them in solitary confinement, confiscating their personal belongings and electrical devices, enforcing a financial penalty of 600 shekels ($156), and depriving the prisoners of family visitations for two months. The committee also stated that Palestinian hunger-striking prisoner Bilal Kayid’s condition was “life-threatening” as a result of his 44-day strike….

2) Palestinians Mark 44th Anniversary of Death of Ghassan Kanafani
Jul 23 2016 / 1:23 pm

By Palestine Chronicle Staff

Palestinians worldwide, and their supporters yesterday marked the 44th anniversary of the assassination of Ghassan Kanafani by Apartheid Israel Occupation in Beirut in 1972 by planting explosives in his car. Kanafani’s niece Lamees Nijim, 17, was killed with him.
Kanafani was born in 1936 to a Palestinian family in Acre, and was expelled along with his family during the Nakba to Sidon in 1948. He contributed a number of short stories and novels that are still widely read. His works include Men in the Sun and Returning to Haifa.

“The Palestinian cause is not a cause for Palestinians only, but a cause for every revolutionary, wherever they are, as a cause of the exploited and oppressed masses in our era.” – Ghassan Kanafani…

Kanafani won a number of literary awards such as Friends of the Book Award in 1966 in Lebanon, and was awarded the Medal of Jerusalem in 1990.
After his assassination, Kanafani’s body was unrecognizable, yet today, all Palestinians and their supporters worldwide revere him.

3) Apartheid Israel Occupation’s West Bank land grabs biggest in decades

Charlotte Silver Rights and Accountability 30 March 2016

This month, Apartheid Israel Occupation announced two sweeping land grabs in the northern and central occupied West Bank, prompting anti-settlement group Peace Now to warn that the Apartheid Israel Occupation government had reverted to its major land confiscation policies pre-dating the 1993 Oslo accords.

On 21 March, Apartheid Israel Occupation authorities began notifying Palestinian residents of the Nablus-area villages of al-Sawiya, al-Lubban al-Sharqiya and Qaryout that their land would be declared “state land” and become part of the Apartheid Israel Occupation settlement Eli.

The villages had been appealing the inclusion of their lands in the settlement to Apartheid Israel Occupation’s high court since 2014.

The total amount seized is unclear, with Palestinian sources reporting 1,200 dunums (300 acres) and Apartheid Israel Occupation’s occupation administration COGAT reporting 612 dunums would be added to Eli.

A week prior to that, Apartheid Israel Occupation announced it would confiscate 2,342 dunams (579 acres) of land near Jericho and along the corridor between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, a valuable thoroughfare for the tourism industry.

According to Peace Now, the land will be used to construct hundreds of new housing units, as well as tourist sites and souvenir shops along the road.

Within this area are also 20 villages of the Bedouin Jahalin tribe, which Apartheid Israel Occupation has been trying to forcibly displace.

Apartheid Israel Occupation intends to build thousands of settler housing units in the area between Jerusalem and Jericho, in the occupied West Bank, which it calls E1.

The new Apartheid Israel Occupation colonies would further isolate East Jerusalem from the rest of the occupied West Bank and divide the West Bank from north to south.

While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delayed the massive E1 project in 2013 in response to international pressure, he has quietly revived construction plans.

Last December, Peace Now reported it had obtained documents under the freedom of information law that showed the housing ministry was planning to build thousands of homes in E1.

“In a way, they are cutting off the West Bank with this latest announcement because the lands are located in a strategic area,” Jamal Juma, the coordinator for the Stop the Wall grassroots campaign, told Middle East Eye.

“They lie next to the Green Line on one side and extend all the way to the Jordan Valley,” he added, using a common term for the 1949 armistice line that separates Apartheid Israel Occupation as it was established in 1948 from the West Bank, which it occupied in 1967. “If carried out, this will mean that the entire north of the West Bank will be cut off from the middle of the West Bank.”

Less than two years ago, Apartheid Israel Occupation announced the seizure of 1,000 dunums near Bethlehem, eliciting similar disavowals – and a similar absence of concrete action – from US and UN officials.

Indeed, most of the land on which settlements now stand was declared “state land” by Apartheid Israel Occupation’s military during the 1980s, after Apartheid Israel Occupation’s high court ruled that settlements could not be built on private Palestinian land expropriated through military orders.

So instead, after that 1979 ruling, Apartheid Israel Occupation began expropriating large swaths of Palestinian land simply by declaring it “state land.”…/israels-west-bank-land-gra…

4) Hamdallah visits sit-in in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners
BETHLEHEM (Ma‘an) 24 July — Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Sunday joined a sit-in in front of Bethlehem’s Nativity Church in the southern occupied West Bank, organized by activists showing solidarity for the dozens of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners held in Apartheid Israel Occupation custody. Bethlehem Governor Jibrin al-Bakri accompanied Hamdallah during the visit. Hamdallah told families of prisoners and solidarity activists that his government and the Palestinian president “have always treated the prisoners issue as a top priority,” Muhammad Hamida, who heads a Bethlehem-based prisoners’ rights group, told Ma‘an. Hamida added that he told Hamdallah and his delegation that both governmental and popular work was needed in order to help hunger-striking prisoners in Apartheid Israel Occupation custody. Several local and foreign delegations have visited the sit-in tent in the past few days to show solidarity, including a delegation of 200 people from different European countries, and an official delegation from Saudi Arabia. The tent was installed on Thursday to call attention to the dozens of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners protesting the Apartheid Israel Occupation policy of administrative detention — internment without charge or trial under undisclosed evidence. Member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Bilal Kayid entered his 40th day without food on Saturday, in one of the most high-profile hunger strikes against administrative detention since Palestinian journalist Muhammad al-Qiq came near death during a 94-day hunger strike before he was finally released in May.

5) Voter registration centers open for 5 days across West Bank, Gaza Strip
RAMALLAH (Ma‘an) 23 July – The Palestinian Central Elections Commission (CEO) announced Saturday that voter registration centers would be open from Saturday until Wednesday in all local and municipal councils across the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip in preparations for the upcoming local elections in October. CEO Secretary-General Lamis al-Alami made the announcement during a news conference in the city of al-Bireh in the central West Bank district of Ramallah, adding that 1,032 voter registration centers had opened in 416 councils in the Palestinian territory, expected to remain open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for five days. Al-Alami encouraged Palestinian citizens to travel to the centers to update their information and confirm their registration on CEO’s website. According to CEO, registered voters in the West Bank and Gaza reached more than 1,900,000 as of March 31, with the overall registration rate in the occupied West Bank at 75 percent and 84 percent in the besieged Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Authority announced last month that local elections would be held in the Palestinian territory on Oct. 8, with Hamas announcing their participation last week, paving the way for elections to be held in the Gaza Strip for the first time in a decade.

6) High Court of Justice okays transfer of ancient library to western Jerusalem
JPost 24 July by Daniel K. Eisenbud — The High Court of Justice rejected a petition from a left-wing NGO to block the transfer of an ancient library from the Rockefeller Museum in east Jerusalem to the new, sprawling Apartheid Israel Occupation Antiquities Authority headquarters being built in the western portion of the capital, it was announced Sunday. Emek Shaveh, a consortium of European-funded archeologists and activists, petitioned the court on May 4 to prevent the pending transfer, shortly after the authority announced its intention to relocate the relics to its state-of-the art facility, which will open to the public in the coming months. In its petition, the NGO claimed that the move “violates the international law against the transfer of archeological finds from an occupied territory.” “The Rockefeller Museum was founded by the British as an international antiquities museum, and served as a meeting place for Apartheid Israel Occupation, Palestinian, and international scholars and visitors,” Emek Shaveh said in an accompanying statement. … The transfer of archeological finds and the Rockefeller library to west Jerusalem is part of the Apartheid Israel Occupation trend of establishing facts on the ground regarding politically controversial issues.” ……/High-Court-of-Justice-okays-transfer…

7) Apartheid Israel Occupation forces detain 4, including Oscar-nominated filmmaker and journalist, in Bilin protest
JULY 22, 2016 7:44 P.M. (UPDATED: JULY 24, 2016 7:52 P.M.) Facebook709Twitter
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Apartheid Israel Occupation forces detained four people, including a journalist and an Oscar-nominated filmmaker, as soldiers dispersed weekly protests in the village of Bilin in the Ramallah district of the occupied West Bank on Friday.
Apartheid Israel Occupation forces detained Iranian television reporter Khalid Sabarnah, the head of the local council Basil Mansur, activist Ashraf Abu Rahma, and filmmaker Emad Burnat, the Oscar-nominated director of the documentary film “5 Broken Cameras,” a film showing Burnat’s first-hand account of the protests in Bilin that began 11 years ago in response to the illegal expansion of nearby Apartheid Israel Occupation settlements, and the construction of Apartheid Israel Occupation’s separation wall which separates Bilin residents from their privately owned lands.
Bilin has long been one of the most active villages in organized opposition against Apartheid Israel Occupation policies, as residents have protested every Friday for 11 consecutive years.
Zionist forces targeted the western neighborhood of the village, firing rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades, and tear gas canisters, afflicting elderly locals, children, and women with tear gas suffocation.

8) Statement No. 10: Leader of the PFLP Prison Branch and his deputy join open hunger strike
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine branch in Apartheid Israel Occupation prisons
June 24 2016
In light of the rapid developments and the deterioration of the health of Comrade Bilal Kayed and his continued hospitalization, we in the branch of the PFLP in the prisons of the occupation emphasize the following:
1) The leader of the Popular Front branch in Apartheid Israel Occupation prisons and his deputy, held in isolation in Hadarim prison, will launch the open hunger strike on Sunday 24 July along with a new group of prisoners in Ofer prison. This step is part of the escalating confrontation of the prison administration and new groups of prisoners will continue to join the collective strike so long as there is no resolution of this case.
2) Continuation of the protest program running parallel to the collective open hunger strike, including the return of meals, resistance and refusal in roll call, and other steps of protest and pressure on the prison administration.
3) Emphasis on continuing and escalating the popular momentum and support in various forms, at all levels and in all locations in support of the struggle for freedom of the heroic prisoner Bilal Kayed and his fellow struggling prisoners.
4) Salutes to the efforts of the comrades in the Progressive Student Labor Front in launching the international call for student solidarity with the prisoners and Comrade Bilal Kayed. Many student organization internationally have responded to this call. We consider this appeal very important and should be circulated to all student unions and organizations to build international pressure on the occupation and build solidarity for the struggle of the prisoners.
5) We call on all progressive forces in the world to participate in the international solidarity activities taking place with Comrade Bilal Kayed and the Palestinian prisoners through the date of July 30, as in the call launched by the international Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.

9) Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas conveys intent to sue U.K. over Balfour Declaration that expressed sympathy for the Zionist cause
Almost 100 years after Lord Arthur James Balfour, as foreign secretary, wrote that his government views “with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people,” the Palestinian Authority said Monday that it would file a lawsuit against the U.K. over that letter, which was considered a major diplomatic victory at the time and a milestone in the history of the Zionist movement.
In 2012, the U.N. General Assembly voted to accept “Palestine” as a non-member observer state, and later the PA signed the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. In the wake of those two developments, the PA has repeatedly stated that it would use its new status to put the legal spotlight on Apartheid Israel Occupation, be it through international courts or in other legal and diplomatic forums. The proposal on Monday was the latest such effort.…

Palestinian president plans to sue Britain over 1917 Balfour Declaration and support for Apartheid Israel Occupationndependent 27 July by Lizzie Dearden — The declaration announced the British government’s support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine — The Palestinian president has announced his intention to sue the British Government over a 1917 declaration that paved the way for the creation of Apartheid Israel Occupation. Mahmoud Abbas’ statement, delivered in his absence by foreign minister Riyad al-Maliki, was given at the opening of this week’s Arab League summit in Mauritania. It called on other states in the alliance to help the Palestinian government launch a lawsuit against the UK over the Balfour Declaration and the subsequent creation of Apartheid Israel Occupation in 1948. Mr Abbas accused Britain of supporting “Apartheid Israel Occupation crimes” since the end of the Mandate for Palestine, and claimed the country was among the parties responsible for the exodus of Palestinian refugees. “Nearly a century has passed since the issuance of the Balfour Declaration in 1917,” his statement said according to a transcript published by the Wafa news agency. “And based on this ill-omened promise hundreds of thousands of Jews were moved from Europe and elsewhere to Palestine at the expense of our Palestinian people whose parents and grandparents had lived for thousands of years on the soil of their homeland.” Mr al-Maliki told delegates in Nouakchott the lawsuit would be filed in an international court but did not give further details. The speech characterised the Balfour Declaration as a “fateful promise from those who do not own to those who do not deserve”….…/palestinian-president-plans-…
