Jerusalem – Ma'an
– The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage expressed concern
over excavations carried out on the Sultan's Pool, adjacent to the Old
City of Jerusalem last week, saying it feared the "Islamic site would be
destroyed." According to a statement by the Israeli Antiquities
Authority (IAA), what was uncovered was a Mamluk bridge, "covered over"

Al Walaja, Beit Jala protest illegal wall
Al Walaja village, close to Bethlehem, faces the threat of being totally
isolated from the surrounding countryside by an apartheid wall which is
currently under construction. When it is finished the only access
villagers will have to the outside world is through a tunnel which can
be opened or closed at the whim of the Israeli authorities. This
nightmarish prospect is being protested each Sunday by the villagers,
supported by Israeli and international sympathisers. This Sunday, 23
May, approximately 70 protesters attempted to march from the village to
the site of the wall’s construction. Before they could reach their
objective they were met by a squad of a dozen border police who ordered
them to disperse. They chose instead to sit in the roadway, where they
were addressed in English and Arabic by a resistance
leader, who emphasised the justness of their cause.

Palestinians step up non-violent resistance: Yet
another round of peace talks
In recent days, a Palestinian teenager was
shot dead in the West Bank, allegedly by an Israeli settler, and army
gunfire killed an elderly farmer in the Gaza Strip, near the Israeli
border. The letters also address “the numerous Israeli provocative
statements of the last few days”, Erakat said, in reference to
statements by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other officials that
Israeli settlement construction would continue in occupied Arab East
Jerusalem. Following the meeting with Abbas in the West Bank’s political
capital Ramallah, Mitchell went to East Jerusalem with Erakat for
further consultations. “Our discussions with Mitchell revolve around all
the final status issues and we will focus on the questions of borders
and security during
the four months of proximity talks”, Erakat said.

Zone on Capitol Hill, Henry Norr
The U.S. Campaign to End

into a three-minute video entitled The Twilight Zone on

amusing, but if you want a quick taste of the rhetoric our legislators
use to justify giving their constituents' dollars to Israel, this is a
place to start.

Attempt to Arm South African Apartheid Regime with Nuclear Weapons
Alliance": New Book Documents Arms, Nuclear and Diplomatic Ties Between
Israel and Apartheid South Africa
Israeli President Shimon
Peres has denied reports he offered to sell nuclear weapons to apartheid
South Africa when he was defense minister in the 1970s. On Sunday the
Guardian newspaper of London published top-secret South African
documents revealing that a secret meeting between then defense minister
Shimon Peres, and his South African counterpart PW Botha, ended with an
offer by Peres for the sale of warheads "in three sizes." The documents
were first uncovered by senior editor at Foreign Affairs Sasha
Polakow-Suransky, author of the new book "The Unspoken Alliance:
Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa."

Reaction to 'Israeli nuclear weapons offer'
For decades Israel has neither confirmed or denied it has nuclear
weapons. But that policy of ambiguity now appears to have been
undermined. South African government documents, once classified as top
secret, are said to show an agreement for Israel to supply nuclear
warheads in 1975, during the years of aparthied rule. Shimon Peres,
Israel's incumbernt president was is alleged to have been involved in
the deal 35 years ago, has been forced to make a strongly worded denial.
Yossi Melman, an intelligence correspondent with the Haaretz newspaper,
spoke to Al Jazeera from Tel Aviv about the claims.

Israeli minister attacked in Jerusalem
JERUSALEM, May 24 (Reuters) - Ultra-Orthodox Jewish protesters threw
stones at Israeli cabinet minister Eli Yishai and slashed the tyres of
his vehicle in Jerusalem on Monday, but he was whisked away from the

and an Orthodox Jew himself, was paying a condolence call in the largely
religious Meah Shearim neighbourhood when he was attacked.

deputy chairman of Hamas' political bureau.
dilemma on way to reconciliation, talks with Israel
May 25 (Xinhua) -- Unlike its Islamic rivals who control Gaza, the West
Bank-based Palestinian National Authority (PNA) has settled on the
U.S.-proposed indirect peace negotiations with Israel in parallel with
adopting non-violent resistance against Jewish settlement activities.
In Gaza, Hamas, which took over the coastal enclave by force in 2007,
has been maintaining a ceasefire with Israel since the end of Gaza war
last year; neither allowing other factions to fire rockets into Israel
nor encouraging peaceful demonstrations against Israel's attempts to
enforce a buffer zone along its borders with Gaza.

May Is About
Memories, Eva Bartlett
GAZA CITY, May 23, 2010 (IPS) - This

in which more than 700,000 women, men and children were pushed off their
land and rendered homeless refugees by the Zionist attacks before,
during and after the founding of Israel in 1948.
Israel's Transfer Scheme, Hussein Shobokshi
The eyes of the Arab world are intensely focused on fears of a possible
Israeli strike against Lebanon or Syria or even Iran. But the biggest
fear lies in the secret scheme that is being whispered against the West
Bank. Israel continues to believe that the biggest obstacle to its
expansionist policy and settlement construction activities is the
Palestinian human "numbers" on the lands of the West Bank. This intense
and major Palestinian presence is the "truth" that is facing and
delaying Israel's expansionist designs.
Tea Party Candidates Are Owned By Israel? Rand Paul
and Israel, Philip Klein
I've obtained a document that the Rand Paul campaign is circulating to
those interested in his views on Israel, and it's interesting to see how
the positions he's taking as a Republican Senate candidate in Kentucky
differ from those adopted by his father, Rep. Ron Paul, a harsh critic
of U.S.-Israel ties.
aligns itself with settler movement– game on!, Philip Weiss
Michael Steele appeared
a pro-settler rally in New York on Sunday, with all kinds of
hard-core nuts there, Matt Duss reports, and said Obama was leaving
Israel "to fend for itself." Crazy. But it shows the political stakes
here. And does suggest that the lobby is in play, politically, which
would be a great thing. This means that Democratic-aligned publications
are finally permitted to do reporting on tax breaks for the settlers.
Dershowitz falsely suggests that Chomsky is against
the existence of Israel, Philip Weiss
In this interview
with Jerusalem Post, Dershowitz says that the left wants to
revolutionize 1948-- end Israel/create one democracy in
Israel/Palestine-- and that makes his 80 percent case for Israel (80
percent good, that means!) easier. Notice below that he uses strawmen
Norman Finkelstein and Noam Chomsky. But both men are for the two-state
solution! Chomsky has vestiges of Zionist idealism... And I believe many
on the left would accept the existence of Israel if it ceases to be an
occupier practicing Jim Crow against an ethnic-religious minority. But
Israel doesn't seem to want to give up those practices; and, putting on
my realist hat, the terrible reality is that it's one state right now,
how do you go about creating a viable Palestinian state? Dershowitz
course notions such a thing. The notions never end, and meanwhile the
world gets Kosovo, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan-- many other states. Excerpt
begins with Dershowitz's description of a hasbara corps on college
campuses, something like Haim Saban's scheme. Second question gets to
his misrepresentations of Finkelstein and Chomsky.
It wasn’t Edward Said that upset the students; it was the very word
‘Palestinian’, Josh Cohen
I remember AP week at Hunter High
School in New York all too well. The SATs were pro forma. The Advanced
Placements were this realer chance to prove—to yourself, to the kids
surrounding you, to the college that had already accepted you—what you
were definitely going to become in your near adult future. The tests
were given in school, and the jokes about the Chinese kids suddenly
showing themselves to be even more numerous than we’d imagined were
funny. You bet, extrapolate a census from one of those testing rooms and
you’d likely have concluded that Chinese- and Korean-Americans ruled New
York City—them, but also, of course, us. And yet when it came to tests
and grades the Jew jokes were fewer—we were the jokers, that was part of
it—we were more visible on stage and at parties, having more mixed sex,
from Manhattan and Brooklyn Heights.
Living the Nakba in Gaza
GAZA CITY, occupied Gaza Strip (IPS) - This is the month for
Palestinians to remember their Nakba, or "catastrophe," in which more

Mass graves for piles of lies, Bouthaina Shaaban
When Israel has proven its aggressive nature to the whole world, when
the savagery of its wars against its neighbors for over 60 years and the
blockade it is imposing on unarmed civilians in Gaza have been exposed,
and when its government has shown the extent of its extremism, the
United States embarked on an effort to start negotiations of any kind
between Israel and the Palestinians. It is acknowledged by everyone that
these negotiations are not based on a clear frame of reference,
particularly in relation to Jerusalem and the return of the refugees.
This is meant as a cover to the policies of those who launched the war
on Gaza and have never stopped robbing the Palestinians of their land,
destroying their homes and killing their children. Benjamin Netanyahu’s
extremism is such that he wants to give a religious Jewish
interpretation to the ethnic cleansing of Arab East Jerusalem.

Take My Ice Cream Stick from Me Anymore
remember the summer of 1982 when Israel invaded Lebanon. I was nine
years old and my father had promised to give me half a Lira (Lebanese
pound) to buy ice cream. But the footage showing Israeli tanks crossing
the border into south Lebanon was enough to deprive me of my treat for
the rest of the day and deprive southerners of their freedom for the
next 18 years. I’m not sure about the relevance of this lead to the rest
of the article, but I think this retrospection is as useful as looking
at the post 2000 withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from most of
south Lebanon. The pullout was not just an event; it was a historic
precedent. True, Israel withdrew from Jordan and Sinai after Amman and
Cairo were coerced to sign agreements with the triumphant, undefeatable,
and arrogant Zionist state.
