Following the discovery of the body of 16-year-old Palestinian Mohamed Abu Khdeir, believed to be killed by Israeli extremists following the murder of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, Prime Minister of ‪Israel‬ Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli politicians attempted to distance themselves from the racism and extremism that may have fueled it.
However, senior Israeli political and religious figures routinely make racist statements inciting hatred against Palestinians and other non-Jews, and many observers accuse the government of complicity in so-called “price tag” attacks and other violence carried out by Israeli extremists against ‪Palestinians‬.

Palestinians Dream of Return (June 2014)

A lifetime has passed since hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were forced out their homes in the Mideast war over Israel’s 1948 creation.

Today, those who were uprooted and their descendants number more than 5 million people, scattered across the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. About one-third of the refugees still live in camps, or tent cities that have been transformed into crowded urban slums. Some families live in the camps for the fourth generation.

The plight of millions of refugees everywhere is marked June 20, 2014 on World Refugee Day. The United Nations Refugee Agency says that at the end of 2013, more than 50 million people have been forced to flee their homes worldwide, the highest figure of displacement since World War II.

More than 700,000 Palestinians fled or were driven out in the 1948 Mideast war, according to U.N. figures. The war began after Israel declared its independence and surrounding Arab nations invaded. Tens of thousands more Palestinians were displaced in the 1967 war in which Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem.

In the Jenin camp in the northern West Bank, murals express the hardships of life in exile and the yearning to return to what is now Israel. 

Fatimah Jalamneh, 85, spends her day sitting by the doorway of her house in an alley in the camp. She was in her late teens when her family fled from the village of Noures near what is now the Israeli town of Afula. ”Until death takes me away, my only dream is to go back to my village and sit under a tree in my home which was taken away from me and my children,” said Jalamneh, a great-grandmother.

Abduljalil Al-Noursi, 70, sat in front of a large mural showing a ship and the words “We will return” written on the sail. Al-Nursi was 4 years old when he and 19 relatives fled with just the clothes on their backs. “I won’t let go of my right of return,” he said.

The fate of the Palestinian refugees is one of the most explosive issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Israel saying it cannot accept a mass return because that would dilute the state’s Jewish majority. Palestinian negotiators say each refugee has the right to choose between return and resettling, whether in a future state of Palestine or a third country.

The World Day Against Child Labor

Hundreds of millions of girls and boys throughout the world are engaged in work that deprives them of adequate education, health, leisure and basic freedoms, violating their rights. Of these children, more than half are exposed to the worst forms of child labour such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities such as drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as involvement in armed conflict.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) launched the first World Day Against Child Labour in 2002 as a way to highlight the plight of these children. The day, which is observed on June 12, is intended to serve as a catalyst for the growing worldwide movement against child labour, reflected in the huge number of ratifications of ILO Convention No. 182 on the worst forms of child labour and ILO Convention No. 138 on the minimum age for employment.

The World Day Against Child Labor provides and opportunity to gain further support of individual governments and that of the ILO social partners, civil society and others, including schools, youth and women’s groups as well as the media, in the campaign against child labour. (www.ilo.org)

Pictures from around Palestine in “day of Rage” against Prawer Plan, November 30.2013.(read: Another Nakba , the Prawer-Begin Bill  : A plan that will lead to the uprooting and forcible eviction of dozens of villages and 30-40,000 Palestinian Bedouin residents)

(These protests showed that Palestinians are untied against occupation whenever they live or under which authorities ) 

 (Ma’an) — A global “Day of Rage” against the Prawer Plan took place in nearly 30 cities worldwide on Saturday, Nov. 30., and dozens were detained as Israeli police attacked protests .

Large demonstrations in more than 14 countries united Palestinians,  and citizens of many other countries in protest against the plan, which if implemented will displace tens of thousands of Bedouins from their homes in southern Israel.

Although the protests were largely peaceful worldwide, protestors were met with force within Israel, as Israeli police attacked the large demonstrations in the Negev, Haifa, Umm al-Fahm and Jerusalem, detaining dozens. 

Protestors in the West Bank were also met with force, and three Palestinians were detained as they marched near Ramallah towards the Israeli settlement of Bet El.

Particularly striking about the protests inside Israel were that Israeli police used violent tactics of “riot dispersal” commonly used against Palestinians in the West Bank but rarely seen within Israel. 

The majority of demonstrators in the Negev, Haifa, Jaffa, and Jerusalem were Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, a factor that activists said encouraged Israeli police to use levels of violence rarely witnessed by majority-Jewish protesters.(see videos)
