The historical truth about Bedouin expulsion from the Negev
Dan Gazit, +972 Magazine 9/5/2013
As nearly 40,000 Bedouins face displacement from their homes as a result of the Begin-Prawer plan, when propagandists on behalf of the state are circulating lies about the Bedouin invasion of national land, it is important to hear the historical facts from an expert who has been living in the region for many years.
Dan Gazit, 76 years old, is an archaeologist from Kibbutz Gvulot, who has done a lot to discover and preserve the ancient history of the Bsor region. He regularly writes about his archaeological findings and the general history of the Negev in his column in Kacha Ze[ That s the way it is ], a magazine serving the residents of the Negev s Eshkol Regional Council. In the 104th edition of the magazine (August 2012), Gazit turned his gaze toward the recent history of his surroundings the events of the War of Independence and the fate of the Negev Bedouin in the years 1948-1952. His fascinating article follows.
Now, when nearly 40,000 Bedouins are facing the threat of being uprooted from their homes as a result of the Begin-Prawer plan, when propagandists on behalf of the state are circulating lies about the Bedouin invasion of national land, it is important to hear the historical facts from an expert who has been living in the region for many years. These facts are probably well-known to many Israelis who lived and were active in the Negev in the 50s but would rather forget them (for an illuminating historical research of Israeli policy towards the Bedouins during Israel s first years, click here). In the midst of the expulsion operation carried out against the al-Arakib tribe in the Rahat area, at the end of 1951, the Negev s military governor, Michael Hanegbi, explained that the reasons for the expulsion were not just security-related, but also economic:
“The Bedouins control an area of around 100,000 Dunams of fertile land in that area, which stands in the way of planning more dense settlement in the area and further development.”
This could have been written nowadays by planners at the Israel Land Administration or the Israeli Ministry of Construction and Housing.more..e-mail

The price of Oslo, a new documentary from Al Jazeera s Palestine under the microscope team
Dr Azzam Tamimi, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) 9/5/2013
I’ve just watched on Al-Jazeera Arabic with interest, amusement and amazement the first part of a new documentary called “The Price of Oslo” produced by Al-Jazeera Programmes Department as part of its series entitled: “Palestine Under the Microscope”. The second part is supposed to be aired next Thursday. I understand that Al-Jazeera English will be airing an English version of the documentary soon.
In its amazing first part, The Price of Oslo reveals untold facts and uncovers documents never before available to the general public about how the Oslo accords between Israel and the PLO came to be. It provides testimonies volunteered by those who were closely associated with the making of Oslo on the Norwegian, Palestinian and Israeli sides.
A number of those interviewed in the first part of the Price of Oslo attest to the fact that Oslo was the personal project of Yasser Arafat, PLO Chairman and Head of the Fatah Movement at the time, himself. He was the one who initiated the project and insisted upon the Norwegians to help him establish a secret back channel to negotiate a settlement with the Israelis. This followed an endeavour by former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to persuade Yasir Arafat, as early as 1974, long before the Camp David Accords between Egypt and Isrel were reached, to seek a negotiated settlement with the Israelis.
What motivated Yasser Arafat to turn his face toward Oslo, the Norwegian capital, was his belief that Norway was the most Zionist and por-Israel country in the Western hemisphere. Some of his associates told him that the Norwegian government at the time was headed by the socialist Labour Party whose politicians believed that Israel was an embodiment of the socialist project.
In the documentary, which was made over a period of more than one year and was shot in Norway as well as in Palestine, Norwegian politicians state that the starting point in the relationship between Norway and Yasser Arafat was he creation in 1978 of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL)…. more..e-mail

Pro-Israel groups mix Iran into Syria debate
Jim Lobe, Asia Times 9/5/2013
WASHINGTON – With the US Congress still deliberating over Barack Obama’s request for authorization to take military action against Syria, the powerful Israel lobby here has taken the lead in pressing the president’s case.
But in addition to echoing the administration’s view that Damascus’ alleged violations of international norms against the use of chemical weapons must be punished, pro-Israel groups are focusing their appeals at least as much, if not more, on stopping what they say is Iran’s nuclear-weapons program.
“The Syria issue needs to be largely understo
od through the context of Iran,” said Michael Makovsky, the director of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), as he unveiled his organizations’s latest report, “Strategy to Prevent a Nuclear Iran”, here on Wednesday.

“Stopping a nuclear-capable Iran is the gravest, most pressing national security threat facing the United States today,” he added, quoting from the introduction of the report, the product of a task force that included several former George W Bush administration officials, several retired flag officers, and Ambassador Dennis Ross, who served as Obama’s top adviser on Iran for most of his first term.
“(I)f there isn’t a [congressional] response to the crossing of the red line [against the use of chemical weapons], the Iranians will draw the lesson that when we create red lines, we don’t mean it,” Ross said.
“So when the administration makes it clear that prevention [of Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapon] is the objective, [the failure to act on Syria] will make it look more rhetorical than real,” according to Ross, who currently serves as counselor to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a pro-Israel think tank. more..e-mail

Saudi and Israel share interest in action against Syria and Iran
Al Quds Newspaper, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) 9/4/2013
If President Barack Obama has disappointed the Syrian opposition by seeking congressional approval for an attack on Syria, he did the same to America’s allies in the Middle East. It is true that Israel and Saudi Arabia have no love for each other, but they are both pressuring their mutual ally to attack the Assad regime. Their sights are not just set on Syria, but also on their common enemy Iran.
The Syria-Iran connection was clear in Israel’s response to the sudden decision by Obama to delay or possibly cancel an air strike against Syria. Israeli officials said that a seemingly lenient response to Assad’s chemical weapon attack might encourage Iran to go ahead and develop nuclear weapons. If that happens, said the Israelis, then they will attack Iran unilaterally because they can no longer trust Washington to do so.
Neither of the US allies disputed publicly with Obama. On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country is “calm and confident”, while Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was content with renewing his call on the “the international community” to stop Assad’s violence in Syria.
Although Saudi Arabia is not as keen as Israel to attack Iran, it shares its concern that they may both have lost confidence in Washington to tackle what Riyadh regards as Tehran’s efforts to extend Iranian influence over the Arab world.
Obama reassured Netanyahu last year that he is “always ready to defend Israel”, while the prime minister is now reassuring Israelis that they can manage their own affairs without America’s hesitant protection in confronting Iran, which has called for the destruction of Israel but denies developing nuclear weapons. “The citizens of Israel are well-aware that we are ready for any potential scenario,” said Netanyahu, “and all Israeli citizens must know that our enemies have extremely strong reasons which stop them from testing our strength and our ability.” more..e-mail

Syria
In Gaza: 4 Sep 2013 – Friends, Please take a look at the resources below, even if you are in the pro- rebel camp (and choose to ignore the huge influx of non-Syrian, US/Saudi-backed, paid and ideological mercenaries). It isn t a merely black and white issue, wherein if you don t take the side of the (al-Qaeda majority, Saudi and US-backed) rebels you are thus pro-government. It is actually possible to examine Syria without projecting the typical Western, colonial, know-better attitude. What is genuinely needed is the political solution that the Syrian government has already shown willingness to participate in, unlike certain mercenary-rebel-elements and their backers. Bottom line: another Libya, another Iraq& won t help Syria and certainly won t surgically remove perceived threats to the US s existence. What a potential bloody humanitarian right-to-protect (right to bomb and pillage) intervention will do is rape yet another country of everything, including its culture, history, identity, and of course people& and further…more

Paul Jay: Portrait of an Anti-Zionist Zionist
Dissident Voice: 5 Sep 2013 – Introduction by Gilad Atzmon A few weeks ago some of us were rather amused to see Max Blumenthal , in conversation with Paul Jay (The Real News Network), deliver the usual anti-Zionist Zionist (AZZ) spiel. After the program many Palestinian solidarity and anti-war commentators were outraged and demanded that Jay provide me with a right to reply. So Jay approached me, asked to clarify a few issues and promised to come back to me shortly with an answer. I didn t hold my breath because since the incident I had learned a little about Jay s political affiliations and motivations. Yesterday, he came back with his answer (see below) which he manages to stuff with a pile of confused and jumbled arguments that convey profound intellectual ignorance and are riven with a host of embarrassing contradictions. But one thing was for sure. Gilad Atzmon would not be appearing on Jay s show. Why? Because, above…more
