Gisteren overleed, in Nice, George Moustaki, in de jaren dertig geboren als Yussef Mustacchi in de enorme joods-griekse gemeenschap van Alexandrië, waar er nu nog 23 van over zijn (zie: http://www.hsje.org/Jewslegacy.htm ) Hij zingt in 'Ma liberté': 'ik ben vertrokken uit mijn land / zette vrienden aan de kant / om je vertrouwen te winnen.'

Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria were shocked to see a Nazi flag waving over a mosque in the Palestinian village of Beit Omar near Hebron on Monday.
The flag was visible to thousands of Israeli citizens who pass by this mosque en route from Hebron to work. Uri Arnon, who saw the flag, told Tazpit News Agency, “I felt we were going back 75 years, losing our hold on the land. The Arabs no longer feel the need to hide their murderous tendencies, announcing out loud that they wish to destroy us.”
Aryeh Savir of the Tazpit News Agency reported, “The IDF’s Coordination Office of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) latest response is that they are waiting for members of the Palestinian electricity company to come in and remove it because it is on power lines.” Still, regardless whether the flag stays up or not, the fact that a Nazi flag was waved over a Palestinian mosque is an uncanny reminder of how certain Palestinian nationalists have demonstrated overt support for Nazism, thus demonstrating once again that they have no intention of peacefully coexisting with Israel.
In fact, according to the Walid Shoebat Foundation, which is run by a Palestinian named Walid Shoebat who used to be a PLO terrorist yet has in recent years become an advocate for Israel, claims that such Palestinian actions should not surprise any of us. He says that the fact that a Nazi flag would be waved over a Palestinian mosque “should be common knowledge but is continuously ignored – Islamic fundamentalists and Nazis are like-minded. That a Nazi flag would be flying over a Palestinian village near a Mosque should actually be less shocking than the fact that so many are shocked by it.”

Virtually all international media has ignored recent news from France, where a court issued a ruling related, among other things, to the legality of Israel's occupation. As noted in a March 13, 2013 article published by the French media outlet Dreuz, the Versailles Court of Appeal ruled that the Israeli occupation of the territories claimed by the Palestinians is in fact legal.
The judicial decision put an end to a long process initiated by the French-Palestinian Solidarity Association (ASPF) and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) represented by Mahmoud Abbas.
Also, in February 2007, both the ASPF and the PLO denounced the French companies Veolia Transport and Alstom Transport SA for building the Jerusalem tram that runs through the Eastern part of the city, which the Palestinians claim as theirs. Regarding the occupation, the PLO and ASPF appealed using existing articles from the Geneva Convention and both The Hague Conventions of 1907 and 1954. But the Court of Versailles specifies that those articles are not applicable. Firstly, these agreements apply to States, and neither the Palestinian Authority nor the PLO are such. Secondly, both Convention articles refer to “High Contracting Parties”, and neither the PLO nor the PA ever signed those Conventions.
As for the transport companies, the French court – which does allow for appeals – ruled that Israel has the right to build in the occupied territories. Article 43 of the Fourth Hague Convention of 1907 specifies that "the authority of the legitimate power having in fact passed into the hands of the occupant, the latter shall take all the measures in his power to restore, and ensure, as far as possible, public order and safety, while respecting, unless absolutely prevented, the laws in force in the country." The Court fined the AFPS and the OLP 30,000 Euros payable each to Alstom, Alstom Transport and Veolia Transport.
It is interesting to note the mainstream media’s willingness to report promptly when it comes to Tribunals that condemn Israel or when proven Israel detractors accuse the Jewish State of legal violations. However, when a legal court rules in favor of Israel, abiding by International Law rather than personal opinion, the media silence is quite staggering. It seems there’s no room for facts, just for opinions and mere assumptions.

Palestinian sources reported that on Tuesday night, IDF forces arrested three members of the Palestinian security forces in the vicinity of Nablus.
The three men were involved in a 2011 shooting incident in which Ben-Yosef Livnat, nephew of Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat, was killed.
According to reports, following the incident, which took place at Joseph’s Tomb, a Palestinian court sentenced the three to one year in prison, and they were recently released.
The Defense Ministry announced Ben Yoseph a terror victim a month after his death. The decision was made following the army’s announcement that the officers who fired were not in any immediate danger.
According to the military’s initial investigation, 19 Jewish worshippers arrived at Joseph’s Tomb in three vehicles, ignored the Palestinian police’s order to stop at an improvised roadblock. The Palestinian police officers then opened fire at them.
Former Sports and Culture Minister Limor Livnat, who is Ben-Yosef’s aunt, eulogized the victim saying: “My brother’s son was murdered by a terrorist masked as a Palestinian police officer for no more reason than his wish to pray; he was innocent.”
