‘Israeli’ Occupation uses 101 types of Apartheid permits to restrict Palestinian movement.

Romance as Resistance!

The ‘Israeli’ Occupation invented 101 different types of permits to restrict the movement of Palestinians, whether within the Occupied West Bank cities, towns and villages. Or between West Bank and Occupied Palestine 1948 territories ‘Israel’ or with the outside world ….. According to an occupation agency document of which Haaretz [an’ Israeli’ newspaper] obtained a copy.

Haaretz: …. ‘’The most common permits are those allowing Palestinians to work in ‘Israel’, or in Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Over the decades, however, the permit regimen has grown into a vast, triple-digit bureaucracy.

There are separate permits for worshipers who attend Friday prayers on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and for clerics working at the site; for unspecified clergy and for church employees. Medical permits differentiate between physicians and ambulance drivers, and between “medical emergency staff” and “medical staff in the seam zone,” meaning the border between ‘Israel’ and the West Bank. There is a permit for escorting a patient in an ambulance and one for simply escorting a patient.

There are separate permits for traveling to a wedding in the West Bank or traveling to a wedding in ‘Israel’, and also for going to ‘Israel’ for a funeral, a work meeting, or a court hearing.

The ‘separation fence, gave rise to an entirely new category of permits, for farmers cut off from their fields. Thus, for instance, there is a permit for a “farmer in the seam zone,” not to be confused with the permit for a “permanent farmer in the seam zone.”

Human rights organizations have challenged the permit regime on various grounds.

According to a report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, international agencies operating in the West Bank waste an estimated 20 percent of their working days on permits from the ‘Civil Administration’ – applying for them, renewing them and sorting out problems.

The checkpoint-monitoring organization Machsom Watch claims that the Shin Bet security service uses the permit regime to recruit informers. Palestinians whose permit requests are rejected “for security reasons” are often invited to meetings with Shin Bet agents, who then offer “assistance” in obtaining the desired permits in exchange for information’’….

Kuwaiti parties dismiss Trump allegation kingdom will normalise ties with Zionist entity ‘Israel’ soon

Kuwait will not forget the blood of the martyrs, the sufferings of mothers, children, prisoners and the wounded, and the sacrifices of generations throughout the decades of Zionist oppression and aggression against Palestine and al-Quds al-Sharif,

Press Tv interviews, Saeb Shaath, author and Middle East political Expert and Ali Al-Faraj, a political activist. Kuwait likely to be next Arab state to normalise ties with Israel: Trump Trump announced the likely normalisation of bilateral ties between Kuwait and ‘Israel’ at a White House press briefing Friday hours after meeting with the son of Kuwait’s ruling emir.

The White House said the president had awarded the US Legion of Merit, Degree Chief Commander, to Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, adding that it was the first time the honour has been given since 1991. The emir’s eldest son, Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, accepted the award on behalf of his father at a private ceremony with Trump on Friday. Trump’s remarks were a stark contrast from what the Kuwaiti government had said last month.

A local newspaper cited a Kuwaiti official as saying that the Persian Gulf state would “be the last” to sign a normalization agreement with Israel. “Our stance on ‘Israel’ has not changed following the UAE normalization agreement, and we will be the last to normalize relations,” the al-Qabas newspaper cited the unnamed senior official as stating.

“The Kuwaiti position is consistent with its decades-old foreign policy approach in support of the Palestinian cause, as it is the premier Arab issue,” it added, quoting the official. A number of Kuwaiti political parties have roundly condemned US President Donald Trump’s claim that the Persian Gulf kingdom may soon normalise relations with Israel after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed normalisation agreements with the Tel Aviv regime at the White House earlier this week.

The factions, in a joint statement released on Sunday, called upon the Kuwaiti government to issue an official statement in rejection of Trump’s allegation. “Kuwait will not forget the blood of the martyrs, the sufferings of mothers, children, prisoners and the wounded, and the sacrifices of generations throughout the decades of Zionist oppression and aggression against Palestine and al-Quds al-Sharif,” the statement added. They also urged the legislature to expedite the passing of a law, which would criminalise any normalisation with the Israeli regime and demand that the lawmakers protect the Arab country against any potential bullying and pressure by Washington.

Bahrain joining UAE’s act of treason in recognising the Zionist entity ‘Israel’

Palestinians have unanimously censured the UAE-Zionist entity ‘Israel’ peace deal, which runs counter to a long-standing Arab consensus

SaebPress

Trump has announced the normalisation of bilateral ties between Bahrain and the Zionist entity ‘Israel’, the second Arab state to join a deal widely censured as a betrayal of the Palestinian nation and the Palestinian cause.

Trump said in a tweet on Friday that Bahrain had agreed to join the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in striking what he called a peace deal to normalise relations with Tel Aviv.

Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2020 The White House said the US president had tweeted out the news after speaking by phone to Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump also attached to a separate tweet a joint statement, whereby the three had agreed on and expressed commitment to “the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain.

” They also boasted the deal in the statement as a “historic breakthrough,” and claimed the agreement was aimed at increasing “stability, security, and prosperity in the region.”

The Palestinians have unanimously censured the UAE-Zionist entity ‘Israel’ peace deal, which runs counter to a long-standing Arab consensus that any normalisation of ties with the Tel Aviv regime has to come in the context of the settlement of the Zionist entity’s ‘Israel’-Palestinian conflict and the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state.

The UAE-Zionist entity ‘Israel’ agreement has also sparked protests and condemnations from Muslim and other Arab countries, who described it as an act of treason against the Palestinians.
