Sluiting workshop

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces conducted raids in multiple areas across the occupied West Bank before dawn on Tuesday, detaining at least eight Palestinians and shutting down a workshop that the Israeli army said was used to manufacture weapons.

Israeli soldiers stormed the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, and ransacked approximately 20 houses belonging to Palestinians who have previously been imprisoned by Israel.
Locals identified a number of former prisoners whose houses were raided as Fayiz Misk, Shadi Uweiwi, Mahmoud Yusri Uweiwi, Yahya Ismail Qawasmi, Raed Natsha, Rasmi Dufish, Hashim Abu Turki, Yaqoub Zaarir, Hisham Hmeidan Sharabati, Thaer Ziyad Fakhouri, Bilal Salhab, Anas Zghayyar, and Fadi Shawar.
Israeli soldiers briefly detained Fayiz Misk for a few hours before releasing him.
Sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces “violently” inspected the houses and “turned furniture upside down.”

Israeli forces also detained two brothers from the town of Husan west of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank, identified in a statement from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) as Ismat Amjad Hamamra, 28, and Muhannad Amjad Hamamra, 26.
An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the two were detained, and claimed they were “Hamas operatives.”
The PPS statement said that five Palestinians were detained in the village of Bartaa in the northern most district of Jenin, identified as Hamid Jamil al-Khatib and his brothers Mahir and Mujahid, in addition to Muatasim Aziz Qabaha, and Munis Marwan Qabaha.
Ali Salih Hithnawi was detained in Qabatiya in the Jenin district, according to PPS, and confirmed by the Israeli army spokesperson who claimed he was a Hamas operative.
The spokesperson added that Israeli forces seized “weapons manufacturing machines” at a metals workshop during a raid into the town of Jamain south of Nablus in the northern West Bank early Tuesday morning.
The workshop’s owner Mansour Majid Gheith told Ma’an that Israeli forces stormed Jamain and broke into his workshop after breaking open the main door.
The Israeli soldiers, he said, destroyed the contents of his workshop, before they notified him that it had been shut down by military order.
He said that the Israeli raid was carried out without any prior notice, and that the workshop was worth hundreds of thousands of Israeli shekels.
An Israeli spokesperson told Ma’an that a “illegal weapons and explosives manufacturing workshop” was uncovered, and that “more than one” machine was confiscated.

Israeli forces carry out raids across the occupied Palestinian territory on a near-nightly basis, with the UN recording an average of 95 weekly raids in the West Bank in 2016, and 73 weekly raids on average thus far in 2017.
The majority of raids are carried in cities, villages, and refugee camps located in Area A which should be under full Palestinian Authority control according to the Oslo agreements.
During a raid into the center of the Ramallah district early Monday morning, Israeli forces ambushed and killed a 31-year-old activist Basel al-Araj, after he had been on the run from Israeli authorities since last September.

Transcription made from The Miko's Speeches

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
