ISRAELI FORCES CARRY OUT MULTIPLE RAIDS ACROSS WEST BANK, DETAIN 11 PALESTINIANS

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces detained at least 11 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, raiding multiple areas across the occupied Palestinian territory.

 
Locals said that Israeli forces raided the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem and detained Muhammad Jamal al-Azza in Bethlehem city and Wael Amjad al-Khatib in the neighboring town of Beit Jala, which was confirmed by the Israeli army.
 
An Israeli army spokesperson also told Ma’an that three Palestinians were detained in the village of al-Rashayida south of Bethlehem.
 
In the town of Beit Sahour east of Bethlehem, Israeli forces raided a Palestinian home and interrogated the family, without detaining anyone.
 
Locals said that Israeli forces raided Beit Sahour at 3:15 a.m. and surrounded the three-floor building, where Issam Qumsiyeh, 57, his brother Sami, 60, and their two families live.
 
The Qumsiyeh family said they woke up to the sound of explosions and discovered Israeli forces blasting open the exterior door to the building.
 
Dozens of soldiers broke into the house, forcing both families into one room where they were thoroughly interrogated, while the building was being searched and ransacked.
 
Israeli forces also cut off the telephone and the internet during the half-hour raid.
 
Members of the family told Ma’an that “soldiers had a map (of the building) and knew detailed information about the family, as if the interrogation was only to confirmation what they already knew.”
 
Israeli forces also raided the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah and detained Ali Ahmad Khattab in the town of Beit Sira, Hassan Ribhi Nafe from the town of Nilin, and 17-year-old Murad Suleiman Atta from Deir Abu Mashaal, according to local sources and confirmed by the Israeli army.
 
According to Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri, two Palestinian youths from the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus were also detained overnight at a military checkpoint near Tulkarem, claiming Israeli forces found an M-16 rifle in their position after searching their vehicle.

Israeli forces also detained 23-year-old Mahmoud Muhammad al-Hroub the village of Ibziq in the northern Jordan Valley region of the occupied West Bank when a tractor and private vehicle were also confiscated.
 
Local sources also said that Israeli forces detained 15-year-old Bassam Shukri al-Qunbar from Jabal al-Mukabbir. Israeli forces had raided the occupied east Jerusalem neighborhood early Wednesday to seal a home with cement, as a punitive action taken against the family of slain Palestinian Fadi al-Qunbar.
 
Local sources mentioned that a Palestinian was also detained in the northern Israeli town of Sandala, who was identified as Sheikh Firas al-Omari, a member of the Freedoms and Prisoners Committee.
 
According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 6,500 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of January, 53 of whom were women and 300 of whom minors. Some 420 Palestinians were detained throughout the month of February alone — including 70 minors and 22 women and girls.

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
