CIVILIANS KIDNAPPED, JOURNALIST STRIP-SEARCHED IN IOF SWEEPS

Several Palestinians, including a journalist, were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in abduction sweeps launched at predawn Sunday.

Overnight, the Israeli army claimed responsibility for the abduction of four Palestinians on account of their involvement in anti-occupation events.

The campaign targeted three Palestinians from Jenin’s northern town of al-Jalama and another from the southern West Bank province of al-Khalil.

A PIC reporter, said the IOF soldiers rolled into al-Jalama at around 3 a.m. and wreaked havoc on civilian homes before they kidnapped three Palestinians, two among whom aged 21 and the third in his early 30s.

Palestinian journalist Raed Abu Rmeila, working for B’Tselem watchdog, was arrested by the occupation soldiers from southern al-Khalil and transferred to an Israeli detention center, where he had been aggressively attacked and strip-searched. He was released sometime later.

The attack on Abu Rmeila has not been the first of its kind. He had been subjected to several such assaults while covering Israeli violations against the Palestinians in the Old City of al-Khalil. Last Thursday, he survived gunshots fired by an Israeli soldier overnight.

Meanwhile, reporting from Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank, a PIC news correspondent said the IOF kidnapped five Palestinian young men in a predawn raid on the city.

The list of detainees included Mohamed Mo’men Khalaf, his cousin Mohamed Ma’moun, and Ibrahim Hamamra, all kidnapped from their family homes in Husan village, west of Bethlehem.

At the same time, 27-year-old Palestinian youth Assid al-Wardian, from Bethlehem, was transferred to administrative detention, with neither charge nor trial, just a couple of days after he was arrested by the IOF. His health has reportedly gone downhill as a result of a heart attack sustained one month ago in the Palestinian Authority (PA) lock-ups.

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
