2 Palestinian journalists arrested by PA forces

TUBAS, (PIC)– The Palestinian Authority (PA) apparatuses on Wednesday kidnapped two journalists from the occupied West Bank provinces of Ramallah and Tubas. The PA General Intelligence officers in Tubas arrested the Palestinian journalist Zayd Abu Ara, 29, after summoning him for interrogation. Zayd’s father, Mustafa, said the PA intelligence arrested his son shortly after they spoke up to him by phone and summoned him for questioning. The family said efforts have been underway since the early morning hours to reach Zayd’s location. Zayd, a professional journalist, had been arrested by the PA on various past occasions on account of his work with the Quds Press International news agency. The PA General Intelligence forces further arrested the 24-year-old Palestinian photojournalist Ameer Abu Areim, working for the al-Aqsa TV Channel in Ramallah, Ameer’s wife Juman Abu Arafa said on Facebook.  Eyewitnesses said the PA officers stopped a vehicle driven by Ameer in Birzeit and forced him out at gunpoint. Journalist Tareq Abu Zayd has, meanwhile, been kept in the PA penitentiaries in Nablus for the 16th day running. Journalist Layla Hamarsha said Abu Zayd will be brought before court on Thursday after the judge turned down five appeals to release him on a bail.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.

Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
