Israel sentences 15-year-old child to 6 years in jail

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– An Israeli court on Sunday sentenced a 15-year-old Palestinian child for six years and a half in jail and a fine of 26,000 shekels on allegations of carrying out an anti-occupation stabbing. The Israeli court issued the sentence against Mu’awya Alkam, 15, on charges that he attempted to stab an Israeli security guard.  A court hearing is expected to be held on July 17 to validate the sentence. Both Mu’awya and Ali Alkam were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces after they were shot by an Israeli light rail guard in Occupied Jerusalem. Ali was hit with three bullets and sustained critical wounds following the shooting. According to Abdullah Alkam, the chairman of the popular campaign to release Palestinian children in Israeli jails, Mu’awya is being held in the Megiddo lock-up while Ali is incarcerated at a closed school in Beit Naquba. Both children have reportedly been subjected to harsh psycho-physical torture and strip-beating in Israeli detention. The occupation authorities have been frequently delaying court hearings for the two minors until they reach the legal age for trials, the activist added.

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
