Every year on May 15, the Palestinians always reminded of their old wounds that are still gaping until today. Precisely 69 years ago, on May 15, 1948, more than 750,000 residents of a state, must expelled from their own homeland. They no longer hold the status of Palestinian citizens but they referred to as Palestinian refugees, and that status still stays to this day. Nakba reminded us of the pain experienced by the Palestinian people at the time, they remained silent to see the Zionists demolished their homes, their property deprived, the garden and their fields were destroyed. Even their brothers became the victims of the Israeli occupation. They forced to flee from the land of their ancestral heritage. Seen from the historical side, the Nakba has brought three big events, firstly, the removal of Palestine word geographically and politically; secondly, the establishment of the state of Israel; and third, began the outbreak of the first Arab-Israeli war The ‘peak’ of the Palestinian tragedy itself could be said started from the Nakba. Because the Israeli Zionist forces at the year…

Resistance Behind Bars

Maybe for the public does not cross their minds, what else is the real counter-action that can be done directly by someone who is in jail. Perhaps it is because the bars are understood as symbols of barriers, including the struggle for rights and righteousness. Then came the perception: helplessness has already hit the prisoners in prison. However, the above perceptions are not generally accepted, especially for Palestinian prisoners. Amid difficulties, they still have a way to fight, despite the physical and psychic attacks of the Israeli armies that currently cause 210 prisoners to be killed and 1,200 people sick. In fact, amid the paralysis of many international organizations to stop Israeli atrocities, the prisoners stand tall against the collective injustice. They face all of that, by doing massive hunger strike. The hunger strike action is effectively inflaming solidarity and popular resistance, now almost three weeks apart, starting on April 17 coinciding with the Palestinian prisoner’s day. Spirit of resistance from hunger strike inflames the solidarity of Palestinians. Palestinians act. Day of rage action was held in across of the…

The Forgotten Prisoners

The struggle of the Palestinian people includes various lines of life, ranging from diplomacy on the political path to physical resistance that sacrifices body and soul. Most of them chose this last path to gain the real independence. They were arrested, imprisoned, tortured because of the struggle that had been done. aljazeera.net reported at least 1,000,000 times the arrests campaign conducted by Israel, since 1967. Palestinian Prisoners' Affairs Commission prisoners released, until 2017 there are 7,000 Palestinians held in 23 Israeli prisons. This number is stunning, because there is no more attention about it in international community. Palestinians view this as a big problem. Their family members arrested one by one, even including children and women. The source of the Palestinian site, alresalah.ps reported there are currently 58 women and 32 minors under arrest. As for male prisoners 4,430 people. 500 of them sentenced to life imprisonment and 600 others became administrative prisoners. The fate of administrative detentionsare even more pathetic. They arrested and detained by the state without trial. Administrative detention (AD) is a procedure that allows Israeli occupation…

Apartheid Wall Isolates The West Bank

The Israeli occupation was never satisfied with the territory they occupied in 1948. Because until now, the expansion of their colonies continued. In fact, such actions proved to violate international agreements that theyagreed. But that's the character of Israel, they always violate all the agreements, it is proof that they are entities that do not obey the rules. Not only that, the Israeli occupation seemed to have confidence, no party could stop anything they wanted. Even international organizations such as the United Nations unable to stand firm against Israel, they only condemn what Israel did. We couldsee from every Israeli military aggression against the Gaza Strip, the UN could notstop the attack, nor sentpeace troops to Gazato end the war, something that seems impossible. The construction of racist wall or the apartheid wall in the West Bank is one example of how racist Israeli occupiers, theyare also ignoring international lawsthrough UN resolutions no. 242. The apartheidwall is the designation of the wall that separates the West Bank from the occupied territories of Israel. Construction began in 2002 during the Zionist…

41 years of Palestinian Land Day

Every year, the Palestinian people always commemorate March 30 as Land Day. “Land” here is the residential land. Commemorating the Land Day means to commemorate the loss of their dwellings deprived by the Israeli occupation. The dark event occurred in 1976 ago, when the Israeli occupation authorities confiscated 21,000 hectares of land belonging to the Palestinian farmers. Palestinian citizens of Israel led protests and marches in communities of the northern Galilee to the southern Naqab (Negev). The actions were organized in response to Israeli state plans to expropriate over 21,000 hectares of land belonging to Palestinian villages in the Galilee. Israeli police forces fired on the crowds killing six and injuring around a hundred. Actually, 1976 was the climax of the expropriation of land by Israel since the beginning of the illegal colonization in 1948. In the period 1948-1976 there were approximately 1 million hectares of land belonging to Palestinians who have been deprived. The explosion of anger actually happened on March 30, 1976. Palestinian people did massive resistance without any command. They were very cohesive, even some historians called…
Some people may think, the arrogance of the Israeli occupation only affect the Palestinians who live in Gaza and West Bank, but in fact, it also affects those who live in the Israeli-occupied territories. It is the Palestinians who remained in Palestine 1948; designation for the Palestinian territories which occupied by Israel since 1948 until now. Aljazeera.net reported there are 1.4 million Palestinian Arabs, or about 20% of the 8,000,000 inhabitants in the occupied territories. Although under Israeli authorities, they still face mistreatment were made legally through the Israeli Law. In the past year there were 6 racist Laws agreed by the Israeli parliament, with this law, little by little they expelled and eliminated the Arab and Muslim identity of the occupied land. The first one is law to ban Palestinian Arabs to make an association, the purpose of this law is to narrow down their activities. Second, law a bill that lets it oust a sitting lawmaker – legislation that critics say targets Arab lawmakers deemed to be inciting against Israel’s interests, the expulsion requires a majority of 90…

Two-State Solution, is it a solution?

On last Tuesday (02/28/2017), French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development Jean-Marc Ayrault visited Indonesia. There was an appealing message conveyed by Jean in a press conference along with Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi. He said, there is a similar view between his country with Indonesia in terms of a solution for Palestine. Then he said "two-state solution" as the best solution to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. As reported by Arab news sites, Alwasat.ly. The issue of the two states as a solution to the Palestinian issue in fact has long been touted. But always ends in deadlock, because it is not easy to implement it in the field. Moreover, after when Donald Trump was elected as US president. The future of this solution is increasingly bleak, since Trump doubted the solution and opens another option that is likely benefit to Israel. It is undeniable, after declared victory in the US presidential election, Trump immediately reveals his side to the Israeli occupation. Starting from a promise to move the US embassy to the holy city of Al-Quds and acknowledge…
Exactly a week ago, Wednesday, February 22, 2017, various national media spread the news about the plane of Israeli PM. Benjamin Netanyahu to make detour around Indonesia to get to Australia. Israeli occupation leadership was forced to avoid the Indonesian airspace due consideration of the absence of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The average direct flight from Singapore to Sydney takes about eight and a half hours; according to the flight tracking site FlightAware, Netanyahu’s total flight time was just over 11 hours as his flight path dodged Indonesia’s airspace. Online media, merdeka.com, Wednesday (2/22) mentioned, El Al, Israel's national airline, which taking Netanyahu was forbidden to cross the territory of Muslim countries such as Indonesia and Pakistan. More added that recently Indonesia became one of the four countries that support UN resolution condemning illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Al-Quds. Certainly this becomes consideration alone for Netanyahu to avoid Indonesia. If we trace more, the reason Netanyahu’s plane to avoid Indonesian airspace cannot be separated from assertiveness of Indonesia against Israel. Indonesia does not have diplomatic…
