Members of a Semitic people inhabiting the Arabian peninsula or other countries of the Middle East and North Africa. The term may be used with reference to ancient, medieval, or modern ethnic or cultural groups. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
A federation of seven states on the southeast portion of the Arabian peninsula: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Qaiwain. In 1820 a treaty of peace was concluded between Great Britain and native rulers. During the 19th century the rulers agreed to suppression of the slave trade and restriction of foreign relations to Great Britain. The Trucial Council was established in 1952 and defense treaties with Great Britain terminated. In 1971 an independent six-member federation was formed, with Ras al-Khaimah joining the federation in 1972. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1250)
A historical and cultural entity dispersed across a wide geographical area under the administrative, intellectual, social, and cultural domination of the Arab empire. The Arab world, under the impetus of Islam, by the eighth century A.D., extended from Arabia in the Middle East to all of northern Africa, southern Spain, Sardinia, and Sicily. Close contact was maintained with Greek and Jewish culture. While the principal service of the Arabs to medicine was the preservation of Greek culture, the Arabs themselves were the originators of algebra, chemistry, geology, and many of the refinements of civilization.

A sultanate on the southeast coast of the Arabian peninsula. Its capital is Masqat. Before the 16th century it was ruled by independent emirs but was captured and controlled by the Portuguese 1508-1648. In 1741 it was recovered by a descendent of Yemen's imam. After its decline in the 19th century, it became virtually a political and economic dependency within the British Government of India, retaining close ties with Great Britain by treaty from 1939 to 1970 when it achieved autonomy. The name was recorded by Pliny in the 1st century A.D. as Omana, said to be derived from the founder of the state, Oman ben Ibrahim al-Khalil.

Mutation and haplotype studies of familial Mediterranean fever reveal new ancestral relationships and evidence for a high carrier frequency with reduced penetrance in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. (1/471)

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a recessive disorder characterized by episodes of fever with serositis or synovitis. The FMF gene (MEFV) was cloned recently, and four missense mutations were identified. Here we present data from non-Ashkenazi Jewish and Arab patients in whom we had not originally found mutations and from a new, more ethnically diverse panel. Among 90 symptomatic mutation-positive individuals, 11 mutations accounted for 79% of carrier chromosomes. Of the two mutations that are novel, one alters the same residue (680) as a previously known mutation, and the other (P369S) is located in exon 3. Consistent with another recent report, the E148Q mutation was observed in patients of several ethnicities and on multiple microsatellite haplotypes, but haplotype data indicate an ancestral relationships between non-Jewish Italian and Ashkenazi Jewish patients with FMF and other affected populations. Among approximately 200 anonymous Ashkenazi Jewish DNA samples, the MEFV carrier frequency was 21%, with E148Q the most common mutation. Several lines of evidence indicate reduced penetrance among Ashkenazi Jews, especially for E148Q, P369S, and K695R. Nevertheless, E148Q helps account for recessive inheritance in an Ashkenazi family previously reported as an unusual case of dominantly inherited FMF. The presence of three frequent MEFV mutations in multiple Mediterranean populations strongly suggests a heterozygote advantage in this geographic region.  (+info)

Ethnicity, nationality and health care accessibility in Kuwait: a study of hospital emergency room users. (2/471)

In mid-1994, non-Kuwaiti expatriates constituted 61.7% of the total population of Kuwait (1.75 million). Despite this numerical majority, non-Kuwaitis exist as a social minority. Non-Kuwaitis may be grouped into three broad categories along ethnic/nationality lines into Bidoon (without nationality), Arabs, and Asians. The objective of this paper was to compare the relative accessibility of the various groups to health care services in Kuwait. The study is based on data collected as part of a survey of 2184 Emergency Room (ER) users in January-February 1993. All patients attending the hospital ERs between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm were interviewed about their reasons for coming to the ER instead of going to the primary health care (PHC) centres, as required. The major reason given was low accessibility of the PHCs. Compared to Kuwaiti nationals, 92% of whom were registered at the PHC centres, only 62% of the Arabs and 39% of the Asians were registered. Multiple logistic regression of the factors in registration indicated that nationality was the most important reason for lack of registration, with Asians only about one-quarter as likely to be registered as Kuwaitis. Also, people who had been in Kuwait for shorter durations (< 5 years) were less likely to be registered than the Kuwaiti nationals or expatriates who had been here for 10 years or longer. In the absence of registration at the PHC centre, the civil identification card (ID) may be used as a valid means to enter the health system. Among the Arabs and Asians, 22% and 29% did not have a civil ID card. Thus, for many expatriates, the hospital ER, which does not provide the necessary follow-up care is often the only source of health care available.  (+info)

The human platelet alphaIIb gene is not closely linked to its integrin partner beta3. (3/471)

alphaIIbb3 integrin is a heterodimeric receptor facilitating platelet aggregation. Both genes are on chromosome 17q21.32. Intergenic distance between them has been reported to be 125 to 260 kilobasepairs (kb) by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) genomic analysis, suggesting that they may be regulated coordinately during megakaryopoiesis. In contrast, other studies suggest these genes are greater than 2.0 megabasepairs (mb) apart. Because of the potential biological implications of having these two megakaryocytic-specific genes contiguous, we attempted to resolve this discrepancy. Taking advantage of large kindreds with mutations in either alphaIIb or beta3, we have developed a genetic linkage map between the thyroid receptor hormone-1 gene (THRA1) and beta3 as follows: cen-THRA1-BRCA1-D17S579/alphaIIb-beta3-qte r, with a distance of 1.3 centiMorgans (cM) between alphaIIb and beta3 and the two genes being oriented in the same direction. PFGE genomic and YAC clone analysis showed that the beta3 gene is distal and >/=365 kb upstream of alphaIIb. Additional restriction mapping shows alphaIIb is linked to the erythrocyte band 3 (EPB3) gene, and beta3 to the homeobox HOX2b gene. Analysis of alphaIIb(+)-BAC and P1 clones confirm that the EPB3 gene is approximately 110 kb downstream of the alphaIIb gene. Sequencing the region surrounding the human alphaIIb locus showed the Granulin gene approximately 18 kb downstream to alphaIIb, and the KIAA0553 gene approximately 5.7 kb upstream. This organization is conserved in the murine sequence. These studies show that alphaIIb and beta3 are not closely linked, with alphaIIb flanked by nonmegakaryocytic genes, and imply that they are unlikely to share common regulatory domains during megakaryopoiesis.  (+info)

Primary hyperoxaluria type I: a model for multiple mutations in a monogenic disease within a distinct ethnic group. (4/471)

Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 is an autosomal recessive inherited metabolic disease in which excessive oxalates are formed by the liver and excreted by the kidneys, causing a wide spectrum of phenotypes ranging from renal failure in infancy to mere renal stones in late adulthood. Mutations in the AGXT gene, encoding the liver-specific enzyme alanine:glyoxylate aminotransferase, are responsible for the disease. Seven mutations were detected in eight families in Israel. Four of these mutations are novel and three occur in children living in single-clan villages. The mutations are scattered along various exons (1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10), and on different alleles comprising at least five different haplotypes. All but one of the mutations are in a homozygous pattern, reflecting the high rate of consanguinity in our patient population. Two affected brothers are homozygous for two different mutations expressed on the same allele. The patients comprise a distinct ethnic group (Israeli Arabs) residing in a confined geographic area. These results, which are supported by previous data, suggest for the first time that the phenomenon of multiple mutations in a relatively closed isolate is common and almost exclusive to the Israeli-Arab population. Potential mechanisms including selective advantage to heterozygotes, digenic inheritance, and the recent emergence of multiple mutations are discussed.  (+info)

Giardia lamblia carriage in Israeli Bedouin infants: risk factors and consequences. (5/471)

Giardiasis is a common protozoan infection, with varying clinical manifestations. We investigated the associations between Giardia lamblia carriage and environmental, family, illness, and growth characteristics. Bedouin infants (n=234) were followed from birth to age 18-23 months. At monthly home visits, stool samples were obtained, history of illness was determined, and an environmental assessment was done. The comparisons presented are between 4 groups defined by length of carriage of G. lamblia. Study children had a mean+/-SD of 4.1+/-2.9 diarrhea episodes. No illness, environmental, or family characteristics were associated with length of carriage. Significant differences were found in weight-for-age and weight-for-height z scores between the never-positive-for-G. lamblia group and all other carriage groups combined. Faltering growth was shown to be subsequent to G. lamblia infection rather than preceding it. Our findings confirm that G. lamblia carriage is not associated with diarrhea. However, the effect on growth deserves further investigation.  (+info)

Acute otitis media caused by antibiotic-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae in southern Israel: implication for immunizing with conjugate vaccines. (6/471)

The potential coverage of antibiotic-resistant pneumococci causing acute otitis media (AOM) by 7-, 9-, and 11-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccines was studied in southern Israel. A total of 876 cases of pneumococcal AOM were studied in the context of various clinical conditions. Of the isolates, 68% were resistant to >/=1 drug, 61% were resistant to penicillin, and 13% were resistant to >/=3 antibiotic classes. Antibiotic resistance and coverage by the various candidates were age and population dependent and were higher among those with a complicated clinical course, as indicated by recent antibiotic use and recurrence of AOM. The results suggest that, if efficacious, the conjugate pneumococcal vaccines can substantially reduce the occurrence of pneumococcal AOM in general and complicated pneumococcal AOM in particular.  (+info)

Candidate locus for a nuclear modifier gene for maternally inherited deafness. (7/471)

Maternally inherited deafness associated with the A1555G mutation in the mitochondrial 12S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene appears to require additional environmental or genetic changes for phenotypic expression. Aminoglycosides have been identified as one such environmental factor. In one large Arab-Israeli pedigree with congenital hearing loss in some of the family members with the A1555G mutation and with no exposure to aminoglycosides, biochemical evidence has suggested the role of nuclear modifier gene(s), but a genomewide search has indicated the absence of a single major locus having such an effect. Thus it has been concluded that the penetrance of the mitochondrial mutation appears to depend on additive effects of several nuclear genes. We have now investigated 10 multiplex Spanish and Italian families with 35 members with the A1555G mutation and sensorineural deafness. Parametric analysis of a genomewide screen again failed to identify significant evidence for linkage to a single autosomal locus. However, nonparametric analysis supported the role of the chromosomal region around marker D8S277. The combined maximized allele-sharing LOD score of 3.1 in Arab-Israeli/Spanish/Italian families represents a highly suggestive linkage result. We suggest that this region should be considered a candidate for containing the first human nuclear modifier gene for a mitochondrial DNA disorder. The locus operates in Arab-Israeli, Spanish, and Italian families, resulting in the deafness phenotype on a background of the mitochondrial A1555G mutation. No obvious candidate genes are located in this region.  (+info)

The impact of new immigrants from the former Soviet Union on the severity of coronary angiographic findings in a public hospital in Israel. (8/471)

BACKGROUND: The arrival of 610,000 new immigrants to Israel from the former Soviet republics accounted for 58% of the population growth in the early 1990's. OBJECTIVE: To compare the coronary angiographic findings and risk factors between the new immigrants and local Jewish and Arab patients in this era of cost containment. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 550 consecutive patients--314 Jews, 95 new immigrants and 141 Arabs--were catheterized and analyzed during a 5 month period in 1995. Of this group 403 were males (73%). The mean age was 63.6 +/- 10.2 years among new immigrants, 62.4 +/- 9.4 among Jews, and 55.1 +/- 10.9 among Arabs (P < 0.05). Immigrants, including those under age 60, had the highest prevalence of multivessel disease (88.7%). Arabs had a high prevalence of single vessel disease (34.6%) and a low prevalence of multivessel (65.4%) and left main coronary disease (5.6%). Age, gender, risk factors and ethnic origin in descending order were determinants of the extent of coronary angiographic disease as revealed by multiple regression analysis. CONCLUSION: New immigrants had the most extensive angiographic coronary involvement, while Arab patients were younger and had less severe coronary artery disease. More intensive risk factor modification may have a major impact on disease progression particularly in the new immigrant subgroup.  (+info)

Since the beginning of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories in 1967, over 700,000 Palestinians have been detained by Israel. This forms approximately 20% of the total Palestinian population in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). Considering the fact that the majority of those detained are male, the number of Palestinians detained forms approximately 40% of the total male Palestinian population in the OPT.
The book studies the experience of the Palestinian Muslim Brothers (MB) in GS in the 1949-1967 period, and the emergence of the Palestinian MB movement, and its expansion to include the Palestinians in the Arab countries, except for Jordan. The first chapter is an introductory one that talks about the Palestinian MB and the Arab environment during that period. It depicts the general conditions of the Palestinian scene and the MB movement and its role in the 1948 war. Chapter two discusses the Palestinian MB movement in GS during the 1949-1956 period, while chapter three covers that movement during the 1957-1967 period and its restructuring to include the Palestinian MB in the Arab countries except Jordan. In addition to the establishment of the movement in GS, chapter three explains the activities in three countries: Egypt, Kuwait and Syria. As for chapter four, it focuses on the MB military action during the 1949-1956 period, highlighting its leading role in Palestinian resistance. The last ...
In this volume, editor Michael Suleiman brings together 21 prominent scholars from a wide range of perspectives -- including anthropology, economics, history, law, literature and culture, political science, and sociology -- to take a close look at the status of Arabs in North America. Topics range from the career of Arab American singer, dancer, and storyteller Wadeeha Atiyeh to a historical examination of Arab Americans and Zionism. The contributors discuss in Detroit, a group of well-educated Jordanian men, and the Shia Muslims -- to illustrate the range of Arab emigre experience. More broadly, they examine Arab American identity, political activism, and attempts by Arab immigrants to achieve respect and recognition in their new homes. They address both the present situation for Arab Americans and prospects for their future ...
Posted on 09/13/2011 10:13:34 AM PDT by AfricanChristian. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has captivated many Arabs with his tough talk against Israel, but voices at home and abroad question his drive to carve out a leadership role for Turkey in an Arab world once under the Ottoman imperial thumb. A Palestinian child crying in Gaza wrenches a mothers heart in Ankara, Erdogan told the Arab League in Cairo on Tuesday, using language calculated to delight Arab masses. His message of how Turks and Arabs twang to the same emotions would have seemed alien to a previous Turkey, friendly with its U.S. military ally, keen to join the European Union and disdainful of a backward Middle East on its doorstep. The so-called Turkish model has fascinated Arabs for several years, although no Arab country has emulated its mix of secular democracy, Islamist leadership and economic success. Yet Turkeys role is uncertain in a fluid region in which popular revolts are jolting many Arab nations, including some of ...
Following Fridays capture of four of the six prisoners who escaped from the Gilboa Israeli prison last week, Palestinians throughout the West Bank held marches and rallies in solidarity with the prisoners, who they term freedom fighters for the cause of Palestinian liberation.. Outside of Gilboa Prison, dozens of supporters gathered with bullhorns and noisemakers, hoping to be heard by the prisoners as they were transferred. They chanted in support of the Palestinian prisoners.. Hundreds of Palestinians marched through the streets of Ramallah on Saturday evening, chanting slogans in support of the heroism of the six prisoners who managed to escape through a tunnel that they dug with spoons.. Qaddura Faris, the head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), spoke at the rally, noting that Israeli authorities are now cracking down on all Palestinian prisoners, and that the prisoners are extremely vulnerable right now. He called on Palestinians to continue to engage in protest to pressure ...
Academics for Bush (and his wars): Fouad Ajami Analyzes the Arab Natives for You. He has one of his usual pieces in the Wall Street Journal (thanks John and Walter). It is really your typical Fouad Ajami (and recently his obedient imitator `Abdur-Rahman Ar-Rashids) style: that, look at me, how civilized I am, and how uncivilized Arabs are. Why cant Arabs be civilized like me. Do you not respect me and reward me for being such a civilized guy? It is really sad how uncivilized Arabs are, etc. First he starts by telling you that The remarkable thing about the terror in Iraq is the silence with which it is greeted in other Arab lands. That is not really true. I have, I think, more extensive access to Arab media, and follow Arab opinions in print, and through TV broadcasts through my SuperDish and the other offerings on Globecast satellite TV, and consider myself a very close watcher of Arab public opinion, not through their jokes only and not through what a few handful Syrian writers in ...

April 28 was designated as a Day of Rage across the Occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip. As about 1,500 Palestinian prisoners entered the second week of the mass hunger strike, this is a day for all Palestinians to show that they are in solidarity with the prisoners.. The Day of Rage was called for by the Fatah movement to show Palestinian opposition to the excessive practices of the Israeli occupation, particularly those of the Israel Prison Service, according to a statement.. The strike on Thursday 27 April and the Day of Rage on Friday 28 April have both unified the Palestinian people, Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, secretary general of the Palestinian National Initiative, told Palestine Monitor at a protest in the village of Rafat near Ramallah. What we see here today and in at least 16 other places in the West Bank are popular uprising and resistance. In my opinion, these are instruments to pressure Israel to respond to the Palestinian prisoners demands based on basic human ...
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity.

Of course, the PCBS, having for years grossly inflated Palestinian demographics as a political weapon in the Arab conflict with Israel, is an organization greatly lacking in credibility, to put it mildly. As Michael Rubin neatly summarized in Commentary, the PCBS isnt allowed to report Palestinian emigration, double-counts Jerusalem (which is also counted by Israel), and has made revisions at the request of the Palestinian leadership when the population in Jerusalem, for example, was found to have declined. The error today may exceed one million people throughout areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority.. More importantly, if we wanted to ask the PCBS how many Palestinians there were, well, wed ask them. What Id like to know, is how it is possible for Israeli intelligence agencies, which can remotely hack Syrian air defense systems, to not know whether there are 2.5 million Palestinians in the West Bank, as Palestinians claim, or more like 1.5 million, as asserted by reputable, ...
Ref:79/2017. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) expresses its deep concern that Augusta Victoria Hospital (al-Mutala) in occupied Jerusalem stopped receiving the Gaza Strip patients referred for treatment due to accumulating debts owed by the Palestinian Ministry of Health. Thus, PCHR calls upon the Palestinian Ministry of Health to pay off immediately the accumulating financial dues for al-Motala Hospital. PCHR also warns that the Palestinian backboned organizations in occupied Jerusalem would collapse after the Palestinian Government withheld funds and payments of the financial dues at the time the Israeli authorities intensify its policies to create a Jewish majority in Jerusalem and paralyze and ruin the work of its institutions, which provide basic services to all Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.. According to information obtained by PCHRs fieldworker, on Saturday, 21 October 2017, Gaza Strips patients referred for treatment in al-Mutala Hospital were surprised ...

Arab leaders ended their annual summit Wednesday with no new initiatives for peace with Israel. The summit, held in Algeria, coincided with the 60th anniversary of the Arab League. The summit rejected Jordans plan to normalise relations with Israel by instead sticking to the 2002 peace plan. That plan promised to normalise relations only after an Israeli withdrawal from occupied territories, the creation of a Palestinian state, and the settlement of Palestinian refugees. The summit announced the creation of an Arab Parliament to be based in the Syrian capital of Damascus. It will contain four members from each of the 22 Arab League states. Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi, the longest serving Arab leader at the meeting, caused tensions by telling the Palestinian delegation he thought both Palestinians and Israelis are stupid. He also reiterated his call for a single state solution, saying the solution I think is to have a single state. We cannot have two states. He also addressed terrorism, ...
The two-year intifada and Israels response largely explain the economic desperation of the Palestinians, formerly one of the most prosperous of Arab communities. Israeli curfews after terrorist attacks, plus restrictions on Palestinian workers entering Israel, cost al-Frahim his job and contact with Israelis he had worked with for more than 20 years. The current situation is a far cry from the years of relative peace after the 1993 Oslo accords, when the Palestinian economy flourished and standards of living rose. According to U.S. government reports, the Palestinian economy grew at a brisk 7 percent annually. The turnaround was underscored this week by Peter Hansen, the commissioner general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, who appealed for $94 million to be spent on food aid, repairing homes damaged in the fighting and creating temporary jobs in the West Bank and Gaza.

Mashrou Leila perform at Londons Barbican in 2017. Ali Matar produces Arab-themed musicals that start in their run in Londons West End before going on tour in the Middle East - most recently Broken Wings, based on Khalil Gibrans eponymous 1912 poetic novel, which will be playing at the Beiteddine Festival in Lebanon this July following a run at Londons Theatre Royal Haymarket last year. He says the Arab Spring is one of the big reasons artists from the Middle East feel the need to relay messages with their music, including through social media. He also credits it with creating an interest among non-Arab audiences in the capital.. One of the most visible and important expressions of contemporary Arab arts & culture in London is Shubbak Festival, the fifth edition of which is currently underway. Over two weeks, 150 events across film, theatre, literature, and visual arts take over the city.. London is immensely well-connected with the Arab region. Arab artists and Arab culture have ...
I wouldnt mind swapping hostile Arab areas in Israel for annexing much of Judea and Samaria. The catch of course is the Arabs will never accept an arrangement that would divest Israel of a hostile Arab population and which leaves Israel with more Jews and more secure borders. That is not the point of pushing for a Palestinian reichlet. The point is its a way station towards Israels eventual destruction. It doesnt need to come all at once. All the Arabs are asking now for is a down payment and they can make more demands later. At no point will the Arabs agree to ever end the conflict. If Israels leaders are so stupid as to agree, it would become G-d forbid, a self-fulfilling prophecy. Or perhaps Israels leaders do not want to leave the state to real Jews - such as yourself, Carl. They can always retire abroad after the dirty work is done.. ...
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) has reported that Israeli soldiers shot, on Thursday evening, six young Palestinian men with rubber-coated steel bullets and concussion grenades, including one who suffered an eye injury.. The PRCS stated that its medics provided treatment to six Palestinians, including four who were rushed to hospitals in the occupied city.. It added that one of the wounded Palestinians was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his eye, another with a similar bullet in his leg, and one in the shoulder, in addition to fourth Palestinian who suffered burns from the concussion grenades.. Two other Palestinians suffered cuts and bruises, and received the needed treatment by Red Crescent medics.. The soldiers also stopped and searched many young men, and interrogated them while inspecting their ID cards.. The incidents took place after the soldiers assaulted many Palestinians who were sitting in Bab al-Amoud area following evening prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and ...
Chabin uncritically quotes Daoud Kuttab who claims Palestinians in East Jerusalem pay the same national and municipal taxes as Jews in West Jerusalem but receive a fraction of the services. A visit to these neighborhoods Kuttab says, Show clearly a huge disparity. USA Today fails to ask Kuttab why differences exist. CAMERA previously has noted that disparities between Jewish and Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem or Israeli Jewish and nearby Israeli Arab towns are sometimes the result of higher rates of Arab tax avoidance or failure to pay for municipal services and/or even accepting services from the Jewish state. In eastern Jerusalem some such instances may reflect an intention not to accept the legitimacy of Israel or reluctance or refusal to have any involvement with municipal politics (East Jerusalem: Setting the Record Straight, Nov. 21, 2013 ...

International Journal of Psychology 21 (1-4): 445-62.. Author: Raija-Leena Punamäki. Abstract: Psychological responses and mental health of 174 Palestinian women living in the occupied West-Bank and the Gaza Strip were studied through a stress model. Thirty-five Palestinian women living in Israel proper who had not been exposed to military occupation were interviewed as a comparison group. The stress process studied consists of womens appraisal of threat and the importance of the stressors in their lives, the estimation of their own resources to cope with stress, actual coping modes, and mental health outcomes. Women living under military occupation tended to appraise their environment as highly threatening and their experiences as strain-producing. At the same time they believed they had sufficient assets, especially ...

Arab Leaders Facing Consequences of Their Own Follies. Should the global community pity or ridicule the Arab leaders for engineering their own pitfalls of self-destruction? Life and wisdom are narrated by compassion and positive moving stories of human peace and harmony. The cruel rivalries forging sectarian bloodbath at Aleppo, Damascus, Baghdad, Mosul, and Yemen make no sense. Had they believed in God, humanity and purpose of life with tangible accountability, the Earth could have been a better place for all to co-exist peacefully. Viewing the perpetuated moral, sectarian and economic and political disintegration overshadowing the Arab Middle East anarchy turned into insanity overwhelms the daily reports of massive deaths, and destructions. Post 9/11, the American leadership tried to reconstruct the Arab political landscape by multiple configuration of animosities and intrigues to make the Arab leaders fight against one another. The mindless Arab leaders followed the George Bush dictum to stir ...
The Israeli municipality ordered a Palestinian family from the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukabir to demolish their own home to avoid heavy fines.

a previous version of this blog Sad Word of the Day: Politicide was published first on Sep 4, 2003). It was almost five years ago when cruising through a Books etc bookshop I finally found a word I had been looking to invent myself for quite some time.. In fact, on the one hand I know from several first-hand sources, plus plenty of newspaper reports and analyses, of the systematic destruction of the Palestinian identity by Israeli policies. On the other hand, I do not think this can be described as a Palestinian Genocide.. Unless there is a massive media cover-up including, the situation in Palestine simply does not reflect the common definition of Genocide. For example, there is no killing of Palestinian people for the mere fact of them being Palestinians. The risk is that to talk about a Palestinian Genocide means to demean both the victims of genocide (a word that would be watered down), and the Palestinians (whose situation would be completely misunderstood, with the cause fought not ...
Israel may as of next week annex the Jordan Valley and all 150 Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, i.e. 30pc of the West Bank, while the Palestinians would have four years to win an independent state and a capital in East Jerusalem. That is the substance of President Donald Trumps vision for an Israel-Palestinian peace as he presented it at the White House on Tuesday, Jan. 28, alongside PM Binyamin Netanyahu, in a striking historic event - even for the critics of its content. The prime minister stated I agree to negotiate with the Palestinians on the basis of your plan, because, he said, unlike all previous peace initiatives, this one strikes a realistic balance between Israels security needs with recognition of Biblical sites as the bedrock of our Jewish heritage, while also understanding and addressing Palestinian aspirations. All previous plans required Israels withdrawal from the Jordan Valley, its vital eastern frontier ...
GENEVA (2 October 2018) - The killing and wounding of more Palestinian protesters at the Gaza fence by the Israeli security forces is an ongoing affront to human rights and human dignity, said a UN human rights expert.. The deaths of seven more participants in the Gaza demonstrations, and the wounding of more than 200 others, this past Friday indicates that the Israeli security forces are not heeding the international criticism of their use of lethal fire against Palestinian demonstrators, who appear to pose no credible threat to Israeli security forces, said Michael Lynk, the UN Special Rapporteur for the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory. Two of the Palestinians killed on Friday were boys aged 11 and 14. One Gaza-based human rights group, Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, estimates that 163 of the injured demonstrators were shot with live fire.. Since the start of the Great March of Return on 30 March, more than 150 Palestinians have been killed during ...

68 percent of the Jewish population in Israel fears the possibility that Israeli Arabs will begin a popular rebellion, while 63 percent do not enter Arab communities in Israel, according to a new poll issued this week by Haifa University. Meanwhile, 64.4 percent of Israeli Jewish citizens fear that the Arab citizens endanger national security because of their high birth rate, while 83.1 percent fear Israeli Arabs support of the Palestinians struggle and 73 percent believe that most of the Arab citizens will be more loyal to the state of Palestine than to the state of Israel. Clearly the Israeli Fifth Column is hard at work trying to tear the country apart -- and Iran is more than happy to help. ...

Violation: a decision to demolish 21 Palestinian residences. Location: Yatma - Nablus. Date: December 26, 2013.. Perpetrators: the so-called Organization and Construction Committee.. Victims: 29 Palestinian families, a total of 146 people.. Details:. Since the Israeli Occupation of the West Bank in 1967, the Israelis have been depriving the Palestinians from their right to adequate housing as well as their right to expand and develop. For that purpose, the Israelis set a number of rules and regulations for construction and expansion in areas classified C according to Oslo rendering construction for Palestinians in those areas next to impossible.. On December 26, 2013, the Israeli Supreme Court handed one of the families lawyers a memoir saying that the Court overruled the families appeal in regard to the demolishing orders issued 4 years earlier. The Court suggested that each family appeal solely before December 27, 2012 with paying an amount of 2500 ILS as Court fees.. Table 1: ...
By George S. Hishmeh A few months after arriving in the US in 1968 and joining the staff of the Chicago Sun-Times, I was invited to speak at an Arab-American community gala dinner. My punchline that evening was an appeal to the community that their children study journalism and get more involved in the political process there.. Knowing that many did not trust their English or shied away because of the prevalent stereotyping, I recommended two things: Instead of writing long-winded letters to the newspapers, as some I know have done, limit them to two or three paragraphs. Better still, cut out negative news items or commentaries and mail them to the paper with the words erroneous or nonsense written on them in red ink and follow this up with a request for a meeting with the editors. A large number of such letters would at least be impressive, if not persuasive. I have also urged Arab-Americans to volunteer in political and election campaigns or, better still, seek internships in the offices ...
In December 2009, 122,000 Arab Christians lived in Israel, as Arab citizens of Israel, out of a total of 151,700 Christian citizens.[43] According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, on the eve of Christmas 2013, there were approximately 161,000 Christians in Israel, about 2 percent of the general population in Israel. 80% of the Christians are of Arabic roots[44] with smaller Christian communities of ethnic Russians, Greeks, Armenians, Maronites, Ukrainians and Assyrians.[45] The majority of Arab Christians in Israel belong to the Greek Orthodox Church, with a sizable minority belonging to the Greek Catholic (Melkite) and Latin Churches. Other denominations are the Anglicans who have their cathedral church in the contested territory of East Jerusalem. Baptists in Israel are concentrated in the north of the country, and have four churches in the Nazareth area, and a seminary. The Arab Christians in Israel divide in political opinions-some self-identify as Palestinian Christians, some emphasize ...
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. After three consecutive days of numerous acts of settler violence in Tel Rumeida, Hebron, the IDF and Police are doing very little to stop or arrest settlers who violently oppose the removal of settlers from the illegally occupied Palestinian wholesale market in Hebrons Old City. Some soldiers do nothing while the settlers attack Palestinians or the Human Rights Workers (HRWs) who live in Tel Rumeida to support them, whereas other soldiers do intervene at different levels. This disparity shows that the IDF has not issued clear orders to protect the Palestinian or international population of Tel Rumeida. During an attack a police car drove by, and HRWs asked for help, the police said we will not defend you. It is not our job. You choose to be on the street, so this is your own responsibility. HRWs explained that Palestinian families were constantly threatened, insulted, hit and had their homes and shops attacked and that this is why they must remain on the street to ...
Contact: In Atlanta, Deborah Hakes, [email protected] ATLANTA...On the occasion of Palestinian Prisoners Day, April 17, The Carter Center expresses concern for the treatment of 4,750 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, which contravenes international law and human rights norms. The prisoners, 106 of whom have been detained more than 20 years, include democratically elected members of the Palestinian legislature, such as Marwan Barghouti, Ahmad Saadat, and Ahmad At-Toun, as well as 235 children. The fate of hunger striking prisoners is of special concern. Samer Issawi has been on hunger strike for some 270 days, and his health has gravely deteriorated. Clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters have occurred over detainee issues. Should one of the strikers die, wider violence could erupt.. The thousands of prisoners held by Israel are a persistent cause of resentment for the Palestinian people, said former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Israels treatment of Palestinian ...

JERUSALEM, Nov. 7 (JTA) - Israel´s Knesset has voted to lift the parliamentary immunity of an Israeli Arab legislator. The vote is likely to exacerbate already strained relations between the country´s Jewish and Arab communities. Wednesday´s vote - after a Knesset committee recommended the step on Monday - came after the attorney general, Elyakim Rubinstein, filed two separate indictments against Azmi Beshara. The first was over a call Beshara issued during a speech in Syria earlier this year for the Arab world to unite against the warmongering government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. The speech was made in front of sworn enemies of the Jewish state such as Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The second indictment was for visits Beshara arranged of Israeli Arabs to Syria without the approval of Israeli authorities. After Wednesday´s vote, Beshara said he had fallen victim to extremist nationalist movements in the Knesset. Beshara denied the incitement charge, saying he had never ...
Summary. Israeli occupation forces (IOF) continued to violate Palestinians human rights and commit crimes against civilians and their properties, conducting raids into Palestinian cities without regard to the state of emergency declared across the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) since 06 March 2020, in the efforts put forward to combat the spread of coronavirus. IOF raids are conducted without proper attention to prevention and safety standards to mitigate the risk of transmitting coronavirus to Palestinian territory, as the virus is widespread throughout Israel. PCHR is concerned that Israeli raids undermine preventive measures adopted by the government. Meanwhile, settlers backed up by IOF continued to seize more civilian property and attack civilians and their property.. This week, PCHR documented 98 violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law (IHL) by IOF and settlers in the oPt. As the state of emergency enters its 5th week, as well as the extreme ...
This article evaluates Arab public opinion with the Arab Opinion Index by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies (ACRPS) in Doha, Qatar. The Index covers 12 Arab countries with 85 percent of the population of the entire Arab world. The data was weighted by UNDP population figures in order to arrive at conclusions about the totality of opinions in the Arab states. There is indeed overwhelming support for democracy and change in the region, but, at the same time, the data imply real basic weaknesses of civil society support for the structures of democracy.. Ever since the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya in 2011, the question has arisen as to how big the real support for democracy in the Arab world is. Recent events in Egypt have led many observers to think that instead of an Arab Spring, one should rather talk about an Arab Winter.[1] Thousands of reports and opinion pieces in the worlds media and scholarly articles have been published on the issue, but hard facts on mass ...

Middle East Monitor / December 30, 2020. The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) said Arab and Israeli indicators show that the majority of Arabs reject normalisation with Israel and view the Palestinian issue as the core of the conflict in the region, despite the recent deals concluded between Tel Aviv and a number of Arab countries.. In a new report, MADAR said over the last two years, Israel and its new allies have used Arab social media influencers especially in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia to call for normalisation with the occupation state.. MADAR said in addition to social media influencers, journalists and even clerics have gone as far as attacking Palestinians and questioning the status of Palestine, including Al-Aqsa Mosque, amid silence from the ruling regimes.. Meanwhile, the report notes, Israeli official social media accounts have celebrated such posts and re-shared them to create a general feeling that the Arab people accept and welcome normalisation and ...

While the entire world is busy in its efforts to combat terrorism, the Israeli government is exploiting the situation by further increasing its unilateral steps and creating facts on the ground that are aggravating Palestinians aspiration for peace and justice.. On 24 September, 2001, the Israeli government issued a military order numbered 01/01/s (see document in Arabic page1, page2) through which 80,000 Dunums of Palestinian land (1.4% of the total area of the West Bank) in the North of the West Bank were declared as closed military areas.

JERUSALEM (AP) - A 17-year-old Palestinian died on Monday, two months after he was wounded in the neck by Israeli gunfire during clashes near the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian health authorities said. The shooting occurred during one of numerous clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces during the 11-day war in May between Israel and Hamas, the fourth conflict since the militant group seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.. A statement from Palestinian health authorities said Youssef Nawaf died after a May 14 gunshot wound in the neck damaged his spinal cord, leaving him in critical condition.. At least 26 Palestinians were killed in the West Bank during the May fighting, according to the United Nations. At least 254 people were killed in Gaza, including 67 children and 39 women, while 12 civilians, including two children and one soldier, were killed in Israel.. Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 war. The Palestinians seek the area as the ...
Sundras, a Palestinian girl from the West Bank village of Anata, was attending a clinic funded by the Palestine Childrens Relief Fund, an Ohio-based charity that treats about 2,000 critically ill children in the Palestinian territories each year. [...] even if Sundras needs cardiac surgery, the future of the childrens charity program has been thrown into doubt by U.S. sanctions against the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority banning all contact with Palestinian hospitals and Ministry of Health employees. Under new guidelines issued April 12 by the Treasury Departments Office of Foreign Asset Control, U.S. citizens and organizations must cease all transactions with the Palestinian government, its ministries and institutions operating under their control. The Treasury directive noted that Hamas is classified as a terrorist entity, and it ordered U.S. citizens to conclude all contacts with the Palestinian Authority by Friday, unless specifically permitted to continue. U.S. persons are prohibited from
Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, WHO Director-General, announced today that the health situation of people in the occupied Palestinian territory is deteriorating as a result of the escalation of the conflict compounded by further border closures and curfews throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip since March 2002.
While many parts of the world transition to mandatory lockdown, Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian territory face uncertainty about how they will be protected from the spread of COVID-19. This blog will focus on the circumstances of three particularly vulnerable population groups: i) the population of Gaza, ii) child and adult detainees in Israeli prisons and detention facilities, and iii) families and individuals displaced by home demolitions.. On 19 March 2020, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights released a statement on Israels legal duty, as the occupying power, to ensure that Palestinians are protected as far as possible from the spread of COVID-19. UN Special Rapporteur Michael Lynk asserted, The legal duty, anchored in Article 56 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, requires that Israel, the occupying power, must ensure that all the necessary preventive means available to it are utilised to combat the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics. We note that an ...
By Nir Hasson. 15 Apr 2020 - Clinic in Silwan raided, activists arrested because kits were provided by the Palestinian Authority.. Israeli police raided a coronavirus testing clinic in the East Jerusalem Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan and arrested its organizers on Tuesday [14 Apr] night because the clinic was operated in collaboration with the Palestinian Authority.. According to the clinics managers, there is a shortage of coronavirus tests in Silwan, where doctors say there are 40 confirmed cases and where overcrowded living conditions could lead to a rapid spread of the virus.. The clinic was opened in a hall at one of the local mosques. It was closed on Tuesday night because to the end-of-Passover curfew, but police officers nonetheless arrived, questioned neighbors and arrested four activists who were involved in setting up the clinic.. The coronavirus tests were meant to be processed by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. However, Israel prohibits any PA activity in Jerusalem ...
To begin with, in their negotiations with Israel, Egypt and Jordan never asserted any territorial claims against the area of sovereign Israel. Unlike many Palestinians today, the Egyptians and the Jordanians harbor no aspirations to make Israeli cities, such as Haifa or Jaffa, part of their respective states. And whereas there are no Egyptian or Jordanian national minorities living within Israel, many Arab citizens of Israel identify themselves as Palestinian nationals. Operating among them are political, religious, and ideological forces dedicated to subverting the existence of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. In 2006, for example, representatives from the National Committee for the Heads of the Arab Local Authorities in Israel issued a document entitled The Future Vision of the Palestinian Arabs in Israel, which calls for the introduction of consensual democracy in Israel, in which both the Palestinian and the Jewish nations would partner to govern Israel jointly -- the ...
Madam President, Appalling events in Gaza and the occupied Palestinian territory have once again called this Council into Special Session. We have recently witnessed the most significant escalation in hostilities since 2014. According to figures verified by my Office, 242 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli Security Forces (the ISF) in strikes on Gaza, including 63 children. Thousands of others have been injured while it is estimated that over 74,000 Palestinians have been displaced. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, 28 Palestinians, including five children, were killed as of 24 May. At the same time, rockets launched by Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups killed 10 Israeli citizens and residents including two children, and forced thousands into shelters. This escalation was directly linked to protests and a heavy response from Israeli security forces first in East Jerusalem, then spreading to the entire occupied Palestinian territory and also within Israel. Two main issues ...
Palestine is not a state. Palestine does not have a single central government, it does not have an army, it does not have control over airspace and most of the territory it claims. In practice, the Palestinian Authority, is responsible for some of the civilian needs of the residents in the West Bank (and it does that very badly if you ask me). In the Gaza Strip, theres an alternative government run by Hamas Movement.. Other than that, no one is occupying Palestine. The territories claimed by the Palestinians were occupied by Israel from Egypt and Jordan. This happened in 1967 and there was no Palestinian entity at all at this time. Also, the UN Resolution 181 (II) from 1947, to establish arab state next to a jewish state in Palestine* was rejected by the Arabs (Palestinians as well).. *at that point, people may say basically Palestine exiested before, so I note that in fact, there was never an Independent Palestinian-Arab state before. Palestine was just a region that was controlled by ...

An interview with Jonathan Cook Five Books - 25 February 2014Interviewed by: Bethan Staton Outside of the Middle East, many people understand Palestine to mean the West Bank and Gaza, and Palestinians as the people living in these areas. But Palestinians who remained in Israel after the creation of the state in 1948 - when some 700,000 were displaced in the Nakba or catastrophe - now make up around 20% of Israels population. Could you explain a bit more about this community, and why it has been overlooked? The difficulty for Palestinians remaining in what becomes Israel after 1948 is that the Palestinian national movement develops in exile, in the occupied territories and the neighboring Arab states. Palestinians in Israel are excluded and shielded from these developments and left in what amounts to a political and social ghetto. Israel strictly circumscribes their understanding of who they are and anything to do with their history, heritage and culture. Israel controls the education system, for
The Chairman of the United Nations panel dealing with Palestinian rights today expressed hope that the positive momentum gained by Israels removal of settlements from the Gaza Strip and parts of the northern West Bank would be followed by similar steps in the rest of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and
Fact, Israeli Arabs are part of the great Arab nation and have no own unique national characteristics. This approach also relies on cultural similarity that exists between the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza Arabs residents of the Kingdom of Transjordan and Arabs in Egypt and other Arab countries. Fact, Azmi Bishara, a Palestinian, said: There is no Palestinian nation, has only Arab nation.. Fact, Judaism existed over 5000 years more than all another Religion.. Fact written in the Koran: Moses said to his people, my people, remember the grace inclined you God establish you prophets and doing you kings, and gives you had not given anyone in the Universe. My people, go to the holy land that wrote you God. Sura 5 20-21 … it is written for you in black and white in the Quran then why are you denying the truth that Israel was our lot before the Palestinians came here?. Fact, we Israelis want peace and condemn all attacks on civilians and certainly not deliberately kill women and ...
Overview: The government of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has two main objectives: to reverse the peace process and its achievements, and to maintain Israels control over all of historic Palestine. Sharons immediate goal, however, is forcing the Palestinian Authority (PA) to accept Israels cease-fire terms which would permit Israel to have a security role in the Palestinian territories. Aware of Israels intentions, the Palestinians rejected the amendments to the Tenet and Mitchell plans made by U.S. Middle East Envoy Anthony Zinni. The changes would legalize Israels military actions against the PA and the Palestinian people. The nature of the ongoing Israeli military operation and the U.S. administrations support for Israel has made it difficult to see a way out of the current bloodshed. The Israeli incursion in the West Bank is creating a dynamic that will be difficult to reverse. The Israeli government seems to not only want to weaken the PA, but to entirely eliminate its security ...
This approach, now adopted by the Russians, directly harms the processes toward regulating Israels ties with Arab and Muslim states, which are based upon common interests that are not impacted by the Palestinian nationalist idea. Russia has not sufficed with publishing its stance but has acted to openly enlist the support of prominent Arab states. So, for example, ahead of the Bahrain conference, the foreign ministers of both Russia and Egypt declared that both countries were in agreement on the need for a comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue. Egypt, however, sent its representatives to Bahrain. It, along with other leading countries in the region like Saudi Arabia, have a clear interest in developing the economy of the region and the Palestinian territories in particular. Both Riyadh and Cairo are interested in containing the Palestinian issue and silencing another local focal point that is getting in the way of regional development ...
JERUSALEM (AP) - A Jewish man killed during an eruption of Mideast violence has given new life to an Arab woman in bitter times. Yigal Yehoshua, 56, died May 17 after being pelted with rocks amid clashes between Arabs and Jews in Israel
In January 2012, in the midst of proceedings in the Israeli Supreme Court concerning the construction of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu established the Committee to Examine the State of Building in Judea and Samaria. On July 9, 2012, the Committee, headed by retired Supreme Court of Israel Justice Edmund Levy, published its report. The Levy report concludes that Israel is not an occupying power, but the sole sovereign over the Palestinian territory. The report reflects long-term Israeli policies and practices, but also contests them with numerous, far-reaching recommendations. Most importantly, the reports rationale calls upon states to evaluate their understanding of Israels legal status in the Palestinian territory.. Territorial Status in the Levy Report. The Levy report, which purports to conduct a legal analysis of the issues at hand, concludes in favor of the legality of Israels settlement project under both domestic and ...
JERUSALEM (JTA) - Following an autopsy, Palestinian and Israeli doctors issued differing reports on the cause of death of a Palestinian official following an altercation with Israeli security forces at a demonstration.. The autopsy on Ziad Abu Ein was carried out early Thursday at the forensics institute in Abu Dis in eastern Jerusalem. Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian doctors participated in the procedure.. A preliminary report issued by Israels Health Ministry said Abu Ein, 55, died of a heart attack from a preexisting heart condition brought on by stress. The preliminary findings will require verification after the results of the investigation and lab results are received, the ministry said.. Palestinian officials said the death was caused by the actions of Israeli troops, including being hit and inhaling large amounts of tear gas.. After hearing the results of the postmortem, the Palestinian government holds Israel fully responsible for the killing of Ziad Abu Ein, government spokesman ...
The decision by the UAE to establish diplomatic relations with Israel keeps a negotiated solution with Palestine on life support. There is no indication that forging relations with Israel will be more successful in nudging the Jewish state towards peace with Palestine on mutually acceptable terms than the failed formula of offering Arab recognition in exchange for peace was.. Like it or not, the United Arab Emirates may have done the Palestinians a favor by forging diplomatic ties with Israel. On the face of it, the agreement deprives the Palestinians of a perceived trump card: Arab recognition in return for Israeli withdrawal from territories occupied during the 1967 Middle East war even if it has not proven to be much of an asset.. Historically, forging diplomatic relations with the Jewish state has not been a magic wand to resolve a seemingly intractable dispute.. The carrot of recognition has not helped solve the Palestinians problem 72 years after they were first displaced by Israeli ...

There has been a tendency in several reports to portray the prevailing situation (in the occupied territories) as more of a conflict between two equal sides -- the Israeli and Palestinian -- rather than actually one of occupation, says Ambassador Riyad Mansour, in a letter to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.. The skewed reporting, including certain language usage that overlooks the existence of this occupation, is unacceptable, he says, virtually accusing the U.N. Secretariat of trying to undermine the Palestinians by its misreporting.. Mansours letter to the secretary-general also says: For sometime now, the delegation of Palestine has been troubled by misrepresentations in several U.N. reports in the recent period, including some issued by the secretary-general, that have had the effect of skewing the context of the situation in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.. He points out that Palestinian territories are under an occupying power, namely Israel, which is ...
