(August 17) – He introduces himself as Abu Nabil, but Arabic is not his mother tongue. Hounding people and threatening them with murder is his business. It may be assumed that he gets a salary for this. He works with a team, armed with advanced technology for surveilling and locating people.

On February 25, Abu Nabil phoned Sweden, to the home of the family of Nada Kiswanson, a Palestinian attorney with dual Jordanian-Swedish citizenship, and warned the family that if Kiswanson did not leave her place of employment, they would never see her again. Continue reading

This day in 1945: On Holocaust Memorial Day

Millions of people throughout the world have died as a result of genocide and crimes against humanity. The address by the Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper to the Israeli Zionist Knesset on January 20, 2014 illustrates how crimes against humanity are being manipulated for an ulterior and self-serving political agenda, in his case to criminalize opposition to Zionism and Israeli state terrorism as “anti-semitism” – a hierarchy of crimes has been established. On Holocaust Memorial Day, January 27, 2009 Dr Hakim Adi, then Reader in the History of Africa and the African Diaspora at the University of Middlesex, gave a presentation at the African Caribbean Community Library, Battersea Library, in the London Borough of Wandsworth, United Kingdom. The meeting was part of the commemoration of this national day organised under the overall support of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, a national charity formed in 2005. January 27, the day of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army in 1945, is commemorated as Holocaust Memorial Day internationally.

August 26, 2015 marked the first anniversary of Israel’s offensive on the Gaza Strip, during which 2,219 Palestinians were killed. However, a large part of the story is left untold.

The majority of those killed lived in refugee camps in the Gaza Strip within a 30 mile (50 km) radius of their homes of origin. A total of 1,236 refugees were killed during the 2014 offensive, including at least 309 children. Continue reading

Amena Saleem Media Watch

(June 15) – There was nothing surprising about Israel finding itself not culpable for the killing of four boys on a Gaza beach in July last year, as it did in a military judgment released a few days ago.

Israel’s investigations into its own crimes aren’t known for delivering guilty verdicts. Continue reading
