The road map for peace in the Middle East has been jammed for years, with Jewish settlers given the "green light" to build settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

As Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland experiences, the traffic lights seem to favour some more than others.
Today is Martin Luther King's birthday. It is hard for me to remember today without remembering another. It was April, 1968. I was a student in Paris but the university was closed due to the student riots and so I'd left the upheaval of Paris and gone to Israel to visit family in Tel Aviv. When my family fled Russia in the 1880s, escaping the pogroms, a portion went to Palestine where they had lived for almost a century. I was 19 but already I saw what problems the Middle East faced. Israel had just annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem and despite my family's enthusiasm, even I knew that this was going to be a huge mistake. I left them to travel around the country and had spent a night of danger and fear, too complicated to go into here, wandering through East Jerusalem until I landed early in the morning in a cafe. I was exhausted, confused, and frightened by the world. I'd just ordered coffee and an omelette when a young man sitting across from me picked up an English newspaper and I read th ...
Who Should Be Blamed For Muslim Terrorism? By Andre Vltchek A hundred years ago, it would have been unimaginable to have a pair of Muslim men enter a cafe or a public transportation vehicle, and then blow themselves up, killing dozens. Or to massacre the staff of a satirical magazine in Paris! Things like that were simply not done. When you read the memoirs of Edward Said, or talk to old men and women in East Jerusalem, it becomes clear that the great part of Palestinian society used to be absolutely secular and moderate. It cared about life, culture, and even fashion, more than about religious dogmas. The same could be said about many other Muslim societies, including those of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt and Indonesia. Old photos speak for themselves. That is why it is so important to study old images again and again, carefully. Islam is not only a religion; it is also an enormous culture, one of the greatest on Earth, which has enriched our humanity with some of the paramount scientific and architectural a ...

How was 2014 for Palestinian Children? - a report by Defence for Children International Palestine: "2014 will be remembered for the images it broadcast to the world from the Gaza Strip. These images depicted children fleeing from heavy bombing and shelling by Israeli forces, taking shelter with their families in crowded UN schools, or convalescing in Gaza’s overstretched hospitals. Among the most tragic were those that showed the bodies of four young boys, aged between 7 and 11, killed by a projectile fired by the Israeli navy, as they played on a Gaza beach during the offensive. But the suffering of Palestinian children was not limited to the 50-day offensive on the Gaza Strip, nor was it limited to the geographical confines of the 25 square mile coastal enclave. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, it was Palestinian children who continued to pay the heaviest price for the ongoing Israeli military occupation." Read the full report here:
We witnessed the inmates running the asylum when Australia was installed to chair the UN in order to prevent the international recognition of the State of Palestine based on the borders prior to the Six Day War, with East Jerusalem as its capital, a proposition supported by the majority members of UN states but repeatedly thwarted by the Anglo-Zionist cabal. PLO Executive Committee member, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, strongly denounced the UN Security Council vote in which the resolution to end the Israeli occupation failed to pass: “The UN Security Council vote is outrageously shameful. It is ironic that while the United Nations designated 2014 as the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the resolution failed to pass as an indication of a failure of will by some members of the international community. Furthermore, all the articles of the resolution are consistent with declared American policy, international law, UN resolutions, and the requirements of peace. The extent to which the U.S. ...

Israel to build 12 factories in industrial zone of illegal Israeli settlement of Mishor Adumim in East Jerusalem
More illegal settlements approved by Israel Israeli authorities has given final approval to the construction of 380 new illegal settler homes in two areas of occupied East Jerusalem, a local official said. "The municipal commission has given construction permits for 307 homes in Ramot and 73 in Har Homa," Yosef Pepe Alalu, a Jerusalem city councillor with the opposition Meretz party, told the AFP news agency on Wednesday. Haaretz newspaper reported that final building permits can now be issued and once that has been done, construction may begin. The collapse of US-brokered peace talks, Israel's war last summer in the Gaza Strip against Hamas, and continued Israeli settlement construction in East Jerusalem have added to the distrust between Israel and Palestine. About 200,000 Jewish Israelis live in settlement areas like Ramot that ring East Jerusalem to help cement Israeli control. Settlement building in the territories occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War is considered illegal under internatio ...
Obama Mulling Sanctions On Israel The Obama administration is refusing to discuss reports that emerged early Thursday claiming that the White House is considering imposing sanctions on Israel for continuing construction on Jewish homes in Jerusalem. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf dodged several questions on Thursday when confronted with reports that the administration had held secret internal meetings to discuss taking action against Israel for its ongoing building in East Jerusalem. The classified meetings were reportedly held several weeks ago and included officials from both the State Department and White House, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, which first reported on the meetings. The possibility of sanctioning Israel for its ongoing construction sends a signal that the Obama administration is willing to go further in its denunciations of Israel then any previous White House. At the same time, the White House is vigorously pushing Congress against passing new sanctions on Iran. When ...

But the threat of the draft seems to have been enough to jolt the international community into action. France stepped into the fray last month and, with Britain and Germany, began discussing options for a separate resolution. Diplomatic flurry Keen to head off a diplomatic crisis, Kerry held a flurry of meetings this week with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian negotiators and European ministers. The United States was concerned that a UN resolution could play into the hands of Israeli hardliners as the country heads toward elections in March and suggested it could be delayed. A US veto risks angering key Arab allies, including partners in the US-led coalition carrying out air strikes against the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq. The latest round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, shepherded by Kerry, collapsed in April amid mutual recriminations. This summer's 50-day war in Gaza followed, and tensions have boiled over in the West Bank and East Jerusalem with a series of deadly at ...

ISIL IS A ISRAELI MERCENARY ARMY. AN OUTSPOKEN AMERICAN AUTHOR AND ISLAMIC STUDIES EXPERT SAYS THE TAKFIRI ISIL TERRORIST GROUP IS ADVANCING THE AGENDA OF THE ISRAELI REGIME. Why hasn't ISIL attacked Israel yet ? Well now you know why... Because Israel is one of their biggest covert sponsors ! An outspoken American author and Islamic studies expert says the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group is advancing the agenda of the Israeli regime. Dr. Kevin Barrett told Press TV from Madison that the ISIL is a “mercenary army,” which has been organized by the Zionists. The ISIL has been fighting on behalf of Zionism in order to “destabilize Syria” and “cripple the anti-Israeli resistance” across the region, Barrett said. He also said that the ISIL ideology is similar to the Israeli forces committing crimes against the Palestinians in East Jerusalem al-Quds and elsewhere across the occupied Palestinian territories. He strongly criticized the “Zionist-dominated” Western media for demonizing Muslims by attri ...
Just over 2000 years ago Jesus said that the nation of Israel would be destroyed. In the year 70 A.D. the Roman empire did just that. The book of Ezekiel goes further to say that although the Jewish people would be spread to the corners of the Earth, they would retain their identity. Ezekiel also tells us that before the last days, because a great calamity would befall the Jewish people, they would be given their nation once more. This was fulfilled after the holocaust, when in 1948, Israel regained statehood. But the bible does not stop there in foretelling the events to come. We also learn that Israels arab neighbors would together "conspire to cut them off as a nation." The Bible goes on to say Israel would not only survive, but capture land from all her attackers. In 1967 in what would come to be know as the Six Day War, Israel was attacked by Egypt, Jordan, and Syria.
