While the Zionist apartheid state continues the genocide against the people of Gaza and killed more than 10,000 people, the American imperialists that have provided the weapons and the aircraft to bomb women, old people, injured people and more than 3,500 children, is also sending a submarine carrying nuclear weapons and threatens Hezbollah and Iran if they dare to assist the people of Gaza and open a full military front. At the same time the darling of the American centrists Berny Sanders who falsely claims that he follows Eugene V. Debs opposes the ceasefire because Hamas wants to destroy the state of Israel.

Unlike this fake socialist, even the Queen of Jordan said in an interview to CNN according to Ynet: “After questioning the atrocities committed by Hamas in the Otef settlements, Rania was interviewed once more by CNN, and continued to attack Israel. “Being pro-Palestinian is not being anti-Semitic. Israel alone is responsible for its crimes,” said the Queen of Jordan. According to her, the opposition to a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip “justifies the killing of civilians. Queen Rania of Jordan was interviewed once again by CNN, after last month she cast doubt on the atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip and reports of children being slaughtered and their heads beheaded. This time too, Rania chose to attack Israel and the support she receives from US President Joe Biden. In the interview, Rania referred to anti-Semitism, saying that in recent years this accusation has been used to silence criticism against Israel. “Being pro-Palestinian is not being anti-Semitic. I want to absolutely and wholeheartedly condemn anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, but I also want to remind everyone that Israel does not represent all Jews around the world. Israel is a state, and is solely responsible for its own crimes.”Last week, US President Joe Biden questioned the death tolls published by the Hamas Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip. Rania told CNN that casting doubt on the American president is typical “Israeli propaganda”. The Queen also called for a ceasefire in Gaza, saying that the claims that a ceasefire will allow Hamas to carry out more attacks are claims that “support and justify” the killing of civilians” [1]

The Israeli government and the extreme right Minister of police Itamar ben Gvir are busy in a witch hunt of those that oppose the war crimes of Israel whether they are citizens of Israel or Palestinian residents of the West-Bank. Others like the Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu from Otzma Yehudit have called to throw an atomic bomb on Gaza. He is formally suspended but still he can vote in the meeting of the Zionist government.

Thus, while the Jewish settlers in the West-Bank attack and kill Palestinians and expel them from their lands in the West- Bank protected by the Zionist army, the same hooligans in uniforms arrested the heroine 22 years old Ahed Tamimi who said about the settlers that the Palestinians will kill them and drink their blood. According to the right-wing daily newspaper Jerusalem post, in an Instagram posts she wrote: “We are waiting for you in all the West Bank cities from Hebron to Jenin – we will slaughter you and you will say that what Hitler did to you was a joke

Her mother deny these allegation and said that some one else used her name as her
accounts are blocked.

Tamimi has gained prominence for her courage’s actions against the IDF and has been held by many as a national hero for West Bank Palestinians. Tamimi has become a symbol in the Palestinian struggle against Israeli oppression and became an honorary member of the Palestinian National Council in May 2018. In March 2018, Tamimi was convicted by the military kangaroo court on four counts of assaulting an IDF officer and soldier, incitement, and interference with IDF forces, and was sentenced to eight months in prison and eight months of probation. She was released on July 29, 2018.

Following her arrest, National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir posted on Facebook congratulating the IDF for arresting Tamimi. “Kudos to the IDF and the rest of the security forces who arrested the terrorist and ‘human rights activist’ Ehad Tamimi Manbi Saleh, who was previously convicted of attacking IDF soldiers and since the outbreak of the war has expressed sympathy and support for Hamas!” [2]
