IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY for September 24th: Hunger-striker Malik al-Qadi is free

Released hunger-striker Malik al-Qadi(25) arrives to hospital in occupied Palestine’s Ramallah after released by occupier Israel.

After being sentenced twice to imprisonment without charge this year by the Israeli occupation, al-Qadi started a hunger-strike on July 16th which led to victory on September 22nd.

At this moment of triumph for al-Qadi we must remember the many hunger-strikers who have been betrayed by Israel, like Samer Issawi and Sami Janazrah, who won their hunger-strikes only to be betrayed by the occupier, who has taken a ‘revenge’ against the entire Issawi family for Samer’s victory.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY September 24th: Netanyahu “hopes” no attempt to establish Palestine in UN

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he “hoped” US President Barack Obama would not seek to establish a Palestinian state at the United Nations on Saturday…

“If you’re asking if he spoke to me about this, the answer is no,” The Jerusalem Post quoted Netanyahu as saying. “If you’re asking me if I am hoping that he won’t do this, the answer is yes.”

FACEBOOK HELPING ISRAEL TO SILENCE THE VOICES FROM OCCUPIED PALESTINE

Facebook has disabled accounts of eight Palestinian editors of @qudsn and @ShehabAgency, which have an audience of millions.

Show them support and please consider liking them, if you haven’t already done so:

@ShehabAgency
https://www.facebook.com/ShehabAgency.MainPage/?fref=ts

Previously Facebook closed down Shehab News Agency’s page for an extended period after complaints from a Zionist, who later openly bragged about it on Twitter.

Facebook is, of course, not alone in this. Last year one phone call from Israel’s PM Netanyahu to France’s ‘president’ Francois Hollande resulted in the latter ordering Eutelsat to drop satellite broadcasts for Palestinian Al-Aqsa TV.

Naturally this troubled none of the ‘champions’ of ‘press freedom’ in the so-called ‘West’, just like the closure of Palestinian TV and radio satellites on both sides of the Green Line have resulted with total silence from those in the ‘West’ who pretend to be champions of free speech and free press.

Freedom of the press is for the ‘Western’ friends of Apartheid Israel not a noble ideal, but something that can be discarded and trampled upon when needed – like when social media has offered a way for voices of occupied Palestine to reach the wider world bypassing the traditional media crewed by Israel’s loyal henchmen.

Support the voices of Palestine in social media, don’t let Israel build another illegal Wall in cyberspace to stop them from being heard.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY September 23rd: Response to Khaled al-Khalidi

Yousef Farhat, the general director of the public administration for preaching and guidance in the Ministry of Religious Affairs, fiercely attacked Khalidi. He told Al-Monitor, “Calling for enacting an anti-blasphemy law is an intellectual scandal that brings us back to the medieval inquisition era in the 15th and 16th centuries, when people were persecuted and beheaded for their intellectual views. Today’s calls to confront blasphemy are an extension of IS’ ideology.”

He added, “Throughout history, Islam has witnessed numerous situations in which the right to disagree was admirably exercised but also witnessed unfair situations where differences of opinion were described as blasphemy. Some are trying to reproduce these unfair situations today by calling for an anti-blasphemy law.”

IMAGEN IPNOT DE HOY 23.09. – ESPARCIENDO EL RACISMO EN JERUSALÉN / IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY September 23rd: Spreading racism in Jerusalem

This is the excerpt for a placeholder post.

Cada jueves decenas de miembros del grupo anti-asimilación Lehava marchan en centro de Jerusalén, gritando consignas racistas contra los palestinos.

Each Thursday the notorious, racist ‘anti-miscegenation’ group Lehava marches in Jerusalem’s centre shouting racist slogans against the Palestinians.

Leaders of the group openly incite their followers and other extreme Zionists to act of violence against Palestinians and their activities are protected by the state of Israel, whose regime seems Lehava as just another tool in its occupation toolbag.

IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY for September 22nd: Olive Harvest Festival in Asira

This is the excerpt for a placeholder post.

Olive Harvest Festival in the village of Asira al-Qibliya in Nablus district of occupied West Bank.

The olive harvest season usually runs from mid-October to mid-November.

Asira al-Qibliya is a regular target of illegal Israeli settlers’ attacks especially during that time, as on it’s lands is built the illegal Israeli colony of Yitzhar which on many years has been recorded as the most violent towards Palestinians among all the illegal Israeli colonies in the occupied Palestinian territories.
