IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY October 7th: Flying the Flag of Solidarity in Kufr Qaddoum

On Friday October 7th the weekly demonstration against Israeli occupation and closure of the main road from Palestinians was held again in occupied West Bank’s Kufr Qaddoum.

This flag was being flown among the protesters. Solidarity binds people when an occupier’s illegal Wall tries to separate them.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY October 7th: Seeking normalization with Israel

Yahya Moussa, a Hamas leader, told Al-Monitor, “I think that the PA’s postponement of the submittal of the draft resolution stems from its fear of being subject to Israeli and US sanctions, as was the case following the PA’s application for membership in the United Nations on Nov. 30, 2012, despite US and Israeli opposition…

Moussa was surprised about the pressure exerted since April by the Arab quartet committee, including Egypt, Morocco and Jordan, on the PA to postpone the submission of the draft resolution to the Security Council until after the US elections — allegedly to give more time for French efforts to make progress on the peace process. “The Arab Group seeks to normalize relations with Israel, whether secretly or openly, and is not backing the Palestinian people,” he said.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY October 5th: Engulfed in Flames

“Around 7 p.m., an Israeli soldier on the other side of the border fence knelt down and fired a flare cartridge directly at Abd al-Rahman[15],” an eyewitness told DCIP.

The flare hit the boy in the forehead above his left eye, setting him on fire and killing him.

The flare, which remained lodged in his forehead, fractured his skull.
According to the witness, al-Dabagh was approximately 15 to 20 meters from the border fence when he fell to the ground engulfed in flames.

IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY October 5th: NOT WORTH REPORTING

Israel’s occupation forces attack on the besieged coastal enclave of Gaza Strip on Wednesday October 5th consisted of at least thirty different missiles and shells being fired at least seven different locations.

In the eyes of the ‘Western’ politicians and media, this was not worth noticing. For example, that stalwart standard-bearer of Israel, BBC deigned from reporting it on it’s English language main news site.

Perhaps the BBC staff remembered a recent claim by Israel, barring the US journalist Abby Martin from Gaza, that only those journalists who don’t criticize Israel are really journalists but ‘Palestinian advocates’ – ‘real journalists’ only repeat what Israel claims or are silent.

IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY October 4th: Attack on Free Speech

We are asking individuals, politicians and organisations to support the IPSC in its legitimate campaign to promote BDS and defend Palestinian rights by condemning the account closures and calling on Bank of Ireland to reinstate our bank accounts. This is not only a direct attack on our ability to function as an organisation – but an attack on free speech and the ability of civil society groups to take effective action for justice.

Martin O’Quigley, treasurer of Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
