I am standing with UNRWA


لماذا غزة؟ Why Gaza?

President Trump has decided to cut funding to the U.N. agency that supports Palestinian refugees from $350 million in 2017 to $60 million.

I’m standing with UNRWA. I’m condemning this US Administration. My members of Congress are going to hear loud and clear “restore the funding for Palestinian refugees NOW!”. #FundUNRWA

Statement of Commissioner-General:

Not for the first time in its proud history, UNRWA faces a formidable challenge in upholding its mandate – an expression of the will of the international community – and preserving key services like education and health care for Palestine Refugees.

Today, the US government has announced a contribution of $60 M, in support of our efforts to keep our schools open, health clinics running, and emergency food and cash distribution systems functioning for some of the world’s most vulnerable refugees. While important, this funding is dramatically below past levels. The total US contribution in…

It’s obvious why The Evening Standard took Carillion off its front page yesterday [IMAGE]JANUARY 16TH, 2018 BEX SUMNER UKSpread the word: Facebook TwitterUK.

Carillion’s collapse has made front-page news across the print media. But not in The Evening Standard, which former chancellor George Osborne edits. Well, not for long, anyway.While the evening paper put Carillion on the front page of its first edition on 15 January, it quickly replaced it with a second edition scaremongering about the election of three new Momentum candidates to Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC):So why might The Evening Standard choose a story about internal Labour Party processes over the collapse of the UK’s second largest construction company?Carillion employs 43,000 people. It has debts of around £1.5bn. And the Conservative government awarded it nearly £2bn of contracts after it issued its first profit warning. All deeply newsworthy.Well, not only did the The Standard‘s editor, George Osborne, support Carillion’s takeover of Britain’s public services during his time as chancellor; he also earns £650,000 a year from a company that profited from Carillion’s collapse.Osborne and CarillionBetween 2010 and 2015, Osborne oversaw a doubling in outsourced public contracts. In 2010, there were 526 outsourcing contracts, worth £56bn. After Osborne had been chancellor for five years, there were 1,185, worth £120bn.In October 2014, Osborne enthusiastically announced a new deal with Carillion, which he said was a key part of Britain’s “long-term economic plan”:Meanwhile, his brutal austerity agenda led to a chronic underfunding of services. Companies like Carillion overbid for contracts that turned out to be unprofitable – while “fat cat” bosses creamed off any money.Then, in 2017, Osborne took an advisory job with the BlackRock Investment Institute, for which he earns £650,000 a year. As Political Scrapbook notes, at the time he registered his interests in 2017, he also expected to receive equity in the company:Now it has emerged that BlackRock, the world’s largest fund manager, is thought to have made £40m profit by gambling that Carillion would collapse.Taking responsibilityCorbyn has placed the blame for the crisis firmly at the Conservatives’ door, saying:Tory underfunding has caused the crisis. But privatisation, outsourced contracts and profiteering have made it worse. Our public services… are struggling after years of austerity and private contractors siphoning off profits from the public purse.Yet George Osborne, in his role as Evening Standard editor, chose to attack the Labour leader on his paper’s front page on the day Carillion collapsed. He did, to be fair, also put out an editorial. But the Carillion story didn’t even lead that. And instead of taking responsibility for the mess, Osborne used the editorial to deflect blame onto civil servants rather than ministers, and then had the gall to ask:Why has the state found itself so dependent on a few very large outsourcing firms?A different wayITV‘s Robert Peston has called the collapse of Carillion “the definitive end of Tory and New Labour governments 25-year love affair with private provision of public services”. Let’s hope he’s right. For decades now, successive governments have handed profits from government contracts over to private interests while socialising the losses, allowing a few people to get rich at the expense of the many.But there is another way. We could share the proceeds of our society with each other. We could – and we must – take back control.The Canary asked The Evening Standard for comment but received no reply by the time of publication.

Gazan economy, infrastructure on verge of collapse, Israeli security officials say – Israel News – Haaretz.com

Gazan Economy, Infrastructure on Verge of Collapse, Israeli Security Officials SayOfficials are worried about possible consequences of continued military pressure on the Strip, as deteriorating conditions raise the risk of an uncontrollable flare-upAmos Harel Jan 15, 2018 8:43 AM  0comments   Zen Subscribe now  Shareshare on facebook  Tweet send via email reddit stumbleupon

Palestinian children walk in a street on a rainy day in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip January 6, 2018. IBRAHEEM ABU MUSTAFA/REUTERSHamas approaches endgame in Gaza as Israel sharpens its tunnel-elimination prowess’We’ve never seen one like this’: Israel destroys Gaza attack tunnelIsraeli army warns: Danger of violence escalating into war is growingSenior defense officials one meets these days – not only members of the Government Coordinator of Activities in the Territories unit, but officers in uniform, and to some extent even the Shin Bet security service – are voicing surprisingly similar opinions about the situation in the Gaza Strip. The economy in the Strip is on the verge of total collapse, like from zero to below zero, as one official put it, and so is civilian infrastructure.To really understand the Middle East – subscribe to HaaretzHamas weak position, both economically and politically, makes it easier for Israel to take the necessary steps to destroy its tunnel project. As reported Saturday, Israel demolished a fourth tunnel in the Gaza Strip in less than three months (and in one incident a Hamas man was injured in Lebanon in an explosion by entities unknown). But politicians in Israel are acting as if military pressure can continue on the Strip, ignoring the worsening economic situation, and that has experts worried. In the long term, continually deteriorating infrastructure brings the risk of an uncontrollable blow-up in the Strip.About two weeks ago, Haaretz reported that the number of trucks passing through the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and Gaza has been cut in half due to the decline in purchasing power of Gazas people. The latest statistics say the number of trucks is down a third, to between just 300 to 400 trucks a day.>> Hamas approaches endgame in Gaza as Israel sharpens its tunnel-elimination prowess / AnalysisKeep updated: Sign up to our newsletterEmail*Sign upAbout 95 percent of Gazas water is undrinkable. Hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of sewage flow into the Mediterranean daily, reaching Israels shores as well. Theres a bit more electricity available now – up to six or seven hours a day, thanks to a decision by the Palestinian Authority to go back to funding some of the power, which is purchased from Israel. Experts warn of the outbreak of infectious diseases.Unemployment in the Gaza Strip is inching toward 50 percent and is even higher among young people. The more than two million people now living in Gaza are trapped between the harsh Hamas regime and the almost total impossibility of leaving the Strip because of the closed crossings into Israel and Egypt.When Israel began building its anti-tunnel barrier almost a year ago, concerns were raised that Hamas might try to mount an attack through a tunnel on the Gazan border before this strategic asset, into which Hamas has sunk hundreds of millions of shekels over the past 10 years, is taken away from them.Meanwhile, that hasnt happened, although the bulldozers are advancing. At the same time, as reported, four tunnels have been destroyed in three months on account of intelligence and technology.Hamas, poorer and more isolated than in the past, is in a trap. It depends on Egypt and fears angering the generals in Cairo. But it seems that the explanation for its policy of restraint is also connected to the election of Yahya Sinwar as the organizations leader in Gaza. Sinwar controls the Strip both politically and militarily. His predecessor, Ismail Haniyeh, who is above him in the hierarchy, is a resident of Gaza, unlike Haniyehs predecessor, Khaled Meshal, who urged a hard line from his comfortable location in Qatar. Haniyeh and Sinwar are meanwhile taking a relatively moderate stance.Israel is considering changes in civilian policy toward the Gaza Strip. But Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz has been unable even to advance a serious discussion on a plan for an artificial island off the Gazan coast, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman oppose. Discussion of other proposals, like bringing in thousands of laborers from the Strip to work in Israeli border communities (which involves a security risk), have dragged on for months.The summer 2014 war in Gaza broke out for a combination of reasons. Israel increased its punitive measures against Hamas in the West Bank after three teenagers from Gush Etzion were abducted; it turned out later theyd been killed. Hamas economic difficulties increased due to a clash with the PA, which stopped paying salaries to government workers in

It’s official: we now know how many disabled people had their benefits ‘slashed’ by the government | The Canary

It’s official: we now know how many disabled people had their benefits ‘slashed’ by the government JANUARY 16TH, 2018 STEVE TOPPLE UK Spread the word: Facebook TwitterUK

A request by a Labour MP to the government has revealed the extent to which disabled people have had specific benefits cut. It shows that nearly 200,000 people lost their support in the space of just over four years.“Impoverishing”The Labour MP for Chesterfield, Toby Perkins, questioned then Secretary of State for Work and Pensions David Gauke in October and November 2017. He asked how many people who previously received the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) were not awarded its replacement, the Personal Independence Payment (PIP). This was for the period from 8 April 2013 to 31 July 2017.The government finally released the full details on 15 January, after seemingly holding the information back. It revealed that 189,960 disabled people who previously got the DLA were denied PIP. This is 21% of all disabled people who were reassessed by private outsourcing firms Atos and Capita.Perkins told HuffPost that:These figures reveal the extent to which the new regime is impoverishing severely disabled people.The DWP says…The DLA was a non-means-tested benefit for disabled people who need support with their care and mobility needs. But the 2010 Coalition government replaced the DLA with PIP to reduce costs by 20%. Ever since, PIP has been dogged by controversy. This included the UN saying the government must “repeal” changes made to PIP in 2017 – an argument the High Court agreed with just before Christmas. So far, though, the government has not been willing to change PIP.A DWP spokesperson told HuffPost in relation to Perkins’ questions:We introduced PIP to replace the outdated DLA system. PIP is a better benefit which takes a much wider look at the way an individual’s health condition or disability impacts them on a daily basis. Under PIP, 29% of claimants receive the highest rate of support compared to 15% under DLA.Decisions are made following careful consideration of all the information provided by the claimant, including supporting evidence from their GP or medical specialist. Anyone who disagrees with a decision can appeal.“Twisted and nasty”Co-founder of Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) Linda Burnip is unimpressed. She told The Canary:The purpose of PIP was never to address the needs of disabled people. It was to cruelly slash the help that so many depend upon to be able to take part in society. Maria Miller, AKA ‘Miller the Killer’, announced way back in 2011 that the scrapping of DLA was to effectively remove eligibility from 20% of disabled people. And at the same time she may as well have announced they didn’t really need to wash daily.Esther McVey/’McVile’ simply accelerated this twisted and nasty process. How can anyone place any credence in a failing assessment process when the two private firms involved in carrying out the assessment between them only employ four qualified doctors? The whole process is a gigantic farce and the fact that 65% of appeals are upheld simply illustrates this.Redefining disability By denying 21% of claimants benefits they were previously entitled to, the government has essentially redefined disability. Because hypothetically, someone on the DLA in 2012 could have been deemed as needing support with cooking meals and using public transport. But from 2013, they might no longer have got that support. You could say the government seemed to think that such a person was miraculously cured and no longer needed the assistance.In the world of the Conservative government, this may seem OK. But it must surely seem like the cruellest of cuts to the rest of us.

Trump should be on guard. The Rothschilds have a habit of murdering Presidents who don’t follow their orders | GMMuk – Michael Aydinian

Trump should be on guard. The Rothschilds have a habit of murdering Presidents who don’t follow their orders January 14, 2018 Michael Aydinian NewsBefore your read the extract taken from the diary of the 33rd U.S. President & the accompanying piece by

Mark Weiser, I’d like to firstly say I’m no fan of Harry S. Truman. Japan had lost the war & twice offered to surrender. This detail remained hidden from public gaze & only surfaced in the autobiography’s of two of Truman’s inner circle years later. The reason the atom bombs were dropped – Stalin had to be sent a message. Whether it was the case of paranoid military big-wigs fearing a Soviet invasion is unclear. What’s for certain is the decision to drop the bomb on civilians was a crime so heinous, even the death sentence would have seemed unworthy. I’d also like to identify some of the major factors involved here whenever anyone speaks out against Israel & the Zionists…. Firstly, it’s hardly protocol for any world leader let alone an American President to roundly admonish one particular race of people. It’s simply not the done thing. Therefore, it goes without saying – if ever astonishing revelations are brought to light by heads of state, in normal circumstances it would not only make front page headlines but it’s a cast-iron guarantee the media would not let up until they’d well & truly squeezed the shock/horror routine bone dry. Yet, even though Truman’s assertion is anything but an isolated case, it is unequivocal – whenever Israel or Zionists are at the centre of any controversy, the media goes into automatic clamp-down mode so that there’s zero discussion regarding what in all likelihood are very serious allegations. Then to add insult to injury, there’s the obligatory crass branding of the messenger an anti-Semite. The story is killed so swiftly a Cagney death scene in comparison would seem an eternity!  Countless world leaders have felt compelled to speak out, each one voicing similar concerns. I say compelled because they know only too well that at best they’re on a hiding to nothing; at worst, they may be signing their own death warrant. Incredible as it may seem, Zionist intimidation is so obscene, vindictive & thorough, it virtually renders Sicilian mafiosi activity a minor inconvenience.  Making matters worse still is while Italian mafiosi strong-arm tactics often receives negative publicity, those who reveal Zionist skulduggery know the entire media apparatus is owned by the very same people. Therefore, how can one not conclude Zionist whistle-blowers are merely folk whose conscience simply drives them to tell the truth? Why would they lie? Who, after all, in their right mind would put the boot in by openly lying about pathological liars & mass-murderers? Never have truer words been said when the great French poet Voltaire stated –TO KNOW WHO RULES OVER YOU SEE WHO YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO CRITICISE! Of course often the end result of this form of Zionist censorship is sheer disbelief whenever such revelations are made. ‘How could this be true? The media never said anything.’ Well, if the media clams up in order to protect the greatest gangsters in history, how can the general public ever discover who they are? And to give some idea of their outrageous level of deceit & wickedness, what does the media do when the most vile specimen on the planet, Benjamin Netanyahu, makes highly dubious claims against other nations – THE EXACT REVERSE! What he says is plastered all over the papers yet there’s zero evidence; goody-goody TV news readers make sure their most solemn, serious look is in place in order to lend as much credence as possible to Netanyahu’s bile. Then the media embark on a campaign to subliminally brainwash uninitiated folk by repeating the same lies over & over again! How often have I said, it’s the media who decide when people should get angry & what they should get angry about? What it all boils down to is we cannot be lied to more if they tried! It really is that bad! As well as the chronic double standards & diabolical criminality, not to forget the sheer Chutzpah of it all, the most worrying aspect is even though most people now are largely convinced lies were told in order to invade Iraq, notably Saddam’s WMDs, has any mass-murderer been made to face the music? Have we even been able to bring about the desperately needed legislation so that such gargantuan crimes against humanity can never again occur? Has the media ever apologised to the people of Iraq? I mean such grave crimes surely warrant Nuremberg style prosecutions? HELL NO! So why should we be surprised when the same people think nothing of forging ahead with the identical foreign policies that have brought about chaos, carnage, death & destruction?   Finally, I feel it’s also crucial to mention many Jews are aware & indeed horrified of Israel’s wanton disregard for international law, as well as the unbridled underhand treachery of all-powerful Zionist lobbies throughout the
