L’«eroe» Erdogan entusiasma i palestinesi

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 31 gennaio, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – GERUSALEMME
Il Manifesto
Altroché «incidente diplomatico». Un fulminante scambio verbale tra il premier turco Erdogan e il presidente israeliano Peres, nella cornice di Davos, crea il gelo tra i due paesi alleati e infiamma i palestinesi e l’opinione pubblica turca e araba. A Istanbul e a Gaza migliaia inneggiano al leader musulmano. Mentre l’inviato di Obama, George Mitchell, cancella la tappa in Turchia Ma in Israele gli analisti ridimensionano gli effetti dello scontro tra il premier turco e Peres.

Anp, Hamas e Fatah alla resa dei conti

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 31 gennaio, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – GERUSALEMME
Il Manifesto

Cominceranno il 22 febbraio al Cairo i negoziati per «l’unità nazionale palestinese», la riconciliazione tra il partito di Abu Mazen, Fatah, e il movimento islamico Hamas. Ma nei Territori occupati nessuno si fa illusioni. Rimane lontana la fine della frattura tra la Cisgiordania sotto il controllo del presidente palestinese uscente e Gaza con al potere Hamas dal giugno 2007. Non è mai così intenso e senza pietà, come in questo momento, lo scontro tra le due organizzazioni. I palestinesi parlano di «odio insanabile». Leggi il seguito di questo post »

La Turquie tente de s’imposer comme médiateur impartial au Proche-Orient

Posted by alicemarziali su 31 gennaio, 2009

LE MONDE

Le premier ministre turc, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a fait une sortie aussi fracassante que remarquée, jeudi 29 janvier, au Forum économique de Davos (Suisse), après avoir tenu tête, dans cette ambiance d’ordinaire si feutrée, au président israélien, Shimon Peres. Une sortie particulièrement appréciée par l’opinion arabe et musulmane, au lendemain des événements de Gaza. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Sesta analisi settimanale: Conflittualità

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 31 gennaio, 2009

Con la proclamazione di una tregua unilaterale da parte d’Israele, il 18 gennaio scorso è terminata l’operazione Cast Lead. I Palestinesi di Gaza si ritrovano con circa 1300 morti, più di 5000 feriti e 100000 senzatetto (le case distrutte sono circa 21000), oltre ad una devastazione che ha causato danni per almeno 1,5 milioni di dollari. Gli Israeliani registrano 13 morti, di cui tre sono vittime civili. Ma al di là di questi importanti dati materiali, qual è lo scenario politico prodotto dalla guerra di Gaza? Quali sono ora i rapporti di forza tra Hamas e Israele, e quante possibilità ci sono di arrivare ad una tregua durevole tra le due parti? Chi esce davvero vincitore dal conflitto, chi ha raggiunto i suoi obiettivi? Quali sono gli “effetti collaterali” di questa campagna militare? Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Shelly Paz , THE JERUSALEM POST

In the closest thing to a debate during the current election campaign, the three main candidates for the premiership arrived at the Channel 2 studio in Neveh Ilan, west of the capital, on Saturday evening and answered questions submitted by Internet surfers.

Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu said there would be no more disengagements under his leadership, Labor chairman Ehud Barak said the chances for the release of captured soldier Gilad Schalit were higher following the Gaza offensive, and Kadima head Tzipi Livni said that the Gush Katif evacuees were not being treated seriously, and committed to changing the situation.

Hamas: Blair’s suggestion ‘testifies to his stupidity’

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 31 gennaio, 2009

Jan. 31, 2009 JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST

 After Middle East Quartet envoy to the region Tony Blair said in in an interview to The Times that Hamas must be involved in the peace process, the movement and its leaders issues statements both denouncing Blair and drawing strength from his comments. Mushir al-Masri, chairman of the Hamas faction in the Palestinian Authority parliament said “Tony Blair’s words prove that Europe and the world understand that all attempts to uproot Hamas and erase it from the Palestinian scene have failed, and that today we are the first and foremost power” representing Palestinians.

L’apertura di Blair ad Hamas “Coinvolgerlo nel processo di pace”

Repubblica

31 Gennaio 2009

L’ex premier britannico in un’intervista al Times: “La linea dell’isolamento di Gaza non ha mai funzionato”-

LONDRA – Hamas dev’essere in qualche modo coinvolto nel processo di pace in Medio Oriente perché la linea dell’isolamento di Gaza finora non ha funzionato. E’ quanto emerge dall’intervista dell’ex premier britannico Tony Blair al magazine del quotidiano Times, che prende le mosse dalle nuove prospettive dopo l’insediamento di Barack Obama alla Casa Bianca.

“La politica di isolare Gaza nella ricerca di un accordo (di pace) non ha mai funzionato né mai funzionerà”, afferma l’inviato speciale del “quartetto” (Usa, Ue, Russia e Onu) nella regione, che implicitamente critica la strategia seguita dall’amministrazione Bush e da Israele, che hanno puntato a concentrare gli sforzi per i negoziati sulla trattativa esclusiva con l’Anp in Cisgiordania.

WASHINGTON POST

DAVOS, Switzerland — Turkey’s prime minister received a hero’s welcome home Friday after he reproached Israel’s president over the Gaza offensive and stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was greeted by a jubilant crowd of more than 5,000 supporters, many waving Turkish and Palestinian flags, who flooded Istanbul’s airport when his plane touched down about 2 a.m. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Settlement data ‘implicates Israel’

Posted by alicemarziali su 30 gennaio, 2009

 AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONALMichael Sfard, Yesh Din’s legal counsel, said the information was a “severe indictment” of Israel’s military and government.

Israeli authorities are “systematically violating international law and the property rights of Palestinian residents,” he said in a statement.

The information leaked to the group shows that in three out of every four settlements in the West Bank at least some of the construction was completed without proper permits, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported.

The daily said the database showed that, in more than 30 settlements, extensive construction of buildings and infrastructure like roads, schools, synagogues, and even police stations was carried out on private lands belonging to Palestinians.

In one settlement, Elon Moreh, 18 houses were built on private land, the reports says. In another, Efrat, a park and a synagogue were built on privateland, and in a third, Ariel, a college was built without legal approval.

Yesh Din said it would begin running advertisments in Palestinian newspapers to encourage people to take legal action, and will also offer legal counsel, the statement from the group said.

The database focuses on the 120 West bank settlements that have been authorised by the Israeli government since it occupied the territory in 1967. About 100 other unauthorised outposts have also been established by settlers. 

The settlements are illegal under international law and the so-called “road map” setting the course for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations calls for a halt to their expansion.

There was no immediate comment from the Israeli government on the conclusions of the report.

UN to probe Gaza compound attack

Posted by alicemarziali su 30 gennaio, 2009

AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONAL“Over the past several weeks, unacceptable and terrible situations have taken place against the civilian people and against particularly the United Nations compounds, where many civilians were sheltered,” he said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The UN chief’s announcement came shortly after nine people, seven of them schoolchildren, were injured in an Israeli air raid on Khan Yunis, a city in the southern Gaza Strip.

Israel seemed to be targeting a Palestinian fighter on a motorcycle, witnesses told Al Jazeera. There have been a series of raids on Gaza in recent days despite the Israeli government calling a unilateral ceasefire to end the fighting on January 17. 

‘Upset and angered’

 

Ban said there would be an “independent investigation to look into the case of [the]Unrwa compound bombing”.

 

The bombing set fire to warehouses, destroying badly-needed food and medical aid.

UN officials say they have evidence that white phosphorous, a smokescreen agent that can cause severe burns, was used in the attack on the UN relief agency’s main building in Gaza that left three people injured.

“I myself saw and visited this compound, which has been destroyed by Israeli forces. It was just, again, unacceptable, and I was very much frustrated and upset and angered by what I had seen,” Ban said.

Israel said Hamas fighters had used the compound to launch attacks on its forces but later apologised for the incident.

A total of 53 installations used by the United Nations Relief and Works agency were damaged or destroyed during Israel’s Gaza campaign including 37 schools – six of which were being used as emergency shelters – six health centres, and two warehouses.

Ban’s investigation will be separate from one that the UN Human Rights Council has launched into alleged violations of humanitarian law during the fighting, but he did not give details on who will carry it out and when.

Raanan Gissin, an adviser to Ariel Sharon, a former Israeli prime minister, said that Israel has nothing to hide and called for any investigation to examine Hamas’s conduct during the war.

“In the 22 days of the war they used their own people as human shields. This is the largest hostage situation in world history,” he said.

“Israel exercised its right to self-defence, taking great care not to harm civilians.

“Hamas has used Unrwa camps – in which armed men are not allowed, according to the UN Charter – to deploy their own weapons and fighters and brought in other people, so that when Israel fired it was turned into a crime scene and a smoking gun was pointed at Israel.”

US demands

The Security Council has yet to take a position on the UN investigation, but Susan Rice, the new US ambassador to the body, said on Thursday that Israel should carry out its own investigation into possible abuses by its forces.

“We expect Israel will meet its international obligations to investigate and we also call upon all members of the international community to refrain from politicising these important issues,” she said.

In her debut speech at the UN Security Council in New York, Rice also said that Hamas was guilty of violating international law “through its rocket attacks against Israeli civilians in southern Israel and the use of civilian facilities to provide protection for its terrorist attacks”. George Mitchell, the US special envoy to the Middle East, is in the region as part of efforts to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians. But he warned that there could be setbacks. “The tragic violence in Gaza and in southern Israel offers a sobering reminder of the very serious and difficult challenges and unfortunately the setbacks that will come,” he said. More than 1,300 Palestinians, including 44 civilians sheltering at a UN-run school housing refugees, were killed during Israel’s war on Gaza. Thirteen Israel citizens also died during the conflict. The African Union has joined the number of international bodies condemning Israel’s attacks on Gaza. The 53-member African body called on Friday for the United Nations to investigate allegations that Israel violated human rights in a series of “massive, indiscriminate and disproportionate” raids. In Davos on Thursday, Ban also announced an international appeal to raise $613m to help rebuild Gaza. He said the appeal for funds covered the requirements of the UN and other organisations for the next six to nine months, providing aid such as medical care and clean water. Egypt’s foreign ministry said on Friday that the country will host an international conference in March aimed at raising $2bn for the reconstruction of Gaza. The ministry said the conference will be “organised in co-ordination” with the Palestinian Authority, which is led by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president and leader of Fatah – Hamas’ main rival.
