For over two thousand years the Jewish community have suffered because of their race and identity and now they have a country, recognised by the UN and the international community. Furthermore there has never existed a country called Palestine, there is no Roman record of a country called Palestine,although the Emperor Hadrian after the second Jewish revolt insulted the Jewish people by calling the area Palestine after the Philistines. The Byzantiums never heard of the Palestines nor the ottoman Turks
In fact the Palestinians only appear after 1967 and are a made up people and a complete myth,
If the Palestinians are indeed a myth, then the real question becomes "Why?" Why invent a fictitious people? The answer is that the myth of the Palestinian People serves as the justification for Arab occupation of the Land of Israel. While the Arabs already possess 21 sovereign countries of their own (more than any other single people on earth) and control a land mass 800 times the size of the Land of Israel, this is apparently not enough for them. They therefore feel the need to rob the Jews of their one and only country, one of the smallest on the planet. Unfortunately, many people ignorant of the history of the region, including much of the world media, are only too willing to help.
On second thought, it may be unfair to compare Palestine to Disneyland. After all, Disneyland really exists.

Tradisjonelle undersøkelse teknikker kommer til kort når overfor cyber-kriminelle fra bankranere for pedofile... og så er det kampen for å forklare sakene til dommere
Hvis politiet har en hard tid holde opp med kriminelle i den "virkelige verden", har de virkelig fått hendene fullstendige, elektroniske, ifølge Israel politiet Superintendent Meir Hayoun av Cyber-kriminalitet politienhet. Håndteringen av cyber-kriminalitet har vært et spill av catch-up- og som cyber kriminelle utvikle nye og innovative måter å rive av mennesker, sa han, det er en konstant kamp for å holde tritt med dem.
Hayoun var tale på den årlige begivenheten i Israel Internett Association (ISOC-IL), hvor datamaskin og Internett industriledere samlet denne uken for å diskutere alt fra fremtidige trender i søkemotor-teknologi til fremtidens TV, Internett markedsføring, gaming og merkevarebygging- og cyber-kriminalitet, som fortsetter å bli verre som gjerningsmennene av svindel, planer og dristig dagslys ran blir stadig mer sofistikerte i deres metoder.
Cyber-livet har forårsaket ingen ende av hodepine for politiet, sa Hayoun. "En gang, det var en klar differensiering mellom telekommunikasjon forbrytelser og datamaskinen forbrytelser. Telefonsamtaler var en ting, og Internett surfing var noe annet. Men i dag, takket være konvergens av enheter, og ubiquitousness av tjenester, alt har fusjonert."
Even though rabbits are the second most farmed animal in the European Union, relatively no regulations exist to protect these animals from abuse. Most rabbits live in cramped, dirty cages where they don’t even have enough room to hop, walk, or stretch out.

Why should we the taxpayers be also abused by corrupt cops. It's revolting that the corrupt cops enjoy a paid vacation while waiting for their exploitve disability pension and the corrupt unions to arrange that any charges are dropped and we the taxpayers pay any financial settlements.
ALL MONEY SETTLEMENTS CREATED BY CORRUPT COPS SHOULD BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE POLICE PENSION FUND.

Samir Issawi was detained in Israeli unjust jails, sentenced to 30 years, After 10 years in jail, he was liberated under Wafa'a Alahrar swap deal.
Israeli occupation forces rearrested Samir with no charge, so he decided to start hunger strike with two options either to be released or die.
Samir Issawi has been on open hunger strike since 1st of August 2012 till now, his health is now deteriorating close to death.
Thank you for taking action.

All consumers throughout the European Union must be given the means to make an informed choice on whether they want to buy goods produced in illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Ask the EU to act immediately to implement labeling regulations that, similarly to what happens already in member states UK and Denmark, enable consumers to distinguish goods produced in settlements in the occupied territories from those produced in Israel.
By international law, all Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are illegal, and the EU has never budged on that basic principle. At least not in theory. Truth is, despite its supposed commitment to peace and human rights, the EU is and has been all too willing to look away when Israel has defied the international law and trampled on the human rights of Palestinians. Far from promoting peace, this EU (non)stance is exacerbating problems that have been festering for decades and have been undermining any hope for peace in that area of the world — and not just that area, as history teaches us. EU’s double standard on Israel is also diminishing its moral and political standing within and without, and contributing to the disaffection that many Europeans now feel for the EU as an idea.
Tell the EU it needs to act and do so coherently with the principles on which it was founded and with the international laws it has never reneged. As pointed out by former EU heads of state Mary Robinson (former president of Ireland) and Martti Ahtisaari (Nobel peace prize laureate and former president of Finland) in an article published in the Guardian, Europe imports 15 times as many goods from the Israeli settlements as it does from the Palestinians. What’s more, most EU consumers do not have the means to distinguish goods produced in illegal settlements in the occupied territories from those produced in Israel. By buying merchandise produced in the occupied territories, these EU consumers may be unwittingly funding Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory, thus undermining peace, human rights, and the rule of law.
The UK and Denmark, two long-term EU members, have adopted simple labeling guidelines that enable consumers to distinguish between products from settlements, those made in Israel, and Palestinian products. These countries have done nothing more than what already required by EU consumer protection legislation.
The EU must follow the example set by the UK and Denmark without delay. As stated by Robinson and Ahtisaari in the mentioned article, “[c]orrect labeling of settlement goods is not an anti-Israeli policy. It is pro-consumer, pro-peace and pro-international law.”
Congress is now withholding aid to the Palestinians due to Congressional objections to Palestine's bid for statehood. Do you feel the United States should punish Palestine in this way simply because they are struggling for a Palestinian state, which UNESCO has now granted them?
Currently, the City of Kingston is actively considering the creation of a by-law that would restrict the sale of certain animals in pet stores. The creation of this by-law will be discussed and debated in January 2013.
Kingston Animal Rescue strongly believes that rabbits should be included in any by-law that is created. Rabbits have life spans similar to dogs and cats, can produce a large number of offspring, have specialized care requirements and are often promoted as impulse gifts for Easter. They are the third most abandoned animal in shelters and rescues.
Rabbits MUST be protected and included in any by-law restricting the sale of animals in Kingston pet stores! There is little time left so please act now: sign and share!
As citizens of the world we call on you to use all of your powers to end the abuse of Palestinian child prisoners under Israeli control. We ask you to support freezing all preferential trade agreements with Israel until that state upholds the rights of Palestinian children and implements international law. It should be noted that every year around 700 Palestinian children, even as young as 8 years old, are arrested and detained without proper trial or access to law or their parents. They are kept in harsh conditions, sometimes in isolation and often far from home. Usually their offences are minor and often they are forced to sign false confessions in order to try to be released. We believe all this to be inhumane and in contravention of international, UN, US, EU, UK and human rights law and that this is something your government could and should act upon to bring about its immediate end.

We live in a city called Modiin in Israel.
This is a city literally has nothing to do in it, The theatre was literally the last thing we could do in this city and now it's being taken away to build an H&M Store, And why? Because they decided that driving 10 minutes out of the city to buy clothes at H&M is too far, So why should we have nothing to do because they want to buy clothes in H&M inside the city because they're too lazy to drive (or take a bus) 10 minutes outside of the city to buy at the exact same store.
Please help us save our theatre.
Modiin is a city in Israel that literaly has nothing left to do in it,
The theatre in the mall was our last place to go to and now it's being solled to build an H&M store,
How is that fair? we won't have a theatre so that other people will be able to buy clothes inside the city when they can drive a bit to the same store 10 minutes outside of the city?
CoverGirl, owned by Proctor and Gamble, continue animal testing on rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other animals, forcing them to swallow or inhale massive quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having caustic chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin––even though the results of animal tests are often unreliable or not applicable to humans. Even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you.
Although modern alternative test methods exist, huge multiproduct manufacturers, continue to poison and harm animals in tests that aren't even required by law.
CoverGirl is launching a sister line of cosmetics called NatureLuxe. Taylor Swift is the first face of the new company.

Recently, Isreal has banned the practice of declawing cats. It joins other countries,- Australia, Brazil, United Kingdom, Finland, Estonia, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It's time for the United States to ban this inhumane practice, as well.
Declawing is an understatement, because in order to remove a cat’s claws, the first joints of each toe are actually amputated. It is a very painful elective surgery that could take weeks of recovery and effects walking or scratching in their litter box. It can also cause lameness and balance disturbances. And there are also anesthesia risks.

Oromo Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Self Help Association (ORRRSHA) is a non-profit organisation that believes in a world of social justice and of environmentally sensitive development that recognises and respects the rights of indigenous peoples to actively participate in and enjoy the benefits of development in their own territories without prejudice. ORRRHSA, Oromo Human Rights and Relief Organization have been campaigning to stop land grabbing and the associated human rights violations, displacement and land eviction programme in Oromia/Ethiopia by issuing numerous reports that highlight the dangers of land grabbing to the livelihoods of Oromo and other indigenous people and the potential insecurity threats in the affected Oromia & southern Regions of Ethiopia. These concerns have either been deliberately ignored or undermined with no room for viable alternatives to land grabbing discourses that could mitigate the catastrophic consequences.
Tigray as the home region of the ruling party of the Tigrean Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) is spared from the land grabbing policy. Alone this fact confirms that TPLF’s land grab policy is ethno centrically motivated. The Oromia region, by contrast, is the largest and main target of the land grab policy as it has been the case with human right violations in general. It is estimated all together that millions of acres of cultivable land have already been leased to foreign investors. The tendency is to double or triple in the five Transformation plans, as the TPLF regime recently started publicly to defend its land grab policy as economic imperative
Even International institutions such as FAO, World Bank and Aid and Development of the European Commission do share the mentioned concerns, as this became clear from their various released statements on pertinent seminars, studies and conferences.
So far, most foreign investors in Ethiopia are from China, India and some Arab countries like Saudi Arabia. Their interest in acquisition of land in the country is largely motivated in producing agricultural products they themselves need back at home. These are mainly oilseeds such as sesame and flowers. China, for example, who is currently the largest investor in Ethiopia, wants to produce sesame. China has been Ethiopia’s largest market for sesame export. China uses sesame for chocolates, biscuits, and extraction of oil for both its external and domestic markets. If China is to satisfy its enormous needs for oilseeds through its own production of sesame in Ethiopia, this would certainly put Ethiopia on a disadvantaged position. The expected advantage in employment and technology transfer may also not be realisable as China often uses its own employees. All these arguments hold more or less true as far as other investing countries, like India and Arab countries, are concerned.
This shows that the humanitarian consequences of the kind of foreign investment under discussion are far reaching, indeed. It uproots the peasants from their land, which is not only the source of their social identity but also their means of earning life. In doing so it may even turn the self employed to unemployed bulk of people with no means of livelihood. This is not to mention the destruction it would certainly entail in respect to environment and the ecological balance in general. For example, drinking water may get even scarcer in the face of irrigation necessities or deforestation that could result from the aggressive and irresponsible nature of foreign mechanised farming. As this is endemic to the entire social fabric, the current government campaign for land grabbing by foreigners is not less than what one might be tempted to call “global agrarian colonialism”.
The prime and sole motive of the Ethiopian government in leasing land can only be maximizing its hard currency reserve, which it often uses for its military expenditure for war and suppressing its own subjects as this has been the hallmark of the TPLF government in the last two decades. This is a typical self-estranging or self-alienating situation to the Ethiopian peoples, in which case they became victims of their own possession and labour. In short these are the most gross human rights violations perpetrated by the TPLF government against the very people it considers to be its own subjects.
The security and safety of the local population in Oromia and the environment and wild life in the Oromia and southern part of Ethiopia have been a critical concerns for both local and international campaigners across the globe.BBC News night, Human Rights Watch, AI & other issued numerous alerts (“Land Grabbing” in Ethiopia: Soldiers Poisoning Water Sources, Forcing Thousands off Ancestral Lands and Killing Wildlife, Violence Surges in Oromia & Gambela) and Rivers International (Gibe III Dam Fuels Land Grabs in Ethiopia Ethiopia's Gibe III Dam: Sowing Hunger and Conflict) among others have warned international organisations, donor countries and nongovernmental organisations to pay attention to the escalating and aggravating situation in Oromia and southern territories in Ethiopia.
Oromo community in Europe is alarmed by the trend of systematic killings, the campaign of murder, the land dispossession, the displacement, and the flight of Oromo and other indigenous people into neighbouring countries & Europe.
We are concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Oromia and we appeal to peace loving governments, organisations, and individuals to hold the government in Ethiopia accountable for the atrocities and inhumane treatment of innocent civilians in Oromia and southern part of Ethiopia.
The Oromo Human Rights and Relief Organization unequivocally condemn the land grabbing policy of the Ethiopian government.
We demand the TPLF/EPRDF ruling party to immediately stop this dangerous policy.
We call upon all international communities to use all means available to stop the TPLF regime from its irresponsible and self destructive land grabbing policy
