UN: ROOT CAUSES OF ISRAELI OCCUPATION TO BLAME FOR RECENT VIOLENCE
Israel claims that its recent arrests, killings, its violence and attacks on Palestinians is in response to Palestinian stone-throwers, Palestinian unrest, ungovernability and so-called Palestinian stabbing attempts. However, a UN body, UNRWA, has suggested that the root causes of the conflict (including, according to UNRWA, the illegal "Israeli occupation") are to blame and must be addressed. In addition, several of the so called Palestinian stabbing attempts have been proved to be false (see alongside). Click here for UN Statement.

ISRAELIS STOMP, SWEAR & REFUSE TO ASSIST BLEEDING 13 YEAR OLD PALESTINIAN CHILD
[13-year old Palestinian child deliberately run over by Israeli settlers and left to die]
On Monday Israeli forces shot a 15 year old Palestinian teenager Hassan Manasra (15) and deliberately ran over his cousin Ahmed Manasra (13). According to family members, the two boys were attacked by Israeli settlers while going to a mall near their family house. The 15 year old Palestinian child, Hassan, died due to his bullet wounds while the 13 year old (pictured above) is in a serious condition.
A video that has emerged (screen-grab above) shows the 13 year old Palestinian child, Ahmed Manasra (after he was deliberately run over by an Israeli settler) gasping for breath, bleeding and crying for help. Israeli settlers, Israeli police and Israeli emergency medical services (instead of assisting the young Palestinian boy) abuse, hurl insults, swear at him, call for his murder and even stomp on him to prevent him from getting up.
This year, between January and September 2015, Israel killed and injured, on average, 45 Palestinians a week. This month alone, since the 1st of October 2015 (in less than two weeks), according to the human rights organisation “Defence for Children International”, Israel killed 24 Palestinians, including 8 children, and injured at least 1300. In addition, Israel has arrested more than 400 Palestinians (in the last two weeks since October 1st), approximately half of those arrested are aged between 14 and 20.
NEW VIDEO CONFIRMS 19-YR OLD PALESTINIAN YOUTH KILLED LAST WEEK BY ISRAEL WAS UNARMED
19-year-old Palestinian youth, Fadi Alloun, was shot dead by Israeli police one week ago after being chased by an Israeli mob.
A video of the incident shows an Israel mob inciting Israeli police to shoot 19 year old Alloun. After Alloun was killed the video shows the Israeli mob then celebrating by chanting “Death to the Arabs!”
Initially, Israeli reports falsely-claimed that Alloun was armed with a knife and had earlier injured an Israeli. No evidence was ever presented linking Alloun with any stabbing.
A new video of Alloun’s killing confirms he presented no danger when Israel killed him. No knife is visible as the Palestinian teenager attempts to avoid the Israeli mob.
Before and after he is shot dead, more Israeli voices are heard demanding his death and then scolding the Israeli police for not executing Alloun quickly enough.
Fadi Alloun was a talented Palestinian singer, photographer and athlete who had been forced by Israel to live apart from his mother since he was two years old. Click here for more information.
17 years ago Fadi's Alloun mother went to Jordan to visit her dying father (Fadi's grandfather). On her return home to Palestine, Israel refused to allow her entry, forcibly exiling her from Palestine.
For nearly 18 years, Fadi was unable to see his mother. He could only talk to her on the phone. Click here for more information.
