"The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights" (PCHR) published a list of civilian casualties of Operation "Cast Lead". This Centre which is based in the Gaza Strip, gathered comprehensive details regarding the casualties, but chose to distort the findings. Instead of recording militants (meaning terrorists – SP) fighting for terror organizations as "militants", it chose to record them as "civilians".
This same Centre claims that: "The Zionist Occupation Forces Murder Civilians". It is therefore not at all surprising, that this Centre also spreads lies with the specific aim of demonizing the Israel Defense Forces. To date, the media and human rights organizations have completely ignored the IDF's statements regarding the sum of militant casualties. Instead they choose to perpetuate the lie that "most casualties were civilians".
Cross-checking the claim with the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, reveals some astonishing truths. However, it is only one of Hamas's militant wings. Hamas has in fact three militant wings: the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the Executive Police Force, and the "Morbiton". Not only did the three militant wings of Hamas participate in the combat; the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades participated as well.
The inevitable conclusions are therefore:
A. The majority of the casualties during Operation "Cast Lead" were terrorists.
B. "The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights" (PCHR) blatantly lied and distorted the findings.
Left Aghast at Arrest of 'Civil Rights' Group Chief

(Israelnationalnews.com) MK Dov Henin (Hadash) and New Israel Fund Director Rachel Liel voiced outrage at the arrest Friday of Haggai Elad, Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), at a demonstration against Jewish life in Jerusalem's Shimon HaTzaddik neighborhood.
MK Henin wants the Knesset's Interior Committee convened post-haste in order to discuss the arrest of Elad and 14 others at the demonstration, which took place one day after National Union Knesset members toured the neighborhood. The Jerusalem Police said in response that the demonstration was an illegal protest by anarchists and leftists who ignored police instructions to break up. "If the Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel feels free to participate in an illegal demonstration, he should not be surprised that he is arrested," the police added.
Liel, who heads the New Israel Fund which finances ACRI, asked in a statement: "Who gave the order to add Israel to the group of states in which human rights activists are arrested for their activity? After the arrest of the Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Israeli citizens need to place this question before the Minister of Public Security and the Prime Minister. The hurried use of the tool of arrest in order to silence civil protest, without there being any violence, should be of concern to all those who could be involved in civil protest, from all ends of the political spectrum."
Left wing groups have been holding licensed demonstrations every Friday over the past three months to protest renewed Jewish presence at the ancient Jerusalem neighborhood of Shimon HaTzaddik. This Friday's demonstration was not licensed because police had already granted a license to another left endorsed event on the previous evening – a mixed Arab-Jewish dance party.

Left-Right Graffiti War at Shdema

(Israelnationalnews.com) Nationalist activists were unpleasantly surprised Friday when they discovered that anarchists, left-wingers and international activists covered many of the structures at the Shdema site with spray painted messages. The nationalist activists believe that security forces – who are stationed nearby – allowed the left-wing radicals were to carry out the vandalism for several hours, unhindered.
The nationalists had arrived at Shdema on Friday as they do every week, as part of an ongoing effort to make sure the recently abandoned military base site does not fall into enemy hands. While Dr. Tzipi Rainy gave a lecture about author Naomi Frankel, the Shdema Youth repainted the entire base, erasing the graffiti. This was preceded by a debate about whether or not it was right to erase biblical verses that contained the name of HaShem. Leading activists Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katzover convinced others that the writing should be erased.
"There is no doubt that they were aiming to dishonor Israel," they stated. "Everyone realizes that just as we would not allow a stranger to enter our living room and paint on the walls, even if they painted biblical verses, this is doubly true in this case. The Arabs are raising their heads because of the atmosphere of retreat in the country. Therefore we could not content ourselves with erasing the graffiti and had no choice but to respond in kind. Shdema activists went down to the illegal structures the Arabs built at the foot of Shdema and spray painted all of the Arabs' illegal structures from within and without, on the walls, doors and floors."
Matar and Katzover said that an IDF officer on the spot had vowed "revenge" against the Jews, saying "I personally will make sure you do not ascend to Shdema again." The Council for Shdema and Women in Green therefore call upon "the entire nation of Israel" to come to Shdema next Friday and show massive presence. Dr. Hagi Ben-Artzi will be giving a lecture at 9:00 AM Friday on "The Land of Israel in Kabbalistic Writings."
