Terrorizing Palestinians Daily


State terror is official Israeli policy.

by Stephen Lendman

Life in Occupied Palestine is harsh, brutal, and repressive. It includes collective punishment, closed borders, economic strangulation, land theft, dispossessions, neighborhood incursions, ground and air attacks, arrests, torture, incarceration, and constant fear.

Daily reports explain. On March 27, soldiers and settlers invaded the al-Aqsa Mosque through the al-Magharba Gate. Inside they terrorized worshipers.

The previous two days, soldiers broke into Bethlehem, Hebron, Rommana village, and other West Bank homes. They ransacked them and arrested six or more residents. It happens virtually daily throughout the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, most often pre-dawn. Children are treated like adults.

For years, Gaza's suffocated under siege. On March 25, the Gisha Legal Center for Freedom of Movement headlined, "Israel prevents hairstylists and students traveling out of Gaza," saying:

Five women and two men were denied. They requested permission to participate in the Tulkarem "Palestinian Beauty and Tradition Spring Fair."

Israel's District Coordination Office (DCO) said "in view of the current political-security situation, residents of the Gaza Strip are not permitted to enter Israel other than in exceptional humanitarian cases, with an emphasis on medical cases."

Gisha wrote DCO head Colonel Khatib Mansour saying:

Three applicants are independent businesswomen. "(A)approving their application to participate in the fair is particularly important. Everywhere in the world, including the Gaza Strip, fewer opportunities are available to women. Therefore, women must be supported to aspire for economic independence so that they can contribute to the development of their societies."

In addition, DCO prevented seven Gazan female students from traveling to Al-Quds University in Abu Dis. They were invited to participate in an international technology competition. Denial again was for not being an exceptional humanitarian case.
