10 décembre, 2013


 

Aux soins de l'Honorable Stephen Harper,

Premier ministre du Canada,

 

Monsieur le premier ministre,

 

C'est avec consternation que je prends connaissance de votre visite en Afrique du Sud en compagnie d'une imposante délégation canadienne, telle que M. Brian Mulroney, M. Jean Chrétien, M. Joe Clark, Mme Sheila Coops, ainsi que plusieurs autres dignitaires canadienNNEs dans le but le plus noble d'honorer la mémoire de feu Nelson Mandela, le père spirituel de l'Afrique du Sud.

 

Je dois vous avouer, en contrepartie la suspicion qui m’habite en ce qui a trait à la sincérité de ce geste de compassion à l'égard d'une personne qui, il n'y a pas si longtemps, était considéré comme un terroriste par le gouvernement du Canada au moment où Madiba, combattait l'Apartheid que soutenait ouvertement de nombreux pays occidentaux dont le Canada.

 

Dans le même ordre d'idée, vous avez mentionné lors d'un point de presse, que M. Mandela était un exemple de lutte pour les peuples qui tentent de se libérer contre les violations des droits humains et des discriminations dans le monde. Certes, Monsieur Harper, il est sûrement plus facile pour votre gouvernement d'évoquer de grands discours à l'étranger alors qu'ici même au Canada, votre responsabilité envers les derniers projets omnibus C-35 et C-48 ne peut pas être plus incriminante quant aux moyens vicieux misent en œuvre par votre gouvernement dans le but premier de compromettre les droits ancestraux des Premières Nations du Canada. Les divers gouvernements canadiens dont le vôtre ont malicieusement comploté à la  création d'un État d'Apartheid en sol canadien au fil des décennies. Le mouvement Idle No More est un exemple tacite de ce mécontentement généralisé par les nations autochtones d’ici.

 

Par ailleurs, sur le plan de l'Apartheid, la population canadienne apprenait plus tôt en décembre l’intention affichée de vous rendre en Israël afin de resserrer les liens avec cet État champion toute catégorie des violations des droits humains depuis la création de l’État d’ Israël en 1948. En effet, Le Fond national juif (FNJ), un organe qui devrait être enregistré à même titre que vous l’avez fait à propos du Mouvement Hezbollah sur la liste noire des groupes terroristes, vous a accueilli en grande pompe le 2 décembre lors d'un banquet organisé en votre honneur dans sa volonté avoué de ramasser des fonds afin de chasser près de 40,000 Bédouins, le peuple autochtone millénaire de cette région du sud de la Palestine, région connue sous le nom du Nékab palestinien. Cette invitation par le FNJ, auquel vous avez consenti par votre présence donc cautionné délibérément l’État d’Israël dans sa politique raciste consistant à créer un refuge pour oiseaux nommé en votre honneur. 

 

Décidément, Très honorable Monsieur Harper, vous ne manquez pas d'audace lorsqu’il est venu le temps de reconnaître les honneurs pour les uns et d'entretenir le mépris le plus absolu pour les autres et tout cela en même temps. Des millions de QuébécoiSEs et de CanadienNEs se sentent outrés par cette attitude méprisante à laquelle s’identifie votre gouvernement. Cela illustre à quel point votre gouvernance n’est pas en concordance avec les valeurs de partage et de solidarité qui identifie les gens d’ici depuis des siècles.

 

Ainsi, lors de votre prochaine visite en sol israélien, au début de l’an prochain, surtout, prenez le temps de visiter le peuple palestinien de la Cisjordanie, le peuple conquit lors de la mainmise de l’ensemble du territoire palestinien en 1967 où près de 500,000 réfugiés ont dû fuir les massacres perpétrés par l’armée israélienne ainsi que par les colons juifs armés par l’occident à cette époque. Aujourd’hui, ils sont près de 3 millions de personnes vivants emmurés à l’intérieur de palissades bétonnées dont l’industrie canadienne s’est si généreusement portée volontaire, à titre d’une contribution caritative, à créer des Bantoustans, comme à l’époque de l’Afrique du Sud occupés par les Afrikaners, soit des villages arabes assiégés entouré de villages de colons juifs armés par l’armée d’Israël avec la bénédiction du Canada.

 

En même temps, vous pourriez également visiter la Bande de Gaza, la plus grande prison de civils au monde. L’endroit sur terre où le mot génocide ne pourrait être plus vrai. Certes, il est préférable d’aviser les autorités militaires auparavant puisqu’il est imprévisible par moments de devenir une cible aléatoire selon les humeurs  du moment et ainsi recevoir un obus à partir d’un DRONE invisible du haut du ciel. L’attraction la plus populaire consiste à prendre des clichés de la souffrance la plus extrême des personnes les plus vulnérables tels les enfants, les vieillards ainsi que les femmes.

 

En espérant que votre voyage en Afrique du Sud ainsi que celui prévue en Israël dans un proche avenir puisse vous porter à la réflexion sur les liens que vous entretenez avec les partenaires politiques qui s’abreuvent du mépris des plus vulnérables. Ces partenaires qui sont les votre

Très honorable Stephen Harper, premier ministre du Canada.

Monsieur le Très honorable Stephen Harper, Premier ministre du Canada,

Je vous envoie en fichier attachée une lettre qui vous est adressée à propos de la visite commémorative de la délégation canadienne aux obsèques de M. Nelson Mandela. Par ailleurs, je vous indique, en c.c. les Partis politiques auxquels j'ai pris soins de faire suivre cette lettre ainsi, pour les Partis politiques de l'Assemblée nationale du Québec, en guise de réflexion quant à la motion reconduite chaque année afin de souligner la naissance de l'État d'Israel tout en occultant le massacre du peuple palestinien de 1948 connu sous le nom de la NAKBA, la consternation.

Jointes à cette lettre, des documents afin détailler les propos recueillis à titre d'argumentaires.

Merci ,

M. Jean Léger, membre de la Coalition pour la Justice et la Paix en Palestine.

B'Tselem's 2011 annual report on human rights in the Occupied Territories

B'Tselem's 2011 annual report on human rights in the Occupied Territories

21 Mar 2012

Sharp increase in killing of Palestinian civilians not involved in hostilities in 2011

There was a sharp increase in the number of uninvolved Palestinians killed by the Israeli security forces in the Gaza Strip in 2011. There was also an increase in the number of Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians, compared to 2010. The casualty figures appear in the annual report of the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem, published today (Wed. 21.3.2012). Note: The data does not include recent events in the Gaza Strip.
The annual report surveys the broad spectrum of issues regarding the Israeli authorities' human rights record in the West Bank and Gaza Strip over the past year, the 44th year of the Israeli occupation. An interactive version [2] of the report is available online and distributed through social media.
Jessica Montell, B'Tselem Executive Director, said: "Human rights violations are inherent in a military occupation and the protracted nature of Israel's occupation only exacerbates human rights violations. Our job at B'Tselem is to ensure the fullest respect for human rights in the present circumstances, but it is clear that as long as the occupation continues, Palestinians will never fully enjoy their rights".

The Human Toll: Killing of Palestinian and Israeli Civilians

Palestinians killed by Israeli security forces

From 1 January-31 December 2011, Israeli security forces killed 115 Palestinians, 18 of them minors (under age 18). The data does not include recent events in the Gaza Strip.
One hundred and five Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip. Of these, 37 were civilians who took no part in hostilities, 49 took part in hostilities, and another 14 were the object of targeted killing. Regarding the remaining four persons, B'Tselem does not know if they were taking part in hostilities. In addition, one Palestinian policeman was killed while in a building belonging to the Hamas navy. Details for 2011 and 2010:
Palestinians killed in the Gaza Strip

2010 2011 Did not take part in hostilities 18 37 Took part in hostilities 46 49 Palestinian police 0 1 Object of targeted killing 2 14 Unknown 2 4 Total 68 105 There are no ongoing hostilities in the West Bank, so it is irrelevant to classify Palestinian fatalities according to whether or not they took part in hostilities. In 2011, Israeli security forces killed 10 Palestinians in the West Bank: one in an exchange of gunfire with soldiers, two after they apparently tried to attack soldiers at a checkpoint, four during arrest operations, one while driving his car, one by soldiers’ gunfire after Palestinians threw stones at them, and one as a result of a soldier firing a tear-gas canister that hit him in the head from short range while he was throwing stones. In addition, a Palestinian minor, resident of East Jerusalem, was killed during clashes with security forces and with security guards of the Jewish settlement in Silwan. The identity of the shooter remains unknown.

Israeli and foreign civilians killed by Palestinians

In 2011, Palestinians killed 11 Israeli civilians (in 2010, Palestinians killed 5 Israeli and two foreign civilians and three members of the Israeli security forces).

Eight were killed in the West Bank:

Five members of the Fogel family – the parents and three of their children, aged 11, 4, and an infant – were stabbed and shot to death in their home in the Itamar settlement; A man was shot by a Palestinian policeman when he entered the area of Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus; and a father and his infant son were killed as a result of stones thrown at the car in which they were traveling on Route 60.
Another Israeli civilian, was shot to death in the Jenin refugee camp – the identity of the shooter and the background of the shooting remain unclear.

Three Israeli civilians were killed inside Israel:

Two in rocket attacks from Gaza – one in Beersheva and the other in Ashkelon – and a 16-year-old boy was killed by an anti-tank missile fired from Gaza at a bus inside the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council.
In addition, six Israeli civilians and one Israeli soldier were killed in an attack near Eilat. The identity of the perpetrators has not been announced. In an exchange of gunfire in that incident, several persons, whose identity is not known to B'Tselem, were killed, among them apparently some of the perpetrators. The soldier was killed by friendly fire. Another soldier was killed, also by friendly fire, in an exchange of gunfire with Palestinians along the border with Gaza.
Two foreign civilians were killed: one was abducted and hanged by Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip, and the other was killed by an explosive charge laid by Palestinians in Jerusalem.

Palestinians killed by Israeli civilians

Two Palestinians were killed by settler gunfire in the West Bank. In both cases, settlers went to the vicinity of Palestinian villages and apparently opened fire after Palestinians had thrown stones at them. A third Palestinian, a resident of East Jerusalem, was stabbed to death in the center of Jerusalem by an Israeli civilian.

Death penalty by Palestinian Authorities

In 2011, Palestinian Authority courts in the West Bank sentenced one person to death, and Hamas courts in the Gaza Strip sentenced eight persons to death (one of them an Israeli, who was tried and sentenced in absentia). Hamas executed three persons last year.

Other notable statistic and developments included in the report

Palestinian minors in detention

Statistics

According to the Israel Prison Service, in 2011, some two hundred Palestinian minors were in the custody of security forces at any given time. The number of minors in prison has been dropping steadily. By way of comparison, in 2008, an average of about 320 minors were incarcerated each month.
These figures do not include minors detained for questioning and released without being prosecuted. The authorities could not provide figures for such detentions. According to the military court’s figures, in 2010, 650 indictments were filed against minors, 40 percent of them for stone-throwing with no other offenses. Other minors were accused, among other things, of throwing petrol bombs and of belonging to an unlawful organization. According to figures of the IDF Spokesperson, in 2010, eight minors were convicted of serious crimes, among them the attempted assault of a soldier. In 2011, one minor was convicted of five counts of homicide – the killing of five members of the Fogel family from Itamar – and of other crimes arising out of the same incident. The court sentenced him to five consecutive life sentences, and an additional five years for the other offenses he committed.
A welcome change in the age of minority for Palestinians
Israeli law defines a minor as a person under 18 years old. This same definition has been applied to Palestinians in the West Bank only since September 2011. Prior to that, the relevant age was 16. Although the change is welcome, Palestinian minors still are not provided the protections granted under Israeli and international law.

The Gaza Strip

Restrictions on export and detachment from the West Bank

In May 2011, Egypt declared that the Rafah crossing would remain open permanently for Palestinians to cross. The opening of the crossing improved Gazans’ freedom of movement, and most people can now leave for Egypt and from there to other countries, without Israel’s approval. However, Rafah Crossing does not enable the transfer of goods, so that Gazans still rely on Israel for imports and exports. In addition, residents of the Gaza Strip cannot reach the West Bank via Rafah Crossing because Israel does not allow them to enter the West Bank via Jordan.
According to B’Tselem’s figures, in 2011, 223 trucks (carrying about 500 tons) of strawberries, 12 trucks (34 tons) of peppers, three trucks (11 tons) of cherry tomatoes, and 9,578,040 flowers left the Gaza Strip. These quantities are miniscule compared to the amount of exports prior to the siege and clearly do not meet the population’s needs. In addition, Israel permits exports only to Europe, and not to the West Bank or to Israel. Export of produce to Europe is barely profitable, and is only possible thanks to the involvement of the Dutch government, which administers and finances the project.

Gilad Shalit goes free

In October 2011, five years and four months after Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit’s abduction, Hamas and Israel reached agreement on his release. On October 18, Shalit was taken to Egypt and then, upon the release of 450 Palestinian prisoners, brought to Israel. In the second stage of the agreement, carried out on 18 December 2011, Israel released another 550 Palestinian prisoners.

Settlements

Rapid construction after the freeze: 40 percent of all government housing starts are in occupied territory
In the first seven months of 2011, the pace of housing starts in settlements picked up. The Israeli Housing Ministry initiated 90 housing starts in settlements and 1,399 in the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. The total (1,489) amounts to 39 percent of all housing starts by the ministry. During this period, the construction of 351 apartments in settlements and 618 in the Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem were completed, all under the initiative of the Housing Ministry. This total (969 apartments) was 48 percent of all apartments built and completed by the ministry in this seven-month period.

Extensive Construction Plans in East Jerusalem

In 2011, Israel increased its efforts to expand Jewish neighborhoods and establish new ones in East Jerusalem, as well as build a new national park there. These plans, if implemented, will sever the Palestinian neighborhoods from the rest of the West Bank.

Restrictions on Palestinian Construction

Home demolition in Area C

According to B'Tselem documentation, in 2011, the Civil Administration demolished 176 homes built without a permit in Area C of the West Bank, (in which Palestinians find it virtually impossible to receive permits) leaving 1,138 Palestinians homeless, including 532 minors. This is an increase over the previous year, when the Civil Administration demolished 108 housing units, leaving homeless 663 Palestinians (among them 317 minors). Almost half of the demolitions in the past two years were carried out in the Jordan Valley.

East Jerusalem

In 2011, Israeli authorities demolished 20 homes in East Jerusalem, in which 132 Palestinians (among them 72 minors) lived. By comparison, in 2010, the municipality demolished 22 homes, in which 191 (94 minors) lived.

Law enforcement on settlers who harm Palestinians and their property

Lenient police treatment of Israelis who harm Palestinians

The Israel Police, which is charged with investigating settler violence against Palestinians, does not properly investigate the claims of violence and does not carry out its law-enforcement obligations. From September 2000 to the end of 2011, B'Tselem submitted 352 complaints to the Israel Police, demanding to know if investigations had been opened in cases in which Israelis harmed Palestinians or damaged their property, and if so, the status of the investigations. The complaints dealt with such actions as gunfire, assault, destruction of property, forcing people off their land, threats, theft of crops, and torching of fields.
In 250 cases, an investigation had been opened, but only 29 had resulted in an indictment. Of the remaining cases investigated, 137 files were closed with no measures being taken against anyone involved in the incident. In 67 cases, the investigation was still ongoing, and in 15 cases, the investigation file had been referred to a state attorney. In another two cases, B'Tselem filed appeals, which are pending.
Of the remaining 102 cases, B'Tselem was informed that in 80 cases, the police did not open an investigation, primarily because the person injured did not file a formal complaint, though the police are required by law to investigate every time they hear of a suspected crime. In 16 cases, B'Tselem received no response to its complaint. One case was still being processed and in five cases, the file could not be located.

Soldiers standing idly by

B'Tselem has documented some cases where security forces were present during incidents of settler violence yet did not intervene; in a few cases, they even took part in the violence. From September 2000 to the end of 2011, B’Tselem submitted 57 complaints of incidents in which it was suspected that security forces stood idly by during acts of violence. The responses received from the Military Advocate General Corps indicated that a criminal investigation been opened in only four cases (and in two of these, the file was closed without taking any measures against the soldiers involved). In 30 cases, it was decided not to open an investigation, in 12 cases B'Tselem was informed that its inquiry was still being handled, and in five cases, B'Tselem received no reply. Another four cases were referred to other military bodies for handling, one case was dealt with in a disciplinary hearing, and one file could not be located.

Israel is planning to move ahead with another 3,360 new settler homes in the West Bank.

 

 

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel is planning to move ahead with another 3,360 new settler homes in the West Bank, Haaretz newspaper reported on Thursday, quoting an MP from the ruling right-wing Likud party.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Netanyahu's government will begin advancing a series of construction plans in east Jerusalem and the West Bank to the tune of some 5,000 new housing units, in an effort to 'offset' the release of Palestinian prisoners earlier this week," the paper said.
The figure includes the construction of 1,500 new homes in East Jerusalem  announced after Israel freed 26 long-serving prisoners in line with its commitments to US-backed peace talks. But the report also detailed plans for another 3,360 homes which are to be pushed through various stages of the planning process.
The report said the government would market land "for the immediate construction of 860 housing units in settlements in the major blocs" naming Ariel, Maaleh Adumim, Givat Zeev, Beitar Ilit, Kareni Shomron and Elkana.Plans for another 1,400 new homes in both the blocs and in isolated settlements in the West Bank.
PLO official Hanan Ashrawi also condemned the move, saying settlement expansion is "willfully and flagrantly violating international law and the requirements for peace.""The Israeli occupation is exposing its true intentions of creating ‘greater Israel’ rather than a two-state solution. The Israeli government has proven once again that it is not a partner for peace nor a member of the international community that respects the global rule of law."
Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki said that the PA is considering going to international courts to file complaints against new Israeli settlements.
British Minister Hugh Robertson said in a statement that the UK regrets the recent decision to expand settlements, adding that "the UK
has consistently condemned settlements, which are illegal under international law, undermine trust and threaten the viability of the two-state solution."
The previous round of negotiations collapsed in September 2010 in a bitter dispute over Israel's construction on land seized and occupied in the 1967 Six Day War.

                                                                                           Israël déterminé à construire en Cisjordanie  3 360  nouvelles maisons pour les colons.


 

 

 

JERUSALEM (AFP)  Le quotidien Haaretz a reporté que, selon un membre du parlement du parti de droite Likud, Israël va construire pour les colons 3 360 nouvelles résidences en Cisjordanie. Pour compenser la libération de 26 prisonniers palestiniens détenus depuis longtemps, le gouvernement de Netanyahu va investir dans un développement de 5000 unités d’habitation à Jérusalem et Cisjordanie.

Le rapport a ajouté que le gouvernement allait décider de l’emplacement de 860 unités d’habitation pour une construction immédiate. Elles agrandiront les habitations existantes dans Ariel, Maaleh Adumin, Givat Zeev, Beitar Ilit, Kareni Shomron et Elkana. Les colonies isolées en Cisjordanie et dans d’autres sites déjà occupés se verront attribuer 1,400 nouvelles résidences. L’expansion des colonies est une action préméditée en contradiction flagrante avec la loi internationale et un obstacle à la paix selon H. Hashrawi du PLO qui ajoute. Israël montre au grand jour ses intentions de créer un grand Israël plutôt que deux États. Israël n’est pas un partenaire de paix ni un État qui respecte la loi internationale.

Le ministre des Affaires Extérieures, Mr Riyad al-Malki a annoncé que l’Autorité Palestinienne pense présenter une plainte devant une cour internationale sur le sujet des nouvelles colonies israéliennes.
Selon le ministre britannique, Hugh Robertson, le Royaume Uni condamne les nouvelles colonies qui sont illégales, détruisent la confiance et menacent la possibilité même d’en arriver à l’installation de deux États entre Israël et la Palestine
Une  conciliation impossible à obtenir concernant les constructions israéliennes sur la terre saisie et occupée lors de la guerre de six jours de 1967 a mis fin aux négociations de septembre 2010.

Seguem três textos de Lenin sobre a Revolução Russa indicados para o curso Marxismo e Revolução:

“Os que estão assustados com a falência do velho e os que lutam pelo novo” - 9 de Janeiro de 1918.

http://www.marxists.org/portugues/lenin/1918/01/09.htm

 

“Para o Quarto Aniversário da Revolução de Outubro” – 14 de outubro de 1921

http://www.marxists.org/portugues/lenin/1921/10/14.htm        

 

“Sobre a nossa revolução” – 17 de janeiro de 1923

http://www.marxists.org/portugues/lenin/1923/01/17.htm

 
"Outros outubros virão..."

  

   
Há 96 anos, o povo russo, sob a liderança do Partido bolchevique, abalou o mundo com a perspectiva de que sim era possível colocar por terra o domínio da exploração capitalista e da barbárie que lhe é inerente. Seguindo a máxima de Marx, não basta interpretar o mundo, é preciso transformá-lo.
