Nabi Samuil i linkovi

Između ilegalnih izraelskih naselja Giv'at Ze'ev, Giv'on i Ramot nalazi se malo palestinsko selo Nabi Samuil, koje Zid još uvijek nije uspio uništiti. Jedini izlaz iz sela vodi na aparthejdsku cestu 436 kojom se smiju koristiti isključivo Židovi, odnosno nitko iz sela Nabi Samuil. Danas mještani mogu samo doći do kontrolne točke Ramot koja se nalazi na cesti 436. Na kontrolnoj točki im je, ovisno o raspoloženju vojnika, dopušteno ili ne da odu do susjedne enklave iz koje mogu nastaviti put do Ramalle ili u nekom drugom smjeru. Nitko izvana ne može doći u selo i posjetiti mještane. Samo osobe koje imaju osobnu iskaznicu na kojoj piše da su stanovnici Nabi Samuila mogu ući u selo. Kad izgradnja Zida oko enklava Biddu i Bir Nabala bude dovršena, mještani sela Nabi Samuil živjet će doslovno u zatvoru, jer će selo biti zatvoreno sa svih strana. (Izvor: New Profile)

Zionist Nationalist Myth Of Enforced Exile
Then there is the question of the exile of 70 AD. There has been no real research into this turning point in Jewish history, the cause of the diaspora. And for a simple reason: the Romans never exiled any nation from anywhere on the eastern seaboard of the Mediterranean. Apart from enslaved prisoners, the population of Judea continued to live on their lands, even after the destruction of the second temple. Some converted to Christianity in the 4th century, while the majority embraced Islam during the 7th century Arab conquest.

Gideon Levy: The Shin Bet's academic freedom
Today there is hardly a university that does not offer special courses for officers, pilots and secret agents. As such, all it takes for students of the National Security College to receive a master's degree in political science from Haifa University is two classes a week for one semester. Pilots receive a bachelor's degree at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev after one year's study, while Shin Bet operatives receive a B.A. from Bar-Ilan University after a mere 16 months

"I pity you for becoming murderers"
I remember you. I remember your confused face when you stood above my head and wouldn't let people come to my aid. I remember how my voice grew weaker, when I said to you: 'Be humane and let my parents help me.' I keep all those pictures in my head. How I lay on the ground, trying to get up but unable. How I fought my shortness of breath, which was caused by the blood that was collecting in my lungs, and the voice that was weakened because my diaphragm was hurt. I won't hide from you that despite this, I had pity for them. I felt that I was strong, because I had powers I didn't know about before.

US Deserter Feared Torture Orders
"It's a soldier's obligation to say 'no' if their commander is doing things that are criminally complicit," Jemley, now 42, said in a recent interview in Toronto. "I think everyone is agreeing now that torture is really what has been going on ... I have every reason to believe that from my small pool that I belong to, with my credentials, that I'd be ordered to do such things."

U.S. Military Is Keeping Secrets About Female Soldiers' 'Suicides'
The photographs revealed that Lavena, barely five feet tall and weighing less than 100 pounds, had been struck in the face with a blunt instrument, perhaps a weapon stock. Her nose was broken and her teeth knocked backward. One elbow was distended. The back of her clothes contained debris, indicating she had been dragged. The photographs of her disrobed body showed bruises, scratch marks and teeth imprints on the upper part of her body. The right side of her back as well as her right hand had been burned, apparently from a flammable liquid poured on her and then lighted. Photographs of her genital area revealed massive bruising and lacerations. A corrosive liquid had been poured into her genital area, probably to destroy DNA evidence of sexual assault.
