ID Laws – Israel Teaches Arizona A Lesson

with one comment

Thousands of Palestinians living in the West Bank may soon be evicted or face criminal charges by Israeli authorities, the Israeli daily Haaretz has said.

An amendment to an Israeli military order on “preventing infiltration” could soon stipulate that residents of the West Bank without ID cards may now need one issued by the occupying authorities.

Anyone without such a document could either be expelled or jailed.

Haaretz said the new order would likely be used first against Palestinians in the West Bank with Gaza ID cards and the foreign spouses of Palestinians living in the territory.

Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland explains.

Israeli Naval Blockade Prevents Aid

leave a comment »

The Lybian ship “Al Marwa” left Libya last Monday for the Gazaport, carrying 3,000 tons of food, medicine and other aid. Jamal El Khodary, Palestinian Legislator and head of the Popular committee Against the Siege, stated this past Sunday that the ship would reach the Gaza port on Monday, and added that this ship is one of several Arab ships that will challenge the Israeli siege and deliver humanitarian supplies to the residents of the Gaza Strip.

Reports came in  Monday that the presence of an Israeli naval blockade caused the ship to turn back and it has since docked in an Egyptian port.

The Lybian Health Minister, Dr. Mohammad Rashed, said that the government and the people of Libya are determined to act in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and that their hospitals are available for  Palestinian patients.
