If you find the title of this post hard to swallow, have a look at
“When it announced his death, Israeli Prison Service claimed Arafat – who leaves a pregnant widow and two children – died from cardiac arrest. However, the subsequent autopsy found no blood clot in his heart. In fact, the autopsy concluded that Arafat, who turned 30 this year, was in fine cardiovascular health.
What the final autopsy did find, however, was that Jaradat had been pummelled by repeated blows to his chest and body and had sustained a total of six broken bones in his spine, arms and legs; his lips lacerated; his face badly bruised.”
Most people would call this torture and murder, but if you are israeli and the victim is palestinian, then this qualifies as a ‘cardiac arrest’.
Desecrating and destroying cemeteries and then having the nerve to say that a “Museum of Tolerance” is being built! Only the zionists could come up with such acts. Stripped of their humanity, bereft of all moral values, that is the reality of Zionism. Special shout out to the “US based Simon Wiesenthal Centre” which is the sponsor of this disgrace. Despicable israel and their cohorts such as the SWC.
… for voting against granting observer state status to Palestine.

United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Richard Falk has recommended a boycott and legal initiatives by civil society against companies which are facilitating israeli crimes against Palestinians.
A United Nations independent expert today called on the world body’s General Assembly, as well as civil society, to take action against Israeli and international businesses that are profiting from Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory.
“My main recommendation is that the businesses highlighted in the report – as well as the many other businesses that are profiting from the Israeli settlement enterprise – should be boycotted, until they bring their operations into line with international human rights and humanitarian law and standards,” the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Richard Falk, said in a news release issued as he presented a report on his work to the Assembly.
Highlighting the activities of companies such as Caterpillar Incorporated of the United States, Veolia Environment of France, G4S of the United Kingdom, the Dexia Group of Belgium, Ahava of Israel, the Volvo Group of Sweden, the Riwal Holding Group of the Netherlands, Elbit Systems of Israel, Hewlett Packard of the USA, Mehadrin of Israel, Motorola of the USA, Assa Abloy of Sweden, and Cemex of Mexico, the Special Rapporteur noted that a wide range of Israeli and international businesses are involved in the establishment and maintenance of the Israeli settlements.
