Trump’s Mideast envoys moving to next phaseUri Savir - Al-Monitor - Is launching peace negotiations currently possible? Judging by the two parties’ positions on the substance of permanent status issues, the answer is probably negative. Yet the PLO official may be right that such a process might take place after all, given the domestic political problems of Trump, Netanyahu and Abbas.- rh 23/8/2017

For Arab citizens, `Jewish and democratic` means demographic warOrly Noy - +972 - While much of the world justly focuses on land theft in the occupied territories, we must not forget that Israel uses the pretense of ‘Jewish and democratic’ to actively dispossess its own Arab citizens.-rh23/8/2017

Im Tirzu, Israeli movement ‘with fascist elements,’ to meet at Jerusalem center with links to Reform movementYossi Gurvitz - Mondoweiss - As Im Tirzu was in the vanguard of the assault on human rights NGOs and academic freedom in Israel, it is surprising and disheartening news to learn its conference will be hosted at a conference center owned by the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ), which is dedicated to strengthening Reform Jewish life. is stranger still when you examine the list of speakers: it includes Dr. Mordechai Keidar, an orientalist who became notorious when suggesting raping the sisters or mothers of Palestinian terrorists as a terrorism counter-measure (Hebrew). The conference will also host the singer Ariel Zilber, noted for his support of Meir Kahane (his greatest hit in the last decade being “Kahane was right”) and of Elor Azariya, the soldier recently convicted of killing a defenseless Palestinian attacker.-rh23/8/2017

With friends like Putin and Trump, Israel doesn`t need enemiesShimon Shiffer - Ynetnews - Netanyahu is not expected to get help from his friend Trump—the US under his presidency has no presence in the civil war in Syria, nor does it show any particular interest in aiding its allies. While the Americans did deliver a blow to Syrian regime targets after Assad used chemical weapons, all Trump is really doing is continuing his predecessor Obama`s policy: Limited involvement in conflict zones. And so for all the red lines Israel has set, it stands alone in defending them. During the fighting in Syria, Israel made it clear any Iranian attempt to transfer missiles and other weapons to Hezbollah would be met with a harsh response. Outgoing Air Force commander Amir Eshel even revealed IAF fighter jets carried out over a hundred airstrikes, destroying weapons convoys en route to Lebanon.-rh 23/8/2017

The war on Israeli BDS supportersAmnon Portugaly - +972 - These days Gilad Erdan, Israel’s minister of public security and strategic affairs, is promoting a new law that would exclude his ministry from governmental oversight.

He also boasts that the EU is a customer for Israel’s weapons industry, particularly drones." ca 4/8/2017

A cross sectional study of the relationship between the exposure of pregnant women to military attacks in 2014 in Gaza and the load of heavy metal contaminants in the hair of mothers and newborns BMJ Journals - "Objective Metal contamination of humans in war areas has rarely been investigated. Weaponry’s heavy metals become environmentally stable war remnants and accumulate in living things. They also pose health risks in terms of prenatal intake, with potential long term risks for reproductive and children’s health. We studied the contribution of military attacks to the load of 23 metals in the hair of Palestinian women in the Gaza Strip, who were pregnant at the time of the military attacks in 2014, and their newborns. We compared the metal load in the mothers with values for adult hair from outside the war area (RHS) as the reference. We investigated heavy metals trans-passing in utero, and assessed if the heavy metal intake could derive from sources unrelated to the war." ca4/8/2017

Are Israelis indifferent to corruption around Netanyahu?Akiva Eldar - Al-Monitor - Netanyahu, for his part, succeeded in making corruption much more sophisticated than ever before, all while undermining the pillars of democracy. But given the heavy "background noise" emanating from police investigations against him to every Israeli household, the guardians of democracy and the judicial system may just end Netanyahu’s rule before he destroys them.-rh 16/8/2017

Sponge rounds, rubber bullets, and tear gas — how Israel’s non-lethal munitions can killSheren Khalel - Mondoweiss - It was the middle of a cold October night in 2015 when an Israeli army jeep came driving through Aida refugee camp blaring a message through its loudspeaker “People of Aida refugee camp, we are the occupation forces,” the message began in Arabic. “If you throw stones, we will hit you with gas until you all die. The children, the youth, the old people – you will all die. We won’t leave any of you alive … Go home or we will gas you until you die. Your families, your children, everyone – we will kill you.”-rh16/8/2017
