Palestinian president calls for international conference on Israel


UNITED NATIONS: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called for an international conference to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict and urged Israel to drop its opposition to a meeting that would address all outstanding issues.

He said on Wednesday the so-called Quartet of key international players trying to promote Mideast peace — the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia — should “play the role of an honest intermediary and guarantor” of the agreements reached at the conference.

Abbas made the proposal in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. His speech was read by the Palestinian U.N. observer, Riyad Mansour.

A fragile cease-fire went into effect early Sunday between the Palestinians and the Israelis, ending a five-month offensive in Gaza that has killed hundreds. Abbas said more than 510 Palestinians have been killed since June, bringing the total since September 2000 to more than 4,300 people, about a third of them children.

218 Indian Jews immigrate to Israel

Indian Jews leaving for Israel. The irony is that these people are not even born there but given citizenship. Whereas the original, indigeneous peoples of Palestine are being treated nothing more than trash.

Tel Aviv, Nov. 30 (PTI): A fresh batch of Mizo Jews, who claim to be descendants of an ancient Jewish tribe, arrived here yesterday, taking the total number of Indian jews who have immigrated to Israel over the past week to 218.

The new immigrants from India’s northeastern states call themselves as ‘Bnei Menashe’ and have arrived here in batches since the past week. Today’s batch was the fourth to arrive here.

The Bnei Menashe claim descent from the tribe of Manaseh, one of the ten tribes exiled from the land of Israel by the Assyrians over 2,700 years ago.

“Being a Jew it is our duty to be in our Homeland and I am glad I have been able to fulfill that”, PeterZokhuma, who recently adopted a Jewish name, Peertlau’, said.

Diagnosed cases of HIV/AIDS rise slightly in Israel

More HIV/AIDS patients in the so-called “land without people for a people without land”. Either Israel has a very lousy healthcare system, or the so-called “Chosen Peoples” are mired in the sin of drug abuse, promiscuity and homosexuality. Perhaps a repeat of what happened at Sodom and Gomorrah will hit the Zionists in the Holy Land soon.

The number of new HIV carriers and AIDS patients diagnosed here last year has risen somewhat, from an annual average of 322 between 2000 and 2004 to 350 cases in 2005, according to the Health Ministry.

The latest statistics, released Wednesday to mark World AIDS Day, which is held every December 1, may reflect increased infection or more people going for testing.

The World Health Organization and the United Nations AIDS prevention program UNAIDS say there are nearly 40 million people around the world who are HIV carriers or have full-blown AIDS, with 4.3 million newly infected and 2.6 million having died of the disease in 2006.

Since 1981, when the AIDS virus was first discovered, there have been 4,662 known Israeli HIV carriers and AIDS patients; 3,647 of them are still alive, while the rest either died or left the country. According to estimates, there are actually more than 5,100 carriers and AIDS patients in Israel, with about 1,500 not yet diagnosed.

WASHINGTON, DC: Former US President Jimmy Carter has said that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories is one of the world’s worst cases of oppression. In an interview to CNN’s Larry King on Monday to talk about his new book Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid, Carter said that Israeli policies in its country as well as the occupied territories have deprived Palestinians of basic human rights, and that nobody ever talks about it.

‘‘There is a clear distinction between the policies within the nation of Israel and within the occupied territories that Israel controls,” he said, “and the oppression of the Palestinians by Israeli forces in the occupied territories is horrendous.” He added that this important issue is hardly ever discussed in the US, and therefore does not get the attention it deserves.
