    القوانين "الحمساوية" تهدّد المدارس المسيحية في غزّة وتحول القطاع إلى إمارة طالبانية!

    يؤرق تطبيق قراري الفصل والتأنيث في إطار قانون التعليم الجديد، الذي أقرّته الحكومة المقالة في غزة أخيراً، مضجع المسيحيين، ويشكل خطراً على طبيعة سير مؤسساتهم التعليمية وميزانيتها وثقافتها المحفّزة على الاختلاط في قاعات الدرس وأماكن العبادة، ما سيدفع بهم إلى إغلاق أبوابها بوجه طلبتها المسلمين والمسيحيين على حدٍ سواء.

    ويقول المدير المالي لمدارس البطريركية في فلسطين سامر بدره لـ«الأخبار»: «سينعكس تطبيق قانون التعليم الجديد سلباً على حال المؤسسات المسيحية في القطاع، حيث سيُرغم المسيحيين على إقامة مبانٍ جديدة، وتعيين موظفين جدد من أجل الالتزام بقراري الفصل والتأنيث، وهو أمرٌ لا تتحمله ميزانيتنا المتواضعة نظراً لعدم ربحية المؤسسات المسيحية التعليمية التابعة للكنيسة»، مشدداً على عدم إمكانية تنفيذ الفصل بين الجنسين لاعتبارات كثيرة، أهمها رسالة البطريركية المتعلقة باحترام الاختلاط ودمج الجنسين في كافة النشاطات.
    وذكّر بدره بأنّ مسألة تأنيث المدارس المتعلّقة بمنع المعلمات من تدريس طلابهن الذكور والمعلمين من تدريس طالباتهم الإناث من الصف الخامس فما فوق، ستعرقل تطوير المسيرة التعليمية، محذراً من نشوب صراع حقيقي في حال التعنت بتنفيذ القرارات الجديدة.
    كما أشار الى أن تمرير القانون وإلزام المدارس المسيحية به سيفرز عواقب وخيمة على مسألة ضمان حرية المعتقدات، «وسيعمل على توتير العلاقة بين المسلمين والمسيحيين التي لم تعكّر صفوها أي شائبة بعد سيطرة حماس على قطاع غزة»، آملاً منها عدم الإساءة لهذه العلاقة والتراجع عن تطبيق القانون تجنباً للإشكاليات. وأكّد عقد جلسات قريبة بين كبار رجال الدين المسيحيين ورئيس وزراء الحكومة المقالة، إسماعيل هنية، للوصول إلى حلول ترضي الطرفين وتضمن عدم سريان قانون التعليم في المدارس المسيحية الخاصة.
    من جهة ثانية، نفى بدره ما تداوله الموقع الإلكتروني لصحيفة «إسرائيل اليوم» العبرية، بخصوص صدور تعليمات جديدة عن وزارة التربية والتعليم في الحكومة المقالة، منعت بموجبها الطلاب المسلمين من الالتحاق بالمدارس المسيحية في غزّة.
    كما أكدت وزارة التعليم عدم صحة هذا الخبر، ونفته نفياً قاطعاً على لسان مدير العلاقات العامة والإعلام فيها معتصم الميناوي، الذي قال لـ«الأخبار» إن: «ما أوردته الصحيفة الإسرائيلية عارٍ عن الصحة، وليس إلا محض افتراء ومحاولة لإشعال الفتنة بين المسلمين والمسيحيين»، مشدداً على أن هذا الهدف الذي يسعى العدو لتحقيقه لن يحصل بتاتاً.
    وأكد أن الوزارة تقدّم كل الدعم للمدارس المسيحية، ولا تفرق في المعاملة بينها وبين المدارس الأخرى. وبخصوص مخاوف المسيحيين من تطبيق القانون الجديد، أوضح أن «الوزارة لم تتعمد الإضرار بهم، فهي ليست سوى جهة تنفيذية عليها أن تلتزم بهذا القانون الذي أقرّه المجلس التشريعي بالقراءة الثالثة واعتمده مجلس الوزراء»، موضحاً أن وزير التعليم أسامة المزيني «لن يطبّقه رزمةً واحدة، ولن يتم فرضه بالقوة».
    وبيّن الميناوي أنّ «بيئة قطاع غزّة المحافظة لا تحبّذ الاختلاط، وتدعم الفصل بين الجنسين»، مؤكّداً أن «غالبية سكان غزّة أثنوا على القانون حيث لم ينتقده سوى الجهات اليسارية»، على حد قوله.
    من جهته، عدّ الناشط الحقوقي في مركز «الميزان» سمير زقوت، القانون انتهاكاً لحرية أولياء الأمور في اختيار نوعية التعليم لأبنائهم، وتعارضاً مع القانون الأساسي الفلسطيني، فضلاً عن معاناته من عدّة ثغر ومشكلات تساهم في انتهاك حرية المسلمين والمسيحيين على حد سواء.
    وقال زقوت لـ«الأخبار»: «مسألة الفصل بين الجنسين لن تتضح إلا مع بداية الفصل الدراسي الجديد، فإذا أصرت الحكومة على تنفيذها، ستُغلق جميع المدارس الخاصة مسيحية كانت أو غير ذلك»، موضحاً أن المراكز الحقوقية لم تتلقّ أي شكوى من المسيحيين حتى اللحظة، للجوئهم بالغالب إلى المساعي الودية في حل الإشكاليات. واستبعد زقوت تطبيق القانون العام القادم على أقل تقدير. وأضاف «أخدنا تعهدات من القيادي الحمساوي خليل الحية بوقف كل هذه الإجراءات والتراجع عن القانون الذي أثار جدلاً كبيراً في أوساط الفلسطينيين".

    Two Decades After Oslo: The Agreement That Uprooted Palestine

    September 14, 2013

    Twenty years ago in Washington, laughter filled the TV screens and love was born between two sides, one supposedly an occupier and the other its victim. Twenty years ago, the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people announced the death of armed struggle and the birth of long decades of empty negotiations, which ripped out historical Palestine from its roots.

    Gaza – Two decades ago, Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin grabbed each other’s hands on the White House lawn in Washington DC. They celebrated the birth of the Oslo Declaration of Principles. However, Oslo was not the latest step in the national liberation project launched by Yasser Arafat in 1960, aiming for "revolution until victory." It was to put an end to that revolution and remove the term “victory” from the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) dictionary, replacing it with "permanent defeat."
    The defeat was called a "transitional self-authority" over the territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Occupied Jerusalem and the interior of Palestine were not covered. At that time, the PLO’s thoughts did not go beyond peaceful coexistence and a just and comprehensive solution. It was no longer the time or place for arms. All efforts were dedicated to building the state before achieving liberation.Institutions were built and a Palestinian police force was formed to protect security and internal order in the lands occupied in 1967. Oslo provided the Israeli enemy the full right to self-defense. This was without any objection from the Palestinian side, which supported and entrenched these measures, transforming itself into a tool in the hands of the enemy to disarm the resistance in areas under its control.
    Twenty years were enough for the PLO to take off the robe of the Palestinian revolution and don the suit of security coordination. Twenty years and the permanent solution to the questions of Jerusalem, the refugees, the borders, the water, the prisoners, and security arrangements are still pending and Palestinian negotiators keep avoiding them. Twenty years have passed and settlements continue to spread like cancer in the West Bank and Occupied Jerusalem.
    Political analyst, Adnan Abu Amr, told Al-Akhbar, "The Israeli enemy succeeded in transforming the negotiation process to one of buying political time to achieve important gains, mainly the expansion of settlements, construction of the apartheid wall, and relinquishing Palestinian control over 80 percent of territories."
    Twenty years and the refugee question remains the same, ever since the 1948 nakba and 1967 setback took away their villages and towns. Additionally, UN Resolution 194, calling for the return of refugees to their original homes and their financial compensation, was never implemented. It was merely ink on paper.
    Twenty years have gone by and Palestinian negotiators still use the same methods, without learning their lessons. In the past, they committed numerous mistakes. But today, the maximum ambition is to establish an airport in the West Bank, explore for natural gas off the coast of Gaza, and inaugurate vital touristic projects in areas classified C. They are only concerned with receiving guarantees from the Israeli enemy to increase the number of permits for Palestinian workers.
    Abu Amr indicated that the constant defeats suffered by the Palestinian side were caused by the weakness of Palestinian negotiators and a negotiating team that has not changed in 20 years. The occupation, on the other hand, has changed its negotiating team seven times to date and studied possibilities for political gains against their opponents who were only capable of giving concessions.
    Abu Amr maintained that the PLO had options besides Oslo. It could have continued in the path of the first intifada and imposed its conditions on the Israeli enemy.
    TIt is true that Oslo accomplished the return of the Palestinian leadership to its land, along with 300,000 families. It built an independent Palestinian administration and produced presidential and legislative elections, but it stabbed the cause in the back.
    The land that the PLO fought for historically is now purely Israeli. Palestinians are like aliens. Abu Amr said that the PLO overcooked the political agreement and succeeded in turning the page on resistance, when the Israeli side created the great illusion of the Palestinian Authority, now being contested by Fatah and Hamas.
    Twenty years have gone by and will not return. They took with them the Canaanite, Islamic, and Christian identity of Jerusalem. Ultimately, Oslo, where Palestinian negotiators gambled with their fortunes, is a tragedy, whose chapters the Palestinians have endured.
    In these long years, Palestinians stood by watching until they decided in the past few years to raise the slogan, "The People Want the Overthrow of Oslo." The only officially recognized organization to join in the calls against Oslo was the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which maintained that it will remain on the side of the people's movement, at any cost.wenty years were enough to extinguish the flame of Palestinian aspirations for liberty from occupation. All they care about today is their livelihood and daily bread.

    How US AID Kills Popular Resistance in Palestine



    The strategy for building the Palestinian state is bolstered by economic and social programs aimed at "winning the hearts and minds” of the population under occupation with development programs. (Photo: Archive)

    September 18, 2013

    As the biggest bilateral economic and development donor to the Palestinians, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) uses social development as an effective tool to dismantle Palestinian resistance movements in the West Bank and Gaza. USAID's programs are based on linking all development assistance with repudiating the ideas of resistance and surrendering to the occupation.
    Ramallah – Since 1994, shortly after signing the Oslo Accords, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) received $3 billion in the form of development assistance for water, sanitation, infrastructure, education, health, economic development, and democratization. This type of assistance was part of the fight against "rebellion," closely linked with PNA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's plans announced in August 2009 to build Palestinian state institutions within the 1967 borders and thus promote the two-state solution.
    The fight against "rebellion" had two aims in essence. The first was to control the population and kill the Palestinian resistance. The second was an alternative to traditional methods in quelling resistance and revolutionary movements. This ideology is founded on colonialist concepts at times of war, when raw military intervention fails. So it becomes necessary for the armies to use soft power to win the battle.
    USAID and State-Building
    The strategy for building the Palestinian state is bolstered by economic and social programs aimed at "winning the hearts and minds” of the population under occupation with development programs.
    Fayyad's plan to build Palestinian state institutions seems to have coincided with the security plan launched in the West Bank under the moniker of fighting the state of lawlessness in the territories. The stated aim was to eradicate drugs and stolen car dealers – accusations that were pinned to members of Fatah's military wing al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
    Moreover, the state-building plan does not link the right of return organically with the national goals. Although it mentions ending the occupation, the right to self-determination, and the establishment of the state, it does not say anything about the right of return. Most of the plan is about state-building and leaves little space for national struggle, except in two sentences speaking about peaceful popular resistance.
    In the introduction, the plan speaks about steadfastness and Arab and international supports as prerequisites for achieving independence. This is where USAID programs come in, to try to cover part of this steadfastness through technical assistance, loan programs, and projects to rehabilitate border crossings.
    The project aims to facilitate the movement of Palestinian goods through border checkpoints. It entails better technology to scan merchandise and raising the capacity of Palestinian companies to shorten border-crossing times. However, they ignore the fact that the priority is to remove the crossings and the military checkpoints, rather than making them more practical.
    Resistance Is Terrorism That Undermines the State
    Through direct and indirect partnerships with the PNA, USAID provided a definition of terrorism in Palestine, confining it to resistance movements. One of its goals is fighting against the conditions and circumstances that feed terrorism (meaning resistance) and the community that carries it, all with the goal of creating solid foundations for building the prospective Palestinian state.
    USAID turned the question of fighting terrorism into practice through asking benefactors to sign a statement renouncing terrorism as a condition to receiving grants. Other international organizations, even European ones, do not have this stipulation.
    The definition of terrorism, according to USAID, demands that none of the beneficiaries of the project are members of Hamas or other resistance factions, such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. It also requires a clear statement declaring resistance by Palestinians to be acts of terrorism and committing to US values and principles.
    For example, the terrorism document means that if a car accident occurs outside a health project supported by USAID, victims cannot be treated if they happen to be members in a resistance faction. It also means that a village in the West Bank could not receive a grant for street repair if its village council was made up of Hamas members. This was the case of Bethlehem in 2007, when funding to the municipality and road rehabilitation was terminated because Hamas members were on the council.
    However, the conditions for grants do not stop at signing the terrorism statement. They include a complete security check on members of the board of the institution and project staff under the Partner Vetting System (PVS). The names are investigated by the occupation intelligence units and the PNA security forces in Ramallah. If one of the names happens to have a history of struggle or political leanings toward a resistance faction, the project will be denied.
    Programs to Dry Up Resistance Sources
    A quick and simple review of programs related to democracy, local governance, the media, rule of law, and conflict management will indicate the level of concern the US agency has toward building a Palestinian society that seeks peace with the Israeli enemy based on the two-state solution.
    On the question of local governance, the agency's website claims the West Bank and Gaza Strip are in need of civic participation as a necessity for a democratic state with good governance. The efforts aim to expand and increase the scope of support for the two-state solution and build momentum toward peace.
    This is consistent with Fayyad's state-building plans, which speak of a two-state solution, an end to the occupation, freedom, and the right to self-determination, without mentioning the right of return.
    USAID's outlook about the media, considered an important tool to support the resistance and instill the concept of liberation, is based on the idea that the Palestinian media sector faces obstacles, including the undesired effects of the unstable political environment. This is a reference to the conflict between Fatah and Hamas and its related impacts, positions, and challenges.
    However, despite such challenges, according to USAID, Palestinian media were able to prove their ability to adapt and create a fertile ground for independent and plural media, which do not see Israel as an enemy, but a partner for peace.
    The third cornerstone in eliminating the sources of resistance and its enabling community is through reconciliation and conflict management projects in the West Bank and Gaza, which aim to gather all groups representing the local community around one table to address the hidden causes behind the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
    USAID's programs on conflict management and mediation include training lawyers, experts in psychology, urban planners, general education, dialogue, networking, opportunities between Israelis and Palestinians, joint Palestinian-Israeli environmental programs, and creating Palestinian-Israeli television series.
    West Bank as Green Zone
    According to former US CIA director David Petraeus, the green zone is the area that cannot produce or contain resistance movements. It enjoys peace and security and can export it to its neighbors.
    In the Palestinian case, Fayyad's state-building plan and USAID programs have been acting relentlessly to promote the idea of "civil society," which surpasses boundaries under the name of "global civil society." This is one of the most sinister tools of foreign funding in the implementation of programs to dismantle society, which is the main incubator of resistance movements.
    These associations seek to shape young people's minds through promoting democracy and civil society as the best ways to develop the Palestinian political community. However, they ignore the fact that Palestine is under occupation, and there is a need to plan its liberation before thinking about governance and developing the political community.
    According to the mainstream conception, NGOs are based on a feeling of a common identity, which surpasses national sentiments by linking people through global networks. The more the cause of the NGO is committed to cross-border solidarity, meaning the more it surpasses national boundaries, access to funding becomes easier.
    Clearly, what is meant here is not internationalism in the face of imperialism and zionism for example. Such solidarity cannot happen by denying national independence and unity, but by their reinforcement. This means the "global civil society" is a scheme to ultimately smash national belonging.

    "Hamas’ use of children as human shields and as bait during the so-called March of Return weekly riots is facing mounting criticism in Gaza. "
    "A Gaza-based reporter with connections to Hamas leadership described to TPS how the terror group lures children to approach the border with Israel and puts them in life-endangering situations, a tactic that is now causing locals to accuse the terror group of needlessly sacrificing their children for paltry “accomplishments.”

    Hamas’ strategy involves sending buses to mosques, where children go for activities. The children are then sent out by buses to the border fence. Each cluster of mosques is assigned to a designated zone on the fence.

    I see that as if they are testing the iron dom
    either they have new fireworks or new tactics to fire them
    Iron Dom is not 100% proof, but there is mitigating factor - great many rockets never make it out of Gaza.
