Utländska arbetare i Israel och deras problem

En intressant artikel om vilka problem den utländska arbetskraften som kommer till Israel råkar ut för.

Förutom att utländsk arbetskraft används inom jordbruk och byggnadsbranschen finns omkring 55.000 israeler som anställer arbetare från Filippinerna, Thailand eller Indien för att sköta om åldringar eller sjuka personer.
Dessa arbetare får minimilön och kan olagligt ha tvingats betala över 10.000 dollar för att få komma till Israel. Det betyder att åtminstone första årets lön går åt till att betala tillbaka det lån som vanligtvis tagits för att betala avgiften.
Trots att myndigheterna är medvetna om läget går det väldigt långsamt att förbättra situationen.

Dåliga ledare skapar kaos

De palestinska araberna måste ha några av världens sämsta ledare, vilket kan förklara varför det är så svårt att få till stånd fred i området.
Basel Ghattas, en israelisk arab som sitter i parlamentet använde i en intervju hederstiteln "Shahid" (Martyr) när han talade om terroristerna som mördat 30 israeler och skadat över 300 personer, han förklarade också att det inte var olagligt eller kriminellt av dem att döda.
Knappast har han några möjligheter att på ett trovärdigt sätt föra de israeliska arabernas talan i parlamentet.
Balad MK says terrorists didn’t commit a crime, are victims of ‘occupation’

"President" Mahmoud Abbas har gett en intervju för  arabiska israeliska reportrar i Ramallah. När man läser vad Abbas säger måste man fråga sig om Abbas lider av någon sjukdom som gör att han tappat verklighetsuppfattningen eller om han bara ljuger obehindrat trots att alla kan se att han ljuger.
Vissa saker kommer han i alla fall ihåg och håller fast vid, som förhandsvillkoren för att komma till förhandlingsbordet och vägran att erkänna Israel som judisk stat.

Arab member of Israeli Parliament justifies  murder of Israelis by terrorists (PMW)
Israeli Arab MP Basel Ghattas: "The day Arab MPs abstain from visiting Martyrs' (Shahids) families who have lost their precious sons in the turmoil of the struggle against the oppressive occupation - they did not go to kill or attempt to kill for criminal reasons or illegally -  the day we abstain from visiting Martyrs' families, we will have to vacate our [parliamentary] chairs and leave the keys at home."
[Hala TV, Panet website, Feb. 10 and 11, 2016]
 
Israeli Arab MP Ghattas' position is similar to that of the Palestinian Authority which claims that murder and terror attacks against Israeli civilians is part of a "legitimate Palestinian struggle."

Hamas video med textning


(MEMRI)'The Roof of the Bus Goes Flying' - Music Video Glorifies Palestinian Bus Bombings​

A music video titled "The Roof of the Bus Goes Flying" was posted on the Internet on February 7. Dancing against the backdrop of a burnt-out Israeli bus, the singers of the Al-Wa'ed Band praise Hamas terrorist mastermind Yahya Ayyash with the words "You did not let a single bus drive through a neighborhood without having chunks of the bus and body parts go flying," and call on "bearers of good tidings" to "wrap the explosive belt around their waists." The song includes lyrics such as: "We want the dead to fill the streets and the blood to intensify the pain," and "make the fire engulf them, turn them into body parts, roast them."

Following are excerpts:

Singer steps out of a mock-up of a bombed Israeli bus

Be glad, brother Ayyash, for the Compassionate has blessed you, for the explosives you planted in the enemy's body were so alive. You did not let a single bus drive through a neighborhood without having chunks of the bus and body parts go flying.

Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

Singers are seen planning a bus attack

Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

Oh Martyrdom-seeker, heed the call of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, make the blast of the bomb reach further and further. Make Netanyahu flee in shame, unable to count the number of casualties. Scatter them all over, strike fear among their people. Show no mercy to their settlers. Dispatch them to Hell. Nothing awaits them but the grave.

Oh martyrdom-seeker, the Al-Aqsa Mosque has called: Oh son, come to martyrdom! Blow yourself up, oh you with strong resolve. We will defend the soil of the pure Al-Aqsa.

Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

Singers dance the debke


"Jews" are waiting for a bus to come, along with the potential bus bomber

Oh Martyrdom-seeker, make them cry. Make the fire engulf them. Turn them into body parts, roast them, bringing joy to the hearts of the steadfast people.

The "Jews" board an "Israeli" bus

Oh martyrdom-seeker, it is our duty to defend our people. You are the voice of honor within us.

The bomber walks through the isle of the bus

With your explosive belt, we will defend our free women. We want the dead to fill the streets, and the blood to intensify the pain. Make the Zionist withdraw from the wrath of my avenging people.

Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

Disclose your secrets to the Compassionate. Oh martyrdom-seeker, the Lord has chosen you. Our Prophet Muhammad will be your neighbor. In Paradise, your home has already been built. Step up and take revenge on behalf of your religion. Blow it up – may you be successful. Oh you who wears the explosive belt, your head is held high, when we bring the good tidings.

Oh Martyrdom-seeker, put on your explosive belt, and blow it up. This is your finest hour. How sweet are your bombs and explosives. Blow up the shameless Zionist.

Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

An explosion is heard and the screen goes black

Amb Danon to UNSG Ban Ki-moon: Terrorists are using your words

MFA
Raafat Alian, Fatah's Jerusalem spokesman, said that Israel's actions against the Palestinian people "cannot go unanswered without natural reaction." 
The Secretary General had said it was "human nature" to react with terrorism to Israel's co-called occupation.
​In reference to last week's terror attack in Jerusalem in which policewoman Hadar Cohen was murdered by terrorists, a spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement used language identical to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's statements justifying Palestinian terrorism. Raafat Alian, Fatah's Jerusalem spokesman, said that Israel's actions against the Palestinian people "cannot go unanswered without natural reaction." The Secretary General had said it was "human nature" to react with terrorism to Israel's co-called occupation.

Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon sent an official letter to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon demanding that he retract his statements legitimizing terror in Israel. 

"The Palestinian leadership has now begun to use your statements to justify deplorable acts of terror," Ambassador Danon wrote.  "Your words have created two categories of terrorism - one for attacks against Israelis and another for the rest of the world," the Ambassador continued.

In his letter to the Secretary General, the Ambassador also noted that it was only due to the bravery of a young Israeli policewoman, Hadar Cohen who sadly paid with her life, that a greater tragedy was avoided in Jerusalem this week.

"At what point has the UN assumed the role of rationalizing the actions of Palestinian terror? At what point did the U.N start to differentiate between Israeli and non-Israeli victims of terror?" Ambassador Danon wrote. "I call upon you to withdraw your previous statement and unequivocally state that there is no justification for the bloodshed of innocent Israelis."

Stoppa våldet!
