Titta speciellt litet längre ned på sidan vad det finns för motiv på t-tröjor!


Den israeliska tidningen Haaretz skriver om de bilder de låtit trycka upp på T-tröjor, döda babys, gråtande kvinnor vid sina barns gravar, en automatkarbin riktad mot ett barn vid en utbombad moské är några exempel som Haaretz tar upp. En T-tröja för infanteriets krypskyttar har en text ”Bättre än Durex” som illustreras av en bild på en död palestinsk bebis som ligger bredvid sin döda mor med sin lilla teddybjörn bredvid. En annan visar ett hårkors i ett kikarsikte som siktar på en gravid palestinsk kvinnas mage. Texten som ackompanjerar den bilden är ”Skjut en, döda två”. (nedan)

Focus on Gaza  

Al Jazeera's recent coverage of Israel's war on Gaza was unparalleled. The network was the only international broadcaster with reporters on both sides of the border, in Israel and Gaza.

IN DEPTH

Analysis and features from Gaza and Israel

Send us your videos and views from GazaT
he war may now be over but the human suffering continues. Focus on Gaza is a new weekly show that will examine all facets of life in the Gaza Strip.

Presented by Imran Garda, the programme will bring all the latest news and devolopments in Gaza and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Al Jazeera will also showcase family life in the densely populated area that some describe as the world's largest open prison.

Focus on Gaza features Al Jazeera's team in the territory, including correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin, as we continue to lead the way in covering one of the world's most intractable conflicts.
The Blockade

In the week that British activists arrived in Gaza with 100 trucks of aid, we look at the blockade they broke though, and the impact it is having on quality of life.

We speak to George Galloway himself about why he and his British volunteers made it their mission to bring the goods to Gazans personally.

Also in the programme we feature a cartoon about life under siege made for an Israeli anti-blockade group by the director of acclaimed animation Waltz With Bashir.

And we spend the day out at sea with fisherman off the Gazan coast as they risk their lives for their catch. It’s an industry desperately struggling to remain viable with ever-declining yields as tensions on the ground mean tighter controls imposed out at sea.

 




Part two


Rebuilding Gaza

Israel's war on Gaza left 4,000 homes destroyed and 17,000 damaged. Schools, hospitals, police stations, even the parliament building all need to be rebuilt.

The international community has pledged $5bn to fund the reconstruction but the Israeli government is refusing to allow even the most basic building materials into the Strip.

Todd Baer reports on how this is hampering reconstruction efforts and we ask Major Peter Lerner from the Israeli defence ministry, whether the blockade makes a mockery of the pledge.

In our weekly film on family life in Gaza, we follow a father as he tries to get help for his family, which was made homeless by the war.

 



Watch part two


Policing Gaza


Two months to the day since police stations across Gaza were hit in Israeli air strikes, killing dozens and marking the first day of the war, we ask why the Gazan police were Israel's number one target and how a now ruined Gaza can be policed at all.

We also revisit the Samouni's - the family Al Jazeera English followed throughout the war - to find out how the children are attempting to go on with their lives after losing their loved ones.

Usama Hamdan, a senior Hamas official, joins the show to discuss Palestinian reconciliation.

 



Watch part two

A Crime of War?


Human rights investigators continue to look into allegations that Israeli soldiers may have committed crimes of war during their Gaza military campaign. 

The first Focus on Gaza, A Crime of War? looks at the story of an alleged war crime that occurred in the small village of Khuza'a, half a kilometre from the Israeli border. 

Ayman Mohyeldin speaks with village residents who tell the story of a Gazan woman who was killed with a single shot to the head while waving a white flag as she led children to safety.

 

Focus on Gaza can be seen on Al Jazeera each week at the following times GMT: Friday 1430 and 2030; Saturday 0330 and 2230; Sunday 0830

Det kan bli en del diskussioner om hur det ska ske rent administrativt men det är fullt möjligt. En bank har t.ex låtit en Palestina-aktivist döpa om sin fond till en "egen" variant. Först lät det som att förvaltningsavgifterna därmed skulle bli högre, men efter hot om flyttning till annan bank gick (naturligtvis) allting som smort.
Om fler gör sånt, så tycker väl bankerna att det är för besvärligt att ha med den sortens aktier att göra överhuvudtaget, och en självsanering har gått igång.

På förpackningen står det:

Dessutom är maten märkt med en EAN-kod som börjar på 734, och inte 729 som produkter tillverkade i Israel bör vara märkta med. När jag då kontaktar Hälsans Kök och Caroline Saxer för att höra med henne om varför man inte använder rätt EAN-kod och om råvaran odlas på illegala bosättningar på Västbanken så vill hon inte kommentera saken. Hon hänvisar istället till sin chef, Tomas Silbersky, men han befinner sig inte i Sverige för närvarande.

Googlar man så hittar man t.ex denna text på Indymedia.

Indymedia: “Please continue to protest the supermarkets mislabeling of stolen goods. One way in which the supermarkets attempt to misinform consumers who would boycott Israeli product is to mislabel produce sourced from Israeli settlements. Waitrose admit that they label all produce from the occupied territories as ‘Produce of West Bank’, Goods carrying this label are almost certainly settlement goods not Palestinian goods. In a recent ITN report Sainsbury and Tesco’s, when confronted about this, admitted ‘mistakenly’ mislabelling settlement produce in the past and undertook to label settlement produce ‘ West Bank ‘ in the future. Labelling settlement produce ‘ West Bank ‘ misleads the consumer and denies them the choice between Palestinian goods (of which there are almost none) and settlement goods. It undermines the boycott movement by making Israeli and settlement goods harder to identify. As it’s Christmas, a lot of our last minute purchases will be perishable and luxury goods, this constitutes a major part settlement production. The products listed below are all made in Settlements on the West Bank or in The Golan Heights and branded as made in Israel. Lets make this an Israel free Christmas. * Tivall (West Bank) (Sainsbury’s Meatfree Hot Dog Sausages and Vegetarian Sausages)”

Investigating Gaza's 'war crimes'  

To launch Al Jazeera's new weekly show, Focus On Gaza, correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin visited the village of Khuza'a where residents and human rights experts believe a possible war crime took place during Israel's offensive on the Gaza Strip.


A photograph of her recent pilgrimage to Mecca is now all that remains of Rawhiyya al Najar.

The mother was a Gaza native who had lived her entire life through conflict before it was to end on January 13, aged 37, by what was estimated to be a single shot to the head.

Testimony from eyewitnesses, friends, neighbours and human rights experts about the incident tell the story of how a woman carrying a baby and white flag was shot in broad daylight by an Israeli soldier.

Nasser al Najar, Rawhiyya's husband, still has the bloodstained white flag he says his wife was carrying when she was killed.

In 1949, the newly formed state of Israel, many of whose citizens had been victims of Nazi war crimes, signed the Geneva Convention on the protection of civilians in time of war.

Among the conditions of the convention Article three states: "Persons taking no active part in the hostilities ... shall in all circumstances be treated humanely."

IN DEPTH


Analysis and features from Gaza and Israel


Send us your videos and views from GazaArticle 32 states: "Civilian hospitals organised to give care to the wounded and sick ... may in no circumstances be the object of attack."

But during Israel's recent war on Gaza there is evidence to suggest that these conditions were frequently ignored and that the Israeli military disregarded the laws of war.

Villagers in Khuza'a are accustomed to living under the guns that man the nearby Israeli watchtowers, but Nasser says there are normally no Palestinian resistance fighters in the area and consequently he felt the village would be spared an Israeli raid.

However, on January 12, the Israelis began an intense shelling of the area and deployed white phosphorous, a move that was considered a precursor to a ground-based attack.

White flag hope

Bombs were falling and a number of houses in the area were on fire.

Nasser, along with many others, decided to leave the area, fearing the men in the village would be taken prisoner by the Israelis. He could not persuade his wife to join him.

"She said ... If they were going to kill her, then she would rather die in her own house," he says.

"She thought that maybe if we lifted white flags they might have some mercy on us and not kill us.

"She said the white flag represents peace so they won't harm us ... But they didn't respect the white flag."

Expert view


Fred Abrahams of Human Rights Watch gives his report on the incident

Rawhiyya's daughter, Hiba, stayed with her mother but the white phosphorous caused them to have coughing fits and hampered their efforts to put out the fires.

By 11pm that night, Khuza'a was shut off from the outside world by Israeli tanks, with bulldozers to the east and special forces to the west.

The villagers, now mostly old men, women and children, sheltered together in the larger houses but neither the size of the buildings nor the white flags were to offer any protection.

By 0730am, tanks and bulldozers were busy demolishing houses. Increasingly hemmed in, the women and children decided they had no choice but to try and leave.

No assistance

"Rawhiya was leading them. She said if all the women and children start moving out then everyone else could follow afterward. So she distributed white flags and led them out," Iman says.

"She walked at the front carrying a white flag, followed by other women carrying white flags or holding out their children."

Yasmine al Najar, another of the women, was at the front of the group with Rawhiyya when they spotted Israeli special forces positioned in a house opposite them.

Despite the presence of children and white flags allegedly on display the soldiers began to open fire.



Rawhiyya was trying to lead women and children to safety


"I was right next to her, a centimetre away," Hiba recalls. "Our neighbour was also walking next to her … she was holding up her child as though a flag … Then he shot her."

Yasmine tried to help her neighbour.

"A bullet hit Rawhiya in the head… it entered through one side and went out through the other… I took a bullet in the foot," she says.

In the nearby town of Khan Yunis, Marwan Abu Raida, a paramedic at the Nasser hospital, was finishing his first call out of the day when he received the call sending him to Khuza'a. It was 0745am

"I drove straight there… I was still 60 to 70 metres away from the body when what I think were Israeli special forces started shooting at me," he says.

"I felt powerless… there was nothing I could do for her. My understanding was that medical teams were protected under international ethics and law and that medical teams should be protected and they should have freedom of movement."

With the emergency services unable to help them and the bulldozers closing in, the women made frantic appeals for help, some of which aired live on the midday news.

"No one answered our calls for help," Iman, another of the stranded residents, says.

"At the end we decided to go out together and face the bombardment. The way we saw it was: it's better to walk in to the fire than stay and die under the rubble."

'Targeted killing'

Crawling on their hands and knees and still under fire, the villagers tried to reach the relative safety beyond the cordon of special forces but were shot at once more.

Nasser is convinced his wife's death was a deliberate killing

"Everyone went into one of the houses on the street and they were stuck there," Yasmine says. "But I kept running for about 300 metres until I reached the ambulance and paramedics waiting for us.

It was six hours later that the Israeli army began to withdraw, leaving Iman's 16-year-old brother who had been captured tied up in a house and Rawhiyya’s body in the street.

Calm and everyday life as much as it can exist, has now returned to what is left of Khuza'a but the scars of the war remain.

Fred Abrahams, an analyst for Human Rights Watch, has been researching white flag killings in Gaza during the course of the recent conflict.

"Our job is to look at how the parties to the conflict, Hamas and Israel, respected or disrespected international law and there's such a long list of issues but this case seems to be quite clear cut and that's why we focused on it," he says.

"It seems to us to be a targeted killing, and all the evidence so far suggests that she [Rawhiyya] was shot in plain sight, it was daylight, they saw the flag.

"If proven, that would be a war crime."

It is not easy for investigators to build a picture of exactly what happened. The recollections of people under artillery and sniper fire are often contradictory but in the case of Rawhiyya’s killing there is a remarkable consistency.

"In this case I don't see why they [the Israeli military] would have thought that these women were a risk or a threat to them and therefore that could potentially make this a war crime," Abrahams says.

Nasser has obtained a death certificate from the examining doctor, confirming the paramedic's earlier diagnosis that his wife's death was caused by a single shot to the head.

A GPS calculation of the distance confirms that she was shot at 120 metres.

This, together with Abrahams' findings in other parts of Gaza, have led him to a conclusion which, if correct, would point to a war crime implicating not only the soldier responsible but the entire Israeli military chain of command.

But there is little Human Rights Watch can do other than publish the findings of the report and Abrahams says the Israeli army, like many militaries, does not outline official rules of engagement.


Hiba has built a shrine to her dead motherFor Rawhiyya's friends and relatives there is also little comfort.

Nasser is doing what he can to look after his daughter but he says there is still so much that reminds them of Rawhiyya and their house overlooks the spot where she was killed.

Hiba has built a small memorial where her mother died.

"I thought about what she used to say about staying strong and steadfast," she says.

"When people called us and told us to leave we used to tell them that we will stay here, and we will stay strong."

Activists seek 'Gaza abuses' probe


Rights groups say that Hamas fighters carried out extrajudicial killings during the Gaza war [File: AFP]

Human rights groups have called on Hamas officials to investigate widespread allegations of abduction, torture and the killing of Palestinians accused of being collaborators during Israel's war on Gaza.

Al Jazeera has been shown sworn affidavits, medical records and photographs of alleged victims of reprisals committed against Fatah supporters by security agents or associates of Hamas.

"I think that the officials from the Hamas deposed government have the responsibility to investigate into these incidents ... and bring those who have committed those crimes to justice," Randa Siniora of the Independent Commission for Human Rights, said on Sunday.

"There is a state of vigilantism and chaos, lawlessness in the Gaza Strip right now," she said.

"Extrajudicial killings have increased during the Israeli aggression."

Separately on Sunday, the Gaza-based Palestinian Center for Human Rights called for an investigation into the death of a man beaten in the custody of security forces loyal to the Hamas movement.

Jamil Shakoura died in a Gaza hospital after receiving a number wounds to his head while detained, the group said.

He was not believed to be affiliated to any political group and it was not clear why the security forces were investigating him.

Human rights groups say that at least three people have died while in detention since Hamas seized full control of the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after pushing out security forces loyal to Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president and head of Fatah.

Abuse allegations 

Khalil Abu Shammala, a human rights monitor, told Al Jazeera that dozens of Fatah members were shot and tortured as Israeli forces bombarded the Gaza Strip for 22 days. 

"I don't ignore that there were some mistakes made my members of Hamas, but I think that is not a policy adopted by the leadership here"

Ghazi Hamad,
Hamas official

Naem Atallah told Al Jazeera that he found the body of his son Osama, a Fatah supporter, at Gaza's Shifa hospital after he was taken away from the family home by 10 masked men.

"I asked them who are you? They answered that they are from the internal security. I asked how do I know you are from internal security and one showed me his ID card," he said.

Osama, a teacher and father of five children, had been strangled, suffered blunt force trauma to his head and been shot in the shoulder.

Another Fatah supporter, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals, said that that he had been shot in the leg three times by Hamas loyalists.

"They shot me because I am Fatah," he told Al Jazeera.

"There were 15 guys with hoods over their heads. Three of them asked me to stand against the wall and asked me my name. Three started shooting."

Hamas investigations

Hamas officials have said that they have several investigations under way into the claims of extrajudicial beatings, torture and killings.

"All our investigations are open to everyone," Ihab al-Ghusain, a spokesman for the Hamas interior ministry, told Al Jazeera.

"Nobody is allowed to kill anyone, beat anyone, arrest anyone."

However, all of Al Jazeera's attempts to arrange to view the files on the ongoing investigations went unanswered.

Relations between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah have been strained since 2007, but Ghazi Hamad, a senior Hamas official, denied that the movement's leaders are encouraging a policy of targeting rival Palestinians.

"I don't ignore that there were some mistakes made by members of Hamas, but I think that is not a policy adopted by the leadership here," he said.

"I think it's a shame for Palestinians to arrest each other or torture each other; its very shameful so we have to stop it."
