Gaza carries the can for power owners

How absolutely wrong it is that the weakest people in the region – the Palestinians living in besieged Gaza – should be the ones made to live without sanitation, fresh water, electric light. And this is during the long hot days of Ramadan. WHO has stepped in to do what it can.

A guide to Ramadan for Jews

This year Ramadan, the holy month, began on May 27, 2017, and lasts until June 24, 2017. It’s for spirituality, charity, reflection, resolutions. JfJfP send warm greetings to all our friends and colleagues who follow the rites and celebrate the spirit of the month.

Clash of civilisations in Jerusalem

For several years ‘Jerusalem Day’ has been a riot of ugliness and swagger. Now the more civil Jews in Jerusalem are fighting to save the city. Meanwhile, Ramadan has begun, a particularly rigorous observance during the longest days of the year.

Getting to Jerusalem at Ramadan

This a series of photos from Huffington Post, Occupied Palestine, +972 and Mondoweiss showing young Palestinian men climbing the wall at several points on the Fridays of Ramadan in order to reach mosques – the IOF does not allow them through the Qalandia checkpoint – and the women and children, who are allowed into Jerusalem during Ramadan, shuffling through the military checkpoint.

Fear of Ramadan delays eviction of Migron outpost

The Migron settlement was acknowleged as illegal by Israel’s Supreme Court – because it was built on privately-owned Palestinian land. It was to be evacuated on August 1st but this has been delayed because, say authorities, it falls during Ramadan.

Palestinian TV satire banned for not being ‘constructive’

The Palestinian prosecutor general has banned a TV satire show, broadcast during Ramadan for the last three years, because of complaints by professions which expect deference – security forces, judiciary, medics. Officials from PLO and PBC condemn the censorship

Gazans, the people who give to Somalian famine victims in Ramadan

Ramzy Baroud discovers that in the waste of shame where many of Somalia’s neighbours are stranded, the impoverished people of Gaza send gifts and regards to the victims of famine in East Africa

May you have a blessed Ramadan!

The JfJfP sends its best wishes to all Muslims as they begin the month of Ramadan today. 2) Israel sends a warplane to Gaza. 3) Dr. Hesham A. Hassaballa worries in Chicago about Ramadan observance in the long hot days of summer (hotter but shorter than UK days).
