Fighting jihad for Israel
by Hanine Hassan. July 22, 2014.
Her name is Katie. She is from the Netherlands, and chose to serve in the Israeli navy instead of remaining in her country.
Will her government label her and the rest of the hundreds of Dutch youth serving in the Israeli military asjihadstrijders (jihad fighters), the name given to the hundred or so that went to Syria? Katie, a Dutch-Israeli dual citizen, is after all a jihadist in occupied Palestinian lands.
Israel’s genocidal campaign in the Gaza Strip is entering its second week. The death toll has risen to more than 600, with thousands more injured and displaced - alongside arbitrary arrests, the demolition of family homes and a policy of apartheid towards Palestinians both in the West Bank and within the state of Israel. What’s more, these war crimes are directly supported by the recruits from Europe and the United States that land at Ben Gurion airport throughout the year.
The notion of Europeans and Americans serving in the Israeli army isn’t new.
Before the creation of the state of Israel, thousands of western volunteers were recruited by the Zionist movement - in a process named Mahalor volunteers from abroad to take part in Zionist military operations in Palestine during the British Mandate.
In the 1948 war, as many as 4,000 World War II veterans from the US, Canada and Europe carried out military operations against Palestinians, serving the Zionist project with their expertise in warfare, artillery, naval and aerial combat.

United Socialist Party of Venezuela Grassroots Elects National Congress Delegates
by Ewan Robertson
Mérida, 22nd July 2014 (Veneuelanalysis.com) – Grassroots members of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela elected 537 delegates to the party’s 3rd National Congress on Sunday.
The congress, which begins on 26 July in Caracas, will focus on the organisation and programmatic platform of the governing party. President Nicolas Maduro will also seek support for planned state and economic reforms, and is expected to be elected as the party’s new leader, following the death of Hugo Chavez last year.
The 537 conference delegates were elected from among 20,000 candidates postulated by local PSUV branches last month. In addition, leading PSUV officials, parliamentarians, state governors and mayors will also have the right to be delegates at the congress.
Maduro congratulated chosen delegates on Sunday night after the results were announced. “In these 537 delegates a powerful leadership is emerging, that is coming from the grassroots,” he said on national television.
