GAZA (Reuters) – The fractious factions in the Gaza Strip and across the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories have found one voice to unite behind – a 22-year-old youth singing songs about a lost homeland on the Middle East’s version of ‘American Idol’.
Gaza native Mohammed Assaf has become the first Palestinian to qualify for ‘Arab Idol’, a TV talent show staged in Beirut, in which singers perform for judges and voting viewers.
He is now one of the last 10 contestants – largely thanks to his potent mix of good looks and emotional lyrics about ancestral Palestinian lands.
“He is the pride of Palestine. He broke the siege with his voice,” said fan Rehaf al-Batniji, referring to Israel’s blockade of Gaza, seized by the Jewish state, along with the West Bank, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
She stood in front of a large mural of Assaf at a Gaza restaurant, one of hundreds of posters covering buildings and walls usually marked with political slogans.
Assaf’s songs blare out of radios – a counter-balance to their usual broadcasts of bleak economic and political news.
Politicians have raced to endorse him and Palestinian mobile phone company Jawwal has cut the price of text messages to make it easier for supporters to vote.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, from the Fatah movement that holds sway in the West Bank, phoned the singer in Beirut and urged all Arabs to vote for him.
“The president stressed his support and backing to artist Assaf, whose talent represented pride to Palestine,” said a statement by the Palestinian official news agency WAFA.
Israeli authorities on Monday barred two Moroccan MPs accompanying EU parliamentarians from crossing into the West Bank to meet Palestinian officials, one of the lawmakers said.
“The Israel authorities prevented me and my colleague Ali Salem Chekkaf from crossing into the West Bank without giving us any reason,” Mehdi Bensaid told AFP.
“I do not understand this Israeli action, which was an insult to the Moroccan parliament and people. I denounce it.”
The two MPs were part of a delegation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. Morocco belongs to a PACE Middle East sub-committee, as a “partner for democracy”.
Bensaid and Chekkaf said they would stage a sit-in at the Allenby Bridge crossing between Jordan and the West Bank until the EU visit ends on Tuesday afternoon, before flying home to Morocco from Amman.
The remaining 16 members of the delegation of Council of Europe’s sub-committee on the Middle East were allowed to cross the border, Bensaid said.
He added that the team is touring the region to prepare a report on the Middle East.
“We denounce that fact that it is the Israelis who grant visas between two sovereign territories, because Palestine, despite all the problems, has now been recognised by the United Nations,” Bensaid said.
Last November, Palestine was accorded the status of observer state at the world body.
Jordanian officials were not immediately available for comment.

Ottawa, March 4, 2013 The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, issued the following statement regarding so-called Israel Apartheid Week activities:
Everyone in this country has the right to freely and publicly express their views. That being said, I share the concerns of other Canadians about the reckless and overheated rhetoric associated with anti-Israel activities on many Canadian university campuses, and the toxic manner in which these activities are often carried out.
There is no better example than the so-called Israel Apartheid Week (IAW). Its organizers and participants have a regrettable history of promoting and holding events in ways that disregard the security and rights of Jewish faculty and students, censor other points of view, and limit academic discourse.
The disproportionate vitriol directed against the democratic State of Israel during Israel Apartheid Week stands in stark and ironic contrast to the silence of IAW organizers on the ongoing atrocities committed by the Syrian regime against its own citizens, and on the rampant brutalities and denial of rights in non-democratic countries in the Middle East, and elsewhere in the world.
In free societies such as Canadas and Israels, it is absolutely legitimate to debate and criticize government policies and practices. Indeed, Israel supports the right of free expression more than any other country in its part of the world. But with the freedom to criticize comes the responsibility to guard against hateful and intolerant rhetoric.
Operating under the guise of academic freedom, Israel Apartheid Week is a misleading attempt to delegitimize and demonize the only true liberal democracy in the Middle East. IAWs organizers choose to promote inflammatory propaganda over civil and enlightening debate. Their approach is at odds with the Canadian values of tolerance and mutual respect, and prevents meaningful dialogue from taking place.
As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I encourage Canadians to speak out against all forms of discrimination, intolerance and anti-Semitism.

Finding A Future On The West Bank
In the midst of a decades-long conflict, it's hard to keep hold of hope. That's the case for millions Israeli and Palestinian families caught up in the struggle over land and security in the Middle East. But we travel to one village in the West Bank whose youth are building hope for the future … one step at a time. 21st Century #75. Script: www.un.org

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama will travel to Israel, the West Bank and Jordan this spring, the White House said Tuesday, amid signs the administration is interested in revisiting stalled Middle East peace talks.
The trip would be Obamas first visit to Israel as president; he traveled there and to the West Bank as a presidential candidate in July 2008.
It comes as he and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu embark on new terms in office, amid renewed turbulence in the Middle East, and represents an opportunity to forge a different relationship. White House officials said Obama discussed the potential trip when he called Netanyahu on Jan. 28 to congratulate him on the Israeli election.
The start of the presidents second term and the formation of a new Israeli government offer the opportunity to reaffirm the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel and to discuss the way forward on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including Iran and Syria, said Tommy Vietor, the White House spokesman for the National Security Council.
No date for the trip has been announced, though Israeli media reported that Obama would arrive on March 20.
The president also will travel to the West Bank and Jordan to continue his close work with Palestinian Authority officials and Jordanian officials on bilateral and regional issues of mutual interest, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
The visit comes as incoming Secretary of State John Kerry has expressed interest in reviving the peace talks, which largely stalled in 2010. Kerry, a former senator who started his new job this week, spoke over the weekend with Netanyahu, Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
He also suggested at his Senate confirmation hearing last month that the U.S. needed to find a way forward to a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians.
Analysts say Netanyahu was weakened by a January election that saw Israeli centrists gain seats in the Parliament, and that could very well be the reason why they (the administration) see this as an opportunity to at least go out and put a toe in the waters to see whether thats going to make any difference in the otherwise obstructionist attitudes on the part of the Netanyahu government, said Wayne White, a scholar at the Middle East Institute and a former State Department policy and intelligence analyst.
Obama and Netanyahu have had a frosty relationship since the president took a tough early stance in his first term against Israels building of settlements in the predominantly Palestinian West Bank. Political analysts suggested that the upcoming visit was critical to salvaging the relationship.

PARIS – Holding aloft ancient flags and young children, hundreds of thousands of people converged Sunday on the Eiffel Tower to protest the French president’s plan to legalize gay marriage and thus allow same-sex couples to adopt and conceive children.
The opposition to President Francois Hollande’s plan has underscored divisions among the secular-but-Catholic French, especially more traditional rural areas versus urban enclaves. But while polls show the majority of French still support legalizing gay marriage, that backing gets more lukewarm when children come into play.
The protest march started at three points across Paris, filling boulevards throughout the city as demonstrators walked six kilometres (3 miles) to the grounds of France’s most recognizable monument. Paris police estimated the crowd at 340,000, making it one of the largest demonstrations in Paris since an education protest in 1984.
“This law is going to lead to a change of civilization that we don’t want,” said Philippe Javaloyes, a literature teacher who bused in with 300 people from Franche Comte in the far east. “We have nothing against different ways of living, but we think that a child must grow up with a mother and a father.”
Public opposition spearheaded by religious leaders has chipped away at the popularity of Hollande’s plan in recent months. About 52 per cent of French favour legalizing gay marriage, according to a survey released Sunday, down from as high as 65 per cent in August.
French civil unions, allowed since 1999, are at least as popular among heterosexuals as among gay and lesbian couples. But that law has no provisions for adoption or assisted reproduction, which are at the heart of the latest debate.
Hollande’s Socialist Party has sidestepped the debate on assisted reproduction, promising to examine it in March after party members split on including it in the latest proposal. That hasn’t assuaged the concerns of many in Sunday’s protest, however, who fear it’s only a matter of time.
“They’re talking about putting into national identity cards Parent 1, Parent 2, Parent 3, Parent 4. Mom, dad and the kids are going to be wiped off the map, and that’s going to be bad for any country, any civilization,” said Melissa Michel, a Franco-American mother of five who was among a group from the south of France on a train reserved specifically for the protest.
Support for gay marriage and especially adoption by same-sex couples has been particularly tenuous outside Paris, and people from hundreds of miles from the French capital marched Sunday beneath regional flags with emblems dating back to the Middle Ages, chanting “Daddy, Mommy.”
If the French parliament approves the plan, France would become the 12th country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, and the biggest so far in terms of economic and diplomatic influence.

TWO women were found dead in the West Bank on Wednesday after their car was swept away in floods brought by a storm that for days has blasted the Middle East with rain, hail and snow.
Snow carpeted Syria’s war-torn cities but sparked no let-up in the fighting, instead heaping fresh misery on a civilian population already enduring a chronic shortage of heating fuel and daily power cuts.
With snow falling in the West Bank city of Ramallah, wintry weather was also forecast for Amman and Jerusalem, and the polar air mass moving down from Russia sent temperatures plummeting as far south as Cairo.
Days of torrential rain in a region unaccustomed to it has sparked widespread flooding that has led to school closures, transport chaos and helicopter evacuations from homes and cars.
Met offices warned that the freezing conditions threatened to turn the accumulated water to black ice and in Jordan police warned against all but essential travel as traffic accidents multiplied.
In Syria, state television broadcast regular live reports from the snow-covered streets of the capital, while activists in the battleground city of Homs posted images of a mosque in a rebel-held neighbourhood cloaked in white.
There was no respite for civilians from the 21-month conflict, however. Four children from the same family were among as many as 10 civilians killed in a pre-dawn air strike in a village just outside Homs, a watchdog reported.
The two women found dead near the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem – one from the ancient Samaritan community – had been posted as missing since Tuesday night. A third passenger, believed to have been the taxi driver, was retrieved alive but was reportedly in serious condition.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said that on Tuesday, soldiers helped evacuate a bus carrying 30 Palestinian children, as well as an ambulance stuck in floodwaters in the Jenin area of the northern West Bank.
On the Israeli side, army helicopters were used to rescue people from roofs and the tops of cars, and some 300 families from Bat Hefer, north of Tel Aviv, were evacuated from their homes after the nearby Shekhem river burst its banks.
