Israel’s message to the Palestinians: Submit, leave or die

Israel’s message is clear is that the military operations had a purpose of their own, that they would have been launched regardless, that they were merely waiting on a pretext. They had to come because the vacuum left by Kerry had to be filled. “Closure” was necessary – and it was clear that the Palestinian Authority, which had several months to take an initiative that would have bolstered the Palestinians’ position, would not do so, even though Martin Indyk, the American’s chief negotiator and former AIPAC leader, placed the blame squarely on Israel for talks’ failure.

There were over a thousand participants in the march. The general mood was one of anger and pain but not discouragement. Determination might best describe the mood. There were a few speeches, lots of loud chanting, and then a march from the Israeli Consul on 42nd & 2nd Ave. along 42nd St. (very crowded area, marchers were seen by many) and then turned north on 6th Ave. to FOX News on 48th St.

IN ISRAEL ~~ PANIC YOU SAY?

An Israeli military spokesman has admitted that Israel is killing Palestinian children knowingly, saying the goal of the killing is to make Hamas supporters suffer. Israel routinely carries out war crimes and crimes against humanity against Palestinians and other peoples of the Middle East, paying little or no attention to the rule of international law or international humanitarian law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now remember, HAMAS is the democratically elected government of Gaza, so what Israel is doing is like bombing the homes of GOP supporters here in the US.

“BOMBING HOME IN GAZA WAS AN ERROR” CLAIMS ISRAEL ….

An attack on the Kaware family home in Khan Younis on Tuesday killed seven civilians, including at least two children, and injured 28 other people, while an attack on the Hamad family home in Beit Hanoun resulted in the deaths of six civilians.

Israel now claims that the killings at the Kaware home were an “error.”

Trent Franks Blasts Obama's Cowardly, Unprecedented Betrayal of Israel

Politicians like this betray America IMHO!

Earlier this week Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) blasted the Obama administration's handling of the unfolding military crisis developing between Israel and Palestine saying "I thought nothing this president could ever say or do would surprise me anymore, but this flushed and breathless rush to embrase terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children is an unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal"

The Mindlessness of a Manifesto - by Dr. William Cook

Israel garbed in the armor of the American flag, fielding America’s weapons of mass destruction, protected by the investment of the American taxpayer in the “iron dome,” and marching with the impunity that comes from America’s veto of censure, reveals to the world two nations that willingly impose their “superior power” on a defenseless people displaying in the enormity of their invasion unleashed evil without compassion, without mercy, without sense, a mindless act of uncivil barbarity no different than that displayed by the Mongols or Visigoths of ancient days.

The "Six Million Jews" Theme From Before World War Two

So here is the story.

I chanced across an article documenting how the Zionists had been using the theme of "Six Million Jews" long before World War 2. This article was hosted on scribd and no sooner did I link to that article from whatreallyhappened.com than it was pulled from the scribd server.

The reason for the panic reaction is obvious. As doubts continue to surface regarding the claim of Six Million Jews intentionally exterminated by Germany in the 1940s, evidence that the Six Million "brand" has been used prior to that time undermines its credibility even further.

So where did the Six Million come from, if not in actual fact from the crimes of the Nazis? It actually originates in a prophecy from the Talmud, which states that after Six Million Jews are sacrificed, Israel will be restored to the survivors.

Israel Is Bombing Gaza Back to the Stone Age to Get Hamas ... But ISIS – NOT HAMAS – Claims Credit for Attacks Against Israel

Israel is currently bombing Gaza back to the stone age (MSM spin notwithstanding).

While Israel claims that Hamas was behind the murder of 3 Israeli boys which started this round of violence (and subsequent rocket attacks), the Times of Israel reported last week:

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) [or "ISIS"] has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Hamas has denied responsibility for the attacks.

The New York Times also reported on Wednesday:

Gaza-Israel conflict: The terrible price Palestinian children are paying for Israel’s war with Hamas

He and his wife, Hanan, had craved a baby and Mariam came after years of IVF treatment. An only child, she was the apple of her grandparents’ eyes and they had been constantly cautioning her that she should not stray far from home in these dangerous times.

“Our little girl was playing in our garden when it happened. The Israelis bombed a house across the street: the blast came straight through our house – then I saw my daughter lying in blood,” said Mr Masri. “She was injured badly in the head, so we fear very much.”

Mariam is one among the extraordinarily large number of children who have been victims since Benjamin Netanyahu’s government launched Operation Protective Edge: 22 are among the 103 dead, and no less than 70 per cent of the 700 injured comprise boys and girls, or women, according to Palestinian medical authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF is blowing up residential structures, under the claim that they harbor "Hamas terrorists"; however, I would suggest that they are bombing residential structures to kill as many women and children as possible.

When you execute kids, you take the future away from a society; Hitler certainly understood that.

Executing women... is forced population control.

Can We Stop Pretending Israel is Being Attacked?

I’ve long been a critic of Israel when it comes to its treatment of the Palestinians, but have refrained from jumping in every time the conflict flares up in recent years. Why? Because it is so toxic and divisive that I’m not sure it does any good venting about it on Facebook, Twitter, or on these pages. If you are pro-Israel, there’s not a lot anyone can say to change your mind. If you can watch Israel decimate Palestinians and take their land on live television, year after year, decade after decade and still justify their behavior, then there is little point in engaging in debate. It’s takes an extraordinary leap of logic to justify Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine, and the blind support the nation receives is born out of irrational tribal loyalty rather than a neutral observation of the facts.

About Those Rockets | #Gaza

Here is a familiar-sounding reply to this week's complaints about the carnage in Gaza: "Well, if people wouldn't fire ROCKETS at Israel, none of those strikes would have been carried out, and people would not have died. And hey, what would YOU do if the people who lived across the border were firing rockets at YOU?"

I call this "The Response." You hear it a lot it in the US from supporters of Israel. It has many variations, but the variations always hit the main points: "They started it; that's what happens when you start something; what the hell would you do in our situation?" The Response seems powerful. It tends to end discussions, which is, I think, why it's been popular for a long time.

For years, I bought it. Now I don't, and I wrote this article to tell you why. Once you look at The Response closely enough, you realize that there are at least three points at which it collapses under its own weight.

Thank You, President Obama. Love, Israel

Dear President Obama,

We must confess, when you became President, some of us were a little worried that America’s "special relationship" with Israel would come to an end.

We were concerned that the United States would no longer provide money, weapons, and most importantly, diplomatic cover to Israel.

After all, Jimmy Carter – a former President from your own political party – has been highly critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. He even had the nerve to say that Hamas was democratically elected, and that our policy towards Palestine is worse than South African apartheid.

We were fearful that your passionate speech in Cairo in 2009 would make Muslims believe that an Obama presidency would be a neutral player in Israel’s fight against the terrorists from Palestine.

But, thankfully, through your actions as President, you have alleviated our anxieties.

Palestinians: Most Gaza dead are children, women, elderly

A five-year-old boy was killed yesterday morning in an Israeli airstrike on the northern Gaza Strip, as Palestinian sources reported the deaths of 17 people in the morning in assaults on a café and a home.

Reports from Gaza indicated widespread damage to houses, infrastructure and public buildings, with large numbers of civilian casualties. A Hamas activist ridiculed Israeli claims that Hamas infrastructure was being targeted, noting the high number of buildings containing families and civilians that had been hit.

By the afternoon, the Palestinian Health Ministry put the death toll in Gaza at 81 people — among them 22 children, 15 women and 12 elderly people — since Operation Protective Edge began on Tuesday. Another 537 people have been injured.

Like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Palestinians in Gaza are not talking about calming the situation. Spokesmen for different armed organizations in the Strip are vowing to continue their fight “to the end.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Precisely what does that phrase fight 'to the end' mean, precisely, in Netanyahu's mind?!?

The killing of every Gazan woman, child, and medically fragile elderly people the IDF snipers can hit?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer here appears to be yes.

The London 7/7 Bombings: Big Questions Never Asked, Let Alone Answered

When the government’s so-called ‘narrative’ was published in May 2006 researchers immediately spotted glaring errors with the alleged bombers journey into London. Home Secretary John Reid was forced into the House of Commons to announce that the train the police said they caught did not run that morning. Although the official story had it they were ‘clean skins,’ it later transpired MI5 had been following them for years. Those were just two in a series of shameful omissions and embarrassing errors in a police investigation and Home Office narrative with a frighteningly short shelf life.

The London Underground CCTV cameras bristling every few yards on the tube and every bus has several, so why were no CCTV pictures ever produced which showed any of the alleged bombers in or getting onto the bombed trains or bus? Verint Systems, an Israeli firm, won the private CCTV contract five months before the attack but no questions appear to have been asked during their vetting, despite Verint’s group chairman, Kobi Alexander, running off with tens of millions of dollars, wanted by Interpol, the FBI and Wall Street regulators the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Disabled Palestinians unable to escape Israeli air strike on home

Who knows who lived in the two first-floor apartments above a home for eight disabled adults in a neighbourhood of eastern Gaza.

Perhaps, as a neighbour suggests, one of them was a militant with Islamic Jihad who lived there with his family. But the neighbour says he isn't sure. What is certain is that the occupant was absent in the early hours of Saturday morning when the two Israeli drones "knocked on his roof" – firing warning shots to encourage civilians to vacate the building prior to a strike.

A few minutes later, an Israeli war plane fired a missile into the house. But it didn't detonate on the first floor. Instead, it smashed through to the ground floor where the explosion ripped through the room where five of the disabled residents were sleeping, killing two and injuring the others.

Einstein on Palestine and Zionism

There is some controversy over Einstein’s political views especially on the issue of Palestine and the creation of a Jewish State.

Many Zionists claim Einstein as one of their own. Einstein, however, was a pacifist, a universalist and abhorred nationalism.

The recently published book, Einstein on Israel and Zionism: His Provocative Ideas About the Middle East by Fred Jerome (New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2009) has brought Einstein’s political views on the Middle East back into the spotlight.

Israel Airstrike Hits Gaza Mosque, Death Toll Tops 120

US complicity in Israel's attack on Gaza

It was very kind of Brenda from the US Consulate in Jerusalem to finally return my call at 7pm, long after work hours.

I had been trying since early morning to get an appointment for a group of concerned US citizens living in Palestine to meet with a policy officer. We came together through social media and word of mouth because we are desperate to speak out about the unjustifiable slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza that is now under way.

We want to express our opposition to United States' complicity in the Israeli attacks that have taken over 100 Palestinian lives, with hundreds more injured. We want to demand a change of policy before the threatened Israeli ground invasion becomes a reality. But it turned out that it was difficult to reach anyone in the consulate, much less to get an appointment.

Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog."

How Netanyahu provoked this war with Gaza

So how did we get from there to here, here being Operation Protective Edge, which officially began Tuesday with 20 Gazans dead, both militants and civilians, scores of others badly wounded and much destruction, alongside about 150 rockets flying all over Israel (but no serious injuries or property damage by Wednesday afternoon)?

We got here because Benjamin Netanyahu brought us here. He’s being credited in Israel for showing great restraint in the days leading up to the big op, answering Gaza’s rockets with nothing more than warning shots and offering “quiet for quiet.” But in fact it was his antagonism toward all Palestinians – toward Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority no less than toward Hamas – that started and steadily provoked the chain reaction that led to the current misery.

Blair obviously prefers not to upset the Israelis.

Bearing in mind the scale of the crimes Blair committed in Iraq on behalf of Israel and the Jewish lobby, his attitude is understandable. Israel is probably the only country that is willing to give him a shelter.
Apparently, in the last seven years, “peace envoy” Blair has visited Gaza only once.

UN Human Rights Chief Doubts Legality Of Israeli Air Campaign

Israel's air campaign in Gaza may violate international laws prohibiting the targeting of civilians, the UN's top human rights official has said as the death toll of Palestinians rose to more than 100.

As international pressure continued to build on Israel to end its four-day conflict with Hamas and Palestinian militant groups in the enclave, Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said the Israeli military must abide by international law.

"So far the battle is progressing as planned, but we can expect further stages in future. Up to now, we have hit Hamas and the terror organisations hard and as the battle continues we will increase strikes at them," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since when has Israel allow international law to in any way interfere with what they do to the Palestinians?

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet real money on a ground invasion of Gaza; the only question is the timing, which will be when the Israeli government feels that international attention is distracted with other geopolitical issues so as to be paying the minimal amount of attention to that invasion.

ABC airs Gaza bombing devastation images - says it's in Israel

In the latest case of Western mainstream media confusing the geographical location of warzones, an ABC News anchor described footage of Gaza homes shortly after their destruction by the IDF as belonging to Israel.

On July 8, veteran ABC news anchor Diane Sawyer, 68, opened up a news segment, entitled Under Attack, with the following introduction: “We take you overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today, as Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky, all part of the tinderbox, Israelis and Palestinians [sic].”

In two images that accompanied Sawyer’s narration, she says, “Here are two Israelis trying to salvage what they can, while a woman is standing speechless among the ruins.”

There was just one problem: The images of wide-scale physical destruction and human suffering shown in the images were not from Israel, but rather from the Gaza Strip, where the locals have been enduring days of aerial bombings.

Gaza: 8 things you should know about Israel’s violent assault that mainstream media does not want you to know

Like us, you are probably saddened and upset by the recent surge in violence between Israel and Hamas. The violence directed at civilians on both sides is wrong, and should be condemned. However, as many of you have probably noticed, Israel’s pro-occupation media machine is hard at work promoting a lopsided view of the conflict in mainstream media. Therefore, we’ve compiled a few points to provide better context and more balanced info as you discuss the situation with your friends, family and any media contacts.

I Don't Think The Idea Of Americans & Canadians Paying The Tax Is To Kill Palestinains

Gaza towns, not fully repaired from Israel’s 2008-09 invasion, are being smashed again, and Israel is ordering some 100,000 civilians out of their homes in anticipation of a ground invasion that will further level their towns.

Israel, by contrast, has seen virtually no casualties from the Gaza rocket fire that is supposedly a justification for the onslaught. In three days of hyped “Hamas attacks,” Israel has only claimed a single casualty, a soldier “lightly wounded” by shrapnel from a rocket.

That’s unsurprising, because while rockets from Gaza are being fired all over Israel, they are extremely primitive weapons with no guidance, rarely hitting anything, and even when they do rarely doing more than superficial damage to the roof of some random building.

Israel's Kill 2 Birds With One Stone: Kill The People Of Gaza & Get ALL Their Offshore Gas Fields

Five years ago, Israel invaded Gaza under “Operation Cast Lead”.
The following article was first published by Global Research in January 2009 at the height of the Israeli bombing and invasion under Operation Cast Lead.

In the wake of the invasion, Palestinian gas fields were de facto confiscated by Israel in derogation of international law
A year following “Operation Cast Lead”, Tel Aviv announced the discovery of the Leviathan natural gas field in the Eastern Mediterranean “off the coast of Israel.”

At the time the gas field was: “ … the most prominent field ever found in the sub-explored area of the Levantine Basin, which covers about 83,000 square kilometres of the eastern Mediterranean region.” (i)

'Israel under renewed Hamas attack', says the BBC. More balance is needed

"Israel under renewed Hamas attack": this was last night's BBC headline on the escalating bloodshed in Gaza. It is as perverse as Mike Tyson punching a toddler, followed by a headline claiming that the child spat at him. As Elizabeth Tsurkov, a Tel Aviv-based Israeli human rights activist, tweeted: "We are targeted by mostly shitty rockets. Gazans are being shelled with heavy bombs. We have shelters, sirens, Iron Dome. They have 0."

There is no defence for Hamas firing rockets into civilian areas, and as sirens wail in Israel, the fear among ordinary Israelis should not be ignored or belittled. But the media coverage hardly reflects the reality: a military superpower armed with F-15 fighter jets, AH-64 Apache helicopters, Delilah missiles, IAI Heron-1 drones and Jericho II missiles (and nuclear bombs, for that matter), versus what David Cameron describes as a "prison camp" firing almost entirely ineffective missiles.

Rocket fire from Lebanon hits Israel, unclear who was behind attack

The rocket fire on Friday came hours after about 100,000 Gaza residents living in cities near the border with Israel were reportedly told Thursday to leave their homes ahead of anticipated military action by the Israeli army, according to Israeli media reports.

Israeli ministers have repeatedly hinted at a possible ground offensive over the past three days of airstrikes on Gaza, with troops massing on the border. Israel's Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz told Israel Radio on Thursday that the military "will have to take over Gaza temporarily, for a few weeks." Israel has called up 20,000 reservists.

Lebanese Forces condemns Israeli offensive on Gaza

The Lebanese Forces Thursday condemned Israeli aggression toward Gaza, warning the international community that a prolonged crisis would plunge the entire region into chaos.

“The Lebanese Forces deplores the escalating Israeli aggression toward Gaza, which does not exclude civilians such as children, women and the elderly,” the LF said. “Such aggression is unjustifiable by all political, security and humanitarian standards,” it added. “Both the Arab and the international community are asked to take immediate action to stop what is happening as soon as possible, for the sake of the innocent lives and to prevent a deterioration that might affect the entire region, leading to chaos and producing results no one could ever imagine.”

NBC BEX - Hamas Firing China-Designed, Syria-Made M-302 Rockets: Israel

Smuggled Syrian-made rockets based on a Chinese design have boosted Hamas' 10,000-strong arsenal which is dominated by crude homemade devices, officials and experts say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this were true (and not for one second am I buying this USDA Choice bovine excrement) then it means that Israel's starvation blockade of Gaza is totally ineffective. Israel has justified blocking food, medicine, schools supplies, even students' musical instruments into Gaza, all under the excuse that they are preventing HAMAS from obtaining military weapons.

Well, this sudden Israeli claim that HAMAS has thousands of rockets smuggled in proves the blockade simply does not work, and the only reason Israel continues the blockade is to increase the suffering of the Palestinians!

Israel Doesn't Flinch at Brutalizing Americans Who Stand in the Way of Their War on Palestinians: 7 Gruesome Examples

Tariq Abu Khdeir is not the first American to be brutally targeted by Israeli forces. American citizenship matters little to the Israeli army or police if one is Palestinian or Muslim or protesting the Israeli occupation’s policies. The violence meted out to Americans is just a small sliver of what Palestinians go through--being beaten, thrown in jail, or killed. The Israeli occupation’s violence could escalate in the coming days as protests continue.

Here are six other cases of Israeli forces harming Americans.

State Dep’t says Israel has a right to defend itself, but can’t say the same of Palestinians

MS. PSAKI: I would say, Said, that I don’t think any country would be expected to allow rockets to come in and threaten the lives and health and well-being of the citizens in their country, and Israel has the right to defend themselves.

QUESTION: Okay. Do you believe that the Palestinians in Gaza have the right to defend themselves?

MS. PSAKI: I think – I’m not sure what you’re getting at, Said.

QUESTION: I am asking you: Do they have the right to defend themselves against Israeli aggression?

MS. PSAKI: What are you specifically referring to? Is there a specific event or a specific occurrence?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Psaki gives Netanyahu a blow-job on national TV!

To which I would add that the kidnapping of the three teenagers did not happen in Gaza and even the Israeli media is reporting a different group, the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis, took credit for the murders. And the head of the Mossad "predicted" three Israeli teenagers would be kidnapped a week before it happened!

The quickest way to detect a government lie is to look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a REASON for HAMAS to do something that stupid at this particular time.

HAMAS and FATAH formed a unity government. They need the support of the world right now, and neither HAMAS or FATAH is going to carry out an act that would wreck the very public support they need. It's like George Washington trying to kick out the British by shooting students in the colonial schools; it is just not going to happen.

Netanyahu, of course, is adamantly opposed to the unity government and stated he would find some way to wreck it. It appears he has done just that.

Keep in mind Israel's history. In both the Lavon affair and the attack on the USS Liberty, Israel carried out attacks then tried to frame Egypt for them, to trick the US into ending political relations and possibly launching war. In these two cases, Israel's deception became known, but one may presume that where one Israeli deception is found, there are likely dozens more they got away with. This stunt with the three teens appears to be more of the same. Kidnapping and killing these kids does not help HAMAS, but clearly helped Netanyahu by creating the excuse for him to launch outright war on Gaza.

"By way of deception, thou shalt do war" -- Motto of the Mossad

So who is Israel "defending" itself from, bitch!

Jihadist group takes credit for teens’ killings

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

In a statement posted on jihadi websites Tuesday, the Supporters of the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis said it was behind the capture and killing of “the three soldiers” in Hebron (actually, it was in the nearby Etzion bloc), sniper attacks in Hebron and Tarqumia, and missile launches from Gaza into Israel a month and a half ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even the Israeli media is saying HAMAS had nothing to do with the deaths of the three teens, yet Netanyahu uncorks collective punishment, which is a war crime, against the Gazans who dared vote HAMAS as their government.

Blair obviously prefers not to upset the Israelis. Bearing in mind the scale of the crimes Blair committed in Iraq on behalf of Israel and the Jewish Lobby, it is understandable. Israel is probably the only country that is willing to give him a shelter.

Holocaust Or Holohoax? 21 Amazing Facts

In British [and American] Schools, and constantly on British [and American] television, we are bombarded with the alleged murder of 6 million jews by the Germans during World War Two. This is commonly referred to as “The Holocaust”. This alleged historical event is also thrown at anyone objecting to mass immigration in to White Nations as proof of the absolute evil of White Nationalism. In most European Countries even disputing any detail of this alleged historical event is a very serious criminal offence, which can result in up to 20 years imprisonment. In France this can be served in solitary confinement if the authorities believe there is any chance of re-offending.

Even though this blog in no way denies “The Holocaust”, or disputes any of the alleged details of any of the different versions, we did list 21 amazing facts about it here:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In WW2, the nations of the world had sacrificed much blood and treasure on the principle that one nation did not have the right to simply march into another nation and take it over for their own use. Yet, that is exactly what the founders of Israel planned to do to Palestine! So they needed a piece of propaganda powerful enough to convince the world that what Germany had not been allowed to do to Poland and France, Israel had to be allowed to do to Palestine.

So the German slave labor camps were described as death camps. Delousing with insecticide was described as gassing. And the thousands of deaths of all races (including Germans) from the typhus epidemics were described as a deliberate campaign of genocide targeting only the Talmudic six million Jews, a number that had also been used for propaganda purposes in World War 1!

The world fell for the lie, and the same nations which had united to stop Germany from stealing Europe stood back and did nothing while Israel stole Palestine.

Since then, Israel has maintained this myth of six million Jews subjected to extermination by the Germans as it is central to keeping the world from speaking out against Israel's abuses of the Palestinians. Coupled with that is the constant series of propaganda stunts involving false-flag attacks blamed on Palestinians, to keep the world from sympathizing with their suffering' to make it look as if somehow they deserve what is being done to them.

Netanyahu's War: What Is It Good For?

The government of Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a new war on Palestinians in Gaza, a war whose purported justifications make George W. Bush's excuses for his illegal invasion of Iraq smell nice by comparison. So far, the United States, Netanyahu's chief enabler, has been unwilling to stop the carnage, as it could easily do, because Washington hasn't yet heard enough complaint from Americans not to use their tax dollars to kill children in Gaza.

Suppose that you believe that there are just wars and there are unjust wars, as many people do. Is Netanyahu's war on Hamas in Gaza a just war? A just war must have a just end, and the just end must be sufficiently good to more than compensate for all injustices caused by the war. The just end must not be reachable by peaceful means, and attempts to use peaceful means to achieve the just end must have been exhausted.

Israel vs. Hamas: The conflict by the numbers

In light of The Economist’s index during the last Israeli offensive in Gaza in November 2012, here are some numbers from July 8-July 10 2014.

Number of Palestinians in Gaza killed by the Israeli military: At least 82, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health via Al Akhbar news service.

Number of Israelis killed by Hamas rockets from Gaza: 0, according to news reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One can see from numbers why Bibi does not want Gaza and West Bank to be "united".

Israel's Population 6.1 million Jews

Palestinians populations : 1.7 millions in Gaza, 2 millions in Israel, 2.7 millions in occupied West Bank.

Total equals 6.4 million Palestinians. and that's more than Israeli Jews living in Israel.

So, Israel needs to kill at least 300,000 Palestinians to avoid being a ruling apartheid minority.

Palestinian president says Israel are ‘hours away’ from launching ground strike as rockets are now fired into country from Lebanon

Israel is only hours away from launching a ground attack on Gaza, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has claimed.

The Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization warned that the Israeli government has already approved a land operation in Gaza, and that the operation is likely to start later today.

His claims come as a fresh wave of rocket attacks have hit sites in Israel - including towns in the north of the country that were fired from Lebanon.

It is the first time militants in Lebanon have launched missiles following four-days of rocket attacks sent from Gaza. It is not yet known whether the rockets were a symbolic show of support for Palestinian militant group Hamas, or if they represent an intervention by Lebanese Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah.

100 killed' in Gaza as pressure builds on Israel to end military offensive

he death toll in Gaza has risen as international pressure builds on Israel to end its four-day conflict with Hamas and Palestinian militant groups in the enclave.

A Gaza health ministry spokesman said two Palestinians were killed and three injured in an Israeli air strike on Friday that brought the death toll to 100.

Rocket fire continued at Israeli cities, which have so far avoided fatalities, and Hamas's armed wing, the Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, said on Friday it intended to hit Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion international airport, warning airlines not to fly to it.

The White House said late on Thursday that Barack Obama had phoned the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, to offer to broker a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

There will be some move in the Security Council to condemn the killing of civilians, which will bring about the immediate VETO by the US; it is as simple as that; and the inescapable message which will be sent will be that the killing of civilians is justified, as long as the US government supports the government doing the killing of civilians (Ukraine is another brilliant example of this posture).

In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call to the world to apply boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it meets its obligations under international law. Now, in the midst of Israel’s ongoing terror campaign, BDS remains the best way the international movement can show Palestine our solidarity.

Israel escalates aerial offensive on Gaza

Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault in Gaza Thursday hitting hundreds of Hamas targets, and the Palestinians said a family of eight was killed in a strike that destroyed their home. Israel's missile defense system once again intercepted rockets fired by militants at the country's heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AOL is trying to sell Israeli media propaganda that Israel hit hundreds of Hamas targets, but the photos clearly show apartments and houses in civilian neighborhoods. Israel bombed a cafe where the customers were watching the World Cup. There are no no photos of any damage on the Israeli side and no casualties--not even wounded people. This is why ABC's Diane Sawyer used photos of the destruction in Gaza and tried to claim it was Israel. As for the "successful" intercepts by Iron Dome, the actual rate is less than 50%, with the Palestinians firing 15 rockets into Israel (at a cost of less than $1000 each) and Israel intercepting just 7. Israel won't say how many Iron Dome rockets $50,000 each, paid for by the US taxpayer) they had to fire to hit those 7 inbounds, so the success rate may actually be worse.

ABC News tells viewers that scenes of destruction in Gaza are in Israel

More than fifty Palestinians have been killed and another 450 wounded since Monday in Israel’s ongoing assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” by the Israeli army.

As usual, mainstream media outlets are straining to paint Israel as the victim, defending its people against irrational Palestinian rocket fire.

There is no equating the killing and maiming of dozens of innocent Palestinians with scared Israelis seeking shelter from crude rockets that rarely cause damage. But that hasn’t stopped media outlets from trying, and in some cases, outright lying, to distort the violence.

In one stark example, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer misidentifies scenes of the aftermath of Israeli missile strikes in Gaza as destruction caused by Palestinian rocket fire.

ABC’s Diane Sawyer’s Despicable Yellow Journalism: Claims Images of Palestinians in Gaza are Israelis

It’s been a long time since I have seen yellow journalism this tasteless, shabby and despicable.

Diane Sawyer recently opened up her show looking to garner sympathy for the Israeli aggressors in Gaza by showing an image of a family picking through the rubble of their home after a rocket strike destroyed it. It was this dramatic photo.

Diane said:

“Overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today. As Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky.

All part of a tinder box Israelis and Palestinians and here an Israeli family trying to salvage what they can. One woman standing speechless among the ruins.” Diane Sawyer

These are the images from Gaza that are too graphic for many US news outlets to publish

Israeli air strikes killed 22 Palestinians in Gaza on Wednesday, including fifteen women and children. That leaves the two-day death toll at 43. More than 370 people have so far been wounded.

Those numbers don't convey the horror of what's happening right now in Gaza. Neither do most of the photographs you'll find in news media. Streets and buildings have been blasted to rubble, yes. People are broken and mourning. Those things must be documented. But too often, we hide from the most graphic scenes of violence and death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At least 76 Palestinians killed by Israeli rockets. 25 killed last night. Including 5 children. News of 8 more killed today. More than 500 injured. The Israeli military said it hit 322 targets last night. Bringing the total number to 750. Zero Israeli casualties.

On Thursday, 15 rockets struck Israel. 7 were intercepted. Iron Dome is scoring less than 50% success rate. The home-made rockets fired by the Palestinians cost less than $1000. A single Iron Dome missile costs between $50,000 and $100,000 (not counting the launching and control systems). From a resource point of view, Israel is losing this battle, but they don't care because they are not paying for these $100,000 each missiles; YOU are!

The Palestinian father who was blown clean out of his home: Tragedy of man who came round to learn his wife and son had died in direct hit on his house

A Palestinian father was blasted yards from his house in the Gaza Strip after a direct missile strike that killed his wife and son.

Shocking photos of Mustafa Malaka sprawled in the rubble emerged this evening as Israeli bombing of the Hamas-controlled region instesified.

Today the Israeli army stepped up its offensive, killing 17 Palestinians including 11 women and children in strikes, hiking the overall death toll to 47 in two days, hospital officials said. More than 300 people have been wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article contains a lot of photographs of the destruction to Gaza done by Israel. Take a look at them, then compare with this photo of the "damage" caused by a rocket from Gaza to Israel!

No wonder ABC tried to show photos of Gaza bomb victims and claim they were Israelis!

Netanyahu: Cease-fire with Hamas is not on Israel's agenda

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Thursday that a cease-fire with Hamas was not on the agenda.

Netanyahu was asked a number of times whether the government had certain political goals and whether he was in contact with Egypt or other countries to try to bring about a cease-fire through diplomatic means, MKs said.

"I am not talking to anybody about a cease-fire right now," Netanyahu told the committee. "It's not even on the agenda."

Jewish Groups’ Whitewash of Israeli Racism Ensures It Will Fester

As news spreads of the circumstances surrounding last week’s murder of 17-year-old Palestinian Mohammed Abu Khdair, many international observers are responding with incredulity. Israeli police say the teenager was kidnapped from his home, beaten in the head, forced to consume a flammable liquid, and then burned alive. They also say they believe the crime was carried out by Jewish Israelis, acting out of racist hatred for non-Jewish Palestinian Arabs.

These details have come as a shock for many Jewish people living outside of Israel, who find it hard to believe that Jews could be capable of such venomous violence. Multiple viral videos of Jewish Israelis chanting “Death to Arabs!” in downtown Jerusalem earlier that same evening have added to the bewilderment of Israel’s liberal supporters in the Diaspora

Israelis have the upper hand when it comes to vengeance

Shock and anger have engulfed Israeli and Palestinian societies since they learnt last week of the barbarous murder of children from their communities. Hours after three Israeli teenagers’ bodies were located, long after their abduction, a Palestinian youth, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, was kidnapped, beaten and burnt to death, apparently as revenge.

Cultures of Hate: Israelis, not Palestinians, Excel at Vengeance

As Human Rights Watch warned, Israel’s recent actions – mass arrests; armed raids; the killing of Palestinians, including minors; lockdowns of cities, house demolitions; and air strikes – amounted to “collective punishment”, international law’s euphemism for revenge, against Palestinians.

Breaking news!: Sunni insurgents take over nuclear materials in northern Iraq

They just keep tryin to set up a false flag! Some of the commenters have already caught on. Not goin ta work!

Iraq says “terrorist groups” have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country's north. Iraq's UN envoy has appealed for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad."

According to Iraq's UN ambassador, Mohamed Ali Alhakim, about 40 kilograms of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University. He added that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."

"Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state," Alhakim told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

“It’s genocide — the killing of entire families is genocide by Israel against our Palestinian people,” he told the meeting of Palestinian leadership at his Ramallah bureau. “What’s happening now is a war against the Palestinian people as a whole and not against the [terrorist] factions.”

“Shall we recall Auschwitz?” he added.

“We know that Israel is not defending itself; it is defending settlements, its main project,” Abbas continued. “We are moving in several ways to stop the Israeli aggression and spilling of Palestinian blood, including talking to Egyptian President [Abdel Fattah] el-Sissi and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.”

Hamas: We attempted to hit the nuclear reactor in Dimona

Three rockets were launched at Dimona in southern Israel on Wednesday afternoon. The Iron Dome intercepted one rocket before it could land, while two other rockets landed in open areas.

Dimona is the location of Israel's nuclear reactor. There was no indication that rockets damaged any part of the reactor.
Related:

Hamas claimed responsibility for the rockets, stating that it had been attempting to hit the nuclear reactor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like confirmation that HAMAS is claiming credit for these rockets, because from a public relations point of view, this is a very bad thing to do. Had the reactor been hit, EVERYONE (including the Palestinians) would suffer, and world opinion would turn against HAMAS.

Obviously Israel benefits from this rocket attack politically, especially since no harm came to the bomb factory at Dimona.

Israeli intelligence report: Palestinians possess thousands of rockets

Hamas and the other Palestinian terrorist organizations controlling the Gaza Strip are continuing their rocket attacks and they are suspected of possessing thousands of rockets, whose maximum range enables them to attack central Israel including the city of Tel Aviv, according to an intelligence report by the Amit Meir Information Center released on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not that I think that is true, but if it were, it tells us that the Israeli starvation blockage of Gaza, justified to keep HAMAS from obtaining the materials needed to build rockets, is and has been a total failure!

The Israeli culture of vengeance on full display

These horrifying events should serve as a lesson in the obscene futility of vengeance. As a relative of one of the murdered children observed: “There is no difference between blood and blood.”

Sadly, that was not the message implicit in much of last week’s coverage. On social media, a juxtaposition of pictures from the same day’s New York Times showed how easy it is to forget not only that our blood is the same but that grief is too.

A headline about Israelis’ “heartbreak” was illustrated movingly by the families of the three Israeli teenagers huddled together, overwhelmed by their loss. A report on the killing of 16-year-old Abu Khdeir, on the other hand, was accompanied by an image of masked youths throwing stones.

U.S. Caving In to Israeli Intransigence

The murder of three Israeli youth by unknown Palestinians and the less-publicized but equally tragic murder of three Palestinian youth by Israelis, along with Israeli bombing of urban areas in Gaza and the arrest and detention of hundreds of Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces, serves as a reminder that Israeli-Palestinian peace is still a long way off.

The boy, fortunately, managed to escape.

Near Bethlehem, a number of settlers driving an Israeli vehicle into Beit Sahour attempted to kidnap a Palestinian child.

The attempted abduction took place near the YMCA Center, in Beit Sahour.

PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE 101

Last night I posted a short piece about sirens sounding in Jerusalem …. I mentioned that Just moments ago sirens sounded throughout the Jerusalem area. In its greatest display of psychological warfare, Israel wants us all to be very afraid ….Most of us are at what Israel’s next move will be.

Today it became obvious that the government is failing in its attempt to instill the fear it had hoped to. Schools were open, transportation ran as scheduled, all shops were open for business.

In my own neighbourhood which is usually very peaceful it was ‘business as usual’ throughout the community shopping centre. All of the local eateries were full of customers enjoying a non scorching day. Palestinians were stocking up at the Supermarket in preparation for their ‘Iftar’, the meal eaten at the end of a fast. Everything looked normal and not a word was heard about the sirens of the night before.

Another glorious failure for zion.

As is said above,

DON’T FALL FOR IT!

Israel Rules Out Ceasefire, Mobilizes 40,000 for Gaza Invasion

Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich today ruled out any ceasefire negotiations with Hamas, as the Israeli military continues to escalate airstrikes against the tiny Gaza Strip, and is building up for a ground invasion.

The cabinet has given the military authorization to mobilize up to 40,000 reservists as part of preparations for a ground invasion of Gaza, though so far there is no confirmation that such an invasion yet. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did, however, say that whatever sort of war Israel carries out “may take time.”

Army sources also say that the planning right now is for a “long operation” against Gaza, and with so many hawks in the government pushing for a full conquest of the strip it is hard to imagine Israel stopping short of such a war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My bet would be that there will be a ground invasion of Gaza, and sooner rather than later.

The IDF will do as much human damage as possible; innocent women and children will be cut down in the streets in a hail of bullets; and the deaths of these innocents will simply be characterized as "collateral damage" by the Israeli government.

Kidnapped Israelis shot 10 times with silenced gun

Three Israeli teenagers who were abducted by Palestinians in the occupied West Bank last month were shot at least 10 times with a silenced gun in what appeared to be premeditated killings, a U.S. official involved in the investigation said.

The disclosure clashed with speculation by some Israeli and Palestinian commentators that the captors intended to take hostages for a prisoner exchange but panicked and shot them.

US condemns rocket fire from Gaza into Israel

The United States Tuesday condemned rocket fire by Hamas militants into Israel, and said it was concerned for civilians on both sides, after Israeli air strikes in Gaza killed 15 people.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest also urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep a diplomatic channel open with Palestinians to resolve the crisis sparked by the murders of three Israeli teenagers and a Palestinian youth.

“We strongly condemn the continuing rocket fire into Israel and the deliberate targeting of civilians by terrorist organizations in Gaza,” Earnest said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is totally impotent to stop this.

The "peace process" so touted by John Kerry has literally gone up in flames as a complete, thorough, epic fail.
