What's in a name? Quite a lot, where the military is concerned

I am bemused by the name of Israel's latest military operation against Hamas (and the usual cull of toddlers) in Gaza. The Israeli military calls it Operation Cast Lead. Come again? "Cast Iron" I might understand, though it would woefully misrepresent Israel's policies since they will in due course talk to the "blood-soaked terrorists" of Hamas when it suites their purposes just as they eventually talked to the "blood-soaked terrorists" of the PLO.

The true story behind this war is not the one Israel is telling

The world isn't just watching the Israeli government commit a crime in Gaza; we are watching it self-harm. This morning, and tomorrow morning, and every morning until this punishment beating ends, the young people of the Gaza Strip are going to be more filled with hate, and more determined to fight back, with stones or suicide vests or rockets. Israeli leaders have convinced themselves that the harder you beat the Palestinians, the softer they will become. But when this is over, the rage against Israelis will have hardened, and the same old compromises will still be waiting by the roadside of history, untended and unmade.

The Palestinian story: Remember us

When the passage of time finally brings the men of many lands to the tables of judgment, politicians from countries that have emboldened Israel with their silence will gaze into the eyes of delegations from around the world only to see the same eyes gazing back. Remember us for we may not be at that table.

Israel seek to create fear among Arabs

After the defeat inflicted by Hezbollah and the inability of Israel to launch an attack on Iran it was almost inevitable that they would attack Hamas, because Hamas is defying the Israeli will. According to the Israeli papers, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak was planning the attack before the last ceasefire and they were just waiting for a provocation from the Palestinians. On November 4, the Israelis broke the ceasefire with Hamas knowing full well--and if you review the Israeli papers, they say so knowing full well that when they killed six militants in Gaza the Palestinians would retaliate and then Israel would have the pretext to invade. Therefore, the first goal was to restore the fear of Israel among Arabs by inflicting a bloodbath in Gaza.

Roseanne Barr: Israel is a 'Nazi state'

"I said Israel will attack any boat carrying doctors and medical supplies," Barr wrote on her blog, adding that, "Israel is a NAZI state. The Jewish Soul is being tortured in Israel." The Emmy-award winning actress, who has courted controversy in the past, also condemned Israel's counter-terror operation against Hamas, asserting that, "The destruction of the Jews in Israel has been assured with this inhuman attack on civilians in Gaza."

Fatah marks Hamas targets for Israel

According to the reports, Hamas said that the former Fatah leader in Gaza, Mohammed Dahlan, whose forces were defeated by Hamas in June 2007, met Israeli intelligence officials several weeks ago to discuss Israeli plans for a strike on Gaza.

If you (or I) were Palestinian

This week I spoke with my students about the Gaza war, in the context of a class on national security. One student, who had expressed rather conservative, accepted opinions - that is opinions tending slightly to the right - succeeded in surprising me. Without any provocation on my part, he opened his heart and confessed: "If I were a young Palestinian," he said, "I'd fight the Jews fiercely, even by means of terror. Anyone who says anything different is telling you lies."

Besieged Palestinians battle to find burial spaces

Salim Abu Sadaq and six of his relatives scrabbled around in the soil of Gaza City's Sheikh Radwan cemetery for two hours yesterday, searching for a space in which to lay his cousin to rest. In the end, he opened his grandfather's grave and moved the older man's remains aside to make space for the body of his grandson.

Hamas resilient despite Israeli onslaught

"Our spirits are high, because Israel has failed to reach its target," said Hamas legislator Mushir al-Masri. "They conducted powerful strikes in the first few days, but in reality Hamas is stronger, we rose from the rubble and hit places we've never hit before."

Muslim family removed from AirTran flight for "safest seat" remark

"The conversation, as we were walking through the plane trying to find our seats, was just about where the safest place in an airplane is," Sahin said. "We were (discussing whether it was safest to sit near) the wing, or the engine or the back or the front, but that's it. We didn't say anything else that would raise any suspicion." The conversation did not contain the words "bomb," "explosion," "terror" or other words that might have aroused suspicion, Irfan said.

Another case of "flying while Muslim."

Rabbi Calls on World Jews to Help Gazans

It is the duty of every "monotheistic Jew" to help these people, Golestaninejad said. He called on his coreligionists to support Gazans with their financial, medical and food aid, FNA reported on Wednesday. Zionists behave against the teachings of Judaism, adding that any assistance to the Zionists is considered religiously unlawful, he said.

Darkness in Qassam-Land

This war is wrong. It is wrong because it cannot achieve its manifest goals -- long-term "normal" life for the residents of the Negev region. The war is morally wrong because most of the victims are Palestinian and Israeli civilians whose only "crime" is that they live in Negev or Gaza. This war is wrong because it is not heading toward a viable solution of the conflict but is instead creating more hatred and greater determination on the part of both peoples to harm one another. It is wrong because it is leading to stronger feelings that we have nothing to lose by striking further, with greater force. This war is wrong because, even before the last smoke rises from the rubble and the last ambulance carries the dead and wounded to hospitals, our leaders will find themselves signing a new agreement for a cease-fire.

The rotten state of Egypt is too powerless and corrupt to act

President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt a country where 'the idea of service has simply ceased to exist'

The true disgrace of Egypt, however, is not in its response to the slaughter in Gaza. It is the corruption that has become embedded in an Egyptian society where the idea of service – health, education, genuine security for ordinary people – has simply ceased to exist. It's a land where the first duty of the police is to protect the regime, where protesters are beaten up by the security police, where young women objecting to Mubarak's endless regime – likely to be passed on caliph-like to his son Gamal, whatever we may be told – are sexually molested by plain-clothes agents, where prisoners in the Tora-Tora complex are forced to rape each other by their guards.

Gaza conflict death toll

Click here to see the real facts on the ground...

How can any "human being" support this outrage? Frankkly, I don't know who I'm more pissed with at the moment - the Zionists or the Arab and so-called Muslim leaders. Certain Arab countries have spent billions of dollars in advanced weapons in recent years. My question is, who are they going to use them on? Iran? Or, maybe their own people. Obviously, these so-called Arab leaders must have purchased the weapons to kill other Muslims since they have bowed down to the Christians and befriended the Zionists who are resently slaughtering their brothers in Palestine...

Is the UN complicit in Israel's massacre in Gaza?

Over the last two days, various UN officials stated that the percentage of civilians among those Palestinians killed in the current Israeli war of aggression on Gaza is about "25 percent" and is "likely to increase." Assuming the best of intentions, stating such a painfully low figure reflects shabby research or scandalous incompetence. At worst, it reveals intentional deception and misinformation that can only benefit the already massive and well-oiled Israeli public relations machine.

The real goal of the slaughter in Gaza

The air campaign is paring down Hamas's ability to function effectively as the ruler of Gaza. It is undermining Hamas's political power bases. The lesson is not that Hamas can be destroyed militarily but that it that can be weakened domestically. Israel apparently hopes to persuade the Hamas leadership, as it did Arafat for a while, that its best interests are served by cooperating with Israel. The message is: forget about your popular mandate to resist the occupation and concentrate instead on remaining in power with our help.

Ahmadinejad: Moses would punish Israel

"These minority of criminals and thieves are liars because they represent themselves as followers of the prophet. If Moses had been present today, he would first punish the Zionists for their conduct which is even worse than that of the Pharaoh," he said.

I agree...

Iran's Jewish community condems Gaza massacre

Iran's Jewish Community released a statement on Tuesday, saying that Israel's deliberate killing of Palestinians is in direct contradiction to Jewish principles and beliefs.

There is a difference between the great religion of Judaism and the psychopathic racist doctrine of Zionism...

Robert Fisk: Leaders lie, civilians die, and lessons of history are ignored

We've got so used to the carnage of the Middle East that we don't care any more – providing we don't offend the Israelis. It's not clear how many of the Gaza dead are civilians, but the response of the Bush administration, not to mention the pusillanimous reaction of Gordon Brown, reaffirm for Arabs what they have known for decades: however they struggle against their antagonists, the West will take Israel's side. As usual, the bloodbath was the fault of the Arabs – who, as we all know, only understand force.

Five sisters killed in Gaza while they slept

'You will be martyrs': These were the words spoken by the surviving sister as her five siblings, Jawaher, four, Dina, eight, Samar, 12, Ikram, 15 and Tahrir, 17, lay dying beneath the rubble of their home

The five Palestinian sisters were fast asleep when a night-time Israeli airstrike hit the next-door mosque in Gaza. One of the walls collapsed on to their small asbestos-roofed home and they were all killed in their beds. The eldest sister, Tahrir, was 17 years old, the youngest, Jawaher, just four.

What kind of people would do this?? Can these people really be "God's Chosen People??" These people who did this are chosen alright - but not by God. The murderers who did this are chosen by Satan!!!

How Israeli Leaders Kill for their People's Votes

Seemingly, in Israeli politics, Arab blood is translated into votes. It would obviously be very reasonable to charge Livni, Barak and the current IDF Chief of Staff Ashkenazi with first-degree murder, crimes against humanity and the obvious breach of the Geneva Convention. But it would be far more intelligible to take into account that Israel is a ‘democracy’. Livni, Barak and Ashkenazi are giving the Israeli people that which they want: it is called Arab blood and it must come in vast quantity. This repetitive murderous practice, conducted by Israeli politicians reflects on the Israeli people as a whole rather than just a few politicians and generals. We are dealing here with a barbarian society that is politically driven by bloodthirstiness and lethal inclinations. There should be no mistake, there is no room for these people amongst nations.

The Hanukah Massacre on Gaza–Judaism in its Finest Hour

“When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…”

–Book of Deuteronomy, 7:1-8

Boycott committee: "Stop the massacre in Gaza - boycott Israel now!"

Today, the Israeli occupation army committed a new massacre in Gaza, causing the death and injury of hundreds of Palestinian civilians, including a yet unknown number of school children who were headed home from school when the first Israeli military strikes started. This latest bloodbath, although far more ruthless than all its predecessors, is not Israel's first. It culminates months of an Israeli siege of Gaza that should be widely condemned and prosecuted as an act of genocide against the 1.5 million Palestinians in the occupied coastal strip.

Why there were rockets

How to explain things to totally ignorant Americans

Israel is a country that builds racial colonies into Palestine, just like the White South Africa did in South Africa. They have racially segregated cites and towns in Palestine which are for Jews only and were built by force and are protected by a standing army. The entire world is against this other than America. And America's Military Industrial Complex makes far too much money off of the conflicts to ever change its mind.

Furthermore even though "some Arabs" live in Israel, they can't even go to High school with Jews. They are separated at the age of 14 into separate schools by race. Secondly Israel has mandatory military service and refusing to do this equates to secondary rights as citizens. You earn special rights by joining or having joined the military. Many Arab Israelis won't join the military as they are 99% certain they will just be used to shoot at other Arabs. Thus the Jews in Israel effectively get a proxy pecking order of citizenry with the Arabs as an under class with less rights.

Why are they fighting? Because Israel maintains a military occupation, the same as America does in Iraq. The Palestinians who choose to go the route of Gorilla war do so because Israel's army has forced 6 million of them to live in refugee camps, and uses the remainder for virtual slave labor (two dollars a week on average) and has demolished thousands of homes and killed tens of thousands of people. THAT is why Palestinians hate them, not some irrational brainwashing from Islam.

Obviously militant forms of the religion are going to arise and become popular when their country is under occupation and people live in a Hell on Earth. They can't even drive on the same roads as the Jews. They have color coded license plates. And yet Zionist Settlements like Hebron can be composed of the most fanatic of Settlers who can vandalize, steal, and destroy property at will with no threat of the law because they are protected by Israeli solders who sit in towers or in the apartheid wall and protect them.

That's the other thing. The wall. The wall is not for defense. For one it isn't even on the border. the wall cuts into Palestine and wraps around Israel's internationally illegal Settlements AKA racial colonies. That is what it is protecting, Israeli theft.

Suicide bombing (which haven't happened since 2005) occur because of occupation not Islam. It is the same reason they happen in Vietnam (which isn't even Muslim) or in Japan, or Lebanon etc. It's the occupation stupid.

How would America and Americans react if we were under a foreign military occupation. Them saying it was the will of their god to do it would hardly find an accepting ear. Oh "god" told you to kill my children and demolish my house, oh well in that case it's oK.... Not going to happen.

Israel needs to get out of Palestine. Remove all the settlements and the wall, lift all blockades, and try peace and trade. Just imagine how well would relations be with Canada if the US started destroying cities, building colonies, and blockading ports? Not very good. How much do you think they would trade with us? Probably nothing. There would be a war obviously. And even after losing (Sorry Canada but you wold lose) do you think the Canadian people would ever stop fighting on their own? Do you think they would ever stop attacks on America so long as the US held an occupation? No way. And would have nothing to do with religion. And how could America blame THEM for the attacks if the US had the military occupation? Or imagine the US trying to claim it was Defense? And Canada was trying to push the US into the Sea.

But that is what is going on with Israel and Palestine. A far larger military power is just brutalizing its neighbors, colonizing them 17th century style, and swiping their vital natural resources like water.

What brought about the rockets? Months of blockade and starvation. As well as weekly "incursions" into Gaza by the Israeli army to "kill militants" but often got civilians. How can the news ignore the blockade and just talk about rockets? Because this is America. The same nation that invaded Iraq based on complete bullshit most of which originated form Israel too.

If your folks won't read and need to see a film then show them this Peace Propaganda and the Promised Land.

or if they get into it just say this

some other good links
A time line of IsraelTo all the morons who say Palestine never existed

Do it soon because
Israel is preparing a ground invasion.

People of America or wherever you live. We need to go out into the streets and protest this war. Don't wait for some giant organization. Just go make a sign from walmart or whatever and go sit at your nearest mall or crowded place. Film it. You probably will get removed but the message will get out. I will post all the videos and if the ADL youtube censors you just use Russian RU tube or host it yourself.

We have got to act. Now you've got the information form this forum. GO spread that on the web and then go outside camera in hand (if you have one) and a sign and get tossed from some public place.

Report: Egypt stabbed Hamas in back

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Saturday blamed Hamas for provoking Israel into attacking the strip. "Egypt warned for a long time, and someone who ignores warnings is responsible for the outcome," said Gheit.

Clearly, this attack was coordinated among the United States, Israel, and certain Arab countries. It's interesting that the Nation showing the most support for their Arab Muslim brothers is Persian - Iran...

Disinformation, secrecy and lies: How the Gaza offensive came about

Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago, even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas. According to the sources, Barak maintained that although the lull would allow Hamas to prepare for a showdown with Israel, the Israeli army needed time to prepare, as well.

Which proves what the Palestinians have said all along - Israel is a nation of murderous, land-grabbing and lying psychopaths who cannot be trusted...
