The New Nazis

Knowing the documented truth about the creation of Israel by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing, and watching - mainly thanks to Al Jazeera and Press TV live feeds - the war on Gaza, Israel's latest display of state terrorism, I have come to a conclusion. It is time to give Israel's hardcore Zionists their real name. They are the New Nazis.

The Israeli Torture Template

Rape, Feces and Urine-Dipped Cloth Sacks

With mounting evidence that a shadowy group of former Israeli Defense Force and General Security Service (Shin Bet) Arabic-speaking interrogators were hired by the Pentagon under a classified "carve out" sub-contract to brutally interrogate Iraqi prisoners at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison, one only needs to examine the record of abuse of Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners in Israel to understand what Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meant, when referring to new, yet to be released photos and videos, he said, "if these images are released to the public, obviously its going to make matters worse."

According to a political appointee within the Bush administration and U.S. intelligence sources, the interrogators at Abu Ghraib included a number of Arabic-speaking Israelis who also helped U.S. interrogators develop the "R2I" (Resistance to Interrogation) techniques. Many of the torture methods were developed by the Israelis over many years of interrogating Arab prisoners on the occupied West Bank and in Israel itself.

Jews tell Vatican: Holocaust denial is a crime

World Jewish leaders told Vatican officials that denying the Holocaust was "not an opinion but a crime" when they met on Monday to discuss a bishop they accuse of being anti-Semitic.

One can question the existence of God - but, to question the so-called holocaust is a crime..., go figure.

On the Wrong Side

Between Israel and the United States a gap has opened this week, a narrow gap, almost invisible – but it may widen into an abyss.

The first signs are small. In his inaugural speech, Obama proclaimed that "We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus – and nonbelievers." Since when? Since when do the Muslims precede the Jews? What has happened to the "Judeo-Christian Heritage"? (A completely false term to start with, since Judaism is much closer to Islam than to Christianity. For example: neither Judaism nor Islam supports the separation of religion and state.)

It's time to choose right over wrong

While President Barack Obama was busy closing down our military prison in Guantanamo and shuttering the Central Intelligence Agency's secret Gulag around the world, Republicans on Capitol Hill were stalling a vote on Obama’s choice for attorney general, apparently in hopes of negotiating a plea bargain on war crimes.

Israel’s Lies

Israel’s government would like the world to believe that Hamas launched its Qassam rockets because that is what terrorists do and Hamas is a generic terrorist group. In fact, Hamas is no more a ‘terror organisation’ (Israel’s preferred term) than the Zionist movement was during its struggle for a Jewish homeland.

Saudi Prince warns Obama: US - Saudi relationship at risk

In my decades as a public servant, I have strongly promoted the Arab-Israeli peace process. During recent months, I argued that the peace plan proposed by Saudi Arabia could be implemented under an Obama administration if the Israelis and Palestinians both accepted difficult compromises. I told my audiences this was worth the energies of the incoming administration for, as the late Indian diplomat Vijaya Lakshmi Nehru Pandit said: “The more we sweat in peace, the less we bleed in war.”

But after Israel launched its bloody attack on Gaza, these pleas for optimism and co-operation now seem a distant memory. In the past weeks, not only have the Israeli Defence Forces murdered more than 1,000 Palestinians, but they have come close to killing the prospect of peace itself. Unless the new US administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the US-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk.

Bishop's Holocaust remarks spark outrage, threaten Jewish-Vatican ties

The Vatican's relations with Jews risked a new crisis Friday after an excommunicated British bishop - reportedly in line for rehabilitation - said that historical evidence "is hugely against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gassed" during World War II.

I agree ~ ever wonder why the ONLY subject NOT open to research, discussion and debate is the so-called holocaust?

Israel to approve aid for IDF officers accused of Gaza war crimes

The government is set to approve a bill Sunday to grant aid and support to Israel Defense Forces officers in cases where they face suits for alleged war crimes from Operation Cast Lead.

And, I expect they will need it...

Israelis forced to admit White Phosphorous used in Gaza

After weeks of strenuous denial that it had used white phosphorous in the heavily populated Gaza Strip, Israel finally admitted yesterday that the controversial weapon had been deployed in its offensive.

The army's use of white phosphorous -- with its distinctive shell burst of dozens of separate smoke trails -- was revealed on January 5, and denied by the army. Now, in the face of mounting evidence, Israel has been forced to backtrack.

Obama appoints Mitchell as Middle East Envoy

Mr. Mitchell would head to the Middle East as soon as possible to shore up the fragile truce between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Israel must re-open the border crossing into the Gaza Strip "to allow the flow of aid and commerce," Mr. Obama said.

"Hamas must end its rocket fire... The United States and our partners will support a credible anti-smuggling and interdiction regime so that Hamas cannot re-arm," he added.

But Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan told al-Jazeera television that Mr. Obama would fail in the Middle East unless he changed his position.

Israelis are living high on US expense account

There's a memorable scene in the Stephen Spielberg film ‘Munich’. After the 1972 Munich Olympic Games killings of Israeli athletes, prime minister Golda Meir tells confidants she wants to show the plotters that killing Jews "is expensive". She then organises for the assassination of each of the plotters. Today, it is Israel itself that has become expensive. Most directly, it is very expensive to the US, which subsidises and arms it.

UN Special Rapporteur likens Gaza to Warsaw Ghetto

UN special rapporteur Richard Falk called for an independent inquiry into Israel's violation of international humanitarian law. Falk said Israel's actions against the besieged Gazans are reminiscent of "the worst kind of international memories of the Warsaw Ghetto" which included the starvation and murder of Polish Jews by Nazi Germany in World War Two.

Zionism; a Disease of the Mind

To virtually incarcerate the Palestinian people inside degrading cages, destroying their livelihoods, confiscating their lands, stealing their water and uprooting their trees, and then to condemn their legitimate resistance as terrorism is a disease of the mind, notes Zaid Nabulsi.

Travel advisory issued for top IDF (Israeli Death Force) officers

IDF officers intending to travel to Europe, whether for business or pleasure, have been advised to contact the Judge Advocate General's Office prior to leaving Israel; and some may be instructed not to leave the country. The advisory has been issued following Israel's concern that international arrest warrants may be issued against officers who were involved in the Israeli offensive in Gaza, on charges of war crimes.

Gideon Levy / Gaza war ended in utter failure for Israel

On the morrow of the return of the last Israeli soldier from Gaza, we can determine with certainty that they had all gone out there in vain. This war ended in utter failure for Israel.

This goes beyond the profound moral failure, which is a grave matter in itself, but pertains to its inability to reach its stated goals. In other words, the grief is not complemented by failure. We have gained nothing in this war save hundreds of graves, some of them very small, thousands of maimed people, much destruction and the besmirching of Israel's image.

Israel's Treatment of Palestinians Contrasted with the (so-called) Holocaust

The photos on the left were taken during World War Two and show the Nazi's treatment of captive Jews. While the photos on the right illustrate the chilling parallels to be found in modern Israel's treatment of Palestinians. All of which may explain why the Zionists take such offence when compared to Nazis, the similarities are too obvious to ignore and give a new dimension to the label “Zio-Nazi”.

Now we've all seen through the Israeli government's excuses

If the Hamas rockets are so lethal, why doesn't Israel swap an F-16 for some?

The worrying part about whether the ceasefire in Gaza can hold together will be whether the international community can stop the flow of arms to the terrorists. Because Israel's getting their planes and tanks and missiles from somewhere and until this supply is cut off there's every chance it could start up again. The disregard for life from these terrorists and their supporters is shocking. For example Thomas Friedman, the New York Times columnist, wrote that the purpose of the Israeli attack must be to "inflict a heavy death toll and heavy pain on the Gaza population".

Robert Fisk: So far, Obama's missed the point on Gaza...

... for the people of the Middle East, the absence of the word "Gaza" – indeed, the word "Israel" as well – was the dark shadow over Obama's inaugural address. Didn't he care? Was he frightened? Did Obama's young speech-writer not realise that talking about black rights – why a black man's father might not have been served in a restaurant 60 years ago – would concentrate Arab minds on the fate of a people who gained the vote only three years ago but were then punished because they voted for the wrong people? It wasn't a question of the elephant in the china shop. It was the sheer amount of corpses heaped up on the floor of the china shop.

Robert Fisk: Posturing and laughter as victims rot

Mahmoud Abbas stepped further into humiliation by saying the only option for Arabs isto make peace with Israel

The front page of the Beirut daily As-Safir said it all yesterday. Across the top was a terrible photograph of the bloated body of a Palestinian man newly discovered in the ruins of his home while two male members of his family shrieked and roared their grief. Below, at half the size, was a photograph from Israel of Western leaders joking with Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister. Olmert was roaring with laughter. Silvio Berlusconi, arms on the back of Olmert's shoulders, was also joshing and roaring – with laughter, not grief – and on Olmert's right was Nicolas Sarkozy of France wearing his stupidest of smiles. Only Chancellor Merkel appeared to understand the moral collapse. No smiles from Germany.

'Israel has achieved nothing from this'

Along a row of shattered houses a veiled woman sat in a chair surrounded by broken pieces of furniture and concrete. She waved towards the sandwiched layers of flattened concrete where her six-story home once stood. "When Israel does this is just makes us stronger," she said. "We have even more sympathy with Hamas now."

International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network condems Israel for Gaza massacre

We write with grief and rage as we watch the horrifying Israeli air and ground attacks on Gaza. As Jews committed to ending Zionism, the founding ideology of Israel, and all forms of colonialism, we stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, who continue to struggle in the face of these attacks, much as they have against more than 60 years of ethnic cleansing and racism. As Joseph Massad recently wrote, Gaza is in uprising against genocide, and is receiving today the same indifference from the capitals of the West that the rebels in the Warsaw Ghetto received in 1943.

We stand with the hundreds of thousands who have taken the streets in solidarity with Gaza’s resistance. We stand with all those who struggle against racism, dispossession and genocide. We stand with the majority. We will not be silent on Gaza.

'Vague Israeli hope shattered in Gaza'

"What is clear is that, despite vague Israeli hopes that Hamas could be completely removed, that has not happened," a news analysis by The New Times says. Tel Aviv waged an "all-out" war on Hamas by launching massive attacks against the densely-populated Gaza Strip on December 27, 2008.

Israel must be judged at the International Criminal Court - Universal petition

Approximately 300 among NGOs and associations ask the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to open an investigation on the war crimes committed by Israel in Gaza. Our support is indispensable. Sign and circulate this urgent «universal petition».

Saudi Arabia to donate $1 billion to rebuild Gaza

President Hosni Mubarak, of Egypt, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Sabah Al Sabah, Amir of Kuwait and Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Amir of Qatar, from left, walk in to the Arab Economic Summit at the Bayan Palace in Kuwait, Monday, Jan. 19, 2009. The Saudi king said an Arab initiative offering peace with Israel will not remain on the table forever. King Abdullah says Israel has to understand that the choice between war and peace will not always stay open.

The Saudi king said Monday his country will donate $1 billion to help rebuild the Gaza Strip after the devastating Israeli offensive and told Israel that an Arab initiative offering peace will not remain on the table forever.

No comment...

Hamas: We killed 80; Lost 48

Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, insisted on Monday, 19, that 22 days of massive Israeli attacks failed to weaken its forces, giving specific figures of its losses and gains in the war. "We confirm the martyrdom of 48 Qassam fighters in the Israeli attacks," Abu Obeida, Al-Qassam spokesman, told local, Arab and international reporters in downtown Gaza City. He refuted Israeli claims of killing more than 500 Hamas members during its three-week Operation Cast Lead or taking any prisoners. "None of our fighters has been detained by the Israeli occupation forces," insisted a defiant Abu Obeida.

The Hamas military wing insisted it has not only been able to withstand the Israeli offensive, but accomplish some successes for itself. "We have counted closely and accurately the death of 49 Israeli soldiers and injury of hundreds others after being directly hit by our fire," Abu Obeida told reporters. "Others were killed in our mortar attacks on soldiers gatherings, targeting of tanks, sniping of soldiers," he added. "So we estimate that no less than 80 Israeli soldiers have been killed in the battlefield."

As was the case with the 2006 war between Israel and Hizbullah, Hamas' estimate will be quietly confirmed by Israel in about a year...

A pointless war has led to a moral defeat for Israel

Even on its own terms, the campaign has failed. Israeli authorities will insist that they have limited the ability of Hamas to launch rocket attacks. But the ostensible war aim was destroying that capability completely. Israel will also claim that its campaign has exposed a lack of support for Hamas in many Arab capitals; that Hamas' position as the ruling authority in Gaza has been undermined; and that Hamas has been revealed as little more than a terrorist proxy acting on behalf of and armed by Syria and Iran. But the reality is that the status of Hamas as the preferred vehicle for Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation has been enhanced by the indiscriminate brutality of the military assault.

Punishing the Palestinians

In the long sixty-year tortured history of the Palestinian expulsion from their lands, Congress has maintained that it is always the Palestinians, the Palestinian Authority, and now Hamas who are to blame for all hostilities and their consequences with the Israeli government. The latest illustration of this Washington puppet show, backed by the most modern weapons and billions of taxpayer dollars annually sent to Israel, was the grotesquely one-sided Resolutions whisked through the Senate and the House of Representatives.

While a massive bombing and invasion of Gaza was underway, the resolution blaming Hamas for all the civilian casualties and devastation-99% of it inflicted on Palestinians-zoomed through the Senate by voice vote and through the House by a vote of 390 to 5 with 22 legislators voting present. There is more dissent against this destruction of Gaza among the Israeli people, the Knesset, the Israeli media, and Jewish-Americans than among the dittoheads on Capitol Hill.

Another War, Another Defeat

The Gaza offensive has succeeded in punishing the Palestinians but not in making Israel more secure

Israelis and their American supporters claim that Israel learned its lessons well from the disastrous 2006 Lebanon war and has devised a winning strategy for the present war against Hamas. Of course, when a ceasefire comes, Israel will declare victory. Don’t believe it. Israel has foolishly started another war it cannot win.

Obama reaches out to Muslims

“This Tuesday, we can reaffirm our own veneration and love for our country and our democracy,” he said yesterday in a radio address. “We can once again provide an example to the world.” His inauguration presents a “unique opportunity to reboot America’s image in the world and also in the Muslim world in particular”, he said in an interview.

Considering the number of Zionists Obama has named to his administration, I don't expect the good President Elect's reach to extend very far...

Journalist calls Livni 'terrorist' during press conference on Gaza operation

...When the man was asked to finish his question, he yelled out that Livni had been speaking for an hour and that the journalists weren't being allowed to ask questions. He then asked since when the U.S. has been hosting "terrorists".

About time...

Pope sends monetary aid to Gazans

Pope Benedict XVI earlier condemned the Israeli raids against Gazan civilians, saying, "Violence, wherever it comes from and whatever form it takes, must be firmly condemned." He lamented "a renewed outbreak of violence provoking immense damage and suffering for the civilian population."

Israel set to swallow defeat in Gaza

"The Prime Minister [Ehud Olmert] will announce following this evening's cabinet meeting a unilateral ceasefire of hostilities in the Gaza Strip," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The proposed ceasefire has been met with strong criticism in the Israeli military, reported Debkafile, which is widely believed to have links with Israeli military and intelligence sources. According to the report, Israel will end its war on Gaza without achieving its primary goals, including "halting rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip".

Israel expects army officers to be prosecuted for war crimes

A number of human rights organizations, and the International Red Cross, have already indicated they are looking at breaches of international law. The whole question of the legality of the Gaza War is also being examined. Amnesty International has written to the United Nations Security Council calling for the establishment of full accountability for crimes committed in the Gaza conflict and for deployment of human rights monitors. In the letter, Amnesty says it wants the Security Council to “take firm action to ensure full accountability for war crimes and other serious abuses of international human rights and humanitarian law.”

A walk through Gaza

As you stroll, remember your tax dollars and silence made all of this possible...

America's War Crimes in Gaza by Paul Findley

The American people, largely unaware about our governments subservience to Israel, are unwitting partners in the inhuman brutality being inflicted on the people of Gaza. The fighter planes, helicopter gun-ships, tanks, and missiles used to visit death, injury and destruction upon the Palestinians are gifts of the U.S. government. In the UN Security Council, only the United States opposed a call for an immediate ceasefire.

Without Americas unconditional military and political support, Israel could never carry out the destruction of Gaza or its humiliation of Palestinians in the West Bank and other war crimes. Americas indifference to the plight of Gazans makes we wonder if our citizens have lost all capacity for moral outrage.

If you wish to find out who is really responsible for Israels scofflaw behavior and war crimes, look in the mirror. Citizens like you and me let lobbyists for a small, ruthless government make America its uncomplaining servant.

Ahmadinejad's letter to Saudi Arabia

As all free men and nations have raised their voices in protest of the Zionist regime and the atrocities it is committing in Gaza, it is expected of you as the Saudi Arabian King and the Custodian of the Two Holy Places, i.e Makkah and Medina, to break your silence on the catastrophic events and the massacre taking place in Gaza and take a clear stance on the murder of your children, who are dear to the Islamic Ummah.

Gideon Levy / Someone must stop Israel's rampant madness in Gaza

The streets of Gaza Thursday looked like killing fields in the midst of the "third stage" and worse. Israel is arrogantly ignoring the Security Council's resolution calling for a cease-fire and is shelling the UN compound in Gaza, as if to show its real feeling toward that institution. Emergency supplies intended for Gaza residents are going up in flames in the burning warehouses. Thick black smoke is rising from the burning flour sacks and the fuel reserves near them, covering the streets.

The sources of Arabs’ Shame: Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia

The often asked question, when it comes to the Palestinians, is about the role of Arab countries in the Palestinian struggle for freedom. The people not familiar with the political landscape of the area often see the Middle East as two camps, Arab countries on one side and Israel on the other. The reality is totally different. Israel has seldom been alone. Beside its usual American, French, British and other staunch allies, she has had the hidden backing of several Arab countries.

Ismail Haniyeh: My message to the West – Israel must stop the slaughter

Ismail Haniyeh, the Palestinian Prime Minister, speaking on Al-Aqsa TV in Gaza earlier this week

Despite its frantic efforts to conceal it, the root cause of Israel's criminal war on Gaza is the elections of January 2006, which saw Hamas win by a substantial majority. What occurred next was that Israel alongside the United States and the European Union joined forces in an attempt to quash the democratic will of the Palestinian people. They set about reversing the decision first by obstructing the formation of a national unity government and then by making a living hell for the Palestinian people through economic strangulation. The abject failure of all these machinations finally led to this vicious war. Israel's objective is to silence all voices that express the will of the Palestinian; thereafter it would impose its own terms for a final settlement depriving us of our land, our right to Jerusalem as the rightful capital of our future state and the Palestinian refugees' right to return to their homes.

Jewish British lawmaker likens Israel to Nazis

A veteran British Jewish lawmaker compared the Israeli offensive in Gaza Thursday to the Nazis who forced his family to flee from Poland. Gerald Kaufman, a member of the Jewish Labour movement linked to Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s ruling party, also called for an arms embargo against Israel.

"My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town . . . a German soldier shot her dead in her bed," Kaufman said during a parliamentary debate on the 20-day-old war which has left over 1,000 dead.

"My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza.

Obama's envoy to UN says Israel 'treated unfairly'

Susan Rice: UN can frustrate Americans

President-elect Barack Obama's choice as US envoy to the United Nations told lawmakers Thursday that the UN is often used to "willfully and unfairly condemn Israel."

Well, so much for the "change" President Elect Obama promised...

History did not begin with the Qassams

History did not begin with the Qassam rockets. But for us, the Israelis, history always begins when the Palestinians hurt us, and then the pain is completely decontextualized. We think that if we cause the Palestinians much greater pain, they will finally learn their lesson. Some term this "achievement."

Comparison of military strength of Israel and the Palestinians

As the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has once again flared up following Israel's ongoing air and ground assault on the Gaza Strip, the IMEU presents a comparison of Israeli and Palestinian military capabilities.

And, the Zionists thump their collective chests with pride.... This is not "war," this is a well armed modern army murdering basically defenseless civilians who would rather die than remain under a brutal occupation.

UN General Assembly accuses Israel of Gaza 'genocide'

The president of the UN General Assembly has condemned Israel's killings of Palestinians in its Gaza offensive as "genocide".

The IDF has no mercy for the children in Gaza nursery schools

The fighting in Gaza is "war deluxe." Compared with previous wars, it is child's play - pilots bombing unimpeded as if on practice runs, tank and artillery soldiers shelling houses and civilians from their armored vehicles, combat engineering troops destroying entire streets in their ominous protected vehicles without facing serious opposition. A large, broad army is fighting against a helpless population and a weak, ragged organization that has fled the conflict zones and is barely putting up a fight. All this must be said openly, before we begin exulting in our heroism and victory.

So, it makes one wonder how the Zionists can thump their chests with pride for winning a "war" with Hamas. Or, how the IDF (Israeli Death Force) can somehow regain its creditability for the 2006 defeat in Lebanon by killing women and children. Please remember that Hamas has no F-16 jet fighters, no Apache gunships, no ships, no personnnel carriers, no artillery, no tanks, no night vision goggles, no.., well, you get the message... But, Hamas does have a few things - faith, courage, and the hope for freedom and a brighter day for their children and loved ones...

U.S. may cut $1b in loan guarantees to Israel over West Bank settlements

The United States administration plans to cut about $1 billion from the balance of its loan guarantees to Israel because of its investments in the settlements. The balance currently stands at $4.6 billion.

Then, another $2 billion to rebuild Gaza. But, alas, this is only "loan guarantees" - I'm talking cold, hard cash...

Israel's free ride ends

As Israel pulverises Gaza, questions and doubts about Israeli policy are becoming more prominent in the American media

An American media that turned a blind eye to Israeli expansionism and human rights abuses ultimately made the Jewish state less, not more, secure. Without the US putting pressure on Israel to dismantle the settlements and loosen the blockade in Gaza, leaders there had neither the incentive nor the political cover to do so. Now that the American press is displaying a bit of courage in facing an unfolding catastrophe abetted by American leadership, perhaps our politicians will have room to do the same.

But, I'll wager this will only go so far...

The "Geostrategic" Imperative of "Greater Israel"

“The process of national revival of the Jewish people is irreversible and has its internal logic. We shall have no peace as long as the whole territory of the Country of Israel will not return under Jewish control. This might sound too hard, but such is the logic of history.

The war on the Holy Land has been already fought for four thousand years and the end cannot be seen. A stable peace will come only then, when Israel will return to itself all its historical lands, and will thus control both the Suez and the Ormudz channel. The state will find at last its geostrategic completeness. We must remember that Iraqi oil fields too are located on the Jewish land. This may seem utopia to many now - but an even greater utopia seemed a hundred years ago the revival of the Jewish state...

If you want it, this will not not be a fairy tale"

---Rabbi Avrom Shmulevic

You see, its really not about the Arabs trying to "push the Jews into the sea." On the contrary, its about the Zionists trying to push the Arabs into the desert. Consider what has already happened - the only state that has been "wiped from the map" is Palestine...

Al Jazeera to share its exclusive footage of Gaza conflict

Al Jazeera has announced that it will share broadcast quality footage of the Gaza conflict online via Creative Commons, a non-profit sharing system. Footage is in English and Arabic and will be available to download free, for both commercial and non-commercial use, as long as users acknowledge Al Jazeera as the source.

The Zionists state bombs Gazan cemetery

No Resting in Peace for Gaza Deadas Israel Bombs Cemetery

A big explosion tore through the increasingly packed Sheikh Redwan cemetery, shattering tombstones and ripping bones and recently buried flesh from the earth. "The planes have struck even the dead. There is nothing the planes have not hit in the Gaza Strip," lamented Abu Fayez al-Shurafa, leaning on a cane.

Apparently, killing the living is not enough to satisfy the Zionist Nazis' blood thirst. Now, they're bombing Gazan cemeteries in an attempt to murder even the dead...

Not all Jews agree with Israel's Gaza action

Israel has consistently failed to destroy the Palestinian spirit and refuses to end its colonial addiction to settlement expansion. The war against Gaza is simply another chapter in Israel's futile attempt at redrawing the Middle East map. Until the Jewish state acts like a responsible international citizen, it should be treated with appropriate sanction.

Why isn't this news? US Rabbis call for Gaza Cease-Fire

Today on page 17 of the NY Times, a group of prominent liberal rabbis and other religious and cultural leaders called for a cease-fire in Gaza. They were backed by over 2,800 American citizens. Because they could not get their opinion presented in the major media they had to buy this full page ad. Haaretz considered it news. So far no U.S. media have considered it news. Why not?

USS Liberty Survivor: Israel is Public Enemy #1

Things are very tense in the Middle East and as a survivor of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty 41 years ago I am convinced that the truth about what happened to us can change the world and change what people believe about “poor old Israel”, as the Liberty story is the straw that will break the back of the Zionist Government murderers. Americans will not stand with Israel when the Liberty truth is told, and it is our duty to get this done now!

Zionists-Nazi massacre leaves no place for Gazans to bury their dead

One family buried a slain son over his grandfather. Another bundled up the tiny bodies of three young cousins and lowered them into the grave of a long-dead aunt. A man was laid to rest with his brother. More than two weeks into the Israeli offensive that has killed more than 940 Palestinians, Gazans are struggling to find places to bury their dead. Cemeteries throughout Gaza City that were closed for new burials have now reopened.

'Three Israeli generals wounded in Gaza'

Three Israeli generals as well as scores of soldiers have been reportedly wounded on the 18th day of Tel Aviv's attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Israel still reports only 13 killed. But, anyone who knows anything about war knows that before you can shoot a general, you gotta shoot a helluva lot of privates...

Hamas puts Israeli casualties at 360

The al-Qassam Brigades announced Wednesday that its fighters have so far killed 40 Israeli officers and soldiers; injuring 320 others since Israel launched a military campaign in the densely-populated Gaza Strip on December 27, Al-Aqsa TV station reported.

Which means that Israel's true casualities are probably twice Hamas' count....

Zionists hypocracry know no bounds

An IDF soldier recites morning prayers next to his armored vehicle on the Gaza border.

Father forgive me for I have sinned….. I killed over 1,000 people including innocent women and children……

'More than 1,000 killed in Gaza'

Palestinian deaths in the Gaza Strip have passed 1,000, medical sources in Gaza say, as diplomatic efforts continue to reach a ceasefire.

Don't get tricked by the graph, which appears to suggest that EVERY man killed is a member of the resistance. MOST men who have been killed WERE NOT Hamas - they were in fact innocent civilians trying to get on with life. In fact, Israel murdered nearly 200 police officers who were graduating from the Palestinian police academy in the very early moments of their massacre. I guess the Zionist murders' position is, if its in Gaza - kill it...

Pentagon official says 9/11 suspect was tortured

Al-Qaeda suspect Mohammed al-Qahtani during his 2006 trial in Sanaa, Yemen. Qahtani -- a Saudi suspected of involvement in the September 11 terror attacks -- was tortured in Guantanamo Bay, the official overseeing trials at the detention site has told the Washington Post

A Pentagon official acknowledged in an interview published Wednesday that the United States tortured Mohammed al-Qahtani, a Saudi man who allegedly had hoped to become the "20th hijacker" in the Sept. 11 attacks.

"We tortured Qahtani," said Susan J. Crawford, a retired judge who was appointed convening authority of military commissions in February 2007. Crawford was interviewed by The Washington Post's Bob Woodward.

Like stomping kittens in a box

"Take some kittens, some tender little moggies in a box", said Jamal, a surgeon at the Al Shifa, Gaza's main hospital, while a nurse actually placed a couple of blood-stained cardboard boxes in front of us. "Seal up the box, then jump on it with all your weight and might, until you feel their little bones crunching, and you hear the last muffled little mew."

I stared at the boxes in astonishment, and the doctor continued: "Try to imagine what would happen after such images were circulated. The righteous outrage of public opinion, the complaints of the animal rights organisations…" The doctors went on in this vein, and I was unable to take my eyes off those boxes, sitting at our feet. "Israel trapped hundreds of civilians inside a school as if in a box, including many children, and then crushed them with all the might of its bombs. What were the world's reactions? Almost nothing. We would have been better off as animals rather than Palestinians, we would have been more protected."

Obama selects Zionist Dennis Ross as Mideast Czar

Obama has appointed Dennis Ross as his special envoy to Iran and overall Middle East "czar." Outside of the hard-line neocons such as Douglas Feith, Norman Podhoretz, Richard Perle, etc., it would be hard to come up with someone who would be less of an honest broker in the Middle East.

And, Obama continues to disappoint....

Barack Obama’s first mistake - His silence on Gaza

The German newspaper, Sueddeutsche Zeitung no less, scorned Obama for his stance, stating that "Gaza is burning, and Israel's bombs are causing daily casualties, but the world can only expect change at twelve noon sharp on January 20." And, all the way in the Philippines, Randy David writes thus: "By any measure, this is not a war but a slaughter, not a retaliatory response but an outrageous massacre. The Jewish nation's transformation from colossal victim to callous aggressor is complete... As Israelis and Palestinians stared menacingly at each other on Christmas Day, the rest of us stared indifferently, forgetting that, in the last analysis, we are all Gazans."

Ten Israeli soldiers choose jail over Gaza

On "conscience’s grounds," the soldiers refused orders to head to the Gaza Strip, they said.

No'em Levna, a first lieutenant in Israel's army, refused to serve in Gaza, saying, "We killed 900 Palestinians in 17 days, including hundreds of children."

"If violence must be used, it should be used minimally, and that isn't what’s happening," he added. "Killing innocent civilians cannot be justified. Nothing justifies this kind of killing. It’s devilish."

Olmert Brags About Embarrassing Rice in UN Gaza Vote

Israeli Prime Minister Demanded Bush Halt Lecture to Stop Gaza Truce Vote

Early Friday morning the secretary of state was considering bringing the cease-fire resolution to a UNSC vote and we didn’t want her to vote for it.” Olmert said. “I said ‘get President Bush on the phone.’ They tried and told me he was in the middle of a lecture in Philadelphia. I said ‘I’m not interested, I need to speak to him now.’ He got down from the podium, went out and took the phone call.

A beaming Olmert then described telling President Bush “the US cannot possibly vote in favor of this resolution,” and spoke with pride of how embarrassed US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was at having to abstain from voting for a resolution she helped to organize and gather support for.

Still have questions about who the American President really works for??? Hint - it ain't the American people...

Say "Thank You" to Jon Stewart

On The Daily Show's January 5 "Strip Maul" segment, Jon Stewart did what few American television personalities have dared to do: he criticized Israel's campaign against Gaza, making it clear that bombing will not bring peace for Israelis or Palestinians. He mocked the one-sided response of U.S. politicians by calling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict the "Mobius strip of issues because there's only one side!"

Jon Stewart is sure to be swamped with hate mail from the Zionists for his comments criticizing Israel's massacre in Gaza and reminding his audience that the Zionist controlled mainstream media and political pundits are parroting the talking points given them by the Israeli spin machine.

Please click here to extend your support to Jon - I'm sure he will need it in the coming days and weeks.

The Palestinians–Following in the Footsteps of the American Revolution

There is something soooooo familiar about all of this. Now, let’s see, we have on one side one of the most wealthy and militarily-powerful nations in the world throwing everything they have against a ragtag group of people fighting to rid their lands of foreign occupation. A military blockade has been imposed upon the native peoples, preventing them from engaging in business they need to sustain themselves. The occupying power, demonstrating its complete disregard for human life and the fact it does not distinguish between civilian and combatants is engaged in deliberately burning down entire towns in achieving its ends.

Naturally, the freedom fighters are called criminals and have no just basis for their grievances. The occupying power, understanding the paramount importance of decapitation, is actively engaged in hunting down the leaders of this movement.

Why, yes, that’s it–It’s the exact same scenario that took place a relatively short while ago between the British and the Americans in what came to be known as the American Revolution.

Gaza's tunnels, traps and martyrs: the Hamas strategy to defeat Israel

Morale was high, Mohammed insisted. Hamas had lost fewer fighters than expected and there was an infinite supply of eager replacements for those “martyred”. It still had plenty of rockets that could be launched remotely from hidden bunkers. “We can continue as long as it takes,” he said. “I tell you, even our ghosts will defeat the Israelis.”

Israel bans Arab parties from running in upcoming elections

Israel on Monday banned Arab political parties from running in next month's parliamentary elections, drawing accusations of racism by an Arab lawmaker who said he would challenge the decision in the country's Supreme Court.

Not that the Zionists are racists or anything like that...

IDF reservist refuses to fight in Gaza over civilian deaths

An Israel Defense Forces reserves soldier, taking part in Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip which entered its 17th day on Monday, has refused to enter the Hamas-ruled territory along with his unit in protest of the killing of Palestinian civilians.

The Zionists leaders will pay for their war crimes in Gaza

The public, moral and judicial test will be applied to the three Israeli statesmen who sent the Israel Defense Forces to war against a helpless population, one that did not even have a place to take refuge, in maybe the only war in history against a strip of land enclosed by a fence. Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak and Tzipi Livni will stand at the forefront of the guilty.

Joe the Plumber berates Israeli press for not being patriotic enough

Fledgling war correspondent Samuel Wurzelbacher visits Israel's frontline city of Sderot but says he can't think of the right question

The fledgling war correspondent for Pajamas Media website spent his first day on the job in the frontline Israeli city of Sderot, which has borne the brunt of Hamas rocket attacks. He said he had rarely seen such suffering.

"The people of Sderot can't do normal things day to day, like get soap in their eyes in the shower, for fear a rocket might come in," he said. "I'm sure they're taking quick showers. I know I would."

Amazing...., simply amazing....

Rethinking Zionism

We anti-Zionists can say with honor that anti-Zionists like Rabbi Elmer Berger identified the problems with Zionism 60 years ago, accurately when he said that Zionism meant contempt for the Arab population, dependence on a backroom lobby in the United States, and the introduction of dual loyalty into American Jewish life. All true.

America’s Shame

Why does Israel have a right to exist, but Palestine doesn’t? This is the question of our time. For sixty years Israelis have been stealing Palestine from Palestinians. There are maps available on the Internet and in Israeli publications showing the shrinkage over time of what was once Palestine into what Palestine is today--a small number of unconnected ghettos or bantustans.

How Israel's Propaganda Machine Works

As in past Mideast conflicts, both the media story line and political commentary here in the U.S. has closely followed Israel's talking points on the war. This has been an essential component in Israel's early success and in its ability to prolong fighting without U.S. pushback. Because it recognizes the importance of the propaganda war, Israel fights on this front as vigorously and disproportionately as it engages on the battlefield.

Here's how they have done it:

Gaza Is the Future

Israel is following the "Clean Break" plan almost to the letter, shedding its old role as a dependent settler-colony under continuous siege. In Gaza – and, be assured, throughout the Middle East – Israel is asserting its new role as regional hegemon in a multi-polar world. Israel, not the U.S., is taking the initiative and leading its great ally and "protector" around by the nose, with the Lobby serving as an effective rein on any sudden spasms of self-interest.

Look At The Dead: US weapons & Zionists butchers - a deadly combination


The hijacking of the Jewish faith

The creation of the Zionist entity has been based on what is described as the divine concept of the Promised Land. Interpreting the book of Genesis (17:7 - 9) of the Old Testament, Zionists say the land of Canaan forever belongs to the Jewish people.

"And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God."

"And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations."

These verses provide, in their opinion, the primary basis for the Promised Land concept. But this is not the view of all Jews. Many Orthodox Jews and groups such as the Neturei Karta object to the Zionist interpretation and state that the "covenant" was based solely upon the people's obedience to the Will of God.

Israel’s bombardment of Gaza is not self-defence – it’s a war crime

Israel’s actions amount to aggression, not self-defence, not least because its assault on Gaza was unnecessary. Israel could have agreed to renew the truce with Hamas. Instead it killed 225 Palestinians on the first day of its attack. As things stand, its invasion and bombardment of Gaza amounts to collective punishment of Gaza’s 1.5m inhabitants contrary to international humanitarian and human rights law. In addition, the blockade of humanitarian relief, the destruction of civilian infrastructure, and preventing access to basic necessities such as food and fuel, are prima facie war crimes.

Dead cat mourned at White House while victims of Gaza are ignored

On the phone from Gaza, Zahrah Salem shares the news she has just seen, that so many at the White House were “deeply saddened” by the death of the cat India Willie. Why, she asks, is nobody at the White House deeply saddened by the death of so many children in Gaza.

14 Percent of U.S. Adults Can't Read

Statistics released by the U.S. Education Department this week show that some 32 million U.S. adults lack basic prose literacy skill. That means they can't read a newspaper or the instruction on a bottle of pills. The figures are for 2003, the latest year available. State and county results are available here.

Imagine my complete LACK of surprise...

What You Don’t Know About Gaza

NEARLY everything you’ve been led to believe about Gaza is wrong. Below are a few essential points that seem to be missing from the conversation, much of which has taken place in the press, about Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip.


A $2.00 Whore by any other name...

Gaza boy recounts house of death

"There were maybe more than 25 people killed," said Ahmed Ibrahim Samouni, a 13-year-old Palestinian boy who was wounded in the leg and chest but survived the Israeli shelling of a house in north Gaza on Jan. 4.

Gaza Resolution One-Sided and Unwise

The following is Rep. Ron Paul's statement on H. Res. 34, "Recognizing Israel's right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza, reaffirming the United States' strong support for Israel, and supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process."

The time of the righteous

Anyone who justifies this war also justifies all its crimes. Anyone who sees it as a defensive war must bear the moral responsibility for its consequences. Anyone who now encourages the politicians and the army to continue will also have to bear the mark of Cain that will be branded on his forehead after the war. All those who support the war also support the horror.

The West Bank: We're all Hamas now - supporters of Fatah unite behind enemy

A Palestinian child carries a mock baby's body as people from the West Bank village of Billin demonstrate near the separation barrier

Even if Israel wins on the battlefield or in the diplomatic corridors it is already paying the price of its Gaza onslaught in intensified hatred in the hearts of its Palestinian neighbours in the West Bank. The campaign also appears to be increasing public scepticism about the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's chosen path of negotiations as the way to establish an independent state alongside Israel.

Israel targets Press TV station in Gaza

Israeli forces have targeted the Press TV television station in the Gaza Strip.

And, the Zionists attempts to silence the Press. It should be noted that Israel has prohibited "foreign jounalists" from entering Gaza. The journalist inside of Gaza are mostly Palestinians - therefore, Israel apparently considers them legitimate targets.

UN rights chief wants investigation of Gaza abuses

The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights called Friday for an independent war crimes investigation in Gaza after reports that Israeli forces shelled a house full of Palestinian civilians, killing 30 people.

Like I said, now it's the UN and the ICRC calling the Zionists War Criminals - not just a "bunch of Arabs who hate Jews."

American Empire Spending Its Way to Oblivion

The U.S. Congressional Budget Office today announced, to a stunned audience of financial observers, that the federal government would run a $1.2 trillion budget deficit in calendar 2009. Why is the number so staggering? Because $1.2 trillion is equal to nearly the entire GDP of the nation of Canada.

The biggest flood of red ink the world has ever known

How much is $1.186 trillion — or $1,186,000,000,000, written out the long way?

Why do I bring this up? Because that $1.186 trillion figure is the projected 2009 deficit, according to the latest report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

And it is downright scary.

Jobless rate jumps to 7.2 percent in Dec.

The U.S. unemployment rate bolted to 7.2 percent in December, the highest level in 16 years, as nervous employers slashed 524,000 jobs. The labor market is expected to remain weak as mass layoffs continue.

Ohhhh, well......

Hamas rejects UN ceasefire as death toll mounts

Hamas has rejected a UN ceasefire as Israel killed 30 Palestinians in guaranteed safe house. Fighting continued in the region with claims Israel allowed 110 Palestinians into a safe house but then shelled it, killing 30, AFP said.

Really, can you blame Hamas? How can you have a ceasefire with the Zionists -who would allow innocent people into a supposed "safe house" then intentionally shell it? That's premediated murder anyway you look at it. Again, I ask, what kind of people are these Zionists? And, what kind of people are those who support them??

For Hamas' part - they realize that Israel can only knock down buildings and murder innocent people. Hamas knows full well that in order for the Zionists to achieve any of their stated objectives they will have to move into the cities where their technical advantages will be minimized and the advantage will shift to Hamas. In Hamas' opinion, that is when the "war" will really start. As the Palestinians see it, they can either die on their feet, fighting for freedom from occupation and oppression - or, they can die on their knees of stravation and destitution due to the blockade. Just as the "true Jews" did in the Warsaw ghetto not so long ago, the Palestinians simply choose to die on their feet...

Israel ignores U.N. call for immediate cease-fire

Air force bombs at least 50 Gaza targets as 14-day assault rages on

Israel pushed ahead with its offensive in the Gaza Strip on Friday, ignoring a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire in the 14-day-old conflict. Israeli warplanes dropped bombs on the outskirts of the city of Gaza, residents said. Elsewhere, Palestinian medics said tanks shelled a house in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, killing six Palestinians from the same family.

Of course the Zionist state ignores the cease-fire. Zionists are above international law.

Okay, for the "un-initiated," Israel is basically getting her As* kicked in Gaza. Yea, I know the Zionists murderers have killed over 800 Palestinians now - but, most of those are innocent men, women and children. The Zionists want to continue the fight until they feel they have the upper hand. But, Hamas is still strong, still intact, still supported by the Palestinians, and still inflicting severe and constant damages on the Zionists ground troops.

Of course, Israel never reveals it's "casualities," (there is nothing causal about war), but the fact that the IDF (Isreali Death Force) cannot advance beyond the outskirts of the major cities and Hamas continues to fire rockets, mortars, and now real missiles deeper into Israel proper tells the true story. Recall at the start of this campaign of mass murder of innocent civilians, which the Zionists refer to as a "war," Israel were reporting her losses - Hamas were killing and wounding 30-40 IDF troops at a pop. Then the reporting abruptly stopped.

Now, the Zionist state is admitting to 13 dead but no mention of the number of wounded. In 2006, it was nearly a full year after the war with Hizbullah before we knew the full extent of the as* whipping Israel took - nearly 200 troops killed with many, many more severely wounded, 0ver 50 of the Zionists' "invincible" Merkava tanks were killed, 2 Destroyer ships were put out of commission, a number of drones and personnel carriers were lost. Various forms of Israeli small arms and shoulder fired weapons were also abandoned and confiscated by Hizbullah. All of this, in addition to the over 30,000 Hizbullah rockets and missiles which were fired into Israel during the 33 day war, which caused untold damage. And, most importantly - NONE of Israel's stated objectives were achieved. The same will be true in this case...

An Unnecessary War

Palestinian leaders from Gaza were noncommittal on all issues, claiming that rockets were the only way to respond to their imprisonment and to dramatize their humanitarian plight. The top Hamas leaders in Damascus, however, agreed to consider a cease-fire in Gaza only, provided Israel would not attack Gaza and would permit normal humanitarian supplies to be delivered to Palestinian citizens.

After extended discussions with those from Gaza, these Hamas leaders also agreed to accept any peace agreement that might be negotiated between the Israelis and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also heads the PLO, provided it was approved by a majority vote of Palestinians in a referendum or by an elected unity government.

According to Jimmy Carter, Hamas is seeking a democratic, what's the beef??

Desperately Seeking Obama

Palestinian children stand near the remains of an Israeli missile that landed in a building in Rafah refugee camp, southern Gaza Strip, Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009

"That Obama chooses to remain silent" on Israeli savaging of Gaza "is nothing short of cowardice." Even before he is sworn into office, Obama's stature is diminished; he has been "pushed into a corner" by the Israelis. What has been lost may not be regained. "The hope that a Black man will stand up to the racial calculations that turn the ‘native' into a ‘thing', as Frantz Fanon put it, is palpable among many Muslims." There is "no greater cause for social justice than that of the Palestinian people," but "Obama is missing in action in this first challenge to his Presidency."

Who is Black America’s Moral Emissary to the World?

Cynthia McKinney's attempted voyage of solidarity with the besieged people of Gaza on the medical relief boat Dignity, rammed and almost sunk by Israeli warships, reminds the world that not all African Americans have morphed into warmongering clones of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Thanks to the presence of the former Georgia congresswoman and Green Party presidential candidate on the mission, millions of Arabs have been made aware of a different Black America, one that is not silent, like Barack Obama, in the face of a purposely inflicted human rights catastrophe.

Cynthia McKinney is Black America's moral emissary to the world. She exemplifies the Black America that consistently opposes U.S. military adventures abroad, a people that recognize organized racism when they see it, and therefore condemn Israel's treatment of Palestinians - the Black America that Martin Luther King came from. Some of us are still in our right minds. Hopefully, most of the others will recover, sooner rather than later.

UNHRC to debate 'violations' in Gaza

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) was due to hold Friday a special session on the conflict in Gaza Strip to examine a motion by Egypt, Pakistan and Cuba seeking condemnation of the Israeli offensive and of "grave" violations. The three countries, backed by members of the Arab League, Organization of Islamic Conference, non-aligned and African states, gained the support of 32 of the 47 Council members for the special debate, twice as much as required.

The strategy is starting to clarify - this is the first step in holding the Zionist state responsible for it's war crimes and crimes against humanity. This time it will be the United Nations Human Rights Council and the International Committee for the Red Cross making the case at the Hague, not just a "bunch of Arabs who hate Israel."

US abstains as UN calls for Gaza cease-fire

In a surprise move, the United States abstained from a U.N. Security Council vote Thursday night urging an immediate cease-fire in Gaza, saying it wanted to see the results of Egyptian-mediated talks with Hamas and Israel before calling for a halt to military action.

The 14-0 U.N. vote came on the 13th day of an Israeli air and ground offensive against the Islamic group Hamas which rules Gaza and has been launching rockets and mortars into southern Israel for years. It followed three days of intense negotiations between ministers from key Arab nations and the council's veto-wielding Western powers — the U.S., Britain and France.

Although, the US was intimately involved in drafting the final resolution, the US still could not bring itself to vote against Israel and hold the Zionist state responsible for murdering nearly 800 Palestinians (nearly 300 children) and attacking UN and ICRC personnel, ambulances, and food conveys.

Notice that the US abstainion was unexpected and even took France and the UK by surprise. What strange power does the Zionist state have over the US?

Israel's U.S. Senate prostitutes passes "voice" resolution of support

The U.S. Senate voiced on Thursday their support for Israel's fight against Hamas in Gaza, and urged for resumption of ceasefire in the warn-torn area. The chamber passed a non-binding resolution by voice vote as a joint initial by Democratic and Republican lawmakers.

"When we pass this resolution, the United States Senate will strengthen our historic bond with the state of Israel, by reaffirming Israel's inalienable right to defend against attacks from Gaza, as well as our support for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.

AIPAC praises Israel's US Senate prostitutes for their support

AIPAC on Thursday praised a bipartisan US Senate resolution which expressed support for Israel in its fight against terrorism. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Capitol Hill, Wednesday. The resolution, which was sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, "conveys America's unequivocal and steadfast support for Israel's right to self-defense," according to a statement from the pro-Israel lobby group.

U.S. Weaponry Facilitates Killings In Gaza

The devastating Israeli firepower, unleashed largely on Palestinian civilians in Gaza during two weeks of fighting, is the product of advanced U.S. military technology. The U.S. weapons systems used by the Israelis -- including F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, tactical missiles and a wide array of munitions -- have been provided by Washington mostly as outright military grants.

Red Cross: Israel breaking int'l law, letting children starve in Gaza

"This is a shocking incident," said Pierre Wettach, ICRC chief for Israel and the Palestinian territories. " The Israeli military must have been aware of the situation but did not assist the wounded. Neither did they make it possible for us or the Palestinian Red Crescent to assist the wounded," Wettach said.

One has to ask, would Jesus support these people? If Jesus would not support the Zionists - why should you??

Holocaust Denied

In Gaza, the enforced starvation and denial of humanitarian aid, the piracy of life-giving resources such as fuel and water, the denial of medicines and treatment, the systematic destruction of infrastructure and the killing and maiming of the civilian population, 50 per cent of whom are children, meet the international standard of the Genocide Convention. "Is it an irresponsible overstatement," asked Richard Falk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and international law authority at Princeton University, "to associate the treatment of Palestinians with this criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity? I think not."

Why Do So Few Speak Up for Gaza?

The major news outlets meekly accepted Israel’s banning of journalists from entering Gaza as an excuse for downplaying collateral civilian casualties, our president-elect, Barack Obama, has had little to say about an invasion that will much complicate his future Mideast peace efforts, and most commentators easily rationalize Israel’s many-more-eyes-for-an-eye killings.

Lying holocaust author to turn novelist

Which only goes to prove - when it comes to the (so-called) holocaust, a lie is as good as the truth. In either case, no one is permitted to question it...

ICRC: Israel delayed access to wounded for days

A Palestinian boy, who also holds Russian citizenship, sits atop a Red cross vehicle as he waits with his family to leave the Gaza Strip January 8, 2009

The International Red Cross accused Israel Thursday of "unacceptable" delays in letting rescue workers reach three Gaza City homes hit by shelling where they eventually found 15 dead and 18 wounded, including young children too weak to stand.

First, it was the United Nations, now the International Red Cross has accused Israel of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity. I ask again, what kind of people are these Zionists? And, what kind of people would support these Zionists murderers??


A Palestinian woman stands in front of Israeli soldiers during a protest in the West Bank village of Bilin near Ramallah against Israel's offensive in Gaza January 8, 2009.

This is why Israel CANNOT win - no matter how many Palestinians they murder. For Palestinians the choice is simple - "BE FREE OR DIE!"

Palestinians find 35 bodies in Gaza battle zone

A Palestinian woman reacts over relatives moments after they were killed in an Israeli missile strike outside their home in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip,Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009

A Palestinian health official says the bodies of 35 people have been found in the rubble of a Gaza Strip battle zone. Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry says the bodies were discovered Thursday during a three-hour pause in fighting. Israel agreed to the lull to allow aid shipments into Gaza.

But, of course, Israel doesn't target civilians...

U.N. halts aid deliveries in Gaza, blames Israel

Palestinians gather around the remains of a Gaza City mosque Thursday after it was destroyed by an Israeli airstrike.

The United Nations halted all aid deliveries to the besieged Gaza Strip Thursday, citing a series of Israeli attacks on U.N. staff and installations.

Now, even the United Nations is blaming Israel of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity...

Army general: Israel seeking a way out

A senior Israeli army official has admitted that Tel Aviv may not be able to topple Hamas through a military campaign in the Gaza Strip.

Israel Created Hamas to Split Palestine

Israel’s False Flag Operations Know No Bounds

The Israeli Mossad (their CIA) created Hamas in 1987, with the frontmen Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, because, as Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, says: “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO).”

Well ain’t that something? So, the Mossad starts Hamas, with the original “intention” of being a charitable organization to the Palestinian people. And charity they did. Slowly, of course, it turned into a political and military organization, which was the true original intention. It challenged Fatah and the PLO as it does to this day. Divide and conquer: the oldest military tactic in the book…

Problem is, it didn't work out quite the way Israel had planned...

Israel and the west will pay a price for Gaza's bloodbath

...despite this gruesome demonstration of its overwhelming power, Israel once again faces the threat of political and military failure, just as it did in Lebanon in 2006. After its most pulverising assault ever on the blockaded territory, Hamas remains standing, its administration intact, its rockets reaching ever further into Israel proper. Far from turning the Gazan population against the Islamist movement, the signs are that Israel's onslaught is cementing its support.

What Kind of Security Will This Barbarism Bring Israel?

Israel has killed and wounded almost four thousand men, women and children so far in its assault on Gaza; it has entombed whole families together in the ruins of their homes.....

These are the scenes that every Palestinian and every Arab around the world sees every single day on the uncensored, unedited, unfiltered and relentlessly, brutally honest coverage broadcast on the Arabic Al-Jazeera channel. Unlike the US and UK networks, Al-Jazeera has correspondents and camera crews all over Gaza; they are Arabs, some of them are Palestinians, and they all live among the people whose suffering they record for the whole world to see; they can communicate with them in their own language and in the language of the audience as well. The coverage continues continuously 24 hours a day.

All this to make Israelis feel secure? What security is this kind of barbarism ever likely to gain them?

The Gaza War and International Law

The Israeli government has defended its attacks on ostensibly civilian targets in Gaza, such as UN schools and a TV station, because the sites allegedly were being used by Hamas fighters or were part of the Hamas infrastructure, even as the international community recoils at the carnage.

Babies cling to life in stricken hospital

Even with the glimmer of hope that a ceasefire may finally be under negotiation, the situation at Gaza's biggest hospital remains desperate, with more than 70 life-support patients now precariously dependent on generators because the main power supply has been down for five days.

Death toll in Gaza passes 700, including 220 children

THE death toll from Israel's 12-day-old offensive on Hamas in the Gaza Strip has passed 700, medics said.

Israel outraged as Vatican calls Gaza "big concentration camp"

Pope Benedict's point man for justice and peace issues on Wednesday issued the Vatican's toughest criticism of Israel since the latest Mideast crisis began, calling Gaza a "big concentration camp."

Finally..., a Christ-like voice from the "Representative of Christ"

The inconvenient truth about the Zionist state

Last week, the US used its Security Council veto to block the international community from ending the carnage in Gaza. This means our government is officially supporting Israel's genocidal attacks upon a civilian population. Let us be clear. The people of Gaza are essentially unarmed and for this reason it is not a war – but a slaughter. The Palestinians are almost defenseless against the advanced weaponry being used against them, much of it supplied by the US. There have even been reports that Israel is using depleted uranium and white phosphorus weapons. What we are witnessing is the beginning of the end of the world. If we do not act then we are also guilty.

Robert Fisk: Why do they hate the West so much, we will ask

A child injured in the Israeli bombardment of a UN school yesterday is taken to Shifa hospital in Gaza City

So once again, Israel has opened the gates of hell to the Palestinians. Forty civilian refugees dead in a United Nations school, three more in another. Not bad for a night's work in Gaza by the army that believes in "purity of arms". But why should we be surprised?

Why Aren’t More Americans Dancing To Israel’s Tune?

While the cheerleaders testified to the superior moral fiber of their team, the Palestinian civilian death toll mounted. Israeli missiles tore at least fifteen Palestinian police cadets to shreds at a graduation ceremony, blew twelve worshippers to pieces (including six children) while they left evening prayers at a mosque, flattened the elite American International School, killed five sisters while they slept in their beds, and liquidated 9 women and children in order to kill a single Hamas leader. So far, Israeli forces have killed at least 500 Gazans and wounded some two thousand, including hundreds of children. Yesterday, the IDF blanketed parts of Gaza with white phosphorus, a chemical weapon Saddam Hussein once deployed against Kurdish rebels.

UN: No Hamas Fighters in Bombed Gaza School

Palestinians at a school building in a refugee camp in Gaza

United Nations investigators say they have uncovered no evidence to support a claim by the Israeli military that Hamas fighters were holed up in a Gaza school, prompting a deadly attack by Israeli forces that killed 40 civilians, many of them children.

Another Zionist LIE revealed... But, sadly, still no international outcry. Can you imagine the world's reaction if Muslims had murdered over 700 Jews - 0ver 200 of whom were children???

America's special rules for the Zionist state

America's support of the Gaza attack proves once again that our mythical image of Israel has blinded us to its faults -- a myopia with devastating consequences for both countries.

Robert Fisk: Bring in the peacekeepers? It's not as easy as it sounds

UN peacekeepers in Lebanon, where they have had mixed success

Do I hear the braying of the UN donkey in Gaza? On his Middle East tour, the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, may well be mentioning that well-known Eeyore figure on the East River, always so willing to send its peacekeepers on Mission Impossible. The Palestinians have been trying to internationalise their conflict with the Israelis ever since Yasser Arafat pleaded for UN forces to protect the Palestinians after the failure of the Oslo agreement.

US troops 'monitoring Rafah crossing'

NBC anchorwoman and chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said Sunday that US military officers from the Corps of Engineers had been stationed on the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing in order to prevent "arms smuggling from illegal tunnels" by Palestinian fighters. “ And there are US Army Corps of Engineer personnel on the ground right now on the Egypt side looking at the tunnels to see how Egypt could be reassured that there won't be continued smuggling through on that," she said on Meet the Press.

New Israeli strike kills 40 in UN school

At least 40 people have been killed in a new Israeli attack on a school run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip.

The Zionists have absolutely NO shame - the sickening spin on this one is that Hamas was firing from the UN schools and Israel was compelled to respond. What kind of people are these? And, worst - what kind of people are those who support these mass murderers?? By the way - the children you see in the picture are probably all dead now...

Hamas rocket brings insomnia to Tel Aviv

The increasing range of Hamas rocket attacks has been the cause of fear among Israelis.

The landing of the rocket deep in Israel comes as officials in Tel Aviv fear that the increasing range of the retaliatory attacks may be an indication that Hamas has become capable of even devastating the Dimona nuclear complex.

Americans Have Learned the Wrong Lesson from the (so-called) Holocaust

Why do so many Americans - especially politicians and media talking heads - believe that criticizing Israel is wrong, no matter what it does (see this and this)? I think the main reason is that the wrong lessons have been drawn from the Holocaust . . or at least the wrong lessons are pushed on the American people.

Time To Tell The Truth About Israel


State-of-the art Israeli jets, paid for by the United States, bomb civilian targets in this tragic, poverty-stricken wasteland which acts as a holding camp for the human beings the Israeli government would rather be dead. Waiting in the wings are Israeli tanks preparing for a possible ground invasion of Gaza, again paid for by the United States.

In the US, Gaza is a different war

Like many major news organisations in the US, The Washington Post has chosen to cover the conflict from a perspective that reflects the US government's relationship with Israel. This means prioritising Israel's version of events while underplaying the views of Palestinian groups.

We’re All War Criminals Now

Silence is Complicity

The situation in Palestine, along with many of the violent conflicts in the world, is nothing more than a symptom of the disease that is U.S. Empire. Gaza is just one more bloody scene in an ongoing imperial nightmare of death and destruction. If we want to stop the senseless killing taking place in Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan and so many the other places, we must stand up and say no. Not just to the acts themselves, but to the fetid imperialist jugernaut which exports and cultivates them. Until we disrupt this cycle of corporate power mongering and violent militarism by refusing to participate in it, we have only ourselves to blame for the deaths of the innocent men, women and children who are the targets of our bombs. The blood is on your hands and mine. We are all war criminals now.

Obama fiddles while Gaza burns

Gaza is a uniquely oppressed conflict zone. With its borders and ports closed, and the IDF on the march, civilians do not have the option to flee to refugee camps, and Gaza is on the brink of humanitarian collapse. It is not time to stress our "special relationship" with a state that violates basic human rights. An all-out war in Gaza, where civilians have nowhere to flee, fits the definition of terrorism.

This brutality will never break our will to be free

Khalid Mish'al, Secretarty General, Hamas

For 18 months my people in Gaza have been under siege, incarcerated inside the world's biggest prison, sealed off from land, air and sea, caged and starved, denied even medication for our sick. After the slow death policy came the bombardment. In this most densely populated of places, nothing has been spared Israel's warplanes, from government buildings to homes, mosques, hospitals, schools and markets. More than 540 have been killed and thousands permanently maimed. A third are women and children. Whole families have been massacred, some while they slept.

Israel's Looming Catastrophe

For the past three decades, Israel has charted a course that invites its own destruction by relying on two risky propositions: first, that it could extend its security perimeter beyond the reach of a devastating missile attack, and second, that it could permanently control the political debate inside its crucial ally, the United States.

Egypt bars doctors from entering Gaza Strip

Frustration is mounting at Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip, where many local and foreign doctors are stuck after Egyptian authorities denied them entry into the coastal area now under an Israeli ground invasion.

Some things just can't be explained..., this is one of them.

Egypt's Mubarak to EU: Hamas must not be allowed to win in Gaza

Hamas must not be allowed to win its conflict with the IDF, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Monday told a delegation of European foreign ministers in a closed conversation.

Can there still be any doubt about who's side Mubarak is on?

'As I ran I saw three of my children. All dead'

The Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, promised an "iron fist" for Hamas and said he would treat the civilian citizens of Gaza with "silk gloves," though the Palestinians of Gaza know perhaps better than most that there are few silk gloves in war.

Hamas official: We must lay foundation for a tomorrow without Zionists

A-Zahar called on Israel to halt its aggression, withdraw its forces from Gaza and to open border crossings.

"The Palestinians are now the Jews...

May God grant you the conscience to care about the good and the evil;
May God grant you the wisdom to distinguish the good from the evil;
May God grant you the courage to defend the good and expose the evil;
May YOU open your eyes and your ears- AND your heart so God may be able to grant you these priceless gifts.

Israel rains fire on Gaza with phosphorus shells

The Geneva Treaty of 1980 stipulates that white phosphorus should not be used as a weapon of war in civilian areas, but there is no blanket ban under international law on its use as a smokescreen or for illumination. However, Charles Heyman, a military expert and former major in the British Army, said: “If white phosphorus was deliberately fired at a crowd of people someone would end up in The Hague. White phosphorus is also a terror weapon. The descending blobs of phosphorus will burn when in contact with skin.”

Another Israeli War Crime: Depleted uranium found in Gaza victims

Norwegian medics told Press TV correspondent Akram al-Sattari that some of the victims who have been wounded since Israel began its attacks on the Gaza Strip on December 27 have traces of depleted uranium in their bodies.

NY City Mayor Bloomberg goes to Israel as show of support for Gaza massacre

Bloomberg, who is Jewish, is scheduled to spend Sunday meeting with the mayors of Sderot and Ashkelon and with New Yorkers who have moved to Israel.

Hatred, brutality and murder consume the rotten soul of Israel’s military

Though this column ran more than four years ago, it speaks directly to the Nazi-like bombardment being visited on the defenceless civilian population of Palestine.

Boycott Israeli Products code number 729 is made in Israel

If you believe Israel is committing crimes against Palestinians, an occupier of Palestinian land, defying international laws, and defying United Nation resolutions, I seek your support and urge to pass the following piece of information to your family, friends,colleagues and relatives, and urge them to boycott Israeli products.

U.S. Vetoes of UN Resolutions Critical of Israel

Israel - a country above international law...

Why bombing Ashkelon is the most tragic irony

How easy it is to snap off the history of the Palestinians, to delete the narrative of their tragedy, to avoid a grotesque irony about Gaza which – in any other conflict – journalists would be writing about in their first reports: that the original, legal owners of the Israeli land on which Hamas rockets are detonating live in Gaza.

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.
