Voici toutes les dernières informations et sources qui sont abordées dans ces deux derniers textes publiés sur Les 7 du Québec et dans l'émission de L'Autre Monde du 8 janvier 2009 (demain).

Gaza: lorsque la vie et la vérité sont sacrifiés

Gaza et Israël: le droit légitime à la défense et quelques faits importants

The Death Of A Nation

What Israel does not want you to see

This video clip was taken with a mobile camera immediately after a terrorist Israeli air strike hit a busy market where kids with their mothers and fathers were searching for food to eat from one of the local markets early on Saturday 03, Jan 2009, Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Just because it is stamped "Made in the USA" doesn't mean it's not a terrorist bomb.

If you dropped a bomb from a plane into a heavily populated area what do you think the result would be?

It's not much different when the military does it.

The myth of precision bombing.



Why It Rains: Hamas holding ?Israeli? gas reserves hostage

An unexpected energy windfall on Israel's doorstep promises to resolve Israel's energy security concerns for years to come. Unfortunately for Israek, it is the Palestinian Authority that controls the licensing of these reserves. So, as Operation Summer Rains washes away the administrative and political structures in the occupied territories, has Israel decided to use Hamas as an excuse to dismantle the PA and seize its energy assets?

'Cut oil exports to Israel supporters'

Muslim countries should cut oil exports to those who support Israel and its crimes against the Gazans, a senior Iranian commander says.

Israel bars International Red Cross from entering Gaza

For a second day running, Israeli authorities have barred a Red Cross medical team from entering Gaza to help treat residents injured in bombings.

Les deux vidéo qui suivent absolument cruciales à voir. Les juifs comprennent que ce qu’Israël, entre les mains des sionistes, fait aux Palestiniens ne peut que créer plus de haine et d’antisémitisme dans le monde contre eux, alors qu’ils sont tout aussi scandalisé et absolument contre ce massacre. Ils expliquent aussi que leur religion les interdisent d’avoir un pays et que donc Israël est un pays illégitime à leurs yeux.

Israel or Hamas who broke the truce

Speech delivered by anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews at Gaza protests in New York and London

Thousands rally in Tel Aviv

The Chairman of the Balad Party, MK Jamal Zahalka, said at the rally that there is a need to "try Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi in an international war crimes tribunal for their role in the killing of civilians in the Gaza Strip."

Australian Jews protest against Israel's action

MORE than 100 Australian Jews, including two award-winning novelists and a former federal cabinet minister, have signed a statement condemning Israel's siege of Gaza, heightening tensions within the local Jewish community over the violence.

The Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, meanwhile called yesterday for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza but refused to criticise the Israeli offensive.

Tel Aviv rally decries Gaza assault

Amid cries of "Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies!" and banners reading, "Enough!" thousands of Israelis took to the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday night to protest against the country's war on Gaza...

"It is a cynical war, for political reasons and people are very much aware of that."

France condemns Israel land offensive in Gaza

France condemned Israel's move to send ground forces into the Gaza Strip on Saturday as well as continued Hamas rocket attacks and urged both Israel and the Palestinian group to accept cease-fire proposals.

Webmaster's Commentary:

They HAD a cease fire, remember?

Bush officially gave Israel the go-to-it signal

US gives green signal to Israel to launch ground invasion of Gaza
Washington, Jan.3 : U.S. President George W. Bush's administration is reported to have given Israel the green signal to decided when it wants to send ground troops into the Gaza Strip to neutralise the Hamas once and for all.


Bush Blames War On Hamas 'Terror'

President Bush has blamed Hamas for the bloodshed in the Middle East, which has so far left more than 400 people dead.
He used his weekly address to urge Arab countries to do more to stop militants firing rockets into Israel - which he described as an "act of terror".

Israeli forces have continued their air strikes on the Gaza Strip today, killing a senior Hamas commander, and militants have fired more than five rockets into Israel.

Israeli forces split Gaza in two

Earlier, US Vice-President Dick Cheney defended the Israeli ground offensive, saying air attacks were not enough to destroy rocket sites. He also said Israel had not sought US approval launching it.

Webmaster's Commentary:

If they are using US weapons and spending US money, then Israel already has US approval. Dick is a dick!

Hamas Provoked Attacks, Bush Says

President Bush issued a sharp condemnation of Hamas on Friday, accusing the Palestinian Islamist movement that controls the Gaza Strip of provoking Israeli military action with rocket attacks and then increasing the death toll by hiding among civilian populations.

NYC mayor heads to Israel to 'show his support'

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is heading to Israel along with police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and New York Rep. Gary Ackerman.

Spokesman Andrew Brent said the mayor "is going in order to show his support for Israel."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Excuse me, but that is NOT what the taxpayers of New York are paying these guys salaries to do! Bloomberg's job is to trake cvare of New York, not Israel!

I find it stunningly ironic that the mayor of the city that hosts the United Nations is supporting a country that has ignited a regional war by ignoring United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 (and a whole host of others).

new york city mayor mickey bloomberg jets off to israel to show his support

new york city mayor mickey bloomberg accompanied by congressman gary ackerman and nyc police commissioner, ray kelly, jets off to israel to express their solidarity with and to back the israelis invasion of gaza.

last night during the geraldo rivera program, faux news reported that their could be an attack (read false flag operation) on or somewhere in the united states as a result of israel's actions against gaza -- yet mayor bloomberg leaves his city to jet off to israel; taking with him -- of all people: the police commissioner -- thus showing once again that zionist jews are more loyal to israel than they are to their host country.

Kristol says Gaza invasion 'a favor for Obama'

Bill Kristol thinks that President-elect Barack Obama should be thankful for Israel's attack on Gaza.

"If you care about the peace process you should want Israel to embarrass and humiliate Hamas. That's the only chance -- there would be no peace process if Hamas were governing Gaza. That would be the worst thing for Obama. This is a favor for Obama if it de legitimizes and weakens Hamas," Kristol said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

If Bill Kristol spins any harder his teeth are going to start flying out of his head!

Diplomats say US blocks UN statement on Gaza

The United States has blocked approval of a U.N. Security Council statement calling for an immediate cease-fire between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers, diplomats said.

French U.N. Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert, the council president, said the 15 council members could not agree on a statement in closed discussions held after Israel launched a ground invasion into the Gaza Strip on Saturday. But he said there were "strong convergences" among the members to express concern about the deteriorating situation in Gaza and the need for "an immediate, permanent and fully respected cease-fire."

Libyan Ambassador Giadalla Ettalhi said the United States during the discussions late Saturday objected to "any outcome" on the proposed statement.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"...the United States during the discussions late Saturday objected to "any outcome" on the proposed statement."

The US Government is Israel's war-whore.

U.S. Vetoes of UN Resolutions Critical of Israel

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is why Israel runs rampant over the lives and homes of its neighbors, and why the rest of the world rightly sees the United States as a large part of the problem.

U.S. blocks U.N. statement on Gaza

The United States late Saturday blocked approval of a U.N. Security Council statement calling for an immediate cease-fire in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel and expressing concern at the escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas.

U.S. deputy ambassador Alejandro Wolff said the United States saw no prospect of Hamas abiding by last week's council call for an immediate end to the violence. Therefore, he said, a new statement at this time "would not be adhered to and would have no underpinning for success, would not do credit to the council."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Totally ignoring the fact that it is Israel that has a history of ignoring UN mandates, and breaking the cease fires.

Six Hamas activists killed during Israeli raids in Gaza Strip

Webmaster's Commentary:

This was the attack, back on November 5th, which ended the cease fire.

and yes, I am going to keep relinking this story as long as the idiot-whores in the White House continue to spout their nonsense about how this is all the fault of the Palestinians.

FLASHBACK - PALESTINE: Hamas wins election

In a stunning victory, the Islamic Palestinian resistance group Hamas claimed 76 of the 132 seats in the second Palestinian Authority (PA) election on January 25. This was the first election for the Palestinian Legislative Assembly held in almost 10 years. Hamas decisively defeated the ruling Fatah party, which retained 43 seats.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I relinked this story because today the US Government is claiming that Hamas rose to power via a 'coup.' They did not. They won the election. and it is an indicator of how unreal the official story has become that attempts to spin an election victory into a coup should come from an administration whose own legitimacy is very much in doubt from the evidence of massive vote fraud in 2000 and 2004.

UN: Stop Israeli 'monstrosity' in Gaza

UN General Assembly chief Miguel d'Escoto has criticized the Security Council for its inability to curb Israel's "monstrosity" in Gaza.

D'escoto criticized the UN Security Council for not showing enough tenacity in ending Gazans suffering in the wake of the weeklong Israeli offensive in the coastal strip.

"I think it's a monstrosity; there's no other way to name it," D'escoto said Saturday when asked about the Israeli incursion on Gaza.

The UN Security Council again failed to call for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip due to US intervention. The statement would have called on Israel to end its ground incursion into the region.

"Once again, the world is watching in dismay the dysfunctionality of the Security Council," D'escoto argued.

The two previous UN draft resolutions seeking an end to the violence in the region have been blocked by Washington. The United States has so far vetoed over 40 anti-Israel resolutions at the UN.


The truth is that far from being the poor victim it likes to portray itself as, Israel is in fact the most aggressive and belligerent nation in the region, having invaded pretty much everyone it shares a border with.

The following maps show what Israel has actually done.

Gaza (Life under bombardment)

Robert Fisk: 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.

That is why Gaza exists: because the Palestinians who lived in Ashkelon and the fields around it – Askalaan in Arabic – were dispossessed from their lands in 1948 when Israel was created and ended up on the beaches of Gaza. They – or their children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren – are among the one and a half million Palestinian refugees crammed into the cesspool of Gaza, 80 per cent of whose families once lived in what is now Israel. This, historically, is the real story: most of the people of Gaza don't come from Gaza.


Question: Israel says it is only defending itself against recurrent attacks by Hamas and other Palestinian “terrorist” organizations?

Answer: All aggressors say they are only defending themselves. Nazi Germany said it was defending itself. Israel is the last country in the world that is fit to complain about terrorism. After all, Israel represents, encapsulates and embodies terror in its ugliest and most nefarious forms.

Gaza telecommunication systems offline

Palestinian communications networks are barely functioning in the Gaza Strip due to cables damaged by several Israeli airstrikes on network infrastructure on Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel hides what it does from the world.

Don't pity the Palestinians

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israeli propaganda hits a new low.

Israel using Facebook robot to counter int'l protest

They create robots to justify mass murder! Qassamcount is a Facebook and Twitter robot that will update your status with the latest numbers on Hamas rocket firings. Megaphone is a desktop application Zionists can install to be notified of opportunities to comment on news articles and vote in opinion polls on major international news websites.

They weren't kidding about that propaganda war!

Palestinian resistance "Merkava" tanks pounded the largest land base of the occupation

Resistance factions announced they had destroyed seven tanks Zionism a "Merkava" fortified, using improvised explosive devices and anti-missile missiles.

The Palestinian resistance factions devices to the insurgents inflicted casualties among Israeli soldiers, and stressed its resistance to the destruction of Israeli tanks in Gaza entirely.

He said "Abu Ahmed said" the spokesperson of the "Jerusalem Brigades" armed wing of Islamic Jihad: "resistance factions managed only in the Zeitoun neighborhood destroyed seven tanks Zionism, and there are dozens of deaths and injuries among occupation, the occupying forces have occurred in several ambushes."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Some news is starting to get out of Gaza despite the Israeli bombing of communications infrastructure.

I do not know if this report is true but if it is it explains why ABCNNBBCBS abandoned the non-stop coverage of Gaza and went back to celebrity news earlier today.

White Phosphorous: Israel fires artillery shells into Gaza

The AP photo above shows what appears to be a white phosphorous shell fired into Gaza, as was used by Israel in Lebanon. White phosphorous is indiscriminate killer that ignites once it is exposed to oxygen, producing such heat that it bursts into a yellow flame and produces a dense white smoke.

It causes painful burn injuries to exposed human flesh, as discovered by Lebanon's Children at the hands of Israeli Phosphorous Bombs in 2006.

Webmaster's Commentary:

White Phosphorus is considered a chemical weapon by most governments around the world. Its use in civilian areas is banned by the Geneva Treaty of 1980. The United Nations considers such weapons illegal.

Fallujah by the Sea: Aping America, Israel Unleashes Chemical Weapons in Gaza

The Israeli military is reportedly using napalm-like white phosphorus shells in its all-out attack on Gaza, according to the conservative Times of London. The phosphorus in the smoke-emitting shells causes agonizing, unquenchable burns, sometimes searing flesh right down to the bone.

These savage tools of terror are "legal" when used as smokescreens to mask military operations, although their use as an offensive weapon is war crime. This is a rather ludicrous distinction when the shells are fired into heavily populated civilian areas, exploding and spraying phosphorus in all directions. Anyone who orders their use on cities and refugee camps knows with iron certainty that civilians will be burned, maimed and killed by this chemical weapon. That is to say, they know they will be murdering and mutilating innocent people in the most gruesome manner -- and they give the order anyway.

War Crimes: White Phosphorus bombs into Gaza

Webmaster's Commentary:

The use of incendiary bombs, whether White Phosphorus or thermite, puts the lie to Israel claims that they are only targeting Hamas. Incendiary bombs are indiscriminate attacks against whole neighborhoods.


Webmaster's Commentary:

The spin is that these are just smoke bombs, but you will note that there is relatively little smoke while the obvious end of the smoke trails is a flaming mass. Smoke bombs have lots of smoke but little flame.

Truth is the first casualty of war.

What you are seeing here is actually an incendiary bomb. Detonated a thousand feet in the air, the flaming fragments, usually either thermite or white phosphorus, spread over a wide area igniting fires. This is not a weapon aimed at an individual Hamas target but an indiscriminate weapon intended to destroy entire neighborhoods with fire!

Israel rains fire on Gaza with phosphorus shells

Israel is believed to be using controversial white phosphorus shells to screen its assault on the heavily populated Gaza Strip yesterday. The weapon, used by British and US forces in Iraq, can cause horrific burns but is not illegal if used as a smokescreen.

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.”

White phosphorus: the smoke-screen chemical that can burn to the bone

— White phosphorus bursts into a deep-yellow flame when it is exposed to oxygen, producing a thick white smoke

— It is used as a smokescreen or for incendiary devices, but can also be deployed as an anti-personnel flame compound capable of causing potentially fatal burns

— Phosphorus burns are almost always second or third-degree because the particles do not stop burning on contact with skin until they have entirely disappeared — it is not unknown for them to reach the bone

Geneva conventions ban the use of phosphorus as an offensive weapon against civilians, but its use as a smokescreen is not prohibited by international law

Israel previously used white phosphorus during its war with Lebanon in 2006

— It has been used frequently by British and US forces in recent wars, notably during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Its use was criticised widely

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Hey, honest; we were making a smokescreen right above that schoolyard!"

Depleted uranium found in Gaza victims

Medics tell Press TV they have found traces of depleted uranium in some Gazan residents wounded in Israel's ground offensive into the strip.

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.

The report comes after Israeli tanks and troops swept across the border into Gaza on Saturday night, opening a ground operation after eight days of intensive attacks by Israeli air and naval forces on the impoverished region.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned on Sunday that the wide-ranging ground offensive in the Gaza Strip would be "full of surprises."

Secret nuclear and biological weapons programs in Israel

Details of chemical weapons/nerve gas etc,that Israel STILL USE TODAY(sold to Saddam to use on the Kurds,Fallujah 2005,Lebanon 2006 and NOW IN GAZA)

Israel is the GLOBAL TERRORIST.It makes Osama Bin Laden look like just an angel with an OFF DAY!


FLASHBACK - Israeli crimes against humanity: Gruesome images of charred and mutilated bodies following Israeli air strikes

FLASHBACK - Israel Drops White Phosphorus Bombs, Littlest Victims Suffer

Jawad Najem, a surgeon at the hospital, said patients admitted Sunday had burns from phosphorous incendiary weapons used by Israel. The Geneva Conventions ban using white phosphorus as an incendiary weapon against civilian populations and in air attacks against military forces in civilian areas.

Flashback - Israel's Chemical Weapons

"On June 10th, 2004, the two clinics in Al-Zawiya treated 130 patients for gas inhalation. The patients were children, women, old people and young men. Dr. Abu Madi related that there was a high number of cases of [tetany], spasm in legs and hands, connected to the nervous system. Pupils were dilated. … Other symptoms included shock, semi-consciousness, hyperventilation, irritation and sweating."

Thus reads a report by medical units serving the West Bank village of Al-Zawiya, where nonviolent resistance to Israel's impending wall has been extraordinarily resolute. According to the medical report (procured by the International Middle East Media Center [IMEMC]), "the gas used against the protestors is not tear gas but possibly a nerve gas."

FLASHBACK - Israel to lobby ABC over nerve gas documentary

The Israeli government will lobby Australia's national broadcaster to ditch plans to screen a controversial BBC documentary on the Jewish state.

The program, Israel's Secret Weapon, asserts that Israel has used nerve gas against Palestinians and possesses an arsenal of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.

Six children among 12 killed in mosque blast

The shells could not have fallen at a worse time. Yesterday's afternoon prayers in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya were unusually busy because worshippers had abandoned their evening prayers in the belief that if the Israelis planned to strike, they would do so at night.

But as the townspeople left the mosque at dusk, the explosions began, killing at least 12 people, six of whom were children.

Bodies of Hamas leader's children paraded as group promises 'painful' revenge for their deaths

The bodies of a senior Hamas leader's small children were today ghoulishly paraded through the streets of Gaza as the group pledged to avenge their deaths.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Talk about desperate attempts at spin! "ghoulishly paraded?"

Ghoulish was killing the kids in the first place.

ACTION ALERT: Spy for Israel

It is clear that these Israeli terrorist pamphlets are marketing the blind insane destruction services of Israel to anyone who is WILLING to advise them of a target. In other words, to Spy for Israel!

These are the desperate and bankrupt measures (referring to 'Targets Bank' the IOF is supposed to attack) that this terrorist gang has reached. Note that they themselves understand that they engage in massacres, and that their actions are premeditated. They also offer no guarantees of safeguarding the informants.

As you notice in the pamphlet, they ask Gazans to call 02-583-9749, therefore for those outside of Palestine that's +972-2-583-9749. Also they left an email to contact them: helpgaza2008@gmail.com

So, what can be done? Simply, I encourage everyone to call above mentioned number (from your land line, mobile phone, Skype, etc.) and say in Hebrew "Atem Poshim, tafsiku laharog palestinayim, Palestien Meshuchreret, Aza meshuchreret."

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. Israeli product carry the unique code starting with # 729

List of Companies that support Israel - Boycott them

The boycott of Israeli products and companies supporting the zionist entity is about ordinary people around the world using their right to choose what they buy in order to help bring about an end to oppression in Palestine. Its a peaceful means of putting international pressure on the racist state of Israel and follows in the footsteps of the successful boycott against South African racist apartheid.

Free Gaza Update and Call to Action

We have located an alternate ship, which we're currently working on procuring. It's probably not the perfect boat for the Free Gaza Movement, but it's the most suitable and affordable one that we could locate in the short amount of time that we're trying to work in. Our new ship will carry about 30 passengers and 10-15 tons of cargo. We intend to leave for Gaza as soon as is possible, sometime within the next two weeks.

We know that there are large and amazingly powerful demonstrations and actions taking place around the world. In addition to all the work we know that everyone is already engaged in, we'd like you to please consider the following to help support our mission:
We're seeking to take extraordinary action and we need the mobilization of all in order to help us create the proper environment to make this work. We need your help to make it difficult for Israel to stop us even before our boat hits the water. Please help by:

Demonstrations continue worldwide over Gaza violence

Hamas accuses senior Palestinian aides of spying for Israelis

Hamas has accused senior aides of the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, of spying for Israel, underscoring an intensification of Palestinian infighting even in the face of Israel's bombardments in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas moves on Fatah 'collaborators'

The Hamas government has placed dozens of Fatah members under house arrest out of fear that they might exploit the current IDF operation to regain control of the Gaza Strip.

Deaths as Israel hits Gaza mosque

Israel and the ignored UN Resolutions

Makes you wonder how many more they will be permitted to ignore before the International Community stands up to them. If this is NOT bullying by Israel then how so many Resolutions laid at their door, IF you say "They are formed from Enemies opinion", then so was the ones laid at Iraqs door! Right? or can Israel really have it BOTH ways!

List of United Nations resolutions concerning Israel

Webmaster's Commentary:

Almost all of which have been violated by Israel (remember what happened to Iraq when it was wrongly suspected of violating just one?). Other attempts by the United Nations to pass resolutions regarding Israel are all vetoed by an obedient United States.

Israel just bombed a large civilian street market in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties! There are no civilian casualties!" -- Tzipi Livni

Israel must prepare to turn its military might from Gaza to Iran

IDF begins shelling northern Gaza for 1st time since op began

For the first time since the start of Operation Cast Lead, the IDF began firing artillery shells into northern Gaza on Saturday afternoon.

SUDAN, yes SUDAN, outdoes the US in Gaza aid!!

Sudan offers $123 million.

We offer a spit on Gazan graves and $85 million.

HAMAS rocket hits Israel!

Webmaster's Commentary:

Not even a divot!

Even with the wide angle lens and placing the remains of the rocket in the foreground to exaggerate its size, it just does not look all that threatening. In fact this looks like the driveway where we did our New Year's fireworks.

An Israeli police officer stands guard next to the remains of a rocket that landed just outside the southern town of Sderot January 1, 2009.

In pictures: Israel steps up offensive

Webmaster's Commentary:

Check out picture 4 of the unexploded Israeli bomb inside a house in Gaza, and compare it to the tiny Qassam rockets the media is trying to make such a big deal out of.

Funding the Israeli Military

Millions of Americans face home foreclosures, health care, job and pension losses. However, none of these crises currently threatens to alter the flow of their tax dollars to Israel’s government. It takes these greenbacks and buys F-16 jets made by Lockheed Martin to drop bombs on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.This aggression is an effect of the U.S. military-industrial complex.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The US Government call for a cease fire is total bovine excrement, because if the US Government were serious about peace, they would stop sending all those weapons to Israel.

Kashmir protests over assault on Gaza, 50 injured


Day 8 of Israeli War On Gaza

Death toll 450, injured 2350, disastrous humanitarian situation


Residents of Gaza were warned earlier today “to get out of harms way”…. Where are they supposed to go?????
All entries to Israel are locked…. the border to Egypt is nothing but a huge wall…. the people of Gaza are virtually imprisoned in the Strip…

I just got off the phone with a dear brother in Gaza, Sameh Habeeb… he is at home with his family awaiting the ‘promised attack’….. I’ll keep you posted as soon as he sends me his latest report.

European protesters urge end to attacks on Gaza

Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in European cities on Saturday against Israel's bombardment of Gaza, including protesters who hurled shoes at the tall iron gates outside the British prime minister's residence in London and waved Palestinian flags.

Meanwhile, Americans roll over on the sofa and go back to sleep hoping Palestine will be gone soon.
Americans should be so "proud" of what their support of the Israeli AshkenNAZI leaders is bringing about.

Israel is Not a Victim

Historically, Israel has never been a victim in the Middle East. As a matter of fact, most Israeli historians would dispute the victimhood of Israel vigorously. You can read the works of the new Israeli historians (such as Illan Pappe), who have been given access to Israel’s archives and have concluded that Israel (even before it became Israel in 1948) was using what we would now call acts of terrorism against Palestinians to create an exclusively Jewish state. It is agreed upon by the new Israeli historians that the Stern Gang and the Irgun initiated the violence before, during, and after the 1948 war for Israel’s independence. The Palestinians call it their “Nakba” (Arabic for catastrophe).

Israeli tanks, troops enter Gaza

Propaganda war: trusting what we see?

Israel has tried to take the initiative in the propaganda war over Gaza but, in one important instance, its version has been seriously challenged.

The incident raises the question of how to interpret video taken from the air.

Israel released video of an air attack on 28 December, which appeared to show rockets being loaded onto a truck. The truck and those close to it were then destroyed by a missile.

It turned out, however, that a 55-year-old Gaza resident named Ahmed Sanur, or Samur, claimed that the truck was his and that he and members of his family and his workers were moving oxygen cylinders from his workshop.

This workshop had been damaged when a building next door was bombed by the Israelis and he was afraid of looters, he said.

The Israeli human rights group B'Tselem put Mr Sanur's account on its website, together with a photograph of burned out oxygen cylinders.

Israeli troops 'move into Gaza'

In one raid, at least 13 people were killed when a missile hit a crowded mosque in Beit Lahiya, medics said.

Israeli Lawmaker and Conscientious Objector Nephew of Ex-PM Benjamin Netanyahu Denounce Israeli Attack on Gaza Strip

Israel's righteous fury and its victims in Gaza

My visit back home to the Galilee coincided with the genocidal Israeli attack on Gaza. The state, through its media and with the help of its academia, broadcasted one unanimous voice -- even louder than the one heard during the criminal attack against Lebanon in the summer of 2006. Israel is engulfed once more with righteous fury that translates into destructive policies in the Gaza Strip. This appalling self-justification for the inhumanity and impunity is not just annoying, it is a subject worth dwelling on, if one wants to understand the international immunity for the massacre that rages on in Gaza.

Israel interrupts its radio, TV broadcasts in Gaza: Hamas

Obama and JINSA power

JINSA Blames Iran for Hamas’ Glorified Bottle Rockets
By Congress Check in Uncategorized on January 1st, 2009

"As The Forward reported on December 19, the in-coming Obama administration is receptive to JINSA demands. “In their first meeting with Jewish leaders Thursday, the Obama transition team proved that change is indeed on its way. For the first time in years, a full spectrum of Jewish groups sat around one table for a lengthy, detailed and civilized discussion about the future,” Nathan Guttman wrote. Representatives included the “hawkish ZOA and JINSA.” ZOA, short for the Zionist Organization of America, is specifically tasked with attacking critics of Israel nominated for important government positions and regularly ships off activists to Israel for leadership training programs."

Desperately Seeking Obama ( missing pair of testes}

Surely the lesson cannot be lost on President-elect Barack Obama. That such violence can be waged on so defenseless a population with the support of the Bush Administration is unconscionable. That Obama chooses to remain silent is nothing short of cowardice.

Obama's silence on the Gaza crisis grows more curious by the day; it has already cost him much political capital. He appears weak and ineffectual even before his inauguration, one more symbol of hope capitulating to the realpolitik of the ‘special' U.S./Israeli relationship.

Unfortunately, Obama is missing in action in this first challenge to his Presidency. The Israelis have used his own words to justify their aggression, and Obama has responded with a deafening silence. This does not bode well for the future.

Top 5 Lies About Israel’s Assault on Gaza

Lie #2) Hamas violated the cease-fire. The Israeli bombardment is a response to Palestinian rocket fire and is designed to end such rocket attacks.

Israel never observed the cease-fire to begin with. From the beginning, it announced a “special security zone” within the Gaza Strip and announced that Palestinians who enter this zone will be fired upon. In other words, Israel announced its intention that Israeli soldiers would shoot at farmers and other individuals attempting to reach their own land in direct violation of not only the cease-fire but international law.

Despite shooting incidents, including ones resulting in Palestinians getting injured, Hamas still held to the cease-fire from the time it went into effect on June 19 until Israel effectively ended the truce on November 4 by launching an airstrike into Gaza that killed five and injured several others.

Zionist assaults on Gaza bolster Iran front

Israel's war against Hamas has so far bolstered the anti-US Iran front and placed even more daunting challenges before incoming US president Barack Obama, analysts said.

Israeli bombardment of Gaza enters second week - 03 Dec 09

The Other Side of the Story!

Webmaster's Commentary:

A photo documentary of the damage on both sides.


While claims continue to be made by Israel justifying their attacks on Palestine as security for their country, Qishta feels this is just an excuse to “destroy the Gaza strip” and asks, “When are they going to feel secure? After they kill all the Palestinians?”


For the 7th day in consequence, Israeli military machine pursue the suffocating air raids and shelling through the Gaza Strip. Today’s bombings claimed lives of more Palestinian civilians while no militants recorded to be killed. Seven Palestinians killed today mostly children in the heavy ongoing raids.

Gaza facing 'critical emergency'

The UN has warned that Palestinians in Gaza are facing a serious health and food crisis, as Israeli air strikes continued for a seventh day.

Webmaster's Commentary:

But, but, but, Tzipi Livni says there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and she wouldn't lie to us, right? I mean, she's part of the Israeli government and they ALWAYS tell the truth, right? Right? Right?

Thousands across UK protest against Gaza bombings

Israel launched the offensive after more than a week of Palestinian rocket fire that followed a six-month truce.

Webmaster's Commentary:

As usual, no mention that it was Israel that broke the truce on November 4th with the blockade, and November 5th with the attack that killed 6 Hamas officials.

Jewish editor sacked for publishing article

This article was sent to Debbie Ducro, a American-Jewish journalist with the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle. She published it, and was fired the next day.

The Huffington Post: Israeli-Occupied Territory Why is the Huffington Post carrying water for the IDF? Follow the money …

There's a ready explanation of why, as the Israelis pound Gaza, the formerly antiwar Huffington Post has become a cheerleader for the IDF: it is due entirely to this.

When Arianna nabbed $25 million from Oak Investment Partners, of Palo Alto, California, she was acquired by a financial network that also has significant investments in the Israeli arms industry – an industry, I might add, directly subsidized and controlled by the Israeli government. For example, Oak Investment has invested in IET/Intelligent Electronics, now morphed into Clickservice Software, an Israeli-based company that makes sophisticated weapons systems and sells them to clients such as "an unnamed Far Eastern country." Oak Investment partner Fred Harman now sits on the Huffington Post's board.

Case closed. Mystery solved.

The Politics of An Israeli Extermination Campaign

Because of the unconditional support of the entire political class in the US, from the White House to Congress, including both Parties, incoming and outgoing elected officials and all the principle print and electronic mass media, the Israeli Government feels no compunction in publicly proclaiming a detailed and graphic account of its policy of mass extermination of the population of Gaza.

Gaza: the Belligerence of Oppression

The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is the most stubborn and indeed the most volatile political dilemma facing the world. Today, as in its inception over sixty years ago, the victims are denied their day in court. The cruelly caged, oppressed people of Palestine have a story to tell in the court of history…if only history would lend them the opportunity to be heard.

The saga of the oppression suffered by the people of Palestine does not begin with “…we became under rocket attack and we reacted accordingly,” unless, of course, the narrative is controlled by the oppressor.

Now that Israel is one of the mightiest military powers on the face of the earth; now that it has routinely been exercising that power without sense of proportionality and restraint and thus putting world security at a greater risk, it is high time to hold it accountable.

It is about time that the state of Israel is pressured to comply with the Geneva Convention or be dealt with as a rogue state.

Attacks condemned as supplies dwindle and deaths rise

DEPOSED PALESTINIAN prime minister and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh yesterday called for an immediate halt to the Israeli attack on Gaza, lifting of the siege and opening of all crossings.

"This war does not target just Hamas and the government, it is targeting Palestinians and their cause," he stated in a televised address as Gaza's death toll rose to 417.

Webmaster's Commentary:

None of this would be happening if Israel had accepted and implemented United Nations Resolution 242.

Thousands join march to protest against Israeli action

Protests against the Israeli offensive in Gaza became heated last night when up to 5,000 people gathered outside the country's London embassy.

A crowd dominated by young British Muslims cheered as Israeli flags were burned and some protesters hurled missiles, including a firework, at police.

Officers sealed off roads around Kensington High Street and armed themselves with riot shields as a small number of angry protesters tried to break down barriers protecting the building.

'NYT,' Most Others in U.S. Media, Silent as Israel Invades

Israel launched its much-anticipated invasion of Gaza on Saturday. For over a week, U.S. media had provided largely one-sided coverage of the conflict, with little editorializing or commentary arguing against broader Israeli actions.

Most notably, after more than eight days of Israeli bombing and Hamas rocket launching in Gaza, The New York Times had produced exactly one editorial, not a single commentary by any of its columnists, and only two op-eds (one already published elsewhere). The editorial, several days ago, did argue against the wisdom of a ground invasion - - but even though that invasion had become ever more likely all week the paper did not return to this subject.

Amazingly, the paper has kept that silence going in Sunday's paper, with no editorial or columnist comment on the Israeli invasion.

Israel – The Sociopathic State

The unconscionable attacks of Israel upon Gaza can be seen as the action of a sociopathic state upon a helpless victim. While the diagnosis of sociopathy is commonly reserved for the individual, it may be used to describe an entire society in a way that illuminates the behavior of that society towards another group of people. Sociopathy is a social concept by definition, and for this reason can be expanded to describe the nature of an entire society.

The ruling quality of the sociopath is a complete lack of empathy towards the Other. The sociopath is incapable of feeling for other people. The Israelis have kept the Gaza strip blockaded, hermetically sealed for a year and a half, causing untold suffering for the people of Gaza. The lack of empathy for so many helpless human beings is sociopathic. Israel has long held its status as a sociopathic state.

The Invasion of Gaza: "Operation Cast Lead", Part of a Broader Israeli Military-Intelligence Agenda

by Michel Chossudovsky

The aerial bombings and the ongoing ground invasion of Gaza by Israeli ground forces must be analysed in a historical context. Operation "Cast Lead" is a carefully planned undertaking, which is part of a broader military-intelligence agenda first formulated by the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in 2001.

Do Israel pilots feel happy killing innocent women and children?

"The Israeli planes came and suddenly the building collapsed on us. I saw four dead bodies near me. They were in pieces. Outside there were more bodies. Everyone was shouting. I lost consciousness and then found myself in hospital."

Five medics killed by Israeli forces in Gaza

“In addition to the doctor and medic that the Israeli military murdered on the 31st of December, they have killed five more medics today. One was shot in Jabaliya, one in Al Sheikh Ejleen. Three have just been killed when a missile directly hit their ambulance in the Tal Hawye neighborhood in Gaza City. The medics are constantly in contact with the Red Cross for them to negotiate passage with the Israelis. The Israelis constantly refuse.” Sharon Lock (Australia) – International Solidarity Movement

The Israelis dropped a bomb in front of our ambulance to prevent us accessing wounded people. However a donkey cart emerged carrying a wounded family; a mother and father and three teenage brothers. One of the teenagers was attempting to shield the other two with a blanket. They were both horrifically injured, I could see the lungs of one of them. As I assisted the medics to move him off the cart I found my hand inside his body.” Alberto Arce (Spain) – International Solidarity Movement

Webmaster's Commentary:

Intentionally targeting doctors and emergency services?

Just when you think Israel cannot go any lower, they show their true creativity.

Paramedic killed as shell hits ambulance in Gaza

A paramedic working for an Oxfam-funded organisation was killed today after an ambulance was hit by an Israeli-fired shell, the charity said.

The Palestinian, working for the Union of Health Work Committees, was killed in Gaza.

Violence Even Against Emergency Boat

Death and destruction is Israel's current Gaza policy. More than 500 have been killed since the massacre started, and a ground offensive began, while countries like Germany officially justify the slaughtering by saying that the Zionist state is defending itself and that Hamas is the only one to blame. The Free Gaza Movement takes a stand for occupied Palestine and does not believe that the war on Gaza is a defense or in any way constructive or justified. The Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, for example, one of the three civil society organisations which were the first to offcially invite the Free Gaza Movement to Gaza, was largely destroyed by Israeli F16 airplanes.

The First Gaza War

It started out as a week of pounding and killing of innocents from the air and sea, now the land offensive against the inhabitants of Gaza has commenced. Israel has demonstrated that it has overwhelming military power to bring about chaos, to destroy the infrastructure of a tiny impoverished land, and sow terrifying fear. Israel has also shown that it is completely indifferent to any sense of humanity toward the people of Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Fortunately, people are turning off the media and coming to places like this website.

Gaza Slaughter: Day 9 of Israeli War On Gaza

Five Palestinians from one family "Bakr" killed west of Gaza City. The mother was killed along with her 4 children in F16 rocket.

At least seven killed in Gaza mosque attack as Hamas cabinet insists on dialogue.

Meanwhile, Israeli artillery shelled the Gaza Strip, stepping up the offensive against Hamas as tanks and troops waited on the border for a possible ground offensive. Just before nightfall Israel launched artillery fire on Gaza for the first time in the offensive. The barrage caused a large blast in Gaza City as well as a series of blasts along the frontier.

May We No Longer Be Silent

In the West Bank, the Americans and Israelis imposed a puppet government, but Hamas held on in Gaza. After unheeded warnings to the Gazans to rid themselves of Hamas and accept a puppet government, Israel has decided to destroy the freely elected government with violence.

LEAKED: graphic, uncensored video shows carnage in Gaza

As Israel's IDF wages it's own "media war" via Twitter and YouTube, uncensored footage from Palestine has been completely blacked out in the US.

Until now.


Medicine students are being called to the local hospitals to deal with the number of victims which is dramatically going up. In opposition of Israeli key target of thing hamas militants, most of victims are civilians and this is so obvious in Gaza hospitals. Around 10 militant killed today and all the rest are normal people who have nothing to do with firing rockets and militants.

Israeli army trained in Gaza mock-up

The Israeli army spent 18 months training for its ground attack against Gaza on a model of the main city built at a desert army base, a military spokesman said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Which proves Israel intended this invasion of Gaza all along, and used the blockade and the attack on Nov 6th to provoke the Gazans into a reaction Israel could use to justify the already prepared-for war.

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

It seems redundant to try again to capture the unimaginable terror of living under zionist occupation when no amount of writing or video can convince the world to stop it. Avraham Burg, former speaker of the Knesset, has openly compared Israel to Nazi Germany, something the honourable Jews of Neturei Karta have been doing ever since the zionist cancer took hold in Palestine. Jewish comedienne Rosanne Barr has also come out to denounce the bombardment of Gaza as a Nazi-like war atrocity.

More pictures from Gaza

Webmaster's Commentary:

Image 7 shows the use of incendiary bombs against the civilian population. This is a war crime, and puts the lie to Israel's claims that they are only targeting Hamas.


As if putting 1.5 million people at risk of starvation was not enough, Israel weighed a brutal attack on Gaza today, killing more than 200 people, with 750 injured, including women and children. Once again I beg you reader, my brothers and sisters-in-arts, to spread these cartoons. Reproduce them in posters, newspapers, magazines, zines, blogs, everywhere. Let's make the voice of the Gaza people to be heard all around the world. Thank you, in the name of the Palestinians of Gaza.

Now the kids, when they say their prayers, are asking God for smaller balloons.

Demonstrators hurl shoes at Downing Street in day of global protest against Israeli attacks

Demonstrators demanding an end to Israeli airstrikes on Gaza hurled their shoes at the gates of Downing Street yesterday during a wave of global protests.


In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Arabs as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

But as the public trial progressed, it was evident that Israel had indeed been behind the bombing. Eventually, Israeli's Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was brought down by the scandal, although it appears that he was himself the victim of a frame-up by the real authors of the bombing project, code named "Operation Susannah."

USS Liberty

On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public. The USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died.

Israeli troops and Hamas fighters clash in Gaza City

Israeli soldiers and Hamas militants fought gun battles in the streets of Gaza City for the first time this morning, with Israeli troops going house to house searching for Hamas fighters.

'08-'09 Israeli-Gaza War

The first attempt at trying to end the war came a few days into the conflict, when Israeli and American sources floated the idea, with French backing, that Israel was considering suspending its attacks for 48-hours. However, the truth behind that proposal was that Israel was concerned that the Gaza Strip was scheduled to be under heavy cloud cover for those 48 hours, restricting Israeli warplanes' visibility while simultaneously providing Hamas rocket teams with cover.

Israel had hoped that Hamas would fall for the bait, keeping Israel safe from Hamas rockets for 48 hours, after which Israel (perhaps with help from the Fatah group) would “engineer” a few rockets designed to ‘break the truce’, allowing them to re-launch its offensive in clearer weather.

Nonetheless, Hamas refused to take the bait, and Israeli officials distanced themselves from the proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Hamas probably remembered that it was right in the middle of the previous 48 hour cease fire that Israel started the bombing campaign.


An Israeli medic carries a wounded woman from the scene of a rocket attack in the southern city of Ashkelon January 5, 2009. Combat between Israeli troops and Hamas militants raged on Monday as Israel pressed home its a ground assault in Gaza in the face of French-led diplomatic efforts to broker a ceasefire. The offensive will go on until communities in Israel were safe from Hamas rocket strikes, Defence Minister Ehud Barak said.

World's Number One Terrorist

What Israel thinks of Catholics and Christians

Above is a picture of a Catholic child from Gaza, 14 year old Christine Turok, lying in a coffin after being killed in Israel's latest fit of Talmudic hatred - one of many innocent children, women and men, Christian and Muslim, slaughtered by the drive to consolidate Eretz Yisrael.

I know that in the United States, from where we attract many readers, there are white, European Christians and Catholics who wholly support Israel in the belief that they are God's "Chosen People" - a theological fallacy which has crept even into the Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council.

Theology and the Crucifixion aside, let's reason for one second: would "God's Chosen People" perpetrate, or collectively support the perpetration of, such an orgy of genocide and destruction as we are witnessing in Gaza? Would "God's Chosen People" hinder a Catholic Archbishop from celebrating pre-Christmas Masses in Gaza, before murdering members of his congregation from the air with impunity?

Rationalizing Gaza

let's revisit – and reverse – the Israeli argument, putting all the known facts in their proper context. If Mexico – in an attempt to regain its lost territory, the promised land of California – invaded California, drove the residents of San Diego from their city, cooped them up in, say, Death Valley, and wouldn't let anything but a basic minimum of consumer goods and medical supplies either in or out, well, we all know what would happen.

Israeli forces kill five Palestinian children in Gaza

Israel was reported to be using white phosphorous shells to cover the advance of its troops: the munitions are not illegal, but their use has been heavily criticised for causing terrible burns.

Webmaster's Commentary:

WP is illegal if it is used against people, and keep in mind that WP shells are incendiary devices, which can set fire to entire neighborhoods. This puts the lie to Israel's claims that they are only targeting Hamas.

Rome's Jewish Chairman inadvertently exposes Zionist trick!

Pacifici explains that the Italian Jewish community agreed with the Israeli ambassador on keeping a "low profile"at this time. "I can assure you - writes Pacifici - that the decision to send medicine to Palestinian and Israeli children was taken only for media purposes, and was only used for our struggle which will start on Monday in the media to support Israel". Pacifici announces that on January 10th there will be a "mega-event" with 1,500 personalities chosen together with the Israeli ambassador in order to "explain Israel's reasons and its right to make this war".

Pacifici explains that the Roman Jewish community did not spend "even one Euro" for the medicine, which was donated by "an international Jewish organization" and guarantees that "in any case not one piece of medicine will get to Gaza unless it has been authorized by the Government of Israel".

Israel armed with internet savvy

The thermal imaging footage shot from an Israeli drone hovering over Gaza shows eight Palestinian militants loading rockets on to a lorry. Within seconds, the drone’s sights are locked on to the vehicle and it and the ghostlike figures nearby are incinerated in a missile blast.

Or so tens of thousands of visitors to the popular video-posting internet site YouTube have been led to believe. The clip was one of several dramatic scenes uploaded to the site by the Israeli army last week, the first time a national army has created its own YouTube channel.

A subsequent investigation by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem attracted less attention. It suggests the rockets were in fact gas canisters and that the supposed militants were civilians moving welding equipment after their workshop had been damaged in one of the hundreds of Israeli air strikes on Gaza over the past week.

Thousands of children forced to flee Gaza airstrikes

At least 13,000 Palestinians have been forced to flee their homes in Gaza as the bombardment continues into its seventh day, Save the Children said today.

More than half of those displaced people are children.

Reports suggest Israeli forces using cluster bombs in Gaza.»

Haaretz reports that, as Israeli ground forces entered Gaza yesterday, “hundreds of shells were fired, including cluster bombs aimed at open areas.” FireDogLake’s Siun writes, “The use of cluster bombs — which have a large footprint when initially dropped and then remain a threat for decades — in a location like the Gaza Strip which is so packed with people is horrifying.” (FDL notes that video footage seems to confirm the use of cluster bombs.) Last summer, a former Israeli defense official said that “the Israeli military used cluster bombs for two weeks during the 2006 Lebanon war without telling the Israeli government.” At the time, the UN decried the use of the bombs as “completely immoral.”

Gaza City residents hunker down

Five civilians die when shells hit a market, while most residents stay indoors to avoid Israeli shelling. 'Anyone who survives this wave, it will be like they were born again,' said one man.


Reporting from Gaza City and Jerusalem -- As Israeli forces closed in on Gaza City, Mohammed Barbari joined the scramble by its most intrepid residents Sunday for dwindling supplies of food they would need while hunkering down at home.

The first explosion tore through the central Firas Market at 11:30 a.m. as he approached from adjacent Palestine Square. Unable to turn his yellow Volkswagen Golf around in traffic, he kept driving toward the hail of shrapnel and the screams of scattering shoppers.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This confirms that there was an Israeli attack on a market place. It appears that the Israeli shills put out a video from 2005 in order to obscure and discredit any videos leaking out about the current atrocities.


Twenty hours later, the wounded were still bleeding in a shed in the courtyard of the house. There was no electricity, no heat, no water. Their relatives were with them, but every time they tried to leave the courtyard to fetch water, the army shot at them.

Hamas is to Israel What The Minutemen Were To Britain...


I arrived in Israel 40 years ago. It took me many years to understand that the very existence of my country, as it is today, is based on an ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. The project started many years ago. Its seed can be traced to the basic fallacy of the Zionist movement, which set out to establish a Jewish-national state in a location already inhabited by another nation. Under these conditions, one has, at most, a moral right to strive for a bi-national state; establishing a national state implies, more or less by definition, ethnic cleansing of the previous inhabitants.


Early 2006, Palestinians in the West Bank and especially in the Gaza Strip voted overwhelmingly for Hamas in a transparent and a fair election that was monitored by the former US President Carter. In response, all Western Powers (European Union and the United States), the “Moderate” Arab Regimes, and the Israelis conspired to topple the newly elected government (see related articles section for details). As a first response, the Israeli government jailed all the elected Hamas’ representatives in the West Bank and Western Powers started all sorts of blockade against the freely elected government. I’m not a fan of Hamas or its agenda, however, I believe it’s critical to understand why these Arab leader joined the Western Powers & Israel in a conspiracy to oust the freely elected Palestinian Government. To simply say they are puppets in hands of Israel and Western powers is not good enough, there must be more to it than that.

The World Should Stop Israel's Killing Machine

Today's Israel began its existence as a terrorist nation. That is a hard fact for many people to accept, but it is true. Great Britain and the United States were complicit in the formation of the Jewish state in 1947-48, and both nations are presently aware that Israel has undeclared nuclear weapons pointing at its neighbors, as it lies to the world and claims to be a non-nuclear entity.

Israel has evolved into a country that kills large numbers of Palestinian people in retaliation for the loss of a few of their own. Today, it is a country despised by its neighbors over its lack of lethal restraint in resolving its affairs.

But it is important to remember that just as Americans have writhed and cringed under the leadership of George W. Bush, rational Israeli's are equally dismayed and concerned over their country's militaristic approach to dealing with problems.

Israel is on its way to reoccupying all of the Gaza Strip

The way events played out yesterday did not stir the political leadership into thinking of stopping the ground offensive and moving toward a cease-fire. On the contrary, Israel is moving toward a decision to occupy the whole Gaza Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary:

... which is exactly what I predicted would happen way back in 2005 when Ariel Sharon made a deal with Bush to pull Israel out of Gaza in exchange for the US turning a blind eye to the building of illegal settlements in the West Bank. I predicted (call it "warned") that as soon as the settlements were completed that Israel would manufacture a reason to go back into Gaza; to have their cake and eat it too!

The Politics of An Israeli Extermination Campaign: Backers, Apologists and Arms Suppliers

Because of the unconditional support of the entire political class in the US, from the White House to Congress, including both Parties, incoming and outgoing elected officials and all the principle print and electronic mass media, the Israeli Government feels no compunction in publicly proclaiming a detailed and graphic account of its policy of mass extermination of the population of Gaza.

Israel’s sustained and comprehensive bombing campaign of every aspect of governance, civic institutions and society is directed toward destroying civilized life in Gaza. Israel’s totalitarian vision is driven by the practice of a permanent purge of Arab Palestine informed by Zionism, an ethno-racist ideology, promulgated by the Jewish state and justified, enforced and pursued by its organized backers in the United States.

Have Bush and the Neocons Ruined it for the Israelis?

The Israeli propaganda blitz around their attack on Gaza has been greeted with uncharacteristic skepticism by the American public and even by some of the mainstream US press. Even the Jewish American community is uneasy about this one, in a way perhaps unparalelled since the 1982 Israeli attack on Lebanon and siege of Beirut. Jews for Peace in Los Angeles are actively protesting the Gaza atrocities, and newspaper articles from around the US on local protests held this weekend often mention mixed Arab-American and Jewish-American rallies.

If it is true that Americans are greeting Israeli talking points with more criticism this time, is it because we have been intensively exposed for the past 8 years to precisely this sort of mental manipulation by Bush-Cheney and their stable of Neoconservatives?

Let's take some of the basic techniques of propaganda practiced by Bush and compare them to those deployed by the Israeli leadership in the past 8 days.


This morning I turned on the TV (I know, my first mistake) to see the corporate media talking heads once again trying to link the situation in Gaza to Iran, about how Iran was really behind all the Mideast troubles and how Israel and the US had every right to attack Iran because of their "nuclear ambitions". I guess following the embarrassment that Iraq did not actually have "nookular bombs" after all has changed the strategy; now the claim is that merely desiring nuclear weapons is sufficient excuse to lay waste to another country.

So, I am going to start relinking the WRH articles related to how Israel tricked us into war in Iraq and how they are pushing us to make war on their other enemies.

What if Israel Was the Victim?

What if the roles of Israel, Gaza, and members of the international community in the ongoing conflict were reversed? How would Americans and their government respond?

Webmaster's Commentary:

The same way the US Government reacted when Israel claimed Iraq had 'nookular' weapons.

Why Hamas (and Hizbullah) Will be Difficult to Defeat

Hamas and Hizbullah are the ideological step-children of the Likud Party and especially Ariel Sharon, whose embrace of violence, racism and colonization as the primary means of dealing with occupied Arab populations ultimately generated a will to resist. The trio currently carrying on Sharon’s legacy of brutality -- Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak and Tzipi Livni -- seem genetically blind to the fact that the more force and brutality Israel uses against Arabs, the greater is the response in the form of more effective resistance movements that have wider public support.

Israel Commits Genocide on Tuesday, Strikes Schools

In its last but not least crime, Israeli occupation forces killed at least 40 people, mostly children, who had taken refuge inside a UN school in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, in the third such attack in a day, medics said.

Indeed, Israeli paper Haaretz is quoting sources at the UN who say Khalilzad had been ordered by the State Department to “torpedo any initiative proposed by the Arab bloc which is designed to grant the Security Council the status of an official arbiter that will have direct involvement with disentangling the Gaza crisis.” And a tangled mess it is.

This why they have given the US and the US Ambassador Khalizad their "marching orders" to defuse any possible UN resolution regarding a potential cease-fire, with instructions to veto such a resolution immediately, and prevent it from ever taking place.

What Israel wants is the military victory, enabling them to re-occupy all of Gaza. Of course, what happens to Gazan Palestinians once this is accomplished (those left standing, that is), is anyone's guess.

Norwegian doctor: Israel intentionally targeting civilians

"At the same time they bombed an apartment house with children playing on the roof and we had a lot of children also. This is really like from Dante's Inferno. It's like hell here now and it's been bombing all night. Up till now, close to 500 people have been killed and the number of casualties is getting to 2, 2 and a half thousand, which 50 percent are children and women."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Looks as though Israel's "Final Solution" for Gazan Palestinians is going just the way they they have planned it so far, courtesy of an enabling US and a totally corrupt corporate media.

Flashback - How to spot an antisemitic hate crime hoax

The information below was collected from the book "Crying Wolf - Hate Crime Hoaxes in America" written by Laird Wilcox.

Webmaster's Commentary:

I am relinking this because Israel is desperate to maintain its public image as victim-with-right-to-defend-itself-by-any-means in the current conflict, and as predicted earlier this week we are seeing a rash of so-called hate crimes, some of which at least appear to be more of the sorts of hoaxes used to bolster self-declared victimhoods in the past.

Truth is the first casualty of war. Be skeptical. as George Carlin stated, "The consensus reality is usually bullshit."

Gaza conflict sowing violence, attacks on Jews in Europe

Israel's offensive against Hamas militants in Gaza has sparked protests across Europe, and now there are signs that some of that sentiment is turning violent.

Assaults on Jews and arson attacks against Jewish congregations are being reported in a number of countries.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And I'll bet many of them are hoaxes trying to build sympathy for poor little Israel.

'40 killed at UN school' in Gaza

Israeli tank shells killed at least 40 Palestinians today at a UN school where civilians had taken shelter, medical officials said, in carnage likely to boost international calls for a halt to Israel's Gaza offensive.

U.N. official says Gaza school was clearly marked

A U.N. official in Gaza said a school where dozens of Palestinians were killed by tank shells on Tuesday was clearly marked with a U.N. flag and its location had been reported to Israeli authorities.

FLASHBACK - Annan ‘shocked’ by Israeli attack on UN Lebanon post

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel has a long history of shelling UN facilities in the lands it invades.

" In order to save the village we had to destroy it"

The BBC are reporting that, "at least 40 people have been killed in an Israeli air strike on the United Nations-run al-Fakhura girls school in the Gaza Strip". BBC video (timed 4.35 GMT) Israeli captain on school attack - Captain Elie Isaacson of the Israeli Defence Force said that they had had "major operational successes" in Gaza. He told the BBC's Ben Brown that the Israeli army wants to "get this thing finished as soon as possible" .. but wouldn't comment on the school massacre as they didn't have "accurate information".

Medics 'unable to reach Gaza wounded'

PEOPLE wounded in fighting in the Gaza Strip are dying because ambulances cannot reach them, the International Committee of the Red Cross said today.

"The situation is extremely dangerous and the co-ordination of ambulance services is very complex because of the incessant attacks and military operations," ICRC spokeswoman Dorothea Krimitsas said in Geneva.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Because ambulances are so well marked, they're like sitting ducks for the IDF to pick off, one by one, preventing care for wounded civilians.

But of course, this is one of the outcomes Israel wants to see happen for Gazan civilians as a result of military operations; if they are wounded, no medical care will be possible.

I Am Ashamed

The latest war crime on behalf of the whiners in Israel and their blind and ignorant supporters in the US have resulted in the deaths of 531 Palestinians and an additional 2500 wounded. Let me put that into perspective. The US has 200 times the population so for us to experience the same causalities, we would have to have 106,200 deaths and some 500,000 wounded in ten days of massacre.

Venezuela expels Israeli ambassador

Chavez called the Israeli army "cowards"

Israel's Ambassador to Venezuela has been expelled amid claims his country is carrying out genocide.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called the Israeli army "cowards," while the foreign minister alleged the Jewish state was engaged in "state terrorism."

"Chavez called on Jewish people around the world to oppose "these criminal policies of the state of Israel that recall the worst pages of the history of the 20th century.""

""The Holocaust, that is what is happening right now in Gaza. The president of Israel at this moment should be taken to the International Criminal Court together with the President of
the United States," he said."

Israeli F-16 planes hit a 4-storey apartment building belonging to civilians in Gaza on Tuesday. While the building was razed to the ground, 25 people were killed in the building.

A Historical Survey of Proposals to Transfer Arabs from Palestine, 1895-1947 (1988)

The rabbi tells the story of the most monstuous political project of the nineteenth century. The author is a devoted supporter of the rightist fringes of the Zionist movement, those who think that Sharon is sold to the Arabs ! He compiled with a great care all the proposals, coming from all political sides, to empty Palestine of its native population. It appears that all and every Zionist had one and only one dream: to kick the Arabs out, and preferably dump them in Iraq. It also appears that if Zionist could not achieve their goal, it was due to the resistance and the resilience of the Palestinians, who started to actively oppose Zionist projects in 1936. Zionism is, in its essence, a crime, but an unfinished crime. Its only goal is to destroy others, non-Jews. This is the most important genocidal project of the passed century.

Kingdom denounces silence — Palestinian factions asked to unite

Saudi Arabia yesterday denounced the silence of the international community over the ferocious Israeli war on unarmed Palestinians in Gaza and the collective punishment inflicted on the inhabitants of the territory.

“The international stand of silence and defeatism in dealing with Israeli atrocities (in Gaza) has no parallel,” said a statement issued by the Council of ministers.

The Cabinet said the Israeli military attack that has killed and injured hundreds of innocent people and destroyed vital infrastructure, violated humanitarian principles as well as international law and agreements.

The Cabinet also disproved the Israeli claim that its aggression against Gaza was for self-defense against Hamas rocket fire, saying that claim has ignored the Jewish state’s history of occupation of Palestinian land, its policy of economic blockade on its people and its negative response to Arab peace initiatives.
