Facts All US Citizens Need to Know About Israel and Palestine

  • Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.
  • But, even ignoring international law and that Gaza is under illegal Israeli occupation, Gaza did not initiate this current round of violence; Israel did:
    • Western/US/Israeli propaganda says the violence started with the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli youths on June 12th. That is a lie:
    • On May 20th, the Israeli government murdered 2 unarmed Palestinian teens, one on video, and wounded a third.
    • The firing of pathetic scrap metal rockets from impoverished Gaza, which have killed no one, were in fact launched in response to earlier Israeli bombings, killings, assassinations, and arrests of Palestinians, including children.
  • Since the year 2000, Israel has killed 1,500 Palestinian children, while Palestinians have killed 132 Israeli children. That means Israel has killed over 1,000% percent more Palestinian children than vice versa.
  • According to a landmark, comprehensive study of all of Israel’s wars, by Zeev Maoz, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Davis, former head of the Graduate School of Government and Policy and of the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, and former academic director of the M.A. Program at the Israeli Defense Forces’ National Defense College:
    • “. most of the wars in which Israel was involved were the result of deliberate Israeli aggressive design . None of these wars – with the possible exception of the 1948 War of independence – was what Israel refers to as Milhemet Ein Berah (war of necessity). They were all wars of choice . ” – Defending the Holy Land, pg. 35, (bold added)
    • “I review a number of peace-related opportunities ranging from the Zionist-Hashemite collusion in 1947 through the collapse of the Oslo Process in 2000. In all those cases I find that Israeli decision makers – who had been willing to embark upon bold and daring military adventures – were extremely reluctant to make even the smallest concessions for peace . I also find in many cases Israel was engaged in systematic violations of agreements and tacit understandings between itself and its neighbors.” – Defending the Holy Land, pg. 40
  • Israel has violated more UN resolutions than any other country. That includes Iraq under Hussein.
  • Hamas is the government elected by Gaza in elections that Jimmy Carter (and many others) observed and said were completely fair and free. Israel constantly says Hamas uses human shields. But in Israel’s biggest massacre of Gaza, the one in 2009, all the human rights organizations, including Amnesty, HRW, and the jurist Richard Goldstone, found that Hamas DID NOT use human shields. On the contrary, Israel used human shields, which is a regular practice for Israel. Israel uses civilians as human shields.
    • Israel forced Palestinian civilians to dig and lay naked in trenches around Israeli tanks. See here at 6:45.
      • XIV. THE USE OF PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS
      • “The Mission received allegations that in two areas in north Gaza Israeli troops used Palestinian men as human shields… The Mission found the foregoing witnesses to be credible and reliable. It has no reason to doubt the veracity of their accounts and found that the different stories serve to support the allegation that Palestinians were used as human shields.”
  • Noam Chomsky: “Hamas is regularly described as ‘Iranian-backed Hamas, which is dedicated to the destruction of Israel.’ One will be hard put to find something like ‘democratically elected Hamas, which has long been calling for a two-state settlement in accord with the international consensus’—blocked for over 30 years by the US and Israel. All true, but not a useful contribution to the Party Line, hence dispensable.”
  • In the history of all rocket and mortar fire into Israel, 26 people, total, have been killed. And remember, Palestine breaks ceasefires far less often than Israel, as documented above.
    • This number of 26 is in contrast to the minimum number of 1,400 people who were murdered by Israel in a single one of its terrorist atrocities, the 2009 Gaza Massacre.
    • Noting that in the current massacre, zero Israelis and over 100 Palestinians have thus far been killed, and noting that Gaza is a concentration camp – Israel allows no one to enter or leave – Dan Sanchez gives a perfect description of the disparity in arms between the US/Israeli war machine and Palestinian scrap metal projectiles: “They [the Gazans] are like fish in a barrel, being blasted by a shotgun from above. It’s like some of the fish in the barrel pathetically spitting water at the gunman, and [US media calls] that a “shooting battle.”
  • The rhetoric and tactics of Hamas and other groups resisting Israeli occupation and colonization can be brutal (though far less so than Israel). Propagandists try to attribute this to anti-Semitism, to distract from the fact that these groups are resisting having their country stolen and their people dispossessed and annihilated. Native American resistance to European colonizers was sometimes extremely brutal, as was their rhetoric, but everyone universally recognizes that this was not because of “anti-White-ism”, or “anti-European-ism”, but because they were having their land stolen and their people massacred, the same thing that Israel is doing to the Palestinians.
    • Palestinians have the right under international law to resist occupation, ethnic cleansing, colonization, aggression, and annexation. Miko Peled, son of an Israeli general, recently stated that if Israel doesn’t Like rockets, they should decolonize Palestine. Dr. Norman Finkelstein notes that “The Palestinians have the right to use arms to resist an occupation . However, the fact that morally and legally they have that right doesn’t mean that it’s the most prudent strategy. In my opinion, a national Palestinian leadership committed to mobilizing nonviolent resistance can defeat the Israeli occupation if those of us living abroad lend support to it.”
  • In 1948, the people who wanted to form a Jewish state carried out a massive terror and ethnic cleansing campaign against the occupants of Palestine, expelling about half of them (750,000) from their land and into concentrated areas (Gaza and West Bank). Israel has slowly continued colonizing even those areas, which were specifically reserved by the UN for Palestinians. Israel takes all the best land and resources, such as water. Here is a visualization of what has happened, and is currently happening with massive support from Obama:

  • Israeli settlement building in Palestine is a war crime under international law. Under Obama, Israeli settlement building is up over 130%.
  • For about 40 years, there has been an international consensus that Israel must stop colonizing territory outside its 1967 borders. The consensus has been blocked by the United States, in isolation from the international community (much like the USA’s isolated, strong support for South African Apartheid). Every year there is a UN vote on the issue, and every year it goes about 165 to 2, the world against the US and Israel. This continues under Obama. All human rights groups support the consensus, as does Hamas, the Arab League, Iran, the Organization of the Islamic Conference… Virtually everyone, except the US and Israel. (More details on this page.)
  • Palestinians are brutalized, repressed and impoverished by Israel. To get a quick visual understanding of the difference between Gaza and Israel, take a look at the images of people and cities being wantonly pummeled by Israeli terrorism when you search the word “Gaza“, and the images of opulence, wealth and luxury that come up when you search “Tel Aviv“.
  • Israel, whose government intentionally targets, tortures, and murders civilians, including children, including with chemical weapons, and whose government uses Palestinian civilians as human shields, and whose government is the last entity on Earth carrying out old-style ethnic cleansing and colonization of foreign countries, is the single biggest recipient of US aid, at over three billion dollars a year and huge amounts of lethal weaponry such as attack helicopters and white phosphorous chemical explosives.
  • To reiterate, Obama requested more military aid for Israel than any president ever. This is not because Obama and the USA love Jewish people. Obama was recently an accomplice in a literal neo-Nazi-led coup d’etat in Ukraine, and is currently fully supporting the junta-integrated Ukrainian government, which is staffed with several neo-Nazis in high ministries, and which uses neo-Nazi paramilitaries to carry out massacres (and possibly genocide) against people resistant to the junta. The actual reason the US supports Israel is discussed below.
  • As Amnesty International has noted, all aid to Israel is illegal under international (and US) law, because Israel is a consistent violator of human rights.

Amnesty International also noted that Israel’s 2009 massacre of Gaza would not have been possible without the illegal funding (money and weapons) and support Israel gets from the USA.

This is also true of the current massacre Israel is committing in Gaza.

However, in a way, that is good news.

That means US citizens can STOP the massacres.

If we stop our money and weapons-flow to Israel, which is illegal anyway, we stop Israeli terrorism! All we have to do is stop committing a crime, and we will stop more crimes! That’s great news.

Here is a previous example of how this has worked: When the USA cut its funding for Indonesia’s genocide against East Timor, which the USA was funding almost exclusively, Indonesia was forced to stop and withdraw. All it took was cutting off our illegal flow of money and weapons to the criminals.

The same thing would happen if we cut our illegal funding for Israel’s genocides and acts of terrorism, ethnic cleansing, colonization, and annexation against Palestine.

But since the USA is an anti-democratic country, the only way to stop US plutocrats from using our money to fund Israeli terrorism is to force it through massive, non-violent pressure.

One way it happens is when it becomes too politically costly for the plutocracy to keep funding genocide and terror, meaning the costs of their illegal support outweigh the benefits, as in Indonesia. In that case, massive publicity and indigenous resistance accomplished the goal.

But Israel is the USA’s main imperial – and nuclear – base for controlling the Middle East, which US planners, in 1945, called the greatest material prize in world history, due to the oil and gas. Thus, it might require more, as in non-violently making our country into a democracy so that people control their own institutions and money, and thus the way we operate as a society and interact with the world.

Last note: To be clear, Israel is a legal state, but only within the borders allotted to it by the United Nations – the Pre-1967 borders, which existed before Israel started eating away, through terror, ethnic cleansing, colonization, and annexation, at the areas reserved by the United Nations for Palestinians, as well as areas of other countries, such as Syria (the Golan Heights).

Per international law, US domestic law, and common sense, Israel doesn’t deserve any support until it abandons isolationism and accepts that it can’t steal other people’s countries, and stops blockading and withdraws its soldiers and settlers, all there illegally, from those countries.

Israel is, militarily, the most powerful country in the Middle East, by far. Removing our support for the Israeli government (which we are legally required to do) will not put Israelis in danger. It will pressure the Israeli government to stop doing what endangers Israelis, which is committing aggressive acts against Israel’s neighbors.

If Israel ends its status as a consistent violator of human rights, decolonizes Palestine, and respects its neighbors, it could be a pleasure – and legal – to work with and support Israel.

Germany, Japan, and South Africa went from being the most reviled countries on Earth to being some of the most admired. Maybe Israel could undergo the same transformation, but not unless we, US citizens, help by ceasing to enable Israeli terrorism and war crimes by illegally supporting them.

    Thanks a lot for your research and insights. arosa108@yahoo.com

    I’m not saying Palestinians in Gaza are firing rockets, but has there been any proof beyond a doubt? If so, where? All I see is Netanyahu via the “news” say 600 rockets were fired from Gaza. Like I said previously, I find it hard to believe the open-air prison called Gaza, where they can’t even smuggle in food, they are somehow smuggling in rockets.

    WHAT IF……….Palestinians AREN’T firing “rockets from Gaza”? They simply just “say” they are?

    In the paper, it said that Netanyahu said they targeted 1,100 sites to bomb in Gaza. If they KNOW this is where rockets are coming from AHEAD OF TIME (else how would they know where to target?), then why don’t they STOP THEM AHEAD OF TIME?

    Is that a good question? Is Netanyahu saying that they totally control/occupy Gaza, and I’m sure they know every inch of what’s going on, are we to think that there’s 1,100 spots they suddenly realized they need to bomb, and they figured this out in the last few days?

    • Sally

      Wow, you are intentionally ignorant. How can Israel stop a rocket ahead of time? The best way is for Gaza not to fire them in the first place. It’s called “prevention.”

      • http://bigdanblogger.blogspot.com/ Big Dan

        How do you know Israeli operatives aren’t firing them? Or NO ONE’S firing them, they’re just “making it up”? OR…they blow off a bomb and say a rocket did it?

        • Sally

          Actually, your concept is right, just the wrong people – in that the Palestinians use their children as human shields.

          And I’m sure you personally launch rockets against your own family, too. You’d fit in well with the jihadis.

          • Peter Warner

            Your ignorance dwarfs your ego. You’ve drunk more than enough of the AIPAC and neocon kool-aid. Do you have personal evidence that Palestinians fire rockets, or are you just parroting back the right-wing media tripe?

          • svivog

            you’re right! The Palestinians use their own children as human shields. Mothers volunteer their own children to blow themselves up in honor of what they believe in. So sad and SO UNNECESSARY!

            then why are 1 billions out side of middle east still living…how come no one blows them selves in USA, QATAR or even dubai? arabs are not even the majority of muslims around the world….

            wow you are a very retarded person. Actually, jew soldiers use palestine civilians as shields, not the palestine theirselves. You are so full of shit its amazing.

          • ben

            Who is killing palestinian children… Israel
            I lived in Israel for years, in Jerusalem, they just want an excuse to beat others, from the foreign kids of the neighbourhood to puppies and kittens….. sadomaso.
            Whilst living in the middle east, the most hostile people were the people of Jerusalem, im not saying everyone was, Tel-Aviv is alot more welcoming to us but Jerusalem is still very very backwards….

            Are you serious?, really?. Jews arent not even a race and races/countries aernt really linked anyway (do races even exists). I guess you are one of those good jews who allow a 70 yo old pedo fart to suck the dick of their new born child “for religious and traditional matters”. Right?. You seem so brainwashed you probably are also one of those.. Btw, do your goverment also do such things?. I bet.

          Stop you ignorance!!! Stop ur brothers Hamas from sending rockets and then hiding behind babies

          • hassan makhdum

            hamas will not stop till the last Zionazi scum is erased from earth! so fuck off!

      • Elke

        Salley……….I think you need to really know what you are saying, you are being very ignorant about this subject so you should not be here. So don’t go accusing before you know the truth. If you don’t think that Israel has the intelligence of creating the Iron Shield (that’s what it is called) to stop missiles in mid air then you shouldn’t use your cell phone , or the computer you are using to write all this nonsense because they are israeli inventions. That is why you don’t hear of many Israel casualties, not because nothing is being done to them but because Israel cares about their people and comes up with things like the iron shield to stop hamas bombs. Instead Hamas uses their women and children as shields to be killed so they can blame Israel. And don’t go reading Jew hating literature, it is not healthy for the mind. Hamas is teaching children how to fire a gun and how to hate and kills them and blames Israel. Instead, really read everything, not what is convenient. Did you know that a lot of the pictures that are being put on the internet are old? for example, the same picture of a baby who died in Syria , is being shown now and they are saying that it is from gaza. There is a war going on, and there are two sides, one side cares about their people including Palestinians who are being taken care of in Israeli hospitals because hamas doesn’t want to bother and then there is hamas who is making sure that the media tells their lies making the israelis the guilty ones. So my thing is that if you don’t know ,then shouldn’t
        give your opinion.

        • Sally

          Earth to Elke: Please improve your reading skills. I never said Israel didn’t develop the Iron Dome. I argued with you when you said Israel should learn how to stop a rocket ahead of time. Unless you are talking about time travel, that’s impossible – You can only destroy the rocket, after it’s launched, before it hits a civilian area. And BTW, It’s Sally.

          • Sally and Scott

            Sally and Scott: The inbreds of this blog. Did the two of you mingle after your mega church circle jerk?

          • d

            Yes, and they probably had a baby they sent to some 70 yo pedo to mutilate his dick and suck his blood off.. Seems like jewish customs is being a vampiric pedophile coz “god says it”. This people wont stop amazing me with their “practices”. See people, They kill other’s children, of course they do. They mutilate their own babies and suck their blood, why wouldnt they kill other gent’s children?. I wonder if they wander the spots later on to find bits of children to eat. Wouldnt be surprise since they seem a bit canibal….

    • Danielle

      I hear them overhead. My kids hear them, I saw one blown up today, my daughter was covering in the street yesterday in panic when the siren went off. There are rockets non stop.

      • Serjen

        Oh you poor thing! The Gazan children’s heads are getting blown up by Israeli bombings, so I find it hard to sympathize with your poor child having to cover her head in panic when a siren went off.

        • Guest

          Serjen,

          You are a fucking moron, before you make your moronic comments why don’t you do a little research. Hamas is a terrorist group who use Palestinian civilians as human shields. It was reported today by the PALESTINIANS that Hamas rockets where found in Palestinian schools. In addition whoever wrote this article if a fucking moron as well and should not be considered a journalist. I would love to see documentation on the facts stated in the article.

          • mahdionnet

            “Guest”, eh? how familiar is your literature.
            What other foolish
            reasons have you to kill children? yeah, the rocket are in schools,
            apartments and … huh, remembered! inside the ball that those children
            playing with at the beach.
            These are foolish reasons to hide the real
            aim of killing innocent women and children. “Genocide” to own up the
            occupied land completely. First Gaza, then other parts of Palestine then
            Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Sudan (Huh, isn’t it why zionists divided Sudan to
            south and north?). “THE GREAT LAND OF israel” isn’t it?

          maybe if the gazan people didnt antagonise israel in the first place then you wouldnt be having this issue. You can’t be serious to say that you can just let a few rockets explode over in israel and not do something about it.

          If they stopped poking isreal with the stick then maybe something could be resolved. They are literally doing it to their own people.

      • Jonathan Pollard

        Israelis need US aid in the Hamas attacks to buy large quantities of Depends and allay huge laundry costs.

      • Margarita

        In the west and especially in the US, one of the least known elements
        of the story of the Israel-Palestinian conflict is the ugly story of
        how the Palestinians were uprooted from their land and homes leading up
        to and through the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. The heroic
        story of how the Jews, ‘a people without a land’ came to occupy ‘a land
        without a people’, was always based on a false premise. Palestine, far
        from being a largely unoccupied wasteland, was a bustling place, home to
        many people whose ancestors had lived there for millennia.

        This ended in 1948 with their forcible expulsion when over 700,000
        indigenous people (about three-quarters of the population) were expelled
        by the armed Zionist militia that later became the Israeli Defense
        Forces (IDF) to make room for the influx of Jews from Europe and create a
        purely Jewish. This event is referred to as the ‘Nakba’
        (that means ‘catastrophe’ in Arabic) and its details are little
        mentioned in the western press, which has developed into an art the
        suppression of inconvenient truths.

        But truth is stubborn and those who seek it can find it. Take the case of Miko Peled.
        He is the son of Mattiyahu ‘Matti’ Peled and Zika Katsnelson-Peled.
        Both his parents came from families who were ardent Zionists, his father
        born in Haifa in 1923 and his mother in Jerusalem in 1926. Matti Peled
        became one of Israel’s top generals in the IDF, fighting in the 1948 and
        1967 wars and at one time was the military governor of the Gaza strip.
        Miko Peled has written a memoir The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (2012)
        Per Miko Peled, an Israeli
        Peace activist
        Israel has been bombing and killing people in Gaza since it
        created the Gaza Strip in the early 1950s. On a regular base, Israel goes in
        and kills civilians in Gaza. This has been going on for six decades. Of course,
        it’s getting worse. The technology is getting better. And the casualty count is
        getting worse. But this is part of a larger issue, a larger problem. And the
        problem is that people equate the Palestinian response to Israeli violence and
        to Israeli aggression as terrorism, instead of realizing that this is an act of
        resistance. The Palestinians have been the subject of oppression and violence
        by Israel from the very beginning that the state of Israel was established.
        This is why we have a Gaza Strip. This is why we have hundreds of thousands of
        refugees in the Gaza Strip and other places. These people were forced out of
        their home as a result of an act of terrorism, which created the state of
        Israel in 1948. These people have been resisting, and they’ve been resisting in
        other places, mostly by nonviolent means. Of course, the more violent, the more
        the armed struggle gets a lot more media, but mostly by nonviolent means. They
        have been part of a brutal oppression for six decades.

        And what we see today is, of course, the result of one straw
        that literally broke the camel’s back, and we see uprising in places that we
        haven’t seen before, like, you know, inside Palestinian communities inside
        Israel. These are Israeli citizens. And Israel planning to go in and kill more
        Palestinians, knowing full well they’re going to be burning more Palestinian
        children, just like the one who was burned by these four or five individuals
        who were not soldiers, but Israeli military has been doing this for decades.
        This is nothing new.

        Miko Peled, you were arrested recently at a protest in the
        West Bank, protesting the occupation. You’re one of a group of Israelis who
        regularly takes part in these kind of solidarity actions. Has the brutal
        killing of Mohammed Khdeir done anything to raise discussion about the
        settlements, about the fact that this occupation is continuing and Palestinians
        are subjected to these types of—this type of brutality every day?

        I think it only has done so in that the foreign press
        is suddenly interested again. But in terms of the discussion on the Palestinian
        side, this is nothing new. This particular brutal case of murder is really
        nothing new. I mean, Israel—what do you think happens when Israel drops tons of
        bombs from the air on Gaza? Children get burned.

        The issue of the settlement is also one of these absurd
        issues that people talk about, knowing full well there can be no change. Israel
        will never stop building cities and towns wherever it likes, everywhere in the
        Middle—everywhere in what Israel considers the land of Israel. And so, this
        whole debate of settlements and no settlements, again, has to be taken in a
        larger issue. Israel has been building settlements on occupied Palestinian land
        since 1948, since the state of Israel was established. You know, the entire
        country is occupied Palestine. And it’s time to wake up and talk about it like
        this. This whole debate about the occupied Palestinian territories being only
        part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
        absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
        who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
        these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
        considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
        Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
        resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
        larger issue here.

        And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
        Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
        become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
        world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
        of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
        them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
        least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
        pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
        my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
        of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
        been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
        resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
        are the people who have to be released.

        The siege on Gaza has to be lifted. If Israel doesn’t
        like the Qassam rockets coming out of Gaza, Israel knows what to do, because
        this is a response to the Israeli occupation. This is the response to the
        Israeli brutal oppression of Palestinians for almost seven decades. So, again,
        it’s important to put this in perspective and not to treat this like it’s an
        isolated issue. And again, Mohammed Omer is 45 minutes away from me, and he has
        no access to clean drinking water. Families don’t know what to do once the
        bombs start falling. They have no shelters. They can’t escape. Israel has
        locked them in this massive prison. And I don’t know what kind of expectation
        there is that the Palestinians would just sit there in Gaza and not respond,
        and not respond with any kind of violence. You know, being as ineffective as
        these Qassam rockets are, at least they’re some expression of anger and some
        desire to be noticed.

          Palestine prior to 48 was under British mandate. That mandate through the League of Nations made room for Israelites in the general area. In 1948 there was an all Palestinian government declared by Egypt that occupied the area. Palestinians had all Palestinian passports. So uprooted by Israel? More like screwed over by Egypt that continues to screw them over.

        • coppersmom

          can’t go a day without rushing into a shelter screaming?? really? did you know the rockets have no guidance systems and thus are not targeting you..Has even a single feather fallen on Tel Aviv???? yet???

          • hue

            ok honestly if rockets are being fired into your town are you going to say “oh well, they dont have guidance systems, i dont mind a few bombs”?

            Just because you live in a little safety bubble doesnt mean you can speak for others who are in actual danger.

            I’m sorry but if anyone is shooting any sort of rocket/missile/bomb within miles of me if not closer I’ll be running to the shelter too.

          • coppersmom

            No, Hue, you utterly miss the point. If glorified bottle rockets which rarely hit anything are falling on my town, I would expect journalists to report this story accurately, not inflate it up into the end of the world, requiring me and my colleagues to race screaming into air raid shelters for the cameras, when nothing has fallen from the sky in my city, Tel Aviv. I would also expect those journalists to note whether or not my city’s government was holding that other city under occupation(see UN),oppressing my every move, controlling what items, including food and medicine I could receive from the outside world..
            As for you assertion that I live in a “safety bubble”, did you pull that from your anus? I am a journalist and lawyer and activist who has received numerous, credible, real death threats for my work. I have had local law enforcement protection for periods of time and I am armed and prepared for that very likely possibility that I”ll have to defend myself.
            That said, why don’t you go run into a shelter in a city where nothing is falling from the sky, not even a feather?You should have to spend a single day as a Palestinian under the oppression of the current genocidal Israeli government.. dodging bombs “made in the USA”. It would give you something to boo hoo hoo about, very quickly.

            In the west and especially in the US, one of the least known elements
            of the story of the Israel-Palestinian conflict is the ugly story of
            how the Palestinians were uprooted from their land and homes leading up
            to and through the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. The heroic
            story of how the Jews, ‘a people without a land’ came to occupy ‘a land
            without a people’, was always based on a false premise. Palestine, far
            from being a largely unoccupied wasteland, was a bustling place, home to
            many people whose ancestors had lived there for millennia.

            This ended in 1948 with their forcible expulsion when over 700,000
            indigenous people (about three-quarters of the population) were expelled
            by the armed Zionist militia that later became the Israeli Defense
            Forces (IDF) to make room for the influx of Jews from Europe and create a
            purely Jewish. This event is referred to as the ‘Nakba’
            (that means ‘catastrophe’ in Arabic) and its details are little
            mentioned in the western press, which has developed into an art the
            suppression of inconvenient truths.

            But truth is stubborn and those who seek it can find it. Take the case of Miko Peled.
            He is the son of Mattiyahu ‘Matti’ Peled and Zika Katsnelson-Peled.
            Both his parents came from families who were ardent Zionists, his father
            born in Haifa in 1923 and his mother in Jerusalem in 1926. Matti Peled
            became one of Israel’s top generals in the IDF, fighting in the 1948 and
            1967 wars and at one time was the military governor of the Gaza strip.
            Miko Peled has written a memoir The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (2012)
            Per Miko Peled, an Israeli
            Peace activist
            Israel has been bombing and killing people in Gaza since it
            created the Gaza Strip in the early 1950s. On a regular base, Israel goes in
            and kills civilians in Gaza. This has been going on for six decades. Of course,
            it’s getting worse. The technology is getting better. And the casualty count is
            getting worse. But this is part of a larger issue, a larger problem. And the
            problem is that people equate the Palestinian response to Israeli violence and
            to Israeli aggression as terrorism, instead of realizing that this is an act of
            resistance. The Palestinians have been the subject of oppression and violence
            by Israel from the very beginning that the state of Israel was established.
            This is why we have a Gaza Strip. This is why we have hundreds of thousands of
            refugees in the Gaza Strip and other places. These people were forced out of
            their home as a result of an act of terrorism, which created the state of
            Israel in 1948. These people have been resisting, and they’ve been resisting in
            other places, mostly by nonviolent means. Of course, the more violent, the more
            the armed struggle gets a lot more media, but mostly by nonviolent means. They
            have been part of a brutal oppression for six decades.

            And what we see today is, of course, the result of one straw
            that literally broke the camel’s back, and we see uprising in places that we
            haven’t seen before, like, you know, inside Palestinian communities inside
            Israel. These are Israeli citizens. And Israel planning to go in and kill more
            Palestinians, knowing full well they’re going to be burning more Palestinian
            children, just like the one who was burned by these four or five individuals
            who were not soldiers, but Israeli military has been doing this for decades.
            This is nothing new.

            Miko Peled, you were arrested recently at a protest in the
            West Bank, protesting the occupation. You’re one of a group of Israelis who
            regularly takes part in these kind of solidarity actions. Has the brutal
            killing of Mohammed Khdeir done anything to raise discussion about the
            settlements, about the fact that this occupation is continuing and Palestinians
            are subjected to these types of—this type of brutality every day?

            I think it only has done so in that the foreign press
            is suddenly interested again. But in terms of the discussion on the Palestinian
            side, this is nothing new. This particular brutal case of murder is really
            nothing new. I mean, Israel—what do you think happens when Israel drops tons of
            bombs from the air on Gaza? Children get burned.

            The issue of the settlement is also one of these absurd
            issues that people talk about, knowing full well there can be no change. Israel
            will never stop building cities and towns wherever it likes, everywhere in the
            Middle—everywhere in what Israel considers the land of Israel. And so, this
            whole debate of settlements and no settlements, again, has to be taken in a
            larger issue. Israel has been building settlements on occupied Palestinian land
            since 1948, since the state of Israel was established. You know, the entire
            country is occupied Palestine. And it’s time to wake up and talk about it like
            this. This whole debate about the occupied Palestinian territories being only
            part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
            absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
            who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
            these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
            considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
            Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
            resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
            larger issue here.

            And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
            Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
            become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
            world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
            of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
            them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
            least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
            pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
            my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
            of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
            been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
            resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
            are the people who have to be released.

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948 “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948 “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba” found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S. President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            Its all right very clear and simple Americans. Don’t let them confuse you. Do your own research. I’m just fortunate to know some of the important families on both sides and have done my research. Do your reserch

            “mowing the grass”

            Or do you prefer slicing off heads like the Arabs do?

            From “Jihadist Ritual Murder and Mutilation at the
            Mall” by Dawn Perlmutter, Front Page magazine (Oct 1, 2013) :

            “If you have any qualms about how to really deal
            with these sadistic, bloodthirsty, terrorists consider that during the four-day
            siege in Kenya’s Westgate shopping Mall al-Shabaab Jihadists raped, tortured,
            beheaded, dismembered, castrated, gouged out eyes, amputated fingers and hung
            hostages on hooks from the roof…They removed balls, eyes, ears, nose. “

            “They get your hand and sharpen it like a pencil
            then they tell you to write your name with the blood. They drive knives inside
            a child’s body…”

            On June 20, 2006 in al-Yusufiyah outside of
            Baghdad, Iraq, the bodies of American soldiers Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, and
            Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, were found mutilated beyond recognition.

            Hamas—and Fatah— is very delicate in their dealings. That’s why they place rocket launchers and armaments in mosques, schools, hospitals, UNRWA and UN locations, etc. letting their men, women, children, and babies get killed while the cowards hide in the concrete tunnels for shelter.

            They are the scum of the earth.

            Drones aren’t rockets? Of course they aren’t but drones are capable of firing munitions. The US has used drones to target and kill several terrorists as well as civilians in many cases. Trying to say a drone isn’t a rocket is pretty derp of you.

            This garbage about “scrap metal rockets” and no guidance systems…well that’s just stupidity. Have you heard of indiscriminate targeting? It is basically just lobbing artillery or missiles with not a care in the world where they land.

            The fact that Hamas rockets haven’t wreaked havoc on Israel is more a testament to the effectiveness of the iron dome system than it is proof of the inadequacy of Hamas rockets. Even if said rockets had a targeting system iron dome would likely be just as effective.

            If iron dome were to fail and a mass of Israelis were to die many of you would look like total hypocrites as you would actually find ways to validate those deaths.

            LOL…have you heard of the Patriot missiles used in Iraq. The US inflated the figures to 90% success rate when in fact it had a 5% success rate. The iron dome is no different. An MIT ballistics professor wrote a paper on why the iron dome is not as effective as people think it is. Why don’t look into it? Something to think about: Previous Hamas rockets fired from Israel in the 1000′s in 08 and 09, without the iron dome, had the same amount of Israeli casualties as with the iron dome in 2012 and 2014…it’s all pure propaganda!

            In the west and especially in the US, one of the least known elements
            of the story of the Israel-Palestinian conflict is the ugly story of
            how the Palestinians were uprooted from their land and homes leading up
            to and through the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. The heroic
            story of how the Jews, ‘a people without a land’ came to occupy ‘a land
            without a people’, was always based on a false premise. Palestine, far
            from being a largely unoccupied wasteland, was a bustling place, home to
            many people whose ancestors had lived there for millennia.

            This ended in 1948 with their forcible expulsion when over 700,000
            indigenous people (about three-quarters of the population) were expelled
            by the armed Zionist militia that later became the Israeli Defense
            Forces (IDF) to make room for the influx of Jews from Europe and create a
            purely Jewish. This event is referred to as the ‘Nakba’
            (that means ‘catastrophe’ in Arabic) and its details are little
            mentioned in the western press, which has developed into an art the
            suppression of inconvenient truths.

            But truth is stubborn and those who seek it can find it. Take the case of Miko Peled.
            He is the son of Mattiyahu ‘Matti’ Peled and Zika Katsnelson-Peled.
            Both his parents came from families who were ardent Zionists, his father
            born in Haifa in 1923 and his mother in Jerusalem in 1926. Matti Peled
            became one of Israel’s top generals in the IDF, fighting in the 1948 and
            1967 wars and at one time was the military governor of the Gaza strip.
            Miko Peled has written a memoir The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (2012)
            Per Miko Peled, an Israeli
            Peace activist
            Israel has been bombing and killing people in Gaza since it
            created the Gaza Strip in the early 1950s. On a regular base, Israel goes in
            and kills civilians in Gaza. This has been going on for six decades. Of course,
            it’s getting worse. The technology is getting better. And the casualty count is
            getting worse. But this is part of a larger issue, a larger problem. And the
            problem is that people equate the Palestinian response to Israeli violence and
            to Israeli aggression as terrorism, instead of realizing that this is an act of
            resistance. The Palestinians have been the subject of oppression and violence
            by Israel from the very beginning that the state of Israel was established.
            This is why we have a Gaza Strip. This is why we have hundreds of thousands of
            refugees in the Gaza Strip and other places. These people were forced out of
            their home as a result of an act of terrorism, which created the state of
            Israel in 1948. These people have been resisting, and they’ve been resisting in
            other places, mostly by nonviolent means. Of course, the more violent, the more
            the armed struggle gets a lot more media, but mostly by nonviolent means. They
            have been part of a brutal oppression for six decades.

            And what we see today is, of course, the result of one straw
            that literally broke the camel’s back, and we see uprising in places that we
            haven’t seen before, like, you know, inside Palestinian communities inside
            Israel. These are Israeli citizens. And Israel planning to go in and kill more
            Palestinians, knowing full well they’re going to be burning more Palestinian
            children, just like the one who was burned by these four or five individuals
            who were not soldiers, but Israeli military has been doing this for decades.
            This is nothing new.

            Miko Peled, you were arrested recently at a protest in the
            West Bank, protesting the occupation. You’re one of a group of Israelis who
            regularly takes part in these kind of solidarity actions. Has the brutal
            killing of Mohammed Khdeir done anything to raise discussion about the
            settlements, about the fact that this occupation is continuing and Palestinians
            are subjected to these types of—this type of brutality every day?

            I think it only has done so in that the foreign press
            is suddenly interested again. But in terms of the discussion on the Palestinian
            side, this is nothing new. This particular brutal case of murder is really
            nothing new. I mean, Israel—what do you think happens when Israel drops tons of
            bombs from the air on Gaza? Children get burned.

            The issue of the settlement is also one of these absurd
            issues that people talk about, knowing full well there can be no change. Israel
            will never stop building cities and towns wherever it likes, everywhere in the
            Middle—everywhere in what Israel considers the land of Israel. And so, this
            whole debate of settlements and no settlements, again, has to be taken in a
            larger issue. Israel has been building settlements on occupied Palestinian land
            since 1948, since the state of Israel was established. You know, the entire
            country is occupied Palestine. And it’s time to wake up and talk about it like
            this. This whole debate about the occupied Palestinian territories being only
            part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
            absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
            who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
            these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
            considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
            Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
            resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
            larger issue here.

            And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
            Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
            become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
            world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
            of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
            them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
            least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
            pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
            my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
            of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
            been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
            resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
            are the people who have to be released.

            The siege on Gaza has to be lifted. If Israel doesn’t
            like the Qassam rockets coming out of Gaza, Israel knows what to do, because
            this is a response to the Israeli occupation. This is the response to the
            Israeli brutal oppression of Palestinians for almost seven decades. So, again,
            it’s important to put this in perspective and not to treat this like it’s an
            isolated issue. And again, Mohammed Omer is 45 minutes away from me, and he has
            no access to clean drinking water. Families don’t know what to do once the
            bombs start falling. They have no shelters. They can’t escape. Israel has
            locked them in this massive prison. And I don’t know what kind of expectation
            there is that the Palestinians would just sit there in Gaza and not respond,
            and not respond with any kind of violence. You know, being as ineffective as
            these Qassam rockets are, at least they’re some expression of anger and some
            desire to be noticed.154

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948 “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948 “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba” found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S. President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            Its all right very clear and simple Americans. Don’t let them confuse you. Do your own research. I’m just fortunate to know some of the important families on both sides and have done my research. Wake up

            rubbish , the arabs (people from arabia) in palestine have the same goals as isis,. israel is on the front line against islamic terror, thank you israel for standing up to the terrorists, the turks prevented the savage palestians with cannon to stop the arabs from butchering the jews, their previous leader yasser arafat wasnt even born in israel, he was born in cairo

It is Palestine that are being ‘Illegally’ occupied remember. And oh lucky them they may have managed to stop a drone from Palestine, lucky them; it’s more than can be said for the Palestinians, have a look at this link of what happened in Gaza when an Israeli drone hit them http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-29074260
            Also don’t forget, it is Israel that receive $7 a day from the US in support, and because of this they will have a darn sight more drones at their disposal than Palestine. And you profess to looking from both sides!!???

            You ignorance knows no bounds.
            950,000 Jews were made homeless, destitute refugees overnight either being kicked out or running for their lives from the terror that erupted in the Arab world, from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco, we the Jews of the Middle east and north Africa outnumbered the Arab refugees from Palestine by almost two to one. Well over 50% of the Jewish population of Israel today comprises of those Jews and their descendants whom were forced out or fled from the Arab world and to a lesser degree from the Islamic world Such as Iran Turkey and Pakistan in 1947. 20% of Israel’s population consists of Arab-Israelis, the rest of the population is comprised of around 30% of those Jews and their descendants who were either born in Europe who survived the Holocaust or Jews coming in from other parts of the World including India, the USA Central and South America etc. etc. Therefore the overall majority are the jews from the Arab and Islamic world, back in their rightful place. Please note that only a small amount of Arabs can trace them selves back into the History of Palestine stretching back 2,000 years ago, the rest of these Arabs are from all over the middle east and north Africa, you can tell by their family Surnames. Since the 1840s jews outnumbered bothe Muslims and Christians in Jerusalem. Also note that ever since the great dispersion of the Jews from Judea by the Romans starting in AD 70, there has always been a Jewish presence in the land.

          • BenLev

            All the talk of “expelled” arabs from Israel. The fact is the Jewish nation has always tried to keep their homeland. The occupying nation flavor of the day kept expelling the Jewish people and populating our homeland with anyone that is not Jewish. There is a excellent new book out that provides 100% backed up facts called “Phantom Nation”.

            I dont believe we are bombing palestine i believe that is all made up by the journalist. The Palestine is just trying to make people feel sorry for them it is not working. It is all a big publicity stunt it is not even happening so why worry about it. i dont hear it are see it.

            God Bless Israel, Here in America we have a funny thing called Fox News.
            No other channel shows the rockets, missiles coming into Israel, But they do show missiles in schools an churches and people as human shields to protect Hamas Human Animals Murdering All Simple!!!!!!!

            yes fox news is a funny thing around the world-more specifically its a joke.

          • Cristian

            Why is fox news a joke? Because they show all that is needed to be shown? I watch both CNN and FOX equally (usually jump from one to the other). While CNN covers only breaking news that are not related to the administration, FOX covers almost anything that happens. Everytime there’s something big (MH 370, Asiana crash in San Francisco, Boston Bombings, Zimmerman’s trial, etc) CNN pounds you with news about that specific event and every hour they have breaking news, while in fact there is just a repeat of whatever they had before. Breaking news only happens after 7pm (AC360, etc). In the same time they should be covering some other important news for americans like (Bengazi, IRS related, etc) and they give 0 air time to those events. So, if you consider yourself fair and equal you should watch CNN and FOX just to understand exactly who’s showing what needs to be shown and who’s trying to cover what needs to be shown.

            The far left make me laugh dude. They believe whatever news fits their narrative and dismiss as lies and propaganda whatever doesn’t. Even if it is impossible to prove wrong. I’m centrist so like to look at things from both angles. Oh and I’ve studied the middle east and Israel particularly for several years and this article is just plain propaganda. Disgusting historical revisionism. And I’m not a Jew, neither do I live in Israel if they think I have a bias.

            Do your research before you open your mouth

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

          • PeatyLaphroaig

            You do know where the UN gets its death toll statistics? That is right, from Palestinians. Absolutely no chance those metrics can be manipulated in the least.

          • efd271

            UN has personnel to aquire information of that sort. Try blowing smoke up some one elses arse.

            Israeli hasbara has been uncovered.

          • PeatyLaphroaig

            UNRWA actually does get ALL its information directly from Palestinian sources, that isn’t some tin-hat bull, that is fact. No hasbara has been uncovered but clearly you’ve been cruising through stormfront.org. Some of the most simple facts to verify and you take what you want to believe with a grain of salt. Sounds like you have a whole lot of smoke blown up your own arse.

          • efd271

            Listen you Israeli Troll….Those UN members that witnessed the death of their comrades need no confirmantion by anyone when they were blown to peices by Israeli munitions…..In a UN school that coordinates were given to Israel 17 times and just hours again before they were hit.

            It was not the Palestinians who provided the evidence that the missile that killed those children on the beach was a MIKA missile and has a camera on its nose so it could be guided to its target. That was the UNRWA investigation.

            Every time you turn your head their is an Isareli talking head reading Hasbara lines to the planet, but in Gaza, Palestine UN members are on the ground and bare witness to all they see and they know how to count. Putz!

          • jongnagy

            Uh…

            How come the Palestinians don’t make use of the concrete tunnels Hamas built to the tune of $90 million?

            How come cowardly Hamas terrorists hide in them but other Palestinians are not allowed in?

            How come they kill each other in “honor killings” at the drop of a word?

            Yes?

            Isarel just spent over 3 billion dollars on miitary expendatures. Hanas spent an estimated 90 million in tunnel construction for miliatry and civilian porposes.

            How do you know who hides in them? Why does not Isarel allow the non combatants out of Gaza? Why does Isarels secretary of Defence wants the Isareli Supreme court to over turn their ruling that the IDF can not use civilian shields any longer? Cowards?

            Honor killings? Is that anything like the Jews in Isarel protesting and threatening a couple for a mix marriage?

            Or, a modern miliartry slaughtering children and women, the handicap with artillary and missiles fired from the safety of miles of distance. But, send in children and civilains to look in tunnels and homes first before entering themselves. Cowards.
            Israel is every bit as bad as any facist regime in history and has got to go.

            UN is criminal by association not declaring Israel committing war crimes, by knowing they are invading Palestine land.
            Is very simple, see the land that Israel should have as per official documents (UNGA181), and see that the land amputated from Palestine, (56% of the old Palestine) for Israel, now take look at the current partition and tell me who is massacring who.

          • Anis

            Logic does not help here. The occupation will have to be legalised by any means for Israel. So that is why no talks will ever succeed. This is a new trend in occupation technology. Vacating occupied land is not on the table. Keep discussing in circles.

            Well fact s support the largest fanatic cult in the present day world committing murder and rape upon other people are arab muslims.

          • Gonzalo

            Facts also support that israhell is breaking a UN resolution (UNGA181), which is no brainer to see israhell is ignoring the land division given by international laws.

            Facts also support that most advisers around Obama are jewish (most likely Zionist AIPAC’s puppets), so that makes us just another puppet.

            And please do not forget what George Washington (a founding father, just in case our government forgot) said “, and avoid attachments and entanglements in foreign affairs,”. Way to go Barack!!!

            if your as stupid as you appear to be I would ask for a refund on that college education you no doubt have. Israel invaded Palestine, then forced them out of specific areas, bought some land from them after making their lives miserable. They invaded in the 60′s and prance around like a 5 year old wanna be bully who always looks up to big brother should anyone actually care to retaliate. How does it feel to be paying for those guided air to ground missiles that blew apart the UN School today? Oh i forgot those bottle rockets and stones must be hurting those in Israel.

            about Obama, remember that in USA, unfortunately, the president is not the most powerful figure, lobbies are, and as everybody knows, most powerful lobbies are Zionist or extreme capitalist, which is the real reason Israel is being protected by USA, there is no human or religious purpose behind (at least on USA side), only money; on the other side, is obvious Israel has it own agenda taking advantage of USA’s hunger for oil money

            A very good assessment.

          • bamalamadingdong

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            Gonzalo. I am a lifetime Independent voter. I voted for Obama, once, and I’m telling you from a middle ground standpoint that CNN and especially MSNBC are the worst when it comes to re-wording stuff and or blatantly lying. I know Fox does it too, but I watch all of these stations to see how they are reporting an issue, and for the past at least 4 yrs those two have taken the cake for dishing out the most one sided BS. Their ratings are the perfect example. If you put too much BS out there people are not going to keep tuning in over serious issues. Even if its along the lines of a specific party. If people want juicy tidbits of half truths or blatant lies all they need to do is get on the Internet and find one of many wackjob sites. Watching the news for that stuff is long gone. Fox continues to squash them overall in the ratings for a reason. They tell it much closer to the truth. Even if that isn’t saying much. Lol.

          • Gonzalo

            Hi there Real Logic.

            I’m also independent, and also voted for Obama since it was a no-brainer considering the options, not because he was good, just less worst. And I know CNN was all the way leaning toward Obama, the same way FOX is unconditional Tea Party supporter, that is easy to see. But at least in CNN has a slightly better intention toward American people as a whole, and not just corporate profit and neo-conservative as Fox is.

            And about the ratings, I hope not to hurt anyone feelings around here, but I’m sure you know that in average, American public (which I am too)

            , is not too aware of serious topics, most can’t put SouthAmerican nor European countries on the map, due to my job, I see that very often.
            Most people really think we are helping Israhell out of the good heart or for a biblical reason israhell has, on the 21st century!!!,
            Most americans don’t know how our monetary system works, and I could go on and on for pages.
            so… you know…, the dumber the public, the easier to lead it, and FOX’s rating, well…., unfortunately says a lot about the general I.Q.
            I have seen many FOX’s commentator running off the camera when they invited someone that were way over their head, is just embarrassing for our culture to have some people like that on TV. And the champion is O’Reilly, he never ran out, but he stop the broadcast or he doesn’t let them talk when he finds himself embarrassed, he is, I believe, one of the most dangerous terrorist of all, along Cheney and Hillary.

            I am not surprised to read your notings on the American public because that is what I guessed but there is a better informed middle class out there that does some politics and is steeply inclined toward Israel. I also think that American President whoever that person may be, has no control over any part of the administration particularly when it comes to international leadership. That is looked after by some power that is working behind the scene. That power definitely has some keys with it and Jews happen to be main beneficiary either through direct presence or by default. Ultimately this group is under a very strong control of Israel / Mossad or whatever. That control is not on American soil. In Israel? Very likely. This group of individuals has money power from armament industry and also very strong control on Research and Development of defence related products in Israel which supplies to America and also some other countries clandestinely. Two nation theory is lying dead in this chamber. You can find many other policy matters in this chamber. The world has one view of the world without any control and this group has another well within its control. I will not be surprised if the recent espionage related disclosures also lie within the ambit of this group. Germany was a target. They all went silent after Merkel issued threats. Downing of Malaysian airlines aircraft in Ukraine could have been crafted by this group for its ultimate benefit to bring Russia to her knees. One possibility can also not be ruled out and that is involvement of American Government through CIA in this group as one of the contributors. In this scenario guessing the main brain behind the scene will be so difficult at the same time the control could not depend on just one single person. If one is killed someone else will take charge. The evil mind will keep churning.

            You need to do more homework

            In the west and especially in the US, one of the least known elements
            of the story of the Israel-Palestinian conflict is the ugly story of
            how the Palestinians were uprooted from their land and homes leading up
            to and through the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. The heroic
            story of how the Jews, ‘a people without a land’ came to occupy ‘a land
            without a people’, was always based on a false premise. Palestine, far
            from being a largely unoccupied wasteland, was a bustling place, home to
            many people whose ancestors had lived there for millennia.

            This ended in 1948 with their forcible expulsion when over 700,000
            indigenous people (about three-quarters of the population) were expelled
            by the armed Zionist militia that later became the Israeli Defense
            Forces (IDF) to make room for the influx of Jews from Europe and create a
            purely Jewish. This event is referred to as the ‘Nakba’
            (that means ‘catastrophe’ in Arabic) and its details are little
            mentioned in the western press, which has developed into an art the
            suppression of inconvenient truths.

            But truth is stubborn and those who seek it can find it. Take the case of Miko Peled.
            He is the son of Mattiyahu ‘Matti’ Peled and Zika Katsnelson-Peled.
            Both his parents came from families who were ardent Zionists, his father
            born in Haifa in 1923 and his mother in Jerusalem in 1926. Matti Peled
            became one of Israel’s top generals in the IDF, fighting in the 1948 and
            1967 wars and at one time was the military governor of the Gaza strip.
            Miko Peled has written a memoir The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (2012)
            Per Miko Peled, an Israeli
            Peace activist
            Israel has been bombing and killing people in Gaza since it
            created the Gaza Strip in the early 1950s. On a regular base, Israel goes in
            and kills civilians in Gaza. This has been going on for six decades. Of course,
            it’s getting worse. The technology is getting better. And the casualty count is
            getting worse. But this is part of a larger issue, a larger problem. And the
            problem is that people equate the Palestinian response to Israeli violence and
            to Israeli aggression as terrorism, instead of realizing that this is an act of
            resistance. The Palestinians have been the subject of oppression and violence
            by Israel from the very beginning that the state of Israel was established.
            This is why we have a Gaza Strip. This is why we have hundreds of thousands of
            refugees in the Gaza Strip and other places. These people were forced out of
            their home as a result of an act of terrorism, which created the state of
            Israel in 1948. These people have been resisting, and they’ve been resisting in
            other places, mostly by nonviolent means. Of course, the more violent, the more
            the armed struggle gets a lot more media, but mostly by nonviolent means. They
            have been part of a brutal oppression for six decades.

            And what we see today is, of course, the result of one straw
            that literally broke the camel’s back, and we see uprising in places that we
            haven’t seen before, like, you know, inside Palestinian communities inside
            Israel. These are Israeli citizens. And Israel planning to go in and kill more
            Palestinians, knowing full well they’re going to be burning more Palestinian
            children, just like the one who was burned by these four or five individuals
            who were not soldiers, but Israeli military has been doing this for decades.
            This is nothing new.

            Miko Peled, you were arrested recently at a protest in the
            West Bank, protesting the occupation. You’re one of a group of Israelis who
            regularly takes part in these kind of solidarity actions. Has the brutal
            killing of Mohammed Khdeir done anything to raise discussion about the
            settlements, about the fact that this occupation is continuing and Palestinians
            are subjected to these types of—this type of brutality every day?

            I think it only has done so in that the foreign press
            is suddenly interested again. But in terms of the discussion on the Palestinian
            side, this is nothing new. This particular brutal case of murder is really
            nothing new. I mean, Israel—what do you think happens when Israel drops tons of
            bombs from the air on Gaza? Children get burned.

            The issue of the settlement is also one of these absurd
            issues that people talk about, knowing full well there can be no change. Israel
            will never stop building cities and towns wherever it likes, everywhere in the
            Middle—everywhere in what Israel considers the land of Israel. And so, this
            whole debate of settlements and no settlements, again, has to be taken in a
            larger issue. Israel has been building settlements on occupied Palestinian land
            since 1948, since the state of Israel was established. You know, the entire
            country is occupied Palestine. And it’s time to wake up and talk about it like
            this. This whole debate about the occupied Palestinian territories being only
            part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
            absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
            who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
            these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
            considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
            Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
            resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
            larger issue here.

            And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
            Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
            become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
            world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
            of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
            them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
            least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
            pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
            my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
            of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
            been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
            resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
            are the people who have to be released.

            The siege on Gaza has to be lifted. If Israel doesn’t
            like the Qassam rockets coming out of Gaza, Israel knows what to do, because
            this is a response to the Israeli occupation. This is the response to the
            Israeli brutal oppression of Palestinians for almost seven decades. So, again,
            it’s important to put this in perspective and not to treat this like it’s an
            isolated issue. And again, Mohammed Omer is 45 minutes away from me, and he has
            no access to clean drinking water. Families don’t know what to do once the
            bombs start falling. They have no shelters. They can’t escape. Israel has
            locked them in this massive prison. And I don’t know what kind of expectation
            there is that the Palestinians would just sit there in Gaza and not respond,
            and not respond with any kind of violence. You know, being as ineffective as
            these Qassam rockets are, at least they’re some expression of anger and some
            desire to be noticed.154

            @coppersmom:disqus: You are doing a good job and I hope you will be able to muster enough support to carry your effort forward. However, to me it looks the fight – whatever its result up to the current pause – is race against time for both the sides. Israel knows it cannot continue this Hitlerism endlessly because their actions are being watched with greater irritation by the world that is refusing to react for the moment but once it gets registered for response at the right moment then Israel will have to wind up from these properties. But before that happens there will be a mighty effort on the part of Israeli occupiers and their American political backers to annihilate the natives completely so that there will be no claimant of land in question. I hope you can imagine the nature of activity that will be – grisly? For the moment their targets are only children so that after a time there will be no youth to fight the battle for independence in Gaza. The land will become their anyway. Tunnels and rockets are in fact the right aid Palestinians can extend to Israel for their total annihilation. Once it becomes Israel there will be no one else to ever talk about Palestine. UN will be asked to formalise the occupation as legal annexation.

            No you miss the point. Israel has shown and proven they will give up land for guaranteed peace. this country has kept that promise to every country that honored the deal. just like the settlements of jews they tore down and pulled their troops out of Gaza. the palestinian did not honor the bargain. FACT know world wide 94% of all lands Israel defeated it’s enemy on and captured has be handed back over to those countries. Israel only retaliates when the palestianan attacks. You are no journalist a true journalist reports the truth and that you will never do because you are a bigot.

            Wake up Steve

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

          • coppersmom

            No, I”d be asking why the Israelis say Hamas is “targeting” anything…since they have no guidance systems, no heat seeking ability.

            Well coopersmom you just outed yourself. You are an attorney and a journalist? Two of the most screwed up things in America today. Hmmm let me ask you a question since you are a mom. You send your kid to school and you have another boy at school threatening your son saying he is going to kill him at every chance he gets. Some days he even acts on it by taking your sons lunch money, verbal abuse some days, physical abuse on others and this continues even though you go to the school board and they tell you that they can do anything. One day you son comes running into the house saying that someone is trying to kill him and that he has a small pocket knife and has already been cut and is bleeding from his hand. Its not life threatening but an attack that leaves you both disturbed and troubled and fearing for your life and your child’s. The door swings open and he tells you after he kills your child you are next. You have a loaded gun and as he attacks your child and starts to stab your child according to your reasoning because its a pocket knife and you have a loaded gun that it isn’t fare. Not everyone can be reasoned with when they openly say time after time they will kill your total race every chance that is given. I understand you are a leftist and claim to have all the answers blah blah blah. Wake up!! Not every opinion is right and not every opinion matter especially when it speaks foolishness. You are better off to just keep quit. Oh wait attorney’s and journalist can’t do that my bad.

          • coppersmom

            I have my son punch the bully in his nuts. I would not have him kill the bully and his family and flatten his house for effect.

            Just curious since Hamas associates with Iran and ISIS are they victims too?

          • coppersmom

            Gee, I thought Iran was providing sophisticated missiles to Hamas in Gaza……What happened to that claim? As far as ISIS, I think the true force behind ISIS isn’t what you’d think.

          • PeatyLaphroaig

            What you should really be asking is why you don’t know what the heck targeting is by definition. Targeting has absolutely nothing to do with guidance systems or heat seeking ability. In its most simple form (for your benefit since you don’t know how to use a dictionary) is ” to select objects or installations to be attacked, taken, or destroyed”

            What Hamas does is just as evil and wrong as anything Israel is accused of being that they are indiscriminately targeting population areas. Had those missiles from Hamas actually been able to penetrate the iron dome defense system and kill masses of Israelis would the song you’re singing be of the same tune? Somehow I could see you justifying those deaths and at no point putting forth any criticism of Hamas.

          • Gonzalo

            Hamas is attacking, killing, whatever you want, yes.
            But have you wonder why? what would you do if your neighbor is encroaching your property?
            I’m not defending them, but people should also look further than what’s happening today, no one should bomb another group of people, but neither systematically invade them.

            for moments I have the same feeling, I have to admit.
            Is just that I’m tired of looking at how blindly & unconditionally we defend israhell and how much they puppeteer our government, and although I don’t have the minimum curiosity of ever visit that part of the world, I can’t avoid to speak about a bit.
            but, your point is very valid, but I guess it would be better let things take its natural course over there without us spending any dime, because for any UN’s action, guess who will pay for it .
            Cheers

          • Bill Beck

            Bullshit. Hamas has never been in constant communication 8 times in a day with the UN trying to protect a refugee shelter where little kids are sleeping only to ignore the UN and purposefully fire not once but 4 high powered missiles from a tank obliterating the shelter killing 8 year olds sleeping.

            Hamas has never attacked the UN there BEEF is clearly with the people building retaurants where there Grandpa use to smoke Sheesha and eat dinner. “HAd they”,lf, But, “masses of Israelis. You are a bulshitter and a stupid one at that. Hamas literally does not have that capability. You can continue to theorize your own corruptible position all you like but for all your hypotheticals (which is all you have, shocking really) it is ISRAEL not HAMAS killing little kids and women. Hamas are not in fantasists they know full well there shitty little rockets wiil not do anything, they are symbolic shots screaming “you will never kill us, we will fight you until we can go home”.

            Hey dumbass you do realize Israelis are 80% RUssian Jews with no genetic connection to Israel. It is a total invasion and occupation blended with starvation and cruelty. AND NO winning a 6 day war against people in the region trying to liberate a peoples land is not some fucking act that hands over the keys to the city.

            To the Israelis I know talk of Christians as “useful idiots” you are not tough men you troll our websites lobby our governments, pay of the worst of criminals. Man the fuck up and leave us alone. Stop taking the 5 billion, stop taking and stealing the best military technology and weapons, fuck of with your lobbies. Who do you think you are? Israel has know lobbied on Iraq, IRAN and SYRIA the last two continued viciously in full opposition to AMerican public opinion.

            You literally lobby us to take our young men to die in there tens of thousands while you invade a little shitty piece of land you have blockaded and starved. You couldn’t even beat Hezbollah so fuck of and take Iran on if it’s the right thing, stop asking our blood to due for you.

          • PeatyLaphroaig

            So if you know that by virtue of lobbing missiles regardless of their effect the people you claim to represent will suffer the most, why the hell do you continue to do it? As it stands the only thing the Palestinian people are getting from Hamas is more and more pain and suffering. Clearly the Hamas approach isn’t working so maybe, just maybe they might consider a different approach. Just a thought.

          • efd271

            You know that Hamas is a Democratically elected government by the people of Gaza?

            They have a right to resist in all it forms their occupation, oppression and ethnic cleansing for nearly 70 years. As, did France, Poland, Russia, Algeria, Ireland, Vietnam etc….and any other people who was subject to occupation. They fire the rockets even though as reported they are not effective in killing anyone or causing great damage. Agreed?

            They are blockaded and have no recourse to strike back but with these rockets. And, these rockets have at a great price to the people of Palestine has brought attention and conssesions from Israel that talking for the past 20 plus years has not.

            Israel on a daily basais kills a Palestinian either in the west bank or Gaza. To attemt to reataliate by lethal means is only natural.

            Israel has squashed repeatedly the Fatah/PA political branch attempts to resolve the issue peacefully. To no avail because the Zionist doctrine and narrative is to take all of Palestine and eliminate its indigenous population.

            This latest Gaza attack is a direct result of the two factions Fatah and Hamas reconciliating, and that may lead to a termination of hostilities, and trump the Zionist mission. The rest is a bloody smoke screen.

            Well, fortunately for you, there is a shelter to run to. Has Hamas bombed the shelter you were in? Several UN schools in Gaza,sheltering civilians, have been bombed by Israel. They say there were weapons stored near the schools or that a rocket was fired “from the vicinity of the school”. Excuse me, but under international law, that school is off limits, it is completely illegal to bomb when you know there are civilians there. And “from the vicinity” could mean several hundred yards away-but they bombed these shelters directly with precision weapons. That, my friend, is a war crime-so is their targeting of hospitals and medical personnel. Israel should be taken to the International Criminal Court. Think on that while you’re in your bomb shelter.

          • Concerned

            While I may not agree with everything in this article, I do believe that Israel is killing off Palestinians as the US killed off the Indians. Israelis can say that this is their land, but if you don’t live somewhere for 2,000 years, then show up and forcibly remove everyone, it’s equivalent to a modern genocide. The US has given Israel the most modern military means to continue this aggression. Primarily because many Jewish leaders in the US give so much money to politicians on both sides of the aisle. This is all about money. All political decisions the US makes come from a monetary basis. I’m a Catholic born in the US, and I think what Israel is doing is absolutely reprehensible. The most conservative figures show a 4 to 1 kill ratio: 4 Palestinians dead for every Israeli killed. As for settlements, can any Israeli please explain how annexing someone’s land forcibly is within the rights of any country. Not only is this happening, but the Israeli government subsidizes these “settlements”.

            So because a rocket isn’t guided there’s no problem? (slapping head) We aren’t talking about bottle rockets here… these things are pushing 12′-15′ and carry kilos of explosives. The insanity is rampant in here!

          • coppersmom

            isn’t your analysis a little premature? Do you know how many Israelis have been killed in the last decade from these rockets? An unguided rocket cannot, by design, target anything. Most of these land in water, or impact nothing of import. Sometimes, rarely they cause damage or even death. They are potent, in a limited sense. On the Israeli side, the munitions have telemetry and targeting ability. They are made in the USA. We give Israel the money to buy them from us. The military industrial complex is delighted. The US weapons, used by Israel to “pinpoint” target Hamas tunnels and ordnance is clearly intentional.They say it is so. 80% of the people in Gaza killed by Israeli attack are civilians and/or children. Have a nice day, my ass.

If you’re a public speaker that must be to a tiny community and if you’re public figure we would be delighted to know your identity, then. My guess is that if you’re an author you sold about 50 books on a specific tiny legal subject to friends and colleagues. This most certainly would not give you any legitimacy to boast around about education. But again, nice dilatory tactic. This is completely besides the point.

            Steven H. You will find that “the majority of people” certainly DO NOT share this opinion. And the narrative of the Secretary of State is fed to is to maintain geostrategic US interests, which, rather stupidly, the Netanyahu gov is threatening by attracting attention to a conflict “the majority of people” find unfair.
            A good indication of this is the ratings on all these posts.

            Of course he does. Politicians aspire to become lobbyists, making them representatives of their own interests, more than ours. Obama was supposed to be the President of change, instead he’s proven to be just another politician and, regardless of color, an inept one at that.

            so, if you agree, then, you know is not thank god they took this position, you should thank American greedy (which, BTW is a sin, right?), that, is why Israel is receiving support from us.
            Besides, when mentioned before “vast majority of people”… well … my friend… I’m sorry, and I have moderate jewish people as friends, but after living/ working in 5 different countries, I can tell you that the only country that hovers Israel is USA, the common feeling toward the jewish stereotype is quite global, and all this is only re-enforcing that stereotype, sorry

            I believe I am as smart as you are and quite possibly much more and that I know my history and the terrible holocaust the Jewish people have suffered. I also believe two wrongs don’t make a right. The holocaust should not be used as a carte Blanche to do whatever the Israeli government wants.

          • bamalamadingdong

            Wake up Same Its much bigger then you can comprehend but really simple

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            1. Gaza has drones. More than two have been shot down in the past two weeks. http://www.jpost.com/Operation-Protective-Edge/Gaza-drone-shot-down-over-Ashdod-362666

            2. If the Israelis have great pinpoint targeting rockets, targeting tunnels as you say, then you admit that there is no intentional killing of civilians (the so-called “war crime” story). Meanwhile, the long range and Qassam rockets from Gaza are meant to kill civilians indiscriminately. This is a war crime by definition of the Rome agreement.
            http://www.icrc.org/ihl/WebART/585-08?OpenDocument

            3. In your answer, you have high expectations of the Israeli defenses (they should be able to protect civilians) and low expectations of Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, another operator of rockets from Gaza to Israel (they should be allowed to shoot indiscriminately at civilians). Why do you not give the same scrutiny to both warring parties?

            4. Hamas could have ended this days ago but chose not to. One can only assume they are not deterred by the casualties in the Gaza strip and wish the offensive to continue. http://time.com/2984308/reports-hamas-armed-wing-rejects-egypts-ceasefire-plan/

          • coppersmom

            No, you miss the obvious. Israel and its prime minister claim that their bombing is done with “pinpoint accuracy” I take them at their word. They are deliberately targeting and killing 80% civilians…therefore they are intentionally(with pinpoint precision) commiting genocide..No rockets from Gaza(none of these rockets can be used to target anything, since they have no guidance capability..see glorified bottle rocket) none ..not even a feather has fallen on Tel Aviv…yet..You also conveniently forget to include the open air prison , controlled by Israel, which is Gaza….so , yes, this is like shooting fish in a barrel, and pretending that it really hurts you. Thinks to social media..the whole world is seeing the truth..many for the first time.. You would want more Americans to see what life is actually like for a Gazan on an average day, wouldn’t you? You wouldn’t…gee, I wonder why

            and about your 4th statement, Israel could have avoid this if they wouldn’t obscenely encroach Palestine the way the did in the first place, and please don’t even think about mentioning the holly Bull S**t about whose these lands belong to, is not valid in the real world

          • Peter Warner

            Really, what incentive to “end this” does Hamas have? To be bullied and lied to once again by Netanyahu the Exterminator? To continue to submit to being cut off from the rest of the world while Israel illegally continues to settle Palestinian land? While Israel continues to rely on US taxpayers – of which I am one, and steadfastly committed to overthrowing the Zionist war criminals running this shithole of a nation — to fund their war crimes and trespass and sedition against the US government? Defenders of Israel should STF up, because the rest of the world has had it with Zionists war criminals.

          • PeatyLaphroaig

            An unguided rocket cannot by design target anything. From the perspective of a naval gunners mate you have absolutely no idea how stupid you sound. IEDs do not have guidance systems and in fact they are more primitive than the missiles Hamas uses yet they tend to be effective. The only reason casualties are so disproportionate isn’t for a lack of trying.

          • Eliminate Jews ASAP

            Shut the fuck up you dumb uneducated idiot. Once all the Jews die we will be a better society so do us a favor murder your family then kill your pathetic cowardly faggot Jewish ass.

          • GinnyLee

            Yes, rockets have fallen in Tel Aviv… and a lot more areas. Ludicrous to deny that Hamas is an all out effort of destruction – drawing destruction on the people in Palestine, as well.

            Further, rockets, bombs, rocks, or firecrackers are NOT anything that anyone wishes to fall on their homes – and all are ‘guided’. Do they fall into the sea? NO.

            Wise up. Remember the “Six Day War” – which is conveniently omitted in this garbage article.

          • coppersmom

            When during this recent “barrage” or any other time, has an Hamas rocket fallen on Tel Aviv?????????search under your creases to find proof..it’ll be a long, sweaty, and fruitless search….as it should be

            Actually, Miss Ginny, instant media is providing the world with a look at things it has never seen before. This , despite your beliefs to the contrary, is not helping Israel. I await your promised proof that “rockets” from Gaza had struck Tel Aviv? Did you just have a disappointing time on google?

            (JNS) – Palestinian terrorists in Gaza continued to fire rockets at
            Israel on Tuesday, barraging the southern and central parts of the
            country.

            The remnants of a rocket hit a home in the Tel Aviv suburb of Yehud, causing significant damage, Israel Hayom reported.

            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            Hahaha u just made me crack up! How about u do your research this land belong to the Jewish nation though I’m not Jewish I know history, and beside don’t back those Isis (Hamas) they will come after u one day, Israel is defending freedom they are the only country that knows how to deal with these Muslims actually in my opinion they need to be much harsher, USA needs to learn from Israel! We need Bibi to teach our beloved Obama a thing or two. The people of America need to have NO mercy on these people THEY don’t want peace they want to turn our country and all the countries of Europe and more into a Muslim world and if that idealism means to behead, hang whatever else nothing will get in their way. So do yourself a favor and stop stop siding with the enemy.

            dearest dim one…there is no “mark” to miss..there is no targeting..once again, perhaps you are just a little unclear..the gaza rockets have no guidance capability. They are lit and shot into the air with the hope that they’ll hit something…but they can’t “aim” towards a god damned thing.

            The Arabs of Palestine never had a ‘sovereign’ control of the land.

            Before the Jews/Israel had anything to do with it, in February 1920, under British control, some 1,500 Palestinians demonstrated in the streets of Jerusalem. Also, the local Arab population of Palestine ransacked the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. The Torat Chaim Yeshiva was raided, and Torah scrolls were torn and thrown on the floor, and the building then set alight. During the next three hours,160 Jews were injured.

            The Muslims or Arabs of Palestine were not”expelled” but fled because of the war – where in 1948 Egypt, Iraq, Transjordan, and Syria, invaded territory in the former British Mandate of Palestine and fought the Israelis. Israel won.

            As always, the Muslims/Arabs were the aggressors – never satisfied to be a mere “part” of a country, they have to have it all! See:The Churchill White Paper of 1922.

            This article is about Israel/Palestine issues. I don’t know why you are ranting about “Jews in America” – which I see as hogwash. Can you name just one of the so-called “Jewish controlled media

            Most of the knowledge that I have gained about Israel – her history, destination, and relationship to America, comes from the Bible and Christian teaching. We love Israel, and consider her history to be our history. And, we always pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

            Your “friend Mitchell” must have no clout with THIS POTUS, as he is always bad-mouthing and disrespecting Israel, and doting on any and all Muslims…. hmmm Your ‘insight’ may be very, very, narrow.

          • flange

            yes, please read the news. including the preponderance of rockets specifically targeting ben gurion airport, leading to temporary FAA flight ban.

          • Cristian

            Rockets without guidance systems mean nothing? Do you think before writing something like that? Nothing was hit on Tel Aviv? Yes, correct. Because of the Iron Dome which took out 2000+ rockets just in the last three weeks. Would you like to live somewhere where any time of the day a rocket can fall close to you (randomly since no guidance is used)?

          • coppersmom

            You don’t control what I think, how I think, or what I write, or what I say on my radio shows. In any event, the endless dramaturgy of air raid sirens and citizens running screaming into the bomb shelters..when nothing , not even a feather has landed on Tel Aviv…is propaganda and should be called out as such. The Iron Dome missile defense system was given by President Obama and the American people to Israel. Did you want us to take it back? be utterly uninvolved in genocide? I’d be delighted.

            LOL……There is some kind of mistake. I agree and favor your comment. However add the asaults on Gaza by the Israelis in 1954, 08-09, 2012 as genocide progroms.

            Israel disporportionate response is part of their tactic of ethnic cleansing, and the use of human sheild accusations as an excuse is a defense to appease the world.

            So you are saying that because the rocket is unguided it makes it Ok? You are a fucking dumbass. Hamas fires those rockets at CITIES! With the INTENTION of killing civilians. At least Israel only targets militants and not hospitals and schools like you gaza supporting dogs do. Maybe Israel should fire and “unguided” chemical warhead at gaza and exterminate those parasites while they still can. Muslims only preach hate and intolerance towards anyone who isn’t Muslim. I have no sympathy for them. The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim.

          Oh really? For Milennia eh? That’s total bullshit lady. You’re full of it too. You know, it wasn’t JUST the Palestinians of today(which don’t exist truly, they are nationals from other countries). One fact you’re conveniently overlooking is that Jews lived there too…Yep, JEWS lived in Palestine right alongside their muslim pals and they got along fine by the way. But when I say lived I mean in a couple small hamlets. This bustling city crap you spew is a total lie. It didn’t exist. If you don’t believe me, read Samuel Clements account of his visit to that land in the 1800′s. Read it…I dare you. His account wasn’t of some bustling metropolis. It was of a deserted land with sparse villages, desolate was a word he used. So don’t go around spreading your damn liberal lies. So what, do you just take peoples words as gospel? Where did you get your lies? Palestinian schoolbooks? The bountiful, beautiful and pristine land that is Israel today got that way by the Jews methods of land reclamation. They worked their tales off and made that land a paradise in the desert. Something your Palestinian buddies never did in the alleged millenniums that they lived there (alongside the jews to boot). Don’t you study history? Did you ever hear about the crusades? The fourth crusade was made up of killers, rapists and all manner of criminals who were freed and given an indulgence if they fought and won back the holy land. When they sacked Jerusalem, they killed everything inside…everything, Jews, Christians, and Muslims together. They didn’t understand why the three groups were living together in harmony. It’s only the politics of today, the politics of divisiveness that has turned it into Us v Them. Take a look at an open book, you might learn something.

            If I were Jewish, I would feel ashamed if some anger-personality-disorder-retarded as you, take the word for me. I have many Jewish friends, and they disagree big time with your statement

            I wonder if Israel could do what they did, without help from USA, don’t you ever forget that US tax payers paid (mostly via defense) for a big part of your “paradise in the desert”
            I wish you the best

            Israel’s policies ARE ALL ABOUT JEW/ZIONIST 2000 YEAR OLD QUEST OF PLANET EARTH…READ THEIR FILTHY TALMUD!!! forget the controlled mass media…they own it…the Zionist part of jews makes up their control center…
            What if China came to America and gave the Indians back “their” land…the jews lost (because of their Zionist filth) every land they have been in…no nation on planet earth want their filth…even many jews from within their on ranks are beginning to question their Zionist movement…..are these beast ever going to be smart enough to understand that Zionist USE each other to support their 2000 year old quest…after they have use all other other non jews….these people who support their purpose are all sick…wake up people wake up….

            but I do notice a big difference coming from Zionist people ( if I can call them that) when it comes to acceptance to other human beings, compared to other religions. Zionists are the most racist of all.

          • mahdionnet

            “… you might learn something”! I see, like how to talk to others?
            I don’t blame you, it’s the way zionism works. “we are God-chosen”,”others are our servants and slaves” and etc.

            Don’t talk about Jews like that, please. All of us know it’s not a matter of being Jewish or from other religions but the matter of humanity and zionism. There are lots of Jews living around the world in their homes and homeland and are angry for defaming “Jewish” by killing innocent people in the name of “Jewish”.

            So you admit that Palestinians (Jews, Muslims Christants and etc.) lived there. In peace and “harmony”. when? “BEFORE israel”. The Palestine is the land of religions. Christianity and Jewish has deep roots there and Muslims’ holy Mosque is there and they like it much because other holy religions “Christianity and Jewish” has roots there. But now! Just zionists can freely visit “Al-Qods mosque”.

            So if people live in small villages of their homeland, they can’t consider it their homeland and others have the right to occupy their home for the sake of building a “paradise”?
            Who asked zionists to build a paradise for them? However as far as I remember, you, zionists never build anything for Palestinians. you just kill them, siege them and ruin their buildings. So you haven’t build their cities. It shows that with or without you zionists, Palestine would develop. To be honest it would develop more and better without you and your wars.

            We don’t understand zionism so we can’t talk like you but if you insist we can speak more clearly. zionism can be called with more understandable names like Racism, Neonaziism, Collonialism, and etc.

            All God believers and talking in general whoever has humanity hopes that one day (very soon) all the ideology of zionism, racism, neonazism, etc. and it’s suporters will fade to have a peaceful world again.

            Do you know anything? Really, I’ve been reading your propaganda and find that nothing that you say can be backed up! When Israel turned Gaza over to the so called Palestinians, There were factories and green houses and homes already built there! The Palestinians trashed it all! They could have had it a lot better but just the fact that these things were built by the Jewish people in their mind they had to destroy it rather than benefit from it! There is nothing you can do for a people that want to be idiots! They elected a terrorist group for their government
            Iran supplies them with rockets bought and paid for by the U.S. financial aid
            that was meant for feeding their people and building homes!
            There were shipments of concrete from Egypt to build homes and not one single home was built! Instead they built bunkers and tunnels to hide their missiles and
            terrorize Israel! Keep spewing your misinformed hatred!

          • Gonzalo

            With all due respect, you show signs of the decease provoked by watching (even small doses) Fox News.

            Israel turned Gaza over ?????? by official documents (not the holly BS), Israel have a land today thanks to Palestine and the U.N. puppets.

            Israel is blocking Palestine in ways that makes impossible for them to develop, for the 2014 World Cup they even blocked a few palestinian players from traveling to Brazil!!!!

            FYI, since Israel was created (by forcing Palestine to yield lands), U.S. has given $121Bn, $3.1Bn last year (US tax payers are giving away 20% of the total AID budget to Israel only), so… when it comes to received financial aid, I guess you have to get information, read independent news channel, not the corporate ones, these are owned by the same ones eating the dough.
            And also, it seems that you guys immediately accuse of “haters” anyone who says an inconvenient truth, another Foxish mind set

            I see. “Terrorist government”?eh? How many Wars have this government made?(while israel has had a war less than each 5 year)How many lands has this government attacked and captured? Which people has it has put under siege?(Gaza hasn’t received food, medicines and etc for a long time specially now that’s under attack) how many leaders, scientists and etc, has it assassinated?(while israel admits that it has assassinated innocent people in many countries like Iran – as you mentioned – Lebanon,Libya and etc. ) how many prisoners has it from other people than its own?(while israel’s prisons are full of Palestinians from all ages)

            You know! the world has different definition about terrorism than you. They don’t call “defending from homeland” and “fight for freedom of their people” terrorism. Look how many rallies and protests are being hold around the world against israel? I know in all your, zionists’, idea whole the world are idiots! Don’t you? Of course most of the governments support israel, but how much of the world’s people agree with zionism? All this happen while the major part of the media, BBC CNN and etc, are on israel’s service.
            zionists can kill people, siege them, assassinate their government and even children and women but they can’t fool the world any longer and they can’t kill the ideology of protecting their homeland. Actually it’s now the matter of “Hope of Freedom” and they can’t kill this hope.

            Actually, Jews have been there for roughly 3500 years. They have been fighting with the Ishmaelites (Arabs/Persians) forever.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishmael ( … This is the account of Ishmael from Genesis Chapters 16, 17, 21, 25 describes the naming of Ishmael, and Yahweh’s promise to Hagar concerning Ishmael and his descendants. This occurred at the well of Beer-lahai-roi, located in the desert region between Abraham’s settlement and Shur. Hagar fled here after Sarai dealt harshly with her for showing contempt for her mistress following her having become pregnant. Here, Hagar encountered an angel of Yahweh who instructed her to return and be submissive to Sarai so that she could have her child there. The blessing that this child’s father was promised was that Abraham’s descendants would be as numerous as the dust of the earth. However, the promise would be to a son of Sarai; yet God would make of this child a great nation, who would be named Ishmael, because he was of the seed of Abraham. When Ishmael was born, Abraham was 86 years old.)

          • Gonzalo

            I don’t agree with the comment (nor nickname) from “F..a Jew”, but yours is even worst, “God chosen”??? really? do you know we are living the 21st century?

            God is saving the Jews wake up!!!! Ur god neglected u long ago but the Jews, god is on their side give up man u ppl weren’t the chosen ones the Jews are don’t be haters learn to love them and respect them because soon it will be clear to all of us, I have no problem giving over all my tax money to Israel as long as I know that they will be taking care of Hamas and all the terror groups… And by the way lets not forget September 11, ok and the Boston bombing….

          • Gonzalo

            God saving the Jews?? really? is he trying to make it up for closing his eyes during the holocaust?
            Is USA saving their asses, not god, we need Israel standing, so we can have military bases there and control the oil, you retarded
            and BTW as well, I never forget 9/11 because exactly there is when I realized what the Zionist lobby is capable of; about Boston bombing, can’t opine much, all I know is Russians warned us and our “excellent” staff let it happened, and with perfect timing to distract people from the North Korea crisis we had a that time, but must be coincidence of course!! LOL
            hey cool-aid guy, why don’t you go there if Israel is so important to you? hopefully you can catch a Palestinian drone with your very own mouth and save another Zionist backyard

All they know is to kill if u feel so bad why don’t U go help your fellow ppl in Syria are u watching whats going on in Iraq beheading man ,women ,guys men that’s insane MAAn!!

            what is the entire world for you? FOX, CNN, MSNBC & Israel’s news? open a new thing called Google, is fantastic, you should try it; and look for independent media, from many countries, then we talk about what the actual majority of countries think about who is the terrorist.
            Look for UN resolution (A/HRC/S-21/L.1), the only country that is trying to cover up Israel’s war crimes is “the best government money can buy”, not even the NATO allies voted in favor of Israel, they abstained, shameful day for USA embarrassing itself standing on the devil’s side
            unfortunately for the good jewish people I know, this Zionist regime ruling Israel, is just worsening their already globally attached stereotype

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

            Seriously, resorting to this shit? What Israel is doing is an atrocity, what you’re writing is a disgrace — Direct your hate at the Israeli government, not the Jewish faith or people. The religion is not the issue, it’s the fucking people using religion as an excuse to dehumanise and massacre people (the very same thing your proposing to happen to all Jews, how are you any better?) and that is not what all ‘Jews’ are doing. Your attitude is as awful as Netanyahu’s. Get your anti-semitic bs out of this cause; it’s not helping.

          • From Iran

            I’m an Iranian. A muslim. But before those, I’m a human.
            killing innocent people is wrong. Hitler was a murderer. As are israel’s government and military. Not all jews are zionists. And Zionists are doing this genocide. Its horrible. Its a shame for Zions. A shame for US government. A shame for European governments. A shame for all who support israel. They showed that no human lives in White house. No human is in European governments. And UN is controlled by this non-human governments. Its a shame for all of the world.

          • iranian

            iranian people have no interest in destroying israel and even government of iran has no interest too because the only enemy of shite are sunnite muslims

            this is a lie that israel government spread for covering his actions

            even the jews that want to go to israel are not so bad (zionist)

            jews are inteligent, but going to a land and forcing the people there out is wrong.
            before 1967 there were two state there palestine and israel
            now israel is occupying the palestine territory

            I agree they are the most hated race on earth eliminating them would be what’s right for the world. We should have public torchure chambers and put these leeches in them one by one while the planet celebrates. A world wide burn all the Jews carnival. I am sure if we start an indigogo fund we can raise enough to build the chambers in a matter of minutes. We are obligated to murder them all. Then we can use Israel as a place to put all the global waste. At least Israel would smell better. The world needs to unite and eliminate all Jews.

            as per some other Zionist in the blog, it is my understanding that Zionists are very proud of being a “pure” race, if that’s not inbred…. then…. you are smoking something really strong
            I know Zionists here in USA that, in the first place, they don’t mix with other “races” (because they are too good for that, royal blood BS) and sometimes they don’t even shake hands with other people, what is more racist-inbred than that??

            … and as I mentioned in a different post, don’t ever forget that Zionist, nowadays, are not living because of the grace of God, but by the grace of USA’s tax payers, so… I think is time for them to re-think what they believe
            I wish you the best

          about 800 thousand arabs were expelled from what is today Israel in 1948. that’s the same amount of jewish refugees who were forcibly kicked out of neighboring arab lands and sent to israel. there is nothing secret about that population transfer.

        • saveus

          It was Israels in the first place when you have a war you take a plunder the area it becomes yours. Israel won it is there land. i would have killed every Palestinian a the time of victory by israel. They just went through being almost killed off by Hitler did not see the sorry ass palestines coming to anyones rescue. Israel needs to take the Palestines out once and for all and give Gods land back to the chosen people as the Bible says and if you dont believe that dumbass why don’t you go try and take it and see what happens to you. You will wake up in the flames of hell were you will spend eternity with your burnt up seven whores that you have been promised.

          • Gonzalo

            during the last centuries, which determined the legal statehoods and countries’ boundaries all over the world, Israel never had land; FYI, the holly BS/fairy tale is not valid, it doesn’t give any legality to the myth that Israel ever had a land on its own.

            the UN/US lobbies gave Israel land in 1948, not god

            and the purpose is not to protect the anyone, only to have military bases to control the oil sitting on middle east

            You FOOL

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

        • GinnyLee

          After the Six Day War, Israel now ruled more than three-quarters of a million Palestinians —
          most of whom were hostile to the government. Nevertheless, more than
          9,000 Palestinian families were reunited in 1967. Ultimately, more than
          60,000 Palestinians were allowed to return.(25)

          In November 1967, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution
          242, which established a formula for Arab-Israeli peace whereby Israel
          would withdraw from territories occupied in the war in exchange for
          peace with its neighbors. This resolution has served as the basis for
          peace negotiations from that time on.

          Israel’s leaders fully expected to negotiate a peace agreement with
          their neighbors that would involve some territorial compromise.
          Therefore, instead of annexing the West Bank, a military administration
          was created. No occupation is pleasant for the inhabitants, but the
          Israeli authorities did try to minimize the impact on the population.
          Don Peretz, a frequent writer on the situation of Arabs in Israel and a
          sharp critic of the Israeli government, visited the West Bank shortly
          after the Israeli troops had taken over. He found they were trying to
          restore normal life and prevent any incidents that might encourage the
          Arabs to leave their homes.(26)

          Except for the requirement that school texts in the territories be
          purged of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic language, the authorities tried
          not to interfere with the inhabitants. They did provide economic
          assistance; for example, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were moved from
          camps to new homes. This stimulated protests from Egypt, which had done
          nothing for the refugees when it controlled the area.

          Arabs were given freedom of movement. They were allowed to travel to and
          from Jordan. In 1972, elections were held in the West Bank. Women and
          non-landowners, unable to participate under Jordanian rule, were now
          permitted to vote.

          East Jerusalem Arabs were given the option of retaining Jordanian
          citizenship or acquiring Israeli citizenship. They were recognized as
          residents of united Jerusalem and given the right to vote and run for
          the city council. Also, Islamic holy places were put in the care of a
          Muslim Council. Despite the Temple Mount’s significance in Jewish
          history, Jews were barred from conducting prayers there.

        • Carson

          Actually Margarita, if you do your homework, you’ll see that the Palestinian Arabs were told to evacuate their homes ‘temporarily’ by the other Arab/Muslim nations in 1948. The other Arab countries told them to leave the urban areas in order to make way for the Arab armies to ‘push the zionist Jews into the sea’ and conquer Israel. That obviously failed, and ever since then the Palestinian leadership has spun a narrative of the Jews pushing people out of their homes, which was not entirely accurate. This has been the ‘victim card’ that groups like Hamas and the PA have been using ever since. It is true that once the state of Israel was formed ( out of the British Empire ) that many Arabs living in the region now referred to as Palestine and Israel, did decide to leave the area and migrate to other Arab countries. This was unfortunate, but nowhere near the ‘ugly uprooting’ that you describe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battleground:_Fact_and_Fantasy_in_Palestine

          • Fred

            Yea. They all “decided” to leave and live happily ever after. Keep telling yourself that. And keep telling yourself that Israel hasn’t done anything wrong.

          • Carson

            Never said that, sir. I only drew attention to the fact that the main initial displacement was encouraged by their own Arab ‘brethren’ who have since completely abandoned them and now treat them like the pariahs of the Arab world. I know it’s hard to be truly objective when we see the suffering going on in Gaza, but we have to try to be logical about all this.

Never this is a command from God they cannot have anymore nothing not another inch.

          You are wrong , after the death of king Solomon (928), his kingdom was divided amongst his two sons. One son kept the name Judea, but the other son changeed Samara to ‘Israel’. Assyrian destroyed the kingdom of Israel in 721 BC. Kingdom of Judah was destroyed by Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC, who took over 25,000 Israelites as slaves to Babylon and demolished the Temple of Solomon. Persians conquered Babylonia in 539 BC and allowed Israelites to return and construct a new temple. In 63 BC, Palestine was incorporated into the Roman Empire. Roman Emperor Titus demolished the second temple in 70 CE. During 330-638 CE, Palestine came under Christian Byzantine rule. Islam’s second Khalifa Omar ibn al-Khattaab took control of Jerusalem and ended the Byzantine rule in 638 CE. Palestine remained under the rule of Muslim Umayyad Khalifas in Damascus, who constructed the Dome of the Rock (‘Abd al-Malik, 685-705) and Al-Aqsa in its current shape (al-Walid, 705-715). From 750-1258 CE, Palestine was administered from Baghdad by Muslim Abbasid Khalifas. The Mamluks succeeded the Ayyubis in 1260 CE. Palestine was incorporated into the Ottoman state and administered from Istanbul from 1516-1917 CE.
          The Zionist Jews have coined similar lie about their “Holy Wailing Wall”.

          They are killing innocent people not Israel. They start war and want war with everyone. They don’t want anyone to be free or have a choice.

        • Tom Bradford

          All I can tell you it will never happen palestine is all Palestine will ever be. As long as they desire the total destruction of Israelthen they will be nothing more than terriosts.. That is not me that is the world saying it. i could not imagine the horriable life these poor individuals must have to live through but they made there on bed now they must sleep in it. The United states is doing the same way we will shorltly be in the same condition for we have also lost out first love which is Jesus. You can not live a life worshipping false Gods for there is only one God it is not allajah so keep believing that and you will never have peace not from manking but from the spirtual world which the Palestines have played with like it is a game. The torture for them will only get worst as the antichrist will come on the schene to total mess up the palestinians promissing things that will never happen but they are dumb and illeterat through years of no schol and no communication unless it is by word of mouth they will be totally deceived and there country will be destroyed forever. The only thing in this world that can save the Palestinians which wont happen for the Bible says it wont would be to change and bow down and accept Jesus as the Lord and savior and when they did that there whole world would change. the evil within will not let it happen so to talk about it is only a fairy tale. The Palestians have not been treated nearly as bad as the Jeews you mid friend need to read history and see what and who in this world has been persecuted for 1000′s of years. Get informed and then speak on forums to talk about something in the last 100 years is not history.

          I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948 “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948 “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba” found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

          On the other side of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Israel_Public_Affairs_Committee.

          My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S. President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

          So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the Israel and Palestine story.

          I side with the Palestinian people and know they got screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

          Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the Mitchell family and AIPAC.

          Its all right very clear and simple Americans. Don’t let them confuse you. Do your own research. I’m just fortunate to know some of the important families on both sides and have done my research.

          The Arab countries ethnically cleansed all Jews from their countries. Far more Jews were ethnically cleansed from Arab-occupied countries than Arabs left Israel.

        • Shane Goguen

          I am a native american and “didnt have a country before europians got here” if we had rockets we would have used them believe me. Under Geneva an occupied people have every right to use any force they choose. Israel only listens to the UN when they choose to. They lost there right to be legitimate when they started to ignore the world that birthed them. Makes me sick that they feel they can colonize because the “angry sky daddy” says so. They turn a war for land into a religious war and spin spin spin. The UN needs to deal with the monster they have created. By the way dont even bring up the holocaust as in the usual defense. It is a drop in the bucket compaired to what we have been through and yet we have come to resolution with our neighbours, you have no excuse!

      • Sam

        Typical Israeli subterfuge and dishonesty. Ok don’t call it Palestine then, but it was land predominantly owned and populated by indiginous Arabs, Judea, Samari etc.is that better…fucktard. Remember Israel, also, did not have a land before 1947, there was never an Israel either. Israel has been given a land to live and has behaved not unlike the brutes who almost wiped them out in WWII. If you can’t see that ultimately that will make Israel pay a very heavy price indeed you are a fool sir

        • Scott

          You’re the fool, no, worse, you’re a useful idiot with enough knowledge to be dangerous. Israel behaved how? Was it Israel that attacked Jordan, Egypt, Iran, and all the other defeated countries in the six day war? How about Yom Kippur? Where the hell do you get your facts? I’d like to know because without a bias I read this stuff at the library when I was younger and a student. How can you scapegoat Israel when it’s pretty fucking obvious who the real aggressor is you fucking idiot. Heavy price? Man you really are a dolt. The Jews have been paying everyone’s price since before the middle ages. The europeans blamed them for the black plague. Hitler killed them off. What more do you want to see until it’s ok for them to say NO MORE!!! and start fighting back against a world that has been victimizing them for thousands of years. So fuck your stupid ideas. Go get a fifth grade education, that’s about when I learned this stuff. How can a person be so illinformed? What a sorry example of the decline of an educational system. sad.

            Ever heard of the Suez Crisis 1956?
            Israel, UK & France attacking Egypt. Ben Gurion declaring to the Knesset , (7 Nov. 1956) the 1949 armistice agreement with Egypt was dead and buried. Conquest for land again.

            And yes. Israel did launch a war on their Arab neighbour in 1967.

            The perfect time for Israel as the Egyptian Army and economy was devastated by Egypt’s involvement in the Yemen civil War.

            70,000 Egyptian soldiers with the best equipment available far, far away in Yemen with no chance of return before the fighting was over.

            Michael Oren (former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S) wrote that Egypt’s military adventure in Yemen was so disastrous that “the imminent Vietnam War could easily have been dubbed America’s Yemen.”

            And then we have the Israeli nukes… Were they not ready by 1967. Nice ace to have up the leave if things went bad.

            “start fighting back against world…”!!!

            I saw your
            literature! which is a great way to know how zionists’ way of thinking
            about and showing respect to the rest of the world. but I’d like to
            reply your POLITE words, for others to be informed more
            “… israel was given a land to live …”;”Jews were blamed … Hitler killed them …”
            Although
            I know that real Jews are ashamed of israel and israel is not Jews land
            but zionists’, however lets think you’re right; why poor people
            (Muslims, Jews, Samaritans, etc.) of Palestine should pay the price? why
            that land to be given to israel wasn’t like … Germany that killed
            Jews? (However there are lots of mysterious questions about
            holocaust-like why it’s abandoned in many countries to research and talk
            about its historical facts?)
            and about the six day war, what
            happened before this war? well, a fully equipped military of zionists
            attacked their neighbour, occupied it and in their amazement powerful
            countries supported them!!! Had not they the right to be worried when
            zionists were talking about “the great land of zion … from Nile to
            Euphrates” while no international community nor powerful countries were
            going to stop them?

            Since you are Talking about facts i want acknowledge you with it. The Federal Reserve is owned by Free Masons (Jews) while in every other nation or country the STATE BANK of that country is under Government. If want to be funded for your independent activities the funding party can easily manipulate you in such case the Free Masons are manipulating the US Government to hold war against Middle East in exchange of Funds and profits. Profit in sense of Oil they get from SAUDI ARABIA after King SHAH FAISAL was assassinated by his cousin under the supervision of CIA because he arose against Zionists (so-called Israel). USA also threatened Him by stating that they will destroy the oil fields(THE 1973 ENERGY CRISES in USA) main reason of his Assassination. (9/11) was not Taliban’s it was the Government conspiracy. How can US air-force allow unauthorized air craft to enter in their domain and The world trade center Comes down like it was Demolished not attack because it was demolish by bomb fitted at the basement so that they can write the name terrorist with the countries Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Lebanon, Seriya. Why they don’t call war upon Egypt because they are the alleys with ISRAEL. People call MUSLIMS Terrorist. If saving brothers sisters and children means Terrorist then we are proud of it.

          Well before you blame you should start looking at the evidence.

          I’m an Israeli who was a medic in the army and I helped a few dozen of the Palestinians who cursed me and spit at my face as I was sewing their wounds.

          All you read in this article is a huge lie and I encourage you to look for the answers yourself(look for Gilad Shahar, he was one of the youth who were murdered)since you won’t believe me cause we Jews “Always lie right?”.
          As for who was in Israel first.
          The first evidence for Judaism Is dated around the year 1000 BC.
          By the invasion of the Roman empire, Judaism was a well established in Israel.
          As a result the Romans who adapted some of our beliefs and added some of their own and than came along Christianity in 0 AD
          Islam rose only in 600 AD, by this time Jews were well established in what we now call Israel and Christianity was well established in the rest of the world.
          By the way I only talking about historical evidence and no “religious” evidence since I am not much of a believer.
          if you want more explanation about the situation in Israel I would love to elaborate but since I’m not sure you will even read this than I leave it for now but if you want to hear I would love to explain.
          please know the facts before you talk and don’t act mindlessly cause we all are humans and we all are better than this aren’t we?

        No they were part of the Ottoman empire. How does that not matter!? they still have age old ties to the land. They were de facto living there. And through deceit and crime, the Zionists managed to create Israel. Israel has no reason to exist!

            Those Fake Jew invaders need to get the HELL out of that land. I’ve been reading these comments and it appears that some need to get off the crazy train, using the Bible as a historical document ( which it is NOT) to justify invading and killing occupants and stealing their land. That’s how you people have been and will always be. The only indigenous people in black africa are black people, and in fact they are the “chosen people” that the Bible talks about. After all, that Bible is copied from ancient Kemet …black people. You people used to make me sick with the lies, but now I just find it humorous. The truth hurts, I guess. White folk originating in Africa… Yeah..RIGHt! White Jews are from the Caucus Mountains…cave people. Do some DNA testing. OH, it’s already done:In “The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses,” published in December in the online journal Genome Biology and Evolution, Elhaik says he has proved that Ashkenazi Jews’ roots lie in the Caucasus — a region at the border of Europe and Asia that lies between the Black and Caspian seas — not in the Middle East. They are descendants, he argues, of the Khazars, a Turkic people who lived in one of the largest medieval states in Eurasia and then migrated to Eastern Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries. Ashkenazi genes, Elhaik added, are far more heterogeneous than Ostrer and other proponents of the Rhineland Hypothesis believe. Elhaik did find a Middle Eastern genetic marker in DNA from Jews, but, he says, it could be from Iran, not ancient Judea.larions. Do some DNA testing please. Farrakan was RIGHT! …;0 Dark Moon… All of you invaders need to GTFO1

          The Israelis were there before the pedophile priest and lived there as subjects of the Ottoman Empire along with the arab peoples and got along fine. So what’s your point. There is no such thing as a Palestinian. The jews who lived there were called Palestinians by the British troops they served with during WWI (getting tired of teaching the mindless, history)

            That’s exactly right. They were Palestinian Arabs and Palestinian Jews, and it was the Palestinian Arabs who started the civil war which caused the state of Israel to happen. They should blame themselves for creating the state they hate, and displacing themselves for it.

            Where are all the other Arab countries? Why haven’t they given them a bung load of land and named it Palestine? What a bunch of BS these terrorist supporters like to spread. It’s long past the point of insanity.

        Right. Yeah they didn’t have a country and they weren’t called Palestinians or at least they weren’t the only ones, jews were also called Palestinians during WWI where they served honorably against tyranny. You see, people are becoming more and more ignorant of history because they live in these countries that are knee-jerk anti semites. They, like Europeans, Russians and just about everyone else, demonize jews. That’s all this article is, a rendering of the facts to support a genocidal rage instilled in them by their racists teachers. Did I mention that the Jews who lived in Palestine were the first Palestinians… People just can’t grasp that fact. The “Palestinians” of today are actually Jordanians, Syrians, and other nationals that their host countries didn’t allow to be repatriated after the six days war. They were caught behind the lines and then served as a political football from then on in, a convenient scapegoat for the arabs. Now they’re so lost they don’t even know who they are,it’s sad they’ve been so used but it isn’t Israel that did that, it was their Muslim “brothers”.

          at least their society fabric makes sense and stronger than Israeli society which consists of over 16 ethnic groups. Honestly when you walk in the streets of any Israeli town you could easily figure how fake the Zionism myth is, people live there as if they’re waiting for something to happen to wake them up from their sweet dreams. They all know they live on other people’s land and that their state was built on the skulls of its original inhabitants.

      • svivog

        you are so right. the article is almost all false–the reason I say “almost all” is because I read only a few points when I realized it was so poorly written and not actually a legit article, so I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt that it might have one or two actual solid truths to it.

        I’m sorry that our world has people in it such as the Palestinians who only want to kill others. People don’t seem to understand that the Palestinians use their OWN civilians as human shields. They take pride when their own children want to be suicide bombers when they grow up. It’s such a sad world we live in.

        The only thing the people of Israel are doing is defending themselves against people trying to obliterate their country. The thing is, Israel doesn’t want to kill anyone. They just want peace.

        If the Palestinians just stopped hating the Jewish people for being Jewish and living in Israel–the land that was DECLARED to be their land–there wouldn’t be any killing at all.

        It’s just such a shame that the Palestinians will never stop hating Israel.
        I’m sorry your country is in such a bad place. I only hope for the best for you. Good luck, friend.

        that doesn’t means Israelis can do as they please, as part of a international community -if that doesn’t bother you- Israel should honor the treaties as any other.
        Is sad to see that, the lesson learned after being the victim of such horrible event as the holocaust, was to become another Adolf, instead of being a helping factor when it comes to respect for human life.
        For the record, I have many Israelis friends whose are extremely against all what Israel is doing to Palestine, but it seems like Israel has another Fox news over there doing a hell of a job washing people’s brains.
        I wish life & the best for Israelis & palestinians

          We wouldn’t have to use it if Hamas would just stop sending rockets at our civilians… And thw blind world need to open their eyes and see who the terrist are September 11, was forgotten?? The Boston bombing forgotten common Israel is fighting the same terror open your eyes they don’t only want the take over Israel they want to wipe out the Christians and the entire western countries wake up!!!!!

            I live in Cambridge. I wouldn’t use the Boston Bombing as an appeal to emotion. It was not committed by the accused. I have personal knowledge and physical evidence that the government had foreknowledge.

            I was on the Green Line 2 stops from Copley Square. The evacuated the trains and station 5 minutes before the bomb went off. I directly asked an MBTA police why the evac. He said there is a bomb threat. 5 MINUTES BEFORE.

            9/11 was the same fraud.

            Not everyone is stupid and gullible.

            BTW more people have probably died falling down stairs in Israel than died from Hamas Rockets .

        Wow you dont even know your own history. Palestine was put under British protection and control after the Ottomans fell. The creation of Israel was accompanied by violence and atrocities and is so hugely ironic in the fact that the Jews of all people now are occupiers and oppressors. Israel and the Jewish people have lost their souls and their morale legacy. So sad and so cruel, Israel is rotting from the inside out. It’s not rockets that will bring it down but hatred and ignorance from within.

First you probably stole the land your on, second israel created hamas to use as a lame excuse to continue genocidal terrorism etc, third IF scrap metal bottle rockets are being fired into empty lots in the illegal terrorist state of israel it is probably being done by iof/mossas which is typical of their track record of false flag attacks & pathological lies

        Name calling that’s an excellent response from an ignorant person, is that you? For 70+ years we, the west have been screwing over the people of Palestine. The UN resolution 194 acknowledges the Palestinian right of return. This for a people who didn’t exist?? I think not. If you are tired of going to a shelter then try convincing your war mongering government to sit down and consider a TWO STATE SOLUTION. Otherwise, just move back to the USA.

There is no excuse killing innocent civilians especially their children.

        What is ethnic cleansing?… isn’t it like this: President Franklin D. Roosevelt put it in 1942, (6 years before the actual ethnic cleansing of Palestine): “I actually would put a barbed wire around Palestine, and I would begin to move the Arabs out of Palestine….…. Each time we move out an Arab we would bring in another Jewish family…” …. and it was far more bloody than just that !! @

        After the death of king Solomon (928), his kingdom was divided amongst his two sons. One son kept the name Judea, but the other son changeed Samara to ‘Israel’. Assyrian destroyed the kingdom of Israel in 721 BC. Kingdom of Judah was destroyed by Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC, who took over 25,000 Israelites as slaves to Babylon and demolished the Temple of Solomon. Persians conquered Babylonia in 539 BC and allowed Israelites to return and construct a new temple. In 63 BC, Palestine was incorporated into the Roman Empire. Roman Emperor Titus demolished the second temple in 70 CE. During 330-638 CE, Palestine came under Christian Byzantine rule. Islam’s second Khalifa Omar ibn al-Khattaab took control of Jerusalem and ended the Byzantine rule in 638 CE. Palestine remained under the rule of Muslim Umayyad Khalifas in Damascus, who constructed the Dome of the Rock (‘Abd al-Malik, 685-705) and Al-Aqsa in its current shape (al-Walid, 705-715). From 750-1258 CE, Palestine was administered from Baghdad by Muslim Abbasid Khalifas. The Mamluks succeeded the Ayyubis in 1260 CE. Palestine was incorporated into the Ottoman state and administered from Istanbul from 1516-1917 CE.

        The Zionist Jews have coined similar lie about their “Holy Wailing Wall”.

Why doesn’t our closest alley in the Middle East attack and destroy ISIS for US? The USA is your closest friend right? So why are you not attacking ISIS for us? If our close friend was being “threatened” by a group that was within a short distance of the bulk of our military we would attack the threat of our “friend” so why won’t Israel help out the USA????? 2. Israel is selling a lot of military tech to Russia, China, and even North Korea against the wishes of the US military? Why are you doing this? Are we not your closest friend? Is this how friends treat “friends” in the middle east???

        Actually,numbnuts,they did. When it was first taken from them by force by the ancient Israelites it was called Philistia. Home of the Philistines. Plilistine/Palestinian. You need not be a linguistic expert to see that the Palestinians are the aborigional inhabitants and the rightful owners. the article above illustrates what I have always said. Not only is Israel a judaic Theocracy,it is a rogue nation,and Americas number one welfare client and fair weather friend,taking taxpayer dollars with one hand,slapping the U.S in the chops at every opportunity(U.S.S. Liberty,never an apology,never a sufficient explaination. Just one example) Israel is the NUMBER ONE roadblock to a lasting peace in the region.Right of conquest,and “God said so” do not cut it as legitimate reasons to turne the Palestinian territory into a giant ghetto,with that wall. Of all people they should know better. I always thought the term “Jewish Facist” was an oxymoron,but then came Benjamin Netanyahu. I am totally opposed to the policies of the government of Israel(which does NOT make me an anti-semite,so don’t go there.) and am totally opposed to the BLIND support the U.S. has given that country fot thr last six decades. Without America,there wouln not even BE an Israel. Not very grateful are they?

          “it was called Philistia. Home of the Philistines. Plilistine/Palestinian. You need not be a linguistic expert to see that the Palestinians are the aborigional inhabitants and the rightful owners.”

          1. The Philistines were wiped out over 3000 years ago.

          2. These people were Greek, probably seafaring.
          3. There is no connection what so ever
          4. Even if there was a connection, the land they occupied was the gaza

          As a side note: The dumber a person is….the more likely they vote democrat.

            I have some very good friends in Honduras all Palestinian
            who are very successful also serving in the Honduran Presidency (Carlos Florez
            Facusse), Miguel Facusse. If you research it almost 250,000 Palestinians live
            in Honduras. These families were expelled from Palestine in the 1948
            “Nakba” One close Palestinian family (Facusse) of mine was a well to
            do family from Palestine and have done well in Honduras. I know their personal
            side of the story and yes they as Palestinians got screwed in the 1948
            “Nakba”. Many Palestinian families who fled the “Nakba”
            found their way to Turkey. Loosing their homeland and without any identity they
            obtained Turkish passports and then many found their way into Latin
            America/Central America to start their lives over. In Honduras they called them
            “Turkos” which translated means “Arabs” The old timers in
            Honduras remember them when they entered into Honduras with Turkish passports
            so they called them “Turkos”. In the 1990′s the Palestinian family I know
            in Honduras was compensated in international courts for land they lost to
            Israel during the “Nakba”. They owned land around where King Solomans
            Tomb was. Yes most of the world and Americans have been told a lie.

            On the other side
            of the coin I have Jewish friends I grew up with in Mobile, Alabama the
            Mitchell family (Mayer Mitchell). Mayer Mitchell was one of the founders and
            first Presidents of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A….

            My best friend is a Mitchell and can call any U.S.
            President at any time Rep or Dem because their affiliation with AIPAC.

            So I have very extensive insight into both sides of the
            Israel and Palestine story.

            I side with the Palestinian people and know they got
            screwed and the Israelis, are a bunch of manipulators, crooks, lairs who slowly
            infiltrated the American Government and ever aspect of the American society.

            Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. The Jewish controlled media just tries to confuse you and avoid any
            reporting of the truth. Many of Americas Congressmen and Senators are bought
            and paid for by the Jewish AIPAC. The rest of the Senators and Congressman are
            just plain clueless and that’s the way the Israelis like them. Senator Sessions
            from Mobile, Alabama is a good little goyim gentile bought and paid for by the
            Mitchell family and AIPAC.

          • Yah Saves

            “Its not complicated and the truth is right in front of
            your face. ”

            Yet you will not be able to answer a single question out of this list pertaining to “Palestine”;

            1. When was it founded, and by whom?

            2. What were its original borders?

            3. What was the capital of the nation of “Palestine”?

            4. What were its major cities?

            5. What constituted the basis of its economy?

            6. What form of Government ruled Palestine?

            7. Can you name one leader before Arafat?

            8. Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence at that time or now leaves no room for interpretation.

            9. What was the language of this place called Palestine?

            10. What was the prevalent religion of Palestine?

            11. What was the name of Palestine’s currency?

            12. Is there any great works of “Palestinian” literature that was produced prior to 1967?

            13. Have this great people called the “Palestinians” left any artifacts behind?

            14. And finally what country caused its demise and when did it occur?

            Don’t let the FACTS get in the way. And by the way, the land had originally been called Canaan, named after Abraham’s uncle twice removed. “Jews” have been there for THOUSANDS of years. They fought for it. They paid for it with both blood and coin. And they were also promised it by God. Therefore, you can pick why they belong there-history, purchased or promised.

      So many of your facts are false and you are just anti Israel. I would like for you to live in Israel for a year in the city of sderot, then you will know true terror. Also explain to me why Gaza was firing rockets this year even before these events happened. Israel was nice enough to give the Palestinians Gaza which was nice even though the Palestinians never had control of the land of Israel when we got our land. Stop making stupid things up and this article is the most screwed up thing in the world and people should get their fucking facts right next time!

      • d

        True terror you actually deserve. Are you another of those cock mutilated jews who were sucked by a 80 yo when little?, Did it leave you with serious issues?. Ill bet it did. All what comes from the sky and blows you up is well deserved, until you leave a land that doesnt belong to you.

      Personally, I think all the nations in the area are essentially insane. All the money that has been wasted on over six decades of war could have made a nice homeland for the Palestinians by now. I have to wonder why all or a good portion of the Sinai Peninsula couldn’t have been given to the Palestinians and transformed into something better as can be done with desert lands. This land is of little use to Egypt so why not give it over to the Palestinians?

    • Nir

      1. They have underground industries where they make the rockets by themselves. 2. Before Egypt closed the border with Gaza (because they know as well the Hamas is deadly terror organization), they used to smuggles lots of weapon through Africa. Israel cough one or two ships full of Iranian rockets (you can find facts on google), but misses dozens, 3. Israel left every inch of Gaza on 2005. Since then they shots rockets over civilians in south of Israel. Every day. 2-3 times. It’s not massive as now, it’s not targeting to tel aviv. But the citizens in the south have no normal life for years. 3. Hamas hides his weapon under ground, inside and under families houses, hospitals (UNRWA as well plz google) and schools. Thats why Israel can’t bomb from air all of
      Hamas weapon. BTW: If a family goes against them and doesn’t agree to the weapon in or under their house, they simple murder him publicly so everyone can watch. Just like that. Many videos on YouTube..

    • sara

      The Arab Refugees calling themselves ‘Palestinians’ STARTED this War and therefore they must accept its Consequence while by the same token they have been preparing themselves under their Iranian Leadership with the most immoral, despicable and dangerous of ways such as secretly building an Underground Bulwark of Tunnels on Jewish Land which would help them pop up from Nowhere and ,murder Jewish Soldiers at will…… Satan must be clapping his hands…..

    • Cristian

      Do you need proof? Go on youtube and search for Iron Dome in action. You’ll see plenty. And there’s this idea that these rockets never hit anything. That’s right because of the Iron Dome. Otherwise, the casualties for Israeli would be really high.

    • ash

      You are just another brain wased retarded anti semite. You don’t even know the history of the entire ordeal, like originally the jews that moved there after Britain told them to wanted no part of a civil war. They just wanted peace but no, the arabs wouldn’t have it and they are only to blame for the outcome of the last 3 major wars that shaped israel to what it is today.

      Hamas has released hundred of videos on youtube showing their rockets go, they have videos showing them putting them together. You are in denial and probably part of the all jews are evil trying to control the world conspiracy nut. Jews make up so little population on earth, they couldn’t control it if they wanted to.

      You and all these people are Biased. I guess it doesn’t matter to you that ISIS is now responsible for over 150,000 civilian, mostly shia, deaths. Why is the world ignoring them all of a sudden. They recently posted pictures of heads mounted on pikes of a wall and you know how they do it, not painless at all. Look at NIck Burg’s video. They slowly saw your head off while you are alive, not a big whack with a beheading sword. Real civil, don’t you think. I’ve never heard of the jews do that. What about the more than 100,000 civilians my own country of america killed in just IRAQ. No one cares?

      You’re just another ignorant soul who lumps every jew into one sub-human class. What about all the anti-zionist jews which exist. They don’t believe Israel should have been obtained in this way and are against it. They don’t speak out for fear of community retribution just like muslims refuse to talk shit about terrorists for fear of looking like they don’t support the struggles regardless how horrible they are.

      I FOR ONE AM FOR EGYPT AND ISRAEL TO OPEN UP SAFE HAVENS FOR THE ELDERLY AND YOUNG BUT IF THEY DID, I SERIOUSLY DOUBT HAMAS WOULD ALLOW THEM. THE NEWS NEEDS TO SHOW THE VIDEOS SMUGGLED OUT OF GAZA SHOWING HAMAS BEATING PEOPLE BACK WITH STICKS WHO TRY TO FLEE AREAS WHERE ISRAEL DROPPED LEAFLETS AND ROBOCALLS TO AT LEAST TRY AND WARN THEM TO LEAVE BEFORE THE ATTACK. AMERICA NOR BRITAIN EVER DID THAT NOR DID THEY GIVE A WARNING (KNOCK ON THE ROOF is what it’s called) before a missle strike on a home. So if someone is in that building where an incredibly loud knock on the roof was, you can more than likely blame hamas for forcing those innocent poor palestinians to stay there so that their deaths will help the cause. I guess they view them all as Martyrs.

      I can’t think of a single country who gives so much warning before attacking. Also, why doesn’t the media explain that all these UN facilities which were attacked were only done so because Hamas or other militans were firing anti tank rockets, mortars, you name it at the Israelis nearby. What would you do, just sit there and take it or defend yourself. Blame hamas, not israel. These people would not be dead if these facilities weren’t used to fight either out of or next to. I guess that’s okay though. What about a suicide attack killing three soldiers who were doing as they said, destroying tunnels but not fighting within 90 minutes of a cease fire. If I were the israelis which I’m not, I would say fuck it, re occupy gaza,, once and for all get rid of Hamas, implant the PLO who we all know Israel will negotiate now that they have been recognized to have the right to exist by them, and peace wil finally come in the form of a 2 state solution like the world has been striving for as long as I can remember. Many want a one state solution but that won’t work as eventually the state of ISRAEL would no longer be jewish. But that’s not okay to you is it but it’s fine for a muslim country to not allow non muslims first class status in their countries, and that’s if they are even allowed to enter the country for not being muslim. Mainly Jews are not allowed across most of middle east except for Israel.

    • Apollo

      I hope you realize the flaws in your logic. Food is perishable and much harder to smuggle than weapons are. The rocket launch sites are also usually intentionally placed near civilian concentrations in order to make them as hard as possible destroy without civilian casualties.

      Another thing regarding the food, Most Arabs nations care very little for their neighbors (as they’ve spent most of their history attempting to kill each other in one way or another). Their unity is founded on a common hate, because if they were truly charitable and supporting of their Palestinian brethren, why have they not volunteered shelter to the refugees and other masses, removing them from harms way?

    • Samir Halabi

      It’s European bastards like you who deny the ‘Holocaust’ who deny that there was once a thriving Jewish community in the Middle East and North Africa numbering 1,000,000 in 1948, made refugees overnight by their fellow countrymen as scapegoats, because the overwhelming power of five Arab armies couldn’t defeat the fledgling state of Israel at it’s inception, whereby we the Jews of the Arab speaking world where made to bare the full brunt of their anger. we outnumbered your precious Arab refugees of the former British Mandate of Palestine by almost two to one, the real estate that we owned in the Arab world was five times the size of Israel today.
      You together with your brothers in arms the Arabs, are so good at lying that they don’t know what the word ‘TRUTH’ .means. “Taqiyyah Taqiyyah Taqiyyah’ lies lies and more lies. That what emanates from your and their mouths.

    • mary

      sorry sir. if you cannot believe they have rockets then the best thing is go there and see for yourself. !! THEY CAN HAVE FOOD. BUT THEY USE THE MONEY TO BUY ROCKETS GET IT DIG IT ACCEPT IT BEFORE IT IS NEAR YOUR OWN HOUSE. !!!
      THEY ARE BUNCH OF LIERS, THEY ARE KILLING THEIR OWN PEOPLE , THEY ARE HATERS AND HATE YOU TOO, IF YOU ARE NOT MUSLEM U ARE NOTHING , people are suffering there, children women are killed everyday because they will not convert to islam. They have no shame in saying it in public. a woman who will not cover her head and look like a monkey will die.
      what the hell are you talking about ?? aren’t u reading and looking at the news ?? you want to be ingnorance until it reaches your own door ?? call us when that happens very very soon will see how u take it then, how dare you say you find it hard to believe?? who are u to believe?? move your butt and go and see for yourself instead of drinking beer and watching your stupid baseball game and talk talk talk .
      you have no shame and no respect for other people other then yourself that is why you allow yourself to be so ignorance and I hope I reaches your door asap. 9/11 happened whether you like it or not, because of these animals yes animals they are not people. a person that can let a child at 7 year old hold guns and have children gun camps is an animal period !!! get that into that little head of yours and understand it . just because you are far away does not mean u have to be so blind.

    • T

      The thing is ‘Big Dan’ :) It doesn’t matter if they have rockets or not. They are being ‘Illegally’ occupied, which means they have the right to fight against this occupation. There may be a chance as you said that it would be un-likely considering the Palestinians often struggle to even get water. However, by focusing on this we are taking away from the fact that they are being illegally occupied, and that the US are breaking international law by supporting a nation (Israel) with their $7 a day funding, whom are attempting (and being very successful at) occupy another nation (Palestine).

      • not authorized

        I expected this. Is this plan B when America wakes up to crimes being committed, and become educated about the United Nations true humanitarian mission and goals? Honestly, American’s recognize our sins. We will get there. But first, this situation is an immediate threat to a great many number of innocent people, and needs to be defused. On the surface, this looks REALLY bad. It’s almost like being pro-Israel today, is no different from being Pro-Aryan towards Germany in the 1930s. Nevertheless, this is happening today. Not 250 years ago.

        Now, lets make this goddamn crystal clear sir. I do not agree to what our government did to the Native Americans. I think it was horrible, wrong, and I would have protested it just as strongly then, as I would today. I did not agree to Slavery. I do not agree to it, in any form, even those present today in our economy. I do not see “color”. I did not agree to oppressing women’s rights.

        It is also ignorant of history. Many people forget we’ve had more than one form of government here. Including individual nations states. Each treated the Natives much differently, and in some cases, the US Constitution was heavily influenced by them.

        I view the world as a wonderful place, vibrant and colorful, with multiple cultures, each with their own sins and innocence.

        What I can see, historically, is a society, still actively attempting to mature and find themselves. The Idealism expressed in our Constitution and founding documents, was a product of the enlightenment era. Unfortunately, Americans almost ALWAYS does the wrong things FIRST, and the right thing LAST. But, we’re getting there.

        Now back off. Let the United Nations do it’s job. If Israel has nothing to fear, it has nothing to hide.

          @notauthorized:disqus. How can you claim to be an authority on the Bible when you have a SATANIC SYMBOL, a DRAGON, as your PROFILE IMAGE????? I seriously hope if there are any genuine Christians on here, they are not deceived by you. If you believe you are in the faith and are doing this in ignorance, you need to repent BIG TIME of having such a thing as your profile image. I have learned satanists will reveal themselves to each other via such images, all the while pretending to be doing the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are a satanist, be warned, for I pray you will repent and turn to Jesus Christ in truth rather than working to undermine the faith via the will of Satan. Otherwise, God sees all your deeds even if others have been fooled by you (who should actually know better – Christians are NOT to be ignorant of Satan’s devices). I will pray for you, regardless. If done in ignorance, please consider how you are coming across. I am warning you for your good too.

    To all who say Hamas puts civilians at risk! Do you realize Gaza is only about 130 square miles? That’s over 13,000 people per square mile. They are not putting civilians there! Civilians ACTUALLY live there! And yes Israel gives a warning shot to the civilians living in the homes or apartment complex of an assumed Hamas operative. This is exactly how long people have between the warning bomb and the real bomb to evacuate!
    This video was taken yesterday and I counted 66 seconds! Let’s see how fast you can get your kids and yourself out if you were in a room on the third floor of this building! God help the people of Gaza!

    Washiingtons Blog is a Jew hate site posing as something else. Gaza is Jewish land according to International Law. Most of the ” palestinians ” cannot trace their roots to the land past 3 generations. Many Palestinians are named Al Masri meaning the Egyptian. The US gives more to Islamic countries by a 2-3x ration. By the way, Washington was built on stolen native soil. How many natives were killed, displaced or raped by the British and then Americans? Omaha, Texas, Seattle, etc all native tribes killed raped and displaced by Americans. Washingtons Blog cares soooooo much for the precious Palestinians and 0 for the native American tribes.

Not me, anyway. But I didn’t know too much about the topic. “That’s OK,” she said. “You’ll pick it up as you go along. For the most part, at first, you will be doing what we call “meme-patrol.” This is pretty easy.

      Cry my friend..cry pffff. What you say about Palestinians can be said about Israelis. Learn history and you will know that Canaan has been invaded many times and many people have ruled over it and that ‘your’ people settled in this area as well and are NOT native to this specific area. And religion is man made so that promised land story can not be used to justify the takeover of a land and commit heinous crimes. We all know what apparently had happened to the Canaanites. Is history repeating itself again?

      And critiquing a government doesn’t equal hatred for the people. Don’t tell me that you’re one of those that shout anti-semitism when critiquing the Israeli government. That’s a cheap and nasty way of silencing people. Only weak minded people do that.

      Ow so what happened centuries ago we can not learn from? Just because old world Europeans commited genocide in the Americas we can’t critique? Also a way for weak minded people to silence a discussion.

      • Johnny Palestine

        Not only old world Europeans. Good old 18th century Americans. Natives from what is now Vermont to Texas were slaughtered for pleasure by the Anglo Male. Cotton Mathers delighted in it. Especially where there were resources. America was built on native blood. I am not silencing anything. You are benefiting from the Native American slaughter. I post it all the time. Nobody else does.

    Article 6 of the Rome Statute provides that ‘genocide’ means any of the
    following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a
    national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such (a) Killing
    members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to
    members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group
    conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in

        What kind of self-hating Jew are you (Levy I assume is Jewish) to seemingly deny the holocaust? You are not only selfhating but completely retarded. I assume that you also believe in the world being ruled lizard-aliens, the moonlanding being faked and Elvis being alive.

        Fact is that the world jewish population declined between 1939 to 1945 from appr. 16.5 million to 11 million, which proves how effective the National Socialists were in their genocide.

        Returning to the claims made about an ongoing “genocide” on Gaza:
        Considering that Israel so far has made more than 500 aerial attacks and comparing that to the deathtoll on the ground in Gaza one must either conclude that Israel is pathetic at killing people or the more plausible: that the country does all it can not to kill non-Hamas people.

        Hamas has one strategy and that is called “The dead baby strategy”

          “The figure 73,137 was reported in The New York Times on March 3, 1991 and was based entirely on the wartime German concentration camp records that had been captured by the Soviets and just recently released. According to this figure, of those dead, 38,031 were Jews. These records state that the total of all persons who died in the ENTIRE German prison camp system from 1935 to 1945 were 403,713. To repeat: a total of 403,713 persons of all races and religions was officially recorded to have died (of all causes. typhus, old age, measles, etc.-and execution) in the entire prison camp system over a 10 year period. Of those 403,713 a total of 73,137 died at Auschwitz. Of those 73,137 who died at Auschwitz, 38,031 were Jews. ”

      • Thomas

        You must be confused dear friend since the world jewish population went down from appr. 16.5 million in 1939 to appr. 11 million in 1945. Those are just simple facts that show how effective the genocide on the jews was.

    • Thomas

      ps: Considering that Israel in the last conflict with Hamas have made more than 500 airstrikes and that Hamas-sources in Gaza claim some 190 killed in total one must either conclude that Israel is rather pathetically ineffective at killing people or the more plausible: that the country is doing a lot to avoid civilian casualties.

      The difference between Hamas and Israel is rather well illustrated here. To the left a Hamas poster telling people to act as human shields on top of targeted buildings that have Hamas installations like rocket launching facilities or other military value. To the right the IDF urging civilians to evacuate the area.

  • Dee

    I don’t know if this is sad or funny. The Moslems are having a massive civil war between religious factions , 10′s of thousands dead , Millions homeless and refugees, 100′s of thousand wounded or starving , massive denial of basic human rights even in the most peaceful of Moslem countries. The People overthrowing the local governments in search of human dignity and freedom on an annual basis , whole economies destroyed, Millions starve and go without an education so Moslem countries can build up Armies to fight other Moslem countries …
    And this is what everybody wants to call a war and try to stop? Gaza? It almost makes you think war is only wrong if Jews do it… but then you can’t help but notice all the high body count Moslem on Moslem killing gets totally ignored or blamed on the US or space aliens .. anybody but the Moslems, so all the high minded liberals can continue to ignore the real killing and the high body counts and the millions displaced and suffering… I find that interesting, but it implies and incredibly sick agenda of those who focus on the least of the problems and the smallest conflicts so Moslems can continue to slaughter Moslems without too much actual scrutiny or accountability for their own actions.
    Failure to differentiate your troops by uniforms or other visual means and co-mingling bases and fighting positions , including missile launching batteries, from civilian infrastructure and civilians in general are actual war crimes under the Law of Land warfare/ Geneva Convention .. the violators are the forces that co-mingle their forces with civilians , not the folks who end up killing civilians shooting back at valid military targets because they set up in the middle of civilian populations. .

    • Carl_Herman

      You blame the victims, Dee. Gaza is the world’s largest concentration camp, with rhetoric to keep it that way coming from the lying US/UK/Israel “leaders” that have lied for their empires as far back in history that you care to look.

      And really, Dee, you’re far beyond referencing “Moslems” doing this or that in the same way one would say “Blacks,” “Jews,” or “Catholics.”

      And you really believe Israel’s claims on receiving rocket fire from Gaza rather than questioning whether this is a false flag to propagandize their unlawful wars? Unlawful war documentation: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/given-usukisrael-wars-lust-two-supreme-law-treaties-say-lawful-unlawful-war.html

      • Dee

        Carl, if life is just or fair, then why do you seem so involved is trying to right the wrongs you see? ( and are blind to the ones I mention). If Karma is going to level the playing field, why worry?

        Any cosmic justice will fall on the folks doing the actual killing if you are right about life being just. But you don’t really believe that.. you call for the arrest of the violators and pronounce that in your opinion and reading of various treaties so much is illegal, the opinions of the agencies that administer those treaties to the contrary not withstanding, and not actually having anybody to do the arresting, or any place to lock them up and no court that will trying them in this space time continuum .. you pose only non solution solutions.

        IMHO your continued advocacy of non-implementable solutions, and ineffectual pleas and pronouncements just bring the aura of impractical dilatant to a serious situation and make things worse. Do you have any practical or implementable suggestions to reduce suffering ? Anything that has any credibility in the real world?

        Anyway.. my post isn’t about right or wrong or solutions this time.. it is a simple observation.. The abysmally low expectations of civilized behavior, respect for human rights and dignity, and peace making efforts most everybody seems to have for most of their pet Moslem nations and terrorist groups. It is so low that nobody even thinks to mention the expectation of following the Laws of War and gives them a pass on the most barbaric practices and on how they conduct war They use child soldiers and kidnap and sell young girls into sexual slavery .. no outrage on Washington’s Blog, They deny civil rights and jail the political opposition and not a peep out of Washington’s Blog.. they line up folks at mass graves and shoot them in the head or behead them en masse and Washington’s Blog and it editors and authors do not even fart.

        I just find it interesting .. and then you have the Hutzpah to tell me ” Better be proud of what you think, say, and do, Dee” … that is down right hilarious, given the context.

          Dee, we know Israel, US, and UK commit Wars of Aggression and lie about these wars. You REFUSE to call for arrests of their leaders because, gee, that somehow isn’t practical to ask of Americans to enforce our most important law, and gee, war law is so confusing we have to ask our war-mongering masters what it means.

          You choose to blame the victims and ignore the history of False Flag attacks by Israel, US, and UK, which are the likely source of atrocities reported by corporate media in attempt to justify the Wars of Aggression.

          Yeah, better be proud of what you stand for. Thank you for helping people choose your excuses for Israeli war versus those of us upholding rule of law, especially war law to prevent yet more slaughter of human life.

          Again, this is enough investment of my time on your propaganda justifying more war.

            Carl, when the Treaty Authorities, the International organizations that administer the Treaties, like the UN , say something is a crime, then I will call for arrests.
            And they haven’t.. I freely admit there are good solid points made by good people on both sides of this legality argument. And I listen to both sides, but anyway you slice it, without official treaty specific authorities officially proclaiming that somebody is breaking some provision of the treaty , then there is no crimes recognized by any system of justice, there are no courts that will try them, no way to impose or enforce any penalty.. and when you go around “arresting” folks for crimes nobody recognizes you can get into technically committing real crimes and violations of civil rights of innocent people.. and people are innocent until proven guilty and they don’t get arrested without a due process judicially signed warrant and making some prima facia case to a real Judge somewhere. You are just pleading your case to the mob ( well a few passionate people that read a blog, a small mob/ enough people to make an interesting dinner party) . A totally valid entry into the market place of ideas.
            But Carl just because you make a argument doesn’t mean it is persuasive , or persuasive to everybody.
            In fact I think you way overreach, and by implication of what you post, ony ever look at one side of an argument before you pick and publish your opinions, and personally I have a hard time seriously considering anybody that so completely pushes one side , ask people to back them, but never prints the controversy ( as if it is not truly self evident that there would be a controversy about your idea)
            You don’t suggest anybody to plead to for justice that agrees with you, Arresting folks that no competent authority recognizes as even having probable cause to be guilty of anything is not merely inconvenient or impractical , it is criminal in and of itself.
            The reason you are so vulnerable to and annoyed by my contribution to the market place of ideas is that, I merely admit that there may be other opinions and that they may be held by the actual agencies you need to accomplish your goal.. It isn’t me that you need to convince, and you don’t need me sharing my opinions ( and that is all I can do), perhaps call up the Sec gen at the UN and say “hey, Ban, I’ve been thinking about international law and war and peace and you know, I don’t think I can agree with Carl’s ideas on the legality of war.. but gee he is a nice guy , so could you look at his opinions and maybe revise the whole scheme of international law based on the guys personal opinion of what treaty’s say and mean” , you can? that’s great, ” Say could you pick up a few heads of state and try them and reopen Devil’s island to house them/” “yeah, we are still on for golf Thursday”, “Yeah I can wait a couple days while you look into it ” Love to the kids ‘Chow’.

            Oh, good, Dee. Then because you say you listen to arguments how the US/UK wars are legal in Iraq and Afghanistan, please replicate one here in light of the two treaties that state armed attacks are unlawful. Here are the treaties with my documentation of facts that the armed attacks are Orwellian unlawful: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/given-usukisrael-wars-lust-two-supreme-law-treaties-say-lawful-unlawful-war.html

            What makes a nation’s armed attack upon another lawful or unlawful, Dee?

            If you need practice, try explaining how to make a legal stop at a stop sign in your car. Given your argument, bystanders would refuse to judge if anyone ever ran a stop sign because it takes a “master” to tell you what the law means and what the facts are. It’s all just too confusing, isn’t it Dee?

            We both know you don’t raise your children this way. But go ahead, you say you’ve listened to such arguments of lawful war and find them of interest, so go ahead and give us your best one.

          • Dee

            You keep missing my point.. you can list all the treaties you want and interpet them any way you want.. But the only way any of them will ever be enforced , are ever enforced is thru the Official agency of that treaty or Charter saying there is a violation, nobody has done that concerning the nations and wars you say are illegal. It doesn’t take some master to have an opinion, anybody can have any opinion they want. However if you want the UN or the International court to take action on the UN Charter and anything you feel is a violation as you read the Charter , then you have to convince the UN or the Security Council or the International Court to take the case, investigate and make a determination that a violation has occurred … Since they haven’t done that , that is my argument that the Nations and wars you are concerning yourself with and have opinions about are Officially, by the UN Charter you cite legal and innocent.
            None of the signatories to the treaties you list or the signatories of the UN Charter and the UN’s administration has ever officially ruled any of the wars you mention or the countries you accuse as guilty of anything or declared any of the wars illegal.
            I am not against you having an opinion or you filing suit against anybody.. I’m just saying nobody will take any action or even listen to you because you aren’t a member or a signatory of any of these treaties .. no individual or private citizen is.
            you argument isn’t with me.. my opinion is just like yours.. it doesn’t count. Not to the world of international relations and treaties .. don’t you wonder why the UN doesn’t condemn many wars? Doesn’t rule the attacker as an Illegal war conductor? Doesn’t arrest world leaders? Don’t you wonder even a little bit why they don’t agree with you in any tangible way? Or take any actions that you would deem appropriate to your personal reading of the Charter?
            That is my argument that wars are often legal and world leaders that conduct them are not criminals.. basically because nobody and no agency that actually has the authority and responsibility to decide things like that agrees with you.
            Quite the opposite actually, the rulings form the UN and the international court keep finding your pet terrorists as the bad guys, with UNSCR rulings against them and a price on their heads.
            You see things differently.. I get that.. and it is your right to differ from the folks with the authority and responsibility for deciding such things. I get it, you’re a maverick . march to your own drum, and good for you.
            but you have no real authority to declare anything illegal, nobody is bound in any way to give your opinion any credence, and it does not obligate anybody to take any action based on your opinion, or even consider it seriously. .

          • Carl_Herman

            What makes a nation’s armed attack upon another lawful or unlawful, Dee?

            Are you refusing to answer?

            Because you say you listen to arguments how the US/UK wars are legal in Iraq and Afghanistan, please replicate one here in light of the two treaties that state armed attacks are unlawful. Here are the treaties with my documentation of facts that the armed attacks are Orwellian unlawful: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/07/given-usukisrael-wars-lust-two-supreme-law-treaties-say-lawful-unlawful-war.html

            Are you refusing to answer?

            I think so, because this is the second time I’ve asked.

            I’ll keep count for those keeping score at home!

          • Dee

            Carl, did you read my answer? They are legal because nobody has said that they are illegal. Well, nobody with the authority, responsibility, jurisdiction to say they are illegal based on any of your treaties or charters.
            It is like when Russia went into the Ukraine.. the G-8 became the G-7, Russia was out, sanctions got imposed .. the Russian economy got it’s screws turned because they had no legal business in the Ukraine .. They agreed to a treaty to get their nukes back from their former client states.. the deal was the former client states gave up the nukes , Russia would never invade or occupy territory. The international community felt Russia violated that Treaty and imposed sanctions.
            The US and UK are not under any such sanction or penalty for violating the UN Charter or any of your treaties .. therefore Legal .. it is just that simple.
            If you are going to cite the Charter or a treaty then you have to abided by the Charters administrators and the Charter’s Process for deciding these things, or the Treaties authorities and process for deciding these things.. There have been no adverse rulings against the US and the UK for any of the wars you have mentioned .. there are no arrest warrants issued by any treaty or charter organization that has jurisdiction for US or UK leaders .. some folks from the former Yugoslavia have warrants out, some terrorist leaders do.. so we know when somebody breaks the rules the International Court is not shy about issuing them.
            It is the principle of innocent until proven guilty .. being innocent and legal is the default position .. that is the real world proof that the agencies and organizations that have the jurisdiction, authority, responsibility have not ruled the US/UK wars illegal. You on the other hand are tasked with proving the folks you feel guilty are guilty .. and not just on a Blog.. if you want them found guilty you got to make your case before the UN or the International Court. That is part and parcel of invoking any treaty , you have to respect the treaty enough to follow the treaty process for reporting and proving a violation.
            Your opinions do not have the weight of evidence, Your Blogging is not testifying, You have not presented any evidence following the rules of evidence before any court and you have not received any verdict from any court agreeing with you. How could anybody be found guilty of anything, or how could anything be ruled illegal without a court of jurisdiction and legally presented evidence.
            The total absence of any ruling or official condemnation from anybody with jurisdiction , authority and responsibility and the Total absence of any sanctions from any treaty organization or the UN can only mean legal activities..
            Your argument is with the UN and the Treaty organizations that will not condemn the things you personally don’t like or approve of. Ask them how they see all this as legal .. my opinion is totally based on the fact that nobody has been charged with any crime, no trials are planned for any violations and no consequences are pending for the US and the UK .. Now if you were saying the Russians are illegally hassling the Ukraine or that Terrorists violate the UN Charter .. I would agree with you based on imposed sanctions and UNSCR’s issued saying so.
            And for the same reasons I disagree with you about wars the US and UK get into, usually based on treaty requirements of mutual support and mutual self defense or UNSCR findings. You have them all, I have posted them for you in the past.
            But you can’t quite seem to grasp the realpolitik and situation in the real world .. can’t be illegal if nobody that matters thinks no rules have been broken.
            You can call it illegal all you want.. you can issue your own sanctions and penalties if you want , you can issue arrest warrants for anybody you choose… just don’t expect anybody in the world to act on them .. maybe you could print up thousands of them and sell them on the internet like folks did with land deeds for parcels on the moon or Mars.

          • Carl_Herman

            Dee: you claim something is legal until law enforcement says otherwise as the reason you say makes these wars lawful. You conflate the law (legislation) with enforcement (executive action), and NOBODY would choose that world to live in, and NOBODY of competence lives their life that way.

            I’ll explain and prove this:

            The core of your propaganda for war and/or how people like you will snap out of their brainwashed trance is that you look to the same people who created two world wars and hundreds of others to enforce themselves. The 1% oligarchs who continue neocolonial empire games are truly locked-out from war by the law of the two treaties ending war. Therefore, they purchased corporate media and the control the UN “leadership” to prevent the public from seeing the gap between war law and the facts of the wars.

            This is easily proved by stating the law of what makes armed attack lawful or not, that FOR THREE TIMES YOU REFUSE TO DO (unless you truly are representing that anything is legal until law enforcement and judiciary dictates otherwise).

            I offered that you practice by stating the law of what a traffic stop sign means. If we were having this conversation with 100-person audience at a school parking lot, and a car zoomed through a stop sign right in front of all of us, we don’t need a cop and judge to safely and accurately conclude that the stop sign law was just violated, and not even close to being honored. It wouldn’t matter that we couldn’t quantify exactly how fast the car went, we would know that what occurred on the ground wasn’t close to “stop.”

            The wars are the same way.

            If I sneered and said, “Gee, Dee, why don’t you write to the police and judge about your opinion that car didn’t stop,” the audience and you would properly shame me as being some kind of idiot or a dangerous apologist for the reckless driver.

            So, if you want, Dee: what is the law that makes war lawful or not? You surely don’t mean what you say that anything is legal to do unless law enforcement dictates otherwise, right?

            Will you refuse to state war law for a 4th time?

          • Dee

            Carl, I haven’t refused to answer, I have answered 3 times now and you just don’t like or understand the answer.
            But I can see why.. in your example with the stop sign, whether you like it or not the driver is innocent until proven guilty in traffic court, or assuming a LEO saw the incident and stopped him and wrote a ticket.. notice here that it has to be a sworn LEO that issues the citation .. the 100 civilians can’t do anything , and the driver could just admit what he did and pay the fine or he could go to traffic court and contest it.. he gets to do that because he is innocent until proven guilty and there is a presumption of innocence until the verdict.. and if the officer that issued the summons doesn’t show up to testify, the driver remains innocent and can’t be tried again.
            The various laws and treaties are the same way.. somebody with standing, upon seeing what they believe to be a crime, depending on how each treaty or charter allows for the reporting of an suspected crime, and lays out the observed elements of said crime, war or otherwise to competent authority and gets a warrant . then the suspect is arrested/detained/given a court date to appear , other warrants are issued to gather evidence and compel witnesses and then there is a trial held by competent authority as designated by treaty or charter .. evidence is presented, legal arguments are made by both sides, both sides stories get told , a judge or jury or both weight the evidence and a verdict is rendered.. then and only then and only if the verdict is guilt is anybody guilty of anything. Or only after both sides are heard in an actual court with jurisdiction can an act or course of action be declared illegal. and yes actually everything is legal until it is declared illegal .. for example.. wasn’t that long ago pot was illegal everywhere, but every crime has specific elements.. and one that is common to almost all chargeable crimes is “criminal intent” folks smoking pot for medical reasons were often acquitted because either the defense made a case that medical use was not criminal intent and the plea is “necessity” ( defense of life or sever injury of self or other) Almost every crime has both a variety of defenses or exceptions to the law or elements that must be proved but can’t be in a particular case. All of which can cause the adjudicating authority to decide the state couldn’t make it’s case. “All pleading are lies, until proven in court” is a legal truism.
            It is common, to show you have a freaking clue what you are talking about, to use phrases like alleged murderer or suspected stop sign runner., until the actual verdict.
            You do not have standing to bring a charge under any of the treaties or charters mentioned, You probably can’t even report it ( you do have a right to petition your own Government for redress of grievances ) and you can ask your own government to report it or hold individuals you think did something wrong if a prima fascia case can be made, Like the pictures from Abu Ghraib.. but you still need an investigation and a trial .. and a lot of people were unhappy with who got charged and with what and who didn’t. But like it or not, if some folks you personally thought should be charged didn’t get charged , they are innocent.
            And folks are always free to deliberately choose to do something against the law if they are willing to stand up and take the punishment .. like sitting at a lunch counter at Woolworth’s , one of the honorable and traditional ways to put the law itself on trial.
            Take it the next level .. to the treaty and charter level.. now we are talking voting and diplomacy .. what if stopping a war or inflicting penalties on one side or the other cause a wider war? what if admitting both sides has valid arguments and hearing and honoring those arguments was the way to negotiations that would suspend the war until diplomacy had a chance to partially satisfy both sides and if you punished or discounted one side’s reasons, it would just continue the war.. Nothing is illegal until it is ajudicated so after a fair and proper hearing or trial where both sides get a say and get to present evidence and cross examine witnesses etc. due process and all that. You have the link to the handbook with the official legal positions for Iraq and Afghanistan , nobody has ruled those legal positions and justifications wrong.. so they are right and good until somebody does.
            You get charges brought and you can start saying alleged war crime , or allegedly illegal war and not sound like you are totally clueless about the basic concepts and precepts of law and what is legal and illegal and when and under what conditions …
            I don’t care how many laws or treaties or charters you have or what they say, until a proper trial observing all the niceties takes place and some specific war or incident is adjudicated as illegal, because somebody proved it before a court of some kind with jurisdiction, it is legal.
            You seem to want to be judge , jury, and executioner and think your opinion is evidence or something.
            But to me the crazy part is , instead of trying to convince thru cogent argument that is some how rooted in reality and law , you think you can bully and attack and insinuated and act like you posses the one true truth simply because it is your personal doctrine, and no jurist prudence or due process or observation of Human Rights or national sovereignty need be appealed to, to give your proclamation credibility. That has to be one of the most absurd and arrogant positions I have ever heard.
            You pick and chose , out of context and with no regard to the due process mandated by the very document you cut and paste from because you think a line or two serves you cause and you ignore the whole structure and reason for the treaty to exist and discount the actual human beings that have the actual responsibility to make the decisions as if the combined wisdom of the world is not even worthy of consideration once the Revealed Truth and handed down by Carl is extant.
            WOW. forgive me CarlGod for I have sinned by understanding due process . I have eaten the Apple.. Yeah .. that was me .. so sue me. and I’ll do it again .. A real God would already know this stuff. At least get the innocent until proven guilty part right. Geeze Louise arrogant much? Think of all the time and trouble the world could save if they let Carl just explain how everything should be.

          • Carl_Herman

            DEE HAS REFUSED TO ANSWER 4 TIMES: explain what the law is when war is lawful or not.

            Unless you answer after four attempts, I conclude you are a brainwashed “useful idiot” minion of psychopathic and Orwellian “developed” nations’ warlords as they continue a history of empire, OR a willing propagandist spinning for more bloodlust while shedding crocodile tears how “bad” war is.

            Either way: you pimp for these wars when the law is crystal-clear in letter and intent that armed attacks are unlawful.

            I’ve given you four attempts to say and see the law for yourself, but you refuse this help, don’t want to see, or are on the team desperately spinning that these illegal wars are not recognized by the public.

            Good luck with that.

          • Carl_Herman

            Let’s use the stop sign analogy: what should the 100 citizens (including you) think, say, and do if law enforcement failed to do anything about a few drivers in the most expensive cars who routinely and historically blow by stop signs and kill whatever number of people you want to imagine comparable to the tens of millions killed by real-world developed nations driving the most expensive militaries?

            Hmm, Dee?

            Should they just shrug their shoulders, look the other way, and discuss due process has been served while saying it’s not their place to determine the facts of those ongoing cases?

            Want to BS an apology for citizens to not say the obvious: “These people blow off the law to speed past stop signs. They run over people daily. Those actions are the opposite of stop sign law. Those drivers should be arrested and stopped from doing that harm.”

          • Carl_Herman

            Readers and Dee: she has soooo much to say, but ask her to state what war law says similar to what “stop sign” law says, and she goes silent.

            Americans won the right to our Constitution and ideals in our Declaration of Independence, and all our families won the right to peace through two treaties after two world wars.

            But it’s not enough we have those victories on paper.

            When those rules are violated in Orwellian fashion, we must make the gap between the law and our “leaders’” actions obvious, make the crimes clearly visible, and call for arrests.

            You, Dee, LOL away as millions die from unlawful wars. How perfect for you to express.

            And no: you point to absence of law enforcement as an “answer” to what the law means. We have your answer to refuse to discuss the law in question, merely that if our “masters” currently in “leadership” don’t enforce it upon themselves, that means whatever they do is legal.

            The PLO never wanted “peace”.. That is a lie.. As we speak they are the ones who are NOT accepting the cease fire agreement.. They are using their own civilians as human sacrifices and they went public with the call to do just that.. Or do you just pick and choose which parts of this situation to follow? The PLO want the Jews dead.. They are recognized as a terrorist faction and the US initially gave them the green light.. Or did you forget that Obama threatened Netanyahu if he didn’t “give peace a chance”.. Now after Abbas has repeatedly violated the “peace” that was SOOOOOO important? Now the US has egg on its face for ever thinking peace was possible.. This article is a joke and a lie after lie that completely ignores all but opinion. Even the “reference” material is blogs and opinions.. If you have never been to, lived in, or visited Israel or its immediate neighbors? You have NO clue what you’re talking about and you’re the person Abbas is counting on to wage this war through casualty sympathy.. And Carl, you’re just stupid enough to cheer him on..

          • Dee

            Not, you do realize that just having an Idea, or suggestion, or a wish and posting it on Washington’s Blog doesn’t mean the whole world or even a single agency actually adopts it.
            Making wishes the world was different doesn’t actually fix anything. So in the real world you haven’t really fixed anything.
            Seems to be a couple folks on here think just because hey float some untried and untested idea or concept on Washington’s Blog that they have solved the problem and given the world the great gift of peace.
            And if the world, for whatever reason fails to immediately adopt and implement it it is yet further proof that America and Obama are the cause of all the worlds problems.
            So Not, not only did you not fix anything, you didn’t actually do anything by way of implementing your suggestion to find out if it was hard or easy to do.
            You and Carl are really explaining to the world just how truly useless dilatants are. You guys don’t understand the problem, the system that the problem inhabits, or what is actually involved in changing anything.
            You guys think just writing about it makes a difference and changes things.

Israel says it will accept a ceasefire .. so no problem there. but Hamas says it will not.. that means the UN will have to go in and kill folks launching missiles and using their homes and schools as magazines to store weapons and ammo .. just like the Israeli’s are doing, to enforce the ceasefire and then the UN will have to stay and police Gaza to prevent any more attacks. This would make the UN forces just another enemy for Hamas to try and kill … so yeah send in the UN. LOL

            Dude, again, what the fuck are you talking about? Do you even know?

          • Peter Warner

            Speaking of totalitarian governments and terrorists . . . the U. S. government fits its own (from the FBI website) description of an international terrorist organization perfectly. Since when does the U. S. government fight for “freedom and dignity”? More like fighting for corporate profits, environmental and cultural destruction, and financial hegemony over human needs. Your type of thinking is why fascism is on the rise (including in the Ukraine, where the U. S. government actively abetted the coup against a democratically elected government).

          • Dee

            Peter, for the sake of argument, let’s say what you believe is true. Does that make Carl’s plan to arrest the leadership of the US and decapitate the government, more or less practical and possible as a viable solution to stopping the so called criminal activities of the US Government as Carl sees things ?
            remember, y’all are against illegal war, which by the UN Charter includes domestic armed revolution against the officially recognized governments of the signatories of the UN Charter.
            Given the above , do you have an actual viable solutions to changing things beside whining about the way things are? Are you going to appeal to the clueless and saturated by propagandized public that is complacent in the face of this covert capture of the true and free USA?
            Sounds like the fascist Government of the USA has all it’s bases covered and you guys can’t come up with anything practical to do about it.
            In fact, it seems a little mysterious to me how you even came to this understanding of the way things are.. I mean, geewizz, according to you guys the US Government can manipulate anybody with lies and deceptions to rise up and overthrow any government in the world , drive others to attack their own citizens and neighboring countries after just a meeting or two with US officals, since there have been posts on here that purport to prove almost every war and economic downturn in the last 100 years was deliberately planed and executed by the US, even if we didn’t sent troops..
            There seems to be only a few of you strong-minded patriots that have seen thru the lies and conspiracies and have the secret of the one true truth and are the last salvation of a once great nation.. so why don’t you actually do something to change things?
            Obviously you are not into listening or compromise or expanding your base.. things must be accepted to be exactly as you proclaim they are and no dissent from the party line is acceptable, and you insist it all be taken on faith with no credible proof offered or questions asked.
            So what is your big plan?.. it sure isn’t winning the hearts and minds of skeptics and doubters by cogent and factual arguments.

            Why do you apparently think that Palestinians attacking Israel unprovoked is justified – but Israel defending itself and taking out the weapons launchers is not? Sounds like you are a bully who defends bullies. And hates Jews.

          • Peter Warner

            Here we go with the Jewish hatred “straw man” argument. Sally, you are an irrational Zionist psychopath. Despite what the JDL, AIPAC, fascists like Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and Daniel Pipes assert, defying the Israeli government does not mean one hates Jews! Palestinians attacking Israel “unprovoked”? Since when? Every second of every hour of every day for over 60 years has Israel provoked Palestinians! And to take out “weapons launchers” is a defense strategy. when hundreds of civilians are killed – likely very few children had anything to do with launching weapons. I want to remind you that you are defending an enemy of America — despite what the cowardly Congress and Zionist sympathizers like Obama, Clinton, and Kerry might do and say — a nation that sank a U. S. vessel resulting in the deaths of American servicemen. If you want to defend Israel, sign up for its military, otherwise you are an American traitor.

            Israel is calling for its own destruction and their so called ally the united states is in support of it. When they were fabricating the state of israel over the true nation of judea, muslims and christians they did not realize that this is a piece of land is situated in the Middle east and not Europe. It is not sustainable for israel to keep defending itself in ignorance. Instead of forced invasion they should have tried to create and maintain diplomatic relationships with everyone we would have seen a different country that is well placed in its context. Its so awkward, they chose the other way around. I think israel is the only country in this world that is cut off from its context, physically, psychologically, economically and politically. It seems they are fine with it, just look at the arrogance. How sustainable for a state.

            That way, we as a people, can nullify this whole bullshit end time narrative, put religion back into it’s place as a simple belief system. Doing so should allow us to get back on track to being a secular type-1 civilization.

          • Dee

            Not, do you realize what you are saying? If the UN goes in , they go in with troops and enforce the cease fire by firing at people who fire their guns… just like any war. just like the Israeli’s and Hamas are doing to each other now.
            You want the UN to enforce 20 years of peace by putting troops on the ground and shooting people until they are peaceful. Who is going to offer troops to the UN to do that and who is going to pay for that?

            And there is nothing to stop both sides from killing the UN troops. Seems like a very ineffective way to stop a war.. by adding yet another side to a shooting war.

          • http://bigdanblogger.blogspot.com/ Big Dan

            Everytime Israel bombs Gaza, they bring out the stories “rockets from gaza” and “human shields”. This is getting ridiculous. POOR ISRAEL! Do you think we feel sorry for a country bombing the shit out of civilians the size of a couple of football fields? We feel sorry for a NOO-KEY-LORE power bombing people with no food in an open-air prison? wtf, man? What planet are you from?

          • Sally

            You’re right – Gaza brings out the human shields. That is on THEM, they who use their own children to try to protect weapons.

            And you still haven’t addressed the fact that Gaza ALWAYS starts the fighting. Why? If they don’t want their kids to die, why do they start the battles? If Gaza laid down their weapons, there would be peace. If Israel laid down their weapons – as they did for 6 hours today, in the cease-fire brokered by Egypt – Gaza keeps on firing.

            I know you like Gaza and hate Israel, but tell me why your heroes keep initiating war. It’s because they want Israel to fire back, so they might hit one of Gaza’s human shields.

          • Peter Warner

            Gaza started the fighting? Really? With what, a few stones? Or did some merchant look at an Israeli goon-soldier cross-eyed? Perhaps some kid called a body-armored Israeli fascist on his cowardice. Israel has killed Palestinians at a rate of over 100 to 1 to Israelis over the past 40 years, and none of this would have happened if Israel weren’t established on stolen land, and if Israel weren’t run by racist Zionists intent on eliminating Arabic people from the Middle East. Your rhetoric is sickening, wrong, and psychopathic.

          • Sally

            Sorry Peter, but you are dead wrong. Israelis are legal owners in every sense of the word. The land is NOT stolen – it was bought, authorized by the League of Nations, and/or won when Islamic nations attacked Israel but LOST the war. You are aware that 20% of Israelis are Muslims? Who are full citizens? Oops. These Muslims freer than any Muslims in Islamic countries.

            Why do you defend the war starter, and blame the one fired on? That’s like supporting the playground bully who picks fights with the other kids, instead of the person who the bully punches, who defends himself.

            Explain why Gaza is right for starting the shelling. Explain to me how the US should just accept if Mexico or Canada rained rocks on us every day for 70 years. Rockets aimed at your house, every day and night for 70 years.

            Since Gaza STARTS ALL THE ROCKET LAUNCHING, PURPOSELY initiates launching missiles from HOMES, MOSQUES, AND SCHOOLS – and uses their own civilians as HUMAN SHIELDS – it follows that more of their citizens will be killed. Because they hate Israel more than they love their children. That’s it, in a nutshell. You can’t start battles, launch your rocks from mosques, schools, and homes – with people in them – and then say “Woe is me!” when your whole goal was for them to die, so you can parade them in front of the cameras and say it was Israel’s fault. No one who cares about their family mixes civilian and military uses of buildings where children sleep or go to school.

            Tell me, the cease-fire brokered by Egypt yesterday – Which nation was the only party to accept the cease-fire who stopped firing for 6 hours, and who never stopped, but continued the whole time? Your honor, I rest my case.

            The Israelis lived on that land too, Nimrod. It wasn’t stolen. There was no claim on that land until they lost it. The Jewish people don’t want to eliminate the Arabs, buddy. It’s the other way around. Where the fuck do you live? How can you be such a flaming idiot, really? I mean, to be so ill informed and biased against the truth, it’s scary that a person can be as ignorant of history as you are. Now that is what is sickening and repulsive, the rot that is your brain. Oh and your stats are off. It’s the Palestinians that are killing themselves. When have you seen a jewish suicide bomber? No, it wasn’t a kid. What happened was Gaza launched missiles at Israel, it’s all over the news. Maybe go get a newspaper? I don’t know but if you need any help with the tough concepts I guess I’ll help. And your proof of Jewish genocide must be the constant calls from Israel for Iran,Syria, and Palestine to be wiped off the map…oh wait, that was the Palestinians , the Iranians, the well everybody over there who’s jealous of Israelis turning of their country from a total wasteland to a paradise. It bums them out that they’re just not smart enough for that. Hah, The UAE students I used to study with in college had copies of all the tests and blatantly cheated on every test and the instructor let them get away with it, you know why? Because the professors have no illusions about the destiny of a group of people who would blatantly cheat on physics tests AND STILL FAIL hahaha.

You see, most of these people who hate Israel are either atheist liberals who grew up in an unhappy Christian home or are Arabs posing as Americans or using Americanized names. They will believe whatever lies place the blame on Israel becuse they are offended by them being the chosen people. That’s what this is about, what is has been about and what it will always be about until god willing, a savior appears or comes again and smites them all for going against his people. So it is written, so shall it be done and they hate the fuck out of that because of the whole Ishmael thing.

            Could you please find a source that is not the “washingtonblog.com”….Also, for my own edification, could you please answer the following questions:

            1. Have you been to Israel (or “the occupied territories”)

            2. Have you read any history books regarding the area from 2000 years ago to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, and from there to current times?

            3. Do you have an education of any sort… ie. Were you trained to think logically and to solve problems using facts and information?

            4. Are you American? Skip to 8 if not.

            5. If yes, have you left the state you live in? Have you left the country you live in? Can you locate the Middle East on a Map? Can you locate Israel on a map?

            6. Do you have any Jewish friends? Do you have any Arab or Muslim friends? Do you have any friends that are of a different origin, race or religion from what you are/practice?

            7. Do you believe in Alien conspiracies or spiritual beings?

            8. Do you have access to unbiased news sources (ie. sources from multiple countries or outlets? – if so, use that ability)

            While I don’t believe that either side is innocent, the fact that this site exists and there are people in the world who believe it, blows my mind. My recommendation would be: go to Israel, visit Gaza; and take a video camera so you’ll be able to see these conspirators in action – firing on their own country.

            What I’m trying to find out, is this:
            a) are you trolling this site to get a stir out of some of the posters?
            b) are you so biased and dare I say “dumb” that you would believe the crap on this site?

            No one would fire rockets at Israel if the living conditions in Gaza or the West Bank were humane. Israel is managed from within and without by a gang of right-wing racist fascists who emulate the German Nazis in every way. As went Germany, so will Israel — sooner or later, justice will catch up to the Zionist hatred.

            The deep, sweltering hatred the Muslims have with the Jews is much more than mere “living conditions.”

            No one would fire rockets at israel if they all just recognized it as a Jewish country. That’s ALL they have EVER asked for. Rockets are being fired to obliterate the Israeli people. it’s not at all about living conditions.

            OOH Sally, They HATE them, The Moslems HATE the Jews, They are a hateful people – Say, were you one of those who believed old Georgie Bush, who also once proclaimed that 911 was done by the Moslems or was it the Iraqi’s, or could it have been the Afghanis, because they Hate America and the West , they hate their freedoms? Palestine was wrested illegally from the Palestinians you APE, THATS why they’ve been resisting ever since – I am sorry that you are indignant at the Natives when they resist your disposessing them of their land and property and their lives and the lives of their little children. Damn those pesky brown natives, they’re the same everywhere civilised white people try to settle.

          • American

            Hi Ew
            I have to admit until now I had thought 9/11 was done by Muslim terrorists. Who really did it?

          • Scott

            Oh Ewan you silly faggot. The land was wrestled from the jews too once. And let me tell you again, boy, Jews lived there too. There is no such thing as a Palestinian. they are a political entity, nothing more. Oh, entity means body or being, also refers to an organization or spirit. Oh, a spirit is that being that dwells in many people but not all, take you for example. There’s a brain but it has a distaste for facts. dispossess them of their land? Hoo boy that’s rich. I’d like to see you point to a group of people on this earth that hasn’t dispossessed another people of their land. It isn’t just white people you fucking tool.

          • Scott

            Is the reason they fight the same reason they sell their daughters to old men? Is it also the reason they stone women for adultery or shoot them in the head for going to school? Yeah, your pet people really are a model people. Tolerant, wise, nonviolent. Who’s been resisting? Which ass whooping are you referring to? The six day war where tiny Israel pounded your noble brothers, you dog.

          • dasd

            Can you explain my why jews mutilate the dicks of their children and then let a very old man to suck their bloody penis? Please?. Would you explain me a single valid reason for it?. Please?. You go saying things about others but you dont look your own?. Typical from people like you, isnt it?. Care to explain me why sucking a baby bloody penis you just mutilated is a “religious” act?. For me it looks like some pagan blood pedophile ritual….

            Its worth the five cents you pay in taxes. In addition, it was Israeli scientists who largely developed the technology. Who do you think developed Drone Technology? An Israeli engineer.Google it. Israel and the US are heavily invested in each others technologies. IBM, Microsoft, Apple…thousands of patents. Israel is a leader in sophisticated electronics, computers, medical science, agricultural methods, etc. Google ” Israeli discoveries and Israeli companies and Israel and NASDAQ.” What the US gets back in investments in Israeli R&D is ten times over the loan guarantees it provides Israel. This little nation has more scientists, engineers, physicists, etc. per capita than any other nation on the face of the earth.

            Don’t you see? That is why people like Ewan exist, to hate and be jealous of what their mongrel race can’t achieve. You know, statistically speaking Arabs don’t even rank when it comes to intelligence. They are consumed with hating jews which is most likely a result of their tiny brains that only know how to blame other peoples for their problems as opposed to coming up with new ideas and businesses, educating their children, they strap bombs to them and send them off to die. Now, Ewan, calls us thief but I say a people like his pet palestinians aren’t even worth saving. All they do is kill and die and hate. No wonder God told Joshua to kill every living thing in Jericho, they’re savages. I mean all you ever hear is about is them selling their children, stoning their women, killing themselves cause they can’t fight. They are a people that will wind up in the dustbin of history and none too soon. They are a scourge on the planet and some of the most backward people on it. They are just jealous because before the Jews got their homeland back it was nothing, they didn’t do a damn thing to it. Now it’s a paradise and they want it back with the improvements but mark my words if they ever did get it back it would be a total war zone in a few years and look just like lebanon used to. But one thing I have to say is that Arab homes put ours to shame.

          • sa

            Just to complete his vision of jews. They also are the guys crying about holocaust then doing it on other gents. They are also the gents who will send their children to be genital mutilated and maybe to have a pedophile session with a very old perverted man who will mutilate the baby and then suck his bloody dick (yes, as bad as it sound, best part is that is legal in USA, so imagine wht they will do there where no one is looking at them….

          • Frankie Z

            This is a marginal practice and is not at all common among world Jewry. On the other hand, would you be willing to condemn Catholics because their priests are notorious pedophiles who like to bugger 6 year old choir boys? Waiting for your erudite response.

        Oh for gods sake, whats the underlying question? You would have had the 100% support and generosity from the country and people of Israel if you had proved yourselves. We started to give it back. All we wanted to see, before handing over the whole bunch of keys were your true intentions. Farm those fields, build those hotels, pave the streets with gold. We had to see SOMETHING before you got the lot. Well look what you showed us…right from the very beginning. Hate, violence, attack, annihilate. So this is the underlying question being answered. You really don’t want anything but that. So be it. Now accept the consequence.

        • Peter Warner

          Danielle, to which Israel do you refer – the one that has repeatedly refused to negotiate peace? or the one that makes being Palestinian a crime? or the one that foments terror in Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt? Ain’t no one but Israel and the U. S. doing any “annihilating” in the Middle East.

          • Matt

      The first thing that makes me think someone’s a shill is you’ve never seen them before except to apologize for Israel in a post mentioning Israel, and #2 they always bring up that people who say anything about Israel “hate the Jews”. There are obviously at least 3 shills who fit this criteria in this post.

      I’d take seriously your comments, except when I got to the part where you said “only wrong if Jews do it”. There are lots of people, probably like YOU, who think the opposite of what you’re saying: war is ONLY RIGHT if Jews do it.

      • Dee

        Simple enough to catalog the war crimes of both sides if the intention was to deplore war.
        That is not what happens on Washington’s Blog.. The West is held to higher standards than the oppressed peoples of the earth.. and if that is not enough, Arabs and Russians are denied any agency by being portrayed as hapless puppets of Obama’s or America’s machinations .. I mean my God, the terrible responsibility that comes to tricking peace loving terrorists with absolutely no ax to grind , not historically, not religiously to being tools of Obama and waging his wars for him. Poor little pet Moslems , empty heads and innocent hearts used by the west in such a cruel manner.
        if that makes me a shill so be it. Big Dan you don’t even have a clue what I am talking about.. and if you look around the website.. your will see I have posted here before .. same thing, different wars, not holding both sides equally accountable for war crimes and atrocities is never going to end war. All taking one side over the other and only highlighting one sides failings/crimes/stupidity does is make a good point sound like one sided prejudice and hack journalism.
        I don’t play the one side is right and fully justified and totally excused and slant an article by omission while damming the other side to hell for doing what everybody does in war. War is about killing people and breaking things .. it isn’t ever nice no matter who does it or who they do it to. Either war is evil or it is not.. and if it is, both sides are wrong for killing people and breaking things, even if one side is stupider than the other side. Or you have to honor the stupid and legally insane and spiritually immoral reasons both sides think they have. This halfassed picking sides and make one side the victim of the other, based on personal feelings of a blogger is never going to stop war and makes a lie out of any moral objection to war anybody claims they have when they blogs about their superior moral position.

      That’s exactly my point. These people are demonstrating their true nature all over the world with their lust for murder and then you get idiots like there are on here who somehow don’t see the news. or walk down the street. Fuck, even AL jazeera acknowledges the killing. This is what the world should support? A people who turn every country they live in to a killing field where the rape and killing of children is accepted, their own children!!! They sell of boys to old men in afghanistan, they marry nine year old girls to men. They stone women based on accusations. And this is the people you supporters are saying are the victims of Israeli violence…give me a break. They’re their own worst enemy, they don’t need the jews to hate, they do a fine job on their own.
      IF you want to emulate your brothers, I suggest you move there and take up arms against Israel. lol.

      • sa

        Scott, in the USA, jews are allowed to suck baby bloody penis after mutilating it as a “religious act”. Can you care to explain me why?. Just makes me wonder what kind of terrible customs they have in israel since no one is watching. You throw so much shit over muslims and others bla bla bla, but can you tell me why “the best jews” suck bloody baby penis after mutilating it?. Please?. Or at least tell us what do you think about it. Please?.

  • Jaka

    false propaganda

  • Sean

    This is not even wrong. This is malicious slanderous writing. For example, there was never a country named Palestine. Ever. The annexation of land up to 1967 is an accordance with the international law and ratified by the UN. The rest of the land was conquered from Jordan, Syria, and Egypt in 1967.

    The nuclear weapons Israel may have are legal. Israel has not signed any anti-prolifiration act and is well within it rights to develop nuclear weapons.

    I can go on and on disputing your “facts” that are a collection of lies, half-truths, and anti-Semitic propaganda.

        Can you please specify when and in which borders such a state was independent? I don’t refer to the British occupied territory 1917-1948 that was, of course, never an independent country, but rather an integral part of the British empire.
        Your ignorance is staggering and you make assumptions that are not dignified about who I am. Your opinion, and the ones published in this blog are not founded on any facts.

        • yaz

          Well … who was inhabiting the land before the Brits took it from the Ottomans? You can see the borders of that state by looking at maps from the 18th century and before…. These maps are all over the web….
          According to your logic, a region that is not-independent can be given away and partioned to any group of people… so for example, the French can take London and claim it theirs, since it was never independent but rather integral part of the British Empire…

          The main question is not history…. There are palestinians and israelis living there, the main question should be how to reach peace… You can’t have peace if one group denies the other group’s right to exist…

    Six Israelis are in custody, in connection with kidnapping and killing an innocent 16-year-old Arab Palestinian boy by first beating him, then pouring petrol in his mouth and dousing his body, and burning him alive. Media are hiding this crime, because it was fuelled by ‘Kill the Arabs!’ propaganda hate encouraged by the Israeli media and government itself.

    If Israel ever did have any legitimacy, that is now over. Even Jews in Israel who have a conscience, are in utter horror of their fellow Israeli Jews, like never before in their lives. From 90-year-old Jewish peace activist Uri Avnery:

    Well put together piece. Factual and to the point! It certainly exposes the inadequacies of western news services, who ignore what is and has been taking place over a long period of time.

  • pnuwb

    This blog on Israel/Palestine is an almost ideal summary of the current situation but I have one major criticism. As always, the focus and conclusion is that what Israel is doing is “illegal”. MUST we legitimize at every turn? Can’t we just say that murder is “WRONG” for once instead of feeling the need to genuflect to fascist state laws? Does no one remember that THE UN’S PARTITION PLAN DIRECTLY ENDORSED ETHNIC CLEANSING OF PALESTINIAN MUSLIMS FROM ABOUT HALF OF THEIR LAND.
    The focus on history can be obsessive and distracting, yet even leftists talk like UN partition plan was reasonable because they are so desperate to apply the fascist language of “legality”.

    • Matt

      The partition plan did not endorse ethnic cleansing. Nonsense. In fact, 76% of the original British mandate which the League of Nations chose for a Jewish homeland, went to the Shariff of Jordan, and became the nation of Trans Jordan under the Sykes – Picot agreement which the victorious parties (British and French) agreed to to divy up the Post Ottomon Empire. 13% of the original mandate was allocated to Jewish settlement (on the coastal plains). This blog is more propaganda. The history of this region is extremely complicated and, unfortunately, it is easy for propagandists from both sides to simplify and distort and to advance their own political agendas.

      • pnuwb

        I was talking about the area of land that is now know as Israel/Palestine:

        https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bd/UN_Palestine_Partition_Versions_1947.jpg

        At the time this UN partition plan map was drawn up in 1946, how much of Jordan’s population was Arabic speaking? How much of the land signed as “Arab State” was Arabic-speaking? How much of the land assigned as “Jewish State” was Arabic-speaking? How much was even Jewish as a religion? I haven’t seen reliable sources with accurate numbers (have you?) but I know that most of the land assigned to be a “Jewish State” was Arabic-speaking. The Arab state was given roughly half the land, even though almost all the people in the area spoke Arabic as a first language, while the Jewish State was also given roughly half of total land, even though Jews made up much less than half of the total population.

        By calling it a “Jewish State”, the UN effectively gave permission for
        the state to ethnically cleanse itself of it’s much of its majority
        Arabic-speaking population, much if not most of which was Muslim. In practice, Israel has gone much further than the UN agreement, not
        only driving millions of Muslims out of the parts designated to them by
        the UN, but also taking Jerusalem and now expanding with aggressive settlement of the West Bank. However, this is merely an extension of further extension of what the Jewish State was given tacit if not express permission to do under the UN’s orignal partition plan.

      Per Miko Peled, an Israeli
      Peace activist

      Israel has been bombing and killing people in Gaza since it
      created the Gaza Strip in the early 1950s. On a regular base, Israel goes in
      and kills civilians in Gaza. This has been going on for six decades. Of course,
      it’s getting worse. The technology is getting better. And the casualty count is
      getting worse. But this is part of a larger issue, a larger problem. And the
      problem is that people equate the Palestinian response to Israeli violence and
      to Israeli aggression as terrorism, instead of realizing that this is an act of
      resistance. The Palestinians have been the subject of oppression and violence
      by Israel from the very beginning that the state of Israel was established.
      This is why we have a Gaza Strip. This is why we have hundreds of thousands of
      refugees in the Gaza Strip and other places. These people were forced out of
      their home as a result of an act of terrorism, which created the state of
      Israel in 1948. These people have been resisting, and they’ve been resisting in
      other places, mostly by nonviolent means. Of course, the more violent, the more
      the armed struggle gets a lot more media, but mostly by nonviolent means. They
      have been part of a brutal oppression for six decades.

      And what we see today is, of course, the result of one straw
      that literally broke the camel’s back, and we see uprising in places that we
      haven’t seen before, like, you know, inside Palestinian communities inside
      Israel. These are Israeli citizens. And Israel planning to go in and kill more
      Palestinians, knowing full well they’re going to be burning more Palestinian
      children, just like the one who was burned by these four or five individuals
      who were not soldiers, but Israeli military has been doing this for decades.
      This is nothing new.

      Miko Peled, you were arrested recently at a protest in the
      West Bank, protesting the occupation. You’re one of a group of Israelis who
      regularly takes part in these kind of solidarity actions. Has the brutal
      killing of Mohammed Khdeir done anything to raise discussion about the
      settlements, about the fact that this occupation is continuing and Palestinians
      are subjected to these types of—this type of brutality every day?

      I think it only has done so in that the foreign press
      is suddenly interested again. But in terms of the discussion on the Palestinian
      side, this is nothing new. This particular brutal case of murder is really
      nothing new. I mean, Israel—what do you think happens when Israel drops tons of
      bombs from the air on Gaza? Children get burned.

      The issue of the settlement is also one of these absurd
      issues that people talk about, knowing full well there can be no change. Israel
      will never stop building cities and towns wherever it likes, everywhere in the
      Middle—everywhere in what Israel considers the land of Israel. And so, this
      whole debate of settlements and no settlements, again, has to be taken in a
      larger issue. Israel has been building settlements on occupied Palestinian land
      since 1948, since the state of Israel was established. You know, the entire
      country is occupied Palestine. And it’s time to wake up and talk about it like
      this. This whole debate about the occupied Palestinian territories being only
      part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
      absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
      who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
      these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
      considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
      Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
      resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
      larger issue here.

      And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
      Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
      become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
      world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
      of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
      them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
      least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
      pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
      my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
      of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
      been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
      resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
      are the people who have to be released.

      The siege on Gaza has to be lifted. If Israel doesn’t
      like the Qassam rockets coming out of Gaza, Israel knows what to do, because
      this is a response to the Israeli occupation. This is the response to the
      Israeli brutal oppression of Palestinians for almost seven decades. So, again,
      it’s important to put this in perspective and not to treat this like it’s an
      isolated issue. And again, Mohammed Omer is 45 minutes away from me, and he has
      no access to clean drinking water. Families don’t know what to do once the
      bombs start falling. They have no shelters. They can’t escape. Israel has
      locked them in this massive prison. And I don’t know what kind of expectation
      there is that the Palestinians would just sit there in Gaza and not respond,
      and not respond with any kind of violence. You know, being as ineffective as
      these Qassam rockets are, at least they’re some expression of anger and some
      desire to be noticed.

      • Flaw

        Your full of it. They lost that territory during the 6 day war after Israel stomped them.They have continually lobbed rockets at Israel ever since. How do you think they built the tunnels they found? They have proven that the concrete to build them was for aid meant to build schools. They have estimated each tunnel cost appx 3 million to build, International aid? They could have helped themselves years ago if they actually used the aid. But instead they betray their own people by stealing what could very well benefit them. Then use them as human shields. They get NO SYMPATHY from me. I hope they kill every one of them.

  • name

    “Israel uses civilians as human shields.”

    you are really fucked up if you actually believe it, go look at some real documentary and news and know the truth, hamas uses human shields to protect rockets, israel never used civilians as human shields and has an iron dome the uses rockets to protect humans.

      part of the country and the settlement problem being only part of the country is
      absurd. Palestinian towns within Israel, Palestinian towns where Palestinians
      who are Israeli citizens reside, have settlements all around them, and all of
      these settlements are not considered settlements because they’re within what is
      considered proper Israel, but these are all built on Palestinian land. And
      Palestinian towns within Israel are shrinking and getting smaller, their
      resources are declining, and their landmass is disappearing. So we have a
      larger issue here.

      And, you know, I protest, others protest. Of course,
      Bil’in, where I was arrested last time—quite brutally, I have to say—is, has
      become the Mecca of the nonviolent resistance, and people from all over the
      world come and visit there. Yet the Israeli army shows up. They shoot amounts
      of tear gas that are obscene. They shoot shot grenades at point blank, pointing
      them at people. And then, of course, I stood there, and I was talking, or at
      least trying to talk, to one of the commanders, and at one point he got angry,
      pushed me around and then proceeded to detain me and arrest me. But, you know,
      my story is nothing. I get to go home at the end of the day. We have thousands
      of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the vast majority of whom have never
      been charged with acts of violence, which of course represents the Palestinian
      resistance. And these are the people that we have to be talking about. These
      are the people who have to be released.

      The siege on Gaza has to be lifted. If Israel doesn’t
      like the Qassam rockets coming out of Gaza, Israel knows what to do, because
      this is a response to the Israeli occupation. This is the response to the
      Israeli brutal oppression of Palestinians for almost seven decades. So, again,
      it’s important to put this in perspective and not to treat this like it’s an
      isolated issue. And again, Mohammed Omer is 45 minutes away from me, and he has
      no access to clean drinking water. Families don’t know what to do once the
      bombs start falling. They have no shelters. They can’t escape. Israel has
      locked them in this massive prison. And I don’t know what kind of expectation
      there is that the Palestinians would just sit there in Gaza and not respond,
      and not respond with any kind of violence. You know, being as ineffective as
      these Qassam rockets are, at least they’re some expression of anger and some
      desire to be noticed.

        I dont think American servicemen have a choice in defending their own interests. So far they have fought wars that did not concern them and continue to put themselves in more debt and further dependable on china and japan. They can easily put this money in their own cities such as Detroit but we see the same treatment here against the blacks like the palestinians in Gaza. Now dont tell me that 9/11 by itself is a good reason to invade irrational wars in afganistan and iraq. This has proven not to work simply because the U.S is fighting terrorism with terrorism they left middle east with more terrorism in the name of democracy. What a spiral effect. Their ultimate war is with Russia not even the middle east. De stabilizing the middle east will weaken Russia. The israeli congress of America did not realize that alot of these nations have started to realize that the Russian government is more friendly. But ofcourse they care less about Americans. Israel will bring America to the ground with them if they dont stop their arrogant behavior. Politians should always maintain a diplomatic behavior because things are never that simple as declaring a war over a murder. We need new leadership that posses constructive and creative solutions.

        • Hannah

          Its funny how the israeli military is telling people to evacuate without telling them where they can go. They have left no place for civilians to escape. Israel is threatened by the children for palestine just see what Ayelet shakil the crazy law maker is doing in israel calling children snakes and calling for genocide against civilians. They teach their children to hate then call for peace. I wonder what kind of future does israel aim for with all this hate propaganda? Peace is relatively simple in essence its about mutual respect which is so fundamental in any society. It is the job of lawmakers leaders of any society to set a correct example for the society. If israel says it is the only democracy in middle east the most cultivated and civilized it should create that impression first by respecting the international law. It is so fundamental their is no real argument to this.

          • Hannah

            Another point of discussion is that in the rise of nationalism people do whatever it takes to defend their population its about the collective. Palestine and israel are two strong nationalistic nations that will do whatever it takes in defending their existence and people. Because of this, it is not rational to think hamas kills its own civilians despite what the propaganda suggests. The entire fight is over territory which needs to be occupied with palestinian civilians as per the international law. Palestine has no one to defend itself except Hamas which uses resistence to defend its territory and civilians with whatever they have excluding civilians as per the evidence it is the israeli forces that are killing the civilians. Once again their is no real argument to this. Resistence cannot be fought with terrorism has this worked before? It just gives rise to more nationalism. I wonder where are the heads of all these politians that continue to provoke war against humanity.

          • Hannah

            Blaming one another and this continues to go no where at the end it is humanity that loses, pays a big price more hate corruption and distress. Killing of innocent civilians should be condemned under any circumstance.

          • Hannah

            Israel does not want rockets from hamas and says it has the right to defend itself. Hamas knows israel has the iron dome and a bigger military throws rockets on israel in response to defend its territory. Why doesnt israel de colonize palestine so they can live the way they want, have their own freedom and rights if they dont want any rockets ? They cant understand something this simple? Why dont they have any regard for the international law? Politians keep making reasons to fight and corrupt common sense. Peace needs to come from both parties in agreement of mutual respect.

          • Hannah

            It is just not sustainable for a state to keep defending itself in ignorance. I would think its more then that. Both parties need better leadership otherwise no good future in that part of the region would prevail with continuing violence and bloodshed it just attracts more war. Then israelis would be sending their children over seas as no one wants to live in a war zone. Is this the future of such a state that will continue to defend itself at the expense of others when they could have done it otherwise?

          • Hannah

            Just a war zone.

  • Loefingstonn

    Last note: To be clear, Israel is a legal state

    While this is a commonly held belief, Israel most decidedly is NOT a ‘legal’ state. It was even recognized in the course of the negotiations of a partition plan that the UN had no legal mandate to partition Palestine in the first place.

    But even if one were to assume that the UN had had actual legal authority, UN GA Res 181 was submitted to vote by General Assembly, after a delay imposed by powerful Zionists to twist arms and deliver threats, that would ensure the passage of the resolution. Res 181 was never voted on by the Security Council, which means that the measure remained nothing more than a non legally-binding recommendation. Significantly, as well, its implementation was predicated upon agreement between the majority indigenous and minority Jewish populations.

    I urge the author and contributors to WB to read the following document very carefully:

    The UN did NOT create Israel

    Do we really know? Some people are supporting Palestinians and some are supporting Israel. Some say its Israel’s fault and some say its Palestine who is to blame. But do we really know? Every website you go on to get facts about this, you think it’s true, but others say its fake and a lie. So who’s right here? How can you be sure that you are right and the other is wrong? How can you be so sure that you are right when you don’t have EVERY little piece of info that is going on? How can you be sure that the media is giving you the FULL story and not leaving out tiny bits of info that are actually important? People say go check out this website, it has facts, but go to another website and it has a COMPLETELY different story. So, I wanna know, do we really know?

    • Hannah

      That is a very good question exactly how do you know what is true and false? The day when media becomes transparent in north america it would become easier to debate look at evidence and pass a judgement. We can only go by history with certainty and evidence of mass murder of civilians. Media should show both side of the stories effectively their has been no live coverage from gaza. If anyone dare speaks they are punished and accused of being anti semitic. International law should govern at the end in my opinion.

    How ignorant is the person who has written the article or misrepresenting the maps. The same UN that he quotes as claiming that Israel has illegally occupied palestinian land is the very same UN that decreed the partition of Palestine. And all would and could have remained equitable but for the surrounding Arab countries unifying and waging war on the fledgling state and threatening to drive the Jews into the sea. That was after independence
    Then came the yom kippur war where once again the arab countries were the aggressors and lost land as a result
    This crazy appeasement of anti semetism needs to stop. The Arab countries are the ones responsible for the sorry plight of the Palestinian refugees and have pushed three generations to a point and place beyond hope
    The west bank remains stable. Hamas massacred fatah members in the gaze strip who were moderates and established their hard line terrorist government

      Read this carefully: The UN did NOT create Israel

      Don’t miss the article embedded at the link, by Jeremy R. Hammond: The Myth of the U.N. Creation of Israel

      It was recognized even during the negotiations that the partition of Palestine was not within the UN’s jurisdiction, according to the UN Charter, to carve up Palestine in favor of a foreign minority.

      The self-proclaimed state of ‘Israel’ not only has no legal basis to exist, it has been in violation of multitudes of UN resolutions condemning ‘Israel’s’ contravention of the Geneva accords.

The only reason they have the record they do at the UN is because the UN i peopled by vapid liberals and fascists who only vote their pocketbooks.

    Last note: To be clear, Israel is a legal state, but only within the
    borders allotted to it by the United Nations – the Pre-1967 borders

    Pardon me those are the Armistice lines from 1948 and they were disputed by the arabs so much they launched the 1967 war to erase Israel from the map > Or is your memory so short you forgot all that history

    • rosross

      Israel has no legal borders beyond the UN mandate. That is a fact. The land taken in war does not belong to Israel and is Occupied Palestine. And the reason why they wanted to erase Israel from the map was for the same reason American Indians fought a resistance war against their colonisers. Indigenous people tend to do that, fight their occupiers. Why would the Palestinians be any different?

    • Leofingstonn

      The United Nations “allotted” nothing on Nov 29,1947. The carve-up of Palestine was illegal to begin with – recognized by lawyers at the time to be in contravention of the UN Charter.

      Even if one were to concede that the UN partition plan for Palestine was legal, UN Res 181 was submitted to vote by the General Assembly, only, never by the Security Council. Hence, the resolution was legally non-binding; nothing more than a recommendation which, in addition, was predicated on common agreement between the indigenous population and European Jewish immigrants.

      Israel is by no means a ‘legal state’. But it is unfortunately a fact on the ground. It is with those realities in mind that any ‘peace process’ should be undertaken.

      As for the war of 1967, it was provoked entirely by Israel, backed by donations of state-of-the-art weaponry and underwritten by ‘interested parties’. Guess who …

  • Wm Anthony

    Simply put, you are totally offside. Even your name “Washington’s” is misleading.
    If anyone wants the truth to these many allegations, they can be found at honestreporting.com where these news reports were analyzed as they occurred.

    Regarding the rockets, I had a text from a friend in Tel Aviv who has to go to the shelters at least once a day. The welcome ‘boom’ from the iron dome counter rockets is a relief to all. If Palestinians reined in their radicals, all would have peace and Israel could relax their security measures. The bottom line is that they can’t be trusted to self-police, they bring their children up with hate, their religion is focused on world domination by whatever means, and they are lazy.

    Lazy? For centuries they squatted on the Jewish homeland and did nothing to improve it. Since 1947, the Israelis have made remarkable improvements in tree planting, agriculture, infrastructure (the Palestinians keep blowing theirs up), the arts, medicine, science, the list goes on.
    To get some perspective, if some radical Canadians fired rockets over the border into the USA, what do you think the reaction would be? The Canadians would be given a chance to restore order. If it didn’t happen, the US would take steps to protect its people. This is exactly the position that Israel is in. The people firing the rockets are supported by the people who don’t. They want the ‘right’ to kill Israelis without suffering retaliation.
    Israel needs our prayers and support. They are the only democracy in the middle east.

    • rosross

      You probably do not realise the level of bigotry expressed in your comment. If one were to give carte blanche to occupiers and colonists because they thought the ‘land’ could be better exploited, the world would be constantly over-run.

      Apart from which it is yet more Zionist propaganda. There are thousands of photos and articles on Palestine in the 18th and 19th centuries which show that the Palestinians cared for and nurtured the land and their agriculture was impressive and exported.

      And you cannot be a democracy as an occupier and coloniser. You also cannot be a democracy as an apartheid State which gives superior rights to one group, in this case, followers of Judaism.

    • Loefingstonn

      On the subject of rockets falling on Israeli ‘territory’, “Prize-winning Israeli defense expert says numbers inflated by as much as
      90%
      , Israel says Hamas makes sophisticated long-range rockets in Gaza.”

      [...]Dr. Moti Shefer, has said that Israel is inserting “virtual” incoming
      Hamas rockets into operators’ radar screens in order to claim higher
      than warranted success rates”.

      “We’re shooting at ourselves, mainly virtually. The virtual rocket was
      invented in order to increase the vagueness surrounding Iron Dome.
      Assume that a real rocket arrives. What does the command and control
      system do? It creates nine more virtual rockets, and transmits their
      paths on computer graphics to the rocket launcher operators. The
      launcher operators see 10 rockets and launch 10 Iron Dome interceptors.
      People hear 10 booms, one rocket enters, and you get a 90% success
      rate.”

      Read the full article:

      Israeli defense expert says Israel vastly inflating Hamas rockets
      Israel is using occasional rocket fire from Gaza as a pretext to terrorize the Israeli population, sounding daily alerts, to get the population fully behind the new bloody onslaught on Gaza and the West Bank.

      Cheap stuff. Just about as cheap and unjustified as your claim that Palestinians had “squatted on the Jewish homeland and did nothing to improve it”. Jewish homeland? Please, do explain what you mean. Oh, and, while you’re at it, answer this question: who is it who destroys acres of olive, fruit groves, and agricultural fields, each year?

    Israel is a state made by conquering poor Palestine’s land. This is a truth which no Jew will believe but its true that they occupied Palestine after being kicked out by all other parts of the world during world war 2. As they got power in Palestine they just started to kick out Palestinians form Palestine that is why there are thousands of refuges on border these days.
    What happened in the past does not matter a lot as compared to what is happening right now. Israel is killing Palestinians without any solid reason and what we all are doing is fighting here that what happened and what did not happen instead of helping poor homeless Palestinians by raising their voice.
    We are doing even more worse than Israel by not raising our voice against its violence and illegal capture of the land. We have to do something before it gets more worse.

  • Matar

    Well, I think the more appropriate name for the article is “skewed,
    misinterpreted and false facts that no one should waste time on reading”.
    But as we all actually did read it, let me show
    some of my perspectives on the situation, as an Israeli woman who lived in
    Israel since 6 years old.

    First of all, I want you all to look at the comparison the
    author draws- The number of Israeli children killed in comparison to the number of
    Palestinian children killed. I feel sorry for all the innocents killed in the
    war, but this is ridicules. Israeli kids aren’t dying not because of Hamas lack
    of trying- but because we all, as a community, a culture and a state, doing
    everything possible to protect their lives. You can see parents and Soldiers
    protecting with their bodies the children from the rockets. A vast amount of
    our tax many go for building shelters, putting Iron domes and educating people what
    to do in case of a rocket attack. But Hamas? The last thing it cares about is
    to protect its own people. They fire missiles from civilian homes, they are
    keeping rockets under schools and hospitals, knowing well that will make those
    places a target for the IDF and will cause a death of innocents. IDF issues a
    warning before bombing a home (can you imagine, for example, USA forces issuing
    a warning before bombing a house of an El-Qaida member?), to allow the people
    escape to safety. On the contrary, The Hamas orders those people to stay,
    putting them all in danger. For 9 years Hamas is in charge in Gaza, it had
    enough resources to build terror tunnels and thousands of rockets, but not even
    one shelter for the children of Gaza.

    Many of my friends and family served the IDF, and I can tell
    you with all my heart- The IDF- Israeli defense forces- lives by its name. Whenever
    it is possible, they avoid casualties, even in a hostile population with terror activity. But we see
    sometimes children as young as 14, blinded by the appalling idea of Jihad, approaching
    military points wearing explosive vests. What can you do in this situation?

    Second of all, lets continue with the description of the Hamas rockets as “pathetic scrap metal
    rockets” I am not an export in ballistic, but a rocket that can travel as much
    as 60-70 km (the distance from Gaza to Tel aviv), and bear up to 150
    kg of explosives, doesn’t seem so `pathetic` to me. I live a northern Israel,
    so most of the hamas rockets doesn’t get so far, but as an EMT during the
    second Lebanon war (2006) I witnessed firsthand, and more than once, what a
    rocket can do to a human being- and the death it brings. Some of the things I
    saw will probably follow me until the rest of my life. Even today, a father and
    his baby boy escaped to the nearest shelter and survived, while a rocket, fired
    from Gaza, fell just few feet from where they were standing. Does the author
    want us to apologize that we follow the safety regulations and manage to stay
    safe despite this awful situation, or we need to die to make the statistic more
    even for him?

    If we talk about the Goldstone report, have you heard that
    Goldstone later asked to reconsidered for his report ? check it here

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/reconsidering-the-goldstone-report-on-israel-and-war-crimes/2011/04/01/AFg111JC_story.html

    I can make, with even better success, a parallel list of all
    the wrongdoings, the massacres, the pain and the suffering that Palestinians terrorists
    brought upon us. I can remind you of the hundreds of Israelis, many of them children
    and women, that was killed in exploding buses, cafes, restaurants, cars- but
    you can check by yourselves
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Palestinian_suicide_attacks.
    I can tell you about the pregnant settler woman and her daughters, that were
    all killed from closed range by a Palestinian intruder, about the family that
    was massacred with only one girl to survive and so on. Everyone here knows
    someone whi died- by an explosion, stubbing, a gunman, a rocket. We all hear constantly
    the declarations of the hamas and other Palestinians groups that want to destroy
    Israel. We signed the Oslo accords, and we got only blood and death as response.
    We left Gaza strip, we made thousands of Israeli people to lose their houses,
    their farms, their businesses-We offered Gaza people to build themselves as a
    peaceful nation- and in return? The Hamas won the elections, killed the moderate
    Palestinians parties, and started to terrorize Israel. But all those facts are omitted from this paper, not surprisingly.

    Now let’s talk about UN resolutions. Maybe you’re not aware,but there is a severe bias against Israel regarding those resolutions. http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/03/un_bias_against_israel_continues.html

    As I write this response, I get more and more angry- It’s one thing to have a debate with a person that gets the true facts, it’s entirely different thing to see a person manipulating and lying, as in this case.

    Israel using Civilians as human shield? A big fat lie. Every Israeli soldier knows that hurting on purpose an innocent Palestinian will make him to face trial and a severe punishment. Israeli soldiers sometimes have rocks thrown on them, and they do not react- although they have weapons- only to minimize possible damage to the (hostile) population.

    I can go on and on, and I will, if asked, there is so much more I can say about the article ludicrous statements, but for now, I hope I made my point clear.

    • Loefingstonn

      Israel using Civilians as human shield? A big fat lie.

      Answer this, then: What does the indigenous Palestinian population constitute if not a human shield to the illegal state of Israel? No one in the region can target Israel for fear of killing Palestine’s original inhabitants [sensible native Arab Jewish Palestinians included]. How much more effective a human shield could the founding Zionists and their descendants have exploited?

      Immigrant Jews, who have been subjected to several generations of brainwashing, Mizrahim included, have lost sight of the fact, or perhaps would rather not be reminded of it, that the conditions for the partition of Palestine were a) mutual agreement; and b) economic cooperation. Neither of those conditions were met, but were rather scoffed at by early Zionist terrorist organizations which expelled over 700,000 natives from their land, destroying thousands of homes and hundreds of villages, to make place for a ‘Jewish’ state.

      Who has been telling lies [for over six decades], then?

        Excuse me, what exactly illegal about the state of Israel?
        Maybe you should have a brief lesson in history. Start with this-

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Partition_Plan_for_Palestine#The_vote

        The Arabs that didn’t leave Israel during the war for independence (The invasion of Arab armies after Israel agreed to UN partition plan) have all their civil rights as Israeli citizens. They enjoy freedom of speech, religion, work and etc. I bet you never been here if you think they don’t.
        If we talk about “natives”, maybe you haven’t heard about Jews (Yehudim in Hebrew) that established the Kingdom of Judah (Yehuda in Hebrew), now Israel and parts of Syria and Jurdan, some 3000 years ago. Check this-
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Judah. You can also go to the bible, if you like.

        Did you know that many of the Arabs that lived in Palestine before 1948 (Palestine then referring to a geographic location, not a state) left during 1948 because the invading Arab countries asked them to, promising them they will be able to come back after the Jews are slaughtered? Well, it didn’t happen, and these people still call themselves refugees, 66 years later.

        About Arab nations being afraid to hurt Israeli Arabs? It’s nonsense. Do you think they care? Do you know how many innocent Arab citizens died because of Hizballah rockets, Hamas rockets, suicide bombers? All Israelis get hurt by terror, not only Jews. But maybe what you were meaning to say, is that Israel uses human shield just by being a state that has people living in it? Well, I cannot logically argue with a irrational statement as this.

  • red

    Hahaha stupidest thing I heard. Anyone who writes an article on how israel is inhumane obviously does live there and doesn’t know just how ridiculous and laughable this is. And how insane and messed up the Arab terrorists and hamas are. Go live there and then rewrite ur nonsense. Thanks.

  • Mightymo

    This is all propaganda, “tell the lie as often as you can & it becomes the truth”, father of modern propaganda Edward Bernays is claimed to have said. CNN had a republican Senator/congressman on today claiming Hamas was at fault as they were placing their rockets in Civilian buildings, the Zionists killed 3 kids playing on a beach in a video there were no rockets near these innocents unless they are so stupid that kids playing football look like Hamas fighters.

    When some idiot printed cartoons about Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) almost the whole of the muslim World was up in arms, here we have hundreds of innocents being massacred in what Zionists would call Shoah (holocaust) & we have had maybe 200-400 people outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington. Where are the so called Muslim leaders, are they sitting getting fat on US dollars for oil?

    You have in Iraq & Syria the western backed ISIS killing Muslims & Christians, if these wankers woke up & looked they would see who the real enemy is. I do not condone violence of any type. Jihad does not mean kill all non believers, Jihad is supposed to be for defence.

    War does not help anyone except the Arms manufacturers & their buddies……

  • anonymous

    Details, details… If you have eyes, you can see that civilian population are dying because of some greedy controller and fool you with lies and with that lies they start a war. Innocent people are dying. Doesn’t that hurt your heart? You all try to defend a side by using it’s history. But we live in 21st Century now and if you can’t see that all nations made mistakes in their history then you’re a dumb. Wars were mistakes. It must be stopped. You can stop a war with another war maybe but it’ll cause more sadness and more. Israel trys to defend theirselfs? Well then, try to do cooperation with Gaza and find the terrorists inside of them. But Israel has choosen another option. to emigrate Gaza civilian population if they don’t, emigrate the they’ll destroy them slowly. That’s heartless. Killing innocents is heartless. No matter what. That’s out of humanity. Hating is pointless. When PEACE is possible why do you creating a WAR? That’s insane. I don’t hate Israel people or Gaza people. But if there is a guilty, that’s Israel goverment. They’ve created a war. They’ve the power to make peace but power made them mad that they can’t think peacefully. Nor goverments that supports “Israel’s the instinct to protect theirselfs” policy. Time is already up for war. It’s peace time and think about what’re we gonna do for future. You know because of global warming we’re all gonna be affected strongly about 20 years later right? You don’t care I bet. You don’t care things that if they’re not up to your benefits. We have to find a way that it will be good for all of people. With the best way.

    It’s funny that the authors refer to the UNs International Court of Justice as ,” The highest court in the land.” I find that to be such a joke. The entire UN is a joke. The UN creates policies and then us Americans get stuck enforcing them! Every other country pledges a handful of token troops. America (and evryone else for that matter) needs to mind their own business and let Israel and Palestine work this out themselves. Honestly I can see both sides of the coin. Weren’t the Arabs living in Palestine first? I believe so. In fact wasn’t Israel as we know it created and settled by Jewish European refugees?

    The land was gifted to them around 1942. TheUN did what they could to help a faith group- Europeans that were so unloved that everyone wanted to kill them. How can a brand new nation-ISRAEL!!-! force Palestine to give them things? (they don’t Deserve) It was gifted to them& since time began- the PALESTINIANS was the only indigenous culture. ‘You’ do not Kill and bulldoze homes tearing families down for over 60 years and say’ I AM DESERVING-ISRAEL the NATION. ‘ You are not a race; you were offered- A- land to call ‘your’ ‘casa,’ so why didn’t you make do? did not!

    This blog post is scary by how it misleads people from it’s title, to all those half truths and mostly plain lies. This is false propaganda catered to the fools who only look at one side of the story. The fools who only believe the limited & selective amount they read.
    I got so furious reading this, because dumb people who love to hate- believe every word of this.
    Shame on you , for spreading lies like this. Educate yourself better.

    When the UN proposed the establishment of two states in the region – one
    Jewish, one Arab – the Jews accepted the proposal and declared their
    independence in 1948. Immediately same year Arab armies attacked against
    newborn Israel. Transjordan annexed the area intended for an Arab
    state, and renamed itself the Kingdom of Jordan, calling the annexed
    area the “West Bank”. Egypt took over Gaza. The West Bank and Gaza
    (controlled by Jordan and Egypt from 1948 to1967) came under Israeli
    control during the Six Day War of 1967 when Arab armies again tried to
    invade and liquidate Israel. Looking recent history it seems that first
    Arabs occupied some areas and have whole time violently tried occupy the
    rest but failed, so there could be some base to claim that instead
    Israel the Arabs could better be described as occupiers or better say
    wannabe occupiers.

    I understand Israeli actions through their security concerns and they
    really have good reasons for their concerns. Israel has also returned
    most of the land that it captured during the 1967 war in exchange for
    peace and normal relations; e.g. as a result of the 1978 Camp David
    accords — in which Egypt recognized the right of Israel to exist and
    normal relations were established.

    BTW during 1948-1967 occupation no Arab suggested making the West Bank
    and/or Gaza into yet another Arab state, this idea (as well Palestinian
    identity) started to develop after 1967, when Israel was again attacked
    by the Arabs and took these areas.

  • gdi4ever

    Since most Jews are Democrats and support Obama and open illegal immigration, I have to assume they as primarily leftists that also support Muslim immigration into Europe. Thus, they are actively sanctioning policies that will destroy their own support by destroying Christian values and creating secular societies that can’t defeat radical Islam. Their actions to promote diversity have backfired. Could you imagine if the USA allowed 100,000 Muslim children to cross our border vs. Central Americans??? Before long Jews will flee from Europe due to Muslim domination and hopefully they will have their homeland as a last ditch effort to maintain some semblance of safe harbor.

  • aackster

    Article is so biased and crap!

  • offer

    Ask yourself if the horrors all over the Syria, Irak, Lebanon, Egypt,
    Libya, Afghanistan Somalia, and almost all over the Arab and Muslim
    world are due to Israel “aggression, colonialism and and
    occupation”

    Ask yourself how come that in a short period of the last two months the
    death toll in the Arab world due to Muslims kill each other is much
    higher than the overall death toll of Palestinians killed by
    Israelite over the last 150 years..

    Ask yourself why Gaza strip that was evacuated from any Israeli people
    and Jewish settlements the Hamas there preferred to invest money and
    energy in building war capabilities than economics and education

    Ask yourself why in elementary school in Gaza the books are illustrated
    with suicide bombers sometimes children while some are shelters fro
    rockets (see UNRA press conference 17 July 2014, http://www.unrwa.org/newsroom/press-releases/unrwa-strongly-condemns-placement-rockets-school )

    If you find it hard to look at the mirror and ask yourself these questions then ask Salman rushdie, Khaled Hosseini and many more peoples, some of them are not so famous..just ordinary innocent
    victims of the radical Islam, people without any affiliation with the state of Israel but with great courage and solid self dignity.

    If you can’t do even this then you may ask yourself why??

    1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

    2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a
    Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the
    modern State of Israel.
    3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE,
    the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a
    continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.
    4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

    5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital
    Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even
    when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it
    their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.
    6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.
    7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.
    8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

    9. In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab
    leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left
    without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.
    10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution, and slaughter.

    11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to
    be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is
    estimated to be the same.
    12. Arab refugees were intentionally not
    absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite
    the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War
    II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been
    absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees
    were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state
    of New Jersey.
    13. The Arabs are represented by eight separate
    nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish
    nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel
    defended itself each time and won.
    14. The PLO’s Charter still calls
    for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the
    Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian
    Authority, and has supplied them.
    15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish
    holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of
    worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been
    preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.
    16. The UN
    Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions
    passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.
    17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.
    18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.
    19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

    20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a
    policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the
    Western Wall.
    Please share this and may GOD continue to bless the People and the land of Israel and the IDF.

    We must all be tolerant of the liberal left people who bash Israel and Jews. It is simply impossible too converse intelligently with the liberals. We must treat them kindly and try to understanding as we would to a small child with a mental disease. Seems like the U.S. had declared Hamas a terrorist group yet we continute to poor money towards the Palestinians. The Muslim faith represents 80-85% of the Palestine population. Then we have the PIJ (Palestinian Islamic Jihad) created in 1970 who are intent on killing anyone from the West including Israelis. Still the liberals tout all of the children killed by rockets fired by Israel into Gaza. Just on July 17, proof is found that Hamas does store their rockets in schools. Typical of the cowardly Hamas. Strange that the sick Liberals would malign our closest friend in the middle east.

  • DR

    Isis has killed more than 5500 people and promised to put Christians to death if they don’t convert, pay a levy or leave their homes with no possesions. Thats probably Israel’s fault too, How dare evil Israel defend themselves and protect their citizens. I’m quite sure if someone lobbed almost two thousand rockets into the US, Russia, Germany or North Korea no one would do anything for fear of injuring civilians..

    When siding with terrorists, the facts sure disappear fast. There was never a Palestine, no Palestinian government ever, no Palestinian culture, no Palestinian cuisine, no Palestinian arts and zero Palestinian contributions to the betterment of our species. It was just a name given to the barren, destroyed land of Israel in the attempt to strip it of its Jewish heritage. All attempts by Israel to improve the quality of life and raise the standard of living for Palestinians have been destroyed by the extremists exploiting them even as Israel is mocked for the attempt. All “charitable” donations made on the behalf of Palestinians are used for weapons of war and to stoke feelings of rage and anger -NEVER to improve the quality of life for Palestinians. For extremists it is important that Palestinaisn remain as poor, desperate and angry as possible -because a content, satisfied, thriving, prosperours people are unlikely to support the VIOLENCE the extremists need. And THAT is the real fact.

    Does anyone understand why the Geneva Conventions were ever drawn up and agreed upon by civilized people in the first place? It was to make an inhumane act (war) as humane as possible which means bringing it to the fastest close possible. It isn’t intended to benefit one side over the other, it does not put any side at greater disadvantage, it does not care which side has the better military or is stronger. It was intended to protect the defenseless -civilians, EVERYONE’S civilians -as much as possible while both sides bring the conflict to as a rapid a conclusion as possible. It is NOT a suicide pact though. One side is NOT restricted from going after its enemy just because the enemy -which didn’t sign it anyway -violates as much as possible every applicable provision in it.

    Under the Geneva Conventions using civilians buildings to hide weapons of war, launch military attacks or plan military operations strips them entirely of ANY civilian protections. In other words, no one gets to launch attacks on their enemy from a school and then try to claim civilian protections -they turned it into a legitimate military target the moment THEY used it to launch an attack. NO EXCEPTIONS. There are NO safe places from which one can carry out a war and launch attacks and then insist their enemy is not allowed to respond and must sit on their hands and allow themselves to be slowly picked off. That is a demand for suicide and NO nation signed up for suicide by signing the Geneva Conventions. Who in the right mind would be idiot enough to believe that if one side is weaker than their enemy, the other side is obligated to drag out the conflict by responding weakly too? That insures more dead. Hamas deliberately puts civilians at risk both by purposely attacking Israeli civilians (oh, but they’re just Jews and its ok to target THOSE civilians, right?) and doing the very thing that puts Palestinian civilians at greatest risk by launching attacks while hiding among them -and thereby immediately making a legitimate military target out of the entire area. Under the Geneva Conventions whoever hides among civilians while carrying out any kind of military operations and planning, whoever launches attacks from within normally protected civilian institutions likes schools, hospitals, mosques, private homes etc -is the ONLY one responsible when civilians are killed when their enemy strikes back at them. Get that one yet? HAMAS is 100% responsible for the Palestinian civilian dead because THEY put them at risk in the first place, THEY deliberately and knowingly made their entire neighborhoods and civilian buildings legitimate military targets -and Israel did the humane thing by warning the civilians to get out of the region because their response could not avoid them as well. But under the Geneva Conventions, they weren’t obligated to do that before striking back. The idea here is to DISCOURAGE combatants from hiding among and using civilian buildings to launch attacks -not reward them by going into a huffy rage blaming the wrong party for it. It doesn’t matter how many people gang up and insist if Hamas launches attacks from inside civilian areas it somehow means Hamas gains civilian protections -it doesn’t, they don’t. There are NO safe areas or buildings from which one side gets to wage war and the other side is banned from striking back. NOT EVER for ANY nation. No one fights war that way, no one will ever fight that way -it is a demand for suicide and no nation has agreed to sit on its hands and let the enemy pick off their citizens just because they are the weaker combatant. The demand Israel commit national suicide is a very popular demand by the anti-Semitics of the world, always demanding the rules be changed for Jews, even if it means THEIR death -when they demand no one else in the world to do so.

    Israel isn’t responsible for the civilians deaths, they aren’t deliberately targeting civilians -they are attacking legitimate military targets after Hamas MADE them legitimate targets by using and exploiting civilians. Hamas, by using civilian buildings and deliberately targeting Israeli civilians, is guilty of war crimes. Israel by choosing to defend itself and go after the civilian buildings and regions being used to launch military operations and attacks -is abiding by the Geneva Conventions. Interesting how many rant and rail against Israel for the truly evil actions of Hamas -and thereby reward Hamas and encourage it to keep doing it. So yeah, Hamas wants and needs dead Palestinian civilians because THOSE are the ones that get the Jew haters of the world upset. Not the dead Israeli civilians. NO outrage no matter how often Israeli kids are DELIBERATELY targeted and murdered -because hey, born Jewish means they deserved it, right?

    Being the less strong adversary in a conflict gives NO ONE any right to hide among and use civilians. It does NOT provide combatants with civilian protections -instead it only strips civilians of THEIR protections! And all civilized, moral people know this. The dishonest, evil, immoral and those blinded by a raging anti-Semitism -don’t care. But then to turn around and blame your enemy for your own evil actions only proves Hamas WANTS dead Palestinian civilians and it is THE only reason they do it. It is for the anti-Semitics in the world looking for the fastest reason to go on another spittle laden anti-Semitic rant. Anti-semitism is ingrained into Europe’s really ugly history and it cyclically builds and builds until it lethally explodes -always resulting in lots of dead Jews. Like clockwork. Today the level of anti-semitism in Europe is as high as it was prior to WWll. Always using the same canards to stoke the evil anti-Semitism too, no matter how often those canards are proven to be such. It isn’t anti-ISRAEL sentiment -it is anti-Semitism and the proof is the fact so many are already targeting Jews in Europe using what is going on in Israel as an excuse. Even though those Jews aren’t Israelis and aren’t controlling what the Israeli government does.

    Easy to figure out who the REAL good guys are. If Hamas and other extremists stop lobbying rockets at Israel and Israeli civilians -we all know what would happen. If Israel stops defending itself -we also know what will happen and the measure of evil in the world is the number who salivate at the possibility that might happen.

  • getyourfactsstraight

    This is not accurate information. Israel gained it’s independence because Palestinian control was never wanted by Palestinian “authority,” therefore it never existed in the Gaza Strip or anywhere else in Israel

      You’ve lost my trust.

  • Elior Harush

    to all those who say we “kidnaps and tortures children”.

    I’m sure this guys have a few things to say about it.

    and I wanna add that I live in northern Israel and I served in the Israeli army as a medic, and I have saved a few Israeli lives as well as some Syrians and some Lebanese terrorists(Just to clarify Syrians are not terrorists, they were casualties of their civil war).
    now I know some of our soldiers can be Douchebag but as I know the vast majority of our soldiers are very nice and they strive for peace just like the most of you.

    Now let’s talk about the current operation.
    The current operation was started because the “lie” about kidnapped youth in June 12th is in fact true.
    In June 12th, the Israeli equivalent of 911 received a phone call from one of the kidnapped youth who managed to grab his phones for the last few minutes of his life.

    through the call, the dispatchers heard a few Arabic screams, a few gunshots, and than a song in Arabic.

    In June 30th, the bodies of 16 year old Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frenkel were found mutilated in a field near Hebron(an Arabic city).

    During this time and until today there were and there are bombings from the Gaza strip all across the south border and the center of Israel, and recently in some parts of the north borders as well.

    the missiles might not have the best accuracy but they are meant to kill so don’t be wrong

    In July 8th our governor decided to start the operation which is occurring now.

    As for the ceasefires and kills.

    In July 14, Israel initiated a ceasefire which lasted for 48 hours, all this time we were bombed by the Hamas.

    Another false statement I found in this article is that 134 Israeli children were killed since the year 2000.

    No, during the years 2000-2005 alone, in what we call the second intifada, there were over 450 deaths of Israeli children by terrorists(I just wanna say that about 50 of those were Israeli Arabic killed by their own brothers).

    using civilians as human shields, wow the ignorance of that sentence shocked me, never In my life I heard of anything like that happening and I don’t know how this thing idea even came to existence.

    Another thing I like to add, and that thing came from hostility I received from other tourist from different nationalities from my travels(and I’ve had a lot) is that there is a misconception that we Israeli Jews hate Muslims, no we don’t hate Muslims just like we don’t hate Christians, we hate only the specific group of Muslims who are actually terrorists which I think Is pretty legit.
    to sum it all up, I know a lot of you won’t believe and I don’t blame you for that, but please, before you take sides and judge us, please look up the real facts and try to read more from both sides cause you might find something that you don’t know and it could completely change your mind, so take your time and really read.
    sorry if my English is wrong and please don’t be ignorant!

  • Ken O

    Unlike Israel, Hamas tries to kill as many Israelis as possible. Hamas aims at civilian areas. Hamas doesn’t give warnings to Israelis. It’s not for lack of trying that they don’t kill more. If a few of their rockets hit populated buildings the numbers would be even. Hamas doesn’t ask their citizens to go into shelters but instead demands they ignore Israel’s warnings and stand on the roofs. Hamas refused, again and again the ceasefires.

  • Aluze

    I saw some meaningful discussion eventually drowned out by racist trolls and religious food fights.
    Seems it boils down to:
    Care!
    Don’t care!
    doesn’t matter.
    Violent or nonviolent, justified or villainous, resistant and active or obedient and accpeting, the Palestinians and their land ARE going to be eradicated, and no one in a position to change that wants it any other way.

  • venicementor

    I cannot believe some of this convoluted bullshit you have written. Unbelievable! Are you an Arab? A retarded one at that??

    The majority of this is exaggerated. Everything Israel has done is sekf defence. It was there land from the start. They are people too and dont deserve this. How would u feel in their position. Let the people kill u and just do nothing. Or would u fight back.

  • StillBelieveinPeace

    Here is the bottom line: I don’t care whose historical claim is better than whose or who’s done what to whom – there’s plenty of blame to go round. The fact is, there are two peoples living in this land, and neither one is leaving anytime soon. Reluctant roommates, if you will. So, what would be the sensible thing to do? LEARN TO COEXIST. Stop aiming at “Greater Israel” or “Palestine from the River to the Sea.” I would counsel the Palestinians to watch the film “Gandhi” and imitate his example. Just imagine… a huge mass of unarmed Palestinian civilians marching peacefully to Jerusalem, singing songs and lying down in front of the Parliament to demand a state… they’d have their state inside 6 months — Israel would no longer have any grounds to deny them. Stop blowing all the millions from Qatar on attack tunnels into Israel, spend it instead on building the institutions of your state. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Both sides are guilty of this. Stop the insanity and come to a practical arrangement, a modus vivendi. No, neither side will probably learn to love the other, but peace is possible with the right leadership. And no, I don’t think this is naive. Look at the French and the Germans, or the Protestants and Catholics in Ireland – once these were sworn enemies, now they’re not. Fanaticism is the problem here. Bring in the moderates! That is, if there are any left on either side…Israel and Palestine could be a flourishing paradise.

  • Ron Goldman

    The lying jews are trying to justify their terrorism again. They stole Palestine from the residents in 1948 after terrorist activities from the middle 1930s. They have only held onto what they stole by dint of engaging in an endless war of terrorism since then. That they own the majority of the world’s media and are deeply ingrained in the decision making processes of most western nations is the reason they are getting away with this brutality.

    THE JEWS ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE

    The original Jews 2000 years ago were black African. Abraham, ancestor of the Hebrews, was from Chaldea; the ancient Chaldean were Black. Like Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the lineage of Ethiopian Emperor, Haile Selassie also goes back to Judah — through Solomon/Queen of Sheba and King David. Roman historian Tacitus wrote that many of his time believed that the Jews “were a race of Ethiopian origin.

    The Bible classifies the Ethiopians and Jews together, “Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the Lord.” (Amos 9:7) Black Paul is mistaken for an “Egyptian” and declares himself to be a “Jew.” (Acts 21:37-39, 22: 2,3) That the Jews got their language, religion and culture from the Canaanites and Sumerians through Babylon, is well documented by historians. The original ancient Hebrew alphabet was identical to that of the Phoenicians. “Semitic languages” are really dialectical variants of African languages. The word Semitic came from the word Shem who is the son of Noah.

    If the original Jews were Black, where did white Jews come from?

    There are the Khazars and became “Jews” in 740 A.D. They hailed from eastern Europe and Russia now known as Ukraine.

    Khazars make up over 90% of the so-called “Jews!” in the World. These are the Dayan, Meir, Spielberg, Einsteins, Zuckerberg, Netanyahu, Soros.

    The “JEWS” today are NOT really Jews, and therefore not recipients of GOD’s promises to Israel

    The 1948 re-establishment of the NATION OF ISRAEL is NOT a fulfillment of prophecy.

    They are not the ‘Chosen Ones” and definitely not the descended from the house of Israel! Israeli.

    They do not have Semitic bloodline and should not occupy Israel nor Gaza.

    They are the Zionist!

  • Henry

    Those fanatics that side with Israel they do so because they
    believe that God will bless them as stated by their false messiah John Hagee,
    who said, “Israel is important for Bible believing Christians because Israel
    is the focus of the Bible, beginning from Genesis running through the entirety of
    the scriptures. God says in genesis 12 to bless the people of Israel. God says
    in Psalms 132, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper that loves
    you.” However, all the covenants that God made with
    the nation of Israel in the Torah became obsolete with the coming of Jesus
    Christ, who is the new and final covenant between God and men. The real
    nation of Israel is composed of the Church of Jesus Christ or God’s Chosen
    People born from above.

    On the other hand, the physical and fraudulent nation of Israel
    founded in 1948 by the warmongering Talmudic Zionist Jews is
    guilty as charged, for the systematic and widespread murder and
    extermination of the innocent men, women, and children of Palestine.

    The people of Palestine lived there for thousands of years,
    but in 1948, the offspring of Satan or the warmongering Talmudic Zionist Jews
    or Christ killers began to displace, kill and steal the land from the
    Palestinians in order to accommodate their demonic minions. Hence, the Zionist
    Jews are the invaders, not the other way around. No one with a conscience would
    want to live in stolen land socked with the blood of its previous owners. Right
    in line with what Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I
    have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”

    why doesn’t the Palestinians leave that area and live somewhere else? There seems to be plenty of desert and space very wide around Israel. Why don’t the Palestinians start their new home far away from Gaza? It does seem that the Israelites have Israel thriving and with more creativity etc. than the Palestinians, so can the Arabs/Palestinians just start new somewhere else rather than this destructive action?

  • Emma

    Look at the comments on this article, Washington’s Blog. You should be ashamed to have posted it, considering that it renders such unwarranted hatred towards Jews in general, and falsely identifies statements of opinion as facts. Distorting facts regarding a matter such as this is unacceptable. Consider: There are over a million Arab Israelis living in Israel. That is over twenty percent of the Israeli population, making Israel, proportionally, the most diverse country in the Middle East. Most Palestinians originally left Palestine because their Arab surrounding Arab countries told them that they would be able to return to their homes after they had demolished the newly created state of Israel in the Arab-Israeli war of 1948. However, since, this never happened, because Israel defeated the joint forces of Egypt, Jordan and Syria, enormous numbers of Palestinians were left without homes- and yet outside of Jordan, most of these nations have never genuinely offered to absorb displaced Palestinian citizens. Gaza, an “occupied” territory has been officially “unoccupied” since 2005 when Israel forcibly removed hundreds of thousands of Jews, despite enormous contention over the matter, in order to return the land to Palestinians. Israel left millions of dollars of green houses to help kickstart the Palestinian economy and they were quite simply destroyed. Palestinians have elected Hamas- an internationally recognized terrorist group, regardless of what you claim, to be the leaders of their territory. Poor leadership has led to poor decision making time and again. It is extremely sad and frankly disgusting that innocents on both sides die in the clash, however the distinction is that one side uses its people as a political pawn, and are willing to sacrifice life in order to undermine the sovereignty of another country, and the other focuses all of its energy- not in murder or intentional offensive attack, as you seem to claim, but in SELF-PROTECTION, and that side is Israel. That Israel has lost so few civilians THIS TIME is a result of its having spent an enormous amount of money and time on creating protection for its people. Hamas utilizes the money given for humanitarian aid not to build protective shelters or provide its people with medical aid, but instead to buy weaponry. There needs to be a peace accord- a two state solution is widely supported by most Israelis, if you look at the polls. However Israel continues to monitor the West Bank and Gaza’s air and sea because of Hamas, not because they want to. It is a waste of monetary funding and lives, and only occurs because Israel wants to protect its own citizens, who have been murdered by this terrorist group in the past. And these rockets, which you essentially describe as crappy scrap metal rockets, are much more than that, as anyone who has seen them can attest- let us recognize the amount of money Israel spends defending its citizens from these rockets, and question why it would do so otherwise. Israel does not intentionally target civilians or children- that is the most horrifically untrue statement. The majority of Gaza is under the age of 18, and Hamas openly espouses using the human shield tactic, so between those two factors, many children die, and it is extremely sad. Anyone can look up the facts and see that the majority of these fats are indeed untrue, and irresponsible journalism is a terrible thing.

    The real problem is religion you people Christians Muslims and Jews are responsible for a lot of the worlds problems. You get so caught up in rituals, traditions, and tribalism that you lose sight of what really is important and that is love for you fellow brothers and sisters regardless of skin color or creed. Religion divides people and teaches them concepts that lack substance and truth.That is why all your religions are on fire right now; Muslims strap bomb to their chest, priest are molesting kids, and Jews are massacring people for land that belongs to nobody but God. religions claim to be able to save the world but can not even save its people. Most of the worlds population is brainwashed into believing, fighting,dying for fantastic religious stories. How could something claiming to be holy and bring you closer to god be responsible for more deaths than anything else in history? the irony in this would be hilarious if it wasn’t sooo sad and depressing. I have no dog in this Muslim Jewish conflict, but no one people own any land and until we as a world learn how to share in resources, riches, land and problems history is doomed to repeat itself…..

  • Fed up

    If you delve into any Palestinian family’s family tree , you will see that in one or two generations past, the family was from all parts of different Arab countries, not the area that they call Palestine. So, exactly how it is THEIR country, I’m not sure that I understand. The Muslim world must encourage the Palestinians to cause as much bad press in the world for Israel as they can. The other day I received an email from a friend who said “Look, this family has such bad luck”. It was a picture of a murdered family with distinct features, one picture showed children dead and lying on the ground and how strange was it that the second picture was a duplicate of the first. The first picture was of a family killed by Syrian bombs, the identical picture said these people were killed by Israeli bombs. The Palestinians use everyone and everything including planting bomb storage and ammunition storage in places where a maximum amount of children and civilians are so that if Israel tries to get at their ammunition storage, they can say, Look what Israel did. They killed our children. I’m sure Israel does not store their bombs in day cares as Palestinians do. The Palestinians complain that Israel has “it all” and they are poor and without? How about channeling more of their dollars into improving their living conditions instead of putting it into terrorist groups and terrorism. I often wonder if Israel would have been created in Africa or S. America , as originally considered, who would the Muslims hate and blame all their problems on then?

  • Fed up

    And if I may add one more point. Within the Arab countries, Muslims are killing Muslims. And then it comes back to, whatever is happening here MUST be Israel’s fault. They have to learn to take Israel out of the equation. I’m sure most Muslims are peaceful and wonderful but unfortunately, the jihadists and terrorists make the peaceful ones irrelevant. Unfortunately, in the western world , Islam is generally classified as a religion of terrorists. Sad but true . Maybe they need to concentrate more on being a religion of peace and stop terrorism amongst their own people. You NEVER hear a Muslim group saying anything against any act of terrorism. They are often shown dancing in the streets and celebrating death and destruction of their adversaries.

  • Billy Kravitz

    Of course the situation is very sad, but Israel found herself in control of West Bank and Gaza and Golan after wars started by nationals from those areas attempting to destroy her. I DO believe Palestinians deserve a safe secure free independent country though… You think Hamas wants that, or a theocratic, militarized fiefdom in Palestine? Look what Egypt did to them…. If it looked like nobody in region was going to shot at anybody (on all sides) peace and meaningful economic development would percolate all over real fast. If everyone keeps this ‘We can do no wrong and they can do no right’ thing going… not so fast… And I don’t think (aside from relatively small groups of extremists embedded in all factions) most of the people involved truly ‘hate’ each other. Many, when they get to know each other actually get along.. This is like a huge lumbering juggernaut rolling over people, years and aspirations that no one wants to stop. … Well, that’s all I have to say. I hope conditions improve and I hope EVERYONE’S safety and rights are respected.

  • Linda Jaffe Oliver

    Hamas complains that their people are starving, have no where to go and need help. But what have they done with all the aid they have received over the years? If Hamas truly cared about its people, it would have used the money to buy food, set up good education, and tried to improve technology that could improve the lives of the people it governs. It would have also been able to build bomb shelters to protect it’s people, and stockpile necessities in the event of an attack on their people. Instead, they used the aid to help them attack Israel with giving little thought to their own people. They complain that they have no defenses except to fight and that is why they have had so much loss of life over the past 2 weeks, compared to Israel. But Israel, knowing that an attack can come at any time has built a strong defense system, including bomb shelters and the iron dome. Israel is also a leader in technology. There is no reason why the Palestinians could not have used the millions of dollars in aid to build up this type of infrastructure.

    Truth hurts ad this story has very little of it if any.
    We have seen the human shields mused by hamas , we know Israel let the people know before they went looking for weapons and tunnels.
    We watc t.v. daily and see the rockets being launched from gaza into Israel
    We know hamas refused to take part in the cease fires
    No one in the middle east wants the palestinian people , why is that?
    A dude from rome invented palestine because he hated the jewish people.
    The u.s. supports Israel and should forevermore
    And lets not forget all the aid Israel gives to gaza and they get nothing back , food , electricity , medical , building materials etc.
    It was in a jewish hospital the President of palestines wife was in to have her operation earlier this year.
    It is hamas and other islamic terrorists who continue to attack Israel and its allies.every single day.
    This time around more countries are supporting Israel , why , because they see what the truth is.
    Look at iraq , syria , egypt and all over the middle east , it is islamics killing , raping , causing mass destruction and they are moving all over the planet , africa is another place where islam is destroying lives.
    Truth is ISRAEL will win.

  • LogicAl

    This article is full of perpetuated lies. The list is too long, so I’ll go with two:
    * Israel also kidnaps and tortures children, including by keeping them in outdoor cages, over night, in winter.

    BULLSHIT. Why not add the “Blood Libel” as part of this bullshit statement?

    * In 1948, the people who wanted to form a Jewish state carried out a massive terror and ethnic cleansing campaign against the occupants of Palestine, expelling about half of them (750,000) from their land and into concentrated areas (Gaza and West Bank).

    BULLSHIT. The Arab nations surrounding Israel – namely Jordan, Syria & Egypt – told any Arabs living in Israel to get out to avoid being hurt/killed as they drove the Jews into the sea. Well, those Arabs who left bet on the wrong horse; that horse lost BIG TIME. And so, the room those “quitters” left behind was room available for the Jews in other Arab/Persian nations facing pogroms to come to in Israel. The “Palestinian Refugees” were born out of Jordan/Syria/Egypt’s misstep and THOSE countries should carve out their own land for the people to call home.

    Why don’t you spend your time better documenting that Hamas is a terrorist organization of cowards who launch attacks from mosques, hospitals and schools with absolute intent of putting civilians in harms way so as to either sway Israel from retaliating or cause Israel to hurt civilians that Hamas will then publicize to TRY to make Israel out to be the bad guy.

  • Slippers McEwan

    I have to ask this question……How much did Bush II, Clinton or Bush I contribute to Israel?

  • saveus

    The fact is it does not matter what you give the philistines they are a terrorist period. They deal with terrorism so that makes them terrorist every time you give them something they want more. These people are animals and do belong in cages like the dogs they are. If they really wanted peace then they would not keep with the rhetoric of death to israel. For all that means is death to the philistines. This goes way back before the jilling of 3 teeneagers or 2 soldiers which by the way is much different solders are what you do kill not civilians that is another thing that Palestinians cannot accept. They put their on children sleeping next to bombs who does that except a sick animal not a human being. So to me i say kill every single palestinian that is in Western garza and chop the head off of the snake and never stop until the head is cut off and not moving.

  • tbenton62

    I think the writer of this article seemed to have left out half the facts. Last I checked Israel was not in Gaza, they were not bombing Gaza, it was Gaza that started firing rockets at civilians to create terror. Seems the author did not even have the common sense to look at the West Bank and Gaza. There is one stark contrast that separates the two.
    The West Bank does not attack and kidnap Israeli’s as a rule (the killing of the three boys was out of their character in the last couple years), but Gaza has been doing it for yeas, and they continue this practice. The West Bank is not run by Hamas and because of this they are not firing rockets at Israel, and guess what, Israel is not bombing them.
    Common sense tells you the solution to stopping this violence is stop firing rockets.
    The rest, I could get into that, but there is no illegal occupation. To occupy someplace you have to have taken it from the people. Last I checked there was never a Palestine nation, there has never been a king, queen, president or prime minister. Even the Palestinians in a legal brief to the UN (the story was broke by Al Jeezera), they openly admit that the land was never stolen, deeds were passed for money. Guess only in that area purchasing land for money is considered stealing. http://www.ajtransparency.com/en/projects/thepalestinepapers/201218203525218283.html

    Not a lot of facts here, mostly fiction and historical inaccuracies. The first time Palestine ever in world history existed as a sovereign state is in 2001. So the maps you posted are completely bogus. Prior to 1947 The region of Palestine (which is comprised of modern day Syria, Jordan, The State of Palestine, and parts of Israel) was a British Colony following World War 1. Prior to that it was part of the Ottoman Empire. In 1947 a State of Palestine was created by land gifted from the UN via Britain, however it was an emirate of Jordan (a newly created arab country).

      These so called terrorists were actually founded by Israel Zionists. They sit here crying wolf and act like theyre being terrorized by Hamas.

Educate yourself on how Israel created Hamas: http://middleeast.about.com/od/israelandpalestine/a/me090126.htm

      Most importantly, majority of the Jews (Zionists) dont belong. These people were forcefully converted to Judiasm under the King of Turkish-Monglo Khazars in 740 AD. Yeah! That means the majority of the Jews in Israel have a false claim of idenity of being indiginous to the land of Israel, and have no Jewish blood or background which can claim homage or roots to this land that they stole!

    What not mention Egypt who blockaded Gaza until 2011?

  • Henry

    Israeli Senator Lindsey Graham, stationed in the U.S. Senate in Washington D.C. said, “No cease fire should be pushed on Israel until Hamas is removed as the governing entity in Gaza, because the bottom line problem here is Hamas agenda to destroy the State of Israel, so why would you
    have a cease fire with a group of people who want to wipe Israel off the map.Get them out of the way and give the Palestinian people a new start for peace.”

    Senator Lindsey Graham and whore of the Zionist Jews couldn’t be more deluded to believe that Israel is merely protecting itself when in 1948, the warmongering Talmudic Zionist Jews or the offspring of Satan or Christ killers began to kill, displace, and steal the land from the
    Palestinians that live there for thousands of years, in order to accommodate
    their demonic minions. Hence, the Zionist Jews are the invaders, not the other
    way around. Right in line with what Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes only
    to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it
    to the full”

    Zionist whore, and Israeli Senator Lindsey Graham is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Obama’s Cabinet is infected with Jewish vermin holding Israeli citizenships, and so
    was the George W. Bush Cabinet and the William J. Clinton Cabinet all the way back to the Woodrow Wilson’s era, at which time the Talmudic Zionist Jewish Bankers betrayed the American people while they slept by establishing the illegal Federal Reserve System, and the illegal Federal
    Income Tax. The Zionist fake Jewish vermin also installed every Presidential puppet in the White House and their respective Presidential Cabinets, which they filled mostly with Zionist Jewish appointees. In full view of the treasonous and cowardly Christian Clergy of America Self Gagged under the 501 (c3) Tax-Exempt Code.

    This is what these Zionist fake Jews think of the Goyim or Gentiles written in their diabolical Talmud: Baba Mezia 114 b, “The Goyim are not humans. They are beasts.”

    Tosapath, Jebamoth 94 b, “If you eat with a Goy it is the same as eating with a dog.”

    Sanhedrin 74 b, “Sexual intercourse between the Goyim is like sexual intercourse between animals.”

    Soferim 15, “Even the best of the Goyim should be killed.”

    Shulkan Arukh, Yoreh De ‘ah, 158, Hebrew Edition only, “When it comes to a Goyim in peace times, one may harm him indirectly, for instance, by removing a ladder after he has fallen into a crevice.”

    Americans must abolish the Federal Reserve Bank, and they must enforce Executive Order 11110, and they must revert to United States Notes, and they must cut off all aid to the illegal and counterfeit State of Israel, and they must make them repay the 233.7 billions dollars the U.S. gave the Zionist Jews over a period of six decades, and in addition, Americans must demand that Israel Return the Occupied Territories to the Palestinian people. Not an easy task, but achievable if Americans act with singleness of hearts and minds.

  • Truth

    I never read a bigger piece of garbage in my whole life. Your “facts” are just wrong and one sided. At first I thought it was a joke…children put in cages, seriously?!. You have a sick mind and should seek professional help immediately. Hamas is a terrorist organization with the sole purpose of wiping out Israel. All innocent civilian deaths are the fault of Hamas & Hamas alone. Hamas took their millions in international aid and instead of building shelters & hospitals for their people they built bombs and tunnels to terrorize Israel. Curious, where is your outrage toward Syria since they’ve killed 1000′s of Palestinian refugees in their country? Oh, that’s right, your selective indignation is reserved only for Jews.

    Frankly, I don’t know how Israelis live with themselves. Even disregarding the Palestinian’s rightful claim to the land, which country would so brutally attack an entire population?

    It seems when Israel is the aggressor, all that is necessary is to do the minimum to protect civilians-like dropping leaflets advising Palestinians to go elsewhere. Where do you expect them to go when you maintain a blockade around Palestine. An ordinary man (ie. Not a politician or militant) can’t even leave Palestine. And since Palestine is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, any attack, other than the most limited and precise is illegal under international law.

    And, say, if Israel argues they they have had rockets fired at them (whether or not it actually does any harm) and thus have the right to retaliate, then what about Israel building on occupied lands? Or what about destroying Palestinian homes or shooting dead innocent Palestinian children who were simply minding their own business.

    Israel is a bundle of hypocritical contradictions. It says it’s the only democracy in the Middle East and this deserves to be protected. Well then what of democracy when more than 90% of the world votes against Israel at the UN?

    Israel bizarrely justifies its attacks by using the slightest of infringements that you’d think that Israel is completely unblamable. Yet Israel is the only country in the world currently developing settlements on occupied Palestinian land. Why doesn’t Israel stop breaking the law themselves if they want others to do the same?

    Why does Israel go so far to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear technology when it’s an open secret that Israel has undeclared nuclear weapons?

    I’m angry at all of these pro Israeli posters here who seem to be incapable of arguing based on facts. Why are all of your own illegal activities invisible to you? Is it because some book says so?

    Israel is the greatest pariah state of our times. More brutal wars have been fought due to differences in ideology but none have been as racist or as inhumane as Israel’s plundering of Palestine.

    • William James Woodward

      I agree completely with you. Even by Israel’s own official figures since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge only 48 Israeli soldiers and 3 civilians have been killed, while in the 4 weeks of this offensive 1600 Palestinians, mostly women, children and elderly people have been slaughtered. Just think about it… If Israel shot down a Boeing 747 every week for 4 weeks the whole world, including the USA, would be rightfully calling them a TERRORIST NATION. What’s the difference here? Israel is protecting themselves, RIGHT! Do they think I fell off the turnip truck yesterday? The US government’s support (military and financial) makes them complicit in the ongoing terrorism too, make no mistake about it.

    Robert, you need to get a life and stop fabricating unjustifiable nonsense. As you know, Israel has one of the BEST human rights records of ANY country, and anyone who is relatively informed on the conflict knows this. You can safely stop writing about a topic you obviously know zero about.

    if we are talking biblical which we all should be for we should be looking as a Christian. I myself am a Christian i believe it are duty to protect israel we all the might we have. if Israel goes down we go down at least that is the way I want it to be. For God as said the Jews is the chosen people and israel is the jewish nation that no man can take from them. the bible said that a nation would be born in a single day for thousands of years we all wondered how could a nation be built in one day. in 1947 the little sliver of land in the Mideast called Israel was made a nation by a vote so in one day they became a nation jsut like the bible said, but that is not all it as gave 1000 of predictions and every one as ca,e to pass, but the devil blinds the world of this fact, so we continue to struggle to destroy what god as already said no man will destroy so who they battle is God I believe I will stay on God’s side. Amen

    My Jesus says love Israel defend Israel with our lives. If you are against Israel you are against God. No my God Jesus is not for no one being killed, but if you think for one moment that the Palestine people would not kill every Jew if the shoe was on a different foot, but the shoe is not so for that reason we the Jewish nation should kill the enemy which in this case the palestine people and Humas. Every single one of them must be killed to eradicate the disease of hate.

Then burn all the carcasses and the entire worlds problem will be solved. The Jewish population is a disgrace of the human race they are hated worldwide. Hitler took these bastards because they are not human and gassed them and torched them and made them his little bitches.

  • Nola

    This article is ridiculously biased.

    Disregarding Hamas’ weapons as “pathetic scrap metal rockets” as if to imply these aren’t deadly projectiles being shot in Israel’s direction with ill intent is disingenuous.

    Acting as if Hamas doesn’t use human shields by building tunnels and weapons caches under schools, mosques and markets is again disingenuous.

    Acting as if the blockade is only stopping food and medicine. That’s an unfortunate side-effect of attempting to prevent access to advanced weapons and even nuclear weapons which could threaten Israel’s existence.

    There’s two sides to every story, and I fear that unfortunately for both stories there will never be a happy ending. Neither side is right, but neither side will admit that they’re wrong. And quite frankly, I don’t think there will ever be peace in the Middle East whether Israel exists or not. Religious rule is dated and has proven itself to be violent and also stifling towards societal progression.

    • William James Woodward

      Nola, sorry what is ill intended and disingeuous is describing this as anything but Goliath trying to wipe out David. We’ve all seen hundreds and hundreds of photos of the heavy weaponry that the IDF has, yet we haven’t seen ONE of heavy weapons in Palestine, because they simply don’t exists. We’ve all seen hundreds and hundreds of photos of the colossal destruction in Gaza, so where are the photos of similiar destruction in Israel???? They don’t exist either, but you can bet your bottom dollar if they did they’d be splashed all over the media. Sorry, but you’re either just plain stupid to believe this BS you’re spouting, or you’re a flat out bare faced liar, which is it?

  • Hood

    The map of the steady increasing scale of the expansion of Israel beyond the 1967 borders into palestine is the single lagest piece of credible evidence here. To think that this invasion has happened without mass civilian Palestinian casualties is burying your head in the sand. I have jewish heritage…I shudder to think what that map will look like in 2050.

  • Gil from Israel

    How can any american stand for it, instead of supporting Israel?

  • William James Woodward

    It is incredible how gullible the American people are when it comes to what their government is doing in Israel and what they tell them the situation is. If ANY OTHER nation on earth was doing what Israel is doing they’d be formally declared a TERRORIST NATION instantly by the United States. Yet, Israel is not, simply because it is a strategic geographical location for US interests. That is why the US government has continually given Israel complete support and also arms, military and financial aid. Essentially Israel is just doing the US government’s dirty work so that Americans can keep their hands clean.

    Israel insists that Jews have the “right of return”. Right of return to what, to where? The only Israeli Jews are those relatively few who have been born in the State of Israel since it was created by taking the land from the Palestinians by force in 1948. The Jews that began immigrating to Israel from Europe and other countries en masse from that point on aren’t even remote descendents of the Arab Jews of two thousand years ago. And what about the Palestinians’ right of return to the lands they were expelled from?

    Israel says (and the US reiterates) they have the right to defend themselves. Defend themselves from whom? Israel has military aircraft, tanks, heavy armaments (all provided by the US) and a massive army which is funded largely by the US as well. Defend themselves from a bunch of rag-tag resistance fighters who haven’t got heavy weapons. There isn’t an air base in the Gaza so they couldn’t use aircraft if they wanted to! We’ve been inundated with photos and video of the massive destruction in the Gaza, it has virtually been levelled to the ground. If Israel had suffered any similar damage don’t Americans think that they media would be plastering photos of it everywhere? Of course they would. Have you seen any photos of heavy weaponry in Palestine? No, and you never will. Have you seen any photos of mass destruction in Israel? No, because none exists!

    Defend itself from whom? Women, children and elderly people who have made up the bulk of the 1600 people already killed in the Gaza since the beginning of Operation Defensive Edge? Considering that in total only 48 Israeli soldiers and 3 civilians have been killed in the same time period the amount of overkill is obvious. Still the United States government is funding and arming Goliath to stomp on David, the giant squashing the ant under foot! Pure genocide and nothing else.

    Israel could possibly claim that they struck a school operated by the United Nations by mistake. Well if they had only done so once, maybe that lame excuse would fly. Striking the same school a second time was clearly no mistake, it was a deliberate and planned attack which killed even more defenseless children. The Israel government has the unmitigated gall to say that they’ve gone to extraordinary measures to prevent civilian deaths. Pure crap! They have deliberately targeted civilians and will continue to do so, for no other reason than to totally demoralizes the Palestinians.

    Why do Americans think that EVERY nation on the UN Human Rights Council voted to investigate Israel for war crimes, except the US? Those nations who are simply lapdogs to the US simply abstained from voting, so as not to hurt Uncle Sam’s delicate little feelings and suffer reprisals. Yet, they were at least courageous enough not to come out on the side of Israel and support the terrorism blindly like the US does.

    Why is it that Americans can’t see that in the 60 plus years since Israel was imposed on the Middle East that there hasn’t been one single decade that Israel hasn’t waged war on someone and anyone? Their record of aggression is clear.

    I want to make it absolutely clear here that I’m talking about the GOVERNMENT of the State of Israel, not about the Jewish faith. I know that in the mind of many people if you say anything negative about Israel you’re attacking the Jewish faith. That is absurd. It’s no more true than saying that if you say something bad about China that you’re attacking Buddhism or if you say something bad about Pakistan that you’re attacking Sikhism. Yet, they can’t separate the two clearly different and distinct issues in their own minds. So anybody that says anything bad about Israel, to them is a Jew hater. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’m not Jewish, nor am I Muslim, but I have numerous friends who are Jewish and others who are Muslim. I respect them all and treat them equally. I have no prejudices against anyone. What I do have prejudices against is the senseless SLAUGHTER of innocent men, women and children being carried out by any nation.

    Israel is a terrorist nation, by all of the United States’ own definitions. I say that if the United States continues to blindly support and finance a terrorist nation, then they too must be considered a terrorist nation. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. If you support terrorism then you’re also a terrorist.

    It is amazing how incredibly ignorant people are so dumb downed these days. It amazes me that people will believe anything that is told to them. My guess is that it is easier for most not to pick up a book and read or truly look at the treatise that have been made the whole treatise. Not the lines being picked out for you or theirs that have been manipulated by the Arab representatives. The Palastinians were put at the border for one reason only to help perpetuate more Arab lies. Have you ever looked at it as something else? Hamas is a sorry group of weak people that make others live in fear. They are bully’s . They will not let these people escape. Have you seen any other Arab country come to these people defense? Have you seen them attempt to get these poor people out of the way, no you haven’t it is not that they can’t it is that they won’t. This is a plan of the Arabs not of the Israelis. The Israelis have tried to help them because their own people will not.
    These Arab extremists are telling Christian communities to leave or die if they do not switch their faith to Islam. My guess is that you are all sheep being led to the slaughter. You are okay with some one telling you who you should worship. You are okay with them taking over the world and telling you how to be, that women are nothing and should be covered and if you steal with your right Hand then that should be cut off.
    If you think the murder of three teenagers is a lie. There’s issues. So if somebody is a over Israel is a super power?! Wow! I have some swamp land to sell all of you!
    If you you look at the middle east like a pie Israel is a sliver. The rest is all Arab land. You reat think Israel is the superpower? Who has the oil then? Most arabs live in a poor state due to their brethren who so own the oil but do not share with their people.
    If you were a small country would you not learn to protect yourself?
    By he way the Jewish people have been there forever? They did not push anyone out. Remember Jesus? He was Jewish. Remember king David? Jewish.
    If you let Arabs take over Jerusalem, there wi be no Christian a way of worship, there will ve novitber jubs id worship but islam in the extreme, the Arabs that live there will no longer live in peace. If you do not believe what I am saying, and you choose to live in the dark, so be it

It is not the wish of the Israel to have to continual fight against people like you and you so called values and importance of life. All that would be in your agenda is to abolish the Nation of Israel as hard as you will try it cannot happen for it is not written. This as already played out and the Palestinens and all of the harers of Irael lose. The killing as just started this very thousand will soon turn into a few hundred million very shortly.

  • David

    Tell a few truths, mix in as many lies as you want, spin it and present it as credible. I will just comment on the demographics:
    - In 1867 Mark Twain described Palestine as desolate and hardly met a soul.
    - In 1947 Palestinans were told to leave the land by Egypt and Syria to make way for armies that would crush the Jews. Most of the refugees are therefore people who voluntarily vacated the land. It was only many years later the forceful expulsion story was spun.
    - In a recent video I heard a Hamas leader plead to Egyptians for help by saying we are all the same people, we migrated from Egypt, Yemen and Saudi….not exactly been there for a millennia then?
    - Finally, I like the demographic maps, but why arbitrarily start in 1946? Let’s go back as far as we can, to say 3,000 BC when King David took Jerusalem. The maps would then show Jewish areas expand, contact and expand several times over 5 millennia BUT never extinguished.

  • fdsaffaf

    Excellent article. I agree wholeheartedly

  • what is true

    http://www.eretzyisroel.org/~jkatz/evidence.html I’ll be brief. in 1937 Haj Amin al-Husseini (AKA the leader of Palestinians before the royal commission on January 12th said that the Jews bought and hold 370 658.072 acres or 1,500,000 dunams. Present day Israel is only 11519.999999999998 acres so the question is who took who’s land. I hope no one comes and tries to claim to house that I bought…

  • what is true

    so the question is what happened between 1937 and 1946??? WWII the slaughtering of the Jews….

  • ash

    PLEASE! FOR GOD’s SAKE, PLEASE SEPERATE ALL JEWS FROM ISRAELI JEWS, WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE CONDEMNING ALL JEWS NOT EVEN ASSOCIATED WITH THAT COUNTRY AND TREATING THEM AS IF THEY WERE EQUALLY INVOLVED.

    FIRST OFF, WHY DON”T YOU ALL BITCH AND MOAN ABOUT AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, AND ANY SOUTH AMERICAN NATION (almost everyone) which was taken from the indigenous people of the land. It was only a generation before Israel happened that our beloved America participated in Genocide on the indians in order to get their land. The Aussies pushed the Natives out of the only habitible parts of Australia (the coast line all around the continent) and into the useless, red desert that is basically like 90% of Australia.

    SO WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARDS. WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD ON SELF DEFENSE. DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IF ISRAEL LET HAMAS HAVE FULLY FREE AND FUNCTIONING GOVERNMENT INCLUDING ARMY, DO YOU REALLY TRULY BELIEVE THEY WOULD STOP AND SAY THANK YOU< WE CAN NOW HAVE PEACE? They tried, they left Gazs in "05, destroyed many West Bank Settlements (which by the way, in any 2 state solution, those settlements currently in the west bank are within the new boarders that would be drawn up so no point in demolition of them although I'm against building any at all until there is peace and drawn up borders, it only causes fighting and makes Israel look unwilling.

    What about all the land not being used and the green houses for farming as an viable economy to whoever ran those but no, they destroyed them because JEWS made them and never rebuilt them.

    Yasser Arafat spit on the Camp David Peace Accord which was the closest we ever came and the ironic thing is, I don't know why he didn't take it, Israel was going to concede on many issues including giving them half of Jerusalem which Israel did not have access to until the Jordanians left in the 67 war. After the '48 war, for sake of peace, all jews in Jerusalem (multiple thousand year old jewish quarter where the people lived were forced out. THe wailing wall only had a little alley way and was the only place the jews could visit to pray there. Only after Jordan pulled out did they build a square to hold over a thousand people at once there destroying many Palestinian homes and businesses to make room. Oh well, that's what you get when you invade Israel.

    So look at it this way, ISRAEL would be much smaller today if they werne't constantly attacked by their Neighbors and the spoils of war go to the victor, just like every country that everyone here is from but you don't comdemn you countries at all. Especially us here in America and those in South America where all the land we live on was stolen. BUT THAT"S ALRIGHT< CHRISTIANS DID THE MASSACREING AND STEALING OF PRECIOUS LANDS. IF IT WERE JEWS, THEN AMERICAN AND SOUTH AMERiCA WOULD BE HORRIBLE ATROCIOUS SOCIETIES, at least according to most of you.

    ANOTHER FACT, THE JEWS WANTED PEACE ALL ALONG, THE ARABS WERE THE FIRST TO BRING VIOLENCED AND START THE CIVIL WAR, THE JEWS FROM EU HAD ENOUGH AFTER WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH, THEY DID NOT WANT A FIGHT, THEY JUST WANTED A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE AS PROMISED. (Madagascar was the first choice for ISRAEL but I don't think they would have agreed to that unless forced as Hitler played with the idea of mass expulsion to Madagascar before deciding on the Final Solution that so many here wish was a success.

    After reading most comments here, I understand not all of you are like this but quite a lot are just plain anti semites using current events as a wonderful excuse to demonize a group of people. You are all the same people who probably think a super tiny minority of the world controls it. I laugh so hard at you conspiricy theorists. (although I admit, Zionism has been in motion since late 1800's, it was nothing new after WW2, it had been discussed for nearly 60 years before Israel was formed.

    Yes, I agree the Jews believe that to be the Holy Land promised by god and says so in most every christian bible. What I'm getting at is the only reason the Bristish gave that land to the jews was to get them out of Europe as they still hated them. Nothing changed, just the mass killing but the views and anti-semetism florished. And why do almost all non jews lump every jew into the same class. I'm American, not israeli, but when people wave ISIS flags and yell slogans like KILL ALL THE JEWS, what did I do specifically or the millions of others like me who have not a thing to do with the Zionist movement?

    Another fact no one ever seems to mention, when the civil war was over in (what was is, 47, '48?), the new jewish govt. invited the Palestinians back to live in peace, they never intended to occupy lands that they refused to move out of and the fact that the entire world thought egypt, syria, and jordan would help by giving land but as we all know now, all 3 of those countries hate Palestine apparently through their actions. Even during muslim brotherhood control of Egypt, they still had a strangle hold on them although I admit they did blast the borders open for a minute. (Oh, I forgot lebanon). Point being, every peace effort (the jews aren't going anywhere so only peace will truly solve this , unless you are a hitler lover and want the final solution back) failed. Compare the west bank which lives in relative tranquility when looked at how people live in GAZA. Also, it's a super like that GAZA is most densley populated place in world, they have farms, swaths of land with pretty much nothing, Not my fault all the cities they built are all in pretty much one part of GAZA.

    THE UN ALSO HELP HAMAS STORE ROCKETS< WEAPONS< MUNITIONS, and acts liike they had no idea when they are caught. You here a 2 second report and then it's back to the evil jews.

    SO LEARN YOUR DAMN HISTORY,, almost all ARAB nations treated palestinians like complete shit before it became Israel. Before the jews moved in, they were the scapegoats of the region as most jews were expelled before they came back in the late '40s..

    There are christians, arabs (muslims and christians and a few jews) that live in Israel,not shitty gaza) and have equal rights, not second class and even have proportionate to populace in parliment. Why don't you mention every Arab or Persian country that has expelled or made Judaism illegal, punishible by death as long as anyone chooses to accuse them of trying to push their religion onto a muslim. Just takes an accustation as no one would believe a jew there, we are all lyers, aren't we? They pay a jew tax to be jewish and pray, they are second class citizens,hold no government positions, and that's only if they are even allowed to live there. As I said, most jews are banned from most muslim countries and I"m not talking Israeli's (I mean all jews). Also, there were many many polgroms far before ISRAEL was created in many Middle East countries and much of Europe.

    So what are jews supposed to do, live in a world where everyone wants them dead and it's always been that way, why is it so wrong to give them a place they can feel safe from discrimination from the like of you all (well most, not all)? IF not ISRAEL, where. And dont say Madagascar like HItler initially toyed with that idea, no one wants to live there. And to all you anti semetic brits, you need to take a hard look at what your government did to basically start this entire 40, 50 years of conflict. They are the main culprit as they were the one's to make Palestine (which was never even a real country just like Israel is a modern version of JUDEA) but I don't think the jews could have gone there if Britian didn't give it to them. So like I said, take a christian majority country, fuck up real bad, and then blame the jews as usual.

    Absurd. Israel doesn’t owe the world anything after you murdered 6 million and left another 3 million homeless. Landless. Stick them in the desert, Israel, they’ll starve…but we flourished joined by 840,000 displaced Jews driven from Arab countries, they absorbed while the Arabs turned away their own who were unwilling to stay as Israelis. Don’t call it a false narrative, I was there in 1933, 39 in Hebron, 43 in ashwitz and “BH” I was there for Israel’s modern rebirth after a promise 2000 years earlier, I am the Jew.

  • D Jackson

    It seems like folks forgot that the British were the ones that promised Israel a home for the Jews. And Palestine wouldn’t even be an issue today if the Romans lost against the Israelite’s. Palestine was never meant to be anything except a word so nobody would have to say “Israel”. Palestine was not anything until 1988 when they were made independent and thus “State of Palestine”. Israel has had to fight to live ever since they made statehood. The ink wasn’t even freaking dry on the paper sign by the British when all the Arab countries attacked them promoting “jihad” and all that other BS. Israel has been in 5 different battles, never started anything, but they won them all. And they will win this one too.

  • Genia Wheeler

    Palestine is Jordan. The Uk gave 3/4 of the land to Palestine Arab’s and the 1/4 to Israel. But a few bullheaded people wanted the Jews to not get anything so the did not stay with Jordan but fought Israel. This crap this man is writing is crazy. There is no proof of what he is saying.

    this is so stupid. I can’t believe it.. most of this trouble is caused by stupid people who believe one religion or another. religion isn’t fact, it’s a philosophy. one with lots and lots of murder on its hands.. take the fucking land, divide it in half and both sides get to shut the fuck up , stop fighting and build their societies.. .simple.. god, what a bunch of MORONS. it’s LAND,,, a piece of real estate—who did what to who is not relevant anymore—also… mow down ALL of Jerusalem and turn it into a fucking WATER PARK already ok?—- time to BAN ALL RELIGIONS FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH…keep your stupid religion to yourself. IT’S RELIGION, which means its personal, NOT political.

    No getting around it. Muslims following their green book will be violent liars just like Satan is a liar. Why are they that way you may ask? It is because of this: Allah is Satan with the same character traits as Satan. Satan is a conniver, schemer, deceiver. Allah says he is the best deceiver, but we know that there is only one deceiver. Allah is Satan the fallen angel Lucifer. Muslims will not change untill the book they follow changes. KJV. Thous, whence and thee should remain in the bible. They should not be replaced.

    God wants us to be at
    peace with clothing optional people respecting them. God wants us to love the homosexual and other
    sexuality names. God likes the sight of hair counting every hair.

    Palestinian loss of land? That bullshit map has been proven as the bullshit that it was long time ago. Just go out and look.

    “The firing of pathetic scrap metal rockets from impoverished Gaza”
    Notice the typical spin, trying to use select choice words in order to deride HAMAS capability to deliver harm as if to make them all poor and innocent.

    Hey mr. Robert Barsocchini, I hope you have a nice home defended by nice soldiers so you won’t have to feel what it’s like when a “pathetic scrap metal rocket from impoverished Gaza” hits your house.
    And here’s a clue: it does kill.

    Just about everything in this “blog” (and that goes to tell) is so dripping with bias, hatred and falsified lies/bullshit presented as facts that it’s not even worth talking about any further.

    I pity you and wish you peace. Because the likes of HAMAS and ISIS only have one thing in mind for you: convert or die.

    Keep hating Jews. Remember: first they came for them and you said nothing…

    • 7%solution

      Being critical of Israeli politics does not equal hating Jews. However, it could be someone hating fascism.

      • Ori Klein

        Funny, when the hate is focused solely on Jews and ignores fascism everywhere else around the world, because it is not as convenient target.

        • 7%solution

          Other fascists don’t pretend to be 100% democracies comparable to modern European models. Israel is demanding credit for the moral high ground they’d like to see themselves on. Perhaps they’re more slick and palatable than their Palestinian counterparts when it comes to appearances but underneath Israel is just as brutal and unforgiving as Muslim extremist factions in the region.

          • Ori Klein

            I wonder if you realize how much of a bullshit what you said was.
            Israel executes women because they broke some Shariah laws? No.
            Israel executes different ethnicities because they are not the prime one? No.
            I could go all night, but I rather sleep.
            Anyone doing minor research can find how far from being the same as any Muslim faction Israel is.

          • 7%solution

            2000 Gaza dead and untold 1000s additional inured beg to differ. Whenever Israel retaliates for anything militarily done against it, the casualty rate on the other side is somewhere between 50 to 100:1, and it’s always the civilians who pay the highest toll. That can’t be an accident since it has been a pattern since 1948 and beyond. This pattern and casualty ratio speak for themselves.

        • Gonzalo

          you are right, US should be accused too, it is Israhell’s eternal bulling partner, but that is not going to happen since we run UN, NATO, IMF, WTO, etc…
          as you said…not convenient

    • Gonzalo

      Palestinian loss of land, is something overwhelmingly undeniable, look for UNGA181, and see how Palestine was amputated the 56% on land it hold in 1948. Then on top of that, occupation of the remaining land predates the creation of Hamas by very very far.
      By no means I’m defending their culture, but I respect it, is theirs, and way older than ours.
      As a different topic, fact is, they hate us now only for what we do/did, not for what we are. This is the result of decades of stealing oil from their lands using Israhell as military base. As a matter of fact, we use to be allies with Iran, because the son of a bitch that was the dictator at that time, The Sha, was “OUR son of a bitch”, and when the legitimate owner of those resources claimed what it was theirs, they became “terrorists”, so… we brought it to our selves.
      And about being biased, in USA, all main media is disgustingly biased, Hollywood, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, they are a joke.
      About Hamas, remember it was created by us, Mossad and MI6, we armed then, we our taxes, because remember that while there is a threat for Israhell, we will be always excused for messing on the middle east.
      Peace

    you dont live in israel and still posting lies in the net.
    good for you.

  • Steve Morrison

    It’s refreshing to read Robert Barsocchini’s impartial balanced view of Israel. Then again anyone who has a clue of history might look at it as a vicious hate filled screed that should be used as the example of racism still lingering amongst us. Americans are smart enough to recognize the Swastika attached to this “piece.”

  • Peter Piper

    It’s a travesty that the Israelies have lost 63 troops and the loss of the 1500+ civilians from Gaza, it’s unfortunate that you can not see that the responsibility for these

    deaths lie squarely on the shoulders of Hamas terrorists. I understand that the people of Gaza are intimidated and threatened with death if they don’t do as they say,

    unfortunately the IDF can only go so fast and do so much in clearing this evil incarnate from the earth. Why don’t do you something to help them, expose Hamas to the world for

    what they are and how they do it?

    God loves all, accept Him and save your souls before the end comes.

    Go IDF! #Israel100% #StandWithIsrael #PrayForIsrael

      Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.

A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

      The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

      24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

    Looking for a “final solution” to the mid east hatred???? Good luck ! ! Menachem Beigin said” never again”.. the Palestineans are saying “one more time”….. The Israelis are saying..ok.. we’ll have one more round…… let’s go ! .

    • 7%solution

      Menachem Begin was a Jewish Palestinian terrorist as the head of Irgun, committing many acts of terror against Palestinian natives and the British occupying force. Not a good reference for Israel.

    Israel should bulldoze every single Arab into the pits of hell where they belong.Palestinans have no historical right to Israel as a matter of fact these people are from Transjordan they are Bedouins tribes that scoured the desert most every single Arab nation could careless about these people they only care about killing Jews,and these Bedouins are their ticket to the show.Americans quickly forget watching these terrorists dancing in the streets after the WTC was rammed by a couple of jets,I will never forget or ever forgive my motto is Kill em all

    What amazes me is the ignorance of people like Magarita that have no clue as to the history of Israel I wish I hade a dime for every time the Jews were murdered and their homes burned by invaders.The fact is the world in General hates Jews mostly for sticking together,no matter how many times the world has tried to wipeout the Jews they keep coming back,and the beauty of it now is Israel has the weapons to incinerate the Middle East so when Iran gets the bomb And if they decide to do what they have promised I believe Israel will respond by turning every country in the Middle East into a nuclear waste zone.

Notice how their proof of this is some jackass making claims with no pictures to back up this propaganda.Let me tell you a real fact Gaza is being illegally occupied by squatters this was land Israel took over after a war THIS IS EGYPTIAN LAND and the West Bank is also occupied by squatters because it is ISRAELI LAND.If anyone wants to no the truth just read a encyclopedia or the bible and stop believing these baseless articles,the only truth in this article is Israel has knukes hundreds of them ??? I doubt it but if they do Gould for them.I can tell you another fact if these Arab squatters had one of those knukes they would have used it”……..”
