Silent Screams in Gaza

“You can’t have a war against terrorism because war is terrorism…with a bigger budget.”

Once again we are watching massacres in Gaza just like last March when 110 civilians were slaughtered. You know the feeling – Rage, anger, sadness and despair as million dollar bombs paid by our taxes rain upon already starved and helpless civilians – so far the toll is 364 dead and over 1,500 wounded. This is one of the bloodiest attacks on Palestinians since 1948.

Up until now, Palestinians were only starved to death, dying silently for want of basic medications: insulin, cancer treatment, products for dialysis prohibited from reaching them by Israel. Elderly and sick deprived of food and medicine by the Israeli blockade intended to cause suffering and deprivation to 1.5 million Palestinians, most of them refugees and children, in the Gaza strip.

But now, the Apartheid state of Israel is using American supplied Israeli F-16 warplanes and Apache helicopters to drop hundreds of bombs on dozens of locations in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip.

This Christmas/Hanukkah, Israel chose to violate two Commandments given to Moses:

Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

Yeah – and that too – right in the Holy Land and with our weapons and funding.

Obama’s silence is deafening but more disturbing is his and his fellow Demoncrats’ (No – not a typo – that’s what I call supporters of war and genocide) support and applause for the Israeli mass murder.

The justification used for the genocide this time is retaliation for rockets being fired at Israel – Not a single Israeli was hurt by the rockets when these attacks began. Maybe people should be asked – but if someone was occupying your land, bulldozing your homes, dropping million dollar bombs on your villages, building settlements upon them and stealing your livelihood, what would they do?

Americans – these bombs and massacres are paid by our taxes, these attacks would not be possible without American military and economic aid to Israel – it is our responsibility to speak out and protest alongside human beings worldwide who are outraged at this slaughter taking place. Demonstrations are important – but when demonstrations end will you go back home and continue to let Palestinians in Gaza die in silence once again as your taxes are used to bomb children instead of educate them?
