Gaza 2009 – We Will Never Forget

Here is a brief montage documenting the genocide committed by Israel in “Operation Cast Lead”. It also shows the war crimes as well as the the brave and noble people who stood up, who spoke out, who demonstrated (like my dear friends the Viranis and Peeras) against the Israeli Slaughter Machine.

Bear in mind – it is your taxes that are paying for these crimes:

President Obama if you are reading this blog, I’d like tell you that you are siding with the wrong people in this conflict.

IDF Shoots Father, Two Brothers – Then Prevents Ambulance

Here is a truly shocking story that our propaganda machine – the “fair and balanced” US mainstream media – would never show. Thumbs up to NYC based independent news program “Democracy Now!” for taking on this story of Amer Shurrab, a Palestinian from Khan Yunis living in the United States:

“On Friday, his dad and two brothers were fleeing their village when their vehicle came under Israeli fire. His brother, twenty-eight-year-old Kassab, died in a hail of bullets trying to flee the vehicle. His other brother, eighteen years old, Ibrahim, survived the initial attack, but Israeli troops refused to allow an ambulance to reach him and his father until twenty hours later. By then, it was too late. Ibrahim had bled to death in front of his father.”

You can watch, read or listen to the whole interview here.

In Gaza, Ambulances have to give coordinates to the IDF to be able to get to rescue civilians otherwise they are shot like the many who tried to without IDF approval. This is a war crime. Simply inhuman.

The next time you look at your pay stubs and complain how much taxes you are paying or when you sit down and write that check to the IRS on April 15 – just remember that a portion of that money is paying for this.

Open Letter to Obama – From an Israeli Woman

This letter was written by an Israeli woman, a member of Machsom Watch (Checkpoint Watch) which is a voluntary movement of Israeli women, founded in 2001, dedicated to monitoring and reporting human rights violations in the West Bank and Jerusalem. It brings together Israeli women who are united in their opposition to the occupation and their commitment to human rights.

Welcome to Gaza, Mr. Dershowitz!

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality”
– South African Bishop, Desmond Tutu, winner of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for non-violent resistance and struggle against Apartheid in South Africa.

Alan Dershowitz, apologist for the Israel lobby in the US, put out an op-ed column in the LA Times, January 10, 2009 titled “Hamas’ War Crimes” defending the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza and ignoring every crime Israel has committed from the economic blockade to violation of the ceasefire to its deliberate targeting of civilians using bombs banned by international law such as the DIME bombs and use of white phosphorus.

Jim Doody wrote back responding with a profound but accurate scenario of the situation in Gaza. Thanks, Shai, for sharing it.

Here is Jim’s correspondence to the LA Times:

Consider another related situation: An armed robber breaks into your house. He kills several family members and forces the rest of your family into a closet. If you want to eat, you have to ask him. You can’t go to work. The kids he hasn’t killed cannot go to school.

When you complain, he opens the door and fires his gun into your closet — and don’t hold your breath for medical aid. The police won’t help because they’re on his side. They’ll even lend him more bullets.

Welcome to Gaza, Mr. Dershowitz!

Jim Doody

Our government may support the mass murderers and baby killers, may even take our taxes and use it to fund the baby killers with missiles, jets, choppers, but they can’t control our minds. We will not be silent.

Joe the War Pimp in Israel

Remember Joe the Plumber? Well, he’s switched careers and now has become a war pimp for the Zionist state of Israel. Currently he’s in Israel defending their war crimes:

Joe the Plumber Reporting from Israel.

In the meantime, while our media gets their reports from Joe, continue to brainwash Americans with Israeli propaganda, and cover up the Israeli massacre – here’s a glimpse into day 17 in Gaza:

Front Row Seats to Genocide

Stop Genocide in Gaza

Stop Genocide in Gaza

“I say to all those leaders: Do not look the other way, do not hesitate … It is within your power to prevent a genocide.” – Nelson Mandela.

Has anyone heard from President-Elect Obama yet?

The death toll so far in this Gaza massacre on its 17th day:

917 Palestinians murdered, over 4,100 wounded. More than a quarter of them children.

Israel has lost 13 Israelis – three civilians- and 10 soldiers — have died including 4 killed by “friendly fire”.

How sad is it to see that while cities around the world were protesting Israel’s massacre this weekend, in America, the House of Representatives and the Senate were scrambling to see who is more loyal to Israel? Only Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich were brave enough to speak out against Israel’s mass murder. The rest applauded and praised Israel’s genocide while they voted to support slaughter of women and children.

The US Senate endorsed Israel’s massacre of Palestinians with a vote of 100-0.

The US House of Representatives voted 430-5 to endorse Israel’s massacre of Palestinians.

The resolutions endorsed by 100% of the US Senate and 99% of the House were written by Israeli lobby – AIPAC – As were the speeches praising and commending Israel for war crimes and gross inhumanity.

What a shame – our elected representatives are nothing more than puppets of AIPAC and proudly support the massacre of woman and children. They have front row seats to genocide. Please call them up and tell them.

Self Defense? Was it self defense when Israeli soldiers told Gaza residents to get into a building, telling them they would not be bombed there and then bombed it anyway? It was no accident – accidentally you can bomb once, may be twice but three times? What kind of monster does that?

Human Rights Watch has also accused Israel of using white phosphorus – if you recall white phosphorus was used by the US and Britain in Iraq –especially during the massacre in Fallujah. How ironic – Saddam used white phosphorus on his people and so did the US. White phosphorus is banned by international law and is also being considered as a chemical weapon. Doctors in Gaza have reported burns on bodies that can only be caused by white phosphorus. Israel has also used white phosphorus when they bombed Lebanon in 2006.

Finally – salutations and praise to the 700 Israelis arrested for protesting against their government’s war crimes in Gaza. God bless them for knowing the difference between right and wrong and are not afraid to speak out.
