Gaza’s Youth Manifesto For Change!

From anonymous young voices in Gaza, reprinted from Facebook group:Gaza Youth Breaks Out (GYBO), file under Jailhouse Literature.   Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN. Fuck UNWRA. Fuck USA! We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community... (Via THE GUARDIAN UK, which chose an incendiary if wildly inappropriate photo to represent the Gaza cyber rebels.) GAZA'S YOUTH MANIFESTO FOR CHANGE Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN. Fuck UNWRA. Fuck USA! We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community! We want to scream and break this wall of silence, injustice and indifference like the Israeli F16’s breaking the wall of sound; scream with all the power in our souls in order to release this immense frustration that consumes us because of this fucking situation we live in; we are like lice between two nails living a nightmare inside a nightmare, no room for hope, no space for freedom. We are sick of being caught in this political struggle; sick of coal dark nights with airplanes circling above our homes; sick of innocent farmers getting shot in the buffer zone because they are taking care of their lands; sick of bearded guys walking around with their guns abusing their power, beating up or incarcerating young people demonstrating for what they believe in; sick of the wall of shame that separates us from the rest of our country and keeps us imprisoned in a stamp-sized piece of land; sick of being portrayed as terrorists, homemade fanatics with explosives in our pockets and evil in our eyes; sick of the indifference we meet from the international community, the so-called experts in expressing concerns and drafting resolutions but cowards in enforcing anything they agree on; we are sick and tired of living a shitty life, being kept in jail by Israel, beaten up by Hamas and completely ignored by the rest of the world.   There is a revolution growing inside of us, an immense dissatisfaction and frustration that will destroy us unless we find a way of canalizing this energy into something that can challenge the status quo and give us some kind of hope. The final drop that made our hearts tremble with frustration and hopelessness happened 30th November, when Hamas’ officers came to Sharek Youth Forum, a leading youth organization (www.sharek.ps) with their guns, lies and aggressiveness, throwing everybody outside, incarcerating some and prohibiting Sharek from working. A few days later, demonstrators in front of Sharek were beaten and some incarcerated. We are really living a nightmare inside a nightmare. It is difficult to find words for the pressure we are under. We barely survived the Operation Cast Lead, where Israel very effectively bombed the shit out of us, destroying thousands of homes and even more lives and dreams. They did not get rid of Hamas,

Uri Brodsky, Dubai Mossad assassins tied to Taglit-Birthright Israel

One of the 33 operatives which UAE investigators have tied to the January assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai was apprehended in Poland. Suspected Mossad agent Uri Brodsky awaits extradition to Germany to account for a fake German passport issued to a "Michael Bodenheimer." Israel is naturally insisting that Brodsky be returned to Israel, where their "legal system is known throughout the world and can handle this issue." Brodsky claims to be a victim of mistaken identity, something about his fingerprints. Does it make you wonder about the first exonerated suspects who, safety [back] in Israel, were able to claim that whoever used their passports wasn't them? Meanwhile the credit cards used by the Israeli hit team have been traced to Payoneer, a financial facilitator for Taglit-Birthright pilgrims.

Was Gaza flotilla infiltrated by agent-provocateurs? Plausible, but whose?

It's convenient to surmise that unexpected violence between activists and authorities must be the work of undercover provocateurs. With the fallout of the Mavi Marmara massacre reaching fever pitch, it's hard to believe Israel would have engineered it thus; and far easier to imagine IDF infiltrators trying to steer flotilla organizers clear of headline-grabbing provocations. I have a theory that terrorism-suspect and ultra-activist Ken O'Keefe is without doubt a provocateur. Working for whom? You and me. By ours I don't mean the us of A. I mean people of conscience. Ken O'Keefe is the former US marine who renounced his citizenship after fighting in the Gulf War. Among many actions he's participated in since then, O'Keefe led the bus caravan to Iraq during the lead up to that war, when it was hoped dotting Iraq with Westerners would be the human shield that deterred a US=British attack. O'Keefe was among those on the Mavi Marmara, in particular fending off the commandos. He recounts how he helped disarm the soldiers and stash their sidearms for later use as evidence. The clips weren't "emptied" into the Israelis at all, but stashed separately to prevent anyone from using or being accused of using the guns. If anything O'Keefe served as provocateur to the activists' courage, to step up a try to avert Israel's interception of the humanitarian aid. But on the theme of provocateurs, there are some schools of thought worth deliberating. (to be continued)

Dubai IDs al-Mabhouh death squad

STATE TERROR INC- If suddenly you recognize these faces among random people loitering about you, you're next, and maybe too late. (As usual Western media outlets are leaving the agents' AKAs unnamed, but they are: top: Evan Dennings, Gail Folliard, James Clarke, Jonathan Graham; middle: Michael Bodenheimer, Paul Keeley, Michael Barney; bottom: Peter Elvinger, Kevin Daveron, Melvyn Mildiner, Stephen Hodes) After reviewing hotel and airport surveillance records, authorities in Dubai today identified the 11-person death squad which assassinated Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh on January 20. The team converged on the UAE carrying European passports, 6 British, 3 Irish, 1 French and 1 German, and departed within hours of the hit. Their purported identities have been released to the respective intelligence agencies, awaiting corroboration about their common employer. Although a detailed account was given about the footage which documented the stakeout and ultimate murder, Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim did not reveal which team member wore the hotel staff disguise and which four ambushed Mabhouh in his room and strangled him. Peter Elvinger was the apparent mastermind behind the plot. UPDATE: Melvyn Adam Mildiner has been reached at his home in Israel, claims birthday is off by a couple days.

Picture of Israeli worth 20 Palestinians

At first glance the trade betrayed a racist inequity. This week Israel agreed to release twenty Palestinian women in exchange for one Israeli held captive by Hamas. Not for the release of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, just for proof that he was still alive. What is the worth of one Israeli? At first his captors demanded the release of all Palestinian women and girls. Later they asked for the release of 1,000 detainees. But the relative values are reversed. Shalit is the lone POW held by Palestine. Israel incarcerates an estimated 11,000, most detained for obstructing the construction of the Apartheid Wall. Exchanging Shalit would represent a trade of 100% for 9%. Don't worry, Israel's occupation forces can always capture more. Gilad Shalit is the first IDF soldier captured by the Palestinians since 1994. Israel on the other hand, with the collaboration of Fatah, can arrest civilians whenever they choose. Shalit's capture is an interesting story. Israel claims to have received warning of the eminent kidnap attempt. The day before, IDF soldiers raided a house belonging to a suspected Hamas militant. They arrested his two sons, a doctor and a lawyer. Their torture allegedly extracted details of a cross-border raid. As a result, technically I suppose you could say, their intelligence officers "received warning." However Israel was unable to thwart the tank operator's capture. Shalit has served as the pretext for many ensuing incursions into Gaza, at a great cost to Palestinian lives. Draw your own conclusions. Israel propagates this story to assert that Gilad Shalit was "kidnapped," invoking a litany of international laws which Israel wields against Hamas. With shameless hypocrisy, Israelis protest the inhumanities suffered by Shalit, ignoring the documentation of thousands of imprisoned Palestinian subjected to worse. The irony of Israel's complaints becomes tedious: lack of International Red Cross access, parental visitation, regular correspondence, information of his exact whereabouts, etc. This in light of Israel's refusal to permit oversight of its Palestinian detainees, or to denounce its tortures. What gall to decry the fate of one soldier, taken prisoner while on duty, with Israel's demonstrated eagerness to expend ordnance and harass Palestinian civilians at whim. Shalit has prompted Israel to launch aerial bombardments, and restrict border checkpoints in the effort to extort his release, or to pit Palestinian sentiments against Hamas, who refuse to release Shalit in spite of the collective punishment meted to its people. The Israelis had reason to doubt that Gilad Shalit, captured by Hamas in 2006, was not dead. After all, the IDF was confident that their January incursion into Gaza had destroyed all known Hamas hiding places.

US Senate represents Insurance, Israel

Are you represented by a US senator? I doubt it. Today the Senate Finance Committee rejected Public Option amendments to the health care reform legislation; continued to vilify ACORN based on fraudulent accusations hyped the MSM; and thirty two senators signed a letter drafted by AIPAC, to urge Secretary of State Clinton to block further investigation of Israel for its crimes in Gaza based on the findings of the Goldstone Report.   Abolish the Senate! Does America have any use for a House of Lords? Today five Democrats joined the ten Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee to reject a PUBLIC OPTION. The senators voting no were: Max Baucus (D-MT), Kent Conrad (D-ND), Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), Thomas Carper (D-DE), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Charles Grassley (R-IA), John Ensign (R-NV), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Jim Bunning (R-KY), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mike Enzi (R-WY), John Cornyn (R-TX) Senator Rockerfeller promoted his public option saying that "the public option is on the march." There should be more pitchforks than that on the march. Who are these rich bastards who lord over our representatives in Congress? It's a House of Lords, representing America's moneyed interests, against the needs of the common people. Senators Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga) collected signatures last week to urge the GAO to investigate ACORN. I mention this letter because of similar source of today's letter. Isakson and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) circulated the letter to block the UN from taking action against Israel. The other senators, among them 16 Democrats, are: Charles Schumer (D-NY), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Carl Levin (D-MI), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Tim Johnson (D-SD), David Vitter (D-ND), Evan Bayh (D-IN), Mark Begich (D-AK), Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Byron Dorgan (D-ND), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Russ Feingold (D-WI), Dan Inouye(D-HI), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Arlen Specter (D-PA), Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), James Risch (R-ID), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jim DeMint (R-SC), John Ensign (R-NV), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Mike Johanns (R-NE), Roger Wicker (R-MS), John McCain (R-AZ), John Thune (R-SD), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Do these people represent the American People? Here is their letter sent on behalf of Israel: Dear Madam Secretary, We appreciate the State Department publicly raising significant concerns about the United Nations Fact-Finding Mission led by Justice Richard Goldstone. We believe it is critical that the U.S. continue to work very hard to block any punitive actions against Israel that this report mentions, whether at the Security Council or other U.N. bodies. The loss of innocent lives is unfortunate wherever it occurs – in Israel or in Gaza. But this biased report ignores many of the key facts, and this should be recognized by the international community. We commend the State Department statements criticizing the one-sided mandate directing the Goldstone report and highlighting the real causes of the war between Israel and Hamas. In particular, we are gratified that the Department has very serious concerns about the

Don’t buy Israeli Apartheid

Interesting counterpoint in Ha'aretz this morning about the Goldstone Report on the recent war crimes committed in Gaza, where the UN commission found grounds to investigate both Hamas and Israel for violations.   Hamas rejects the charges based on population's right to resist illegal occupation. The Israeli administration was indignant with a more complicated rationale. In the face of having inflicted 100 times more casualties, most of them civilian, Amira Hass wrote about The one thing worse than denying the Gaza report, which is to justify the crimes. Ari Shavit took a further tack, arguing that the UN must hold Obama to same standard as Israel. My favorite analysis of the moral predicament Israel finds itself rationalizing, is by Jihad el-Khazen.

Israel’s Fatah

One of the saddest things in political life is a 'Movement' when it is captured by the colonialist masters, and that is the case with Fatah. It is a dead, dead, dead organization now that the US and Israeli governments have captured it. Fatah's latest get-together underlined how pathetic a group of zombie collaborators they have now become. Noted Palestinian commentator, Ramzy Baroud, captures the scene well in his article: Fatah: A New Beginning or an Imminent End? More about Fatah's 'elections:' CIA-Trained Security Chiefs Elected to the Palestinian Leadership- What Actually Happened in Fatah's Elections? by Esam aL-Amin.

Pioneering human shields since 9-11-01

Ward Churchill called them Little Eichmanns, but if that's giving the World Trade Center workers too much credit, at minimum they were human shields, masking the Command & Control Center of America's economic war machine.   The US military is quick to blame its foes for using human shields, to explain the collateral damage we always inflict --Iraq, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah-- but who more deliberately than the USA? The huge weapons industry makes all fifty states legitimate military targets, and now because armed drones are piloted from US soil, the homeland war zone extends into our homeland, for which the American public is the human shield.

UCSB Hillel students Rebecca Joseph, Tova Hausman highlight poor education

Today's university campuses have to deal with College Republicans, ACTA and NeoMcCarthyists. The latest uneducable creeps shopped their leftist-professor- horror-story to the Anti-Defamation League, to brand their teacher's criticism of Israel as "anti-Semitic." UCSB senior Rebecca Joseph and junior Tova Hausman both took exception to Professor William Robinson's Sociology Listserv email comparing Israel's mop up operation in Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto. Below are the words they cut and pasted together to accuse Robinson. The literacy level of these two students is probably on par for Twilight fans, but definitely unbecoming for the University of California system. The first letter is reputedly from a college senior. Rebecca Joseph's opening argument was plagiarized from the internet, but she continues to scold Professor Robinson for straying from her idea of what makes a university professor. The second complaint from UCSB junior Tova Hausman copies the first letter's form, but adds the accusation of sexual misconduct for leaving her feeling raped. Is it unfair to put simple college students under national scrutiny like this? From their own words they show themselves to be rather helpless. But what to do when students, or some unscrupulous backers, are taking aim at a respected tenured professor? It's serious business. Organizations like ACTA and Hillel are out to enforce a veritable Right Wing PC rectitude. As if it's politically incorrect to make fun of uneducated on campus! Keeping educators silenced was easier during the Bush administration, but the dampers are still on Academic Freedom. Ward Churchill may have won his case in court against the University of Colorado, but opinionated faculty are still few and far between. The latest attack against William Robinson attempts to reinforce more of the same. Probably by now Hillel is wishing they'd coaxed a better educated pair of students to face off against Robinson. The administrators who received the complaint letters should have earmarked the girls for a remedial English refresher in anticipation of their graduation. But let's look beyond the cheap shots. The accusations inarticulated here are scurrilous where they are not outright illogical. You be the judge. First Student Complaint Here's the first complaint received by UCSB, from Rebecca Joseph, Vice-president of the Santa Barbara campus Orthodox Jewish Chabad. Interestingly, UCSB has a number of pro-Israel action groups: Hillel, Jewish Awareness Movement on Campus, American Students for Israel, Stand With Us, AIPAC and the Israeli Palestinian Film Festival (which judging by the lineup runs films only by un-self-critical Israelis and sympathetic Palestinians). Here is Rebecca Joseph's complaint, uncorrected. To Whom It May Concern: On Monday, january 19, at 1:02 pm, I received an email from Professor Robinson for the course Sociology of Globalization (Soc 130SG). The subject of the email was "Parallel images of Nazis and Israelis." This email compared the aggression of the Nazis to the Jews in Germany, to that which is going on between Palestine and Israel today. Professor Robinson wrote the first three paragraphs including the following: "Gaza is Israel's Warsaw..." In addition to his few words, he attached

One man’s Guerrier, another’s Terroriste

WELL LOOKY WHAT I FOUND! Published in France just after the war, this book is about "LES TERRORISTES." Can you tell by the cover art, who play the title role? USA POST-2001: America designates its war zone detainees as EPWs, or "Enemy Prisoners of War," because to call them POWs would confuse public sympathies. To the average American, "P.O.W." commemorates the GI captivity experience in Vietnam or Korea. When a soldier of ours is caught, that's a POW. To grant both sides equal status would be to humanize our enemy. Of course, POW used to mean all "Prisoners Of War," ours and theirs, in WWII days, before, and as mentioned in all international conventions. We label the people of Iraq or Afghanistan who resist our occupation, as insurgents. Be they Bathists or Taliban, we call their cause an insurgency, not a resistance, because that would confuse American public affection for the French Resistance: La Resistance! Every nation in Occupied Europe had a resistance movement, and the WWII archetypes are still fresh. Occupiers equal Germans. Collaborators equal cowards, traitors, Qwislings, Vichy. Resistance fighters equal the heroes. Since then, American occupations, of postwar France for example, have avoided mention of their assigned task. In Germany and Japan, US soldiers are merely "stationed" there. In countries which we've invaded, like Vietnam, Americans denied being the despised occupiers, we were advisors, protectors, etc. And the populations who opposed our military administration were insurgents, and if they attacked us by unconventional means, they were terrorists! In Iraq as well as Afghanistan, the American spectator can discern that al-Qaeda has been the only named terrorist organization, yet Sunni, Shiite, and Taliban fighters are all called terrorists. Militant Islam is considered terrorist, Hezbollah and Hamas liberation movements are called terrorist, even the Somali pirate brigands are being condemned as terrorists. So who were "Les Terroristes" of Occupied France? The book cover heeds us to "Souvenais-vous!" Never forget them. The book is full of their pictures and accounts of their brave deeds. Most of them fell to the Nazis, to firing squads and Gestapo tortures. The brave Terroristes were the scourge of the German Occupation, rooted out and almost eradicated before the last year of the war. The Nazis called them "terrorists," they were LA RESISTANCE!

Israeli ‘Hasbara’ spam alert

Remember when the defense department was paying public relations companies and Iraqi newspapers to insert articles praising the Iraq war? The companies also attempted to plant coverage favorable to the US military in US newspapers. There rightly was a media uproar about the manipulation. We'll see whether the same happens over this (Hasbara spamming of blogs?) The (Israeli) foreign ministry shouldn't get a pass on this one. It may view such hasbara as maximising its efforts to "explain" Israel's position in the world media. I view it as a cynical attempt to flood the web and news media with favorable flackery in a vain attempt to tilt public opinion toward Israel. Not only does it do Israel a disservice, it stains every legitimate effort that the ministry might make to explain Israel to the world, since no one will believe a word it says knowing it engages in such outright propaganda. Not to mention that this is such cheap pennyante stuff. What do they gain by this? How effective can it be and how many can be convinced? By the way, I've even noticed the hasbaraniks in my own blog. You can see them a mile away because they've never published a comment before yet write something like: "I've enjoyed your blog for a long time, but anyone with a brain in their head knows that Hamas is out to destroy Israel blah, blah blah." Pretty formulaic stuff. Also, you can Google a few phrases of the comment and if you find it appears elsewhere on the web you know you either have a hasbaranik or someone who has repetition compulsion.... Full article about Israeli military spamming of antiZionist blogs can be read at Hasbara spam alert ...See wikipedia for more about hasbara, otherwise known as Israeli military propaganda spamming. As one can see by the fake 'discussion' by Israeli military spammers here on Not My Tribe, this Israeli suppression of free speech and discussion is a very real problem. We have to spend inordinate amounts of our own time just discussing with these spammers about what they actually are doing rather than talking about anything more political than that. They are extremely boring for us, and extremely boring to others, too. Quite simply they clutter up blogs with their gang graffiti, and that is really about all they are actually about. And be sure to visit the REPORTING AND CREATING THE MESSAGE art of political 'Jewish State' spamming page of the Israel Hasbara Committee to get it from the horse's mouth. See how dishonest all these spammers really are when they claim to be mere concerned citizens all alone by themselves, rather than a concentrated and coordinated Israeli governmental effort in support of the Israeli war machine. They are lying when they pretend that we are making it all up. They are lying for Israel and in support of its racist policies.

Canada welcomes Bush, bars Galloway

Canada refused to bar entry to Ex-president George Bush, then declined calls for his arrest for war crimes and prevented attempts by others to make citizen's arrests. But in the same breath, Canada denied entry to a prominent antiwar voice, British MP George Galloway, because HE was infandous. Clearly they have no standard at all. The Canadian minister had to conjure an Old English word behind which to hide. And where hider handicap seekers with a countdown from an agreeable number, the Canadian obstructionist had to consult an Oxford Dictionary circa 1708, declaring Galloway to be persona-non-grata for unspeakably, unreference-able dastardliness. The trouble is, too many of us have seen Galloway's un-despicableness on Youtube. Galloway famously gave the Bush warmongers a dressing down rarely seen in the orchestrated political theater of today. Not only did Galloway show the emperor to have no clothes, he laughed at his teeny willy. Galloway's participation in RESIST WAR FROM GAZA TO KANDAHAR, seems most opposed by the Zionists. Here's the letter which purportedly influenced the Canadians in their decision: An Open Letter to the Government of Canada Keep George Galloway out of Canada It has come to the attention of the Jewish Defence League that a UK MP George Galloway, will be speaking in Toronto. As you are aware, anti Jewish attacks are on the rise across the world. Some of our campuses have given platforms to proxies from Radical Iran. It is our hope that the Government of Canada will not permit George Galloway entry into Canada. I have enclosed some information about George Galloway below; "I don't think Hamas is a terrorist organization" -- Galloway "Hezb'allah has never been a terrorist organization" --Galloway "there's no compulsion in Islam" -- Galloway George Galloway has spoken in Canada before, in 2006, at Carleton University and Concordia University. Here is a link exposing the fact that his visit was partly financed by the Syrian Social Nationalist Movement: splatto.net I remember seeing an on-line poster of this outfit, advertising Galloway's visit, on the now defunct Judeoscope Blog. The poster had neo-Nazi trappings, in bright red and black. Blog describing the Galloway visit, the poster, and the SNNN: splatto.net Mr. George Galloway, what is your connection with the organization "Toronto Coalition to Stop the War" ? "Toronto Coalition to Stop the War" is organizing this Galloway event and they are one of the groups which attended the conferences organized by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. "Canadian antiwar activists sat down with terror groups" Hamas, Hezbollah delegates among those at Cairo Conference Don Butler, The Ottawa Citizen Published: Tuesday, May 08, 2007 "... Canadian activists were out in force at a recent conference in Cairo that sought to ... Many of the Canadian delegates were from the Canadian Peace Alliance, ... banned Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian opposition parties," It is my hope that the Government of Canada will do everything possible to keep this hater away from Canada. Thank You, Meir Weinstein, National Director Jewish Defence League of Canada

Who’s actually getting expelled from Sudan?

Thirteen supposedly non-governmental agencies (NGOs) just got expelled from Sudan. See Sudan Protects and Welcomes Aid Groups ...Who and what are these groups that got thrown out of Sudan then? One of the groups is Mercy Corps, funded by some very big corporations in America. See their website's list of big donors... Corporate, Foundation and Non-Profit Partners ... Amongst them, I see Wells Fargo, The Mellon Foundation, the Mormon Charities, The Bill Gate's Foundation, The National Association for Business Women (Tajikistan), The Schwab Fund, YMCA (Lebanon)!, the Bayer Corporation, one of the CIA's very own airlines called Evergreen International Aviation, Inc., JP Morgan, Nike, PacTrust, US Bank, Washington Mutual, and the list just goes on and on and on. InterAction, another group that got kicked out also calls itself a NGO, but look where the funding actually comes from? U.S. International Affairs Budget ...follow the link to the United States State Department! This is a US government agency that was working inside Sudan to help overthrow the regime there! The government of Sudan is correct in calling these supposed agencies SPIES. They are. See Iran and Hamas back Sudan's Bashir for more information about the expulsion of the US from Sudan.

The US and allies pulverized Gaza in order to control the ‘fixing’

Donors pledge $5bn to rebuild Gaza. ...What's $5 billion to the US government when it throws trillions out to the banks and financial institutions in their 'crisis'? The US government simply destroyed the already semi starved Gaza in an attempt to shove Hamas to the side afterwards during the 'fixing' to be arranged! That's simply their standard morality at the US-Israeli Zionists Central Command. All's fair in love of Israel and war against the Palestinians is their motto! Remember when Barack Obama didn't say a word as CIC Dubya and Israel went about with their ethnic cleansing rampage of destruction against the people living in Gaza? The excuse then was that 'I am not president yet', and blah, blah, blah.... 'One president at a time'... and blah, blah, blah. They just couldn't act at the time they said, because?.... well just because. Enter now Zionist Barack Obama, Zionist Joe Biden, and (my favorite Zionist cutie) Zionist Hillary Clinton. Cracks the ears just to hear them rattle on about how they're going to make sure that only their slave, Abbas of the PLO, can be allowed to control the distribution of 'aid' to Gaza. Who does the US government think that they are kidding in the Muslim World? It simply sickens to see the Saudis, Israel, and Dictator Mubarak in Egypt all talking together about how they're now going to help Gaza out. What a line up of total scum, and the Muslim World is all watching! So much for bringing democacy to the region, since it's more like bringing Hell. YES, this is what American liberals bought with their votes. They bought more support for Israel in ethnic cleansing the so-called Holy Land. They bought more support for waging an eternal war for the military industrial complex business called GWOT. They bought more WAR. They bought into destroying Gaza so that they could then 'fix' it. They bought into helping murder off the children of Gaza.

The Gaza Zoo massacre- a look at Israeli military propagandist version of events?

Israel blew up a lot of schools in Gaza and destroyed the Gaza Zoo killing many of the animals there with gratuitous gunfire and not just gratuitous bombs. Here is what the Israeli military told the Jewish State back home about why they did this. See Hamas Booby Trapped School and Zoo ...As one can see, it is essentially a variation of the old time worn out excuse by both the US and Israeli militaries, that the opposition forces were cowardly and hiding themselves behind children, and in this case of the Israeli Gaza Zoo rampage hiding themselves behind even zoo animals! In the Vietnam War, the US government used this as its excuse for why they bombed villagers in Vietnamese held areas with napalm. They didn't mean to hurt anyone that was innocent they always said, but the bad guys were hiding themselves behind women and children and using poor folk as screens! In Iraq, the excuse for destroying places like Fallujah was much the same and now the Israeli military is using the same rationale behind its recent rampages of destruction through Lebanon and Gaza. Same lies, just new uses for them in new places. Here is another video about this wanton destruction by the Israeli military. IDF kills Gaza Zoo animals ~ destroys children's theatre... Whose video explanation do you buy? Perhaps the Israeli military version of the Zoo massacre? It certainly has been seen by a lot more people than has the video of the Palestinian zoo keeper. But let's go back and think about the Israeli version of events some, shall we? What did the military spokesman tell and show us in the beginning of the video? He showed us a detonator (in the zoo) and started walking alongside some wires. He mentioned that each and every animal in the zoo was booby trapped to kill Israeli soldiers, as the camera pointed to some birds! He claimed that the detonator led out of the zoo and across to a school, one only of 67 destroyed by Israel in Gaza. He didn't show us the wires leading to the other 66 schools but I guess that was certainly implied as to why it was also so seemingly necessary to destroy all those other 66 schools, too. Soldier safety issues! Good ol' Israel. They don't want to do it, but they have to! But look again! Those wires are just lying out in the open, aren't they? So is the detonator! How convenient that must be for the Israeli soldiers! Certainly convenient for the Israeli propagandist, that is. Those stupid idiotic Hamas! They forgot to hide the detonator and wiring away from camera view! Amazing!

Time-line of the IDF assault on Gaza.

OK, this isn't going to be precise. Gaza was under attack from the IDF through "The Fence" and the Starvation Sanctions imposed by Israel long before the rocket attacks. Because Hamas had been ELECTED as representatives. That makes the Sanctions an unlawful act of war in and of themselves. It also leaves open the notion, which IDF doesn't disprove in any way, that the rocket attacks were actually staged. That and the known FACT that they weren't actually hitting real targets in Israel. As quickly acknowledged by the IDF spokesfreaks before quickly moving on to More "Kill all Arabs" hate speech. Depriving people in a Nation that Does Not Fall Under Your Jurisprudence of food and medicines and other necessities of life under the excuse that you don't like the people they elected as a Government? That's hubris of a high order. Welcome BACK, "Melissa Cook" Your IP address is exactly the same one as Ali Duran. Didn't even bother switching to a masquerade server. Unless you're sitting on Its lap you must be the same Anonymous Entity which is Afraid to Reveal Its Name. When you stole the name "Melissa" out of the phone book, perhaps it just shows your general lack of education, but Melissa means (Roughly) "sweet" in Latin. Mel being "honey". Such a Sweet Name for such a Bitter Troll. Does your Hatred burn, like the fires of Hell? What, were you rejected by the American Army? or was it their puppets in IDF? Trust me you're not missing much by not being in the military. Unless you feel a life totally dedicated to Obedience to other people is some kind of beneficial lifestyle. so giyus recruited you.

Be a Soldier For Israel, even though we don't represent all of Israel even, and certainly not all Jews! Be a Soldier for us even though you get no compensation other than being able to call yourself, privately so you don't embarrass us, A Genuine Israeli War Hero!" Maybe if you could get over your internal confusion and decide once and for all whether you're a girl or a boy the Real Military might accept you.

I am the soldier who slept in your home.

When Voices For Creative Nonviolence activist Kathy Kelly visited Colorado Springs, she spoke of survivors of a family in Gaza who returned to their home to find a message left etched on their wall by an IDF soldier, it read "Sorry." Kelly saw in it the glimmer of hope that Israeli soldiers were beginning to show some humanity. Hasbara efforts have taken this gesture a reservist's letter step further. You can read it below uncut. Does it look to you like these propagandists need some counseling advice? Probably the rapist is the last person who should be asking his victim to be calm, especially by recounting the details of the violation, and especially if the rapist is unrepentant and laying out the justification for his act. Parental Advisory: Graphic Insensitivity. Holy Fucking Shit you will not believe it! It's one thing for us to tolerate pedantic lectures online, quite another if the bastard had quartered in our home in the meantime. From AISH, via Israel Activism and the Hasbara fellowships. Seriously, this is a letter the Israeli press is touting to try to reach Gazans with the message that they must blame Hamas. DEAR CITIZEN OF GAZA: I am the soldier who slept in your home. Hello, While the world watches the ruins in Gaza, you return to your home which remains standing. However, I am sure that it is clear to you that someone was in your home while you were away. I am that someone. I spent long hours imagining how you would react when you walked into your home. How you would feel when you understood that IDF soldiers had slept on your mattresses and used your blankets to keep warm. I knew that it would make you angry and sad and that you would feel this violation of the most intimate areas of your life by those defined as your enemies, with stinging humiliation. I am convinced that you hate me with unbridled hatred, and you do not have even the tiniest desire to hear what I have to say. At the same time, it is important for me to say the following in the hope that there is even the minutest chance that you will hear me. I spent many days in your home. You and your family's presence was felt in every corner. I saw your family portraits on the wall, and I thought of my family. I saw your wife's perfume bottles on the bureau, and I thought of my wife. I saw your children's toys and their English language schoolbooks. I saw your personal computer and how you set up the modem and wireless phone next to the screen, just as I do. I wanted you to know that despite the immense disorder you found in your house that was created during a search for explosives and tunnels (which were indeed found in other homes), we did our best to treat your possessions with respect. When I moved the computer table, I disconnected the cables and lay them down neatly

Denise was Mitch was Mary was Ronald

Etc, etc. Lest comment responses be perceived to address a fresh GIYUS, hasbara, cyber-friend of Israel. "They" parrot the same Internet Megaphone IDF propaganda talking points: Gaza is not occupied, there was no genocide, Israel's birthright to exist is a moot point, Zionism is neither racism nor Apartheid, anti-Arab Professor Bernard Lewis, the greenhouses gifted by Israel, CAMERA articles, etc. UPDATE: The original title of this post was: Denise was Mitch was Mary was Ronald Now: Alex is Walid is Peter is Allan is Ali is Sean is Denise... Our Newark NJ gender switching Bob & Carol & Tom & Alice just jumped [back] from IP 96.242 to 71.187. Posters, notice the comment IP when you reply to "Denise" or his next impersonation.

It may be only cricket to give "Denise" our ear. Can we hope he/she will develop some intellectual honesty? Looking forward, here are some of the alerts which GIYUS and partners are circulating for troll support: 2009-02-15 U.S. now sees Iran as pursuing nuclear bomb Little more than a

Netanyahu- ‘We have to murder Palestinian children in Gaza because they’re working for Iran!’

"He (Netanyahu) also called for removing Hamas from power, calling it an "extremist fanatic regime backed by the extremist fanatic government of Iran." He stopped short of saying he would attack Gaza again to uproot the regime if he is elected. Israel's three-week offensive on Gaza killed 1,300 people, about half of them civilians, according to Palestinian figures." These details of Yahooo's talk reported by the Associated Press: Netanyahu: Gaza offensive stopped too soon, and also by al-Jazeera: Netanyahu vows to topple Hamas. First off, this Yahooo is not going to attack anybody unless it is because the United States government OKs it. Americans have already elected their Yahooo and he will make that decision, or not? Democrats, are you ready to be led into war with Iran because your Yahooo wants just that? Think about it some, will yuh? Are you going to help the Israeli Jewish people run the Arab Palestinians into the sea, because you hate Arabs, too, American?

My Country, Right or Wrong…

The Unfortunately immortal words of the Fortunately mortal Stephen Decatur,   ...Don't even apply to my own country, I'll literally be DAMNED if they'll apply to another. If, as in the recent case wherein Israel tired of merely watching the Gaza Ghetto slowly starving and invaded and started shooting up a whole mess of people, then I for one and quite a lot of others WILL at the very least point out THEY ARE COMMITTING A MASSIVE CRIME. So we get a bunch of people otherwise known as "TROLLS" riding in on their high horses and Fury in Their Words about "How DARE you criticize a Foreign Country which is actually a subsidized Puppet Vassal State of the U.S. Empire" The Isolation and subsequent Invasion of Gaza was set in motion because Israel and their Puppet-Masters in Washington made the arrogant demand years ago that Hamas or anybody even remotely related to Hamas would not be allowed to have any say in the governance of the Untermenchen in the Ghetto, but the people of the Ghetto refused to listen to their Israeli Master (RACE) and did what "Free" people are accustomed to doing, which is to make their own national choices without the Israeli Master (RACE) having any say in who should be their representatives or how they should represent them. How DARE those subhumans actually raise up and say that they are Humans and equal in every respect to their Israeli Masters (RACE)? Your heroes blew away the daughters and niece of one of the most prominent Palestinian peace advocate there is, because he DARED to get out actual news of what was happening just prior to the Israelis Targeting His House Specifically and MURDERING some of his family. Then came off with the LIE that there was sniper fire coming from that vaguely general direction. If there had been rifle fire coming toward the INVADING PIG ARMY then by international law, that apparently non-existent sniper would have been Legitimate Self Defense... But, apparently, the Israeli "DEFENSE" Force were the only ones who recorded it. And even then, with all the high-tech aiming devices on their rifles, their cannons, the control systems of their helicopters, guess what another word for those devices is? DIGITAL CAMERAS... That's right, they had to be using DIGITAL CAMERAS when they took aim at the doctors home and family, but somehow they don't have any actual recorded oh, what's that word for something that shows you're not Lying Your Pig Asses Off? Oh, Yeah, EVIDENCE. Now some of you trolls with your Computer Expertise might have to back off jamming up the servers of any of us Infidel who DARE contradict your LIES. ...or at least long enough for you to use your Computer Skills to Manufacture the "proof".

Guantanamo highlights the colossal collapse of legality in US legal system

(Judge) Leon declared... “Simply stated, faithfully serving in an al-Qaeda-affiliated fighting unit that is directly supporting the Taliban by helping prepare the meals of its entire fighting force is more than sufficient to meet this Court's definition of 'support.’” He added, “After all, as Napoleon was fond of pointing out, ‘An army marches on its stomach." Thus, Judge Lion declared in his Wonderland ruling that the cook was a terrorist cook! Blame the Chef- How Cooking for the Taliban Can Get You Life in Gitmo By ANDY WORTHINGTON Humpty Dumpty has fallen and cannot be put together ever again, Barack, at least not with you as Head of State. You cannot restore accreditation for The US Establishment to the US Legal System now after 7 years of US torture and illegal jailing there of POWs. Sleight of hand just won't do it and the whole world is watching. Instead of doing away with the GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) nonsense of calling POWs 'enemy combatants, you are seemingly continuing the entire illegality of the fallen US Legal Establishment. How about a new classification for the POW cook? You can now call him an 'enemy non-combatant', and there are many others jailed and tortured by the government you head up now who fall into just this category. And further, since you are supporting Israel's terrorist definition of 'terrorism', why not just go ahead and classify the children of Hamas as 'enemy combatants' and enemy 'non-combatants' as well? No need to change American Law to do that since the American Legal System is already totally on board with the Wonderland approach. I bet you a lot of those murdered IDF Palestinian children in Gaza were cooks, too? Cooking for Hamas would certainly be ruled on by American Judge Leon as terrorist participation and grounds for torture and elimination. Yeah, that's right! And Israel was right to legally use White Phosphorus to light up the situation in a legal manner so that these tiny terrorists might be stopped in their shoes (though some might have well been bare foot). Terrorists should be seen for just what they are, even if they are tiny cooks, too! Obama, I know that you can't turn America around just like that. I'm willing to give you time to show how sweet and good you are. Will 4 years be enough time now for you? Or will you need 8? Guantanamo highlights the colossal collapse of all but pretense of legality in the American Legal System. There is no real reality now, since America is without real law in the land, as nothing but money and might now rule. Barack Obama's bought Presidency is part of all that. It is part of the cooking.

NAZI ISRAEL PREPARING FOR “FINAL SOLUTION”

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, when Israeli Jews celebrate the genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians they stole the "land of Israel" from. Can the world survive the NAZI State of Israel? Why Israel is bad for the Jews. Not that Israel gives a damn about Jews outside its borders. How Israel created Hamas. The hanged Mussolini, didn't they? UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak told CNN in an interview on Monday that they have enough evidence to try Donald Rumsfeld for war crimes. 40,000 Americans a day are now losing their jobs, and all the GOP can think about is more tax cuts for the filthy-rich. Demon Democrats. Hope for justice and peace in the Middle East died this morning, as AIPAC puppet and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that Israel has a right to commit genocide if Hamas sends a bottle rocket over the border. Never forget: Terrorism did not exist in the Middle East until the Zionists introduced it to steal the "land of Israel" from the Palestinians.

Strip Gaza bare to put down a prison riot

ISRAEL IS READY TO DECLARE A CESSATION OF ITS MOP UP OF GAZA? Israel moved its troops into Gaza under the pretext that Palestinians imprisoned there had rioted. As if tanks can stop the rocket fire with brute force. What society has eradicated crime by threatening collective punishment of its subjects? As jailer of Gaza and the West Bank, Israel intends to strip the Palestinians of everything: food, shelter, dignity, even their children, but then Israel will have to throw away the key. The world won't stand idly by, but America, Israel's lone supporter, and financier, is being kept in the dark by a corporate media which doesn't want to interrupt the lucrative military contracts which depend upon unrest in the Middle East. While Israel bombs hospitals and UN shelters, and blocks every effort to bring aid to the besieged civilians, Israeli pundits divert attention to envoys purportedly trying to discuss a ceasefire. Bombing the UN headquarters, full of food supplies, not to mention 700 refugees, with no less than the chemical weapon white phosphorous, and the leading news headline on US networks, including BBC World, is a casualty-free plane crash and, by the way, Israeli envoys waving a white flag while its soldiers continue to attack even the journalists who are trying to document their heavy handed repression?! Peace or Rest In Peace. Why else have Israeli soldiers been targeting hospitals, food supplies and aid providers? Why won't Israel permit aid agencies to bring relief to the Gazans? Does Israel accuse the U.N. of smuggling rockets? The Qassam rockets fired by Hamas were in response to Israel failing to lift its 18 month blockade of the Gaza borders, in default of their previous ceasefire agreement. Here's what the prisoners of Attica were rioting about: "We are not beasts, and we do not intend to be beaten or driven as such.... What has happened here is but the sound before the fury of those who are oppressed."

Pacifism versus Resistance, facing death

Who can begrudge Palestinians for resisting annihilation ? Our PC ideal would be to resist with nonviolence, bare your chest and dare the IDF soldiers to kill you. But they will, and as Israel has forbidden foreign cameras, who will be moved by your sacrifice? But what if you're not being granted the opportunity of being martyred by a tank? Before Hamas' December rockets, the people of Gaza had been subjected to 18 months of blockade, with no end in sight. How do you make a heroic nonviolent stand against continuous incarceration, where you are being starved of food and medicine and you have nothing to do but watch those around you die? What recourse do the Palestinians have but to elect representatives like Hamas who promise to take the fight to Israel? The Palestinians will surely rot in Gaza if their jailers are not made to take notice. What right have American pacifists to scold a desperate oppressed people? In the recent attacks, Israel has targeted hospitals and refugee centers, UN aid workers and emergency food supplies, while blocking incoming aid. Of their 1,100 victims, 320 have been children. Is this how you defend yourself from rockets or how you rid yourself of a problematic population?
