Mass murderers expect your support and understanding

"Israel expects the support and understanding of the international community as it confronts terror." - Tzipi Livni

Israeli air strikes in Gaza strip kill as many as 200 people

Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Israeli aircraft attacked police and security installations across the Gaza Strip, killing scores of people in the deadliest raid since the occupation of the coastal region ended in 2005, security and medical officials said.

As many as 200 people were killed and 750 injured, including women and children, Mu’awia Hassanien, a Palestinian medical-services official in Gaza, said today. Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, called the air strike a massacre and said it would retaliate. At least 30 rockets were fired from Gaza today, Israel Radio reported, killing a woman in Netivot.

Israel’s strikes started at 11:30 a.m. and in two minutes hit more than 30 targets, most of them security compounds run by Hamas, said an official of the movement who declined to be identified. They came after a week in which dozens of Qassam rockets were fired into Israel following the expiration Dec. 19 of a six-month cease-fire with Hamas.

“Israel expects the support and understanding of the international community as it confronts terror,” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said. The government ordered the strikes on Hamas only after it saw no other way to stop rocket attacks on its southern towns. The attack comes amid an election campaign in Israel, with the ballot scheduled for Feb. 10.

Cryptogon notes how the price of gold spiked ahead of this attack and links this to other similar events.

And let's talk about those rockets, the ones used to justify this attack. Here is Sarkozy, speaking presumably for the EU, citing them obliquely. The asshole Bush cites them directly:
President Nicholas Sarkozy of France, who holds the rotating European Union presidency, said he “firmly condemns the irresponsible provocations that have led to this situation, [the rockets] as well as the disproportionate use of force,” according to an e-mailed statement.

...In Washington, White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said in an e-mailed statement from President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, that “Hamas’s continued rocket attacks into Israel must cease if the violence is to stop.” He also urged “Israel to avoid civilian casualties as it targets Hamas in Gaza.”
The rockets get top billing. Oh and by the way, watch that disproportionate force and try to avoid the women and children, ok? please & thanks. Love, Nick and George. We support you, because we mass murderers gotta stick together.

Here are some questions about those rockets:
The picture published at the ORF website is credited to "MOHAMED SABER/EPA". Those are two first names and no family name. Who is this person? Why does he not present himself with a family name as any Arab would do? Does he exist at all or is he a fabrication?

The rockets depicted in that picture (and on the video) look more like the fancy bengalas which can be bought in many shops all over the world before festivities than any known weapon.

These so-called "rockets" appear to not have place for fuel or an engine, but they are supposed to fly 10-15Km? How do they accomplish this miracle?

How did ORF and other western media come into possession of this video which supposedly shows "Hamas fighters" shooting rockets from between fruit trees? Was it distributed by the Israeli embassy? Neither Austrian nor other western journalists are known to go to Gaza, so they can only have received them from the Israeli government, and that is what a link to exactly there from the ORF page suggests.

If the firing of these rockets from Gaza can be doubted, from where else could they have been fired? From within Israeli territory perhaps? Could it be that the firing of these rockets is a propaganda campaign implemented by the IDF in order to "justify" a long-planned massacre against the people of Gaza?

Could it be that the IDF is using the inhabitants of Sderot, Asqelon and other places around Gaza in order to construct a justification for genocide against a people who are already half hungered to death?

Why did nobody ask these questions before showing the clip at several European TV stations? If western media are not sloppy in their research and their checking of sources but still publish material which is obvious propaganda, is it possible to say that this irresponsible and less than professional attitude, the wholesale regurgitation of Israeli propaganda, is tantamount to complicity in the genocide against the Palestinian people?

Yes.

Wow, ignorant much? It's pretty obvious that you don't really understand Middle East conflicts and politics in general.

Israel has every right to defend itself. Since the truce ended, Hamas fired hundreds of rockets at innocent Israeli civilians. Yes, innocent civilians exist on both sides, amazing - isn't it? This is against HAMAS (i.e. terrorists, you see..) NOT Palestinians. The members are cowards because they hide behind children and women (<-- propaganda to get your sympathy) in areas full of innocent people. Hamas killed 2 Palestinian girls yesterday, but I don't see you ranting about that.

Glorified fireworks be damned. Its time to really deal with the actual global problem.
Disgorge the trillions which has led to global economic meltdown, pull back to the original Israeli borders and surrender your nukes. Only after that can Israelis become acceptable citizens of the planet.

Thank you for demonstrating the attitude that brings so much suffering to so many. If you think I'm such an ignoramus, please don't waste your time here.

And by the way, Hamas was created by the ultimate terrorists, Mossad, to sabotage efforts toward peace. So your precious Israel has it's hand in everything.

Rosie,

Spot on.

I hope naive gentiles are seeing the pattern of zionist "diplomacy." First they starve and disable their enemies [who are any decent human beings that can't swallow zionism] while they're talking peace. Then when they believe they're most vulnerable and unable to fight back, they follow for the kill, which they have been scheming all along.

Is there "good" zionism? Can zionism be had nicely? As long as there is a shred of human decency in the world, there will be resistance to zionism. Today that resistance is named Hezbollah and Hamas. Tomorrow the names may change but there will be resistance. For if there is no resistance to zionism, there is no longer any decency in humanity.

A. Peasant said...

The resistance lives both in Palestine and outside it. I think it will grow. The mantra of "Israel's right to defend itself" is so lame, you'd think people would be ashamed to keep repeating it. But no shame, no problem.

rick said...

"Israel has a right to defend itself." Israel is defending ethnic cleansing and genocide for zionism: jewish supremacism, jewish exceptionalism, jewish apartheid.

That's hard for any decent person to swallow. Free America; free Palestine; free the world... of this cancer zionism.

Zionism must be rejected from the body humanity... or humanity won't survive... well, humanity with any human decency.

For over Sixty years the World has been "guilt tripped" and milked of "reparations" by the SAME people who invented the very crimes of which they complain. Now they piously proclaim their desire for "peace, peace", as they parade these rules around their places of worship, and KISS the scrolls on which these odious "rules" are codified.
It was the Israelites that introduced to the world, and codified in their religion, Bigotry, Genocide, everything CRIMINAL that they now condemn in the Nazis
The Nazis called themselves "superior" people. The CHOSEN People of GOD do not like the competition.
The Nazis stole property from their victims.
Aside from stealing ALL of Palestine, as well documented in the Torah(the 1st 5 books of the Bible) "for a place to live",
which they are repeating today, and the Nazis copied and called "growth room" how about ........
STEAL FROM YOUR NEIGHBORS:
Exodus c.3 v.22
Exodus c.11 v.2
Exodus c.12 v.35-36 (obviously "Thou SHALT NOT STEAL" does not apply to NON-Jews.)

The Nazis killed their own crippled and crazy.
KILL THE SICK and CRIPPLED
Numbers c.5 v.2-4 "putting them out of camp" means go die in the desert

The Nazis killed homosexuals and sexual "deviants" ..............
KILL HOMOSEXUALS AND SEXUAL DIVIANTS
Leviticus c.20 v.13 well, really the whole chapter

The Nazis killed those who dissented from the "party line" .................
KILL ALL DISSIDENTS:
Exodus c.32 v.27
Numbers c.11 v.1-2
Numbers c.16 all
Numbers c.21 v.5-6
Numbers v.26 v.10

The Nazis held themselves apart from other people...................
NO "diversity", NO "integration":
Numbers v25 v.4-8
Deuteronomy c.14 v.2

The jews complain that Nazis demonized those they did not like, calling them perverts, parasites, unclean .....
The Jews today call YOU "Gentile, GOYIM, Shiska" pejorative names equal to "the 'N'" word.
Demonizing, DEHUMANIZATION, is commonly used in order to justify killing people.
The entire Torah/Books of Moses is a dehumanization of all NON-israelites.
Accusing others of deviant sexuality, unclean practices, worshiping the "wrong" god, eating the "wrong" food.
HATE codified in the Bible.

FINALLY, the BIG evil ...........
The Nazis engaged in GENOCIDE, deliberately killing men, women and children... because of their difference:
After DEhumanizing the Native People of Palestine, the Israelites introduced GENOCIDE to the World:
Numbers c.21 v.03 Canaanites
Numbers c.21 v.24 Amorites
Numbers c.21 v.33 Bashan
Numbers c.31 all Midianites
Numbers c.32 v. more Amorites
Deuteronomy c.2 v.34 People of Heshbon
Deuteronomy c.3 v.6 really the whole chapter. threescore cities
Joshua c.12 A list of victims of Israeli GENOCIDE
Where are THEIR "holocaust" Memorials!


Genocide codified in their religion:
Numbers c.33 v.31-34
Deuteronomy c.7 v.2
Deuteronomy c.12 v.28-30
Deuteronomy c.20 v.11-16

Terrorism codified in their religion:
Deuteronomy c.2 v.2
Deuteronomy c.7 v.16

BURNING FLESH is "A sweet savor unto the Lord" - JUST A FEW of MANY MANY examples
Exodus c.29 v.18, 25, 41&42
Leviticus c.1 v.17
Leviticus c.2 v.2&&9&12
Leviticus c.3 v.5

Now some will say "Oh, the Bible is not FACT, it is allegory or whatever."
To which I answer, FINE, then so is the portion where God supposedly "gave" Israel the land of Palestine.
You cannot deny one verse, then use the next verse as justification to murder and steal land from People.

For millenia the Jews have WAILED about their abject slavery under "Torturous, Inhumane"
conditions in Egypt. As a matter of fact, their wailing is the same as their wailing
about the "Torturous, Inhumane" treatment by the Nazis.
How is it that "impoverished, abject slaves" have lambs to slaughter, flocks and herds?
Exodus c.12 v.21
Exodus c.12 v.32&38
Exodus c.35 v.22-23
How is it that "abject impoverished slaves" have neighbors with GOLD and SILVER and JEWELS to LOAN to these "slaves"
Exodus c.3 v.22
Exodus c.11 v.2
Exodus c.12 v.35-36
Israel declaring it wants "peace", is the same as a RAPIST declaring his victim should quit resisting.

The guilt trips will end as soon as Americans realize that we are all Palestinians.

rosie said...

Actually the most hypocritical thing is that most Jews are Khazars and have no direct affinity with Israel/Palestine whatsoever. Their claims are fraudulent.
I suggest they ask their mates in Georgia to make room for them. Georgia is full of them and many Georgian politicians are duel Georgian/Israel citizens.
The Russians are experts in the sufferings imposed by zionists. The Russian revolution was organised, led and paid for by Jews who enslaved the Russian people for decades.
The Gazans are defenceless - I rather fancy the Russians would like a chance of pay back. They gave the Israeli/American puppet a bloody nose. Good for them. They would give Zionists bullies a taste of their own back.
But then remembering Lebanon, the Israelis only pick on the weak yet they couldn't even win against Hezbullah.

A. Peasant said...

The thought about Russia making a response occurred to me also. It wasn't even a week ago that they vowed to support the Palestinians.

It's like some vicious thug, let's call it Israel, has got some child by the throat and is beating it senseless, all the while telling the hapless kid "I'll stop beating you when you stop blooding my fists!"
