For Israel, killing hundreds of innocent civilians means restoring quiet. Committing genocide (link: http://www.alternet.org/israel-committing-genocide-gaza-ghetto) to bring down the Hamas government is unrealistic (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39082.htm) and disingenuous. The death toll in Gaza due to Israel's illegal actions is resulting in bodies piling up and residents of Gaza, primarily civilians, have no place to run since they are trapped (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39055.htm). Once again Israel is showing how much it enjoys killing Arabs and slaughtering children (link: http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2014/07/11-5) for fun.
Hamas is to blame for some of this since it tried to shoot missiles at Israel, but with the billions of dollars Israel receives from U.S. taxpayer each year and the defense system America paid for, those attempts by Hamas to bomb Israel failed miserably. But then they always do. Because of Hamas, civilians in Gaza are again paying a heavy price for Israel's malfeasance and misconceptions. Another illegal war by Israel on masses of innocent, unarmed civilians is despicable, and targeting civilians, even in Gaza, is criminal. Israel's actions in Gaza are tantamount to genocide which is blindly and faithfully supported by Washington's criminal regime – which is hardly surprising since there is quite a dubious history of committing major war crimes between both governments (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39113.htm) – and once again Palestinians in Gaza are now living in conditions eerily similar to those first imposed on Jews by the Nazis in the ghettos set up throughout Eastern Europe (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39086.htm).
Regardless of the Israeli propaganda machine, the ongoing genocide in Gaza is nowhere near legal. The Zionist strategy of branding brutal policies as an ad hoc response to Palestine is as old as the Zionist presence in Palestine itself (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39087.htm) and Israel has been illegally stealing Palestinian land for quite some time now with total impunity. The Zionist vision of a Jewish State, to Israel, is not possible without wiping out Palestine and others in the Arab world. Allowing Palestine to form a unified government that even the U.S. government can't object to is not an option for Israel. Peace is not an option either since Israel won't be satisfied until Palestine is wiped out, and there are millions of people in Palestine.
US PRESS PUSHES ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE STORY
Since 1967 Israel has allegedly looked for a peaceful solution to keep Palestinian land without allowing the Palestinian population to become right-bearing citizens. As history has repeatedly shown, Israel's peace charades are bogus. Conducting ethnic cleansing to wipe out vast swaths of the Palestinian population has been the goal for Israel since its inception and is just a small part of the overall plan which also includes economic and geographic strangulation. There are about 1.8 million people in Gaza that the Israeli government is trying to obliterate. Because ghetto dwellers are not cooperating with Israel's strangulation of Gaza, initiating the usual genocide under bogus pretenses that Gaza presents a threat to Israel, which purposely manipulated the death of 3 teenagers -- one American -- as a reason to bomb Gaza. It also appears that Israel's assault on Gaza may be in part due to gaining control of Palestinian Gas to avert an Israeli energy crisis (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39050.htm).
In typical fashion America's pusillanimous press corps is presenting only one side of the story and completely omitting what has happened in Gaza in the past. Israel created Hamas in the 1980s because they feared the prospect of all Palestinians uniting under the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was dominated by Yassir Arafat's Fatah Party as a counterweight (link: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2014/07/10-5). To justify a draconian vision such as Zionism you have to keep your perceived enemies divided and you can never let them unite. When Hamas and Fatah came to a peaceful agreement, Israel decided it had to drive a wedge between them. Consequently, Gaza is receiving the brunt of the Israeli government's Zionistic delusions.
Israel, like its criminal cohorts in Washington, is expert at manipulating information and fallacies to try and dodge blame for their criminal actions but as Washington is finding out the hard way, that only works for so long. Blaming Hamas for the killings of 3 teenagers is disingenuous and those claims were unsubstantiated. Israel will use any excuse for continuing its ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and illegal land grabs. In the U.S., the vast majority of corrupt Congress critters and other Washington insiders have blind devotion to Israel's criminality (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39052.htm). Many of our illustrious criminals in Washington have dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship which hasn't worked out too well for Americans either. Israel playing the victim myth has been around since Israel's inception in 1948 regardless of the fact that Israel is now and always has been the aggressor.
ISRAEL’S THIRD GAZA WAR CRIME IN 6 YEARS
Israel's latest round of genocide in Gaza has little to do with 3 killed teenagers and everything to do with the political circumstances that preceded their disappearance (link: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2014/07/16-6). On May 15 of this year, two Palestinian youths were killed by Israeli soldiers while taking part in a protest which commemorated the anniversary of the Nakba or 'Great Catastrophe' 66 years ago when the so-called Arab-Israeli conflict began. 66 years ago one million Palestinians were forced to flee when Israeli Zionists invaded. Israel was established on the ruins of that in Palestine. Once again history is repeating itself as a future Palestine state will have no borders and be an enclave within Israel, surrounded on all sides by Israeli-held territory (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39053.htm). More than a million people are crammed into Gaza because of what Israel did 66 years ago.
It takes a lot of delusional manipulation of facts to describe Hamas's firing of primitive "missiles" as a "war crime" while trying to justify Israel's killing of hundreds of Palestinian civilians as mere "collective punishment" (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39078.htm). This is the third time in 6 years that Israel has committed massive war crimes in Gaza (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39091.htm) while claiming to be the victim. In his psychopathic delirium, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has once again proved that Israel is nothing but a criminal state (link: http://www.thenation.com/article/180651/netanyahus-bankrupt-strategy) and the people of Gaza have proved to be nothing but carnage for Israel to use as target practice while it tries to justify its crimes (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39094.htm).
Committing State terrorism in Gaza to steal land, commit murder and degrade and humiliate innocent, defenseless civilians make it obvious what the original sins of the Zionist project are and that Zionism is more of a threat to mankind than any terrorist could ever be (link: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2014/07/16-7). The Neocons running the Israeli and U.S. governments envision a world where their will is imposed by "superior virtue" and "superior power" and the means used to justify the ends reveals that Zionism and its delusions amount to nothing less than totally corrupt horse shit (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39065.htm). Barbarianism is a mindless, criminal manifesto which results in the ongoing genocide Israel is perpetrating in Palestine today. The world needs to take a long hard look at Zionism and recognize it for what it is.
US IS MOST COMPLICIT ENABLER OF ISRAEL’S WAR CRIMES
Israel does not have the right to claim self-defense in International law against occupied Palestinian territory, especially when Gazans are imprisoned because of decades of Israeli crimes against them (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39079.htm) despite the lies and propaganda Israel and the U.S. media keep spewing out. Gaza is now and has been militarily occupied for decades during which Israeli troops have repeatedly killed innocent civilians and a lot of children for fun. For far too long the International community has allowed Israel -- with U.S. support -- to continue committing atrocious war crimes in Gaza and elsewhere in the Middle East. It is our duty to put an end to Israel's crimes in Gaza and find a peaceful solution and to hold Israeli war criminals and their U.S. enablers responsible for the actions (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39071.htm).
Israel showed no restraint whatsoever before unleashing their latest barrage against defenseless civilians in Gaza (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39110.htm). In the eyes of Hamas and every other entity routinely terrorized by them, Israel is living on stolen land and despite their best attempts to play the victim, the world is well aware of what is really happening in Gaza and just how criminal the Israeli government really is (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39107.htm). Washington supports, and more-often-than-not enables Israel's crimes unwaveringly, but it appears that times may be changing as U.S. public opinion in changing. The Jewish community in the U.S. is tiring of Israel's crimes too, which are giving Jewish people everywhere a bad name. Putting an end to AIPAC and the other Israeli lobbies that control corrupt U.S. Congress critters (link: http://www.thenation.com/article/180653/room-criticize-israel-grows-are-policy-changes-table) will go a long way towards fixing Washington's fraudulent Israeli foreign policy and regaining control of Washington.
The U.S. is the most complicit enabler (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39066.htm) of Israel's criminal activities but Americans are waking up to the fact that Israel isn't really a U.S. ally and in fact, really isn't a friend to the U.S. either (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39085.htm). Americans need to take a closer look at the dubious history of U.S.-Israeli relations over the past six decades (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39149.htm). Now that Israel has launched a ground invasion, the list of slaughtered civilians, a high number of which will be children, is going to climb quickly (link: http://www.alternet.org/first-night-israeli-ground-ops-kills-27-palestinians-ambulances-come-under-fire). Israel's latest atrocity in Gaza – as is the U.S. cheerleading (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39069.htm) – is intolerable and the International community needs to put an end to it. Gazans are living in terror (link: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article39095.htm) and will not survive (link: http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2014/07/14) if things don't change.
