WTF!!!

From the article:

Some are shamelessly accusing Israel of genocide and would put us in the dock for war crimes,” Dermer said. “But the truth is that the Israeli Defense Forces should be given the Nobel Peace Prize… a Nobel Peace Prize for fighting with unimaginable restraint.”

Dermer’s comments followed a statement issued by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, who on Sunday said that the IDF is the “most humane and bravest army in the world.”

Now meet the ‘most humane and bravest army in the world’:

Ron Dermer forgot to mention that there are those who ‘shamelessly’ accuse Israel to be the ‘land of the thieves’:

We wonder how somebody could possibly come up with such an accusation.


As Gaza Death Toll Surpasses 600 Israel Ambassador Says IDF Deserve Nobel Peace Prize For “Unimaginable Restraint” (ZeroHedge, July 22, 2014):

The situation in Gaza has crossed beyond the rabbit hole (or perhaps in this case, tunnel) and has entered the surreal zone.

Consider, from Reuters: “Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, saying no ceasefire was near as top U.S. and U.N. diplomats pursued talks on halting fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives. On the other side, Israel’s military announced that the total number of army fatalities have risen to 29, three times as many as were killed in the last ground invasion of Gaza, in a 2008-2009 war.

Among the Gaza targets: five mosques, a sports stadium and the home of the deceased Hamas military chief. But why is Israel targeting what are clearly civilian locales? “Israeli military accuses Hamas militants of firing rockets from the grounds of Gaza hospitals and seeking refuge there.” Remember, this was supposed to be a “pinpoint military operation.” Continue reading »

- Israeli tank strikes on Gaza hospital kill 4, scores injured – medics (RT, July 21, 2014):

Four Palestinian’s have been killed and dozens wounded after an Israeli tank shell hit the third floor of Al-Aqsa hospital in central Gaza, according to a Health Ministry spokesman.

Ashraf Al-Qidra said that the third floor housed an intensive care unit and operating theaters. Other shells had fallen around the hospital, he added, with officials calling on the Red Cross to help evacuate patients.

A doctor at the hospital, Fayez Zidane, told the station that shells hit the third and fourth floor as well as the reception area.

“There is still shelling against the hospital,” he said speaking to AP. He said he found bits of a rocket, presumably from one of the projectiles.

Gaza Right Now: In Pictures (ZeroHedge, July 21, 2014):

The death toll among Palestinians from the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip reached over 500 on Monday, Gaza health officials said, as the two sides counted their dead following the bloodiest day of fighting so far in the two-week campaign. CBS reports the officials said some 3,150 Palestinians had been wounded. The IDF just announced 7 Israeli soldiers were killed today, raising the Israeli death toll to 25 (including 2 civilians). A glance at the stunning images below beggars belief that world equity markets (and Israel’s) are shrugging at this escalating violence. We assume they ‘believe’ in the power of John Kerry.



And then there’s this… an Israeli sniper killing a wounded gaza civilian…

What is the story behind the ‘Twin MH370′ (former) Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 sitting at the Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel. Why is an Iranian owned plane leasing company (GA Telesis of Fort Lauderdale, FLA) storing the Twin MH370 at this location? Strange bedfellows you may ask. Watch and connect the dots laid out by Japanese science writer Yoichi Shimatsu Fast Forward: On July 17, 2014 Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was apparently shot down over Donetsk, Ukraine.

- Over 50 Killed In Gaza As Israel Shelling Is “Fiercest Since 1967 War” (ZeroHedge, July 20, 2014):

While the world’s attention is focused on the tragic events in Ukraine, the fighting in Gaza has entered its 13th, and most deadly day, with at least 50 Palestinians killed on Sunday by Israeli shelling in a Gaza neighborhood, where “bodies were strewn in the street and thousands fled for shelter to a hospital packed with wounded, witnesses and health officials said.” Reuters reports that the mass casualties in Shejaia, in northeast Gaza, were the heaviest since Israel launched its offensive, since expanded to a land offensive including tanks and troops. This has brought the total dead count on the Gaza side to over 400. According to elderly locals, today’s Israeli shelling was the fiercest they had seen since the 1967 Middle East war, when Israel captured Gaza. Shifa hospital’s director, Naser Tattar, said 17 children, 14 women and four elderly were among the 50 dead, and about 400 people were wounded in the Israeli assault.

NBC Pulls Veteran Reporter After Witness To Gaza Kids Murder


Democracy Now interview with Glenn Greenwald

- Reporter Exposing War Crimes Gets Pulled From NBC News (Veterans Today, July 19, 2014):

NBC is facing questions over its decision to pull veteran news correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin out of Gaza just after he personally witnessed the Israeli military’s killing of four Palestinian boys on a Gaza beach. Mohyeldin was kicking a soccer ball around with the boys just minutes before they died.

He is a longtime reporter in the region. In his coverage, he reports on the Gaza conflict in the context of the Israeli occupation, sparking criticism from some supporters of the Israeli offensive. Continue reading »

- Downed Malaysian Jet Intensifies Russia Bashing (Washington’s Blog, July 19, 2014):

n Thursday’s USA Today, self-described liberal Democratic strategist Bob Beckel wrote, “(Earlier) empires tried to dominate the world, mostly by military aggression.  The United States has never sought to be an empire.

You hope that most people would laugh at Beckel’s silly claim, but they probably won’t if they live in the US.

Earlier in the week, a Pew Research Center poll revealed that 51% of Americans side with Israel in their current offensive in Gaza, while only 14% side with Palestinians.  It seems illogical that Americans would have such a view, but given what they hear from their elected officials and from the establishment media, it is sadly understandable.

- Knowing war law exposes ALL US/UK/Israel war ‘reasons’ as BS propaganda; Oaths require leaders’ arrests (Washington’s Blog, July 18, 2014):

US military, government (including law enforcement), and millions of Americans (including all California public employees) have Oaths to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It’s hard to imagine a worse domestic enemy than those who knowingly lie for unlawful attack on foreign countries, resulting in millions of war-deaths. These lies include Israel’s easily-proved lies that Iran threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” (more on Iran) while Israel actually wipes Palestine off the map.

The US/UK/Israel wars of the present are Orwellian unlawful because they violate two treaties renouncing armed attack as a foreign policy option, and allowing military use only in a narrow definition of self-defense when attacked by another nation’s government (full explanation/documentation here).

Article Six of the US Constitution defines a treaty as US “supreme Law of the Land;” meaning that US policy may only complement an active treaty, and never violate it.

Therefore, all “reasons” for US/UK/Israel armed attacks are criminal propaganda; constant BS to say whatever required to keep these War Crimes unrecognized (with corporate media complicity). Continue reading »

Former bureau manager for Benjamin Netanyahu, while he was the opposition leader. (Source)

- Mothers of all Palestinians must be killed – Israeli MP (Veterans Today,, July 17, 2014):

A well-known Israeli politician and parliament member has branded  Palestinians as terrorists, saying mothers of all Palestinians should also be killed during the ongoing Israeli assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, Daily Sabah reported.

Ayelet Shaked of the ultra-nationalist Jewish Home party called for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”

“They have to die and their houses should be demolished so that they cannot bear any more terrorists,” Shaked said, adding, “They are all our enemies and their blood should be on our hands. This also applies to the mothers of the dead terrorists.”

The remarks are considered as a call for genocide as she declared that all Palestinians are Israel’s enemies and must be killed. On Monday (July 7) Shaked quoted this on her Facebook page:

“Behind every terrorist stand dozens of men and women, without whom he could not engage in terrorism. They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there.” Continue reading »

- Israeli Military “Denies Targeting Children” Slammed For “Not Having The Courage To Talk To Hamas” (ZeroHedge, July 16, 2014):

In one of the most uncomfortable (and must-see) interviews, UK Channel 4′s John Snow ‘discusses’ Israel’s bombing raids and policies towards Hamas with Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev. The interview starts with a punch, “How does killing children on a beach contribute to your purpose of protecting Israeli civilians?” Regev ducks and weaves from question to question, flummoxed when Snow jabs, “if you couldn’t tell these were 4 young Palestinian children playing football on a Gaza beach, you need better equipment,” only to be slammed towards the end with, “why not be brave and talk directly to Hamas? You haven’t got the courage.” Not the kind of interview one is likely to see on US TV.

- ‘Gaza crisis quickly becoming desperate’ – Oxfam (RT, July 15, 2014):

Medical supplies and fuel are in a very short supply in Gaza, the water infrastructure has been very badly damaged, some types of food are becoming scarce and prices have doubled, Alan McDonald from Oxfam International told RT.

RT: Oxfam has called for an immediate ceasefire in the region. What are your concerns for the people of Gaza?

Alan McDonald: The conflict has been going on for a week now, each day seems to get worse. When I talked to my colleagues in Gaza and people there, everybody is terrified of what is going to happen. We are seeing enormous civilian casualties; about 80 percent of the people killed so far have been civilians. We are also seeing a lot of damage to infrastructure, water system, sewage plants, and health centers. One of our partners who run a health center in Gaza had it battle-damaged by an airstrike. We work with quite a few hospitals which are struggling to cope with all the casualties and also the shortages of fuel and medicine in Gaza. The situation and the humanitarian crisis on the ground is really getting worse, it’s becoming quite desperate. Continue reading »

- Gaza: Israeli commandos ‘running like chickens’ (PressTV, July 14, 2014):

By Gordon Duff

Israel has suffered her first defeat in a ground conflict since here ill-fated foray into Lebanon in 2006.

Israel reports that 13 Naval Commandos landed on a beach in Northern Gaza to “take out” a Hamas long-range missile battery. Israel’s own reporting is that they suffered four wounded and that two Palestinians died in the attack.

There is much they don’t tell. We have seen Israeli commandos before, particularly in the 2010 attack on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish ship carrying relief supplies to Gaza. During this attack in 2010, American born peace activist Ken O’Keefe, a former United States Marine (as is the author), disarmed and captured 3 “commandos.” Photographs of the elite Israeli troops, crying and rather soft looking for “commando types” went viral on the internet.

- Given US/UK/Israel wars and lust for more, what do two ‘supreme Law’ treaties say about lawful and unlawful war? (Washington’s Blog, July 13, 2014):

The short answer is war is lawful only in self-defense from armed attack by another nation’s government, and lawful response is to arrest US/UK/Israel leaderships for unlawful Wars of Aggression.

Background history: It’s easy to document the US as a neocolonial empire; offspring of Europe’s lust for material wealth that spawned two world wars in the century within which all current adults were born.

All of our families sacrificed through those wars. Please take a moment to feel what they went through. Please take a moment to experience the cumulative costs inflicted by “developed” nations’ imperialism and wars, including Israel’s escalating unlawful War of Aggression on Palestine that make Gaza the world’s largest concentration camp.

- Facts All US Citizens Need to Know About Israel and Palestine (Washington’s Blog, July 12, 2014):

  • Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.
  • But, even ignoring international law and that Gaza is under illegal Israeli occupation, Gaza did not initiate this current round of violence; Israel did:
  • Western/US/Israeli propaganda says the violence started with the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli youths on June 12th. That is a lie:
  • On May 20th, the Israeli government murdered 2 unarmed Palestinian teens, one on video, and wounded a third.
  • The firing of pathetic scrap metal rockets from impoverished Gaza, which have killed no one, were in fact launched in response to earlier Israeli bombings, killings, assassinations, and arrests of Palestinians, including children.
  • Since the year 2000, Israel has killed 1,500 Palestinian children, while Palestinians have killed 132 Israeli children. That means Israel has killed over 1,000% percent more Palestinian children than vice versa. Continue reading »
