Ceasefire My Arse 99


When Gaza was being strafed by sea and air, 500 Palestinian dead to 1 Israeli dead. Since the ground invasion, that total has come down to 30 to 1 and a daily average of 6 to 1.

Suddenly all those, including Obama, who did not call for ceasefire when Palestinians were being killed like helpless fish in a barrel, urgently, desperately want one now from a new found humanitarian concern.

Some lives matter more than others, apparently.

UPDATE

I should add an important point. 90% of the Palestinian dead are civilians. All of the Israeli dead are soldiers with one exception, and he was a lawful target as he was conveying supplies to front line soldiers. The Palestinian resistance is perfectly legal and legitimate. The Israeli attack on civilians is a sustained war crime.

    “Israel: International Anger Mounts” by Felicity Arbuthnot

    “You take my water
    Burn my olive trees
    Destroy my house
    Take my job
    Steal my land
    Imprison my father
    Kill my mother
    Bomb my country
    Starve us all
    Humiliate us all
    But … I am to blame: I shot a rocket back.”

    (Placard first seen in Gaza, 2012.)

    July 23, 2014 “ICH” – The “most moral army in the world” from “the only democracy in the Middle East” has attacked hospitals, a home for the disabled, a geriatric hospice, demolished five mosques, razed entire neighbourhoods, erased entire families – the youngest – so far – just three days old if you do not count the unborn, as in the case of twenty nine year old Samar Al Hallaq (1) killed with her two sons, aged four and five, other members of her family and carrying her third child. Her husband was critically injured.

    Yet again a war is declared against children and the young. Forty three percent of Gaza’s population is aged 0-14 and just under twenty one percent, 15-24. (Index Mundi, 2013.) Thus sixty four percent, 0-24.

    As Israel trades on eternal victim status whilst murdering neighbouring, fellow Semites with seeming legal impunity, stealing land, obliterating homes, nullifying history preceding even the coming of Christ in the land of his birth, the UN bleats weakly, as ever, of “concern” and “regret” some countries have had enough.

    Ali Abunimah is a brilliant activist for the Palestinians and an excellent debater. Goldberg of Jewish Forward (who?) stood no chance.

    A Debate on Gaza: Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada vs. J.J. Goldberg of The Jewish Daily Forward

    PS Goldberg got away with the lie about Hamas staging a violent coup d’état to drive Fatah from Gaza which is a central plank of the fake western narrative.

    Sherine Tadros from Gaza on Sky News has just said that the death toll is 715. Truly awful.

    The ghastly Hammond who is in Tel Aviv says that the UNHRC inquiry is ‘unhelpful’. Another FCO bastard is in office. But never mind, he’s our bastard.

    Letters to the Guardian yesterday.

    Setting the agenda in coverage of Gaza and MH17
    23 July 2014
    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/23/israel-gaza-mh17-disparity-partiality-coverage

    Note the NuLabour shill for Israel at the end.

    • Karl Sabbagh is absolutely right to say: “If the British had bombed and mortared houses in Catholic districts of Northern Ireland … and tried to justify it on the basis that it was trying to stop IRA terrorism, there would have been an outcry” (Letters, 23 July). But the analogy is a false one. Sinn Féin was not firing rockets daily at the civilian population of the UK in the way Hamas has been doing intermittently but all too frequently to Israel ever since Israel withdrew from Gaza.

    PS I get it. He is board member of the New Israel Fund. He should have made that clear in his letter.

    Heavy shelling on Khan Younis in the southern area of Gaza. It is a very highly populated area.

    23 Palestinians killed in Gaza Strip since midnight

    5 killed in shelling on al-Qarrara in Khan Younis
    23/07/2014
    GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Five Palestinians were killed in the neighborhood of al-Qarrara in Khan Younis on Wednesday amid heavy Israeli shelling.

    Medics dug the bodies of Mahmoud and Nour al-Abadleh as well as Hassan Khalil Salah Abu Jamus, 29, and Muhammad Farid al-Astal from the rubble of buildings in two separate areas.

    A fifth body was also recovered but was still unidentified.

    There is now a total of 4,500 people injured. Some of those will wish that they had died such as their injuries. Medical supplies are down to almost nil.

    …such are their injuries.

    A Tania Bryer is reviewing the papers on Sky News. She does sleb interviews for some US channel. She is Jewish and all she had to say when the shocking Gaza headlines came up was that the 600,000 Jews in France are now very frightened for their safety and that this is 70 years after the war. She was presumably alluding to anti-Semitism, Kristallnacht and the holocaust.

    Finally, the slaughter of children by an evil regime is deemed worthy of topping the BBC’s news agenda. Except this time we are not targeting said evil regime for removal.

    These guys are our friends.

    Democratic Israel, we are told, shares our values.

    As everyone with even a rudimentary set of emotional parameters would surely agree – no it fucking well does not.

    Israel must be shunned. We must turn our backs in silence. No fuss, no fireworks, no ugly scene.

    We must abjure what is inhuman.
