Israel Escalates Massacre of Gaza

January 8, 2009 at 8:44 pm (Middle East, news, Politics, War) (, , , , , )

Day 13 of fighting in the Gaza strip continues.

Israeli forces fired on a U.N. aid convoy today in Gaza, killing two aid workers, during a three-hour truce that Israel set up to allow humanitarian aid to reach civilians, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said.

Palestinian medical sources said Thursday that the death toll from the Israeli incursion has reached 763, with more than 3,200 injured.

Nine Israeli soldiers and three civilians have been killed in the operation, the Israeli military reported.

Sad, but familiar scenario of gross injustice and disproportionate force used by the Israelis.

Death Toll :

9 Israelis vs 700+Palestinians

Sick.

Israel again is by default is wrong from its creation and aggressive expansion of its borders since 1949. The US is wrong by its unrelenting support of them since then.

This has resulted in the oppression and occupation of the Palestine people.

You can’t use a strict moral ruler on people who have deeds for their houses but were forced out of them by the Israelis, whose children have been killed and women raped by Israelis, all in the name of an ultra-nationalist, Jewish-superiority motive.

Israel and the U.S constantly refer to the actions of the Palestinians as “militant” or “terrorist”. Well what is the alternative? Docility? Surely that is only in the interest of the U.S and Israel. I guess if I slap someone silly it would be “terrorist” of them to fight back.

The Palestinians are doing all that they can to unleash the rage built up over the decades of Israel’s systematic genocide, as pathetic and as ineffective as it may be. Israel has U.S manufactured missiles launched from airstrikes like you do in Call of Duty 4 and nuclear weapons…….the Arabs have suicide bombers and stupid rockets they randomly launch at Israel.

The world is very hypocritical to praise Nelson Mandela as a freedom fighter, who was also responsible for violent, “terrorist acts” in South Africa under a similar oppressive situation, but at the same time brush over Arafat and Hamas as terrorists.

Keep in mind Hamas is the democratically elected government of Israel, and not some gang of illogical killers as the media would like you to believe. Democratically elected by the people of Gaza after Arafat’s death as part of Western influences determined to “bring democracy and stability” to the middle east. Now they turn around and reject Hamas and show no respect for them as the government, refusing to negogiate. So by this, is the definition of this imported democracy become “electing the government we want you to”?.

The situation is further hampened by extremists on both sides. Anwar Sadat the Eqyptian President, and Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli Prime Minister were both assassinated by citizens of their own countries after they both reached the closest ever to ending the war between the Israelis and Palestinians in separate incidents.

The solution however is not in the hands of the Israelis or Palestinians, but for the US to stop its blind support of Israel and force them to enter EQUAL talks and see that EQUAL compromises are met between the two warring parties. I’m assuming this will include a massive land turnover to the Palestinians. The Palestinians have nothing to give up other than to stop making a fuss about being just oppressed and occupied and fighting back. (tongue-in-cheek)

Ariel Sharon, though responsible for many evils himself as the Israeli Prime Minister, knew this was the way forward.

I can only hope the fighting and suffering ends soon.
