Video: Israel set to swallow defeat in Gaza but sets the stage for war with Iran

By lesage, Saturday 17 2009: After White Phosphorus, Depleted Uranium, and DIME (Dense Inert Metal Explosive) bombs, and successive attacks on Gaza refugees huddled in UN schools; Ihud Olmert, Prime Minister of the the Apartheid State of Israel, today declared a unilateral ceasefire for its air, ground, and naval attack on the captive people of Gaza, declaring "mission accomplished".

Olmert thanked Europe and the USA and other "moderate" states in the region, for the "success" of the massacre. The battle theatre against Iran is now set ready for Obama.

The Israeli war on Gaza, now in its fourth week, provoked worldwide condemnation of Tel Aviv, which has been accused widely of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Gazan resistance and the world condemnation of Israeli crimes against Palestinians -- the native population of the land -- are seen as the primary reasons for Israel backtracking on its previously set goals. Hammas has been considerably strengthened by the attack, just by resisting the onslaught.

Linking the Current Gaza Crisis to the 1967 Attack on the USS Liberty (and to 9/11)-- My Editorial in the Northfield News (MN)

The following guest column was published in the Jan. 17, 2009 issue of the Northfield News:

Remembering Another Gaza Attack, 1967

With yet another crisis unfolding in the Middle East, we watch once again the drearily familiar scenes of aircraft strikes, burning buildings, and dead and wounded civilians. Since the attacks this time are in the Gaza strip, it’s perhaps a good opportunity to recall another attack that occurred on June 8, 1967, just a few miles of the coast of Gaza in the Mediterranean Sea. In that attack, however, the victims were not Palestinians, but American sailors aboard the defenseless US Navy communications ship Liberty, who were machine-gunned, rocketed, torpedoed, and even napalmed– in a synchronized and pre-meditated operation carried out by the Israeli military.

"We Are Creating Bombers": Israelis

"We Are Creating Bombers": Israelis

Outraged by the cold-blood killings of Palestinian children and women in the Gaza Strip, Israeli soldiers are growing disillusioned with Israel's claim of self-defense against Palestinian "terrorists" in the bombed-out strip.

"It's not a war of defense," paratrooper Yitzchak Ben Mocha told the Guardian on Saturday, January 17.

"We are creating a thousand suicide bombers for the future from the brothers of the dead, the sons of the dead ... in the long term, we are creating more terror."

The 25-year-old soldier has refused to join the army in its deadly offensive in Gaza, home to 1.6 million people, to stop the Palestinian rocket fire.

GAZA: Live Web Cam (new address)

Get better band width here. As I write this I see phosphorus bombs lighting up the black sky and I hear load thuds of explosions and machine-gun fire. The massacre is intense. Stop this carnage, spread this news,

Israel is conducting a Holocaust! Witness this live!

Unusually Large U.S. Weapons Shipment to Israel: Are the US and Israel Planning a Broader Middle East War?

Unusually Large U.S. Weapons Shipment to Israel: Are the US and Israel Planning a Broader Middle East War?

by Michel Chossudovsky

A very large delivery of US weaponry to Israel consisting of 3,000 tons of "ammunition" is scheduled to sail to Israel. The size and nature of the shipments are described as "unusual":

"Shipping 3,000-odd tons of ammunition in one go is a lot," one broker said, on condition of anonymity.

"This (kind of request) is pretty rare and we haven't seen much of it quoted in the market over the years," he added.

"Shipping brokers in London who have specialized in moving arms for the British and U.S. military in the past said such ship charters to Israel were rare. (Reuters, Jan 10, 2009)

The Pentagon has entrusted a Greek merchant shipping company to deliver the weapons to Israel:

"The U.S. is seeking to hire a merchant ship to deliver hundreds of tons of arms to Israel from Greece later this month, tender documents seen by Reuters show.

Annie Lennox and Brian Eno Stand Tall for Gaza in the UK -- In the U.S., the Congress rolls over for AIPAC

"Our voices will not be silenced until there is a complete and absolute end to the genocide."
- Annie Lennox, January 10, 2008

In a London rally estimated by organizers to be 100,000 strong, people in the UK spoke out loudly against Israel's incursion into Gaza, with the former lead singer of the Eurythmics, Annie Lennox standing tall and proud;

In his typical subdued but thoughtful fashion, the legendary Brian Eno also called for an end to the violence;

Ron Paul on Senate Floor 1/9/09: Israel Created Hamas

Just as the Mujahadeen were trained by the CIA to defeat communists, only to later become our enemy when they started "blowing back," the same is true of Hamas and Israel. I never looked at the Israel/Hamas situation quite this way before, but Dr. Paul makes alot of sense.

From the River to the Sea - Stop the massacre in Gaza

Following the continued bombing of Gaza by Israeli warplanes that began on 27th of December 2008 leaving over 500 civilians dead and over 1,400 injured
50,000 people took to the streets of London to protest on 3rd January 2009. This is a film I made about the day and the Current situation in Gaza

The "politicians" (that's really the nicest word I can think of... I can think of SO MANY words that are not nice) in this country DO NOT speak for the people. At the very least, they do not speak for me. You DO NOT have my permission to continue what you're doing in the Gaza Strip, and you DO NOT have my permission to send in ground troops.

The Gaza Strip

I think Israel should stop immediately. The United States should use its influence to make them stop. I do not understand why peace can not be achieved. Both sides of the equation have the ability to put their guns down and talk. There HAS to be a peaceful solution. Whatever that is, I hope they find it soon. The following are a collection of articles from my site dating back to 2/7/2005. Everything that has happened recently started here, but ended up here. This is every article with the word "Gaza" in it.
