Thread: Israel Attacking Gaza Via Land, Air and Sea
[-] 1 points by ImNotMe (1488) 8 hours ago

Note “Sanctions On Israel Are The Only Hope” by Israel’s most distinguished journalist Gideon Levy:

From which,this: "Gideon Levy is a man of immense moral courage and leadership: the award-winning Ha’aretz columnist has spoken out against the atrocities committed against the Palestinian people and has become an increasingly lone voice.Here he tells how Israeli society has degenerated to a terrifying degree,why he has so little hope,the forgotten horrors of the West Bank and why the only chance for a just peace will come from sanctions against Israel." And finally, please consider the information here ...

"The genocide in Gaza is the final stage of a process begun by Israel decades ago. Anyone who didn't see this coming blinded themselves to the character and ultimate goals of the apartheid state." AND ...

Noting - “I believe the U.S. to be complicit in creating the conditions for famine,” one USAID staffer said.

as - "A Palestinian from Gaza dies in prison, yet the Israel Prison Service does not think it should report the circumstances of his death to the public because he was not a citizen of the state"!

274 Palestinians killed to rescue 4 hostages in a criminal massacre.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/jun/09/israel-gaza-hostages-rescue-eu-outrage

"Israeli attacks in central Gaza killed scores of Palestinians, many of them civilians, on Saturday amid a special forces operation to free four hostages held there, with the death toll sparking international outrage.

At least 274 Palestinians were killed and 698 wounded in Israeli strikes on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, Gaza’s health ministry said on Sunday. The Israeli military said its forces came under heavy fire during the daytime operation.

The EU’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, called it a “massacre”, while the UN’s aid chief described in graphic detail scenes of “shredded bodies on the ground”.

“Nuseirat refugee camp is the epicentre of the seismic trauma that civilians in Gaza continue to suffer,” Martin Griffiths said in a post on X, calling for a ceasefire and the release of all hostages."

https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cw44ve90dppo

"Afterwards, people's bodies were in pieces, scattered in the streets, and blood stained the walls," he said."

The key to this is that the Israeli state doesn't see Palestinians as fully human and they never will unless they are made to by the world community.

Thread: This website has been compromised - data breach
[-] 1 points by ImNotMe (1488) 12 hours ago

This site is still secure enough for now and is mainly accessed by a few diehards, trying to keep the info sharing going. New entrants can't join & the DNC/Likud faction, who had infiltrated the mods here, have been ejected long ago. You can still post primary posts (like the one I am replying to here) & make reply comments (such as this) IF you have a valid password. If I may ask you; when is your e-mail dated and who is it from? Further please consider that ...

However recent events in ME have meant that serious international matters have somewhat taken over posts and comments recently & given the extent and quality of the info still shared here - it would be no surprise whatsoever sadly, IF this site is under new external attacks, especially during an election year! If you are so inclined & have any useful, informed contributions to make - please don't hesitate to do so.

PS: In keeping with events in Gaza: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDT4IwxfCaU w/ Abby Martin & Rania Khalek, who is a Palestinian American journalist. This conversational exchange speaks volumes!

Now consider "To those who are afraid - reflect on the roots of your fear"! .. by Jacob Engelberg:

"Zionism depends on a terrified diaspora. But a Jewish ethnostate that subjugates Palestinians in our name does not make anyone safe"!!!

"What do you call People Who Fight on Their Own Land Against Foreign Soldiers?" by Amira Hass:

Which ends with this: "Does the wholesale killing of their families – in Israeli bombings that, with the approval of IDF legal advisers, kill 20 or 30 people including women, children and elderly, to kill one “legitimate” target – deter other young people?

"How many of them are motivated by it to join the Hamas army? The failure of a total victory doctrine does not derive from Netanyahu’s personal motivations to endlessly continue this cruel war. It comes from most Israelis' refusal to grasp that the oppressed Palestinian people . . . are no longer willing or able, to go along with its oppression. And that includes many opponents of the war and of Hamas."

NB "All decent Israelis must ask themselves the following questions: Is their country committing war crimes in Gaza? If so, how should they be stopped? How should the culprits be punished? Who can punish them? Is it reasonable for crimes to go unprosecuted and criminals to be exculpated?"

as - "Israel’s finance minister would build three illegal settlements for every nation that recognizes a Palestinian state"!!

Try to consider that "Israel Knew Hamas’s Attack Plan Over a Year Ago - The New York Times"!!!

and note: "Ronen Bergman is a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, based in Tel Aviv. His latest book is “Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations” published by Random House, via the New York Times".

"The notion that the war would end if Hamas was overthrown or surrenders is as ahistorical as it is false"

NB: "The Grayzone has obtained slides from a confidential Israel lobby presentation based on data from Republican pollster - Frank Luntz. They contain talking points for politicians and public figures seeking to justify Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip."

"Towers of Ivory & Steel" Jewish Scholar Says Israeli Universities Deny Palestinian Freedom"!

And note "Israeli scholar Maya Wind’s new book - 'Towers of Ivory and Steel: How Israeli Universities Deny Palestinian Freedom'.. documents how Israeli universities directly constrain Palestinian rights by supporting & even developing the policies of occupation and apartheid used by the Israeli state.“In the West, Israeli universities are considered bastions of pluralism and democracy. But in fact … they are a central pillar of the Israeli regime's of oppression against Palestinians,” says Wind. She also discusses Israel’s “scholasticide" in Gaza, the "intentional destruction of Palestinian education” - & the movement of conscientious objectors to Israel’s mandatory conscription, in which she took part when she refused to enlist in the army at age 18 and served 40 days in a military prison."

So "Israel relies on Western Islamophobic pretenses to further its foreign policy agenda in delegitimizing Palestinian grievance, leaving the occupied state’s colonization unquestioned. It dismisses responsibility for historical crimes committed against Palestinians such as ethnic cleansing, collective punishment and apartheid because the victims of the crimes are either part of a homogenous group of radicalism or - are subhuman. If the Palestinians were a Euro-Christian people then we can rest assured the West wouldn’t have stood idly by, as Israel dropped chemical weapons on Gaza in 2008 and then - also bulldozed over 28,000 Palestinian homes since 1967.

And - "Zionism needs the Western sympathizing countries to remain Islamophobic. Despite Netanyahu’s plea that ... “it’s not Islam. Its militant Islam” - his country continues to benefit from the proliferation of the doctrine. As long as Israel floats in its “sea of red-Arab Muslim terror”, it'll remain in perpetual victimhood while simultaneously being a colonial-occupying power in Palestine." FROM:

Gaza violence greater than WWII as the amount of Israeli bombs dropped on Gaza surpasses that of World War II

"Israel dropped 70,000 tons of bombs on Gaza since last October, exceeding World War II bombings in Dresden, Hamburg, London combined, according to rights monitor."

https://www.trtworld.com/middle-east/amount-of-israeli-bombs-dropped-on-gaza-surpasses-that-of-world-war-ii-18169607

"It is estimated that Israel has dropped more than 70,000 tons of explosives on Gaza in addition to its bulldozing operations, resulting in the destruction of all buildings at a distance of up to one kilometer in the east and north of the Strip in order to create a so-called buffer zone," according to the Geneva-based human rights monitor organisation.

The Germans bombed London, dropping around 18,300 tons of bombs between 1940 and 1941, according to various estimates, including archives from the New York Times.

The Allies dropped 8,500 tons of bombs on Hamburg in the summer of 1943, said Hendrik Althoff, a research fellow at the Department of History at the University of Hamburg.

The Allies also used 3,900 tons of bombs on Dresden in February 1945, according to historical records."

Let those numbers sink in.

"U.S. Jewish Army Intel Officer Quits over Gaza, Says “Impossible” Not to See Echoes of Holocaust"

“Seeing photos of charred bodies and burnt corpses and starved, emaciated children that are from 2023, 2024, not the '40s, it's impossible not to make that connection,” says Mann. “The situations are not perfectly analogous, but the moral similarities were very clear to me.”

As "A suspension of Israel’s rights and privileges by the United Nations General Assembly would put much more pressure on its government than Palestine’s full membership."

The Israeli state is openly allied to the far right in Europe and the US and beyond. It proudly sees their electoral success as fundamental to Israel’s strategy. This alone tells us all we need to know about the Israeli state.

What a guy!

But, really, he's no different than much of MSM or our government officials that refuse to stop the genocide, right?

Mahdawi wonders what the point is of writing about it but she says, "The point, I have to keep reminding myself, is that all genocides begin with dehumanization, and we all have to do what we can to push back on this. This genocide was built on decades of Palestinians being demonized and dehumanized – and public consent for this assault on Gaza was manufactured with the help of dehumanizing narratives designed to ensure nobody could think of a single Palestinian as an innocent civilian or even a human being."

"The point is to make sure that this is all on record. Because decades into the future, when Israeli condos line the ethnically-cleansed beaches of Gaza and people look back on this genocide, there will be a lot of people who say they didn’t know. There will be people who will try and rewrite history to make it seem like the genocide unfolding right now was too complicated to parse. The point is to remind everyone too cowardly to speak up that your silence is complicity."

Israeli spy chief ‘threatened’ ICC prosecutor over war crimes inquiry

https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/may/28/israeli-spy-chief-icc-prosecutor-war-crimes-inquiry

"According to accounts shared with ICC officials, he is alleged to have told her: “You should help us and let us take care of you. You don’t want to be getting into things that could compromise your security or that of your family.”

One individual briefed on Cohen’s activities said he had used “despicable tactics” against Bensouda as part of an ultimately unsuccessful effort to intimidate and influence her. They likened his behaviour to “stalking”.

The Mossad also took a keen interest in Bensouda’s family members and obtained transcripts of secret recordings of her husband, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the situation. Israeli officials then attempted to use the material to discredit the prosecutor."

This is criminal thug behavior and just goes to show you what the Palestinians have been up against for decades.

Ireland, most educated country in Europe, Norway and Spain all agree to recognize the Palestinian state.

https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/22/middleeast/palestinian-statehood-spain-norway-ireland-intl/index.html

Of course, Israel doesn't like that and tried bullying the Irish ambassador.

https://www.rte.ie/news/2024/0524/1451128-israel-ireland/

"Since Wednesday, Israeli officials have repeatedly criticised Ireland's decision to recognise Palestinian statehood.

Mr Katz accused the Irish Government of awarding a "gold medal" to Hamas.

Simon Harris rejected the characterisation of the move and accused Israel of misrepresenting the views of Ireland.

Yesterday he said: "Any foreign ministry can call in any ambassador but what I will not tolerate is any country misrepresenting the position of the Irish people.

"I am the leader of the Irish Government, I speak on behalf of Ireland and we have been clear and unequivocal that we condemn Hamas, that we condemn the most horrific, barbaric massacre that Israel experienced on the seventh of October.

"We call for the unconditional and immediate release of all hostages.

"But it is entirely possible to say what I have just said and also say the next bit - which sadly some refuse to say - that what is happening in Palestine, what is happening in Gaza, is a humanitarian catastrophe."

Ireland is at the top of the list of most educated and Norway and Spain are not far behind. I guess they understand what they are doing.
