Thread: Israel vs. Palestine

Consider that - "Palestinians in Gaza Face Acute Risk of Famine, UN Agency Reports"!

And that: "All the 2 million people in Gaza are in crisis … and almost a fourth of these people, or more than half a million people, are in the worst stage of hunger, which is IPC five, which means that people are starving."

caveat actor!

Note that: "If new generations are discovering Edward Said, in the process, they’re finding out how the question of Palestine can guide their larger principles. And they are also witnessing the unconscionable. Large scale death from the air, starvation as a weapon of war, the western complicity with the plausible genocide and a people abused beyond what any reasonable person could bear.It’s a lot to digest and it leads to the one lesson about Palestine that no one, not even Edward Said can ever really prepare you for. Palestine will save your soul but it'll also break your heart." THE VERY LAST PARAGRAPH FROM:

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

& note that: "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".

NB: "Despite the violence it has unleashed on Palestinians, Israel is failing to achieve its political goals."

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

Consider “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."

On the day when Aaron Bushnell, a young US Air Force serviceman died after he had set himself on fire outside the ISR embassy, as he loudly declared: "FREE PALESTINE!" in Washington DC, in an extreme direct protest action at the ongoing Genocidal Zionist Apartheid Crimes, the Mossad tweeted - "A US Air Force soldier lights himself up on fire to protest Israel. What an idiot"! See more on this tweet:

see - https://killinggaza.com/ documentary film of life under siege by Max Blumenthal. Must Watch Doc.!

"In Killing Gaza, independent journalists Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen documented Israel’s 2014 war on Gaza.

"Yet this film is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering - it is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and, evidence from the survivors"!

This is 2+ years old, however its current relevance is clear & helps to give even more historical context!!

Aaron Bushnell dies after self-immolating while shouting "Free Palestine" in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington D.C.

Evidently, he didn't want to be part of the genocide of the Palestinian people. R.I.P. Aaron.

So "... to depict Israel’s war as another battle between a democratic, rules-abiding west ... and a lawless, illiberal axis that runs from Beijing to Moscow to Tehran to Gaza City, the liberal hawks must ignore elementary facts about the Jewish state." --- FROM YOUR GREAT LINKED ARTICLE, WHICH IS LONG AND WELL ARGUED AND ENDS WITH ...

THIS "If a new generation of Americans eventually turns US policy against apartheid in Israel-Palestine, as their forebears turned US policy against apartheid in South Africa - it won’t be because they extolled American power.It will be because they confronted the “profound injustices”,committed under America’s auspices, which liberal hawks so often obfuscate or ignore." ALSO FURTHER NOTE THIS 12m VIDEO:

THIS: "This is a great tragedy. For Palestinians of course. For the world and for Jews, too. Israeli society is today in a desperate & dangerous place, because it has painted itself into a racist supremacist corner, destroying repeated offers of partition, with American Jews preventing any criticism of its actions."

Note how - "CNN is facing a backlash from its own staff over editorial policies they say have led to a regurgitation of Israeli propaganda and the censoring of all Palestinian perspectives in the network’s coverage of the war in Gaza.

"Journalists in CNN newsrooms in the USA and overseas say that broadcasts have been skewed by management edicts and a 'story-approval process' that has resulted in highly partial coverage of the Hamas massacre on 7 October and Israel’s retaliatory attack on Gaza.

“The majority of news since the war began,regardless of how accurate the initial reporting, has been skewed by a systemic and institutional bias within the network toward Israel,” - said one CNN staffer. “Ultimately, CNN’s coverage of the Israel-Gaza war amounts to journalistic malpractice.”

"According to accounts from six CNN staffers in multiple newsrooms and more than a dozen internal memos & emails obtained by the Guardian .. daily news decisions are shaped by a flow of directives from the CNN headquarters in Atlanta that have set strict guidelines on coverage.

"They include tight restrictions on quoting Hamas and reporting other Palestinian perspectives, while Israel government statements are taken at face value. In addition, every story on the conflict must be cleared by the Jerusalem bureau before broadcast or publication." - FROM:

ergo - fiat lux!


Note: "The Jerusalem bureau has long reviewed all CNN stories relating to Israel and Palestine.

Now, it is helping shape the network’s coverage of the war." Shocking but sadly, not surprising!!

Note how "The horrors in Gaza are just one part of Israel’s unified system of controlling Palestinians from the river to the sea"! - FROM:

From which - "It is an elemental law of physics: When you put the contents of a closed system under pressure, you run the risk of explosion. For decades, the equation has been the same: blockade and bombardment in Gaza; more settlement expansion, oppression, and displacement, in the West Bank; disenfranchisement in East Jerusalem & violation of the delicate status quo at the al-Aqsa compound; and the closure of public space to any meaningful dissent in Israel. Israeli scholar Baruch Kimmerling described this as 'politicide' the systematic destruction of a Palestinian political identity and existence. Time after time, in one region or another, separately or in unison, peacefully or lethally .. Palestinians inevitably react. Israel then doubles down on its use of force, and the vicious cycle continues." Also ...

"Edward Said seems like a prophet: 20 years on there's a hunger for his narrative" by Moustafa Bayoumi


Edward Said, RIP, was the one who told the truth.

Listen to these searing words written decades ago, yet which couldn't be more apt for today:

"“But it is overridden or hidden no matter how overpoweringly cruel, no matter how inhuman and barbaric, no matter how loudly Israel proclaims what it is doing. To bomb a hospital; to use napalm against civilians; to require Palestinian men and boys to crawl, or bark, or scream ‘Arafat is a whore’s son’; to break the arms and legs of children; to confine people in desert detention camps without adequate space, sanitation, water or legal charge; to use teargas in schools: All these are horrific acts, whether they are part of a war against ‘terrorism’ or the requirements of security. Not to note them, not to remember them, not to say, ‘Wait a moment: Can such acts be necessary for the sake of the Jewish people?’ is inexplicable, but it is also to be complicit in these acts. The self-imposed silence of intellectuals who possess, in other cases and for other countries, supremely fine critical faculties is stunning.”"

Ireland and Spain on Gaza, a different viewpoint, toward freedom for Palestine.


"Ireland and Spain among EU nations striking a different note on Gaza war" by Ashifa Kassam

“It’s an important counterweight against the usual suspects – the pro-American countries – who tend to be more pro-Israeli,” said Brigitte Herremans, a postdoctoral researcher with the Human Rights Centre at the University of Gent.

The most vocal have been Ireland, Belgium and Spain, said Martin Konečný, the director of the European Middle East Project. “But there are other member states who are just behind them and share the same positions,” he said, citing Slovenia, Portugal, Malta and Luxembourg."

So consider: "the dominant information sources that westerners look to for information about the world are propaganda outlets, which work to advance the information interests of the US empire.This means people are kept generally unaware of the cruelty and tyranny of the empire overseas,with their political attention being directed toward inconsequential narrative fluff like Trump’s mugshot." --- FROM:

"As Einstein wrote in a condolence letter, towards the end of his life -- “A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest  —  a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

"This delusion is a kind of prison for us,restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.So our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures & the whole nature in its beauty.Nobody is able to achieve this completely but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation & - a foundation for inner security.”

Dr.Gabor Mate calls Israel’s systematic slaughter of Gaza’s civilian population'the worst thing I’ve seen in my whole life.' Responding to Netanyahu’s propagandistic diatribe, Mate said: “It’s so false, not even the opposite is true.” And finally - please try to closely consider this original - full 84-minute version of...
