“This is the life we lead. We die together as loved ones are wiped out,
leaving behind little more than a memory. All we can do is write their
stories and wait our turn”
— Tareq S. Hajjaj, Palestinian Journalist
“If you’re going to call Hamas a terrorist organization, then every single
Israeli pilot that indiscriminately drops bombs that have killed 6500
Palestinian men, women, and children, then they are terrorists, the IDF
and the politicians are terrorists”
— Scott Ritter, Former Marine Officer and UN Weapons Inspector
“Day of judgment, God is calling, On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins, Satan laughing, spreads his wings”
From War Pigs by Black Sabbath (1970)
As international outrage intensifies over the indiscriminate bombing of the defenseless citizens of Gaza, Joe Biden and his Secretary of State Tony Blinken have conveyed to the Israelis that they have limited time to complete their stated goal of destroying Hamas, as even their longtime supporters are growing uncomfortable endorsing genocide and blatant war crimes.
Bringing Turkey into NATO was always a huge mistake. They thought the benefits Turkey received as a member would help the US & Israel in a conflict like the one they face now in Palestine, but Erdogan sees himself as a savior of the Arab world, not NATO or the hated Israelis. Erdogan is still angry over the May 31, 2010, Israeli attack on the defenseless convoy of ships bringing much-needed medical aid supplies to an illegally besieged and blockaded Gaza.
The ships had been searched for weapons before departing, but that didn’t satisfy the enraged Israelis who attacked the defenseless ship by air and sea with gunboats and attack helicopters that strafed the deck of the flagship the “Mavi Marmara” with tear gas, flash grenades, rubber jacketed steel bullets, and live ammunition, brutally killing 9 and wounding a number of other peaceful activists aboard the “Mavi Marmara” including 8 Turks.
Recep Erdogan, the president of Turkey, said Gaza must be part of an independent, sovereign, Palestinian state once this conflict is over and he will not support any plans to “gradually erase the Palestinians from history.” That won’t sit well with Bibi Netanyahu, but Turkey is a nuclear power and a force to be reckoned with. They have a formidable army of over 500,000 soldiers, the second largest in NATO, and Erdogan, not at all intimidated by Bibi’s bluster, is every bit as belligerent and hot-headed as Netanyahu.
Erdogan said “We are with our Palestinian brothers”, and publicly warned the US to “stay out of the conflict”, and that “Turkey is willing to defend Palestine at any price”.
What we are witnessing in Gaza today is a planned ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians, and an effort to drive the survivors from Gaza to the Sinai Peninsula, or anywhere else, something they’ve longed to do since 1948. Bibi Netanyahu has been trying to involve the US in a bigger war with Iran for over 20 years and is likely using this bombing campaign against Gaza’s defenseless citizens to draw Iran into the conflict. Once Iran is drawn in, it wouldn’t take the hotheaded Neo-Cons and Zionists in the Congress and Senate to heed Israel’s cry to rescue them, furthering US involvement.
At a rally this week in Tel Aviv, thousands of Israelis turned out to call for the mass murder of Palestinians, while the Fox News cheerleaders, with their blinders securely fastened to their heads, propagandize their viewers for Rupert Murdoch who hates America as much as George Soros. Since October 7th Fox News reporters sound like they are reading a script approved by the Israeli government.
Russia has made it clear who they support in the latest Middle East conflict and their UN Ambassador told the UN body that Israel has no right to claim self-defense when they are the occupying power, the UN agreed. Israel has invaded an open-air prison in Gaza, occupied by 2.3 million Palestinians which has been blocked from food, water, electricity, and internet for weeks, which is a war crime. Tanks, armored vehicles, US satellites and intelligence, attack helicopters, fighter jets, and an unlimited amount of small arms and ammunition are being deployed against a largely defenseless population. This is not self-defense, this is genocide, this is slaughter.
As Israel tightens its encirclement of Gaza their relentless bombing of the innocent civilian population continues unabated. The Israelis bombed the Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza, killing 50 Palestinians and wounding dozens more, claiming they were targeting a Hamas leader Ibriham Biari. Hamas has denied Biari was in the camp.
Days later Israeli bombers targeted a convoy of ambulances near the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza killing 15 Palestinians and wounding many more. The Israelis have confirmed it carried out the strike, but claim the convoy was transporting weapons and terrorists. Hamas denies the allegation and Israel offered no evidence to support the assertion. Do you notice a pattern here? See this:
Must See: Palestinian News Correspondent for CGTN, Noor Harazeen’s harrowing news reports from inside Gaza, done among completely destroyed buildings and automobiles, is much different than the footage we see of Fox News correspondents in Israel breathlessly reporting a couple of broken windows in a car. It’s like a tragic comedy where you’re not sure whether to laugh or cry. These are the shocking reports other countries are seeing, not the sanitized reports we see on Fox. Harazeen reports that the Israelis are bombing the so-called “safe zones” where they assured the Palestinians they could find refuge. You’ll not see reports like this anywhere on American TV.
Besides the dual Israeli Jews in Congress and the Senate, Politicians in Washington DC come from 2 camps when it comes to funding Israel. You’ve got the compromised and blackmailed group who got caught up in one of Jeffrey Epstein’s “Honey Traps”, or other corruption being used against them, or you have the Zionist Christian or Neo-Con who believes that it is their moral duty to protect Israel or their obligation to feed the beast that is the military-industrial complex.
All of these politicians are pressured and threatened by the powerful Israeli lobbyists, and the defense contractors that keep the US war machine churning. Bibi Netanyahu knows he will get whatever he asks for both in funding and arms, and he knows these politicians will always look the other way when it comes to Israeli war crimes.
It’s worth noting what former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said when asked about repercussions from the US over past misdeeds. He said “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that…Let me tell you something: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we the Jewish people control America and the Americans know it.”
Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, summed up America’s subservience to Israel when he said, “No American President can stand up to them”, after the 1967 Israeli attack on the US intelligence ship, the USS Liberty, which killed 34 American servicemen and wounded 174. The cover-up that followed went all the way to President Lyndon Johnson and was led by Admiral John S McCain Jr., Senator McCain’s father. Must read:
Belief in Israel is like believing in Santa Claus. Once you are exposed to the truth, there is no going back. The American media simply won’t allow the American public to grow up and learn the truth. Why do you think Western populations, including the American population are propagandized and their media censored so heavily? Without it, there would be no support for Israel.
It was not a problem controlling the narrative before the internet, but since, we are only limited by our narrow minds, cognitive dissonance, cable propaganda, and what Edward Bernays called “the logic-proof compartment of dogmatic adherence.”
Support for Israel has fallen off a cliff in the last 10 years and it will only get worse from here. A recent Quinnipiac poll found that 84% of respondents were either “very” or “somewhat” concerned that the US could be drawn into the conflict. Israel has lost the support of young Americans with most of their support coming from the over 50 crowd.
Americans are already sick and tired of sending their hard-earned tax dollars to the criminal regime in Ukraine and a poll this week showed 51% of respondents said no more aid should go to Israel for weapons, 71% however said more aid should be sent to the Palestinians. Alert Kayleigh McEnany.
The American media puts the blame for this current conflict on Iran & the Palestinians without a single mention of the real reason this happened. I have been following mondoweiss.net for over a decade reading articles like the one below about armed Israeli settlers backed by the Israeli army with their US-funded tanks, Apache attack helicopters, 50 Caliber machine guns & fighter jets, stealing land, houses, & valuables while attacking, murdering, maiming, torturing & imprisoning outgunned Palestinian men, women, & children on a daily basis. It is equivalent to Mike Tyson fighting your 80-year-old grandmother with stage 4 cancer.
*Four Palestinians were killed in the span of 24 hours, including a teenager who was killed in a settler attack in the Nablus area of Huwwara. These attacks happened just days before the attacks of October 7th. Settler is the name given to the Zionist Jews that threaten and bully the Palestinians before stealing their land and all of their worldly possessions. Incidents like these are daily occurrences. See this:
*If someone asked me to best sum up the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, I would tell them to watch one of my favorite movie Westerns, “Shane”. While you’re watching Shane, just imagine that gunfighter Jack Wilson and the bad guys he works for are the Israelis, and Shane and the overmatched and outgunned sodbusters who are threatened, bullied, and forced from their land, or killed, are the Palestinians. It sums it up perfectly, you will know all you need to know.
The Israelis have destroyed hundreds of Palestinian towns & villages, bulldozing homes & businesses & killing anyone who gets in their way. The Palestinians aren’t allowed to have an airport or a port, and Israeli gunboats routinely shoot to kill Palestinian fishermen in the waters off Gaza. The media has never had an interest in these Israeli atrocities which is why people see Fox News and other cable news outlet’s one-sided reports as the reality on the ground.
*This video, “The True Face of Israel”, should be seen by everyone who still supports Israel, which includes the Fox News propagandists who apparently get their talking points directly from Tel Aviv.
The UN’s Human Rights Council released a shocking report in 2019 on the Gaza “Great Return March” demonstrations. MPN News reported that the council had evidence that the Israelis committed international war crimes against unarmed Palestinians. The American media refused to report the commission’s findings and the toothless UN did nothing.
Some of the important findings:
*Between the end of March and December 2018, 183 Palestinians were killed by live fire from Israeli snipers bullets including 35 children, 3 clearly identified healthcare workers, and 2 members of the press
*The commission found that the children killed during the demonstrations were shot intentionally. Israeli Brigadier General Zvika Fogel confirmed in an interview in April of 2018 that Israeli snipers target Palestinian children. See here:
*The commission found that healthcare workers and the media were targeted by snipers despite being clearly marked as such.
*On May 14, 2018, Israeli snipers shot and killed 7 Palestinian children who ranged in age from 13 to 17.
*On June 1 Razar Al Najar, a 20-year-old female medical worker was shot in the chest and killed by a sniper’s bullet 110 yards from the barrier while talking to friends and wearing her white medic jacket.
*On June 29 Abu Naja, 11, was shot and killed 200 yards from the barrier while playing with friends.
*On Sept 2, Nasser Mosabeh, 11, was shot and killed 250 yards from the barrier
These are just a handful of the types of incidents that occur on a regular basis in Gaza and the West Bank. Israel, which always seeks to blame Palestinians for the atrocities it carries out, is the least trustworthy source about bombing the hospital in Gaza. Despite Israel’s many denials they have a history of targeting hospitals, ambulances, and medical workers. Between 2018 and 2021, according to the UN, 23 Palestinians have died for each Israeli death in this conflict.
Must Read: Chris Hedges, “Israel’s Culture of Deceit”
Netanyahu is, in all of his hostile incompetence, unwittingly uniting the Shia Muslims, the Sunnis, and the Turks, something even the bumbling and incompetent George W. “Bush the Dumber” didn’t do, why is no one talking about that? Bibi has become a very unpopular leader in Israel and he and his wife’s blatant corruption rivals the Biden Crime Family, and the thoroughly corrupt Senator Bob Menendez and his wife. Since the Netanyahu’s corruption was exposed many wonder why they are not in prison.
Netanyahu held up a map of Israel when he spoke at the UN on September 22, 2023, just 2 weeks before this war started and oddly the map didn’t show Gaza. Baxter Dmitry from the “Peoples Voice” writes that “Massive Oil and Gas reserves have been found in Gaza and Bibi has already awarded a dozen oil and gas exploration leases in Palestine to 6 big oil companies including British Petroleum.” Like the Lahaina disaster in Maui, something is fishy about this whole thing. Don’t forget Bibi is involved with the Genie Oil group along with Dick Cheney who are stealing Syrian oil in the Golan Heights. See that here:
Another bizarre aspect of the October 7 attack is the Israeli witnesses near the border that said it was Israeli soldiers who were shooting and killing Israelis, and it was Israeli tanks that were blowing up Israeli homes that were still occupied by Israelis. With Israel’s history of sacrificing its own for the bigger picture, it should be fair to ask what a reasonable number of “Acceptable Losses” is in order to steal the Palestinian’s oil.
Martin Scorsese just made a movie about greedy people killing Indians to steal their land and oil, titled, “Killer Of The Flower Moon”. How is this any different?
Israel was behind the creation of Hamas in order to drive a wedge among the Palestinians This is from “The Times of Israel”:
“For years, the various governments led by Benjamin Netanyahu took an approach that divided power between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank — bringing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to his knees while making moves that propped up the Hamas terror group. The idea was to prevent Abbas — or anyone else in the Palestinian Authority’s West Bank government — from advancing toward the establishment of a Palestinian state.”
This has always been the problem with the notion of a 2-state solution, no Israeli supports it. Until the Israelis seriously consider a 2-state solution this will end badly for them and others. The reason Israel created Hamas, and secretly supported a terrorist organization that “Doesn’t recognize the existence of the State of Israel and will not accept a 2-state solution”, Then they don’t have to accept a Palestinian state and can use it to validate their rejection of the 2 state solution. Bibi and the Israeli’s problem now is that far too many countries and an awakening public are wise to their tricks.
The 2 state solution, first suggested in 1993, calls on Israel to surrender stolen land in the occupied territories, which no one in Israel will ever agree to now. The Israelis have continued their plundering and stealing more land in the last 30 years and will never surrender any of it. No US president and no other Western country has tried to stop them, and the weak and toothless UN is powerless to stop them, so the brutality moves forward under a mainstream media blackout of the truth. There is no free press in America, which is why our controllers are so desperate to censor the internet.
It’s like the Santa Claus metaphor, once you understand that Israel created Hamas and why, it’s impossible to believe anything they say. To those Christians who believe it is their Christian duty to protect Israel, God made a covenant with Israel that if they did right, he would bless them, if they disobeyed he would curse them.
Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees Blind guides and hypocrites over 2000 years ago and little has changed. These Babylonian Talmudic Jews that control Israel hate Christians and spit on them in the streets of Jerusalem. They imprison Palestinian children and torture them by breaking their bones. The UN has called Israel the worst violator of human rights on the planet and has made repeated calls for Israel to end their occupation of Palestinian land.
Since 2015, the UN General Assembly has adopted 140 resolutions criticizing Israel, mainly over its treatment of the Palestinians, its relationships with neighboring countries, and other alleged wrongdoings. Does anyone believe that Israel, looked at by most countries on the planet as racist, belligerent, corrupt, and warlike is blessed by God?
Bibi seethes with hatred for the Palestinians, and will never seriously support the 2-state solution. He is thoroughly corrupt and the wrong leader for a time in history that is screaming for honest diplomacy, but he is incapable of doing the right thing. Bibi presented himself as the “Security President”, that was the only quality he had left to offer, but he failed miserably on October 7th. Now he gets to be the “War President”, a job that better suits him, but the Israelis and the rest of the world will regret it.
