It’s important that as many people as possible turn out to show their solidarity with the Palestinians people under attack, their opposition to this latest round of brutal attacks on Gaza, and their anger at political inaction and media misreporting of the issue.

Article in counterpunch puts the Israeli POV as expounded in much of the media in perspective:

http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/07/18/netanyahus-opera...dity/

What would history look like if it were written in the style of the “Solid Cliff (a.k.a. Protective Edge) operation?

For example:

Winston Churchill was a scoundrel.

For five years he kept the population of London under the unceasing fire of the German Luftwaffe. He used the inhabitants of London as a human shield in his crazy war. While the civilian population was exposed to the bombs and rockets, without the protection of an “iron dome”, he was hiding in his bunker under 10 Downing Street.

He exploited all the inhabitants of London as hostages. When the German leaders made a generous peace proposal, he rejected it for crazy ideological reasons. Thus he condemned his people to unimaginable suffering.

From time to time he emerged from his underground hideout to have his picture taken in front of the ruins, and then he returned to the safety of his rat hole. But to the people of London he said: “Future generations will say that this was your finest hour!”

The German Luftwaffe had no alternative but to go on bombing the city. Its commanders announced that they were hitting only military targets, such as the homes of British soldiers, where military consultations were taking place.

The German Luftwaffe called on the inhabitants of London to leave the city, and many children were indeed evacuated. But most Londoners heeded the call of Churchill to remain, thus condemning themselves to the fate of “collateral damage”.

The hopes of the German high command that the destruction of their homes and the killing of their families would induce the people of London to rise up, kick out Churchill and his war-mongering gang, came to naught.

The primitive Londoners, whose hatred of the Germans overcame their logic, perversely followed the coward Churchill’s instructions. Their admiration for him grew from day to day, and by the end of the war he had become almost a god.

A statue of him stands even today in front of the Parliament in Westminster.

Four years later the wheel had turned. The British and American air forces bombed the German cities and destroyed them completely. A stone did not remain on a stone, glorious palaces were flattened, cultural treasures were obliterated. “Uninvolved civilians” were blown to smithereens, burned to death or just disappeared. Dresden, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, was totally destroyed within a few hours in a “fire storm”.

The official aim was to destroy the German war industry, but this was not achieved. The real aim was to terrorize the civilian population, in order to induce them to remove their leaders and capitulate.

That did not happen. Indeed, the only serious revolt against Hitler was carried out by senior army officers (and failed). The civilian population did not rise up. On the contrary. In one of his diatribes against the “terror pilots” Goebbels declared: “They can break our homes, but they cannot break our spirit!”

Germany did not capitulate until the very last moment. Millions of tons of bombs did not suffice. They only strengthened the morale of the population and its loyalty to the Führer.

I do not believe the hypocrites masquerading as world leaders would condemn what is going on , even if the children of Gaza were being gassed in chambers same as holocaust. People are fed up with the silence from their reps and not much action from religious orders. It is time to send the message to them starting at the bottom and demand the Israeli embassy be closed. It is also time to question what we believe and what a disgrace we are for just watching what is going on. If human beings are relevant to the future they will need to take action pronto.

Resumed Israeli strikes kill 8 Palestinians in Gaza
Published today (updated) 27/07/2014 14:27

Gaza, on July 7, 2014 (AFP Said Khatib)

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Eight Palestinians were killed and several others were injured Sunday in Gaza after Israeli forces resumed attacks, an official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra told reporters that four Palestinian men were killed in al-Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

He identified the four as 23-year-old Ahmad Abu Swerih, 29-year-old Muhammad Haron, Ibrahim Khalil Dirawi, and Alaa Nahid Matar.

Additionally, an Israeli attack on Khan Younis killed Issam Abu Saadah and Hazim Abu Shamalah in the al-Zanna area.

He said later that Khalid Abdul-Sattar Sahmoud was killed east of Khan Younis in an Israeli airstrike on a motorcycle.

In Shujaiyya, 24-year-old Yousif Abed Shehadah al-Masri was killed in an Israeli attack.

Separately, a Palestinian child, Fadi Baraka, had succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in Egypt, and Baha al-Din Ahmad Said succumbed to his wounds in al-Maghazi refugee camp, bringing Gaza total death toll to 1,060.

The Israeli army said in a statement early Sunday that it would resume attacks on Gaza by air, land, and sea in response to rocket fire from Gaza militants.

The solution to the problem that surround Palestine is to dismantle Zionist Israel and return it to the people of Palestine; for the lands present rulers are not worthy.
