How zionists justify the systematic oppression, occupation, brutalization and apartheid israel subjects the Palestinians to.
The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping rocket fire into Israel, it is not about achieving peace. The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically-cleanse Palestinians.
Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army… and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder.
When Israelis in the occupied territories now claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population they are crushing. You can’t defend yourself when you’re militarily occupying someone else’s land. That’s not defense. Call it what you like, it’s not defense

U.S. President Barack Obama spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday and reiterated U.S. support for Israel’s right to self-defense in light of rocket attacks from Gaza, the White House said.
Obama spoke to the leaders about the rocket attacks being launched from Gaza into Israel and the escalating violence in Gaza, the White House said in a statement.
“The President urged Prime Minister Netanyahu to make every effort to avoid civilian casualties. The two agreed that Hamas needs to stop its attacks on Israel to allow the situation to de-escalate,” the statement said.
“The President also spoke with President Morsi given Egypt’s central role in preserving regional security. In their conversation, President Obama condemned the rocket fire from Gaza into Israel and reiterated Israel’s right to self-defense,” it said.
Following four days of escalation on the Israel-Gaza border, Israel launched a military operation in the Gaza Strip Wednesday, killing Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari in an airstrike, and targeting weapons warehouses and long-range rocket launchers.
The IDF hit more than 20 targets in the Gaza Strip, including rocket warehouses and rocket-launching facilities. Palestinians say eight people in the Gaza Strip were killed, including Jabari, and more than 30 were injured in Israeli strikes Wednesday.
“But I love Obama!” Here you go.
This is why I didn’t vote for him. And no, I didn’t vote for Romney either. You lie in bed with Israel, I can do without marriage equality if people across the world are being slaughtered. You can’t bribe me with your votes. How can Americans sleep at night knowing this shit goes on?
It is not difficult for the leading countries of the world to cease this ethnic cleansing from taking place. It really isn’t. All it would take is a humane outlook and some empathy on behalf of these leaders, small steps which will eventually cause them to take the action of stepping forward and deploring Israel of its war crimes.
The Arab league has called for an emergency meeting on Saturday, which is much too late. What good is this meeting when 11 month old Omar Mashrawi will be buried? I highly doubt much progress would be made in the meetings, considering Saudi’s presence. The Obama administration has supposedly been the most “sympathetic” towards the Palestinian cause, saying this they have practically funded and given the green light for these attacks to take place.
These countries have been unable to stop this occupation that has been taking place for years, what currently torments me is knowing that Israel will get away with their crimes without even a pat on the wrist. They were not punished for Operation Cast Lead and they won’t be punished for Operation Black Cloud.
I am not a fan of Hamas, but to point fingers and blame Hamas as being the cause for the attacks in Gaza is a joke. Hamas uses homemade rockets, explosives and mortars, while Israel uses million dollar equipment that can wipe out entire cities. The two does not align with each other or even come close.
The answer to 12000 rockets propaganda
Subhanallah!! What a response!
Although not every rocket is non-explosive, and they have killed at least 3 civilians, this reply does highlight the blatant propaganda that those of us so far away from this war simply accept.
This 12,000 rocket excuse is bullshit, Israel is not acting on a moral high ground, yet with limited knowledge it can sound like a legitimate reason to attack as well as demonize your enemy.
I again want to highlight the degree of misinformation we are being fed.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu after his army killed 15 Palestinians over the course of 36 hours, including an 11-month-old baby boy, a pregnant woman with twins, a seven-year-old girl and three other infants, injuring 130 Palestinians in the process. Rocket fire from Hamas has claimed the lives of 1 man and 2 women, wounding 6.
