Today marks the 2 year anniversary of the illegal war on Gaza on 27th December 2008.

Israel carried out a surprise air strike against the Gaza Strip on 27th December 2008. Although Israel’s stated aim was to stop the measly rocket attacks by Hamas by attacking what they claim are the military targets, police stations and Hamas government buildings.

The reality however is that Israel is a bully and in comparison to the huge nuclear arsenal it posses; the action of Israel can only amount to bullying. The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. All borders are controlled and blocked by the Israeli’s and the Egyptians. The three-week war on Gaza resulted in over 1400 Palestinian deaths, of whom most were children and women, in comparison to 13 Israeli deaths, of whom most were soldiers.

But of course we heard the normal victim story from the Zionists that they are the victims of rocks and how they tried their best to target only Hamas controlled areas and how Hamas is using civilians as human shields. Israel went on to use white phosphorus which is an illegal substance under international law.

The reality is that Israel used the measly attacks by Hamas, who in turn where firing as a result of constant harassing by the Israeli’s to attack the Gaza Strip. A war and occupation that was meticulously carried out is not the affect of a reaction but a pre-planned attacked to cower the people of Gaza to accept its illegal occupation of Palestine.

My problem as always has been how the freedom loving, democracy fighting West always turns a blind eye to the blatant crimes committed by the Zionists. How can anyone in their right mind trust and have faith in the Politics of the West. Do not get me wrong, the Arab and the Muslim world is just as much to blame as they stood in silence whilst the genocide occurred for the whole world to watch on prime time TV.

The Israeli (Zionist) government has taken the step to ban fishing in the Sea of Galilee to what they say is to protect the fish from depletion. The Sea of Galilee has been a source of life for centuries and has even been mention in the Bible, where Jesus has thought to have walked on water.
Yet at the same time the Israeli (Zionist) government continues to uproot and banish the Palestinian people from their homes. They continue to persecute and enforce a systemic genocide of the Palestinian people. I am not even going to mention the countless UN resolutions that the Israeli’s have broken in-order fulfill their agenda of ‘Greater Israel’.
This bully needs to be stopped and real value of life needs to be placed higher than that of fish in the Sea of Galilee.


American F-16's used by Zionists wreak havoc in Gaza

American F-16's used by Zionists wreak havoc in Gaza

Israel decides to bombard the Gaza Strip with the help of its American supplied F-16 bombers. At least 225 innocent people were murdered by the Zionists occupiers, mostly if not all were policemen, women and children. Over 700 are also reported to be injured by the air strikes.

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert has said that the operation “may take some time” and “It’s not going to last a few days,”. Mr Olmert continued to argue that “You – the citizens of Gaza – are not our enemies. Hamas, Jihad and the other terrorist organisations are your enemies, as they are our enemies…”They have brought disaster on you and they try to bring disaster to the people of Israel. And it is our common goal to make every possible effort to stop them.”

What ever the difference with the group of Hamas, it was and is an elected group that was chosen from its citizens. The only disaster that the people have witness is from the Zionist occupiers and this attack today is testament to that aggression.

Further reports suggest that the Israelis’ actually demand a harsher response towards the Palestinian people. This sentiment in Israel has produced further support for the Beiteinu Party which takes a hard-line approach on Gaza.

Will the World condemn the attacks by the Zionsist occupiers? Will the World denounce support for Israel for murdering civilians in such a manner?

No the world will listen and go to sleep again whilst the aggressors continue to cause havoc in the region. The West who claims to be the beacon of justice and equality has and continues to stay silent over this and other atrocities committed by their friend Israel. Will the world condemn and boycott America for support and harboring a terrorist state?

I guess not, same as always.

It’s a sad state of affairs.

Why do they have to suffer? Why is the world not speaking out against the Zionist Israeli state? Is it because Palestine blood is cheaper? Or is it because the ‘price is worth it?’


“One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, Feb. 27, 1994


Lord Islington argued that the provisions concerning the establishment of a Jewish national home were inconsistent with Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, which had laid the foundations of the mandatory system. Lord Islington continued that ‘the mandate imposes on Great Britain the reasonability of trusteeship for a Zionist political predominance where 90 per cent of the population are non-Zionist and non-Jewish … In fact, very many orthodox Jews, not only in Palestine but all over the world, view with the deepest misapprehension, not to say dislike, this principle of a Zionist Home in Palestine … The scheme of a Zionist Home sought to make Zionist political predominance effective in Palestine by importing into the country extraneous and alien Jews from other parts of the world … This scheme of importing an alien race into the midst of a native local race is flying in the very face of the whole of the tendencies of the age. It is an unnatural experiment … It is literally inviting subsequent catastrophe …

Answering this criticism, the author of the Declaration, Lord Balfour, said:

Zionism may fail…this is an adventure…Are we never to have adventures? Are we never to try new experiments?…I do not think I need dwell upon this imaginary wrong which the Jewish Home is going to inflict upon the local Arabs. (Lord Balfour 21st June 1922 – House of Lords)

Lord Sydenham replied that the Zionist experiment would fail, but the harm done by dumping down an alien population upon an Arab country – Arab all round in the hinterland – may never be remedied … What we have done is, by concessions, not to the Jewish people but to a Zionist extreme section, to start a running sore in the East, and no one can tell how far the sore will extend.

(House of Lords, 21 June 1922)

I accidentally came across this article, posted a few days ago on bbc.co.uk, which stated that ‘The US chain Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled an advert following complaints that the scarf worn by a celebrity chef offered symbolic support for Islamic extremism.’

The story goes something like this:

The image of the well known US television star Rachael Ray was wearing a black-and-white checked scarf around her neck that resembled a traditional Arab Keffiyeh. This irritated a prominent conservative blogger called Ms Michelle Malkin who said the scarf was “a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos”. Due to pressure from other individuals Dunkin Donuts decided to drop the advert. However Dunkin’ Donuts has officially and on record, declared that “the silk scarf had been “selected by Rachael Ray’s stylist and that no symbolism was intended.”

Ms Malkin goes on to argue that “Fashion statements may seem insignificant, but when they lead to the mainstreaming of violence – unintentionally or not – they matter,”

My thoughts:

Firstly the scarf that Rachael Ray is wearing is in paisley. The one that is popular in the Arab world is known as the keffiyeh, which resembles an interlocking net or a chain-link fence made normally from cotton.

Secondly since when did wearing a ‘black-and-white checked scarf’ become an offence? or an automatic political statement? I can appreciate that some people wear the Arab keffiyeh to make a political statement as it has recently been linked with the Palestinian cause but to argue that a silk garment which vaguely resembles a keffiyeh is a criminal offence is absurd.

Thirdly have we not seen the American army or is it the collation of the willing, wear similar scarfs? Is Ms Malkin going to assume that they have switched sides? By Ms Malkins rational maybe we should ban the American army using similar firearms as those ‘black-and-white checked scarf’ wearing people because that would be supporting the other side.

Lets be honest here; A ‘black-and-white checked scarf’ is only a ‘black-and-white checked scarf.’ Those who wish to make a political statement by wearing it are making a legitimate political statement and that is to argue against the illegal occupation of Palestinian land by the Zionists.
