Gaza Blood Bath: Endgame

I suppose I should have expected the reactions by some over this latest atrocity committed by Israel against the Palestinians in Gaza. However I find myself amazed at the hubris and total lack of concern by many so-called liberals for what is happening. Yes, yes, yes, certainly Hamas has called for the destruction of Israel and Hamas has sent missiles into what is now Israel but as I keep trying to point out in vain is that Israel has stolen almost all of the Palestinian land over the last half century and been murdering untold numbers of Palestinians. This isn’t a game of retaliation between the Palestine and Israel it is the -- Complete. Elimination. Of. Palestine. By. Israel. Get it? Israel is backed by billions of U.S. dollars and is one of the most advanced militaries in the world. In fact the U.S. sends Israel 3 billion dollars a year but has done nothing for the Palestinians, nothing but utter mealy mouthed words about a two-state solution but how can there be a two state solution when the plan is to eliminate the Palestinians from the face of the earth? And look at the picture of the bloodied little Palestinian girl above (Via Chris Floyd). This is what all of us are paying for, we are all guilty for the immense suffering in Gaza. And what has our great blubbering savior Obama said? “No comment.” Now that is what I call leadership, a bold statement for the New Year and the new and improved government that so many voted for, bah.

Chris Floyd linked to an article in Haaretz which tells us that the Israel military had planned this attack against Gaza six months ago long before the cease-fire ended. In other words Israel was going to attack Gaza regardless. The truce was actually in place to give Israel time to prepare for this vicious attack against Gaza. This belies all the malarkey that a democratic government’s first job is to protect its citizens which Israel apologists are using to defend this murderous slaughter and genocide and yes it is genocide. Israel has been murdering Palestinians for more than half of a century. This is the endgame of the complete elimination of Palestine by Israel.


Long-term preparation, careful gathering of information, secret discussions, operational deception and the misleading of the public - all these stood behind the Israel Defense Forces "Cast Lead" operation against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, which began Saturday morning.

The disinformation effort, according to defense officials, took Hamas by surprise and served to significantly increase the number of its casualties in the strike.

Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago, even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas. According to the sources, Barak maintained that although the lull would allow Hamas to prepare for a showdown with Israel, the Israeli army needed time to prepare, as well.

Barak gave orders to carry out a comprehensive intelligence-gathering drive which sought to map out Hamas' security infrastructure, along with that of other militant organizations operating in the Strip.

I bear no love for Hamas but Hamas is not the issue, the issue is the brutal pogrom utilized by Israel against the Palestinians whose main guilt is being born Palestinian in a land ruled by European whites for the racist nature of this atrocity cannot not be overlooked. Would the government of Israel and the so-called “settlers” be upset by the presence of Palestinians if they were white and Jewish? Not very likely.

The U.S. and the European nations have been meddling with the people of the Middle East for centuries and all it has accomplished is human suffering on a huge scale. We have created nations, redrawn national boundaries, bombed, stolen from, assassinated leaders, engineered the overthrowing of governments, and all for the greater glory of our national interests which translated into English means for the profit of a few. So please, please, do not talk to me about how this one-sided crime against humanity is an equal battle between the Palestinians and Israel over disputed land for Israel has already taken all the land except for Gaza and a few other locations which it is now in the process of destroying utterly and for all time.
