May We No Longer Be Silent
According to the Jerusalem Post ( December 26), “at 11:30 a.m., more than 50 fighter jets and attack helicopters swept into Gazan airspace and dropped more than 100 bombs on 50 targets"
Thirty minutes later, a second wave of 60 jets and helicopters struck at 60 targets.
More than 170 targets were hit by IAF aircraft throughout the day.
"At least 230 Gazans were killed and over 780 were wounded”
As I write, news reports are that Israel is sending tanks and infantry reinforcements in preparation for a ground invasion of Gaza.
In 2006 the US insisted that the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank hold free elections.
When free elections were held, Hamas won.
This was unacceptable to the Americans and Israelis.
In the West Bank, the Americans and Israelis imposed a puppet government, but Hamas held on in Gaza.
After unheeded warnings to the Gazans to rid themselves of Hamas and accept a puppet government, Israel has decided to destroy the freely elected government with violence.
For the US and UK governments, Israel can do no wrong.
Israel doesn’t have to stop withholding food, medicine, water, and energy, but Hamas must stop protesting by firing off rockets.
In violation of international law, Israel can drive West Bank Palestinians off their lands and out of their villages and give the stolen properties to.
Israel can delay Palestinians in need of emergency medical care at checkpoints until their lives ebb away.
Israeli snipers can get their jollies murdering Palestinian children.
The Great Moral Anglo-Americans couldn’t care less.
Soviet crimes, like Nazi ones, are documented in gruesome detail, but America’s crimes.
Nothing ever happened.
Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening.
It didn’t matter.
It was of no interest.
The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them.
You have to hand it to America.
It has exercised a clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good.
"It’s a brilliant, even witty, A highly successful act of hypnosis.”
“How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal?”
Israel has been in violation of international law since 1967, protected by the United States’ veto of UN Resolutions condemning Israel for its violent, inhumane, barbaric, and illegal acts.
If only our ears could hear, this is what we have been seeing from Israel for 60 years.
Just when are we all going to wake up and stop this madness..
