Gaza families eat grass as Israel locks border

AS a convoy of blue-and-white United Nations trucks loaded with food waited last night for Israeli permission to enter Gaza, Jindiya Abu Amra and her 12-year-old daughter went scrounging for the wild grass their family now lives on.

“We had one meal today - khobbeizeh,” said Abu Amra, 43, showing the leaves of a plant that grows along the streets of Gaza. “Every day, I wake up and start looking for wood and plastic to burn for fuel and I beg. When I find nothing, we eat this grass.”

I just hate Israel these days... No question about that.

1.5 million people prison they upkeep in Gaza, its just sick and crazy. There is no justification to this... No rights at all! I try to be neutral as long as I could...

And this situation today is just nails in that coffin!

I just ask from all Jews in Israel, how dare you, how can you eat your meal, or sleep your nights?

December 13, 2008

This video describes in pictures and words the shocking details of Israels deliberate ravaging of Palestinian life and society in Gaza. Its purpose is to call attention to the plight of a people under siege, which so far has been chillingly ignored by governments and the world media unwilling to call Israel to account for its criminal execution of the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians from their own land. The video was created by Sonja Karkar for Australians for Palestine on 9 December 2008 using images captured by various courageous photographers on the ground in Gaza, and the haunting sounds of Sada (Echo), composed and played on the oud by Ahmad Al-Khatib. See,

Oh, but there is...there is.
As long as its not called a 'holocaust' (which nothing ever will be) then it is all fine.
Just keep walking and look the other way. (Ironic isnt it...that which was meant to teach us what to never do to each other again, is being used as a tool of fear to keep people from questioning current atrocities - your not anti-semantic are you? See how this works?
People are people...period.)



I do want people to realize that not all Jews hate Palestinians - (after all, we are first human beings and are not confined to some political/religious label.)

Neturei Karta is a group of Jews who truly seek peace between the two nations.

How disgraceful.

I can't see how anyone religious would back up such actions. No one deserves to be starved to death, not even a country's enemies.

This is real torture, my friends. Having to see your family and kids starve to death, while you can do nothing and the world ignores you.

... They are not ignored - at least we care about them.

I just wish to find a way to help them better. Maybe sharing this information is one way to help them... But is that enough?

How can we help them?


Just found this... Somebody is trying!

Iran set to dispatch aid for Gazans

Iran is prepared to dispatch humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip in a bid to help improve the deteriorating living conditions in the costal sliver. Along with Indonesia and Syria as members of Asian Gaza troika, Iran seeks to help the besieged people of Gaza, Iran's Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said Saturday in a telephone conversation with his Indonesian counterpart, Agung Laksono.

My ten points, all my support goes to Iranians today! "I hope you succeed in this urgent situation..." Thank you.

So, are Israelis starving those people in Gaza just to make provocation towards Iran, and other Arabic states?

How crazy are they, Zionists Jews?

Another related news from Iran...

Gaza 'will be a graveyard for Israelis'

The military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine has reacted to Israeli announcements that it will attack the Gaza Strip.

The al-Quds Brigades said in a statement Friday that Israel would be digging its own grave by attacking Gaza.

And I understand them well - What do they have to loose in this situation? - That gives awesome courage to resist Israeli attacks.

Don't they have a border with Egypt? Why can't the UN go in through the Egyptian side?

Perhaps the Palestinians ought to start focusing on their own quality of life instead of fighting an unwinnable war against Israel.

If they can muster the manpower to mount repeated terrorist attacks against Israel; if they can source and fire rockets... then why can't they feed their own people?

Israel has no obligation to feed its enemy. Hamas should ditch the rockets and start farming- they should take care of themselves.

Amazing how a religion can make a group of people so self righteous as to be so incredibly hypocritical. The rest of the world is too cowardly to say anything lest they be called anti-semitic. How pathetic...but, this cannot go on. Libya sent a ship with food,oil and medical supplies which the Israeli's would not allow to dock last week. Now the Iranians are attempting the same...probably with the same end result, but at least some are trying to help.

Forty percent of the 1.5 million in Gaza are children under the age of 15 years. What have they done to deserve forced starvation and no access to medical care in this day and age?

Who was it that was supposed to have heard the voice of God saying that Jews were the chosen ones. A person saying such a thing today would be diagnosed with schizophrenia and treated accordingly.

The Israeli jews are setting themselves up for annihilation...I can't believe so many can be so dumb and blind, especially given their history. What sort of God is it that they believe in. When they say they are the chosen ones they place themselves above others, saying they are special. Suckers it's just an ego brushing and that is very unhelpful spiritually. One might question what it is they have been supposedly chosen for.

The Israeli's have had the Palestinians locked up for over a year, and they destroyed or stole most of their farmlands since they invaded Palestine yonks ago.

Israel controls all of Gaza's borders.

And airspace. a moot point, considering the Israelis destroyed the only airport years ago...

That situation is so messed up and convoluted it doesn't even matter going back to "Who Started It." It's a horrible situation as is, but honestly, what would happen if the Israeli's let everything be>

I havent heard Palestinians making "terrorist" acts in Israel for a long time... Even if they do some now, I see 1.5 million good reason to do it.

- And I dont count mortar or rockets, those are acts of war.

Israelis have artillery all around Gaza, and they do that as well, so we can call those counter shots as self defense.

Egypt closed the borders for two reasons.

They had elections in which a muslim party had won, then Egypt declared the party to be illegal, and locked up as many as they could find. (Democracy in action, neh?). After Hamas won, they feared Hamas and the domestic muslims would form a front against the 'Democrats' (got to love sarcasm)

Second reason is that if they supplied the Gaza strip, Israel and the US would be all over them. The lockdown of the Gaza-strip from the Israeli side would lose all it's worth and people would not become malnourished, uneducated and basically desperate.

I guess the PTB love to have a desperate 'opposing' population, if people are not desperate they will not become terrorists, and where would be the political advantage in thàt?

A few weeks ago a ship from Libya carrying aid was turned back off the Gaza coast by Israeli gunboats. A week or so ago another vessel carrying aid - food and medicines etc, as confirmed by the police who boarded it and searched it - this time from an Israeli port was not allowed to even set sail and several crew were arrested. The Israeli navy have been harassing Gazan fishermen and even spraying them with noxious chemicals preventing them from fishing.

And now, the Iranian Red Crescent is sending another vessel with aid which, I think, is due to set sail very soon. I wonder what the Israeli response to this will be?

Israel says it is countering Arab aggression but it is they who broke the most recent ceasefire (again) which Hamas had stuck to. The collective punishment is also against international law, something Israel is never called to answer for.

I just have a hard time getting along with the insane irony that the jews, after all the hard times they've had, like during the 30's and 40's has built the worlds largest concentration camp themselves.

Puh! Will it never end?

I don't know about the NWO, but that "de-population plan" sure has it's benefits in some aspects...

[Edit to add: I mean de-populating all kinds of people since the whole bunch of them keeps pissing me off. I'm not a Nazi, ok?]

What I have learn about secrets of WWI and WWII, and great distortions in official history >

Real Nazis were, and still are The Zionists them self -

- Finance of Hitler and Nazi party
- Producers for ideology of National Socialism
- Making the ground for future uprising in Versailles
- Forcing other Jews, by Nazi propaganda, to move to Palestine before the war...

And list continues - And making well sense for me.

About "Holocaust" tm

Those Jews who suffer in WWII was not the "real" Jews in general, but eastern Khazars, and they were sacrificed for greater cause - building Israel after the war - For making propaganda, and excuse to invade Palestine by the name of "horrific holocaust".

So, making my point in here;

If you say you are a "Nazi", in real you are one of them - "Hardcore Zionist"... So distorted is our view of life, and history of it! But still we have to remember, that not all Jews are Zionist, and we should separate those from each others, somehow and save them from accusations in future, because not all Zionist are Jews either - Those individuals we should find and targeted from these crimes against humanity.

I just know that not all of Jews are supporting Zionism... But because there is no clear sign from difference between them, I have to condemn all of them, as a cruel and criminal nation today. So, after all I can say; I am not "Anti Semitic" or "Nazi" - but I feel my self as "Anti Zionist"

How I see Palestinians

They are just poor victims of modern Zionism - Like Khazars, and Gipsys were in WWII.

... Question about Israel is very complicated, if you not study hidden secrets and myths of history.
