In this "war", there is no international or free press, observers aloud to go inside Gaza... That made my own opinion making difficult at the beginning of this operation... Its also against international laws.

I do watch both sides - also remembering historical views, and possible distortions in it - I follow carefully all sides to learn their views... Then I educate my self with 3rd party, and opinions by opposition members, and try dont to forget study what international organizations has to say... Or also independent conspiracy study groups... After collected all the information available,

Then I use my own head, and follow the voice of my own heart.

The Times UK reports:

Jerusalem, Jan 10, (RHC).- Evidence has emerged proving that Israel has been using controversial white phosphorus shells during its offensive in Gaza, despite official denials by Tel Aviv. There is also evidence that the rounds have injured Palestinian civilians, causing severe burns. The use of white phosphorus against civilians is prohibited under international law. According to a story published by The Times UK, stockpiles of white phosphorus (WP) shells have been identified from high-resolution images taken of Israeli artillery units on the Israeli-Gaza border this week. The pale blue 155mm rounds are clearly marked with the designation M825A1, an American-made WP munition. The shell is an improved version with a more limited dispersion of the phosphorus, which ignites on contact with oxygen, and is being used by the Israeli gunners to create a smoke screen on the ground. The rounds, which explode into a shower of burning white streaks, were first identified by The Times last weekend when they were fired over Gaza at the start of Israel's ground offensive. There are now reports that Palestinian civilians have been injured by the bombs, which burn intensely. Hassan Khalass, a doctor at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, told The Times that he had been dealing with patients who he suspected had been burnt by white phosphorus. Muhammad Azayzeh, an emergency medical technician in Gaza City, said: "The burns are very unusual. They don't look like burns we have normally seen. They are third-level burns that we can't seem to control." Victims with embedded WP particles in their flesh have to have the affected areas flushed with water. Particles that cannot be removed with tweezers are covered with a saline-soaked dressing. Nafez Abu Shaban, the head of the burns unit at al-Shifa hospital, said: "I am not familiar with phosphorus but many of the patients wounded in the past weeks have strange burns. They are very deep and not like burns we used to see."

Well, you have HAMAS saying it was IDF, yet IDF is saying that it was HAMAS? Who was doing the shooting? Could have been some IDF troop, could have been some HAMAS sniper.

Since Israel won't let 3rd party news reporters in, I guess we really don't know for sure about any reports, one way or the other, will we? Even the US allowed reporters in when they invaded Iraq.

They don't allow reporters in because they learned in the past that they are just there for sensationalism. Isreal got burnt many times with overestimated death tolls, false accusations of wrongfull engagements. By the time the facts are sorted out the damage was already done and aid and comfort to the enemy was given.

Dark, nighttime, at a distance... I saw shooting, perhaps it was WPs, but it's all a bit irrelevant to my position:

The title of this thread was misleading, the OP was misleading, and the attempts to make the US out as the aggressor somehow are ludicrous. There is no way to know exactly what was going down, no way to see who was the aggressor even, and Israel is not the 51st state.

Amazingly, it seems to me that most of those who are now screaming how the US should interfere to stop Israel are those who also don't want us in the Middle east at all.

It's war. War is hell. This is not our war, and not our hell. They wanna fight, let 'em fight.

Gah, I expect better at ATS...

Geez, that was a mistake. Remember the Geraldo "map in the sand" incident? The 101st Airborne should have broken his legs and left him in the desert for dead.

Even USA gave 48 hours to population leave Fallujah, before they destroy it...

BTW, do you see how brainwashed people really are... They are repeating same old, same old, from day one to the last, no matter what happens in the way... Why dont they educate them self - but defends some opinions what they have had long time before...

Like a guy who they knew in school, and they get opinion that he was ok. Then after few years that guy murder his best friend, and his wife, causing terrible disaster around him... "No, no, no... he really is a good guy, I know him before!" ... You see my point?

Just wondering... Life is always changing, why its so difficult for some to change with it?

Yes, unfortunately, this conflict has all of the same elements of the American election. The partisanship is as thick and heavy as the smoke over Gaza. The real crime is that there a many innocent civilians being killed, on both sides.
I do think, though, that American politicians have not done America any service by being so one-sided on this issue. Both sides have enough guilt to go around.
Unlike, I suspect, some of the posters here, I spent considerable time in the middle east, and lived with Muslims during that time. The vast majority of them are wonderful people, who do not approve of terrorism. As a Christian, I was treated with respect. The vast majority of people in the Muslim world want just what we want, the ability to live their lives in peace, and peace and health for their children. I had several discussions with them on suicide bombings, and they, to the last person, stressed that sending their children out with bombs attached to them was outrageous, and a despicable act.


BTW, Janus, I think many of them get their "talking points" from the US MSM, which tells people what to say. I specifically exclude TheRednecks remarks, though. When he speaks, people should listen.

US is highly involved, directly and indirectly... Oh gosh!

- US troops are securing Gaza border
- US weapons are used
- US policymakers back ups operation
- US peoples are funding the war
- US president is following Israels orders
- Tens of US politicians have double nationality

... I just call it USrael these days. And I am not misleading this thread, just answering your questions, giving my opinions. Crime is already done, and I just witness that my self. Its done, and we cant get those people back alive, or fix those burned and destroyed homes... So what you expect?

I hadn't heard about US troops on the Gaza border. If this is true, things are going to get very ugly from here on out, for everybody.

This is all I've been able to find:


US Engineering Corps officers have arrived in southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah to monitor the Egypt-Gaza border and unearth underground tunnels in the area, the London-based Arabic-language newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi

According to the report, the US Military deployed troops to the area several weeks ago, at Israel’s request, in light of its statements that Egypt is doing nothing to curb weapons smuggling into Gaza through the Rafah border.

- US troops are securing Gaza border

Got a source? I haven't heard of that, and if it is so, I will condemn our involvement.

- US weapons are used

Nope, Israeli weapons are used, which happened to be purchased from the US. If I have a wreck, I don't blame GM for making the car.

- US policymakers back ups operation

So? We're allowed to have opinions, but that is a far cry from interference.

- US peoples are funding the war

Gonna need a source on that one too.

- US president is following Israels orders

Last I heard, Bushy-boy told Israel not to bomb Iran into the ice age. Sounds like Israel followed his orders then.

I repeat, Israel is not the 51st state. They do as they choose.

- Tens of US politicians have double nationality

The US is made up of dual-citizenship peoples from all countries, There's a very nice Indian family who runs a gas station around here. I buy a lot of gas from them. Does that mean I support anything India does?


... I just call it USrael these days. And I am not misleading this thread, just answering your questions, giving my opinions. Crime is already done, and I just witness that my self.

The first quoted statement explains your bias more than I ever could. Thank you very much for hating me and my country.

You are correct in one thing: this was your opinion. As I stated before, the video was dark and at a distance. I could see and hear shooting from what did sound like tanks, but that was about it. You stated you witnessed this on the webcam (which I have been watching on and off as well, btw), so you saw the same thing I did in the clip which was posted. You have declared a wartime act under cover of night, from the view of a distant web-cam, to be a war crime.


I state again, I expect better from ATS. Now if you will excuse me, I have no doubt that lives were lost tonight, and I must go mourn them. I do so in the apparent custom of the Palestinian people, as I witnessed on 9-12-2001 as they mourned our loss.

I will be outside dancing in the streets.

Yep, my time to end this session, and I gladly do that with you.

Thanks from the good and honest words, those gave me better spirit... My self I have just visited Middle-East in airports, seen and met those peoples in some holiday places... I have nothing bad to say from "Arabs", nor I feel any need to defend them either - I see them as people I am.

Suicidal missions has always been part of warfare. Most of the known heroes has died in different kind of suicidal missions - Arabs has no privilege to own that honored status and warriors way to die. Propaganda uses those myths effectively in their brainwash agendas, and forgets historical reality of human wartime behavior.

When you drive rat to the corner, it tries to bite you. With humans its the same, and Israelis didnt give any holes to Gazans to escape. We are not in the position, that we can decide what strategy they should use against their enemy, but of course I see innocent victims equal in both sides.

So why Israel doesnt defend their civilians? I condemn Israel military leaders, as I do Hamas rocketeers from civilian casualties in Israel. Why they let rockets to fall to their cities - and keeps feeding up that false propaganda with life of innocents, letting them live in continuous fear?

I have study weaponry, and for over decade there has been all weapons to counter these attacks... Why they dont use that weaponry suddenly at all - or raise the amount of these Anti-Rocket installations?

And even Palestinians and Hezbollah support this truth to come out... By not shooting rockets anywhere else, but just small part of Gaza, always to same few locations. There is still no efforts done to block this threat, or spread the truth about "war on rockets" .... How long does it take that this obvious question breaks out to western media?

I just wonder before I go sleep - And hope I didnt witness any childrens death tonight.

And raising children to be 'martyrs' isn't? Making children show's that teach the greatness of blowing yourself up as a martyr for Allah isn't barbaric? It is a crime, a robbing of innocence of these children. The real victims are the children that are brain washed and grow up to attack Israel.

As promised, I hereby condemn the actions of the USA in regards to any military personnel on the Gaza-Egyptian border. We do not have a dog in this race.

I will also share your hope that no innocent children met an untimely death tonight... or any night. No sarcasm this time.

That's a big stretch from "US troops securing the Gaza border!!!" that you claimed.

Those are Engineer officers working on that tunnel problem; it's not like the 1st Cav is patrolling the border.

You have declared a wartime act under cover of night, from the view of a distant web-cam, to be a war crime.

- Using artillery projectiles against Urban unevacuated are is war crime.
- Using WP ammunitions is war crime.
- Using surpressing tankfire in highly populated area with multiple units, without making no status check from targets is war crime.

That we all can see from video send also to Youtube.
