In wake of Gaza probe, how can Israel go to war again?

The United Nations fact-finding mission into the Gaza offensive describes Israel as perpetrating war crimes - a police state which persecutes minorities - and tars the Palestinian leadership in the Gaza Strip and West Bank with similar accusations.

If its findings and recommendations are accepted, the International Criminal Court in The Hague could call a summit meeting between the leaders of Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority on the defendants' stand.

But the ultimate adjudicator on the report's fate will be Barack Obama, who now has another whip with which to flay Benjamin

This is a very interesting article because it shows that even Israel can be held accountable for it's behaviour towards other nations..

To me though, it leaves one question ringing loud..

..that is, if Israel is going to be dragged before the Criminal court for war crimes, shouldn't also certain members of the George W Bush administration also spend a little time facing up to some real questions in the Hague as well?

I absolutely accept that there more than likely were war crimes commited by Israel in their assult on Hamas earlier this year, and if found guilty they should be brought to justice.

But what i don't get is why Bush, Cheney or Rumsfield are not being charged for crimes against humanity for the numerous torture that went on in prison camps during the Bush years?

And that's not to even mention the countless unacceptable war crimes that have occured in Iraq and Afganistan since the US launched it's ILLEGAL invasion back in 2001.

I'm not even going to get into the whole 9/11 inside job discrace...
that day is coming soon enough though... look at Charlie Sheens recent campaign to meet Obama, things are really heating up. Which makes me fearful that the powers that be will try and pull another false flag to distract people away from these issues.

No offense, but when did Israel ever care what the UN thought about them? I say this not in a flippant way, but Israel what do whatever it deems in it's best interest, regardless of world opinion. There is not much hand wringing in Israel over it's treatment of Gaza.

Like it will mean a thing. No one wants to call out this crybaby nation.

Should not the leaders of a country do what they deem is in the best interest of the nation they are responsible for?

Well in light of these revelations, is it really that far-fetched to believe what the germans said of the jews during world war 2, and if it turns out that what they said was the truth then it means we've all been living a lie, and that millions upon millions of innocents were murdered for nothing.

That's a blindly ignorant statement that ignores every fact about the nazi's. You should be ashamed of yourself! You cannot be that old if you think so naively!

I wouldn't take too much stock in a UN 'fact-finding' mission. Anti-Semitism is the group think of the UN. They will condemn Israel, of course.

The fact that a Court is 'International' does not in and of itself mean that is not a biased court. Who established the Court? What powers empowered it to operate as a Court? Chances are the very same people and powers many of us would like to see tried by it.

Justice is often blind, and the scales can often be tipped through intercedence that undermines the very notion of Justice.

The International Court is simply another way for the Powers that Be to persecute with the veneer and patina of Law and Legitimacy those people and nations that the Powers that Be are having a hard time controlling or conquesting.

When your friends with the Judge and the Court your speeding ticket is dismissed, if your friends of a friend of the Judge and the Court your fine is reduced and you can make convenient payments, when your the enemy of the friends of the Judge and the Court, your fine goes up, and if you can't pay it you go to jail, when you are enemies of the Judge and the Court, well they throw the book at you.

I wouldn't look for anyone with a name like Bush or Sharon being hauled in front of the International Court of the Haugue, and in reality never, if your name is Rothschild or Rockefeller, not a chance in a billion years, same is true if your name is Windsor, if you are a Somalia War Lord got problems!

It's real easy for Israel to go to war again.

Just as in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973, they were attacked and responded.

Conveniently forgotten by non-Israelis.

Ok, for starters, the germans said that the jews have a stranglehold on international media, either controlling or manipulating, so those facts about the nazi's could be nothing more then grotesque propaganda. So the notion i put forward is neither blind or ignorant, but with the whole picture and the evidence that comes with that, actually comes forward with a feasible answer.

Jews have been at the front of minority rights, anti-racism,homosexual rights and the notion that there is no such thing as race / all races are equal and yet when it comes to israel, these things simply don't apply.

"It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization, or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands." -- Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.

“I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." — Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon

“One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." — Rabbi Yaacov Perrin (NY Daily News, Feb. 28, 1994, p.6)

"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." -- David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

"This country exists as the fulfillment of a promise made by God Himself. It would be ridiculous to ask it to account for its legitimacy." -- Golda Meir, Le Monde, 15 October 1971

"We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, What is to be done with the Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!" -- Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.

The Forrestal Diaries published by the Viking Press, New York, 1951, only reach me as this book goes to press. Coming from a man of high integrity, who was U.S. Navy Under Secretary from 1940, and Secretary for Defence from 1947 until his resignation and suspicious death a few days later in March 1949, they are of the utmost significance.

The most important revelation therein is dated the 27th December, 1945 (pages 121 and 122):

"Played golf today with Joe Kennedy (Joseph P, Kennedy, who was Roosevelt's Ambassador to Great Britain in the years immediately before the war). I asked him about his conversation with Rossevelt and Neville Chamberlain from 1939 on. He said Chamberlain's position in 1938 was that England had nothing with which to fight and that she could not risk going to war with Hitler. Kennedy's view: That Hitler would have fought Russia without any later conflict with England if it had not been for Bullitt's (William C. Bullitt, a half-Jew, then Ambassador to France) urging on Roosevelt in the summer of 1939 that the Germans must be faced down about Poland; neither the French nor the British would have made Poland a cause of war if it had not been for the constant needling from Washington. Bullitt, he said, kept telling Roosevelt that the Germans wouldn't fight. Kennedy that they would, and that they would overrun Europe. Chamberlain, he says, stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war." If Forrestal's information regarding the impulses behind the recent war needed any confirmation, they have already had it from the outspoken statements of Mr. Oswald Pirow, former South African Defence Minister, who told the Associated Press on the 14th January, 1952, in Johannesburg that "Chamberlain had told him that he was under great pressure from World Jewry not to accommodate Hitler."

Most people are not aware that in March, 1933, long before Hitler became the undisputed leader of Germany and began restricting the rights of German Jews, the American Jewish Congress announced a massive protest at Madison Square Garden and called for an American boycott of German goods.

The Daily Express (London) published an article on March 24, 1933 announcing that the Jews had already launched their boycott against Germany and described a forthcoming "holy war". The Express urged Jews everywhere to boycott German goods and demonstrate against German economic interests.

Holy war on Germany

The famous Jewish rabbi, Maimonides, acclaimed by Christian apologists and defenders of Zionism as "a great man of God," encouraged Jews to kill all Christians. In the Talmud (Hilkoth Akrum, X, 1), Maimonides says, "Do not have pity for them. Show no mercy unto them. Therefore, if you see one in difficulty of drowning, do not go to his help... it is right to kill him by your own hand by shoving him into a well or in some other way."

The monstrous and barbaric treatment Israel gives to Palestinians and other Arabs taken prisoner is easily understood when we realize that the Jews' own holy book, the Talmud, commands that heretics and traitors be killed without delay (Abhodah Zarah, 266) and that a Gentile taken prisoner may be killed, "even before he confesses...the sooner the better" (Choschen Hammischpat, 388, 10).

The jews even make presidents.

Abner Mikva, the former Chicago congressman, federal judge and White House counsel to President Bill Clinton, puts a 21st-century twist on the notion that Clinton was "the nation's first black president."

"I think when this is all over, people are going to say that Barack Obama is the first Jewish president," he said.

Mikva, a powerful figure in local and national Democratic politics for decades, was one of Sen. Obama's early admirers, beginning in 1990 when he tried to hire the brilliant student and first black president of the Harvard Law Review for a coveted clerkship. (Obama turned him down, saying he was going to move to Chicago and run for public office. "I thought that showed a lot of chutzpah on his part," Mikva says with a laugh.)

Since then, Mikva's support for and nurturance of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has never wavered. He is one of many influential Chicago Jews who have been among Obama's earliest and most ardent backers.

One longtime Jewish observer of the political scene, who did not want to be identified, said admiringly that "Jews made him. Wherever you look, there is a Jewish presence."

So before you go making emotionally charged statements saying im using blind ignorance, look at your own and look at the evidence!

Israel has always done what Israel deemed necessary to protect itself (without regard for other nations views). I don't believe that Israel cares what the findings are or whether they are brought before a court.

I am not defending Israel or condeming it, I just think they don't worry what anyone else thinks and that will not change going forward. If rockets target it's population again we will see them invade again.

That region of the world has had armed conflict for centuries and it will continue until the region is eventually destroyed. I think Israel will strike Iran in the next couple of months and have to strike Palestine/Lebanon in the aftermath of that attack.

Maybe I am wrong but the things I read make me feel that something will happen with Iran......we'll just have to wait and see......

like everyone else is saying, israel has always done what they think they should do and they dont care about others opinons.. much like the united states..

One last point i would like to make is the Protocols of the learned elders of zion.
A brief summary is
The 24 Protocols are posited as instructions to a newly-initiated Elder, outlining how the group will control the world. The Elders want to trick all "gentile nations", whom they call "goyim", into doing their will. Their preferred methods include:

  • 1 Alcoholism, Annihilation of the privileges of the non-Jewish aristocracy, among other topics.
  • 2, 9, 12 The propagation of ideas, such as Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzsche-ism, Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, Anarchism, and Utopianism, with the task of undermining established forms of order
  • 4 Materialism
  • 5 World government
  • 7 World wars
  • 10 Staging catastrophes against one's own people, then claiming a moral high ground for leverage
  • 11 Universal suffrage
  • 11, 12, 17 Curtailment of civil liberties with the excuse of defeating the enemies of peace
  • 13 Creating the impression of the existence of freedom of press, freedom of speech, human rights and democracy, all of which are subsequently undermined and become mere illusions or deceptive smokescreens behind which actual oppression lies
  • 14 Distractions
  • 14, 17 Pornographic literature
  • 16 The destruction of Christianity, Islam and other religions and cultures, followed by a transitional stage of atheism, followed finally by the hegemony of Judaism
  • 20 Brainwashing
  • 21 Economic depressions
  • 22 Undermining financial systems by foreign loans, creating national bankruptcy, destroying money markets and replacing them with government credit institutions
  • 23 Justification of previous acts of evil and expectation of a great new society
  • 24 Reduction of the manufacture of articles of luxury, destruction of large manufacturers, prohibition of alcohol and hashish, unleashing forces of violence under the mask of principles of freedom, only to have the 'King of the Jews' demolish those very forces to make him appear a saviour
  • 25 Training of the king, direct heirs, irreproachability of exterior morality of the King of the Jews.

Now this is coming from before the 1900's when nearly nothing on the list had been done, no world wars etc. and today nearly every single item on the list runs true as having been done.
Now before you make the claim its a forgery,realise it was written before any of the events had taken place, and also realise that it was Literally the only claim they could make, it was a forgery or it was fake, its not like they could admit it and apologise.

The speech by Benjamin H. Freedman(who was a jew) has countless evidence of jewish manipulation and instigation throughout it. The speech can be found on the internet.

and lastly an example is the USS liberty incident in which Israel attacked a US ship in the hopes of sinking it and blaming the arabs in order to bring america into the war.
The excuse israel used was that it thought it was an Egyption boat.

Some American government officials and others did not believe the attack was an innocent mistake. They noted that various aircraft, apparently Israeli, flew over Liberty at regular intervals—some at low altitudes—before the attack; and that Liberty was about twice as large as El Quseir, designated with Latin rather than Arabic letters, displaying the US flag, and differently configured. Additionally, American State Department messages indicated that Israeli government inquiry about U.S. ships in the area was made only after the attack ended.[9] Proponents include the surviving Liberty crewmen, [10] and some former U.S. government officials, including then-CIA director Richard Helms and then-Secretary of State Dean Rusk as well as Admiral Thomas Hinman Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Johnson administration did not publicly dispute Israel's claim that the attack had been nothing more than a disastrous mistake, but internal White House documents obtained from the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library show that the Israelis' explanation of how the mistake had occurred was not believed.[11]

Many intelligence and military officials dispute Israel's explanation[49]

Dean Rusk, US Secretary of State at the time of the incident, wrote:
“ I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. Their sustained attack to disable and sink Liberty precluded an assault by accident or some trigger-happy local commander. Through diplomatic channels we refused to accept their explanations. I didn't believe them then, and I don't believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous.[50] ”

Retired naval Lieutenant Commander James Ennes, a junior officer (and off-going Officer of the Deck) on USS Liberty (AGTR-5)'s bridge at the time of the attack, has authored a book titled Assault on the Liberty (Random House, 1980; Ballantine Books 1986; Reintree Press 2004) about the incident during the Six Day War in June, 1967 claiming it was deliberate. Ennes and Joe Meadors, another survivor of the attack, run a website[51] about the incident. Meadors states that the classification of the attack as deliberate is the official policy of the association, to which all known survivors belong. Other survivors run several additional websites.
In 2002 Captain Ward Boston, JAGC, U.S. Navy, senior counsel for the Court of Inquiry, claimed that the Court of Inquiry's findings were intended to cover up what was a deliberate attack by Israel on a ship it knew to be American. In 2004, in response to the publication of Jay Cristol’s book The Liberty Incident which Boston claimed was an "insidious attempt to whitewash the facts" he prepared and signed an affidavit[52] in which he claimed that Admiral Kidd had told him that the government ordered Kidd to falsely report that the attack was a mistake, and that he and Kidd both believed the attack was deliberate. On the issue Boston wrote, in part:

posted on Sep, 16 2009 @ 12:18 AM
“ The evidence was clear. Both Admiral Kidd and I believed with certainty that this attack, which killed 34 American sailors and injured 172 others, was a deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew. Each evening, after hearing testimony all day, we often spoke our private thoughts concerning what we had seen and heard. I recall Admiral Kidd repeatedly referring to the Israeli forces responsible for the attack as 'murderous bastards.' It was our shared belief, based on the documentary evidence and testimony we received first hand, that the Israeli attack was planned and deliberate, and could not possibly have been an accident."

I can't believe you are quoting from the Tsarist Elders of Zion propaganda.

Jews don't control squat as a whole. Sure there are some Jewish Individuals or Individuals of Jewish ancestry in the Infotainment industry, but that has nothing to do with Jews as an entire People.

There are over 1 million Haredi (Ultra Orthodox) Jews that are comprised of groups like the Hasidic Jews and the Chabad Lubavitch movement that have very little money, influence and many oppose Zionism.

Yet people want to lump all Jews together. That is prejudiced crap that ignores facts.

People need to inform themselves

"In wake of Gaza probe, how can Israel go to war again?"

That's like saying:

"In light of what a depleted uranium round can do to a human body, how can America go to war again?"


"In light of the fact that a bunker busting bomb turns people into smears of red, how can we ever launch another?"


"In the wake of an ever increasing population that shares limited resources, how can we ever bear children again?"

You have got to be kidding!

Ok we have just linked to this new story at Eye On War

Here is some of the articles content:

'Jews around the world have rallied behind Israel and condemned the United Nations report accusing Israel of war crimes in the Operation Cast Lead counterterrorist campaign in Gaza that took place from December 27, 2008 until the middle of January 2009.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon (Yisrael Beiteinu) said Wednesday morning that Israel will work with the United States, which, along with other Western countries, has a vested interest in not allowing the U.N. to impose international law on democracies. He pointed out that dictatorships and known violators of human rights such as Malaysia, Syria, Pakistan and Somalia are members of the U.N. Human Rights Commission, headed by South African Judge Richard Goldstone. Ayalon is currently in Washington and is scheduled to meet Wednesday with Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.'
