we really need new language. new words. how the f(&^ can one make it clear the extent to which israeli terrorists get away not just with murder, but with massacres, with genocide. i am not only speaking about now about gaza, but SIXTY ONE YEARS OF GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER. how is it possible that the world is silent and watches. and i wonder now as israeli terrorists bomb the united nations headquarters in gaza, why aren’t united nations workers across the planet striking? they also targeted journalists again today, injuring two from abu dhabi television:
The UN refugee agency says its Gaza headquarters has been struck by Israeli artillery fire and the building is now ablaze.
Spokesman Chris Gunness says the building was hit by what was believed to be three white phosphorous shells. The weapons burn at extremely high temperatures and can set things on fire.
However, witnesses said a nearby building was struck, and the UN building remained intact. It was hard to verify the accounts because the entire area was covered in black smoke.
Gunness says the building had been used as a shelter for hundreds of people fleeing Israel’s 20-day offensive in Gaza. It’s not clear how many people were there at the time. He says three people were injured.
The Israeli army had no immediate comment on the incident.
Meanwhile, an explosion blasted a tower block in the city of Gaza today that houses the offices of Reuters and several other media organisations, injuring a journalist for the Abu Dhabi television channel.
Reuters journalists working at the time said it appeared the southern side of the 13th floor of the Al-Shurouq Tower in the city centre had been struck by an Israeli missile or shell. Reuters evacuated the bureau.
Colleagues said at least one journalist working for Abu Dhabi television on the 14th floor was injured.
The 13th floor houses a local television production company. The Reuters bureau is on the 12th floor. Live television footage showed smoke coming from the roof of the building, which towers over the generally low-rise city centre.
An Israeli army spokesman said he was checking the report.
of course, chief israeli terrorist and propagandist mark regev is busy telling al jazeera that this attack was done by palestinians. interesting. palestinians now have white phosphorous bombs and f-16s? and just now israeli terrorists bombed a hospital in tel al hawa, with 500 people inside. here is the email i received and al jazeera has confirmed it, but there is no link yet:
Al-Aqsa hospital, Gaza City located in the Tel al Huwa neighbourhood of Gaza has been under attack by the Israeli army since 1:30 AM.
According to international volunteers, it has been hit by shells four times.
The hospital has received over 150 calls for help from people including many children in the surrounding area who have been wounded
and are in desperate need of medical care. The Israeli army has surrounded the hospital and no one is able to get in or out.
No one is able to get to these children.
and because israeli terrorists are a people who love not only to murder and massacre, but also love to jail and imprison, there are now 500 palestinians in jails inside of their gaza prison:
At the site of the former settlement of Netzarim is one camp, with a second in the north’s Beit Hanoun, another in Bani Suheila in the south and a four near the Karni Crossing.
A report reveals that some Palestinian security prisoners were deported to the Israeli intelligence service to be investigated as part of the “wanted lists of the occupation authorities” for belonging to Hamas.
none of those imprisoned in the prison inside the prison are being allowed access to lawyers, of course. and palestinians inside 1948 who are protesting also go to jail:
In the afternoon on 1 January 2009, the Israeli police released the actors Hanan Helou and Saleh Bakri from detention. They had been arrested the night before at a demonstration in Haifa where placards were raised and candles lit in solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip being bombarded by Israeli air attacks. The demonstration took place on Ben Gurion Street, close to midnight, when others were crowded into cafes and restaurants welcoming the New Year.
During the peaceful demonstration, without any warning, a group of police officers approached the actress, Hanan Helou, and tore up the placard she was carrying and beat her causing injuries all over her body; they also beat everyone present and anyone who asked them to stop. In addition, the police severely beat the actor, Saleh Bakri, and arrested him and his friend. Following the arrest, the police refused to provide medical assistance to the detainees, despite the injuries and nausea suffered by the actress Helou.
20 days of genocide. 1,066 martyrs so far. and it continues to get worse. and i cannot find the words to describe the level of worseness it is. the level of evil. they are beyond evil. i struggle to fall into the abyss of george bush’s banal language–i’m thinking “evil-doers” here–but there really are no words to describe this. they are worse than the nazis. they are worse because they know and they spend 61 years consistently murdering a people. and the world’s guilty conscience lets them get away with it. when will the f&^%$#) world feel its guilt about the complicity they have in slaughtering palestinians? how many must die before they come clean?
there is one person today who deserves big kudos for standing up, for having cajones:
“I call for moving the Arab League from Cairo to Caracas,” MP Waleed al-Tabtabai said during a special debate in parliament over the Israeli offensive.
Tabtabai said that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez “has proved that he was more Arab than some Arabs,” after he expelled the Israeli ambassador in protest against the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.
