Palestine: Oppression Will not Work

Christiane Amanpour is Just Pathetic

by Scott Creighton

When someone says it takes a lot of effort to spin Israel as the perpetual victim in whatever atrocity  they commit, they could easily be talking about this recent pathetic display by sycophantic CNN policy pitch-person Christiane Amanpour.

This over-paid hack hag starts the hit-piece interview with Khaled Mashal with a voice over claiming he represents a pariah (Hamas) “considered by Israel and the U.S. and much of the West to be a terrorist organization”

Operation Pillar of Genocide: The Ceasefire Is a Ploy by Israelis and Hillary: They Have No Intention of Seeing it Hold Up

by Scott Creighton

Due to the growing negative public opinion of Israel’s attack on Gaza, the Israelis were forced into a defensive tact as they finally agreed to a cease fire yesterday which had been brokered by the Egyptians and then Hillary took credit for it. It is my opinion that they knew they were over a barrel on this one and they had no intention of allowing the ceasefire agreement to stand so they signed off on the agreement which will keep Israel from killing more of their children and bombing the structures of their government while opening the Gaza border crossings if the deal holds for 24 hours.

Israel and Hillary have no intention of allowing that to happen. In the end, they will stage or create more Hamas attacks and they can then sit back, attack Gaza, bring in the ground troops all the while claiming they were the peace-seeking party in the new round of violence.

How much is this child’s heartbreak worth to the IDF? Is it a resounding victory? “Mission Accomplished”?

I would love to say the cease started yesterday will hold up with both sides recognizing the need to bring this deplorable action to a halt, but unfortunately, I fear, it’s just another ploy to demonize Hamas and the people trapped in Gaza.

World opinion of Israel has been plummeting. No matter how hard they worked or how fanatically they defended the indefensible actions of the IDF, the propagandists, apologists, and influence peddlers of Hasbara couldn’t stem the tide of negative public reaction to their latest unprovoked attack on the inhabitants of the largest open air prison in the world.

Operation Pillar of Genocide: Erdogan on Gaza: This is not self defence, this is ethnic cleansing

from Middle East online

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” in Gaza, as six Palestinians were killed in a new wave of Israeli strikes on Gaza, medics said, raising the Palestinian toll from six days of bombardment to 116.

The new raids ended a night of relative quiet in which no-one was killed for the first time since Israel launched its relentless aerial assault on rocket-firing militants in the enclave on November 14, Palestinian medics said.

Erdogan said Israel’s air raids could not be considered self defence.

“Israel is committing ethnic cleansing by ignoring peace in this region and violating international law,” Erdogan said. “It is occupying the Palestinian territory step by step.”

Operation Pillar of Genocide: Egyptian-brokered Cease fire Delayed Till Hillary Can Take Credit for it

by RT

Hamas officials have announced that a ceasefire agreement has been held up because Israel has not yet responded to proposals for the Egyptian-brokered truce.

Israel’s negotiation team has reportedly rejected a draft ceasefire and delayed a press conference to announce the truce indefinitely, the Times of Israel reports, citing local media.

Earlier Arabic news sources cited Hamas official Ayman Taha as saying an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire was set to be declared in Gaza at 19:00 GMT, and would go into effect at 22:00 GMT. Israel said that a ceasefire deal has yet to be finalized.

US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has landed in Tel Aviv and is expected to meet with Netanyahu shortly.

Operation Pillar of Genocide: Sending in Killary is Like Sending Native Americans Some More Blankets

by Scott Creighton

So far Israel is responsible for 225 Malalas (only difference is, the Palestinian kids were actually wounded).

Chew on that Hasbara.

The situation in Gaza has gotten much worse over the last 24 hours. 100 more rockets from Israel have pounded into various targets in Gaza, mostly residential areas, because as the Israeli’s say, the “militants” are hiding there.

The “militants” are actually Palestinian police or Hamas employees and they “hide” in residential districts because that’s where the houses are and like most human beings, the houses are where one puts one’s family which are also being targeted by Israeli bombs when they go after the “militants”

“By Tuesday, civilians accounted for 54 of the 113 Palestinians killed since the operation began. Some 840 people have been wounded, including 225 children, Gaza health officials said.”

“”We want to tell the world which is supporting the state of Israel, what this state is doing,” said neighbor Rushdie Nasser. “They are supporting a state that kills children … We want to send a message to the U.N. and the West: Enough of supporting the Zionists, who are killing children.””  AP

Israel’s death toll remains at the same “3″ it started with and the politically correct spin on that discrepancy is their new Iron Dome system, which you paid for by the way, which is really good at going up in the air from time to time and exploding it’s own rockets to make it LOOK like it hit an incoming homemade Homas rocket. That’s the spin at least. The reality is that Hamas resides in the world’s largest open air prison and they don’t get a whole lot of U.S. made rockets delivered to them every week like Israel does. That’s the fact.

Israeli Warmonger Claims they Didn’t Kill Enough Palestinians During Operation Cast Lead

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: This from a writer who was invited to stand with AIPAC and J Street (yes, J Street stands with Israel on the issue of bombing and murdering Palestinian children). The writer, MJ Rosenberg, had this too say about the offer:

“In God’s name, why would anyone join a rally to support such abominations?”

The right to destabilize is singular: A farewell to Max Blumenthal and Hillary’s propagandists

by Scott Creighton

Max Blumenthal has said “enough is enough” and taken his little pen and walked away from his staff position at Al Akhbar English over what he claims is their editorial tolerance of “Assad apologists”. According to Max in an article on his website explaining his decision to leave in a huff (The right to resist is universal: A farewell to Al Akhbar and Assad’s apologists)  “the apologia for Assad and his crimes has reached unbearable levels.”

I once had a great deal of respect for Max Blumenthal. His work on the Palestinian issue has been courageous to say the least. But now I have to say farewell to Max and remove his link from my blogroll. His disingenuous and downright dishonest efforts to prop-up the progressive Assad demonetization train turns my stomach and I will never be able to post a single thing he writes without having to question the man’s integrity.

Yeah, it’s that bad. Max Blumenthal is an outright liar. No one, and I mean NO ONE with his resources and experience in the Middle East could miss the boat so badly on this topic without doing so deliberately unless he was a total and complete idiot. And Max is not an idiot. He is however, the son of Sidney Blumenthal who was a long term adviser to Bill Clinton (during the destabilization of Yugoslavia as coincidence would have it) and then a campaign adviser to Hillary Clinton who expected to serve in her State Department before Rahm Emanuel put his foot down for some reason. Max’s daddy is also reportedly a close friend of Tony Blair. Just thought I would throw that in for good measure.

Yes, Max Blumenthal is a liar. And I will now show you how I came to that conclusion. As to the why, well… you be the judge.

Israel, NATO’s Little Helper: The Overlooked Player in the Syrian Destabilization Campaign

by Scott Creighton

All too often we find ourselves talking about the United States and Britain’s destabilization campaign in Syria and we forget to mention the other partner in crime working to break the country up into little pieces: NATO’s Little Helper, Israel.

Israel’s involvement in the terrorist centered destabilization campaign is extensive to say the least and their motives to assist in the NATO efforts are just as obvious.

Israel has more than a few prime motivations to see that the current regime in Syria is overthrown and replaced by a puppet regime friendly to the west and Israel in particular. The first and foremost, is the survival of Israel itself and this has nothing to do with some existential threat posed by Syria.

Israeli “Firefighters” Shoot Palestinian While IDF Soldiers Do Nothing

by Scott Creighton

An Israeli peace organization B’Tselem has released a video of a shooting that took place this past Saturday in the Palestinian village of Asira al-Qibliya.

According to witnesses, Israeli settlers had come from their neighboring Izhar settlement to throw rocks at village houses and Palestinians and to set fires. Two of the settlers were armed and one seemed to be carrying a strange bottle of liquid which could have possibly been a Molotov cocktail. A spokesman for the settlement later called them “firefighters” there to “put out fires” so clearly fire was indeed an aspect of this incident though not included in the video below.

Settlement spokesman called these guys “firefighters” there to help Palestinians put out some fires…. hmmm

Freedom Flotilla II to Set Sail Today Amid a Flurry of Israeli Propaganda and Dire Warnings from Hillary Clinton

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: IDF Chief of Staff says “Hate Flotilla is an attempt to de-legitimize Israel”

UPDATE: Israeli officials claiming that flotilla activists like holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein are planning violence against the IDF.

UPDATE: Ray McGovern is on the U.S. aid ship

UPDATE: Passengers and Crew of US ship to Gaza “Audacity of Hope”

Israel and the United States have been pressuring Greece to find some reason to hold the second Freedom Flotilla in port, keeping it from leaving for Gaza, but to no avail.

The “Freedom Flotilla II — Stay Human” is reportedly planning to set sail for Gaza today in spite of a new wave of Israeli propaganda flooding the MSM about the nature of the mission and the type of people on board. One of the ships is the U.S. flagged “Audacity of Hope

Among others aboard the U.S. flagged ship will be a former Israeli combat pilot and commander, Yonatan Shapira and holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein.
