Joblessness Hangs at 45% in Blockaded Gaza

People in Australia protest Israel’s blockade of Gaza and its attack on a humanitarian aid flotilla in June 2010.

In findings that can hardly be expected to generate Palestinian goodwill for Israel, a five-year Israeli blockade on Gazan exports has contributed heavily to the joblessness of nearly half the population and a sharp decline in real wages, according to a U.N. report.

In 2009, the city of Gaza had a population of 450,000. Private businesses have lost the most jobs, researchers say, while the public sector run by Hamas—the leading party which resolutely refuses to recognize Israel—has actually added jobs. —ARK

BBC:

Gaza’s unemployment rate was among the world’s highest, at 45.2% in late 2010, the UN has found, as Israel’s blockade of the territory enters its fifth year.

Real wages meanwhile fell by more than a third, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said.

Its report says that private businesses have been hardest hit by the continuing ban on virtually all exports.

On, and on, and on…...

July 16, 2002 - Nine people were killed and 20 injured in a Palestinian attack on Dan bus No. 189 traveling from Bnei Brak to Emmanuel in Samaria. An explosive charge was detonated next to the bullet-resistant bus. The terrorists waited in ambush, reportedly wearing IDF uniforms, and opened fire on the bus. While four terror organizations claimed responsibility for the attack, it was apparently carried out by the same Hamas cell which carried out the attack in Emmanuel on Dec 12, 2001.
The victims: Galila Ades, 42, of Emmanuel; Yonatan Gamliel, 16, of Emmanuel; Keren Kashani, 29, of Emmanuel; Sarah Tiferet Shilon, 8 months, of Emmanuel; Gal Shilon (her father), 32, of Emmanuel; Zilpa Kashi (her grandmother), 65, of Givatayim; Ilana Siton, 35, of Emmanuel. The premature infant delivered after its mother, Yehudit Weinberg, was seriously injured, died of his injuries overnight.
Yocheved Ben-Hanan, 21, of Emmanuel, who was critically wounded, died on July 18.

Hey GRYMie...Did you serve in the Israeli army/IDF? Will you condemn Israel’s killing of innocent Palestinian children/civilians/women…etc…?


In December 2008 / January 2009…Israel’s IDF massacred about 1400 Palestinians…mostly unarmed civilians & many of them were women & helpless children. They even gunned down unarmed civilians who were holding white flags.


For 22 days Israel’s massive American made weapons were unleashed on the helpless Gaza people…Israel’s IDF killers droped 500+ pound bombs on neighborhoods, schools, hospitals, UN facilities & attacked ambulances & food storage warehouses.

Israel’s sophisticated American made fighter jets, missiles, drones, tanks, and that was not enough…they dropped white phosphorus chemicals on civilians and denied using them…then they admitted that they did use them white phosphorus.

GRYMie…Your Apartheird/Nazi Israel is a criminal terrorist state. They massacre Palestinians, Lebanese, Arabs, Moslems, Christians, Americans, Jews & then they resort to playing the victims…and to Nazi Israel/Zionism…Palestinian/Arab/Christian/Moslem children…are NOT as worthy as Jewish children!!!

THE PICTURES TELL IT ALL…ITS A TRAIL OF DEATH FOR PALESTINIAN CHILDREN AT THE BLOODY HANDS OF ISRAEL’S IDF CHILDREN KILLERS !!!

Mr. Nasrallah,

How long will this go on?  This odd obsession you have for looking on and preaching for one side of this conflict?  How would it be of harm if you were to display, in equal measure, other sides of this conflict?

Or should I be telling you to look on your beloved Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman and what he’s done to these young children?

UPDATED w/VIDEO: Photos of Itamar Jewish Kids Massacred by Palestinians:

**** UPDATED, 03/13/11: Scroll Down to Check out the Very Touching /Disturbing Video,  Below, of the Fogel Family & What Happened to Them ****

****UPDATE #2: Watch Moving, Short Video of the Fogel Family Funeral to see more of What Islamic Peace Looks Like ****

By Debbie Schlussel

By now, you’ve probably heard about the latest, sickening Palestinian terrorist attack on children in Itamar, Israel in the so-called West Bank.  The kids of the Fogel Family–including a three-month-old baby–and their parents were brutally murdered–STABBED to death, but you’ll barely hear a word in the mainstream media because these kids wear yarmulkes, not hijabs and kefiyehs.  They were attacked as they were resting on the Jewish Sabbath because that’s how these Muslims work. It’s important to note that these attacks were perpetrated by Fatah, NOT HAMAS.

Murdered while they slept were they were sleeping: Rabbi Udi Fogel (36), his wife Ruth (34), 11-year-old Yoav, four-year-old Elad and three-month-old Hadas. Their young daughter, Tamar, returned home to find their bodies.

Normally, I would not post these out of respect for the dead, especially dead children.  But the family released photos of their murdered children and grandchildren and asked that they be posted and publicized.

Israel: Licensed To Kill

WARNING


This page contains raw video footage (BBC) of the murder of Mohammed Al-Dura’s, 12-year-old son

Mohammed Al-Dura, a 12-year-old Palestinian, was killed by Israeli soldiers while he and his father begged for their lives. The father was seriously injured with five bullet wounds but managed to survive. A taxi driver had tried to save them but was also killed by Israeli soldiers. This is the kind of aggression and inhuman brutality on the part of Israeli soldiers that prompted the Second, or Al-Aqsa, intifadah.

Robert Nasrallah,

Yes, a list of real human atrocities with names attached. The vast majority having nothing to do with your abstract Cause. You whine on the list’s longevity.*

Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.” - Yasser Arafat

Tell me, do you dismiss and belittle every one of these particular victims I’ve listed with the notion that they somehow “deserve” what they got?

-

Does Israel have a right to exist or not?  According to you, Hassan Nasrallah, there is no legal and legitimate state called Israel. Perhaps, in light of your teachings, you’ll understand mutual Israeli/Arab distrust.


*I have many, MANY, more when you care enough to see.

Another Bomb In Jerusalem: 91 DEAD


“July 22, 1946: The King David Hotel in Jerusalem was bombed. Killing 91 people

Menachem Begin sic who planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin (See picture at top of this page, flanked by pictures of the bombed King David Hotel). Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish “terrorist” gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical “Stern Gang,” which committed many vicious atrocities.

    Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that “it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets.” The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin.

    April 9, 1948: A combined force of Irgun and Stern Gangs committed a brutal massacre of 260 Arab residents of the village of Deir Yassin. Most of whom were women and children. The Israeli hordes even attacked the dead to satisfy their bestial tendencies. In April, 1954, during Holy Week, and on the eve of Easter, The Christian cemeteries in Haifa were invaded, crosses broken down and trampled under the feet of these miscreants, and the tombs desecrated. The Israeli military conquest, therefore was made against a defenseless people, who had been softened up by such earlier massacres as Deir Yasin {250 Arabs; men, women and children were massacred there}.

      May 1948: The U.S. appointed Count Folke Bernadotte of Sweden to mediate between the Arabs and the Israelis. In his first progress report (of Sept. 16, 1948) he recommended that the U.N. should affirm “the right of the Arab refugees to return to their homes in Jewish controlled territory at the earliest possible date.” The Israelis responded in their own quiet way. The following day Bernadotte was murdered in Jerusalem.

        February 1949: Israel launched an offensive across the Armistice lines with Egypt which brought its forces to the Gulf of Aqaba, occupying the Palestinian police post of Umm Rashrash which they afterwards named Eilat.

    1950: Israelis seized the Al-Uja de-militarized zone on the Egyptian side and Baqqara on the Syrian side, expelling their Arab inhabitants and razed their homes to the ground by bulldozers.

    1950-1955: Israeli forces unleashed more than 40 acts of armed aggressions against Arab states, almost all causing a heavy loss of life. This included attacks and massacres in Qibya, Huleh 1953, Nahalin, Kfar Qassem in 1954, Gaza and a Syrian outpost on Lake Tiberias in 1955.

    October 14-15, 1953—Under the command of Ariel Sharon, Israeli squads attacked the unarmed Arab village of Qibya in the demilitarized one. Where they blew up 42 houses and killed more than sixty residents who were trapped inside. The details were so gruesome that the U.S. joined in a U.N. condemnation of the Israeli action, and for the first and only time, suspended aid to Israel in reprisal.”

GRYM is clearly lost control of his mind.

He chooses to use 30 comments, effectively blocking others voices, I have flagged him to the moderator.

His 30 comments describe much death and destruction.  He doesnt seem to understand that the amount of death and destruction caused by his almighty Israeli State is 10 times as numerous over the same time period.

GRYM is a sick zionist troll…for sure. He was caught plagiarizing, lying & fabricating his so called “massive research” on another TD thread, just a few days ago.

Notice that he would like for TD readers to think that his posts are solely his own words from his massive knowledge & research...GRYM’s mania & bi-polar episode(s) is/are flaring up…right here on TD.

His pale attempts to use the “anti-semitic” card/trick, side-tracking, divert, change the topic, attack the poster(s), ignore the information/facts, blame the Arabs/Arab states…etc… have failed. He is NOT coping with the current situation well….More & more Americans are getting their eyes opened to the lies, deceptions & tricks that have been used for decades on the AIPAC controlled news media in the US.

GRYMIie…IS A DECEPTIVE ZIONIST TROLL & A SICK LIAR… He panics & starts to froth at the mouth when one asks him for links/sources to his zionist posts…!!!

In GRYM’s zionist infected skull…Israel has no borders, Palestinians are not human & their country/place should be Jordan. A classic zionist’s perspective/ediology!

You mentioned American involvement, reminded me of what Peres told Sharon back in 2001.

“At this point, a furious Sharon reportedly turned toward Peres, saying “every time we do something you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. 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.”

I happen to agree with that statement by Sharon.  How much longer will America put up with this?

Most of the control is by the Israeli agents in America and by their cadre of Trolls for example the admitted Troll GRYM, who is currently flooding the pages of this thread with all the names of Israelis killed in this conflict.  This could take some time and a lot of pages.

My wonder is how many forests would it take to make the paper to list all the Palestinian victims of Israeli atrocities both after and before the creation of Israel by the UN.

Incidentally GYRM notes those killings of Israelis as the work of “Terrorists”.

The Palestinians most likely consider the Israelis as the “Terrorists”.

Past Zionist-Jewish Terrorism -

Some Historical Facts

From A Concerned American

3-23-2


Following are just a few of the many massacres committed by Jewish-Zionist terrorists, notably by the Zionist Hagana, Irgun and Stern Gang groups.


Don’t expect any Hollywood films highlighting any of these massacres:


1. King David Hotel, July 22, 1946.
2. Sharafat, Feb. 7, 1951.
3. Deir Yassin, April 10, 1948.
4. Falameh, April 2, 1951.
5. Naseruddine, April 14, 1948.
6. Quibya, Oct. 14, 1953.
7. Carmel, April 20, 1948.
8. Nahalin, March, 28, 1954.
9. Al-Qabu, May 1, 1948.
10. Gaza, Feb. 28, 1955.
11. Beit Kiras, May 3, 1948.
12. Khan Yunis, May 31, 1955.
13. Beitkhoury, May 5, 1948.
14. Khan Yunis Again, Aug. 31, 1955
15. Az-Zaytoun, May 6, 1948.
16. Tiberia, Dec. 11, 1955.
17. Wadi Araba, May 13, 1950.
18. As-Sabha, Nov. 2, 1955.
19. Gaza Again, April 5, 1956.
20. Houssan, Sept. 25, 1956.
21. Rafa, Aug. 16, 1956.
22. Qalqilyah, Oct. 10, 1956.
23. Ar-Rahwa, Sept. 12, 1956.
24. Kahr Kassem, Oct. 29, 1956.
25. Gharandal, Sept. 13, 1956.
26. Gaza Strip, Nov. 1956.
26. Gaza Strip, Nov. 1956.

July 22, 1946: The King David Hotel in Jerusalem was bombed, killing 91 people.


Menachem Begin, who was later awarded the Nobel Prize for peace, is the same man who planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish terrorist gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical “Stern Gang,” which committed many vicious atrocities.

Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that “it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets.” The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin.

April 9, 1948: A combined force of Irgun and Stern Gangs committed a brutal massacre of 260 Arab residents of the village of Deir Yassin. Most of whom were women and children. The Israeli hordes even attacked the dead to satisfy their bestial tendencies. In April, 1954, during Holy Week, and on the eve of Easter, The Christian cemeteries in Haifa were invaded, crosses broken down and trampled under the feet of these miscreants, and the tombs desecrated. The Israeli military conquest, therefore was made against a defenseless people, who had been softened up by such earlier massacres at Deir Yasin (where 250 Arabs; men, women and children were massacred).”

And just think

None of this had to happen if the Zionist dream of founding a Jewish state in Palestine had been left up to the inhabitants of Palestine.

At one time a hundred years or so ago there was options of establishing that Jewish State somewhere else, not in Palestine.

Isn’t it interesting how Terrorists are defined?

And who gets to define them?

How many forests would have to be cut down to enumerate the killing and dispossession of the Palestinians?

And what was it the Palestinians did to start this?

You will find at the link you gave, in Ben Gurion’s own words, that the dispossession of the Palestinian population was planned many years before Israel ever became a Nation.

And you will also find at that site, in Ben Gurion’s own words, that the establishment of the initial borders of Israel was only a beginning, that after they became a Nation and developed a strong enough Army the plan was to expand their borders by conquest into Lebanon, Syria, Iraq,Egypt, and Arabia.  The Final Plan to re-establish the Zionist dream of Eretz Israel.

One can read on your provided link for a couple of weeks if you trace through it.  And the link is a history of the whole thing - presented without spin but simple as a recording of what happened.

Robert Nasrallah,

As I have written many times now, your highlighting of the worst behaviors is nearly useless to understanding this conflict.

-We can do this (these comparisons) for months, even years.
-Atrocious behaviors happen on all sides.
-You only concern yourself with the behaviors of the pigs, the monkeys, the dogs, the Juden.
-Nature gave you two eyes.  Not one.  What would be the harm in using them both?

Moshe Dayan- Quotes

Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist, not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushu’a in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.

 

“Never mind that [when asked that Syrians initiated the war from the Golan Heights]. After all, I know how at least 80 percent of the clashes there started. In my opinion, more than 80 percent, but let’s talk about 80 percent. It went this way: We would send a tractor to plough someplace where it wasn’t possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot. If they didn’t shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance farther, until in the end Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that’s how it was. I did that, and Laskov and Chara [Zvi Tsur, Rabin’s predecessor as chief of staff] did that, Yitzhak did that, but it seems to me that the person who most enjoyed these games was Dado [David Elzar, OC Northern Command, 1964-69].” (Iron Wall, p. 236-237)


Our American friends offer us money, arms, and advice. We take the money, we take the arms, and we decline the advice.” (Iron Wall, p. 316)


“There is no more Palestine. Finished . . .” (Iron Wall, p. 316)


“a new State of Israel with broad frontiers, strong and solid, with the authority of the Israel Government extending from the Jordan [river] to the Suez Canal.” (Iron Wall, p. 316)

“If the Jewish state becomes a fact, and this is realized by the Arab peoples, they will drive the Jews who live in their midst into the sea… Even if we are beaten now in Palestine, we will never submit.

What would it hurt if you were to share the other side of the story? If even just once in a great while?

Why not put as much effort into displaying for everyone the numerous civilian buses that have been bombed inside Israel?  Or some of the weddings that have been bombed or sprayed with bullets? The numerous bustling pizza shops, the hospital emergency room, the elementary school, several trains, market places, shopping Malls, bus stations, numerous cars bombs in the center of Jerusalem, the discos and bars, numerous residential neighborhoods, numerous border crossing points, coffee shops, train stations, pedestrian malls, hotels, temples, on - and on - and on.  Some truly equally horrific stories to tell that never crosses your attention.

All of the above speaks nothing of the 3 American diplomatic personnel killed in Gaza or the devastating psychological trauma of 12,000 rocket attacks.

Would it injure you or your cause to put both sides on display?  Or is this the first time you’ve become aware?

Don’t Look Away

The Siege of Gaza Must End

By KATHY KELLY

“In late June 2011, I’m going to be a passenger on “The Audacity of Hope,” the USA boat in this summer’s international flotilla to break the illegal and deadly Israeli siege of Gaza. Organizers, supporters and passengers aim to nonviolently end the brutal collective punishment imposed on Gazan residents since 2006 when the Israeli government began a stringent air, naval and land blockade of the Gaza Strip explicitly to punish Gaza’s residents for choosing the Hamas government in a democratic election. Both the Hamas and the Israeli governments have indiscriminately killed civilians in repeated attacks, but the vast preponderance of these outrages over the length of the conflict have been inflicted by Israeli soldiers and settlers on unarmed Palestinians. I was witness to one such attack when last in Gaza two years ago, under heavy Israeli bombardment in a civilian neighborhood in Rafah.

In January 2009, I lived with a family in Rafah during the final days of the “Operation Cast Lead” bombing. We were a few streets down from an area where there was heavy bombing. Employing its ever-replenished stockpile of U.S. weapons, the Israeli government sought to destroy tunnels beneath the Egyptian border through which food, medicine, badly-needed building supplies, and possibly a few weapons as well were evading the internationally condemned blockade and entering Gaza.

Throughout that terrible assault, Israel pounded civilians in Gaza, turning villages, homes, refugee camps, schools, mosques and infrastructure into rubble. According to Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem, the attack killed 1,385 Palestinians, nearly a quarter of them minors, with an uncountable number more to succumb, in the months and years following, to malnutrition, disease, and suicidal despair, the consequences of forced impoverishment under a still continuing siege that salts Gaza’s dreadful wounds by preventing it from even starting to rebuild.

All I could feel at the time was that the people in the Gaza Strip were horribly trapped, almost paralyzed.

The day of the cease-fire, when the sounds of bombing stopped, my young friends insisted that we must move quickly to visit the Al Shifaa hospital in Gaza City. Doctors there were shaken and stunned, after days of trying to save lives in a hopelessly overcrowded emergency room, with blood pooling at their feet. Dr. Nafez Abu Shabham, head of Al Shifaa’s burn unit, put his head in his hands and spoke incredulously to us. “For 22 days, the world watched,” he lamented, “and no country tried to stop the killing.”

He may well be putting his head in his hands again, today as too many of us have stopped even watching. “Human rights groups in Gaza are urgently requesting international aid groups and donor groups to intervene and deliver urgent medical aid to Palestinian hospitals in Gaza,” according to a June 14 Al Jazeera report. “Palestinian officials say that Gaza’s medicinal stock is nearly empty and is in crisis. This affects first aid care, in addition to all other levels of medical procedures.”

OK I did say that if you have a sincere wish to end the Genocide I would continue the conversations with you.

I will keep my word but only as long as I perceive that you sincerely want to stop the Genocide.

So lets start with your first statement;

1. Stop making Jews into monsters.
Answer:
Jews are not monsters .  The Nation Israel is the monster along with those who would excuse the Nation Israel for their monstrous behavior - people like you GRYM.

The only commenter that I can remember on this thread intimating that Jews were monsters - is you GRYM, it was your inference that calling the Nation Israel a monster is the same as calling Jews Monsters.

If you want to go any further with this discourse you have to stop mis-stating the words of other commenters to suit your agenda.  You have to answer this comment and admit that you have done it but you will stop it.

If you do that we can continue.

-

I don’t?  From where do you pull these odd incarnations? You have a wild and vivid, overly active, imagination.

From the first conversation we held here you acted as if I was your enemy.  Think about that when you write of making peace and offering respect.

-

You want peace between Arabs and Israel?

1. Stop making Jews into monsters.
2. De-fund the military arms of Hamas and Fatah.
3. Convince neighboring Arab nations to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Stop the incessant and hypocritical practice of doing business with Israel on the quiet while always condemning Israel in public.
4. Hold Israel fully accountable for her actions.
5. Hold Hamas and the PLO fully accountable for their actions.
6. Work diligently to foster economic growth in Gaza and West Bank (bolster Israel’s sense of security so Israel may again open its borders to the tens of thousands of Palestinians who elected to work inside Israel proper).
7. Hold neighboring Arab nations fully accountable for their actions.
8. Figure out why the extremely wealthy Arab nations in the region refuse to lift Palestinians out of their horrific poverty in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, West Bank and Gaza and change it.
9. Speak out forcefully against anti-Semitic writings and speech.
10. Listen, authentically, to all sides of the conflict while recognizing that this is not an issue of Israel and Palestinians.  This is an centuries old Arab/Jewish conflict.

Lastly, Jordan today sits in the very seat of Palestine. Palestinians make up roughly 70% of the Jordanian population and are ruled by a daily oppressive Hashemite minority.  Let us, at the very least. see this conflict in full context.

I hope there are few like you and that there are many who are willing to end this Geonicide.  It is evident that you believe that the Genocide is AOK because it is your kind that are doing it.  You don’t look on the Palestinians as human. 

That is the line of demarcation between you and me.  I believe in humane treatment for all human beings.  You do not.  I am looking for people who want to end the Genocide.  Those are the people who I want to have discourse with.

Grym,
Answer me one question,  why do you change peoples words from Israel to
Jews? You do understand that just because Jews run Israel, and Israel does
terrible things to Palestinians, that not all Jews necessarily are terrible by
default.  I hope you can find a way to make this distinction,  otherwise we
will be forced to understand that you have some internal block to reason,
perhaps a doctrine?

Can you simply confirm that Israel is a state that doesn’t necessarily
represent ALL Jews?

JUST A FOLLOW UP FROM THE OTHER TD THREAD…GRYMie TROLL !!!


Yep GRYMie…According to the data / information below, there are 27 official Palestinian refugee camps in the WEST BANK & GAZA. This puts them right under Israel’s brutal occupation. Are they better off than the ones in the Arab countries? Are they equal to the “for Jews only settlements/camps” when it comes to roads, resources, freedom, jobs, medical care…etc…

THE TRUTH PENETRATES THROUGH ALL BARRIERS…


Just exposing your Israeli deceptions & fanatic zionist hasbara stench…grymie!!!

The West Bank has 19 official camps with 194,514 refugees.

Heart of Jenin

Map: Palestinian Refugee Camps

“Jenin refers both to a city in the West Bank and to the adjoining Jenin Refugee Camp. In Heart of Jenin, Khatib’s family lives in the camp, along with about 12,000 fellow Palestinian refugees.

The Jenin camp looks like an established city because it has been there since 1953. It is one of 58 Palestinian refugee camps in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria where an estimated 1.3 million Palestinians live.

The camps were created when Palestinians were expelled from their homes in 1948 during the creation of Israel, and again after Israel occupied additional land in 1967.”

GRYM,

“You see, Arab countries can do that to Arab people without the worry of your condemnation. Syria can shoot people in Shighr and Armala without the worry that you’ll ever know how many people have been killed.”

I think this statement is just a bit false.  I read about the condemnation of the syrians pretty much daily in the mainstream US press. The US govt roundly condems syria, making them “axis of evil” material, whatever that means.  and i dont necessarily disagree. 

But, the US govt for years has been calling Israel our “strongest allyin the region”, and all sides of the political spectrum wholeheartledly support Israel MILITARILY.  Supporting a nuclear state that has a recent history of ethnic cleansing, (see previous evidence unrefuted by you) militarily, as they occupy a neighboring country with a strict policy for destroying palestinian generational homesteads to replace them with Israeliy ouptost settlements against the wishes of the rest of the developed world sees crazy at the least, criminal in reality.

to try to change this conversation once more to talk about the neighboring arab countries is clearly slight of hand, and will not be accepted.  Arab states are arab states.  The State of Israel is its own entity.  The palestinians are a people spread throughout numerous states.  If you want to argue about who treats them the worst, go to another site.  If you want to talk about how to stop the injustice, consider Israel as a starting point, as they are our only real ally in that area.  We as Americans can affect change in Israel, by boycotting the very corperations that profit from the illegal actions.

Well I’ll be damned GRYM, something we finally agree on.

The surrounding Arab states didn’t help the Palestinian refugees when they were forced out of their homes in Palestine did they.

But you see to use that argument to excuse the brutal treatment that Israel continues to rain on the Palestinians is sicker than sick. 

Now all Trolls know this and therefore the prime directive of the Trolls is to divert the conversation of the crowd from the brutality of the Israelis to point the finger of shame at the Arabs for not ministering to the needs of the Palestinian refugees.

All Trolls are adept at transference of blame.

But there is hope for you GRYM as I have told you before, actually on other sites where I have encountered you and your kind in the past.

Now, armed with this new information, you can go on to learn how when Palestinians became too much trouble for both Egypt and Jordan each handled the situation by either killing or extradited the problem.

You see, Arab countries can do that to Arab people without the worry of your condemnation. Syria can shoot people in Shighr and Armala without the worry that you’ll ever know how many people have been killed.

Why can Syria do this? First, unlike with Israel, you don’t much care. Second, unlike Israel, Syria controls every aspect of the media inside Syria.

Few people seem to know there are Fifty-Eight camps administered by UNRWA. The largest portion of “Palestinian” Refugee camps, the single largest benefactor being the United States are, today, in Arab countries.

Jordan: Ten camps w/346,830 Registered refugees in camps.
Syria: Nine camps w/129,457 Registered refugees in camps.
Lebanon: Twelve camps w/226,767 Registered refugees in camps.

Another three million live outside these camps and not permitted citizenship from their respective host countries. Jordan, of course, is now 70% Palestinian, under rule of the Hashemite minority, right in the seat of historic Palestine.

We should ruminate a minute on that last part….. Palestinians, living in Palestine today, are not allowed their own country.

There is no “PA” or “PLO” problem in these countries today. Jordan and Egypt have each proven that when these congregations of people begin any type of revolt, a call to arms for a land and government of their own, those congregations are summarily killed and/or forced to “evacuate”. - Of course for Arab countries it truly is just that easy. Brutality is daily throughout. Very few Westerners will raise a collective dander.

The “Great Cause” has next to nothing to do with “Palestinians”. Or where they happen to be held captive.

From the Link provided by peace, I offer the following excerpt:

“What is less widely known is that the dispossession of the Palestinian population actually started in the months before the war began. And while, as we have stated, some Palestinian dispossession had begun under the Ottoman occupation, the bulk of the dispossession, which continues to the present, started in 1947. Preparations for this cleansing began immediately after WWII, intensified in late 1947 following the UN partition plan and launched into full onslaught months before May 1948, and well before Arab Armies were involved.

According to Benny Morris, an internationally known Israeli historian , the waves of refugees originated in these periods.  Morris, lists 369 Palestinian villages and towns (localities) ethnically cleansed during these periods, before any war.

According to Morris and other Israeli historians, the reasons Palestinians left these localities were:

1.Expulsion by Zionist ? Jewish forces - 122 localities

2.Military assault by Zionist ? Jewish forces - 270 localities

3.Fear of Zionist ? Jewish attack, or of being caught in the fighting, influence of the fall of neighboring town, and psychological warfare - 12 localities

4.Abandonment on Arab orders - 6 localities

5.Unknown - 34 localities

The disparity in numbers is due to researchers differing as to what constitutes a village or a locality.”

I believe this fairly debunks the blathering of some of the Israeli trolls on here.

Your history only goes back 60 years, how convenient.  I dont need to dig to far in comment history to find Roberts post that includes facts like:

“Here is a testimony of an Israeli soldier who participated in the massacre at al Duwayima Village, on October 29, 1948:

[They] killed between 80 to 100 Arabs, women and children. To kill the children they fractured their heads with sticks. There was not one house without corpses. The men and women of the villages were pushed into houses without food or water. Then the saboteurs came to dynamite the houses. One commander ordered a soldier to bring two women into a house he was about to blow up… Another soldier prided himself upon having raped an Arab woman before shooting her to death. Another Arab woman with her newborn baby was made to clean the place for a couple of days, and then they shot her and the baby. Educated and well-mannered commanders who were considered ‘good guys’...became base murderers, and this not in the storm of battle, but as a method of expulsion and extermination. The fewer the Arabs who remained, the better.”

No stolen lands involved here.  These lands were used

Israel, and second, never gave the west bank to the

  There never was a pal state.
Soon as they take out of their charter not to
elininate or destroy Israel, peace can begin.  Pal’s
rejected the UN giving them a state/territory in ‘48.
  Also the 4 arab countries to this day have refused
to make peace (except Egypt) with Israel.
  Israel voluntarily gave up Gaza. What did they get
in return.  Missles and rockets.

It’s incredible that you remember so well events which actually never took place.

One of many examples: While you enjoy believing the U.S. and others never saw the Hamas victory at the polls, the very real possibility was discussed and debated at length BEFORE the vote.

- Read New York Times coverage of this issue prior to the Palestinian vote.  According to the Times President Bush weighed the possibility of an Hamas victory and decided to continue his “steadfast support of the election”.  Apparently, according to the Times, Bush strongly believed an election was preferable to the alternatives at the time.

Next, anyone who has been involved, interested in riparian rights - water rights
should read about that region in Gaza/Israel.  You can find appropriate
information in the UNESCO Library on line.  I researched it for a law class
concerning the Aswan High Dam and riparian rights/contracts.  The Gaza/Israel
water control was also discussed in my subject report.  Fascinating.  From my
understanding the dispute is not concerning foodstuffs but is more fundamental. 
It is that Israel controls Gazas water rights.  Serious stuff if you don’t get enough
water for your people and the flow is being controlled upstream by Israel who
wants you to leave pronto.

Did you notice something missing in this story?

Did you notice a heavy pot of “spin”.

What was spun?  Take a couple of minutes to think about it.

Ready?

Lets take a trip back to 2006. 

Where was the Israeli soldier captured?  Could it have been 4 miles inside Gaza with a squad that was on a “Kill and destroy mission”?  You remember that?

A statement was made by the forked tongue Israeli spokesman “If they would only sit down and talk to us” - go back and find it in the article.

Remember how it was that Hamas happened to “oust” Fatah from Gaza?  Drift back to the Palestinian Elections in 2006 when the American Israeli supervised election was held.  Hamas won the Election, remember?  America and Israel never saw it coming, they were sure that Their lap dog Fatah would win - right?

What was among the first proclamations made by the newly elected Hamas Government?  That they wanted to sit down with the Israeli government and begin to find a mutual peace plan.

Do you remember Israel’s answer?  They immediately arrested the newly elected Hamas Government and put them in Israeli Prisons.  Are you beginning to remember?

But thats not all they did, the Israelis.  They closed off the borders of Gaza and the West Bank and wouldn’t let food, electricity, water, medicine, anything into Gaza for three months trying to starve the Palestinians into accepting Fatah as their Government.  I’ll bet you’re remembering by now.

Do you remember America’s response to the starvation ? Wasn’t it deafening silence?

And they sent Fatah into Gaza to kick out Hamas who was providing the people of Gaza enough sustenance to stay alive.  And Hamas fought and defeated Fatah much to the chagrin of Israel.

The capture of that Israeli Soldier broke the Cease-Fire agreement that had been in place for over a year and had not been broken by Hamas or Fatah.

If you have been getting your mind engaged you should be remembering these facts now.  And if you remember them what do you think of this article?

Is it a stab at the truth, or a spun up article to justify the statement ” If the Palestinians would just quit being terrorists .....”.  And surely you’ve heard those words spoken before.  Especially by the people murdering them, stealing their land, starving them, and trying to get them leave the land that the Zionist claim God gave the Israelites.

Don’t you remember?

Wait. Wait. Gazan EXPORTS!!!

To read truthdig, I thought the Gazans could barely eat. Now we hear they have an economy healthy enough to produce EXPORTS! Well maybe Katyusha rockets. But Gaza has exported hundreds of them directly into Israel in the last few years with little difficulty, so what’s the complaint? Do they show up on the balance of trade figures I wonder? Is “rocket making” a job? If so, I seriously doubt the 45% unemployment figure.

Besides, all these figures are from at least six months ago. The Egyptian border is now open, so there should be no further problems for the Gazan export market.

Hamas employment figures are up. What exactly does Hamas produce to make Gazans more prosperous? Do any of you truthdiggers see a pattern here? Government is doing all the hiring, yet the overall economy is in the toilet. Is it just possible that “government” is NOT the answer?

Finally, I know this will be one of those inconvenient truths difficult for truthdiggers to hear, but Gazan farmers have been complaining that Israel has been underselling them in Gazan marketplaces and have demanded that Israel stop bringing certain foodstuffs into Gaza. If the goal of Israel is to choke and starve Gaza, how can this be??
