The Palestinian Holocaust

gazaHere we go again…. Another confrontation between Israel and Palestine. What else is new?

What’s new is that finally the world is fed up with the abuses of the government of Israel. Netanyahu has pushed the envelope quite too many times, and the world sees through his lies.

On April 23, 2014 Hamas, controlling the area of Gaza and Fatah, controlling the West Bank, agreed to unite their government and create the Palestinian Authority. Needless to say, the government of Israel did not like this union and openly expressed their disagreement. Ignoring the opposition of Israel, the new Palestinian government continued their negotiations and on May 28th a new government began to take form, announcing that in less than a month they will have a new cabinet. That is exactly what happened and on June 9th the new cabinet of the Palestinian Authority was created.

The new government of the Palestinian Authority begins taking bids for the exploration and exploitation of oil and natural gas within the Palestinian land (Gaza and West Bank), bids were to end on June 30, 2014.

On May 15th, two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead by IDF, but no one has heard about it, the media is not interested in showing Israel as anything but an innocent victim… These two teenagers were Nadeem Siam Nawara, 17, and Mohammad Mahmoud Odeh, 16 and perhaps their deaths were what prompted the kidnapping and murdering of the three Israeli kids, most likely done by a family member of the deceased Palestinian kids seeking revenge.

It was not Hamas, but this provided the government of Israel the excuse they were looking for and, if there had been none, they would have created it… damn it, they may have even been the ones that kidnapped and murdered those kids. You know how the saying goes: In love and war, all is accepted.

Due to the leaked video of the shooting of these two Palestinian teenagers, the US government questioned Moshe Ya’alon, Israel Defense Minister, about the deaths of Nadeem and Mohammad. Mr. Ya’alon claimed “Molotov cocktails and stones were thrown at border police officers who felt that their life was threatened, and acted accordingly.” Further, Mr. Ya’alon without seeing the video alleged that the images of the video were manipulated through editing… without seeing the video, he was already sure the images were manipulated, of course… IDF and the Israel Police Department are never at fault, just like our Defense and policemen, they are always fair, just and within the law, ha!

On June 12, 2014 three Israeli teenagers went missing: Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16 and Naftali Frenkel, 16. One of the kids abducted, called the Israeli police department on that same day and with a low and trembling voice, reported they had been kidnapped… the police answering the phone heard voices and what it was, unmistakably, gun shots and then silence. Today, all cellular phones are equipped with GPS so we can be almost sure that the police knew exactly where these boys were. According to Israeli police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, the Israeli police knew that Hamas didn't commit this horrible act but a lone cell; I can almost be sure that it was in retaliation for the deaths of Nadeem and Mohammad…

By June 15th, Hamas learns that Netanyahu is blaming them of kidnapping the three Israeli teenagers and denies their involvement in the kidnapping.
Coincidentally, on the day the Palestinian Authority is to end accepting bids, the bodies of the three teenage boys are found in a shallow grave in the West Bank, not Gaza, on June 30, 2014.

Besides a few ruffled feathers, Israel does nothing major against Palestine; the Palestinian Authority hasn’t announced who the winners of the oil and gas bids are; Israel and United States made bids and are hopeful to be the winners… The Palestinian Authority rejected their bid, and rumor has it – I can’t confirm it – that the bid was given to Russia.

Now, knowing full well that they will not get their hands, legally, on the Palestinian oil and gas Netanyahu attacks Gaza on July 8th, 2014 with all the might of a power country… attacking with everything Israel has except a nuclear bomb; perhaps if they can’t get the oil and gas legally, they can by force.

israel planeOn July 17th, the Malaysian flight MH 17 was shot down, and the US accuses Russia of indirectly being responsible of this sinister, after all, the weapons used by the Ukrainian rebels was provided to them by Russia… as if the US doesn’t do the same. Making this accusation is just a way to put Russia (Vladimir Putin) into defense mode and neglect Russia’s interest in the oil and gas of Palestine.

It has been 20 days of Israel slaughter on Gaza and counting. We keep hearing that one Israeli soldier died yesterday or that 3 soldiers died a week ago… or that one rocket was fired by Hamas to Israel, and as usual, either missing the target or getting intercepted by IDF. No one seems to know how many bombs and rockets have been thrown by Israel, I guess it is way too difficult to keep count. But we rarely hear what is happening inside Gaza; the media is silent.

I used to support Israel, but I can’t anymore. What is happening cannot be called a war, no matter how much the Israeli government insists it is. It can’t be a war because only one side holds all the weapons. Only one side has a military force to reckon with while the other is just a bunch of militants, a handful of renegades that after more than 50 years of occupations, usurpation and abuse are fed up and are fighting back. 
When a country with the advantage attacks civilians, when it attacks schools and shelters, that nation is not worth defending, that nation should not be considered a victim.

Hamas is no angel, but neither is Israel. The youth on both sides is growing up with their hearts and souls filled by the hatred towards one another. There has to be two independent countries, not as Israel foresees it – with the Israeli government controlling all access to water, food, medication, roads, transportation, etc. – but by Palestine becoming a true independent nation, without the interference of Israel.

I no longer stand by Israel… Doing so is supporting the ethnic cleansing being done by Zionist Jews, a genocide, a holocaust. I've lost many Jewish friends over this; they can't understand that I love the people of Israel but it is their government I despise.

وداعا والسلام
 الحرية لفلسطين!

 להתראות ושלום
 חופש לפלסטין!
