Piled in one room in the Gaza war zone are rotting bodies--and shell casings marked "IMI," short for "Israel Military Industries."

Extremely difficult and sickening to read.. I can only repeat Gaza has been turned into an abattoir.
This all-out war -still being called "crisis" by some media - has now lasted longer and cost more lives and injured than Op Cast Lead but yet it is allowed to go on, even by a Nobel Peace Prize winner.., just unbelievable.

Thanks Sam for posting this article. I wonder how many twist 'n turns and "adjustements" we'll see and hear until this massacre will be ready to be pushed onto Hamas or any of the many fighting groups.

It can be anyone incl. the Martians ... or may be the Klingeons ... but definitely not the Israeli IDF!

Wonder if Obama/Kerry will call this massacre "barbaric" ... or will Obama just come up with his latest that "the United States has been clear that innocent civilians in Gaza caught in the crossfire have to weigh on our conscience, and we have to do more to protect them."

Maybe we should send Obama a letter of support in case his conscience pulls him down ... ?

Thank you, Sam, for this very important posting.

Can someone help me in understanding one of NotYetYahooo's latest statements? He announced that the bombing of Gaza would continue as "long as it is necessary"? Seeing that the bombing has taken out the purification of fresh drinking water and the sewage treatment plant.....in this desert.....what could that statement mean......until everyone is dead?

Is this paraphrasing the Old Testament injunction to "put everything that breathes to the edge of the sword?"

What does Benjamin mean by "as long as necessary"?

Here is the (Non) response I got from Senator Chris Murphy (Dem. Ct.) when I wrote voicing my concerns about Israel. It is typical of the bought and paid for Congressmen we now have running the country. Note his phone number on the bottom of the page. Feel free express your outrage with Israel in a phone call to Senator Murphy! And remind him who he works for!

Dear Marc,
Thank you for contacting me about Israel and Operation Protective Edge. I appreciate your correspondence and hope that you find this response helpful.
Like you, I am concerned by the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza. On July 8, 2014 -- amidst the collapse of peace talks, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers, and increasing rocket attacks from Hamas -- Israel launched Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. Since that time, violence has raged between Israel and Hamas, with more than 1,000 Palestinian civilians killed and 2,700 rockets shot at Israel's population.
I have consistently supported Israel's right to defend itself. No country can be expected to do nothing when its population is threatened, and I have supported the Iron Dome program as a purely defensive shield against missile attacks. Meanwhile, Hamas purposefully places its weapons and launching equipment in densely populated civilian areas, forcing Israel into an impossible position between avoiding Palestinian civilian casualties or eliminating the threat to its own civilians. Hamas does not give Gaza's citizens a choice in this matter, and, in fact, opinion polls from earlier this year show that Hamas is deeply unpopular among Palestinians due to its brutal and ineffective governance. Hamas is a proven terrorist organization and I emphatically oppose its ideology and tactics.
However, I worry nonetheless that the widespread suffering in Gaza will radicalize a new generation of Palestinian and Arab youth against Israel and its backers, including the United States. I am deeply saddened by the loss of life in this conflict, and support an immediate ceasefire to negotiate a political solution to Israel's legitimate concerns about Hamas's weapons and tunnels into Israel, as well as the humanitarian concerns of the Palestinian people.
Time and time again, Israel is targeted by terrorist attacks against its civilian population, and is threatened by surrounding countries that oppose its existence. Meanwhile, the Palestinians live under an occupation and blockade that involves daily misery and humiliation. The only way to end this war and prevent another one is for Israel and the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table and work with Secretary Kerry to achieve a lasting solution that results in two states for two peoples living side by side in peace and security.
Thank you again for contacting me about this matter. I appreciate hearing from you and assure you that I will always do my best to represent the views of my constituents in the Senate. In the future, please do not hesitate to call me in my Connecticut office at (860) 549-8463 or in my Washington office at (202) 224-4041.

Every Best Wish,

Christopher S. Murphy
United States Senator

How is this a non answer? The only solution I'd through diplomacy. Hamas has repeatedly refused to negotiate, and has repeatedly broken their promises. The Senator is correct. The situation is intolerable. But there is plenty of blame to go around. Hamas had 9 years to negotiate. Instead they lobbed rockets at Israel. Maybe you need to re-evaluate your stance. And ask why we should support a terrorist organization like Hamas.

I support innocent citizens and children. I don't understand WHY people just excuse Israel for its crimes. Israel has taken Palestinian land and homes and created settlements for their own people in violation of International Law. They continue this practice to this day,and have no plans on stopping it. Israel routinely tortures children, arbitrarily imprisons them, sometimes kills them, and denies them due process and rule of law. Again, violation of International law - Not to mention COMPLETELY unethical and abhorrent! Why would ANYONE 'negotiate' when their homes have been taken??? Would you? I don't understand how Hamas' terrorist activities somehow magically absolves Israel of its own crimes! And it REALLY angers me that my tax dollars are paying for these crimes!

Roberto M.: I got so caught up in the moment I neglected to answer your original question, "How is this a non answer?" My dear Senator Murphy provides a lot of opinion with little substance. NOWHERE does he state what action as a Senator, who is supposed to represent ME,he is going to take to assist in ending the slaughter. His letter offers no real solution and is basically a statement saying that while he feels bad, he won't do shit. Here is a clue to people who seem to have forgotten how the Government works: I did NOT elect my Senator to act on their personal opinion. I really don't give a DAMN about their own opinion. I voted for them to represent ME. Not THEM. I voted for them to represent ME. Not lobbyists, big business, or other people and entities that bribe them and fund their campaigns. How about a middle of the road statement Senator Murphy? Something like "While I fully support Israel's right to defend itself we have to draw the line at the slaughter of innocents. I fully support the Law. And unless Israel comes into line with international law and the treaties it signed regarding this matter I will have to act to cease Israel's funding. We are not saying do not defend. We are saying follow Rule of Law" How hard would that be?!?!? And how could anyone find fault with a Senator requiring that the law be followed? Cowards!

All the extreme movements popping up in the Middle East these days are the direct result of the crimes Israel has been committing against defenseless civilians ever since its founding. Their brutality mirrors the brutality Israel employs against innocent civilians with the distinct difference of NOT murdering children by using fighter jets, helicopters, missile boats, white phosphorus and dense inert metal explosives.

Stan B: And how exactly does this pale in comparison with Israel murdering women and children, stealing their property and occupying their homes? How does this pale in comparison with Israel torturing children, threatening them with rape, and the harm of their families? NO ONE is excusing terrorism! We are ALL protesting against violations of international law, and violations of international treaties!! PLUS! My tax dollars are paying for this! While we all protest illegal immigrants and the like because they supposedly cost our country money, we have NO problem supporting genocide in the Palestine!

Self-defense or provocation: Israel’s history of breaking ceasefires
Since Israel's creation in 1948, Israeli political and military leaders have demonstrated a pattern of repeatedly violating ceasefires with their enemies in order to gain military advantage, for territorial aggrandizement, or to provoke their opponents into carrying out acts of violence that Israel can then exploit politically and/or use to justify military operations already planned.

The fact sheet provides a brief overview of some of the most high profile and consequential ceasefire violations committed by the Israeli military over the past six decades.

I think the U.S. could do a lot to end the massacre right now--and at least give the people of Gaza some immediate relief from the constant bombing---if our government would refuse to re-arm Israeli troops and withdraw our 'support' of Israel. That's why Marc P.'s Congressman's answer is a non-answer-sound and fury (if that) signifying nothing! The U.S. could also ask Egypt to open the Rafah crossing, so that Pa;lestinians could escape the cage they're trapped in-the injured could receive medical help that doctors in Gaza can't provide because they have no medical supplies left...U.S. could give funds to Egypt to help with the refugees needs instead of funding the Israeli war machine. The BDS Movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) is the long-term means to force Israel to end the genocide of the Palestinians.

Something that bewilders me is people who appear to believe that two wrongs make a "right" for one of them ...

Mass deaths in Gaza are OK because reports suggest that a movement of extremists (- who are not Palestinians but whose leaders reportedly originally had US support & reportedly Mossad training, before they started a mad drive for their own power zone) - have reported carried out mass executions in Iraq??

How does this logic work? So all Palestinians = Islamists = monsters? Which justifies any form of destruction, any form of killing, of any and all people in Gaza? QED?

Should we apply it to "Extremist Jewish Israeli settlers, supposedly religious, burn youth alive ... so all Israelis and all Jews are barbaric"? QED?

I don't think so -
So - why are some people here trying to deviate attention from Israeli human rights abuses by using such "logic"?

Perhaps because basically, they know that such actions are wrong, but have to attack any criticism of the State of Israel's policies & strategies and have to attack anyone who expresses rejection of extremism, rather than be honest.

Ironically, most of the members here will criticise extremism & racism & intolerance ... on all sides. Attitudes that would certainly go further to reduce vulnerability of Israelis and of Jews than the attitudes of those who try to build a racist State as a defence against racism.

After sending a private message here on Care2, I was presented with this quote:

"The robbed man that smiles steals something from the thief." - William Shakespeare

After reading it, all I could think about were the Palestinian children. They don’t/can’t smile because they don’t want to steal anything from the thief; they just want their land back.

Thank you Sam for this article - wish I would know what to say. Words fail me. And thanks for all the excellent comments.

Linda - you're right but Egypt has already long time ago opened Rafah for the wounded to come to our hospitals and to bring in food, medicine and cloths. At times the crossing is closed for hours because of security reasons. Like yeserday when the Egyptian army started evacuating the residents on the Egyptian side of Rafah due to the damages caused on the Egyptian side by the heavy shelling by Israel. Not much to hear in the international news about this ...

But why doesn't the US "force" Israel to stop its war crimes and crimes against humanity? That would be the only decent and correct action to take ... but far from ... the US sends more of the deadly weapons to be dropped on the innocent civilians of Gaza.

We were celebrating on Aug 1 the 70th anniversary of the uprising in Warsaw against the Nazi occupation. Why do we celebrate this uprising against occupation as heroic, hold speeches and hand out medals ... yet when the Plaestinians do the very same ... they are "savage terrorists"?

If the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto or in any of the concentration camps would have launched rockets towards the German occupiers - would anyone have dared to call them terrorists?

I don't think so!

Apart from Eleonora's excellent point there, let me pick up this from her comment: "But why doesn't the US "force" Israel to stop its war crimes and crimes against humanity?" We all know the answer, don't we..

This is what their "force" looks like, todays statement-by far the harshest yet- from the DOS about the new shelling of a UN school:
"The United States is appalled by today's disgraceful shelling outside an UNRWA school in Rafah sheltering some 3,000 displaced persons, in which ten more Palestinian civilians were tragically killed. We once again stress that Israel do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties. UN facilities, especially those sheltering civilians, must be protected, and must not be used as bases from which to launch attacks. The suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify strikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians."
WOW - now be sure to wait for a furious response from Israel. ..Just hope there won't (again!) be an apology from the State department!

Hi Sam - regarding your comment about the extreme movements popping up in the Middle East ... maybe we should remember Edward Snowden and what he leaked among other things - http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=76b_1406255768 - with photo to compare (this Abu Bakr guy is just ugly no matter what):

"The former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British and American intelligence and the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Snowden said intelligence services of three countries created a terrorist organisation that is able to attract all extremists of the world to one place, using a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”.

NSA documents refer to recent implementation of the hornet’s nest to protect the Zionist entity by creating religious and Islamic slogans.

According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”.

Leaks revealed that ISIS leader and cleric Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi took intensive military training for a whole year in the hands of Mossad, besides courses in theology and the art of speech."

Does anyone know more about this subject? I was not too much into details about the Snowden case other than the "common" knowledge. But it sure is something to think about as it would be in line with the "rebels" in Libya, Syria and to some extent in Egypt; their financiers, trainers, etc.

Thanks for this article especially this last person Eleonoar. She has some very interesting what sounds likes facts. I believe what she says about Edward Snowden sayings the former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA) Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British & American Intelligence & the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria (ISIS).
There is so much more I have to learn about,so much more
