No Water. No Food. No Medicine. No Electricity. No Internet. No Phones. Yet those Palestinians are still a threat to the strongest army in the Middle East. The only entity in the whole world that still believes the Israeli lies is the US Congress.

And even Congress doesn’t believe these Israeli lies anymore, but politicians are not known for their courage or for telling the truth.

What could be more cowardly and barbaric than staving a population to death? Genghis Khan himself couldn’t have thought of these cruel ways to annihilate a population!

Thanks for posting, Sam

Stop and think - each day, if you are environment-sensitive, you use about 70 litres of water ....

The people of Gaza have almost NONE, and most of what they can get is raw, polluted
- and the destruction of the power station means that getting safe water out, especially in homes, will take months - IF the materials are allowed in.

Water is essential for life. If people can't drink, they'll die of dehydration.

Knocking out the electrical supply also reduces the Gazans' (& the journalists') possibilities to share the truth about life - existence - within Gaza .... That is strategically critical for IDF & the Israeli government.

"No Water. No Food. No Medicine. No Electricity. No Internet. No Phones. Yet those Palestinians are still a threat to the strongest army in the Middle East." Is that like no concrete to rebuild and yet we see the pictures of the tunnels?

What the devastating strikes over the past weeks haven't accomplished yet, this latest crime causing power and water outage just might as epicemics threaten to take even more lives.
I find it harder every day to even comment on each new horror story about this genocide, it's more than anyone can take.
Perhaps let me cite a comment found on a G.Greenwald article:
"Israel has injured itself as much as Gaza. Hatred is a slow poison. When the last Palestinian has been killed or driven out, the Israelis will turn on each other. They have chosen the path of hatred and brutality and now it is theirs."

There was very lil of anything made available to the Palestinians before+now there's nothing--no essentials 4 the survivors. It's going as planned--that Israeli thug government wants all Palestinians out--it's just that simple really--dead or alive-it doesn't matter. Thanks Sam

Next to photo above.....

No Water. No Food. No Medicine. No Electricity. No Internet. No Phones. Yet those Palestinians are still a threat to the strongest army in the Middle East.

Kind of the same overkill with a group of hungry to the point of near starvation American Indians, who were cold, tired, sick with few guns. Surrounded by the Federal Government's Calvary of the USA who had rifles but also Hotchkiss Revolving Cannons.......

Yes, I see a lot of similarities there.......too bad the US citizens didn't......but hey, few spoke up against it very loudly back then and still those who killed those men, women, and children even received medals of honor for having murdered unarmed Elders, children, and women. If people don't "get it" when it happens in their own backyard, how are they to "get it" anywhere.

That the world watches while this happens to these people, like it watched when the people in Rwanda were hacked to death, but perhaps over here in the USA we didn't watch. Our TV stations covered the OJ Simpson events from morning to night. I fault the media a lot for a covering of the events, their silence, the promotion of falsehoods.

I fault the world's people who go about their daily lives without a thought that tomorrow it could be them. My ancestors knew of these tragic conditions, we could all be in that place again, like those who are having this happen to them in more recent times to what is going on today. When our brothers and sisters do not speak up against inhumanity not matter how neatly it's packaged, tomorrow it could be us.

How people can explain it away is amazing......I listen to it on the TV and read it even on C2. But then with the fact that we have people being killed in the USA for throwing popcorn at someone or walking down the street with a box of skittles, perhaps the moral compass of a people has totally gone askew. If people are too blinded to see what is before their eyes, their minds too indoctrinated that they sleep walk through their life, then this is the most tragic of all. I speak for my own Country but I also speak of others who can always find a reason to look the other way when unarmed people and innocent children are being murdered.

Interestingly, the post of our friend, Good H., was removed.

This is what his post said:

Miko Peled, Israeli Son Of Military General, Talks About What Is REALLY Going On In Israel, Historically All The Way Up To Today.

The link provided apparently wasn’t acceptable to Care2.

Luckily, our friend, Evelyn B., was able to give us access to Mr. Miko Peled’s valuable and informative speech.

In my own way of looking at things, I chose to refer to Mr. Peled as the Howard Zinn of Israel. When you listen to his speech, you’ll find out why.

This is the link to his speech:

Shame on Netanyahu, his apologists and the US governments for enabling Israel for decades and funding the illegal occupation and another massacre in Gaza.

Sam, I have always said that there is either human rights for everyone or human rights for no one. My views on this are well known--my great support of a two state solution in Israel/Palestine is unchanged. I wonder how Hamas could have diverted so much concrete from building infrastructure in Gaza to building tunnels for smuggling weapons. I wonder why so many civilians must die on both sides for peace to emerge and will it ever emerge?

Sam H (410)

Cal, Aren't we asking the wrong question? I wonder how the US diverts $3 billion to Israel when our bridges are crumbling and we can't pay for their repairs. When you imprison 2 million people, what do you expect? The tunnels apparently were not built overnight. So all this time they were probably used to break the siege for nonlethal objectives. Under normal circumstances, I would be against any religion-based rights for either side. But at this point, every Gazan is a defender and a freedom fighter. What would killing the children of Gaza accomplish?

I don't wonder how some prisoners in Nazi concentration camps managed to dig tunnels, devising dangerous and desperate plans to escape..

think a few steps ahead (you need a lot of criminal imagination) as ZioNazi would act in the current theater:

The demolition of the al-Aqsa Mosque by Zionist agents (blamed either on Putin, Hamas or The Iran) will then be probably the PSYOP crecsendo to the whole development.
Speaking of false flags, like the killed Jewish Teenagers ...

(Alternatively the Knesset would be a good target to destroy by Mossad criminal minds as a pretext for escalation leading to the desired, sound Armageddon)

My personal imagination goes in a different direction: I wonder how much longer the PA will wait before bringing charges to the ICC..if now isn't the time, then when?? The entire world community is backing this step.

Thanks Sam for the article. I wrote a comment about their being no moral force to stop the killing, and the usual disgusting hypocricy of the US as it "urges" for peace while restocking the IDF with weapons. The people who won't criticize Israel no matter what will go back to completely ignoring the blockade of Gaza and Israel's daily actions once this extreme violence is over. History conveniently starts for them at whatever point supports their ideology. Anyway, the comment disappeared but i guess that covers it.

Sam H (410)

We'll make sure this one doesn't disappear. You're absolutely correct, Bryan. This hypocrisy can't continue forever.
