Gaza Strip, Monday, Dec. 29, 2008.
In recalling the history of the Zionist state of Israel, embedded in the indigenous territory historically and biblically known as Palestine, one would find that the ongoing massacre in Gaza is no more than one of a series of slaughters and massacres inflicted on the Palestinians and other Arabs by the military wing of the international Zionist movement.
The insistence of putting the responsibility of this reliance on the mass killings of the very people this unholy movement has evicted from their ancestral homeland since time was gauged is enforced by the seemingly hogwashy coverage by the western press of the terrible crimes now being inflicted in Gaza. From Deir Yassin in 1948 to Qana (1996 and 2006) to Gaza, and the many villages in between in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula, the so called Israeli Defense Forces and their various death squad manifestations (including so called “deranged” Zionist extremists of the likes of Menahim Begin and the murderer of the Ibrahim Mosque in Hebron) have relied on the flagrant use of organized and legitimized terrorism.
By using the most lethal and modern killing tools generously supplied to it by the United States the terrorist state of Israel has sought to inflict the maximum spilling of bloodshed possible with merciless impunity. For obvious reasons, the Zionist machine knows well that its very presence in the Holy Land is not based on any meaningful legal pretext whatsoever and certainly disdained by the very victims of this unholy presence. The major victims of this ongoing sadistic disregard for human life have mostly been civilians of the likes of the residents of Gaza, who are already subject to the most unbearable living conditions.
Of course the issue in all these criminal acts in the land of the olive tree – the symbol of peace – is not simply the firing of harmless firecrackers into illegal Israeli residences, or the throwing of pebbles by the very people forcefully evicted from the land where those settlements now exist. After all these illegal settlements are usually as a result of the several massacres inflicted by the Zionists over the past years of Israel’s illegal existence and ongoing illegal occupation and siege of the Palestinians in the remaining territory that has not been walled in, illegally settled, or under siege or occupation. This is the hogwash that the western press has used as the “justification” for the mad sadism now being inflicted in Gaza.
Needless to say, the people of the region and most civilized and knowledgeable westerners and easterners know full well that the massacres in Gaza are no more than Israel just being the Israel they have always known. The very existence of Israel and its sustainability is reliant on mass bloodshed (see this link for a detailed list of all the massacres that Israel has inflicted before and after its existence until 1999: http://www.soundofegypt.com/Palestinian/adult/massacres.htm ). The indiscriminate shedding of Arab blood is the only method which Israel can use to instill its non-bona fide raison d’être. The Zionist machine cannot ever feel safe except if the victims of its very existence are left in mass prisons like Gaza, deprived of the basic minimum essentials for sustenance and deprived of any freedom of movement to seek brighter lives anywhere in the world that will still be considered as a haven of mercy from Zionist persecution. It is this ongoing oppression that is the only vehicle for assuring the sustainability of this criminal experiment in nation building.
After all, what is the reason for the Zionist machine possessing well over 200 nuclear warheads and the most state of the art killing machine in the world? This is Israel’s vehicle to terrorize not only the Arabs, but the rest of the world as well, isn’t it? However that is another issue to be discussed some other time in CS.
The fact of the matter is that Israel’s very existence will not find any acceptability until the Zionist mentality is rehabilitated to realizing that its desire for peace can never be ascertained by the excessive reliance on excessive murder and bloodshed. Especially if this sadistic craving is inflicted on the victims of the manifestation of a bogus Zionist dream of conquering the land of Zion (“Eretz Israel”), which supposedly extends from the Nile to the Euphrates (as illustrated by a map in the wall of the Israeli Knesset).
In reality, Israel is the manifestation of terror. The fact is that is that no modern state has so systematically and inhumanely relied on terror by using all the modern killing technology freely available to the IDF. Why? Because Israel must use its military hardware indiscriminately against those who only seek to be granted justice and to be free from an inhumane occupation, siege and ongoing oppression that continuously defies comprehension by any civilized observer.
The western press is a part of this heavy reliance on “state” terrorism as it resorts to “Big Brother” media techniques to distort the issues by persistently pointing out the Palestinian rocket attacks as the real reasons for the flagrant mass killings in Gaza [to moment of writing this: 350 dead and well over a thousand five hundred injured Palestinians, (1 Israeli dead – how disproportionate can one get?) with the bombs still falling on Gaza and the Israeli armor divisions ready to recopy (magnified several times) the Jenin massacre, in which it was reported that at least 56 Palestinians, half of whom were civilians, were mercilessly slaughtered].
As far as most objective observers are concerned, this is Israel being Israel as they have known it all along its blood stained history.
