Israeli & US Barbarians on the March

Israeli & US Barbarians on the March

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Along with hundreds of civilians killed, thousands wounded, and over 500,000 fleeing for their lives, Israel has launched a series of debilitating air strikes against privately owned factories throughout Lebanon and is "dealing a devastating blow to an economy already paralyzed by a week of hits on residential areas and crucial infrastructure," according to the Daily Star of Beirut.

The production facilities of the largest dairy farm have been destroyed as well as a pharmaceutical plant. It will take decades to restore the country. Israel is also bombing apartment buildings, churches and gas stations - anything and everything in its gun sights.

Israel is bombing Lebanon and Gaza to kingdom come because of three Israeli soldiers (who kill Arabs) that Hamas and Hizbullah abducted in an attempt to secure the release of 400 Palestinian children and over 100 women who were abducted by Israeli Occupation Forces and are kept in Israel jails, without charge, where they are tortured and abused.

There are 10,000 political prisoners in Israeli jails vs. 3 Israeli political prisoners. The USA has given the green light for the barbaric attacks to continue - because Hizbullah dares to fight back.

Past president of the Lebanese Association of Industrialists, Jacques Sarraf remarked, "Israel is the enemy and they are doing everything they can to destroy the country, economically, socially, politically." Israel, the USA are pursuing a scorched earth policy towards Arabs and Islam just as Hitler once pursued the Jews.

Resistance fighters are not terrorists, countries using overwhelming force are.
