LATEST

Israel names its latest killing spree

Israel National News reports: “The IDF has begun a wide scale operation, which has been named “Amud Anan,” or “Cloud Column,” a phrase that refers to the column that led the Israelites in Sinai during the Exodus from Egypt.”

Y-net calls it Operation Cloud Pillar

Haaretz calls it Pillar of Cloud.

Whatever they call it, I call it an unprovoked MASSACRE OF INNOCENT PEOPLE and I demand international intervention to stop the criminal Israeli state IMMEDIATELY.

Israel even strikes hospitals


The Israeli air-strike that killed Al Qassam commander Ahmad Al Jaabari targeted him while he was in a car at the gates of Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.

There is a transport station outside Al Shifa hospital for people coming from all parts of the Gaza Strip. The gates of Shifa Hospital always have many civilians nearby, at all hours of the day and night.

This is a very clear CIVILIAN TARGET, and constitutes a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

Israeli Extra-Judicial Assassination Provokes to Justify All-Out Offensive

The premeditated murder of Al Qassam Commander Ahmad Al Jaabari and his bodyguard Mohammad Al-Hams should be abhorred by anyone with any pretension to the Rule of Law, self-determination, and human rights.

This criminal act against individuals who have done nothing but exercise their and their country’s legitimate right to resist its illegal occupation by a rogue state should be condemned by every nation and organisation with any interest in upholding human rights and international law.

Today’s extra-judicial assassinations are not only a travesty of justice, but also a blatant attempt to provoke Gaza into a response to justify a full-out Israeli military offensive against the Gaza Strip, and Hamas in particular.

Israel has gone too far. They have exceeded even their own lowest depths of depravity, and will undoubtedly pay a heavy price.

History will be the judge, and the evidence is there for all to see – Israel, and Israel alone, is the intellectual and material author of whatever carnage follows this latest butchery, and bears total responsibility.

Every country that stands by and enables it to continue, will stand equally condemned.

Israel kills in unprovoked air strike in Gaza City

Israeli Forces killed the Commander of the Al Qassam Brigades, Ahmad Ja’bri, in an unprovoked airstrike in Gaza City half an hour ago.

Early reports say his car was hit, killing Jaabari, and injuring his body guard.

Irate citizens are firing into the air outside Shifa hospital as news of the death spreads, while fire crews attend the scene of the strike.

There have been no rockets fired from Gaza in the last 24 hours.

Gordon Campbell: On Trump And The Madman Theory

Years ago, Richard Nixon explained to his chief adviser Bob Haldeman what has since become known as the “Madman Theory” of foreign policy. Basically, if America’s rivals could be reminded that Nixon was an unstable, rabid anti-Communist with his finger on the nuclear trigger, Nixon reasoned, then maybe they’d be less willing to challenge the US in the world’s hot spots… More>>
