Gaza Again

(BEIT SAHOUR, Occupied Palestine) - People are subjected to massive well-funded propaganda trying to sell a "product" that "Israel is defending itself" by massacring civilians in Gaza (again) and engaging in extrajudicial executions of resistance fighters.

The truth is hard to hide as are the statistics: Over the last four days, 16 Palestinian civilians were killed including several children (while 3 Israelis were killed), and over 170 Palestinian civilians were injured (very few Israelis).

Over 140 military excursions were carried out by the most sophisticated US supplied war planes and navy ships on 1.5 million people in a large open-air prison.

Anyone can find the pictures on the internet of burned Palestinian babies, mutilated children, devastated neighborhoods, and destroyed power plants and infrastructure.

The Gaza strip is one of the most densely populated areas on earth thanks to the Israeli ethnic cleansing creating the largest post-WWII refugee population on earth. 2/3rds of the 1.6 million people in this arid strip are refugees.

All Israeli human rights violations are done by US funded horrific weapons for which native Palestinians have no defense. Homemade native projectiles fair poorly as a response to the massacre by advanced technologies.

Yet, the US administration still sides with apartheid colonial Israel against the native Palestinians and so are the governments of Britain and France that are trying to live-up to their colonial activities.

Israeli authorities intensified their attacks tonight after home-made projectiles fired by resistance forces in Gaza landed in Rishon Le Zion (first colonial settlement here) and Tel Aviv (first time since the gulf war that sirens were heard in Israel's de facto capital).

People of all backgrounds are speaking out against these Israeli initiated attacks.

Here in Palestine, we had demonstrations including against the silly bickering that the factions go through.

There are also demonstrations around the world demanding Israel end its aggression against this impoverished strip of land full of refugees.

But we must do more than demonstrate and hold vigils.
