    Default Palestinian Holocaust Continues….

    “In the face of sufferings of Afro-Americans, Vietnamese and Palestinians, my mother’s credo always was: We are all holocaust victims - Dr. Norman G. Finkelstein, in his best-seller, The Holocaust Industry.

    The so-called “prophet” of Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl, though born to a Jewish mother, never claimed to be a practicing Jew and for his nationalist objectives - was willing to accept some land awarded to European Jews by the western powers, may it be Madagascar or Argentina, Uganda or Tripoli, Cyprus or Mozambique, or the Cong, according to Herzl’s Diaries.

    “Leading the cry: We are God’s Chosen People, are the Zionist/Marxist (Ashkenazi) Jews, who for political purposes chose Judaism and who don’t have a drop of biblical Jewish blood in them (they’re Khazarian Turks). The Judeo-Christian ethic we hear so much about in America is a big joke - the result of an intense Zionist propaganda campaign,” - Jack Bernstein in his book The life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel.

    Early in 1935, a passenger ship bound for Haifa in Palestine left the German port of Bremerhaven. Its sterm bore the Hebrew letter for its name “Tel Aviv” while the Nazi swastika banner fluttered from the mast. And although the ship was Zionist-owned, its Captain was a National Socialist Party (NAZI) member. The mentioning of this old episode is to show that the ZionFacist, who spend tens of millions of dollars annually to brainwash the western generation about the evil history of Nazi-era and Hitler - were in fact themselves collaborated not only with Hitler’s Third Reich, but some 150,000 German-Jews were part of Nazi Army.
    Now, the so-called ‘Nazi victims’ are celebrating the end of Jewish Hannukkah holidays by spilling more blood of innocent Muslims and Christians in Hamas-ruled Gazzah. They began carpet-bombing the tiny area housing 1.5 million Natives on Dec. 27, and their Zionazi assualt has entered its third day, today. So far more than 300 Palestinians are reported martyred and several hundreds more wounded. The Zionist-regimes in the US and Britain has used their veto power against UN Security Council’s condemnation of Israeli invasion of Gazzah. Iran’s Spiritual Leader, Ayatullah Khameini, threw his support behimd Hamas government and said that all the victims of Israeli thugs are “martyrs”. Israel’s longest Muslim ally, the Kemalist Turkey’s prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the Zionist regime of using “disproportionate force”.

    As expected, the majority of western puppet regimes in the Muslim world kept their mouths shut in fear of USrael backlash - hundreds of thousands protestors hit the streets in Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, Islamabad, and Tehran - burning flags of Usrael and its chief ally, United States - accusing both governments in engaging in international terrorism.

    It’s immoral and wrong to demand from the victims not to resist the oppressors

    important: this article is being circulated to inform our muslim brothers and sisters as to the current affairs affecting the muslims; circulation of this article should therefore not be misconstrued as anything but the sharing of such information.


    First Published 2008-12-28
    Can There Be Any Doubt Who The Real Terrorists Are?

    The long drawn-out siege and blockade of Gaza, and the numerous military assaults on its people and their legitimate government, are only the latest (Israeli) crimes in a catalogue of torment and terror, notes Stuart Littlewood.

    US definition fits perfectly

    The patience of all decent men must surely be exhausted.

    Today's slaughter of innocents in Gaza, with at least 230 reported killed in raids on "Hamas terror operatives" (as the Israeli military put it), amounted to "a mass execution", said Hamas.

    Can there now be any doubt who the real terrorists are?

    The killing spree couldn't have happened without the tacit approval of America, Britain and the EU. The political pea-brains that direct the pro-Israel western alliance were partying, gorging themselves on Christmas fare or binge-shopping while this massacre of hungry women and children and their despairing menfolk in Gaza was being planned and executed.

    According to the US's own definition of terrorism Israel is squarely in the frame. Under Section 3 of Executive Order 13224 "Blocking Property and prohibiting Transactions with Persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support Terrorism", the term "terrorism" means an activity that

    (i) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life, property, or infrastructure; and

    (ii) appears to be intended

    • to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

    • to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

    • to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, kidnapping, or hostage-taking.

    The order and its definition of terrorism, signed 23 September 2001 by George W Bush, is used to outlaw and crush any organization, individual or country the US doesn't like. The Israeli regime's "amoral thugs", as a British MP branded them, have plainly been terrorizing the Palestinians for the last 60 years.

    The long drawn-out siege and blockade of Gaza, and the numerous military assaults on its people and their legitimate government, are only the latest crimes in a catalogue of torment and terror.
    They are clearly attempts to "intimidate and coerce", while the mass destruction of Gaza's infrastructure, the withholding of humanitarian aid, the assassinations, the abductions, the bulldozing of Palestinian homes, and the many violent and dangerous acts including indiscriminate bombing and shelling (and the use of cluster bombs in Lebanon), ensure Israel's ugly head is a perfect fit for America's terrorist hat.

    How does the world feel about Obama pledging to "forge an unshakeable bond" with the "miracle" of Terrorist Israel?

    How do we feel about the EU rewarding Israel for its terrorist acts with enhanced benefits under the EU-Israel Association Agreement?

    How do we Brits feel about our Intelligence and Security Committee being chaired by a Friend of Terrorist Israel and 5 out of its 9 members also being the Zionist regime's devoted Friends? How do we feel about our Foreign Affairs Committee being chaired by a Friend of Terrorist Israel...and our Defence Committee too?

    Britain's prime minister Brown and his predecessor, now peace envoy Blair, both self-confessed Zionists, have given their undying support to a terrorist state and steered Britain's foreign policy on a course that has earned the opprobrium of civilised people.

    The best Brown could do today was urge "restraint". He called on Gazan "militants" to "cease all rocket attacks on Israel immediately", but didn't urge his bosom pals to end the siege and their illegal occupation which, as every sane person knows, are the cause of the strife. Our Foreign Office went so far as to say they were "deeply concerned" then spouted the mantra: "The only way to achieve a lasting peace is through peaceful means".

    The only peaceful means of achieving a lasting peace is for Western leaders to pull the plug on Israel until the regime conforms to international law and the will of the United Nations (without whose misguided generosity there would never have been a state of Israel), pulls back behind the 1967 border and strictly observes the principles of universal human rights.

    If they don't shoulder their responsibility, they risk a mighty moral backlash from ordinary people, who are beginning to learn the awful truth.

    Stuart Littlewood is author of the book Radio Free Palestine, which tells the plight of the Palestinians under occupation.

    Iranian group recruits volunteers to fight Israel

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - A group of influential conservative Iranian clerics launched an online registration drive on Monday seeking volunteers to fight against Israel in response to its air assault on the Gaza Strip. About 3,550 people registered Monday with the Combatant Clergy Society's Web site. The weeklong online campaign gives volunteers three options on ways they can fight Israel: military, financial and propaganda.

    The group, which has considerable political and economic power in Iran, did not provide further details on the program including how it would contact the volunteers or implement the program.

    The conservative clerics decided to sign up volunteers after Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, issued a religious decree on Sunday that said anyone killed while defending Palestinians in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip against Israeli attacks would be considered a martyr.

    Khamenei's religious decree was not considered a government decision and did not oblige the government to launch attacks against Israel.

    Israel's airstrikes on the Gaza Strip have sparked outrage in Iran and throughout the rest of the Muslim world. About 300 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,000 wounded since the air assault began Saturday. Israel says it launched its campaign in retaliation for rocket fire aimed at civilians in southern Israeli towns.

    Also Monday, the Iranian Red Crescent sent a ship carrying 2,000 tons of food to Palestinians living in Gaza to be delivered via Egypt. An Iranian military plane also landed at Cairo International Airport carrying 24 tons of food and medicine destined for Gaza.

    The head of Iran's Red Crescent, Masoud Khatami, said three more ships were waiting to be loaded with humanitarian aid, and Iranian hospitals were ready to receive injured Gazans, according to the official Iran news agency, IRNA.

    Israeli naval ship shoots Gaza aid boat

    An Israeli naval ship shot on Tuesday a small boat carrying international activists with aid destined for Gaza under Israel siege, agencies said.

    There were no reported casualties from the shooting involving the small cabin cruiser "Dignity" that sailed from Cyprus late on Monday. One passenger said nobody was hurt.

    Free Gaza Movement told Reuters their boat, carrying 3 1/2 tons of medical aid with 16 people aboard, was rammed and shot at while in international waters about 70-80 miles off Gaza by Israeli naval vessel.

    Yigal Palmor, a spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry, denied there had been any shooting, he said the two ships made "physical contact".

    Palmor said that an Israeli vessel "clashed with the ship."

    Israel said the Free Gaza Movement boat would be prevented to dock in the Gaza Strip.

    A passenger on the Free Gaza Movement boat said it was now trying to reach Lebanon after the shooting.

    "The boat was hit on its left side. There is a problem with the fuel and we are trying to head to Sidon," said Katia Christodoulou, a photographer for the Cyprus News Agency.
    Free Gaza Movement said their boat was safe, but had sustained damage.

    Israel declared the coastal territory a "closed military zone" after it launched air attacks on Gaza on Saturday, killing nearly 400 Palestinians.

    Hospitals were already facing shortages of medicines and other medical products due to the Israeli siege imposed after the Hamas government seized full control of the territory in 2007.

    As well as more than three tons of aid, the Dignity was carrying three doctors to help treat the more than 1,600 wounded in recent days.


    Comments:


    Where is the Egyptian Navy? Why can't Egypt at least provide escort to relief vessels?

    We must not forget that Israel seized the Gaza strip from Egypt in the 1967 war. Therefore, Egypt bears a special responsibility and the greatest duty to protect and assist Palestinians in Gaza.

    But what can we say when a 79 year old hypocrite (rather kaafir) can rule over and control 75 million Muslims!

    Israel calls up reserve troops and sends tanks to Gaza border after killing more than 280 in 'one of the bloodiest days in 60 years'


    Fears of invasion are growing after Israel called up thousands of reservists and moved dozens of tanks to the Gaza Strip border.


    The move follows one of the bloodiest days in 60 years of conflict between the Palestinians and the Jewish state, in which more than 280 people in Gaza were killed.

    Air strikes were launched on Gaza for a second day, piling pressure on Hamas, in what Israeli leaders said was a response to almost daily rocket and mortar fire by Gaza militants following the end of a six-month ceasefire a week ago.


    'Right now, we are not considering an end to the fighting,' Israeli Cabinet Secretary Oved Yehezkel said on Israel Radio. 'We have the time, patience and means ... to return life in southern Israel to normal.'


    Under clear morning skies, an Israeli air strike destroyed the headquarters of Hamas's al-Aqsa television stations, which continued broadcasting from an unknown location. Israeli aircraft also attacked a training facility for Hamas fighters.

    Palestinian militants continued to fire rockets across the border, including one that police said landed in open territory about 18 miles inside southern Israel. No casualties were reported.


    Dozens of Israeli armoured vehicles massed along the Gaza border for a possible ground invasion while the U.N. Security Council called for a halt to the violence.
    Israeli military affairs commentators said the Israeli offensive did not appear to be aimed at retaking the Gaza Strip or destroying the territory's Hamas government - ambitious goals that could prove difficult and politically risky to achieve ahead of Israel's February parliamentary election.


    Israel declared a state of emergency in its communities in a 12-mile range of Gaza, putting the area on a war footing. But it was not clear whether it was preparing to send ground forces back into the Gaza Strip, which it left in 2005.


    Since a fragile six-month truce ended on December 19, more than 200 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Israel, causing damage and and some injuries.
    Immediately after yesterday’s airstrikes Hamas, the Islamist faction that rules the Palestinian territory, vowed revenge, and several medium-range missiles were fired into Israel, killing one man and injuring four others.


    A spokesman said it would continue resisting ‘until the last drop of blood’.

    In Gaza, black clouds of smoke rose high into the air as missiles fired by scores of Israeli F-16 bombers struck more than 50 security installations and bases throughout the Strip, burying many people under rubble.



    The air strikes caused widespread panic and confusion, as black clouds of smoke rose above the territory.

    Medical staff struggled to cope with the wounded and dying flooding into hospitals in cars, vans and ambulances.


    At Shifa Hospital, Gaza’s main medical amenity, beds ran out within minutes and bleeding bodies were lined up on the floors of the corridors as medics fought to help the most severe cases.


    Some of the missiles struck in densely populated areas as children were leaving school and women rushed into the streets frantically looking for their children.


    Mothers tried desperately to reach their children through the smoke that filled the streets, along with the sound of ambulance sirens and the cries of grieving relatives.
    Shopkeeper Said Masri, 57, who sent out his nine-year-old son to buy cigarettes minutes before the air strikes began, sat in the middle of a Gaza City street close to a security compound, alternately slapping his face and covering his head with dust from the bombed-out building.


    'My son is gone, my son is gone,’ he wailed.


    ‘May I burn like the cigarettes, may Israel burn.’


    Corpses rolled up in blankets filled hospital floors, awaiting identification.


    ‘We are treating people on the floor, in the corridors. We have no more space. We don’t know who is here or who to treat first,’ said one doctor.

    The Gaza Strip has been effectively sealed off from the rest of the world for many months, leaving stocks of surgical equipment, drugs and other essentials very low.
    Among those who bore the brunt of the ferocious attack were 40 Palestinian cadets who had gathered for their passing-out parade at the police headquarters in Gaza City.



    A Hamas general, who was due to take their salute, was among the pile of bodies after a massive explosion – possibly from a laser-guided bomb – tore through the parade ground where families were about to watch the ceremony.


    Several of those who rushed to help the dead and injured beat their heads and shouted: ‘Allahu akbar’ [‘God is great’].



    The Israeli military authorities said they had targeted ‘Hamas terror operatives’ as well as training camps and weapons storage warehouses. Defending the raids, Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni said it had ‘no choice’ but to defend its citizens.


    Last week Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned on Arab TV that he did not want war but ‘Hamas must be stopped. I will not hesitate to use Israel’s might to strike Hamas and Islamic jihad [holy war]’.



    International reaction to yesterday’s attacks was swift. Gordon Brown, the Vatican, the UN and special Middle East envoy Tony Blair all called for an immediate restoration of calm.


    Mr Miliband said this afternoon: 'The Prime Minister and I are following developments in Gaza with grave concern.


    'The rise in rocket attacks on Israel since December 19, and yesterday's massive loss of life, make this a dangerous moment which should be of concern to the whole of the international community.


    'The UK supports an urgent ceasefire and immediate halt to all violence.'


    Mr Miliband said the deteriorating humanitarian situation was 'deeply disturbing', and the PM had spoken to his Israeli counterpart Ehud Olmert.


    'Israel must abide by its humanitarian obligations," Mr Miliband added. 'The UK supports the prompt and sufficient delivery of food, fuel and medicine into the Gaza Strip.'

    Mr Brown said he was ‘deeply concerned by continuing missile strikes from Gaza on Israel and by Israel’s response today.’



    He urged Gazan militants to cease all rocket attacks on Israel immediately and Israel to do everything in its power to avoid civilian casualties.



    The EU condemned the ‘disproportionate’ use of force and called for an immediate halt to air strikes and Palestinian attacks in and around Gaza. And the US urged Israel to avoid civilian casualties and called on Hamas to cease its missile attacks.



    Egypt summoned the Israeli ambassador in Cairo to express its condemnation of the strikes, saying it held Israel responsible for the dead and injured and calling for new efforts to restore the truce with Hamas, and the Arab League is to hold an emergency meeting today.

    Election time is near so this filthy dog is trying to show the zionist public he is not "soft" so as to not loose any votes against his opponent who is more thirsty for Palestinian's blood. The hindu extremists party did the same thing in Mumbai with their false flag for upcoming elections as did Bush. It seems like all you have to do is massacre lots of innocent Muslims if you want lots of votes these days.

    Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez Aal ash-Shaykh:

    "Indeed waging war against the weak Muslims in Palestine is (Israeli) terrorism and oppression.

    ...today the Muslim Ummah was passing through a severe phase which requires it to take a close look (at itself) so that it can become a single Ummah defending and protecting it's 'aqeedah
    ".


    ...


    http://www.fatwa-online.com/news/0020414.htm

    Shaykh Saalih ibn Fowzaan:

    "It is obligatory upon the Muslims to make supplication for their Muslim brothers and to assist them with wealth. To assist them with wealth and supplication, this is what is obligatory, and this is what will benefit them.

    ...

    http://www.fatwa-online.com/fataawa/.../0020406_1.htm

    Shaykh Ibn Baaz:

    "It has been confirmed to us by trustworthy and reliable witnesses that the Palestinian intifaadhah (uprising) and those who have stood forth in this are from the most dedicated Muslims there, and that their jihaad is (an) Islaamic (one). This is because they are oppressed by the Jews, and that which is obligatory upon them is to protect their religion and themselves and their families and children and to drive out their enemy from their land with all they are able to of strength."

    ...

    http://www.fatwa-online.com/fataawa/.../0020404_1.htm

    Shaykh Ibn Baaz:

    "Certainly, the Muslim(s) feel much pain and great sadness at the deteriorating situation in Palestine, with matters going from bad to worse, escalating in complexity as the days pass, such that it has reached where it has (today).

    ...and that which is worth mentioning here, is that the Palestinian issue is an Islaamic issue from the beginning (right through) to the end.
    "

    PLEASE NOTE: Terrorism is prohibited in Islaam, and these fataawa do not in any way or form imply it's permissibility or acceptance.

    Question:

    What can we do about the slaughter of Muslims in Palestine and around the world? What is our stance concerning the slaughter of Muslims in Palestine and other parts of the world that is happening right now, where houses are being destroyed, farms are being wrecked, children are being killed, the wounded are being detained in the streets, houses are being bombarded and people are being prevented by the Jews and others, from buying the food and drink that they need? What can I, as a Muslim, do?


    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    1- You have to make du’aa’, and recite du’a’ al-qunoot in your salaah (prayer).

    2- Collect charity and send it through trustworthy channels.

    3- Support the weak and oppressed in all ways, including the media and the internet.

    4- Get scholars, daa’iyahs, khateebs and writers to explain the oppression that is happening and the negligence on the part of the ummah, and to mobilize the ummah to defend the holy places.

    5- Check on one’s own intentions with regard to fighting for the sake of Allaah, and see whether he is applying the hadeeth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Whoever dies without having fought for the sake of Allaah or having had the intention of doing so, has died following one of the branches of hypocrisy.” (Saheeh Muslim, no. 3533)

    6- Pursuing all the means of building up material and moral strength, in preparation for meeting the enemy (in battle).

    7- Reminding oneself and others of the virtues of martyrdom for the sake of Allaah and studying the rulings on jihad, and not having an attachment to this world.

    8- Doing as much damage as possible to the enemies who are in a state of war with us, by boycotting their products, attacking them verbally and in writing to humiliate and annoy them, and to point out their kufr and shirk, and their insults to Allaah, His Messenger and the believers, publishing as much as possible in the audio-visual and print media about this serious topic whilst also connecting that to Islamic belief and the words of Allaah and His Messenger,

    We ask Allaah the Exalted and All-Powerful to support His religion and cause His word to prevail.

    Saudi cleric issues fatwa urging Muslims to avenge Gaza raids

    December 28, 2008

    A Saudi Web site on Sunday reported that a popular cleric has issued a fatwa urging Muslims to target Israeli interests everywhere, to avenge the attacks on the Gaza Strip.

    The site, Rasid, posts news about Saudi Arabia’s Shiite community and on Sunday said that Sheik Awadh al-Garni has issued a religious edict urging Muslims to strike anything that has a link to Israel, calling it a legitimate target for Muslims everywhere.

    Al-Garni, whose is popular in the kingdom, is not a member of the official religious establishment.

    Fatwas are not legally binding, and it is up to the individual Muslim to follow them.

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday also issued a religious decree to Muslims around the world, ordering them to defend Palestinians against Israel’s attacks on Gaza, state television said.
    "All Palestinian combatants and all the Islamic world’s pious people are obliged to defend the defenseless women, children and people in Gaza in any way possible. Whoever is killed in this legitimate defense is considered a martyr," state television quoted Khamenei as saying in a statement.
    Israel launched an unprecedented assault on the Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 280 people and sparking protests and condemnations throughout the Arab world.

    Many of Israel’s Western allies urged restraint, though the U.S. blamed Hamas for the fighting.

    In his statement on Sunday, Khamenei also criticized some Arab governments for their "encouraging silence" towards the Israel’s raids on Gaza.

    Hamas leaders go into hiding

    Meanwhile, Hamas’ political leaders in the Gaza Strip have gone into hiding in the wake of Israel’s operation on the coastal territory, fearing that they will once again be targeted in the attacks.

    In Damascus, Syria, Hamas’ top leader, Khaled Meshal, called on Palestinians to rekindle their fight against Israel and renew suicide bombings against Israeli targets. "This is the time for a third Intifada," he said.

    In a speech broadcast on local Gaza television, Hamas’ prime minister, Ismail Haniyeh, declared his movement would not be cowed. "We are stronger, and more determined, and have more will, and we will hold onto our rights even more than before," Haniyeh said.

    Abu Ubeida, spokesman for the organization’s military wing, the Iz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades vowed harsh retaliation: "The Israeli occupation needs to know that it has cast itself into the fire," he said.

    The Egyptian minister said a cease-fire would be the aim of a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Wednesday.

    Several Arab leaders have also proposed an Arab summit to respond to the attacks on Gaza but Aboul Gheit suggested that a summit could be some way off.

    "Priority is the Arab measures at the level of foreign ministers … then we can look at a later phase, but we don’t imagine moving without proper preparation for such a summit. First we have to look at the ceasefire measures," he said.

    The TV images of dead and wounded Gazans has inflamed Arab public opinion, and protests erupted in Arab Israeli villages, the West Bank and elsewhere in the Arab world.

    The campaign embarrassed moderate Arab regimes that have encouraged Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking and weakened Hamas’ rival, Abbas, who has ruled only the West Bank since Hamas was elelcted in power but forced to control only Gaza since June 2007.

    Abbas condemned the attacks on Saturday, but fearing violence could spiral out of control, his forces also broke up protests in the West Bank.

    The offensive risked opening new fronts, including unrest that could destabilize the West Bank and ignite possible rocket attacks by Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas on northern Israel.

    Obama on Gaza: ‘No Comment’

    December 27, 2008


    “There was no immediate comment on the Israeli air strikes on Gaza from Obama, who is vacationing with his family in Hawaii, or his staff.”

    This is how our incoming President has reacted to the worst attack on the Palestinian people in 20 years – by not reacting at all.


    The Bush White House, of course, has responded as we all know they would: Israel-has-the-right-to-defend itself, let the killing begin, etc., ad nauseum.


    And don’t expect much better from the Obama camp. Remember how he scolded the UN for daring to even discuss the Gaza situation?:


    We have to understand why Israel is forced to do this… Israel has the right to respond while seeking to minimize any impact on civilians. The Security Council should clearly and unequivocally condemn the rocket attacks… If it cannot bring itself to make these common sense points, I urge you to ensure that it does not speak at all.”

    With his silence – or, at least, his very delayed reaction – it seems clear that Obama is taking his own advice. Even as Israel takes the possibility of a new page in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict off the agenda, and sabotages all his brave talk about a renewed US diplomatic effort, the great “liberal” hope is apparently tongue-tied. And when he finally speaks, “progressives” should prepare for the worst: after all, this is someone who endorsed the Israeli re-invasion of Lebanon.


    The Israeli-Palestinian “peace process”? The Israelis, for their part, are having none of it – and neither is our future President.

    Interesting Comments I found on Aljazeera's English channel's website:

    The corrupt and criminal Israeli leaders have said they aspire to live in peace and not to provoke them into attacking Gaza. Governments which aspire to peace do not (1) use cluster bombs, (2) indiscriminately use missile strikes to kill innocent children, women and men bystanders, (3) carry out preemptive illegal assassinations of suspected opponents (4) illegally abduct, imprison and torture critics (5) blockade and cut electric power to struggling civilians (6) harass and humiliate Palestinians on a daily basis (7) forcibly retake the land and properties from Palestinian owners (7) prevent Palestinians from returning to their own land (8) withhold natural resources and money meant for Palestine (9) violate UN resolutions and humanitarian rights and (10) ignore overwhelming international condemnation. The Israeli government can wisely make amends or continue on its disastrous path and be held responsible for war crimes and forced to pay reparations and relinquish Palestine.

    If we analyse, Hamas itself was created by Israelis due to a manner of brute force. How? Hamas are group of Palestinian people who have seen their family members getting killed by the Zionist terrorists in front of their eyes. Hamas would have never evolved if the Zionists were of peaceful blood. Even the faithful Jews are against the Zionist terrorist regime. The USA govt and the UN are controlled by Zionist Israelis. The US economy is failing due to Wars against innocents being framed for nothing, and due to pumping of billions and trillions of dollars into a country which is good for nothing (Israel). Israel just wants to frame Hamas as terrorist and conquer the whole of Gaza strip.

    I propose that the UN should decide to form a strong police force aiming to guarantee law and order in Gaza.’ - Pelle, Stockholm, Sweden. Really? How can the UN do this without Israel’s permission and when Israel can bar UN members from entering Israel? On Dec 14 Richard Falk who is a professor of international law and the UN's special rapporteur on the Palestinian territories, was barred entry by Israel. He was leading a UN mission that had intended to visit the West Bank and Gaza to prepare a report on Israel's compliance with human rights standards and international humanitarian law. On Dec 14, in Tel Aviv air port, he was taken to a locked tiny room that smelled of urine and filth. It contained five other detainees and close to claustrophobia. He spent 15 hours so confined, in the miseries of prison life, including dirty sheets, inedible food and lights that were too bright.

    Alladin, you have been duped and you have to remove the blinker to see the truth. Seth Freedman in his article “Remove The Blinkers and See the Truth” says: “The fact that the Israeli regime has not beheaded me for my dissent is ample proof that all is well in our little corner of the Middle East. Which, of course, it isn't, despite the best efforts of Israel's squadron of cheerleaders to convince the world otherwise. Although I am a relative newcomer to Israel's Mediterranean shores, the amount of exposure I have had during my four-year sojourn in the Holy Land to the daily humiliation and oppression being meted out to the Palestinians is more than most armchair critics will see in a lifetime. I should know – I was one of them myself for my first 24 years on the planet, and am all too aware how easy it is to be duped by second- or third-hand reporting from the front lines, whether through the media or via friends and family giving their skewed take from inside Israel's borders."

    Aladdin: “The root cause for the ME problem is religion as you know” – No it isn’t. The root cause is political Zionism’s desire to impose “Jewish” ethnic sovereignty over Palestine. In other words their aim being to make a homeland out of Palestine for people from foreign lands whilst disregarding the rights and aspirations of the indigenous population is the problem. The religion of Judaism was co-opted by the mainly secular Zionists to give their enterprise some sort of spurious legitimacy. To answer your Q1: The Zionists of course, who else? And Q2: They will never willingly abandon their enterprise, they will need to be compelled to do it and the US and or an awakening to morality of diaspora “Jews” holds the key to this.

    Statement released by

    The Permanent Committee for Islaamic Research and Verdicts : on the Palestinian crisis

    The Permanent Committee for Islaamic Research and Verdicts in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has followed – with all sorrow and pain- what has occurred, and is still going on against our Muslim brethren in Palestine – and specifically in Gaza. That which is [actions] of oppression, and killing of children, and women and old people! And [it is] transgression on that which is sacred [innocent], and the destruction of infrastructure and institutions, and the terrorizing of innocent people. And there is no doubt that this is a crime and oppression on the rights of the Palestinian nation.

    And at this sorrowful event; it is an obligation on the Muslims to be with their Palestinian brethren, and to help and aid them, and to make an effort to lift the oppression against them – through any means which is of their reach – so as to actualize the Islamic bond, and the ties of 'Eeman.

    Allaah The Exalted said: "The believers are indeed brothers [in Islâmic religion]."(Al-Hujuraat: 10)

    And He The Most Mighty, The Most Majestic said: "The believers, men and women, are Auliyâ' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another…"(At-Tawba : 71)

    And The Prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said: "The believer to another believer is like the structure [like a wall] ; each part strengthens the other,' and then he co-enjoined his fingers."(Agreed upon)

    And he (may Allaah's blessings and good mention be upon him) also said: "The example of the believers in their relationship, and their love, and their having mercy upon each other ; is like the example of one body part to the rest of the body; if one part is affected then the whole body complains of fever and pain."(Agreed upon)

    And he (may Allaah's blessings and good mention be upon him) also said: "The Muslim is the brother of another Muslim; he does not oppress him, nor does he deceive him, nor does he give him up to the enemy, nor does he look down on him."(Narrated by Muslim)

    And help comprises of many things –according to the ability, and depending on the situations – whether it is intellectually or physical [things], or whether it is from the general Muslims through wealth, and food, and medicine, and clothing, and other things. Or whether it is from the Islamic Arab nations through making it easy and possible that the aid reaches them, and by taking a sincere position in regards to their [the Palestinian Muslims] matter, and by supporting their case in the gatherings, and seminars, and the international conferences: And all of these are from the ways of co-operation upon good and piety – which is something that is ordered- in the statement of The Exalted :

    "Help you one another in virtue, righteousness and piety…"(Al-Maaida : 2)

    And also from those ways is: to direct sincere advice to them [the Muslims in Palestine], and to direct them to that which is of good and of benefit to them. And from the greatest of those is to make du'aa for them -at all times – so that their tribulation is lifted, and their affliction is raised, and that their situation is rectified, and that their statements and actions become good.

    Upon this, we also advise our Muslim brethren in Palestine to have fear of Allaah – The Exalted- and to return to Him, just as we advise them to be united; upon the truth, and to leave off divisions and splitting up, and not to give a chance to the enemy – who has taken advantage of it – and will continue to use it in enmity and oppression.

    And we also encourage and emphasize our brethren to take the causes which will lead to lifting the oppression directed at their land – while having complete sincerity to Allaah The Exalted – in [those and all other] actions, and to seek His pleasure, and to seek His assistance – through righteous actions, and prayers, and consulting the scholars and people of wisdom; in all their matters – indeed that is a way of being facilitated [to that which is good] and establishment.

    Just as we call on to the intellectuals in the world and the international meetings; to have an open look at this catastrophe – with a look of insight, intellect, and equality – so that the Palestinian community can be given its rights. And so that the oppression be lifted from it: such that they live in a honourable life. And at the same time we thank all -the nations and individuals- who have initiated in aiding and helping them.

    We ask Allaah by His Beautiful Names and His Lofty Attributes; that He lifts the despair on this Ummah, and that He strengthens its religion, and to raise its statement, and to aid His allies, and to disgrace His enemies -and to return back their plots against themselves- and to save the Muslims from their evil, Indeed He is the Patron, and the One who is Most Able of all that. And may His blessings and good mention be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and also his family and his companions and those who follow them upon good; upto the Last Day.
    His eminence; the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia,

    UN: "Gaza Health Services on Brink of Collapse"


    The UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has said the health services in Gaza are on the "brink of collapse."


    "We are short of rooms and supplies, we are up to our necks," said a surgeon at Gaza's main Al-Shifa Hospital. Added the doctor, "The buildings are falling on the heads of the patients."

    In addition to the urgent medical needs for the victims, the short supply of food is another worry for those trying to survive.


    Read in detail about Islamic Relief's aid efforts in Gaza thus far.


    Islamic Relief's aid worker on the ground, Hatem Shurrab, who is writing about the situation for BBC News, has said, "I've met families who are resorting to boiling weeds that they've dug out from the ground in order to feed their families."
    (Read the latest entries on the BBC News website of an Islamic Relief aid worker sharing first-hand accounts of the situation on the ground in Gaza and IR's relief efforts.)



    "What makes the food situation even worse is that Gazans were already facing difficulties with food over the last year - now they are on the brink," said Shurrab.


    80% of the 1.5 milion Gazans depend on international humanitarian assistance.
    Please donate now to provide urgently needed aid.


    Islamic Relief responded immediately after the crisis, delivering vital medicines and medical supplies to hospitals in Gaza just 6 hours after the crisis began.
    In addition to the medical aid, Islamic Relief is also providing food aid, with a recent delivery of four trucks filled with food supplies. Al-Shifa Hospital has been one of the recipients of this aid. (Click here to see distribution photos)


    Islamic Relief has launched an emergency multi-million dollar appeal to help the victims and is asking for urgent and repeated support. Islamic Relief has been able to bring in aid supplies to Gaza through it’s partnership with the UN’s World Health Organization.
    Your support has helped save lives. The people of Gaza are still in desperate need, please continue your help.


    Islamic Relief’s Shurrab: "When we go out and assess what is needed you can see that the people are beyond despair. Food provided by Islamic Relief, the UN and other agencies is beginning to run out in people's homes. The heads of households are despairing at the thought of how to feed their children. "

    Please act now and donate generously. The people of Gaza need you.
