Stop the new Holocaust being perpetrated by the Zionist army of occupation!

People of all creeds, age, race or gender, fellow human beings: Show at least some semblance of humanity and help the trapped people of Gaza before it is too late! Demonstrate against the Israeli massacres at its embassies around the world, boycott Israeli products for there can be no divine right to commit genocide transferred over the generations that have perished in the first Holocaust!

Talking of war crimes and proportionality, with more than 1330 Palestinians killed and 20000 homes destroyed by the israeli army http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2009/01/200912574445581696.html during its three-week Gaza massacre, against a total of 13 Israelis killed in the process, the rule of thumb shows a slighty higher death toll than even the reprisals enacted by the Nazi army during WW2...

Disengagement and the Frontiers of Zionism

by Darryl Li

“Disengagement” is, of course, the name Israel gave its 2005 removal of colonies and military bases from the Gaza Strip. But rather than a one-time abandonment of control, disengagement is better understood as an ongoing process of controlled abandonment, by which Israel is severing the ties forged with Gaza over 40 years of domination without allowing any viable alternatives to emerge, all while leaving the international donor community to subsidize what remains. The effect is to treat the Strip as an animal pen whose denizens cannot be domesticated and so must be quarantined. Disengagement is a form of rule that sets as its goal neither justice nor even stability, but rather survival -- as we are reminded by every guarantee that an undefined “humanitarian crisis” will be avoided.

p.s. Yet, with over a thousand Palestinian victims, of which more than half are civilians, "survival" has suddenly become a deadly conundrum because the Zionist army of occupation is continuing to commit despicable war crimes, such as "shooting at fleeing Gazans" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7828536.stm, preventing medical supplies from reaching those in desperate need (children, in particular!), targeting mosques, shelters, schools http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7814054.stm as its rules of engagement blatantly disregard issues of "proportionality" or the need to differentiate "civilians" from "combatants" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7811386.stm

Surely though, no Israeli will ever have to face the UN War Crimes Tribunal for what they are doing in Gaza today, or will they?

Free Palestine now!

Enough is enough! This relentless and murderous aggression must be stopped now! Whether "chosen" or merely self-appointed representatives of some orthodox religious dogma NOBODY can justify, in this day and age, the collective punishment of 1,5 million people – caged in the land that was taken from them in 1948 – ignoring the rest of the world's timid and politically correct protests simply because their undeclared nuclear weapons and unquestionable protection offered by the most powerful cowboy in the world, wilfully aiding and abetting these indiscriminate killings, afords them to do so! If there was ever any need to be more specific, it is the very same cowboy that repudiated the Kyoto Agreement, that is eager to tear up the ballistic missile agreements, that shuns the International Criminal Court and the Geneva Conventions in its so-called War on Terror, that makes a mockery of the most basic human rights at Guantánamo and still has the nerve to claim it is the biggest democracy in the world... SHAME on all those who keep quiet because they think it is not their problem or because they are too affraid to say anything that would attract knee-jerk accusations of antisemitism – the only accusation where you are a priori guilty as charged and forced to prove your innocence! Is this http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7828577.stm your problem or not?
