We have heard the Palestinian side of the story, as you can see from the images below:

Now, let's see the other side of the story, shall we?

The carnage, the destruction, the annihilation, the pain, and the horror caused by qassam rockets:

The answers to the biased news coverage are all in this video:
Propaganda & Promised Land:

I have yet to come across a video that tells it like it is concerning the media as this video does. Please take eight minutes of your time and watch: The other side of the story!

Ah, excellent juxtaposition. If i may say so, it is ... striking !

This said, any explosive specialist looking at most of the alleged qassam impacts in this pictures, would have a hard time not to laugh, because they are obvious FABRICATIONS. Just take an old children built rocket from their science class, and pluck into a hole, take a picture and VOILA, you can pretend this is an "attack"

But worse, even those "Qassam" rocket impacts who seem plausible on these pictures: these pictures where provided by zionists, it would be utterly naive to believe even the first letter of their first word! They are specialist of false flag operations, and i contend, without the shred of a doubt, that israeli psy-op specialists are sending themselves rockets pretending they are from Gazans. This is a disgrace.

Tzipi Livni's father and mother, both were terrorists and both were specialists in false flag operations.

And then their damned propaganda operations use these false flag operations, these ridiculously small fabricated events, to obfuscate the genocide against Palestinians as we see it in the above pictures. Just one example:

A local US California newspaper, part of a larger press group of course, on yesterday's front page, top of page, large letterings:

"Hamas Fires rockets deep into Israel"
and the article is subtitled:
"Four Israelis are killed as militants continue attacks"

So there you have it, this disgrace should be targeted with counter reactions.

Your photo essay says it all, Nahida. We do not need to yell insults at the Israelis, accuse them of lies, or promote any antisemitism... all we need to do is show the photos, get people to look at the photos. Then decide what is just. Can the photos of the rockets that fell in Israel be verified? I think it would be very good to show that these are authentic, show the disparity between the fire power of Hamas and the Israeli military.

Thank you ellen, it is true that all we need is to show the pictures, for they tell the truth better than any words

All the picture of "qassam" rockets are from zionist sources, therefore, I cannot verify

So what have the Palestinians got to complain about?

To portray this as a conflict between equals requires some imagination

Wednesday, 31 December 2008

statements from Israeli and US politicians, and try to match them with the pictures of devastation, there seems to be only one explanation. They must have one of those conditions, called something like "Visual-Carnage-Responsibility-Back-To-Front-Upside-Down-Massacre-Disorder".

For example, Condoleezza Rice, having observed that more than 300 Gazans were dead, said: "We are deeply concerned about the escalating violence. We strongly condemn the attacks on Israel and hold Hamas responsible."

Someone should ask her to comment on teenage knife-crime, to see if she'd say: "I strongly condemn the people who've been stabbed, and until they abandon their practice of wandering around clutching their sides and bleeding, there is no hope for peace."

The Israeli government suffers terribly from this confusion. They probably have adverts on Israeli television in which a man falls off a ladder and screams, "Eeeeugh", then a voice says, "Have you caused an accident at work in the last 12 months?" and the bloke who pushed him gets £3,000.

The gap between the might of Israel's F-16 bombers and Apache helicopters, and the Palestinians' catapulty thing is so ridiculous that to try and portray the situation as between two equal sides requires the imagination of a children's story writer.

The reporter on News at Ten said the rockets "may be ineffective, but they ARE symbolic." So they might not have weapons but they have got symbolism, the canny brutes.

It's no wonder the Israeli Air Force had to demolish a few housing estates, otherwise Hamas might have tried to mock Israel through a performance of expressive dance.

The rockets may be unable to to kill on the scale of the Israeli Air Force, said one spokesman, but they are "intended to kill".

Maybe he went on: "And we have evidence that Hamas supporters have dreams, and that in these dreams bad things happen to Israeli citizens, they burst, or turn into cactus, or run through Woolworths naked, so it's not important whether it can happen, what matters is that they WANT it to happen, so we blew up their university."

Or there's the outrage that Hamas has been supported by Iran. Well that's just breaking the rules. Because say what you will about the Israelis, they get no arms supplies or funding or political support from a country that's more powerful than them, they just go their own way and make all their weapons in an arts and crafts workshop in Jerusalem.

But mostly the Israelis justify themselves with a disappointing lack of imagination, such as the line that they had to destroy an ambulance because Hamas cynically put their weapons inside ambulances.

They should be more creative, and say Hamas were planning to aim the flashing blue light at Israeli epileptics in an attempt to make them go into a fit, get dizzy and wander off into Syria where they would be captured.

But they prefer a direct approach, such as the statement from Ofer Schmerling, an Israeli Civil Defence official who said on al-Jazeera, "I shall play music and celebrate what the Israeli Air Force is doing."

Maybe they could turn it into a huge nationalfestival, with decorations and mince pies and shops playing "I Wish We Could Bomb Gaza Every Day".

In a similar tone Dov Weisglas, Ariel Sharon's chief of staff, referred to the siege of Gaza that preceded this bombing, a siege in which the Israelis prevented the population from receiving essential supplies of food, medicine, electricity and water, by saying, "We put them on a diet."

It's the arrogance of the East End gangster, so it wouldn't be out of character if the Israeli Prime Minister's press conference began: "Oh dear or dear. It looks like those Palestinians have had a little, er, accident. All their buildings have been knocked down – they want to be more careful, hee hee."

And almost certainly one of the reasons this is happening now is because the government wants to appear hard as it wants to win an election. Maybe with typical Israeli frankness they'll show a party political broadcast in which Ehud Olmert says, "This is why I think you should vote for me", then shows film of Gaza and yells: "Wa-hey, that bloke in the corner is on FIRE."

And Condoleezza Rice and her colleagues, and the specially appointed Middle East Peace Envoy, could then all shake their heads and say: "Disgraceful. The way he's flapping around like that could cause someone to have a nasty accident

Israel's onslaught on Gaza is a crime that cannot succeed

The US-backed attempt to bring Hamas to heel by overwhelming force is in fact more likely to boost the movement's appeal

Seumas Milne

The Guardian, Tuesday 30 December 2008

Quote: "During the last seven years, 14 Israelis have been killed by mostly homemade rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, while more than 5,000 Palestinians were killed by Israel with some of the most advanced US-supplied armaments in the world. And while no rockets are fired from the West Bank, 45 Palestinians have died there at Israel's hands this year alone. The issue is of course not just the vast disparity in weapons and power, but that one side is the occupier, the other the occupied."
