The biased coverage and double standards that dictate how the violence and atrocities happening in the middle east are covered.
What should be the punishment for someone who shot two unarmed women waving a white flag with children sitting on the ground nearby?
The death penalty? Life imprisonment? Long prison sentence?
The correct answer is None of the Above. You see, the murderer was an israeli and the victims were Palestinian women. So, the best you can get is 45 days prison. Harsh. The brave israeli murderer should appeal and have his sentence reduced. Maybe a decoration and a promotion will be forthcoming for the brave hero like his fellow israeli murderers/colleagues. The israeli sense of justice is as perverted as its zionist adherents.

The debunking of the absolutely incorrect assertion that Gaza Blockade is legal. Human Right Crimes of the worst kind in the form of Collective Punishment. Who were the members of the commission? The answer might just shock you. If you answered neutral technocrats/experts/judges, sorry, you answered incorrectly. Watch the video and learn the identity of the four members of the commission.
“We find it necessary to dispel any impression that subsequent developments have rendered any part of the mission’s report unsubstantiated, erroneous or inaccurate. Had we given in to pressures from any quarter to sanitize our conclusions, we would be doing a serious injustice to the hundreds of innocent civilians killed during the Gaza conflict, the thousands injured, and the hundreds of thousands whose lives continue to be deeply affected by the conflict and the blockade.”
—The three co-panelists (Hina Jilani of Pakistan, Desmond Travers of Ireland, and Christine Chinkin of Britain) of the U.N. probe into the 2008-2009 Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip are rejecting the retraction by their chair, Judge Richard Goldstone, of the report’s key finding.
The Ukraine-based Al Raed Press said that Mr. Abu Sisi is the head of operations at the only power station in the Gaza Strip and was on a visit to Ukraine when he disappeared during a train journey on 18 February. Mrs. Abu Sisi accused Mossad of kidnapping her husband because she knows that all Palestinians are targeted by the Israelis. She stressed that her husband is a governmental employee in Gaza but is not involved in any political activities and is not a member of any political party or movement.
israel: the epitome of everything illegal. Laws, morals, sanctity of human life — all meaningless to israel. The illegal actions of an illegal and immoral entity. But there is one law which even they can’t ignore or circumvent. The Law of Reckoning on the Day of Judgment.

UN Human Rights council has found “clear evidence” of israel’s crimes in the flotilla massacre. Needless to say, israel’s biggest supporter United States of America yet again voted against the report & resolution (Partners in murder!).
The inquiry said Israel broke international humanitarian and human rights law in the incident, and found “clear evidence to support prosecutions” for crimes including “willful killing; torture or inhuman treatment; willfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health.”Of the nine fatalities in the incident, the probe said that six were victims of actions “consistent with … summary execution.”
The report reveals that Dogan, the 19-year-old US citizen of Turkish descent, was filming with a small video camera on the top deck of the Mavi Marmara when he was shot twice in the head, once in the back and in the left leg and foot and that he was shot in the face at point blank range while lying on the ground.
The report says Dogan had apparently been “lying on the deck in a conscious or semi-conscious, state for some time” before being shot in his face.
The forensic evidence that establishes that fact is “tattooing around the wound in his face,” indicating that the shot was “delivered at point blank range.” The report describes the forensic evidence as showing that “the trajectory of the wound, from bottom to top, together with a vital abrasion to the left shoulder that could be consistent with the bullet exit point, is compatible with the shot being received while he was lying on the ground on his back.”
Based on both “forensic and firearm evidence,” the fact-finding panel concluded that Dogan’s killing and that of five Turkish citizens by the Israeli troops on the Mavi Marmari May 31 “can be characterized as extra-legal, arbitrary and summary executions.”
Although the report’s revelations and conclusions about the killing of Dogan and the five other victims were widely reported in the Turkish media last week, not a single story on the report has appeared in US news media.
The administration has made it clear through its inaction and its explicit public posture that it has no intention of pressing the issue of the murder of a US citizen in cold blood by Israeli commandos.
The account, provided by the OHCHR of the events on board the Mavi Marmara on its way to help break the economic siege of Gaza May 31 of this year, refutes the version of events aggressively pushed by the Israeli military and supports the testimony of passengers on board.
Contrary to Israeli claims that one or more Israeli troops were wounded by firearms, the report says no medical evidence of a gunshot wound to an Israeli soldier was found.
The fact-finding mission was chaired by Judge Karl T. Hudson-Phillips, Q.C., retired judge of the International Criminal Court and former attorney general of Trinidad and Tobago, and included Sir Desmond de Silva, Q.C. of the United Kingdom, former chief prosecutor of the United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone and Ms. Mary Shanthi Dairiam of Malaysia, founding member of the board of directors of the International Women’s Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific.
Why is there so much hatred against USA? Do they hate Americans for their freedoms and prosperity. No, it is because of Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine …
israel’s holocaust in GAZA, the recent attack on the aid flotilla,… Not only does israel still enjoy USA’s political and policy support in UN and in all other forums, the US also FUNDS and ARMS israel to the teeth. The same money and weapons which are used to kill innocent men, women and children in the worst exhibitions of shameless inhumane acts of terror. This inspite of the fact that israel humiliates US and treats it as its vassal (See America’s Humiliation).
In the aftermath of the flotilla murders, what is the US going to turn around and do?
Israel asked U.S. to increase weapons supply, Haaretz learns
The US is going to supply huge caches of munitions for the israeli air force. JDAM bombs. The same bombs that were used to perpetrate the holocausts in Lebanon and Gaza and will surely be used in the future for further atrocities. Inspite of US struggling under economic pressures, US will also further increase its emergency stores based in israel. To the tune of $1.2 Billion. The stores include rockets, ammos, armored vehicles. The huge caches of munitions and weapons being stored by israel are an indication that israel is gearing up for a PROLONGED WAR. Murder and mayhem planned to continue for days, weeks, months … All of it being financed by US dollars and US manufactured and supplied weapons.
The question shouldn’t be “Why do they hate US?” It should be “Why wouldn’t they hate US?”
“What saddens me today is that any Jew who speaks out with an independent voice especially with the conduct of the State of Israel, is regarded as a self-hating Jew … Why should someone be made to choose between being a Jew and having a conscience?”
— Albie Sachs, retired South African supreme court justice and member of the Jewish community, on the hate campaign unleashed by Zionists on Richard Goldstone
