The illegal war on Gaza – 27th December

Posted on

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of the illegal war on Gaza on 27th December 2008.

Israel carried out a surprise air strike against the Gaza Strip on 27th December 2008. Although Israel’s stated aim was to stop the measly rocket attacks by Hamas by attacking what they claim are the military targets, police stations and Hamas government buildings.

The reality however is that Israel is a bully and in comparison to the huge nuclear arsenal it posses; the action of Israel can only amount to bullying. The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. All borders are controlled and blocked by the Israeli’s and the Egyptians. The three-week war on Gaza resulted in over 1400 Palestinian deaths, of whom most were children and women, in comparison to 13 Israeli deaths, of whom most were soldiers.

But of course we heard the normal victim story from the Zionists that they are the victims of rocks and how they tried their best to target only Hamas controlled areas and how Hamas is using civilians as human shields. Israel went on to use white phosphorus which is an illegal substance under international law.

The reality is that Israel used the measly attacks by Hamas, who in turn where firing as a result of constant harassing by the Israeli’s to attack the Gaza Strip. A war and occupation that was meticulously carried out is not the affect of a reaction but a pre-planned attacked to cower the people of Gaza to accept its illegal occupation of Palestine.

My problem as always has been how the freedom loving, democracy fighting West always turns a blind eye to the blatant crimes committed by the Zionists. How can anyone in their right mind trust and have faith in the Politics of the West. Do not get me wrong, the Arab and the Muslim world is just as much to blame as they stood in silence whilst the genocide occurred for the whole world to watch on prime time TV.

    […] There has been a most serious development that the Indian National Security Adviser (NSA) Shiv Shankar Menon falsely stated at the Asian security conference currently being held in Singapore, that it is evident that sections of the community of analysts in other countries have started questioning the security of India’s nuclear arsenal should India be unable to reverse the successes of the Maoists. The NSA has explained why the Maoists do not pose a threat to India’s nuclear arsenal. It is a purely rural-based insurgency with very little support in the urban areas. It is purely an Indian movement with an Indian agenda and not a global movement with a global agenda. He further stated that since Maoists’ movement recruits mainly from the semi-literate or illiterate tribal communities, the Internet holds no attraction for them. It has not shown much interest in typical terrorist operations like aviation or maritime terrorism. It is old insurgency still inspired and influenced by Mao’s Yenan model and not new insurgency. Though Mr. Menon’s speech sounds “no real threat” from the Maoists but the reality speaks otherwise. It has been repeatedly brought to the limelight the issue of global threat posed by Maoists. This threat maximized specially due to the ability of these forces to exploit their current power to grab Nukes, Uranium and lot more from the potential Nuclear Installations located in the areas under the control of these insurgents. The recent incidents of Uranium theft in India are not hidden from the eyes of the world community. Recent radioactive contamination in Delhi due to exposure to Cobalt also raised huge alarms and caught UN’s attention that has formed a commission to probe this matter. These facts are enough to prove the lethality of Maoists/Naxals as during the first five months of 2010, six States have suffered fatalities in the security forces at the hands of Maoists-Chattisgarh (103 ), West Bengal (32),Orissa (17), Jharkand (10), Bihar (6), and Maharashtra(2). The same six States suffered fatalities in 2009 too—– Chattisgarh ( 121), Jharkand (67), Maharashtra ( 52), Orissa (32), Bihar (25 ), and West Bengal (15). While the ground situation has remained as serious in Chattisgarh as it was in 2009, it has Also you can take a look at this related read: […]
