The Real Enemy

25-07-2006 16:03

At present, many writers in the alternative media are feeling extremely angry, depressed and frustrated at what is happening in Palestine and Lebanon. Despite hundreds of editorials and essays eloquently decrying Israeli aggression and provocation and spelling out the very obvious reason for the long-standing violence in the Middle East, Israel continues its murderous rampage, killing almost 70 Lebanese civilians yesterday. Yesterday's attacks involved Israeli bombing of entire Lebanese villages, such as Srifa in the south west of Lebanon where Israeli F-16 jets, supplied free of charge by the US government, destroyed 15 houses, killed at least 20, and wounded at least 30, men women, young and old alike. The truly horrifying thing however is that the inhabitants of the villages were fleeing on the orders of the Israeli government itself, yet as the villagers attempted to leave in their cars and vans, they were targeted by Israeli jets and blown to pieces...

Israeli Aggression on Lebanon: What kind of WMD causes this damage?

25-07-2006 15:55

Beirut 6/21/06: I left the office early last night; at midnight. There was only one devastating picture yesterday: that of two people who were killed in air strikes on Akkar, (the poorer area) in the north, late Wednesday night. Both corps were black, both were dismembered, both were "weird". I don't think it matters anymore to try to prove that Israel is using unconventional, forbidden weapons .. that would only prove that it should have used "allowed" weapons. Who cares, people are dying anyway. And whatever weapons are being used, the pollution they're creating will kill the survivors from cancer later...........

Every civilian death is a tragedy, but some are more tragic than others.

24-07-2006 19:30

... the bigger picture ...
A leading zionist legal expert muses on special and chosen victims:
"These differences and others are conflated within the increasingly meaningless word "civilian" — a word that carried great significance when uniformed armies fought other uniformed armies on battlefields far from civilian population centers. Today this same word equates the truly innocent with guilty accessories to terrorism."

Israel and International Law

24-07-2006 15:35

The use of military force without approval of the UN Security Council is prohibited in international law.. Humanitarian international law is in effect during an armed conflict..Israel's conduct can be branded as illegal before international and national courts, above all before the world public. The land can also be driven into political isolation for ignoring international law standards.

The Crime of Lebanon and Palestine - Are Iran and Syria Next?

24-07-2006 15:16

By any interpretation of international law, Israel today is committing massive and egregious war crimes and crimes against humanity against the defenseless people of Palestine and Lebanon. It's doing it with the full support and encouragement of the US and willful compliance of the West, most of the Arab world, the UN and the dominant corporate media worldwide acting as cheerleaders for the mass killing, crippling destruction, and immiseration of innocent civilians in Lebanon and the Palestinian Occupied Territories. Israel falsely claims its duel assaults are in response to Hamas' capture of an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier near Kerem Shalom crossing, southeast of Rafah, on June 25 and Hezbollah's cross-border incursion on July 12, killing eight IDF soldiers in the exchange that followed and taking two others prisoner.

London demo in solidarity with Lebanese and Palestinians.

23-07-2006 15:48

Singing in the rain.
Considering the short notice (less than one week) the demo was impressively large. Thousands came from all over the country to enjoy the heat-wave in Britain’s most polluted city and protest about the slaughter in Lebanon. Fortunately for everyone the weatherman had lied and it rained from early on in the demo till just before the end. Having been cooked here for over a week it has to be said that the rain was lovely.

Difficult to say how many came there were other regional mobilizations around the country. Definitely over ten thousand.
