Who broke the Gaza Truce? (A must read, very detailed)

Here is some information about Gaza which is being ignored by the North American media. It was Israel who broke the Gaza truce. Hamas offered to extend the truce.  We are indebted to Karin Brothers for the below summary.

Recent headlines 1) blame Hamas for the breakdown of the truce and its refusal to renew it and 2)  claim that “tensions are rising” with the home made Hamas rockets (that haven’t killed one Israeli in this ceasefire!) and 3) seem to justify the Israeli line that it is “losing patience” with Hamas their supposed right to eliminate it.

Reality check: A brief sampler on the Gaza truce:

June 19, 2008: Hamas and Israel agree to six month truce  …
Nov. 2: Israeli forces kill 4 Gazans in missile strike and incursion, blocking ambulances from wounded
Nov. 4 2008: Israel carries out various incursions in Gaza supported by missile strikes, killing one and wounding three, plus razing land; Israeli forces also kill six and wound five Hamas members, breaking “truce“;
Nov. 5: Israel illegally and criminally seals off Gaza’s exits and entrances, including from humanitarian food and medical aid needed by 750,000 malnourished [This is a war crime/crime against humanity under international law]
Nov. 14: Israeli air strike injures 2
Nov. 15th Hamas sends 16 rockets, sending 18 Israelis to hospital with “shock and mild injuries.”
Nov. 16: Israeli forces kill 4
Nov. 17th Israeli attack wounds 2
Nov. 18th Israeli tanks and armoured bulldozer incursion into Gaza, plus mock air raids over Gaza
Israel kills a Palestinian patient who refuses medical extortion
Nov. 28:  Israeli incursion harrasses Gazans
Nov. 30th Israeli incursion levels area of Gaza Strip
{continuing crisis with almost no access to drinkable water, shortage of bread, humanitarian aid, journalists and UN blocked from entry, etc. Sick refused medical help)
Dec. 18th Air strikes in Gaza kill Gaza civilian, activist wounded
Dec. 20:Israeli attack kills resistor
Israel is announcing that is considers it has the right to eliminate Hamas and is clearly testing the waters with this pre-announcement of a major invasion. People should be up in arms about these Israeli announcements, which could stop such an invasion. I believe that your coverage, making Hamas appear guilty of its modest efforts to defend itself , lends support to Israel and makes your paper guilty of complicity in any attack on Gaza..

GENOCIDAL SETTLERS

GENOCIDAL SETTLERS

Genocidal settlers

Religious fanaticism in Israel may not be a mainstream media topic, but it is a mainstream Israeli ideology, writes Khalid Amayreh in the West Bank


When the Israeli High Court recently ordered Jewish squatters to leave an Arab house they had illegally seized in Al-Khalil (Hebron) a few years ago, settlers and their supporters converged at the contentious site, vowing a showdown with the Israeli army and police.

Among the settler leaders arriving at the site, apparently to incite the squatters to resist evacuation, was Daniela Weise, a charismatic preacher of blood and fire against the Palestinian community in Israel-Palestine, demanding that they be enslaved, expelled or exterminated outright.

Weise didn’t content herself with invoking the usual mantras, such as “God gave us this land,” and “We are only reclaiming our country.” She quoted heavily from the Old Testament, telling hundreds of Jewish fanatics that it was a mitzvah (good religious deed) to attack Arabs, even murder them, and damage their property, because “their lives have no sanctity and their property belongs to us.”

“The Bible shows us the way as to how we should be dealing with the Arabs. The Bible can’t be wrong,” he said.

Weise didn’t use the word “genocide”, but everyone that listened to her understood that this was what she meant.

THE CHANUKAH MASSACRE

THE CHANUKAH MASSACRE

Image by Abonoon

Today is not an ordinary Shabbat in Israel…. it is the Shabbat of Chanukah. It is also a new month on the Hebrew calendar. A time to celebrate….

BUT…. Israel decided to wage war against the people of Palestine instead. An area where one and a half million people are literally being held hostage by the zionist regeme is being bombed as I write this. Just this morning the infamous war criminal, now President of Israel, said in an interview that “Israel will take all steps demanded of it in order to stop the rocket fire,” he told the London-based newspaper Asharq al-Awsat, adding that “We will not go into Gaza. There are other ways. We didn’t leave Gaza in order go back.” Can we expect anything but lies from a war criminal? The interview can be read HERE.

DesertPeace and Associates unconditionally condemns the State of Israel for its present actions and calls on all world leaders to join us in this condemnation.

This madness must be stopped now.

Assalaamu’alaykum, sahabats sekalian

Gaza oh Gaza

Anda sekalian tentu sudah melihat kebiadaban Israel hari ini. Seratus lima puluh lima (jumlahnya bertambah terus) saudara kita di Gaza –yang selama 1,5 tahun ini dipaksa lapar dan sakit tanpa obat oleh blokade Israel– pagi tadi dibantai dengan 30 rudal Israel. Tubuh-tubuh kami di Damaskus yang jaraknya hanya 60km dari Palestina, bergetar keras, bukan karena musim dingin yang sedang mendaki ke puncaknya, tetapi karena amarah atas kebiadaban Zionis Israel.

Di Aljazeera, di Almanar, di AFP dan Reuters, kami menyaksikan puluhan saudara-saudara kita menghadapi Sakaratul Maut sambil bersusah payah mengangkat tangan ke atas sambil menggumamkan kalimat tauhid

International Witnesses speak out from Gaza

Posted by musliminsuffer on December 28, 2008

bismi-lLahi-rRahmani-rRahiem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

=== News Update ===

from Ewa Jasiewicz (freelance) <freelance@mailworks.org>

Please fwd widely: For Immediate Release

International Witnesses speak out from Gaza

27th December 2008, Gaza, Palestine – Human Rights Defenders from Lebanon, the UK, Poland, Canada, Spain, Italy and Australia are present in Gaza and are witnessing and documenting the current Israeli
attacks on Gaza.

Due to Israel’s policy of denying access to international media, human rights defenders and aid agencies to the Occupied Gaza Strip, many of these Human Rights Defenders arrived in Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement’s boats. FGM boats have broken Israel’s siege of Gaza five times in the past four months.

“At the time of the attacks I was on Omar Mukhtar street and witnessed a last rocket hit the street 150 meters away where crowds had already gathered to try to extract the dead bodies. Ambulances, trucks, cars – anything that can move is bringing injured to the hospitals. Hospitals have had to evacuate sick patients to make room for the injured. I have been told that there is not enough room in the morgues for the bodies and that there is a great lack of blood in the bloodbanks. I have just learned that among the civilians killed today was the mother of my good friends in Jabalya camp.” – Eva Bartlett (Canada) International Solidarity Movement

What’s wrong with America?


By Paul J. Balles

27 December 2008

Paul J. Balles compares American’s self-perception with the world’s perception of America. He argues that most Americans need to become better informed Americans, that informed Americans need to waken most Americans and that all Americans need to respect what the rest of the world likes and dislikes about America.

What most Americans dislike about America:

The recent American election results revealed which issues the public is concerned about. Their election of Barack Obama as president along with a Democratic majority in the Congress provided a mandate for the US government to address these issues. These were raised and debated, indicating the voting public’s concerns.

  • Allowing unrestricted searches and seizures violating the US Constitution
  • Squandering the nation’s wealth on weaponry
  • Funding wars while US taxpayers lose jobs, homes, education and health care
  • Fighting wars for foreign gas and oil while ignoring alternative energy development
  • Hundreds of thousands of unforgivable job losses
  • Wild inexcusable market speculation
  • Unnecessary inflation
  • Continued support for military occupation of Iraq
  • Lies and deception by government officials
  • Fear of a depression
  • Fear of unemployment
  • Fear of losing homes in foreclosure
  • Inability to meet the costs of health care and education

SHOES — NOT ROSES — GREET BUSH IN IRAQ

By Dr. Mohamed Elmasry – Dec 19, 2008

What do you do if you find yourself in the same room with the Commander-in-Chief of the nation who invaded and occupied your country, causing enormous destruction, death, displacement and misery to millions of your fellow citizens?

What you do when you realize that the invading leader has lied to the whole world about his reasons for crippling your homeland’s economy, for turning countless wives into widows, for stealing the future and hope from an entire generation of children, for turning every family into a story of tragedy and loss, turn real estate into graveyards, and for converting palaces into places of torture?

What do you do if that same man is directly responsible for the death and injury of millions of his own people and your countrymen; if he has instigated political divisions that have plunged your country into a deadly insurgency?

Jaffa mosque daubed with ‘Mohammed is a pig,’ ‘Death to Arabs’

Jaffa mosque daubed with ‘Mohammed is a pig,’ ‘Death to Arabs’

By Yoav Stern, Haaretz Correspondent, December 21, 2008

Extremists spray-painted “Mohammed is a pig” and “Death to Arabs” early Sunday on the walls and doors of the Sea Mosque in Jaffa, sparking the fury of the Islamic Movement in the mixed Arab-Jewish city.

The hate slogans also included “Kahane was right,” a reference to the slain Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the outlawed anti-Arab Kach movement, and “No peace without the House of Peace,” alluding to the Hebron structure from which dozens of far-right activists were evicted earlier this month.

Two Stars of David were painted on the entrance to the mosque.

Worshippers discovered the graffiti when they arrived for early morning prayers on Sunday. Sheikh Ahmed Abu Ajweh, head of the Islamic Movement in Jaffa, condemned the acts. He blamed settlers for the graffiti, saying that similar offenses had been committed in the West Bank.

“This is an outgrowth of lessened sentences for those Jews who have been proven to have attacked our holy sites, he said, noting the hurling of a pig’s head in 2005 at the Hassan Beck mosque on the border with neighboring Tel Aviv, opposite the site of the Dolphinarium terror bombing that killed 21 people four years before.

The man who threw the head, an act which coincided with the disengagement from Gaza, was later sentenced to nine months in jail.

While Israel strongly protests desecration of Jewish cemeteries in Europe, there is incitement within Israel against everything Muslim, Sheikh Abu Ajweh said.

HINDUTVA’S GROWING THREAT TO MUSLIMS AND PEACE IN INDIA

Posted by musliminsuffer on December 28, 2008

HINDUTVA’S GROWING THREAT TO MUSLIMS AND PEACE IN INDIA

By Dr. Mohamed Elmasry – Dec 19, 2008

The recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India highlight the dangerously vulnerable situation of India’s Muslims and how Hindutva — the Hindu fundamentalist movement — is determined to ethnically cleanse the country of its Muslim population. Hindutva not only poses a clear and present threat to Muslims, but also to India’s legacy of democratic pluralism. It considers Islam as a foreign religion, blames Indian Muslims for all the country’s ills — even for the 1947 partitioning of India. In short, Hindutva espouses a wholly Hindu-ized India.

Even back in January 1993, Mumbai (formerly Bombay), the most cosmopolitan and commercially powerful city of India, could not guarantee the safety of its Muslim population, who live mostly in urban slums. “More killed as Muslims flee Bombay riots,” read a typical headline in The Times. That year, the extremist rightwing party Shiv Sena (Army of Shiva) and its activists descended on Mumbai’s slums with marked electoral lists, intending to carry out an anti-Muslim terror campaign. The situation was so volatile that many among the city’s business and civil rights leaders felt only the imposition of martial law could save Muslims from wholesale slaughter.

Unfortunately, Western media do not routinely cover the growing issue of how many Indian politicians are calling for a Hindu-ized India and who habitually spout hatred against India’s minorities,  specially Muslims. In fact, Western media prefer to focus on Islamic fundamentalism, while turning blind eyes to the growing threat of Jewish, Christian and Hindu fundamentalism.

Mumbai Massacre Calls For A Probe Of British Role

Mumbai Massacre Calls For A Probe Of British Role

By Ramtanu Maitra

26 December, 2008
Countercurrents.org

The Nov 26-29 siege by terrorists of two top Mumbai hotels and the Nariman House, where a Jewish group had its residence and office, not only resulted in the deaths of more than 200 individuals, but made clear that India, like the United States, is one of the prime targets of Dope, Inc. The questions remain: Who exactly were the terrorists? What were their objectives? And, were any of their objectives attained through this dastardly act?

New Delhi must realize that if the Mumbai attack is to be the last big one, it must carry out a thorough investigation. The Mumbai terror had a very strong British link as is detailed below. On Dec. 1, the London Daily Mail reported that seven British Muslims were involved. That number dwindled to two within a couple of days. The now-deposed chief minister of the state of Maharashtra (where Mumbai is located), Vilasrao Deshmukh, announced that no British Muslims were involved. In other words, whitewashing is fully in progress.

But, it is likely that the evidence of British involvement in this terrorist act has not yet been wiped out. That is why, in the early morning of Dec. 14, Britain’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown came pell-mell to Delhi to urge the Indian Premier Manmohan Singh to allow British intelligence, MI6, to interrogate the only surviving Mumbai terrorist, Mohammed Ajmal Amir Qasab. It is likely that the purpose of the MI6 interrogation is to direct Qasab to provide details to confuse the investigators and keep Britain out of it. The speed with which the British Embassy in Delhi set up the Brown-Singh meeting indicates that there is much at stake for Britain.

What Obama Doesn’t Know

Much has been hidden from the new president by the Bush team

By Nat Hentoff

published: December 17, 2008

No presidential transition team in recent history has ranged as widely as Barack Obama’s in its attempt to find out what minefields he may be walking into. For example, The Washington Post notes, 10 teams of 135 explorers, wearing yellow badges, have descended on dozens of Bush administration offices and agencies to look into their programs, policies, and records.However, I keep remembering a dark warning to the successors of the Bush-Cheney legacy in a January 3 letter to The New York Times by Arthur Gunther of Blauvelt, New York: “Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney have so deeply embedded tacit approval for illegal acts in government agencies that wrongdoing by their philosophical sympathizers will continue in shadow operations for years to come.”

A judge ordered Lisa Valentine, 40, to serve 10 days in jail for contempt of court, said police in Douglasville, a city of about 20,000 people on Atlanta’s west suburban outskirts.

Why blame Islam? Individuals, not religions, carry out inhuman acts

Posted by musliminsuffer on December 28, 2008

bismi-lLahi-rRahmani-rRahiem

=== News Update ===


Why blame Islam?

Individuals, not religions, carry out inhuman acts

Islam is a religion of peace, accepted and practiced by more than 1.25 billion people worldwide. It is the fastest-growing religion in the world, and if it was what some critics claim, why should the people from all walks of life from around the world keep embracing Islam? Where is the sword now?

In Islam, a person has the right to defend himself, his family, his country or his neighbor(s), which justifies the resistance being offered by the people of Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Iraq, Kashmir and Palestine, to attacks on their soils by the so-called liberators, who are actually the occupiers.

The Holy Qur’an clearly states that if a person saves one life, it’s as if he saved humanity, and if a person kills one human being, it’s as if he killed humanity.

What is happening in the enslaved Muslim countries is a natural reaction to occupation, bombings, killing and terrorizing of innocent civilians (children, old men and women), rapes, in addition to looting of resources, national antiques and artifacts, above all the destruction of their property by the occupiers.

Muslim Pencari Ridha Kaum Kuffar

Muslim Pencari Ridha Kaum Kuffar

By: Ust Ihsan Tanjung Hafidzahullah

Ada sebuah gejala baru yang selama ini tidak pernah dikenal dalam tradisi dan sejarah Islam. Yaitu munculnya sosok Muslim yang sibuk mencari keridhaan non-Muslim alias kaum kuffar. Selama ini Islam mengarahkan seorang beriman untuk hidup dengan landasan niat mengejar keridhaan Allah semata. Seorang Muslim hamba Allah ialah seorang yang dalam segenap kiprahnya hanya mengharapkan keridhaan Penciptanya. Setiap kali beramal, berfikir, berbicara, bersikap bahkan berperasaan, seorang Muslim selalu bertanya bagaimanakah Allah akan menilai amal, fikiran, ucapan, sikap dan perasaannya. Demikianlah cara pandang seorang Muslim sejati. Sedangkan bila seorang Muslim pencari ridha kaum kuffar berkiprah, maka ia sibuk bertanya bagaimanakah kaum kuffar akan menilai kiprahnya.

Dewasa ini kita berada dalam era paling kelam dalam sejarah Islam. Dunia menyaksikan munculnya fenomena abnormal dimana seorang Muslim sibuk mencari keridhaan kaum kuffar. Dalam babak kepemimpinan para Mulkan Jabriyyan atau Para Penguasa Diktator dewasa ini, sebagian umat Islam menjadi terpengaruh oleh fihak penguasa dunia. Padahal Allah menyerahkan giliran kepemimpinan dunia kepada kaum kuffar –seperti yang kita saksikan dewasa ini- hanyalah dalam rangka menguji keimanan dan ke-istiqomahan kaum muslimin.
