“Exterminate all the Brutes”: Gaza 2009

On Saturday December 27, the latest US-Israeli attack on helpless Palestinians was launched. The attack had been meticulously planned, for over 6 months according to the Israeli press. The planning had two components: military and propaganda. It was based on the lessons of Israel’s 2006 invasion of Lebanon, which was considered to be poorly planned and badly advertised. We may, therefore, be fairly confident that most of what has been done and said was pre-planned and intended.

That surely includes the timing of the assault: shortly before noon, when children were returning from school and crowds were milling in the streets of densely populated Gaza City. It took only a few minutes to kill over 225 people and wound 700, an auspicious opening to the mass slaughter of defenseless civilians trapped in a tiny cage with nowhere to flee.

Hamas, a Democratic Party or Terrorist Organization

Posted by Parsin on January 22, 2009

Palestinians supporting Hamas

Palestinians supporting Hamas

Most of us hear some people calling Hamas as a terrorist group. The term was originally used by the Bush administration (beside Israel) to put Hamas in a defending position and to avoid any further negotiations with them. The reason was very clear: Hamas is not pro-west! US and Europe would like to see a group in power that is friendly to them, no matter if they are really terrorists (like Al-Qaeda before 9/11) and/or dictators (like Saudi King, Egyptian Mubarak, Jordan King, . . . you name it!)

The fact is that Hamas may be categorized as a hardliner compared to the Fatah in Palestine, but by no means we can call them a terrorist group. Hamas chose the democratic procedures in Palestine and is considered as on of the most popular groups among Palestinians and in the Middle-East. There is a big difference between Hamas and terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda (made by CIA) that respect no democratic ways and search power through terror and killing innocent people.

It was because of this policy that Hamas was able to win in an election held 2 years ago in Palestine. The Washington Post stated “the radical Islamic movement Hamas won a large majority in the new Palestinian parliament” in Jan. 26, 2006.

The election results stunned U.S. and Israeli officials, who have repeatedly stated that they would not work with a Palestinian Authority that included Hamas, which both countries and the European Union have designated as a terrorist organization.”

Gaza: The Meaning of Israeli Cease-Fire

Posted by Parsin on January 18, 2009

JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says Israel will unilaterally halt its 22-day offensive against Hamas but keep troops on the ground in Gaza for the time being.

It is very clear that Israel is defeated and that is the the main reason for this brutal regime to call for a unilateral cease fire. Otherwise, they could continue their crimes as they did in the last 22 days.

It is also obvious that the cause of cease fire declaration by Israel is not by any means a humanitarian. It is not also due to the pressure by international powers. In fact, there was more pressure at the first 10 days than there is now.
