Israel vs Gaza – some commentary courtesy Sott.net


This is the topic of the day.  That in itself means little as the mass media are just as likely to select something that affects one person but is newsworthy and spectacular.

In this case, however, it might be the precursor to World War III. Even though the details are maybe more political than profound, contain more lies than truth, they still have enormous significance.

Here are 3 Sott.net posts relating to the Israeli – Gaza conflict that need to be read in order to balance the propaganda scales.

Elites Will Make Gazans of Us All By Chris Hodges.

Gaza is a window on our coming dystopia. The growing divide between the world’s elite and its miserable masses of humanity is maintained through spiraling violence. Many impoverished regions of the world, which have fallen off the economic cliff, are beginning to resemble Gaza, where 1.6 million Palestinians live in the planet’s largest internment camp. These sacrifice zones, filled with seas of pitifully poor people trapped in squalid slums or mud-walled villages, are increasingly hemmed in by electronic fences, monitored by surveillance cameras and drones and surrounded by border guards or military units that shoot to kill. These nightmarish dystopias extend from sub-Saharan Africa to Pakistan to China. They are places where targeted assassinations are carried out, where brutal military assaults are pressed against peoples left defenseless, without an army, navy or air force. All attempts at resistance, however ineffective, are met with the indiscriminate slaughter that characterizes modern industrial warfare.

The world must stand up against psychopaths in power, and most importantly stand up against the psychopathic regime in Israel! Ken O’Keefe nails it again

An Israeli speaks out against the crimes of her government

Zoya Klebanova: “I am ashamed to be an Israeli. There, I said it. And yes, I know better than most that there are many good and kind people in Israel. But what is happening right now in Gaza in the name of those good people CANNOT be tolerated, because it goes against everything humane and decent.

Yes, there are deaths on the Israeli side as well, but despite the heartbreak and tragedy experienced by the families of the victims, it’s important to understand that the amount of pain and suffering experienced by the Palestinians is infinitely greater, and it’s the responsibility of all of us to speak out against it!

We forgot the lessons of the past, and because of that, because of our lack of responsibility, ignorance and inaction, we allowed psychopathic leaders and their twisted ideologies to take hold of our own perception of reality. But if we could just stop for a moment and think, we would clearly see that this situation is not about “who fired first” and “how many rockets” (although, research shows that Israel was the aggressor in most past cases, including this one), but about the basics, like human decency, conscience, and not having blood on one’s hands after our government (“oops, again”) is murdering children and calling it ‘self-defense’.
And that’s the bottom line, that I, as an Israeli, even if I didn’t pull the trigger, will still have blood on my hands if I see what is happening and stay silent.”

    • Thanks ‘mjazzguitar’,for your submitted comments. It is fair to publish as much information that is relevant and accurate as is necessary to ‘paint’ a meaningful picture.
      It is fair, IF information is truly accurate and balanced and/or if “balancing” information is available to show both sides of the story.

      This video, and others following after, show portions of life, lifestyles and various activities which are hopefully true. (Sometimes documentaries are contrived and misleading but they are usually the ones seen on public TV).
      But it is necessary to keep in mind that they are selected glimpses of a vast complex of what makes up a country and its people and conditions. Somewhat like a few pieces of a million piece jigsaw puzzle.

      Judgements cannot be safely made, based on such ‘bits’, but the ‘bits’ are invaluable for expanding our knowledge and understanding.
