Israel doing what it does best, killing Palestinians (again)


I love the policy Israel has for anyone they suspect as a ‘terrorist’ (and seeing as that seems to be anyone not Jewish, it’s a pretty broad term), whenever a ‘terrorist’ fires a rocket at Israel for, oh I don’t know, try 4 decades of occupation, Israel responds with random group punishment and state sanctioned assassinations. Seeing as the reason the Palestinians are attacking Israel with these glorified sky rockets is because the Israelis are occupying their land, and have done so for 4 decades, one might venture that group punishment might not really solve the problem, but Israel has NEVER let reason get in the way of their eye for an eye Palestinian aid regime.

Israeli-Palestinian clashes flare
Six Palestinians have been killed in Israeli army raids in the West Bank and an air strike in the Gaza Strip, in the worst flare-up of violence in weeks.
Five of the dead were in Jenin in the West Bank, where gunfire was reported to be continuing into the night. Also late on Saturday, an Israeli missile struck a car in the Gaza Strip, killing a suspected militant. The strike came shortly after rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, slightly injuring two people. Three Palestinian militants, two from al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and one from Islamic Jihad, were killed when Israeli undercover troops opened fire on their car in Jenin. A Palestinian policeman was also shot and killed by Israeli troops near Jenin, Palestinian witnesses said. The man, Mohammed Abed, was watching an Israeli arrest operation in the village of Kafr Dan from a roof when he was shot, Palestinian security forces said. The Israeli army said its soldiers had been under attack during the operation and had fired on a man armed with a rifle. Hours later, Israeli troops returned to the Jenin refugee camp, provoking a gun battle with local militants, Reuters news agency reported. Palestinian officials said a 17-year-old Palestinian girl had been shot dead by Israeli troops as she stood at a window in her house.

LOL Bomber, I think you taking a one sided view of it, though i am sure i will get the HATE mail over this; yet fucked if I care.

You see for Israel, this is all there land, as old and even older than the Dead sea scrolls this land was to be theres, it was promised to them, I know thats its hard for you to understand (maybe not)But it was promised to there forefathers that it will always belong to them No westerner will convince them otherwise.

To the killing of the Palestinians , it seems to be a little tit for tat, suicide bombers, for Israels air strikes and tanks, yep its not fair you say, well when has war been fair? Now lets look at this, these suicide bombers don't kill military targets in there mission, Shit no, it's not even on the agenda, it's anyone; man, women and children, very deliberate attack you could say.. "Israel however, makes heaps of fuck ups, no excuse, but a least in there targeting, most of its focus, it to destroy the leaders that push, these Suicide bombers to there destiny. But do note, that you don't see these H.A.M.A.S leaders out there blowing themselves up.... oh no there the voice from "AaLah"

Now last but not least, if Israel is taking back its, considered country realm; (as they believe) What country didn't have war to gain and inch or an acre, shit little old GOD own (as most kiwis put it) New Zealand should know about that; Old prick and a half Governor Gore and the killing of Maori in Parihaka, for what shall I ask... hmmm for The natives land...

so it seems it happens everywhere, but for Israel the land they are reclaiming, (as they believe) is and always was their's, no matter what we think...

How is it their land? I always wondered about this aspect of the history. All through out my studies of ancient history (I majored in it) I never came across substantial evidence for this claim. So enlighten me. From my understanding, there's been numerous NOMADIC tribes who've settled in the region simultaneously and moved on. The area has always been dynamic in this respect. Therefore, no tribe can really make a claim to it considering there have been multiple settlements at any given period.

And let's say they did 'own' the land. Who are 'they'? What's Jewish? What's Hebrew? Who decides these definitions? I'm apparently Hebrew, but I'm not Jewish, so does that mean I have the right to arrive in Palestine and make my ancient historical claim to the land? Do I have the right to displace a Palestinian family and tell them "Oh, why am I taking your home away from you? Well, you see, my people lived here ohhhh around 3000 years ago, so you best be leaving now”. Which brings me to my other point: Does an ancient historical claim (assuming there's truth to it) make it morally right to take the land from a people who've lived there for centuries? Whose culture and identity is grounded in the land? There is NO justification for this.


"To the killing of the Palestinians, it seems to be a little tit for tat, suicide bombers, for Israels air strikes and tanks, yep its not fair you say, well when has war been fair? Now lets look at this, these suicide bombers don't kill military targets in there mission, Shit no, it's not even on the agenda, it's anyone; man, women and children, very deliberate attack you could say..

But do note, that you don't see these H.A.M.A.S leaders out there blowing themselves up.... oh no there the voice from "AaLah""

Not all suicide bombers target civilians. But those that do- did it ever occur to you they're targeting civilian areas because they can't target the military because it's so heavily protected? Nor does suicide bombing occur nearly as often as the routine collective punishment that the IDF dishes out. So your understanding of collective punishment is they're targeting leaders? Ha. Like a ventriloquist dummy, you're repeating the IDF's manifesto.

Important to note, suicide bombing in a lot of cases is the act of an individual who has no association with Hamas or any other group. It's the act of the desperate and the suffering. The horrible conditions Palestinians must live in drives them to such measures. It's the continued humiliation and being treated like animals that's what fuels the motive. It's not by the hand of Hamas. But it's in Israel's best interest to blame Hamas, to continue its demonisation campaign.

"Now last but not least, if Israel is taking back its, considered country realm; (as they believe) What country didn't have war to gain and inch or an acre, shit little old GOD own (as most kiwis put it) New Zealand should know about that; Old prick and a half Governor Gore and the killing of Maori in Parihaka, for what shall I ask... hmmm for The natives land... "

Okay, if you're going to make the comparison between the colonisation of Palestine and NZ, at least make it a good one. When one criticises Israel, it's because of their stance against colonisation, apartheid and racism. That doesn't mean they're ignoring it's occurred here in NZ. Geez. However, the difference between NZ and Israel is, the former has already occurred, and now we need to make amends and address historical injustices collectively. Israel's occupation and oppression of the Palestinians is raw, and a modern version of what's occurred in the past. We sat back and let it happen in the past, but-as the Israelis like to say- “never again”.

The only map you didn't show is the one from 1922 when Britain split off 80% of Palestine and gave it to the Hashemites. Of course, you'll never show that map because you don't want anyone to know that the land of Jordan was once part of Palestine.

"...IN SUM, PALESTINIANS MUST DIE A SLOW DEATH SO THAT ISRAEL CAN HAVE ITS SECURITY, WHICH IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER BUT CANNOT BE REALISED BECAUSE OF THE SPECIAL ISRAELI "INSECURITY".THE WHOLE WORLD MUST SYMPATHISE, WHILE THE CRIES OF PALESTINIAN ORPHANS, SICK OLD WOMEN, BEREAVED COMMUNITIES AND TORTURED PRISONERS SIMPLY GO UNHEARD AND UNRECORDED.DOUBTLESS, WE WILL BE TOLD, THESE HORRORS SERVE A LARGER PURPOSE THAN MERE SADISTIC CRUELTY.AFTER ALL, "THE TWO SIDES" ARE ENGAGED IN A "CYCLE OF VIOLENCE" WHICH HAS TO BE STOPPED, SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE.ONCE IN A WHILE, WE OUGHT TO PAUSE AND DECLARE INDIGNANTLY THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE SIDE WITH AN ARMY AND A COUNTRY: THE OTHER IS A STATELESS, DISPOSSESSED POPULATION OF PEOPLE WITHOUT RIGHTS OR ANY PRESENT WAY OF SECURING THEM.THE LANGUAGE OF SUFFERING AND CONCRETE DAILY LIFE HAS EITHER BEEN HIJACKED, OR IT HAS BEEN SO PERVERTED AS, IN MY OPINION, TO BE USELESS EXCEPT AS PURE FICTION DEPLOYED AS A SCREEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF MORE KILLING AND PAINSTAKING TORTURE-SLOWLY, FASTIDIOUSLY, INEXORABLY.THAT IS THE TRUTH OF WHAT PALESTINIANS SUFFER.BUT IN ANYCASE, ISRAELI POLICY WILL ULTIMATELY FAIL..."

Well Anti flag, I realise that you are a well educated, so I cant compete, yet throughout ones studies I know oh to well that education services such as universities etc. etc, don't consider religious material, As most westerners consider it, to be crap, utter Bullshit etc. etc.... Hence my point when I said it does not matter whether we believe it, Israel does, because without these scriptures they would not have had a past. Spawn into life fully grown and as you know that's not possible.

I will try to explain, as I know you all look to the political reasons for this, but simply they are reclaiming the land that was once there own, Promised to them by the GOD of there forefathers. (Yes I know Crap right, bullshit....) to you maybe but not to them...

Anti flag said......How is it their land? I always wondered about this aspect of the history. All through out my studies of ancient history (I majored in it) I never came across substantial evidence for this claim. So enlighten me. Ancient text, we call all these books combined "The Holy Bible" to Israel there are scripture and
genealogy, Genesis, there forefather Abraham was promised his descendants will be as many as the grain of sand.... he was also promised that where ever he sets his foot the GOD will give this land to his descendants, As it is written Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac (sorry my spelling is crap) Ishmael was a son to his wife's servant, yet Abraham wife fell pregnant, she order Abraham to cast her and Ishmael out, that hurt but he did. Isaac return to where his Father (Abraham was from and took for himself a wife, and they both had 2 children Jacob was the younger, The eldest son was favored by his dad Isaac, yet Isaac getting old started to lose his sight Jacob and his Mother tricked Isaac into passing on a blessing to Jacob, instead of the eldest brother, Jacob feared his brother and took
off, Jacob working some 14 years, during this time he loved his employers youngest Daughter and agree to work 7 years for her hand in marriage, The Father tricked him and gave him the eldest, this upset Jacob but again he agreed
to work another 7 years for the youngest after that 7 years Jacob left with his 2 wives, from them he had 12 sons, which became to be known as The 12 tribes of Israel, so Jacob was also known as Israel.

I know this may seem all like crap to most people, but consider this, all this is Israel's history and we can't change it no mater how much we moan about it... now where was I.

Israel (Jacob) loved his youngest son Joseph, had him a coat of many colors, his brothers where jealous, so they sold him (Joseph) to traders heading into Egypt, Joseph was sold to a captain and was a slave, Joseph was accused of rap, and was
put into prison, Pharaoh had a dream, Joseph told him the meaning, of this dream, which was 7 years of plenty food, 7 years of none... Joseph was put in charge to gather in the time of plenty and to hand out the in the time of none, it was during the time when there was none that Joseph's brothers came to buy food, Joseph knew them and told them next time if they return to bring there Father, Israel (Jacob) to which they did, he revealed to them who he was, and Israel came to Live in Egypt, Many. many years passed and up rose a Pharaoh that didn't know what Joseph had did, Israelites (as then they where known) were oppressed, oppression came to the point that no Israelite family will have boy babies.

I am sure you are aware of Exodus, the signs that followed and the exile of the Israelites from Egypt into the wilderness, heading to the promise land, through Jericho.... this is how it became there's.... Yes , whether we chose to believe it of not, that there history, they believe it, that's all that matters..

Anti flag said......and let's say they did 'own' the land. Who are 'they'? What's Jewish? What's Hebrew? Who decides these definitions? I'm apparently Hebrew, but I'm not Jewish, so does that mean I have the right to
arrive in Palestine and make my ancient historical claim to the land?
I cant answer what is Jewish or Hebrew, You do have a right, "BUT" its whether you chose to, that makes the difference.

Anti flag said......Not all suicide bombers target civilians. But those that do- did it ever occur to you they're targeting civilian areas because they can't target the military because it's so heavily protected? Nor does suicide bombing occur nearly as often as the routine collective punishment that the IDF dishes out. So your understanding of collective punishment is they're targeting leaders? Ha. Like a ventriloquist dummy, you're repeating the IDF's manifesto. So let me get this right, because they cant target military targets , killing or suicide bombing civilians is ok then? As for me repeating the IDF manifesto, will be honest anti flag I don't know who the IDF is to repeat there manifesto... The things I posted were my own thoughts... I very rarely think of any of this. When I mentioned HAMAS, I never meant for you to think I considered only Hamas to do this, "BUT" the Majority of suicide Bombers are connected to a group in one way or another.

Anti flag said......The horrible conditions Palestinians must live in drives them to such measures. It's the continued humiliation and being treated like animals that's what fuels the motive. It's not by the hand of Hamas. But it's in Israel's best interest to blame Hamas, to continue its demonisation campaign. HOLD UP I remember watching this on TV, when Israeli Soldiers went missing and some Palestinian groups played a part in this, Israel answered back with and air strike, told the Palestinian govt etc. etc to release them.... NOW the CNN news was there and BBC, which showed a Palestinian women pleading on TV for her govt to give up the soldiers so the air strike will stop, another Palestinian man pull her away from the camera and said are you crazy, now the camera man cut away... Sorry if I seem and bit, blinded from your truth, that they lived so poorly, but I think they bring a lot of it on themselves, BUT NOT ALL OF IT. But explain, why should any country after a long. long. long history of bombings, suicide or otherwise, just drop it all and say Friends... it has been a long time. "Come let us eat together and be merry". Shit if I employed someone that stole from me, i wont want him in my shop again..


Anti flag said......Okay, if you're going to make the comparison between the colonisation of Palestine and NZ, at least make it a good one.

We sat back and let it happen in the past, but-as the Israelis like to say- “never again”. AT LEAST MAKE IT A GOOD ONE, what the killing of 5000+ unarmed Maori by 2500 armed soldiers is a bad example of apartheid and racism, the means was the same, it was for the LAND, OH that's right Anti Flag its in the past right forget it, like the foreshore and sea bed was and ancient thing too huh...Yet I think Israel, they keep it close to mind the 4 million that where decimated by Hilters crap, why? So Israel says “never again”. I would say the same thing, "NEVER AGAIN".

WAR ON TERROR now a phrase to avoid!

A term overused and misused ANTI FLAG?

'Terror' or terrorism isn't a thing you can have a war against..."WAR" is an irrelevant concept...By calling it a war the Bush administration conditioned the American public to expect (illegal) invasions of (sovereign) countries (Afghanistan/Iraq)...and delivered WAR...Gwynne Dyer/NZHERALD/TUESDAY APRIL 24/2007...

Do the Chinese have a right to colonise the central city in large numbers choosing to live and study on the Uni doorstep because 100 years ago a handful came here to find their fortune in the goldmines in Otago mate...they don't want them down there anymore cos white flight by all the single sex school snobs means we are left with all the "Ethnics" up here...

or do Maori have a prior claim to almost everything they can think of even though they got their come-uppance today when they sang God of Nations at the Anzac service with the English version first as it should be sang at the "All Black's" and League tests as well mate...not that I can be bothered with Sky T.V even if they do broadcast parliament undemocratically...user pays debates anyone...no thanks matey...

I am a mate? shit when did this happen?

Yet let me address your little tinny issue that seems to be a massive CHIP on that humpback of yours....

Anon said......Do the Chinese have a right to colonise the central city in large numbers choosing to live and study on the Uni doorstep because 100 years ago a handful came here to find their fortune in the goldmines in Otago how does this relate to the same thing when I spoke about Israel's history? you thought with your big toe to bring up colonisation of the Chinese to Aotearoa, on whether they have rights to colonise Auckland because REDNECKS (maybe like yourself) dont like them in the South Island? shit anon you have to be dangerous with a mind like that, I can only guess, that when GOD was handing out BRAINS, you thought he said TRAINS and didnt want one...... shit go away and think about what you said.

Anon said......or do Maori have a prior claim to almost everything they can think of even though they got their come-uppance today when they sang God of Nations at the Anzac service with the English version first as it should be sang at the "All Black's" and League tests as well mate...not that I can be bothered with Sky T.V even if they do broadcast parliament undemocratically... WHAT MAORI CAN THINK OF ..... now thats a good one, is it Maori that came up with New Zealand's Air space or how about New Zealand's waters....Yet correct me if I am wrong....Maori was here in this country before your forefathers set foot here, Right? just like the chinese your forefathers colonised this country, I believe the English Privy council refered to your forefathers to a letter to Govenor Hobson, as Crimnals, people of doubt full character....that was the reason why they wanted to form a govt here, because of your crimnal forefathers. Now I acknowledge that the chinese was oppressed here to, but not by us Maori....
Now we have a Treaty in which your English version says this:
Her Majesty the Queen of England confirms and guarantees
to the Chiefs and Tribes of New
Zealand and to the respective
families and individuals thereof
the full exclusive and undisturbed
possession of their Lands and
Estates Forests Fisheries and
other properties which they may
collectively or individually possess
so long as it is their wish and
desire to retain the same in their
possession;
now for the Maori the fishing quoter is at 15%and what about the Foreshore and seabed which was confiscated by this govt, yet Maori had claim to it as it is a source of food... these are just some, I could go on long night listing them, But explain how this is full exclusive and undisturbed possession that the Crown promised.... Oh yes thats right, according to you anon. We Maori just think it up. So you opened your mouth about something you never checked.... lol you do sound REDNECKED.. as for the ALL BLACKS, Anzac service... Not all of us support that crap Anon, I dont support Maori going to war and I dont watch Rugby, can't stand it to tell you the truth, Yet why do Maori sing that anthem crap? well its called colonisation anon, its been over 150 years of your Forefathers BULLSHIT....

Most maori dont even know about the Treaty contents.... or the DOI and some Maori are as white as you or both counts.

You need to stop thinking with your little head and get you facts right....PAKEHA
