Eye for an eye, and part of the cheek, all the nose and several limbs

If what Israel is doing are 'surgical strikes' it looks like their Doctors do surgery by blindly swinging rusty chainsaws in kindergartens.

The latest spike in violence by an apartheid state like Israel would be universally condemned, but Israel being the 51st State of America gets to justify their brutal occupation in a bubble of hypocrisy.

Seeing as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak both tried to create a war on purpose in 2010, I don't think it's cynical to see this latest massacre of Palestinians as nothing more than an election campaign for Netanyahu.

The IDF propaganda machine that is David Farrar (and disturbingly FirstLine on TV3) pumps the justifications and crap rationals for the continued deaths of Palestinians while the Israeli Ambassador gets to spin without any real challenge.

The hopelessness and brutality inflicted upon the people of Gaza should shame the rest of us. Israel must be as isolated as South Africa and any incoming progressive Government must consider closing the Israeli embassy as a matter of principle.

With all the shrieks of 'self defense' coming from the Zionists and apologists, you'd think it was the Israelies that were being illegally occupied and collectively punished.

Couldn't agree more with this post. Einstein (a Jew) apparently said: "It would be my greatest sadness to see Zionists do to Palestinian Arabs much of what Nazis did to Jews."
No they don't have gas chambers, but Gaza is run very much like a giant German concentration camp, with 1.5M people living under an umbrella of constant fear and oppression. The Israeli's get away with it, 'cos the muzzies have been successfully labelled as the enemies of the West. Propaganda, as Hitler realised, is a fantastic tool. In the rare event the "we hate muzzies, so who cares" line fails, any criticism of Israel whatsoever automatically gets you branded as an anti-Semite Nazi holocaust lover. Done and dusted.

I still find it hard to fathom that countries like USA and its allies back Israel in the slaughter of Palestinians. Israel has such a screw hold in and around Gaza that its unbelievable that the people survive. Their housing,Water, Food and medicines are so controlled that if it was any other country other than Israel squeezing the life out of the Palestinians they would be attacked by the USA. It is no different to Iraq or Afghanistan, they jumped in to free the people from Tyrants and that is all Israel is.
