Oh, Gaza, I weap for you; War Crimes.

Because I do not watch American tv or listen to radio news unless it is pbs or democracy now or one of the two existing left-wing online radio stations, I do not get the lies that are being told the public first-hand; I get the MSM propaganda from thiose who do. It was just mentioned by one of my friends that
American media are reporting violence that took place along the Gaza-Israel border on January 27th as, in the words of CNN, "the first incidents of violence since last week's Mideast cease-fire," telling the public that Palestinians broke the ceasefire.

This is a lie, and not the only one.
"The reality, however, is that Israel had already violated the cease-fire at least 7 times, the Israeli military killing 2 Palestinian civilians and injuring at least 5, at least one of them a child:

* Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer in Khuza'a east of Khan Yunis on Jan 18
* Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer east of Jabalia on Jan 19
* Israeli naval gunboats shelled the Gaza coast line, causing damage to civilian structures on Jan 21
* Israeli troops shot and injured a child east of Gaza City on Jan 22
* Israeli gunboat fire injured 4-7 Palestinian fishermen on Jan 22
* Israeli shelling set a Palestinian house on fire on Jan 22
* Israeli tanks fired on the border town of Al Faraheen, causing damage to homes and farms on Jan 24
This list does not include two Palestinian children who were killed on January 20th by unexploded ordnance left from Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza." by Haitham Sabbah,"Israel Violated Cease-fire 7 Times, No Media Reports," Jan 28th, 2009. "Slide"

But, what I find worse is the truths that they are speaking, evidently with no sense of shame(reminds one of Bush and Cheney). They sound entirely too much like the Nazis for comfort. They are intentionally and openly blocking and destroying all attempts to give humanitarian aid to the Palestinians. They are telling them to go to the center of town for their own safety, then bombing the shit out of the area, leaving many dead and wounded. They are refusing to let medical supplies through to the hospitals that have little or no supplies left to deal with the mounting severe casualties. They have bulldozed their water towers leaving them without water in a desert. They have hemmed these people into a tiny area where they can barely move around and are then murdering them, routinely. Mothers are killed in front of their children, deliberately. Children die in their parents arms. The screams and tears and pain are endless, and still the Israelis push on, increasing the death toll with every passing moment.

Don't believe me? Well, here is a video you might find interesting, if you can bare to watch it.

Gaza 2009: We will never forget

This is an atrocity and a war crime to match any that every came out of Germany.
Shame on you, Israel, shame on you.
