THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“Americans who have no experience with, or knowledge of, tyranny believe that only terrorists will experience the unchecked power of the state. They will believe this until it happens to them, or their children, or their friends.” — Paul Craig Roberts
The Israeli army on Monday sent messages to thousands of Palestinians living near Gaza City to flee shortly after a mortar shell killed at least four people in Israel.
“A short while ago, phonecalls were made and text messages were sent out to the civilian population of Shejaiya, Zeitun and eastern Jabaliya calling them to evacuate immediately towards central Gaza City,” a statement from the army said, referring to three areas to the north, south and east of Gaza City.
Because I just saw an image of a massive bomb attack on Gaza City; was this the IDF’s intent, bombing innocent men, women and children they had ordered, through instructions from these phone calls and texts to be there, to have them massed there, just at the time this bombardment started?!?
The Israeli leadership, and IDF leadership, have the morals of a trout!
No, wait a minute: that’s a bloody insult to the trout!!
Not just numbers: online memorial publishes names, faces of Palestinians killed in Gaza
Today a Marshall Islands-flagged tanker ‘United Kalavrvta’ carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan was anchored near the Port of Galveston, Texas, despite Washington’s long-standing concern over independent oil sales from the autonomous region. It would be at least the second time a U.S. company has taken delivery of oil that the Baghdad government says was smuggled from the country.
The semi-autonomous government in Kurdistan argues the exports are within its rights under Iraq’s federal constitution, but Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki insists all Iraqi oil must be brokered by the state oil company.
The shipment is significant because it is one of the first from the new pipeline through Turkey, which Baghdad emphatically calls a smuggling operation. To make matters more tense with Baghdad, the Kurds siezed northern oil fields from ISIS control to keep them out of the hands of the Jihadist insurgents who control the northwest of the country.
It is just a question of time before the government in Baghdad collapses completely, and Kurdistan’s officials have been making statements about creating a completely independent country here.
Ultimately, like it or not, the US is going to have to deal with an independent Kurdistan, with oil to sell.
On Friday and Saturday, thousands of people marched across Europe to protest the Israeli military onslaught in Gaza strip that has killed over 1,000 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and wounded over 6,000. Anti-Gaza war protests took place in several European countries including Britain, Germany, France and Ireland.
Over 60,000 people took to the streets in London, marching from the Israeli Embassy to Parliament.
Smoke rises as flames spread across buildings after Israeli strikes in the Shijaiyah neighborhood in Gaza City. The airstrikes set off huge explosions that turned the night sky orange.
“The Strategic Terror Attack of Kerry” announced the absurd headline of Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the most serious in the country and widely considered to be the unofficial voice of the Shin Beth secret police, on July 28, 2014.
The newspaper was referring to the attempt of the U.S. Secretary of State to achieve a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel with the help of Turkey and Qatar.
Zayn Malik probably wasn’t expecting the barrage of abuse he received from followers after he pledged his support for the #FreePalestine social media campaign.
The One Direction star, who was raised a Muslim, was bombarded with death threats and messages of complaint after he “did a Rihanna” and tweeted the hashtag to his 13million followers.
The simple fact is that Zionist Israel will not stop the genocide in Gaza because of the moral outrage of the world. This is their track record. It is impossible for people without conscience to act with conscience. The ONLY way that Israel will desist from its carnage is to be forced to stop, and the USA alone has the power to stop the Israeli war machine. How could the Americans stop the Zionists? Simply by stopping all military and financial aid to the Israeli state. The Israeli war machine is built on US aid, military hardware, military technology and the Israeli economy is propped up by US aid, all courtesy of the US taxpayer………….KT
My little sister -2 years old- knows how to say “Dababa” which means military tank, and F16 fighter jet as well.
There is no Eid in Gaza, streets are still full of blood and it smells death in every corner.
The demonstrators made a short tour of financial institutions in midtown Manhattan that are supporting Israeli policies financially and aiding in colonization. The demonstrators stopped at 2 banks and walked through the diamond district where many were glad to have a heavy police escort since the business owners appeared to become
agitated and threatening. In front of one of the banks 6 people performed an act of civil disobedience by having a die-in after spraying the bank and street with fake blood. Using passive resistance, the police were forced to lift and carry them to the police van to arrest them.
Netanyahu says again that the operation may take some time.

The world must do as we, Israel, says because we are always right and everybody else is always wrong………..KT
The administration is peeved at Israel calling Kerry bad names,but they could give a flying f!#k! over Israel killing women and children with US taxpayer supplied weapons of mass destruction! It’s crazy!
United States Secretary of State John Kerry has attracted the ire of Israel following his latest failed attempt to broker a ceasefire in Gaza, and American officials are warning that a wider rift in relations could come with serious repercussions.
All eyes are on Gaza, where the death toll from Israel’s merciless bombing campaign has topped 1,000.
But back in Jerusalem, where sixteen-year-old Muhammad Abu Khudair was burned alive by Jewish vigilantes in a “revenge killing” incited by Israeli politicians early this month, right-wing lynch mobs continue to roam the streets in search of Arabs to attack.
Their most recent victims are twenty-year-old Palestinians Amir Shwiki and Samer Mahfouz from the Beit Hannina neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem. The pair were severely beaten into unconsciousness on Friday night by Israeli youths armed with iron bars and baseball bats.
Media report says activists – the same behind 2010’s ‘Mavi Marmara’ – scheduled to take off with Turkish military protection.
Last night’s Israeli announcement of a 24-hour extension of the “humanitarian ceasefire” on the Gaza Strip didn’t last very long at all, before Israel claimed Hamas was violating what they themselves referred to as a “unilateral” pause, and renewed full-scale bombing of civilian areas of Gaza.
IDF confirms firing a mortar round into UNRWA school in Gaza, but says the school was empty at the time.
There is no way the IDF could know that for a fact when the artillery barrage started. This is just another lie from the “by way of deception” gang!
Muslims in Syria do not understand why Norway is under a terror alert and it is likely propaganda to distract from the troubles in Gaza, says an Islamic spokesperson living in Oslo.
Seldom have I seen a more sickening atrocity picture. Send it to all your friends with a simple message attached:
JEWS ARE DOING THIS, AND THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT GIVES ITS FULL SUPPORT TO THESE SADISTIC CHILD KILLERS.
According to the Jew-controlled American mass media, it is the child-killing Israelis who deserve our deepest love and sympathy in the ongoing Gaza bloodbath.
As for the hundreds of dead Palestinian children, their heads blown off and lying in mangled heaps of blood-sodden bone on their mothers’ equally shattered bodies, we must rejoice in the death of these evil “terrorists”.
No, I do not exaggerate. If you think I am lying, listen to this sickening 11-minute video on Fox News.
No Happy Eid in Gaza today
Everyone needs to email these gruesome videos and photos to every member of Congress who voted to support Israel’s aggression against Gaza (which is ALL of them) and include that this video or image will be your deciding factor in the next election. Congress needs to be taught that there is a price to pay for selling out the nation to Israel.
In the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, the dominant discourse is that the Palestinian militants provoked the hostilities — while Israel, as President Barack Obama affirmed last week, is acting in legitimate self-defense. Many have attempted to problematize this narrative, for instance by arguing that Israel, as an occupying power, does not have a legitimate legal or moral claim to self-defense. Others have argued that rockets fired by Hamas do not constitute an existential crisis for Israel or its citizens and certainly did not warrant the killing of more than 500 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women and children.

The Gazan death toll has climbed above 1,100, no end in sight. Hamas is demonized for rejecting the cease-fire extension, mention of its one-sided character–Israeli troops remain in place, as are the full parameters of the Occupation, notably, the long-term, dispiriting, life-destroying (literally) blockade– being conveniently omitted from media coverage. Despite world concern, Palestinians are in more desperate straits than ever. Beit Hanoun was three days ago; who knows how much further punishment awaits the people of Gaza, and with demonstrations increasing, the West Bank, too?
This must really lift up the morale of the IDF!
I’ve devoted a good deal of my life to Israel. I’ve studied, read, visited, lived, breathed it. Not in the way diehard pro-Israel fanatics do. But in a different way that matched my own intellectual and political proclivities. It’s a subject that is rich, varied, troubling, bedeviling, and exhilarating. But every once in a while I learn something I never thought possible; and I don’t mean this in a good way.
Corporate media, Former Secretary of State Albright worry about mounting deaths posing image problem for Israel.
Note that they are totally unconcerned about the actual deaths, only that they are causing an image problem for Israel!
A United Nations human rights body accused Israeli forces on Thursday of mistreating Palestinian children, including by torturing those in custody and using others as human shields.
Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 war, are routinely denied registration of their birth and access to health care, decent schools and clean water, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said.
“Palestinian children arrested by (Israeli) military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released,” it said in a report.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry said it had responded to a report by the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF in March on ill-treatment of Palestinian minors and questioned whether the U.N. committee’s investigation covered new ground.
The protesters are chanting slogans, including ‘Down with Israel’, ‘God Is Great’ and ‘Silence of Any Muslim Is Betrayal to Quran’ in solidarity with the Palestinian people, voicing their anger at the policies of the Israeli regime for the unprecedented offense on the Gaza Strip over last 19 days resulting in over 800 dead and over 4700 injured.
How DARE Iran protest us! ATTACK!” — Nodding Yahoo
Fox’s Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz definitively laid blame on Hamas Sunday morning for initiating the current hostilities with Israel, stating at the top of his show, “There is no question that Hamas started the latest round of mideast violence, first with the killing of three Israeli teenagers, and then by firing rockets indiscriminately at the Jewish state.”
BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw noticed the line right away, and thought it fishy, as word emerged Friday that the kidnappings were likely the work of a lone cell — “Hamas-affiliated,” in the words of BBC’s Jon Donnison, “but not operating under leadership.”
Kurtz amended his statement later on Twitter: “My point on the three slain Israeli teenagers is that Hamas praised killings as a heroic act.”
No, they didn’t Kurtz. Even when caught in a lie, you keep right on lying, like the good little presstitute you are!
Israeli spokesmen have their work cut out explaining how they have killed more than 1,000 Palestinians in Gaza, most of them civilians, compared with just three civilians killed in Israel by Hamas rocket and mortar fire. But on television and radio and in newspapers, Israeli government spokesmen such as Mark Regev appear slicker and less aggressive than their predecessors, who were often visibly indifferent to how many Palestinians were killed.
There is a reason for this enhancement of the PR skills of Israeli spokesmen. Going by what they say, the playbook they are using is a professional, well-researched and confidential study on how to influence the media and public opinion in America and Europe. Written by the expert Republican pollster and political strategist Dr Frank Luntz, the study was commissioned five years ago by a group called The Israel Project, with offices in the US and Israel, for use by those “who are on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel”.
“You have to understand the culture in which we live,” said Kedar. “The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders.” When presenter Yossi Hadar asked if that “could filter down” the organization’s ranks, Kedar replied: “No, because lower down the considerations are entirely different. Terrorists like those who kidnapped the children and killed them — the only thing that deters them is if they know that their sister or their mother will be raped in the event that they are caught. What can you do, that’s the culture in which we live.”
I note that since the Israeli police have admitted that HAMAS had nothing to do with the kidnapping and killing of those three teenagers in the West Bank last month, that this “professor” has neither acknowledged the fact that Israel wrongfully attacked HAMAS, nor retracted his observation that raping the Palestinian women is the best way to tone down the situation.
Frankly I think an apology by Israel and full restitution for the damage they caused would be more appropriate.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said that the Israeli army will continue its military operations in the Gaza Strip after the end of the ceasefire, and described the images of devastation in Gaza as a “good thing”.
Speaking to Yedioth Ahranoth newspaper, the far-right politician said that Israel must ensure the security of Israeli citizens, no matter how many hours and days it takes. “The truce will end at midnight and I have no doubt that the army will continue its operations with full force, and then we’ll see results.”
When asked about scenes of massive destruction that have been broadcast from the Gaza Strip, he said “our soldiers did a good job.” The military, he added, has “full authority” to achieve the goals set by the Israeli cabinet.
Another successful US and NATO regime change………………KT
A rocket hit a fuel storage tank containing 1.5 million gallons of gasoline, triggering a major blaze as rival brigades of former rebels fought for control of Tripoli’s main airport. A huge cloud of black smoke billowed across the capital’s skyline on Monday and Libya’s government asked for international help to try to contain the disaster. A spokesman for the National Oil Company said the blaze was burning “out of control,” adding that firefighters had withdrawn from the area.
With modern weapons sighting and guidance systems it is impossible for these types of attacks to be accidental. They are deliberate. One may also note that even though it is possible for modern systems to target a particular building or other point on the ground, ballistics and the science of the study of explosions irrevocably state that when such projectiles detonate and explode the explosive percussion and the shrapnel do not magically confine themselves just to the target, but damage and destroy nearby buildings and kill and wound people in the splinter pattern. The term clinical strike is misleading because there is no scientific way exploding projectile damage can be confined to the target alone……………..KT
The Gaza police operations room and a Palestinian health official said separate Israeli airstrikes hit the compound of Gaza City’s main hospital, causing casualties.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Camera crews were prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa Hospital. Health official Ayman Sahabani said several people were wounded in the strike.
Send this to every congressman you know and remind them that THIS will be your deciding factor next election!
An Israeli”soldier” making a crank phone call to a Palestinian hotel in Gaza. The IDF is going to give the hotel a little present on the roof then a big present! I think it is safe to say that the Israelis as a people are just plain PSYCHO!
Colin Powell’s UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as
laboratories and storage areas for Saddam’s massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.
In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.
Today the US Government has released the usual very blurry low-contrast black and white photos with arrows and labels on them to prove Russia is the bad guy. Any time what they release is out of focus, it is to hide the evidence of fakery and the fact is that these latest photos, like Colin Powell’s don’t actually show what the labels say they show. In at least one case, the photo being presented as representing the situation today carries an EXIF time stamp from 2 years ago!
So, think back on all the photos and diagrams the US Government produced to well you that whopper that Iraq had nuclear weapons and was ready to attack, because the lie machine is once again warmed up and in overdrive!
Fool me once…
Bombs this large, dropped on open ground, create craters so large that if they are filled with water, you can go for a swim…………….KT
A few seconds in the Israelis drop a small bomb,10 seconds later they drop the building with a 2,000 pounder. Nobody got out! MURDER!
The 12-hour humanitarian ceasefire gave Gaza residents a chance to return to their homes – or what was left of it – after days of unrelentless bombardments from Israeli fire. More than 100 bodies were pulled out from under the rubble.
Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – Inside Ashraf al-Qudra’s cramped office in Shifa hospital, the phone never stops ringing, with news flooding in of the latest victims of Israel’s devastating 20-day military operation.

Cowell gave $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces last year, but the donation is only now hitting the news cycle, according to YNET News.
As a result, Cowell began receiving images of dead Palestinian children on Twitter and has been accused of helping Israel invade Gaza.
One of the tweets said Cowell has “blood on your hands,” while another comment included a picture of a father holding his dead baby and read: “You donated money to Israel to do this. Now imagine this was your child.
The fact that Gentiles are referred to disparagingly amongst Jews as ‘Goy’ or ‘Goyim’–the Hebrew equivalent of the word ‘livestock’ or ‘cattle’–is one indication that this association between non-Jews and livestock (rams, goats, sheep, etc) used for ritualistic sacrifice has been a fait accompli now for some time. As Israel sinks deeper and deeper into her Judaism and her ‘Jewishness’, and the more powerful that the Jewish community becomes, therefore the more ‘comfortable’ certain political and religious leaders become in voicing ideas that before had to be kept hidden from the Gentile world for the sake of ‘operational security’. Of the various statements made in recent history, few compare in revealing this mindset than that made by Israel’s former Chief Sephardic Rabbi Ovadiah Yusef who stated to wit–
‘Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world, only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat…With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew…’
And the Australian …KT
How Israel uses the US (s)election cycle to plan its attacks on its neighbors.
It is simply a lie that Israel’s slaughter in Gaza is a response to an “unprovoked attack” by Hamas. Not only is it a lie, it is a transparent, brazen lie, whose falsehood is glaringly apparent to anyone who had given even a cursory look at coverage of the Israeli government’s response to the murder of three Israeli teenagers in June.
Germany has advised all citizens currently in Libya to immediately leave the strife-torn country, following measures taken by countries including Britain and the United States.
The truth is that outside Israel, Washington, D.C. and various other Zionist strongholds, David Harris’s worldview is crumbling. And, as the numbers of those who share his viewpoint shrinks, other counter-groups, such as the boycott Israel movement, grow in number. Sooner or later a tipping point will be reached and then things will change and probably do so rapidly. On that day what will David Harris do? Blame it all on anti-Semitism? Take residence at the top of Masada? Or grudgingly seek to make his peace with the Palestinians?,
Egypt’s army said Sunday it has destroyed 13 more tunnels connecting the Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip, taking to 1,639 the overall number it has laid waste to.
Cairo has poured troops into the peninsula to counter a rising insurgency since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year, and its security operation involves the destruction of these tunnels.
The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which is the main power in Gaza, reportedly uses the tunnels to smuggle arms, food and money into the blockaded coastal enclave.
Israel has been waging a military offensive on Gaza since July 8 to halt rocket fire, and it launched a ground assault on July 17 aimed at destroying the network of tunnels.
