“Dad, I’m Dying” – Uruknet 1/17/09

As the firing died down, the family thought their misery was over. But the Israeli soldiers were not finished yet.  “When the soldiers came closer, I thought they will kill me,” said Awaga who faked being dead.

“But they were aiming at my young child,” he said choking at the bitter memory.  One soldier came close to Ibrahim’s body, turning him by his leg and laughing while another fired his gun to the dead boy’s head.  Laughs got louder as they carried the body to a higher place to start their party.

For a whole hour, the father hushed his cries of pain as he watched the Israeli soldiers compete in sniping on his dead son’s body.  “They were using his bullet-ridden, bleeding body as a shooting practice.

Activists disrupt Israel’s PR operation – London Indymedia 1/14/09

Activists disrupted the offices of the British Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM) in central London this morning. The lobby group’s media centre, which is playing a key role in Israel’s public relations operation during the assault on Gaza, was shut down as protesters occupied the building.

Photographs of civilian casualties from Gaza were pasted on to the computer screens of public relations executives, phone lines cut off to halt the organisation’s media rebuttal unit and leaflets thrown out of window on to the main road and handed out to staff pressing them to confront the truth about the human cost of Israeli aggression.

The New York Times and the Gaza crisis: Israeli war propaganda in the guise of news – AtheoNwes 1/13/09

The New York Times is the leading media organ of US liberalism and is closely aligned to the Democratic Party. In recent days it has planted a series of propaganda pieces disguised as news articles, which aim to justify Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.

These articles appear in the context of worldwide revulsion at the criminal methods Israel is using in the densely populated Gaza strip, home to 1.4 million people. So far, more than 900 Palestinians have been killed, about half of them civilians, and thousands more have been wounded in an Israeli air, sea and ground assault that is utilizing advanced weapons supplied by the United States against a virtually defenseless population.

IS ISRAEL EXECUTING HAMAS AND PALESTINIAN PRISONERS? WHO IS DOCUMENTING THE ISRAELI WARCRIMES? – Lataan blog 1/13/09

Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, secretary-general of the Palestinian National Initiative and Qaddoura Fares, head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society, have recently inferred that Palestinian prisoners taken by the Israelis are being executed after capture during the present invasion. There seems to be many unaccounted for fighters who Mr Fares says “…gives the army the opportunity to execute them, throw their bodies in the streets, and claim that they were killed in during clashes”.

Brian Cloughley : Five Little Girls on a Sofa: Gaza’s One-Sided Images – CounterPunch 12/31/08

You wouldn’t know from the western media that Israel’s foreign minister (and would-be prime minister), Tzipi Livni, made a disastrous appearance on al-Jazeera television last week, just as you wouldn’t have seen dreadful pictures of dead children and their screaming distraught mothers in Gaza unless you watch al-J TV, which is almost impossible in the US. Here in France we can receive al-Jazeera, and the images are truly horrific. But Ms Livni doesn’t want us to see them. Nor do most western governments. She declared that “when you show one-sided images from Gaza you’re not helping peace. I understand that pictures which create provocation lead to anger and hostility among the citizens, but we want a better future for this region.” In other words – don’t look at pictures that tell the truth because they will make you angry about people who blast children into ragged fragments. What we don’t see, says Livni, won’t harm us, which is the theme of authoritarian censors through the ages….Livni claimed that prior to the air assault Israel informed all the residents living in the area of the planned strikes and urged them to leave. She was asked “leave for where?” (Where could they go in tiny Gaza, mainly desert, with its 1.5 million people?) and of course had no answer – because the blitz had been kept secret. She is a blatant liar.

She said that Israel is trying to avoid civilian casualties, while “Hamas is looking for children to kill . . . But, unfortunately, in a war . . . sometimes also civilians pay the price.”

Like the price paid by two sisters, Lama and Haya Hamdan, who were in a donkey cart in the northern town of Beit Hanun. They were killed by one of the thousands of US-supplied missiles fired by US-supplied aircraft flown by gallant Israeli pilots who targeted these pesky terrorist donkey carts carrying terrorist children. Then there were “The five Palestinian sisters [who] were fast asleep when a night-time Israeli airstrike hit the next-door mosque in Gaza. One of the walls collapsed on to their small asbestos-roofed home and they were all killed in their beds. The eldest sister, Tahrir, was 17 years old, the youngest, Jawaher, just four . . .” Just a casual paying of the Israeli price.
