    I sometimes find it difficult to remember that up until 9/11 despite neo liberalism's affect on our societies, certainly in the UK we still intended on making the world an ever more humanitarian place. When there were problems we believed in talking not killing. It was a very different world. Now I wonder if we will still be here in ten years but if we are it will I believe be a far more devilish world than even now. We have seen the West go from a position where it believed in human rights to one where it will support the worst inhumanity.

    Gaza is one place where this has been witnessed and a place where the fear is that the time is getting ready for what many in Israel were wanting in 2014, a genocide, possible putting some in concentration camps before expelling them.

    “Concentrate” and “exterminate”: Israel parliament deputy speaker’s Gaza genocide plan

    Avi Shlaim writes in this essay about the beginning of the West's, certainly the US's approval of Israel treating the people of Gaza in an inhumane way - ironically a time when many Western Jews realised they could no longer stay quiet about the actions of Israel.

    Israel has been testing whether there is any morality left in the West this Summer gunning down Palestinian civilians including the old, the disabled and children as well as medics and Press and while the US might even applaud it, the EU and no one else for instance the UN has done anything to stop it bar words.

    It looks like we may have once again reached the point where we believe there is nothing wrong in genocide
    Something really bad is being prepared for the Palestinians in Gaza

    I was reading an American Indian recently saying that the problem with the West is that it has forgotten it's Spirituality - Spirituality, not Religion please note and indeed I believe that is true, The West has shut down its heart and does not realise that it is the one now carrying the banner of master of inhumanity. I don't think we will survive this madness but it we did that is how we will be seen.

    I would expect no less a projection from you. No ability to answer. Just projecting yourself as a personal attack, as usual. Do not expect a further reply from me.

    So Israel is just out gunning down whoever they want, huh.

    Israel uses great restraint on shooting anyone.

    Rockets come out of Palliland, and they do nothing until they just have to act.
    The Pallies use human shields for propaganda purposes, hoping the children get killed.

    Nothing is being prepared for the Gazans other than the defense of Israel.

    You fail to mention that in every instance, it is the Gazans who attacked first.
    Is there a reason for that.

    Israel expects in time people to forget what she did to the Palestinian people, just like Britain expected the Irish to and the US believes the Indians have...but they never do.

    Here is Red Crow expressing his solidarity with his Irish Friends. (second half of video)



    Of course that was a good while ago. Nowadays it is much easier for those oppressed to be in touch. Those protesting at Ferguson said the people who helped them the most was the Palestinians. Not surprising. US Police are taught how to deal with their 'citizens' well certainly their minorities by the Israelis using the techniques they use on the Palestinians, and of course the same military gear against civilians

    Now the country where the root of the policy of treating human beings this way emanates from is involved in self destruction

    and karma begins to play



    In the dead of last night, hoping everyone was sleeping, BBC News24 put out a small program on what Israel has been doing to the people of Gaza since March of last year. Of the thousands of children and youths with life changing injuries, and of course around 250 dead, those being women, children, the old, youth, the disabled, the press and medics, all because they had the audacity to do what they have every right to do under international law - to protest that Israel does not allow them to return to their land which she is living in - having thrown them out of their homes when they were doing nothing except getting on with their day. They were not fighting. Israel simply believed she had the right to throw poor people off their land, out of their homes and take it for themselves. By International Law Israel does not. The video made sure it put what Israel wanted us to hear and made it sound on an equal footing to that of those who are being murdered and maimed for life for protesting about their rights under International Law not being fulfilled. How on earth did this farce come about. It would be like someone has committed a murder and the court is told they have committed the murder but then they are told whatever the murderer wants them to hear - for instance he absolutely had to for his life..as..if..that..was..true and him saying that is treated as equal 'truth' to the known facts of the murder.

    They were also pointing out how Gaza cannot manage to look after all who need medical attention with this mass killing and maiming. A new born baby died while they were filming. She did not get permission to go to where she could get help to save her life in time. Likewise now people in Gaza are dying all the time because they do not get permission to go to where they need to go for chemotherapy and other serious medical problems - some are very young. People loose legs because they do not have the ability to save them in Gaza, not least due to the lack of electricity and usable water. Israel deliberately destroyed their one power plant in 2014 and since then doing things like sanitising sewerage has been regularly impossible, and Israel again against International Law will not let these people travel to the West Bank for treatment to save their legs. Several athletes have lost their legs....and why is Israel able to act like this against International Law in the modern world - well of course because she is supported by the people who did the same to the Indians in the US and indeed by those who did similar in Canada and Australia. They help and support Israel doing the wrongs which they did, but which they did before we believed we were civilised human beings with humanity and consciences, when there was no International Law against acting with such inhumanity - shooting to death and maiming for life people because they dare to protest about Israel harming them by refusing to obey International Law.

    They all hope eventually people will forget. They never will.
