Israelis and Palestinians: no equivalence of culpability

Israelis and Palestinians:  
With such a gross imbalance of power, there is no equivalence of culpability

By Dr. Gabor Maté 

Excerpted from the Toronto Star, July 22, 2014

Israeli bombing of the city of Gaza, July 22, 2014

...In Gaza today we find ways of justifying the bombing of hospitals, the annihilation of families at dinner, the killing of pre-adolescents playing soccer on a beach.

In Israel-Palestine the powerful party has succeeded in painting itself as the victim, while the ones being killed and maimed become the perpetrators. “They don’t care about life,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, abetted by Obama and Harper (Canadian Prime Minister), “we do.”

Netanyahu, you who with surgical precision slaughter innocents, the young and the old, you who have cruelly blockaded Gaza for years, starving it of necessities, you who deprive Palestinians of more and more of their land, their water, their crops, their trees — you care about life?

There is no understanding Gaza out of context — Hamas rockets or unjustifiable terrorist attacks on civilians — and that context is the longest ongoing ethnic cleansing operation in the recent and present centuries, the ongoing attempt to destroy Palestinian nationhood.

The Palestinians use tunnels? So did my heroes, the poorly armed anti-Nazi fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto. Unlike Israel, Palestinians lack Apache helicopters, guided drones, jet fighters with bombs, laser-guided artillery. Out of impotent defiance, they fire inept rockets, causing terror for innocent Israelis but rarely physical harm. With such a gross imbalance of power, there is no equivalence of culpability.

Israel wants peace? Perhaps, but as the veteran Israeli journalist Gideon Levy has pointed out, it does not want a just peace. Occupation and creeping annexation, an inhumane blockade, the destruction of olive groves, the arbitrary imprisonment of thousands, torture, daily humiliation of civilians, house demolitions: these are not policies compatible with any desire for a just peace. In Tel Aviv Gideon Levy now moves around with a bodyguard, the price of speaking the truth...

Israeli rabbi: It’s okay to kill innocent civilians and destroy Gaza

By Ami Kaufman  July 22, 2014

Results of Israeli “Operation Protective Edge" as of July 22, 2014

Dov Lior, a racist Israeli rabbi from the West Bank settlement Kiryat Arba, recently posted a Halakhic ruling allowing to kill innocent civilians, after being asked about the “war” (it’s a massacre) in Gaza.

Here are a few lines from the ruling (pictured below):

“The Torah of Israel guides us in all walks of life, private and public, on how to behave during war and also how to keep moral standards.

The Maharal from Prague (Rabbi Judah Loew), in his book Gur Arye, clearly writes that… in all wars the attacked people are allowed to attack fiercely the people from whom the attackers came from and they do not have to check if he personally belongs to the fighters.

Therefore, during war the attacked people are allowed to punish the enemy population in any punishment it finds worthy, such as denying supplies or electricity and also to bomb the whole area according to the discretion of the army minister and not to just simply endanger soldier’s lives but to take crushing deterrence steps to exterminate the enemy.

In the case of Gaza, the Minister of Defense will be allowed to instruct even the destruction of Gaza so that the south will no longer suffer and to avoid harm to our people who have been suffering for so long from the surrounding enemies.”

Any kind of talk about humanism and consideration are moot when speaking of saving our brothers in the south and in the rest of the country and bringing back quiet to our country.” Source

An Israeli tank shell hit the third floor of Al-Aqsa hospital in the central Gaza Strip on Monday, July 21, 2014, killing four people and wounding 16, the Health Ministry said.  "All patients were evacuated and the 100-bed hospital is no longer functioning," a World Health Organization (WHO) statement said on Tuesday after a WHO team visited the site. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), guardian of the rules of war, condemned the attack on the Al-Aqsa hospital which it said had come under "direct fire at least four times”. Warring parties are obliged under international humanitarian law to protect medical personnel, ambulances and facilities, the ICRC said in a statement issued late on Monday.

On the evening of July 21, the Israelis bombed an eight-story apartment building in downtown Gaza City — an area where Israeli officials had urged Gazans to take shelter. The building collapsed as rescue crews were inside, killing more people. The death toll, at least 13, was still being tallied.
Crater where the four-story Abu Jameh house had stood

An Israeli missile leveled a four-story house in the southern Gaza Strip. It also killed 25 members of four Abu Jameh family — including 19 children — gathered to break the daily Ramadan fast together. The situation at the Abu Jameh home, where, survivors said, the family was gathered to break its daily Ramadan fast — a ceremonial meal —  was at a time when Israeli military officials would have known that people were likely to be home.

Of those who lived in the house, only four people survived, three men who had gone to pray, and Tawfik Abu Jameh’s toddler, shielded by the body of his mother. The children killed ranged in age from 4 months to 14 years, and included an adopted orphan whose father had been killed in an Israeli strike.

One of the survivors, Bassam Abu Jameh, lay on a mat with a broken leg, his eyes rimmed with red. His wife, Yasmeen; two brothers; and three children, Batool, 5, Sohaila, 3, and Bassam, 1, had all been killed. “There is nothing left,” he said, pressing his hand to his eyes. “It is the end for us.”

GENEVA, July 22 (Reuters) - Palestinian civilians in densely-populated Gaza have no place to hide from Israel's military offensive and children are paying the heaviest price, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip, saying no ceasefire was near as U.S. and U.N. diplomats pursued talks on halting fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives as the conflict entered its third week.

"There is literally no safe place for civilians," Jens Laerke, spokesman of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told a news briefing in Geneva.

______________

It is something of a miracle that social media is successfully reporting Israeli war crimes compared to 2009, when Israelis launched a major military campaign into Gaza and the Israeli military (IDF) prevented foreign media from entering the territory. Back then, the IDF also managed to block cellphone bandwidth, allowing few cellphone photographs to appear outside Gaza, according to the New York Times.

Israeli Professor: To deter Palestinian fighters rape their mothers and sisters

Israeli Professor Suggests Rape as 'Terror Deterrent'

Mordechai Kedar: Sex Assault on Relatives Will Stop Attacks

By Ori Kashti • July 22, 2014

Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University

(Haaretz) — “The only thing that can deter terrorists, like those who kidnapped the children and killed them, is the knowledge that their sister or their mother will be raped.” This assertion was made by Middle East scholar Dr. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University on an Israel Radio program. “It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East,” added Kedar, of Bar-Ilan’s Department of Arabic.

The program “Hakol Diburim” (“It’s All Talk”) was broadcast on July 1, immediately after the discovery of the bodies of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrah, who were kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank. It dealt, among other things, with the question of how Hamas can be deterred.

“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.”

When Hadar said, “We can’t take such steps, of course,” Kedar continued: “I’m not talking about what we should or shouldn’t do. I’m talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That’s all. That’s the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister’s honor.”

Kedar is also a research fellow at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan, and in the past also served as chairman of the Israel Academia Monitor organization, which is involved in “exposing extremist Israeli academics who exploit academic freedom in order to take steps to deny Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.” The organization is engaged in a battle against professors identified with the left.

In the wake of the publication of his words, feminist activists today sent a letter to Bar-Ilan University president Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz, in which they decried Kedar’s “words of incitement that grant legitimacy to Israel Defense Forces soldiers and Israeli civilians to commit rape, and endanger both Israeli and Palestinian women. Kedar’s words echo expressions that treat rape as a remedial practice, although it is a war crime.”

__________________________

Michael Hoffman's Afterword:

Though it will be claimed by the usual public relations hacks that Prof. Kedar's monstrous rape/deterrent observation is "condemned by the Jewish tradition" (citing, for example, BT Kiddushin 22), there are rabbinic escape clauses which justify rape. First, the rape target must be classified as a zonah (prostitute) or a nokri (hostile alien). The supreme Ashkenazic halachic authority, Rabbi Moses Maimonides, rules that a Judaic soldier may rape this type of female POW (Yefas To'ar) when he is not actively fighting a battle (cf. Hilchos Melachim 8:3). For an explication of this subject consult my book, Judaism Discovered, p. 904.

Courtesy of Maurice Pinay  text from the Meorot theology journal of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinic School on permissible rape:  

— Dov. S. Zakheim, Meorot vol. 6: no. 1 (2006), p. 5. 

Zakheim was Under Secretary of Defense in the administration of George W. Bush, 2001-2004.

One wonders how much of an outcry this rape-as-a-deterrent observation will receive from Michele Obama, from those who denounced Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin, and from big media like FOX News and the New York Times. The Times published a lengthy, front page report on July 13 concerning a small U.S. college that supposedly was negligent in investigating the alleged rape of an intoxicated female student. Let's see what the Times has to say, if anything, about this professor who is on the faculty of Bar-Ilan, the most prestigious Talmudic educational institute in the Israeli state.

It is important that we publicize this news, which helps to reveal the true face of Talmudic-Israel.

1. LETTER FROM IRELAND

Dear Michael,

I have safely received the latest Revisionist History newsletter (no. 73 -- "Masonic America: The Mormon Branch of the Brotherhood"), and what an incredible story. I knew that the Mormons were stinkers of course, but had no idea of the extent of their stinkerdom. Extraordinary to think that they control territory, Utah, that is not much smaller in area than the area of England.

By the way, if ever my subscription runs out and I have not renewed, please, please, badger me. I definitely want to continue being a subscriber into the far distant future! – and (unless I notify you that I simply cannot afford to) it will therefore be because of inefficiency – not dissatisfaction – on my part if ever I do not renew...

-- A subscriber in Ireland

2. WALMART DONATES $3 MILLION TO TALMUDIC RABBIS



Though it is being fronted as a donation to fund support for education reform, Walmart Foundation's $3.1 million gift to the Arab and Chrstian-hating rabbis of the extremist "Agudath Israel" organization is possibly a payoff to keep Walmart in the good graces of the American media and Congress, and whatever sectors of the US economy Agudath Israel may influence. Read the report here.

Two Catholic homosexuals kissing: screenshot from the Pope's official Vatican Radio ("Radio Vatikan") website

Well, it seems the takeover  is complete.

This from Vatican Radio:

Stephan Ackermann, bishop of Trier, is critical of proposals to “heal” homosexuality. There is no ecclesial backing for such initiatives, Ackermann said Wednesday evening in Saabrücken.

No, the bishop's comment is not the issue, just another symptom of what Fr. Dariusz Oko called the "Homoheresy". The problem is how this was presented in the official radio of the Holy See, Vatican Radio (Radio Vaticana): shame has been utterly and completely lost.

What is the point of having a radio, a website, a communications team, if this is what comes out of it? What is the point of it all, if the Church's most senior communications source has become a completely worldly, mundane, immorality-promoting institution? 

The blood of the martyrs of Uganda rises from the earth: they did not die for nothing. They refused to submit to sodomy and forced immorality, thinking of the Kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ. But they did not die for this accursed legion that took over much of the Church.

"Be not deceived: God is not mocked - 
for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap."
Galatians 6:7

* Translation of an excerpt from the article:

Stephan Ackermann, (Roman Catholic) bishop of Trier, is critical of proposals to “heal” homosexuality. There is no ecclesial backing for such initiatives, Ackermann said Wednesday evening in Saabrücken. Not long ago the periodical “Die Zeit” included a report on doctors who advertise being able to change one’s sexual orientation, an approach regarded as a “secret trick” in strongly Christian circles. Ackermann made his statements at roundtable discussion which was organized by the Lesbian and Gay Union of Saar (LSVD). About one hundred persons were in attendance. The two-hour meeting was the first of its kind in Germany. Similar discussions had taken place, on a smaller scale, with gay and lesbian representatives, for example in the diocese of Essen and in the archdiocese of Berlin for the run-up to Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Germany in 2011.

Media beginning to soften up the public on child porn

Techniques for the alchemical transformation of humanity

By Michael Hoffman
www.revisionisthistory.org


July 17, 2014 • Spokesman-Review

As a former reporter for the Establishment media (Associated Press) I am particularly sensitive to indications that the media are using their power to subtly change minds and overcome traditional objections to forms of moral depravity. This usually begins with subtle changes and cues that emanate from executive editors at high levels of the corporate media.

Examine the clipping above. It was published in this morning’s (July 17, 2014) Spokesman-Review newspaper (Spokane, Washington), p. A3. The article concerns the arrest of child pornography supporters (“pedophiles”) including “doctors, lawyers” and ex-police officers.

The subtle processing is found in the second paragraph: “...sensational stories of the sexual abuse of minors regularly headline the tabloids, which some critics accuse of whipping up public hysteria over the issue.” 

Notice the article doesn't say child pornography is harmless; only that it has been “sensationalized” by disreputable “tabloids,” which “whip up public hysteria over the issue.”

Observe that the viewing of child pornography is described as an “issue,” not a crime. The article never refers to it as a crime. Apparently, viewing child pornography is not a sensational transgression in itself. It has been “sensationalized” by disreputable “tabloids.” Too much concern about child pornography is indicative of “hysteria.” 

This article would seem to be the first step in a measured campaign to soften up the American people so that we will approve of the decriminalization of child pornography, just as we were softened up for the decriminalization of sodomy and the legal marriage of sodomites.

This processing is almost always gradual and understated, so as not to frighten the targets of the brainwashing into the realization that they are in fact being conditioned to abandon their traditional morality and “keep up with the times.”

How likely is it that our “free and impartial” media would add to an ADL report on a putative “anti-semitic crime wave," a statement about how “sensational tales of anti-semitism are regularly issued by Zionist organizations which some critics accuse of whipping up public hysteria over the issue.” Imagine the outcry from the Israeli lobby and the thought cops. 

Will there be a preemptive outcry from We the People against what the media are starting to initiate with regard to the international cult of child molestation? You can be sure that within that cult are many extremely powerful people who would be delighted to see enforcement relaxed, as a first step in a  systematic journey toward the social acceptance of child pornography in an increasingly bestial American society.

Israelis slaughter four young Palestinian boys playing on Gaza Beach

Mohammed Baker (aged 9), Ahed Baker (aged 10), Zakaria Baker (aged 10), and Mohammed Baker (aged 11), all from the same extended family. The victims were scrawny fishermen’s kids, running around on the beach, playing in the waves.

Four Young Boys Killed Playing on Gaza Beach
By Anne Barnard And Tyler Hicks 
New York Times | July 16, 2014


GAZA CITY — Four young Palestinian boys were killed Wednesday when two explosions hit a jetty and beach where they were playing at the fishing port of Gaza City, an area that had been considered relatively safe from the intense Israeli bombing campaign of the past nine days.

The Israel Defense Forces acknowledged that it had struck the area. “Based on preliminary results, the target of this strike was Hamas terrorist operatives,” the I.D.F. said in a statement. “The reported civilian casualties from this strike are a tragic outcome.”

The four boys were cousins in an extended family of fishermen who kept their boats at the port.

The Israeli military has been hitting Gaza with bombs and missiles for more than a week, aiming to stop Hamas, the group that controls the territory, and other militants from firing rockets and other munitions into Israel. The first explosion left a small shack burning on the jetty. Several boys could be seen fleeing along the beach. About 30 seconds later came the second blast, and when the dust cleared, three figures lay motionless on the sand. One had most of a leg blown off, his body charred; a few yards away lay a smaller one with curly hair. The two explosions were about 30 seconds apart.

Men came running and scooped up three bodies. A fourth was found in the charred ruins of the shack on the jetty. A grown man, wounded, called for help from inside an outdoor beach cafe, and he too was carried away.

Israel’s military says it has taken extensive precautions to avoid killing civilians. But it has acknowledged, according to Israel Radio, that about half the people in Gaza killed so far were “not involved in terrorism.” Human Rights Watch issued a statement on Wednesday decrying the civilian casualties and demanding that Israel “end unlawful attacks that do not target military objectives.”

A running count kept by United Nations officials shows that of the more than 200 Palestinians who have been killed so far, about 75 percent have been civilians, including more than three dozen children. One Israeli has been killed.

Hamas and other militant groups have fired more than 1,000 rockets into Israel since simmering hostilities erupted into military confrontation on July 8. Most of the Gaza rockets have fallen in open ground in Israel or were destroyed by Israel’s Iron Dome interception system. For its part, Israel has struck houses, offices and farmland in the Gaza Strip with airstrikes, missiles fired from Apache helicopters and shelling from naval gunboats.

The mother of one of the four boys murdered by the Israeli military

An Israeli military spokesman, Motti Almoz, told Israel’s Channel 10 that Israeli forces had fired at “a target near the sea” on Wednesday and that the details were still under review. Alon Ben-David, a senior military affairs journalist with extensive Israeli military sources, said information he had seen indicated that the military had identified the beach shack as belonging to Hamas and fired at it.

Mr. Ben-David speculated that the second blast had been aimed at the children running away, who might have been mistaken for militants. But he added that given the military’s technologically advanced surveillance equipment, “it is a little hard for me to understand this, because the images show that the figures are children.”

The boys were part of the Bakr family, according to relatives who gathered outside the family’s apartment building, wailing and crying. One woman cursed both Israel and Hamas, and another quietly noted that Hamas had killed 10 members of the family in factional infighting.

...Like many Gaza children from large families, the cousins were inseparable and traveled in a pack, playing nearly every day on the beach in normal times, relatives said. But they had been cooped up during nine days of bombardment, said Nasreen al-Bakr, an aunt of Ahed, whose father had beaten him the day before for defying parents’ orders to stay off the beach.

Israeli gunboats patrol just offshore and have periodically fired shells landward. Still, the area near the port has generally been safe, with a row of hotels that are packed with foreign journalists. Some of the journalists gave first aid to another wounded child on the terrace of the Deira Hotel, where the bodies were initially brought.

“What was the fault of these children?” a woman wailed at the family home. “Are they terrorists?”

Ramzi, 8, Mohammad’s brother, said he had tried to tag along when the boys went to catch crabs and check on the family’s boats. But Mohammad apparently considered that the risk of going to the beach, while acceptable for himself, was too much for his little brother.

“He made me go back to the house,” Ramzi said softly. “He was always worried for me.” (End quote from The New York Times)

Relatives of the four Palestinian boys killed by Israelis while playing on the beach in Gaza

"To the best of my understanding, it is not possible to ensure summer vacation, a normal summer for our (Israeli) kids without a ground operation in Gaza.” 

--Avigdor Lieberman, Israeli foreign minister

Whether gallows humor, condescending sarcasm, or moral depravity, Lieberman's statement summarizes Israeli callousness and cynicism: wipe out a people; exterminate.

The idea of forcing a mass evacuation from their homes on threat of death is revisiting the mindset of Naziism.

As a Jew I ask, what has happened to my people, my religion, its ethical teachings, its history of engagement in progressive causes, whether civil rights, labor unionism, antiwar, the nuts-and-bolts of American democracy in action which, absent Jewish participation, is no longer the same, and for the American Jewish community has become a transmogrification of original, indeed primal, humaneness into mass population removal, wholesale bombing of defenseless populations, and now, a center for the disabled?

Lieberman, Netanyahu, etc., what summer vacations do you think Palestinian children look forward to, what "normal summer" when they, their mothers, their fathers are facing death, destruction, loss of home, inadequate medical supplies, blockade?

Except in America, Israel will be known in the world as a Society of Butchers, steeped so deeply in militarism as no longer even able to envision, much less act on, moral choice.

Mass evacuation, so their homes can be destroyed, equals ethnic cleansing.

Human Rights Watch Issues Interim Report on Israeli War Crimes in Gaza

By Michael Hoffman
www.revisionisthistory.org

July 16, 2014 -- A Human Rights Watch report released today cites United Nations data showing that, as of July 14, more than three-quarters of the Palestinians killed by Israeli bombs and tank shells in Gaza have been civilians. The Israelis have killed at least 36 children. Approximately 7,500 Palestinians have been displaced. The Israelis have bombed 1,255 homes in Gaza, destroying most of them.

The Human Rights Watch report investigated four Israeli terror bombings – on the Fun Time Beach Cafe in the southern city of Khan Younis; on a car carrying municipal workers in the Bureij refugee camp; and on two homes where victims included a pregnant woman and small children.

“Israel’s rhetoric is all about precision attacks, but attacks with no military target and many civilian deaths can hardly be considered precise,” Sarah Leah Whitson, the Middle East director of Human Rights Watch, said in the report.

“Recent documented cases in Gaza sadly fit Israel’s long record of unlawful airstrikes with high civilian casualties.”

The report also criticized Israel’s tactic of warning residents to evacuate, saying it “does not make an otherwise unlawful attack lawful” (end quote).

Of course, no Judaic population on earth could be treated in the manner in which the people of Gaza have suffered, without immediate military intervention by the USA, a constant outcry from the western media with daily updates and graphic photos and video of the carnage, and crippling sanctions against the government that perpetrated the bombings.

Why isn't this happening in the case of "Israel"? Because the West is ruled by a Talmudic standard. According to Talmudic Judaism "Jews" have a higher soul, the Neshama HaElyonah. This is a type of soul that goyim, including Palestinians, do not have.

The front page headline in this morning's Wall Street Journal amply reveals this less than fully human status:

"Palestinians Told to Clear Out."

The sub-heading reads:

"Israel Warns Thousands to Leave Northern Gaza as Army Readies Broader Offensive."

This is a population transfer for which Stalin and Hitler have been condemned in no uncertain terms. Now it is a source of pride that the "humane" Israeli military is warning up to 100,000 Palestinian civilians to flee for their lives so the Israelis can flatten their homes to rubble without being accused of war crimes.

Imagine the uproar if the Wall Street Journal headline read, "Jews Told to Clear Out."


The reaction would be in terms of Pogrom! Holocaust!! Bigotry!!! Nazism!!!!

Academics would haunt guilt-ridden goyim with the specter of “a repetition of the antisemitic expulsions which Jew-haters have committed throughout European history."

But to order the Palestinian population out is a Talmudically kosher move undeserving of alarm. The West shrugs its shoulders, mutters a few token criticisms, grumbles about Israeli "intransigence" and otherwise is okay with it. Business as usual.

Human Rights Watch asks us to recall, "...Israel’s long record of unlawful airstrikes with high civilian casualties.” But since there are no museums and not many books or films commemorating those “airstrikes,” few outside the Muslim and Arab world  remember or care about it. Just as one Judaic soul is worth more than a non-Judaic soul, one holocaust is worth more than another. The “Holocaust” motto, “Never Again!” clearly does not apply to Arabs, who the Israelis holocaust time and again to applause from news executives and elite opinion-makers in Britain and the U.S., including its Arab-hating Congress.

Beginning with the carpet-bombing of Beirut in the summer of 1982, the Israelis have killed tens of thousands of Arab civilians in Lebanon and Palestine without sanctions or consequences of any kind. After the Israeli massacre in Jenin, when a U.N. investigation seemed imminent, Israeli leader Shimon Peres blocked it, declaring, “No one judges Israel!”

As long as the Judaic-supremacist spirit of the Talmud rules the West, the terror bombing and the massacres by counterfeit "Israel" will continue unpunished and unrestricted.

If you’re a Palestinian man, woman or child your life isn’t worth a plug nickel.

“The Jews eliminated an entire family"

...Palestinians expressed anger over the previous day’s Israeli strikes on a center for people with disabilities and on a home in an attack that killed 17 members of one extended family....the funeral on Sunday (July 13) for the 17 relatives who died in a bombing late Saturday (July 12) when Israel tried to kill Gen. Tayseer al-Batsh, the Hamas police chief. General Batsh, who was seriously wounded, was visiting his aunt’s house, which was reduced to rubble, neighbors said, by bombs that sent body parts at least 100 yards.

...Local officials and relatives searched Sunday for more bodies before burying the family, including seven children, and a neighbor, in 18 graves dug in the same compound. Mahmoud al-Batsh, 48, a relative, said it was too dangerous now to bury them in the cemetery, which is near the border with Israel in northeast Gaza. “The Jews don’t differentiate between the police commander and ordinary citizens,” he said.

...The attack left scores wounded by shattered glass and explosive compression. There was no warning, residents said; Israeli officials have said they do not warn prime targets whom they are trying to kill.

Munzer al-Batsh, the police commander’s brother and a gardener, said at the scene: “The Jews eliminated an entire family — grandfather, father, mother, even the children, who were sleeping in the homes. They were civilians.”

He said he had heard the bombs but could not see through the smoke and dust. When the air cleared, he said, “there was a three-story house wiped out. I couldn’t remember at first that there was a house there,” he added.

The (Israeli terror bombing) campaign’s death toll among Palestinians was 158, more than half of them noncombatants, and more than 1,100 people have been hurt, the Health Ministry said.

By Steven Erlanger And Isabel Kershner • NY Times • July 13, 2014

[In its Monday, July 14 edition (it does not publish on Sunday), The Wall Street Journal devoted a single paragraph to the massacre of this Palestinian family. The skimpy paragraph was buried inside an article on another topic. No photos of the massacre victims, of course. This is a clear indication of the Talmudic standard of American “journalism." A Palestinian massacre of 17 members of an Israeli family would be front page news accompanied by graphic photos of the victims. The Talmud rules that Palestinians are sub-human and American-Zionist media like The Wall Street Journal treat them as such].

Israelis bomb a clinic for disabled Palestinians, killing two and burning three


Gaza, July 12: Palestinian women mourn for those killed by Israeli terror bombs

Gaza Strip, July 12 —...Israel bombed a mosque, which its aerial photos indicated was harboring a weapons cache, and a center for the disabled, killing two residents and wounding three, as well as a caretaker....The Israeli bombing of the center for the disabled, the Mabaret Palestine Society here in northern Gaza, occurred just before dawn, when a missile crashed through the roof and exploded. Because it was the weekend, only five of the 19 severely disabled residents were at the center...said Jamila Elaiwa...

She spoke at Al Shifa hospital’s burn unit, while she was visiting the wounded, including Mai Hamada, 30, and Salwa Abu al-Qomssan, 53, the caretaker, both of them with severe burns, while two more residents were in intensive care. The dead were identified as Ula Wisha, 31, and Suha Abusada, 39, whose family said she had been born severely disabled and unable to speak...

Ms. Elaiwa, 59, said that her center was well-known in the neighborhood and that it had been in the same building for almost a decade. She said she had no idea why it would be bombed. “No one lived there except us,” she said. “There was no one else in the building.”

At the site, neighbors picked through the rubble of modest medical equipment and scattered children’s books, from the small neighborhood children’s library Ms. Elaiwa ran. There was a seared copy of “Jane Eyre,” condensed, in English with Arabic translation, and an English-language copy of “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.”

Neighbors like Yasir Abu Shoodq, 32, stared up at the sky through the holes the missile cut through the roof and each floor before making a crater in the ground. Children picked up the chunks of sharp steel from the crater and made off with them.

Mr. Abu Shoodq said, and Ms. Elaiwa confirmed, that there had first been a warning rocket, “a knock on the roof,” a few minutes before the missile hit. “But no one understood what it meant,” she said. “No one could imagine the center would be a target for anyone.” In any case, she said, the severity of the residents’ disabilities would have prevented them from fleeing on their own.

...The number of dead in Gaza since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge is 120, according to the Palestinian health ministry; just over half of the dead are considered to have been noncombatants by the United Nations.
