The Israeli military has since 2007 punished the whole Palestinian population because the Hamas Party won the 2006 elections. It actually produced figures on how much nutrition could be let in while keeping both children and adults among the Palestinians “on a diet.” US State Department cables revealed by Wikileaks show that the Israelis are deliberately keeping the Palestinians of Gaza just on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe.

The health minister in the Gaza Strip has warned that the territory is on the verge of a major health catastrophe.
Children are risking cholera and worse because they have to walk through raw sewage to get to school. The sewage has flooded the streets in Gaza City because the sewage treatment plant has no electricity. It has no electricity because the Israelis are blockading the strip, including its children (50% of the population). The Israelis are not letting cheap fuel in. Some inexpensive fuel used to come in from Egypt, but the military there has blocked smuggling tunnels leading into the strip from the Sinai Peninsula.
The Israeli military has since 2007 punished the whole Palestinian population because the Hamas Party won the 2006 elections. It actually produced figures on how much nutrition could be let in while keeping both children and adults among the Palestinians “on a diet.” US State Department cables revealed by Wikileaks show that the Israelis are deliberately keeping the Palestinians of Gaza just on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe. As a result, 56 percent of residents are “food insecure.” They aren’t starving but they are just one or two lost paychecks away from starving. This kind of social engineering experiment on human beings (i.e. keeping Palestinians “on a diet”) is unconscionable to anyone in their right mind. It is also illegal in international law to impose collective punishment on an Occupied population. Some 70% of the 1.7 million Palestinians in Gaza are from families expelled from what is now southern Israel by the 1948 ethnic cleansing campaign of Jewish settlers. Many could walk home in an hour or two but they are kept in refugee camps by the Israeli military. They are besieged on three sides by Israel and on one by Egypt, whose officers are cooperating with the Israeli-imposed blockade.

“A Palestinian official in Gaza City , Gaza Strip, said that treatment plant sewage is overflowing into the streets because of the shortage of electricity needed for waste treatment . Gaza officials said that the spill could harm the environment and affect 20,000 people. The smell is rancid and the water is lapping at car tires. Gaza has been suffering from fuel shortages and power cuts that cause hours of outages. The electricity brownouts are due to closure by Egypt of smuggling tunnels on the border with the Gaza Strip , which provides fuel to the Palestinian territories. The transfer of higher-priced fuel prices by the Israelis continued.”
BBC Monitoring quotes from the Israeli Arabic press:

“Al-Ittihad [organ of the Communist Party] [From editorial] “As though the accumulated tragedies which the people of Gaza Strip live as a result of the occupation, its crimes and siege, are not enough, power cuts for 18 hours a day constitute a tangible danger to life, safety and health of Gazans… The power cuts are caused by a fuel crisis… The matter has reached the extent of threatening lives of premature babies in hospitals and poverty stricken quarters where the evil has reached the extent of sewage water flooding streets and homes… It is the duty of those with a conscience to make a resounding call in order to save the people of Gaza from this killing darkness, killing siege and killing silence…”

  2. The Israelis have no responsibility for Gaza at all now.

    Other than to keep missiles from there being launched at them.

    The Gazans can think of nothing else to do but turn the place into a launching pad.

    Not even the Egyptians want them.

    You should send them some food packages if you are so concerned. Make a donation. Though your money will likely end up in Switzerland or Paris.

    More of the same.

    Now the Israeli will post links to the opulent apartments and compounds, the black market markets.
    Then they will tell us how good the people in Gaza have it.

    The plight of the people of Gaza is well document.
    Just not well publicized in the US media.

    Leslie Moonves does not think it consequential content.
    Or does not think it is politically correct or expedient to show the US audience the fruits of their labors blossoming in Palestine.

  4. Power outages in Gaza cause sewage to overflow into streets

    A Palestinian official says sewage from a treatment plant is overflowing onto the streets in the Gaza Strip because of a shortage of electricity needed to process the waste.

    Saed al-Atbash of the Gaza City wastewater department says the spillage could harm the environment and affect 20,000 people.

    The liquid was submerging the tires of passing cars and smelled rancid.

    Gaza has been enduring fuel and electricity shortages that have caused hours-long outages.

    The shortages are due to political infighting as well as Egypt's closure of smuggling tunnels along the border with Gaza that provided fuel to the Palestinian territory. Egypt also has halted transfers of Qatari-funded fuel because of militant attacks on Egyptian security forces in the lawless Sinai Peninsula.

    Higher-priced Israeli fuel transfers are continuing.

    6. From Wiki -

      A study carried out by Johns Hopkins University (U.S.) and Al-Quds University (in Abu Dis) for CARE International in late 2002 revealed very high levels of dietary deficiency among the Palestinian population.
      The study found that 17.5% of children aged 6–59 months suffered from chronic malnutrition. 53% of women of reproductive age and 44% of children were found to be anemic.

      After the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip health conditions in Gaza Strip faced new challenges.


      So, even before i went to total shit, one in five, six of the children weren't gettin' enough food.
      Can't blame Hamas, for that. Israel was still inside the walls, in 2002. Large and in charge.

    November 14, 2013

    GAZA — Children waded through sewage submerging the streets of a central Gaza neighborhood on Thursday, a day after one of the blockaded Palestinian enclave's largest waste water treatment plants stopped for lack of fuel.

    Fetid muck, which bubbles up from manholes and overflows from the idle plant when waste goes untreated, could soon spill into the homes of tens of thousands more residents in downtown Gaza City, officials and residents said.

    Egypt's months-long crackdown on cross-border smuggling tunnels that used to bring fuel in cheaply has already forced Gaza's only power plant to stop, meaning two weeks of daily 12-hour blackouts for the territory's 1.8 million residents.

    “This is the start of a catastrophe and unless the world listens to our cries, a real disaster may hit Gaza and its people,” Gaza municipality's Sa'ad El-Deen Al-Tbash said.

    “This is a humanitarian, not a political issue. Gaza's children did nothing to deserve being stuck in sewage,” he told Reuters.

    Gazan municipality officials said the treatment plant served 120,000 residents. They warned that other waste water facilities may soon run out of petrol to fuel generators.

    Along one street, passersby covered their noses, and some residents driving donkey carts helped those slogging through pools of waste.

    Egypt's closure of most of the estimated 1,200 tunnels run by the Islamist Hamas group has virtually stopped Egyptian fuel coming into Gaza, forcing Palestinians to buy Israeli imported petrol at double the price - 6.7 shekels ($1.9) a liter.

    “Year after year you sit in Kipling-haunted little Clubs, whisky to right of you, Pink’un to left of you, listening and eagerly agreeing while Colonel Bodger develops his theory that these bloody Nationalists should be boiled in oil.”

    What was the real extent of Burma’s spell over Orwell’s mind?
    It was explored in depth by Emma Larkin in her book “Finding George Orwell in Burma,”
    in which she makes a sinisterly compelling argument. Orwell’s great trilogy of novels (“Burmese Days,” “Animal Farm” and “1984″),
    she contends, presciently track the development of Burma —

    a colonial society transformed, through independence and the socialist military coup in 1962, into a version of “Animal Farm,” and then “1984.”

    Fortunately, the evolution continues with recent reforms and the 2010 release from house arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi,
    the famous dissident and now opposition leader.

    Orwell was posted to the Irrawaddy Delta in 1924 and spent his days doing crime-scene forensics and surveillance work,
    a job that gave him an invaluable insight into how police states work.
    But the monotonous, disorienting plains may also have shaped him in darker ways.
    Burma was one of the most violent parts of the British Raj. Dacoits, or armed gangs, roamed its waterways, visiting terror on the populace.

    1. As I wandered every night through the heart of Burma’s old colonial city
      — known in Orwell’s day as Rangoon —
      down the length of Merchant Road and the wide avenues dripping with interwoven trees,
      I sensed how that long-dead society with its secret police and its neurotic surveillance bureaucracy
      had given rise directly both to the authoritarian government of today and Orwell’s masterpiece of yesterday.

      But the verdant capital, to which officials like Orwell longed to return after lengthy stints in the jungle, remains alluring.
      “Oh, the joy of those Rangoon trips!” as Flory puts it in “Burmese Days.”

      “The rush to Smart and Mookerdum’s bookshop for the new novels out from England,
      the dinner at Anderson’s with beefsteaks and butter that had travelled eight thousand miles on ice, the glorious drinking-bout!”


      I couldn’t find Anderson’s and its beefsteaks — it has long disappeared, or perhaps it has been renamed.

      Still, the British buildings remain, with their curious resemblance to the fictional London slums described in the opening pages of “1984,”
      “sordid colonies of wooden dwellings like chicken houses”
      except that they are also monumental, lovely and haunted.
      Often painted aquamarine and dark liver-red, garnished with creeping moss and ferns, and adorned with dripping laundry,
      they are the ruins of an older city that is still alive — accidentally beautiful things preserved by failure.

      Around the corner from the Strand, I often passed a pale gray columned classical European building,
      flying a state flag out front and bearing the Orwellian label Bureau of Special Investigations.
      A man was asleep on the porch, his head resting on a tray of cauliflowers.

    There are real differences in the fundamental approach to Egypt between Susan Rice and John Kerry

    Nevertheless, officials and experts said the administration’s Egypt policy is hampered not only by internal tensions but also by being ad hoc and reactive, without a long-term strategy dictated by President Obama.

    In Egypt, officials are receiving diverging messages from the U.S. government’s various parts, causing confusion as they try to decide how to react to recent U.S. actions

    They are getting different messages from different people in Washington. There is confusion in Egypt as to what is actually U.S. policy,” the source said. “There is a vagueness and an unclear policy.”

      B'TSELEM - The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories was established in February 1989 by a group of prominent academics, attorneys, journalists, and Knesset members. It endeavors to document and educate the Israeli public and policymakers about human rights violations in the Occupied Territories, combat the phenomenon of denial prevalent among the Israeli public, and help create a human rights culture in Israel.

      B'Tselem in Hebrew literally means "in the image of," and is also used as a synonym for human dignity. The word is taken from Genesis 1:27 "And God created humans in his image. In the image of God did He create him." It is in this spirit that the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "All human beings are born equal in dignity and rights."

      As an Israeli human rights organization, B'Tselem acts primarily to change Israeli policy in the Occupied Territories and ensure that its government, which rules the Occupied Territories, protects the human rights of residents there and complies with its obligations under international law.

    Israel became a member of the nuclear club in 1976.

    The Sadat-Begin accord was 1978. No attacks since then.
    *****

    The great weight of opinion is that Israel had nuclear weapons before 1973.

    Here, for instance -

    "The Dimona nuclear facility was completed in 1960. Those same foreign reports say Israel had several dozen nuclear weapons in October 1973, as well as the means to deliver them: French-made Mirage and U.S.-made Phantom aircraft and the Jericho missile, an Israeli improvement on a French model. All of these, the reports said, were at full readiness.

    Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh called his book on Israel's nuclear program "The Samson Option." The implication is that Israel would use atomic weapons if it viewed itself as facing certain, imminent destruction.

    If these reports are accurate - and the documents released this week do not confirm them, but possibly only hint at them through portions blacked out by the military censor - this would be neither the first nor the last time Israel's leaders have discussed their so-called "doomsday weapons."

    International researchers have posited that Israel had a nuclear device even before the 1967 Six-Day War."

  18. I recall when Deuce asked us if we believed the unemployment numbers put out before the 2012 election - most did not -

    >>>>Census ‘faked’ 2012 election jobs report
    By John CrudeleNovember 18, 2013 | 8:06pm

    In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.

    The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.

    And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.

    Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.

    And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today

    “He’s not the only one,” said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.

    The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.<<<<

    Looks like an assault or battery to me.

    >>Assault and Battery

    Two separate offenses against the person that when used in one expression may be defined as any unlawful and unpermitted touching of another. Assault is an act that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent, harmful, or offensive contact. The act consists of a threat of harm accompanied by an apparent, present ability to carry out the threat. Battery is a harmful or offensive touching of another.

    The main distinction between the two offenses is the existence or nonexistence of a touching or contact. While contact is an essential element of battery, there must be an absence of contact for assault. Sometimes assault is defined loosely to include battery.

    Assault and battery are offenses in both criminal and Tort Law; therefore, they can give rise to criminal or civil liability. In Criminal Law, an assault may additionally be defined as any attempt to commit a battery.

    At Common Law, both offenses were misdemeanors. As of the early 2000s, under virtually all criminal codes, they are either misdemeanors or felonies. They are characterized as felonious when accompanied by a criminal intent, such as an intent to kill, rob, or rape, or when they are committed with a dangerous weapon.

    Intent

    Intent is an essential element of both offenses. Generally, it is only necessary for the defendant to have an intent to do the act that causes the harm. In other words, the act must be done voluntarily. Although an intent to harm the victim is likely to exist, it is not a required element of either offense. There is an exception to this rule for the attempted battery type of criminal assault. If a defendant who commits this crime does not have an intent to harm the victim, the individual cannot be guilty of the offense<<

      Well, not quite all.

      We already know that Israel is exploiting Palestinian oil reserves in the West Bank. What we haven't seen much reporting on are the roadblocks that Israel has been putting up to Gaza's exploitation of natural gas formations in Gaza territorial waters.

      By late June, Israel was tapping into the little known Noa gas reserve in the Mediterranean off the coast of Gaza. Previously, Israel had “refrained from ordering development of the Noa field, fearing that this would lead to diplomatic problems vis-à-vis the Palestinian Authority”, according to the Israeli business daily Globes. The Noa reserve, whose yield is about 1.2 billion cubic metres, “is partly under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority in the economic zone of the Gaza Strip” - but Houston-based operator Noble Energy apparently “convinced” Israel’s Ministry of National Infrastructures that their drilling would “not spill over into other parts of the reserve.”

      But the Gaza Marine gas reserves - about 32km from Gaza’s coastline - are unmistakeably within Gaza’s territorial waters which extend to about 35km off the coast. Israeli negotiations with the Palestinian Authority (PA) over the gas reserves have stalled for much of the last decade since their discovery in the late 1990s by the British Gas Group (BG Group). The main reason for the failure of negotiations was Israel’s demand that the gas should come ashore on its territory, and at below market price.

  25. What Israeli Historians Say About 1948 Ethnic Cleansing
    By Charley Reese


    In an article in the Ha’aretz newspaper, Danny Rabinovitz wrote,
    “What happened to the Palestinians in 1948 is Israel’s original sin...Between the 1950s and 1976, the state systematically confiscated most of the land of its remaining Palestinian citizens.”

    Shahak stated in his article,
    “In this context let me mention the pioneering work of Erskin Childers [Irish journalist].
    Childers was first to show that the Zionist claim that Arab propaganda had called on the Palestinians to run away from their homes was a gross lie.
    He inspected all broadcasts [the BBC recorded them and kept transcripts as did the American government] of the Arab radios of the time to find that no such call had ever been made.”

    
    Finally, this quote from the diary of Yitzhak Tabenkin, a charismatic leader of the kibbutz movement. In his diary, Tabenkin stated,
    “the ideals of Hitler which I like:
    ethnic homogeneity,
    the possibility of exchange of ethnic minorities;
    the transfers of ethnic groups for the sake of an international order which for me are a particularly valuable feature.”

    No wonder some people prefer myth to truth.

  26. In our political argument abroad, we minimize Arab opposition to us.
    But let us not ignore the truth among ourselves.


    I insist on the truth, not out of respect for scientific but political realities.
    The acknowledgement of this truth leads to inevitable and serious conclusions regarding our work in Palestine…
    let us not build on the hope the terrorist gangs will get tired. If some get tired, others will replace them.
    A people which fights against the usurpation of its land will not tire so easily…
    it is easier for them to continue the war and not get tired than it is for us...

    The Palestinian Arabs are not alone. The Syrians are coming to help.
    From our point of view, they are strangers; in the point of law they are foreigners;
    but to the Arabs, they are not foreigners at all …

    The centre of the war is in Palestine, but its dimensions are much wider.
    When we say that the Arabs are the aggressors and we defend ourselves — this is only half the truth.

    As regards our security and life we defend ourselves and our moral and physical position is not bad.
    We can face the gangs... and were we allowed to mobilize all our forces we would have no doubts about the outcome...

    But the fighting is only one aspect of the conflict which is in its essence a political one.
    And politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves.
    Militarily, it is we who are on the defensive who have the upper hand but in the political sphere they are superior.


    The land, the villages, the mountains, the roads are in their hands.
    The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down,
    and in their view we want to take away from them their country, while we are still outside.

    They defend bases which are theirs, which is easier than conquering new bases...
    let us not think that the terror is a result of Hitler's or Mussolini's propaganda —
    this helps but the source of opposition is there among the Arabs.

      "I don't understand your optimism," Ben-Gurion declared.
      "Why should the Arabs make peace?
      If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel.


      That is natural: we have taken their country.
      Sure, God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them?
      Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, it's true, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them?

      There has been antisemitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault?

      They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country.
      Why should they accept that?
      They may perhaps forget in one or two generations' time, but for the moment there is no chance.
      So, it's simple: we have to stay strong and maintain a powerful army.
      Our whole policy is there. Otherwise the Arabs will wipe us out.

    THE MUFTI OF JERUSALEM: ARCHITECT OF THE HOLOCAUST

    by PAMELA GELLER

    >>
    The Mufti, whom his nephew Yasser Arafat called “our hero,” is famous for his fanatical Jew-hatred. During World War II, the Mufti lived in Berlin, where he met Hitler and traveled in top Nazi circles (he even stayed in Hitler’s bunker toward the end of the war). Among his close friends was Adolf Eichmann, who is commonly thought to be the architect of the Holocaust. Journalist Maurice Pearlman, author of the 1947 book The Mufti of Jerusalem, said that the Mufti advised Eichmann on the best ways to persecute Jews.

    Hitler gave the Mufti a radio station, which al-Husseini used to preach Nazism and genocide in Arabic. In one of his broadcasts, the Mufti exhorted Arabs:

    According to the Muslim religion, the defense of your life is a duty which can only be fulfilled by annihilating the Jews. This is your best opportunity to get rid of this dirty race, which has usurped your rights and brought misfortune and destruction on your countries. Kill the Jews, burn their property, destroy their stores, annihilate these base supporters of British imperialism. Your sole hope of salvation lies in annihilating the Jews before they annihilate you.<<

    I checked out this WaPo piece just to see if there was anything new. There wasn't. However, I did glance at the comments and this one caught my attention since it parallels my views to a large degree on Obama and liberal elitism.

    I Think, Therefore I Scare the DNC
    11/16/2013 11:45 PM EST

    I'm from the last generation before the digital revolution. That means pens, pencils, erasers, typewriters, libraries, long division, mimeographs, T-squares, slide-rules, and an emphasis on proper English as a defense against the root cause of most conflicts, misunderstanding. In other words, we were taught how TO think, not WHAT to think.

    Obama's talking to the Twitter twits, an entire generation raised on the belief that conversations must be kept to 140 characters or less. These people never use the internet to perform research or to fact-find, to them it is for gaming, shopping, memes, and social media. They have the attention span of a Tweet. Those are the easiest people for the demagogues to control. They've been indoctrinated into political correctness to the point where racism is not a general term applicable to bigots of all ethnicities, but a term specific to white people and whichever minority we're oppressing at the moment.

    They are so gun-shy about being labeled a "racist", they take it overboard in the other direction. They are uber-enlightened and so socially tolerant that they don't even QUESTION anything he does. "He's biracial and to prove how open-minded I am, I will never criticize him because I trust this black (but not too black for Liberals) man implicitly and aren't I just so much better than the RACISTS who dare question him!"

    Simple messages for simpletons. Short, sweet, catchy and rythmic, and when confronted with facts, simply yell "Tea Party Terrorist", "Racist", "Christian Right-Winger" and they'll leave.

    The intellectual Liberals understand with a wink and a nod that lying to the minions is necessary. "They are helpless and incapable of coming to the correct (liberal) conclusions and we needn't cause undue stress to their tiny minds." So they lie their tails off and work the mob with soundbites because in the end, we'll fall to our knees and thank them for us for their omniscient foresight.

    The American League of Lobbyists has made it official, approving a new name for the group that doesn’t mention the word “lobbyists.”

    As The Post reported last month, leaders of the association said they wanted to make the move because their business has been changing. These days, they explained, lobbyists aren't just trying to shape legislation – they're also into grass-roots organizing, public affairs and other sorts of politics and advocacy.
