Thank you for making the plight of Palestinian children public. I support Jewish Voices for Peace. I have no idea if it will do any good, but we’ve already had over forty years of this conflict. We can end this. We will end this.

Yep, over 40 years of this conflict: 75 years to be precise.

It is not a conflict, it is war waged by a murderous, high-tech war machine on defenceless people in a concentration camp.

It appears that Germany has returned to its “glorious” past, beating and/or jailing anyone who dares to utter the words “Free Palestine”. Obviously no pro-Palestinian marches are permitted.

Once a Nazi, always a Nazi. Same story; different folks.

Where do they get finance?

Who are at the top of the money pyramid?

I'm pretty sure it's none of the cattle people but there's probably a red shield at the doors of their many fine mansions and seriously plush offices but don't worry, it's all imaginary money + usury that works just fine down on the cattle farm where the unwanted livestock of the world wait for the Money Monsters to decide & execute their fate. The long game began in 1694 AD & was taken over by the Red Shield dynasty after the battle of Waterloo. Softly softly catchee [global] monkey ever since. Great danger awaits us all via their malevolent usurious money system. We need to wake up.

Thanks for pointing out the actual length of this...massacre. The word “war” would imply that both sides have responsibility and military engagement. You’ve explained what you meant by war, so I don’t really blame you...but you’ve seen what questions MSM keep raising about this. It’s easier to hide Israel’s crimes if they label it a war.

Expand full comment

I fully agree this is not a war, it is a senseless butchering while committing a genocide.

My earlier point is the word "conflict", which the MSM, and even some reputable commentators, have used for what has been going since the illegal creation of ZioNAZI Rothschildistan.

That word, more even than the use of the word "war" in this instance, is used to cover up the racist sewer's war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Yep, the genocide will be complete, just like what Germany's 1933-45 Nazis aimed for too.

BTW it is not a conflict, it is total war waged by a murderous high-tech war machine on a defenceless civilian population "protected" by militias with glorified firecrackers.

Therefore, should not Hamas blame the entire Israeli population for not rising up against their genocidal government?

The Hindustan Times is an interesting news source. It’s not in depth but there are a LOT of them.

There are levels to what you can find in the media, so far in my experience it's:

- Mainstream Media: Highly sanitised, mostly of destroyed buildings but sometimes a blurred out or indistinguishable dead person.

- Social Media: Dead bodies but only of the sanitised kind, anything too gory is quickly removed.

- Private Social Media (e.g. Telegram): Absolutely raw and horrific, straight from the people on the ground and nothing is left to the imagination. Israel is BRUTALLY slaughtering people, including children and babies.

Expand full comment

"Israel" is insane and incomprehensible to any rational, reasonable thinking human. I've started to think that Israel's more like a Western Front Company, or Shell Corporation, that decided the Holocaust was a brilliant business idea, and why had they not thought of it sooner? If you've ever encountered anti-Palestinian racism, it's truly an ugly, ugly thing. How Israel (and of course the West) can embrace this Extermination Policy, post-Holocaust, well, that's what it is. What's going on now is not going to end well for Israel, and the problem I'm seeing is that a lot of Israelis are not on board with their stupid Government, which is just a Western Neo-Imperialist Front Organization, but they're going to be thrown "under the bus" just the same, just like the Palestinians...

The Holocaust IS a business, as professor Norman Finkelstein explains in his book "The Holocaust Industry".

Expand full comment

OMG! Was that the wonderful Norman Finkelstein!? I read that book about 10 years ago, which was in the english language library here in Mexico. What an eye opener! Highly recommend if one wants to get the essence of Israeli mentality. Available on Kindle.

Another eye opener from a different perspective: "The Great Holocaust Trial" by Michael A. Hoffman.

Thanks, just bought it. Now to gird my loins and read it. I don't know how much more I can take!

Expand full comment

It is not about death and destruction, so there is nothing revolting about it from that perspective. It does explain how the Jews have been able to milk the Holocaust thoroughly, employing despicable methods like blackmail too. From that view point it is disgusting.

The other good eye opener is The Great Holocaust Trial I referred to a bit higher up.

Expand full comment

Why do the Jewish people get to co-opt the term “Holocaust”?

What about the African slave trade which continued for 500 years? HOLOCAUST. And we’ve yet to pay reparations to the descendants of the slaves who built this country.

What about the wholesale slaughter of the Native American tribes and the theft of an entire continent? HOLOCAUST.

And the United Snakes of IsraHell stood idly by as Pol Pot and Idi Amin perpetrated HOLOCAUSTS against their own people. But who cares; they weren’t WHITE.

Expand full comment

“Why do the Jewish people get to co-opt the term “Holocaust”?”

For 1 simple reason: the Jews are very rich so they own almost all of the media and can pump out their propaganda 24/7 so the ignorant swallow it hook, line and sinker.

They can also prevent other stories from being broached or dealt with in a cursory way.

Expand full comment

But I do think it’s because they are white. Anglos are a deeply racist bunch, so deep that they can’t even recognize it when it’s right in front of them. As one guy bragged on here—we are a tolerant people, he says. Never wondering why they’d have to “tolerate” others if they saw them as equal.

How can you be so sure this will end as well as you suggest. My fear is this will become a broader war, and there is a lot of support for Israel in this country, and I'm not only talking about Evangelical groups who sound insane in their arguments as they support Israel and the genocide they are perpetrating. The House in the US just supported the new speaker in supporting Israel and it's very obvious genocide. In this 21st century America destroyed one Muslim country after another and it went on and on through the Obama/Biden administrations. What I don't understand is why Hamas would engage in such an attack knowing full well that Israel would respond in this fashion. I think there has just been an assumption that Hamas is capable of anything, but I feel something is deeply wrong. In recent times many people have had their homes taken by settlers in the West Bank and no doubt some thousand or more have been displaced, and a dead giveaway Israel is intent in ridding itself of the Palestinians this time around. I wonder why Hamas helped them?

Expand full comment

Because they don't want to wait a 75th year for the world to do something about ethnic cleansing and apartheid besides pay lip service about two state solutions. I guarantee you live in a country that obtained its independence via someone's war. That's the way that's done. There is no real negotiation with oppressors. Not the Nazi ones trying to cleanse Donbass and certainly not the Zionists trying to cleanse Palestine.

Modern Westerners have no idea what racial oppression is like and even less about what it's like when death is a better choice than a life of state sponsored bondage.

Expand full comment

Exactly that’s why Israeli apologists in the west can be so completely flippant about the genocide. They (we) have zero comprehension. Not to be confused for those who do understand and feel nothing but helplessness when their (western) governments chose to stand alongside the genocide state of Israel.

Lady Kasha, those children, and teenagers were not the ones making this decision but those who have lived no doubt a good part of their life if not most. If I were a mother in Gaza I don't want Hamas to make death and life decisions on whether my family gets a chance to grow up and live with hope they'll have a better life. I am disgusted with my countries many wars and have been an activist in the anti-war movement seeing early on my country was willing to kill, kill, kill, and topple countries, but that didn't stop my hope.

Fully agreed with your point. Americans sit here thoroughly propagandized or fully censored if they voice objections. This country never faced

A fully militant aggressor on its shores, wholesale slaughter of civilians, including children, or had to exist in a open air prison with 24/7 surveillance and random assaults from the oppressor. We sit numbly unaware yes and ignorant of the reality taking place. We’re blindly led by the nose to accept the one-sided pro-Israel argument thrown on our faces by the corporatized media....

Thanks. I'll read the whole article tomorrow, well, later in the day. He says, "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political stock within Israel is so low, that the only way he can recover is by making a major step towards the complete genocide of the Palestinian people and the achievement of Greater Israel." Which says that the people of Israel are at present disappointed with Netanyahu, but if he goes forth with the extermination of the Palestinians and establishes a Greater Israel they'll support him. If that is indeed the case what does that say about Israeli's? It's so ironic that they were basically given the land of Palestine, due to the Zionist movement and their claims of prejudice against Jews then followed by WWII and the extermination camps. If indeed that is the case it's disgusting to say the least.

I'm sure that there are many who are not going along with this, but the majority of Israel's are not opposed to this slaughter. The same in the US with all our disgusting wars.

These Evangelicals evidently haven't read the Bible, which says that killing children and shedding innocent blood is an abomination (2 Kings; Proverbs) and that the result will be "desolation of abomination", that is, everyone dead.

There are plenty of contradictions in the bible, given it was written in many different time periods with many different redactors and authors. For every biblical quote one can find - you can find a quote justifying the opposite, including murder. Didn't God instruct Abraham to kill his son?

The stories in it now are over 2000 years old, written for a time and culture that no longer exists. The most important parts of the bible for me has always been the more allegoric stories and symbols representing psychological truths regarding morality and faith. But the stories are often ignored or marginalized - or perverted into something they were never meant to be - by zealots and extremists.

But then again, human history has had just as many secular zealots and extremists as well. The real problem with evil has nothing to do with "God" or "Religion" - it has to do with the human psyche and its growth.

The Biblical Jews (before 70 AD) recognized conversion, adoption, and marriage between Jews and Gentiles, so they must have thought the latter were human. I believe the fanatical nationalism stuff started in the late 19th century. If so, they wouldn't be the only community to have been poisoned by nationalism.

As to the children passed through the fire to Moloch, there are passages which seem to refer to this practice being adopted by Jews from their neighbors, which is why it had to be explicitly forbidden. You'd think people would know better without having to be told.
