Day 16 of war crimes!!

thepalestineyoudontknow:

After israel committed AlShja’yaa massacre two days ago which resulted in the death of more than 70 people in just one day and more than 80000 people fled their homes escaping the israeli bloody war machine .

Residents of the neighborhood took shelter in UN schools , Churches , mosques and other houses , well basically they kinda escaped death to death! israel bombed all of these places and not even being a patient at a hospital  or dead could have stopped israel from bombing you!

Till now , at least 600 people were killed but that’s not all of it : thousands injured , tens of houses destroyed and the psychological mark on Gaza’s surviving children. Also see : we’re going through hell ,

Not like its not already so freaking miserable but probably , the injured won’t find medicine and the houses won’t be rebuilt due to lack of pretty much everything because of the continued blockade for more than 7 years!

But still , the spirit of the people in Gaza demanding justice and freedom are an example of heroism for the ‘free world’.

The fact that this time , israel is losing at the time israeli war machine thinks that winning is achieved on the bodies of children , racist comments , ’ death to Arabs’ marches and calls to rape Palestinian women : losing the battle because it couldn’t make Palestinians give up the hope , Gaza resist by every possible way . People of the world have shared the suffering : international movements to boycott israeli occupation , protests nearly in every city of the world and even losing the battle in media ( see : Why Israel is losing the social media war over Gaza and Is Israel losing the American media war? ) . 

Glory to Palestine ,to the people standing beside Palestine and to those who share the truth about israeli occupation.

Another massacre is still ongoing :Last and till this moment Khoza’a, esatern Khanyounis is totally besiged, bodies scattered in the streets, no ambulances allowed. AJA reporter says it’s even worse the Shujaiya.

5:40pm Sunday, July 20 : The words of Mark Regev reach my unbelieving ears. I look outside and see huge mountains of thick grey smoke, the same smoke that has engulfed Gaza for the last 12 days, the same smoke that has blocked out the sun and the blue Mediterranean Sea for the last 24 hours. This spokesman of the apartheid Israeli regime is justifying the killing of Palestinian civilians in Shujayea because the most “moral” army in the world dropped pamphlets to tell people to leave their homes before they bombed. “Leave your homes or we will kill and rape you” - that’s what the Haganah and the Stern Gang told my parents in 1948; my parents died dreaming of returning to their Zarnouqa. There was no satellite television then, no Facebook, no Twitter, no cell phones, no way to tell the world what was happening to them. So much technology, so much communication, so many words, so little action, so little change. Gaza oh my Gaza! Palestine, oh my Palestine! My land of sad oranges!

life under occupation #1

Palestinians getting killed nearly everywhere in Palestine, you don’t know for sure that if you left your house you will come back .

Maybe its so selfish of me to think about this while I don’t live in Gaza but I am feeling that sense of insecure , it’s becoming really uncomfortable to hear abnormal sounds in the outside .

Settlers are gone wild, you may get shot while in walking in the street for no reason.

The only funny thing here that israelis and their media crying over being ‘scared’ of the rockets when they have all of these advanced ways for protection ; not a luxury that people in Gaza have.

I only pray to God to make it less painful for my people in Gaza when looking at the fact that israel is unstoppable, its war machine is on and no one seems to know how to turn it off!

I pray God to make them stronger, its so hard but we have no choice, occupation makes you sacrifice; and we know that it won’t be lost. The least Palestinians can do to them to free the land that they died for its freedom.

Another massacre happening now in Gaza!

In Koza’a area in khan younis , a ground invasion in the area.

I’m watching Palestine today channel , there’s people from the area on the phone : one said that they’re standing on the ruins of a house , he sees a body of a child and an injured women - screaming sounds in the background - help was just able to get in to the area .

Another one (a resident in the area)  wrote a status on Facebook ’ the next door house was hit directly by an F-16  , there’s injures and help can’t get here yet - there’s snipers all over the place and no electricity ‘

Earlier tonight , Algerian hospital in the same area was evacuated after it was hit by a missile.

You know whats really weird?


that I as a Palestinian have never thought or really realized the “relation” between Islamophobia and the Palestinian cause in westren people thinking , that’s really naive of me maybe or just maybe because as someone who lives the situation never thought of it because simply Palestinian resistance wings have a one specific goal to achieve which is the liberation of Palestine not some sick delusion that people say they have of invading the world in the name of Islam.

What people need to understand that this cause is about everything but religion not Islam not Judaism , its about a colonization greed of the land.

Palestine was always and will still be a great example of coexistence.

Maybe will do some researches to respond to this “relation “

I can’t even handle the amount of stupidity in the people who justify israeli crimes , you realize that when you do this you have admitted the crime while your excuses make it even worse.
Have mercy.

Chile Cuts Tie With Israel.

It isn’t the first Latin American state to take a strong stance on the issue. In 2009, Venezuela severed diplomatic ties with Israel altogether and Bolivia limited them in the wake of Operation Cast Lead. In 2010, Nicaragua suspended ties and Ecuador recalled its ambassador after the raid on the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza. Cuba broke diplomatic ties in 1973 – and also contributed directly to the Palestinian liberation struggle by training PLO and PFLP fighters. By stark contrast to the European Union, firm responses to Israeli violence are commonplace in Latin America, particularly among its left-wing states.

Many have good reason – Israel sold arms to the military juntas and right-wing contras that repressed popular uprisings in the region throughout the 1970s and ‘80s.

But Chile is a special case. It is home to the largest Palestinian population outside the Middle East, a little-known and rarely discussed fact. Around half-a-million Chileans claim Palestinian roots following waves of emigration which began in the nineteenth century but accelerated rapidly in the twentieth as Palestinians were ethnically-cleansed from their homeland.

The majority of Chile’s Palestinian community are of Christian descent, many originating from the towns around Jerusalem. With the exception of Taybeh and Beit Jala few of these survived the Nakba and decades of colonisation since. Today, according to Bernard Sabellaof Bethlehem University, there are more Palestinian Christians in exile than in the region itself.

Those in Chile have their traditional home in Patronato, Santiago’s Palestinian quarter, with its Orthodox Cathedral of San Jorge, Arab kebab skewers and nargila. They also have a football club called Club Deportivo Palestino – whose ultras call themselves Intifada. Twice champions of the Chilean Primera División they currently lie fifth with half the season remaining. Earlier this year Palestino released a jersey which used a map of historic Palestine as the number one on the back of the shirt, and kept this map on their latest jersey despite league censure.

Chile continues to take refugees from the Palestinian diaspora which Israel refuses to grant a right to return home. In 2008 it received over 100 refugees from Iraq who had been displaced by America’s occupation.

Against this backdrop a cross-party delegation from the Chilean parliament met with their Foreign Minister on Monday to demand action against Israel. They included the Communist Party’s Camila Vallejo, famed for leading mass student demonstrations in recent years, as well as Palestinian-Chileans such as Fuad Chahin of the Christian Democrats.

Michele Bachelet’s centre-left government condemned Israel’s aggression against the Gaza Strip last week but after Monday’s negotiations congressman Patricio Vallespin confirmed that the government had also frozen its free trade agreement. The Vice-President of the Senate Eugenio Tuma added that there was a commitment to take objections to the UN and to state “in the strongest possible terms”that Israel “must halt the killing of civilians that is happening in the Palestinian territories.”There were also talks about the future of the Chilean embassy in Tel-Aviv.

Meanwhile, the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs sided with Israel in the Irish parliament yesterday and Tánaiste Joan Burton today refused attempts by Sinn Féin, Fianna Fáil and the Socialist Party to have the issue debated – brushing it off to committee and went on holidays for two months.

This marks a considerable deterioration in the position of the Irish state in relation to Israel’s occupation. When Micheál Martin served as Minister for Foreign Affairs he showed strong support for Gaza, calling its blockade a “medieval siege”, condemning Israel’s intervention on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, twice visiting the Gaza Strip and penning op-eds in the New York Times about the hardship Israel’s policies were causing there.

Across the European Union, Israel’s biggest trading partner, the response to the latest massacre in Gaza is much the same as Ireland’s Fine Gael-Labour government. Yesterday EU leaders said Israel should kill Palestinians “proportionately” and repeated the propaganda that this latest operation was an act of self-defence. Sweet-heart trading dealsremain in place, as do multi-billion euro military partnerships.

While South African leaders are repeating calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel’s modern Apartheid, Latin America shows the way(x)

even when israelis chant “death to Arabs” or just address us Palestinians as just Arabs, they’re taking away a part of our identity and right in in Palestine.sarcasm!

we’re Palestinians and Arabs not only Arabs.

A cease fire that doesn’t at least provide the minimum rights of Palestinians is not acceptable.

Shalah just said ” we have at least 3000 injured people in Gaza, with the the continuation of the blockade those will be facing death due to the lack of medical supplies , so ending the blockade is the minimum “

"when the powerful don’t win its a lose but when the weak don’t lose its a win" a rule that implies perfectly on the situation now in Gaza , a military expert said " therefore israel loses"
