How Will the World Respond to Israeli Crimes in 2009?

The Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip is strikingly similar to the Nazi attack on the Warsaw ghetto in 1943.

The Nazis built a wall around the Warsaw ghetto in the same way Israel has built walls around the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

The Israeli wall of separation is like the Nazi wall of the Warsaw ghetto. The Zionists of the Irgun (Olmert, Livni, Sharon, et al) and the Nazis were allies in World War II and share the same misguided belief that Jews cannot live with other people.


Israel bombed the United Nations (UNRWA) compound in Gaza on the morning of January 15 with at least 5 missiles, three of which were white phosphorus, according to BBC World News reports. This is clear evidence of an atrocious war crime. Asked by the BBC about the shelling of the compound as it burned, Mark Regev, Israeli government spokesman, denied that Israel had struck the UN compound with white phosphorus. Israel has been using white phosphorus illegally since the beginning of its aerial bombing campaign of the defenseless civilian population of Gaza. With more than 1,028 Palestinians killed and 4,000 injured, Regev claims that Israel has done nothing wrong.


Israeli War Crime Suspects: Foreign Minister Tzipora Livni (a.k.a. "Tzipi"), Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, and Defence Minister Ehud Barak; for planning and waging war(s) of aggression, war crimes, and false-flag terrorism (9-11) attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11, 2001.

Israeli War Crime Suspects: Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi (L), Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak, and Yoav Galant, head of the Southern Command, at an army base in southern Israel, January 8, 2009. Their military assault on the Gaza Strip is strikingly similar to the Nazi destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto.

U.S. Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice votes to abstain after Ehud Olmert, the terrorist leader of Israel, ordered the U.S. president not to support the Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. Rice had been instrumental in writing the resolution which was voted on January 8, a full 13 days after the U.S.-supplied Israeli air force began attacking the defenseless civilian population. 75 percent of the population of Gaza Strip is refugees who lost their homes and land when their families were subjected to "ethnically cleansing" by Zionist forces in 1948. Rice and Bush have long followed Zionist dictates and are largely responsible for the disaster that has befallen the Palestinians -- particularly those of the Gaza Strip.

Bush and Rice caused the Palestinian civil war of 2007 with a covert policy designed to destroy Hamas, the Islamic party that won the majority in the Palestinian parliament in the free and fair election of January 2006. The Bush-Rice policy fiasco led to the intra-Palestinian conflict, a three-year illegal siege, and wide-scale destruction of life and property in Gaza.

In January 2006, when Hamas, formally known as the Islamic Resistance Movement, won the elections for Palestinian parliament the Israeli government and Bush administration tried to overthrow the results of the democratic process they claimed to support.

When Hamas swept the elections, co-founder Mahmoud Zahhar explained to BBC World TV the organization's refusal to renounce violence:

We are not playing terrorism or violence. We are under occupation. The Israelis are continuing their aggression against our people, killing, detention, demolition and in order to stop these processes, we run effective self defence by all means, including using guns.


David Rose of Vanity Fair wrote an investigative article in April 2008, entitled "The Gaza Bombshell," in which he revealed State Dept. documents that revealed "a covert initiative, approved by Bush and implemented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams, to provoke a Palestinian civil war."

"After failing to anticipate Hamas’ victory over Fatah in the 2006 Palestinian election, the White House cooked up yet another scandalously covert and self-defeating Middle East debacle: part Iran-contra, part Bay of Pigs," Rose wrote.

A State Dept. document found in a Fatah office of Gaza revealed the U.S. policy to overthrow the elected Hamas-led Palestinian parliament and install an Abbas-led dictatorship. So much for U.S. support for governments chosen through democratic elections in the Middle East. (Second page of document is here.)

Condoleezza Rice and George Bush pushed the disastrous plan, which resulted in the intra-Palestinian conflict between Hamas and Fatah supporters in June 2007. There is no question that this policy was approved by the Israeli government, although Rose does not discuss this in his article. Bush and Rice would not dare take a single step in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict without the approval of their Zionist masters.

"It is impossible to say for sure whether the outcome in Gaza would have been any better—for the Palestinian people, for the Israelis, and for America’s allies in Fatah—if the Bush administration had pursued a different policy," Rose concluded. "One thing, however, seems certain: it could not be any worse."

Much of the blame for the current crisis in Gaza is due to the corrupt and spineless diplomacy of the Bush administration -- particularly that of Condoleezza Rice. The Zionist policies pursued by George W. Bush and his administration have created an unmitigated disaster for the people across the Middle East and around the world -- that is an historical fact.

How do we respond to genocide? Boycott Israeli products? Obama is talking about the economy but completely tight-lipped about the Israeli aggression against the civilian population of Gaza. As president, will Obama demand an investigation of the Israeli massacres and war crimes in Gaza?

"The Israeli army is cowardly attacking worn-out, innocent people, while they claim that they are defending their people. I call on the people of Israel to stand up against that government, to demand, to put a hand on their hearts and look at their children, and I call on the world to stop this madness."
