Children Murdered in Palestine
13 Jun 2006
Jews blaimed for arabs killing their own children when they don't know how to manage their explosives.
An Israel Defense Forces intelligence officer has confirmed that the explosion that killed eight Palestinians on Friday, was caused by a stockpile of Hamas explosives.

"Shortly after we stopped defensive firing at Hamas rocket launch pads which were deployed behind Palestinian human shields, members of Hamas scrambled to fire more rockets at our positions," said Col. M. "We have eyes on every meter of Gaza, from the sky, from the ground and from the sea. One of their rocket tripods collapsed inadvertently setting off an explosion of a stockpile of Qassam rockets. The Palestinians killed their own children. And this was not the first time."

Hamas terrorists fired rockets and mortar bombs from a crowded Gaza beach at southern Israel. Some of the rockets fell near the Israel city of Ashkelon. Some 17 rockets were fired between Saturday and Sunday morning. A man at a school in the Israel town of Sderot was wounded, Israel officials said.

Israel Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant said today that the Israel Defense Forces has additional evidence that it wasn't Israel artillery that hit the beach in Gaza. Galant, who commands Israel's southern command, said Israel stopped firing 15 minutes before the explosion. It's all on secure videotape from both sides of the conflict. Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he was sorry about the deaths, which included three children.

Hamas's military branch had been responsible for dozens of suicide terror bomb attacks on Israelis since the second Palestinian uprising began in 2000. But until Saturday, Hamas had been honoring an informal ceasefire forged in February 2005 by Ariel Sharon, then Israel prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority.

The truce had been broken on occasion by other Palestinian terror groups, such as Islamic Jihad, and by Israeli forces, who said they were acting in retaliation.

Galant, warned that Palestinian terrorists "should expect a serious blow" since Hamas had ended its ceasefire. As the violence flared, Abbas was trying to convince Hamas to back his plan to hold a referendum on establishing a Palestinian state. The plan implicitly recognizes Israel's right to exist, which Hamas has so far refused to do despite tremendous international pressure, including the halting of millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian Authority from the European Union, the United States and others. Hamas wrestled control of the Palestinian Authority from Abbas's Fatah party in a January election, but Abbas — who was elected separately as president — still retains much power.

Abbas argued that the referendum should be held on July 26, while Hamas leaders said the vote should be delayed because of the beach attack.

Palestinian terrorists have been using their own civilian population as human shields for many years. An even more disturbing trend is that there is increasing evidence that "Palestinians" are killing "Palestinians" not only for collaboration with Israel (which could mean as little as buying and selling an Israeli product), but also for bumping up the numbers of "martyrs" for the "Palestinian" cause.

When the current Intifada started, after Ariel Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount, a handful of Palestinian rioters were "shot in the back" as they were throwing stones at the Israeli Police. The Israel Police never gave the order to use live ammunition. If the rioters backs were towards the Temple Mount compound, from what direction did the shots come?

Jibril Rajoub, head of PA Preventive Security had led the Israeli government to believe that there would be no reaction to Likud MK Arik Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount as long as Sharon did not attempt to enter the mosque itself. Yet exactly the opposite happened. Using forensic evidence to try and trace the source of the bullets themselves would be complicated by the fact that the Israeli Government authorized the transfer of thousands of guns to the Palestinians, for use by the Palestinian Police force. “We have no problems with weaponry since we have enough guns that were given to us by Israel,” stated Abed el-Qader, Senior Tanzim Leader on March 8, 2001.

The film clip of the shooting of Al Dura, the 12 year old palestinian boy, shown worldwide clearly shows firing coming from someone who stood next to the Palestinian camera man Talal Abu Rahma.

A BBC editor was killed by Hisbollah mortar fire, as the Israel troops were retreating from Lebanon, was blamed on Israel. The Christian German doctor from Beit Jalla who was asked to leave his house at 11:30 at night by Palestinian Paramedics, only to be gunned down 50 yards from his front door with bullet holes riddling the wall behind him that could not have come from an Israeli helicopter.

But perhaps the worst example of Palestinians killing Palestinians is when they teach their children that this is the norm. Mohammed al-Dura, the 12-year-old Palestinian youth whose shooting death made him the poster boy of the "Intifada," was courtesy of Palestinian television spoke to an ever-angrier generation of Arab youths from beyond the grave, beckoning to them from paradise to become terrorists and suicide bombers – in a word, martyrs.

According to Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch, "examination of the TV clips aired extensively on PA [Palestinian Authority] television" reveals "incessant broadcasting" of programming that "extols and glorifies the dead and especially their willingness to be killed, and portrays their afterlife as idyllic." One particular film, he says, "openly and explicitly tells the children to seek death by portraying the most famous child 'Martyr,' Muhammad al-Dura, calling to other children to join him, in his idyllic afterlife."

Israel Defence Minister Amir Peretz said while on a visit to the 60-year-old Israel man seriously wounded by a rocket that Israel would make "painful" responses unless the rocket fire stopped. Peretz told the Israeli cabinet earlier that Israel would "act against all who are involved in terror, including Hamas members."

Many Israelis are doing themselves a gross disservice, and playing into the hands of the Palestinians, by presuming that an Israeli shell caused the deaths of seven Palestinian civilians Friday in Gaza, Prime Minster Ehud Olmert's Foreign media advisor Ra'anan Gissin said Sunday. "We are repeating the same mistakes of the past in taking responsibility when there are other possibilities about who is responsible," Gissin said. He said that Friday's tragedy on the Gaza beach may indeed be similar to the shooting of Mohammed al-Dura in 2000, the "Jenin Massacre" in 2002, and the killing of 21 people at the Jabaliya refugee camp last September.

While the Palestinians originally pinned the blame for all these incidents on Israel, it has since turned out that al-Dura had been killed by Palestinians, that there was no "Jenin massacre," and that the deaths in Jabaliya were caused when Hamas activists "mishandled" explosives at a mass rally.

The Israel Colonel who confirmed that a Hamas explosives stockpile killed innocent Palestine children on a Gaza beach, added: "It should be noted that the Hamas rockets which killed those kids came from Iran. For many in Palestine, Iran and Syria, those children are now merely good "martyrs" and serve as blood food for the Islam terror propaganda machine."

Re: Children Murdered in Palestine

Murderous thieves blame the war of conquest they started in the deaths of 8 Palestinians. Nazis also blamed the freedom fighters for being responcable in the deaths of Czechs, Poles, Danes, etc.

Not that I believe propagansists for murderous thieves, if Zionists were not murderous thieves of Palestinian lands, palestinians wouldn't be fighting against those murderous thieves. Even if you choose to believe the propagandists of murderous thieves, it would still be the ZIonists and thier war of conquest that is responcible for the deaths of Palestinians, just as it was the nazi's war that got Poles, Czechs, Danes, etc killed. The conflict between Zionist crusaders and thier chosen victims is the ZIonists offense and all the blood spilled is on the Zionist offender's hands. palestinians didn't ask for the Zionist invador's bloodsoaked war of conquest to destroy thier lives.
Enlightened Population Policies Can Lead To Peace

Should Palosetinians still residing in areas of historic "Palestine" raise children there. Given the wide support armed violent antiIsraeli groups have from the average Palosetinian, the area clearly is an infested area that must be decontaminated. Thus, it is an area dangerous for children and dogs.

As a lover of both children and dogs, I urge that US progressives strongly protest the anti-female policies of the Isllamist masters of Palosetinians. Abortion should be made free and safre for every Palosetinian woman. Condoms with gaily draw illustrations (baby lambs? Yasr Arafat dressed as a Troll?) should be dropped en masse from the air.

Its About Choice. Palosetinians made Bad Choices by deciding to have little Palosetinians. Let's help them make a Better Choice.
Arabs Buy TVs rather than medical supplies for their Children
14 Jun 2006
While the Hamas/Palestinian Authority continues to claim hunger and impoverishment because of the world's financial boycott, 111 truckloads of TV sets have entered Gaza over the past two weeks.


The televisions, imported by Israelis and resold to PA importers for sale to end users, were shipped through the Karni Crossing. The upswing in television purchases in the PA may be related to the start of the World Cup soccer games in Europe, broadcast throughout the Middle East. The price in Israel to watch the World Cup is some 300 shekels.

Lt.-Col. Shlomo Dror, speaking with Arutz-7's correspondent Haggai Huberman, confirmed the report, and said that 400 trucks enter every day with food and medicines.

Foreign Minister Tzippy Livni yesterday told American envoy David Walsh that the Hamas-led PA government refused Israel's offer of 50 million shekels worth of medicines, instead demanding that Israel provide the cash equivalent from the tax revenues Israel began withholding since the Hamas took over the PA.

Israel's decision is to use the money for humanitarian purposes, and not to transfer money that is likely to be used to fund attacks against Israelis.

Several weeks ago, Israel turned to the PA, via the World Health Organization (WHO), in an attempt to find out which hospitals they should provide with medical equipment and medicines. WHO officials came back with an answer a few days ago, saying that the PA is not interested in receiving medicines, but rather cash.

"The PA's position shows that there really is no health crisis in the PA, contrary to its claims," Israeli security sources said, "and that they want to use the money for other things."

The European Union is attempting to expand the definition of "humanitarian needs" to include all welfare and social services, such as education, social workers and psychologists. Many in Israel, on the other hand, feel that whatever money is given for these purposes will simply free up other PA monies to be used for terrorism and related causes.

And the international red cross said that nazis were shipping food and medacines to the concentration camps. And that towards the end of the war, when the bombing got really intense, that it was allied bombing of railroads and bridges that prevented it from getting to the camps.

Would the fact that shippments of food and medacines to the concentration camps were being sent also mean Nazi atrocities didn't exist??? How would TV set gods being sent to Gaza mean Zionists are something other than bloodsoaked murderous thieves of Palestinian lands??? Your suppositions are so flacid.

Why not just tell us how Zionists have a birthright of murderous theft of palestinian lands? That is what the "conflict" is all about, isn't it???
