Bombing of Gaza children gives me “orgasm”: Israelis celebrate slaughter on Facebook

Bombing of Gaza children gives me “orgasm”: Israelis celebrate slaughter on Facebook

Israel’s latest assault on the besieged Gaza Strip has been accompanied by yet another sharp increase in incitement against Palestinians and solidarity activists on social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter.


Facebook groups have been set up to call for the collective
punishment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Others host incitement
against Palestinian students at Israeli universities, including posting pictures of and personal information about individual students.


The radical and violent anti-Palestinian climate in Israel is not divorced from reality.


After more than a week of Israeli government threats to do so,
commandos launched the first ground incursion into the northern Gaza
Strip early Sunday morning, reported Ma’an News Agency.


At the time of writing, there have been no Israeli deaths as a result
of rockets fired by armed Palestinian groups in Gaza, though much of
the mainstream media have focused on the impact of rocket fire on Israel
rather than the staggering death toll in the Gaza Strip.


As Israel’s latest military offensive enters its sixth day, the Ministry of Health in Gaza reports that 170 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,000 injured.

I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush's final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime."

'Birth defects' from Israeli bombs

Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 2006 and last winter have left a high concentration of toxic metals in its soil, according to the findings of a weapons research group made up of independent doctors and scientists based in Italy.

Doctors in Gaza believe the toxic wastes, along with the trauma of war, is the reason they're seeing a high number of babies with birth defects.
