The Atrocity

The Atrocity

By Uri Avnery


Again without
any purpose. Again with the certainty that after
it’s all over, everything will essentially be the
same as it was before.



But I can
hardly hear the sirens which warn of rockets coming
towards Tel Aviv. I cannot take my mind off the
awful thing that happened in Jerusalem.



IF A gang
of neo-Nazis had kidnapped a 16-year old boy in a
London Jewish neighborhood in the dark of the night,
driven him to Hyde Park, beaten him up, poured
gasoline into his mouth, doused him all over and set
him on fire – what would have happened?



Wouldn't
the UK have exploded in a storm of anger and
disgust?



Wouldn't
the Queen have expressed her outrage?



Wouldn't
the Prime Minister have rushed to the home of the
bereaved family to apologize on behalf of the entire
nation?



Wouldn't
the leadership of the neo-Nazis, their active
supporters and brain-washers be indicted and
condemned?



Perhaps in
the UK. Perhaps in Germany.



Not here.

Nir Rosen: Gaza: Israel, Hamas and the logic of colonial power | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk: "I have spent most of the Bush administration's tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. 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."

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.


“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’…

'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.
