THE WESTERN LEADERS SERVE THEIR ZIONIST MASTERS DAY AND NIGHT WELL BY SUPPORTING AND DEFENDING ISRAELI “WAR CRIMES” IN GAZA, PALESTINE
by Syarif Hidayat
The US regime leaders and The American leaders-led western regimes leaders serve their Zionist Masters day and night well by supporting the Zionist Israelis “war crimes” and “genocide” in Gaza, Palestine by using the internationally banned weapons against Palestinian civilians including old men, women, children and babies. The US President, Barack Obama repeated his claim that “Israel has the right to defend itself against what I consider to be inexcusable attacks from Hamas.”
Senate panel doubles money for Israel’s Iron Dome
As the slaughter in Gaza continues, the United States Congress approved even more of Americans tax money to Israel! While the Zionist forces are killing many Palestinian civilians including old men, women, children and babies in Palestine, the Congress is showing tangible support for longtime ally Israel, backing a measure that would double the amount of money for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
The Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee approved a defense spending bill on Tuesday that would provide $621.6 million for Israeli missile defense, including $351 million for the Iron Dome system that intercepts short-range rockets and mortars. In the latest hostilities between Israel and Hamas, Iron Dome has been successful in shooting down rockets and preventing Israeli deaths.
“It works,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat and chairman of the subcommittee. Since 1988 and the early days of U.S.-Israeli cooperation on missile defense, presidents have proposed a specific amount for the program knowing full well that members of Congress will increase the funds, especially after they hear from Israel. Overall, the defense bill would provide $549.3 billion for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.
The bill spares several of the weapons programs that the Pentagon had proposed scaling back or eliminating, including the A-10 Warthog, the close air support aircraft and the USS George Washington aircraft carrier. Durbin emphasized research and development within the military. The bill would provide $25 million to fund a competition to develop a new domestic rocket engine. Durbin said reliance on a Russian-built version made no sense.
“Who will ever suspect then that ALL THESE PEOPLES WERE STAGE-MANAGED BY US ACCORDING TO A POLITICAL PLAN WHICH NO ONE HAS SO MUCH AS GUESSED AT IN THE COURSE OF MANY CENTURIES?” Protocol of the Elders of Zion —13, para 6.
Facts speak for themselves correctly and objectively that the Israelis through the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbyists could bully American leaders and Congressmen as well as media leaders into supporting and financing Israeli actions in the occupied lands to the tune of three to five billions of US dollars a year as well as supporting its political interests worldwide, while American leaders and the congressmen as well as media leaders could not be brave enough to stand up against the Israelis bullying!
That is why facts speak for themselves objectively and correctly that every US presidential race almost always becomes a big political event for American leaders from both Republican and Democratic parties to take part in a “formula competition” to serve the Zionist Israel better!
The US Regime leaders and the US-led western regimes leaders as well as the US-led western media leaders always serve the Zionist Israel day and night well!

Baba Mezia, 114b “The Jews are called human beings, but the non-Jews are not humans. They are beasts.”
Yebamoth 98a. “All gentile children are animals.”
Nidrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L: “Jehovah created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night.”
Midrasch Talpioth (fol. 225d): “God created them [Jews] in the form of men for the glory of Israel . But Akum were created for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form, and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him.”
Israel is using disproportionate force amounting to war crimes
The US President, Barack Obama repeated his claim that “Israel has the right to defend itself against what I consider to be inexcusable attacks from Hamas.” In a press briefing on Monday, July 14, 2014, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest denied that war crimes had been committed or disproportionate force had been used by the Israeli military. While the rationale for the intervention in Gaza was to end the firing of rockets by Hamas and other resistance factions, no Israeli civilian or soldier has been killed.
The United States announced that it does not believe the military operations launched by Israel on the Gaza Strip amount to “war crimes”, Anadolu Agency reported. Josh Earnest said during the daily briefing, “We do not see anything like this” in response to a question about the Palestinian accusation against Israel using disproportionate force amounting to war crimes in the attacks against Gaza.
Earnest said: “The US is enthusiastic to send US Secretary of State John Kerry to the region to negotiate a ceasefire agreement. I think there is a desire to increase our ability to influence this situation, so that we can make some success in reaching a ceasefire agreement.”
Kerry visited Cairo, after Egypt announced an initiative for a ceasefire agreement between Israel and the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip. Earnest commented on the US position on the Israeli military operation on Gaza, saying: “There is no doubt that the United States stands with Israel as they confront these threats, but at the same time we also have a concern for the well-being of innocent civilians on both sides.”
The Israeli army has launched a military operation dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” against the Gaza Strip for the second week under the pretext of stopping rocket fire from Gaza. Israeli leaders threaten to expand the military operation to a ground offensive. So far, the Israeli assault on Gaza has claimed the lives of around 200 Palestinians and injured more than 1,385 others, mostly civilians, women and children, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. Israel announced that 211 Israelis were injured by rockets fired from Gaza, the majority of them suffered panic attacks.
US serves Israel well by condemning Palestinians
American State Department condemned Palestinians firing rockets and accused the Palestinians of “deliberately” targeting Israeli civilians, while at the same time ignoring Israeli occupation drones and war planes targeting Palestinian civilians in the blockaded Gaza.
Spokeswoman of the US Secretary of State Jen Psaki said: “We strongly condemn the continuing rocket fire into Israel and the deliberate targeting of civilians by terrorist organisations in Gaza.” She continued: “No country can accept rocket fire aimed at civilians, and we certainly support Israel’s right to defend itself against these attacks.” But she added that Secretary of State John Kerry has been calling on both sides to avoid ramping up tensions in the region.
“He has reiterated our concern, as our teams have on the ground to both sides, about the need to de-escalate tensions on the ground,” she said. When pressed to answer whether either side is acting “responsibly”, as the administration wants, Psaki declined to answer. She hoped that Israel occupation could deter future attacks, but reiterated “we prefer a truce to be reached”. Psaki ignored that the continuous attacks of the Israeli occupation artillery and fighter jets had resulted in the death of 81 Palestinians and lead to 540 Palestinians being wounded.
France, Germany and UK ‘Strongly Condemn’ Rockets on Israel
Israeli occupation Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu speaks with Merkel, Francois Hollande, Ban Ki-Moon and John Kerry about Gaza operation. Netanyahu spoke on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and US Secretary of State John Kerry, and released the following statement to the international community:
“Hamas and other resistant fighters groups in Gaza are firing rockets on cities throughout the State of Israel – on Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Beer Sheba, Sderot and other cities in Israel. No country on earth would remain passive in the face of hundreds of rockets fired on its cities and Israel is no exception. “Today we expanded our operations against Hamas and the other resistant fighters groups in Gaza.
“We will continue to protect our civilians against Hamas attacks on them. Hamas, by contrast, is deliberately putting Palestinian civilians into harm’s way. It embeds its terrorists in hospitals, schools, mosques and apartment buildings throughout the Gaza Strip. Hamas is thus committing a double war crime: It targets Israeli civilians, while hiding behind Palestinian civilians.
“This operation could take time. We are resolved to defend our families and our homes. “Today I spoke with several world leaders. I appreciated their expressions of strong support for our right and our duty to defend ourselves, and this is what we will continue to do,” said Netanyahu.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she telephoned Netanyahu and “condemned without reservation rocket fire on Israel.” “There is no justification” for such attacks, Merkel told Netanyahu, according to her spokeswoman.
Francois Hollande “expressed France’s solidarity (with Israel) in the face of rocket fire from Gaza” and told Netanyahu “that France strongly condemns these aggressions,” said a statement from the French presidency. Hollande also said that it was up to Israel “to take all measures to protect its population in the face of threats” but reminded the Israeli premier “of the need to prevent an escalation of violence.”
UK supports brutal offensive against Palestinians
British Foreign Secretary William Hague has supported the Israeli regime’s brutal military offensive against the defenseless Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. In separate phone calls to the president of the Palestinian national unity government, Mahmoud Abbas, and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Saturday, July 12, 2014, Hague said Israel has the “right to defend itself” against rocket attacks from Gaza.
“I told Minister Lieberman that continuing rocket attacks from Gaza are completely unacceptable. Israel has the right to defend itself against such attacks, but the whole world wanted to see de-escalation,” Hague said.
His comments came days after British Prime Minister David Cameron expressed support for Israel in its ongoing war against Palestinians. In a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week, Cameron reiterated Britain’s “staunch support” for the ongoing Israeli bombing campaign against the besieged Gaza.
According to reports, at around 200 Palestinians, most of them women and children, have lost their lives since Israel launched its offensive against Gaza last week. Nearly 1,100 others have been also injured in the ongoing deadly air raids. Gaza border, firing into the region. Tel Aviv has also mobilized some 33,000 reservists in
This is while Israeli tanks have now lined up along the preparation for a possible ground incursion. Thousands of anti-Israeli protesters on Sunday, July 13, 2014, gathered outside the Israeli embassy in London, calling on the British government and media to stop supporting Tel Aviv’s atrocities.
People in Iran, the US, Jordan, Tunisia, Turkey, France, Indonesia have also taken to the streets, calling for a halt to the Israeli attacks.
French President expresses French solidarity with Israel
French President Francois Hollande expressed his country’s solidarity with Israel in the face of rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, stressing that Israel has the right to “take all appropriate measures to protect its people from threats,” Anadolu Agency reported. A statement issued by the presidential palace on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, said that Hollande had telephoned Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express to him “France’s solidarity with Israel in the face of rocket fire from Gaza.”
The statement said, “France firmly condemns these attacks”, adding that, “Israel can take all appropriate measures to protect its people.” The Israeli Air Force has been waging a mass military campaign since Tuesday, July 15, 2014 against different parts of the Gaza Strip.
The raids have so far resulted in the killing of around Palestinians, including women and children, and injured nearly 500, according to Palestinian medical sources. Meanwhile, Gaza has responded by launching rockets against Israeli towns and cities. No deaths have been reported on the Israeli side.
WHICH ONE CAME FIRST? PALESTINIAN ROCKETS OR ISRAELI VIOLENCE?
Alison Weirs in the article titled “Which came first? Palestinian rockets or Israeli violence?” published in Alison Weir Official website http://www.alisonweir.org, writes Since US media are reporting the latest Israeli massacre in Gaza as though it is a defensive action, I thought I would set the record straight. Israeli forces shelled and invaded Gaza BEFORE the rockets began. Rockets were fired only after numerous Palestinians, including many children, had been killed.
According to a pro-Israel website, the Jewish Virtual Library, Gaza rocket fire against Israel began in 2001. Four rockets were launched in the entire year. The Israeli military website agrees with this chronology, saying that the first rocket was launched from Gaza on April 16, 2001. By happenstance, I was traveling throughout the Palestinian Occupied Territories just before that – during February-March 2001 – as a freelance reporter. While I was there, Israeli forces were regularly shelling both the West Bank and Gaza, and had been doing so for several months. Gaza was particularly hard hit. (An article I wrote at the time can be read here.)
Below are some of my photos from Gaza from February 2001 (i.e. BEFORE any rockets had been fired, and long before Hamas was elected in 2006.)
A few months before, in fall 2000, massive unarmed demonstrations against Israeli occupation began, eventually growing into what is known as the “Second Intifada” (uprising).* Israeli forces immediately used lethal means to try to put this down. An Israeli newspaper reported that the Israeli military fired over a million bullets in the first few days alone.
In the following three months Israeli forces killed over 90 Palestinian children – before a single Israeli child was then killed, and long before any rockets were fired. (The largest single cause of these Palestinian children’s deaths was gunfire to the head.)
In fact, in every year since, far more Palestinian children have been killed than Israeli children:
Which came first? Palestinian rockets or Israeli violence?
Israeli shelling, military ground invasions, and abductions of Palestinians have continued throughout the following years, occurring, except for few ceasefires (which Israeli violence consistently ends), virtually every day.
Some groups (usually not Hamas), have also periodically fired rockets at Israel through these years.
During that time Israeli forces killed 4,000 Gazans, while Gazan resistance fighters using rockets killed 27 Israelis. On average, Israelis have killed a Palestinian child every three days. By the way, the Iron Dome sysem has played a somewhat minimal role in the small number of Israeli deaths from rockets. Iron Dome wasn’t begun to be put in place until March 27, 2011. In the ten years before, there were only 17 deaths.
Who originally began this violence?
Of course, the conflict between the two groups began before fall 2000, so let us go back and see how this all started, and which party initiated the violence.
That’s actually quite easy to do. You don’t need to go back “thousands of years,” as some people believe. In reality, in the late 1800s this region – known as Palestine – was peaceful and had been so for centuries. Its population was about 80 percent are Muslims, 15 percent Christians, and a little under 5 percent Jewish; all practicing their faiths side by side largely without conflict on land considered sacred to all three groups.
The problem began when a political movement called “Political Zionism” began in the late 1800s in Europe (and also in the United States) with the goal of pushing out the inhabitants and creating a Jewish state on this land.
The culmination of their efforts came in 1948-49, when Israel was created through warfare. At least 750,000 of Palestine’s non-Jewish inhabitants, approximately half of the total population, were ethnically cleansed, their lands, businesses, orchards, and other property (worth many millions of dollars) confiscated by the newly created Jewish state, Israel.
The Palestinians’ crime was being there.
By the way, the belief – also pushed by US media – that the current wave of violence began with the abduction and murder of three young Israelis is also incorrect. The fact is that Israeli forces had killed at least 4 Palestinian children and approximately 35 Palestinian adults in 2014 BEFORE the abuction/murder of the three Israeli kids.
Also, one of the largest group hunger strikes in history was going on among Palestinians who were being held illegally in Israeli prisons — these “administrative detainees,” Israel’s Orwellian term, are prisoners who have never even been charged with a crime, yet are held for months or years. Many are tortured.
Even JJ Goldberg, a fervently pro-Israel journalist, says that Israeli “politics and lies” are behind Israel’s current aggression. The pro-Israel spin, despite being repeated over and over, just doesn’t survive the facts.

HERE ARE SOME PROOFS OF ISRAELI WAR CRIMES:
Israeli forces killing Gazans with lethal shells
Palestinian human rights activists say Israeli forces are using lethal shells known as flechette during their ongoing military attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights says the Israeli forces keep firing flechette shells toward the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis over the past few days. Experts say this type of shell explodes in the air and releases thousands of metal darts.
The Israeli military has not denied using the shells in its onslaught. The Israeli regime has formerly used flechette shells in Gaza and Lebanon. Activists say several Palestinians were killed in Gaza due to such shells during previous Israeli attacks. The munitions have also killed and wounded dozens of civilians, including women and children, in Israel’s war on Lebanon. The revelation comes as reports say that Israel is using white phosphorous bombs, which are considered as banned weapons in civilian areas.
Medics say some Palestinians in the besieged enclave have been wounded by a new type of weapon that even doctors with previous experience in war zones do not recognize. Israel had also used depleted-uranium and white phosphorus shells in the besieged region during their previous assaults. This is while Israeli tanks and warplanes keep pounding the besieged enclave. At least 78 Palestinians have been killed on Monday alone.
This brings to 549 the total death toll from 14 days of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. Over 3000 Palestinians have also been injured in the onslaught. The majority of victims are civilians including women, children and the elderly.
Norwegian surgeon witnesses Israeli war crimes in Gaza
Norwegian professor Mads Frederick Gilbert is utterly shocked as he checks the corpses of martyrs and the bodies of the wounded as they continuously arrive in the al Shifa Hospital in Gaza on the seventh day of the bloody Israeli onslaught on the besieged Strip.
Gilbert, 67, a surgeon, murmured as he walked in the Intensive Care Unit: “This is outrageous, horrific and unbelievable… what’s happening is no less than premeditated killing and genocide.” In an interview with Safa News, Gilbert says the Israeli occupation deliberately uses internationally forbidden destructive weapons in its continued onslaught on Gaza.
“Israeli bombs cause injuries that cannot be immediately seen via x-ray,” Gilbert said, “After a period of time, the injury starts to bleed.” “The material used in these bombs is uncommon, which explains why we cannot cure the injured parts, and in some cases doctors are forced to amputate them,” he says.
Gilbert arrived in Gaza on Thursday, July 10, 2014 via the Rafah border crossing after Israel barred him from entering Gaza via the Beit Hanoun/Erez crossing. The Norwegian physician has been to Gaza a number of times, the last was during the Israeli offensive in 2012.
An internationally renowned activist and member of the Norwegian socialist party the Red Party, Gilbert specialises in anaesthesia, and heads the Department of Emergency Medicine at the North Norway University Hospital. “I feel as though I moved from a colourful world, where people enjoy freedom and peace, to the world of Gaza where life, peace and security are simply non-existent,” he says while examining all cases that arrive in the hospital
He adds that his visit to Gaza this time is different. “The entire Gaza Strip has become a military target for Israeli warplanes; there is no safe place here. You can hear the air raids everywhere and see fear and anxiety on the faces of all the people and children.” Around 200 Palestinians, including 35 children and 24 women, have been killed by Israeli raids on Gaza since last Monday, July 7, 2014. Gilbert expresses his distress over the volume of bloodletting caused by Israeli airstrikes: “I am very pained by the scenes of the dead and wounded at every corner of the hospital.”
The Norwegian professor repeats that Israel “deliberately” targets civilians, “particularly women and children,” adding that the majority of the victims are women, children and the elderly. Gilbert has been subject to an Israeli smear campaign; Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor accused him of spreading lies.
Gilbert responds saying: “Regrettably, the Israeli media machine in Europe portrays the victims as members of Hamas. But we will eventually discover that these are lies and rumors. What crime have women and children committed to be killed and bombed? “If Israel denies my claims, it should open Gaza for international teams to come and see for themselves and issue reliable medical reports,” he said defiantly.
Gilbert is working diligently with other medical teams at the Shifa Hospital to rescue incoming casualties. “Israel is collectively punishing civilians,” he stresses. “The casualties we saw are horrific and abnormal. Most of them are in the head or chest, and there is no room for cosmetic operations because the type of injuries requires amputation,” he explains.
Gilbert confirms that the Israeli occupation has breached all international laws and treaties, particularly the Geneva Conventions, through its policies of war and siege, and its usage of internationally banned weapons.
Letter from Gaza by a Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert
The last night was extreme. The “ground invasion” of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying – all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent.
The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza’s hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment all in Shifa for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS!
Now, once more treated like animals by “the most moral army in the world” (sic!).
My respect for the wounded is endless, in their contained determination in the midst of pain, agony and shock; my admiration for the staff and volunteers is endless, my closeness to the Palestinian “sumud” gives me strength, although in glimpses I just want to scream, hold someone tight, cry, smell the skin and hair of the warm child, covered in blood, protect ourselves in an endless embrace – but we cannot afford that, nor can they.
Ashy grey faces – Oh NO! Not one more load of tens of maimed and bleeding, we still have lakes of blood on the floor in the ER, piles of dripping, blood-soaked bandages to clear out – oh – the cleaners, everywhere, swiftly shovelling the blood and discarded tissues, hair, clothes,cannulas – the leftovers from death – all taken away … to be prepared again, to be repeated all over. More then 100 cases came to Shifa in the last 24 hrs. Enough for a large well trained hospital with everything, but here – almost nothing: no electricity, water, disposables, drugs, OR-tables, instruments, monitors – all rusted and as if taken from museums of yesterday’s hospitals. But they do not complain, these heroes. They get on with it, like warriors, head on, enormously resolute.
And as I write these words to you, alone, on a bed, my tears flow, the warm but useless tears of pain and grief, of anger and fear. This is not happening!
An then, just now, the orchestra of the Israeli war-machine starts its gruesome symphony again, just now: salvos of artillery from the navy boats just down on the shores, the roaring F16, the sickening drones (Arabic ‘Zennanis’, the hummers), and the cluttering Apaches. So much made in and paid by the US.
Mr. Obama – do you have a heart?
I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa. Disguised as a cleaner, maybe.
I am convinced, 100%, it would change history.
Nobody with a heart AND power could ever walk away from a night in Shifa without being determined to end the slaughter of the Palestinian people.
But the heartless and merciless have done their calculations and planned another “dahyia” onslaught on Gaza.
The rivers of blood will keep running the coming night. I can hear they have tuned their instruments of death.
Please. Do what you can. This, THIS cannot continue.
