THE STORY THAT ISRAEL WANTS TO SEE DISAPPEAR

Big cracks in the walls of Israeli propaganda

The story that Israel wants to go away but that is critical to tell…

Press conference held at the UN 10 June 2010 to release the one hour video smuggled out
and there are other videos showing Israeli commanders obviously not under any threat shooting point blank at passengers who are down.
Here the soldier empties four bullets into the head of a 19 year old US citizen and still the US refuses an independent investigation (or at least demand Israel return all confiscated cameras and video and photos)


Israel hasbara fails again: Photos show Mavi Marmara passengers protecting, aiding Israeli soldiers.

Reporters Without Borders: As Turkish photographer is buried, other journalists aboard flotilla speak out.


And more survivor testimony.


And a Chilling testimony of a survivor from the massacre.

And Dr. Paul Larudee on ‘The Price of Defying Israel ‘: I was one of those who chose to defy Israeli forces when they attacked and took our Freedom Flotilla ships that were trying to deliver desperately needed humanitarian aid to civilian organizations in the Israeli blockaded Gaza Strip…


Must read document which demolishes Israel’s legal basis for blockade, attack, exclusion zone.

Roger Waters  (Pink Floyd) says it all: We shall overcome

Liberal PEPs Trash Helen Thomas While Ignoring Flotilla Deaths


Israel Navy reserves officers wrote a letter contradicting the Israeli official version and calling to ‘Allow external Gaza flotilla probe”


The rogue state of Israel (with backing by Israeli occupied Washington) refuses to return or release the videos and photos taken by passengers (or even full videos taken by their own military instead of the doctored short clips) and refuses an International impartial investigation. Instead, the Israeli military just announced forming a military investigative committee to take some ‘operational lessons’.  The chief criminal, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi appointed Maj-Gen (ret.) Giora Eiland to head this ‘inquest’. Who is Giora Eiland? The NY Times had this interesting quote:

The Israeli theory of what it tried to do here[in Gaza by killing 1400 people mostly civilians]  is summed up in a Hebrew phrase heard across Israel and throughout the military in the past weeks: “baal habayit hishtageya,” or “the boss has lost it.” It evokes the image of a madman who cannot be controlled. “This phrase means that if our civilians are attacked by you, we are not going to respond in proportion but will use all means we have to cause you such damage that you will think twice in the future,” said Giora Eiland, a former national security adviser.


This is like Hitler appointing Eichman to look into operational lessons from Auchwitz.  And yet, Mahmoud Abbas tells Zionist lobbyists in Washington in a cordial meeting that he recognizes Jewish rights to our land and puts Israeli security on the top of his agenda. Meanwhile decent people here at the local level confront Israeli soldiers daily (despite objections from the ‘Palestinian Authority’). Yesterday confrontations and arrests happened in several towns.  Here in the Bethlehem area, you can join us in Beit Jala every Sunday at 11:30 AM (Cremsan road). And decent people internationally are engaging in boycotts, divestments, and sanctions (critical tools to end this apartheid)
