The post-Gaza world

“Be hopeful but be prepared for the worst.
Welcome to the post-Gaza world.”

Certainly peace loving people are hopeful.
Knowing the super-hawks in Israel and the US – the worst is yet to come.
Is “prepared of the worst” means the utter destruction of the globe?


“Will the UN act on Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's call for accountability?”

What accountability? Who dares make Israel and the US accountable? To them the UN is not even worth a cupful of warm spittle.

“Will Israel be brought to the International Court of Justice?”

ICJ who? This can of squirming worms? How many times have Israel or the US for that matter ignored it?

“Will an international tribunal be established to prosecute Israeli officials for war crimes? “

Can’t you see? They blamed the Palestinians for being slaughtered for the war crimes. How can you blame the rogue lion for making a feast of an abandoned fawn?

“If an international tribunal is set up, will the people really responsible for ordering the attack on Gaza be held accountable or will a few Israeli officials be made scapegoats to appease the world's conscience?”

O how beautiful. You are describing the elephant walk – especially when the US and Israel are involved. The laws they are a signatory to never apply to them – to others yes.

”Will the international community finally tell Israel it can no longer commit war crimes and human rights violations with impunity?”

Do you think the US is part of this “international community” you talk about? The ‘big brothers’ of the world are effectively gagged and shackled. So who do you propose tell Israel?

“Will reparations be paid to the Palestinians of Gaza?”

Nobody will be paid reparation – only the Jews have ‘a right’ to it. The victims are made to pay reparation. Typical holy-of-hollies Zionists mind.

“Will the siege of Gaza end soon?”

My friend, it will end when Gaza and the West Bank cease to exist. Then the siege will be placed somewhere else – and somewhere – and somewhere – till the map of the world is completely redrawn.

”Will anyone be held accountable for turning the Gaza Strip into a giant concentration camp during the siege?”

Can anyone hold Israel and the US accountable for anything? How many times have these two terrorist states ignore UN resolutions? Now it (the UN) can’t even string a good-sentenced ‘resolution’ without these rouge-states’ approval. What can the UN do? It’s a decorated portal no good for window shopping owned by cigar chomping fat-bellied hook-nosed carrion vulture of the Kalahari plains.

“Will a Palestinian state finally be established in the near future?”

What future? Palestine is gone. The Palestinians are reduced to the status of the Jews back before 1947 – citizen without a country. Right now they are laying on the table all options to ‘Palestinianize’ Iran, by ‘pulling out’ of Iraq, concentrating on Afghanistan, destabilizing Pakistan and ‘roping in’ India.

“Will the masses in Arab countries now rise up against their leaders, who actually did very little to support the Palestinians?”

That would be serving Israel its breakfast-to-supper meals in golden plates. Israel has everything to gain and the Arabs have everything to lose. Right now most Arab states are ‘made’ to sing the Israeli tune in blaming and placing the siege on Hamas (West Bank later perhaps). Do you ever wonder what the end-game would be on the Middle Eastern chess board? So many pawns are promoted to queens, rook or whatever. Abbas is one of them. Can you think of anyone in Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait etc. etc.? They even have their Trojan horses in Malaysia.

“Will Muslims finally wake up to the fact that we are one ummah and realize that the struggle of the oppressed Muslims of Palestine, Kashmir, Chechnya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo, and the rest of the world is one struggle?”

This is a struggle indeed. But Muslims are dancing to their tune. Muslims should play their own game on their own board using their own pieces and promoting their own pawns. Right now they are sacrificing their own pieces. All because there are too many players and all moves are consequential, devoid of strategies.

“Will the corporations of the military industrial complex that armed Israel be held accountable?”

This is like asking, “Will global industrialization and global burning of fossil fuel be held responsible for global warming?” Everyone knows the answer. But because of want, one renders oneself impotent. Most deaths suffered by the knights of the round table and the musketeers of France were by the swords. Can you blame them for arming themselves with swords?

“Will nothing be done, meaning the world is about to enter an era of ultra-violence where international law means nothing?”

This feeling of helplessness, this impotence, this being shackled and motivated by our own carnal wants, this indignity of allowing atrocities being meted out by humans to fellow humans, this resulting suppressed ‘anger’ will first make mankind, the oppressor and the oppressed alike, to look up into the skies and their first cry will be, “God where are you” as if they find their gods there. But some will find their answers there, some elsewhere and yet some others in themselves. All meaningful responses and manifested physical actions follows these kinds of mute cries be it of love or hate.

“Since it was obvious that there would be some response from the world, and even Israel's allies, to such a brazen assault on civilians, did the Israeli leadership suddenly suffer from a bout of collective madness or was there some hidden agenda behind the Gaza war?”

Nothing other than hate. Hate begets hate. Only prophets teaches how to beget love out of hate.

“Was the Gaza war used to test new weapons such as dense inert metal explosive (DIME) bombs?”

Motivated by hate --- convenient isn’t it?

“Will there be an investigation into Israel's illegal use of white phosphorus against civilians?”
”Will there be an investigation to determine if Israel used depleted uranium in Gaza?”

These investigations will cheer the Zionists up. It will occupy everybody’s attention. They are freed from prying eyes and medaling hands, and have a free hand to plot and execute the next phase of their agendas.

”And if it is proven that Israel used depleted uranium in Gaza, does this mean that the Israelis are thinking the unthinkable, namely the Samson Option?”

The Americans used that in Iraq. What’s Samson Option?”

“The Samson Option is a mutually assured destruction plan devised by the Zionists many years ago to be implemented if Israel ever finds itself on the verge of collapse and total defeat.

In the doomsday scenario of the Samson Option, Israel would use its nuclear weapons against its enemies in Palestine and other countries, turning Palestine and other parts of the region into irradiated wastelands.

Although no one can predict the future, it appears that nothing will be the same in the post-Gaza world.

Be hopeful, be positive, but be prepared for the worst since the world is entering uncharted territory. Welcome to the post-Gaza world.”

O God, the God of all creations, Your love is infinite. Surely your love smothers any and all hate.


Something On Post-Gaza, Hamas, Hizbullah, Iran, Israel & USA. said...

Former CIA operative ROBERT BAER on Iran and "You can't talk about the reality of Israel."

Omid Memarian (of IPS – Inter Press Service) interviews former CIA operative ROBERT BAER

BERKELEY, California, Jan 23 (IPS) - "Obama is going to have continuous pressure from Israel to attack Iran and, in some way, their nuclear facilities, and this is going to be tied up with Gaza and Lebanon," according to Robert Baer, a former top Central Intelligence Agency operative and the author of "The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower."

In an interview with IPS, Baer discussed the regional implications of the Gaza conflict and his take on Iran's Revolutionary Guard, Hamas and Hezbollah, three major groups in the Middle East which have been called terrorist organisations.

Excerpts from the interview follow.

IPS: Some analysts believe that attacking Hamas in Gaza, two years after the 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah, is a part of a bigger plan which will end with attacking Iran's nuclear facilities. Is Israel walking this path?

Robert Baer: No. I think that there is a military veto in attacking Iran. It's just not possible.

IPS: Why is that impossible?

RB: Well, for one thing, we know there will be an Iranian reaction in the Gulf. Iran will not be attacked like Hamas and just respond locally. It will respond internationally. It has no choice. This is their deterrence power. In Iran, it is very important to understand a lot of lessons.

If you look on the IRGC [Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps] website, you see the lessons they learned from the Iran-Iraq War. These wars are wars of attrition; they go on forever. You just can't win them, especially against the United States. So they have developed secondary asymmetrical warfare ability, guerilla warfare, which is very effective.

You know some of the best minds in Iran went into the Pasdaran [Revolutionary Guards], and they weren't necessarily fanatics. In a sense, they were much more nationalists. And in my experience, these people in the Pasdaran, in the operational level, are probably the most capable, intelligent/guerilla force/political thinkers in the Middle East, including Israel and Jordan. And they knew exactly what they were doing. And they do not clearly fit in to any political definitions in Iran.

IPS: Is the possibility of a limited attack on Iran's nuclear facilities by Israel also out of question? Especially given what we learned in a recent New York Times article that last year, Israeli leaders asked President Bush to carry out such an attack, though the president did not accept.

RB: Totally out of the question. Even Bush understood this. The New York Times is right when it says that Bush vetoed an Israeli attack, simply because there is a balance of power in the Middle East between the U.S. and Iran, and it's a fairly even balance of power. I mean not in terms of aircraft tanks or submarines, but in a monopoly of violence, there is equality.

There is no question there is equality. We could bomb Tehran, but what does that get you? Nothing. It's sort of like bombing the U.N. compound in Gaza by Israel. What does that give the Israelis? Nothing. Yeah they could destroy it, but what does that give them? Hamas still is going to exist.

You can bomb all military bases in Iran over a period of two weeks, but Iran is still there - it still has the ability to project power, project its will and maybe even come out of that type of conflict even stronger. And Iran's power is so economical, the price of oil is not going to make any difference, simply because the idea of arming Hezbollah or supporting Hamas in Damascus is nothing in terms of money. I mean the price of oil could go down to 10 dollars, and it's still an affordable defence for Iran.

IPS: Obama has repeatedly mentioned talking to Iranian leaders and bringing change to U.S. foreign policy. How could the designation of Dennis Ross as a key advisor on Iran policy contribute to his promises?

RB: Dennis Ross - the important thing is the Israelis are comfortable with him. If a dialogue with Iran occurs, they know he won't betray them. I mean they have had years and years of testing this guy. He's Jewish, he's been honest with the Israelis; he's gone along with their projects, even the crazy ones. If a dialogue is open, the Israelis know they won't be surprised. If Obama had brought someone new in, some professor from Harvard that the Israelis didn't know, they would immediately freeze him out and there would be huge political blowbacks.

IPS: Regarding Ross's positions on certain issues in the Middle East and particularly Iran over the past decade, how will Obama be able to adopt a new foreign policy path in the region?

RB: Well, he [Obama] needs the backing of the Democratic Party to get these things through politically, and that's why he has brought in people like Dennis Ross and Denny Blair, the Director of National Intelligence, simply because he needs that political backing. He cannot bring in untried people and run them against the Democratic Party, because if there is an opening with Iran, there will be a connivance of Israel, maybe a silent one, simply because the Israelis have to go along.

In American politics, you can't do anything in the Middle East without the approval of Tel Aviv, at least on some level. It's impossible. I mean, I cannot think of a country that is so beholden to a small country like this, even a superpower, in all of history. I can't even think of it.

IPS: And why is that?

RB: Look at New York City. Look at the major newspapers. They have a Zionist agenda. They do. I'm not Jewish. I'm not anything. I don't care about the Israelis. And I'm not anti-Semitic. It's just a fact. I suggested to my publisher writing a book on Israel, and he said forget it. You can't talk about the reality of Israel. The only place you can talk about the reality of Israel is in Israel. They tell you things you will never hear in the United States.

IPS: Like what?

RB: For instance, why are people on Gaza so unhappy? Well, if you had to live in a prison, wouldn't you be unhappy? You would never get that in the New York Times. Look at the New York Times; it's almost an extension of Israel.

IPS: What is the impact of the Gaza conflict on the future of Iran-Israel and United States relations? Have the recent attacks destroyed Hamas entirely?

RB: No, it's impossible. Hamas is an idea. Hamas is not an organisation. Hamas is an idea, and unless the Israelis go in and force 1.5 million people into Egypt, they will never subdue Gaza. They can go in and they can slaughter the leadership and put 10,000 people in jail, and Hamas will come out stronger. The losers in this will be Fatah.

IPS: What are the main characteristics of Hamas and Hezbollah's military and political behaviour?

RB: They redefined the idea of warfare in geography. The fact that Hezbollah dug into caves or the fact that they use fiber optics to communicate shows enormous sophistication and primitive warfare in combination. I mean, what army in the world uses fiber optics except Hezbollah? You can't intercept fiber optics. There is nothing you can do.

You look at [Hebollah leader Hassan] Nasrallah, and he has redefined Islamic politics because he's gone into an alliance with a Christians. Bin Laden wants to kill Christians; I'm going to reduce it to that. Nasrallah is looking at them as allies.

Salam perjuangan,

It is a relief to see the Zionists draw back their suppression. But how long will it take before the next attack will commence. Pemuda IKS has a strong feeling that this "peace idea" is temporary.

Kudos to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan for his position on the holocaust in Gaza said...

Kudos to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan for his position on the holocaust in Gaza…. a position that resulted in a hero’s welcome on his return home. … … … …

“The world has not respected the political will of the Palestinian people,” the premier told The Washington Post. “On the one hand, we defend democracy and we try our best to keep democracy in the Middle East, but on the other hand we do not respect the outcome of . . . the ballot box. Palestine today is an open-air prison. Hamas, as much as they tried, could not change the situation. Just imagine, you imprison the speaker of a country as well as some ministers of its government and members of its parliament. And then you expect them to sit obediently?”

“There had not been any casualties in Israel since the cease-fire of June 2008,” Erdogan said. “The Israelis claim that missiles were being sent [from Gaza]. I asked Prime Minister Olmert, how many people died as a result of those missiles? …The United Nations Security Council makes a decision, and Israel announces it does not recognize the decision. I’m not saying that Hamas is a good organization and makes no mistakes. They have made mistakes. But I am evaluating the end result.”

“We have a serious relationship [with Israel],” Erdogan told the Post. “But the current Israeli government should check itself. They should not exploit this issue for the upcoming elections in Israel.”
The above quotes are taken from THIS HaAretz report….
The following is from THIS report found at the Palestinian Think Tank site…..

Erdogan: One minute.

Moderator: Mr. President, well, you know

Erdodan: One minute, one minute! No! One minute.

Moderator: Ok, but I want you not to speak more than one minute.

Erdogan: Mr. Peres, you are older than me. Your voice is very loud. I know that you are speaking aloud because of the requirement of a sense of guilt. My voice will not be that loud. About murdering, you know killing very well. I am well aware how you murdered children on beaches. Two former prime ministers of your country had important sayings to me. You have former prime ministers who say When I entered Palestine over armed combat cars, I consider myself more and more pleased. I can give their names, maybe some of you wonder. Besides, I condemn those of you who applaud this persecution. Because applauding these killers who murdered those children, who massacred those people is, I believe, also another crime committed against humanity. Look, we cannot disregard a reality here. Here, I jotted down a lot of notes, but I dont have time to answer all of them. But, I will say you only two things:

Moderator: Excuse me Prime Minister, we can’t start the debate again.

Erdogan: Excuse me. First, excuse me, do NOT interrupt me! First, The Old Testament says in the 6th commandment: You shall not kill! But there is murder here. Second, this is also very interesting. Gilad Atzmon, a Jew himself, says: Israeli barbarity is far beyond even ordinary cruelty. Besides, Avi Shlaim, Professor of Oxford who performed his military duty in Israeli army, says in the Guardian the following:

Moderator: Prime Minister, Prime Minister. I wanna ask to our host.

Erdogan: Israel became a gangster state. (to the moderator) I thank you, too. For me, Davos is done for me from now on. I will not come again. You all know this in this way. You are not letting us speak. (Showing Peres) He spoke for 25 minutes, but you let me speak 12 minutes. No way!
