B'tselem: 163 Palestinians killed in July in Gaza, 36 minors
Remember this line from earlier?
"- While the battle is going on in the north of Israel, we'll use our ressources to uncover what's happening in Gaza. We'll see to that the military does not do things in Gaza while the people's attention is focused on Libanon, says Montelli."

Now the report are out (the date is actually two days ahead):
In July, the Israeli military killed 163 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, 78 of whom (48 percent) were not taking part in the hostilities when they were killed. Thirty-six of the fatalities were minors, and 20 were women. In the West Bank , 15 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in July. The number of Palestinian fatalities in July was the highest in any month since April 2002.

April 2002 being the month of the Jenin massacre.

4. Palestine mothers should tell their children never to resist the occupying
forces. Young men ask; "throw stone to the occupier and death here forth, mom, what did we grow up to be inside occupation, mom?"

5. I doubt that their mothers has any say in the matter
When injustice and violence reigns the young people will always rise up.

6. While people are quick to condemn the Palestinian reisitance...
me included, I can certainly see why they feel so desperate.

It's one thing to live the way they do, but it's another to live that way feeling no one cares enough to help you.

10. I've seen it. And it makes me enraged...
I cannot believe the way the US had manipulated and lied in an effort to make Israel look sympathetic. And the fact that the news agencies are essentially in collusion with AIPAC or under such pressure that they give in to this.


Watching CNN these days is actually painful. All I can see is the war presented as a battle of linquistics, like it's a game.

11. Yeah
and they are call terrorist because they cannot fight back.
Just kill themself by blowing themself up trying to kill as many hated enemies as possible.
You want to get shock
Go add up all the numbers of dead palestinain civilian for 50 years.

Go add up the numbers of peaceworkers kill.

When Isreal kill them the US is silent
When they blow themself up they are terrorist.

What you want them to do?
Are you really surprise that HAMA can win a fair election.

This is a sick world.
Where the poor and the powerless get treated like so much garbage.
When one allow the such mindset to flourish
One deserve someday to suffer for it
And when you scream hard and loud over the unfairness ........ can anyone hear you.
If no one does then this world is going to be a very sad place to live in for the peasant around the world.
It is a mental problems. One that is clear to me.
Why I even see and can hear the cries of the poor from US now
Who cares? Who cares?
Can one not admit to one self that what happen after Katrina does not reflect the moral of the US goverment.
But the mindset already there. Cause to them the poor the helpless the powerless are nothing but garbage. The less around the better.

15. Bingo.
And the ignorance that is inculcated into the minds of the self absorbed middle classes is the ultimate facilitator.
