Just days after the american elections and just before israeli -elections-.. why do these wars of aggression suddenly pop up just before an israeli election?
I think the likud party wants to stay in power so they create a war, just like duhbya did when he created the 1st surge in 03/04 Republicans did not want to lose the war so the "surge" brought them out to vote in droves, along with simultaneously swift boating Kerry.
This all happened in aug and sept.. just before our elections.

So on cue, the israeli gvt shoots and kills a 12 yo girl playing soccer a few weeks ago and then a few weeks later they are on the brink of a ground invasion, just like what happened in 08, and BIBI won then too....They provoke a war always prior to elecions- with hammas so the right wing likud party can stay in power. the people vote for them because they are fearful of palestineans just like the US gvt uses al queda- on us.. this is why they dont want peace. the likuds are neocons.

Good journalism.

This TV report echoes other information I have read on the situation. Max Blumenthal drew attention to the fact that these events are driven by internal Israeli politics that he describes as "classic" behaviour by Israel's leaders. This is also something I have read in the articles of a friend who is a political prisoner in Bolivia and an Israeli dissident who has survived two assassination attempts by Mossad.

His latest three articles are about the current situation and you can link to other writings from them that give an in depth understanding of how Israeli leaders think and why they do what they do.




One thing Max did not mention is that the current Israeli operation that started on November 14 has a name: Pillar of Cloud, which is an effort to imply that this is the work of God by referring to the pillar of cloud that guided the ancient Israelites during their wanderings in the wilderness after they left Egypt.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)



Okay, stop it.

I am a critic of Israel, no doubt about it. One of the things I can't stand in regards to the Israeli government? Dishonesty. As it turns out, I dislike dishonesty no matter who's being dishonest.

Call me crazy, but I seem to recall Israel's missile strikes being in retaliation for rockets fired from Gaza. Gaza, not Israel, broke the truce first - unless, of course, you're going to say that missiles from Gaza don't count because they're not Israel.


Did you watch it?


Watched the video, doubted it, did some quick Googling, and as far as I can tell, you are indeed correct. My apologies, and please forgive me for the false accusation. I genuinely had no idea that anything had happened prior to the Gaza rocket attacks.

It goes to show just how effective the media-government complex is, that's for sure.
