Israel’s attack on humanitarian aid ship–> 20 killed , several injured; Reminds us of Stern Gang Activities

Another blow to humanity by The Terrorist Forces of Israel , reminding world of their Stern gang past of their armed groups. Today Israel has attacked Freedom Flotilla , a humanitarian aid ship, in the international waters. 20 innocent lives were taken by Israel in this terrorist strike and several innocent people including human rights workers, aid workers, journalists and members of international civil society got injured. 

Many people on board are missing and no information is available regarding their safety and location. A well-known Pakistani TV anchor Talat Hussain, Aaj TV producer and a representative of a Pakistani NGO are also among the missing. Journalists and civil society have shown strong protests all over the world. USA, the prime supporter of Israel’s terrorist activities is still not showing responsiblity as a so-called advocate of freedom and justice. Lets see how so-called civilized world controls and answer this act of barbaric terrorism shown by an illegitimate state.

What else do you need to declare Israel a terrorist state (if it is really a state though).
Use of chemical weapons is not allowed in any war specially when it is being used against innocent civilians including children and women.

Gaza – Ma’an – Twenty five Gazans have been killed since midnight Sunday morning and at least 80 injured by new weapons that set fire to the buildings and people they hit.

The Israeli Phosphoric bombs have not yet been used in the Gaza offensive. They have been fired intensively on the Ghuza’a and Abasan villages east of Khan Younis.

Medical sources at Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis said most of the morning’s casualties were women and children. Medical staff appealed to international agencies for new medical supplies to deal with the burn victims pouring into the hospital

Sunday dawned with six more Palestinians confirmed dead in Gaza, mainly from Khuza’a village east of Khan Younis.

Overnight Israeli warplanes shifted their sights to civilian homes in southern Gaza, then after dawn strikes began in the north. Ground troops advanced towards Gaza City during the night. One contingent withdrew northward at dawn, while a second front southwest of Gaza City continued to advance to an abandoned Israeli settlement south of the city.

Those dead in the southern Strip include 41-year-old Hanan An-Najjar and another unidentified man. At least 50 were injured as Israeli strikes hit a dozen homes in Khuza’a village, many of which continue to burn after the near-dawn airstrikes.

The body of the 17-year-old Usama Abu Rajileh was identified among the dead in Khan Younis.
Attacks in the north began by killing four members of the Bashir family when Israeli airstrikes struck the family home in the Al-Karama neighborhood northwest of Gaza City shortly after sunrise on Sunday. The family was in the home at the time and an unknown number were injured.

Witnesses said Ala Bashir “Abu Sheib,” his wife, mother-in-law and son were killed in the strike. Several other homes in the area were hit.

Strikes then shifted to the northern border-town of Beit Lahiya where locals reported the use of Phosphoric bombs, which set hit homes ablaze. The strikes killed at least three from the Ma’rouf and Ghaban families and injured dozens.

Ground offensive retreats north after night of attacks

Witnesses said Israeli troops withdrew from As-Sudaniyah area in the north of Gaza City after a night of shooting. Locals said several homes were raided and their residents massacred after which homes were burned. Medical sources have been unable to confirm the number of dead.

Some of the known raids include the home of Ahmad Aj-Ja’bari of an Al-Qassam Brigades member in the eastern areas of Gaza City. His home was set on fire as troops withdrew.

In the southwest quarter of Gaza City clashes were heard in the Al-Sheikh Ajlein neighborhood as Israeli troops approached the evacuated Netsarim settlement south of the city.

‘We’re wading in death, blood and amputees.’–> Wher can we find humanity in the capitalist world.

Though there is a very limited access to the Gaza area for media still there are reports of Palestinian Genocide by Israel Terrorist forces are coming.

There are news that Israel has attacked a UN run (not Hamas run) school (not missle factory) and killed people there but still Mr. Bush thinks Israel has the right to do it. Israel is targetting civilians incluling children and women,hospitals,schools, shops and what ever is labled as Palestine and the so called civilized world with dead souls running it still doing lip service and putting blames on the innocent Palestine.

I don’t know how and what will stop Israel because from weapons to money they are getting support from the so called civilized world and one can just think Where can we find humanity in the capitalist world?

It seems they don’t think others are humans as well.

Below is an article which gives some idea of what is happening there.

 

‘We’re wading in death, blood and amputees. Pass it on – shout it out’

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article5454671.ece

 

 

Amid the tidal wave of human misery swamping Gaza City’s central hospital a horrified Norwegian volunteer doctor found a minute to type a text message on his mobile phone to friends back home.

“We are wading in death, blood, and amputees. Many children. A pregnant woman. I have never experienced anything so terrible. Now we hear tanks. Pass it on, send it around, shout it out. Anything. DO SOMETHING! DO MORE! We are living in a history book now, all of us.” It was signed Mads Gilbert, one of two Norwegian doctors toiling relentlessly alongside exhausted Palestinian medics.

So far, despite a flurry of diplomatic activity, no one has done anything. As Israel and Hamas fought a bloody battle to the death on Gaza’s tightly packed streets and alleys, there was no slowing of the flow of broken bodies in al-Shifa hospital. To make matters worse, the United Nations said that Gaza was about to run out of food, water and basic medicines in a matter of days.

Israel has said that it is making surgical strikes to cut Hamas out of the Gaza society. It is a brutal surgery, though, with blunt instruments and without anaesthetic. Entire families vanish beneath the rubble of broken homes. With Hamas’s die-hard fighters taking cover among a terrified civilian population, there is nowhere to run.

Bassim Naim, the Hamas Health Minister, ordered Hamas fighters yesterday not to use ambulances to move around after his nephew, Arafat Abed el-Daim, a paramedic, was killed when an Israeli tank shell hit his ambulance. As mourners gathered at a traditional tent to pay their respects to the young man’s family, another Israeli shell struck the area, killing three people and wounding 40, medics said.

“We were sitting in the mourning tent when suddenly they bombed us. We ran to rush the casualties to hospital but they bombed again,” Jabr al-Daim, an uncle, said.

In the al-Shifa mortuary — which is quickly becoming as overpopulated as the tiny territory that it serves — the father of the Samoudi family wept, speechless, over the corpses of his three children, the youngest a baby, the eldest just a few years old.

“They are still digging his wife and his other kids out of the rubble,” a medic said. The family was obliterated in Zaytoun, where fighting has been particularly heavy.

Saber Abu Aisha, whose brother was killed with his two wives and four children when an F16 rocket struck the basement directly beneath his apartment, vented his anger in the mortuary, where grieving relatives kissed their loved ones goodbye on the floors and in freezers. “The Israelis claim they are not killing civilians but that is all they are killing. They are barbarians, and the whole world should do something,” he said.

“We are a family, we have nothing to do with the resistance or this fighting,” his brother, Amr, said. “It is random killing to break the will of the Palestinian people.”

But the killing went on, as Israeli bombers blew up the houses of Hamas military leaders, often destroying nearby buildings.

Later in the day ambulance drivers brought in the body of a pregnant mother and her four children, killed in the Shurjaiyah area. Palestinian medics say that since Israel launched its ground offensive on Saturday night, 28 children and 13 women have been killed. More than 100 children have died since Israel began Operation Cast Lead ten days ago. One bereaved father who had lost 13 relatives in an explosion east of Gaza City pleaded with his dead son to answer him. “Get up, boy, get up. Please get up. I am your dad and I need you.”

Thousands of Gazans have fled their homes to escape the immediate onslaught of the Israeli tanks battling Hamas fighters who refuse to halt the rocket fire that has provoked this campaign. The UN refugee agency has quickly converted its schools into shelters but thousands more are leaving their homes to be nearer to the shops that are still open or to the ever-decreasing number of areas that have a few hours of electricity a day. Travelling across town is a potentially lethal undertaking.

The refugee agency has all but run out of wheat to supply Gaza’s bakeries, while the World Food Programme has stocks but cannot reach the warehouses because of the shelling. People wait in queues for hours to buy a loaf of bread. “I’ve been here for three hours and I will have to wait longer. Maybe a missile will bomb us so we can be rid of such a miserable life,” said Abu Othman, a father of seven, as he queued for bread. He said that his anger at Hamas’s rocket fire had been supplanted by a new rage. “I used to criticise the rockets. Maybe I still do but not like before. Now I want to see buses blown up in Israel,” he said.

Israel and its banks have cut off supplies of cash to Gaza, meaning that people increasingly have no money to buy the meagre supplies available. Maxwell Gaylard, the UN humanitarian co-ordinator, said that a quarter of a million people were without running water. “There is an overall atmosphere of fear,” he said.
