“Ruling Bloc Urged Israel to Kill Sayyed Nasrallah”

10 02 2008

The February 14 bloc insisted on exposing its role in the 2006 Israeli aggression against Lebanon, after some of its figures denied what the head of the Winograd commission said about the existence of a “classified part of the war report which was not revealed so as not to “endanger Israel’s security and foreign relations.” However, does Eliyahu Winograd need to fabricate these words as some February 14 figures have claimed?
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had made an extraordinary effort to ban the publication of his full statement to the Winograd Committee, because of the “sensitive information” it contains pertaining to the war.

Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit suggested obliterating a Gaza neighborhood in response to Saturday’s Qassam fire on Sderot, saying “any other country would have already gone in and level the area, which is exactly what I thing the IDF should do – decide on a neighborhood in Gaza and level it.””

Do you see the trend? Israel does, afterall, adopt terrorist tactics. Just in case you doubted it.

“Shas Minister Yitzhak Cohen called for a complete power cut in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, saying that “as long as Sderot is burning we must suffocate the infrastructures in Gaza until all those who fire Qassams will put down their weapons in broad daylight.””

The Silent Suffering

The yellow iron gate between the village and the main road was open that night. The Mercedes raced toward its destination; Sana held Khaled, panting and convulsing, in the back seat. After about fifteen minutes, they reached the Atara checkpoint north of Ramallah, one of the toughest and cruellest in the West Bank, especially of late. At this hour there were no other cars waiting.
The driver stopped at the stop sign in front of the checkpoint, as required. After about a minute, a soldier emerged and approached them. In the back seat, Khaled’s condition was worsening. His breath was getting shorter and his shaking was getting stronger.

“Where are you going?” the soldier asked. The driver replied in his meagre Hebrew, “To the hospital in Ramallah.” The soldier asked for the ID cards of all the passengers. Daoud appealed to him, “Before the ID’s, listen to me. We have a very sick baby in the car and I want to get him to the hospital on time, before it’s too late.”

The soldier heard him, says Daoud, but didn’t show any signs of interest. He didn’t even bother to glance in the back seat, to see their convulsing baby. “He didn’t care. He wasn’t deaf. He heard, but he didn’t even ask, ‘Where’s the baby?'” Read the rest of this entry »

The Lebanon Street

11 01 2008


Let me set a scenario. If someone one day took your iPod away from you and you tried to negotiate with him to return it to you and they promise you that you will have it back in 14 days. After this time limit expires, you ask for it back but you gain no reply. Then some months later, after continuously trying to convince the thief to return your iPod and they either don’t respond or refuse to do so, and after reporting the incident to the police they also do not respond, you decide to take matters in your own hand.

So one day you creep into this persons house and take your iPod back, but they notice. The thief tried to attack you but in the process you end up giving them a slap and running away back to your own home. The next day, they approach you with another person, who is supposed to be your friend too. The thief punches your face blue, and your friend decides to not stop the fight but rather fuel it by giving the thief a knuckleduster and a knumbchuck to beat you up with.

Would you, as a sane person, ever talk to that ‘friend’ who had just betrayed you so brutally?
