The longer diplomacy stalls, the higher the chances that Israel and Hamas will be drawn into a deadly, drawn-out war, with civilians – and increasingly children – its greatest victims
(IrishTimes) – In the neighbourhood, they used to call Mohammad Al-Bakr “The Prince”. The scrawny 11-year-old, the only son of Ramez and Salwa, was in line to take over the fisherman’s mantle that had passed down three generations and was now, due to his father’s chronic back problems, soon to be his. He was good at school, and much of his free time was spent at the nearby beach, where all the Al-Bakr children swam and played football. When it was busy, he made some pocket money by selling tea on the beach, and it was his dream one day to open a fish shop. Read the rest of this entry »
(GlobalResearch) - The signatories to this statement, all academics at Israeli universities, wish it to be known that they utterly deplore the aggressive military strategy being deployed by the Israeli government. The slaughter of large numbers of wholly innocent people, is placing yet more barriers of blood in the way of the negotiated agreement which is the only alternative to the occupation and endless oppression of the Palestinian people. Israel must agree to an immediate cease-fire, and start negotiating in good faith for the end of the occupation and settlements, through a just peace agreement. Read the rest of this entry »

(JohnPilger) - The other night, I saw George Orwells’s ’1984′ performed on the London stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell’s warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, “To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country.” Read the rest of this entry »

Shadow forces are using conquer-and-divide tactics to pit us against each other for their own nefarious ends
(SteveWatson) - Shadow forces are using conquer-and-divide tactics to pit us against each other for their own nefarious ends.

(ZeroHedge) – After conducting countless sorties and bombing raids aimed at Hamas operatives in Gaza during the fifth day of Operation Protective Edge, but resulting in well over a hundred innocent civilian deaths in the past week, Israel, realizing it is not generating any brownie points with the international “humanitarian” media, finally did what it had threatened to do over the last few days – launch a ground assault.

Editor’s Note: This page will be updated to reflect new information.
(GlobalPost) – Israeli air strikes have killed 84 Palestinians and wounded 600 others in three days of attacks.
Those numbers don’t convey the horror of what’s happening right now in Gaza. Neither do most of the photographs you’ll find in news media. Streets and buildings have been blasted to rubble, yes. People are broken and mourning. Those things must be documented. But too often, we hide from the most graphic scenes of violence and death.
This page will do that documenting, and it will be updated as new images continue to appear. This is the cost of war. Read the rest of this entry »
