Soon after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed near Donetsk, Ukraine on July 18, killing 298 people, the BBC website quickly, and rightly, set up a 'LIVE' feed with rolling reports and commentary on the disaster. This was clearly an important and dramatic event involving horrific loss of life with serious political implications. The public would, of course, be searching for the latest news. However, since July 8, ten days prior to the crash, Israeli armed forces had been bombarding the trapped civilian population of Gaza with airstrikes, drone strikes and naval shelling. As the massive Israeli assault ramped up on July 9, the World section of the BBC News website had this as its headline: 'Israel under renewed Hamas attack'. By July 18, around 300 people had been killed in Gaza, 80% of them civilians. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a key political issue of our time, one that was clearly developing by the minute after July 8. And yet at no point had the BBC set up a 'LIVE' feed with rolling news.
Dov Lior, a racist Israeli rabbi from the West Bank settlement Kiryat Arba, recently posted a Halakhic ruling allowing to kill innocent civilians, after being asked about the “war” (it’s a massacre) in Gaza. Here are a few lines from the ruling:
“The Torah of Israel guides us in all walks of life, private and public, on how to behave during war and also how to keep moral standards. The Maharal from Prague (Rabbi Judah Loew), in his book Gur Arye, clearly writes that… in all wars the attacked people are allowed to attack fiercely the people from whom the attackers came from and they do not have to check if he personally belongs to the fighters. Therefore, during war the attacked people are allowed to punish the enemy population in any punishment it finds worthy, such as denying supplies or electricity and also to bomb the whole area according to the discretion of the army minister and not to just simply endanger soldier’s lives but to take crushing deterrence steps to exterminate the enemy. In the case of Gaza, the Minister of Defense will be allowed to instruct even the destruction of Gaza so that the south will no longer suffer and to avoid harm to our people who have been suffering for so long from the surrounding enemies.” Any kind of talk about humanism and consideration are moot when speaking of saving our brothers in the south and in the rest of the country and bringing back quiet to our country.” (Source)

Palestinian Centre for Human Rights: On the 16th Day of the Israeli Offensive (Report)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fumes over the UN Human Rights Council’s plan to strike up an investigation into Tel Aviv’s human rights violations in the Gaza Strip. ● Netanyahu vented his anger on Thursday at a joint press conference with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond in al-Quds (Jerusalem). "
It's a travesty of justice; it's a travesty of fairness; it's a travesty of common sense; it's a travesty of truth," Netanyahu said. His remarks came after the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) launched a commission on Wednesday to investigate Israel’s war crimes in Gaza. Netanyahu once again put the blame on the Palestinian resistance groups, including Hamas, for the death of Palestinian civilians.
Israeli Professor Suggests Rape as 'Terror Deterrent'. Mordechai Kedar: Sex Assault on Relatives Will Stop Attacks. ● “The only thing that can deter terrorists, like those who kidnapped the children and killed them, is the knowledge that their sister or their mother will be raped.” This assertion was made by Middle East scholar Dr. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University on an Israel Radio program. “It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East,” added Kedar, of Bar-Ilan’s Department of Arabic. The program “Hakol Diburim” (“It’s All Talk”) was broadcast on July 1, immediately after the discovery of the bodies of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrah, who were kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank. It dealt, among other things, with the question of how Hamas can be deterred.
Referring to the ongoing Israeli war on Gaza, Cunningham said the Zionist entity is putting once again “on display” its crimes against humanity “in the most despicable and barbaric way.” He said a truce between the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and the Israeli regime could not fix the oppression of Palestinians, adding, “There is a hemorrhage of human life that requires deep intervention.” Nearly 750 Palestinians have been killed in 17 days of Israeli aerial and ground offensives in the besieged Gaza Strip.
France became the first country in the world to ban pro Palestinian demonstrations …. does this make them ‘The Only Democracy In Europe?’ (sic) ● Thousands of protesters were expected to march in Paris over the weekend and call for an end to the violence in Gaza, as it emerged on Friday that the Israeli military had killed 296 Palestinians in the renewed conflict – including a baby, four children and a 70-year-old woman since Thursday. One Israeli civilian and one IDF soldier have died in the 11-day conflict. Citing a “threat to public order”, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve backed the police ban on the widely-advertised mass demonstrations, after members of the Jewish Defence League (LDJ) and pro-Palestinian groups clashed last Sunday. He also advised other police prefects to consider banning planned rallies on a “case by case” basis.
Kumaran Ira ■ French Socialist Party government attacks anti-Gaza war protests || The police attack on a march against the Gaza war in Paris Saturday, after President François Hollande of the Socialist Party (PS) personally endorsed a ban on the protest, directly implicates the French government in the Israeli state’s mass murder in Gaza. Hundreds of Palestinian civilians, including children, have been killed and thousands wounded in the Israeli bombardment and ground invasion of Gaza. On Saturday, thousands of people defied the PS ban, marching in cities throughout France to show both their anger at Israel’s offensive in Gaza and their indignation at the PS ban. Protests also took place internationally, in the Middle East and in Europe including in London, Rome and Brussels. Protesters met with violent repression by CRS riot police in Paris, who arrested 38 protesters.
PCR interviewed by Norbert Lichtner, Slovokia Media for Czech and Slovak audience: here
An Israeli rabbi has issued a "ruling" that allows the killing of innocent civilians in the besieged Gaza Strip. ● Dov Lior, an Israeli rabbi from the illegal settlement of Kiryat Arba in the occupied West Bank, said in the ruling that it is “okay” to kill innocent civilians and destroy Gaza. The "ruling" also says that it is not necessary to check if the people targeted are civilians or non-civilians. The rabbi’s ruling "authorizes" all means of targeting the people, such as “denying supplies or electricity.” He further says military forces are allowed “to bomb the whole area according to the discretion of the army...” “In the case of Gaza,” the rabbi said, the Israeli military officials “will be allowed to instruct even the destruction of Gaza.”

"The big question is - if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? - probably yes," he tweeted. In a follow-up message, he wrote "Ich bin ein #palestinian - the West must make up its mind - which side is it on?" The remarks were immediately condemned by other MPs, including the Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps [Jew], who [stupidly] referred to it as an “incitement to violence” and “completely irresponsible.”
Khalid Amayreh ■ I am not going to discuss Israeli "rationales" behind slaughtering Palestinians. Israel has been slaughtering innocent civilians since time immemorial. Israel and her supporters are also quite skillful in fornicating with words and with the truth. The naked reality is that Israel is murdering civilians knowingly and deliberately, taking advantage of disgracefully shameless reactions by the bulk of the international community to the genocidal atrocities. I am not accusing Jews of shipping Palestinian civilians to Auschwitz, Bergen Belsen, Mauthausen and Dachau. However, it is a clarion fact that Israel is bringing Auschwitz and other concentration camps to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods, hospitals and mosques. Nonetheless, I do know that no matter how many Palestinian children and civilians the Nazis of our time murder in full view of the world, [this] will [not] be sufficient to move the whoring international community to take a meaningful action against Israel. Indeed, the governments and leaders of most influential states in this world, including the leaders of the U.S., UK. France, Germany, Russia and China are too morally bankrupt to be counted on to restrain Israeli monstrosity, let alone take a proactive action against it. In the final analysis, Israel wouldn't have reached this level of nefariousness and ghoulishness had it not been for the active support and backing of the Nazi-like entity by these immoral entities.
Gunshots were fired into Al Jazeera's office in Gaza Tuesday, one day after Israel's foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, called for the network to be shut down. Al Jazeera evacuated the building after two “very precise shots” hit its 11th floor offices. No one was killed in the incident, but according to Al Jazeera's press release, the gunshots panicked locals living in the building and led the Associated Press to vacate its offices in the same building. On Monday, Lieberman had compared the network’s coverage of the Gaza war to Nazi propaganda and accused it of terrorism.
A number of major US and European airlines are immediately suspending flights to and from Israel after a rocket attack near Ben-Gurion International Airport. US Airways, Lufthansa and Delta are some of the companies grounding their planes. The decision was taken following a warning from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), after a rocket fell in the city of Yehud, which is just five kilometers from the airport, Haaretz reported. The FFA has ordered US airlines not to fly to or from Ben Gurion Airport "for a period of up to 24 hours." Meanwhile, their European counterparts, the European Air Safety Agency (EASA) says it has issued a 'strong recommendation' to avoid Tel Aviv airport until further notice.

The War Criminals Who Rule America Prepare To Genocide The Palestinians For The Jews. No dissenting vote was cast, and no mention was made of the hundreds of Palestinian civilians, most of whom are women and children, that have been killed by Israel in the past ten days. Senate Resolution 498 was authored by Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), with additional support by Ben Cardin (D-MD) and son of former Republican party politician Ron Paul, Rand Paul (R-KY). Paul is urging the Senate to pass his own bill, S. 2265, which would end all U.S. foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority until Hamas is barred from the new Palestinian unity government, among other stipulations. The resolution was passed on the very same night Israel launched its current ground offensive into the Gaza Strip. (Source)
Al Jazeera: Israel confirms soldier missing as bombardment of Gaza continues || Since Israel’s air salvo against the Gaza Strip escalated into a growing ground invasion, the death toll is soaring. Sunday was the deadliest day yet of the war, and Monday is on track to pass it considerably. The death toll among Palestinians is up over 100 more today already, with the overall death toll now standing at 607 civilians, overwhelmingly civilians and including well over 100 children. Another seven Israeli soldiers were killed today as well, bringing the overall toll on the Israeli side to 25 soldiers, and two civilians.
The Saker ■ From Gaza to Donetsk || What is being murdered day after day after day in Gaza and Novorussia is not just children or civilians. It's decency, honor, freedom, dignity, truth, memory, kindness, compassion and beauty. They could not murder the Creator, so they take out their revenge on His creatures. What is being murdered today in Gaza and Novorussia is, I sincerely believe, simply humanity.
Gilad Atzmon ■ The End of Israel || IDF’s defeat in Gaza leaves the Jewish State with no hope. The moral is simple. If you insist on living on someone else’s land, military might is an essential ingredient to discourage the dispossessed from acting to reclaim their rights. The level of IDF casualties and the number of bodies of Israeli elite soldiers returning home in coffins send a clear message to both Israelis and Palestinians. Israeli military superiority belongs to the past. There is no future for the Jews-only-State in Palestine; they may have to try somewhere else.

Day 13 was the bloodiest so far. More than 100 Palestinians were killed in heavy bombardment and street battles in Gaza on Sunday and 13 Israeli soldiers were slain in the most intense day of fighting in Israelfs current offensive against Hamas, officials said. ● Israel said it pummeled a neighborhood in east Gaza because the warren of shops and concrete-block homes was the site of frequent rocket launches and concealed a network of tunnels dug by Hamas fighters and allied militant factions. When their troops went in, Israeli military officers say, they were surprised by the tenacity, training and weaponry of their opponents. They said Israeli soldiers were repeatedly hit by Gaza militants firing from windows, employing land mines and setting booby traps.

xymphora ■ Telegenically Dead Palestinians || "‘Telegenically Dead Palestinians’: Why Israel Is Losing the American Media War" I don't really agree with this. The Jew-controlled media has reached spectacular new lows of mendacity. The truth is sneaking in, but mostly through Twitter. I suspect Twitter will have to be shut down ('couldn't make any money with that business model'). Yesterday, big massacre, as if they are afraid they are running out of killing time. Today, direct attack on a working hospital.

Antiwar.com: 435 Palestinians, 18 Israelis Killed in Escalating Gaza "War" || The latest Israeli war in the Gaza Strip continues to escalate today, with 13 Israeli soldiers killed in overnight fighting in the strip, including seven killed when their APC drove over an explosive. The death toll on the Palestinian side is still soaring, with around 100 killed today, bringing the overall toll to 435 dead, and well over 2,000 wounded. The Red Cross is working to broker a ceasefire to allow the dead and wounded to be taken out of the battlefield. The toll on the Palestinian side is overwhelming civilian in nature, with an estimated 80 percent of the slain civilians. Of the 435, 112 were children. By contrast, the dead on the Israeli side are almost exclusively soldiers, with 16 troops killed and 2 civilians since the war began. The latest reports out of Gaza say Israeli forces are firing flechette shells now, which explode and spray out thousands of tiny darts to increase the number of casualties. The shells were fired near Khan Younis.
Demonstrations in London, Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool took issue with alleged “bias” towards Israel. More than 3,700 people signed up on Facebook to join the demonstration at Media City in Manchester on Saturday and similar events have also drawn crowds outside the BBC’s London headquarters.

Israel must attack Gaza even more mercilessly, expel the population and resettle the territory with Jews, the deputy speaker of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, has said. ● Moshe Feiglin, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party, makes the call in an article for the Israeli news website Arutz Sheva. Feiglin demands that Israel launch attacks “throughout Gaza with the IDF’s [Israeli army’s] maximum force (and not a tiny fraction of it) with all the conventional means at its disposal.” “After the IDF completes the ‘softening’ of the targets with its firepower, the IDF will conquer the entire Gaza, using all the means necessary to minimize any harm to our soldiers, with no other considerations,” Feiglin writes in one of several calls for outright war crimes.

Injured patients in the Gaza Strip are in dire need of medical supplies after Israeli warplanes and tanks bombed hospitals across the besieged region. ● This comes as a hospital in the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip was struck by Israeli artillery shells on Friday. Israel has "fired several shells" at the hospital, "causing heavy damage," media outlets quoted hospital director, Ayman Hemdan, as saying. Hundreds of patients were also evacuated after Israel bombed al-Wafa hospital several times on Thursday evening. Senior Palestinian officials have described the attacks as a "brazen violation of international norms." At least 274 Gazans have lost their lives so far and over 2,000 have been injured, most of them infants, children, women and the elderly. According to Palestinian medical sources around a quarter of the victims are children. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) says some 30,000 Gazans have headed to its shelters across the impoverished territory.

● On two consecutive days this week, journalists reporting from the Gaza war zone who evinced empathy for the Palestinians and less than unquestioning support for Israel were removed by television network executives. NBC News’ Ayman Mohyeldin, an award-winning Egyptian-born journalist who provided on-the-spot coverage of the Israeli invasion of Gaza in 2008-2009 and had distinguished himself for his objective reporting on the current Israeli war, was suddenly pulled from the region on Thursday. He was removed after he described via social media and video the murder Wednesday of four Palestinian children by Israeli gunboats as the youth, between the ages of 9 and 11 and all from the same family, played soccer on a Gaza beach near hotels used by foreign journalists.
● On Friday, CNN removed correspondent Diana Magnay from her post covering the Israeli invasion of Gaza. She was banished in retaliation for a tweet in which she described as “scum” Israelis who were cheering the bombing of Gaza and threatening to attack her if her report diverged from the Israeli government line. Magnay appeared on CNN Thursday, reporting from a hill overlooking the Israel-Gaza border. As she was reporting, Israelis could be heard cheering as missiles were fired at the Palestinian territory. After the live report, Magnay tweeted: “Israelis on hill above Sderot cheer as bombs land on Gaza; threaten our car if I say a word wrong. Scum.”

Justin Raimondo ■ A group of Palestinian boys is playing on the beach in Gaza, kicking a soccer ball around in the bright sunshine. But not for long: an Israeli missile hits a nearby shack, where their family members keep their fishing boats: it bursts into flames and the boys take off running. But they can’t run fast enough to evade the second shot: four are instantly killed, and several wounded. ● The shells were fired from an Israeli ship patrolling off the coast, which was no doubt equipped with the highest hi-tech monitoring system American tax dollars can buy. There isn’t any doubt that the Israelis knew just what they were doing and who they were targeting. ● What possible purpose can be served in killing children?" Because as a military doctrine terrorism works: it can cow a people into submission, it can cause them to give up and flee their homes – which is precisely what the Israelis want to accomplish in Gaza. ● Israel cannot be reformed or "saved": it can only be dismantled. The whole society is poisoned by hatred, racism, and a quasi-religious ideology rivaled in its violent fanaticism only by groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS. The Israelis are demonstrating this every day as they wantonly dismember Palestinian children while celebrating their own brutality. They don’t care what the West thinks – as long as the "aid" spigot isn’t turned off. They are sadists, pure and simple, who murder for the sheer joy of it. ● As such, the rest of humanity has only one option: to turn our backs on them, to boycott and isolate them, to sanction them and drive them out of the international community. A poll recently cited Israel as the main danger to peace on earth, and this is absolutely true. Until the world is rid of this nuclear-armed rogue state, none of us are safe.
CNN correspondent Diana Magnay hasn't tweeted since Thursday, when she referred to a group of Israelis who cheered the bombing of Gaza as "scum." And on Friday, the cable news channel said she's no longer covering the conflict. Magnay wrote the tweet shortly after she filmed a live shot from a hill near the Israel-Gaza border. During Magnay's report, cheers could be heard off-camera as a missile descended upon the Gaza Strip. "
And it is an astonishing, macabre and awful thing really to watch this display of fire in the air," she said. Not long after that on-air report, Magnay sent the tweet before deleting it a short time later. A screenshot of the tweet can be viewed at Mediaite. "

The death toll from ten days of Israeli attacks against the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip has reached 227, with more than 1,600 others having been injured. ● In the latest deaths, four members of the same family, including two children, were killed after Israeli warplanes fired missiles in Khan Yunis. Several others were also killed in Rafah. The new deaths follow the killings of four children between the ages of 9 and 11 after an Israeli naval ship fired multiple artillery shells, as they were playing on a beach in Gaza City. The attacks were witnessed by foreign journalists staying in Gaza. Since July 8, the Israeli regime has struck more than 1,800 targets across Gaza, which is home to around 1.8 million Palestinians. According to the UN humanitarian agencies, about a third of the dead are women and children. Some 18,000 people have taken shelter in Gaza schools. The Israeli military is going on with its airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip while Palestinians are responding by firing a barrage of rockets into Israel. ● Meanwhile, the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has slammed as illegal and unfounded an interpretation presented by an Israeli army spokesman who has said that the neighboring houses of Palestinians suspected of carrying out military activities were considered to be legitimate targets of attacks. Israel has blockaded Gaza since 2007, denying the Palestinian people there of their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.
