History

The ‘Jerusalem Post’ is telling us this morning that, “coordination is putting Israel ahead in the media war”.(1) The media that the Zionists are talking about is, of course, the drivel that is pumped out by many of the television stations, which Zionists either own or control and I am actually pleasantly surprised at how objective newspapers such as the ‘Guardian’ and ‘Independent’ appear to be. Now what would CNN, Fox, BBC, ZDF, Phoenix and the rest have us believe between our diet of chocolate and soap? Well, it is telling us that Ashkelon is being bombed by “terrorists” from Gaza and if “Joe Soap” knew just a wee bit about history he might stop and think and say, “Wait, isn’t that the old Arab city of Askaalan that used to be famous for its weaving industry?” “Bingo” and it was ethnically cleansed in 1948 and most of its inhabitants ended up in what is now a cesspool called Gaza.
They want us to believe that the Palestinians don’t have a history and that Israel’s history goes all the way back to, Abraham, Moses and a few other bearded fellows who, if they were alive today, would probably make Osama bin Laden look like a wooly thinking liberal, as, indeed, some of the “settlers” prancing around on the West Bank make him look, and, of course, there was the Holocaust. Well, good luck with the “media war” Israel but it really doesn’t wash; a “biblical claim” to someone elses land is absurd, the Holocaust has nothing to do with Zionism and a lot of those people being terrorised in Gaza are the sons and daughters of those who were forced off of their land 60 years ago and not descended from a people who, supposedly, had to leave a couple of thousand years ago.
Now, please don’t insult us with your whining and your, “what would you do, if terrorists were bombing you every day? We only want to live in peace with our neighbours.” The hypocrisy actually sounds sickening and the missile that landed in Ashkelon might have been fired by someone whose family came from Askaalan and we don’t even have to think of the blockades, the fences, the bullying and the murdering that has been going on ever since. Finally, if you did know your history, you would know that there weren’t a lot of Islamists around in Palestine until recently. Still, maybe there is something in the “gobblydegook” books after all and is there not a bit about reaping what you sow? The death toll in Gaza is approaching 400 and Israel wants to live in peace and security. The mind boggles and the ethnic cleansing that began in 1948 continues.

The map shows the main refugee routes in 1948. The cleansing continues and one wonders what Israel’s real intentions for Gaza are?

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
