Rózsa Flores Eduardo: Foszfor lövedékek csapodnak be egy Gázai ENSZ iskolába - Phosphorus shells' hit Gaza UN school

John Ging, az UNRWA, azaz az ENSZ Segélyező és Munkaközvetítő Hivatala Palesztin Menekültek Számára vezetője, leírja azokat a pillanatokat, közvetlenül a cionista támadás után, egy ENSZ iskola ellen amely menedékhelyként működött Beit Lahijjában.

Szóval, most mindenki láthatja miről beszélünk MI: foszfor lövedékek, iskola, ENSZ zászló -mely fabatkát sem ér-, gyermekek áldozatként, rémálom.
Sehol egy "terrorista", sehol egy HAMASZ harcos...
Csak a cionista szörnyszülött államocska amely nácit játszik a XXI. század elején!

És volt ismerősök, tán sosem volt barátok, akik mostanában -névtelenül- levelecskéket írogatnak nekem, hogy a zsidóknak ilyen meg olyan jogai...és, hogy 'áldozata' volnék a palesztin propagandának...Nekik üzenek most: ne írjanak többé! Szégyelljek magukat!
Én pontosan tudom mit miért teszek! Itt egy az áldozat, itt egy az igazság...és az nem zsidó, és az igazság nem a zsidóké. Többé, soha többé nem is lehet az.
Isten, az Egyetlen, legyen irgalmas minden hazudozóhoz...a bűnösök pedig elnyerik méltó bűntetetésüket.
Én ezt tudom!

Russia Says Hezbollah and Hamas are NOT Terrorists

MOSCOW - Russia on Friday published a list of 17 groups it regards as terrorist rganizations, but did not include the Palestinian militant movement Hamas or Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrilla group, both regarded as terrorists in Washington.
Separately, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Hezbollah must have a say in any agreements in the Middle East crisis, Russian news agencies reported - another sign of differences between Russia and the United States about the region.
"Any agreements must be coordinated with all the basic forces in Lebanon, including Hezbollah, as an organization that is represented in the parliament and government of Lebanon," RIA-Novosti reported quoted Lavrov as saying on a plane returning from an Asian security meeting in Malaysia. Hezbollah has 11 members in Lebanon's 128-seat parliament, and two Cabinet ministers.
The terrorist list, published in the official daily Rossiiskaya Gazeta, included al-Qaida and the Taliban as well as the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, a rebel group fighting for Kashmir's independence from India, and Egypt's banned Muslim Brotherhood.
The Russian Federal Security Service's top official in charge of fighting international terrorism, Yuri Sapunov, said Hamas and Hezbollah were not a major threat to Russia and were not regarded as terrorist groups worldwide. But he said Russian security agencies took account of international lists of terrorist groups when exchanging intelligence with foreign counterparts.
Sapunov told Rossiiskaya Gazeta the list of 17 "includes only those organizations which represent the greatest threat to the security of our country." Groups linked to separatist militants in Chechnya and Islamic radicals in Central Asia made the list.
Russia has come under criticism for its refusal to list Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations.
Israel is now fighting a ground and air war in Lebanon against Hezbollah guerrillas, who are firing rockets into northern Israel. Israeli forces have also attacked the Gaza Strip to target Hamas militants. Russia has criticized the scale of the Israeli offensive, while the United States has blamed Hezbollah for the violence.
President Vladimir Putin earlier this year provoked U.S. and Israeli anger by inviting leaders of Hamas to Moscow shortly after their January election victory. The meeting made no progress in softening the group's refusal to recognize Israel's right to exist or foreswear
Lavrov's reported comment about Hezbollah echoed the arguments Russian officials made for inviting Hamas leaders, when they said that they were dealing with Hamas as an entity that had just come to power in elections.
Lavrov said that Russia's support for a Hezbollah role in decision-making in the Mideast crisis was shared by European countries and U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, adding: "As for support from the Americans for this position, I have no such information," RIA-Novosti reported.
The European Union considers Hamas a terrorist organization and along with the United States slapped financial sanctions on the new Hamas-led government. But it does not list Hezbollah as a terrorist group.

La Russophobe !

Why Israel won't survive

Ali Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada, 19 January 2009

From a hill just outside the Gaza Strip, Israelis
watch the air assaults on Gaza and dance in
celebration of the attacks, 8 January 2009.

The merciless Israeli bombardment of Gaza has stopped -- for now -- but the death toll keeps rising as more bodies are pulled from carpet- bombed neighborhoods.

What Israel perpetrated in Gaza, starting at 11:30am on 27 December 2008, will remain forever engraved in history and memory. Tel al-Hawa, Hayy al-Zeitoun, Khuzaa and other sites of Israeli massacres will join a long mournful list that includes Deir Yasin, Qibya, Kufr Qasim, Sabra and Shatila, Qana, and Jenin.

Once again, Israel demonstrated that it possesses the power and the lack of moral restraint necessary to commit atrocities against a population of destitute refugees it has caged and starved.

The dehumanization and demonization of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims has escalated to the point where Israel can with full self- righteousness bomb their homes, places of worship, schools, universities, factories, fishing boats, police stations -- in short everything that sustains civilized and orderly life -- and claim it is conducting a war against terrorism.

Yet paradoxically, it is Israel as a Zionist state, not Palestine or the Palestinian people, that cannot survive this attempted genocide.

Israel's "war" was not about rockets -- they served the same role in its narrative as the non-existent weapons of mass destruction did as the pretext for the American-led invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Israel's real goals were to restore its "deterrence" fatally damaged after its 2006 defeat in Lebanon (translation: its ability to massacre and terrorize entire populations into submission) and to destroy any Palestinian resistance to total Israeli-Jewish control over historic Palestine from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

With Hamas and other resistance factions removed or fatally weakened, Israel hoped the way would be clear to sign a "peace" deal with chief Palestinian collaborator Mahmoud Abbas to manage Palestinians on Israel's behalf until they could be forced out once and for all.

The US-backed "moderate" dictatorships and absolute monarchies led by Egypt and Saudi Arabia supported the Israeli plan hoping to demonstrate to their own people that resistance -- whether against Israel or their own bankrupt regimes -- was futile.

To win, Israel had to break Palestinian resistance. It failed. On the contrary, it galvanized and unified Palestinians like never before. All factions united and fought heroically for 23 days. According to well-informed and credible sources Israel did little harm to the modest but determined military capacity of the resistance. So instead Israel did what it does best: it massacred civilians in the hope that the population would turn against those fighting the occupier.

Israel not only unified the resistance factions in Gaza; its brutality rallied all Palestinians and Arabs.

It is often claimed that Arab regimes whip up anti-Israel anger to distract their populations from their own failings. Actually, Israel, the US and subservient Arab regimes tried everything -- especially demonizing Iran and inciting sectarian tensions between Sunni and Shia Muslims -- to distract their populations from Palestine.

All this failed as millions of people across the region marched in support of Palestinian resistance, and the Arab regimes who hoped to benefit from the slaughter in Gaza have been exposed as partners in the Israeli atrocities. In popular esteem, Hamas and other Palestinian resistance factions earned their place alongside Hizballah as effective bulwarks against Israeli and Western colonialism.

If there was ever a moment when the peoples of the region would accept Israel as a Zionist state in their midst, that has passed forever.

But anyone surveying the catastrophe in Gaza -- the mass destruction, the death toll of more than 100 Palestinians for every Israeli, the thousands of sadistic injuries -- would surely conclude that Palestinians could never overcome Israel and resistance is a delusion at best.

True, in terms of ability to murder and destroy, Israel is unmatched. But Israel's problem is not, as its propaganda insists, "terrorism" to be defeated by sufficient application of high explosives. Its problem is legitimacy, or rather a profound and irreversible lack of it. Israel simply cannot bomb its way to legitimacy.

Israel was founded as a "Jewish state" through the ethnic cleansing of Palestine's non-Jewish majority Arab population. It has been maintained in existence only through Western support and constant use of violence to prevent the surviving indigenous population from exercising political rights within the country, or returning from forced exile.

Despite this, today, 50 percent of the people living under Israeli rule in historic Palestine (Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip) are Palestinians, not Jews. And their numbers are growing rapidly. Like Nationalists in Northern Ireland or non-whites in South Africa, Palestinians will never recognize the "right" of a settler-colonial society to maintain an ethnocractic state at their expense through violence, repression and racism.

For years, the goal of the so-called peace process was to normalize Israel as a "Jewish state" and gain Palestinians' blessing for their own dispossession and subjugation. When this failed, Israel tried "disengagement" in Gaza -- essentially a ruse to convince the rest of the world that the 1.5 million Palestinians caged in there should no longer be counted as part of the population. They were in Israel's definition a "hostile entity."

In his notorious May 2004 interview with The Jerusalem Post, Arnon Soffer, an architect of the 2005 disengagement explained that the approach "doesn't guarantee 'peace,' it guarantees a Jewish- Zionist state with an overwhelming majority of Jews." Soffer predicted that in the future "when 2.5 million people live in a closed-off Gaza, it's going to be a human catastrophe. Those people will become even bigger animals than they are today, with the aid of an insane fundamentalist Islam. The pressure at the border will be awful."

He was unambiguous about what Israel would have to do to maintain this status quo: "If we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill. All day, every day." Soffer hoped that eventually, Palestinians would give up and leave Gaza altogether.

Through their resistance, steadfastness and sacrifice, Palestinians in Gaza have defeated this policy and reasserted that they are an inseparable part of Palestine, its people, its history and its future.

Israel is not the first settler-colonial entity to find itself in this position. When F.W. de Klerk, South Africa's last apartheid president, came to office in 1989, his generals calculated that solely with the overwhelming military force at their disposal, they could keep the regime in power for at least a decade. The casualties, however, would have run into hundreds of thousands, and South Africa would face ever greater isolation. Confronted with this reality, de Klerk took the decision to began an orderly dismantling of apartheid.

What choice will Israel make? In the absence of any political and moral legitimacy the only arguments it has left are bullets and bombs. Left to its own devices Israel will certainly keep trying -- as it has for sixty years -- to massacre Palestinians into submission. Israel's achievement has been to make South Africa's apartheid leaders look wise, restrained and humane by comparison.

But what prevented South Africa's white supremacist government from escalating their own violence to Israeli levels of cruelty and audacity was not that they had greater scruples than the Zionist regime. It was recognition that they alone could not stand against a global anti-apartheid movement that was in solidarity with the internal resistance.

Israel's "military deterrent" has now been repeatedly discredited as a means to force Palestinians and other Arabs to accept Zionist supremacy as inevitable and permanent. Now, the other pillar of Israeli power -- Western support and complicity -- is starting to crack. We must do all we can to push it over.

Israel began its massacres with full support from its Western "friends." Then something amazing happened. Despite the official statements of support, despite the media censorship, despite the slick Israeli hasbara (propaganda) campaign, there was a massive, unprecedented public mobilization in Europe and even in North America expressing outrage and disgust.

Gaza will likely be seen as the turning point when Israeli propaganda lost its power to mystify, silence and intimidate as it has for so long. Even the Nazi Holocaust, long deployed by Zionists to silence Israel's critics, is becoming a liability; once unimaginable comparisons are now routinely heard. Jewish and Palestinian academics likened Israel's actions in Gaza to the Nazi massacre in the Warsaw Ghetto. A Vatican cardinal referred to Gaza as a "giant concentration camp." UK Member of Parliament Gerald Kaufman, once a staunch Zionist, told the House of Commons, "My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town of Staszow, [Poland]. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed." Kaufman continued, "my grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza." He denounced the Israeli military spokesperson's justifications as the words "of a Nazi."

It wasn't only such statements, but the enormous demonstrations, the nonviolent direct actions, and the unprecedented expressions of support for boycott, divestment and sanctions from major trade unions in Italy, Canada and New Zealand. An all-party group of city councillors in Birmingham, Europe's second largest municipal government, urged the UK government to follow suit. Salma Yaqoub of the RESPECT Party explained that "One of the factors that helped bring an end to the brutal apartheid regime in South Africa was international pressure for economic, sporting and cultural boycotts. It is time that Israel started to feel similar pressure from world opinion."

Israel, its true nature as failed, brutal colonial project laid bare in Gaza, is extremely vulnerable to such a campaign. Little noticed amidst the carnage in Gaza, Israel took another momentous step towards formal apartheid when the Knesset elections committee voted to ban Arab parties from participating in upcoming elections. Zionism, an ideology of racial supremacy, extremism and hate, is a dying project, in retreat and failing to find new recruits. With enough pressure, and relatively quickly, Israelis too would likely produce their own de Klerk ready to negotiate a way out. Every new massacre makes it harder, but a de-zionized, decolonized, reintegrated Palestine affording equal rights to all who live in it, regardless of religion or ethnicity, and return for refugees is not a utopian dream.

It is within reach, in our lifetimes. But it is far from inevitable. We can be sure that Western and Arab governments will continue to support Israeli apartheid and Palestinian collaboration under the guise of the "peace process" unless decisively challenged. Israeli massacres will continue and escalate until the nightmare of an Israeli- style "peace" -- apartheid and further ethnic cleansing -- is fulfilled.

The mobilizations of the past three weeks showed that a different world is possible and within our grasp if we support the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. Although they will never get to see it, that world would be a fitting memorial for all of Israel's victims.

ISRAEL REPEATS HOLOCAUST - Izrael megismétli a holokausztot



2009. január 18., vasárnap

Bush Countdown Clock



Baranyai András: Indul a "Kész átverés show"!

Ugyanis senkinek ne legyenek illúziói. Az izraeli egyoldalú tűzszünet azért született, hogy a Hamasz lépéskényszerbe kerüljön: ha támadnak, ők a hunyók, a béke ellenségei, az agresszorok, stb, stb. Ha nem támadnak, akkor elismerik, hogy ők vesztették el a háborút, hiszen impotensek lettek: a cionista támadás elérte célját - a Hamasz meggyengült!
Azonban azt hajlamos mindenki elfelejteni, hogy a határátkelők zárva maradtak, a hadsereg ott maradt, ahol a harcok befejeződtek...tiszta Horvátország 1991 végén: az ENSZ erőket nem a közigazgatási határra, hanem az elfoglalt területek határára kell telepíteni, így legitimálva a területszerző akciót. De ezzel Izrael elismeri, hogy a támadása nem a Hamasz ellen, hanem a Gázai-koncentrációs tábor ellen irányult.
Katonai szempontból kétségtelen, hogy Izrael vesztett, de a palesztinok sem nyertek. Azonban arányaiban hatalmas kudarc a cionista rezsim számára a háború: nem egy-két nap lett a hadjárat, nem tudták megsemmisíteni a Hamaszt és logisztikai hátterüket, nem tudták felszámolni az alagutakat, nem vették be Gáza városát!...és nem látott happy end-et a domboldalon üldögélő vérszomjas banda!
Azt viszont sikerült elérni, hogy Izrael szavában már senki nem bízik (más dolog, hogy a kereskedelem és a pénz nagy úr), az arab államok kezdenek összefogni, a világ kiállt a támadás ellen. Az USA természetesen nem, de őket sem veszi már senki komolyan, ha az igazságost akarják játszani. Bush pedig hál' Istennek nem játszik többé...

Ismerd meg a valódi gyilkosokat!

A Hamasz egy hetet adott Izraelnek, hogy kivonuljon, de ők már replikáztak: "a Hamasz nem partner". Nos ez a "nem partner" okozott álmatlan éjszakákat Livni kápókisasszonynak és fasiszta - én szerintem, ide inkább a náci illik!, R.F.Eduardo megjegyzése - bandájának, hogy aztán izguljanak, a választópolgárok hogy döntenek majd februárban!
Mindenesetre jól megtanulták a római jelmondatot: Panem et circenses! Mert cirkuszt aztán azt műveltek, de kenyeret nem adtak soha!

Eduardo Rózsa Flores: 3 poems for Palestine (Hungarian and English version)

Rózsa Flores Eduardo: Három vers Palesztináért (magyar és angol nyelvű verzió)

A világvége
-vagy amit annak hívnak-
itt, orrunk előtt zajlik.
Dőljenek csak hatra kényelmes foteljaikon:
ez az utolsó jelenet.
Benne a kis szentek is folynak el épp, szépen lassan,
megdöglött az utolsó galamb is,
minden, végérvényesen minden elfolyik
ámde szépen lassan...
és ha majd mi sem leszünk itten,
majd akkor, ha mindenki elment:
marad csak a tenger moraja, ha éhes,
marad csak a tenger csendje, ha álmos
feloldódik benne a sok ver,
a felesleges és a
Szent Vér,
marad csak
a tenger
és marad
az ablak előtt.


The end of the world
- or whatever they call it –
Is happening here under our noses
Just lean back in your comfortable
The last act is running now.

The little saints in it are flowing

Past just now, slowly,
The final dove is dead, too,

All, all flows past,

But of course slowly…

And if we aren't going to be
Here, when everybody's gone,
Only the sea's rustling sound will remain,

Only the sea's silence will remain.

The sacred blood
The sea
The sea
At the window.


Látom már
gyönyörű de
szépen kiterítve

/Nagy itt a magány.
A csend szinte teljes,
minden zugot betölt
keseredés árnyék./

Kint az apokalipszis elszabadult
négy lovasa szűz-
harmat tiszta kisleányokon,
az almaik tapossák.

Sikoly - hosszan és velőtrázóan,
repül be az ablakon át

még van élet kint
még folyik a harc

angyali szarnyakat kiérdemelt

mindent átfogó


I can see already my
Wonderful but
Nicely stretched out.

/Loneliness is big here.
Silence, total
All the little spots are filled
Bitterness and shadows./

Outside, the unbridled four horsemen

of the Apocalypse
Treading on virginal pure dreams of
little girls

Screams – long and mind-shattering –
Stream in through the window

There's life out there, still

The fight goes on

I am receding now, with
Deserved angelic wings earned,
in loneliness.

The Only One's all encompassing

Embrace awaits me.

/... /

Szegények a költök
kik most írni nem tudnak

mert hősi harcos dalt
a palesztin érdemel

és az áldozatért szóló
parnasszusi fohászt
palesztin gyermeket,
asszonyt illeti meg.

Szegények azok a költök
kik most írni nem tudnak

és szegények mi
akik vérért vérrel
könnyért könnyel

Majd csak megpihen
a halál angyala.


Those poets are poor
Who can't write now

Because the Palestinian deserves
Heroic fighting songs

The prayer for the sacrifice
To Parnassus belongs
To the children and women
Of Palestine

Those poets are poor
Who can't write now

And so are we who
For blood with blood
For tear with tears

The angel of death
will rest one day.

Pro-Israel Rally Attended by Big-Time NY Dems Descends into Calls for 'Wiping Out' Palestinians

By Max Blumenthal, AlterNet.

Watch Max Blumenthal's exlusive video of the rally at the bottom of this quote.

On January 11, an estimated 10,000 people rallied in front of the Israeli consulate in midtown New York in support of Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip. The rally, which was organized by UJA-Federation of New York and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York in cooperation with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, featured speeches by New York’s most senior lawmakers. While the crowd was riled to righteous anger by speeches about Hamas evildoers, the event was a festive affair that began and ended with singing and joyous dancing.

Sen. Chuck Schumer highlighted Israel’s supposed humanitarian methods of warfare by pointing to its text messaging of certain Gaza Strip residents urging them to vacate their homes before Israeli forces bombed them. “What other country would do that?” Schumer shouted from the podium. Gov. David Paterson appeared on stage wearing one of the red hats distributed to demonstrators as symbols of the red alerts some residents of Israel endure when Palestinian groups fire rockets their way. Paterson cited the many Qasam rockets that have fallen on Israel as a justification for the country’s operations in Gaza, a military assault that has resulted in over 800 casualties and thousands of injuries.

Then Paterson highlighted the anti-Semitism that has followed in the wake of Israel’s attack on Gaza, highlighting the beating of a teen-age girl in France. “This kind of anger and hatred spreads like a disease,” Paterson said, “and one thing I've always pointed out is there's no place for hate in the Empire State.”

But hatred was plentiful at the rally Paterson addressed. Right in front of the stage, a man held a banner reading, “Islam Is A Death Cult.” Rally attendees described the people of Gaza to me as a “cancer,” called for Israel to “wipe them all out,” insisting, “They are forcing us to kill their children in order to defend our own children.” A young woman told me, “Those who die are suffering God’s wrath.” “They are not distinguishing between civilians and military, so why should we?” said a member of the group of messianic Orthodox Jewish Chabad-Lubavitch group that flocked to the rally.

No one I spoke to could seem to find any circumstance in which they would begin to question Israel’s war. No number of civilian deaths, no displays of extreme suffering -- nothing could deter their enthusiasm for attacking one of the most vulnerable populations in the world with the world’s most advanced weaponry. There are no limits, no matter what Israel does, no matter how it does it.

The rally made me think of a passage in “The Holocaust Is Over, We Must Rise From Its Ashes,” a powerful new book by former Israeli Knesset speaker and Jewish National Fund chairman Avraham Burg:

“If you are a bad person, a whining enemy or a strong-arm occupier, you are not my brother, even if you are circumcised, observe the Sabbath, and do mitzvahs. If your scarf covers every hair on your head for modest, you give alms and do charity, but what is under your scarf is dedicated to the sanctity of Jewish land, taking precedence over the sanctity of human life, whosever life that is, then your are not my sister. You might be my enemy. A good Arab or a righteous gentile will be a brother or sister to me. A wicked man, even of Jewish descent, is my adversary, and I would stand on the other side of the barricade and fight him to the end.”
