The Rockets of Hunger and Israeli Propaganda

German

I received a message from the photojournalist and peace activist Sameh Habeeb from Gaza while I was looking at the news in the Austrian TV, which pierced my ears with talk about the rockets which Hamas supposedly shoots at the sam_0305“innocent Israeli occupation” which has jailed one and half million in Gaza since before Al-Aqsa Intifada broke out.

The rockets shown on Austrian TV looked to me like the fancy Bengala Rockets which are shot here while celebrating new year, and the clips shown on TV raise many questions:
-    The picture published at the ORF website is credited to “MOHAMED SABER/EPA”.

-    The rockets depicted in that picture (and on the video) look more like the fancy bengalas which can be bought in many shops all over the world before festivities than any known weapon.
gaza_rocket_1-    These so-called “rockets” appear to not have place for fuel or an engine, but they are supposed to fly 10-15Km ? How do they accomplish this miracle?
-    How did ORF and other western media come into possession of this video which supposedly shows “Hamas fighters” shooting rockets from between fruit trees?
–    If the firing of these rockets from Gaza can be doubted, from where else could they have been fired? From within Israeli territory perhaps? Could it be that the firing of these rockets is a propaganda campaign implemented by the IDF in order to “justify” a long-planned massacre against the people of Gaza?
–    Could it be that the IDF is using the inhabitants of Sderot, Asqelon and other places around Gaza in order to construct a justification for genocide against a people who are already half hungered to death?
–    Why did nobody ask these questions before showing the clip at several European TV stations?

- Why is the vegetation in this picture green while it is winter, and normally in winter vegetation is not green in Gaza?

- Does Hamas allow all journalists to report about their activities? Hamas is known to have arrested many journalists because of their reporting.

ADDITION: We received a statement from EPA, the agency mentioned in the credit of the picture above, saying that picture indeed comes from their correspondent.

Even in the unlikely case that these rockets are “real”, they would be an sam_0098understandable  yet lamentable reaction to years of illegal siege and murderous mayhem perpetrated by the Israeli regime. In this case they would be “rockets of hunger”, wholly justified under international law, which allows an invaded people to defend itself with anything at their disposal.

The Israeli occupational regime is preparing to slaughter the besieged people of Gaza, and it is known that they are currently running a strong propaganda campaign around the world, controlling the international public opinion and turning their own crimes against humanity into “reactions” of the Gaza rockets.

sechshaheed2501208The less than objective international media has adopted the Israeli propaganda wholesale, and continues repeating their falsified stories as a preparation for destroying Gaza over the heads of one and a half million mostly defenseless people, of whom about half are children.

Non of the European media has shown an objective picture about the real situation in Gaza, which is in fact and effect a concentration camp. Even during the previous truce between Israel and Gaza, the criminal state of Israel continued its blockade to hunger out and destroy to the Palestinians in Gaza.

I would ask the well-paid international dispensers of propaganda and the world governments some simple questions:
If somebody jails you in a ghetto for over six years, or even six days, denying you the most basic of human rights, continues blockading the ghetto, killing the sick people, occupying the sky, shelling, and killing people for no discernible reason, will you stay a peaceful people for even a second?
Is there any peace under the continued hunger and blockade?

This is the story of Gaza and of these useless rockets which you are using to justify the Israeli genocide, murdering, and jailing and starving people.

The message from the hungry people of Gaza, a voice lost under western propaganda and which more people should hear, follows. And here are more photos of the hungry Palestinians of Gaza.

Sameh Habeeb writes:

My Misery in Gaza pushed me to report on the Hunger of my people. I stopped by al shanty bakery mid of Gaza City. It is one of the biggest bakeries across Gaza which provides tens of thousands with bread. Hundreds of people crowded outside the bakery in a very long long row waiting for bag of bread. Children, women and men were awaiting the chance to have the bread which is totally  running out in Gaza.

Abed Mas’od, 24, is a labour working in Al shanty bakery. I spoke to him whilst he was very busy preparing bread for thousands. I managed to get some information out of him.

Before the deadly crisis of bread which started 2 days ago; this bakery was preparing 30 bags of flour. But with today it makes around 100 each bag weights 60 Kilograms.  Abed refers to this rise of bread-making quantity to the unrecorded request of population for bread which came after Israel ban flour into Gaza and closed borders.

“Our bakery is out of bread since days and what we have is only for another 24 hours. In fact, we have stopped our work yesterday as we ran out of flour. Now, we use grain (fodder) used for animals which will finish in hours.” Bakery labor said.

Amongst the crowd a woman’s voice arose  above all people in the row. She started to scream and appealed for God requesting a salvation and easing for life conditions. I came closer to the woman, then introduced myself and then started to ask her some questions.  The woman, Om Ali Shoman,45, with a pale bleak face draws the suffering of entire populations.

She said, “This is our destiny. It’s a conspiracy machinated against us. What’s the fault of my children at home to stay with no bread. Did they fire rockets? Did they kill Israelis? Are they holding guns?

The number of Gaza  bakeries is 47 but now the working ones are 14 only.
Normally, Gaza needs 450 tons of flour; 100 goes for bakeries and 300 for house use. Part of the house share flour is being provided by UNRWA which halted its work lately. The remaining flour and wheat quantities would be covering the needs of people except for few days.

    I feel for the Palestinian people. Israel will never leave in peace in territories they stole and occupy. They must hand back the stolen land and give up their aggressive behaviour. It is a shame the main news providers never mention how some Israelis and Palestinians are working together to try to survive the madness of a few power thirsty insane individuals. The world is guilty of doing nothing for the Palestinians, nothing for the people of Zimbabwe and nothing for the people of Burma, Tibet and North Korea and more. May all these people find peace in they lives just like we enjoy in the so called developed countries! By the way, that is greed and ignorance we developed. No wisdom, no tolerance. On behalf of the developing world, I say sorry to this people we are failing by letting tyrants run countries and depraving innocents from their basic rights of being. Sorry.

  • My prayers go out to the people of Gaza. Right does make might and might does not make right. That’s the sad lessen that the world’s greatest superpower still can’t wrap its head around and suffers because of. Posterity will be kind to the Palistinian people, and the truth will be the undoing of Israel. Nazi is as Nazi does it the sad lessen that country can’t seem to get it’s head around. This is all going to change.

    these israelites will burn in hell for eternity in the afterlife with no return usa the rotten scum is supporting these terrorist zionists we should abondon all their products support iran to wipe out israel of the world map.it’s ridicilous nations all over the world thinks america’s the world superpower its the jews who controll them the presidnt is just a puppet nothing more than an arsekisser the devils whore him and his rotten father in 2012 they will feel the wrath of god

    Dear Mr. Editor –

    Merry Christmas to you and all at TORSTAR

    Here we are, once again, at the time of year when we celebrate, or at least acknowledge the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, the “Prince of Peace”. We are continually reminded of ‘peace’, and we wish others to have ‘peace’. Many voices call for “Peace, peace”, when there is no peace. Peace is very elusive, for in its place there seems to be nothing but violence and corruption, which calls to mind statements in that Book of History, the Bible; statements such as:

    “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually… The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.”

    Such is the record of the condition of man upon the earth, in the days of Noah, just before ‘The Flood’, in which God destroyed all but Noah and his family.

    It is also written that the same conditions will exist on earth, just before the Lord comes again. “As it was in the days of Noah ..” “as it was in the days of Lot ..” It IS, now, “as it was in the days of Noah”. It IS, now, “as it was in the days of Lot”. Or so it seems to me.

    God – banished from government, schools, science, history. But – Man seeks peace – without God. It is also written: “There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”

    Surely there is a lesson for us – for all of us – in this.

    Respectfully

    The Israelis know that because this is the internet era they can’t do a genocide and be the sole custodians of its history like they largely were 60 yrs ago.

    Jenin in 02 and Lebanon in 06 showed the world very early on and graphically what Israel is and what Israel must also have been during those decades before the internet.

    If Israel does genocide the Gaza Palestinians under rubble and tank treads, then the Germans might begin to press for Holocaust Mk II reparations to be paid by the State of Israel to the people of Palestine.

    The zionist jews will always find reasons to occupy more land
    The Palestinans have every right to get their lands back

  • Peter Morris

    A common tactic by the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) is to create a bogus Palestinian rocket attack near a school or kindergarten when there is a need for a pretence.
    I am waiting for something similar to occur very shortly.
    These “attacks” normally occur in the school carpark and amazingly with great “fortune” when there are no kids around.

  • Gazan

    Everyone in the world who works for truth and justice, or who suffers unjustly, is now a Gazan, as all those who opposed Nazi tyranny sixty years ago in Europe were inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto. Gaza is by far the largest concentration camp the world has ever seen, and the Nazis who oppress and kill them there were sixty years ago the oppressed, murdered Jews of Warsaw. The Jews of Israel have become the new Nazis! By their oppression of the Gazans, and all other Palestinians in Israel, the Israelis are using up the good will their ancestors gained in the world because of the Holocaust. The actions of the Israelis are bringing the condemnation of the world down, unjustly, upon all Jews and creating the conditions necessary for a new Jewish Holocaust. They are themselves bringing about what they have long sought to avoid, and most fear.

    In the picture of the rocket, notice also that a wide angle lens has been used to exaggerate the size of the device. These things are less powerful than a July 4th firework.

    I have seen a picture of a house in Sederot that took a direct hit from such a rocket, all it did was blow some rendering off a wall, the occupants would have been perfectly safe.

    Today the press are reporting that one of these devices misfired and hit a house in Gaza, totally destroying the building and killing two small girls. That makes no sense whatsoever when these devices are not capable of even knocking down a modest wall.

  • Kay

    Have Hamas stop irritating Israel for the sake of his own people. If Hamas indeed had fired the rockets, they are responsible for the death of the Palestinian people. What was their real objective to ignite Israeli military reactions that should have been well predicted if it had been Hamas to fire the rockets?

    Of course, the same words go to the Israelis: Have the IDF stop for the sake of Israelis. No one protects its own people in the first place (including Fatah).

    Resistance? Or rebellion against Yahweh/Shaddai who has commanded: Thou shalt not kill? Killing one or 200 should not make any difference. Why do you allow your leaders to continue bloodshed? If you cannot correct your own, how can you correct your enemy’s?

    Maybe Israel choose this particular time during credit crunched Christmas to get away with it.
    While the news are dominated by new waves of unemployed due to more stores going bankrupt and the celebration of the world’s latest saviour Obama only very little space was given to Gaza.

    Ultimately Israel will expand her borders in accordance with the old testament in order to meet the requirements for their respective Mesiah to come – one way or another.
