The future of Gaza is still uncertain. Even when you reach agreement with Israel (or with Egypt) there is no guarantee that it will be honored, as happened with the agreements after the previous (2012) war and with the 2011 prisoners’ exchange. Yet Gaza is fighting for liberty…

Thirty days after the start of Operation Protective Edge on June 8, a three-day cease-fire was announced, and renewed again on Aug. 11. However, the end of the war will reveal a reality that may be harsher than the war itself. The Gaza Strip, a small densely populated area, is perhaps the only place in the world that suffered three devastating wars requiring extensive reconstruction three times in seven years.
The Gaza resistance movement Hamas has announced that any attempts to disarm Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza are "worthless," urging other nations to ban the Israeli regime.
Wrh.com Webmaster's Commentary:
Just think how much US taxpayer money we will save by not paying for all those weapons!
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said the seven-week conflict in Gaza ended in "victory".
The Palestinian Islamist Hamas movement was "hit hard and got none of its demands," Mr Netanyahu said.
Senior Likud MK Ofer Akunis calls on PM Netanyahu to fire Tourism Minister Landau for saying Israel 'lost' Gaza Operation.
Israel did lose the Gaza operation, and firing ministers and Netanyahu's proclamations cannot change that. For Israel to be seen as victorious, HAMAS (if not all the Gazans) had to be removed. For HAMAS (and the Gazans) to be seen as victorious, they merely had to endure, which is what they did. Along the way, Israel destroyed their reputation as permanent victim and stands revealed to the world as the aggressor, striking from behind the flimsiest of lies and justifications.
I just wonder how genuine Peled really is?? He says the right words but are they from the heart, are they sincere and honest?
It is extremely important to realize: Hamas is Not the problem.
Gaza is Not the problem.
The Rockets are Not the problem.
Zionism & Israel are the problem.
Zionism is a racist, colonial, idea.
That’s why “Zionism has to go” is a true statement.
This is what we need to focus on.
Hamas is an resistance organization. It was established as a result of a brutal Oppression and Occupation. This is something we have to start talking about without being afraid, he said.?
We have to understand, if anybody supports the state of Israel, you support the package, with all its baggage, he notes:
You support the racist laws,
You support the killing of innocent children because they are non-jews,
You support a State that has thousands of political prisoners, mass incarceration of people without charges.
The struggle today for the people of conscience is to End Zionism to Free Palestine and End the Occupation.
Canadian member of parliament Sana Hassainia reiterated her condemnation of the Israeli massacres in Gaza, saying that condoning Israel's actions against Palestinian civilians is "unfair."
In an interview with Anadolu Agency on Friday, Hassainia, who recently resigned from her New Democratic Party over its stance on Gaza, criticised the censorship of any views sympathetic to the Palestinians in Canada and western countries.

Ron Paul: "Too Much Killing, Palestinians Have Been Treated Unfairly, & Something Should Be Done About That"
Congressman Ron Paul recently participated in a Q&A with supporters and was asked if he considered the killing of Palestinians in Gaza, funded by the U.S. government, to be "genocide."

Why Moral Perversity of U.S. Position in Gaza is Stunning
By Roger Waters
August 27, 2014 "ICH" - "Salon" - The carnage in Gaza continues after the latest collapse of cease-fire talks and over four weeks of asymmetrical bombardment by Israel. With the death of more than 2,000 Palestinians, and the displacement of hundreds of thousands more, the complicity of the American government has been exposed to the world as never before. Yet the mantra repeated ad nauseam by the U.S. government and media alike remains the same: Israel has a right to defend itself.
The moral perversity of the U.S. position is stunning. How can the U.S. government ask Israel to be more careful about civilian lives while simultaneously arming and then rearming the IDF so it can more effectively inflict such devastation on an imprisoned and occupied people?
The U.S. could act to stop the senseless slaughter but it won’t. Instead, it’s cheerleading. Members of Congress are mindlessly parroting Israeli talking points without a thought given to the Palestinian perspective or to preserving human life. Brimming with righteousness, they argue for turning Israel loose – Sen. Rand Paul in particular – and invoke Israel’s right to self-defense, despite the fact that, as the occupying power, Israel has an obligation to protect the Palestinians it rules, not massacre them.
Do congressional leaders ever stop to wonder what they would do if they were born Palestinian, had their homes and private property stolen from them, and were forced to live without freedom under an illegal Israeli occupation for 47 years? Do they know what it means to be on the receiving end of Israel’s barbaric “mow the lawn” euphemism? Scarcely a word is said about the rights of Palestinians who are being pummeled from the sky and shot dead in their neighborhoods by the region’s most powerful military. What, I wonder, would Americans do if it were their neighborhoods being invaded and if they were the ones living under siege? I think it’s safe to say Americans wouldn’t stand for it.
Despite these realities, it’s far more advantageous in Washington to come down like a ton of bricks on the Palestinians and maintain that they are the cause of their own suffering. No politician’s career has ever been hurt by blaming Palestinians or by applauding Israel’s illegal occupation, colonization and war crimes.
Pressure on American politicians to conform to the party line is abetted by skewed media coverage. For instance, CNN, while purporting to be a news channel, relentlessly churns out Israeli propaganda.
The trailer has been released for Open Bethlehem, a new film by Palestinian documentary-maker Leila Sansour which calls for an international response to the plight of her hometown.
After every Israeli aggression upon Gaza, Israel agrees to a Truce/Ceasefire which then is always followed by announcements of even more Settlements, more land grabs, more expansion, in order to placate their murderous IOF ‘Civilian’ population. And the killing and abduction of Palestinians in the West Bank will also continue unabaited.
Israel's defense establishment will recommend to politicians that they show generosity in indirect negotiations with Hamas when discussing the conditions for a permanent cease-fire, in order to forestall renewed hostilities at the end of September. A senior military source has told Haaretz that it is in Israel’s interest to avoid intense social and economic pressure on Gaza.
Wrh.comWebmaster's Commentary: Netanyahu will never agree to this, as he is trying to claim that Israel "won" the latest war with Gaza, and any concessions at all will undermine his hallucinations in that regard!
Israeli authorities on Sunday announced the confiscation of around 4,000 dunums (1,000 acres) of private Palestinian land south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.
Palestinian owners of the land were given 45 days to submit formal objections to the announcement in Israeli courts, otherwise all confiscated lands would automatically become Israeli government property.
Mayor of the nearby Palestinian town of Surif Muhammad Ghuneimat told Ma'an that Israeli forces posted signs in private olive tree orchards in the area warning that they have been confiscated by the Israeli government.
Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel announced plans on Sunday to expropriate 400 hectares (988 acres) of Palestinian land in the Bethlehem area in the south of the occupied West Bank, the military said.
In an article published in the September 6th edition of The Palestine Chronicle (“Imagining Palestinians as Equal”) I began with this quote from novelist Aldous Huxley: “The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.” It is the key to separating out what is blatant propaganda and what is fair and honest communication.
The purpose of Israel’s political firewall is blocking out and discrediting the testimony of the people it abuses on a daily basis and their supporters, through using high level elites.
Thirteen arrested as protesters tell Senators Menendez and Booker: ‘No more blank check for Israel’s crimes’
On Tuesday August 26, 2014, more than 50 demonstrators protested outside the Newark, New Jersey, offices of U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker demanding that the legislators stop providing a blank check for Israel’s crimes. Thirteen demonstrators were arrested inside the building as they read out the names of some of the nearly 500 Palestinian children killed in Gaza.
It’s one thing for an Israeli soldier to post his venom on FaceBook or Instagram …. BUT when a Palestinian speaks his piece, that’s a different story …
An Israeli court in Petah Tikva extended the detention of Suhaib Zahida, 31, until Sept. 4, after he was arrested on Thursday for creating a page on Facebook called “the Intifada of Hebron” in addition to leading a campaign for the boycott of Israeli products.

The basis for the country of Israel
The Balfour Declaration (it its entirety)
November 2nd, 1917
Dear Lord Rothschild,
I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.
"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.
Arthur James Balfour

This latest unequal barbaric one sided war against the Gazan Palestinians can never be forgiven or erased from the memory of the Palestinian people and will remain a constant reminder of just who their real Enemy is and remains so, despite all the ceasefires and endless Truces brokered by a Biased third party.
Naturally we are elated for the survivors who I am certain want peace and quiet, a semblance of normalcy in their tortured lives. We must never forget the terrible price paid with the deaths of all our martyrs, our Children- babies, Toddlers, little Ones, teenagers, our women, young and old, our elderly, male and female as well as our men, our brave Fighters defending their ancestral homeland. May they all be blessed and received with Compassion and Mercy by Almighty God, and their souls rest in eternal peace.
For their loved ones left behind, our prayers go out to each and every one of them as practically every family in Gaza has lost loved ones/friends. May God give them strength, resilience, wisdom and further courage
To date and still counting the dead
Nearly 2200 Gazan Palestinians dead, of which over 550 are children, over 400 women, over 379 elderly
Over 12,000 injured, maimed
over 400,000 displaced, turning Refugees into further Refugees
91 Entire Families have been barbarically wiped out by Israel's Holocaust of Gaza.
Entire Villages, Residential Areas Wiped out, flattened,
Over 7000 Homes destroyed
Even livestock/animals killed
Refugee camps deliberately attacked, Schools destroyed-
Over 60 mosques targeted, Hospitals, Medical Clinics, Rehab Centres, Courthouses, Fire Stations, Farmland, Sewage treatment plants, Water treatment Plants, Power Plants
134 Factories adding a further 30,000 to the unemployed
Numerous Life saving Tunnels destroyed by Israel and its Zionist Helper, Egypt.
This was ISRAEL's HOLOCAUST of GAZA, calculated, deliberate with use of state of the Art Weapons of Mass Destruction which Nuclear Israel is abundantly supplied with courtesy of its own Military and those of its Zionist inbred Allies, the USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Japan.
Israel used its Army, Navy and Air force- all heavily equipped and all contributed to the Holocaust of Gaza- inflicting as the Greek word defines itself, massive death and destruction and great loss of life, especially through fire- in this case Israel's Military Firepower- F16s, F22, Drones, Dime Bombs, Phosphorous Bombs, Organ shredding Flechettes, Caterpillar Tanks. and other unknown newly used Chemical and Biological Weaponry created by warmongering Jewish Scientists.
Well we all know where the elusive WMDS that Iraq never had, were all along- in Israel itself [Iraq being another war for Eretz Israel and was the war against the Syrian Nation, also Holocausted by Zionist Mercenary Killers posing as Phoney Muslims.
3 Massive Wars for Eretz Israel

A Holocaust that Arabs and Muslims should NEVER ever forget or forgive
I leave you with my poem
We the people of Palestine are the bricks, stone and mortar of our country.
We are its Muslims, its Christians, its Al Aqsa and Church of Nativity.
We are its towns, villages, Farmland, Streets, history and ancient City
We are its Earth, its moon, and its star, its Mountain
We are its happiness, its sorrow, its loss and its pain
We are its fruits, Orange Groves, Olive Trees, Cacti and Cedar trees
We are its hills, winding roads, rivers, sea and gentle breezes
We are its faith its culture and its language, our blessings from our Creator
We are its heartbeat, its soul, memories, dreams and its aspirations our mentor
Our struggle lives on with our Strength, Hope, resilience and resistance
Our determination will survive, we will never die as God Himself guarantees our existence
By the grace of God, we will live to see another day
Our Destiny was to be its past, its present and it will be its Future one Day!!
We will never forgive the Killers of our People and we will never forget our dead, our brave innocent Martyrs or the true grit of our Resistance Fighters and our dedicated Medical Staff.
God Bless you all.
For any oppressed nation, it is a God given right to resist in order to exist.
“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight back), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid; (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right, (for no cause) except that they say, our Lord is God”. (Quran- Surah 22:39-40)
