I see that the Zionist regime has once again renewed its blood lust when it massacred over 200 Palestinians in the Gaza strip.
This has been the single biggest Palestinian loss of life since 1967.
Zionist Aggression Minister Ehud Barak said "it won't be easy and it won't be short. There is a time for calm and a time for fighting, and now the time has come to fight,"
It would appear that the Zionists will not be happy until every man, woman and child of the Palestinian Nation are wiped out.
Where have I heard of that kind of hate before...I wonder?
Mustafa Barghouthi, the former Palestinian information minister, said
"This is not an attack on the Hamas. It is an attack on the whole population and the free will of the people of Gaza."
That for me is self evident with this attack.
I have always been a supporter of Fatah as they seek a secular and socialist Palestine however the stench of corruption has surrounded them and the Palestinian people made their choice in the form of Hamas in Gaza.
Their choice must be respected!
My support for the Palestinian people in unconditional, the same can't be said for its political parties and Fatah in particular.
I see that the West continues to appease the Zionist aggressor
The Brit PM had this to say, "I am deeply concerned by continuing missile strikes from Gaza on Israel and by Israel's response today,"
So his primary concern is not the murder of 200 Palestinian Citizens? What a surprise!
The USA, Israel's biggest benefactor, was her usual benign self when US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice issued this despicable statement
"The United States strongly condemns the repeated rocket and mortar attacks against Israel and holds Hamas responsible for breaking the ceasefire and for the renewal of violence in Gaza,"
It was Israel that broke the terms of the Egyptian negotiated truce by refusing to open the border crossings and end their disgusting blockade against the people of the Gaza.
The most honest response I have heard thus far came from a Palestinian Housewife in the Jabalya refugee camp.
“Since six months ago, we have had almost no supplies through the crossings, no food, no medicine, no gas, no water. What truce are you talking about? I support the truce, but a truce that brings us basic rights as Palestinians, not a truce that is only good for Israelis ... this served only one side, Israel.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas would need to do a lot more than simply condemn the "aggression" in Gaza.
The PLO and other Palestinian Resistance organisations should avenge this attack with utmost severity.
I would echo the sentiments of my Bloglaigh Na hÉireann Comrade Julius Geezer when he said
"I'm of the opinion that I won't see a resolution to this conflict in my lifetime. If there is a Palestinian state based on the Camp David/Taba discussions it will quickly fail because it will be based on injustice, illegality, and the legitimization of land-grabbing criminality. The chances of a bi-national state emerging, based on equality for all, are not good to say the least.
In the short term the hapless Abu Mazen should show a grain of integrity and cut off all contact with Israel, and it is to be hoped that all Palestinian resistance groups will retaliate against this murderous aggression. There is a time for peace, but it's not when a clique of cowardly murdering thugs are slaughtering your people."
Peace can not be achieved while the jackboot of Zionist aggression is firm on the throat of the Palestinian people.
The Arab Nations must show common cause with the people of Gaza and wider Palestine and do all in their power to ensure that the days of Zionist expansion and aggression are a thing of the past.
Victory to the Palestinian people! Tiocfaidh Siad Lá!
UPDATE. The Zionists launch a second day of attacks and the death toll in Gaza is now up to at least 280.
It would seem that the once mighty Fatah party is now little more than a puppet when you consider the wimpering reaction of Mahmoud Abbas. Shame on him! I hope the electorate in the West Bank give him the answer that he deserves at the first available opportunity.
Judas is alive and well and living in Ramallah!
