A clarification to Khaled Mashal's rejection of ceasefire

Khaled Mashal, the underassassinated Hamas mouthpiece that resides in a plushy residence in Qatar, continues to play with lives of his brethren. Which is not unexpected.

There remains one unclear point in his rhetoric:

"No one will break the resistance with Allah's help. Under the table they talk about disarming the resistance of its weapons. No one can disarm the resistance with Allah's help."
I am not at all sure that the IDF general staff (or government for that matter) appealed or intends to appeal at any point in time for Allah's help. Just wondering.

Oh, and one other point:
“Our victims are civilians and theirs are soldiers,” he charged. “We are the victims, despite our steadfastness.”
Sure, sure.


The Doctrine of Proportionality... oh, and unsportsmanlike behavior


This article, The Doctrine of Proportionality, while not bringing any essentially new information, places the dots nicely over some undotted letters. It bears repeating:
Proportionality in international law is not about equality of death or civilian suffering, or even about [equality of] firepower. Proportionality weighs the necessity of a military action against suffering that the action might cause to enemy civilians in the vicinity.

"Under international humanitarian law and the Rome Statute, the death of civilians during an armed conflict, no matter how grave and regrettable does not constitute a war crime.... even when it is known that some civilian deaths or injuries will occur. A crime occurs if there is an intentional attack directed against civilians (principle of distinction) or an attack is launched on a military objective in the knowledge that the incidental civilian injuries would be clearly excessive in relation to the anticipated military advantage (principle of proportionality)." — Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Chief Prosecutor, International Criminal Court.

"The greater the military advantage anticipated, the larger the amount of collateral damage -- often civilian casualties -- which will be "justified" and "necessary." — Dr. Françoise Hampton, University of Essex, UK.
Not being a lawyer, I dare say that even I could figure out the quoted text. Moreover, I believe that even an idiot could.

Speaking about idiots, the article mentioned a special case, that of one Anshel Pfeffer of Haaretz, already referred to on these here pages. The mention sent me scrambling for his article The Gazan in a bunker trying to kill me. Indeed, as it happens, Mr Pfeffer has some original things to say about the Iron Dome:
There is something so unsportsmanlike about the Iron Dome missile shield. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a technological marvel.
Yes, marvel, but and unsportsmanlike one, and here is why:
Just imagine, at the World Cup final in Estadio Maracana on Sunday, if Germany, with its superior economy and industry, were to replace Manuel Neuer with a bionic goalkeeper: infrared sensors for eyes and a supercomputer for a brain, capable of calculating where each Argentine ball will come from, the exact position to stand in and amount of force needed to block it. I doubt even the corrupt grandees of FIFA would allow Germany’s uber-goalie to take the field.
And the ending of the passage is especially poignant:
But while Israel remains crap at soccer and can only dream of ever reaching the World Cup, on the modern battlefield it is a bionic Germany.
Yes, you might say, it was a tongue-in-cheek text - somewhat. But, with all due respect, and I don't have any respect remaining for Haaretz, the "Paper for Thinking People", this stinks.

So, if I happen to meet dear Anshel,who is much younger and stronger than I am, I am going to tell him about all my maladies and infirmities, to let him understand the real balance of power between us. And then I am gonna lay into him...

See how sportsmanlike he behaves in such a situation.

More certainty, please, Hon David Ward, MP!

I believe that a high flying politician should be assertive - above all. Unlike in this hesitant uttering:


Especially on Twitter that enforces assertiveness by the 140 limitation. Here is an example of how it should be done, gratis, too:

If I had me a spare rocket, I would definitely stick it up MP David Ward's arse and light the fuse.

See what I mean?

P.S. There wasn't room enough for "Hon", apologies extended to all my British friends.

Now about these harmless rockets

So far the best response to the foreign airlines quitting Ben Gurion airport:

I really don't understand the international community... Why not let your airplanes fly to Israel? You have been telling us all this time the rockets that Hamas fire are harmless and not to get so worked up... Oh... They're firing them at you now so they are dangerous... Oh, oh I see.

About these Gaza tunnels and other humanitarian and financial enterprises by Hamas


While IDF is rooting out the Hamas tunnels, it might be worth your time to check some tunnel - related facts. First of all, watch this Al Jaz clip:


Now that you know where the building materials Gaza is pining for really go, think about the other angle of the relentless hate - inspired "creative" activity: the finances. It is estimated that every such tunnel costs about half a million dollars to construct. Keeping in mind the unending wailing of the Western bleeding hearts about the dire economic situation in Gaza, this may provide some food for thought, you have to agree. As could this bit of graphics:


But if you, as I am, are not financially savvy, think about a humanitarian aspect of these tunnels. It is by now established that the neighborhoods of Gaza City are infested by these tunnels, and entry/exit points are numerous and well appointed affairs, as are the tunnels you have seen in that clip. Have you asked yourself, why, in the midst of the intense firefights that cause so many civilian* deaths, Hamas leaders are not offering the tunnels as protection for simple citizens?

Part of the answer could be found in a WaPo article (but read it all afterwards), where the author describes the three types of tunnels:
Another set of tunnels reportedly services the Hamas high command. “Every single leader of Hamas, from its lowest ranking bureaucrats to its most senior leaders, is intimately familiar with the route to the security tunnel assigned to him and his family,” al-Monitor reported. “The most senior leadership has its own specific tunnel.”
Yes indeed. If a Hamas' mandarin and his family have to use a tunnel and it happens to be clogged by simple mortals - no, it simply wouldn't do, would it?

Not only don't Hamas ogres care about their people, they want them to die:
On July 16, 2014, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) issued a report stating: “the Israeli military delivered text messages to virtually all the residents of Ash Shuja’iyya and Az Zaitun neighborhoods in eastern Gaza city, approximately 100,000 people, warning them to leave their homes by 8 am today (16 July), ahead of attacks to be launched in the area.” The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also made phone calls and distributed leaflets.

OCHA then describes what came next: “Subsequently, the Palestinian Ministry of Interior in Gaza reportedly instructed the residents to…not flee the area.” As a result, OCHA admits: “the vast majority decided to stay.”

(*) When talking about civilians in Gaza, always keep this in mind.

Update: some more information about costs and other implications of the tunnels.

UNRWA " Demands Full Respect for the Sanctity of Its Premises in Gaza"

Indeed.

Victor Topaller, "MASPIK"

Victor Topaller (born in Moscow, Russia) is an American political writer, television host and political analyst, as well as host of a number of syndicated radio shows. V.Topaller has authored several books and contributes commentary to various American media outlets.
There is a word in Hebrew: "Maspik.” Enough. No more. People can’t take any more of this: no more releasing killers from jail, murderers who walk free and continue killing. No more looking into the gloating snouts of the happy brutes, no more watching that filthy riffraff triumphantly wave the bleeding bowels of torn apart Israelis; enough looking at general festivities in celebration of the murder of the three boys ... Shouldn’t there be some limit to all this?!
Now I shall leave you alone to allow you to read the whole article in peace.

And now to our own (Israeli) garbage

Take a look at this, please:


This is not a result of close encounter with a Gazan rocket, nor is it a consequence of domestic violence. But I'll let the victim, Meytal Sella, tell her own story:
My "Hasbara" results - a knee, an elbow and cheek sore and a rib questionable.

I have passed near a demonstration of the radical left on the way home (incidentally, I do not agree with them) and I heard calls of "death [to the lefties] and other evil slogans, and it hurt. All I wanted was to explain that the Zionist left supports our soldiers, doesn't calls our pilots killers and wants to get rid of Hamas, but is against violence. So - I wanted. They wanted to muzzle me at any price. Well, at least I understand now how Rihanna and Whitney felt...
I am not sure I share Meytal's politics, not being acquainted with her, but it doesn't matter. Because I think I known very well the kind of vermin who are able to do what was done to Meytal.
  • The kind of garbage that runs amok in the street after every terrorist act or after a rumor of one, hollering in their mindless frenzy "Death to Arabs" and attacking helpless and unprotected workers in shops, if they look even vaguely Arabic.
  • The kind of garbage that provides fertile ground for inhuman murderers of the kind that recently burned alive an Arab boy.
  • The kind that spews racist slogans at slightest provocation and without one.
  • The kind that hardly ever serves in the army, being usually exempt for various reasons I wouldn't go into - better leave it to reader's imagination.
  • The kind that will faint seeing a real armed Hamas terrorist or the shadow of thereof.
Believe you me, we need your kind right now like we need a cholera outbreak. And if you want to fight someone, just ask for it, and maybe, just maybe, our CoS will find a way to ship you over to Gaza City - to fend for your own repulsive self.

As a side issue, and just out of interest - tell me how are you different from this character:


Pox on your house...

Nasrallah to Mashaal: Willing to cooperate with you in your struggle

This is all the news says, leaving me thirsty for details. Nasrallah from his bunker calling Mashaal in Qatar. So who will come to whom to cooperate? Nasrallah to Qatar or Mashaal to bunker?

Hmm... I am confused.


New York Times: All The News Hamas Sees Fit to Print

Maybe all of this is an illustration of just how biased against Israel the Times has become—so biased that Times photographers and editors are simply blind to any image that doesn’t conform to their view of the war.

Or maybe, in the interest of the safety and access of their journalists, the Times is complying with Hamas instructions.

It would appear that Hamas’s media instructions have been heard loud and clear at the New York Times, and the response is obedience. But the Times also isn't bothering to inform its readers that the images they’re seeing of Gaza are only the ones Hamas wants them to see. It’s time for the Times to tell its readers exactly why they are being presented with such a distorted picture of this war.
Yeah, whatever. Read it all.

As for Times telling us why - good luck with that.

Jon Donnison of BBC, journalistic integrity, whatever

First of all, an important disclaimer: right now, people of Gaza are dying in reality, among them women and children, to provide Hamas masters their revolting propaganda feed. It is impossible to remain apathetic to their suffering.

But then there is suffering and there is media, and... but it's better to see that than to read that (but you should do both).

A BBC war reporter made a shocking blunder by tweeting a photograph of an injured child from Syria but indicating she was from Gaza.
So, folks, what you shall see immediately is not Gaza:


This, on the other hand, is Gaza (but not right now, rather during earlier, happy and peaceful times):


So there.

Who really shot down MH17 aka MH370? It takes only two Jews.

Even during these troubled days there is a time and a place for a few good laughs, especially if they are provided gratis by an eager standup comedian. This time the fun is provided by a guy named Jim Stone, who nurtures a site "Jim Stone, freelance journalist". Unfortunately, I haven't yet figured out a way to link directly to the desired text on this site, so you will have to do some creative searching to get to the quotes I use.

Strong emperical evidence Israel shot down plane

(Original spelling kept faithfully). Here is the reasoning (unbeatable, if you ask me):
Plane shoot down: approximately 14:15 UTC. Israeli assault on Gaza: 14:00 UTC. See a connection there? And when you consider the fact that it took time to confirm the downing, the two times actually match even more closely. Israel's assault on Gaza is viewed badly by the world community, what better way to bury it in the news than a plane shoot down, complete with the threat of a war with Russia?
And the next statement clinches the whole deal for me:
And even if Russian forces did do this, it only takes a couple Jews among them to cause something like this.
The easiness with which the most secret illicit activities of the Elders are outed leaves me open-mouthed and slack jawed.

But this is far from being all. Our buddy Jim has dug deeper, and here is the pure gold he came up with:

MH17 all but completely proven to be flight 370
From the Washington Times:

"MOSCOW — A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off. The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition."
And this, of course, was a thread that has unraveled the whole enchilada (sorry for mixed metaphor):
This strongly supports MH370 as being the real shoot down plane, with all passengers dead long before and probably being taken off of ice and loaded into the plane for final disposal. If a body is already dead before a crash, crash damage will not show up the same way it will with live bodies.
If you had a mad impulse to laugh at that, wait, here comes a totally scientific proof:
A good example of this effect is to take a piece of chicken and throw it in a hot pan for a few seconds. If you remove it from the hot pan within a short time, it will look totally uncooked. Yet if you put your hand on that hot pan for even half a second, it will be badly burned, and show it. Live flesh shows injury easily because of the way living cells respond to injury. If the bodies were dead for days and possibly loaded onto the plane well chilled it would explain a lot about their relatively undamaged appearance in the wreckage.
(After reading this, I am currently looking for an angle to implicate KFC in the whole shebang, but it is a slow process. We shall see). Now a final revelation that will help us all to connect the dots:
And speaking about false flags, remember that Flight 370 clone in Tel Aviv? and do not forget about the 777 that was stopped by the Dutch from crashing the nuclear summit right after flight 370 vanished, as this web site predicted was likely to happen.
So now, after all the necessary dots were placed on a map, I can connect all of them for you (with permission obtained from the Elders' HQ, of course).

A crack team of Elders' mind control experts
It started with the Elders stealing the MH370. At the time the only purpose for the operation was to test the newly developed CAMC (Civil Aviation Mind Control) technique. The plane, as Jim helpfully reminds, was stored for a while in Tel Aviv. Of course, the plane was equipped with enough freezers to keep the carcasses fresh and available. Then the plane was used in an aborted attempt to crash (no pan intended) the nuclear party in Amsterdam (Jim again). Since there wasn't anything special on the table at the moment, the plane was kept in Schiphol airport near Amsterdam, under the famous Mossad invisibility cloak, for a rainy day. And eventually the day came. Unfortunately, the freezing equipment went on the fritz a few days before the operation. There was a big deal of bitter correspondence with the manufacturer about quality control and about the need for express warranty repairs, but you know how it goes with fridge repairs nowadays...

So there, and I shall leave you with a bit of a mystery for your homework, to develop your appetite for solving the Elders' riddles. It comes from Jim too:
Interesting tidbit - Planes first flight was on July 17 1997 and was shot down on the anniversary of TWA flight 800 . . .
So figure it out.

P.S. And if your appetite for mysteries of the kind has already grown enough: just guess who done in the Fukushima Nuclear plant (wink wink, nudge nudge). No cheating, though - click on the link only if you surrendered.

Update: why do some people call us by such complicated names, like in this headline:

Global Elite Take Down Malaysian Airline MH17 to Hide the Cure For Aids? Getting Rid of the Cure to Keep Money in Their Pockets and Continue their Depopulation Agenda…

Global Elite my foot. Compare with this clear and straightforward one (from same post):
