The Blood of Palestine is on the Hands of the Bribe-Takers

israel-signAlthough Levy often comes out strongly against Israel’s actions, so much so that he now has to have a bodyguard, he is dead wrong to try to blame HAMAS for anything. Israel started everything, by having themselves plonked down in Arab territory.

(BANGKOK)  The blood of the thousands of Palestinians who have been killed by the so-called Israel Defence Forces since the beginning of the siege of Gaza, stains the hands of each and every politician who has done nothing to censure Israel for this cruel and illegal act of virtual imprisonment, or who has taken any kind of bribe to bolster his or her election-campaign coffers, in return for turning their backs on the quite obvious fact that Apartheid Israel has never had any intention other than to genocide the Palestinian people.

GAZA: Mahar’s Story

Mahar-400-x-300That day there was a heavy bombardment in Shujeiyah. Her family decided to try to escape, and flee the upper floors. As they ran down the stairs, shells scored a direct hit on their home. It collapsed around them.

(GAZA)  Mahar Hamid Sheikh-Khalil is seven years old. She used to have a mother and father, three sisters and a brother, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

She used to play with her brother and sisters and their cousins, scampering about the yard or on the roof, sometimes in the street with the neighbours’ kids. She used to walk, and skip and jump.

From Wounded Knee to Gaza Massacre

The Zionist butchers massacring the Palestinians in Gaza are the same interests that carried out the genocide of 150 million indigenous people in the western hemisphere. Like with us, the British set up the genocide. Just like the Palestinian, every inch of our land is illegally occupied.

Global News Centre

(Mohawk Nation News)  US, Canada and Britain are behind Israel’s program of genocide against humanity and Mother Earth. These three corporate entities point to us as the example for Israel to follow. That is why Harper, Obama and Cameron have unending support to the Zionists to cover their historic crimes committed in the Western Hemisphere. Their aim is complete annihilation of the Palestinians and total theft of all their land.

So making guns illegal will take them off the street?

There is an old saying that if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. If you don’t believe it, just look at Chicago.

Bob Collinsworth Global News Centre

(HARRISVILLE, N.H.)  Here’s the real problem: There are dozens of things that we have made illegal yet they continue to be available on the street. Do some research on Operation Fast and Furious. Our own President and Attorney General have assisted in putting guns in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels. Some of those guns were used to kill U.S. Border Patrol agents that had families. These politicians have no clue what they are doing. They want absolute control over the populace and as long as the constitution stands, they are breaking the law. Politicians have gotten out of control over the last 40 or 50 years. They need to be reined-in before it is too late or we will end-up with designees of the Bilderberg Group running our country rather than those we elect.
