Israeli 'Massacre' in Gaza Paid for by the US - Sputnik International

“On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker and John Kiriakou are joined by Daoud Kuttab, an award-winning Palestinian journalist, and Ali Abunimah, the co-founder of The Electronic Intifada and author of the book The Battle for Justice in Palestine.”

“Today is Nakba Day, or Yawm an-Nakba, the ‘Day of Catastrophe,’ commemorated on May 15, the day after Israel's declaration of independence. The day commemorates the estimated 700,000 Palestinians who fled or were expelled and the hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages that were depopulated or destroyed. These refugees and their descendants now number more than 2 million. At least 60 Palestinians were killed yesterday and thousands wounded in demonstrations in Gaza over Nakba Day. What were the global reactions to this ‘massacre’?”

fuckyeahmarxismleninism: The Sabra and Shatila massacre, which occurred between September 16-18, 1982, saw the slaughter of nearly 3,500 civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites. Hundreds of members of the Phalange party — a Lebanese fascist militia — in collaboration with the Israeli army, slaughtered Palestinians, mostly women, children, and the elderly, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp located in Beirut. The massacre took place under the command of Israeli Gen. Ariel Sharon with active collaboration from the U.S.

“新たな世論調査の結果、アメリカ人の多くが、イランの都市のひとつに対して〔広島〕同様の攻撃を行い、数百万人の民間人を殺害することを支持していることが分かりました。

スタンフォード大学の政治学のサガン教授とダートマス大学の政治学のヴァレンティノ準教授は、26日木曜、ウォールストリートジャーナルの記事の中で、この世論調査の結果について説明しています。

この世論調査では、回答者に、アメリカが核合意へのイランの違反を発見した後に同国に対する厳しい制裁を行使したという偽造されたニュースを読ませています。イランは、これに対して、ペルシャ湾でアメリカの空母を攻撃し、アメリカ兵2403人が死亡させます。このアメリカ兵の死者数は、1941年9月7日の日本の真珠湾攻撃で死亡した人の数です。さらに議会はイランに対して宣戦布告し、アメリカ大統領は、イランの無条件降伏を求めます。アメリカの軍幹部は大統領の前に、2万人のアメリカ兵が犠牲になる可能性を有するテヘランへの地上攻撃でイラン政府を降伏させるか、テヘラン近郊に核爆弾を落として、イランの民間人10万人を殺害するかの二つの選択肢を提示します。

二人の大学関係者が述べたように調査結果は驚きに値するもので、回答者の59%がイランの一都市への原爆投下を支持しています。共和党の支持者はこのような攻撃を認める可能性が高く、81%がそれを支持しています。民主党では47%がこれに賛成しています。

奇妙なのは、イラン市民の被害者数が最初の数字の20倍に増えても、59%がイランへの攻撃に賛成する、と回答していることです”

アメリカ・ロンポール研究所「アメリカの戦争において、民間人の殺害は長い歴史がある」 - Pars Today

“ロンポール研究所のインターネットサイトは…「アメリカはなぜ、良心の呵責にさいなまれずに中東全土で民間人の殺害を続けられるのか? その答えは簡単である。これらのアメリカの兵士の祖父の世代も、第二次世界大戦で多数の民間人を殺害し、しかも当時、彼らは民間人の殺害が戦争による副次的な被害であると見せようとはせず、むしろ都市や民間人を攻撃することは、アメリカの政策の一部だった」としました”

“アメリカは、第二次世界大戦中、敵国の民間人を最大限に殺害する空爆を計画していました。例えば、通常、レンガや石でできていたヨーロッパの都市の住宅に対し、アメリカとその同盟国は、これらの住宅を破壊するため通常爆弾を使用しましたが、多くの家が木でできていた日本では、通常の爆弾では思うような効果が現れなかったため、アメリカは焼夷弾を使用していました。

アメリカ空軍は、日本の都市や農村を焼き尽くすことができるように爆弾を設計するため、ユタ州に日本の村と同じものを作りました。この実験で、アメリカ空軍は、日本の家の屋根に傾斜があり、軽量の焼夷弾の多くが屋根から下に落ちていくこと、日本の家の屋根を壊し、家の中に落ちて内側から火事を起こすためには、さらに重量の焼夷弾が必要であることを悟りました。歴史的な資料は、アメリカが、日本の木造の都市に大きな火災を引き起こす計画を、日本の真珠湾攻撃のずっと前から立てていたことを示しています。1945年3月10日、アメリカのB29戦闘機300機が、同時に東京の空を焼き尽くしました。この爆撃で、数十万人の日本人が死亡し、100万人以上が住む家を失いました。そしてアメリカは後に、これ以上に恐ろしい原爆を広島と長崎に投下しました。

朝鮮戦争でも、アメリカは、次々に爆弾を投下し、北朝鮮の人口のおよそ20%を殺害しました。ベトナム戦争でも、アメリカは、この国の多数の人々を空爆によって殺害しました”

【graphic】 Oyoun Qarra Massacre, 20 May 1990

“In the early hours of Sunday, May 20th, 1990, a group of 100 Palestinian labourers from the Gaza Strip were waiting at the Oyoun Qarra (Rishon Lezion) bus stop to be transported to their working place. An Israeli occupation soldier, Ami Popper, from nearby Rishon Lezion Zionist colony approached the workers and asked them for their IDs. After making sure all the workers were Palestinians, Popper lined them up, asked them to kneel down in 3 lines and using his M16 sub-machine gun he opened fire killing 7 on the spot and injuring others. When the Israeli police finally arrived to the scene of the massacre, they started beating the Palestinians workers who had survived the death machine. On that day, later known as ‘Black Sunday’, at least another 6 Palestinians were killed by Israeli occupation forces in subsequent demonstrations while protesting the massacre.”momo33me

Leaked emails expose Sony concern over report its cameras used in Gaza attack | The Electronic Intifada

“Nothing to be alarmed at right now but, while Michael was out I worked with Nicole on a story that broke from Iran Press. They alleged that Sony CCTV’s were being used as a part of the guidance system for Israeli rockets that were bombing Gaza. In fact they held up part of the camera housing for all to see. Social media then mentioned Kaz Hirai and a couple of other Sony execs. We also noted a 12 August Facebook posting mentioning Michael and Amy (only 3 people ‘liked’ the post). It was not threatening and it has not materialized. The entire matter seems to have calmed. We will continue to monitor this.”

“... [in the report from Iran’s Press TV] reporter Halla Alsafadi talks about visiting the Gaza village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, where dozens of civilians had been killed by Israeli forces that had been besieging it.

At one point, Alsafadi holds up a piece of equipment that looks like it came from the head of a missile, drone or bomb.

‘This is another part of an F-16 rocket,’ Alsafadi states. ‘It is made in Japan, it states this very clearly. “Sony” and made in Japan. There is a camera right in front of this piece of a rocket. With this camera, they actually choose their target and kill their target.’

While the item Alsafadi is holding does appear to be a camera affixed to a missile part, she does not hold it close enough to the TV camera for the markings she quotes to be seen by the viewer.

In September, the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, a nonprofit group that tracks ‘the human rights abuse and advances of companies around the world,’ said Sony ‘would not respond to the allegations’ in the Press TV report.

But according to the group, Sony told Japanese media that it ‘does not design, manufacture, or sell weapons or any products intended for use in weapons.’

It is not surprising that Sony would not want its equipment associated with the Israeli military since Amnesty International has said Israeli forces displayed ‘callous indifference’ to civilian lives in Gaza in attacks amounting to ‘war crimes.’

But Sony’s lack of transparency raises the question of whether third parties are installing its equipment in weapons with or without its direct consent and whether it should exercise more control over end users.”
