Nobody should be a number: Names of those killed in Gaza

At the time of writing, Israeli air strikes and shelling had killed dozens of Palestinians since the start of Operation Protective Edge. There had been no deaths on the Israeli side.

Some of those killed by Israel were Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants, others were civilians, including women and children. The Israeli army has been bombing the family homes of militants, which it claims were also being used for military purposes. Many of the children killed thus far were related to individuals whose homes were targeted.

All too often, casualties on both sides of this conflict are remembered only as numbers. This post is a reminder that each one has a name.

      Each and every one of those deaths lies at the feet of Hamas and their partner, Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah is also taking part in the rocket attacks on Israel.

      These criminals should be punished severely.

          Every single one of these deaths was unnecessary. Stop launching rockets at Israel. Stop kidnapping and murdering civilians. Stop. Simply stop. And then NOT ONE PALESTINIAN WOULD BE KILLED.

            Rab’s World;

            “Stop. Simply stop. Simply stop….existing.”

            If you believe that “existing” for Palestinians is to perpetrate violence against Israelis, then your comment does make sense. That’s not what I wrote, however.

            Now skulk back into your hole, you little loonie anti-Semite.

            Stop encroaching on other people’s land & expanding your settlements. That’s the crux of the matter! How would u feel if other people take your land away? Simple question.

            Tell that to the Palestinian youth who was lynched and burned alive.

            You are a disgrace to the Zionist movement.

            What does his murder have to do with what I’ve written here?

            In fact, his murder is not only an anomaly, the disgusted reactions to this heinous crime from Israel’s leaders, media, general population and the parents of the Israeli teens who were kidnapped and murdered three weeks earlier exemplify the differences between Israeli society and Palestinian society. To remind you, they were handing out sweets in Gaza after the kidnapping became public.

            It’s not up to the Palestinians to stop resisting, the legal obligation lies with Israel to grant Palestinians their inalienable rights such as freedom, equality and right of return. To a supremacist, blaming the leadership of the people you murder seems perfectly logical. But that’s what Israel is: an ethnic supremacist state backed by the world’s only superpower. And before you sling charges of ‘anti-semite’ at people for saying that the Palestinians have a right to exist and defend themselves, you ought to remember that Palestinians are semites too.

            Rab is not a disgrace to the Zionist movement at all.

            What is Zionism but the establishment of a Jewish state on land (notwithstanding the historical connection of Arabic Jews to the land) which predominantly belonged to non-Jews.

            Israel as a Jewish state could only come into being if the existing non-Jewish people were ethnically cleansed from the land. Now, it appears that Zionism is trying to concentrate as many non-Jews as possible into the smallest areas of land, ie Gaza, Areas A & B (Israel wants Area C minus the non-Jews). Whether this happens by Palestinians transferring or dying is of little moment to the Zionist cause. Of course, if the Palestinians submit to their occupation and their permanent statelessness they may well be allowed to live by their Jewish overlords. Rab is Zionism.

        You’re just like a character from those “shoot and cry” Israeli movies Noam Sheizaf wrote about in his Zero Dark Thirty review. Yes, the Israeli government had NO CHOICE but to respond to the dinky little bottle rockets, which have thus far killed nobody in this little exchange, by doing the exact same thing and targetting an urban area chock full of innocent civilians for air strikes.

        Did it ever occur to you that, even if you aren’t “deliberately” trying to kill civilians by dropping bombs, if you know for a fact that innocents will die when you drop them (for whatever reason), throwing up your hands and crying “we had no choice!” doesn’t absolve you of responsibility after you’ve already done the damage, especially since those bombings do nothing but cause misery and suffering. Nor does the fact that the other side does it too.

        There is always a choice, and now the Israeli government is trying to fool everybody into accepting its narrative of the usual false dilemma (either engage in both-eyes-for-one-eye revenge strikes and settlement building, or somehow Israel’s existence is threatened), and believing that there wasn’t any choice.

        in Northern Ireland the IRA wanted to push the Brits and the loyalists into the sea. Thousands were killed in bombing atrocities. Did Britain send tanks, fighters and helicopter gunships to bombard homes and localities? No, we use policing and soldiers on the streets many of whom lost their lives. But we also did the unthinkable and talked to those who were killing us. As for your commenta result we now have a peace with some of the leading IRA “gangsters” in responsible positions of government and leading the peace movement itself. If Israelis could listen to their own Peaceniks and Refuseniks, they might be able to make a worthwhile peace. But a “hundred eyes for an eye” can never be a respected policy and deserves our contempt. Remember also that “Semites” are the descendants of “shem” and that includes…. yes, Arabs.

        kindergarten logic is blaming the death of innocent Palestinians on Hamas

        100 children killed by imprecise battlefield weapons, 100 children killed, 100 children! Do you have no compassion or feelings of guilt for 3 weeks of slaughter? Do you have no feelings of shame for the BLOOD LIBEL of saying Palestinian mums and dads put themselves and their babies in the way of Israeli bombs? Do you remember the cruelty of the blood libel against Jews? Have you not seen the 100,00 people fleeing on your TV? The British did not use battlefield weapons against the IRA, we used the boots on the street of brave policemen and soldiers. And we TALKED to those who wanted to push us into the Irish sea!

      Hamas is morally bankrupt organization. all they want is blood. Watch some of these videos and what they teach kids. this is a crime against humanity. When Palestinian Parents love their kids more then they hate Israel there will be peace. http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=846

      the blame is only on hamas for those victims. israel is the most moral country in the world. no country can be indifferent for thousends of missels and rockets shot on its citizens. hamas uses the citizens as human shields. israel is not seeking war or occupation. israel offered ceasefire, israel offered a two state solution and a peace agrrement. palestinians refuse to negotiate because there only goal is to destroy israel and kill all jewish people. this is the only truth.

      “Israel as a Jewish state could only come into being if the existing non-Jewish people were ethnically cleansed from the land.”

      With all due respect, I don’t agree. Rab, John W, Whiplash, Gustav, SonnyBoy and Steve Plaut are all diehard hawks of the Jabotinsky/Kahane mold. (If I’ve left out any other fascists, my condolences).

      There were other ways things could have turned out, but that would require a discussion taking up a huge bandwidth here. I, for example, am a Democratic Zionist who supports the BDS movement, and it is from that vantage point that I’m calling out the warmongers here for what they are.

      A good account of the facts. The rest seems to be vitriol.

      The arguments I am seeing today in this forum, mostly from Jews threatened by recent events, are actually evidence of a good thing. I think these people are afraid of the consensus the rest of the world is approaching regarding the state of Israel, a beacon of security for Jews worldwide, and a pariah state in the making.

      I really think that this time, the Israeli propaganda machine is simply outmatched by the profusion of evidence. In words we all understand: “I was blind, but now I see.”

      Do your part in holding Israel to account for this ongoing war crime and join BDS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boycott,_Divestment_and_Sanctions
