Short cuts

by Eyal Weizman

London Review of Books
Vol 34, No 23, 6 December 2012

In the course of the eight-day aerial bombardment of Gaza by Israel – using
drones, F-16s and Apache helicopters – more than 1350 buildings were hit.
They included military depots, which are considered legitimate targets under
international humanitarian law. But the police stations, TV stations, a
local healthcare centre, ministries, road tunnels and a bridge that were
also targeted are legally protected as civilian infrastructure. To justify
their destruction, Israel argued that ‘they belong to a terrorist entity.’
This is an argument that would render all public buildings and physical
infrastructure in the Strip legitimate targets: it is not accepted by
international lawyers outside Israel.

Israel’s attempt to provide any sort of legal defence at all, however
tenuous, is a response to the Goldstone Report, which alleged (before
Goldstone himself recanted) that both the Israeli military and Hamas had
committed war crimes during the 2008-9 conflict, and that Israel might even
be guilty of ‘crimes against humanity’. During the Goldstone storm, in a
speech delivered at an Israeli security institute, Netanyahu called
organisations that claimed to support the principles of human rights and
international law the third strategic threat to Israel’s security – third
after Iran and Hizbullah. Israeli think-tanks, like some of their Western
counterparts, now refer to this ‘third strategic threat’ of legal action
against state militaries as ‘lawfare’: the use of international law as a
weapon by a non-state party, to make up for its weakness on the field of
combat.

if it is up to israel then whether the palestinians "negotiate" or "refuse" as you call it then the palestinians will not have their own state. of course you know this. you are as dishonest as your folks in israel. i guess you can't help it.
israelis want palestinians' land. and they mean to get it, with negotiations, without negotiations.

Just another example of how Zionists are brainwashing Americans. The Palestinians are anti-Semite and Jew haters because they have pro-Palestinian and anti-occupation posters in the restaurant. So this show is being anti-Palestinian while accusing them of being anti-Semite (even though Palestinians themselves are Semites).
Not to mention they're ridiculing something that's making millions of people miserable. I can only imagine how those Jews would react if someone made a laughing matter out of the holocaust.

By the way, Palestinian women would rather die than be near a Jew.
And her name is Shara? Really? At least think of a real Arabic name.

There is no Pal land, it will be only after negotiation and peace making with Israel, period. There is no way around this, no way, so take it or leave it.

That's our resident terrorist, Ahmad, with a new nick. You should remember him. Hhe was here a couple of years ago with his Hamas hero bullsh!t. Typical thick headed Palestinian twit, or just twit, posing as an quasi-educated Jew hating suzu sympathizer. Peas in a pod. He had some great Hamas avatars and American flag draped coffins that gave him wood. Other than that, he's cherry.

What is being done to oppose Al Qaeda in Syria? All we hear about is the Iranian “threat.” Al Qaeda in Syria gets a pass. This is more than weird. Some dare call it conspiracy. Once again the US government is building up enemies that they will ask the dumb ass American people to fight in the future. So who actually is ultimately behind Al Qaeda, if not the US government? They send drones against Al Qaeda in Pakistan and Yemen but in Syria they are left to operate freely and grow in strength. The Cryptocracy needs to secretly bolster enemies in order to keep fattening the military-industrial complex and an endless foreign war/world policeman orientation in the United States.

Ok, ladies and ladies now lets go to the macho Turks. Germany just Ok'd 400 combat troops and batteries of Patriot misslies to be sent to Turkey to the Syrian border to save erDOGen ass in case the other muslim God from Syria attacks Turkey. Where is the heroic Turkish army or all they can kill is innocent Armenians and unarmed Kurdish FReedom fighters. Oh, and where are all those nazislamist mother fuckerd who are lieing all the time about Americans dieing for Israel. Antisemitic breathing gaRbage.
Hey mussies, go kill each other, go kill, rape, steal, burn, be a real good muslim. IDIOTS.
