IDF weapons cause immeasurable suffering in Gaza
by Peter Eyre on 29 Apr 2010 0 Comment

Ban Ki-moon did his usual whistle stop tour of Gaza and flexed his muscles by referring to the Israeli blockade of Gaza as “unacceptable suffering of human beings” "not sustainable" and "counter-productive." Ban visited the occupied territories where he called on the Israeli and Palestinian authorities to engage in direct talks, and reiterated the Quartet's calls to reach a settlement within two years. "We are committed to work together with the Palestinian people and help your cause to complete negotiations on a settlement of all core issues within 24 months,"


Ban ki-moon had previously attended a meeting with the US, Russia and EU in Moscow and issued a joint statement condemning the 1,600 housing development approved by the Israeli Government in East Jerusalem. In my opinion it is time for UN to impose sanctions on Israel to bring it to its knees. It should:

-        Stop all aspects of aid. This must include Financial & Military.

-        Embargo on all trade with Israel.

This would have an immediate impact on Israel and would result in stopping the current Oil / Gas production and exploration offshore.


The UN always has the power to impose such actions against almost all other countries, but does nothing against a country that has turned its back on more than 130 UN resolutions and carried out War Crimes against Lebanon and Gaza. IDF has indiscriminately contaminated vast tracts of land and people within with uranium weapons. This contamination extended into Israel itself, neighbouring countries, Middle East and beyond. Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the future capital of West Bank and Gaza strip under the two state solution, but many settlers see West Bank as the land for the Jews.


Again we see the same old story coming out of the United Nations. Why 24 months? The road map to peace has being going on for decades and it is very clear that the UN does not have any ability to enforce its will and Israeli has no intention to seek peace. One only has to look at the historical comments made by a string of past and current Israeli leaders to see only how they view Palestinians and also their evil intentions.


Before going into who said what, let’s reflect on the true situation in Gaza and West Bank whilst trying to understand the mindset of the Israeli Government. The international media has to take full responsibility for falsely reporting the true “Grass Root” issue that exist to this day. Thus, when they refer to the suffering in Gaza and West Bank they tend to refer to it as the Palestinian–Israel conflict. One cannot compare what is going on in Israel to what is going on in Palestine. On one side of the fence you have a lifestyle that is Idealistic and Materialistic and on the other an area of intense deprivation and suffering with many Palestinians living in refugee camps (tent cities).


The media does not report the daily looting of Palestinian homes, the almost daily killing / injured Palestinians, daily arrest of many Palestinians (especially youth), and the continued contamination of its environment by the IDF. In Gaza the Israel Air Force fly daily over the strip with fighters, helicopter or drones, all fully armed. The entire strip is under constant surveillance from “Big Brother,” and bombing/missile attacks. Recently, they attacked the Raffah Area and Gaza City; Gaza is well and truly under full occupation.


In West Bank, the IDF and Israeli Secret Service/Police patrol the streets in a very hostile and aggressive manner. There is no doubt in my mind that Israel is a true dictatorship and Apartheid government with Racism at its heart. As someone once reported: “There is no doubt that this behavior is part of a continuous maneuver to wear down all moral resistance, to physically and mentally exhaust the Palestinians so that those who don't want to be stacked in jails or cemeteries flee and go to live crammed together with others in refugee camps.”


There is no limit to the level of abuse that the Israeli IDF/Security Services/Police have used or continue to use. I can give a graphic example from an article I read. One needs to take a deep breath when reading such material and trying to understand what makes people carry out such atrocities. It is not only evil but borders on being satanic: “I was on their kitchen terrace, watching how a boy no older than eleven or twelve removed an Israeli flag that was hanging on the door of a building and replaced it with a Palestinian one. Palestinian flags have been forbidden for a long time and, at night, boys switch them. But the boy I was watching got caught by soldiers. They took hold of him and jokingly tried to force him to kiss the Israeli flag and to step on the Palestinian one. The boy did just the opposite: he kissed the Palestinian flag and stepped on the Israeli one. They dragged him to his house. He lived a few doors from ours. A few minutes later, I'm not sure how long, I heard a shot. Do you know what the soldiers had done? They had taken the boy to his house, forced his parents to sit in an armchair, placed him on their knees and then they shot him in the head.”


Let’s return to the mindset of the many leaders of Israel that have contaminated our planet; there is no “Road Map to Peace”; no breakdown in relationships between the US, UK, EU Government and Israel, but rather the opposite. The Israelis and Pro Israeli Lobbyists in the West are part of every nation’s political infrastructure and have significant control over the policies that exist. They fund almost every political candidate and party as long as that politician or party lobby’s in the best interest of Israel.


So what have these past and current illustrious leaders said that would send alarm bells ringing through the minds and hearts of all Palestinians. Read deep between the lines and fully understand that Israel very clearly wants to take over the entire Palestinian Territory:-


-        There cannot be Zionism, colonization nor a Jewish State without the expulsion of Arabs and the expropriation of their lands. (Ariel Sharon to France Press, November 15, 1998)

-        The partition of Palestine is not fair. We will never accept it. Eretz Israel will be given back to the people of Israel. All of it and forever. (Menahem Begin)

-        A Palestinian partner for a negotiation does not exist. (Ariel Sharon)

-        I have always believed in the eternal and historical right of our people to all this earth. (Ehud Olmert, before the U.S. Congress, June 30, 2006)

-        There is no such thing as a Palestinian people… It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn't exist. (Golda Meir)

-        We will never permit a Palestinian State. (Netanyahu, very recently)

-        More recently a reporter heard a colonist from West Bank (a tiny, supposedly Palestinian territory after Oslo) say on TV: "We will never leave this land. It was given to us by God."….the reporter said “So if it was given to them by God… who will discuss it”?


I will now return to the topic of immeasurable suffering being endured by the people of Gaza and to some degree West Bank. What we are looking at here was initially a big cover up by the United Nations in New York, Geneva and locally and to a certain degree by the Palestinian Authority. Indications have always shown that the IDF used Gaza as a test bed for current and advanced weaponry (most of which contain uranium components). One must not only point a finger at the Israeli Government for using such weapons, but also blame the UN for not vetting Israel in its nuclear research programme. I find it hard to understand how the US, UK, EU Governments continuously harass other nations for carrying out such research and yet carry out their own without being held to account by the UN (the organization that is supposed to protect us).


We know Israel is extremely advanced in domestic and military nuclear research, especially at Dimona in the Southern Negev Desert. They are allowed (unchecked) to develop nuclear warheads and have in the past converted some US missiles. They have a full arsenal of weapons that contain uranium components and combined with the US weapons stockpile continue to use them on a regular basis. One must fully understand that when any such weapons makes contact it emits a huge aerosol of radioactive nano-particles that drift on the wind and do not recognize international borders.


One cannot allow the United States to get away with this world crisis as US is the manufacturer and main instigator of these so called “conventional weapons.” One must also blame the UK and EU Governments for not only using these weapons themselves but in approving the shipment of such arms to Israel.


The procedure in the US used to be that when a country is selected and or approved to receive such weapons the US Department of Defence raise the documentation for transit through US Congress for final clearance and approval. The ultimate decision for such weapons rests with the “Command in Chief”…the President himself. It is clear that in the event one proves that these weapons are illegal or are to be used illegally then the President and Senior Member of Staff are truly guilty of “War Crimes.” With all the countries being aware of these weapons and in some cases using them, then they themselves are complicit in this mass genocide.


So, we have seen the after effects of such weapons in the Balkans which now has a very high rate of cancer amongst it population and is running out of conventional burial grounds; this is true of Kuwait (the best kept secret); Iraq is totally contaminated with high rates of cancer and birth defects to a point whereby women are being asked not to have a family. The same problem is emerging in Afghanistan on a much bigger scale as the usage of such weapons by the US, UK and Coalition Forces is two fold that of Iraq.


IDF used these weapons many years ago against the Egyptians and in 2006 against the Lebanese; but this is kept under lock and key.


In Gaza, this mass genocide or intended de-population programme suggests a very clear picture of an evil/satanic approach in targeting mainly Islamic countries. So where is the so called Axis of Evil that George Bush, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown talk about? Not in the distant Middle East, but right here in the heart of the West.


We did not go into Iraq or Afghanistan for democracy, we went in for greed and to control the world’s energy markets. IDF went into Lebanon to flex its muscle in the same way it did with Egypt. IDF went into Gaza to secure the huge offshore natural resources and to maintain control of what they consider to be the underdogs (Palestinians).


Evidence from the hospitals in Gaza reveal that the rate of cancers and birth defects have more than doubled since “Cast Lead”. The result of war in Afghanistan has hit the downwind countries of North Pakistan and Northern India; our own (British) troops are also victim to this same contamination. I call it Gulf War Syndrome, they refer to it as Post Traumatic Stress, which is totally false.


These are the finding of a Senior Ministry of Health Official – Medhat Abbas at a press conference on March 18 2010:

Studies conducted by a group of Italian researchers have revealed the presence of dangerous levels of toxins in the bodies of Palestinian victims of Israeli bombings during operation Cast Lead in 2008-2009. The results of tests conducted on a sample of 15 dead and wounded victims of the war on Gaza, in addition to another sample of 95 citizens, showed the presence of 30 toxic components, notably high levels of uranium.


Gaza’s Health Minister, Dr Bassem Naim, said the study of the biological samples proved that the Israelis used internationally prohibited weapons against the Palestinians. He warned that the large percentage of toxic uranium in the territory would pose a real threat to future generations. Dr Naim added that his department will send the research findings to the relevant human rights authorities which are documenting Israeli war crimes in the territory.


As I have said many times before, the UN and Goldstone Report is an absolute sham and did not cover such weapons even though I personally submitted my own evidence to the UN in Geneva. There is a huge cover-up by UN, UNEP, UNDP, UNRWA, WHO, US Government, Israeli Government and many more too numerous to mention. The fact that the UN has gone ahead in removing contaminated rubble from bombed/missiled building and is crushing it to surface roads and streets in Gaza Strip is a crime beyond imagination and not in line with UN’s own instructions when dealing with possible radioactive materials. To add to the problem, a US charity is recycling the material in Gaza to repair/renovate schools and kindergartens!


A four-member international mission including international expert on sustainable development and use of prohibited weapons, Jean Francois Feacheno, and experts from the UN Environment Program (UNEP), travelled to the Gaza Strip in April 2009 under the auspices of the Arab Committee for Human Rights. It found:


-        The specialist laboratory used analysis of soil and dust samples from their mission to the Gaza Strip and found the elements of depleted uranium, a radioactive material, causing cancer and deformities.

-        The analysis also showed the presence of particles of the cesium, a radioactive and carcinogenic dust which includes asbestos, a carcinogenic, in addition to volatile organic compounds and fine particles that pose health risks, especially children's health, those living with asthma and the elderly.

-        Also found in the samples was phosphate resulting from the oxidation of white phosphorus and tungsten material carcinogens, in addition to copper and aluminum oxide, a carcinogenic and radioactive thorium oxide material.


I would add that much of the above constitutes as coming from the nuclear industry and thus forms part of mini nukes (US call them conventional weapons). It is interesting to note that DU rounds were found in Gaza from the Israeli Apache Helicopter.


I call this scenario “The Deadly Link” – American, UK and EU Imperialism – Terrorism – Poverty... Western Governments are increasing poverty on a scale never experienced on this planet and all out of greed for natural resources or the need to control them. The New World Order does exist and we now know who forms this group of elite evil monsters.
