RT: Nowhere to hide: Israeli bombs ‘rain down’ on defenseless Gaza civilians

Published: 16 November, 2012, 02:36

In heavily populated Gaza scores of civilians have been killed or injured in the latest attacks by Israeli forces. Human rights activists report from its largest hospital that some of the injuries are “consistent with the use of white phosphorous”.

RT spoke with two human rights activists, Adie Mormech and Joe Catron, who have witnessed the mounting civilian casualties at Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza following the first day of Israel’s military operation “Pillar of Defense”.

‘People completely exposed to the fourth most powerful military in the world’

RT: We’re now joined live from embattled Gaza by human rights activist Adie Mormech. Thank you for coming on. Israeli officials are hailing the operation as a “successful series of pinpoint strikes with minimal collateral damage.” Does that sound right to you?

Adie Mormech: I’ve just come back from Shifa hospital, and every single ambulance that comes in every 10 minutes was elderly or children coming into the hospital. I saw a girl arrive early on and she didn’t have a hand, just pulled out of the ambulance. It is the civilians who are the majority of the injured that are coming in to Shifa. We’ve just spent time in the intensive care unit, there was a little girl that arrived, she was just one year old, Hanin Tafish, and she was not showing any signs of life. Her little body was being moved around and then about an hour afterwards we heard that she too had passed away. This was after another airstrike. There are so many children and men and women that are being killed, being injured, and this is a massive, massive crime against a defenseless population. We’ve seen it before during operation Cast Lead, they killed 330 children and 1,400 adults, what’s going to happen now? How on earth have we allowed this to take place again, this kind of carnage is developing, now there’ll be more blood and we know that Israel does not hesitate for one second about killing lots and lots of civilians. These are crimes against humanity and war crimes as the United Nations report exposed in the previous attacks on Gaza.

RT: Russia says Israel is using disproportionate level of force against in its relations with the  Palestinians. But it must also be mentioned there’re two sides to this and both sides are using weapons. What is being done by Hamas to protect civilians? Are people able to reach bomb shelters in time and get the medicine they need?

AM: How on earth can there be any bomb shelters in Gaza, Gaza is one of the most tightly packed places in the world, one of the most crowded places on the planet. How on earth can there be enough bomb shelters? People are completely exposed to the fourth most powerful military in the world. The bombs are raining down on them, it is an attack on a defenseless population, over the half the population are children. There’s 130 injured now and the toll is rising…13 killed, the toll is rising. And we’re expecting more and more, Israel has said it will increase the attacks. There’s a bomb now, just heard it in the background, we’ve just heard the sound of it. Every 10 minutes there’s ambulance arriving… I just think it’s time for everybody to look at this situation!

RT: Hamas has vowed to unleash “hell” on Israel in response – will the movement be able to deliver on its threat?

AM: I think that for now as long as Israel keeps pummelling Gaza and killing so many civilians, so many people, I’d imagine there will be a response from the Hamas government. There’s a continuity to the narrative, that is, forgetting the chronology of this, forgetting the incredibly advanced weaponry that is being unleashed on Palestinian civilians and forgetting the entire context, the fact that Palestinians have been living under siege for five years, not giving them any chance of development. Many people have died from not having access to medical [help] abroad. And it’s really time everybody stood up and said what Desmond Tutu said, that this is worse than apartheid in South Africa. And take to the streets, mobilize, because if the governments are going to typically buy the party line in this disease of supporting Israel no matter what, despite the horrific carnage I’m seeing everywhere – if you would dare come and look at the hospital, and meet the families that are now weeping every morning for that loss of life, you would see yourself that this is despicable. And you can see the numbers, the value of Palestinian life versus an Israeli life as it is presented in the West, because the casualties are so much higher on the Palestinian side. Let alone the collective punishment, which is against the Geneva Convention’s article 33, of the entire population, most of whom are children. It’s an absolutely obscene, disgraceful attack on a civilian population, and there’re so many people who are losing their lives. And the whole take, and the true scenes of tragedy should send messages to the rest of the world to say if governments don’t do anything, the people have to take to the streets, the people have to isolate and boycott Israel, the people have to say “no more, no more” until finally the governments listen.

    Hi Edwin, I just wanted to say that I read your your initial comment and don’t get the reaction to it. I did not sense you were ‘going after’ any one particular person or group regarding channeled info. I interpreted your message as one of being frustrated and disappointed by being fed continual channeled messages of hope that help is coming ‘soon’, to never materialize. Which, in my opinion, leads to complacency amongst people, expecting others to save them instead of taking action and doing the work themselves. Anyway, just wanted to give you a shout out of support and say I ‘think’ I get what you were saying. Just shows how different people interpret words, especially during a Mercury retrograde period. Hope this comment does not offend anyone -that is not my intention.

  3. Edwin says:

    Also, I have had several UFO experiences. So the ET reality is not an issue for me. The issue is the accuracy… or rather lack of any… with the channeled materials. Again my apologies… for upsetting you.

    • Jean says:

      Drunvalo, whom I often use as a yardstick, says that less than 1% of channeled messages have an accuracy. Hugs, ~Jean

      • Edwin says:

        Even so Jean… It is probably best that I retire from commenting.

        As I did not personally go after anyone here. I had nothing negative to say about anyone… especially of a personal nature.

        Yet, if you look at what is said to me… the words are a condemnation of a personal nature.
        I am called arrogant, ill-informed… and said to be conveying pure ‘noise’.

        I am told directly… with an intent on insulting me personally… that it would be best if I hold my breath and my tongue. To hold my fingers off the computer. I am told that there is meanness in my meaning. And that I am laughing and mocking at them

        I am told this by someone that I said nothing to. I directed no ill will at them.
        And yet they feel that their reply was justified.

        How very sad that is?

        • Jean says:

          I”m sorry you don’t see how offensive your word were, Edwin. You clearly implied that you had it right and left no room for the opinions of others. This is why I suggested you consider your words carefully. . . if you didn’t mean that, then it seems to me that you obviously weren’t really thinking about what you said. What you choose, however, to do about this that your words created is your choice. Hugs, ~Jean

          • Edwin says:

            In that my words were not directed personally at anyone… and that I did not directly… personally insult anyone.
            That…you feel as you do… that it is proper to personally insult someone in that manner… says much of you. I would be ashamed.

            Personal attacks are seldom ever warranted… unless one is personally attacked.

        • Roberto says:

          Dear Edwin,

          Perhaps you do not mean what you say, but then again it may be well to examine what you say before you send it. If you write in a challenging manner, it comes across that way. YOu wrote as a smart ass and I replied in a smart ass manner. I have seen several disinfo artists try to take over this blog and that’s not a very nice thing to do. If you don’t recognize that you’re being mean, perhaps you need to read about narcissism – “Why Is It Always About You?” is a good one. It explains how we get that way.

          If you get negative reactions to what you wrote, perhaps you need to become aware that that is the way you are coming across. These are not a mean bunch of people on this blog, although there have also been a few of those. But we can disagree with each other without being mean and insulting or poking fun or being facetious. If you have a chip on your shoulder, and want to challenge another’s opinion, it will show. And there will be somebody to knock it off. If you have an axe to grind and it grinds someone else on the wrong nerve you will find out. If you are a know-it-all, that will come out. If you insult, you will probably be answered with an insult.

          This is like any disfunctional family, there are all kinds. EVErybody who comes here has some issues of one kind or another. We all understand that, because we’ll all doing our best to confront and handle our stuff. That’s probably a good way to describe the modus operandi of this blog.
          Jean is a very kind person who likes friendliness and compassion towards others on her blog.

          It’s her blog so she gets to set the rules. If we don’t like them we can go blog somewhere else.

          So why don’t we start again from the beginning..

          Hi Edwin, I’m Roberto, and like you, I’ve been around the block a few times and perhaps gotten a bit cantankerous in my third childhood, so if I pop off at you and you feel victimized you can call me on it. Ordinarily I am kind and considerate of others, but am inclined to speak up, if I see that one of my pet peeves is being stomped on. I am usually quick to see the error of my ways, but not always. If I see that our playing field is being polluted (in my opinion and it is JUST an opinion) then I could speak up. We each have our own routes to heaven or wherever you’re going, 3rd, 4th, 5th dimension, etc., we’re all going in our own ways. So If I have handled you in too rough a fashion that is unfortunate. I am not sorry, but I just ask that the slate be wiped clean and remove all intentional harm or damage from your force field.
          Obviously something there to learn for both of us. May our next interactions be blessed with more harmony.
          Ciaou!

    Edwin,

    Perhaps it were best if you did hold your breath and your tongue, and while you are at it please hold your fingers off the computer, as well. The meanness in your meaning will not be missed!

    I did not cut my teeth on channeled material. I had my own ET experience. Laugh and mock all you want, your time has run out.

    • Edwin says:

      Sorry Roberto… the words were not directed at you.
      I was just commenting on the whole situation.

      I… once again have not made myself clear.
      And I cut my teeth on channeled material as well. So I include myself therein.

      No meanness intended… and no disrespect either.

  5. Edwin says:

    I guess we will “soon” see if the off worlders are going to prevent this war. They have said repeatedly that they will not allow another war to be fought.

    Wonder what excuse will be used when they do not step up and stop the carnage. Probably… that it has to be a nuclear war before they can intervene… how convenient.

    A large majority, more than most realize… of the shared and now seemingly accepted information about the ET’s and Ascension… ultimately has its roots in channeled material.

    It seems that most of the leaders of the “movement” cut their teeth on some sort of channeled sources… back in the beginning. And even though many have distanced themselves from the material by this time… they seem to have retained the parts of it that “resonated” with them.

    The reality though… is that all of the predictions, the containment, the mass arrests etc. have so far… been a big hot air fest. Nothing solid anywhere.

    That could change… but, I’ll not be holding my breath.

    • Jean says:

      Edwin, you are very ill-informed, yet you speak with authority! Imagine! It took me a long time to figure out that arrogance like yours is based on a huge amount of total ignorance. You need to study more, to do careful research! ETs will not stop the carnage. That is not their job. It is our job! The only thing they are permitted to do is to keep us from destroying the planet, which we are very close to doing through the use of atom bombs. Their efforts in this regard have little to do with us, and everything to do with the energetic effects of a destroyed planet earth from atomic bomb throughout our Universe. Such effects would be devastating! THAT is the reason they are permitted to stop atomic warfare. They started coming here back when we began playing around with atom bombs, because the use of fission as an explosive, rather than fusion, is against galactic law.

      The information about ETS is NOT rooted in channeling, my friend! This is pure ‘noise’ on your part. Also, please do not return here unless you come with a lot more humility than you have thus far shown. Do the work, Edwin, before you open your mouth! Hugs, ~Jean

      The Report on
      Unidentified Flying Objects

      A must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about Projects Grudge, Sign and Blue Book.

      This historical document reads like science fiction but it isn’t and what makes it so brilliant and valuable is that it was authored by a man who was there in the very beginning of the UFO phenomena.

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaEdward J. Ruppelt (July 17, 1923 in Iowa – September 15, 1960) was a United States Air Force officer probably best-known for his involvement in Project Blue Book, a formal governmental study of unidentified flying objects. He is generally credited with coining the term “unidentified flying object”, (UFO) to replace the terms “flying saucer” and “flying disk”.

      Ruppelt was the director of the little known Project Grudge from late 1951 until it became Project Blue Book in March 1952; he remained with Blue Book until late 1953. UFO researcher Jerome Clark writes, “Most observers of Blue Book agree that the Ruppelt years comprised the project’s golden age, when investigations were most capably directed and conducted.

      • Edwin says:

        Ok… if you say so. My issue is only with the channeled material that I spoke of. What I said depicts that… and that only. Why would you think that I meant all information about all ET’s? I was just referring to the channeled information of the last few years. Wow! I guess I do need to stop commenting… as I seem to be pitiful at making the point I intent to make. I will do as asked and not comment anymore. Sorry folks.

        • Jean says:

          Edwin, if you really are not here trying to make trouble, then i suggest like all of us who have had lessons to learn that instead of not commenting, you take time to reflect on your words before putting them out there. Perhaps you have not had much experience before; so many of us were denied so much – and I include myself here, and this is an opportunity to fill in those gaps and to learn. Read, and watch how people express themselves. . . you’re capable of figuring it out, I’m sure. . . You really came across badly, you know. . . but that doesn’t mean that will always be so. It’s a time to learn, and one lesson we all seem to have a hard time learning after we have stumbled and fallen is that the world and the people in it are all very forgiving. We’ve all been there, Edwin, in one way or another! Hugs, ~Jean
