Well it’s been over a month now since I’ve been unable to update the site or this blog. The break was brought about by personal domestic difficulties that have now been resolved.

Me and Dilzyghirl are back on again! Well were talking about it…

Anyway, a lot’s happened since and I s’pose a wee word or two might be appropriate.

Lebanon

Hezbollah decided it might be a fun idea to do a raid on Israel and capture a couple of Israeli soldiers. Eight of them were killed in the raid. What they were thinking is anyone’s guess but some have said they were testing the metal of the new Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Now they know. He has none. If he had any he would have announced the withdrawal of Israeli soldiers from Gaza, released all Palestinian prisoners, apologised to the Palestinian people and handed over interim government to Hamas.

Well that’s the fairytale out the window. Israel must be held to account for this shite. Pre 11/9/01 they wouldn’t have done this. But really, at the end of the day, which supposedly “free” world government would be allowed to get away with this shit. OK there’s America. Britain has been known to get away with this kind of ethnic cleansing in the past but has since given up. No other country would be able to bully a neighbouring country in such a way, over so many years, to such an extent. If any other country in the middle east was to behave the way Israel has over the last 60 years, they wouldn’t have lasted a couple of years. Why is this so? Holocaust guilt, that’s why. Well don’t blame us for the Holocaust and don’t try and tell us you are just fightingterrorism. That doesn’t wash. Israel was founded on terrorism. Zionist terrorism led the way 60 years ago and they got what they wanted. Why shouldn’t Palestinians or Lebanese think they can do the same?

“July 2, 1946: The King David Hotel in Jerusalem was bombed, killing 91 people.

Menachem Begin, who was later awarded the Nobel Prize for peace, is the same man who planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish terrorist gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical “Stern Gang,” which committed many vicious atrocities.

Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that “it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets.” The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. “

There’s more of course, you find some here.

It seems the Israelis are preparing for a ground offensive which will involve incursions into Lebanon. This is the start of an occupation. I hope I’m wrong but I reckon the Israelis will push their luck as far as possible here and keep going until they are checked. The ultimate aim of course is complete domination of the region.

Every one of us has a duty to withdraw our support from this organisation. When we go into supermarkets or where ever to buy our fruit and veg or indeed any other goods, we should check closely for country of origin. This includes clothes, electrical equipment or any other product. If they are Israeli or US in origin, they should not be bought. I know it’s difficult with regard to the US but where possible, everyone should knock back those goods. There are other alternatives like fair trade and suchlike. I know most people are just glad to be getting the shopping done without mishap but it might be worth the effort if you feel strongly enough about the issue.
