Watching the video as the one above, produced by international witnesses, showing unarmed Palestinian farmers and foreign civilians being repeatedly fired upon, without provocation, in an open field, makes me livid. This kind of terrorism cannot be justified. This is not response. This is not defense. This is pure, unmitigated terrorism. All of the old Israeli propaganda lines abundantly expired when their latest criminal assault began on Dec. 27, 2008, and you can now find them, at bargain basement prices, at the Hasbara Surplus Store otherwise known as Twitter.
There it is, documented, from this past Thursday, Feb. 5, 2009. Now watch it get ignored by all the “right thinking” citizens, the “impartial” BBC, and the usual assortment of despicable mother fucking cunts.
Please tell me once again that condemning this outrage is “anti-semitism” (because the anti-semitic denial of genocide is acceptable only if aimed at Palestinians). Please continue, like cowards and criminals, to protest the clinical observation that Zionism is racism, that Zionists and Nazis have become indistinguishable. Continue making your case for your “right to exist,” when this is how you manifest your existence. Bigots, cowards, racists, and terrorists — you are welcome to post your comments here, so I can mount your material as an ethnographic freak show in tribute to state terrorism…except that on this issue, this video, I expect you to suddenly go silent.
Thanks to the invaluable work of courageous volunteers for the International Solidarity Movement for bringing this to the attention of those are willing to even just look at reality.
From Israeli forces open fire on Palestinian farmers and internationals in Al Faraheen, Friday, February 6, 2009:
The soldiers continued to shoot on the group, despite the fact that many members of the group had their arms in the air and were wearing fluorescent vests to make them highly visible, and identify them as Human Rights Workers; had erected a banner indicating that the farmers and accompaniment were civilians; contact had been made with the Israeli army to advise them that Palestinian civilians and internationals would be working in the area; the various international embassies had been advised of the planned accompaniment; and the internationals were announcing their presence via a megaphone – demanding that the soldiers stop shooting on unarmed civilians.
“We are unarmed civilians! We are farmers and international Human Rights Workers! Stop Shooting!”
Thanks also to karmalised for drawing my attention to this atrocity.
