Israel Fires on Unarmed Demonstrators in Gaza- Third Intifada is OnVideo by Ken O'Keefe Story by Tim King Salem-News.com
The people of the world not in a complete coma are rising, and it all heads to Palestine. There will be justice in Palestine!
(GAZA / SALEM) - There is bravery in the world today. After 63 years of occupation and oppression from Israel, the people of Palestine have had enough.
The Third Intifada launched as scheduled today and the bullets were flying, people were falling, being carried by their brothers to waiting ambulances.
The years of non-violent resistance have brought these people very little. Indeed, the Second Intifada led to many Israeli casualties. But it wasn't just the occupiers and invaders who died. The decision to invade Palestinian strongholds like Jenin led to the waste of young men who bravely fought for their embattled, historic Palestine.
Considering the way Israeli soldiers are conditioned to wantonly slaughter Palestinian women and tiny children, it is no wonder that the new effort has been launched with a degree of dedication that many could never comprehend.
It's a new kind of war today. Very different from past conflicts, this is one born at Tahrir Square in Cairo, and in the streets of the Algeria, Tunisia, Syria and other countries.
It's a war where only one side needs guns, and only one side takes lives. It becomes a war of guns versus public opinion. The video camera and YouTube keep this in front of people, even though the news networks deny it by ignoring it.
This is primarily an American phenomenon; people in other parts of the world that do not have themselves crammed up Israel's rear side do not hesitate to talk about Palestine in the news. They also disclose information relating to Israel's war crimes that are as horrendous as any in history.
Today Israel is creating Martyrs in Palestine and they absolutely do not have enough bullets to stop it, and that is a fact. People are tired of this, they are sick of Israel getting away with Murder.
There are no excuses for shooting unarmed people.
This video Ken shot shows the courage of the human race at full tilt. All these protesters want is to have their very own land that has been stolen from them. They want to be able to leave their homes and return with safety and security which they are outwardly denied.
God bless these people and arm them with strength to face the weapons of apartheid and hate.
