Israel Fires on Unarmed Demonstrators in Gaza- Third Intifada is On

The people of the world not in a complete coma are rising, and it all heads to Palestine. There will be justice in Palestine!

Salem-News.com

(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.

Ken O'Keefe in Gaza.

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.

This is a very one sided article. Starting with how the Palestinians "lost" their homeland. The historical fact is that the Arab nations told all arab living in Israel to pull out so they could roll in and flatten all Jewish resistance. The local Arabs in Israel pulled out as requested to the camps the arab nations had set up for them to be temporarily and the Arab nations lost the battle. Then the losers couldn't come home. Those Arabs who stayed were offered protection and citizenship. Those Jews who had nowhere else to go because everything had been taken from them in WWII, then came because Europe shipped them to Israel, so they didn't have to face their own guilt (ever hear of sending the slaves back to Africa? Uh, Liberia, anyone? Years later, when Israel offered to returned captured areas to Syria/Lebanon, these countries wouldn't negotiate for the return of their land because to negotiate would be to acknowledge Israels right to negotiote. So, Israel kept the territory because no one would take it back. When they finally gave it to the PA and you can see how they have managed things. The West Bank had a growing economy before the PA took over and now it is in shambles. Read "Once an Arafat Man" written by an ex-PLO fighter. Look up the original historical documents, it is all there.

Editor: Once again, this is pure fiction.  All reading this, remember that Israelis will say absolutely anything to counter the truth: Don't pay attention because the program to falsely boost Israeli is called 'hasbara' and Erin is doing their bidding.  The truth is that American tax dollars are used to silence a population of natural resistance.  This video, Occupation 101, features lays out the history of Palestine and Israel in factual terms, all backed up:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWpOqAitZLs Arab people lived in peace with Jewish people who were a minority then.  Nobody wants death, but Israel's goals are afoul of humanity and no decent people accept Genocide.

Well when your EDITOR's best comeback is "Is that the best you can come up with"... dont expect unbiased and professional from the field. LOL!


Supporter May 16, 2011 1:46 am (Pacific time)

Ken O'Keefe rocks, this guy is absolutely too much and it is no wonder things are changing. We need about ten guys like him and it would already be over.

It isnt biased at all you uneducated douche. Its a known fact, look at google maps ffs and compare it to a map from 1940, they are opressed and being murdered and thrown out of their homeland, it is being ignored (purposely) by mainstream media. If you think that this side of the story is biased, then you only represent the 50% of the North American population who suffer from severe retardation. I assume you are from the states because you think this article is biased.

"Years of non-violent Resistance" My eye! Israel has been under constant violent attack for decades, from within and without. Rockets are being fired daily at Israel from Gaza. Your article is yellow journalism, trash!

Tim King: Yes, years and years.  Sad for you that we have hundreds of images, first-hand accounts and video to prove exactly what we say.  That is why Zionists will lose this one.  David became Goliath and you know how that story ends right?  


Azedah May 15, 2011 11:38 pm (Pacific time)

Nice movie the actors were a bit overacting!

Editor: Don't we all wish it was acting.  Is that the best you can come up with?  Sounds like you are low on gas.

When World War Two broke out, American correspondents covered the action from the allied side, without a question of whether the Nazi oppressors were getting a balanced representation. When a government practices any level of state terrorism, and Israel is the mot profound example, then the only side of decency is the side of resistance. How does one report in a balanced way about Genocide? It doesn't happen.
