“And the mass murder in Gaza is already on its way to oblivion (in the press). They wanted to remind the world that they are buried alive in the grave of Gaza, and now they are dead. The people of Gaza have been locked up there for 70 years; the last 12 years were the worst, as the Gaza Strip has been under siege by Israel since they voted for Hamas. Gaza is almost unliveable, as Israel has bombed its power station, its sewage plants, its harbour and airfield. They can’t even fish, as Israeli boats machinegun the fishing boats.” – Israel Shamir, “The Messiah is here” – The Unz Review, May 20th, 2018.

“Licences issued to UK defence contractors exporting to Israel last year include those for targeting equipment, small arms ammunition, missiles, weapon sights and sniper rifles.” (emphasis added) – Jamie Doward, “British arms exports to Israel reach record level” – The Guardian, May 27th, 2018.

“…you don’t show up to somebody’s home, needing a place to stay, and decide that you’re going to throw them out and hurt the people who are on that land. And to kill, steal, and do whatever it is you’re gonna do to take that land! That to me is unfair. It’s a human rights crime.” – Tamika Mallory , quoted by Jeff Dunetz in “Women’s March founder Tamika Mallory: Israel’s creation a human rights crime” – The Lid, June 3rd, 2018.

“It does not take a genius to figure out that the United States is deeply involved in a series of seemingly endless wars pitting it against predominantly Muslim nations even though Washington has no vital interests at stake in places like Syria, Libya and Iraq. Who is driving the process and benefiting? Israel is clearly the intended beneficiary of a coordinated effort mounted by more than 600 Jewish organizations in the U.S. that have at least as part of their programs the promotion and protection of Israel.” – Philip Giraldi, “Understanding Jewish Power” – The Unz Review, June 12th, 2018. (This is an excellent and informative article, you can read it here.)

“Canary Mission (is) an anonymously run, right-wing website that compiles dossiers on activists who organize for Palestinian human rights on U.S. college campuses, claiming – without evidence – that the students have ties to terrorism in an effort to make them unemployable… That the FBI is relying on information from the likes of Canary Mission creates even more cause for concern, because it signals that federal law enforcement is relying on unvetted blacklists designed to shut down criticism of Israel and smear students voicing pro-Palestinian political opinions.” – Alex Kane, “The FBI is using unvetted, right-wing blacklists to question activists about their support for Palestine” – The Intercept, June 24th, 2018. (The use of the term “right wing” is rather disturbing, it is usually bestowed on people who oppose Israeli human rights infractions, not on those who inflict them… -JG).
