GUEST,ifor BS: Israel Moves in. (1634* d) RE: BS: Israel Moves in. 18 Jan 09


To Teribus,    Re Israeli Self Defence
The Israeli Defence Force is a much misnamed military machine.

Far from being a self defence force it has waged aggressive wars against its neighbouring populations since the state of Israel was founded on stolen land in 1948.Indeed it specialises in the ethnic cleansing [the Israelis called it "transfer"] of the Palestinians from their homes,farms,towns and villages.

Spare me the cod zionist apologies and the cod zionist history !

Today Egyptian doctors have reported that they are horrified at the amount and the extent of severe head injuries suffered by numerous Palestinian children at the hands of Israeli troops.The children have been hit in the head by high velocity rounds.This killing spree had nothing to do with self defence and everything to do with mass murder which is still a war crime!

And lets be clear that Israel has one of the most powerful armies in the world and it gets much of its modern state of the art weaponry including those F16 warplanes from the USA.

How encouraging it was to learn that an attempt by the US to resupply Israel with bombs last week from a US base in Greece was prevented by protests from Greek workers!

Israel is a strategic asset of the USA . According to Steven Zunes an American scholar:


"An Israel in a constant state of war-technologically sophisticated and militarily advance ,yet lacking an independent economy and dependent on the Unitedd States -is far more willing to perform tasks unacceptable to other allies than an Israel at peace with its neighbours .As former secretary of state Henry Kissinger once put it,in reference to Israel's reluctance to make peace,"Israel's obstinacy ...serves the purpose of both our countries best".

Israel is like an attack dog slobbering to get off the leash and last week it did.But it had nothing to do with self defence and everything to do with elections in Israel and the need to reassert itself against the Palestinians after the setback it suffered two years ago in the hills of Lebanon.
