America Used UN Veto to Protect Israeli War Crimes – 24 Times! (tags)
Since the sixties, Israeli Jews have ruthlessly raped, butchered and murdered their way through large chunks of Palestine and the Lebanon; have acquired thousands of weapons of mass destruction, and openly shown their utter contempt for international law, by openly bragging about the “New Israel” planned to stretch eastwards to the Euphrates and thus encompass Iraq’s oilfields. Because of immunity from international prosecution afforded by perpetual American vetos at the United Nations Security Council, Israeli Jewish terrorists have become emboldened in their attacks, to the point where their excesses have sickened most of the civilized world.

The terrible imbalance of power between the Israelis and Palestinians makes it impossible for Israel, regardless of which government is in power, to deal with the Palestinians in any way except through a lens of assumed moral, cultural, and racial superiority, as though military prowess equates with civilization and home-made rockets equate with savagery and a sub-human status.

Getting the word out on NPR (tags)
Getting the word out has always been difficult for Palestinians. The major reason for this is that Israel often succeeds in framing the issues from its point of view, and the mainstream media in the West goes along with it. A favorite gambit that Israel uses to cloak its outrageous policies towards the Palestinian population is to cry "security", which then pretty much allows it to do anything. When "security" is too conspicuously untrue, it justifies itself by referring to its own policy. This can be questioned only through its own legal system, which is not exactly designed to safeguard Palestinian rights. It sets up the equation of "lawful" Israelis and "unlawful" or criminal Palestinians.

About one-third of its land was confiscated for the 7,000 Israeli settlers living there (and their defense array), while over a million Palestinians are crowded in the remaining areas of the prison. Now Israel is considering the imprisonment there of families of suicide bombers from the West Bank.
