Elefanter i rummet

Diverse — Drokles on August 20, 2014 at 4:42 am

Hver dag konfronteres man med politikere og journalister der taler omkring virkelige problemer uden at nævne dem med et ord. Som den engelske formand for the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg, der forleden hævdede at man ville ophidse moderate muslimer, hvis man underviste i engelske værdier i skolen. Ikke et ord om at muslimer selv i deres moderate repræsentation i så fald stod i en fjendtlig modsætning til England og dets liberale og nationale værdier. At englænderne ikke kan være englændere i deres eget land. Ja, end ikke en refleksion over hvad islam egentlig er når man har en betegnelse som moderate muslimer.

Måske var det ikke en elefant i rummet da den engelske premierminister David Cameron i sine bizarre lykønskninger til muslimerne som de gik i gang med ramadanen nævnte deres uvurderlige bidrag til friheden, som de gjorde ved i tusindvis at tjene som soldater for det britiske imperium under 1. Verdenskrig. Som bekendt var briterne og de allierede i krig med selveste det muslimske kalifat Osmannerriget. Men det var svært at overse  diskriminationsforsker Mira Skadegaard Thorsens elefant fra en kronik i Politiken. Her harcelerede hun over den strukturelle daglige diskrimination og her er præsentationen af indvandrere særligt vigtig: ”Ind i mellem ses ’solstrålehistorier’ som alene opnår nyhedsværdi, fordi de er med til at bekræfte den gældende negative norm; de fungerer som undtagelser.” Ikke et ord om virkeligheden.

Så meget har man mistet sansen for ordenes betydning at Jyllands-Posten føler det helt logisk i en overskrift at påstå at “Danskere hylder rabiat bevægelse på sociale medier“. Den rabiate bevægelse er den muslimske ISIS, der hæger rundt i Irak og Syrien for tiden. Danskerne er muslimer med dansk pas. ISIS er sunni muslimer og myrder løs på ikke-muslimer for ikke at være muslimer og på shiamuslimer for ikke at være rigtige muslimer. Det er en muslimsk debat der har raset i mere end 1.300 år og nu igen truer den for alvor med at bryde ud i et større opgør. Men mens alle alarmer blinker viderebringer medierne de glade håbe om at “Stormoske i København forener trosretninger” og fremfører imamens ord som var det noget værd

- I vores hellige koran er det nævnt sort på hvidt, at vi skal samarbejde og især med de kristne, som også er bogens folk, også jøder som også er bogens folk, som har hellige skrifter fra Gud. Vi har mange fællesskaber.

Hver gang en journalist hører nogen udtale sig om begrænsede mængder burde spørgsmålet “hvad med resten?” komme som skidt fra en spædekalv. Så mester, hvad med de der ikke er Bogens Folk? Her er vi henvist for vores licenspenge til selv at grave i muslimernes hellige skrifter og kan i koranen læse

Sura 9 (Omvendelse) vers 29: Bekæmp dem, som ikke tror på Allah og den yderste dag, og som ikke forbyder, hvad Allah og Hans udsending forbyder; og blandt dem, der har fået Skriften, skal I bekæmpe dem, der ikke bekender sig til den sande religion, indtil de kuet er rede til at betale skat!

Nogle gange stikker virkeligheden dog hovedet frem så ingen kan undgå at påtale det som da talsmanden for den nye stormoske i København udtalte sig negativt om homoseksuelle. Homoseksuelle er de godes darling for tiden, symbolet på europas frisind og så gør det mindre at moskeen, muslimsk som den er, også går ind for dødsstraf for apostasi. Ej heller påtalte nogle af de gode kvinder kønsopdelingen, hvor kvinderne er henvist til en afskærmet afdeling.

BT fik, hvad de kaldte “en velintegreret pakistaner” til at oversætte en imam ved en anden moske

For øjnene af 500-600 troende muslimer samlet til fredagsbøn i Islamisk Kulturcenter på Horsebakken i København, gik deres åndelige overhoved, imamen Farouk Sultan, amok i en rus af trusler om mord, bål og brand. Målet for imamens religiøse raseri var den herboende redaktør af den dansk-pakistanske avis Lahore, Mohammed Hanif Chaudry fra Søborg. Imam Farouk Sultans besked til Chaudry var klar og tydelig: Chaudry er en “kætter, en forfører og Satan selv”. Bed om tilgivelse eller risikér at blive dræbt og brændt foran forsamlingen. Samtidig opfordrede imamen under bønnen forrige fredag sin menighed til at brænde og boykotte avisen, og for at lægge vægt bag sine ord lod imamen sine ophidsede tilhængere afbrænde eksemplarer af Lahore foran forsamlingen. Det var som scener fra “fatwaen” mod den dødsdømte forfatter Salman Rushdie. To dage senere, sidste søndag, blev de samme dødstrusler udspredt i radioprogrammet, Aap ki Awaz, der sendte en båndoptagelse fra moskeen. Programmet hører under urdu-redaktionen på Radio Storkøbenhavn, der ejes af LO.

Såeh, hvad med menigheden? Hvorledes reagerede de? Og hvad kan man dog tolke, om noget overhovedet, ud af at radioprogrammet Aap ki Awaz sendte en båndoptagelse fra moskeen to dage senere? For det er historien om en imam og ikke historien om den voksende minoritet af muslimer der underminerer vores samfund.

Den historie får man bagvendt når man i Jyllands-Posten kan læse Rune Selsing skrive “Palæstinenserne udgør en stemme i debatten, som er umulig at ignorere” i et ellers forrygende indlæg. Selsings politikenske parafrase fanger ufrivilligt at palæstinenserne, som alle muslimer, ikke er demokrater men stemmer en bloc, på hvad der gavner islams og palæstinensernes sag. Ingen deling efter overbevisning thi islam tåler ingen deling.

Og netop dyrkelsen af palæstinensersagen bringer antisemitismen frem i lyset. Den konservative Rasmus Jarlov proklamnerede en kalotmarch med udgangspunkt i en muslimbelastet del i København efter en journalist iført kalot havde følt sig truet. Medlem af Nørrebro Lokaludvalg  Uzma Ahmed Andresen advarede på sin egen bagvendte måde mod den multietniske kruttønde således ifølge Danmarks Radio

- Jeg frygter, at demonstrationen er en konfliktoptrapning, og at der er nogle enkeltpersoner, der reagerer på den provokation, der ligger i det, og at det kommer til at tegne et billede af, at Nørrebro er et sted, der er i oprør, siger hun.

Efterfølgende var Uzma Ahmed Andresen ifølge Modkraftmeget lettet” “over, at arrangementet forløb uden problemer“. Den 90 år gamle jøde Svend Allan Horwitz mente i Berlingske Tidende ligeledes at en kalot march vil være at “hælde benzin på bålet” samtidig med at han benægter at der nogensinde havde eksisteret et bål, med denne forrygende sætning

“Jeg har aldrig i mit liv oplevet antisemitisme. Heller ikke dengang i 1943, da mine danske landsmænd hjalp mig til Sverige.”

Og som om det ikke var nok, så leverede hr Horwitz endnu et pragteksemplar

Og pludselig, efter vi har brugt så mange år på at få religionen ud af de offentlige rum, bliver en hovedbeklædning gjort til et vigtigt og stort problem

Men ingen kan skyde sig selv i foden som ‘nydanskere’, som man kunne se et forrygende eksempel på i BT

- De siger, de vil have indvandrere i politiet, men jeg tror dem ikke. Hvis det virkelig var tilfældet, måtte de acceptere små ting i straffeattesten, for jeg kender ikke mange indvandrere, som ikke har lavet et eller andet galt på et tidspunkt, siger Rames, der i går blev fyret med 700 andre medarbejdere fra Danish Crown i Grindsted.

Obama og den muslimske forfatning

Arabere, Forbrydelse og straf, Historie, Jihad, Muslimer, Obama, Terror, islam, muhammed — Drokles on August 15, 2014 at 1:33 pm

obama-honors-muslims-ap

Barak Hussein Obama under et billede af Abraham Lincoln, der befriede slaverne, taler for et kønsopdelt publikum i anledning af muslimernes fejring af sejren over de vantro.

Barak Obama udsendte en lykønskning til muslimernes Eid fest, som han mente “celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity”. Førend han hilste muslimerne med et Allahu Akbar fortsatte Obama med et andet opsigtsvækkende udsagn

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.

Den slags vinder Obama 72% af de muslimske vælgere i USA, men det efterlader de fleste andre med et mysterium: Givet USAs historie, hvad kan Obama dog mene? Eksperterne er uenige. Præsident for Den Katolske Liga Dr. Bill Donohue, mener at Hussein tager helt fejl, som han fortalte Conservative Tribune

“Muslims contributed nothing to the foundation of our country. It was mostly not Catholics or Jews, but who were protestant, were white, were male and, as far as I can tell, were heterosexual! Does that mean everyone else is excluded? No, it does not. And it doesn’t mean everyone else is a bad person. But to lie and say that Muslims were the ones who helped found this country- start naming them; start enumerating them. How did we all miss that in history? See, this kind of patronizing thing is a disgrace. [Obama] doesn’t want to be associated with the fact that it was Christians and the Judeo-Christian ethos that contributed to liberty in this country.”

Robert Spencer kommer derimod sin præsident til hjælp og nævner 5 muslimske bidrag til selve materien af USA: En svækket økonomi, Homeland Security, slavehandel, marinesoldater

og så selve opdagelsen af Amerika(erne)

This one predates the United States as a nation, but without it, the United States would not exist. Every schoolchild knows, or used to know, that in 1492 Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue and discovered America while searching for a new, westward sea route to Asia. But why was he searching for a new route to Asia? Because the fall of Constantinople to the Muslims in 1453 closed the trade routes to the East. This was devastating for European tradesmen, who had until then traveled to Asia for spices and other goods by land. Columbus’s voyage was trying to ease the plight of these merchants by bypassing the Muslims altogether and making it possible for Europeans to reach India by sea.

Så tak Allah for USA.

19.999.995 flere huller og så er det hele slut!

Diverse, IPCC, Klima, Pressen, Videnskab — Drokles on August 15, 2014 at 12:16 pm

Jyllands-Posten indleder en artikel om den kommende dommedag med “Det er ikke bare gas, men en alvorlig sag, lyder advarslen fra flere klimaforskere” lige under overskriften “Sibiriske kratere er “Jorden der prutter”

Flere og flere forskere er nu enige om, at de store huller, hvoraf det største vurderes til at være mellem 60 og 70 meter i diameter, er dannet, fordi permafrosten i undergrunden er smeltet. Når permafrosten smelter, udløser den de gasser, der også har været frosset ned i undergrunden. Naturgasserne udløser derpå deres energi op gennem jordskorpen i eksplosioner, der skaber “huller” i overfladen.

ok-krater

Mellem sin fortsatte tale om prutter, citerer artiklen alarmerede forskere: “Environmental Defense Fund kalder undergrunden i Arktis for “en tidsindstillet bombe” for vores klima” og det er “endnu mere alarmerende end asteroidenedslag“. Men skønt man har fundet en håndfuld huller i jorden, så skal man måske alligevel tøve med at gå i panik. Bloggen Real Climate drives af kerneforskerne bag IPCC

Siberia has explosion holes in it that smell like methane, and there are newly found bubbles of methane in the Arctic Ocean. As a result, journalists are contacting me assuming that the Arctic Methane Apocalypse has begun. However, as a climate scientist I remain much more concerned about the fossil fuel industry than I am about Arctic methane. Short answer: It would take about 20,000,000 such eruptions within a few years to generate the standard Arctic Methane Apocalypse that people have been talking about.

Rart at vide at der trods alt er grænser for vanviddet.

Bulldozing the Border Between Iraq and Syria: The Islamic State (Part 5)

5. og sidste del af Vice News serie om kalifatet

On August 8, nearly three years after the United States pulled out of Iraq, President Barack Obama ordered airstrikes to commence on Islamic State positions in northern Iraq, as the group’s fighters advanced towards the Kurdish capital of Erbil. For six weeks prior to the strikes the Islamic State made stunning gains within Iraq, effectively dismantling the border with Syria and defeating the Iraqi army with little in the way to stop them.

In the final installment of VICE News’ unprecedented look inside the Islamic State, reporter Medyan Dairieh journeys 200 miles from the the group’s power base in the Syrian city of Raqqa to the border with Iraq. There, after defeating the Iraqi army manning the checkpoint, Islamic State fighters work further to bulldoze the border.

As they clear apart a barrier that divided Iraq and Syria, Islamic State fighters declare an end of the Sykes-Picot Agreement, a nearly 100-year-old pact between France and Britain that divided up the Middle East. For now, that area between Iraq and Syria is part of a new territory: the Islamic State.

FNs krig mod Israel II

Antisemitisme, Arabere, Diverse, Hamas, Israel, Muslimer, Terror, UNWRA, islam — Drokles on August 13, 2014 at 8:36 pm

Hamas har trygt overladt undervisningen af gazanerne til UNWRA, der med mere en 10.000 ansatte driver 245 skoler for 232.000 elever i sikker tiltro til at deres islamiske budskab nok skal blive indoktrineret. Vi har set, hvorledes 3 af disse FN drevne skoler i Gaza er afsløret i at opbevare Hamas våben, der blev leveret tilbage til, hvad de kaldte de rette myndigheder - altså Hamas. Og vi har set Hamas affyre raketter fra FN skoler og hvorledes en massakre blev fabrikeret på en af disse skoler da IDF straffede et par terrorister, der affyrede raketter mod Israel lige uden for skolen. Det hele som om UNWRA og Hamas er smeltet sammen. Det er i hvert fald Daniel Greenfields påstand på bloggen Sultan Knish, og det er svært at være andet end enig med ham

If an organization consists largely of Hamas members who use it pursue Hamas goals, then the organization is Hamas.

The UNRWA is Hamas.

Hamas use of the UNRWA as its public face is a war crime, but terrorists commit war crimes without a second thought. But the UN and the UNRWA are complicit in the war crime by allowing Hamas to go on exploiting the UN brand. It’s unfortunately commonplace for humanitarian organizations in war zones to collaborate with terrorists and guerrillas in one form or another. But the UNRWA isn’t just paying money to Hamas in exchange for being allowed to operate, the way that many groups in war zones do, it has allowed Hamas to turn its operations in Gaza into an extension of the terrorist group.

Hamas is listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. It’s against the law for the United States to fund it. By funding the UNRWA, the United States is paying Hamas and participating in its war crimes. Using civilian and humanitarian facilities for military purposes is a war crime. Using them to stage attacks against civilians by attackers out of uniform adds further crimes to the total.

The United States provided $130 million to the UNRWA in 2013.The UNRWA’s continued operations in Gaza would not be viable without American funding. Congressional investigations and condemnations have led to nothing. The UNRWA has adopted neutrality policies, but it has refused to put up a firewall between it and Hamas. And it can’t, because it has become an arm of Hamas.

When Kerry visited Gaza in 2009, the UNRWA’s Gaza chief passed along a letter to him from Hamas. The incident showed that not only was the locally recruited staff working for Hamas, but the UNRWA leadership was clearly cooperating with the terrorist group.

The original “refugees” that the UNRWA was set up to cater to are for the most part dead. The UNRWA has become another UN boondoggle funding a welfare state for “refugee camps” that are older, bigger and more developed than many Middle Eastern cities.

Meanwhile the UNRWA has become the public face of Hamas.

UNRWA staff act as terrorists when they use UNRWA facilities for military purposes, but then switch back to UNRWA when Israel fights back. Hamas carries out attacks. The UNRWA demands ceasefires. Hamas uses UNRWA schools and the UNRWA denounces Israel when an attack happens.

Den 23. juli besluttede FNs Mennskerettighedsråd at nedsætte en kommission til at undersøge Israels angivelige krigsforbrydelser. Den 3 mand store kommission skal bestå blandt andre af professor i international lov, forelæser ved Middlesex University og internationalt alment respekteret ekspert i menneskerettigheder, folkemord og dødsstraf Mr William Schabas. Schabas kvalificerede sig givetvis ved for et år siden at udtale at den person han helst så anklaget for krigsforbrydelser var Benjamin Netanyahu. Dette baseret på Goldstonerapporten, FNs smædeskrift mod Israel efter Operation Cast Lead, hvor Netanyahu ikke var premierminister

Christians in the Caliphate: The Islamic State

Fjerde del af Vice News serie om kalifatet

The lightning advances of the Islamic State across Syria and Iraq in June shocked the world. But it’s not just the group’s military victories that have garnered attention — it’s also the pace with which its members have begun to carve out a viable state.

As the soldiers of the Islamic State continue in their effort to build up institutions in the north central Syrian city of Raqqa, the Hisbah, or religious police, are tasked with enforcing a particularly harsh form of Sharia law.

In part 4 of The Islamic State, VICE News visits the Sharia courts where those accused of infractions are sentenced to harsh penalties, including death by crucifixion. But the courts don’t just handle crime. Citizens can bring all manners of complaints, including family disputes, and see the Islamic State’s form of justice doled out.

With unprecedented access, VICE News reporter Medyan Dairieh also visits the section of the court specifically set up for Christians, where the Islamic State discusses its treatment of minorities, and sees a former Armenian Catholic Church that has been converted into an Islamic center.

3. del af Vice News serie om ISIS

The Islamic State now governs its caliphate from the north central Syrian city of Raqqa, which was once a relatively westernized agricultural hub. As the State’s power base, Raqqa is where it imposes its version of Sharia law throughout large swaths of Iraq and Syria.

The “Hisbah” are the new Sharia police. In the latest episode of The Islamic State, VICE News joins them on their daily patrols during Ramadan, and witnesses how they check on shops and scrutinize produce, while at the same time ensuring their strict rules on women’s appearances are adhered to.

We are also taken to an Islamic State prison and speak with inmates accused of abusing drugs and selling alcohol. There we learn firsthand of the prisoners’ punishments, and how they have since “rediscovered” their devotion to the Islamic faith since their incarceration — but are yet to be granted permission to declare their allegiance to the caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

FNs krig mod Israel

Antisemitisme, Arabere, FN, Forbrydelse og straf, Hamas, Historie, Israel, Jihad, Muslimer, Terror, islam — Drokles on August 12, 2014 at 5:04 am

Anne Bayefsky skriver i Jerusalem Post om FNs vedvarende krig mod Israel

On August 6, 2014, the United Nations convened the entire global community for an unusual day-long “informal” session of the General Assembly. The purpose: to demonize the Jewish state and emasculate its right of self-defense.

The UN formula for ravaging Israel by ignoring the criminal actions of its foes – and the foes of the civilized world – is breathtaking.

Not one of the UN speakers – the Secretary-General, the representative of the Office of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Human Rights Commissioner, the UN’s MidEast envoy, the head of UNRWA – even uttered the word “tunnel.”

Israel was denounced for destroying “homes and neighborhoods” and “civilian infrastructure.” But the fact that Israel had destroyed an extraordinary labyrinth of 32 terror tunnels deep underground – running for miles, jam packed with explosives, opening near Israeli towns, and built for the sole purpose of killing Jews – somehow just got left out.

Terror tunnels also did not make it into repeated references to “root causes.” Hamas’ promise to kill Jews and “obliterate” Israel did not count as a root cause of the conflict either. At the UN, “root cause” is reserved for the Israeli “occupation” – that is, the non-existent Jews that have not lived in Gaza for eight years.

Part of the reason that Palestinian hate-speech does not make it on to the UN agenda is that the UN has no definition of terrorism. In UN circles, Hamas is not a terrorist organization, but a welcome member of the Palestinian “unity” government.

(…)

Disturbing evidence of possible UNRWA complicity in Hamas attacks, which warranted a full investigation, was ignored. The facts that UNRWA schools have been used as Hamas rocket storage facilities and that the immediate vicinity of UNRWA schools have been used as staging grounds for Hamas rocket attacks were shrugged off with an implausible “we had no clue,” a de minimis naughty-naughty, or a lecture about overcrowding.

Meanwhile, UNRWA chief Pierre Krähenbühl had the audacity to complain of Israeli actions that inadvertently have damaged its schools: “we cannot comprehend why they occurred.”

Og selvfølgelig kunne Aljazeera også skrive at FN vil have undersøgt Israel for krigsforbrydelser

The United Nations has named experts to an international commission of inquiry into possible human rights violations and war crimes committed by both sides during Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Israel responded to Monday’s announcement, dismissing the inquiry as a UN Human Rights Council “kangaroo court”.

Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesman in Gaza said “Hamas welcomes the decision to form an investigation committee into the war crimes committed by the occupation (Israel) against Gaza and it urges that it begin work as soon as possible.”

The UN statement said the independent team will investigate “all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law … in the context of the military operations conducted since 13 June 2014.”

Men der er ikke megen kød på en sådan anklage, som ekspert i humanitærret Cecilie Hellestveit forklarer Dagsavisen

Hellestveit mener Det israelske forsvaret (IDF) ser ut til å ha «tatt høyde for å redusere sivile tap».

– De har ringt befolkningen i forkant av angrep og har raketter som de skyter mot hus for å advare før angrep. Men det ser også ut til å ha vært misforståelser på bakken, der sivile har misforstått og ikke forlatt husene eller blitt bedt lokalt om å bli værende.

(…)

– Dersom det er oppbevart militært utstyr på sykehusene og de brukes av væpnede aktører, som Hamas, for å skyte ut raketter, mister sykehusene den humanitære beskyttelsen. Vi kan da være i den paradoksale situasjonen at Hamas er krigsforbryteren. Dermed vil palestinerne være både de som lider og de som sitter igjen med ansvaret for krigsforbrytelser. Det er fryktelig urettferdig, men folkerettens system er slik. Man må bevise at Israel med overlegg har angrepet sykehus uten at det har blitt benyttet militært av Hamas. Dersom vi derimot snakker om et moralsk ansvar, har Israel et veldig mye høyere ansvar enn palestinerne for konflikten her, sier Hellestveit.

Derimod er Hamas modus operandi at begå krigsforbrydelser, som Ynet News stille pointerer

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni presented on Thursday a document in Arabic which explicitly instructs terrorists to deliberately fire at the Israeli army from within places where civilians are present, and thus harm its image.

Livni met with the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross and presented him with the guidelines, found in the pocket of a terrorist in Saja’iyya.

The page includes clear-cut instructions on how on the proper conduct during battle in order to cause maximum damage to Israel’s public image, while using innocent civilians as human shields.

Among the recommendations included in the manual, which admits that “the IDF limits the use of ammunition to avoid harming the civilian population,” Hamas officials wrote: “The IDF limits the use of fire against civilian population centers – we recommend to attack from there; shooting from within homes of civilians is in Hamas’ interest because it intensifies the hatred against the Israeli army.”

Ideen er, som palæstinensiske Bassem Eid forklarer i i24 News

Hamas has never considered Palestinian needs – only its own political interests. And so they have continued to fire rockets at Israel, knowing full-well what the result would be: Hamas paved the road for the death of our people. We knew that Hamas was digging the tunnels that would lead to our destruction.

We all know that three people live on every square meter in Gaza, and Hamas knew that any attack by Israel would lead to massive death. But Hamas leaders are more interested in their victories than in the lives of their victims. Indeed, Hamas needs these deaths in order to claim victory. Death of its own people empowers Hamas, enabling it to accrue more money and more arms.

Og FN er, som Bayefsky forklarer medskyldige i Hamas krigsforbrydelser, ikke blot for at opbevare Hamas raketter og lade deres bygninger udgøre dække og for at lyve og propagandere for Hamas, men også for at fragte Hamas krigere rundt fra slagmark til slagmark

Forleden henviste jeg til til historien om Pallywoods fine produktion Massakren ved Rafa. IDF havde bombet nogle terrorister, der skød raketter af udenfor en FN drevet skole. Ligene blev prompte trukket ind på skolens område og et barnelig blev tilsat for ekstra effekt. Og Obama så det og græd og fordømte Israel.

Men flere billeder dukkede op af sundhedspersonale i Gaza, der tilsyneladende forsøger at redde eller genoplive pigen.

Hvis pigen var død allerede da hun blev brugt som model genbruger sundhedspersonalet i endnu et stykke propaganda. Da sundhedspersonalets propaganda negerer gadeaktivisternes er det noget de gør per automatik.´

Omvendt, hvis pigen endnu ikke var død eller, hvis hun lige var død, da hun ankom til hospitalet så kunne hun være reddet, hvis ikke hun skulle bruges til tidkrævende propaganda til ære for en villigt godtroende Obama.

2. del af filmen om Kalifatet.

In Part 2 of VICE News’ exclusive look at the emergence of the Islamic State, filmmaker Medyan Dairieh meets an Islamic State member from Belgium who works to indoctrinate some of the youngest members of the group. He also gains further insight into the minds of Islamic State fighters as they host celebrations and military parades featuring American tanks and APCs seized from the Iraqi army.

The Islamic State, a hardline Sunni jihadist group which formerly had ties to al Qaeda, is now in control of a large swath of territory in Iraq and Syria. The group, which adheres to the strictest form of Sharia law, is determined to establish a caliphate that stretches across the Middle East and into the rest of the Muslim world.

As the Islamic State continues its violent expansion in Syria and Iraq, it is also working to win the hearts and minds of new recruits and potential new members in areas it controls.

Journalistisk antisemitisme

Antisemitisme, Danmarks Radio, Diverse, Israel, Pressen — Drokles on August 9, 2014 at 1:01 am

Leo McKinstry skriver i The Express at der bliver en dyr regning at betale for at have støttet Hamas

This populist anti-Israeli posturing is dangerous. It shows not the slightest grasp of the reality of Islamist aggression in the Middle East and the depth of the challenge that Israel faces.

In practice denouncing the Jewish state means siding with the malevolent, murderous forces of jihadism, a stance that not only represents a complete inversion of morality but a ­suicidal disdain for the interests of western civilisation.

Det er let for journalister at tolke situationen i Mellemøsten. Uanset hvem der gør hvad er det Israels skyld. Hamas brød våbenhvilen (igen) og genoptog deres raket- og morterbombardement af Israel.

Dokumentar om det nyligt oprettede kalifat. Deres fremgang er ikke så overraskende. Kalifatets øverste, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, vinder lokale tilhængere med bloddryppende islamiske citater “a message that clearly resonated among the crowd”.

Fra Washington Post

It’s “worse than al-Qaeda,” Brett McGurk, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran, told lawmakers last month. It “is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a full-blown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.”

Some accounts say it’s no longer seeking to do this — but has already done it.

In the Syrian town of Raqqah, called the Islamic State’s capital, the movement governs with an austere, barbaric but orderly hand. According to this telling New York Times piece, for which a reporter spent six days interviewing residents, crime is rare, traffic cops keep the streets moving and tax collectors are organized. Those accused of theft have also lost hands. It’s a glimpse of what may be coming to the rest of the captured territory, a nation-sized swath of terrain spilling across borders.

But it’s not just the land itself. It’s what the land holds that suggests the true extent of the Islamic State’s power. It “now controls a volume of resources and territory unmatched in the history of extremist organizations,” wrote defense expert Janine Davidson of the Council of Foreign Relations. She added: “Should [the Islamic State] continue this pattern of consolidation and expansion, this terrorist ‘army’ will eventually be able to exert a destabilizing influence far beyond the immediate area.”

The group has a keen eye for resources and cash, which some suspect is the the fulcrum of its continued growth. In addition to stealing and selling ancient relics worth tens of millions and looting hundreds of millions from banks, it has also recently captured a Syrian gas field east of Homs along with other oilfields, killing 23, Reuters reported.

Experts estimate the group is pocketing as much as $3 million per day in oil revenue by selling off resources on black markets in the greater Levant.

Mediefallit

Arabere, Diverse, Hamas, Israel, Muslimer, Pressen, Terror, islam — Drokles on August 7, 2014 at 8:41 am

Hver gang Israel slår igen mod de terrororganisationer, som har svoret at udslette Israel med alle jøderne, adopterer medier og politikere terroristernes løgne helt ukritisk. Hvis palæstinensiske ‘kilder’ taler om massakrer, ja så rapporterer medierne om massakrer og inviterer eksperter til at gætte på, hvor længe Israel og sekundært USA kan holde til verdenssamfundets pres.

Man holder sig ikke i skindet til den gamle sang om at sandheden er det første offer i en krig. Man ser ikke på erfaringer man allerede har fra, hvem der er troværdige og hvem der har det som sit mål at lyve. Man har ingen opfattelse af at den ene part er et retssamfund mens den anden er en terrororganisation. Man ser ikke på modus operandi, at det er israelerne der tager det på sig, hvilket er helt unikt i militærhistorien, at advare fjendens civile, mens Hamas bevidst og ganske stolt praler af at skubbe deres civile foran sig. Ingen historie om at Hamas modus operandi er krigsforbrydelser.

Man stiller ikke Unwra til ansvar for at det er deres ambulancer der bruges til at fragte terrorister rundt til nye positioner, at deres skoler bruges som våbenlagre og deres hospitaler som hovedkvarter. Ingen scoop historie om FN som krigsforbryder. Og man foretager intet research, intet som helst der kunne retfærdiggøre en femmer i mediestøtte.

Douglas Murray undrer sig i Spectator over at journalister i Gaza end ikke oplyser deres publikum om forbehold

I wonder if any readers have an answer to this question: Has anybody, throughout this whole conflict around Gaza, heard any reporter inside Gaza, at any time, preface or conclude their remarks with ‘reporting from Gaza, under Hamas government reporting restrictions’?  I don’t watch television news all the time and so may have missed it, but I don’t think I have heard this said even once.

Which is strange. When reporting from a dictatorship like Gaza it used to be the norm that reporters would preface or conclude any report with some variant of this formula.  Doing so was a neat way to send the warning to viewers that you were reporting from a place where the authorities were censoring what you could say.

Before the 2003 war in Iraq, for instance, reporters broadcasting for television or radio from inside Iraq nearly always made reference to the fact that they were reporting under restrictions imposed on them by Saddam Hussein’s government. This often meant a Hussein goon was standing nearby checking that nothing untoward was said.

Daniel Schwammenthal tilføjer i The Commentator sarkastisk

In many ways, CCTV coverage of the conflict without the networks’ editorial picture selection and emotional but information-lacking voice-overs would probably do a better job at informing the public.

Yes, we would still see the destruction caused by Israeli shelling but the CCTV cameras would also catch Hamas terrorists firing from civilian areas, show how the IDF is dropping leaflets warning civilians ahead of bombings and broadcast how civilians are used as human shields — all important elements of this war usually missing from the coverage.

En del af forklaringen på fordrejningerne finder Schwammenthal i frygt for Hamas

On Tuesday, Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati sent out the following tweet: “Out of #Gaza far from #Hamas retaliation: misfired rocket killed children yday in Shati. Witness: militants rushed and cleared debris.”

Despite the fact that Hamas rockets have a high rate of misfiring and civilians are often caught in the middle of intense urban warfare, every Palestinian civilian casualty is automatically assumed to have been caused by Israel. And so when a strike killed several children in Shati refugee camp, the media rushed to blame Israel even though the IDF said it did not target this site.

Israel’s investigation concluded that a Palestinian rocket fell short, and instead of killing their intended civilian targets in Israel, killed the Palestinian civilians.

Mr. Barbati’s reporting not only supports Israel’s version of the events, it raises a far greater question. Are foreign journalists working under the constant threat from Hamas and thus “self-censoring” themselves? Is this why we don’t see coverage of Hamas terrorists firing rockets from civilian areas, the use of human shields and other war crimes?

Palestinian journalist Radjaa Abou Dagga, for example, wrote an article for French newspaper Libération, published July 23, detailing how Hamas intimidated him, forcing him to leave Gaza, and how Hamas terrorists use a section of Shifa hospital, just a few meters from the emergency room, as their offices, confirm the earlier Washington Post story.

The next day, Mr. Dagga asked Libération to remove his article from their website, apparently out of fear for his family still in Gaza. Other Western journalists have been caught removing Hamas-critical tweets without explanation while others have been prevented by Hamas from leaving Gaza.

Ang proportionalitet

Akademia, Antisemitisme, Arabere, Diverse, Forbrydelse og straf, Hamas, Israel, Muslimer, Pressen, Terror, islam — Drokles on August 7, 2014 at 8:25 am

Der er en besynderlig tendens blandt politikere og journalister til at tale om proportionalitet, hver gang Israel prygler muslimske terrorister til alles bedste. Proportionalitet forstår de gammel testamenteligt, som øje for øje, tand for tand - at Israel kun skal besvare Hamas raketter så langt som disse rent faktisk skader Israel (men ikke gengældt mod palæstinensiske civile, for så er der tale om krigsforbrydelser). Men faktisk ligner proportionalitet i krig mere Chicago metoden, som gamle Sean Connery gør rede for

Gangstere og terrorister forstår kun stokken! Shoshana Bryen uddyber lidt mere fagligt proportionalitetsbegrebet for Gatestone Institute

Finally, Dr. Françoise Hampton, University of Essex (UK) wrote about the concept of “military necessity.”

Military necessity is a legal concept used in international humanitarian law (IHL) as part of the legal justification for attacks on legitimate military targets that may have adverse, even terrible, consequences for civilians and civilian objects. It means that military forces in planning military actions are permitted to take into account the practical requirements of a military situation at any given moment and the imperatives of winning.

What constitutes a military objective will change during the course of a conflict. As some military objectives are destroyed, the enemy will use other installations for the same purpose, thereby making them military objectives and their attack justifiable under military necessity. There is a similarly variable effect on the determination of proportionality. The greater the military advantage anticipated, the larger the amount of collateral damage - often civilian casualties - which will be “justified” or “necessary.

Civilian casualties are much to be mourned, but what becomes clear – absent the propaganda element or a shaky notion of sportsmanship – is that Israel has the right and indeed the obligation to defend its people, has the right to “win” the war of self-defense that it is fighting, and has taken account of the requirements of international law regarding “proportionality” and “military necessity.” This, coupled with the willingness of Israel to accept the Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire, acceptance of a UN-sponsored humanitarian truce, and the continued provision of food, medicine, and electricity to the residents of Gaza, should help erase the “buts” of fair-minded people.

Send them to the morgue!

Tidligere oberst i den engelske hær Richard Kemp, gennemgår i Gatestone Institute antallet og baggrunden for de civile tab i Gaza i kampene mellem de israelske sikkerhedsstyrker og Hamas

Are the “overwhelming majority” of the dead really civilians? It would seem so. We see a great deal of grotesque and heart-rending footage of dead and bleeding women and children but never so much as a glimpse of killed or wounded fighters. Nor do reporters question or comment on the complete absence of Gazan military casualties, an extraordinary phenomenon unique to this conflict. The reality of course is that Hamas make great efforts to segregate their military casualties to preserve the fiction that Israel is killing civilians only. There are also increasing indications that Hamas, through direct force or threat, are preventing journalists from filming their fighters, whether dead or alive.

We will not get to the truth until the battle is over. But we know now that Hamas have ordered their people to report all deaths as innocent civilians. We know too that Hamas has a track record of lying about casualties. After Operation Cast Lead, the 2008-09 fighting in Gaza, the IDF estimated that of 1,166 Palestinian deaths, 709 were fighters. Hamas – backed by several NGOs – claimed that only 49 of its fighters had been killed, the rest were innocent civilians. Much later they were forced to admit that the IDF had been right all along and between 600 and 700 of the casualties had in fact been fighters. But the short-memoried media are incapable of factoring this in before broadcasting their ill-founded and inflammatory assertions.

Analysis of casualty details released by Qatar-based Al Jazeera indicate that so far in the conflict most of those killed in Gaza have been young men of fighting age, not women, children or old people. According to one analyst, despite comprising around 50% of the population, the proportion of women among the dead is 21%.

Preliminary analysis by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center in Israel suggests that 71, or 46.7%, of the first 152 Palestinians killed were fighters and 81, or 53.3%, non-involved civilians.

None of this analysis is definitive. But it does cast doubt upon the accusations of indiscriminate attack against the population by the IDF and upon the UN estimates – widely trumpeted as fact by the media and the not-exactly unbiased United Nations – that between 70 and 80% of Palestinian casualties have been civilians.

Nevertheless, many innocent civilians have tragically been killed. How has this happened, given the IDF’s measures aimed at minimizing such deaths?

IDF commanders say they never intentionally fire at targets where uninvolved civilians are present, a policy that goes much further than the Geneva Conventions demand. This policy has been confirmed to me by foot soldiers on the ground and F16 pilots carrying out strikes into Gaza.

Og Kemp konkluderer omvendt om Hamas

This sickening exploitation of their own people’s suffering, and media’s complicity in it, is nowhere more cynically demonstrated than in the operating theaters of the Gaza Strip. Without the slightest regard for life-saving hygiene, or for the care, privacy or dignity of the wounded, Palestinian officials enthusiastically hustle camera crews in to the emergency room as desperate surgeons battle for a bleeding and broken child’s life.

Hamas and its apologists (…) are weaponizing their dead.” fortæller Ian Tuttle National Review. Døden er nemlig en industri for Hamas og  Time skriver

Hamas, the terrorist group controlling Gaza, endeavors to turn Israel’s military superiority to its own advantage by portraying the Israeli response to intense rocket and mortar fire as disproportionate and indiscriminate. In doing so, it hopes to turn public opinion against the Jewish state, as well as bolster its own standing at the expense of the Fatah-led Palestinian National Authority in the West Bank.

Fatality figures provided by Hamas and other groups should be viewed with suspicion. Not only do Israeli figures cast doubt on claims that the vast majority of fatalities are non-combatants, but a careful review of Palestinian sources also raises doubts.

Analyses of the casualties listed in the daily reports published by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, a Gaza-based organization operating under Hamas rule, indicate that young males ages 17 to 30 make up a large portion of the fatalities, and a particularly noticeable spike occurs between males ages 21 to 27, a pattern consistent with the age distribution typically found among combatants and military conscripts. Palestinian sources attempt to conceal this discrepancy with their public message by labeling most of these young men as civilians. Only a minority is identified as members of armed groups. As a result, the PCHR calculates civilian fatalities at 82% as of July 26. PCHR provides the most detailed casualty reports of the various Palestinian agencies from Gaza that provide figures to the media and to international organizations like the UN. Its figures closely match those of the Hamas-run Gazan Health Ministry and other groups.

Israel mener at 47% af de dræbte palæstinensere er civile ifølge Daily Star. Og hvor mange af de dræbte civile blev så dræbt af de israelske styrker? Det ved vi endnu ikke, men FN skolen ved Rafa blev ikke bombet af Israelerne, ifølge Thomas Wictors grundige billedanalyser.

Here’s where the strike actually took place.

Rafah_actual_location

The green arrow marks the school gates. On the ground are the two targets of the strike. One has a beard and holds his index finger up in the Wahabbist symbol of there being one God for whom this chunkster will kill and die. The Man in Black with the latex gloves is supposed to be some kind of paramedic, but he’s just an actor, as you’ll see. Note the scaffolding marked by the red arrow.

Now, suddenly the two men who were targeted on the street are on the school grounds!

Rafah_changed places

They’ve also changed places. The Wahabbist was on the other wounded man’s right side; now he’s on his left. And the man in the red shirt, lying behind both wounded men? The last time we saw him, he was in the street.

Rahah_red_shirt

He’s unhurt. Like almost everybody else, he’s pretending. At some point a little girl appears. Don’t worry; she’s not injured.

Rafah_little_girl

The Man in Black roars for help, and Red Shirt is still proned out, but the brown-shirted man who was lying next to him is now gone. Here’s another photo of the little girl.

Rafah_little_girl.8

Though we’re told she’s dead, her mouth is now open, and Brown Shirt has definitely dematerialized. Like my ghost cat. A man wearing a baseball cap stoops to help the little girl.

He picks her up. But wait! Brown shirt is back! I’ve marked him with a green arrow.

Rafah_little_girl.2

He’s sitting up, next to his hale and hearty friend Red Shirt.

The man who picked up the little girl is getting ready to take her to the ambulance.

Rafah_little_girl.3

Behind him, Brown Shirt has gotten to his knees. He’s going to be fine. The Wahabbist on the right is now pointing to where he thinks he’s headed. A graybeard in a purple shirt helpfully screams like a maniac. Behind him to the right, a bored girls stands with her arms folded.

The man who picked up the “wounded” little girl now sprints through the gates, carrying her to safety.

Rafah_little-girl.4

Hold on: It’s a completely different man. Did he steal the little girl from the other guy? Or did this man take her because he’s younger and fitter, so he can run faster? Yes, that’s what happened. His plan is to just keep on running. Forever.

Look how far he is from the school gate. Where the hell is he going?

A video has emerged of an imam in Chicago preaching that Muslims should wage war against Israel and that paradise awaits those who die in jihad. The website of his mosque says it has hundreds of members and a full-time Islamic school for children.

The sermons by Imam Mohamed Elimam of the Islamic Center of Chicago, also known as the At-Takaful Islamic Society, took place between July 18 and 25. A documentary on the Society’s website identifies it as the alternative name for the Islamic Center of Chicago and shows children learning at its school.

The organization is listed as a church and is not required to file IRS forms. Its 2012 990 Form lists its revenue for that year as $856,732.

Memri har samlet nogle uddrag fra Hamas pressestrategi

“Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank. Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian’ or ‘innocent citizen’ in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.

“Begin [your reports of] news of resistance actions with the phrase ‘In response to the cruel Israeli attack,’ and conclude with the phrase ‘This many people have been martyred since Israel launched its aggression against Gaza.’ Be sure to always perpetuate the principle of ‘the role of the occupation is attack, and we in Palestine are fulfilling [the role of] the reaction.’

“Beware of spreading rumors from Israeli spokesmen, particularly those that harm the home front. Be wary regarding accepting the occupation’s version [of events]. You must always cast doubts on this [version], disprove it, and treat it as false.

“Avoid publishing pictures of rockets fired into Israel from [Gaza] city centers. This [would] provide a pretext for attacking residential areas in the Gaza Strip. Do not publish or share photos or video clips showing rocket launching sites or the movement of resistance [forces] in Gaza.

“To the administrators of news pages on Facebook: Do not publish close-ups of masked men with heavy weapons, so that your page will not be shut down [by Facebook] on the claim that you are inciting violence. In your coverage, be sure that you say: ‘The locally manufactured shells fired by the resistance are a natural response to the Israeli occupation that deliberately fires rockets against civilians in the West Bank and Gaza’…”

Resultatet kan man se og høre i de fleste medier, en ofte ukritisk kolportering af Hamas påstande, mistænkeliggørelse af Israel og direkte udeladelser af afgørende oplysninger og sammenhænge. BBC Watch giver et uddybende eksempel på, hvorledes Hamas terminologi glider ind i nyhedsformidlingen

Over the past week or so, the BBC has put considerable effort into amplifying and promoting Hamas’ main pre-condition for a ceasefire: the removal of border restrictions imposed by Egypt and Israel in response to terrorism against their citizens carried out by terrorist organisations in the Gaza Strip. Documentation of some of those BBC efforts can be seen here, here, here and here.

In the past few days, however, we have seen a shift in the BBC’s approach to the topic. No longer content with ‘merely’ providing context-free advertisement for the demands of a proscribed terror organisation, the BBC has now adopted that organisation’s terminology, ditching its former use of the phrase “economic blockade” for the inaccurate and partial term “siege”.

Here is a screenshot from the July 28th edition of BBC Two’s flagship news and current affairs programme ‘Newsnight’.

Screenshot Newsnight 28 7  siege

One presumes that the BBC is familiar with the Oxford English Dictionary. Here is its definition of a siege:

“A military operation in which enemy forces surround a town or building, cutting off essential supplies, with the aim of compelling those inside to surrender.”

A besieging army does not ensure and facilitate the provision of humanitarian aid including food and medical supplies to those it surrounds. It does not supply them with 50% of their electricity supply, with oil and diesel or with cooking gas. It does not help them export their produce and give their farmers agricultural training. It does not evacuate their sick and treat them – sometimes at its own expense – in its own hospitals.

Israel of course does all of the above – and more – and critically, Israel’s aim is not to compel “those inside to surrender”, but to prevent in as far as is possible the flow of weapons and dual-use goods which can be used to manufacture weapons into the Gaza Strip because for fourteen years its own civilians have been under attack by terrorist organisations located there.

Vi ser ingen Hamas krigere og hører kun om civile dødsfald i forbindelse med israelske bombardementer og efterlades med et indtryk af de israelske styrker som unødigt agressive. Modus operandi er et ukendt begreb og Hamas ønske om at ville udslette Israel optræder højest som et kuriosum. Men Hamas modus operandi med menneskeskjold har betydning for antallet af dræbte civile palæstinensere og ingen hær har som den israelske gjort så meget for at mindske lidelserne for modpartens civile. Det er den samme historie, hver gang Israel tager et opgør med de terrororganisationer, der har svoret massedrab på jøderne. Medierne svømmer over med Hamas eller Hezbollahs hysteri om massakrer på palæstinensiske civile og fordømmelserne regner ned over Israel. Meget senere når regnskabet gøres op har det ikke mediernes eller politikernes interesse at Israel har været udsat for et justitsmord. Og for hver gang lægges der lidt til det stigende endnu diffuse jødehad på venstrefløjen.

2014_07_20_human_shields_on_hamas_orders

Hamas brug af menneskeskjolde og uklare skelnen mellem civile og krigere udsætter selvfølgelig civile for livsfare. Og det er en krigsforbrydelse. Det er ligeledes en krigsforbrydelse at bruge hospitaler, skoler og FN faciliteter som affyringsramper for raketangreb da det gør dem til legale militære mål.

As many as 25 percent of Hamas rocket attacks against Israel in the current Israel-Hamas war don’t make it out of Gaza and strike civilians inside the coastal enclave, Algemeiner Editor Dovid Efune asserted in an interview on Real News TV on Friday.

Asked about an explosion at a UN school on Thursday, which killed at least 15, according to Gazan reports, Efune pointed to the IDF’s claim that the source of the munition may have been Hamas.

Algemeiner skriver ligeledes om hvorledes journalister bliver udnyttet eller intimideret til at være en del af Hamas propaganda maskine

Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati said he was able to speak freely about witnessing a Hamas misfire that killed nine children at the Shati camp, confirming the Israel Defense Forces version of events, but only after leaving Gaza, “far from Hamas retaliation.”

On Twitter, Barbati, Jerusalem Correspondent for Radio Popolare Milano, and a former reporter for Sky Italia, in Beijing, said, “Out of #Gaza far from #Hamas retaliation: misfired rocket killed children yday [yesterday] in Shati. Witness: militants rushed and cleared debris.”

He said, “@IDFSpokesperson said truth in communique released yesterday about Shati camp massacre. It was not #Israel behind it.”

On Tuesday, the IDF released aerial photos showing how a rocket from Gaza targeting Israel hit the Shati camp, run by the UNRWA, and Al Shifa Hospital, which has become a de-facto Hamas headquarters, against international rules of war.

Barbati said he was unable to speak about the Al Shifa hit, but he was certain that it was a Hamas rocket that hit the Shati camp, and a witness saw militants rushing to clean the debris.

Thomas Wictor har foretaget et glimrende stykke research, som medierne ikke har villet besvære sig med, på en anden påstået massakre ved Shijaiyah markedsplads og konkluderer ganske overbevisende at dødsfaldende skyldtes Hamas omgang med egne raketter

That burning warehouse was full of Hamas rockets. The series of concussions you hear are secondary explosions, not the primary explosions of aerial munitions. When you bomb a warehouse full of fueled rockets, each rocket will explode separately. What happened was the empty marketplace next to the burning warehouse became the set for a Pallywood production, but then the rockets started exploding, killing and maiming the people who tried to exploit this situation.

I know they’re secondary explosions because they’re causing no destruction. No fountains of earth or clouds of dust appear with each loud BOOM! And the Palestinians also sent out a photo of what they called an “unexploded Israeli missile” from this incident.

Missile

It’s not. The size would mean that it was an MK-84 2000-lb. general-purpose bomb, but those have casings that are cast in one piece. This “munition” has a welded-on nose cone. You can clearly see the the weld line, part of it in white. Therefore it’s not Israeli. It’s a prop for sympathetic or coerced photographers.

UPDATE

A reader tipped me off that a nearly identical photo was published on July 14, 2014.

Getty_images

That means this object has nothing whatsoever to do with the events of July 30, 2014. Note the spurious caption. Great work, Getty Images!

This next bit of video is very gruesome, but it shows that I’m right. You don’t have to watch it because I’ve isolated the relevant evidence that this damage was caused by Hamas rockets exploding. Read the description below the video first.

It contains footage of a man whose face, arms, torso, and legs are burned black. If you click the image, it’s pixelated so that you can’t see the terrible details.

burned

His legs are also broken. The only thing that could’ve done all that was an exploding rocket that smashed into him and doused him in burning fuel.

WARNING! WARNING! CONJECTURE AHEAD!

He has rolled trouser legs, indicating that he’s a Salafist Wahabbist. He may be a Hamas operative who was blown out of the warehouse and across the street.

Here’s more evidence that part of a burning rocket shooting along the wall wreaked all that havoc. First, we see the body of Rani Rayan, marked with the green arrow.

Rani_Rayan.3

We’re told that he was killed by an aerial munition, but the paramedic sitting up next to him is alive. Also, look at all the shoes lying around, and remember that most people were injured in the feet, ankles, shins, and lower body.

Next, the fronts of the two ambulances.

damaged_ambulances

Why would the fronts be shattered if the air strike happened behind the ambulances, as the videos show? Here’s the answer, which also explains why the bystanders turned on the water. Look at the smoke stain and holes in the wall, marked with a green arrow.

smoke

They’re from a Hamas rocket fuel tank. Because it was a tank, it contained no shrapnel. The fuel ignited in the warehouse, causing the tank to shoot like a torpedo across the street. It struck and killed Rani Rayan, breaking his legs. Please forgive the awful image, but it proves that I’m right. He has no shrapnel injuries, only badly broken legs.

Rani_Rayan.4

The fuel tank then exploded on the ground in the corner of the courtyard, blowing off everybody’s shoes and injuring them in the lower extremities. It turned each stone and piece of trash into a low-flying projectile.

All the videos to which I’ve linked are heavily edited to persuade viewers that this was an air strike on ambulances, but when the people trying to deceive you don’t know about military or technical matters, they make mistakes.

One of the secondary explosions was caught on film, at 2:03. You can hear the explosion and see the puff of smoke from the rocket blowing up.

So: the open-air market was closed, not crowded or busy. Israel had declared a ceasefire that did not include Shijaiyah, because Hamas kept firing rockets from that neighborhood. The Israelis struck a warehouse, not the market. Their intelligence was good; the fourteen secondary explosions show that the warehouse was full of rockets. The Palestinians showed up to create propaganda. They brought ambulances and frantic paramedics, but their inhuman leaders hadn’t told them that the warehouse was a giant bomb waiting to go off.

The rockets exploded, Hamas got its faked atrocity video, and the stenographers of the western media dutifully wrote what they were told.

Does it matter to anybody that the whole thing is a lie from top to bottom?

Update

The Telegraph article has very high-quality video that allowed me to garner further proof that this was a self-inflicted massacre.

First, you can see Rani Rayan a second before his death. He’s marked with the green arrow.

Explosion1.

The moment the explosion happens, every person nearby has his feet knocked out from under him.

Explosion.2

All those men are airborne, their legs having been hit with and forced backward by a pressure wave only a few inches above the ground. The first explosion sounds like a pulse-jet engine: preh-keh-ka-boom. That’s the noise of a large, hard object clattering down the cinder-block wall.

It was an exploding Hamas rocket fuel tank that killed and injured these people. I have no doubt.

“I think any President should be troubled by any war or any kinetic action that leads to death,” Obama told me when I brought up Yousafzai’s remarks. “The way I’ve thought about this issue is, I have a solemn duty and responsibility to keep the American people safe. That’s my most important obligation as President and Commander-in-Chief. And there are individuals and groups out there that are intent on killing Americans—killing American civilians, killing American children, blowing up American planes. That’s not speculation. It’s their explicit agenda.”

Obama said that, if terrorists can be captured and prosecuted, “that’s always my preference. If we can’t, I cannot stand by and do nothing. They operate in places where oftentimes we cannot reach them, or the countries are either unwilling or unable to capture them in partnership with us. And that then narrows my options: we can simply be on defense and try to harden our defense. But in this day and age that’s of limited—well, that’s insufficient. We can say to those countries, as my predecessor did, if you are harboring terrorists, we will hold you accountable—in which case, we could be fighting a lot of wars around the world. And, statistically, it is indisputable that the costs in terms of not only our men and women in uniform but also innocent civilians would be much higher. Or, where possible, we can take targeted strikes, understanding that anytime you take a military strike there are risks involved. What I’ve tried to do is to tighten the process so much and limit the risks of civilian casualties so much that we have the least fallout from those actions. But it’s not perfect.”

It is far from that. In December, an American drone flying above Al Bayda province, in Yemen, fired on what U.S. intelligence believed was a column of Al Qaeda fighters. The “column” was in fact a wedding party; twelve people were killed, and fifteen were seriously injured. Some of the victims, if not all, were civilians. This was no aberration. In Yemen and Pakistan, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, American drones have killed between some four hundred and a thousand civilians—a civilian-to-combatant ratio that could be as high as one to three. Obama has never made it clear how the vast populations outraged and perhaps radicalized by such remote-control mayhem might figure into his calculations about American security.

“Look, you wrestle with it,” Obama said. “And those who have questioned our drone policy are doing exactly what should be done in a democracy—asking some tough questions. The only time I get frustrated is when folks act like it’s not complicated and there aren’t some real tough decisions, and are sanctimonious, as if somehow these aren’t complicated questions. Listen, as I have often said to my national-security team, I didn’t run for office so that I could go around blowing things up.”

Nemlig sosser, en nations ret og vilje til at forsvare sig selv må i bryde lidt mere med.
