end silence on Gaza

a0595245

Tehran, Jan 15, IRNA – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on Saudi Arabian King Abdullah on Thursday to end silence on the ongoing blatant genocide and tragic massacre of Muslims in Gaza Strip

would, by announcing his positioin on the current developments in Gaza, disappoint world’s corrupt powers who sought to sow discord among Muslims.

Addressing King Abdullah, the Iranian president said, “While all freedom-seekers of the world condemned the usurper regime’s crimes in Gaza and supported the oppressed people of Gaza, you as the king of the Saudi Arabia and servent of the holy shrines, are expected to break your silence and announce your clear position vis-a-vis the tragic genocide and massacre of children of the Islamic Ummah in Gaza.”

The president added that the Zionist regime would “undoubtedly gain nothing but defeat, humilation and an eventual collapse due to the continuous resistance of the people in Gaza and their faith to God.”

He added, “All know that the Zionist regime has no future and its current attitude indicates its frustration over continuation of its presence and life in the region.”

“You know that the innocent and defenseless people of Gaza have been under savage and brutal attacks by Zionpast during the past 19 consecutive days and nights. While being in a complete blockade, they are also under severe attacks and bombardments from air, sea and ground,” the president further told King Abdullah.

He said that bullying powers and the so-called advocates of democracy and human rights were fully supporting the aggressive acts of the Zionist regime.

President Ahmadinejad regretted that “Certain Islamic and Arab states in the region are supporting or tolerating the unprecedented genocide with their silence or their smiles and are even waiting to see the resistance of the brave Palestinians yield to bullying of the occupiers.”

President Ahmadijenad wished for the success of all free nations, victory of the brave resistance of Gazans and the defeat of the Zionists and arrogant powers

Palestinians Will Never Forget

How can anyone watching Gaza burn escape the bitter realization that history repeats itself? Many have compared Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to Apartheid South Africa. But not in their cruelest hour did the Apartheid regime wreak such wanton murder and destruction. Let us stop mincing words. What is happening to Palestinians now whispers of Warsaw and Lodz.

Schools, universities, mosques, police stations, homes, water treatment plants, factories, and anything that supports civil society, including the only mental health clinic in Gaza, have been blown to rubble from planes that rain death from clear skies without any resistance, because Palestinians have no opposing air force. Nor do they have an army or navy. No mechanized armor or heavy weaponry. Thanks to Israel, they haven’t even had continuous electricity or fuel for the past two years. Or food and medicine. Israel’s siege and blockade of Gaza has prevented the movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza, including the import of the most basic goods necessary for survival.

A recent study by the Red Cross showed that 46 percent of Gazan children suffer from anemia. Malnutrition affects 75 percent of Gaza’s population, half of whom are under the age of 17. There has been widespread deafness among children due to Israel’s intentional and frequent sonic booms from low overflights. An alarming number have stunted growth and serious mental disorders due lack of food. The only way they have been able to survive thus far has been due to the tunnels that smuggle food and goods from Egypt.

Half of Gazan children under 12 have lost their “will to live.” Can anyone fathom the kind of oppression that leads small children en mass to lose their will to live?

What You’d Know About Israel If You Watched Al Jazeera TV

g11_17484077

Israel’s siege of Gaza, largely unseen by the outside world because of Jerusalem’s refusal to allow humanitarian aid workers, reporters and photographers access to Gaza, rivals the most egregious crimes carried out at the height of apartheid by the South African regime. It comes close to the horrors visited on Sarajevo by the Bosnian Serbs.

Throughout the previous days of Israel’s pummeling of Gaza, live coverage of the war hasn’t made it into most American living rooms. That’s because Israel, America’s staunch ally, isn’t allowing journalists to enter Gaza while Al Jazeera, called anti-American and pro-terrorist by many in Washington, is the only network broadcasting live images from Gaza to the world.

Al Jazeera, the Qatari network that has previously undergone attacks and had its reporters arrested by the U.S. military, remains typically defiant. While other networks are increasingly severed from Gaza as phone lines are cut and 75 percent of the territory is without electricity, Al Jazeera is bringing its approximately 140 million English- and Arabic-speaking viewers live images of bombings, tanks rolling through Gaza’s farmland, and interviews with civilians and aid workers inside Gaza city.

Take Israel’s claim that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. After showing an Israeli politician writing off the assertion of the existence of a humanitarian disaster, Al Jazeera cut to the Al Shifa hospital, the largest in all of Gaza. There, we saw that there were not enough medical supplies and civilians lying on bloody hospital beds told us that their lives were not only being crippled by bombs falling on their houses, but by the extreme lack of water and food for the people cowering inside them.

The problem isn’t only that supplies can’t get in. People still can’t get out. Most are left searching hopelessly for safety while their stories remain trapped within Gaza’s walls.

“There is nowhere safe in Gaza,” an enraged John Ging, head of the UN Relief and Works Agency in Gaza, told Al Jazeera’s Sherine Tadros in front of the Al Shifa hospital today. Those words came after the Israeli Defense Forces bombed a UN school that was being used as a refuge. Later in the day, a second UN school was struck by the Israelis, killing at least 40. “Everyone here is terrorized and traumatized and they have the right to be because there is no safe haven…This violence needs to stop now. Neither side can wait for the other to stop first,” he said.

Gaza events heart rending in history

Substitute Friday prayers leader of Tehran Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said here Friday that recent events in Gaza are the “heart rending” incidents in their kind worldwide.

Delivering Friday prayers sermon here at Tehran University campus, Ayatollah Khatami, who is a member of the Experts Assembly presiding board, said, “No one can be found on Earth not to become unhappy upon seeing the events in Gaza. The incident has left two dark and brilliant records. Those being on the front line of the Gaza incident’s dark file are the tyrant, brutal and usurper Zionist regime. What goes on in Gaza is not a mere war, rather it is barbarism, genocide and infanticide.”

He went on to say, “Anybody wishing to see outspoken `Yazid(s)’ (tyrant(s)) of the time, they are advised to go and see him/them in Gaza. Had there been any justice in the world, rulers of the tyrannical Zionist regime should have been arrested, tried and executed in the public. Of course once-for-life capital punishment of them (Zionists) is not enough; they are worth to be executive tens of times.”

He said crimes in Gaza are committed under open support of the US President George W. Bush. “In final days of his dirty rule, Bush leaves `Black House’ with a long list of crimes. He has in his record massacre of hundreds of thousand innocent people. Massacre of 800 Gazans mark final cases in the list.”

He also felt critic of certain Arab heads of state stances and said, “It was heard that some of the states had financed Gaza attack. That marks permanent dark stain for them. Unfortunately, a government that is Gaza’s neighbor, does espionage for Israel instead of helping the oppressed people of the city.”

In the countries, he said, demonstrations in favor of Gaza have been forbidden and they have instructed their media to condemn Hamas. “Their traitor Mufti too has said pro-Gaza demonstration is a corrupt act.”

He then thanked brave Egyptian people for holding demonstrations in favor of Gaza people.

He advised Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to act independently of the hated Zionist regime, rectify their past records and open Rafah Crossing.

He also urged Egyptian people to come on the scene and have Rafah Crossing opened so as to send help to Gazans..

He then lauded resistance of Gazans and said, “That’s for 14 days that the resistance forces have bravely resisted with bare hands. Israel faced three Arab states 40 years ago and won a six-day war but that’s for 14 days that Palestinian resistance forces have crippled the Israeli regime. Palestinians will become triumphant. That’s a Quranic promise to you that if you resist, divine assistance will be on the way.”
