We again see how the United Nations placed such a strong emphasis on what the Israelis did to their compound/school in Gaza and still no action as to what Israel did to the residents of Gaza. The Goldstone report lies in the bottom draw of Ban Ki-moon’s office, collecting dust and is not likely to reach any conclusion because of the Pro Israeli lobby group that control the politics of the US, UK and Europe. I remember just after this massive disproportionate action by Israel the Secretary General condemned the attack on his property but fell short of extended his comments regarding the more serious aspects of “Cast Lead” on the people of Gaza and their property.
To this day we see no action against Israel and an incomplete report by Goldstone that falls well short of the genocidal weapons used by the IDF. We see aid rushing into the central government in West Bank but very little flowing into Gaza. We see continued action being taken by the IDF on the strip with little sign of “Cast Lead” actually having finished. The Gaza strip continues to be a war zone and now they are talking about going back in again.
Now their so called Muslim brother in Egypt have turned their backs entirely on Gaza and become brothers to the Americans who continue to fill their wallets with aid and military hardware. Egypt is now installing a US design (and probably paid for) underground wall to cut through Gaza’s tunnel system (their lifeline). In this week of remembrance for the people of Gaza who died during the conflict we hear the Egyptian Foreign Minister announce that no more aid convoys will be allowed in Egypt.
How can such a cowardly country prop up the US and turn their backs on Gaza and their brothers in Palestine? How can they disassociate themselves from the very land that they once owned? Is this democracy Egyptian style? Can one even imagine that even their precious natural gas that is so vital to their own country is sold to Israel at below cost price!.......now that a good deal don’t you think? We must all never forget the basics taught to us by our grandparents “Generosity and kindness starts at home.” It is obvious that Egypt has lost its directions, ethics and its Arabic roots in favour of American and Israeli foreign policy.
Carefully orchestrated press releases by Israel and the US keep highlighting that Hamas is the problem and even are now saying that Al Qaeda is operating in the South near Rafah. It is obvious that they will not let up on the strip until they have removed Hamas or this fantasy group called Al Qaeda.
Let’s just remind our readers that this conflict is all about the Natural Resources in the offshore Gaza Marine Area which contains significant reserves of Natural Gas at two locations: Marine 1 and Marine 2. Reader must also understand that Israel may well be raping/stealing these vital resources from under the nose of the Palestinians.
A US/Israeli joint venture, which is in production on the border with Gaza, is already pumping gas to onshore Ashkelon and has been for some years. Noble Energy the US exploration and drilling company have further plans to pump more gas from their Noa and Noa South finds (to the west) to the existing operational production platform called Mardi B. Noa and Noa South stagger the border and is thus jointly owned by Gaza (Palestine). It is also debatable as to if the Mardi B also staggers the border. Whatever the situation it is obvious that Gaza is sitting on incredible wealth and the US, UK and Israel are stopping them from securing their own legitimate resource in total violation of both the UN and the Geneva Convention.
It is with total disgust that we see and read about this ongoing “Mickey Mouse Melodrama” that is playing out in the Eastern Mediterranean. Its leading stars are Obama, Clinton, Brown, Miliband and not forgetting the supporting cast from Israel. It was so sickening to see European leaders visiting Israel to shake hands with War Criminals……maybe one can fully understand why, when you realize that all the major political parties in the US, UK and EU operate a “Friends of Israel” system that allows them to receive large funds for election campaigns in return for turning a blind eye to war crimes or to manipulate a policy that may favors Israel.
It is almost beyond a shadow of doubt that the IDF used illegal weapons on Gaza and continue to do so. The most lethal of these weapons are those that contain uranium components which the US classifies as conventional weapons. The weapons can only be identified as WMD’s or Mini Nukes and have been used in the Balkans, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza, Pakistan and now Somalia and Yemen.
The effects from these standard weapons of war (which are produced mainly in the US) are catastrophic to say the least. The total amount of people around the world that have succumbed to the radioactive aerosols (nanoparticles) is gathering momentum and will reach millions within a short time frame. Israel IMI is also believed to be manufacturing such weapons but the US doesn’t insist on checking their arsenal!
The notorious “Gulf War Syndrome” is believed to be as a direct result of these weapons. The major medical problems consist of many forms of cancer, diabetes, mental health problems, infertility, still births and grossly deformed babies. Many other illnesses also take centre stage which I will list below.

We must all start to ask many questions of our respective government as to why they continue to use such weapons that are totally indiscriminate and do not recognize any international borders.
I found it incredibly sad to see a short story on TV regarding the many small villages in the Balkans that have run out of space to bury their dead. Most of the deaths are directly related to the US-UK-NATO war and the weapons used. It is now apparent that younger residents are now falling victim to these evil weapons. I hear of Bosnian residents in the UK returning home after a visit to the region only to find their relative extremely sick or dying from cancer.
So Mr Ban Ki-Moon I hope you cherish the fact that your bank account has now been topped up and that Gaza and all the other areas of conflict receive nothing and their residents are dying. This is nothing short of genocide and the fact that you have a gentleman in your midst that you installed as the Special Adviser for Prevention of Genocide, Mass Atrocities is disgraceful. The gentleman’s name is Mr. Francis Deng, perhaps you could visit his office and start some sort action against the instigators or alternative prohibit the use of all weapons containing uranium components. Please Mr. Secretary General do your job by representing the countries that pay your US run organization or move on and let someone with more leadership take over!
