The 100% pro-Israel Democrat-Republicans, at every level of office for as long as anyone can remember, have always been pro-Zionist Israel and now support this latest vicious attack on the Palestinian people WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS, as Israel cannot exist for one second without our tax dollars, to the tune of $6 billion a year, making Israel the 4th largest military power in the world. Democrat Obama has just proudly stated he supports the latest genocide against Gaza AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN 100% PRO-ISRAEL. See
The latest pretext are the pathetic rockets the Palestinians are sending into Israel (Historic Palestine), which have not killed anyone and have not caused serious damage. See
There is good reason to believe the previous pretext, the killing of 3 Zionist settlers, was an inside job, and so far, no one has been arrested and charged for this killing. See
Were the Three Settler Kidnappings an Israeli “False Flag” Operation? By Karin Brothers, 7/4/14 at
We should always assume such killings of Zionists are an inside job as we must always ask the question, who benefits? The answer in this case is Zionist Israel and its patron, Nazi USA. Both are viciously reactionary police states, becoming worse every day.
The more likely reason is money, in the form of gas profits, as there are gas fields off the coast of Gaza. See
War and Natural Gas: The Israeli Invasion and Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields by Michel Chossudovsky, 7/10/14 at
The 1.7 million Palestinians, 50% of whom are children, who live in the 139 square miles that is the Gaza Strip have NO PLACE TO HIDE as there are NO underground shelters. The 4th largest military in the world, the Israeli war machine, is slaughtering defenseless people so the oil and munitions companies of the USA can maximize their profits, the primary goal of capitalism, the bankrupt social order in which we live.

Eye Witness Report from Gaza. No Shelters to Escape the Israeli Attacks by Dr. Mona El-Farra, July 8, 2014 at
Good news websites to keep up with how your tax dollars are being spent to slaughter Palestinians today to maximize oil and munitions profits are:
For more information on the history of the horrifying 66 year occupation of Palestinian land, the theft of Palestine from the Palestinian people, and the 66 year history of torture and murder of the Palestinian people by the Zionists who collaborated with Nazi Germany just as today they collaborate with Nazi USA, see

Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields:
International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network
Occupy AIPAC (AIPAC stands for American Israel Public Affairs Committee-pro-capitalist, pro-Israel wealthy lobbyists who deliver almost entire US Congress and every president to support the US military base that exists to protect US Middle East oil profits and US imperialism around the world, commonly known as Israel. They are officially lobbyists but in reality, are a mouthpiece of the US capitalist class as Israel is a colony of the US. Occupy AIPAC opposes AIPAC.)

Walled: Israeli Society at an Impasse by Sylvain Cypel
(2005, 2006) Other Press, ISBN 13:978-1-5905 1-210-4
(A good early history of the apartheid wall and history and contemporary life of Israel and its relationship to the US as a military base. The lack of separation of church and state is evident as “All Israeli students study the Hebrew Bible in public school for several hours a week, from the elementary grades through high school (knowledge of the Bible is tested on the high school exit examination.)” (p. 177) Superstition and militarism clearly go together This is a sign of an extremely backward society).
A Wall in Palestine by Rene Backman
(2006, 2010) Picador/St. Martin’s Press, NY ISBN 978-0-312-42781-8
(Good maps of the apartheid wall and description of resistance to it; it is clearly a land grab as there are means of going through wall and thus it has nothing to do with security; also describes segregated roads and racist license system).
An Israeli in Palestine by Jeff Halper (an American who moved to Israel in 1973 at age 27, is a professor of anthropology, is the leader of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions and supports the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Campaign against Israel described in Appendix 4). (2008) Pluto Press, ISBN 978-0-7453-2226-1. “There is not even a civil mechanism by which Jewish, Christian, and Muslim citizens of Israel can marry each other since personal status, citizenship, marriage, death, inheritance, is regulated by religious and not civil law.” p. 76
Palestine Inside Out by Saree Makdisi, (2008, 2010) Norton Press, ISBN 978-0-393-33844-7. With a beautiful foreword by Alice Walker, comparing the racist horrors of Zionist Israel to white racism in the USA, Makdisi, a Palestinian-American professor of English literature at UCLA, writes a detailed account of the daily horrors of life in Occupied Palestine. His periodic sections “By the Numbers” offer useful statistics, his maps are plentiful, and his entire book is a ringing indictment of the mental illness that is religion and the anti-women horror of theocratic states. As Americans read it, we must remember that this is all paid for with our tax dollars and supported 100% by every single Democratic and Republican politician at every level of government. It is opposed by all socialist parties and the Green Party.
Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, Vol. 3 by Alan Hart (2005, 2010) Clarity Press, ISBN 0-932863-69-8/978-0-932863-69-0. Alan Hart, a former ITN (part of British news agency that produces outstanding Channel 4 of UK) and BBC Panorama correspondent, covers the horrors of Zionism in Israel and its relationship to the United States from 1967 to January 2010 from the perspective of a non-Jewish journalist perspective with lots of worthwhile insights.
