Israel – Gaza: Savagery as Entertainment

By Tom Feeley

Let me ask a question. Do you think Israeli parent feels more pain for the death of their their children than Palestinian people do. It is sad that we find it necessary to state the obvious. We are one human family, there is no human subspecies. You may believe what you choose but facts show that we are all born from the same ancestors.

I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity and honor to work and live in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Latin America. Before going to Oman I read the Holy Koran (English Translation). I was invited and was very pleased to go with my Islamic brothers to Mosque on Friday’s . Before traveling to India, I read and the Bhagavad Gita and joined my Hindu brothers and sisters at the temple. I do not suggest that I am In any way an expert on either of these religions or cultures. What I will say is that no matter where I traveled, I was always made to feel welcome and treated as a family member by those who had provided me with the opportunity of visiting their homes and sharing their food.

What ever differences we perceive between peoples is purely because the are raised in different cultures. (Social Constructs) Let us remind ourselves that Chimpanzees, our closest cousins have 98% of our DNA. Sometimes it appears that we allow ourselves to let rage and our lower animal instincts overcome our rational mind and a hundred thousand years conscience is swept away in barbarism. I don’t care what you describe yourself as, where you live or what religion you practice, beneath the veneer that we cloak ourselves in were all are scared humans in search security that that we can never find.

Something I don’t understand, Is why our community has become so silent while been aware of the crimes our government allows and pays for Israel to commit against humanity. I guess many are scared have been frightened to speaking their minds.

ICH has is banned in many government buildings around the world and can only be read using a VPN. We have been banned on Twitter, Facebook and Google will not index the website in it’s news section etc, etc. A badge of honor. Some of those who receive our newsletter, report that links to article on our blog have been removed, making it impossible to read these items.

If you just want entertain yourself rather than act according the principles you claim to have may I suggest that you unsubscribe from our newsletter/website. Just go away and stop the pretense of caring about humanity. We need people who are prepared to deal with criticism as a cost of standing up for justice and peace.

    Social engineering, Tom.
    Religious ethics replaced by infotainment and wall to wall sports saturation, with its focus on competition uber a££€$ and a large dollop of Madi$on Avenue ‘because I’m worth it’ to sweeten the ego-ma$$age.
    Throw in media embeddedment (or €£$e, a la Shireeen Abu Akleh et al) and the incessant hasbara PR-op-agenda, and Joe Goebbels would be wetting himself with delight.

    Me, at 73 I’ve taken the marker out to scrawl ‘Gaza chamber’ on the wall because main$tr€am Irish media watchdogs have been thrown the requi$ite collaterally damaged bones, so letters to editors must fit the imperial Wi£d W€$tern supremacyst frameworKKK.
    No mystery, jU$t bU$in€$$ as U$ua£.

    Not silent, $i£€nced.

    People know the truth but instinctively keep silent about it. It’s the nature. When in pain, and many of us have experienced pain over the loss of the persons dear to us is not to seek revenge but to find the strength to stop. And be kind.

    The first amendment gives US citizens the right to free speech as long as nothing is said about the white supremists and their constituencies. Our congressmen are well aware of what side of the bread has the butter and consequences of using their constitutional free speech. When you are subservient to a plutocracy and its oligarchs obedience is your job, not working for the taxpayers or human rights.

    I stand with Israel because I am scared to death of AIPAC. That makes sense. These feckless bums don’t love Israel. They love power and massages.

    Dear Mr. Freely . You are ignoring one very important point that is so deer to jews , the almighty assignment of the “chosen ” to the jewish people . Even the most secular jew and most leftist will always find it convenient to drop all his creed when it suits him to play Jew

      That’s because most Christians don’t understand and believe the New Testament “Common Era” delineated by Christ Jesus, means Jews no longer have exclusivity with God and treat modern Day Israel recreated from the Bible as an IDOL beyond reproach.

    People have remained silent and information censored for centuries. War crimes have only been considered “crimes” in recent history. Caesar, Alexander, Ghengis Khan waged war when crimes against humanity were interpreted as victory. Hard to remove ourselves from who we are and aspiring for a higher moral standard takes thousands of years. Time is running out for the human race. Sink or swim, the Universe moves on with or without. A pivotal moment when moral political leadership is completely lacking. Climate, pollution, over population, weapons of mass destruction, depleted essential resources will cull the herd and possibly cause a new human to evolved. There is no other option.

    Peace and joy to all of humanity was the message to the shepherds that 1st Christmas Eve.
    The 3rd part of the message is Good Will to ALL men, and that’s the part missing that precludes the Peace and Joy for all humanity

    Mr. Feeley,

    I haven’t been able to open a single article from your newsletter for two weeks. That is until today. I suspected that my ISP (Public Library) was was the problem, as they have blocked me from using certain browsers in the past (the I.T. people admitted that their Google Chrome and Firefox browsers are ‘special’ and not available to the public.) The staff, here, assured me yesterday that they were not preventing me from opening the articles, but I have my doubts. I’ve supported you for many years, and I will continue to do so. However, I stopped using Paypal when they froze Consortium News’ donations, because they didn’t like their news reporting on Ukraine. I can still send donations by mail if this is alright with you. Keep up the good work, Tom and stay well!
