Never Again?

I have often wondered for whom this expression was intended.
Never Again....should any people suffer collective punishment simply for existing.



On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert admitted that he intended to commit war crimes in Gaza, telling his cabinet that he wanted “no one to be able to sleep tonight in Gaza”. Olmert thus officially acknowledged Israel’s policy of collectively punishing 1.4 million Palestinians, a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

"punishment simply for existing"

Nope. Just for bomarding towns with missiles as well as for kidnappings and murder.

What about the Israeli warship that massacred picnicking Palestinians on the beach in Gaza?

What about 30 plus members of the democratically elected Palestinian government murdered by Israeli Hellfire missiles as they went about their daily routines in their own country?
Such terrorism!
What about the kidnapped members of the Palestinian Parliament held in Israeli torture dungeons along with THOUSANDS of Palestinian and Lebanese men, women and children.

No "rockets" were fired into Israel in this current war until they invaded the nation of Lebanon.
(sorry pal, the only “missiles” in the war are coming from America to bellies of Israeli war planes and into the homes of the Lebanese – thousands upon thousands of them raining down destroying the nation of Lebanon utterly since the Israeli land grab began.)

This wonderful myth mentioned by Neocons and Zionists of “kidnapped” soldiers every time they open their lying mouths is just a flimsy pretext for this long planned land and water grab in Southern Lebanon.
These sacrificed soldiers are like the character “old shoe” in the movie “Wag the Dog”.
They were sent into Southern Lebanon (sacrificed by their own leaders) as provocateurs so the Zionist mass murderers could begin their long planned seizure of South Lebanon, specifically the seizure of the Litani River.
Water is to the M.E. as oil is to the west.
But you know that don’t you?

No matter how times you, Tony Snow, Bush, or Olmurderer repeat these lies they simple will not become true to any thinking person who looks beyond our Zionist biased media here in North America and reads about what is really going on.
Nice try but as a propagandist you are but a weak regurgitating tool of far more clever liars.

Your lopsided propaganda will not fly here pal.
