Khan Younis refugee camp
Excerpts From UNRWA Office, From Gaza, Palestine
Posted On January 1, 2011 by Marivel Guzman
All the content is for information only, awareness and diffusion of the tragedy that Gaza lives right now due to Israel Siege and ultimately largely to the long occupation that have severed the lives of an entire Country.
Khan Yoinis in Gaza Strip, Palestine is just a minor example of the damage of Israel Occupation, the public institution that serve to prologue the occupation and in their roles of Aid Agencies perpetuate the occupation are as guilty as Israel is.
UNRWA is a branch of UN created specifically to Aid Refugees of Conflicts created by war/enterprises organized by the UN Club. UN is an organization that primary intention when created was to avert wars, but as we seen over and over UN is the maker of war and conflicts.
Even thought UNRWA “Aid” alleviates some necessities for the refugees that are registered with this Institution, the great necessity is left unattended.
Construction Material, Food, Health Products and Machinery are primordial to take Gaza out of its misery, but Israel and its Allies with lame excuses are deeping the entire population in despair with no immediate solution offered to Gaza residents but the crumbs of a subsidized Aid.
The governments in charge of UN and its branches give their “Donations” and they look the other way, and pretend everything will be OK. Well nothing is ok, in fact UNRAW is underfunded and its inability. to mitigate the suffering of the refugees is well known.
“UNRWA relies almost entirely upon donations from individuals, institutional donors and governments. Every dollar you donate to UNRWA helps restore dignity to the lives of refugees who are unable to support themselves due to the loss of livelihoods under the blockade” Form UNRWA Office, and yet astronomical salaries are paid to top executives. The latest post offering for UNRWA official in Gaza was in November 2011, Head of UNRWA office in Gaza. “
“UNRWA offers an attractive compensation package including annual salary starting at $111,950 net tax free with dependants or $102,847 single, plus post adjustment of 57% (subject to change without notice). Other benefits, subject to eligibility, include education grant, dependency allowance, home leave, pension fund, health insurance and 6 weeks annual leave. Staff members based in Gaza are entitled to additional benefits, subject to eligibility, including expanded leave provisions, hardship pay, and R&R leave every 6 weeks (according to the UN classification of the duty station and subject to change without notice). While Gaza is a non-family duty station, eligible staff members may set up a second household in a nearby location to have their family nearby. Initial contract is for one year, with the possibility of further extensions. Note: following the assessment of relevant academic qualifications and work experience, the Agency reserves the right to appoint the incumbent at one grade below the advertised level.”
There are more than 11,000 personnel in Gaza that work for UNRWA, most of the recruiters are foreigners from around the world, there are “some” jobs that are given to people from Gaza but are the lowest paid.
Gaza counts with a tremendously educated population graduated from their Universities, they are more than qualified to take top UNRWA posts , they speak Arabic, they know the local custom, they know the internal conflict, they are directly involved in Gaza life, they should be given the opportunity to be part of the solution or at least to take advantage of this foreign “Aid” more directly, will serve to revive in little scale their economy as the Money will stay in Gaza and will not be spend in Israel, as most of the foreign workers are to freely cross the Eretz crossing to Israel in weekly bases.
“It juz shows the magnitude of what’s on display at the moment. Yet the infinite potential of the educated youth who are more than capable of doin much of the needed work to help readdress & reconstruct Gaza’s economy given the chance await for the dawn of a new day. I have no doubt having met with many of the young people I rubbed shoulders with in Gaza that they would flourish when the blockade is eventually broken. Until then the greatest asset of Gaza (which is its people) especially the young have to continue to be battle strong. It’s easier said than done I’m afraid.” Mohammad Hamza
Absolutely! true. Every country in the world has more or less the same problems that Gaza is suffering; extreme poverty belts, severe unemployment, underfunded social programs like health, and after school programs, political internal conflicts, religious division, corruption in the government spheres, plus a Political Blockade imposed by Israel and blessed by the UN country security council members, and an on going military occupation, all this incorporated to the Public Aid System aka Foreign Welfare that makes Gaza a Unique Spot on Earth.
Which can be considered a blessing in any country which is a highly educated society. in Gaza is kind of a soft burden, because an Educated Society is not easy manageable and highly susceptible to change, highly educated society makes it citizens to understand the problematic of the country and will try to do something about it, civil disobedience, non violent resistance movements and violent movement as well, all intended to change the Status Quo of the occupation and the internal dynamics of the political process that seems not help but to keep the population “Controlled”.
It is happening in Gaza, we saw it with the March 15 March, where the youth came together to yell to their leaders what is wrong with them, a move that was not welcome by the authorities but at the end they have to take in consideration, the magnitude of the wave around the world, and in an unprecedented move that surprise world leaders and the world, the two strong internal factions came to an agreement.
Now the Odds are in the hands of time and the World, that every day are taking more notice of the conflict and are speaking up, adding their efforts to the ongoing resistance movement inside Gaza.
What Gaza needs is not Aid, but to be liberated, to be allowed to trade their products, to import material to reconstruct the destroyed infrastructure, to let it be a free region, to take advantage of it’s potential as a fishing port, and tourist destination. Khan Younis, Gaza Stritp, Palestine.
Khan Younis refugee camp is located about two kilometers from the Mediterranean coast, north of Rafah. It lies west of the town of Khan Younis, a major commercial center and stop-off point on the ancient trade route to Egypt.
After the 1948 war, 35,000 refugees took shelter in the camp, having fled their homes during the hostilities. Most were from the Be’er Sheva area. Today, Khan Younis camp is home to nearly 72,000 refugees.
Life for nearly all refugees in the camp is more difficult because of the blockade of Gaza, with much higher unemployment. Fewer families can provide for themselves, leaving a staggering proportion of the population dependent on UNRWA’s food and cash assistance. Ninety per cent of the camp’s water is unfit for human consumption, so basic hygiene is another big concern.
Over the years, many of the refugees living in Khan Younis lost their shelters in Israel Defense Forces operations. Prior to the imposition of the blockade, UNRWA had commenced a significant re-housing project to accommodate all those who had lost their shelters. However, the blockade prevented UNRWA from bringing in construction materials to complete the project, leaving thousands of people without permanent shelters.
UNRWA only received permission in 2010 to bring in the materials to complete a number of housing units for refugees whose shelters were demolished years ago. UNRWA estimates that it must construct a minimum of 10,000 shelters to re-house refugees currently living in unacceptable conditions and/or who have lost their homes as a result of the conflict.
DONOR OPIUM, the impact of international aid to Palestine
This documentary film, directed by Mariam Shahin and George Azar, and funded by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, features Palestinian criticism of this externally funded “development”.
For twenty years now the international donor community has financially supported Palestinian institution-building, infrastructure development, the economy, public employees’ salaries, health and education, social welfare, the police, electricity production, private credit guarantees, and the bigger part of the civil society organizations with regards to democracy promotion, human rights, tolerance, women rights etc.
Peace and the establishment of a Palestinian state have been the declared goals of all the support. But actual results are the fragmentation and pacification of the Palestinian people.
- Nearly 72,000 registered refugees
- 25 school buildings, 22 running double-shifts, accommodating a total of 38 schools
- One food distribution centre
- Three health centres
- Demographic profile:
Programmes in the camp
- Relief and social services
- Microfinance and microenterprise
- Reconstruction and recovery
- Emergency food and cash assistanceaid
- Housing shortage
- High unemployment
- Access to adequate water and electricity supplies

This sensation of fullness
It is taking over your mind
It is guiding you to fight
On the surface of our world right now
There is war, violence, and craziness
And things may seem dark.
But calmly and quietly
At the same time
Something is happening underground.
Something Invisible is crawling
Dispersing and taking over, It’s
Growing like a Vine
An inner revolution is taking place
And certain individuals
Are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution
From the inside out
From the ground up.
This is a global co-operation
That has sleeper cells in every nation.
It is a planetary Spiritual Conspiracy.
You won’t likely see us on T.V.
You won’t read about us in the newspaper.
You won’t hear from us on the radio.
We don’t seek glory.
We don’t wear any uniform.
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
We are in every country and culture of the world
In cities big and small, mountains and valleys
In farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
Most of us work anonymously
Seeking not recognition of name
But profound transformation of life.
Working quietly behind the scenes
You could pass by one of us on the street
And not even notice.
We go undercover
Not concerned for who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done.
Many of us may seem to have normal jobs.
But behind the external storefront
Is where the deeper work takes a place.
With the individual and collective power
Of our minds and hearts
We spread passion, knowledge, and joy to all.
Some call us the Conscious Army
We co-create a new world.
Our orders come from the Spiritual Intelligence Agency
Instructing us to drop soft, secret love bombs
when no one is looking.
Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Smiles ~ Kind words
Movies ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance ~ Websites
Social activism ~ Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness…
We each express ourselves
In our own unique ways
With our own unique gifts and talents.
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
That is the motto that fills our hearts.
We know this is the path to profound transformation.
We know that quietly and humbly
Individually and collectively
We have the power of all the oceans combined.
At first glance our work is not even visible.
It is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains.
And yet with our combined efforts
Entire tectonic plates
Are being shaped and moved for centuries to come.
Love is the religion we come to share
And you don’t need to be highly educated
Or have exceptional knowledge to understand it.
Love arises from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse
Of all living beings.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Nobody else can do it for you.
Yet don’t forget, we are all here supporting you.
We are now recruiting.
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.
We are the legion of the willing
Saving Our World
It is a Primer Task
For in this spiritual conspiracy
All are welcome, and all are loved.
The door is always open.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012-THE BEGINNING UNRAVEL IN FRONT OF US
Posted on December 05, 2011 By Marivel Guzman
I m speaking as an American Natural of this beautiful American Continent, that for the last 400 hundred years have been hijacked by foreign forces driven by evil spirit. Apparently we have enjoyed peace but has been at the expenses of other nations, see around, the destruction is been done to every spot on Earth.
The conflicts created by our leaders has created an atmosphere of murder and pillage everywhere on earth, the natural resources has been depleted to the minimum sustainable levels, the social and economical chaos is not possible to control any longer.
The time is closing on us, the time for acting instead of praying is necessarily howling in our ears every morning that we wake up and a new “Bill” is enacted against our liberties.
The constitution is an eroding document enacted for our protection, every time that a new “Bill” is signed, one more civil liberty is stripped away from us. We do not need to be lawyers to protect our constitutional rights, our bill of rights.
The time to act is a premium-urgent matter, leave the prayers for night time , the time to act is around the corner, it’s in every Occupy spot in our country.
Some more brave than others have made the switch already, some more desperate for a change than others have started acting in their behalf. Some starving fathers and mother unable to feed their family have taken to the Occupy Spots to try to salvage some crumbs from a lost economy that only enriched the 1 % of our society.
We were programed to drive as a robots, just occupied to survive. All the social diseases such alcoholism, drug addiction, poverty, socially engineered poor healthy habits and under funded education were specifically and purposely inadequate to keep you busy and uncomfortably numb.
The unrest is felt every where; in the gas pump, in the supermarket, the University, the factory, the “office”, the coffee shop even in the busiest underground freeways where the homeless live.
Some desperate housewives, nothing to do with soap opera, forced to hopelessly by the banksters and the blind eye of our American Government are adding their misery and their bodies to gross the lines of the Occupy Spots in America, they have nothing else to lose.
After the President Obama economic plan for the rich that was too much, too long, too expected has sparked the social unrest in the US.
I don’t think we have a choice to turn back the clock, we left our welfare unattended for so long, thinking that Uncle Sam would fix our economical situation, we are half responsible for every bit of calamity we are suffering.
Remember that famous Statement: “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.” by Rev. Martin Niemoller (1937)
We can add up so many negligence acts of pure numbness, and carelessness from our part that pertained to our actual situations, new twist on the wording and we get karma pay right back at us.
“First they came for the Muslims, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Muslim.
Then they came to detain immigrants indefinitely solely upon the certification of the Attorney General, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an immigrant.
Then they came to eavesdrop on suspects consulting with their attorneys, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a suspect.
Then they came to prosecute non-citizens before secret military commissions, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a non-citizen.
Then they came to enter homes and offices for unannounced “sneak and peek” searches, and I didn’t speak up because I had nothing to hide.
Then they came to reinstate Cointelpro and resume the infiltration and surveillance of domestic religious and political groups, and I didn’t speak up because I had stopped participating in any groups.
Then they came for anyone who objected to government policy because it aided the terrorists and gave ammunition to America’s enemies, and I didn’t speak up because…… I didn’t speak up.
Then they came for me……. and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
By Stephen Rohde, President of the ACLU of Southern California.
Let’s not forget that everything started in America with the erosion of our precious civil liberties, and the taking away by thugs of our privacy rights, with lies and well paid propaganda that was serving the coffers of a war industry, well ingrained in the conscientiousness of our American Society. A industry that worked so laboriously to take away your children, bathed in a faked patriotism since the cradle. The Government become not your protector but the servile slave of the Corporate America, making laws to serve their masters and becoming the prostitute of Justice. “Working for the best Paying Hand” .
It is not a crime to ask for justice, dissent is our right. Use it wisely while you can.
And as our society keep sinking in despair, dropping deeper in the dark hole of abuse by the insatiable greed of the corporate world and the support of our leaders, other hands are reaching out between the mud of desperation, and even if you judge on moral grounds or out of ignorance without thinking that their doings don’t affect your daily life, but their suppression does, it is a sign of the times.
Understanding the rights of others is the basis to guarantee that we keep enjoying our bill of rights and that no government official can design a law to strip that away from us.
And the stripping and the twisting keeps the ladder and the traps and the wording keeps changing and your rights smudging down.
“First they came for the hackers.
But I never did anything illegal with my computer,
Then they came for the pornographers.
But I thought there was too much smut on the Internet anyway,
Then they came for the anonymous remailers.
But a lot of nasty stuff gets sent from anon.penet.fi,
Then they came for the encryption users.
But I could never figure out how to work PGP anyway,
so I didn’t speak up.
Then they came for me.
And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”
For many years they created murders out of us, the world started hating us, because they took decisions in our name and did great damage to other nations, if we could just have acted with Truth, Justice and Peace, we could have other society, more wiser, more equal and less convulsed with war.
Some have escaped from the lethargy long time ago, and they have been giving us strength with their compassion, leadership with their actions, they are an army of peace activists around the globe, they are musicians, writers, photographers, actors, poets, directors, ordinary citizens that without blinking an eye they defend the weak, the voiceless, the poor, the oppressed from every land.
Vittorio Arrigoni RIP, Ken O’keefe in Gaza Strip, Palestine. Song by Agron Belica
First they made us egocentric fools, thinking that we were right to murder, bomb, invade, colonize, exterminate, “democratize”, all in the name of our mighty power. Fools Fools we let them created pariahs out of us.
Now they turn against us, we can not pray any more. How desperate are you? Do you still have “Capital” to invest in their game?. And as we move along, the Occupy Movement keeps growing, even if you do not see it in your silver screen.
We can not turn the clock back but we can help others to wake up, your compassion is guiding you to lead our society to a more humane society, where Truth, Justice and Peace are the Pillars that support us and make our journey easy to navigate to a simpler society where Love is what move us to fight for us, for you, for them for our Blue Dot, our Mother Earth.
And the twist keeps getting closer to home.
Then they came for the middle class but I did not speak out because I was not part of the middle class, and I let them destroy the buffer zone of our economy.
Then They Came for the poor and I did not speak out because I was not poor, and I let them starve them to death, unable to pay their medical bills, unable to educate their children and they converted them in drug addicts, street gangsters and thugs, and they destroyed the left over of the sweet hard masses working class that was supporting the Our Nation On Their Shoulders.
Then they came for the homeless, and I did not speak out because I was not homeless.
Then we all became homeless, right-less, vulnerable to a police-state-Fascist- like society that wants to put us in concentration camps for complaining of our misery. Fools Fools we let them destroy Our American Dream.
Join Us all to into this Incredible Invisible Revolution that is making waves in the consciousnesses of every soul/mind/spirit that it is open to a change.
Remember The Thoughts are manifestations that want to come out to explore the third dimensional bound that keeps you from knowing how capable you are of loving one another, from exercising your compassion for every creature that exist, and with that, brake free to a new world order, where Love is abundant and free to give.
Do not allow the structured social/economical chaos to stop you from freeing yourself and help others.
Stay Human, Peace Be Upon You and Bless All Men of Good Will.
Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat….. Excerpt from V for Vendetta
Take what it is ours, softly move the wrath of oppression to the sides, do not stumble on violence, is not the way, move ahead to the next evolutionary level of our society. Do it with love.
Love can move mountains, love and compassion can unite us all. Peace To All.
If I m able to preach love and feel that is possible to change my world for a better one then I m in Love with my world, and you are part of my world. Help me to help you, Help you To Help Us All. I can not do without you, because I m part of you, and you are part of me. We are One. Remember!, One Creation!, One Family on Earth!.
Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy Name,
Forgive our trespasses that same way that you forgive us, do not allow us to become numb with injustice.
Give us strength to maintain our focus on what it is important in our lives. Do not allow father that destruction of our Earth, the war waste is polluting every green land, river and tree.
Stop the lunatics war makers, that are corrupting every mind and heart on Earth.
Take away greed to the heavens, and transform into into compassion and make it to rain on every spot on earth.
Take away hate from the hearts of every men and fill it with love and light to make Love not War any more.
Forgive our sins, and accept our deeds as a token of peace. Peace Be On Earth and Above the Sea, under the Sky and in every heart that be.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Outstanding Human Beings
Every Person once in his/her life get touched by compassion, this feeling that it’s impossible to describe only can be felt. Love make miraculous manifestations in the life of individuals. Everyone that got involved some how in the peace process of our earth have felt it, the strike of light that it is leading us to a new road of understanding, of unity, where we all are awakening to our humanity.
We do not need to be heroes to act in our own behalf, because every deed we make in the name of Truth, Justice and Peace is for us all humans that share this beautiful blue dot of the Universe.
If you get the urge to help in any way, don’t waste that urge as time is running fast, and more you wait more damage is made against your brothers. We are an army of compassionate being, and we can achieve wonders if we unite for a common goal. There are special souls in this earth that are dedicating their entire existence to peace. Huwaida Arraf is one of those cases, she along with Ken O’keefe, Vittorrio Arrigoni RIP, Adam Shapiro, Rachel Corrie RIP, Patrick Macmanus RIP and thousands of others that crossed the world to go to Palestine to help in their struggles, they are not the only ones, but their deeds, their work make them outstanding individuals. The great nation of Palestine is a great example for us to follow, they all lived inside the storm of the occupation.
Life is short inside the occupied territories, as life is risky but if you follow your heart the risk is worth it. Stay Human is what we need to be an activists for Truth, Justice and Peace and to help Liberate Palestine. Remember the most powerful weapon is our humanity
Huwaida Arraf is a first-generation Palestinian- American. She was born and raised in Detroit, MI. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in 1998 with majors in Political Science, Arabic and Hebrew & Judaic Studies.

With other Palestinian and international activists, she co-founded the International Solidarity Movement in April, 2001. In April 2002, as Israeli forces continued their siege on the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, Huwaida led a group of international activists to the Church to deliver bread and food to people trapped in the Church. She was arrested by the Israeli Army and forced to leave the country. She returned a month later and resumed her organizational role with the ISM. Huwaida has been arrested over a dozen times over the past four years by the Israeli military for nonviolent protest in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. In addition, Huwaida co-edited Peace under Fire (2004), a collection of personal accounts of ISM volunteers published by Verso Books.
Huwaida recently graduated from American University’s Washington College of Law. She is married to fellow human rights activist, Adam Shapiro.

Free Gaza Movement - Since August 2008, the Free Gaza Movement has sailed from Cyprus to the Gaza Strip on several successful voyages, bringing in international witnesses to see first hand the devastating effects of Israeli violence against the Palestinian people. Ours are the first international boats to journey to Gaza since 1967.
We are Italian, Irish, Canadian, Greek, Tunisian, German, Australian, American, English, Scottish, Danish, Israeli, and Palestinian. We are of all ages and backgrounds. We have years of experience volunteering in Gaza and the West Bank at the invitation of Palestinians. But now, because of the increasing stranglehold of Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, many of us find it almost impossible to enter Gaza, and an increasing number have been refused entry to Israel and the West Bank as well.
We want to break the siege of Gaza. We want to raise international awareness about the prison-like closure of the Gaza Strip and pressure the international community to review its sanctions policy and end its support for continued Israeli occupation. We want to uphold Palestine’s right to welcome internationals as visitors, human rights observers, humanitarian aid workers, journalists, or otherwise.

And we are taking in consideration the double standards of the body of Shame that the world have suffered since 1945 when its charter was officially signed, but the real world mess started back in 1916 when a few globalists decided to formed what was known as the League of NATIONS. Which is the same clown with different make up.
In September, 1916, Robert Cecil, a member of the British government, wrote a memorandum where he argued that civilization could survive only if it could develop an international system that would insure peace.
We have to give ourselves a pad on the back to the citizenry of the world that by our resistance to the take over and annihilation of our human race we have survived against the organized powers of the War Complex Machine, do not let yourself fool that the regional conflicts staged by the Mafia War around every country in the globe was to bring peace or harmony. Every conflict ever suffered for a group of people, towns, city, country, or continent was always brought upon the people by the same powers that praise themselves to be the saviors, but in the back of the stage they have been brewing the plots to kill the resistance, to kill the dreams of freedom, or independence or and most of the time merely the dreams to live a simple life without the burden of the “Civilized World” as did happen to every indigenous group in the world.
Fools Fools all the armies in the world that lend themselves to raise their hands against their brothers, their sisters, their mothers, their fathers, their land. Fools all the minds that with their soft talking and speeches instill the seed of violence in weak peoples minds. Fools all the people that let themselves be pawns of the Selfish, gluttony of the Mafia Wars. We will be FOOLS if we don’t ACT.
Have you seen your backyard? full of thorns, ravaged by wars, chaos fueled by invented religious conflicts that do not exist but in the flashing silver screen of your TV Set and your History books. There is no such religious intolerance in our world. That was hatched down from some clever evil minds, and fueled by the weakness of the simple people’s mind. All the rhetoric used against us, the ordinary citizens of the world.
We have been played out since immemorial times and time and time again, the resilient force of the people to survive have save us of complete annihilation, Resisting the most cruel forces our world has raised to see. Every time the People have won against their oppressors, their tormentors. Even with the blood shed that our world has seen at the end, we have won every battle, because always the seeds of deception have been exposed.
We can glorify our generals of war, the Presidents, dictators or any official character ever been in power in our History books, but the Heroes that made possible the survival of the race throughout the resistance are the ones that will survive time, and their memories will live forever. We own to them that we still exist. The Seed that was planted in human hearts is compassion, that can not be lost to a bullet, can not be lost in time. We win every time that we survive a battle. The resistance is the wheels that hold our world from being stopped.
We see now ourselves again in the verge of annihilation and again like a bad dream we are waking up to recognize the deception, and we are uniting as a great force against this Monster that have poisoned the minds of few generations, The Zionist Movement Globalist-Elitist Group that sprout like a poison Evvy hydra around the world is watching its demise thru Israel spoil child, that with her tantrums fooled the world for 60 years. But the real culprits the ones that raised this little monster that used the people’s hearts, with victimization of their own race, and portraying a religious intolerance that really never existed but in the books and the TV.
The ones still under the spell of the Zionist Power will realize sooner than later how foolish they were. There is no surprise that great number of Israel own citizens are backing up the Palestinian Resistance, and there is no crime in doing so, because once again the People is raising against the oppressor. There is no crime in dissenting the ugliness of the State of Israel dress up as a sheep, we all can hear the howls of the wolf, we can be fool one time, but not all the time.
Israel abused the leverage she had on the world, and played with the intellect of the people for long time, and she created her own destruction. Israel is dying and swimming in her own mud of deception and lies. She can not control the PR Propaganda any longer, is too late to savage her theater of powerful bully. What it took Israel 63 years to built with Lies and Deceit. The Gaza Strip Illegal and Inhumane siege has to be remember by the Zionist as the spot in the mirror that blur the fake glory of Israel, the 4 years of siege imposed in Gaza Population showed to the world what a sadistic minds were behind Israel creation and imposition to the world.
The own backers of this monster the United Nations Club can not look the other way, when the world is forcing them to do their job, at least in paper, but these reports on the erratic behavior of Israel will be the ones that officially will take her to the bench to respond for her crimes.
In the light of resolution S-9 adopted by the Human Rights Council at its ninth special session,
this report focus on the main international law and human rights issues raised by Israel military
operations commencing on 27 December 2008 and ending on 18 January 2009. It challenges the
widespread emphasis on whether Israeli force was ‘disproportionate’ in relation to Palestinian
threats to Israeli security, and focuses on the prior question as to whether Israeli force was
legally justified at all. It concludes that such recourse to force was not legally justified given the
circumstances and diplomatic alternatives available, and was potentially a crime against peace.

The Representative of this Body of Shame can pretend doing their job and Israel can even laugh at what she thinks is another blow to our Intelligence, but we are all taking note and getting together. The impunity can not last much longer that it has.
We seen millions of people adding themselves to the resistance to the destructive forces. Do not let yourselves be convinced that Resistance to the war is a crime, don’t be fooled to believe that dissenters are criminals. We all are one voice against violence, against intolerance, against hate, against the Status Quo that was sold to us.
The moment has come to stand up against the enemies of peace. We all want peace. We are fighting against the War. The only enemies of the People are the armies that are brain washed. The soldiers that are thought to fight us, when in reality they are fighting against them selves. Because they are pawns in the game. They are defending the king that do not care for them, and without blinking an eye, the king will sacrifice 6.5 billions souls to himself, even if he knows that he will be the only survivor. What a shame. Forfeit your game, get out while you can. Save yourself, and by doing so, you safe your family, and your world.
Do not allow to be the pawn any more. You are human, forget the tactics of war, that taught you to obey without thinking. You are human and you deserve also to live in peace. All the world in these critical moments are taking charge of our destinies. You see it, be alive to live it.
The Jasmine Revolution is not an accident in time, or the Egyptian Revolution is not the continuation of the people madness, but the contrary, that was the beginning of the global awareness, that is sweeping our world. How many more brothers we want to see death before we all WAKE UP once and for all. How many more Earth destruction we want to see before we all STAND UP FOR US.
Israel may think she is winning this battle, she is wrong. She already LOST. And you saw it in the NEWS..running around like a little brat, making tantrums calling the attention of the people, but no one listen to her anymore. Only the numb and deaf few leaders that think that they will hold to the chair. They also are digging their graves. Do you really think that Greek Prime Minister will survived and stay in power? Absolutely not..according to the NEWS:
Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou survived a confidence vote in parliament early Wednesday, winning a gamble on his government’s survival and the danger of a devastating debt default that could spark a financial maelstrom around the world.
Papandreou had called the vote, which passed early Wednesday morning, to face down an internal party revolt and help him pass deeply disliked austerity measures that have provoked strikes, protests and a slump in his popularity.
Lawmakers voted 155-143 for the motion, with two abstentions in the 300-member legislature, sticking strictly to party lines after a heated debate that saw sections of the opposition briefly walk out of the chamber.
Outside, several thousand protesters chanted “Thieves! thieves!” and other anti-austerity slogans, shining green laser lights at the parliament building and into the eyes of riot police protecting it.
Do you really think that even this vote of “Confidence” that he won will apace the people outside? Do you really think that the storm that The Greek government created stopping the Humanitarian Mission to Gaza flotillas will end up just there with a few protests. NO! NO!, is the beginning of the end. Seems that another head is about to fall. The invisible revolution is taking shape stronger by the minute.
Do you wonder WORLD!, why Israel was running around sending memorandums, sabotaging the flotillas, sending fake reports, I mean all the trickery that Israel knows, she used them all at once, when she knew that she could not do the same as last time. So she thought that cleaning her hands will save her from the shame.
Wrong again, this just prove again how low the State of Israel has fallen if it could have been lower. Allow me to laugh. Now she is seeing her being laugh of, is as if the world played a bad joke on her. Because compassion of the world is something she was not thinking of it, she has no heart or think on that feeling. We Win, PALESTINE WIN AGAIN, GAZA WIN ISRAEL LOSE, just watch the unfolding of her destruction by her own hands. We the resistance win again, I know is not over yet, she will fight as a cat feet up, scratching anything and everything that cross her claws, but Israel is sinking.
Ehud Barak, Israel’s Defense Minister, on May 16. Responding to non-violent protests at Israeli borders and military posts, he said,
“The Palestinians’ transition from terrorism and suicide bombings to deliberately unarmed mass demonstrations is a transition that will present us with difficult challenges.”
Even the CIA that shadow of the world, had pronounce her death, CIA gives 20 years. LOL..that is too good to be true for Israel. I give her less than 10, her own citizens the that see the boat sinking are jumping out, they are reclaiming their second citizenship, to have it ready to flee the scene. Go Figure. And you must listen to the Shadow as is she who has been behind the deaths of more than 200 millions people around the world since its creation.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says the idea of “Greater Israel”– the main motto of the Zionist founders of the Israeli regime– is dead.
“‘Greater Israel’ is finished. There is no such thing as that anymore. Whoever talks in those terms is only deluding himself,” the prime minister admitted at a cabinet meeting. Sep 14, 2008
UN was Formed, April 25, 1945, 15 months later
CIA was Formed, September 18, 1947, And 8 months later
Israel was founded, May 14, 1948, 11 months later
NATO was created, April 4, 1949
These 4 entities since its creation they have created more terror in the world, and killed more people than the two Wars Combined.
And United States of North-America, July 4, 1776 sadly is behind all the 4..
Not all the leaders are numbed by the sickness of corruption, fear, greed and power some have stood up against the giants adding their efforts to that of the People.
Audacity of Hope” bound for Gaza early Saturday, July 2. The boat was stopped at gunpoint by the Greek coast guard Friday, July 1, and forced to move to a Military Compound in Athens. Below is her statement.
It was truly inspirational for me to speak to the people at the Boat who had just been faced with death if they would not turn back to port as ordered by the Greek Military. I managed to speak to many of the people on board who were shaken by the events the night before. Despite the setback, all of them felt determined to carry on with the mission of aid and solidarity with the people suffering in Gaza.
This project is the embodiment of hope and it is a powerful attempt to expose the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. At the boat I met people of all ages, backgrounds and colors. All of them had in common a beautiful and strong urge to take selfless action for the greater good of humanity.

We only have one hope to save ourselves once again. STAY HUMAN.
THE NEW KIDS IN THE BLOCK
I AM A LIGHT WORKER
Have you notice that the last 2 generations have arrived with a distictive view of the world, they seem smartest if you will. We can not blind ourselves to the reality, the Elite have worked hard to stop the the wave of awakening souls, the gaming and movie industry did arduous job for the last 20 years or so to keep our kids busy, and the drugs sprout like weed in our society, it was not a coincidence that this happened to our world. We are for a change, it was due.
Indoctrination is not that easy any more, religion is loosing the grip, they hold on us for more than 2000 years. Is not easy any more, the new kids ask questions and they demand answers, but not just any answer they are determined to get the truth, and believe me there is nothing hardest than trying to hide the truth.
More you try more the truth try to surface.
You don’t have to believe me, we are for a change and is coming to you also, like a beautiful sunny day.
The light is almost here, let it in…. be a light worker.
The Indigo Kids are the New Kids in the Block.
they are not sick, they don’t have ADD -Attention Deficit Disorder is a misdiagnosis for the advance kids in our society that don’t fit
in the mass of fit kids, This kids are too smart to follow the educational system that they feel entrap them. The need to be challenge, but our system is not prepare for this wave of new kids, so they separated , they drugged them and they got rid of them. But they are too much to handle, they are opening the door by themselves.
