Water management not Carbon Tax


by Marivel Guzman

Global water management not Carbon Tax is what will take world leaders to save  humanity from a catastrophe; at least some pockets of it.

I’m not scientist but my common sense tells me all this “climate change scenario,” has nothing to do the political global warming rhetoric and everything to do with water management and deforestation–Considering the fact that earth is a live organism, that is suffering from “dry surface syndrome,” –I coined this term to explain earth needs of water replenishment. Earth is doing what every organism will do to survive; Earth is melting its continental ice sheets to make up for the disruptions of the natural rivers flood and permanent damage done by the construction of dams. Just California has 241 dams disrupting the ecosystem.

Last February Oroville Dam had a rip in its spillway system that send almost 200,000 residents to evacuate their homes. The Oroville Dam is one of the 5 biggest dams in California. Dams is another them altogether but definitively needs to be address when we talk about climate change.

Mine is only speculation out of common sense but the next paragraph is a perfect scientific scenario published in Athropolis “If the Arctic ice cap (of which the Greenland ice sheet is a major part) was to melt and disintegrate, the consequences would be catastrophic. Think of the ice as a giant white reflector – with no ice to reflect sunlight and heat in the summer, the entire radiation balance of the Earth would change.

This would lead to changes in heating patterns… which would change ocean currents in the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans… which would then alter the ocean circulation systems that transfer heat and minerals around the planet.”

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out this. Although I do not deny climate change, I do not believe that politicians are taking the right approach to avoid a catastrophe. I do believe lobbying companies are paying scientists to manipulate data. I believe that some of the data published in the last 25 years was manipulated by the people behind the movie “Inconvenient Truth” to sell us the carbon tax.

I also believe our climate change has more to do with the rivers, oceans and deforestation and less to do with pollution.

“Amazon: Lungs of the planet. The Amazon in South America is the largest, most diverse tropical rainforest on Earth, covering an area of five and a half million square kilometres (2.1 million sq mi). BBC, said in its Nov 2014 article Future.,

Earth Journalism Networks said that the oceans are also the lungs of the planet, but scientists rarely say it, ” Oceans: The planet’s forgotten lungs.”

“That same concern today moved to the estate of the “climate summit” to mark the Action Day, which formed the oceans main part of the exhibits to be considered “the largest and most important ecosystem protect”. Why it is important? Yolanda Kakabadse, President of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) explains it perfectly: “Instead of talking about Earth, we should call it Planet Ocean. If the oceans were a country, they would be the world’s seventh largest economy”.

Oceans produce between 50 and 80% of oxygen and consume more than 25% of carbon dioxide (CO2) of the planet. That is, as we had anticipated conservationist and primatologist Jane Goodall, along with forests, one of the main ecosystems of which depends on human and animal life. But unfortunately, in both cases the negative action of man is greatly affecting their conservation.

If you trap the water responsable for the ocean currents and cut all the trees what do you expect will happen to earth?

Next time that that you hear climate change think on how you can change your print on the planet.

 

President Trump versus the media


By Marivel Guzman

In the long run the relation of the President Trump with the press can erode to the point to become a dictatorship right in front of our eyes.

President Trump disregards the press as dishonest. It seems obvious that President Donald Trump wants to delegitimize the media and has being doing it so diligently, making it appear as a harmless game, but in reality Trump is pushing the media out of the White House. He easily refers to media as fake news, not even allowing the reporters that question his actions as our president to speak up. This undermines the role of media in our democracy. By doing this, reporters he chastises are silenced and essentially invisible.

Not only does President Trump undermine the role of media, but with his use of his personal Twitter account as a medium to release information related to his activities as a commander in chief, he bypasses the media and acts his own spokesperson, even. He breaks a traditional flow of communication around the White House and this behavior has his advisers trying to find a loophole in the security apparatus of the presidency in their attempts to excuse Trump’s disregard for the rules in place for a sitting president. For example, traditionally the White House Press Secretary’s primary role is to act as spokesperson for the president. The Press Secretary tells the public what the president is doing, and reporters get to ask questions about it. President Trump’s constant Tweeting does not allow for this regularity, making it difficult at best, if not impossible, for his own spokesperson to do his job.

Also, Trump is attacking TV networks calling them “dishonest” and “FAKE NEWS” at every opportunity he has. Trump has developed the mania to call TV networks dishonest if they do not broadcast news favorable to him.

His first tantrum against the media as Commander in Chief was the day of his inauguration as the 45th president; CNN and Vox published photos side by side of Obama 2008 inauguration with Trump 2017 inauguration, showing a much larger crowd for Obama’s inauguration. This photo got Trump so mad that he called National Park Service, upset over the inauguration crowd.

According to ABC, “President Donald Trump called the National Park Service’s acting director the morning after his inauguration to express displeasure over a retweet of inauguration crowd photos from the agency’s official account, according to the White House.” To put the “rumors” to rest, President Trump, had a photo by Abbas Shirmohammadi, who had been involved in creating images of presidential inaugural since former President Ronald Reagan, placed in the upper/lower press hall.

By replacing inauguration day photos to glamourize his own popularity, he is manipulating public perception, which is something dictators have been known to do.

 

” The easiest way to control a person’s thoughts is when s/he is afraid. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was well-aware of this fact when he cautioned Americans, “The only thing to fear is fear itself”. We have seen the awful repercussions of the Red Scare here in America. However, the most severe evidence of thought control through fear tactics comes from Nazi Germany.” Excerpt from Sierra Martinez’s essay,  June 3, 2003, Stanford University

Trump seems obsessed with tweeting his news directly to his followers. It is unorthodox that a sitting president tweets information rather than allows his press secretary to speak directly with the press in case there are questions that need to be answered.

In his final press conference Obama defended the role of the press and he joked a little bit with them. Obama maintained a cordial relationship with the press because he understood that the press is the only one that can demand accountability from the White House.

 

He said, “You’re not supposed to be sycophants, you’re supposed to be skeptics, you’re supposed to ask me tough questions,”

Remember the press is the watchdog that keeps an eye on the government

Are Whistleblowers heroes or traitors?


By Marivel Guzman

Patriots and heroes fall in the same category; a patriot is a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors. And a hero is a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character.
Secrets that should not be hidden from the people. In this era of government’s secrecy, whistleblowers are patriots no less important than heroes that take the risk on their lives to expose the darkest secrets of governments. Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old former NSA technician is my favorite whistleblower and hero because his revelations have the most benefit for the people not just in the US but for the whole world.
Snowden’s Twitter’s status says in few words his motivations to expose
the NSA’s spying program.

He told the Guardian he worked for a major U.S. government contractor in Hawaii, earning a six-figure salary and enjoying the scenic state with his girlfriend. And he chose to leave everything behind to alert the public of the massive government surveillance program.
Snowden said that governments should be a transparent agency that work for the people and should be accountable and hiding secrets is not the best way to serve the people.
He is a hero in all the extension of the word and he should to be protected, defended, and supported for what they endeavor; in doing so, we will be defending ourselves, our privacy, security and most importantly defending our constitutional rights that, ultimately, are the only protection we have.
Some of Snowden’s leaks suggested the NSA had misled Congress about the scope of its domestic spying activities.

In a Senate hearing, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied when asked if NSA collects information on Millions of Americans. We only know that NSA spy on all of us thanks to Snowden’s revelations.
Now we know better not to say things in the phone that can be heard by prying ears.
Julian Assange, editor of WikiLeaks, although not a whistleblower in my opinion is an extraordinary journalist who has tasked himself with serving as a vehicle for whistleblowers to leak governments’ secrets and publish them WikiLeaks.
Recently President Donald Trump said the government will prosecute those who leak government secrets, in my opinion Trump is trying to instill fear in journalists, not only on whistleblowers.
Remember it was the New York Times who revealed the Pentagon Papers and The Guardian that published Snowden’s revelations.

At one point Director of National Intelligence Mike Pompeo called for Snowden execution, “He should be brought back from Russia and given due process, and I think that the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence for having put friends of mine, friends of yours, in the military today, at enormous risk because of the information he stole and then released to foreign powers.”

I believe whistleblowers feel people deserve to know the truth, even as the government hides and denies the facts. Whistleblowers put their lives at risk for the sake of other people making more informed decision, which is an heroic act.

Get off the bandwagon

Sac State students vented their fears and dissatisfaction with the latest incidents of police brutality and murders of African American in different parts of the country. Faculty, Staff also attended the event. Sacramento, Calif. Sept. 22. (Marivel Guzman)

I chose the photo above to give you an idea of how an organic protest  looks like. Nobody is throwing chairs around, or  insulting each other. Nobody is using incendiary material or being disrespectful to students, faculty or staff.

What you have seen on national television relating to the latest violent protests after Nov. 8 elections, are not organic protest but organized by elements  of our society that want to create fear between the population.

What you see on television does not reflects the present state of our country but groups of people easily managed to be enraged by emails being sent by MoveOn.org, Jewisch Voice For Peace, Courageous Resistance,  and other organizations behind Clinton’s agenda.

I refused to accept or follow the fear incitement campaign started by left-wing elements of the democratic party in association with mainstream media and financed by corrupt money.

The same way that righ-wing people and organizations are branded  right-wing by their radical leaning to the right and yes, but their disregard of the views and interests not aligned with their ideas and agendas–the left which for years have been nested inside the democratic party for being progressive and liberal, now days, it has fell in the same category of radicalism and fundamentalism, where is their agenda which only matters.

They have proven not to care for people  and I’m talking about the Democrats, they become too cozy with the  profits they gained from the corporate world.

The establishment refused to persecute Hillary Clinton. They kept looking in the wrong emails’s batch. Why not used Wiki-Leaks emails. Assange put them in a silver plate for the FBI and the District Attorney.

The New World Order’s ideas were brewing inside the corrupt Democratic Party heavily financed by the banking, arms, pharmaceutical, energy conglomerate, and shamelessly by foreign powers as well. Those NWO’s ideas wanted to take United States to World War Three.

Hillary Clinton was so fired up to declare war with Russia and attack Iran, all for her obsession in defending Israel’s security. Wouldn’t an American public official be more interestd in defending the right of the American people, our economy, our security and not being waging war defending Israel’s security, which it a foreign nation that only get us enenmies.

Why is the media cheering for the Soros -incitement “protests”?

Are you fueling fire for a violent revolution?

The billionaires club profit from revolts; big and smalls. They do not care if you become homeless, refugee or if you die. Either way they [corporate magnates] will make money building weapons, homes or caskets, and even will make money with television adds broadcasting the American Revolution.

Why is people jumping in the bandwagon of discord?

The electoral college is the way our democracy system works, deal with it.

Before I pronounced my next statement, let me make clear that I’m independent, that Voted for Jill Stein. Saying that, I feel more comfortable writing the following.

Unfortunately a big number of the American people voted for the lesser evil, and what is done is done. Donald Trump won the elections and we must work united to defend our republic, from him, or from who ever want to take our constitution rights from us.

We have the Constitution to protect and to protect us. We won’t allow the president to take us  backwards in our victories in the Supreme Court, but we cannot defend our rights destroying public property, attacking the police and simply yelling in the streets.

Not even trying to reverse the electoral college. Only because Hillary Clinton did not win. At least not a day after the elections and not through violence.

Organize and work in your districts. Make your council members accountable for their mischief as public officials. Force them to come clean with the deals they make behind doors with corporations before they sign bills.
Get involve in the political system of the country, inform yourself in the mechanisms of local, state and federal laws and politics.

If you invest the energy you are spending being mad in the political process, we can move forward and demand from Trump a different administration away from the corrupt one you know.

Trump is not more powerful than our Constitution.

“We have to remember that we’re actually all on one team…We are not Democrats first, we’re not republican first, we are American first.

We’re patriots first. We all want what’s best for this country.” Barrack Obama addressed the nation, a day after the elections, on Nov. 9.

The Jewish settlers and Israel as a matter of policy condoning-violence-policy is to be blamed


Ethnically Cleansed Palestinian Refugees on their way to Lebanon, October, 1948. photo/Palestine remembered

This article was written to respond to Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic: The Paranoid, Supremacist Roots of the Stabbing Intifada, where he said his version of the story going back to 1920 through 2015: Palestinian leaders incite violence now as they did in 1920.
The current stabbing Intifada taking place in Palestine he said a quasi-uprising in which Palestinians have been trying, and occasionally succeeding, to kill Jews with knives. Goldberg should know that the definition of Intifada is uprising. He used Intifada as part of the name of the article and then he calls the intifada quasi-uprising. Mr Goldberg, it is an intifada or is not.
Well he goes to blame the current situation to the leaders of Palestine for the anger that is uncontrollable and has been displaced by the Palestinian youth mostly in recent incidents. Worth mentioning that only part of the stabbings did really happened as published by Palestinian news and other outlets, the rest of the Palestinians killed have been staged by  the settlers filled with their common hate for any Arab; Christian or Muslim. And even there is an incident that a settler confused the darker skin of an individual for Palestinian and it was a Jew.  Last Thursday, The New York Post said that 31 Palestinians were killed recently from which only, 14 were recognized as attackers, according to mathematics the other 17 were indeed executed
Anyway, going back to Goldberg’s article, he goes on saying that violence, “is prompted in good part by the same set of manipulated emotions that sparked the anti-Jewish riots of the 1920’s; a deeply felt desire on the part of the Palestinians to “protect” the Temple Mount from the Jews” he said. Goldberg does not make any mention of the thousands of settlers and IOF incidents of unprovoked attacks prior to this 2015 youth uprising. No, he prefers to say only what the Israel’s public loves to hear; the eternal victim-hood of the Jewish people wondering in the wilderness looking for God’s promise land; for his chosen people. Let’s forget about religion and come back to reality.
Palestinians have been living in Palestine for centuries as history records.
If you like recorded history and want to learn more about Palestine, I invite you to visit Palestine Remembered where you can watch videos of interviews from Palestinians and Jews before the creation of the political entity Israel, photos of villages all gone now, stories of battles and more.”The CORE issues of the Palestinian-Israeli are the collective dispossession and ethnic cleansing (compulsory population transfer to achieve political objectives) of the Palestinian people for the past six decades. In our opinion, the conflict would have been at the same level of intensity even if both parties had been Jewish, Muslims, or Christians. ” PalestineRemembered.com

Golberg repeats the same mantra that is being distributed by the Streaming Media: “Netayahu has said that the State of Israel is not trying to change the Status Quo.”

But what is the “Status Quo”?

The State of Israel is not “officially” promoting settler violence but it is permitting the violence with the protection of the IOF and Israeli security forces allowing settlers to attack worshipers and allowing the settlers to enter Al-quds with shoes (Muslims need to remove their shoes and wash their feet before entering a mosque) to vandalize inside the mosque.
If Netayahu means he is not going to change the Status Quo then:
What is the Status Quo in Jerusalem and in the rest of the occupied territories?
Occupation of Territories is the Status Quo?
Are check points the Status Quo?
“Each checkpoint looks like a military zone, consisting of a guard tower, a pedestrian waiting area, and two car lanes: one with a long wait for Palestinian cars and a special open car lane for Israeli cars. ” Electronic Intifada 2004
Palestinian Muslim males over 45 not allow to enter Jerusalem.

The South Africa pass laws implemented in Israel are kicking and running. Palestinians need to secure a permit to move around the occupied territories. If Israel feels like it, it won’t grant a permit.

Palestinians are not allowed to freely move in Palestine at all. Shuhada Street in Hebron is one of the best examples of living under a military dictatorship occupation. Shuhada Street is close for Palestinians but Jews can freely walk and harass the Palestinians residents that live on Shuhada street but need to leave their homes thru a hole on the roof.
Jerusalem is only open on Friday and males 55+, women 45+ after IOF clearance.
People living in Gaza are not allow to enter West Bank at all, actually the refugee camp of Gaza is a deportation camp. Families are completely separated.

Is the #Apartheid Wall part of the Status Quo?

Palestinian protesters and IDF soldiers at the beginning of the weekly protest near Bil’in. The apartment houses of Modi’in Ilit can be seen in the distance. March 30 2013 (photo: Noam Sheizaf)

Do allowing the settlers and sometimes IOF escorting them to harass farmers during their work in the field the Status Quo?
Do allowing the settlers to harass women in their way to the market the Status Quo?
Do allowing the settlers to harass children in their way from and to school the Status Quo?
Do allowing the settlers to burn thousands of olive trees every year the Status Quo?
Are the demolitions of Palestinian homes, separation and forced eviction of Palestinians part of the Status Quo?
Are the separate roads for settlers and Palestinian part of the Status Quo?
Is the killing of youth rather than access to courts the Status Quo?
Is the harassment of the children of Palestine in the middle of the night to take their photos part of the Status Quo?
Is the confiscation of Palestinian land for “security reason” and part of the Status Quo?
And also do not forget that the violence is not only in Jerusalem but in all the occupied territories including the modern concentration camp of Gaza which has been blocked from the rest of the world for almost 10 years.
So, people do not swallow the pill that this is a religious war, is not.Goldberg makes an excellent surgical extraction of the truth to portray the Israel’s side of the story.
For people that only follows the main stream media news, Goldberg’s piece is an excellent source to stay uninformed, misinformed and with this stripping Palestinian of all their humanity and right to fight for their existence in the only way they know; throwing rocks and now using kitchen knives.
Remember Israel has tanks, F16s, Apache Helicopters, Drones, War ships to attack Gaza, in other words Israel has all the defense gadgets and Palestinians has none but stones and knives. The fact that Palestine has been invaded many times in history does not mean it did not exist before United Nations decided to partition the land in 1947. It does not means either that the violence started on 1947.  It only means that Palestinians have been peaceful people that never wonder outside of their land, they have been farmers and shepherds, not conquerors.Further reading    Survey of Palestine by British Mandate 1200 pages report includes 1917-1945

The Holocaust Card always handy


by Marivel Guzman

"Use of the swastika by Nazism is linked to the fact that it is a strong symbol, seductive and captivating look. In this sense, served the purposes of Nazi propaganda appeal to the masses"

Two important meanings to the direction of rotation of the swastika. Benign sense counterclockwise, luck. Sense evil time, chance. “Use of the swastika by Nazism is linked to the fact that it is a strong symbol, seductive and captivating look. In this sense, served the purposes of Nazi propaganda appeal to the masses” desconstruindo-o-nazismo.blogspot.com

 

“The world’s most wanted Nazi criminal, Adolf Eichmann’s second hand-in-command, died four years ago in Syria at the age of 98, the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Sunday, citing the testimony of a former German secret service agent deployed in the Middle East,” says The Times of Israel.

How the Simon Wiesenthal Center got a hold of that secret agent’s testimony?

Things are not going as planned with ISIS and the agenda to depose Assad, the president of Syria, now, Israel has to use the holocaust card again to refresh those pitiful memories of Jews dying in concentration camps in Europe, linking Syria with the worse Nazi, what a better moment to bring up the ‘news’ of Eichmann’s ‘best man who send 128,000 Jews to the camps’. If you notice the news is not about Adolph Eichmann that man history books says was the Holocaust architect, but about Alois Brenner.

How the writer knows that Alois Brenner was “described by Eichmann as his “best man,” another question I ask. Israel seems to know the secrets of Nazi Germany!

Now, I ask the ?question, who is this ‘former German secret service agent deployed in the Middle East?’ Would this former German secret service agent be around 100-year-old by now? if he was German secret service agent during the Nazi Germany this article tries to allude, that would had been right before 1945 at the end of the WWII, also this “service agent deployed in the Middle East,” is this means, he was deployed in what is now occupied Palestine, aka Israel? ,if we make memory there was no Israel then at least not before 1945, so, where exactly in the Middle East? who were the Middle East countries allies of the enemies of Germany that needed to be spied upon? This questions bring us to this, Operation paperclip!

We have received information from a former German secret service agent who had served in the Middle East who said that Brunner was dead and buried in Damascus,” Zuroff told The Sunday Express on Sunday.

“Given his age it would not be surprising and the information came from someone who we consider reliable.”

 

We should consider unreliable any information coming out of the Zionist Entity.

 

Suastica Symbol

Suastica Symbol

In 1945, Operation Overcast (renamed Operation Paperclip for the paper clips attached to the dossiers of the most “troublesome cases”) began, says Annie Jacobsen.
Jacobsen says, that more than 1,600 Germans were secretly recruited to develop armaments “at a feverish and paranoid pace that came to define the Cold War.
“Although some of these men had been Nazi Party members, SS officers and war criminals, they were valued as vital to American national security.” by Annie Jacobsen in an article written for the New York Times, on Feb, 28, 2014

If Israel is the sacrosanct ally of the United States, and Israel exist because of the U.S., this means that part of these 1600 Nazi members of the S.S were working directly with and for Israel.
Now, going back to Syria, ISIS and the whole mess in the Middle East, why the Simon Wiesenthal Center comes out with this “news” that first and all it is 4 years old, how is that when Syria is in turmoil the news is available?
Like a said, do not believe anything that comes out of Holocaust, Inc.
Marissa Newsman, the writer of this opinion piece made sure to name in the first paragraph Adolf Eichmann, the bogie man of Nazi Germany, even though this article is about Alois Brunner.
In a review in amazon.com for the Memories of Simon Wiesenthal, Scamp Lumm writes the following

Simon Wiesenthal, the most famous Nazi war criminals’ most successful tracker, even managed to find the SS agent who arrested Anne Frank in Amsterdam. I’ve just read how he trailed Joseph Menegele, the malevolent experimental doctor of Auschwitz, to the outposts of Paraguay. He was never apprehended….”

 

Now I ask, how a concentration camp survivor that has lost everything, properties, family, money finds the resources to become Nazi Criminal tracker?
What’s so amazing to me is Wiesenthal’s outlook despite having lost everything, and especially family members, he wasn’t motivated by hate or revenge in the work he did hunting for Nazis, says Scamp Lumm

The Holocaust Industry written by Norman  Finkelnstain can give you more light on the exploitation of the Jews that died during the WWII.

“The Double Shakedown, in which I documented the Holocaust industry’s blackmail of European governments in the name of “needy Holocaust victims” and then the shakedown of Holocaust victims by the Jewish organizations that pocketed the “Holocaust compensation” monies. Norman Finkelnstein

Gaza 50 days War: Hamas’s Return Ticket to the Middle East

Hamas military wing resistance fighters

Hamas military wing resistance fighters

October 19, 2014(Tehran, Iran)-After many ups and downs across the Rafah border and early the return of Hamas’s ideological father (Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood) to the pages of history and consequently Hamas’s confusion against the region’s balance in that juncture, most experts acknowledged that this movement had stepped into a period of weakness and even annihilation in its history as political force. The unexpected departure from Syria of the leadership of Hamas, and its turn to the political-ideological front of traditional compromising states in the region, including; Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, etc. from the one hand and Israelis’ spreading “red carpets” to this movement including suppling of cement and drinking water to Gaza Strip, giving more concessions to Gaza’s fishermen. besides, some of Israeli political and military officials comments like the Northern command on preferring Hamas over other factions in Gaza, this caused the future of the resistance in the region  to be added to the other multiple puzzles in the Middle East.There is the possibility that many of the experts do not have any information about the military capabilities of Hamas or they have neglected it, because in the afore-mentioned juncture authentic news were broadcast about strained relations between Hamas and the Islamic Republic of Iran and even the two sides confirmed it. Therefore, very few people were thinking about the fact that in the very juncture, political and military deals were running between Iran-Syria and Hamas and even the political crisis I Egypt and Iran-Hamas disputes behind the doors had made the Zionists neglect the arms transfer to Gaza.Now, after the Zionists’ invasion of Gaza, the Resistance Faction’s advanced arms and offensive-defensive systems are conspicuously visible. In this regard, chief of Hamas’s foreign relations, Osama Hamdan remarks that the Resistance is of the readiness to continue the war for months even if Hams is the initiator of the next war with the purpose of taking the occupied territories out of the claws of the Zionists.

In fact what is currently going on about Hamas can be mentioned as a tangible example of turning a threat into an opportunity. Gaza war took place under the circumstances where Hamas was held accountable by the Iranian and Syrian public opinions and elites for its performance about Syrian and Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt. Therefore, since Hamas was aware of its defensive and arms advances, it was waiting for a chance to see its flag once again at the hands of the Resistance supporters in the region. Now, one can acknowledge that once again this flag has become an identity-constructing one and maybe it is for this reason that Hamas is not keen on putting an end to the war.

This hypothesis seems to be true for 5 reasons:

Stop of Israel-Hamas serial wars
Both Palestinian and Zionist analysts are of the belief that Israel-Hamas wars have been like a never-ending series and will continue as episodes. The time and place and characters change, but according to the definition of episode “place and time of the characters change, but the players and the main subject do not change.” Now, the place of war has been shifted from air to land and the characters from the air force to the land force. So, knowing this, Hamas is going to have more interventions in the scenario of the war of 2014 in order to write its script for its favor.
Change in the intervals of upcoming wars from short to long

Hamas is going to prolong the average interval of its wars against the Zionists from a couple of years to a decade at least. The war of 2008, Gaza siege in 2010 and the war of 2012 and also the recent war of 2014 are indicative of a 2 year pattern in the intervals of the cease fire which is to be changed. In the unwritten goals of the Zionist officials, the notion of a severe war against Gaza with the purpose of achieving a more prolonged peace and security had been applied which can confirm the bi-directionality of the mentioned goal.

Proof of Hamas’s development and maturity without the “assistant wheels” of other countries
Hamas is keen to show that without Syria and Egypt’s spiritual and geopolitical supports, it can continue its resistance and proceed with a draft of getting out of war without the intervention of the Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt’s new system. Of course, Hamas should know that the present and upcoming victories may once again intoxicate them and cause them to make the same mistakes as they did in the political sphere in connection with Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Hence, there is no doubt that the independence of Hamas should be the top priority of pro-resistance countries; but by the time it is fully achieved, assistant wheels should be relied on.
Finding a chance for break time in domestic sphere
Concurrent with the war of 2014, Hamas temporarily got out of the socio-economic crisis it was suffering from. Not payment of the employees’ salaries, striking growth of poverty and unemployment and Gaza people’s social dissatisfactions were among other major issues which had put Hamas in a weak position. But, now concurrent with the war, not only it is not accused as the initiator of misfortunes from the domestic and international point of view, but it is introduced as a savior.

War of 2014 as a return ticket to the region
With surprising psychological and military achievements in the war of 2014, the resistance factions have managed to get the ticket of a powerful return to the region. All in all, as expected, the war of 2014 like the previous ones turned out to be short, because in less than ten days serious proposals for cease fire were offered mediated by Egypt which were supposed to be accepted immediately by the resistance factions as in the previous wars. But we had argued that a cease fire in less than 10 days had depended on the reaction of the resistance factions and these factions seized the new chance in which there were a shortage of mediators and less pressure from the previous compromising Islamic states and thus, they prolonged the war as long as they got more concessions.

The victory of Gaza Children against IDF in 50 days Gaza-imposed-war!
Therefore, a historical victory for the resistance factions due to their steadfastness on the continuation of the war it happened and today we can see fresh eyes on Gaza after 50 days typhoon. Now we can yield and praised the victory of Gaza’s children against IDF. So the new generation of Gaza is known as the Palestine future Iron Domes.
Possibly, the next episode of the Zionists’ war against the resistance factions will take place underground, under the land of the prophets and we should wait some new defence systems by Israel as the Underground Iron Domes.

Neda Institute for Scientific Political Research was established in 1996. Due to the direct impacts of the establishment of the Israeli usurper regime on the international policies, particularly on the Middle East and the world of Islam, a group of researchers, Middle East and international relations of islam’s world followers established Neda institute and launched a new move in the developments of the region. The main object of such institute is to acquaintance with the existing political mechanisms in the Middle East as well as a deeper understanding of current social, political, cultural and economic developments of the political units in the region. According to the role and impact of the destructive policies of the holy Quds occupier regime on the countries of the region as well as on the international system, the general direction of the Neda’s activities focused on a proper and true cognition in accordance with a scientific approach to the current developments and political events in the Middle East. Thus, understanding the roots of the crisis and being familiar with the intellectual foundations of Zionism and the overt and covert advocates of Israel in the West, particularly the United States, was put on the agenda.Since then, Neda Institute has succeeded in carriying out a number of applied studies for the addressees and customers. In the light of the expertise capabilities as well as the contacts and considerable credit it has gained in the international arena, Neda Institute has achieved a special status as a professional institute.The Farsi version of this article can be found here
