Photos From Gaza

Tyler Durden's picture


Most have read about the events in Gaza over the past three days, for the most part insulated and buffered by a distance of several thousand miles and one or more oceans, from what is rapidly becoming ground zero of a new and most deadly escalation in the center of the Middle Eastern powder keg. Few, however, have witnessed and documented it quite as well as French photographer Anne Paq and her collection of photos below.

ICYMI has been good source of quality coverage. It balances out the corporate-state media.

Man is a vicious beast-  Schopenhauer.


You're lucky that  intelligent aliens (not mexicans; talking outter space aliens)  does not come in here with a lawn mover. Maybe they know that they would only waste their time exterminating us humans, and that we'll never leave this rock. They'll just watch as we consume ourselves.

Thank you, Tylers, for never ignoring the truth.

What's your take on this video?

Looks like a bit of propaganda. The weaker side can play psychological games just as stronger side can. It's one of the few weapons they have. What is your take on this:,or.r_gc...

@ Hi Ho Silver:  Yea its edited so it technically COULD have been a shot BEFORE he was being hulled away... The cut in there really erodes any credibility of what is really happening.  Thats obviously fake dead refugee children.  Man this jewl-aid tastes weird.

Hitler identified himself as a Christian.  Read a bit about it or simply look at the symbolism of the time if you have any doubt.  And if your point is that atheists have killed more people than religious types, you are simply a fool.  No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.

Stay tuned, this stuff has only been running for 236 years and has already contributed so much to humanity's progress and welfare.

Michaelwiseguy: "Palestine has a right to defend herself."

Does that include her poking (and sometimes killing) Israel's civilian population repeatedly with these incessant rocket attacks?  Is that considered 'defense?'  Or killing innocent women and children on busses - 'defense?'

two things:

Palestine is a concept, not a sex - nation's are only gendered "her" in order to rally the "hims" to fight.

the "hims" are labeled warriors, and it is the warriors who kill "innocent women and children" on ALL sides, thoughtout ALL history, on behalf of the nations, on behalf of their gods, plural.

if you truly in your heart want to stop the killing of innocents, talk to the warriors.

Hitler's private statements about Christianity were often conflicting. Hitler's intimates, such as Joseph Goebbels, Albert Speer, and Martin Bormann suggest that Hitler generally had negative opinions of Christianity, while Gen. Gerhard Engel and Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber report he was a believer.[4][5] It was Goebbels opinion that Hitler was "deeply religious but entirely anti-Christian...

 Read past the first sentence of wikipedia.  Hitler may have been raised christian, but certainly did not bear any such fruit.

Right, and Hitler's Christian Social Party only exists in the realm of Wikipedia.  Perhaps you should read beyond the first sentence of same.

What difference does it make whether he is "right" or "left"?  Do you deny that he led people under the Christian banner?   And do you deny that the Christian team has killed millions in the name of God, as have the Jews, Muslims, etc?

Good.  Back to the matter at hand.  No, I do not deny that people under the banner of all religions, as well as the religion of the lack thereof, have killed millions.  I only deny that God is on thier side.  When one is on God's side, one does not commit murder.  Or steal.  Or covet.  And so on.

Fair answer.  With that said, which government or group of humans in non-governmental form since 1 A.D. do you suppose is most righteous?

Fair question.  I suppose it would be the government which is designed to secure the rights of individual citizens.  That said, government always creeps away from freedom and towards its own ends.  Always.  It is run by imperfect men, after all.  Where do you disagree?

Non-answer.  If you can't find a single example in 2000 years, it may be time to revisit the premise.

I was thinking of the 8 or 9 years of United States between the American revolution and the whiskey rebellion.  I didn't mention it because I am more a fan of the articles of confederation than the constitution.  Now, in fairness, you also failed to answer my question.  Is it not righteous to protect individual freedom?  Besides, wouldn't it be great if each state was free to experiment, and the others could freely reject what fails and try what suceeds?  What premise do you operate on?

Sat, 11/17/2012 - 02:01 | 2991012 LetThemEatRand

I operate in a world where the answers are not written by prophets or ideologues, and where we humans realize that there are no perfect beings, answers, or systems.   

The 8 or 9 years of which you speak included slavery as a major part of the local economies of the colonies turned States.  Does that bother you or do you just wonder what kind of slave(s) Jesus would have?

Non answer.  What is your paradigm for righteous government?  By the way, It was a Virginia jury which saw a threat from free indentured servents, and under the power of said government, made servitude permanent for negroes and mulattoes.  I mentioned that a few comments ago, about how the evolution of government is always to the benefit of government.  I suspect, by the way, that Jesus would have been against such tyranny, as I would be.

Did Jesus support taking the land upon which Virginia and the United States are founded by force and violence?  Indians (feathers) hate (as you do) tyranny.

You continue to avoid the original question of what paradigm of government you consider righteous.  I answered honestly, in the interest of fair debate.  I am beginning to suspect you would rather not answer.  I'll check back in the morning.  God bless and good night.

People who think in such utterly simplistic terms as left and right are so ignorant, that they should be ignored entirely when they discuss anything relating to politics.

I gave you an up for that , I think most people have not voted on your comment is because they would have to admit to themselves that there is no left or right , and we can't be having that now can we.

All kinds of insane people claim all kinds of things, but historically you cannot define Nazism as a religious movement.  You're a politically-motivated idiot who has absolutely no understanding of history or philosophy and you're an embarassment to this site.

Atheism has always been a religion.  It is the firm believe, without any proof, that absolutly no god exist.  Not to be confused with agnostism, which states that they don't know if a god exist or not.

This drivel is the oldest and most discredited argument in the book. If I believe fairies live at the bottom of my garden and present that case to you which you chose not to believe, then the burden of proof lies 100% with me to prove to you that those fairies exist. There is no burden on you at all to find evidence to the contrary. Describing aetheism as a religion is pure desperation. When it comes to the question if god (take your pick which one of the thousands man has created) exists then I am agnostic. I am agnostic to the same degree that I am agnostic about  the fairies at the end of my garden.
