As Gaza Death Toll Surpasses 600 Israel Ambassador Says IDF Deserve Nobel Peace Prize For "Unimaginable Restraint"

Tyler Durden's picture


The situation in Gaza has crossed beyond the rabbit hole (or perhaps in this case, tunnel) and has entered the surreal zone.

Consider, from Reuters: "Israel pounded targets across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, saying no ceasefire was near as top U.S. and U.N. diplomats pursued talks on halting fighting that has claimed more than 600 lives." On the other side, Israel's military announced that the total number of army fatalities have risen to 29, three times as many as were killed in the last ground invasion of Gaza, in a 2008-2009 war.

Among the Gaza targets: five mosques, a sports stadium and the home of the deceased Hamas military chief. But why is Israel targeting what are clearly civilian locales? "Israeli military accuses Hamas militants of firing rockets from the grounds of Gaza hospitals and seeking refuge there." Remember, this was supposed to be a "pinpoint military operation."

About 2,000 rockets have been launched over the past fortnight, Israeli military says. The country has also been destroying tunnels that Hamas reportedly constructed from Gaza into Israel to carry out attacks.

Jens Laerke, spokesman of the UN Office for Humanitarian Assistance (OCHA) said at a Geneva news briefing that nearly 500 homes have been destroyed in the Israeli bombardments and 100,000 people have been displaced. Of course, if this had been any other part of the world than Gaza, the UN, the Western media and everyone else would be at arms over the humanitarian crisis that has developed in Gaza. But, well, it's Gaza.

All of this is happening despite Kerry's arrival in the region in an attemp to fix things. Or rather, due to. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held discussions in neighboring Egypt, while U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon flew to Israel to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and meet on Wednesday with the Palestinian prime minister in the occupied West Bank.

Dispatched by U.S. President Barack Obama to the Middle East to seek a ceasefire, Kerry held talks on Tuesday in Cairo with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri.


"There is a framework ... to end the violence and that framework is the Egyptian initiative," Kerry said at a joint news conference with Shukri.


"For the sake of thousands of innocent families whose lives have been shaken and destroyed by this conflict, on all sides, we hope we can get there as soon as possible," he said.

His words were summarily ignored and dismissed by Israel which has no intention of reducing the soaring body count: ""A ceasefire is not near," said Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, viewed as the most dovish member of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's inner security cabinet.  "I see no light at the end of the tunnel," she told Israel's Army Radio."

There is some good news: Kerry said the United States would provide $47 million in humanitarian aid for Gaza. He plans to stay in Cairo until Wednesday morning but has no set departure date from the region.

In other words, the latest Gaza land invasion, which is now far more deadly than the last invasion during the 2008-2009 war, is nowhere near finding a resolution, which perhaps is just the catalyst the S&P 500 needed to keep rising to recorder highs.

* * *

But where things get truly surreal, was the statement by Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, who said on Tuesday that the Israeli army should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for its “unimaginable restraint” in Gaza.

Well, considering Barack "Don't drone me, bro" Obama received it, why not?

During an address at the Christians United for Israel Summit in Washington, Dermer was interrupted several times by hecklers, but delivered a passionate and warmly received speech in defense of Operation Protective Edge, calling Iran the “Great Evil” and accusing the United Nations and human rights groups of inadvertently aiding Hamas in its war against Israel.


Some are shamelessly accusing Israel of genocide and would put us in the dock for war crimes,” Dermer said. “But the truth is that the Israeli Defense Forces should be given the Nobel Peace Prize… a Nobel Peace Prize for fighting with unimaginable restraint.”


Dermer’s comments followed a statement issued by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, who on Sunday said that the IDF is the “most humane and bravest army in the world.”

And scene.

There is a vile lie, which stalks the Jewish people across the globe. It is a lie so heinous, so far from the truth, that it can only gain popularity due to the complicity of powerful forces in the "mainstream" media and educational establishment. It is a lie which has brought many innocent people untold suffering and if unchecked has the potential to create extraordinary tragedy in the future.

It is the lie that declares that Judaism and Zionism are identical. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Judaism is the belief in revelation at Sinai. It is the belief that exile is a punishment for Jewish sins. Zionism has for over a century denied Sinaitic revelation. It believes that Jewish exile can be ended by military aggression. Zionism has spent the past century strategically dispossessing the Palestinian people. It has ignored their just claims and subjected them to persecution, torture and death.

Torah Jews the world over are shocked and pained at this short-lived dogma of irreligiosity and cruelty. Thousands of Torah scholars and saints have condemned this movement from its inception. They knew that the pre-existing good relationship between Jews and Muslims in the Holy Land was bound to suffer as Zionism advanced.

The so-called "State of Israel" stands rejected on religious grounds by the Torah. Its monstrous insensitivity to the laws of basic decency and fairness appall all men be they Jewish or not.

Are you serious?  It amazes me that people can ignore the shit that the Zionists have been heaping on the Palestinians for decades and THEN when they strike back (as feeble as it is), they consider it justification for more slaughter, more oppression, more land grabs, more sniping of civilians, etc, etc. It seems that those "rockets" are pretty damn ineffective - which is what one would expect from home-made munitions - essentially oversized bottle rockets (if there are really any rockets at all - I wouldn't put it past the Israelis to lie about that, too - they have to keep beating the "victim" drum - it's the only song they know).  All you have to look at is how many Zionist civilians have been killed (if any) and you can see how "scary" those rockets must be. What's the ratio?  One Zionist for 100 Palestinians?   But hey, those bottle rockets make great justifications for using DIME munitions, tanks, white phosphorus, attack helicopters, burying people alive when bulldozing homes, and indiscriminate pot-shots at kids playing soccer by bored watchtower snipers, eh?


Kind of makes me wonder how Zionists would pass the time if there was nobody left to murder.....

Similar in the fact that murder of the innocents is always wrong.  Most of those jews responsible for the growing hatred in Germany were able to flee.  Usually arriving on the shores of America or taking refuge in Switzerland.  The poor Jews who didn't cause the issue paid the price.

Now please explain why Ariel Sharon feels compelled as a world leader to state that they control the government of my nation.  That alone engenders hatred from me because the fractional minority of another country shouldn't have a bearing on what my government does.

As a "working assumption", let's assume that's true.  In that case...

What's that say about th 98% of the populace and its secular and clerical leadership/powers, for having ALLOWED this to happen?  "They" look out for their ow, it seems.  The next question is:  Who's looking out for YOU, for the country?  The "Christian" ruling elite?  Please, don't make me have a laughing fit.

It's time to stop only blaming "them".  It's high time we blamed, tarred, feathered, hung, shot or guillotined our so-called "Christian" leaders for high treason.  Then and only then will you see change -- the kind of "Change You Can Believe In":  each ethnic, racial and national group looks after their OWN, and stops making excuses for their own failures.

p.s. Hitler (a "Catholic") was responsible for millions of Atheists and Christians (Catholics and Protestants, lay and clergy) dying in his camps.  E.g., I looked at and analyzed a set of records that the Russians supplied to the West in the 1990s, played some Excel sorting games, and determined that just as many Catholics died in Auschwitz alone as did Jews.  BTW, before some sub-80 IQ ignoramus starts the Denial bullshit, some of the people on that list were in my family tree, but not everyone killed was on the list.  And don't forget about the 14 million Russians (Orthodox Christians) who died fighting Hitler.  Truth can be such a bitch, I know. 

BTW, nothing but NOTHING could have convinced Jews to leave their respective countries and head for Rothschild's Palestine (Balfour Declaration), than Hitler and his NAZIS.  If Hitler wasn't such a sick fuck, he'd have settled for (a) confiscation or forced sale of assets and (b) forced relocation to Palestine.  But then the Rottenchild war-profiteering bankster scum would not have happened, nor the associated rise of the US MIC.

Klink, this is not directed at you specifically, but merely to direct The Argument where is should be directed to:  At Christians who are blaming Jews for their own shortcomings and failures.

When Christians start acting like "Jews", i.e. attack or "kill" each other only in the corporate boardroom, but otherwise work together -- under the basic Principle of "How is this going to help me or my fellow Christians?" -- then and only then are they worthy of respect and trust.  Until that happens, they are (IMO) merely Useful Fools, Useful Tools. 

Darwinism at work, baby.

As it happens -- and I got this from a Catholic Bishop no less -- the Church takes the blame for that:

In the Middle Ages (since 12th century, actually), the Church has been reluctant to handle "that filthy lucre" known as Money.  They let the Jews handle it for them, since Jews were forbidden (by Church and secular law) to own land of any significance or hold positions of power.  Naturally, as an ambitious sub-group, they created a system within a system, and made Money and Money Changing their game, their... "Schtick".

They (the "Money Jews") also learned rather quickly that the so-called "Christian" nobility was more devout about leading the good life and about conquering whatever they coveted, than about being "Christians".  This is not surprising, given that most nobility had their roots as robber barons who first settled down from their roving-gang ways to protecting a local town from other marauders, and then set up a fortification and started collecting fees/taxes from the locals.  "Sins of the fathers" and all.

This aristocratic penchant for war -- the costliest business around -- was not something that any enterprising and marginalized Jewish banker was going to waste.  He'd be retarded if he did.  And if you don't like the Terms... then don't go to fucking war, asshole!  By the time the Rothschilds came along, they realized that they simply needed to make social inroads with the ruling monarchs in each country, to position themselves for the biggest loans possible.  We all know how this worked out for them.  Like all conquests, they begin and end in... the mind.  It's how you see the problem that is the problem, and is also the roots of the solution.

So, while we may quibble about some of the above details, the REAL question remains:  What about the TRUE blame, i.e. the endless and ravenous appetite for Other People's Land, Other People's Stuff that the Feudal lords suffered from?  Are we going to ID the root cause and stop blaming others, or keep blaming them exclusively?

Suggestion 1 -- and I suspect we'll agree on this, even though I strongly suspect you to be religious  (unlike me, who has "self-excommunicated"):  Let's end Usury.  This automatically means that not only do we end the fiat currency system, but also... [drum roll]... end Compound Interest, upon which all fiat systems and Usury are based.

Suggestion 2: More Direct Voting -- Swiss style.  In this modern era we are no longer dependent on Representatives representing us in a faraway place, to/from which communication takes days or weeks.

A truly sad fact here is that Hamas was ifnot created by, at least covertly supported by the Zionist occupiers as a counterbalance to the PLO.


The fact that Hamas overtly supported Morsi in Egypt as well as the rebel hordes in syria outs them as suspect and they are serving as useful idiots in destroying their own people.


as for the comment. See link and be prepared for horrific images.


Killing children, with things like white phosphorus and flechettes would not be what most of us would call exercising restraint I would think.

With respect to this tragedy, I look back on who I was say 10 years ago and am overcome with a deep sense of personal shame. Back then I would have been cheering on the IDF and saying that the palestinians are getting what they deserve. I recall at some point thinking Binyamin Satanyahu was a real bad ass too. I'm proud and glad I stopped drinking the kool-aid and certainly can understand how people can. It's hard though as most of us I'm sure would agree though, to see the world for what it is because it is the polar opposite of what is portrayed.

    "Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples,

    "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach."

    "Woe to you teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in mens faces. You yourselves do not enter nor will you let those enter who are trying to."

    "Woe to you teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make a single convert and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are."

    "Woe unto you blind guides!

    "You say, if anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath! You blind fools: which is greater, the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? You also say, 'if anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is bound by his oath. You blind fools! Which is greater, the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it, and by everything on it. And he who swears by the temple, swears by it and the one who dwells in it."

    "Woe to you teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of greed and self- indulgence. Blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

    "Woe to you teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness."

    "Woe to you teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets, and decorate the graves of the righteous, And you say, 'If we had been in the days of our forefathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.' So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of the sin of your forefathers!

    "You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. I tell you the truth, all this will come upon this generation.

    "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets, and stone those sent to you. How often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'"

pretty easy to see why a country in Iran's position might want  nukes...   just look what the U.S. and Is-ra-el do to people that can't defend themselves.   That said, I think the Iranian leadership is being totally honest when they say they are not pursuing nuclear weapons.  Unlike the criminal insanity that runs Is-ra-el and the U.S., they do not follow the 'might makes right', kill or be killed, mentality.

ASHINGTON, GEORGE, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.

    "They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy's armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in... It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America."

This prophecy, by Benjamin Franklin, was made in a "CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION," at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the dairy of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina.

    "I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews.
    In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal.
    For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race.
    If you do not exclude them from these United States, in their Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives our substance and jeopardized our liberty.
    If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves.
    Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American's, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.

Whaddya mean "Asiatic"?  I thought they were "Chosen".  Although one Christian asked many years ago: "Chose for what, if all are God's children?  Chosen to what end?"  Good question, fair question.

/ Of course I also heard (TV shows and Cafeteria/Lounge whispers of spaceship) that they are hybrids of human and space_alien hybrids.  IOW, hybrids of hybrids.  Hence "chosen" to mix the human gene pool.  Hence the Manna from Heaven thing -- a kind of Celestial Child Support program.

Of course, as a healthy (horny) starship captain, I always thought that this is natural Trickle-Down Genetics, when Starfleet officers or Crew go on shore-leave on places like Earth.  Now, about that Virgin Mary babe... / sarc

This is the prevaling opinion on that...


The threatening of wild, irrational violence, in response to political pressure, has been an Israeli impulse from the very earliest days. It was first authoritatively documented, in the 1950s, by Moshe Sharett, the dovish Prime Minister, who wrote of his Defence Minister, Pinhas Lavon, that he 'constantly preached for acts of madness' or 'going crazy' if ever Israel were crossed. Without a 'just, comprehensive and lasting' peace which only America can bring to pass, Israel will remain at least as likely a candidate as Iran, and a far more enduring one, for the role of 'nuclear-crazy' state.


Iran can never be threatened in its very existence. Israel can. Indeed, such a threat could even grow out of the current intifada. That, at least, is the pessimistic opinion of Martin van Creveld, professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. 'If it went on much longer,' he said, 'the Israeli government [would] lose control of the people. In campaigns like this, the anti-terror forces lose, because they don't win, and the rebels win by not losing. I regard a total Israeli defeat as unavoidable. That will mean the collapse of the Israeli state and society. We'll destroy ourselves.'


In this situation, he went on, more and more Israelis were coming to regard the 'transfer' of the Palestinians as the only salvation; resort to it was growing 'more probable' with each passing day. Sharon 'wants to escalate the conflict and knows that nothing else will succeed'.


But would the world permit such ethnic cleansing? 'That depends on who does it and how quickly it happens. We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: "Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother." I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.'

It's like asking most Americans what the war is EYE-Rack was for.    It was because of those weapons of mass delusion, and SAD-AM trying to take over OUR oil.

Good point.  Not that I'm trolling for points, but it is true that I was the only person (as I recall) who pointed out several times during the Syrian WMD thing, that... Israel and its Orthodox settlers and farmers benefit from increase water rights/access, with large population shifts out of Southern Syria and the sectarian violence.  Need for water trumps all.

Just want to go on the record again for saying it.

Israel could level Gaza in under an hour, using nothing but conventional means

They don't

Instead they send in military at great cost to try and pick out combatant from civilian

Not sure many countries under continuous rocket fire would bother with this

All this may be lost on some ZH dredge, but notice the political sphere is taking Israel's side in this conflict

I notice the political sphere taking many wrong sides all the time. I have no reason the believe this would be any different.

Also, the argument you use ASSUMES the political sphere has, as it's core value, justice, peace, and prosperity. It has been shown MANY times that the core value of the political sphere is more power. It achieves this through propaganda and injustice.
