Cease-Fire Violated: Israeli Military Says 3 Rockets Fired From Gaza

Tyler Durden's picture


Well that didn't last long...


The Israeli military has declared the cease-fire broken. So this is the escalation that will enable a pent-up de-escalation buying opportunity?


As Reuters reports,

Three rockets fired from the Gaza Strip struck southern Israel on Tuesday, the Israeli military said, hours before a truce with Palestinian militant groups was set to expire.


A military spokeswoman said the rockets landed in open areas near the city of Beersheba and there were no reports of casualties. Reuters witnesses in Gaza City said they heard the sound of rockets being launched from the Palestinian enclave

Israel and Hamas are just trying to grab a few headlines.  Sorry, Ferguson is today's story with Iraq second.  Ebola is in the show position.

Woman with Ebola-like symptoms taken to hospital in Berlin - media

Source: Reuters - Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:27 GMT

BERLIN, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Emergency services in Berlin cordoned off a job centre and took a woman with Ebola-like symptoms including high fever to hospital, German media reported, citing ambulance workers.

There was no immediate official information on the woman's identity or symptoms, nor on whether she had travelled from the epidemic area in West Africa. Reuters reporters on the scene said other people at the job-centre had been allowed to leave. (Reporting by Stephen Brown; Editing by Andrew Heavens)

Paul Craig Roberts outlines the reality in “Israel Stealing, Murdering Its Way Through Palestine – Establishment politicians, media refuse to stand up for the real victims.” Here’s an excerpt:

“Israel is always the aggressor but always takes the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans—“snakes,” as one Israeli politician put it—who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves while Israelis sit in cafes peacefully discussing philosophical issues and the latest news. To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools and civilian homes and apartment blocks.

“These unmistakable war crimes, these crimes against humanity are all ignored by the great moral arbiters of the world—the governments of the West who are shaking their fingers not at Israel but their fists at Russia.

“Western governments ignore Israel’s war crimes but not all Western peoples comply with this neglect. Many thousands of demonstrators against Israel have been in the streets in South America, London, Paris, Germany, Dublin and Israel’s own Tel Aviv. But don’t look for much reporting of these demonstrations in the American presstitute media.

“The American presstitute media is focused on those who died in the downing of the Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine, in order to blame those 290 deaths on Russia. As far as the American presstitute media is concerned, the murder of 1,200 Palestinians* is not happening or if it is, the Palestinians deserve it for responding to Israel’s oppression by firing in frustration primitive rockets that seldom, if ever, hit their targets.”

- See more at:

*Update: “During the nearly month-long military offensive on Gaza prior to the short ceasefire, Israel killed 448 children and injured 2,502, according to United Nations estimates. As of 8 August, the death toll in Gaza had reached 1,922.”

TS/NI  (too short/no information)

Translation: You’re wasting your time if your post does not contain facts.

The Israeli propaganda campaign, which in the US alone must cost multimillions of dollars and obviously provides for trolls on various websites, is not going to be enough to overcome its declining credibility as it uses missiles and warplanes to attack the Gaza Prison.

The reason so few Israeli civilians are hurt or killed in these amateur rock attacks is that the rockets carry so little explosives (sometimes only 5 lbs.) and with elaborate warnings Israelis can go to the next rooms in their houses or to shelters to survive these relatively minor hits. The Israeli Defense Force even admits that if you are in open territory when a rocket heads your way, you have an 80% chance of survival by just lying down on the ground, unless the rocket actually hits you.

Quite a contrast, isn’t it, with the huge explosive charges from USA-made missiles and jet airplanes blowing apart entire apartment blocks, schools, hospitals and power plants?

The meaning of America was self-determination where a man could choose for himself his life and his future, organizing government to protect those rights. All the Palestinians had asked was self-determination, to have the land that their ancestors had lived upon. Some of those mosques in Gaza are 700 years old. And your suggestion is the suggestion of Stalin: People are expendable. Whatever hopes and dreams they have, no matter, they conflict with the ruling Israelis' greed.

Eventually, the American producers can give up everything if you have your way, even their country and cultural identity, to the Zionists. For he who owns the Fed owns the Congress and the "Chief." That is why D.C. is arming this murderous rogue state - that is why D.C. is Israel's enabler.

According to a recent report by RT, the U.S. "provided as much as 95% of the weaponry in Israel's arsenal as recently as 2009." But, hey, why should Israelis care any more about struggling Americans that have to foot the bill than they do about the Palestinians whose land they occupy?

“As Reuters reports…” -- Tyler

Reuters is the pipeline – It is through Reuters that Kiev and Israel and D.C. create their own wars with their own facts.

Who cares what Reuters reports except politicians the likes of Rand Paul who justify this Palestinian genocide by blaming Hamas in order to get Israel’s support to run for the White House.  Clearly, D.C. and Israel are planning the extermination of all opposition. There appear to be none save Vladimir Putin who are taking steps to prevent it.

“We’re not calling this blood bath in Gaza a war, like the mainstream media. For it to truly be considered a war, both sides would have to be adequately armed and engaged in protracted combat. Instead, what honest, objective observers are witnessing is the Israeli army engaged in a turkey shoot, indiscriminately slaughtering innocent men, women and children in the densely populated ghetto of Gaza, as Palestinians fire back, often with rock-armed slingshots.

"But while the rest of the orld is rightfully calling out Israel’s crimes against humanity, D.C. wants to give Israel another $1 billion this year to help it murder more Muslims and Christians…

"Washington’s blind obedience and deference to Israel is no longer just obvious to us. It is evident to the entire world, which is turning against Israelis, who have clearly gone too far this time.” -- Christopher J. Petherick, Executive Editor, AFP

In contrast to the intent of your claim, Paul Craig Roberts points out "there are reports that Israeli civilians sit atop the hill overlooking Gaza on sofas that they bring along with their drinks and food and watch in glee, clapping and cheering as Israeli bombs destroy Palestinians in their homes, children in their schools and the ill in hospitals.

"After seven decades the Palestinian people remain unarmed. Hamas has a few ineffective weapons, but the people themselves are unarmed. Their response to the Israeli murders of their children, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, parents, cousins and friends is to cry. This is not the response of a warlike people."

And as for those awful UN negative proposals against your inhumanity to man, you're going to need the world’s largest superpower to beat the others away from criticizing tiny little, misunderstood Butcher Netanyahu.

Do the Zionists really expect the Gazans to accept living in poverty under apartheid rule?

"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." — David Ben-Gurion

"If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" — David Ben-Gurion

The final master plan was called Plan D (Dalet in Hebrew) ... It was to be a war without mercy complying with what Ben-Gurion said ...:

The goal was simple and straightforward - to create an exclusive Jewish state ...

Once begun, the whole ugly business took six months to complete. It expelled about 800,000 people, killed many others, and destroyed 531 villages and 11 urban neighborhoods in cities like Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem.

The action was ethnic cleansing that international law calls a crime against humanity for which convicted Nazis at Nuremberg were hanged.
