United Nation: «End Israel blockade of Gaza»

Al Jazeera keeps on harping that Gaza is under blockage. The Islamic TV-Channel gives a statement from a United Nations official, Special Rapporteur for human rights in the Palestinian territories Richard Falk, who denounce Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip.

In a statement on Friday, Falk pointed to a recent report on the impact on health resulting from the two-year blockade, issued by the Red Cross, stressing that Israeli actions not only restrict food, medicine, and fuel to bare subsistence levels but has, in unprecedented fashion, disallowed the entry to Gaza of building materials and spare parts needed for repairing some of the widespread damage caused by its attacks on the Strip last winter.

“Such a pattern of continuing blockade under these conditions amounts to such a serious violation of the Geneva Conventions as to constitute a continuing crime against humanity,” the independent human rights expert added.

My comment:

The Islamic propaganda war against Israel have many victims. First and most important the truth. Lies, upon lies have been launched into Global Media, deceiving al who do not search deeper into the sources of Information.

The above data from The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) will never be published on Global media, who behave like a propaganda machine, not seen since the day of the propaganda ministry of Nazi-Germany.

The data from the MFA can easily be verified by any journalist. But they are not interested.

You can also be sure of one thing. The MFA data is correct down to the lest gram of food sent into Gaza, to try to rescue the Gazan`s from the clutch of Hamas and Radical Islam.

How can I be sure of this?

I can, because if there was a smallest mistake in this data, the World Media would make a huge hue and cry, and blame Israel for fake and falsehood.

And please keep in mind: All this aid is flowing into Gaza while Egypt keeps its border with Gaza closed. What kind of brotherly love is this? Muslims against muslims?

Still nobody speaks about an Egyptian blockage of Gaza, not even provoked by a single Hamas rocket fired into Gaza?

Jewish Israel keeps Gazan`s alive, while their Muslim brothers keeps on chocking them, to put the blame on Israel.

Welcome to a mad world of hate towards the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
