Palestine / Israeli Conflict
There are many reports about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict in western media but what is missing are (1) historical context and (2) truthful exposures about what is happening to the Palestinian people today. It is interesting to note that reports about what is really happening in Palestine are more readily available in Israel than in the US . The true proof of the pro-Israel, biased agenda of main stream media is their lack of reporting of daily attrocities being committed against Palestinians by Israelis. Other independent media around the world report about these attrocities. Somehow information about that is deliberately kept from Americans. While at the same time we are bombarded with consistent propaganda about Palestinian "suicide bombers" and "terrorists". Also how can Americans properly judge the situation in Palestine without a historical context? How can they continue to blindly support Israel without really knowing the truth about how their support is used by the Zionist state? This section will present articles answering these questions and more.
Ed note: Although Netanyahu blames Hamas for using human shields as the reason why there are so many Palestinian casualties and also praises the Israeli army for not targeting civilians and being the most moral, the reality of what the Israeli army is doing is more in line with the words of their Chief Rabbi of Hebron and Kiryat Arba in the southern West Bank than Netanyahu's false claims. Collective punishment and killing innocent civilians are all permissible and encouraged in Judaism according to their Chief Rabbi .
Dov Lior, a racist Israeli rabbi from the West Bank settlement Kiryat Arba, recently posted a Halakhic ruling allowing to kill innocent civilians, after being asked about the “war” (it’s a massacre) in Gaza.

Editor's Note: At the end of this article there are two videos showing documented evidence of Israelis using Palestinian children as human shields.
“In several cases Israeli soldiers used [Palestinian] civilians, including children, as ‘human shields’.” ...when the Israeli Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that the Israeli military had to stop using Palestinian civilians as human shields, the Israeli “defense” establishment objected to the ruling...
This reveals two important things: the first is the moral hypocrisy and chutzpah on display when Israel ignores its own use of human shields as it accuses its enemies of using them. The second is Israel’s self-contradicting logic: If Palestinian militants had such disregard for Palestinian civilian lives, why was the Israeli military so invested in maintaining the ability to use Palestinians as shields? The fact that the Israeli army wants to use Palestinian human shields actually proves that they believe Palestinian militants prefer not to endanger their own civilians.
