32. The Gaza strip remains a disaster area. In fact in term of sheer destruction of homes and infrastructure, the coastal enclave can be compared to quake stricken Haiti, with the main difference that the Caribbean island's calamity was a natural disaster, while the GAZA disaster was inflicted by the criminal Israeli regime. To-day Israel continues to prevent large number of consumer goods from entering GAZA. This policy, often justified by security considerations, has actually nothing to do with security. It is a deliberate measure aimed at further tormenting the inhabitants of GAZA by showing them that Israel has the final say and that they would have to submit themselves to the ZIONIST will. This is how the Nazis behaved towards the inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto, forcing them to smuggle food and other consumer products into the Ghetto. What is more scandalous is that the Zionist regime is adamantly preventing the entry into GAZA of building materials needed for the construction of the estimated 40,000 homes destroyed, either completely or partly during last years Nazi-like onslaught against the impoverished territory. There is no doubt that the continued blockade of GAZA has exposed the brutal ugliness of Israel's face, demonstrating that Israel and Nazi Germany are very much two sides of the same coin.
The Zionist argument is that Palestinians have brought these destructions onto themselves by refusing to halt the firing of "rockets" into "Israel territory". I would like the reader first to go to Post 13 "True Words" by Moshe Dayan, the by the Israeli's much celebrated war hero. Let's not forget that the Israelis at the receiving end of these rocket attacks were foreign immigrants, who conquered the land by brute force and are now occupying Palestinian land, houses and businesses that once belonged to the indigenous Palestinian population, driven away and now living in this tiny enclave called GAZA, the largest concentration camp in the world, a situation in many ways comparable to the Jews imprisoned by the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto during WW 2. So it is of paramount importance to understand the historical background of the Zionist/Palestinian conflict, before making proper judgements on the rights and wrongs of Palestinian resistance. Would it be fair if faced with a similar situation as the oppressed Palestinians find themselves in to-day, where your land, your house and business and all your possessions were taken from you, to demand the recognition of the "rights and existence" of the usurpers ?
Should the people of occupied Europe during WW 2 have recognised the rights of the Nazi's to occupy their countries ? Let's suppose for one moment a hypothetically similar situation here in New Zealand when say for instance the Chinese were to immigrate in large numbers to this country and gradually take over New Zealand, driving us New Zealanders into a small enclave, may be somewhere on the West Coast of the South Island. Would New Zealanders accept such a situation without putting up a fight ? Would you ?

Footnote: The original population of GAZA was:253,137 ; Refugees forcibly expelled from their homeland by the Zonists: 813,570 Total GAZA population to-day 1,066,707

31. A new law in Israel makes it a crime to commemorate what Palestinians call "The Nakba" or "catastrophe" of their dispossession by the creation of the Zionist state in 1948. The Knesset, Israeli's parliament, has passed "The Nakba Draft Law" after just one reading. Penalties will be imposed on anyone showing signs of sadness and mourning within the (still undefined) borders of Israel on 15 May; Palestinians remember on that day the creation of the refugee crisis that still remains after 62 years. Under the Land Acquisition Act the booty and spoils from the expelled Arab population is accommodated in the JNF (Jewish National Fund) and the ILA (Israel Land Authority).

30. I am inclined to agree with Ken McAllister (Press 24/02). I suggest that Lorne Kuehn engages in some direct talk with Chinese students to find out what their thinking is of China to-day. We all know that in the United States and other western (dependent) capitalist countries there is a huge discrepancy between rich and poor; the rich getting increasingly and disproportionately richer; the poor getting poorer by the day. In the United States many people are now dependent on charity and free-food hand-outs. Within the last sixty years China has emerged from a backward, feudal, medieval society into the second largest economy of the world and liberated millions of people from starvation; an unprecedented achievement in the evolution of human society. It is only a matter of time and the Chinese will surpass the U.S. China has a State guided economy; Americans would call it "socialism", which accounts for this phenomenal hitherto unprecedented success, quite different from 18th century laissez-fair "dog eats dog" capitalism, which ultimately will lead to America's demise, the same as so many great empires in the past.

Letter submitted on the 20th and 24th in an amended form. Both times rejected.

I realize that China is not a champion in human rights, but as Ken McAllister rightly pointed out, who are we to criticize with our own dismal human rights records in the west. Surely we can find just as many human rights abuses, if not more in western capitalist countries. We only have to look at Guantanamo Bay, the "rendition" of "terrorist suspects" by the CIA to countries that practises in torture in even more ghastly and horrific ways; Israel's treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories; the indiscriminately and large scale killings of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan with remote operating hi-tech devices. And so we can go on for a long time. Is it not a bit hypocritical to accuse China ? Let's first engage in some self-criticism before we accuse others. No country has a clean bill of human rights.

29. According to a recent report from the International Red Cross (ICRC) the Israeli security measures in the West Bank are severely impacting Palestinian life. Conditions for the Palestinian territory are difficult and "living a normal life is close to impossible for many people in the West Bank" The ICRC has repeatedly called for action to be taken to allow Palestinians to live their lives in dignity. Checkpoints and roadblocks, some connected to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, were primary causes of the disruption of normal life. The organization, considered the "legal" guardian" of the international humanitarian law, said in its view the Israeli settlements are "illegal". The barrier Israel is completing in the West Bank was also "contrary to international law". Israel must find the right balance between meeting its legitimate security needs and safeguarding the basic rights of the Palestinian population. Palestinians were facing attacks from Israeli settlers and were losing land to settlements, the ICRC charged, saying this too violated the Fourth Geneva Convention.

28. Reaction from a reader on Post 17 on Haiti.
"What gets me is that there would have been plenty of nations helping out in Haiti that did not need to publicize their presence there and who did not care to make the headlines or not. They only had one objective: to help.
Contributed by FF

Postscript: Mrs Jenny Tonge health critic for the Liberal Democratic Party in the UK's House of Lords was removed from Office after she had demanded an inquiry into claims that the Israeli military stole body organs during relief work in Haiti. This is not the first time Israel has been accused of stealing body parts.

27. For clarity sake I like to point out what the purpose is of this blog and what its objectives are:
1) To publish letters as much as possible rejected by the editors of our news media on the Middle East conflict.
2)To refer readers to sources of background information which for a variety of reasons are never published and one never reads about in our Zionist dominated corporate mainstream news media.

It is not a "debating" forum, because debating and discussions on this sensitive subject become too emotional and invariably lead to much nastiness, invectives, abuse and personal insults. There is no point in that. They often become "tit for tat" debates, trying to score points and a game of words. One only has to visit the KBRM website to find out how true this is.

That's not our style at all. We want to keep the blog civilized and dignified, convinced that people cannot be converted to a particular point of view by merely debating issues and insulting, abusing and ridiculing each other in the process. Personal opinions are often deeply entrenched in emotional prejudices from which the individual finds it difficult to escape or break away from.

People in our view, have to find out and educate themselves; everyone has to make up his or her own mind and that is the purpose of this blog. We endeavour to alert and refer genuinely interested and open-minded readers as much as possible to historical facts and sources of information derived from books, websites, blogs U.N. resolutions, Geneva Conventions, Human Rights groups, Red Cross, international law etc etc. There is a host of untapped suppressed, under-reported information available one never hears or read about via our corporate main stream news media.

The idea for a Jewish homeland was first introduced by the Austrian Jew Theodor Herzl away back in the 1890's. Anti-Semitism was rife in Europe at the time and also the Dreyfus affair in France, when a Jewish high ranking officer was false accused of espionage and subsequently sent to Devils Island (but later released and exonerated) contributed to the call for a Jewish homeland. Initially several countries had been suggested, amongst others Argentine, Mozambique. Uganda was proposed by Joseph Chamberlain in 1903, but was defeated by 295 against 175 with 99 abstentions at the 6th Zionist Congress also in 1903.

The 1917 Balfour Declaration it was determined that Palestine should be the future "homeland" for the Jews, but at the same guaranteeing the rights for also the Palestinian population. Peaceful co-existence was to be preserved. It was agreed that nothing should be done that could be detrimental to the other communities in Palestine. It was to be a National Home for the Jews, contrary to a Jewish (Zionist) dominated "state". Churchill commented (quote):to all inhabitants of this country (Palestine) without distinction of race and and religion - non Jewish inhabitants should not suffer the consequences"
Round the mid 19th century there were already a handful of Jews living in Palestine in peaceful co-existence with their Arab neighbours. In the beginning of the last century half a million Arabs lived in Palestine and 65,000 Jews (13%).
At the 1919 Paris Peace Conference at the conclusion of WW 1 it was decided that Palestine would become a British Mandate. (after the demise of the Ottoman Empire).

The Zionist Haganah terror organisation was founded in 1921. Zionists were encouraging Jewish people to emigrate to Palestine. They were mostly from Russia and East European countries, where persecution of Jewish people was worst. Right from its
very beginning Zionists realised that a purely Zionist state could only be achieved by the expulsion of the native Arab population. Weapons were constantly smuggled into the country, during and after WW2 mainly from Russia and East communist countries and a campaign of terror and assassinations began to unfold against both Arabs and British Mandate forces, responsible for maintaining peace and order in the mandate.
In 1922 the Arab population had grown to 750,000 and the Jewish immigrants had grown to nearly 84,000 (+11%). The natural growth of the indigenous Arab population was slightly greater than the influx of Jewish immigrants from abroad.
In 1932 one million Arabs lived in Palestine and + 192,000 Jews (19%) However in 1940Jewish immigrant population had grown to appr. 30% and became of great concern to the indigenous Arabs, who regarded the new immigrants as foreign intruders. (faced with a similar problem here in NZ, we would most certainly feel much the same).

Over the years several proposals were made to create a bi-national, unitary state, which was strongly opposed by the Zionists. The Arabs demanded establishment of democratic institutions; the Zionist a single exclusively Jewish state.

The 1937 Peel Commission report suggested a TWO state proposal, but was by the Zionists regarded as irreconcilable with Jewish aspirations. Zionists strongly resisted partition (as we still see to-day). Anthony Eden stood by the Peel Commissions report and assured Arabs that Jews would not be given any territories exclusive for their own use. The Arabs and British Governments were both strongly against Zionists enterprises. Jewish settlements amounted to colonisation, which was met by strong Arab resistance. Killings and counter killings continued unabated.

In 1939as a result of increased violence between Arabs and immigrant Jews, Britain put a clamp on continued Jewish immigration into Palestine. However clandestine Jewish immigration continued nevertheless for years. The Zionist aim was and still is of course) to gain a Jewish majority and ultimately supremacy by changing the demography in their favour by the forcible expulsion of the native Arabs. Contemporary news media were calling the Haganah an illegal terrorist organisation (because they attacked British troops). British soldiers were constantly searching for illegal weapons, smuggled from abroad, mainly from east European countries.The British government also put a clamp on Jewish land purchases. They reiterated that "Jews and Arabs have to learn to live together".

New Zionists terrorist groups had sprung up. During the early years of WW 2 when Germany was still victorious in Europe, leaders of the Zionist Stern and Irgun Gangs, responsible for some of the most appalling massacres and atrocities carried out against the Arab civilian population from 1947 to 1949 had made unsuccessful attempts to approach Hitler and Musolini requesting them for assistance to defeat the British in the Palestine Mandate.

Both Labour and the Conservatives had no appetite for Jewish statehood. Irgun and Stern Gangs stepped up their terrorists campaigns against British troops in Palestine.

Right from the very beginning there had always been a distinct awareness of Arab resistance against increased Jewish immigration into Palestine and the dire consequences for many generations to come. On 24th July 1946 and in the face of increased violence in the country a British Cabinet Committee proposed to split up Palestine in three areas: 43% British; 40% Arab and 17% Jewish. However Arab proposals for an independent and UNITARY state was favoured by Ernest Bevin, who had been quoted: "Arab hostility to partition would have serious consequences of permanently alienating the Arabs and would be so serious that partition is a desperate remedy" He continued: "Jews never accept partition as final but would keep expanding its frontiers. The existence of a Jewish state might prove a constant factor of unrest in the ME". Albert Einstein himself a Jew who fled Nazi Germany before WW2 also advocated a unitary state where Arabs and Jews would co-exists and live peacefully together and that partition would never work. We know now how right they all were

On the 22 July 1946 members of the Zionist Irgun Gang blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, resulting in many death and wounded. As violence increased by the day, but also due to domestic economic problems in Britain itself, the British on 15 February 1947 handed over the problems of partition to the United Nations. 19 March 1947 Warren Austin (US) also maintained that partition is not possible and will cause continued bloodshed. US Secr. of State C. Marshall warned the Jews not to declare a state of their own.Zionists supported by the Soviets continued to smuggle weapons into Palestine through communist Europe. Zionist ideology believe that the only way to establish a Jewish state is by armed conquest and the forcible expulsion of the native Arab population. The Zionist were biding their time and the various terrorists organisations under leadership of the Haganah had been waiting for the vacuum that was created after the hand over to the United Nations and the subsequent evacuation of British troops from the Mandate in May 1948.

On the 15 May 1948 Ben Gurion for a stunned UN assembly proclaimed prematurely and unilaterally "The State of Israel" sharply clashing with United Nations intentions and objectives. The U.N. partition Resolution 181 (29/11/47) had never been carried out and was ignored by the Zionists. Fighting between Jews and and Arabs which had already been going on for many years, intensified. Neighbouring countries such as Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt, faced with a huge economic burden following the the influx of many thousands Palestinians driven from the towns, villages and land came to their aid and invaded the Mandate after the vacuum that had been created by he departure of British troops from the country. Long columns of elderly folks, women and children could be seen, many of them dying by the roadside of exhaustion and dehydration. (crime against humanity). Horrific massacres had been perpetrated by the terrorist gangs Haganah, Irgun and Stern Gangs, later amalgamated into the IDF (Israel Defence Force). Most appalling were those of Dawaymeh and Deir Yassin (see Googles for details). Widespread rape of women and looting of abandoned Arab villages took place between 1947 and 1949.
Please note that at that point in time borders were still not defined. Israel was and to-day is still not a single geographic entity.
Israel was first accepted by the United Nations a year later on 11 May 1949.

The United States called for a three month cease fire and a temporary take over by the U.S., while finding an acceptable solution for both sides. This was rejected by the Zionists. Half the Jewish Council preferred postponement; the other half was prepared to accept the U.S. proposals. United Nations mediator Count Bernadotte proposed an Arab administration for Jerusalem, which was approved by the Zionists. However Bernadotte was subsequently assassinated by members of the Stern Gang.

25.I was particularly appalled by "Dr" Rodney Brook's lack of concern for Palestinian suffering in his letter and statement that only Israel security matters-this is the worst kind of Zionist racism and reminds me of German lack of concern for Jewish and other subject people's suffering during the war (WW2) This kind of extremist partisan approach is totally inhuman, no matter which side is taken in a conflict such as this.

Some of you may have already come across to references of Israeli government support for Hamas in the late 70's as a part of a plan to undermine the secular PLO. This is a good point to throw at Zionists who harp on about "progressive, democratic Israel defending the world from Islamic terror" (Hamas). In fact, Israel has actively fostered the Islamisation of Palestinian opposition.
also: See the important original United Press International article (2002) revealing the link between Israel and Hamas referenced in the above article at
This website(Information Clearing House) is one of the best news sites which collates important articles from around the globe often ignored by the mainstream media.

The follwig article has much interesting detail on the links between the Israeli government and Hamas:

Also visit Google "Israel supports Hamas" to bring up many articles.

This Israeli support for Islamists is of course a similar ploy to the US support for Osama Bin Laden when it suited their strategies against secular Afghan and Russian communists- the subsequent justification given for a "war on terror" when Islamist terrorism is similar too.

24.I write this with great trepidation as it takes me out of my comfort zone, and is bound to do the same for you. It is about a conspiracy to spread 1918 flu virus in contaminated vaccines, to kill people because they will otherwise collapse their countries' economies as increasing numbers retire.The source is a magazine produced in Auckland by the New Yorker who edited the book: "Suppressed Inventions". The magazine is a collection of rebellious articles from the Internet, independent of the corporate media. It was the first to expose the 9/11 conspiracy to NZ. One of 9/11's main players, Donald Rumsfeld, was the main beneficiary of the bird flu epidemic, because his company made the vaccine Tamiflu. He is involved in the present pandemic plan in preparation for the next, more deadly vaccine.

A huge natural gas field has been found off the coast of GAZA in the Mediterranean Sea. Its existence is surely why Israel is trying to get rid of the Palestinians in GAZA. Now this pandemic offers their ideal solution if spread through GAZA.

23.To-days KBRM advertisements is sickening. To have the audacity to propagandize its Haiti relief efforts, while on the other hand it has killed and maimed hundreds of children in the GAZA strip last year and thousands over the last sixty years in Lebanon using phosphorous and cluster bombs against a civilian population.
Last year this evil regime blocked a convoy of 120 trucks at the GAZA/Egypt border bringing medical and other humanitarian relief aid to this stricken enclave. Where is the "balance" in reporting ?


Reaction from F.F. to KBRM ad.
If the two writers did not find errors in KBRM advertisement according to Rodney Brooks (27/1) I can point one out.
The advert says that Israel is "fighting for its life"; not true, not with the 4th biggest army in the world, nuclear armaments, and support from the U.S., against rockets which miss 350 times to 1.
It is fighting to keep this land it occupies in the West Bank and tries hard to by-pass world condemnation when it cannot even stop its settlers to slow down their illegal expansion. What comes out or came out of GAZA (rockets) is connected with the settlers in the West Bank, who refuse to stop building, never mind leaving their illegal occupation. It does not fight for its life, but to keep its illegal expansion.
The letter was rejected by the Press.

editorial sympathies

22. It has struck me that every time there is an article on the Israel/Palestine conflict (World 2/02/10) there often appears an advertisement from the KBRM on the same page. This cannot possibly be sheer coincidence. It cannot be otherwise than that this organization is being tipped off by the Press. It is not so difficult to conclude where the sympathies and editorial policies of this newspaper lie.
