Peace or Armageddon:
The Stakes Could Not Be Higher
William Thomas / William Thomas Online

(November 22, 2023) — Hamas has announced a 4-day, “mutual and unconditional” ceasefire starting Thursday, Nov. 23. Two Egyptian security delegations will maintain security in Gaza, as 50 women and children under the age of 19 taken hostage on Oct. 7 could be freed in return for 150 Palestinian women and teenagers among 7,200 prisoners in Israeli detention. Israel says the “humanitarian pause” will be extended by 1 day for each additional batch of 10 hostages released.

Another 150 Palestinian prisoners could be subsequently freed in exchange for 50 more hostages. (Freeing Palestinian prisoners thrugh hostage swaps was a primary objective of Hamas in their Oct. 7 raids.) Though both sides have vowed to renew the carnage, Qatar’s chief negotiator hopes instead that this breakthrough would “be a seed to a bigger agreement and a permanent cease of fire.” Knowledgable sources say a “Two-State” proposal could be tabled at the UN within three weeks.

Go Figure
The Palestinians are the sons and daughters of Abraham.
The Israelis are the sons and daughters of Abraham.
Looking at the events in Gaza, who are the anti-Semites?

Israeli Children Sing,
“We Will Anhilate Everyone in Gaza” 

The Israeli press reports that this video created by Israeli advocacy group, The Civil Front, was shared, then deleted, on Israeli public broadcaster Kan News’ online platforms. The original archived link is here. Kan News’ X account is archived here.

The children in the video ranged from the ages of 6 to 12 years old and were singing an updated version of Gouri’s poem. The children were reportedly among those evacuated “from the Gaza envelope settlements.”

Jewish Press published its translation of the lyrics:

On the Gaza beach the autumn night is descending
Planes are bombing, ruin follows ruin
See the IDF crossing the borderline
To annihilate the Swastika carriers
In one more year
There won’t be anything left there
And we’ll return safely to our home
In one more year
We’ll eliminate them all and go back to plowing our fields

What else would they sing when the leader of their nation tells the world these “barbaric,” “subhuman,” Palestinian “animals” must be “exterminated” because their very existence (as the wrong sort of Semitic families) “threatens the existence” of Israel — despite all of its surveillance, fences, walls, fighter-bombers, tanks, gunships, US billions and nuclear bombs.

This might be why Palestinian parents have told their angry kids, raised without prospects within prison walls for generations, “The Israelis want to kill you.” On Nov. 16, 2023, U.N. experts and scholars warned that grave violations committed by Israel against Palestinians point to a “genocide in the making.”

Al-Aqsa Mosque Atop Dome of the Rock

Oct. 7 Attacks Were Triggered by Latest
Desecration of Palestine’s Holiest Site

On Oct. 5, 832 Israelis stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem under the protection of Israeli forces. Meanwhile, Israeli extremists held “provocative marches” inside Jerusalem’s Old City and outside its walls, “attacking Palestinians and their property.”

Muslims believe that Al-Aqsa’s Dome of the Rock is where the Prophet Muhammad ascended to the “Divine Presence” on the back of a winged horse. – This Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary) is the third holiest site in Islam. Some Jews believe that the compound is the site of a Jewish temple, though Earth-penetrating imagery has failed to disclose any ancient foundations.

What Kind of God Sanctions This?
“The collective retribution against innocents is a familiar tactic employed by colonial rulers,” writes Chris Hedges. “Israel has spoken this blood-soaked language of violence to the Palestinians since Zionist militias seized more than 78% of historic Palestine, destroyed some 530 Palestinian villages and cities and killed about 15,000 Palestinians in more than 70 massacres. Some 50,000 Palestinians were ethnically cleansed between 1947 and 1949 to create the state of Israel in 1948.

“How can you trap 2.3 million people in Gaza, half of whom are unemployed, in one of the most densely populated spots on the planet for 16 years, reduce the lives of its residents, half of whom are children, to a subsistence level, deprive them of basic medical supplies, food, water and electricity, use attack aircraft, artillery, mechanized units, missiles, naval guns and infantry units to randomly slaughter unarmed civilians and not expect a violent response?

“Marek Edelman, was the deputy commander of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. After the war, he condemned Zionism as a racist ideology used to justify the theft of Palestinian land. He thundered against Israel’s appropriation of the Holocaust to justify its repression of the Palestinian people.

‘Religious nationalism is to religion what National Socialism was to socialism,’ said Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz, whom Isiah Berlin called ‘the conscience of Israel.’ He foresaw that prolonged occupation of the Palestinians would inevitably spawn ‘concentration camps’.”

Israel Admits it Killed its Own at Nova Music Festival

An Israeli police investigation into the Hamas attack on the Nova music festival near the Gaza border on 7 October revealed that an Israeli attack helicopter killed some of the attendees, Haaretz reported on 18 November.

According to a police source, an investigation into the incident showed that an Israeli combat helicopter that arrived at the scene from the Ramat David base fired at Hamas fighters and other Palestinians who crossed through the border fence from Gaza into Israel, but also fired on some of the Israelis attending the music festival. According to the police, 364 people were killed there.

Israeli Apache Helicopters Killed Own Soldiers, Civilians on 7 October
During an emergency cabinet meeting on 7 October, with the Hamas attack still underway, Israel’s influential finance minister and occupation/settler leader, Bezalel Smotrich, urged the Israeli army to “hit Hamas brutally and not take the matter of the captives into significant consideration.”

IDF killed 260+ Israeli Civilians during Operation Al-Aqsa Flood
During the terror attack on the Nova festival near Kibbutz Beeri, just 5 km from the Gaza concentration camp, Hamas “resistance fighters” took some 240 Israelis captive, including soldiers, “settlers”, and foreigners. Israeli pilots flying 28 Apache combat helicopters fired chain-gun cannon shells and Hellfire missiles at hundreds of mixed Hamas/civilian targets in Israeli territory throughout the day.

Palestinian children held in cages at Israeli detention camps.

Self-censored images of unhinged bloodletting:
•   South First Responders video footage in kibbutz immediately after massacre — too horrific to post here.
•   Graphic footage of crushed Palestinian children extricated from Gaza ruins similarly cannot be shown here.
•   Palestinian families are not Hamas. They are the sacrificial pawns of Hamas.

How do these atrocities equate?
