    Top 5 Lies about Israel's Assault on Gaza

    By Jeremy R. Hammond ​

    Lie #1: Israel is only targeting legitimate military sites and is seeking to protect innocent lives. Israel never targets civilians.

    The Gaza Strip is one of the most densely populated pieces of property in the world. The presence of militants within a civilian population does not, under international law, deprive that population of their protected status, and hence any assault upon that population under the guise of targeting militants is, in fact, a war crime.

    Moreover, the people Israel claims are legitimate targets are members of Hamas, which Israel says is a terrorist organization. Hamas has been responsible for firing rockets into Israel. These rockets are extremely inaccurate and thus, even if Hamas intended to hit military targets within Israel, are indiscriminate by nature. When rockets from Gaza kill Israeli civilians, it is a war crime.

    Hamas has a military wing. However, it is not entirely a military organization, but a political one. Members of Hamas are the democratically elected representatives of the Palestinian people. Dozens of these elected leaders have been kidnapped and held in Israeli prisons without charge. Others have been targeted for assassination, such as Nizar Rayan, a top Hamas official. To kill Rayan, Israel targeted a residential apartment building. The strike not only killed Rayan but two of his wives and four of his children, along with six others. There is no justification for such an attack under international law. This was a war crime.

    Other of Israel's bombardment with protected status under international law have included a mosque, a prison, police stations, and a university, in addition to residential buildings.

    Moreover, Israel has long held Gaza under siege, allowing only the most minimal amounts of humanitarian supplies to enter. Israel is bombing and killing Palestinian civilians. Countless more have been wounded, and cannot receive medical attention. Hospitals running on generators have little or no fuel. Doctors have no proper equipment or medical supplies to treat the injured. These people, too, are the victims of Israeli policies targeted not at Hamas or legitimate military targets, but directly designed to punish the civilian population.

    Lie #2) Hamas violated the cease-fire. The Israeli bombardment is a response to Palestinian rocket fire and is designed to end such rocket attacks.

    Israel never observed the cease-fire to begin with. From the beginning, it announced a "special security zone" within the Gaza Strip and announced that Palestinians who enter this zone will be fired upon. In other words, Israel announced its intention that Israeli soldiers would shoot at farmers and other individuals attempting to reach their own land in direct violation of not only the cease-fire but international law.

    Despite shooting incidents, including ones resulting in Palestinians getting injured, Hamas still held to the cease-fire from the time it went into effect on June 19 until Israel effectively ended the truce on November 4 by launching an airstrike into Gaza that killed five and injured several others.

    Israel's violation of the cease-fire predictably resulted in retaliation from militants in Gaza who fired rockets into Israel in response. The increased barrage of rocket fire at the end of December is being used as justification for the continued Israeli bombardment, but is a direct response to the Israeli attacks.

    Israel's actions, including its violation of the cease-fire, predictably resulted in an escalation of rocket attacks against its own population.

    Lie #3) Hamas is using human shields, a war crime.

    There has been no evidence that Hamas has used human shields. The fact is, as previously noted, Gaza is a small piece of property that is densely populated. Israel engages in indiscriminate warfare such as the assassination of Nizar Rayan, in which members of his family were also murdered. It is victims like his dead children that Israel defines as "human shields" in its propaganda. There is no legitimacy for this interpretation under international law. In circumstances such as these, Hamas is not using human shields, Israel is committing war crimes in violation of the Geneva Conventions and other applicable international law.

    Lie #4) Arab nations have not condemned Israel's actions because they understand Israel's justification for its assault.

    The populations of those Arab countries are outraged at Israel's actions and at their own governments for not condemning Israel's assault and acting to end the violence. Simply stated, the Arab governments do not represent their respective Arab populations. The populations of the Arab nations have staged mass protests in opposition to not only Israel's actions but also the inaction of their own governments and what they view as either complacency or complicity in Israel's crimes.

    Moreover, the refusal of Arab nations to take action to come to the aid of the Palestinians is not because they agree with Israel's actions, but because they are submissive to the will of the US, which fully supports Israel. Egypt, for instance, which refused to open the border to allow Palestinians wounded in the attacks to get medical treatment in Egyptian hospitals, is heavily dependent upon US aid, and is being widely criticized within the population of the Arab countries for what is viewed as an absolute betrayal of the Gaza Palestinians.

    Even Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been regarded as a traitor to his own people for blaming Hamas for the suffering of the people of Gaza. Palestinians are also well aware of Abbas' past perceived betrayals in conniving with Israel and the US to sideline the democratically elected Hamas government, culminating in a counter-coup by Hamas in which it expelled Fatah (the military wing of Abbas' Palestine Authority) from the Gaza Strip. While his apparent goal was to weaken Hamas and strengthen his own position, the Palestinians and other Arabs in the Middle East are so outraged at Abbas that it is unlikely he will be able to govern effectively.

    Lie #5) Israel is not responsible for civilian deaths because it warned the Palestinians of Gaza to flee areas that might be targeted.

    Israel claims it sent radio and telephone text messages to residents of Gaza warning them to flee from the coming bombardment. But the people of Gaza have nowhere to flee to. They are trapped within the Gaza Strip. It is by Israeli design that they cannot escape across the border. It is by Israeli design that they have no food, water, or fuel by which to survive. It is by Israeli design that hospitals in Gaza have no electricity and few medical supplies with which to treat the injured and save lives. And Israel has bombed vast areas of Gaza, targeting civilian infrastructure and other sites with protected status under international law. No place is safe within the Gaza Strip.

    Haya mambo hakuna mtu anayeangalia, na sisi watu wengine tunapata habari kutoka West (CNN) na wengine wanapata kutoka kwenye TV zingine. Nashangaa Wabongo wanaosingizia HAMAS kila siku na wakati hawajui lolote linaloendelea. Kama hauko Israel au Palestina usiongee lolote kuhusu hao jamaa. Haijulikani ni nani kaanza kumpiga mwenzake. Siwezi kuiamini CNN peke yake ambayo najua jibu itakalosema ni HAMAS wameanza na Israel wanamalizia. Inawezekana hata Israel walianza hata kama walikuwa wanamuua mtu wa HAMAS lakini ndio walioanza. Na hii kitu ya kupiga mabomu kama wanavyofanya haitawasaidia na hawawezi kuimaliza HAMAS kwa sababu jamaa ni Grassroot, yaani ni raia wa kawaida na inavyozidi kupiga mabomu ndio inaongeza Hamas zaidi, kwa sababu wakifa watu 400, ni sawa na HAMAS 800 wameongezeka na hii kitu haiwezi kuwasaidia. Hata wauwe watu wazima woote Palestina haiwezi ku-solve kitu. Hata mimi kama familia yangu imeuliwa nitakuwa tayari kubeba bomu au kitu chochote ili kuwauwa waliowauwa ndugu zangu. Na uzuri kama Dini yangu inaniambia nitaenda Paradise kama nikifanya hivyoo, ndio kabisaa.

    Hata nchi za kiarabu zimegwanyika kuhusu swala hili kwa sababu mbili:
    (a) Wanajua kabisa kuwa Hamas ndio waliofanya uchokozi, tena kwa makusudi kabisa wakijua kuwa iwapo Israel ita-retaliate, basi watatumia zile sababu za kihistoria kuwa Israel inawaonea wapelestina.

    (b) Wanajua kuwa Israel inapopiga bomu kumlenga hamas mmoja, linaua watu wengine wengi wasiokuwa na hatia. Kwa mfano walipomlenga yule kiongozi wa hamas, waliuwa watoto wake 11 na wake zake wanne pamoja na majirani wengine wengi sana. Ingawa ni kweli kuwa Israel hutoa maonyo kuwataka raia waondoke kwenye maeneo wanayotaka kulipua, lakini raia wengi wamekuwa hawana sehemu nyingine ya kukimbilia kwa vile nchi yao ni ndogo sana. Kwa hiyo hubaki kusubiri waje walipuliwe tu.

    Jambo la kuudhi kuwa kuwa Israel imeshatamka wazi kuwa inataka kuwafundisha Hamas kuwa wakitupa kombora moja basi wasitegemee kuwa Israel nayo itajibu kwa kombora moja, badala yake waategemee kipigo kikubwa, yaani kitakachoua watu wengi hata wasiokuwa na hatia.

    Hata sijui nimalizie vipi, lakini nadhani pamoja na madhambi ya israel ya kutojali kuwa inauwa watu wengi wasiokuwa na hatia, bado naamini kuwa vita hii imechochewa na hamas. Nadhani walitaka attention fulani, lakini wameshangaa sana kuona kuwa wapelestina wenzao wa West Bank, Waarabu wa Misri, Saudi Arabia na wale wa Jordan wameanza kwa kutamka wazi wazi kuwa hamas wao ndio walikuwa wachokozi.

    Ndio maana nasema sisi tunaopata habari through TV hatujui lolote ni bora kukaa kimya, kwa sababu hatujui ni nani ameanza na nani kamalizia period. Mbona hao HAMAS ni kweli walikuwa kimya kipindi chote cha Truce? na nani kalianzisha sasa hivi. Mimi ninapata habari through CNN siwezi kusikiliza inaponiambia kwamba ni HAMAS ndio wameanza kwa sababu ndicho hicho watakachokesema period. Na wewe ungekuwa huko ndugu zako wanauwawa ndio ungejua. Na hii haiwezi kuwasaidia Israel kwa sababu hii kitu itakuwepo mioyoni mwa watoto wa Kipalestina Milele. Mpaka wabadilishe Tactics zao. kwa sababu hawawezi kuwauwa woote na watakaobaki watakuwa na hasira milele.

    Du, Mzee wangu YournameisMINE umeamua kunitupia yale ya nguoni kabisa; ngoja niaze kwa kukupongeza kwa kuonyesha ukali wa makombora yako.

    Sielewi kuwa post yangu imekukera vipi hadi ufikie kunitupia hayo ya nguoni. Ni afadhali ungenisahihisha hizo namba tu kwa vile ni kweli sikuzikalili sawasawa. Nilisikiliza Al-Jazeera leo asubuhi ndipo nikasikia wakiwa wanaoengelea hao victims 4 na victims wengine 11 ambapo nilinasa kama ilikuwa familia yake. Samahani tena kosa dogo kama hilo ambalo hata hivyo halikuwa theme ya post yangu. Baadaye nimepitia habari na kujua kuwa kweli victim wanne walikuwa ni watoto wake, na wale wengine kumi na moja walikuwa majirani, halafu wale wengine wengi ni walioumia. Samahani kwa hilo, naona lilikugusa sana mpaka ukapoteza diplomacy.

    Issue niliyokuwa naongelea ni kuwa wao israel kumwinda mtu mmoja, wamejikuta wanaua wengine wengi. Halafu yote haya yametokana na hamas kuwa wanarusha makombora yao huko Israel. Mimi ninaona kuwa kitendo cha hamas kurusha makombora yale huenda kilikuwa ni uchokozi wa kutafuta attention fulani. Sasa kama huo nao ni uwongo basi tuliache, ila nitajibu mengine uliyotaka kunifundisha kama ifuatavyo.

    1. Nina wasiwasi kama wewe unajua historia kamili ya hamas; mimi siijui sawa sawa na wala sina haja ya kuijua. Hata hivyo ninafamu kuwa Hamas ilianzisha intifada mwaka 1987 wakati nikiwa namalizia shule pale UDSM. Mwaka huo huo Professor Haroub Othamn alitoa mhadhara pale Nkurumah kuhusu somo hilo. Generalization yako kuwa walianzishwa na Israel ili ku-counter PLO hayana msingi kabisa, kwa vile intifada ilianza mapambano ya kisiasa moja kwa moja ikiwa dhidi ya Israel baada ya hayati Yasser Arafat, wakati angali anaishi Libya, kutamka kuwa atalitambua taifa la Israel na kuitaka Israel nayo ilitambue taifa la Palestine kusudi yawe mataifa mawili jirani. Msimamo huo wa Arafat uliwaudhi hardliner ndipo ndipo mapambano ya intifada na kuanza kwa suicide bombing. Ukweli mdogo uliopo katika madai yako ni kuwa kabla hamas haijaanza mapambano ya kisiasa ilikuwa ni charity organization ya kusaidia kujenga misikiti na mashule hapo Gaza. Wakati huo kwa vile Gaza haikuwa na serikali yake, serikali israle ilikuwa inatoa fedha kwa charities mbali mbali kutoa huduma za jamii. Tangu hamas walipoanza mapambano ya kisasa mwaka 1987 hawajawahi kusaidiwa na israel. Kama nilivyosema hapo juu, sidhani kama kweli wewe unaijua historia halisi ya hamas kiasi cha kutoa authoritative lecture hapa.
    2. Madai kuwa Israel imeishambulia Gaza kwa sababu ya uchaguzi ujao nayo naona hayana msingi wowote hasa kwa vile serikali ya israel ya sasa iliyoko madarakani ni ya mseto na kuna mawaziri zaidi ya mmoja walioko serikalini wanowania uwaziri mkuu kwenye uchaguzi huo. Kama ulivyosema, mpaka sasa wagombeaji wakuu walioko serikalini ni pamoja na Waziri wa Mambo ya Nchi za Nje Mama Tzipi Livni na Waziri wa Ulinzi Bwana Ehud Barak. Mgombea mwingine ni wa kutoka chama cha upinzani bwana Benjamin Netanyahu. Kwenye vita hii waisraeli wote wako pamoja ambapo huyo kiongozi mkuu wa upinzani Bwana Benjamin Netanyahu amekuwa msitari wa mbele akishirikiana na serikali kutangaza uhalali wa vita ile, hakosekani kwenye TV za magharibi kila siku. Sioni kama unaweza kutuonyesha ni nani kati ya hao watatu atakayefaidika na vita ile. Vile vile unasahau kuwa vita huwa wakati mwingine inasababisha walioko madarakani kupoteza umaarufu kama ilivyotokea kwenye ile vita ya Lebanon. Kwa hiyo madai yako kuwa vita hii imesababishwa na electoral politics za Isarel hayana ukweli wowote.
    3. Kuhusu bias kwenye post sijakuelewa wewe umeiona wapi. Theme kubwa ya post yangu bado ni kweli kama ilivyo:
      1. Ni kweli kuwa hamas wamepata ugumu wa kupewa support kutoka Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan na kwa Wa-Palestine wenzao wa West Bank kwa sababu inajulikana kuwa wao ndio walioanza kurusha yale makombora. Usitegemee kutupa mawe kwa jirani yako halafu eti yeye akuchekee. Ni kweli kuwa israel ina ubabe wake, lakini kama hamas walikuwa na busara wasingekuwa wa kwanza kurusha makombora yale.
      2. Ni kweli kuwa kila mara Israel wanapomwinda hamas mmoja huwa wanaua raia wengine wengi wasiokuwa na hatia. Huo ni ukatili unaofanywa na israel kwa raia wa kawaida mabao wanaishi jirani na watu wa hamas. Kila mara IDF wamekuwa wanatuma ujumbe kuwataka raia waondoke kabla hawajaangusha mabomu lakini ukweli ni kuwa wanafanya hivyo wakijua kuwa raia hao wanakuwa hawana pa kukimbilia. Kama hamas wangekuwa na busara ya kujua kuwa wakiwachokoza isarel watasababisha raia wao wengi kuumia wasingefanya vile.
      3. Ni kweli kuwa Israel imesema kuwa wanataka kutoa fundisho kwa hamas kuwa wao wakirusha roketi moja wasitegemee kuwa israel nayo itarusha roketi, badala yake itatoa kipigo kikubwa. Tena hayo yamesemwa leo hii na mama Meja Avital Leibovitch akidai kuwa israel itaingia na kubomoa infrastructure yote ya hamas bila kujali hamas walirusha makombora mangapi.
    Ninakubaliana nawe kuwa "Sio lazima kuchangia ktk kila mada hasa kama hujaweka bias zako kwenye check." Nadhani na wewe binafsi utaacha kuchangia mada bila kuweka bias zako pembeni, chukua muda kusoma na kuelewa michango ya wenzako kwa mapana na marefu. Badala ya sisi kubishana na kufundishana historia na siasa tusizojua, ni afadhali tuendelee kuwaombea jamaa hawa wasiendelee kuuana, ila wajenge moyo wa kupendana na kuishi pamoja wakitambua kuwa wote wana maisha yanayofanana.

    Hizo ni propaganda dhidi ya Israel; ukweli ni kuwa Isarael ina haki ya kujilinda. Nadhubutu kusema kuwa Israel wamevumila sana hadi kuamua kufanya walichofanya maana Hamas ndo siku zote wachokozi na kama ada, Magaidi wa Hamas, Islamic Jihad na Hizbollah wao siku zote wakipiga Israel hawaangalii kama kuna raia au wanalenga jeshi la Israel na Isarel wakijibu Maadui wa Israel wamekuwa wakipiga propaganda kuwa Israel wanaua raia wakati hao magaidi (Hizbollah na hamasi) wamekuwa wakijificha kwenye makazi ya raia ili Israel wakijibu waonekana wanafanya uhalifu wa kibinadamu (kumbuka 2006 Israel vs Hizbollah huko Lebanon).

    Nadhani ni vema Israel ifanye hivyo kuwasaka magaidi hata kama wamejificha kwa raia na kuwatumia wanawake na watoto kama ngao, hii itasaidia raia kutokubali kutumika na magaidi hao.

    I just fail to understand what is so complex about the Israeli attack? Why are intellectuals who should know and understand better not able to take a clear stand for the oppressed and against the oppressor? Tell me what is complex about the following:



    Israel is an artificial state created by European powers in early 1940s in the land and country that was British colony called Palestine. Israel could as well have been created in Argentina or Uganda as, in fact, it was proposed. Israel is thus a creation of imperialism, its bridgehead in the Middle East.
    Palestininas were houdned out of Palestine to make way for Jewish immigrants. Generations of Palestinians have lived and grown up in refugee camps.
    Israel has no definite boundaries nor citizenship. Its boundaries have been expanding since 1948 and after every war it has occupied more and more lands. Any Jew anywhere in the world is automotically an Israeli citizen.
    The state of Israel is officially based on a racist/discriminato ry ideology of Zionism not different from SA apartheid. In fact Israel was one of the biggest collaborator of apartheid SA.
    Israel is a military state and cannot exist without military adventures as its 60 year history shows.
    It is an occupying power with the fourth biggest army and the receipient of largest amount of military and other aid from the US.
    Hamas and various other organisations and movements of Palestinians are essentialy resistance movements against an occupying power doing all that they can, including using home-made primitive rockets, to defend their human dignity to live in freedom. How on earth can any rational being – let alone a human being – equate the fourth largest army in the world with primitive rockets of Hamas and turn the victim into a perpetrator? ! Is this our sense of even-handedness and justice?! If so, it is outrageously perverted ....


    Is all this too "complex" for African intellectuals to understand when we in Africa have suffered most under Western imperialism/ expansionism for the last five centuries? God save us from such gross ignorance ...!

    Hivi hawa wazungu wametukndamiza kwa miiaka 500 au tunapigwa bao hapa kwa sababu ya hasisra za HAMAS?? Maananijuavyo mimi colonisation ilianza Africa late 1800. Na before 1600 biashara ya utumwa na westerners ilikuwa haijaanza. Sikumbuki kama waarabu tunaowatetea walishaanza kutubeba kama watumwa by then. Wanahistoria naomba msaada kwenye tuta???????

    Loh, namuonea huruma huyo unayemblast,
    lakini twende pole pole mkuu. Ukweli hata mimi sehemu zaidi ya 5 nilizosoma last week zilieleza kuwa four wives na 11 children out of 12 children. Na zaidi ya yote, wakamquote mtoto aliyepona akisema kuwa baba yake hakujua kama angeuawa.

    Huyo bwana/bibi ametumia vyanzo vilivyopo kupata knowlegde, huna haja ya ku mblast namna hivyo mkuu. na ni kweli pia leo nimesoma sehemu kuwa watu waliouawa ni kama ulivyoeleza wewe hapo juu, hivyo hata mimi sina hakika kipi ni kipi.

    Unajua kuna watu wengine wana tabia za ajabu za kuamini kuwa wenzao wote walio na mitazamo tofauti na ya kwao basi ama ni wajinga au ni watu wabaya. Nasikitkia kuwa nilitumia muda mrefu kumjibu, lakini dawa nzuri huwa ni kuachana nao.

    1. Nimesoma article sehemu, sijui kama ina ukweli ila inaweza kutoa angalau mwangaza juu ya hoja yako hapo juu kuhusiana na HAMAS. Ninanukuu baadhi ya maneno:
      "It is not a well known fact, but it will not surprise those who know anything about the history of the Taliban in Afghanistan, that Israel in many ways initially created this monster but later lost control over it.
      Richard Sale, a UPI Correspondent, wrote an illuminating article on the origin of Hamas in which he pointed out that, "According to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials, beginning in the late 1970s, Tel Aviv gave direct and indirect financial aid to Hamas over a period of years."
      Israel "aided Hamas directly ‑ the Israelis wanted to use it as a counterbalance to the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization)," said Tony Cordesman, Middle East analyst for the Center for Strategic Studies. Israel's support for Hamas "was a direct attempt to divide and dilute support for a strong, secular PLO by using a competing religious alternative," said a former senior CIA official."
