Some people have real distorted views about the Rockets from Gaza – myths  which are being launched mainly by Israeli and zionist biased media itself.

A truce was violated. Talking about myths the truce is the biggest propaganda and myth itself for the facts are, Israel is violating, attacking Palestine, Palestinians and their rights, lives, properties and pounding Gaza on daily basis by air, from naval ships and artillery over land. See the page: PALESTINE UNDER ISRAELI ATTACKS & VIOLATIONS ▶ TIMELINE

Palestine has a  legal right of self-defense. Whether Israel likes this or not, the disproportional violence with which it is “responding” after triggering the self-defense while attacking Palestine every  hour in any way possible is appalling and murderous. Around the writing of this blogpost, March 2012, in 4 days, 27 people have been killed.


The alleged tens of thousands of “rockets” from Gaza killed 21 Israeli people since 2001. This is 11 years. (Israeli source)

Here can be read the so called rockets from Gaza are “merely a psychological threat only for Israel”

21 People of “Israel” killed by Palestine’s self defense by so called ‘Rockets from Gaza’


During the Cast Lead massacre Dec2008-Jan 2009, over 1500 people were massacred of which 352 children.

In total over 1477 children have been killed, civilian minor, unarmed people, non combatants since 2000 only. It was using white phosphorus, depleted uranium, DIME, flechettes and more by International Law forbidden weaponry.

Israel killed at least 2,969 unarmed Palestinians, including 1,128 kids, with US weapons in violation of US laws

In a new report of June 2012 is displayed that research showed: Israeli forces killed 2,300 & injured 7,700 people in Gaza under blockade in the 5  years of the Israeli siege on Gaza. (Report)

Cast Lead Offensive in Numbers

A Statistical Report on: Persons Killed and Property Damaged or Destroyed in the Gaza Strip by the Israeli Occupation Forces during the war on Gaza, called “Cast Lead” (27 December 2008 – 18 January 2009). A full report can be downloaded here (PDF)


With  the daily data from UN OCHA and the data for launches from Gaza,  a graph shows the two lines next to each other. This graph by Yousef Munayyer of the Jerusalem Fund makes 2 points very clear about the dynamics of cross-border fire (at the moment of the publication) in 2011 and demonstrates two important facts:

  1.   Israeli continues to inflict exponentially greater causalities against Palestinians than the reverse
  2.   Palestinian projectiles are largely generated as a response to Israeli strikes

For the complete context of this data,  highly recommend to read the full post: Half the story: What @IDFSpokesperson leaves out about #Gaza

For the year 2012, Yousef Munayyer also gathered the data, which results in this graph:

Graph of Palestinian Projectiles vs Palestinian casualties due to Israeli attacks – by Yousef Munayyer of the Jerusalem Fund (Click to enlarges the image)

As you can see there are three noticeable moments where projectile launches from Gaza to Israel dramatically spiked. These are represented at points 2, 3 and 7. Further, there are also four moments where Palestinian casualties from Israeli fire spike that are not followed by an immediate increase in Palestinian projectile fire. These are represented at points 1, 4, 5, and 6.


The picture that emerges from all of this can be summed up as follows:

  1. The bulk of projectile fire from Gaza occurs as part of peaks or periodic spikes.
  2. These spikes are invariably preceded by significant Palestinian causalities caused by Israeli fire.
  3. Not all dramatic spikes in Palestinian casualties result in increased projectile fire from Gaza.

In the full post: #Israel and #Gaza: Context Behind Projectile Fire, Yousef Munayyer gives a complete analysis as well as facts of the data as displayed on all points in the graph for 2012.

But let’s behold some visual facts – An Iron Dome Missile from Israel to Gaza

A Guided missile a with accuracy remote killing device

For more information about the weaponry Israel deploys to massacre, test and sell it on read Israel’s weapons – A Crime on Humanity

To watch this zionist militant rape in pictures: Watch the photos of by US funded warfare to Israel.

Like the by Israeli denied nuclear arsenal, while research showed, shortly before Cast Lead 1000 GBU-39 were delivered by US to Israel, and 75 tons of depleted uranium have been found in the soil of Gaza: Report 1 | Report 2 | Report 3. Killing, not only on impact but up til today causing increasing diseases like cancer. Israel must feel pretty untouchable. I tell you. Depleted Uranium though, does not recognize the Erez border. It’s sickening effects also travel without a checkpoint.

Send in the warplanes every day, day in… day out..

Than Israel has to send out it’s troops to SEARCH for “Gaza Rockets”

Maybe someone can start using the brain. A “rocket” impact leaves very clear signs, craters, devastation and these soldiers on the picture of March 10, 2012 are not even wearing protective gear against explosives or left overs.

To Find this

A mortar shell, fitting on an A4 size paper.

Exam the scrapmetal or so called “Rocket” with bare hands

This you not need to “search”, daily impact craters in Gaza of WMD’s

These are not caused by weaponry which fits on an A4 sized paper

You get the picture now?

Let’s behold Sderot for a moment: 1 Photo. Not many words needed here:

So, Sderot, more a propaganda tool than a disaster zone.

And to fool you around a bit more, and ensure the empathy for the “eternal victim” Israel, they even are not ashamed to photoshop (or better say ethnic  cleanse a picture of a sewage pipe bomb shelter of an Asian woman into a Jewish women:

War trauma, kid? Not if you’re Asian

The weekend supplement of Ma’ariv ran an exhaustive investigation of the effect the Palestinian rocket threat has on Israeli children living within their range. On the left is the “illustration” by one Ophir Bagon, which opened the story. On the right is the original photo. See the difference?

On the left: as published in Israeli media | On the right: The original (hijacked) photo by Getty Images

And here is the pic as it first appeared, on Ma’ariv’s front page just two months ago:

Now let’s have a peek into one of the bombshelters:

Complaining for ruining one’s slumber, this tweep at what appears to be a cosy pyama party in the bunkers, not even bothered by the fact no shelter will protect any Gazan against ongoing Israeli violence, nor those, never waking up from their sleep while being bombed in their own beds….

So after all photoshopped lies. The myths from the pyama party, the propaganda and the Israeli new hype of the #StopTheRockets hashtag on twitter with which they want you to count rockets, Nov 10, 2012 the spokesperson tweets the next blatant lie:

In Nov 3, 2009 Israel hijacked a ship on high seas stating: “During the night a special marine force intercepted a ship that was supposed to be carrying cargo around 100 (nautical) miles from our shore,” the spokeswoman said, adding that the ship was sailing under an Antigua flag. Noting that 100NM out of shores are international waters. Hence,  Barak stated  in a defence ministry statement that said the ship was captured “near Cyprus,” but did not provide further details.

Weaponry was solely alleged to be for “anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles from Iran destined for the Lebanese Hezbollah militia” as  Israel stated after the act of piracy. Hezbollah by the way denied any involvement. (Source)

The blockade imposed by Israel does not stretch to Cyprus. It imposed unilateral a 3NM nautical blockade itself on Gaza which does not legitimize the hijack on high sea near Cyprus, and the tweet was misleading for on the own blog of IDF is clearly mentioned they intended to prevent delivery to Lebanon!

Israel’s dominion of the high seas seems to go beyond the 100NM as well as they seized another ship 200NM out of it’s shores  on May 15, 2011 (Source) Again justifying the ship is heading for Gaza.  Quoting: “The IDF believes the weapons found on board were destined for Hamas in Gaza.” And on April 23, 2012 another one 160NM out of it’s territories (Source)

While all these facts are ignore by MSM, and Israel itself launches these assumptions into main stream media, so you will believe it, it launches a lot more than many think, yet counting qassam rockets from Gaza:

Israel eternally neglects and fails to mention which, and amounts of it’s own deployed weaponry.

But in the end… Israel counts on the fact NO ONE remembers it’s lies about an hijack (crime) back in 2009 alleged Hezbollah (Lie) not even Hamas ‘shipment’ – according to high-seas-pirate Israel itself states- what an ‘official’ spokesperson is tweeting anyway…. You don’t remember right? And espcially not into which context.

Very clearly a false one. You are being fooled and especially by keeping info from you by shoving some info into your timelines to distract you from the real crimes it commits itself every single day. Again.

Israel is not looking for Peace



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
