Amalek: Wipe-out Palestinian Lives

by Oui Mon Apr 29th, 2024 at 10:03:24 AM EST

Resettling of Gush Katif to erase the fault of Sharon from the history of Jewish supremacy.

"Many of the children who were evacuated from Gush Katif returned there as fighters. We must ensure that they return as settlers. With eternal victory, God willing, we will be victorious."

In call with war criminal Netanyahu, Joe Biden greenlights targeted strikes on Southern Gaza and Rafah, for Israel to stay at the negotiating table for a limited ceasefire and release of captive hostages. An Israeli delegation may join Qatari Hamas talks in Egypt today. Blinken is in Riyadh, will visit Israel and client state Jordan. The Day After ...

Amalek to wipe-out all Palestinian Iives, war on children, incubator babies in medical facilities, sniper killings of pregnant mothers and a village of 5,000 embryos in a single, targeted strike.

When an Israeli shell struck Gaza's largest fertility clinic in December, the explosion blasted the lids off five liquid nitrogen tanks stored in a corner of the embryology unit.

As the ultra-cold liquid evaporated, the temperature inside the tanks rose, destroying more than 4,000 embryos plus 1,000 more specimens of sperm and unfertilized eggs stored at Gaza City's Al Basma IVF Center.

The impact of that single explosion was far-reaching -- an example of the unseen toll Israel's six-and-a-half-month-old assault has had on the 2.3 million people of Gaza.

The embryos in those tanks were the last hope for hundreds of Palestinian couples facing infertility.

"We know deeply what these 5,000 lives, or potential lives, meant for the parents, either for the future or for the past," said Bahaeldeen Ghalayini, 73, the Cambridge-trained obstetrician and gynecologist who established the clinic in 1997.

"Part of the righting of the wrong in our thinking is to go back home to Gush Katif [the pre-2005 Gaza settlements]. We need to go back home because that's the Torah, that's historical justice and that's what's right. Today everyone understands that running away [from territory] brings war.

    We need to go back home and control the territory. We must also offer incentives for migration and legislation to allow capital punishment for terrorists. To execute them, one after the other, Nuchba terrorist after Nuchba terrorist, we must encourage them [the Gazans] to leave."

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich took the stage right after Ben-Gvir and said the following: "The resilience and determination of the homefront are the keys to victory in war. The people of Israel are at an important crossroads. We must decide whether to flee from terror or learn the lesson and settle the land all over. Without settlement, there is no security. We cried out back then, 'Don't give them guns' and they did not listen to us. We knew what it would lead to and we tried to prevent it. Unfortunately, we received a painful blow, but we are rising back up. We have a nation of lions. Many of the children who were evacuated from Gush Katif returned there as fighters. We must ensure that they return as settlers. With eternal victory, God willing, we will be victorious."

Tourism Minister Haim Katz represented Likud on stage, saying: "I am the son of parents who survived Auschwitz and made the decision to immigrate to the Land of Israel and build the country...Today we have the opportunity to get up and build, renew, and expand the Land of Israel. With spirit and faith, we will do it. For us this is the championship, there is no rerun, no extra time. Now together we will do and we will win." At the end of Katz's statement, rabbis, members of Knesset and ministers ascended the stage in order to sign the "Victory Pact and Renewal of Settlement in the Gaza Strip and Northern Samaria Region."

For many, the Settlements Bring Security conference was the start of correcting a historic wrong. The 2005 evacuation of the 21 Jewish settlements, and their 8,600 residents, from the coastal Gush Katif enclave under the Disengagement plan was a deep spiritual trauma for the religious-Zionist community, bent on completing the restoration of Jewish sovereignty over all of the Land of Israel [Eretz Yisrael: from the River to the Sea].

Some 18 years later, the idea of a Jewish return to Gush Katif is out of cold storage but is still highly controversial, both in Israel and the international community. Yet at the conference, almost a third of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition was in attendance.

Breaking :: Sharon Wins Likud Vote!!! - Israelis at Gaza Border - Hamas Voice | By Oui @BooMan - 25 Sept. 2005 |

TEL AVIV (Reuters) -- Likud's Central Committee convened in Tel Aviv before a vote on a motion by Sharon's rightist challenger, Benjamin Netanyahu, to bring the party's primary forward to November.

In what could be a defining moment in Israeli politics, Sharon stormed out of the meeting after his microphone was cut off as he twice attempted to begin a speech to the rowdy forum. Aides accused his opponents of sabotaging the sound system.

Sharon's critics, led by Netanyahu, have said the Gaza pullout after five years of Palestinian violence will only bring more cross-border attacks on Israel from militants dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state.

Sharon, who wants the party primary held closer to national parliamentary elections due by late next year, has said "radical extremists" have taken control of the Likud, which he helped to found three decades ago.

He has declined to say whether he would remain in the party if the 3,000-member Central Committee vote goes against him, raising speculation he may bolt and form a new centrist alliance that would tap into mainstream support for the Gaza pullout.

Israel's Ya'alon advocates use of Sunni proxies to fight ISIS and Iran | Dec 8, 2015 |

Not the United States but Israel clearly sees the difference between the line Turkey/Qatar of the Muslim Brotherhood (support of Hamas) and the Gulf States as the Sunni alliance to fight western proxy wars in the greater Middle East.

Of course we all recall just 13 years ago, Israel's PM Ariel Sharon urged president George Bush to fight a proxy war in Iraq for Israel's interest. Bush/Cheney complied and got nothing in return from Sharon/Olmert to support a Palestinian State by 2006.

PM Sharon was incapacitated by brain trauma and faulty medical treatment. The removal of settlements from  Gaza was the first step to also end the occupation of the West Bank except for the large settlements along the Green Line.

If the Jewish State of Israel had accepted the extended hand of peace from its Arab neighbours in 2002, 10/7 terror strike and break-down of security never would have happened.

My recent writings on the Gaza atrocities ... unimaginable, people of the human race are in a mindset of such a slaughter ... this is not a liberal democracy, but blind hate founded in stupendous religious fanaticism ... only America could have stopped the genocide ... once again they not only failed but were complicit in the act by providing unlimited lethal weapons, systems and aircraft ... gross failure too of the European Commission with former German Defense Minister Ursula Von der Leyen as leader. 🔥 🔥 🔥

Pure terrorism of the worst kind with unlimited military might decimating a civilian population ... HATE written all of the wall.

The land and sea blockade against Israel is working as Israel takes a strategic hit | Mondoweiss |

Netanyahu's plans to turn Israel into a regional transportation hub connecting Asia with Europe has just suffered a major setback. The reason is the maritime and land blockade against Israel in response to its genocide in Gaza.

Israel's aspirations to become the region's transportation hub have taken a hit. The maritime and land blockade against Israel to stop the genocide in Gaza is working, as one of Israel's main plans for a prospective "land bridge" connecting the Gulf countries with Israel and Europe has suffered an irrevocable setback. 

The Israel-centered India Middle East Europe Economic Corridors project (IMEC), which was first proposed by U.S. President Biden in September of last year during the G20 meetings, is facing an existential threat.

The IMEC aims to connect Asia and Europe via a system of railways and ports that pass through India, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, and Greece. 

The most recent blow to the IMEC project came last week when the UAE signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Turkey, Iraq, and Qatar to fund the IMEC's rival, the Development Road Project, which offers alternative railway and highway routes for shipping between Asia and Europe through Iraq to boost local, regional, and international trade. This development signals waning international confidence in Israel's ability to secure IMEC's future, especially in light of the genocide in Gaza.
