Israel commits State Terrorism

The flagrant practice of State Terrorism perpetrated by Israel, replying to terrorist acts with terrorism, can only be counter-productive. If Tel Aviv thinks that destroying civilian infrastructures will being Cpl. Shalit back, it is right – in a body bag.

If the UK had replied to terrorist acts by the IRA by massacres of civilians in Belfast, the whole world would have shouted out in horror.

When Moscow launches an operation to liquidate terrorist elements or to exterminate bandits in Chechnya, a hail of criticism falls on Moscow from those countries which protect the leaders of the “rebels” or “freedom fighters”, the international terrorists whose main aim is to destabilise the State of the Russian Federation.

When the Russian authorities acted in Beslan to free the children being held by these pigs, the European Union even asked for explanations. Yet when the State of Israel massacres Palestinians enjoying a picnic on the beach or when great destruction is caused to free a hostage, the world is quiet.

How can Tel Aviv expect to win the propaganda war, claim the moral high ground and win the hearts and minds of the international community by destroying civilian infrastructures in Gaza with military hardware, namely an act of State Terrorism? However wrong, criminal and unacceptable the kidnapping of Corporal Gilad Shalit was, an action carried out not by “militants” as some say but rather by terrorists, it is equally unacceptable to target bridges and power stations with military hardware.

This is a war crime and it is State Terrorism However Tel Aviv will never figure on the US State Department’s black list on terrorism basically because Tel Aviv does what it wants. It is one of the foundations of the New World Order, where disrespect for the law seems to be a rule and not an exception.
