Surprise Surprise, Hamas didn't kidnap & kill the 3 Israeli teens after all

When the bodies of three Israeli teenagers, kidnapped in the West Bank, were found late last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words. "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay," he said, initiating a campaign that eventually escalated into the present conflict in the region. 

But now, officials admit the kidnappings were not Hamas's handiwork after all. 

Israeli Militia's Modus Operandi

Quote by Ben Gurion telling Zionists to terrorise Palestinians

No one should be shocked at how Israel's militia works - it has been targetting civilians since its inception and terror and destruction has been its way.

Israel had a chance to leave that past behind, but it has chosen the path of terrorism.

The Israeli militia has simply been following the path laid down by its predecessors and one day soon there will be a demand for justice.

No sane person sides with babykillers.

Great interview where Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada tells it how it is, calls out the BBC in their biased reporting. Brilliant watch. More anchors need to be called out like this.

Details of Hamas & Islamic Jihad's 10 year truce offer to Israel

This is the sort of content that will often get "lost" and ignored when pro-israeli aggression individuals state that Israel has "no partner to talk to" instead of admitting that it is their own side which is preventing any peaceful resolution.

a report in Hebrew-language daily Maariv which quoted a "high-profile" Palestinian source stating that Hamas and Islamic Jihad were willing to sign a truce upon agreement of ten simple conditions:

Calling out British Pakistani MP Sajid Javid

I only really heard of Sajid Javid, who is a rising Tory MP a few months ago when he was given a glowing report on some Pakistani tv channel.

They presented him as a hard working child of Pakistani immigrant parents who had worked hard and done good.

Just a few days later, I came across the true nature of this man.

His views are best summed up from from December 2012. Instead of telling you in my own words what this man represents, I will just finish with a quote from the article:

Names and ages of Palestinians killed

Because they are not just numbers:

#GazaUnderAttack protests outside BBC Offices in MediaCityUK on 12 July 2014

This is the first time I have attended protests since 2003, when 2 million people couldn't prevent the bloodlust of the UK and US governments.

First protest was tiny, around 200/300 people in Manchester Picadilly Gardens.

The second one was larger, in MediaCityUK, outside the BBC offices. It was also protesting the very biased coverage that the BBC has broadcast, which seemed to be limited to humanising the Israelis and defending their "right" to destroy Gaza to an extent that even Israeli newspapers like Haaretz were less biased.

This one was bigger, but once again not of a size that it should have been
