Ramadan in Gaza (Israel Says: You’re Welcome)


From The Star 12 Aug 2010:

Muslims in Gaza make do with essential foodstuff during Ramadan
By ZANI SALLEH

GAZA CITY: Like Muslims elsewhere, the faithful here look forward to spending time in worship and being close to family and friends during Ramadan.

Despite often being without proper meals and jobs, families here feel blessed that there are enough compassionate and helpful hands to make life easier for them in this troubled land during this auspicious season.

Is he talking about the evilzalimkejam Israelis – who during Ramadan and Eid al-Adha 2009 provided Gaza with 11,000 head of cattle (worth 8.8 million meals of beef)?

Or maybe he means the over 1,000,000 tons of humanitarian supplies delivered by Israel in 18 months up to July 2010 (nearly 1 ton of aid for every man, woman and child in Gaza).

Or it could be more recent events he is referring to, like the 94,500 tons of supplies from January to March 2010, including:

  • 40,000 tons of wheat (worth 53 million loaves of bread)
  • 2,760 tons of rice (worth 69 million servings)
  • 1,987 tons of clothes and footwear (equivalent weight of 3.6 million pairs of jeans)
  • 553 tons of milk powder and baby food (worth over 3.1 million days of baby formula)

It must be all part of some sinister, imperialist, Zionist plan! Probably the Juice intend to make Gazans die from heart attacks and stroke, because Palestinians are currently the 3rd (women) and 8th (men) most obese people in the world:

Fortunately, those Zionazis didn’t count on the Ramadan fast slimming all those fat-but-starving Palestinians down to a more healthful size (silly Juice!):

The nearly 1.5 million people in the city that had been ripped by Israeli bombings, started their ritual fast and abstinence on Tuesday. On the eve of Ramadan, many families were seen looking for things and stocking up their kitchens with essential foodstuff for sahur (the pre-dawn meal) in preparation for the dawn-to-dusk fast the next day.

Members of the humanitarian aid mission under the banner of 1Malaysia Putera Club had their first experience of performing the terawih (special prayers after the mandatory isya prayers) on the first night in Gaza. “In Malaysia, after terawih, we would sit around and chat.

“Here, some of the followers would collect some leftovers from the breaking of fast session in preparation for their sahur,” said a Malaysian volunteer.

For Abd Al-Rahman Bashir, 24, who works only when jobs are available, he feels lucky to be a volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent.

“Although I cannot afford a life of luxury, I make do with whatever is available and affordable – one at a time.

Yeah, the kind of luxuries available to the ‘poor, starving, deprived’ Gazans like this:

Or that:

Ooh, maybe some of this:

Or how about a trip to Sunway Gazoon:

“Life itself is not static. It is variable. There’s nothing here to guarantee our safety. We have to keep moving on, “ he said, with a tinge of philosophy.

“Anyway, in this sacred month, nothing in this world can keep us down.”

Abd Al-Rahman, who lives in Der Al Balah, does not appear worried about his family and neighbours.

He sees the children playing happily next to the Culture Ministry in Gaza-Mustafa Hafez Street, in the part of a downtown area where rubbles of destruction stand.

These children, who live near a spot hit by Israeli missiles, seem to be in high spirits that appear to be sending out a message: “Please, we are not asking for a dollar or a cent – simply a peaceful surrounding to live in.

Maybe if Hamas didn’t send 3000 rockets a year to Israel, Israel wouldn’t send some missiles back.

And it’s quite easy to tell what spots Israeli missiles don’t hit – it’s basically any UN/humanitarian/holyreligious building that Hamas is not using as a combat base, including…

Mosques:

Schools:

Buildings designated for foreign journalists:

And your house:

Friendly word of advice: Be careful who you invite into your house for Raya, it could be a Hamas fighter who will proceed to set up a mortar launcher on your buka puasa table!

And of course, those kids can easily find ‘a peaceful surrounding to live in’… It’s wherever Hamas heroes don’t use them as a human shield:

PallyHumanshield02

PS. Hey, is there any learned and devout scholar who can tell me whether it is considered okay to accidentally swallow some rocket launch smoke, or does that count as breaking puasa?

    It’s Wang Ehsan + humanitarian aid + tunnel economy – domestic economy.

    Wang Ehsan (Makanan Ehsan?): coming from Israel bcos Gazans cannot fish beyond 3 batu nautika but Israel is generous to give ikan segar and fresh eggs (or is it still ikan busuk and telur pecah like when Diego Bunuel went to Gaza?) and other amenities.

    Humanitarian aid: Got plenty although may be seasonal.

    Tunnel economy: Since got no domestic economy (something to do with Israel’s habit of uprooting trees, even in Lebanon) the peluang pekerjaan as penggerudi and pembawa barang dalam terowong are some of the jobs left, apart from being members of Hamas security forces of course.

    Domestic economy no got lah, got big walls and naval blockade, so cannot import export stuff. Export must be via shipment or the goods may be considered illegal, so cannot lo.

    Annie Jacobsen sounds the alarm regarding the possibility of a shoulder fired missile bringing down a US commercial jet.
    http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/shoulder-fired-missiles-an-ever-present-threat-to-u-s-planes/?singlepage=true

    Two years after 9/11, Colin Powell stated that “no threat is more serious to aviation” than shoulder-fired missiles. Not much has changed.

  4. pinky&brain Says:

    Well, there’s one thing that has changed: A year after 9/11 an El Al jet was nearly taken down by a shoulder-fired missile in Kenya. As a result, by 2006, Israel developed a solution to the problem and installed it on every single Israeli plane. The system is called Flight Guard. No one else uses it.

    Palestinian militants ransack former Gush Katif greenhouses
    Damage is irreparable; international donors had purchased the greenhouses from evacuated settlers for benefit of the Palestinians.

    Some 200 dunams of greenhouse space in the Gaza Strip were ransacked recently by dozens of armed Palestinians and residents of Khan Yunis.

  11. pinky&brain Says:

    While Nasrallah claims he wants to see food items and medications delivered to Gaza, Palestinians in Lebanon are literally locked up inside their camps every evening. Banned from working legally, Palestinians in Lebanon have to depend on international aid and donations, which Lebanon monitors and restricts. This has resulted in intolerable living conditions. The post- Syrian Lebanese governments exhibited a tendency to improve the living conditions for the Palestinians on its soil; nonetheless, Hizbullah has been most fierce in fighting that trend. Waving the flag of the Palestinian cause, and staunchly supporting the “right of return to Palestine,” Hizbullah has been obstructing every attempt to improve the livelihood of Palestinians in Lebanon.

    Furthermore, it has been igniting and financing unrest between Palestinian factions, as Hamas is not shy in showcasing its alliance with both Hizbullah and Iran.

    Today, while Nasrallah and Hizbullah are considered iconic symbols of the fight against Israel and the defenders of the Palestinian cause, Palestinians in Lebanon are dying young, uneducated and poor, all in the name of preventing them from being naturalized in Lebanon in order to “keep their love for Palestine.”

    This tactic for persecuting the Palestinians is not unique to Hizbullah; it has been played by many Arab countries and in fact by some of the countries claiming to be most friendly to the Palestinians.

    For several weeks, police have been quietly searching for a serial killer who stabbed poor Black victims in Flint, Michigan, then fled to Leesburg, Virginia, where his sister lives. Many family members of the victims were angry that the police did not disclose the White identity of the murderer, saying it was racist. But, now, it’s very clear why they hid his identity and true visual description: Elias Abuelazam is a Palestinian Arab illegal alien who was there on an expired passport.

    In 2010, the number of Arabs in Judea and Samaria is inflated by 900,000 (1.6 million and not 2.5 million) through the inclusion of 400,000 overseas residents, a double-count of 200,000 Jerusalem Arabs (who are counted as Israeli Arabs by Israel and as West Bank Arabs by the Palestinian Authority), and by ignoring annual net-emigration since 1950 (e.g. 17,000 in 2009), etc. Meanwhile, a World Bank study documents a 32% “inflation” in Palestinian birth numbers.

    Among the expressed intentions of the pilgrimage is that “Muslims who have heard the call of the Lord Jesus should not be prohibited from entering the Church.” The idea refers to some episodes that have occurred in France and Algeria, where many Muslims who wanted to be baptized, have been impeded by priests and bishops, fearful of the consequences and overly precautious….

    Israeli economy grows at double the expected rate:

    This ought to give the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) people nightmares.

    In the second quarter of the year the Israeli economy rose 4.7%, shattering forecasts of 2.9%.

    The enormous growth comes after an increase of 3.3% in the previous half of the year and a drop of 1.5% in the first half of last year.

  18. cornucopia Says:

    On 9/11, the ‘Palestinians’ danced and handed out candy in the streets to celebrate the deaths of 3,000 Americans at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in a field in Pennsylvania.

  19. cornucopia Says:

    Nine years later, the Hamas ‘Palestinian’ terror group – which led many of those 9/11 celebrations – has come out in support of the construction of a mosque on the site of Ground Zero to celebrate Islam’s ‘victory’ on 9/11/2001.

    This is the amazing story of a young Jew who instead of joining Iranian army became outstanding IDF soldier who took part in Operation Cast Lead.
    A religious Iranian Jew escaped from Iran, came to Israel and joined the IDF and is now an officer in a paratrooper corps. Of course, everything about him has to be hidden because his family is still in Iran – they didn’t know he was leaving until after he was gone

    Tony Blair’s anti-Semitic sister-in-law

    Lauren Booth’s main qualification to discuss the Middle East is that she is the sister-in-law of quartet envoy and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. But for her famous brother-in-law, it is doubtful that this despicable excuse for a human being would be heard at all.
    Booth has written an article on the web site of Jewish anti-Semite Gilad Atzmon calling for the “end of the Jewish state”. Yaacov Lozowick, whose blood pressure must be under much better control than mine, rips her letter to shreds.

    This ought to give you some idea why any negotiations between Israel and the ‘Palestinians’ are so difficult.

    “Egypt’s Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Sunday rejected the presence of Israeli troops on Jordan’s border with a future Palestinian state, Egyptian press said.

    Abul Gheit said Egypt supported Palestinian negotiators on this issue, adding that deploying an international presence to monitor the border would only be considered as a temporary measure, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram reported.”
    *********
    Now, your assignment is to look at a map and come up with a logical explanation why Egypt should have any say in whether Israeli troops are stationed on the border between Israel (or ‘Palestine’ – if there ever is such a thing) and Jordan. No, there is no logical explanation.

    “Echoes of a Shofar” is the premiere episode in the “Eyewitness 1948” short film series produced by Toldot Yisrael and the History Channel. It is the centerpiece of an educational pilot program being developed with The iCenter and made possible through the generous support of the Jim Joseph Foundation.

    Under a British law in Palestine passed in 1930, Jews were forbidden to blow the shofar at the Kotel, pray loudly there, or bring Torah scrolls, so as not to offend the Arab population.

    Despite this restriction, for the next seventeen years, the shofar was sounded at the Kotel every Yom Kippur. Shofars were smuggled in to the Kotel where brave teenagers defiantly blew them at the conclusion of the fast. Some managed to get away – others were captured and sent to jail for up to six months.

    Six of these men are still alive.

    Two weeks ago, these six men returned to the scene of their “crime”. Armed with shofars, they recounted their individual stories and blew shofar again at the Kotel.

    This is their powerful and inspiring story.

    What was your reaction last month when you heard how well the talks had gone between Israel and the ‘Palestinians’? Did you flinch? Did you snicker? Did you doubt the reports? Whatever your reaction was, I have what should be unsurprising news for you. The talks did not go well. US Special Middle East envoy George Mitchell lied about them.

    Obama to pay a hefty price for over-hyping

    We talk a lot about enthusiasm, and how being enthusiastic can get others to listen to you where they might otherwise ignore you.

    The Obama administration came out of the Washington talks with Israel and the ‘Palestinians’ all enthusiastic about the prospects of reaching a ‘peace agreement’ between Israel and the ‘Palestinians’ within a year. Unfortunately, it seems that in diplomacy, you at least have to have a basis for enthusiasm. In this case, there is none. The Obama administration’s promotion of the ‘direct talks’ turned out to be a lot of empty hype. And now, there may be a price to be paid for that hype.

    “[Aaron David] Miller, who was involved with the Oslo talks and is an old hand at Middle East negotiations, is doubtful. He told the French news agency AFP, “They [the Obama administration] now need to pay or are considering paying both parties for simply sitting down at the table.”

    DEMONSTRATION

    Thursday, October 7 at 18:00 at the Temple of Hadrian (Tempio di Adriano), Piazza di Pietra, Rome

    WHY YOU MUST BE THERE

    Because it is necessary to put an end to the barrage of lies that are thrown on
    Israel every day;

    Because Israel is the only country that is being attacked for whatever it does:
    whether its athletes are participating in a tournament,
    whether its films competing in an international film festival,
    or whether it is defending its people from missile and terrorist attacks;

    Because at this event, politicians, intellectuals, and young people who want the
    truth about Israel will participate from all over Europe.

    ENOUGH OF THE DOUBLE STANDARD!

    80% OF THE UN RESOLUTIONS OF CONDEMNATION ARE AGAINST ISRAEL

    Why doesn’t the UN care when Iran hangs homosexuals and stones women,
    in Darfur a massacre is takes place in silence,
    and in China justice is to be shot in the head?

    So what is Gaza able to “export?”

    “We’re exporting raw materials like aluminum, copper, scrap metal, plus eggs, ducks and chickens,” said one masked worker who was packing bags for the short trip underground from Rafah to Egypt, which prohibits overt commercial trade with Gaza.
    http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE68R1SG20100928

    I think it’s great that Gaza is able to help out Egypt like this.
    Maybe as the demand from Egypt grows, Gaza will be able to organize a flotilla to help them out.

    Israel, hehehe, there is nothing called Israel…Jewish didnt fallow God’s rules that is why, there is not Israel, just opression on palestinians. You didnt respect the Pact of God.

    Is sad what jewish do in order to exist….dont you feel humiliated?

    You just live with the international crumbs….that for many years pay money because the Holocaust…..really, zionists for sure have a complex….they need psycologists….:(:(:) hihihi I Want to exist hihih, I was killed in holocaust, thas is why i kill all people now…ihihih

    Go treat your minds…sick people

  34. Scott Thong Says:

    Oppression like this?

    Horrific Israelis forcing Palestinians to be human shields

    Or this?

    You know one pact of God the Jews aren’t following? The command to wipe out the inhabitants of Canaan and not make treaties with their neighbors. True enough, by withdrawing after every overwhelming military victory, all Israel gets in return is unrepentant and resurgent enemies on their borders. And by trying to be restrained instead of massacring the Palestinian terrorists (the way the terrorists massacre civilians), all Israel gets is emboldened terrorists – and accusations in the UN anyway!
