Would she have been a doctor?

A mother?

An artist?

A musician?

A good citizen?

Would she laugh with a brother or sister?

What was she thinking as she died?

Did she hate Israel?

Was terror her goal?

She will never see another sunrise. She will never be hungry.

Or afraid.

Or happy.

She will never smile again when she sees her mommy.

She will never see, know, or do anything again.

Do you see her?

How does she make you feel?

Powerful?

Justified?

Angry?

Sorry?

Anything at all?

i'm ashamed to belong to such a species...

i often think what Bush would have to fear if justice would exist - reminds me of the ancient greek myths - Bush would have to live for at least 1,000 years...

Dahr Jamail fills in the blanks on Israel's notoriously NON-precision devastation of Lebanon: Fleeing Lebanese Speak of Indiscriminate Bombing [IPS] ==== People fleeing the bombing of Lebanon say the Israelis are targeting civilian neighbourhoods and vital infrastructure, and not just Hezbollah centres. ==== The bombing has killed more than 100 Lebanese civilians so far. ==== Several border points between Syria and Lebanon are being deluged with refugees. ... The refugees include both Lebanese and tourists. ==== "Everything is being bombed," a teacher from the United States who was on vacation in Beirut told IPS. "It's terror. We've literally been terrorised." ...

Cool. I've been banned by FireDogLake, which has no stated forum rules or guidelines that I could find. I'll take that as a badge of honor. Silence is complicity.

;-)

Here's the offending post, censored 5 times, without comment. Feel free to repost it there and elsewhere as you see fit. It should be post 176 at:
http://www.firedoglake.com/2006/07/17/here-we-go-again-2/#comments
should "moderators" allow a little insight into the crisis.

What you can't say at FireDogLake:
========================

I think it's an incredible disservice to history to be censoring people for speaking out on this crisis. It's akin to burning copies of White Rose leaflets to stamp out dissent, leaving little evidence that individual citizens advocated fervently against such wars. Isn't such behavior what we criticize the neocons for?

That said, here is some very detailed, balanced news not approved by mainstream media, and the hidden debate on the crisis:

What I am watching in Lebanon each day is an outrage by Robert Fisk in Lebanon.

I'll be taking a break for a few days. Getting banned by FDL made my day. Please pass on the following message to our left gatekeepers, enforcers of the chosen bullshit:

So now the G8 are talking about sending forces into Lebanon to stop guerillas from firing rockets into Israel.

When are they going to send forces into Israel?

I'm not saying sending troops to Lebanon is a bad idea, but it only makes sense if they are going to protect Lebanon from Israel at the same time.

Sweet. I've been banned from 3 different websites today, and almost kicked off a 4th. Silly fiefdoms that they are, yet I am so flattered!

So now, I hoist my tankard and toast you all good wishes, and will finally take that a break. I leave you this back door to uncensored news from Lebanon:

Cease Fire, Soldier - Israel Supernaturally Protected!

That's right: the solution to the current crisis has been found, right in our very own Bible. The Rapture Ready Team is with us to interpret the relevant passages of G*D's LOVE for us. Bless them.

You will learn of Israel's SECRET WEAPON: Israel is supernaturally protected! His heavenly all-powerful mightyness who, through his son on Earth, George W. Bush, has a plan to save us all. Israel can disarm, scrap its nukes, dismantle Dimona, destroy its chemical weapons, free its prisoners, and befriend former foes. Why? Because Israel is supernaturally protected!

We continue now with G*D's peace plan, as interpreted by the Rapture Ready (TM) Team, why peace is upon us, Israel can ceasefire, and both sides can disarm for good. The actual, uncensored virtual roundtable dialogue follows. Listen carefully to G*D's LOVE:

===
I dont know where I have come up with this but for some reason I keep thinking Israel is supposed to be supernaturally protected from being destroyed. Any scriptures or comments please. It may be just because of the Left Behind 2nd movie who knows. Surely Israel isnt going to be destroyed with WMD, chemical or biological right?
===
"um, no"
===
1, Try Ezekiel 38 - 39.

2, NO, of course not. Where would Jesus go to set up the Millenium Kingdom?
===
[clapping while she types] GOD's chosen ppl, his land that he gave them, I hink not. Big daddy will take care of anyone who makes war against them if it's not in his plan..
===
No, isn't there a verse in the Bible that says that either 1/3 or 2/3 of Jerusalem will be destroyed during the Tribulation?
===
They will suffer through the tribulation Jerusalem especially. Here is the verse.
The city shall be attacked, it won't be good.

Zech. 13:7-14:3 (KJV)
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. [8] And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. [9] And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.
[14:1] Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. [2] For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. [3] Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
===
What is your question? That the land won't be destroyed, the buildings, Israel as a nation, are that the people won't never suffer harm. I think that Israel won't be destroyed as a nation. that was part of his promise to bring them back. I do not think this promise includes divine protection on the whole pop.
===
Right happy day, they will never cease to be a nation again and they will be protected by God. On the other hand, they will suffer judgement, the entire tribulation is for Israel, to bring them back to God.
===
They will also not come out of these wars unscathed. They will be seriously hurt, but not to death.
===
I think they could get hit with a WMD that would cause them to destroy Demascus, but this would not destroy Israel but may cause a great deal of casualities. I do think in the future wars with Russia and Iran, God will supernaturally protect Israel, I say this because as I watch, I think what if those missiles that are hitting were nukes or bio weapons.
===
we know that they were supernaturaly protected during the 6 day war...angels..and when they were bombed the gas lines or something like that had been drained...for repair....that was big...sooo but God still has to get their attention....that is what it is all about....and that is what i keep praying for..
===


And there you have it folks. Peace on Earth. Thanks, G*D!

And just think! All this carnage and mayhem is a direct result of US 'generosity' --"YOUR Tax Dollars at Work"!: Israel Violates Law on U.S. Weapons in Mideast [IPS] ==== Israel is in violation of U.S. arms control laws for deploying U.S.-made fighter planes, combat helicopters and missiles to kill civilians and destroy Lebanon's infrastructure in the ongoing six-day devastation of that militarily-weak country. ==== The death toll, according to published reports, is over 200 people -- mostly civilians -- while the economic losses have been estimated at about 100 million dollars per day. ==== "Section 4 of the (U.S.) Arms Export Control Act requires that military items transferred to foreign governments by the United States be used solely for internal security and legitimate self-defence," says Stephen Zunes, professor of politics at the University of San Francisco. ==== "Since Israeli attacks against Lebanon's civilian infrastructure and population centres clearly go beyond legitimate self-defence, the United States is legally obliged to suspend arms transfers to Israel," Zunes told IPS. ... ==== "The Israeli Air Force now flies only U.S.-origin fighters, a mix of F-15s and F-16s, and the rest of the service's fleet is almost completely of U.S. origin," says Tom Baranauskas, a senior Middle East analyst at Forecast International, a leading provider of defence market intelligence services in the United States. ... ==== He said the latest CRS survey shows a total of 8.4 billion dollars of arms deliveries to Israel in the 1997-2004 period, with fully 7.1 billion dollars or 84.5 percent coming from a single source: the United States. ==== A major factor in this trend was the rise in U.S. Foreign Military Financing (FMF) -- outright U.S. grants to Israel -- which now totals about 2.3 billion dollars a year paid for by U.S. taxpayers. ... ==== From a historical perspective, he said, U.S. assistance to Israel during 1950-2005 has been staggeringly high: Foreign Military Financing (FMF) amounting to 59.5 billion dollars; 27 billion dollars in Foreign Military Sales (FMS) mostly government-to-government arms transactions; and eight billion dollars in commercial arms sales by the private sector. ...

FDL is a bit more measured today, with a great post by Steve Gilliard, and at least they're still covering the crisis. Feel free to post them a link to any commentary by Norman Finkeltein.

Hezbollah is based next to Israel's border, and for the last 6 years, trained and build themselves only for one reason: attack and destroy Israel. Hezbollah permits the Lebanon nation from having a normal life.

Stop blaming everything on Israel. Israel withdrew from Lebanon 6 years ago, and withdrew last year from Gaza.

But the Palestinians don't want peace. They have been detonating "kasam" bombs on Israeli cities ever since.

Hezbollah has forced Israel into this situation. NO normal nation in the world will allow terror org to build themselves and to kidnap soldiers that are patrolling the border.

Lebanon for the last 6 years has been allowing Hezbollah to control south Lebanon, and the Lebanon army is crippled, without any power. Destroying Hezbollah is mandatory for the entire region. (Even some brave Arabic journalistic think so: http://www.defenddemocracy.org/research_topics/research_topics_show.htm?doc_id=289611)

!!!!
And may the good guys win… !!!
And we will.
