  Ghussain: Resistance tunnels legitimate means of self-defense

October 23, 2013
*http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2013/10/23/ghussain-resistance-tunnels-legitimate-means-of-self-defense/*

GAZA, (PIC)-- Ihab Al-Ghussain, the spokesman for the Gaza government, 
said that digging resistance tunnels was an internal affair and a 
legitimate method for self-defense.

He said on his Facebook page on Wednesday that the Palestinian people 
and its resistance factions are entitled to take whatever means possible 
to defend the Gaza population in face of the repeated Israeli attacks 
and crimes that are committed amidst international silence.

The spokesman said that it was illogical to deprive the Palestinians 
from pondering and adopting all means to defend themselves at the 
backdrop of horrific Israeli military preparations.

He recalled that Gaza was constantly under attack and was invaded twice 
over the past few years at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces 
during which war crimes were committed but none of the perpetrators were 
brought to account.

Ghussain expressed surprise at the UN for considering the tunnel a 
breach of the calm agreement while it did not say a thing about the semi 
daily Israeli violations of that agreement.

He asked the UN to assume its role and order Israel to end its blockade 
of Gaza and bring Israeli warlords to trial and to defend the unarmed 
Palestinian people

      What if the "United Nations" had been witnesses in Warsaw Ghetto?

*Dec 8, 2012 by occpal*

    /"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." /
    /~/George Santayana//

When in World War II Americans reached concentration camps in Germany 
they found the prisoners, gas chambers and the deprivation in which the 
prisoners had been held, they hauled citizens of a nearby city and 
forced them to behold what had been happening just a few kilometers away 
from their own homes.

*And the Germans said:*

    /"Wir haben es nicht gewußt, Wir haben es nicht gewußt..." /
    /("We didn't know. We didn't know...")/

*But this world's powers knew.*

They didn't act as proofs reports which did reach the American 
representatives of the General Jewish Workers Union of Poland (The Bund) 
through resistance channels via London on the date of June 22, 1943 
relating about the ongoing extermination of Jewish people... and the 
'heroic' resistance in which Warsaw Ghetto resistance took a lead in 
battling the Gestapo and SS.

The first 'clashes' of Warsaw resistance took place between January 19 
until 23  of the year 1943 and was called 'a prelude of events to come'

*An excerpt from the report received by the Americans on June 22, 1943 
states:*

    /"We, as well as you, are burning with the desire for vengeance. It
    is a fight for our freedom, as well as yours; for our human dignity
    and national honour, as well as yours! We shall avenge the gory
    deeds of Oswiecim, Treblinka, Belzec and Majdanek."/

*The Resistance was heroic.*

In determination and in every way they sacrificed their time and lives, 
facing all the risks. Most of them who remained alive and traveled and 
smuggled through tunnels in the underground. To resists. Not only by 
arms but also by smuggling to prevent, those who were able to be saved 
from deprivation, by smuggling in goods, medications, small weapons and 
basic needs.

The resistance was able to leave any time. To escape any time.  But 
their 'soldier's honor, the desire to continue the fight for human 
dignity kept them going.

In Aug 1943 Nazi guards raided the camps of Treblinka, seized 
ammunition, torched the buildings, schools and caused a total black-out 
in communications, and those surviving resisted again.

The heroes of Sobibor, Poniatow and Trawniki  receiving aid of the 
Jewish armed resistance organization in dispatching  funds, ammunition 
and instructions to all remaining in the camps who fiercely kept 
resisting.  As heroes do.

*We all know what happened in the Holocaust.*

We all know, how many people have lost their lives and loved once. 
Induced by a propaganda of hatred initiated already in 1939 when 
Goebbels ordered his campaigns and movies like *Jud Süss* 
<http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/holoprelude/judsuss.html> for 
incitement to be broadcasted to over 20 million people; to be dispatched 
on the path of war -or- to the destinations to which the Jewish people 
were to be expelled in creation of the Nazi "Lebensraum".

I may remind you all of the tremendous undertaking and 'achievement' of 
such, reaching and funneling up hatred to 20 million people, lacking the 
internet as we know it today.

The hatred for an ideology of supremacy, causing tens of millions of 
death; aside from all war casualties. resistance, POW's, disabled, the 
ill and other ethnic groups that were targeted: 6 million Jewish people 
were slayed of which 1 million died due to deliberate deprivation policies.

*In April 1943 during the first days of the Battle of the Warsaw Ghetto 
the Jewish Armed Resistance Organization issued this Manifesto to the 
people of Poland:*

    /Long live the fraternity of blood and weapons in a fighting Poland./
    /Long live freedom /
    /Death to the hangmen and the killer/
    /We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the
    very end." /

         -Signed the Jewish Armed Resistance Organization

*"We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the 
very end."*

69 years later, the same world aware of the horrific cruelties during 
World War II allows Israel to re-create a new Warsaw ghetto and 
extermination camps in what is left of Palestine.

The people, occupied alike the Jewish people in camps like the Warsaw 
Ghetto, now live in Gaza Ghetto

Or in South-African style 2012 Bantustans. Fragmented... for division 
weakens the resistance. It breaks up families. It hinders normal life in 
every aspect and essence of dignity, violating every single fundamental 
right.

Gaza, the largest open air prison in this world, inhabiting 1.7 million 
people -- under the eye of this world -- silent as it was back in 1939 
-- allowing to be submitted to an ongoing onslaught.

While women hid their children in ghetto's in human waste holes, Israel 
casts internationally banned weaponry on dense populated area's. Even 
during the latest assault in November 2012 Israel pounded Gaza with 
*Uranium, tungsten, aluminum and nickel* <http://wp.me/p16sn9-u3Z>.

These heavy metals raise the temperature in the center of the explosion 
to 7 thousand degrees Celsius, and boost the destructive ability of the 
shell that is launched. Which hole with waste water do you think make 
one survive such heat or destructing powers?

*There is no place to hide in Gaza.*

For not only lethal during the assaults, these weapons kills afterwards 
as well. By birth-defects. Or cancer. So when the warmongering state of 
Israel does not succeed in pinpoint a 'target' the destructive nature of 
banned weaponry will cause sickness and death of others as well.

For if you can not kill, than make them ill -  If they survive, than 
deprive. Under the eye of the world.

After *75 tons* 
<http://nuclear-news.net/2010/07/19/75-tons-of-depleted-uranium-in-gaza-following-israeli-attacks/> 
of depleted uranium already were casted on Gaza during the Cast Lead War 
and it's remnants were found in the Gaza environment, it is more than 
baffling that this world allows Israel's ongoing quest for destruction 
and pollution.

Your  newspaper did not cover the events. You might have missed as well, 
Israel already endangered millions by it's digital warfare on Iranian 
nuclear plants by planting a stux-net virus.  But in the rush and 
routine of the daily life this as well might have passed by your awareness.

Did you forget by the disasters of  Chernobyl and Fukushima?  Although 
these were "accidents" which were not caused deliberately; like Israel 
deploys man-imposed devastation with to annihilate other human beings 
locked up in a camp sealed of by air, sea and land.

*With no place to go.
Neither for you.*

*Eventually nuclear waste does not discriminate your children.*
*It does neither recognize your border nor "democracy"*

Nevertheless,  if such does inflict people in Gaza, with cancer or 
illness, or birth-defects you would have a slight advantage of not being 
under siege. Able  to travel to a hospital for treatment.  A fundamental 
right and even an obligation under the Fourth Geneva Convention Art 55 
and 56 which obliges an occupier to assure the entry or access to 
medical care.

*Reminding,  that this same Fourth Geneva convention was adopted in 1949 
by the International community in response to Nazi atrocities during 
World War II.*

The very reasons with which this story started.

The Fourth Geneva convention to which Israel is a signee too.  Not 
living up to the moral nor legal standards other than violating every 
single one of them under the false claim of security with no desire for 
*peace* <http://sfy.co/U5Q> whatsoever. Where does that leave your 
feelings when you think about millions of Palestinians living for 65 
years in an ongoing genocide, violent- or indirect, by proxy?

*Under the eye of the world.*

A statement like "Wir haben es nicht gewußt..." is a no go in 2012.

Israel is fighting a war against truth, invests disproportional amounts 
of funds in arms and *propaganda* <http://wp.me/p16sn9-bBV>, to 
manipulate the press and world's powers.

That could have been an excuse in 1943 but not on this day on which any 
individual has the resources and means to educate him or herself about 
facts.

*Not Palestinians, but Facts are Israel's largest enemy.*

So you will not know what is really going on. So you will not know what 
*complicit governments* 
<http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/palestinians-have-to-be-more-flexible-hillary-says/>, 
a lobby and those obeying are hiding for you.
So you won't notice: Israel became exactly that what it feared and hated 
once itself.

Cumulation of factors caused (as is known by the UN since 2006) *95%* 
<http://wp.me/p16sn9-1rg> of Gaza's water became  unfit for human 
consumption and in the West Bank 85% of water resources are under 
Israeli control which have already moved world's UN  to calculate it 
will be 'unlivable' by *2020* <http://t.co/Wk3F0rex>. (Or earlier due to 
the current increasing crimes and violence by the Israeli  modus operandi)

Israel imposes (like the Nazis imposed on Jewish ghettos) deliberate 
policies of deprivation. Not so very long ago the report Red Lines was 
published. For the complicit media were hiding these reports already 
since late *2010* 
<http://www.medialens.org/alerts/10/101117_put_the_palestinians.php> 
when Israel tried to turn itself to High court to prevent exposure of 
the policies and documents.

Like the Nazis blacked out Treblinka in 1943, under the eyes of the 
world, Israel blackout's Gaza every single day. By preventing entry of 
fuel for power-plants, spare parts for it's repairs sustaining 
acquafiers, life sustaining equipment, hence even surgery rooms and 
every single one of the 1.7 million Palestinians in Gaza has a blackout 
every day.

*For years now.  Under the eye of the world.*

A world that  funds dearly for 65 years and ongoing the established 
'occupation', transgressing not only every moral but every very essence 
of refugee-law and mission statements to end such statuses. 1 in 3 
refugees world wide are Palestinian.

A world, acting, not to ease the decaying status quo, but complicit in* 
sustaining* <http://t.co/rSqV0ks>it.

One can not state "We did not know" while tax money and government of 
Party States to the UN are bringing in the sacks and tents for 65 years 
in the knowledge 2/3 of Gaza's needs are smuggled in the 'ghetto' by 
tunnels. The same tunnels which prevented excess death in Warsaw Ghetto.

No!  This world nods and turns away as even those lifelines in the 
underground are  being bombed.

And again, your newspaper does not cover the story of the heroic people 
fighting the deprivation, to prevent malnutrition, illness and 
eventually death itself.

For the 'heroes' only existed in Warsaw. Not in Gaza. The zionist 
corporation wants you to count the *rockets* <http://sfy.co/Tno>. Not 
the facts. And certainly not the dead (children) of Palestine.

*Launching every attempt of Palestine's resistance into main stream 
media, which de facto is the largest weapon of mass destruction seen in 
human history:  To keep you ignorant of facts. Distant from reality. Mum 
for the truth, which can easily be brought under the eyes of the world.*

*So you will not witness  Israel' has chosen a new target:  The media.* 
<http://wp.me/p16sn9-tE3>

Targeting the very people able to convey this truth and open your eyes. 
In the latest assault on Gaza, 3 were killed and 1 was amputated.  Their 
buildings destroyed in targeted attacks.

*Not only under the eyes of the world. It's on the cameras. It might 
although have not been on your tv-set.*

While their colleagues in white chairs all-over the world -- in fear of 
their paycheck and own social security- swiftly scroll over the coverage 
and footage of their to charcoal reduced colleagues in the war-zone.

And cover nothing or a bit. Maybe the regular copy and paste of the 
Israeli press freed which relentlessly throws up the alleged initial 
assaults which never came from Gaza in the first place.

Solely, in the first 3 months of 2012 Israel committed *over 1000* 
<http://wp.me/P16sn9-hlV> attacks on Palestinians including the West 
Bank which has no weapon arsenal whatsoever.

Yet all is done to assure these attacks do not reach your eyes or ears 
and while this world brags about a death sentence in an electric 
American chair, or a stoning in some Arab country, you might have missed 
that Israel extrajudicial executed over 1000 people in the last 5 years 
only.

*It was no breaking news on your channel. It was though breaking up 
complete families and futures in Gaza.*

Did you too become the same, as the villagers near Warsaw or other 
Ghetto's saying after the war: "We didn't know" "We didn't know what was 
happening inside the camps"?

*But not in 2012. And not on my "watch"*

The ethnic cleansing of the people of Palestine started in 1948 with the 
Palestinian KristallNacht, the Nakba expulsions and over 77 *massacres* 
<http://is.gd/GGiCR1> and violence initiated not by Palestinians but 
opposite to common beliefs ignited by zionist terrorist gangs in *1946* 
<http://t.co/QqcHVkrB> with the bombing of the King David Hotel causing 
61 innocent people to die. Before, again, before any state of  'Israel' 
was established.

While the ruling powers of this world are aware of the mouths they feed 
and the count of sacks they bring in to feed those exiled, producing 
reports for decades, no efforts are made whatsoever to end this 
suffering and ongoing onslaught.

Reminding again, that not only bullets and bombs kill, the largest 
body-count is the silenced one which is never mentioned not even in 
reports of the NGO's:

*Avoidable Mortality...* 
<http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/apartheid-israel-over-60-years-of-racism-war-theft-palestinian-genocide/>

What do you think, if the UN had been able to behold the event in Warsaw 
or Majdanek? Took a peek in Treblinka or Auschwitz these crimes on 
humanity ever would have been committed?

And why do you allow, in 2012, this same UN and it's members to commit 
or sustain, or so silently allow similar practices on human beings, 
while your advantage is information which was successfully withheld by 
Nazis in WWII. But this argument is barely valid in this age.

*The Jews is Warsaw and Majdanek, Auschwitz and not a soul died during 
WWII to become gatekeepers of a similar extermination camps.*

They did not sacrifice their lives to utter global shock igniting this 
world to create a 'thing' like Fourth Geneva Conventions to assure those 
signed living up to fundamental rights of all human beings. Yet this 
governing power has become the biggest hangman itself.

World's powers flotilla's did not sail to Normandy in WWII,  to now for 
some years become servants offering hand- and mouth-service to 
effectively bar and prevent the flotilla's with humanitarian conscience, 
aid and in the effort to get your attention.

*This world has a moral and legal obligation to assure fundamental human 
rights to all human life. Unregarded if one party is a state -- or none 
at all.*

Humanity has only one race. The human race which is founded on the 
deaths of our ancestors fighting for a future, a better one. Like the 
Jews and Resistance in WWII, nowadays, Palestine's resistance exercises 
it's *fundamental right* <http://wp.me/p16sn9-tNY> of self-defense 
against those who were once oppressed and became oppressors *themselves* 
<http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2010/12/26/hashoah-vs-al-nakba/>.

Denying to do, what they once did, described even up til today as 
heroic:  to Resists.
Resistance which, in a violent occupation is a fundamental right.

*Or did you forget the manifest of Warsaw? I will repeat it once again:*

    /Long live the fraternity of blood and weapons in a fighting Poland./
    /Long live freedom /
    /Death to the hangmen and the killer/
    /We must continue our mutual struggle against the occupant until the
    very end." /
         -Signed the Jewish Armed Resistance Organisation

*Nothing has changed since 1943.*

Neither for the Palestinian people who never were and still are not 
longing for death.
Not for their own people nor for it's oppressor. It only wants freedom 
and live in a human way.

*But it is time for a change, and it is time for a new manifesto:*

    /Long live the fraternity of the humanitarians and righteous that
    fight for justice in this world./
    /Long Live Freedom for all/
    /No more oppressions and occupations of no matter which races/
    /We must continue this global struggle against the transgressors
    until the very end/
    - Signed One of the Freedom Fighters of the Online Resistance for
    Palestine

//
The United Nations did not "observe" in Warsaw.
There was no 'social media' breaking the silence.

But the United Nations do "observe" in Palestine.
For almost 7 decades now.
And there is a 'social media' shouting from the inside out breaking the 
trends and passing by the mainstream.

You only need to *open your eyes* 
<http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/must-see-video-chris-hedges-assault-on-gaza-is-murder-not-war/>.

Now is the time, you question the mission statements and mandates of 
nations, united or not, as well as those of your governments as Party 
Members why they are allowing the crimes imposed on 12 million people to 
go on, violating their own statutes and remain without any action or 
sanction.

In hope, all people with a conscience regardless of which faith or none, 
will join in  humanity and co-resist to achieve an end to impunity 
imposed on Palestine for once and for all and be part of this liberation 
movement.

*It's under your eyes now.*

    And it's your choice to decide, if you want to go in to history as
    one who said "We didn't know" or to be remembered as one of the
    'heroes' that resisted.../
