Israelis use “unprecedented type of projectiles” on Palestinians

The world stands idle as Israelis test their destructive weapons on Palestinians.
According to a press release issued Tuesday, 11 July, by the Gaza-based Palestinian Health Information Center (PHIC), surgeons have noticed that the majority of wounded civilians admitted to hospitals were exposed to tremendous explosions that burned their limbs and other body organs, causing multiple wounds, lacerated abdomen and internal bleedings.

“When the projectile explodes it morphs into very tiny pieces like sand and enters wounded bodies from multiple inlets and goes out from larger exit causing tissue destruction,” one surgeon was quoted as saying.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health appealed to the international community and human rights organizations to send a specialized medical committee to investigate the use by the Israeli army of these weapons.

During the course of the Aqsa Intifada, which started in September 2000, the Israeli occupation army used a variety of internationally prohibited weapons, including shells containing depleted uranium, dart shells, which contain thousands of nail-like darts that penetrate the body, as well as gas agents affecting the nervous system.

The Israeli occupation army has refused to comment on the type of weapons it uses against Palestinians in Gaza.

Eternal shame on a world that exalts one group of people above another.

Just depressing. I saw a cartoon the other day that depicted the US mainstream media's definition of fair and balanced. On one side, there were thousands of Palestinians killed or mamed. On the other side there was a rendition of the kidnapped soldier, which was where the scale of importance was tipped to. I hope they find him and he gets home to his family and friends safely. But mass-murdering entire sections of Palestinian communities isn't the way to go about it.

This video is a clip from the Arundhati Roy documentary, "We". She talks about the history of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. I think it's been very effective in helping people understand what's going on over there and some of the root causes of it.

The clip is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vnaf8R_SJo

The entire documentary can be downloaded at: weroy.org

Anyway, keep helping to expose the truth with these types of blog posts. It's really appreciated.
