Olmert orders army to ‘use all force – spare no one’
The Israeli prime minister has given his army the order to use all its force to rescue the soldier captured by Palestinian militants last week.Sounds crystal clear to me. They intend to commit genocide.
Meeting with his cabinet, Ehud Olmert said that no one would be spared, adding that the Israeli government had no intention of giving in to blackmail.
Just what this means for the 1.4 million people who live in Gaza is unclear.
Israeli tanks have massed at both ends of the Strip, despite pleas from the Red Cross for them to pull back to allow essential supplies to reach the Palestinians.The US finances and supports this cruelty. Enough is enough. Spread the word. Come November, all those spineless worms in Congress that support this agression must go.
Strikes on Gaza's main power plant last week knocked out electricity to nearly half the population. Now fuel for generators has virtually run dry and the UN emergency coordinator says if power is not restored the Palestinians are heading for the abyss.
Last night Israel struck at the heart of the Palestinian Hamas government, attacking the office of the prime minister.
Ismail Haniyeh was not there at the time, although three security guards were allegedly injured. Afterwards he appealed to the international community and the Arab League to intervene and bring an end to the aggression.
While expressing hope that an agreement could still be reached on releasing the soldier, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said life in Gaza was becoming intolerable.
"Our people are living in harsh conditions under the shelling and the airstrikes and the bombs," he said. "But what is to come may be more difficult."
