No condolences to apartheid Israel….yes, it has killed 1,300 Palestinians in Gaza because its fears are of a demographic nature, its army never cared what age or gender it killed, Israel’s machine was harvesting Palestinians of all ages and sizes…young and old, disabled and healthy, pregnant women and young girls, the ones resisting the occupation and the ones who are still too young to understand such expressions….. Israel’s nightmare is of a demographic scale, it is frightened to be outnumbered…so the answer was to starve people to death, stop them from receiving medication so that they would die of ‘natural causes’ then bar the media from investigating that and then knit a freshly made lie to suit its new tailored fib. Israel’s actions mean there was a terrorist in every cradle, there were tunnels turning bread to arms. 

During the time Israel was feeling victorious and happy counting 1,300 massacred Palestinians in cold blood, Palestinian women retaliated by giving birth to 3,570 babies. The Palestinian woman is considered a demographic bomb, a highly fertile creature as fertile as the soil of Palestine. The more Israel sends Palestinian on a one way trip to the womb of the land, the more Palestinian women’s wombs show generosity, giving birth to more heroes.  

At a time the average fertility in Israel is 2.6 babies per woman, Gaza is considered one of the most fertile in the whole wide world with an average of 6 babies per woman. Israel suffers a high percentage of senior citizens while Gaza has an abundance of youngsters and according to UNICEF’s report on the 3rd of March 2009 the total number of children in Gaza is approximately 793,520, or 56 per cent of the population (PCBS). This was one of the main reasons that forced Israel to stop its military incursions, for there are 4,170 humans per every square Kilometre in Gaza, to imagine how densely populated Gaza is, one should know that Lebanon is 29 times the area of Gaza. 

This brings us back to Israel’s devious methods of trying to kill women who are considered as factories of men, without being blamed directly for that by its policies of blockades, and checkpoints where sick women or women about to give birth suffer for not being able to reach hospitals, by denying them the right to travel or import foods and medicines, by bombing their infrastructure leaving them with no water to drink or use for hygiene, by depriving them of fuel leading to total arrest of the sewage system refineries, by spraying them with chemicals from above and burning them with white phosphorus, and by killing them indirectly out of sorrow and deep grief after losing their family members especially their young ones, but as Yasser Arafat once said we Palestinians are an undefeatable nation we are ‘Shaab Aljabbareen’.áfica-de-israel– IN SPANISH

    Shame on the Israeli warmongers and their US backers. I am not a Palestinian but I am human. I felt pain when I saw the televised murders of 1300 innocent Palestinians. I am glad to hear that the brave women of Palestine continue to give birth to fresh, brave generations of Palestine. I salute all the brave Palestinians who continue to revolt even though the enemy is formidable and well equipped. I salute you, from the smallest stone-throwing boy, to the old, who pass the Palestinian story onto the young ears.

    The numbers game was never on, jews were never a majority in Palestine. Palestine was always one entity. Even after 48, had the refugees were aloud to return as U.N. 191 demands. After W.W.2 the “north” was happy to dump it’s jewish “problem” on Palestine, creating an artificial majority, and the Palestinian tragedy.
    Zionism always meant apartheid as far as the palestinians were concerned, in 1920 led by Ben Gurion the zionist established a trade union, they could it ” THE CONGRESS OF HEBREW WORKERS IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL”

  6. I always admire Ms. Tamimi’s well written and well research articles. I do agree with her that the demographic in Gaza and among Palestinians is an Israeli and Jewish nightmare. We need to keep in mind that the late Yasser Arafat gambled and counted on the demographic battle with Israel and sorry to say, we lost. Based on culture and value system of Israel and the West, “transfer: of people is an accepted solution to demographic problems and issues and is part of political solutions. This was the case in the US when in the late 18th century; the government transferred in mass the “Cheyenne” nation from Oklahoma to North Dakota in the middle of winter with tens of thousands dying along the way. In Czarist Russia, transfer of Jews from one location to another was an accepted thing. Israel is following this model and it offsetting the Palestinian “demographic challenge” by inventing” Jews around the world. In one year, it transferred one million Russians of “dubious” Jewish background, enough Jews o offset 15 years of ‘demographics” birth among Palestinians. With the power Israel has, it is able to “transfer” Palestinians as it chooses as it did in 47 and 48, and is doing now in Jerusalem and creating settlements all over the West bank. What is important to Israel is the land, which is “non-transferable” while people can be relocated at will with use of force if necessary. Israel is using the “demographic challenge” as an instrument of fear, nothing more nothing less, knowing well, power can offset the demographic at will. Not so sure how many Palestinians did Israel kill in 60 years, for sure couple of hundred thousands. Give me the land, and let Israel have the demographic challenge. I think it is wrong for us to put all of our eggs in the “demographic” basket. One cluster bomb can wipe out 30 children in no time.

  7. anegyptian says:

    It is really disgusting, it is few men who are ruling the world, not the people. Few men ( Zionist Bandits ) have decided to occupy the land of a People who lived in Palestine.
    They killed they murdered, they robbed, they massacred they destroyed, they put fire everywhere.
    The other men who inhabit the west, did not care, they let the Zionist bandit do what they wanted.
    Now those other men who inhabit the west want to prosecute a man who is a president that lives in Sudan because he killed and murdered some other Sudanese.
    If he really did the people of the world have no objection of persecuting him, but the western men should persecute the Zionist bandit before so that the people accept.

  8. ilham says:

    palestine is the chosen land and palestinian are the chosen people.
    they are the syuhadas,born as warriors of their land
    just like the palestinian men,palestinian women are also a tough warrior
    they become a mother of the syuhadas.

    and israel will never ever stop the palestinian.
    until the ressurection day/judgement day the palestinian warriors will always protects and fights for their homeland

  9. Hussein says:

    what about muslim terrorists exploding among innocent civilians and killing thousands of innocent people in the name of Alah. the cause of world violence is islam, you can see clearly where there muslim there is violence. the mulism do not understand the language of peace. The musims do not know how to make a peaceful demonstration in public. You see in europe or in other countries, when there is public protest or demonstration by muslims it end up in terrible violence. You do not see any other people of diffrent faith making any suicide attack or terrorist attack among civilian.

    Killing and violence is a pleasure of mulims, that is what islam teaches, kill the infidel ( people of other faith) you go to heaven and get seven virgins.

    if am wrong you prove me. show me the way of your living. islam is a religion of violence is proved muslims. saying the truth is not lack of respect.

  10. Robert Kirsch says:

    King Solomon wrote of the Three Oaths, in the jewish holy book; Three Oaths
    that forbid the artificial and premature creation of the holy land, perhaps for
    he say into the future. Israel is a nation of people, not a geographic location.
    They could have picked anywhere, but they picked a hotly contested location
    for over one thousand or more years. And; they have broken the Oaths, which
    means well,,,this is not a good thing according to King Solomon, as it will
    greatly offend G*D. There are many jewish people who know that this
    nationalism is forbidden and it is a kind of sickness. It is ridiculous; killing
    little children, only so that they might have a small piece of land with
    historic or religious significance, and it is greatly offensive to all
    people of conscience, “all g#d’s children must be protected from
    military institutions and war machines, all children…”

  11. Henry Nold says:

    Your philosophy of “us” vs. “them” is wrong, as much as “Zionism” is. It is as much a racist, nationalist, “pagan” (“our religion is the best”) worldview as “theirs”. Not all of your children will become “heroes” (aka killers?) – after a Third/Fourth World War – all of mankind will be fed up with the old paganism of “an eye for an eye”. Your kids will have a more peaceful mindset – as a young German generation compared to 70 years ago. Please study the Danish author and philosopher Martinus (1890-1981), also American Walter Russell (1871-1963). You could start with becoming a vegetarian.

    Re: Hussein
    First of all why did you choose to call yourself Hussein Mr Abuse?…your file of abusing the net is quite clear, do not think you are dealing with armatures. The old Zionist approach of causing lots of noise is not working any more, but for the sake of calming your racing pulse down just in case you have high blood pressure I will answer your so called questions:

    (what about muslim terrorists exploding among innocent civilians and killing thousands of innocent people in the name of Alah)
    What about them and what Muslims you are talking about? It seems you do not read much or you read and know everything but you think other readers of the post do not and this is an insult to all of them.
    First of all suicide attacks is not an Islamic invention. The earliest reference to a suicide attack is the story of Samson who died together with his victims as he collapsed a Philistine temple:”Samson said, ‘Let me die with the Philistines!’ Down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more as he died than while he lived.” (Judges 16:30).
    In the late 17th century, Qing official Yu Yonghe recorded that injured Dutch soldiers fighting against Koxinga’s forces for control of Taiwan in 1661 would use gunpowder to blow up both themselves and their opponents rather than be taken prisoner.[1]
    During the Belgian Revolution, the Dutch Lieutenant Jan van Speijk detonated his own ship in the harbour of Antwerp to prevent being captured by the Belgians.
    During their revolts against the British in late the 1700s, 1818 and 1848 the Sinhalese conducted numerous suicide attacks against the British. The common tactic was to hide inside a hollowed Kitul Palm Caryota urens tree trunk and blow up oneself when the British troops came near.
    Another example was the Prussian soldier Karl Klinke on 18 April 1864 at the Battle of Dybbøl, when he blew a hole in a Danish fortification.
    Modern suicide bombing as a political tool can be traced back to the assassination of Czar Alexander II of Russia in 1881. Alexander fell victim to a Nihilist plot. While driving on one of the central streets of Saint Petersburg, near the Winter Palace, he was mortally wounded by the explosion of hand-made grenades and died a few hours afterwards. The Tzar was killed by the Pole Ignacy Hryniewiecki, who died while intentionally exploding the bomb during the attack. Suicide attacks were carried out by Japanese kamikaze pilots of World War II, but since the 1980s, the number of attacks has grown significantly, with the attacker transporting explosives to a specific target in a vehicle or strapped to his or her body.
    Sure you know the Lehi who claim to be “Fighters for the Freedom of Israel”, known also as the Stern Gang, an armed underground Zionist faction in Mandatory Palestine, whose goal was to forcibly evict the British authorities from Palestine, allowing unrestricted immigration of Jews and the formation of a Jewish state. Initially called the National Military Organization in Israel, the name of the group was later changed to Lehi.
    Lehi was described as a terrorist organization by the British authorities and United Nations mediator Ralph Bunche. Lehi carried out the Nov 1944 assassination in Cairo of Lord Moyne along with other attacks on the British authorities and Palestinian Arabs. The newly-formed Israeli government banned the organization under an anti-terrorism law passed three days after the Sept 1948 assassination of the UN mediator Folke Bernadotte.
    Israel granted a general amnesty to Lehi members on 14 February 1949 and in 1980 the group was honored by the institution of the Lehi ribbon, a military decoration the organization’s former members are entitled to wear.
    As a group that never had over a few hundred members, Lehi relied on audacious but small-scale operations conducting small-scale operations such as assassinations of British soldiers and police officers and Jewish “collaborators”. Another strategy, (1947) was to send bombs in the mail to many British politicians. Other actions included sabotaging infrastructure targets: bridges, railroads, and oil refineries. Lehi financed their operations from private donations, extortion, and bank robbery.
    Lehi was one of groups involved in massacres of Arabs according to Israeli historian Benny Morris, see List of massacres committed during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.
    On 6 November 1944 Lehi assassinated Lord Moyne in Cairo. Moyne was the highest ranking British government representative in the region. Yitzhak Shamir claimed later that Moyne was assassinated because of his support for a Middle Eastern Arab Federation. The assassination rocked the British government, and outraged Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister. The two assassins, Eliahu Bet-Zouri and Eliahu Hakim were captured and used their trial as a platform to make public their political philosophy. They were executed. In 1975 their bodies were returned to Israel and given a state funeral. In 1982, postage stamps were issued for 20 Olei Hagardom, including Bet-Zouri and Hakim, in a souvenir sheet called “Martyrs of the struggle for Israel’s independence”.
    January 12, 1947, Lehi members drove a truckload of explosives into a British police station in Haifa killing four and injuring 140.
    During the lead-up to the 1948 Arab-Israeli war the Cairo-Haifa train was mined several times. On February 29, 1948, Lehi mined the train north of Rehovot, killing 28 soldiers and wounding 35. On March 31, the train was mined near Binyamina killing 40 civilians and wounding 60. The second attack was also attributed to Lehi.
    Also Deir Yassin massacre is an Israeli creation, Deir Yassin is a village located 5 kilometres west of Jerusalem. On 9 April 1948, independently of the Nachshon operation but with the agreement of the Haganah, about 120 members of Lehi and Irgun attacked the village. They massacred between 100 and 120 inhabitants of the village.
    This massacre led to indignation from the international community, the more so since the press of the time reported that the death toll was 254.
    Islam has nothing to do with all that Zionists are the creators of violence; Muslims are not good at the dirty ways the Zionists follow in blackmailing and tricking VIPs so that they can do what they want them to as Western governments personalities and decision makers.

    You made me laugh really, you are lashing here that you do not know what to say to obscure people’s vision. Isn’t Zionists who say that they are chosen by God and they give themselves the right to rise above all regardless… Jewish Religion sees Arabs as subhuman. What all you have said has to do with killing and burning 1300 people in Gaza most of them are women and children? Don’t you feel ashamed of yourself? Instead of saying a word of condolences for all this loss of life of totally innocent people you are trying to find anything to divert people’s attention from the atrocities done by the Israelis? You failed badly HUSSAIN…or whoever you are because people now can see with their own eyes how ugly the Zionists are.
    If you are really interested to know the truth, go and do some reading and do not swallow the information from the spoon of one source of the media, talk to Jewish peace activists they will tell you what you are trying to deny.

    RE: Henry Nold

    I never had a philosophy of “us” vs. “them” please read again, we lived next to each others for years and years in peace before the creation of the apartheid state, I have Jewish friends who are really some of the best, and please watch out what you say when you accuse me of racism… I am not a racist, Israel is the only racist state built totally on discrimination against other faiths, it is the only state in the world that stamps people’s passports as a ‘ Jew and non Jew’.
    Yes, All our children WILL become “heroes” because of what they endured of miscarriage of international justice and not because you deem them to become (killers?) Before asking me to study other author’s philosophies go and read with open heart and mind about Israel’s policies of mass cleansing in Palestine and read books written by Jewish people who rose above everything and told the truth.
    Have you ever asked yourself why Israel is refusing to declare its borders up till this moment and why it is still expanding on stolen land even though according to its own law this is forbidden? Why Israel has the right to be armed with atomic bombs while its Palestinian neighbours are not supposed to defend themselves even with a stone. If Israel really did all that destruction and killing of youngsters by mistake as they claimed, why they don’t rebuild the civilian’s homes and compensate and treat the children who became disabled forever, and give a helping hand to who became orphans. You know pretty well the truth.

  14. Mary Rizzo says:

    Sami, your insight was fabulous, thanks for that!
    Iqbal my dear, I always debate with myself: “allow this zionist drivel or not”…but at times it’s the best way to illustrate how their minds work,,, and see that they are taking what we say seriously.

    Like Remi Kanazi’s poem said, Our Blessings will grow and multiply.

    This can be taken in any way, but given the ease that Israel has in “inventing israelis” and “destroying Palestinians”, the only thing left is to cherish the fact that Palestinians are not giving up on life, and they remain and grow. You can “convert” to being a Jew, but you are born a Palestinian, and that is the one blessing in life I would have wanted to have, to be part of this great people who occupy so much space in my mind and heart.

  15. traducteur says:

    The Zionists have been killing Palestinians for over sixty years, and there are more Palestinians now than ever. This is little consolation to the many families that have lost loved ones, but it does show that there is hope. May the Palestinian people continue to be fruitful and multiply!

  16. Dear Ms. Tamimi. Salam. I am one of the few who never subscribed to the idea of ‘demographic” war of attrition, not from the Palestinian side who forecast we will win the war, and not from the Israeli side since I believe Israel and the Jews use it to scare themselves and put the world on notice that the Palestinians population time bomb is real. To this point Israel announced few days that it will “import” some 900,000 additional “Russian Jews” who for sure of dubious Jewish origin, but never the less, ready to carry the gun, fight and kill as members of the IDF. Simple calculation, it will take some 125,000 Palestinian women at least 10 years to produce that number of kids. No need to go into the issue of the high mortality rate of Palestinian children, or the survival rate of those born under occupation, not the costs of raising these 900,000 children or educating them etc. Israel with a stroke of a pen and a generous contribution from the US can offset the hard work and labor of 125,000 Palestinian women. This is something to think about when it comes to the issue of demographic challenge. Israel is very inventive, they manufacture and produce “Jews” at the ready whenever and wherever is needed.

  17. Paul says:

    @Hussein – Dear Hussein,

    You contest:”if am wrong you prove me. show me the way of your living. islam is a religion of violence is proved muslims. saying the truth is not lack of respect.”

    I appreciate your boldness in decribing Islamic violence. I am a Catholic who sees the same violence in the hearts of people of my faith. Not all — but many — would rather condemn the world to another nuclear holocaust rather than risk losing their comfort or wealth or disturb their fear of change. Albert Einstein, professing no religion, worked before he died to warn against the continued use and build-up of nuclear weapons. Ther is no greater genocide — no greater insult to all humanity — than the theft of food/ medicine/ clothing/ etc. and the threat to human existence that nuclear weapons represent. It is a gross crime against humanity to possess them. If someone possesses a nuclear weapon — it means they are willing to use it.

    My point is to denounce the cultural and religious leaders of my western roots — who cannot feed and house and medicate the people they serve. They use fear and intimidation to humiliate anyone who condemns their values — yet they are more violent — at least AS VIOLENT — as any Muslim.

    My only power is in prayer and in seeking truth. I respect your journey toward truth and your denunciation of genocidal violence. Perhaps God will lead us both toward a determined non-violence — along the road of peace.

    I am not naive. Despots and tyrants have often hid behind labels of religion. The late Pope John Paul II worked to prevent a repeat of the carnage and the inhumanity of man to man he experienced in wartime. His words echo throughout the corridors of our current crises:

    Violence never again! War never again!
    Terrorism never again! In God’s name,
    May all religions bring upon earth, Justice and peace,
    Forgiveness, life, and love!
    His Holiness Pope John Paul II; January 24, 2002

    Sudan had a long history of Islamic conquest and

    continues to this day. Recently, Sudan was brutalized
    by the Saudi-backed Gen.Numeri’s Islamic fascism. In
    1992 a religious decree-fatwa-was issued that gave
    justification to the military onslaught against the
    non-Muslims. Islamic barbarism and genocide continues
    in Darfur to this day.
