Gaza Under Attack

CHOMSKY’S STATEMENT ON ISRAEL’S ATTACK ON GAZA – “IT IS MURDER”! “The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping
rocket fire into Israel, it is not about achieving peace.
The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically-cleanse Palestinians.
Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army… and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder.
“When Israelis in the occupied territories now claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population they are crushing. You can’t defend yourself when you’re militarily occupying someone else’s land. That’s not defense. Call it what you like, it’s not defense.”

  1. I’m glad it’s not just me – I always wondered how some home-made rockets with no guidance were considered properly countered by F-16s with laser-guided bombs … and 6″ artillery shells guided by drone cameras … and 120mm guns on tanks with massive armour ….

  2. don’t forget white phosphorous and cluster bombs in residential areas…..
