Israel: more like "shit onto the nations"

It is the smell of shit. Across the occupied West Bank, raw untreated sewage is pumped every day out of the Jewish settlements, along large metal pipes, straight onto Palestinian land. From there, it can enter the groundwater and the reservoirs, and become a poison.

Standing near one of these long, stinking brown-and-yellow rivers of waste recently, the local chief medical officer, Dr Bassam Said Nadi, explained to me: “Recently there were very heavy rains, and the shit started to flow into the reservoir that provides water for this whole area. I knew that if we didn’t act, people would die. We had to alert everyone not to drink the water for over a week, and distribute bottles. We were lucky it was spotted. Next time…” more…

Talking about the “promise” 60 years ago of Israel that will be “a light unto the nations”.

    To all the Good Jews.Who you celebrate the independence from? Did the Palestinians ever occupy you? All what we know that Europe turned on you and you exiled us by force. If you need your independence go after the Germans, Polish, and the many Europeans who killed you. We will say it loud on May 23 in Chicago that we will never forget. Palestinians are the Key holders of peace. Join the thousands and strengthen the network of the thousands of activists. Express your opinion and let the many panelists know of where Palestine should go. Support our efforts to empower our community and assert the Palestinians right of return. Join the many Palestinian Americans and their supporters in Chicago commemorating the 60th year of the forced exile of the Palestinian people. Be pro active, ask questions to the Panelists and discuss the current event. We must empower ourselves and make a strong network for Justice, Peace and Freedom. Be pro active. Enough talks, < HREF="http://www.panc2008.com" REL="nofollow"> actions are required.<>

    The Palestinian Sewer“Further deadly sewage floods are feared after a wave of stinking waste and mud from a collapsed septic pool inundated a Gaza village, killing five people, including two babies,” the Associated Press reports:The collapse has been blamed on residents stealing sand from an embankment. It highlighted the desperate need to upgrade Gaza’s overloaded, outdated infrastructure–but aid officials say construction of a modern sewage treatment plant has been held up by constant Israeli-Palestinian fighting.The report gets a bit more specific as to the meaning of “constant Israeli-Palestinian fighting”:Umm Naser is about 300 metres [300 million microns] from the border with Israel, in an area where Palestinians have frequently launched rockets into Israel and Israeli artillery and aircraft have fired back. The situation worsened after Hamas-linked militants captured an Israeli soldier last June in a cross-border raid, and Israel responded by invading northern Gaza. The Jerusalem Post reported earlier this month that metal provided by Israel had been used in the construction of those terrorist rockets. And why was Israel selling the Palestinians metal? “For the construction of a sewage system in Gaza.” Palestinian babies drown in sewage because of the bloodlust of Palestinian grown-ups. What a fetid political culture.http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/?id=110009865
