Protests have been happening across Israel in response to Israeli aggression despite the constant parroting in the western media that all Israelis support this war.
On Saturday 5th August over 10,000 people marched in Tel Aviv in one of the largest anti-war demonstrations Israel has ever seen. Not to be outdone, Israeli anarchists blockaded the entrance to the Ramat David air force base in the north of the country from which fighter planes have been leaving to bomb Israel.
Heavy handed goons from the IDF hit back over the weekend with one Israeli demonstrator being shot twice in the head with rubber bullets at an anti-war demo in the Palestinian village of Bil’in (video here). The man shot has suffered permanent brain damage and several other demonstrators were also shot or badly beaten.
Today the ceasefire in Lebanon seems to be holding although trigger happy Israeli soldiers shot at a group of Hezbollah fighters in the town of Hadatha in south Lebanon, killing one of them, within hours of the ceasefire beginning.
A spokesman said an Israeli patrol felt “under threat” when the fighters approached it and had not broken the terms of the ceasefire and what’s more one of them looked at his bird and another spilt his pint.
Both sides are claiming victory in the conflict which lasted a mason friendly 33 days with Hezbollah congratulating Lebanon on its “big victory” and thanking citizens for their patience during the violence.
In an attempt to win the propaganda war the Israeli foreign misistry has called on zionists the world over to get online to support Israel with a letter posted on a pro-Israeli website stating:
“Many of us recognize the importance of the Internet as the new battleground for Israel’s image. It’s time to do it better, and coordinate our on-line efforts on behalf of Israel. An Israeli software company have developed a free, safe and useful tool for us – the Internet Megaphone.
Please go to http://www.giyus.org, download the Megaphone, and you will receive daily updates with instant links to important internet polls, problematic articles that require a talk back, etc.”
the void says … come and have a go if you think yer hard enough!
