Most of us would choose to leave a country where war was about to break out: our own safety would speed our exit. What about people who choose to stay - even when told to leave - so that they can help by letting the invading forces know that they are going out under bombs in order to safeguard the ambulances ?
Hard to believe, isn't it, that civilians - paid for out of their own pockets - choose to risk death so that others can live.
This book records the daily events, during the war which Israel conducted against Gaza, a year ago. The author was there - wrote this as a daily blog - so it is first-hand knowledge, vivid, factual, and utterly compelling.
Israel has many weapons that it deploys against the Palestinian national movement and one of them is a powerful public relations machine. For years, it has allowed Israel to extend illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank, demolish homes, erode the rights of Palestinians and imprison and torture them, all in the name of democracy and security. In the days leading up to last winter's attacks on Gaza, Israel's public relations machine was oiled up to give its version of events and without the watchful eye of journalists -- who were denied entry into the territory -- and it appeared likely to succeed. Yet Palestinians "citizen journalists" in Gaza and a few internationals living in the middle of the conflict decided to report a very different story than the carefully controlled Israeli narrative. Sharyn Lock was one of these voices.
I warmly recommend this book: it should be read, and widely distributed among friends, as it shows - to some of us perhaps for the first time - that the Palestinians are a warm, delightful people who are being treated like prisoners of war, enclosed by walls and armed guards, prevented from leading any kind of life - so that the Israeli state can ultimately drive them out of their own country, and take their land.

How and when palestinian issue emerged

In 1975, by its resolution 3376 the General Assembly established the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian people. At that time, Secretary-General of the United Nations was Kurt Waldheim.

So, the question is how this resolution emerged in 1975? The analysis of historic documents revealed two undeniable facts:

Fact 1. In 1920s-30s, Palestinian Muslims committed massacre of Jews in occupied Israel murdering thousands of children and civilians. The murder was organized by the founder and supreme leader of the Arab Higher Committee, Haj Amin al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, and supported by British Administration of Palestine. The primary objective was elimination of all Jews from Palestine. The massacre was, in reality, the Holocaust committed by Palestinian Arabs.

Haj Amin was a close friend of Hitler. In 1941, Haj Amin came to Berlin and visited Hitler. He brought the Holocaust idea to Hitler. In 1943, Amin organized Bosnian Muslim battalions in Croatia comprising some twenty thousand men. The battalions were put in Waffen-SS units, fought Yugoslav partisans in Bosnia; thousands of Serbs, Roma ('Gypsies') and Jews hunted down by Haj Amin's SS troops were killed by those same troops, or they were sent to the Islamic death camp Jasenovac. After the WWII, the International tribunal declared Haj Amin war criminal; however, he escaped prosecution (thanks to Britain), fled to Egypt and then Palestine where he organized Fatah. After his death in 1974, Arafat, who was Haj Amin lieutenant, became Fatah commander. He organized PLO. Thus, PLO and Fatah were created by people close to Nazi and based on Nazi ideology.

Fact 2. Kurt Waldheim was a Nazi SS officer in WWII, committed numerous crimes in Europe and responsible for death of thousands of European. He is a war criminal.

These two facts clearly show that the Palestinian issue was introduced to commemorate Nazi-Palestinian Muslims unbreakable criminal connection and to recognize PLO-Fatah as Nazi successor. After 1980, every Secretary General, including the current, and entire UN staff uphold Nazi legacy of Kurt Waldheim.
