Buy Cheap Kamagra Online

This article was written in 2006 - unfortunately today it still applies. Worse than Apartheid Blood-stained Gaza street                                           'When it was only apartheid, buy cheap kamagra online we had some hope.'


By Chris Hedges
Israel has spent the last five months unleashing missiles, buy cheap kamagra online attack helicopters and jet fighters over the densely packed concrete hovels in the Gaza Strip. 

The Israeli army has made numerous deadly incursions, buy cheap kamagra online and some 500 people, buy cheap kamagra online nearly all civilians, buy cheap kamagra online have been killed and 1, buy cheap kamagra online600 more wounded. 

Israel has rounded up hundreds of Palestinians, buy cheap kamagra online destroyed Gaza’s infrastructure, buy cheap kamagra online including its electrical power system and key roads and bridges, buy cheap kamagra online carried out huge land confiscations, buy cheap kamagra online demolished homes and plunged families into a crisis that has caused widespread poverty and malnutrition.
 
Civil society itself—and this appears to be part of the Israeli plan—is unraveling. Buy cheap kamagra online Hamas and Fatah factions battle in the streets, buy cheap kamagra online despite a tenuous cease-fire, buy cheap kamagra online threatening civil war. Buy cheap kamagra online

And the governing Palestinian movement, buy cheap kamagra online Hamas, buy cheap kamagra online has said it will boycott early elections called by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, buy cheap kamagra online done with the blessing of the West in a bid to toss Hamas out of power. Buy cheap kamagra online

(Remember that Hamas, buy cheap kamagra online despite its repugnant politics, buy cheap kamagra online was democratically elected.) 

In recent days armed groups loyal to Abbas have seized Hamas-run ministries in what looks like a coup.

The stark reality of Gaza, buy cheap kamagra online however, buy cheap kamagra online has failed to penetrate the consciousness of most Americans, buy cheap kamagra online who, buy cheap kamagra online when they notice the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, buy cheap kamagra online prefer to debate the merits of the word “apartheid” in former President Jimmy Carter’s new book, buy cheap kamagra online  “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.” 

It is a sad commentary on the gutlessness of the U.S. Buy cheap kamagra online press and the timidity of the Democratic opposition that most Americans are not aware of the catastrophic humanitarian crisis they bear so much responsibility in creating. 

Palestinians are not only dying, buy cheap kamagra online their olive trees uprooted, buy cheap kamagra online their farmland and homes destroyed and their aquifers taken away from them, buy cheap kamagra online but on many days they can’t move because of Israeli “closures” that make basic tasks, buy cheap kamagra online like buying food and going to the hospital, buy cheap kamagra online nearly impossible. Buy cheap kamagra online

These Palestinians, buy cheap kamagra online after decades of repression, buy cheap kamagra online cannot return to land from which they were expelled. 

The 140-plus U.N. Buy cheap kamagra online votes to censure Israel and two Security Council resolutions—both vetoed by the United States—are blithly ignored. 

Is it any wonder that the Palestinians, buy cheap kamagra online gasping for air, buy cheap kamagra online rebel as the walls close in around them, buy cheap kamagra online as their children go hungry and as the Israelis turn up the violence?

Palestinians in Gaza live encased in a squalid, buy cheap kamagra online overcrowded ghetto, buy cheap kamagra online surrounded by the Israeli military and a massive electric fence, buy cheap kamagra online unable to leave or enter the strip and under daily assault. 

The word “apartheid, buy cheap kamagra online” given the wanton violence employed against the Palestinians, buy cheap kamagra online is tepid. 

This is more than apartheid. 

The concerted Israeli attempts to orchestrate a breakdown in law and order, buy cheap kamagra online to foster chaos and rampant deprivation, buy cheap kamagra online are on public display in the streets of Gaza City, buy cheap kamagra online where Palestinians walk past the rubble of the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, buy cheap kamagra online the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of National Economy, buy cheap kamagra online the office of the Palestinian prime minister and a number of educational institutions that have been bombed by Israeli jets. 

The electricity generation plant, buy cheap kamagra online providing 45 percent of the electricity of the Gaza Strip, buy cheap kamagra online has been wiped out, buy cheap kamagra online and even the primitive electricity networks and transmitters that remain have been repeatedly bombed. 

Six bridges linking Gaza City with the central Gaza Strip have been blown up and main arteries cratered into obliteration. Buy cheap kamagra online

And the West Bank is rapidly descending into a crisis of Gaza proportions. 

The juxtaposition of what is happening in Gaza and what is being debated on the U.S. Buy cheap kamagra online airwaves about a book that is little more than a basic primer on the conflict reinforces the impression most outside our gates have of Americans living in a distorted, buy cheap kamagra online bizarre reality of our own creation. Buy cheap kamagra online

What do Israel and Washington believe they will gain by turning Gaza and the West Bank into a miniature version of Iraq? 

How do they think people who are desperate, buy cheap kamagra online deprived of hope, buy cheap kamagra online dignity and a way to make a living, buy cheap kamagra online under attack from one of the most technologically advanced armies on the planet, buy cheap kamagra online will respond? 

Do they believe that creating a Hobbesian nightmare for the Palestinians will blunt terrorism, buy cheap kamagra online curb suicide attacks and foster peace? 

Do they not see that the rest of the Middle East watches the slaughter in horror and rage—its angry, buy cheap kamagra online disenfranchised young men and women determined to overcome feelings of impotence and humiliation, buy cheap kamagra online even at the cost of their own lives?
 
And perhaps they do see and understand all this. 

Israel and Washington probably do get the recruiting value of this repression for Islamic militants. 

But these Israeli attacks, buy cheap kamagra online despite the rage and violence they breed against Israelis and against us, buy cheap kamagra online also create conditions so intolerable that Palestinians can no longer reside on their land. Buy cheap kamagra online

More than 160, buy cheap kamagra online000 civil servants have not received full salaries for almost nine months. 

These government employees support families that number more than a million Palestinians. 

And a United Nations report states that more than two-thirds of Palestinians are now living below the poverty line. Buy cheap kamagra online

The unemployment rate is more than 50 percent. Buy cheap kamagra online The Palestinian Foreign Ministry says 10, buy cheap kamagra online000 Palestinians have emigrated in the last four months and almost 50, buy cheap kamagra online000 others have applied to leave.

Israel, buy cheap kamagra online with no restraints from Washington, buy cheap kamagra online despite the Iraq Study Group report recommendations that the peace process be resurrected from the dead, buy cheap kamagra online has been given the moral license by the Bush administration to carry out what is euphemistically in Israel called “transfer” and what in other parts of the world is called ethnic cleansing. 

Faced with a demographic time bomb, buy cheap kamagra online knowing that by 2020 Jews will make up only 40 to 46 percent of the overall population of Israel, buy cheap kamagra online the architects of transfer, buy cheap kamagra online who once held the equivalent status in Israeli society of the Ku Klux Klan, buy cheap kamagra online have wormed their way into positions of power in the Israeli government. Buy cheap kamagra online

Washington and Israel, buy cheap kamagra online I suspect, buy cheap kamagra online know the cost of this repression. 

But it is beginning to appear as though they accept it—as the price for ridding themselves of the Palestinians.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has installed in his Cabinet a politician who openly calls for the expulsion of the some 1.3 million Israeli Arabs who live inside Israel. Buy cheap kamagra online

Avigdor Lieberman’s “Israel Is Our Home” Party, buy cheap kamagra online part of Olmert’s governing coalition, buy cheap kamagra online proposes involuntary transfer in a region populated mostly by Arab citizens of Israel, buy cheap kamagra online shifting those people to a future Palestinian state that would include Gaza, buy cheap kamagra online parts of the West Bank and a small slice of northern Israel. Buy cheap kamagra online

All Israeli Arabs who continued to reside in the territory of transfer would automatically lose their Israeli citizenship unless they took a loyalty oath to the state and its Jewish symbols. 

The inclusion of Lieberman, buy cheap kamagra online the David Duke of Israel, buy cheap kamagra online into the Cabinet is an indication to most Palestinians that the worst is yet to come.

The debate over Jimmy Carter’s book, buy cheap kamagra online one that dishes up a fair number of Israeli myths about itself and states a reality that is acknowledged even by most Israelis, buy cheap kamagra online misses the point. 

The question is not whether Israel practices apartheid. 

Apartheid is a fond dream for most Palestinians. 

The awful question is rather will Israel be able to unleash a policy so draconian and cruel that it will obliterate a community that has lived on this land for centuries. 

There are other, buy cheap kamagra online far more loaded words for what is happening to the Palestinians. 

One shudders to repeat them. 

But unchecked, buy cheap kamagra online unstopped, buy cheap kamagra online the current wave of violence and abuse meted out to the Palestinians will echo down the corridors of history as one of the greatest moral and tactical blunders of the early part of this century, buy cheap kamagra online one that will boomerang on Israel and on us, buy cheap kamagra online bringing to our own doorsteps the evil we have allowed to be delivered to the narrow alleys and refugee camps in Gaza. 

When it was only apartheid, buy cheap kamagra online we had some hope.
