Israeli Documents Show Deliberate Policy Of Keeping Gazans At Near Starvation Levels (Absolutely Sickening!)

The Gaza Strip is an Israeli occupied concentration camp.   That is a fact that you will never find anywhere in the Zionist Jewish controlled Mainstream media.   Most of our controlled media actually turns a blind eye to the plight of the 1.5 Million Palestinian people living in extreme hardship in the confines of the Gaza Strip, and do not show the brutality of the Israeli occupation forces.  It is absolutely sickening to behold.

Now to show how bad things are in the Gaza Strip, and to further expose Israeli brutality towards the impoverished people of Gaza, I want to present the following article from a great blogsite, called "South Lebanon" at www.jnoubiyeh.com, entitled: "Israeli government documents show deliberate policy to keep Gazans at near-starvation levels".   The facts presented here are absolutely sickening and atrocious, but it is important for everyone to understand the truth about Gaza. Therefore I am presenting the entire article here for my own readers to view:

Israeli government documents show deliberate policy to keep Gazans at near-starvation levels


By Saed Bannoura - IMEMC News

Documents whose existence were denied by the Israeli government for over a year have been released after a legal battle led by Israeli human rights group Gisha. The documents reveal a deliberate policy by the Israeli government in which the dietary needs for the population of Gaza are chillingly calculated, and the amounts of food let in by the Israeli government measured to remain just enough to keep the population alive at a near-starvation level. This documents the statement made by a number of Israeli officials that they are "putting the people of Gaza on a diet".

In 2007, when Israel began its full siege on Gaza, Dov Weisglass, adviser to then Prime-Minister Ehud Olmert, stated clearly, “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.” The documents now released contain equations used by the Israeli government to calculate the exact amounts of food, fuel and other necessities needed to do exactly that.

The documents are even more disturbing, say human rights activists, when one considers the fact that close to half of the people of Gaza are children under the age of eighteen. This means that Israel has deliberately forced the undernourishment of hundreds of thousands of children in direct violation of international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.

This release of documents also severely undermines Israel's oft-made claim that the siege is "for security reasons", as it documents a deliberate and systematic policy of collective punishment of the entire population of Gaza.

Gisha's director said, in relation to the release of documents, "Israel banned glucose for biscuits and the fuel needed for regular supply of electricity – paralyzing normal life in Gaza and impairing the moral character of the State of Israel. I am sorry to say that major elements of this policy are still in place."

In its statement accompanying the release of the documents, Gisha wrote:
The documents reveal that the state approved "a policy of deliberate reduction" for basic goods in the Gaza Strip (section h.4, page 5*). Thus, for example, Israel restricted the supply of fuel needed for the power plant, disrupting the supply of electricity and water. The state set a "lower warning line" (section g.2, page 5) to give advance warning of expected shortages in a particular item, but at the same time approved ignoring that warning, if the good in question was subject to a policy of "deliberate reduction". Moreover, the state set an "upper red line" above which even basic humanitarian items could be blocked, even if they were in demand (section g.1, page 5). The state claimed in a cover letter to Gisha that in practice, it had not authorized reduction of "basic goods" below the "lower warning line", but it did not define what these "basic goods" were.

Commentator Richard Silverstein wrote: "In reviewing the list of permitted items for import, you come to realize that these are the only items allowed. In other words, if an item is not on the list, it’s prohibited. So, for example, here is the list of permitted spices: Black pepper, soup powder, hyssop, sesame. cinnamon, anise, babuna (chamomile), sage. Sorry, cumin, basil, bay leaf, allspice, carraway, cardamon, chiles, chives, cilantro, cloves, garlic, sesame, tamarind, thyme, oregano, cayenne. Not on the list. You're not a spice Palestinians need according to some IDF dunderhead. And tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, toys, glassware, paint, and shoes? You can forget about them too. Luxuries all, or else security threats."

Despite the disturbing nature of the documents, which show a calculated policy of deliberate undernourishment of an entire population, no major media organizations have reported the story.

The full text of the released documents, and the original Freedom of Information Act request filed by Gisha, can be found on Gisha's website.

NTS Notes:  Readers, what is happening in Gaza is an abomination!   The criminal Zionist Jews are keeping these people locked up in a concentration camp at near starvation levels.  Meanwhile, their military bulldozes their homes, bombs them with impunity, or shoots them outright, without a care about international outrage!

Again, we must get the truth about Gaza out to everyone.  Please take the information enclosed within this article and spread it around for others to see for themselves.   The people of Gaza deserve so much better than to be permanently locked up in a prison and now, with this newest information presented, the strong possibility of being starved to death!

More to come

PALESTINE ~ HEALTH IN THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES

ISRAEL ~ THIS IS NOT POLICY. IT IS BARBARISM.
http://snippits-and-slappits.blogspot.com/2010/03/israel-this-is-not-policy-it-is.html
Everyone agreed to impose an economic siege on Palestine.Dov Weissglas had the punch line: "It's like an appointment with a dietician. The Palestinians will get a lot thinner, but won't die."

In the Gaza holocaust there was deliberate ruin of Gaza's ability to feed itself. Destroyed were the flour mill & all greenhouses, every animal killed.

There is the destruction of orchards & farmland. Up to 80% of land is contaminated rendering farming too dangerous.

They have killed the fishing business; there are no fish when once there was great plenty.

Families grow gardens. The IDF comes in & destroys it a few days before harvest.

WERE THESE HAMAS TERRORIST CHICKENS FIRING ROCKETS?
http://snippits-and-slappits.blogspot.com/2009/02/were-chickens-firing-rockets.html

As part of their genocidal programmme, the DU and chemicals have rendered most of the farmland useless and then they say that the Palestinians never took care of the land!

Oh yes I forgot to add that during the Holocaust they made sure to render all the water treatment facilities useless. As a result the Gazans are still drinking dirty water because Israel will not let them import what they need. Some areas get flooded in sewage filled water as a result.

In the West Bank they tend to do things like flood the lower down Palestinians with Settler sewage to the point many cannot care for their animals and the children are becoming ill. Another favourite and still common trick is to dump dirty diapers in wells.

The Palestinians all have big barrels on their roofs to gather water and it is not a surprise to find that IDF have urinated or defecated in these barrels. Note the theme with feces, how very Talmudic. These people are fascinated with things involving bodily waste.

The world sends food and it rots in trucks at Rafah. In one case Italy sent thousands of boxes filled with foods all boxed up for each family. They were not allowed through because the boxes all included a small bottle of either honey or jam, "not considered a necessity". So NOTHING got through!

THE PROPOSAL TO PUT HUNGRY PEOPLE ON A DIET ~ This article made me cry. Fully detailed were the responses of my own Canadian government to this atrocious action.

I am so ashamed of my government and those who back Harper and our military. I am numb at the moment to think the country I grew up in, with so much, and that I believed was free, has now shrunk so far from decent human values.

A UN report stated that 9% of Palestinian children under age 5 suffer from brain defects caused by malnutrition. Now, the U.S. wants to try to prevent the U.N. from delivering all food to Palestinians and they laugh about it.

Ottawa also made clear last week that Canada would withdraw financial support ~ unless Hamas renounced violence, recognized Israel and accepted previous Israeli-Palestinian peace agreements.

The lopsided nature of Ottawa's demands is striking, particularly since Israel already exists as a country, with secure borders and the unwavering support of the most powerful nation on Earth. Meanwhile, Palestinians, after 40 years living under military occupation, are essentially powerless.

And so are we, powerless. My friend, what can we do? Our mail is not even taken over to Palestine, service was suspended awhile back. There are times when hatred would be sorta satisfactory.

But... no. I cannot imagine sinking to their level.

In the Gaza holocaust they ruined Gaza's ability to feed itself. Gone,the 1 flour mill & all greenhouses, every edible animal killed.

There is the ongoing destruction of orchards and farmland. Up to 80% of farmland is contaminated.

There are no fish in the market when once there was great plenty.

Families grow gardens, & the IDF rips it up a few days before harvest.

Settlers flood the Palestinians with sewage & there is disease. They dump dirty diapers in wells.

Palestinians use barrels on their roofs to gather water & IDF urinate & defecate in them.

The world sends food & it rots. Italy sent 1000's of boxes of boxed for families. Because the boxes had a small bottle of either honey, "not a necessity" NOTHING got through!

I just spent about an hour on a very good set of comments here. It would not post. I cut it way down. It would not post. I cut it down to only a few urls and minimal commentary.

It would not post.

Then it ate the post.

I am not very happy cos I had a lot of good stuff to share on this topic.

Goes off in a pithy mood and hurts toe kicking the wall.

I fully agree, Noor... The anger you feel is felt by myself, and I had a very hard time actually putting up this article without having some very choice words and thoughts about these criminals....

Now comes the real question: Why the HELL have the people of the world turned a blind eye to this blatant attempt at total genocide????

It does seem that these damned Satanic criminals can get away with anything they want! (almost)
