After a month of "fighting" (mostly Israeli stormtroopers slaughtering innocent unarmed civilians) and the reported "1900" dead (the actual number is very much higher) Palestinians, mostly women and children, there again appears to be a "temporary lull" in the brutal Israeli WAR on Gaza, and indeed it is WAR by every proper definition of conflict and warfare...
However, the insanity of the Israeli leadership does come through from time to time, for according to this report, through the Desert Peace website, at www.desertpeace.wordpress.com, the insane Prime Minister, Benyamin Miliewkowsky (Netanyahu) and much of the lunatics in the Israeli leadership are now claiming that the brutal Israeli WAR, called "Operation Protective Edge" (Got to love the name, and exactly what are they "protecting"?), is NOT a war by their own definition! The article is entitled: "Daffynitions: Operation "Protective Edge" Was Not A War" and I have it right here for my own readers to view for themselves.. I do have my usual thoughts and comments to follow:
After 29 days of fighting, 64 fallen IDF soldiers, and more than 1,900 Palestinians killed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government insists that Operation Protective Edge was not a war.
Israel insists Protective Edge was ‘not a war’State Attorney rejects petition to High Court of Justice, claiming financial assistance not dependent on declaration of war.

In responding to High Court of Justice petition calling for the operation to be declared a war, the State Attorney claimed Tuesday that the petition must be rejected outright for two main reasons.
The State said the petition does not provide a sufficient cause for the court to order the government to announce the declaration of war a widely-shared opinion in the coalition on every foreign and defense policy in general, and the declaration of war in particular.
The State Attorney also claimed that the fundamental assumption underlying the basis of the petition which said “the necessity of declaring the start of war is a social and financial need of the highest order” was mistaken.
“The declaration of war in and of itself does not necessarily guarantee compensation or financial aid to citizens harmed by the conflict,” wrote the State Attorney in the response.
“Given that, not declaring war does not signal that there would be such compensation. The matter of compensation for direct or indirect damages from war are regulated by the law, and it does not require a declaration of ‘the start of war’ to decide on compensation.”
The State Attorney emphasized that the “State worked quickly to implement regulations from the legislation on property tax during Operation Protective Edge, and it has taken and it will take many steps to provide a wide-reaching response on additional financial and social issues, and its actions are not dependent on whether or not a war was declared.”
In the response to the petition, the State Attorney stressed that “the decision to identify the campaign in 2006 as a ‘war’ was symbolic and ceremonial, and had no budgetary or legal significance.”
Labor Party members of Knesset first called on the prime minister to declare Protective Edge a war as early as three and a half weeks into the fighting, to enable the government to widen its assistance efforts.
NTS Notes: The picture at the beginning of this article actually comes from several years back, but it indeed shows exactly how these monsters twist words around to give everyone their own "definition" of words, in their continued efforts to try to make the criminal and lunatic state of Israel and any crimes committed by the "chosen ones" look good.....The term "liars" indeed comes to mind....
It is clear that Israel and its lunatic leadership does not want their senseless WAR on Gaza and the slaughter of the innocent Palestinians holed up in what is truly the world's largest open air concentration camp to be interpreted as a WAR... This is to make sure that no WAR reparations are ever to be paid out to the victims of their genocidal WAR and to have a loophole to make sure that they do not have to go to any international court on charges of WAR crimes against humanity...
Yes, the attack and slaughter of the innocent people of Gaza is indeed a WAR... Israel is out to flatten and conquer all of Gaza in this WAR for their ultimate goal of eliminating the Palestinians themselves through genocide. It is truly sad that most of the Jewish slave nations on this planet will now obey their Jewish masters and make sure that the gullible public does not see their criminal act of mass slaughter as a WAR!
