In this new round of savage Israeli attacks on the Palestinian people
in Gaza, many civilians including women and children have been killed
and injured. This is terrorism, period. However, Zionist media in NATO
countries abstain from describing the Israeli occupation government and
its forces as terrorist. Thus doing, the Zionist media are participant
in the Israeli terrorism and war crimes against the Palestinian people.
Honest, peace-loving, and brave journalists should not hesitate to
describe the Israeli occupation terrorist forces as they really are.
Israeli leaders should also be referred to as who they really are,
terrorists and war criminals.
Honest, peace-loving, and brave human rights activists should not
hesitate to demonstrate, protest, and demand the arrest of members of the
Israeli occupation terrorist forces as well as members of the Israeli
occupation terrorist government for their war crimes, terrorist attacks,
and crimes against humanity.
In order to prepare for the arrest of the Israeli war criminal
terrorists, law suits have to be filed against them in all countries, in
order to be tried in these countries or before the International Court
of Justice in the Hague, like all previous war criminals.

At least four more killed in a new Israeli strike in Gaza
Sunday December 28, 2008 11:50 by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC Agencies
Israeli occupation terrorist air forces shelled on Sunday morning a
Palestinian security compound in Gaza that includes a prison and
different security centers. At least four Palestinians were killed and
several others were wounded. The number of casualties of the ongoing
Israeli offensive since Friday at noon arrived to 282.
The shelled center is an old modified building, known as Al-Saraya,
which includes government offices, security offices and a prison. The
number of casualties is most likely to increase as more residents are
buried under the rubble.
Shortly before the center was shelled, the Israeli occupation
terrorist air forces shelled Jabalia and a target in northern Gaza,
killing two Palestinians and wounding several others.
The Israeli terrorist attacks started on Saturday at noon; at least
282 Palestinians were killed and more than 900 were wounded.
The number of casualties is expected to increase especially since
dozens of wounded residents are in serious conditions and the siege
already emptied Gaza hospitals of the basic medical supplies.
Dozens of civilian homes and facilities were in addition to police
headquarters and civil society institutions were also shelled.
Also on Sunday morning, the Israeli occupation terrorist army shelled
a medical storage facility in Rafah, and a truck carrying fuel. At least
three were killed and several others were wounded.
