US Senate Unanimously Passes Resolution
Supporting Israeli Assault on Gaza
Friday July 18, 2014 23:19 by Chris Carlson - 1 of International
Middle East Media Center Editorial Group
Following a similar resolution passed last week by the U.S. House,
the U.S. Senate voted Thursday night to support Israel’s ongoing
invasion of the Gaza Strip.
No dissenting vote was cast, and no
mention was made of the hundreds of Palestinian civilians, most of whom
are women and children, that have been killed by Israel in the past ten
Senate Resolution 498 was authored by Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), with additional support by Ben Cardin (D-MD)
and son of former Republican party politician Ron Paul, Rand Paul
Paul is urging the Senate to pass his own bill, S. 2265,
which would end all U.S. foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority until
Hamas is barred from the
new Palestinian unity government, among other stipulations.
The resolution was passed on the very same night Israel
launched its current ground
offensive into the Gaza Strip.
The United States and Israel,
this past week, signed an agreement under which $429 million of American
taxpayers’ money "will be transferred immediately to Israel" to further
fund the Iron Dome missile system, which has
recently come under
scrutiny by prize winning Israeli defense and aerospace engineering
expert Dr. Moti Shefer.

“I strongly condemn the heinous attacks being perpetrated by Hamas
and other terrorist groups against Israel. No country should have to
live under a constant threat of aggression against its people, and I
stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel as it defends itself against this
shocking violence. My heart goes out to the citizens of Israel and the
countless civilians in Gaza caught in this Hamas-initiated violence.”
MJ Rosenberg says it’s all about pro-Israel money, and that Senators
have a double standard for US military actions and Israeli ones:
Note that even progressive saints Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken,
Sherrod Brown, and Bernie Sanders found nothing in this to object to.
For the record, no U.S. military adventure has had the support of all
hundred senators in decades. But, hey, this is Israel. And, more
important, this is AIPAC. And cash.
Here’s more about the money from the Israel lobby. The Nation is
reporting that the “anti-Iran lobby machine dominates Capitol Hill.”
Reporter Eli Clifton is frank about “The Money Behind the Lobby”:
Sheldon Adelson Chairman and CEO, Las Vegas Sands Corporation
Estimated worth: $36.8 billion Iran-related contributions: Over $1.5
million to the FDD [Foundation for the Defense of Democracies] between
2008 and 2011; at least $1.04 million to AIPAC since 2007
• In October 2013, Adelson—who along with his wife, Miriam, was the
GOP’s biggest donor during the 2012 presidential campaign—said the
United States should drop a nuclear bomb in the Iranian desert to
persuade Tehran to abandon its nuclear program.
Paul Singer Founder, Elliot Management hedge fund Estimated worth:
$1.5 billion. Iran-related contributions: $3.6 million to the FDD
between 2008 and 2011; $1.5 million to AIPAC between 2010 and 2011
• Singer was listed as the American Enterprise Institute’s
second-largest donor in 2009, giving $2.31 million to the organization
between 2009 and 2011. He was also a major fundraiser for Mitt Romney’s
2012 presidential campaign.
Bernard Marcus Co-founder, Home Depot Estimated worth: $3.6 billion
Iran-related contributions: $10.7 million to the FDD between 2008 and
2011, making him its biggest donor in that period; $2.1 million to the
FDD in 2012; $650,000 to the AEI between 2007 and 2012; $2.45 million to
AIPAC between 2007 and 2012
• In the 2012 presidential campaign, Marcus contributed $60,000 to
the Republican National Committee and $20,000 to a Mitt Romney Super
PAC; he also maxed out his personal contributions to the Romney
The contributions to AIPAC from all three donors were directed to the
American Israel Education Foundation, which calls itself “the charitable
organization affiliated with AIPAC.”
That last organization, AIEF, is
what sent Florida Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor to Israel.
And Castor refused to say anything publicly on behalf of her
Palestinian-American constituent Tarek Abu Khdeir, who was brutally
beaten by Israeli police.
Let’s be clear about this. Democrats are getting support from an
organization backed by Republican high-roller Sheldon Adelson,
who called on Obama to nuke Iran. Support for Israel transcends
American politics. It has not been politicized. Even Rand Paul supported
the Gaza resolution yesterday.

26 Gazans killed by Israel since sunset, bringing Friday
total to 63
Maan, 18/07/2014, 23:48
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) --
Twenty-six Palestinians including eight members of a single family
were killed by invading Israeli occupation forces in the Gaza Strip on
Friday evening, while the death of a young man wounded earlier in the
week brought the total number of deaths in Israel's 11-day long assault
to 298 and more than 2,200 injured.
The deaths bring the total killed since the beginning of the ground
invasion late Thursday night to 63, as deaths and injuries across the
besieged coastal enclave soared on the first day of the assault in both
the northern and southern regions of the territory.
Of the 63
killed since the beginning of the Israeli invasion, 26 died after Gazans
broke their fast at sunset on Friday evening as Israeli air strikes
pounded the Strip.
Eight members of the Abu Jrad family including
four children were killed when a missile struck their home in Beit
Hanoun including Naim Musa Abu Jrad, 23, Abd Musa Abu Jrad, 30, Siham
Musa Abu Jrad, 26, Rija Aliyan Abu Jrad, and four children: Haniyah Abd
al-Rahman Abu Jrad, Samih Naim Abu Jrad, Musa Abd al-Rahman Abu Jrad, 6
months, and Ahlam Musa Abu Jrad.
Four members of the Shaath
family were killed and four were injured including one seriously after
an air strike on their home in the Hayy al-Manara neighborhood of Khan
Younis around 10:30 p.m.
Three members of the Abu Sneineh family
were also killed in a strike on their home in eastern Rafah in the
southern Gaza Strip and three others were injured. The dead were named
by Gaza medical authorities as: Faysal Abu Sneineh, 32, Emad Faysal Abu
Sneineh, 18, and Nizar Fayez Aub Sneineh, 38.
Muhammad Talal al-Saneh,
20, died around 10:30 p.m. as a result of an Israeli attack, Palestinian
Ministry of Health spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.
Salmi, 23, was brought dead to the Gaza European Hospital, while Ghassan
Salem Abu Musa Abu Azzab, 28, and his brother Muhammad Salam Abu Musa
Abu Azzab, 19, from Hayy al-Manara in Khan Younis also died as a result
of an Israeli attack.
Muhammad Saad Mahmoud Abu Saadeh was killed
in an Israeli airstrike in eastern Khan Younis on Friday evening.
Hamza Mohammad Abu Hussein, 27, was killed in an airstrike on
eastern Rafah on Friday evening, while Mohammad Abu Sa'da was killed in
an artillery shelling eastern Khan Younis.
Imad and Qassim Alwan,
both children, were killed as a result of artillery shelling in eastern
Rizk Ahmad al-Hayk, 2, perished in air strikes in
Shawwa Square in Gaza City, while Sarah Muhammad Bustan, 13, was killed
in Hayy al-Tuffah in Gaza City.
Yusif Ibrahim Hasan al-Astal, 23,
died of wounds he sustained in Khan Younis a week ago.
Israeli occupation forces launched "Operation Protective Edge" 11 days
ago (in response to the disappearance and killing of three Israeli
teenagers in the West Bank. Palestinians in Gaza retaliated with
launching rockets which did not kill or injure any Israelis).
Hamas has denied any involvement in the killings, and has instead
accused Israel of exploiting the deaths to launch an all out assault on
the group, one of the few in Palestine that maintains an armed wing
capable of attacking Israel.
Israel ground assault overwhelms south Gaza hospital
Ma'an, 18/07/2014 23:43
KHAN YOUNIS (AFP) --
As Israeli occupation forces pushed into Gaza overnight, intense tank
fire shook parts of Khan Younis, sending a flood of patients into the
southern city's Nasser hospital.
The shells smashed into
buildings near the border with Israel, prompting thousands to flee their
homes under the cover of darkness, only missiles lighting up the sky.
At Nasser hospital, doctors and nurses working 24-hour shifts were
on alert for the wave of patients who began arriving in the early hours.
"The situation is very, very difficult," said doctor Kamel Zaqzuq.
"This is much, much more difficult than the last war," he said,
referring to the previous major conflict between Israel and Hamas
militants in November 2012.

Israel Drops Cancer-inducing Bombs on Gazans

A Norwegian doctor working in Gaza has strongly criticized Israel for
using cancer-inducing bombs against Palestinian civilians.
According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, Dr. Erik Fosse recently
stated to Press TV that the majority of patients hospitalized in Gaza
are civilians injured in attacks on their homes, and that about thirty
percent of these victims are children.

known as DIME, is an explosive device developed to minimize damage to
things that are incidental to the intended target, known as "collateral

rather significantly damaging
blast radius, and are believed by medical experts to have severe
biological effects on those hit with the bomb’s micro-shrapnel.

since been tested repeatedly on the people of Gaza, who,
according to the Electronic Intifada, have long served as

UN Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA said, today, that more than
30,000 people have fled their homes to take shelter in the 34 UNRWA
schools that are located across the Gaza Strip, since Thursday.
Previously, UNRWA had estimated that 20,000 Palestinians had sought

Israel launched its ground assault on northern and southern Gaza.
Multiple evacuation orders have been issued across the northern Gaza
Strip since the conflict began, telling 100,000 Palestinians to leave
their homes in compliance with the operation, according to Ma'an.
However, as all borders are closed, Gazans have nowhere to go.
Additionally, Israel has said that all those who remain in their
homes will be considered potential targets.
