The “up and coming” well-known and much admired Israeli politician and parliament member Ayelet Shaked of the ultra-nationalist Jewish Home [political party] has again branded Palestinians as terrorists, declaring as the 4th Zionist invasion of Gaza in the past ten years was being unleashed: “Mothers of all Palestinians should also be killed” she told the Daily Sabah, as she called for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to "little snakes."

In a call for Genocide, she added, “They have to die and their houses should be demolished so that they cannot bear any more terrorists," Shaked said, adding, "They are all our enemies and their blood should be on our hands. This also applies to the mothers of every dead terrorist we eliminate."

On 7/7/14 Shaked wrote on her Facebook page:
Israeli MP Ayelet Shaked
"Behind every terrorist stands dozens of men and women, without whom he could not engage in terrorism. They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there."
The development comes as many officials from various countries have slammed Israel's air strikes on the Gaza Strip.  Many have condemned the offensive diatribe, accusing Israel of massacring the Palestinians and have lashed out at Israel, saying it is committing state terrorism against the Palestinians in the region.  Reacting to Shaked's remarks, the Turkish premier said Israel's policy in Gaza is no different than Hitler's mentality. "An Israeli woman said Palestinian mothers should be killed, too. And she's a member of the Israeli parliament. What is the difference between this morality and Hitler’s," he said speaking in parliament, as he also questioned the world's silence toward Tel Aviv's ongoing atrocities.

As the Zionist regime busies itself "Mowing the lawn," the obscene phrase used in Israeli military circles to describe how, every couple of years or so, Gaza is subjected to massive international crimes against humanity is a massive display of firepower to “trim back Hamas’s military capabilities and ambitions” in the words of its allies in the US Congress.  Its US funded armed forces are yet again attacking and invading Gaza in violation of international and U.S. law. As former US Congressman Dennis Kucinich reminds us, its construction of settlements violates the Oslo agreement. Its Central Bank dries up the Gaza economy and blocks payments to Gazan civil servants. Its total control brings the Palestinians to utter subjection and total despair. Israel can kill, injure, and humiliate Palestinians at will, with impunity, which is exactly what gave rise to Hamas and strengthens Hamas’ hold in Gaza.

As journalist Rami Khoury reminds us, military assaults against Gaza cause Israel to lose ground in three vital respects inasmuch as they enhance Palestinian military resistance, intensify global condemnation and pressure due to Israel’s disproportionate military savagery, and “deepen the nationalist identity and will to struggle for justice among all Palestinians, especially those children in Gaza who will grow up with a single aim in life: to vanquish colonial Zionism”.

Meanwhile, on 7/22/14 one of Americas largest airlines, Delta, has announced it is canceling all flights to Israel citing reports that a rocket landed near Tel Aviv's airport. This against the backdrop of a growing BDS [Boycott Divestment Sanctions] campaign increasingly similar to the one that destroyed the pro-Zionist Apartheid regime in South Africa. The developments come as the UN agency for Palestinian refugees has recently said women and children make up a sizable number of Palestinian fatalities caused by Israeli attacks on the besieged region.

Undeterred, the US Senate, while claiming to be overworked, did find time to pass (100-0) an AIPAC-drafted resolution supporting the Gaza invasion. There is not one word of compassion for Palestinians killed or injured, not a word calling for peace, not a word indicating that the Senate would perhaps prefer to see the invasion end. On the other hand, it calls for dissolution of the Palestinian unity government which has been Netanyahu's goal since it was established.

For example, the Senate Resolution declared that it was:
 “Expressing the sense of the Senate regarding United States support for the State of Israel as it defends itself against unprovoked rocket attacks from the Hamas terrorist organization. Whereas Hamas is a United States-designated terrorist organization whose charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel; Whereas Hamas continues to reject the core principles of the Middle East Quartet (the United Nations, the United States, the European Union, and Russia)--recognize Israel's right to exist, renounce violence, and accept previous Israeli-Palestinian agreements; whereas Hamas has killed hundreds of Israelis and dozens of Americans in rocket attacks and suicide bombings.”
The same kind of Resolution that AIPAC sends more than 80 to Congress each year to make sure Congress does the right thing by the Zionist regime still occupying Palestine.

U.S. Senate vote supporting the killing of Palestinians by Israel passes unanimously, 100-0. Wow!  What does that even mean?
On 7/22/14, Israel's ambassador to the U.S. to the media [said] that Israeli soldiers should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for the "unimaginable restraint" they are showing in fighting Hamas, backing his country's right to self-defense.  Ambassador Ron Dermer made the comments at an event hosted by the Christians United for Israel group late Monday, according to a text of the speech posted on his Facebook page.  Comparing Hamas rocket fire on Israel to Germany's bombardment of London during World War II, Dermer slammed those "shamelessly accusing Israel of genocide and (who) would put us in the dock for war crimes.  The truth is that the Israeli Defense Forces should be given the Nobel Peace Prize... a Nobel Peace Prize for fighting with unimaginable restraint."

As for the truly pathetic Ms. Shaked, whose psychotic words and deeds not only trumpet savagery against Palestinians and praise those who would undertake a genocidal mission such as today being witnessed and documented in Gaza, but have also become a clarion call corrupting further  the minds of Israeli youth and colonial squatters. May the sick woman live to see the dismantling of the last of the 19th Century colonial enterprises which she calls to slaughter those whose land it still criminally occupies.
