“Now we can sense the sweet scent and the soulful breeze of the spring, a spring that has just begun and doesn’t belong to a specific race, ethnicity, nation or region, a spring that will soon reach all territories in Asia, Europe, Africa and the US.” This cloud of words, this gentle precipitation, came from the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when addressing the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on the 26th September 2012. The truth of these words by Ahmadinejad had, once again, penetrated my waking consciousness in stark contrast, and simultaneously, of another cloud, an Israeli thunder cloud, that rains down death and destruction upon the innocent, seldom a militant, in the open air prison that is Gaza today.

The U.S. has long opposed any “unilateral” action on the part of the Palestinians to seek fulfillment of their right to self-determination, and there is a very real threat that if the Palestinian Authority goes to the United Nations in September seeking international recognition of Palestinian statehood, the U.S. will respond by cutting or eliminating aid that the P.A. has come to depend on in order to function.

Celebrations in Gaza as the Fatah & Hamas sign a deal to end the division and hold elections within a year. Palestine celebrates and Israel weeps.

The long-awaited peace in the Middle East can only come by accepting realities as they are, and by telling the American people the truth. Such honesty, of course, is in severely short supply.
(Rome) On July 20, 2010, Second Protocol, an Italian on line publication, self-proclaimed as a “defender of Human Rights”, posted a demand for the removal from her position as High Representative For Foreign Affairs of Catherine Ashton because she supports Hamas in Gaza.
SECOND PROTOCOL writes:

The Israeli blockade on Gaza was begun as a direct response to the election of Hamas in January 2006 and also as an evil sick ‘joke’ and not in response to Hamas seizing power back from Fatah!
On February 19, 2006, Gideon Levy wrote for HA’ARETZ: Continue reading

Hamas offers a six-month ‘calm,’ but Israel signals it won’t follow suit.
April 16, 2008
Former US President Jimmy Carter continued his tour of the Middle East,Tuesday, against the wishes of the Israeli and US governments, which have strenuously objected to his planned meetings with Hamas leaders. Carter met Nasser al-Shaer, a senior Hamas leader, and laid a wreath on the grave of Yasser Arafat. “I’m just trying to understand different opinions and communicate, provide communications between people that won’t communicate with each other,” the former US leader said. “If (the Hamas leadership) have anything constructive to say … then I would bring that to other people.” Carter is scheduled to meet Khaled Mashaal, the exiled leader of Hamas, in Syria on Friday.

Over the last few months, Israel has been threatening to mount a large-scale invasion over parts of the Gaza Strip, in response to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli collective farms and cities.
As the governing authorities in Gaza, Hamas have refused to condemn rocket-firing, arguing they are a legitimate weapon of resistance.
The homemade rockets were first introduced by Hamas in the 2000 Intifada as a form of retaliation against Israel’s incursions.
But today, Israel claims that its continuing blockade of Gaza and its moves to reduce the Gaza Strip’s power supplies is a direct consequence of the rocket attacks.
