Will the Truth be Revealed After?

Israel has launched a massive attack on the Palestinian cities and towns of the West Bank in the name of fighting “terrorism”.  Reporters and news media have been forcibly denied access to the battle zones and hence can mainly only rely on the Israeli army and trapped Palestinians and internationals for news from the region.  A comparison of many news sources around the world, including American mainstream news sources like CNN and those of the Palestinians, like the Palestinian Chronicle, reveal major conflicts in the realities being presented.  The Palestinian Chronicle is reporting many first hand accounts from people trapped in their homes in the West Bank.  One such terrible story revealed tells of how the Israeli IDF tricks residents to leave their homes for a few hours in order to get food and then are shot at by Israeli snipers and are forced to stay inside while some are shot.  I have yet to hear of any such story being reported by any major American news sources.  This is only one of many, many stories that are not being reported because either the news media cannot see or hear the story and no one is telling it or the major media is not reporting it or rather hiding it in order to save face for Israel and its supporters.  Now, Pres. Bush has requested an immediate halt to the Israeli attack on the West Bank and their withdrawal while sending Secretary Powell to mediate and implement the recent UN resolution (1407).  Bush knows what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians.  He knows that if he does not make the right statements, namely telling Israel to STOP!, then what comes after, he too will be held responsible as a willing supporter. Already, he has given much support to what Israel has been doing and already really is just as culpable. The question that remains is whether the truth of what Israel has done in the Palestinian lands will be revealed after, if and when, Israel ceases and withdraws from the occupied lands of the Palestinians.  Because it is highly unlikely that Bush will want anything to do with what Israel has done if it gets out to the American public the full extent of what has really gone on there.

If and when Israel withdrawals, what picture will the world be able to see if the free people of Palestine are able to report it and account it in honest and the world is willing to listen?  These are the details which absolutely must be told to the American public by the mainstream news:

If and when Israel withdrawals, what picture will the world be able to see if the free people of Palestine are able to report it and account it in honest and the world is willing to listen?  These are the details which absolutely must be told to the American public by the mainstream news:

How many Palestinians and internationals have been killed by the Israeli army and the Israeli citizen militias?

How many Palestinians and internationals have been killed by the Israeli army and the Israeli citizen militias?

How many young Palestinian men who have been rounded up have been (1) executed (2) imprisoned (3) tortured?

How many women and children have been killed or those who held no arms against the Israeli soldiers?

How many homes and buildings (and people’s cars) have been destroyed and the extent of damage?

How many homes and buildings (and people’s cars) have been destroyed and the extent of damage?

The condition of streets and infrastructure like electricity and sewer and water?

The condition of streets and infrastructure like electricity and sewer and water?

This is only a partial list of questions which MUST be answered and accounted for, not for the sake of numbers for each number is obviously incalculable, but so that all those who ignorantly defend this Israeli action can see the real picture that they themselves helped to create by their support.  Because, those who now really do see the many glimpses of the horrible picture from the little news coming by cell phone calls from people trapped in their homes, have no illusion about how much more dark the reality is than that on American TV. They do not need to wait for CNN to finally show hours of tape of all the attacks and destruction wrought on the Palestinians because they already have an idea.  It is those Americans who only watch for the latest news about what is happening from CNN or most American news sources that are sitting in the dark and need to be shown a true picture, or THE BIG PICTURE.

So I hope that Israel does STOP and withdrawals immediately or soon and that the Palestinian people will be able to account for all those missing, dead and the destroyed houses and cars and will be able to go to the world, the UN, the mass media of America, and paint for the world the true picture of what has occurred.  This is why Bush made such a “historic” speech today, because he knows that unless he has such a speech to fall back on he too will be held responsible for okaying Israel’s actions, although he already is.  It is funny really, how a president goes from talking like an uncaring hick telling Arafat to stop the violence on Saturday and giving historic peace speeches detailing Israeli wrongs on Thursday.

But I hope that he made the speech not just to save face but to really stop ISRAEL’s attack and to save lives.  And I pray that this is really what will happen for I would hate to see that this “historic” speech is just a part of the game of saving face while Powell can really do nothing and all of this is just part of the big plan!  I hope that Sharon and the supporters or Israel’s militaristic solutions are really just really stupid and not evil geniuses scheming to use the Palestinians as a lever to incite neighboring Arab countries like Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon so that the US and Israel would have justification for attacking any one of them, especially Iraq.  I truly hope that Sharon and his supporters are just making ignorant mistakes and are not acting like someone who attacks and wound’s one’s brother and then steps on his wounds in front of him until he gets a violent reaction from him which he can use to justify attacking him too.
