Facts and opinions about the 2014 Gaza conflict between Israel and the Hamas regime; many lessons in survival, deterrence, urban combat and other aspects related to those tragic events.

This is a very hot, vehemently debated topic. When such occurrences do happen, keeping the discussion on rational tracks becomes very difficult. So, while I think that the case of this renewed war in Gaza has a lot of lessons to be learned from a survivalist point of view, I will abstain from commenting or saying anything in favour of one side or another. Instead, I will let you read the news and verifiable or verified information.

My family has already been the victim of genocide and I don't want anyone else to suffer the same fate. So the best way to discuss matters such as this one is not by actually debating but putting forward the evidence so that anyone interested might be able to make his or her own opinions about it base - hopefully - in arguments as objective as available evidence suggests.

Here, I give you a significant number of links to websites and pages that provide direct, clear evidence on this matter so that you judge the facts yourself with at least some information regarding the issue. Be advised that some people might find part of this content disturbing and the only reason, and that the only reason to present it here is to show things in an objective way. Please note that the sites and pages were listed following alphabetical order, based on their respective titles.

While some people may object the use of and alphabetical listing instead of following a chronology, there are two reasons why I elected to do so: First, because it is almost impossible to establish a correct chronology in such a fluid environment, and second, because as you will see, it is really relatively unimportant because facts end-up being the same in the end.

Profiles and bios

Here you have some profiles and bios that show who is who and what they really stand for in the Middle East conflict:

Ahmad al-Shukeiri - First Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Haj Amin al-Husseini - Nazi collaborator, Palestinian Arabnationalist and Muslim leader in Palestine.



Politicians, military officers, religious leaders, and people in general have also raised their voices many times in order to tell the world their opinion about this issue. Here you have some:

"It is the duty of Muhammadans in general and Arabs in particular to . drive all Jews from Arab and Muhammadan countries... Germany is also struggling against the common foe who oppressed Arabs and Muhammadans in their different countries. It has very clearly recognized the Jews for what they are and resolved to find a definitive solution for the Jewish danger that will eliminate the scourge that Jews represent in the world.", Haj Amin al-Husseini, 1943.

"Arabs, rise as one man and fight for your sacred rights. Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion. This saves your honor. God is with you", Haj Amin al-Husseini, Radio Berlin, 1944.

"Our basic aim is the destruction of Israel.", Ahmad al-Shukeiri.

"There are fifty million Arabs. What does it matter if we lose ten million people to kill all of the Jews. The price is worth it." , Abid Saud King of Saudi Arabia 1947.

"This will be a war of extermination and momentous massacre, which will be spoken of like the Mongolian Massacres.", Azam Pasha, Secretary General of the Arabs League 1947.

"I declare a holy war my Moslem brothers. Murder the Jews! Murder them all!", Haj Amin al-Husseini, Mufti of Jerusalem 1947.

"Egypt is ready to plunge into a total war that will be the end of Israel", Radio Cairo, May 17, 1967.

"The Jews are a peculiar people: Things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews. Other nations drive out thousands, even millions of people, and there is no refugee problem. Russia did it. Poland and Czechoslovakia did it. Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchmen. Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese--and no one says a word about refugees. But in the case of Israel, the displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees. Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single Arab. Arnold Toynbee calls the displacement of the Arabs an atrocity greater than any committed by the Nazis. Other nations when victorious on the battlefield dictate peace terms. But when Israel is victorious it must sue for peace. Everyone expects the Jews to be the only real Christians in this world.", Eric Hoffer.

"Shlomo Carlebach used to say, if he meets a student who says he is a Protestant, he knows he is a Protestant; if he meets a student who says he is a Catholic, he knows he is a Catholic. If he meets a student who says he is a human being, he knows he is a Jew." David Wolpe.

"The question shouldn't be "Why are you, a Christian, here in a death camp, condemned for trying to save Jews?' The real question is "Why aren't all the Christians here?", Joel C. Rosenberg, The Auschwitz Escape.

"And you wanted to escape,' a man near me whispered to another man. 'You wanted to run off into the woods and fight. But do you see? Do you see what the rest of them think about us? These people would sell you back to the Nazis for a sack of potatoes and then toast you at their dinner table.", Alan Gratz, Prisoner B-3087.

"Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious one to seek counsel against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and from eternal death. My advice, as I said earlier, is: First, that their synagogues be burned down, and that all who are able toss in sulphur and pitch; it would be good if someone could also throw in some hellfire. That would demonstrate to God our serious resolve and be evidence to all the world that it was in ignorance that we tolerated such houses, in which the Jews have reviled God, our dear Creator and Father, and his Son most shamefully up till now but that we have now given them their due reward.", Martin Luther, The Jews and Their Lies

"We should never forget that everything Adolph Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighers did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany.", Martin Luther King Jr.

"The Jews are the most despicable and contemptible nation to crawl upon the face of the Earth, because they have displayed hostility to Allah.", Atallah Abu Al-Subh.

"We cannot agree to a programme that is intended to poison the minds of our children... Holocaust studies in refugee camps is a contemptible plot and serves the Zionist entity with a goal of creating a reality and telling stories in order to justify acts of slaughter against the Palestinian people." Statement from the Hamas Ministry of Refugee Affairs, Feb 28, 2011.

"Palestine is Islamic, and not an Islamic emirate, from the river to the sea, that unites the Palestinians. Jews have no right in it, with the exception of those who lived on the land of Palestine before World War I." Halil Al-Hayya.

"Allah, take the Jews and their allies, Allah, take the Americans and their allies... Allah, annihilate them completely and do not leave anyone of them.", Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Bahar.

"[Hamas will] never recognize the legitimacy of the Zionist state that was founded on our land.", Khaled Mashaal.

"[Hamas] will not change a single word in its covenant [which is calling for the destruction of Israel]", Mahmoud Zahar.

"We do not recognize the Israeli enemy, nor his right to be our neighbor, nor to stay (on the land), nor his ownership of any inch of land...", Mahmoud Zahar

"By God, we will not leave one Jew in Palestine.", Abdel Aziz Rantisi.

"This is a fight for the homeland. It is either us or the Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure to their former homes. Any of the old Palestine Jewish population who survive may stay, but it is my impression that none of them will survive... We shall destroy Israel and its inhabitants and as for the survivors - if there are any - the boats are ready to deport them.", Ahmad al-Shukeiri.

Prophet Muhhamad also said some things about the Jews:

[Sura 5:20] Recall that Moses said to his people (the Jews), "O my people, remember GOD's blessings upon you: He appointed prophets from among you, made you kings, and granted you what He never granted any other people."

[Sura 5:21] "O my people, enter the holy land (Israel) that GOD has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers."

[Sura 7:137] "We let the oppressed people inherit the land, east and west, and we blessed it. The blessed commands of your Lord were thus fulfilled for the Children of Israel, to reward them for their steadfastness, and we annihilated the works of Pharaoh and his people and everything they harvested."

[Sura 7:144] He said, "O Moses, I have chosen you (the Jews), out of all the people, with My messages and by speaking to you. Therefore, take what I have given you and be appreciative."

"In a war you behave like in a war. You don't kill whom you want. You kill whom you find. Next time they will all be killed, young and old.", Ragheb bey el-Nashashibi.

"The Jews are the Jews... They do not have any moderates or any advocates of peace. They are all liars. They must be butchered and must be killed... The Jews are like a spring - as long as you step on it with your foot it doesn't move. But if you lift your foot from the spring, it hurts you and punishes you... It is forbidden to have mercy in your hearts for the Jews in any place and in any land, make war on them anywhere that you find yourself. Any place that you meet them, kill them.", Dr. Ahmed Abu Halabiyah, Islamic University of Gaza.

And finally, something from just an ordinary person, somewhere in the world.

"Have you ever considered the similarities? They turn and instantly want to kill human beings. With one exception. Zombies are fiction, Jihadi Islamists are real." From an anonymous user, in a forum.

Credit goes to and the Anti-Defamation League for some of these phrases.
