The Gaza Bombardment -
What You're Not Being Told|
The corporate media isn't just distorting the facts on the Gaza assault, they're flat out covering them up.
PREFACE: To all the people attempting to write us off by calling us antisemitic, go watch this video that we made in October of 2013. In that video we harshly attacked racist and antisemitic elements that have been spreading hate through social media. We then followed that up with several confrontations on Facebook where we made it very clear that these idiots are not welcome in our circle. So drop the stupid ad hominem attacks. I'm not influenced by such childish behavior.
Update: The Palestinian death toll as of July 21st, rose to over 500.
Israel's official justification for this wholesale slaughter: the murder of three Israeli teenagers which Israel blames on Hamas. That's not the real reason. First of all Israel has not produced one single piece of evidence implicating Hamas or even a Palestinian in the murders, and in fact the the evidence we do have indicates that that murderers were Israeli.
You see on Tuesday July 1st, The Jerusalem Post released the audio of the kidnapped teen's distress call to police, and in that call the kidnappers can be heard telling the boys to put their heads down in HEBREW. According to the Jerusalem Post prior to being leaked to the public this audio was being held under a gag order by the Israeli government.
So why is Israel really attacking Gaza?
It's not about self defense and it's obviously not about avenging those three teenagers. Those are just cover stories for the naive.
What this is really about is natural gas.
It turns out that Gaza has quite a bit of natural gas on its coastline. One of the largest sources in the region. British Gas, which holds a joint exploration agreement for the area estimates that the fields hold at least 1 trillion cubic feet of gas. That gas belongs to the Palestinian people and they should be the ones to benefit from it. Israel disagrees.
(An interesting side story on this issue: At one point Russia was bidding for a chance to develop Gaza's gas fields.)
After the death of Yasser Arafat, under questionable circumstances, Israel has controlled those fields, and British Gas has negotiated with Tel Aviv.
With power divided between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, the Palestinians have been too weak to put up any meaningful ,resistance and Israel would like to keep it that way.
The Unity Government between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority threatens Israel's control of those fields, and as such it has to be destroyed.
It's pretty basic really. These are the real motives of all wars: resources, territory and power. They'll always come up with an excuse, and it's easy to fall for them if you don't do your research, but there's also a really easy way to avoid getting duped: always stand against wars of aggression. Period. Make it a matter of principle, and the facts and morality will always end up being on your side.

And speaking of morality, even if those teenagers had been killed by Hamas, what kind of psychopath thinks that this gives Israel the right to go and kill over a hundred people who had nothing to do with it? We're talking about little kids here.
I'm not going to show you the pictures of the dead or dying children here in this video, but I have looked at them, and as a father it's almost unbearable to see. If hearing about those bombs falling doesn't phase you emotionally, if this is just a political debate for you, then go look at the pictures (these for example). You have no right to defend what Israel is doing, if you don't have the courage to even glance at the consequences.
And anyone who would justify these crimes after seeing the civilian casualties should be ashamed of themselves.

"You can't handle the truth...!" (OH YEAH.... TRY ME!!!!!!)
This sure seems to be the way our government operates of late (especially)... While sound bytes such as "need for transparency" are thrown around like wrapping paper on Christmas morning, we are spoon-fed "the news" by the major media with all kinds of hidden agendas and "special interests", lied to by our elected officials and flat out IGNORED when we demand answers about operations that affect the way we live and the security of our very existance within the borders of our beloved country and as human beings in general!! People like Edward Snowden are villified and accused of treason for being brave and fed up enough to risk their lives to expose the truth!
Are we stupid? Are we so reactionary and immature as a whole that we will panic and cause pandemonium if we were privy to what actions are being taken by our federal government and the reasons for them? Do we not deserve to know the truth if it could affect our daily lives and the choices we make? Or is there in fact something far more sinister at work??? Is our government actually eavesdropping into every aspect of our communications because they FEAR us or want to PROTECT us?? I, for one, feel strongly that only I can truly determine what is best for me and need full disclosure to be properly prepared to make appropriate choices in my own life!!
How many of you have felt betrayed by a loved one when they have kept from you some pertinent detail that may have caused you to act in a different manner or feel differently about something?? I sure have... I say I would much rather be "hurt with the truth, rather than comforted with a lie"!!! We are constantly being told that there are things that "in the interest of national security" that must be withheld from us... which if we are talking about military strategy or specifics of deployment or the identity of our special ops soldiers who are taking actions to secure our safety and ability to remain free, then I agree, these details should not be broadcast to the world - Yet they are!!
But, when we demand an accounting for how atrocities such as Bengazi, 9/11, etc. happened and what is being done about it or we want to see actual documentation that would prove once and for all our own president's eligibility to BE president and put our worries to rest that he may in fact be a liar, traitor and be acting in a subversive manner to harm this country and as a result each and every one of us... When we want to know how much of our daily communications are being monitored and to what purpose or want the bottom line in regards to legislation such as "Obamacare" or "Quantative Easing"... we are brushed off as if we mean nothing and have no business knowing such complicated and detailed information! Yet, we are obviously credited with wisdom and insight enough to still vote for these same politicians who seem to think we are unfit for "full disclosure"!!
The greatest tool and weapon ANYONE can arm themselves with, is KNOWLEDGE! It is said, "Knowledge is Power", so is it that the bottom line here is that our government DOES NOT want it's own citizens to be EMPOWERED????? And if that IS the case, WHY?? What is it that they would fear from US? If we do not start making them accountable, truly holding their "FEET TO THE FIRE" and reminding THEM who it is they work for..... You and I, then I hate to think where we are headed!! We simply need to look back at history to see that every great nation is destined to fall when it's government gets overinflated, bloated and arrogant and when it ceases to serve it's people!!
So, while some of you may think that alot of what I post for example is "conspiracy theory" or like a friend recently said to me, "never gonna happen", there is much to substantiate the need for further inspection at the least, and most definitely a demand for The Truth and Full Disclosure by our officials about things like FEMA, Homeland Security, the IRS and Federal Reserve, HAARP, DARPA, etc. Do not be so quick to deny the very real possibility that our own government as a whole is NOT working in our best interests.... That would be NAIVE and IGNORANT and a very careless attitude to take at this juncture, in my opinion... But you have to decide for yourself - What is your freedom worth to YOU? How much time can you spare to do some research and actually ponder the current state this country is in?? Is it worth giving up a few evenings out, refraining from watching this weeks episode of "Sons of Anarchy" or whatever mindless drivel you veg out to in front of the T.V.? Is it worth having your friends roll their eyes at you when you begin to ask questions or discuss the possibility of weather manipulation, FEMA (internment) camps and how soon our dollar will collapse?? IT IS TO ME!!!
Please, keep in mind that these people we have elected to represent us are NOT Gods, they are human beings - with all the failings and shortcomings that go along with that... They usually do not carry any special degrees and do not have any rare gifts or special powers that give them insight or wisdom or an ability to be deeply discerning and they are most definitely not inocculated with Sodium Pentathol each time they make a speech either... They CAN and OFTEN DO lie!!! Power Corrupts, this is a simple but well known fact! If we all just begin to use the brain that God gave us to think with and to exercise our ability and right of Free Will (which coincidentally comes with an ability to make discerning decisions) and then Stand Up for what we know is right... We CAN make a difference!!
I do not even necessarily mean that we will in the end CHANGE the course or direction in which the world is headed in, but we can make a difference in the world around us!! Because THE TRUTH is like a beacon in the night, guiding ships over turbulent waters... THE TRUTH is like a Fire that refines silver and gold, burning away impurities... THE TRUTH is a shelter that covers and keeps us warm and dry during a storm... THE TRUTH is not relative, it is not subjective, it is not wishy washy, it is not based on interpretation... THE TRUTH stands firm on it's own merit and although manipulated at times, it is unchangeable and remains TRUE Forever!!!
THE TRUTH is, at the end of the day, really all we have.... IF we seek it, that is!!
So, seek it out... Find it and then Stand up and shout out proudly and loudly your right to The Truth!

"THIS IS YOUR WORLD... SHAPE IT OR SOMEONE ELSE WILL!"
To a point - it's about perception (what you chose to see or focus on) but a lot of it has to do with ACTION!!! Some of the strongest individuals I know of, are those who through adversity have bulldozed their way clear of the muck and got to the other side and have a real life now! To blindly or numbly accept our circumstance is a passive and NON-ACTIVE approach to Living.... Rather than shrug our shoulders and shake our heads at the injustices and horrors of the world, wouldn't it be better to STAND UP and CHANGE things as much as we can where ever we are???
So, let's take this to heart - If we look around and don't like what we see, who can we blame but ourselves, because in some small part we all have contributed to it getting to this point and if we do nothing - Nothing will ever change!! We can start today - NOW! This very minute! We can start by loving ourselves and showing kindness to ALL! Forgiving ourselves and those we have held hostage with our unforgiving hearts, our stubborn minds and harsh words!! We can think of doing for others more often, sooner and without reluctance! We can share a smile with someone on the street even when we are in a hurry or frustrated or sad! We can make a point to HELP not harm everywhere we go and with all of our words and deeds. We can be forthright, honest and gentle and be trustworthy as well as trusting! We can be strong for others and in spirit and we can be gracious and humble as well!
There are a million ways we can DO SOMETHING on an everyday basis and it truly does start at home.... By teaching our children to value PEOPLE and honesty and kindness instead of things and status and appearance... We can stop saving for a new car and instead save time at the end of our day for our loved ones... We can remember how much our parents sacrificed for us and loved us unconditionally and be there for them UNCONDITIONALLY without them having to ask us first... We can let people off the hook instead of making them feel bad just to feel superior ourselves.... And we can accept that we are EXACTLY the person we were meant to be and begin to embrace all of our past and every hope for tomorrow rather than knocking ourselves down for not being who we think we should be or for what we have done in the past....
Evil is only HOPELESSNESS, DOUBT and FEAR, not an immovable force that will break us down or that can withstand anything!!! Once we realize that - We can do ANYTHING!!! LOVE TRULY CAN CONQUER ALL!!!! <3

And you are in a position right now
to make a positive difference in life.
This day, this situation,
is filled with many challenges and problems.
And behind each challenge,
behind each problem,
are valuable opportunities.
The surest and most positive way forward
is through meaningful achievement.Make a difference...
that truly means something to you,
and you’ll lift up all of life.It’s not selfish or greedy,
to achieve your most deeply felt desires.
What’s selfish is to do nothing...
to accept less than you could be,
when you could be making a difference.
♥Make the commitment, Make the effort,
Make a difference, And achieve.
Lift your own life higher
and pull all of Life along with you!"
Sometimes, I think we are the most miserable and hopeless
when we isolate ourselves, draw inward - focusing on our own turmoils, issues, trials
and allow the life challenges we personally face to occupy so much of our thoughts and our time,
not to mention zapping our energy...
I truly believe that when we put ourselves "out there",
allow ourselves to "open up", be vulnerable and focus our energy OUTWARDS ---
Away from ourselves and the overwhelmingness of our own "problems"...
And towards something other than SELF...
Someone or something that we can care about and for...
That is when we can actually begin to heal, renew our strength and spirit,
become energized, re-focus and re-channel our thinking
and very possibly even change the course of our own life,
along with making a difference in the lives of others and the world around us!!
There is so much to be said for the Joy of Giving,
the feeling of making a positive impact in another's life,
of helping to nurture and heal a broken heart or spirit,
being able to be instrumental in someone becoming
who they were intended to be or being a part of
some one's success or helping them gain knowledge
or insight that will help them on their life's journey!
Scientific studies have been conducted to determine "what happens"
when a person "GIVES" and when someone is the recipient of another's giving...
When endorphin levels were measured during a simple exchange of a hug, compliment or smile
given by one person to another, the person who was GIVING the compliment or the hug,
had FAR HIGHER levels of chemicals that produce feelings of joy, contentment and satisfaction
being created and released in the brain than the one accepting the "gift"... WOW!!
Basically that tells me that the saying "It is better to Give than to receive" is pure truth!!
Our physiological design, our own bodies, support (even prove) the fact --
that when we "Give of Ourselves", we benefit even more
than the one we are supposed to be helping --
We are healing ourselves, emotionally and physically when we GIVE!!!
Most of us have had some MAJOR traumas and injuries to endure throughout our lives...
Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually... A lot of us have been damaged, beat down,
broken, left alone and tossed away like we are NOTHING!!
We rarely have had anybody to care for us,
to whisper words of encouragement to chase away our nightmares or self-doubts,
to wipe our tears or hold us while we wept or to tell us we are special, beautiful,
loved and so important and to encourage us to dream and
help us believe we are capable of great things and are worthy of great love, compassion, kindness...
When we have not had people to take care of us,
it is sometimes difficult to consider others (especially people we don't know well)
and to give of ourselves, because possibly we are still waiting
for someone to be there for US, to validate us and care for us.
Deep down we are always aware of what we should have been given,
what was withheld from us, what we longed for...
Inside, that innocent, but wounded and lonely, child may be very much alive
and desperately needing what they never received!
Sometimes it's easy to get lost in that feeling of being cheated out of the beautiful gifts
of acceptance and love and the joys of being wanted and cherished
and so we can become so preoccupied with "looking for love",
wishing for it to finally come to us as adults and of course,
what usually comes instead is more hurt, disappointment and betrayal!!
It may be really hard to even wrap your head around what is going on outside of your own inner turmoils,
to look around and see another's pain or loss without it making your own sting even more sharply!
It could be nearly impossible to cultivate or maintain anything beyond superficial relationships
because we have cut ourselves off emotionally and put up walls so we can't be hurt anymore,
or we may feel inept at making social connections due to lack of experience and confidence
and probably we have some major trust issues.
Many of us are told we don't know how to set boundaries, take care of ourselves
or do what is needed to ensure we are getting our needs met.
We may have been called "Co-Dependent" or convinced
that being a "Caretaker" is all bad and is "unhealthy" for us...
Then we wonder if picking up the phone at 2 a.m. when our girlfriend is crying over a broken heart
means we are neglecting ourselves or that we are being taken advantage of -
We think we must be "in denial" if we actually ENJOY baking for the class, shopping for our elderly neighbor, doing resumes for our friends for free or we like being a "homemaker"/"stay at home Mom" because we LOVE to cook for our family and we take pride in a beautiful, clean home!
Maybe we even feel hopeless when we realize that always wanting to Teach or go into Social Work
or become a Nurse is only because we only feel validated when doing for others!!
Then we beat ourselves up even more for having a "Need to Nurture" - Like that is a BAD THING??!!!
I am not trashing the concept of "Co-dependency",
but I am challenging it's relevance in many cases where we have suffered losses and been hurt
due to lack of love and caring in our own lives when we needed it most!
I personally FEEL BETTER when I am doing things for others,
when I feel a part of something, when I feel like I can help someone
or make a positive difference in the world around me!!
And I do not believe that it is because I somehow don't feel deserving of help, of being nurtured
or that I think I am unlovable!! I have even been told that I want to help others
so I don't have to focus on what I need to do in my own life,
or that it makes me feel more in control or normal when I am focusing on someone else's problems!
Although that may be true for some people,
I have found that it is good to not focus on my own "stuff" so much!!
Not that I am hiding from it, how can I really?
It's always with me, it's my past... I have LIVED IT!
But I don't have to let it be my today or my future...
I will not be defined by my scars!
Instead, I can allow my wounds to heal by opening myself to others,
allowing myself and my pain to be exposed may help someone else who is hurting,
being an example of selflessness and claiming victory over being a victim
by taking an active role in Living and Loving and Sharing!!
I believe we were Created to Love...
To be "In Relationship" with one another!
We were specifically designed to be creatures that CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER!!
The true definition of LOVE (as is spoke of in The Bible) is... "TO GIVE"!!
So, if we want Love in our Lives,
rather than waiting for it to come to us,
or accepting that we will never be loved
because we were made to feel less than, unimportant and unworthy -
We can experience all the LOVE
and the joy that comes from it by GIVING IT!!
When we create the opportunity for love to take root and grow,
it can't help but touch us too!
We, thankfully, have an unlimited resource of it within each of us
and the more Loving, Charitable and Kind energy
we put forth in the universe
the more Love there is to make the world go 'round!! :)
So, get out there, take a risk,
learn to live by truly LIVING LOVE
by showing it to all those you come into contact with!
And if you feel moved to want to help someone,
feel drawn to someone in need or who's having hard times -
Do whatever you can to make their world a brighter place!!
I guarantee that your sun will shine even more brilliantly when you do!!! <3
With Much LOVE to you all... ~ Bren <3
