So here's a collection of what has been happening lately concerning Gaza.

This youtube comment basically summed up what has happened so far,


Hamas adhered to the ceasefire. Israel continued killing Palestinian children and actually carried out operations inside Gaza. Yes a TINY number of rockets were fired out of Gaza in response by OTHER organizations. Hamas still adhered to the ceasefire. It was Israels provocative murder of the head of Hamas' military wing which dragged Hamas into this.


Comment by Al Dabat

But let's go a more in depth.

This is how these recent events began,




- TIMELINE: ISRAEL'S LATEST ESCALATION IN GAZA -


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8

Following a two-week lull in violence, Israeli soldiers invade Gaza. In the resulting exchange of gunfire with Palestinian fighters,
a 12-year-old boy is killed by an Israeli bullet while he plays soccer.

Shortly afterwards, Palestinian fighters blow up a tunnel along the Gaza-Israel frontier, injuring one Israeli soldier.



SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10

An anti-tank missile fired by Palestinian fighters wounds four Israeli soldiers driving in a jeep along the Israel-Gaza boundary.

An Israeli artillery shell lands in a soccer field in Gaza killing two children, aged 16 and 17. Later, an Israeli tank
fires a shell at a tent where mourners are gathered for a funeral, killing two more civilians, and wounding more than two dozen others.



SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11

One Palestinian civilian is killed and dozens more wounded in Israeli attacks. Four Israeli civilians are also injured as a result of projectiles launched from Gaza, according to the Israeli government.

During an Israeli government cabinet meeting, Transportation Minister
Yisrael Katz urges the government to "cut off the head of the snake... take out the leadership of Hamas in Gaza." He also calls for a cutting off of water, food, electricity, and fuel shipments to Gaza's 1.7 million people.



MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12

Palestinian militant factions
agree to a truce if Israel ends its attacks.



WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14


Israel breaks two days of calm by assassinating Ahmed Jabari, the head of Hamas' military wing. According to reports, at least eight other Palestinians are killed in Israeli attacks, including at least two children. Palestinian militant groups vow to respond.


A fact-sheet by the IMEU

Israel broke an informal ceasefire on Wednesday by assassinating Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari in an air strike. The Israeli peace activist Gershon Baskin, who helped mediate talks between Israel and Hamas in the deal to release Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, has revealed Jabari was assassinated just hours after he received the draft of a permanent truce agreement with Israel, which included mechanisms for maintaining the ceasefire.


From Democracynow.org

An Israeli minister has called for the army to bomb Gaza until the population flees en masse into Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, and for water and electricity supplies to be cut, a clear case of incitement to war crimes.
Israel Katz, Israel’s transport minister, was quoted on the Orthodox website B’Hadrei Haredim on 11 November:


Israel must act in Gaza with a very clear policy. The leadership of the Hamas, which is responsible for all the attacks and shooting, must be eliminated. Beyond that, we must detach from Gaza in a civilian manner – electricity, water, food, and fuel – and transition into a policy of deterrence, just like in Southern Lebanon.”
Why don’t they shoot at us from Southern Lebanon and do from Gaza? Because there is no clear boundary with Gaza. Because the civilian link with Gaza is unreasonable. Gaza should be considered a border, and every time we are hurt,hurt back [retaliate]. When I see Palestinian citizens escaping into Sinai, the way Lebanese citizens escape toward Beirut when there is a round of fire against Israel – we will then know that the deterrence has been achieved.”

Guess who else was supporting the Palestinians though?

Anonymous!

with Operation Israel, OPIsrael for short.


Yesterday, the Israeli Defense Force announced on Twitter it would begin military operations on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. Though social media has long been used as a tool of dissent that can help foment revolution, declaring war on Twitter is a first, and it’s a move that raises serious questions about war and propaganda in the age of the internet. Now Anonymous, the loose collective of hacktivists, has set its sights on the IDF, launching #OPIsrael in response to the country’s decision to shut down internet service in Gaza.
According to a press release published to Anonpaste.me:
When the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever all Internet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza they crossed a line in the sand. As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack learned the hard way – we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch. To the IDF and government of Israel we issue you this warning only once. Do NOT shut down the Internet into the “Occupied Territories”, and cease and desist from your terror upon the innocent people of Palestine or you will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous. And like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will NOT survive it unscathed.

And to keep up with what has been happening in Gaza, I obviously did not watch mainstream media, I was watching the Ustream By Harry Fear, documentary maker and an activist who is in Gaza in the middle of all this.
His Ustreams are basically 24/7, when he isn't there he leaves the audio on, so you can hear what's happening in Gaza. At the moment I'm listening to audio feed and it horrifying! The shelling of the city, the air-forces roaming around.

Meanwhile on the twitter-sphere, this was happening:

And this also happened along the way.

The IDF Blog now has atrocious gamification badges with points and rewards for sharing the content to social media. For example, if you visit the site 10 times, you get the "Consistent" badge. If you search the blog multiple times, you're promoted to "Research Officer." Yes, Israel has gamified war. This is absolutely horrendous.

This game has existed since July. But it was not displayed yesterday, when the campaign began. Now that it's back, the world noticed. Promoting it on the front page during this military campaign is beyond crass.
An IDF spokesperson tells ReadWrite that "over the past two days the blog has experienced technical difficulties due to high traffic, and 'IDF Ranks' was temporarily taken down to make necessary adjustments to our systems. In no way is 'IDF Ranks' meant to gamify Operation Pillar of Defense or any military actions during the operation."



I will leave you with this Cross-Talk, and may Allah keep our brothers and sister in Gaza safe tonight.

Current mood:
More blatant aggression and abuse towards the palestinian people from the state of Israel ... but I question if Hamas and other significant figures in the occupied areas truly have their people's best interests at heart because this cycle of titfortat/opening gates of h-ell inevitably leaves the palestinian people far far worse off. Many of these hamas ministers would lose their positions of power and all the perks that go along with it if true peace was ever achieved.
