Revisiting Israel's Terror War on Gaza - by Stephen Lendman

Despite no legitimate provocation, Israel began terror bombing Gaza on December 27, 2008. Invasion followed, attacking innocent civilian men, women and children for over three weeks, using missiles, bombs, shells, and illegal weapons against defenseless people. Mass slaughter and destruction ensued.

Brazen crimes of war and against humanity were committed. No culpable officials were held responsible. Security Council no-fly zone protection wasn't ordered.  International community leaders approved or were silent. Washington was complicit by supplying Israel with weapons, munitions, and encouragement. Obama acts the same as Bush, waging a quartet of lawless wars and using proxies in others. 

Operation Cast Lead remains one of history's greatest crimes. Yet Israel was green-lighted to wage it with impunity, what it's done numerous times in its history, besides terrorizing Palestinians by:

-- illegal military occupation;

-- collective punishment and intimidation;

-- air and ground attacks;

-- isolating Gaza illegally under siege;

-- intermittently bombing and shooting its residents, including noncombatant farmers, fishermen and children;

-- regular residential neighborhood incursions;

-- bulldozing homes;

-- dispossessing residents;

-- land seizures;

-- arbitrary arrests;

-- torture as official policy, including against women and children;

-- targeted assassinations;
