Israel: "Yes, we used white phosphorus bombs."


The well known fascistic method of "I deny the crime" from the side it happened from, becomes a "single incident" when an event comes in public. Meanwhile the so called "only democratic state in middle east" keeps on the daily genocide against the Palestinians of Gaza.

We talk about the M825A1 bombs, thing that means the (U.S. constructed) white phosphorus bombs, a weapon which is prohibited by the international laws. The use of this weapon is equal with war crimes and it was used during the last year's israelian attack against Gaza.


Last year, the spokesman of the israelian army used to state to the british "Times" newspaper:


"The M825A1 bombs are empty, they don't have explosives inside, not even white phosphorus. There is also nothing in the outside. We throw them, so we can mark the target before we send the real bombs... we don't want to kill people with these bombs."


"We use what is also used by the other armies and we do not use any weapon that is illegal by the International Laws."


Despite these statements, british experts published on "Jane's" newspaper they don't have any doubt that M825A1 bombs contain white phosphorus.


Today, one year later and after thousands of Palestinians lost parts of their bodies and their lives by the certain weapon, the israelians answer to the Goldstone Report which blames Israel for war crimes during the last year's 22 days attack against Gaza, so they accept the use of the certain weapon and also... punish two militants as responsibles for the war crimes.


So, the last year's genocide against the citizens of Gaza is a single incident, for which are responsible certain persons and the israelian justice functions perfectly (as they state)...




Israeli arrests aimed at quashing popular resistance continue: On 28th January at 1:45 in Bil'in's village, Mohammed Khatib, his wife Lamia and their four children waken up by Israeli soldiers storming their house, which was surrounded by a large military force.
