**BREAKING NEWS** Shelling of UN-run school in Gaza by Israel “totally unacceptable & indefensible” – USA
America, the white house have made a statement AGAINST Israel, they say the bombing of UN School was “totally unacceptable & indefensible” This is a “WOW” Moment, the USA saying Israel is wrong! The US has said that civilian casualties in Gaza are “too high”, and called on Israel to do more to protect civilian life. “The Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards… for protecting civilian life,” a Pentagon spokesman said. The UN has also criticised Israel over the worsening situation in Gaza, saying people there are “facing a precipice”. Some 425,000 Palestinians have been displaced by fighting, the UN says. But lets not pretend here, the USA is calling Israel wrong here but is and will sell more war to Israel, this is the Irony!
Meanwhile a senior Israeli official told the BBC that the army had “neutralised” 70 to 80% of Hamas’ offensive tunnel network. Israel says it will not stop its operation in Gaza until all the tunnels – which militants use to infiltrate Israeli territory – have been destroyed. Since Israel began its offensive in Gaza on 8 July, 1,400 Palestinians have been killed, most of them civilians, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. It said 173 people had been killed within the past 24 hours. Some 58 Israelis have been killed, 56 soldiers and two civilians. A Thai worker in Israel has also died.
A story I have been following on AceNews, http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Ebola I think it’s fair to say forget Israel, Palestine, Russia, ISIS, Ukraine, any conflict or war because of how this story has developed over night. The main Dr who was helping contain this has died, http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/top-ebola-doctor-has-contracted-the-ebola-virus/ who died, and overnight we were told this is “Out of Control” This is the worst outbreak of Ebola, this is the 1st time it has broken one border, it has broken through several, rumours of a woman in China, if true and she has passed it on, China is 24% of the planet. Over night news http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/31/ebola-epidemic-out-of-control-now-a-world-threat-90-mortality-rate-please-read-and-learn/
Know the disease, learn about this disease that kills 90% of people who get it, one of, if not the worst micro-bug on Earth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebola_virus_disease
German hospital has agreed to treat Ebola patients amid widespread fears of a possible outbreak of the deadly disease in Europe. Over 670 people have already been killed by the disease in West Africa with doctors struggling to control the epidemic. A German hospital in Hamburg agreed to accept patients following a request from the World Health Organization (WHO), Deutsche Welle reports. Doctors assure that the utmost precautions will be taken to make sure the disease does not spread during treatment. The patients will be kept in an isolation ward behind several airlocks, and doctors and nurses will wear body suits with their own oxygen supplies that will be burned every three hours. German authorities were expecting the arrival of Sheik Umar Khan, an Ebola expert who caught the disease while treating patients in Sierra Leone, but he died before he could be transported. “We were actually anticipating the patient’s arrival over the weekend,” Dr. Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit, head of the viral diagnostic unit at Hamburg’s Bernhard-Nocht-Institute, told German public broadcaster NDR.
This latest outbreak of Ebola originated in Guinea in February and quickly spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria where the first case was reported last week. The disease has already claimed over 650 lives and has prompted authorities in Europe to take measures to prevent its spread. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond will chair a meeting of the Cabinet Office Briefing Room (COBRA) on Wednesday to discuss the government’s reaction to the outbreak of the deadly disease. On Monday, a man was tested for the virus at a Birmingham Airport following a flight from Nigeria via Paris. The Department of Health later confirmed that the tests were negative and said the UK authorities were prepared to deal with the threat of Ebola. “Protecting the public from infectious diseases is a priority and we lead the world in this field. We are well prepared to identify and deal with any potential cases of Ebola,” a Department of Health official told reporters.
In Hong Kong, a woman has been hospitalized with a suspected case of Ebola. According to reports from China Daily, the woman had recently returned home from a trip to Africa. In an effort to confine the spread of the disease, the International Civil Aviation Organization will consult with the World Health Organization. “Until now [the virus] had not impacted commercial aviation, but now we’re affected,” WHO Secretary-General Raymond Benjamin told the media, referencing the death of a 40-year-old man who died of Ebola after traveling on Togo-based airline ASKY from Liberia to Nigeria via the Togolese capital of Lome. “We will have to act quickly,” Benjamin said. “We will consult with the WHO to see what types of measures should be put in place.” The Ebola virus spreads through direct contact of bodily fluids and is deadly in up to 90 percent of cases. Symptoms include fever, vomiting and internal bleeding.
The hacktivist group Anonymous is angry at Israel, and not just for launching deadly airstrikes on Gaza. Members say the Israeli government “crossed a line in the sand” when it threatened to sever internet and other telecommunications in Gaza. In a press statement published online, Anonymous issued a warning to the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and the Israeli government, ordering them to not shut down the internet in the occupied territories and to cease and desist from their “terror upon the innocent people of Palestine.” In a tweet, the collective condemned Israel, saying it has broken 65 UN resolutions with no consequences. It then compared the situation to Iraq, which was “invaded, bombed, and destroyed” for breaking two resolutions.
Anonymous’ online statement warned the Israeli government: “Like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will not survive it unscathed.” The statement then turned into a message of support for the people of Gaza saying that “We will do everything in our power to hinder the evil forces of the IDF arrayed against you.” “Know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight. We will use all our resources to make certain you stay connected to the internet and remain able to transmit your experiences to the world,” the statement said. And it seems their words are being matched with actions.
Anonymous has put together a “Gaza Care Package,” which contains instructions in Arabic and English to assist Palestinians in the event that the Israeli government threatens their internet connection. The package also includes information on evading IDF surveillance, along with first aid information. The collective encouraged Palestinians to download and share the package with others. Those behind the project have vowed to expand and improve the document in coming days.
“No matter how dark it may seem, no matter how alone and abandoned you may feel – know that tens of thousands of us in Anonymous are with you and working tirelessly around the clock to bring you every aid and assistance that we can,” the statement said. Members are taking a more direct approach too, by contacting Israeli forces directly. A tweet from an Anonymous account to an IDF spokesperson warned, “It would be wise of you to expect us.” Anonymous has already hacked a number of Israeli websites, including advocate-israel.com. Visitors to the page see a scrolling banner which says the site was hacked by the “MexicanH Team.” A statement on the webpage says, “Stop bombing Gaza. Millions of Israelis and Palestinians are lying awake, exposed and terrified.”
In all the articles and blogs and Audio blogs I have done, this article here is the hardest to take. I blogged a few weeks ago about people in Israel having ‘Bombing Parties’
Here’s what’s going on in Israel amongst the people. A racist chant has emerged amongst right wing nationalists, mocking the deaths of Gazan civilians… specifically children. The chant has lines like: ‘Tomorrow there’s no school in Gaza, they don’t have any children left.’” Sounds like they support “self-defence” IDF style. The video below shows a racist Israeli mob singing these lyrics celebrating the deaths of Gaza’s children. The tune follows typical soccer fan chants, but the lyrics are much more disturbing and cold-hearted: “In Gaza there’s no studying, No children are left there, Olé, olé, olé-olé-olé.”
The words of the repulsive song have been translated to English
Tibi – Ahmed Tibi
I wanted you to know
The next kid to be hurt will be your kid
I hate Tibi
I hate Tibi the terrorist.
Tibi – is dead!
Tibi – is dead!
Tibi – is dead!
Tibi is a terrorist.
Tibi is a terrorist.
Tibi is a terrorist.
They’ll take their papers away.
They’ll take their papers away.
They’ll take their papers away.
Olé, olé, olé-olé-olé
In Gaza there’s no studying
No children are left there,
Olé, olé, olé-olé-olé,
[Three lines, not entirely clear]
Who is getting nervous, I hear?
Zoabi, this here is the Land of Israel
This here is the Land of Israel, Zoabi
This here is the Land of the Jews
I hate you, I do, Zoabi
I hate all the Arabs.
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard
About time, Israel are bombing United Nations buildings and camps. United Nations workers have died. More Children doed in this latest blowing up of a School, a UN run School. Israel nor it’s fanatical followers can defend this recent action, not one bit!
(Reuters) – After another deadly attack on a U.N. school in Gaza sheltering Palestinians from fighting between Israel and Hamas militants, the United Nations declared “enough is enough” on Wednesday and asked – when civilians are warned to leave, where do they go? With 1.8 million people living in a Mediterranean enclave he described as the size of Detroit and Philadelphia, a disheartened U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said there was nowhere for people to flee the conflict that has killed some 1,200 Palestinians. “This is a moment where you really have to say ‘enough is enough’ and you have to search for the right words to convince those who have the power to stop this,” Eliasson told reporters at the United Nations.
Israel says it regularly warns residents by phone calls, text messages, leaflets and dud missiles launched on their roofs to warn them in advance of attacks. But Eliasson asked: “Where do they go? There’s very few places to go in Gaza.” At least 16 people were killed and some 100 wounded when an Israeli artillery struck a U.N. school at dawn on Wednesday in Gaza’s biggest refugee camp, Eliasson said. The United Nations is protecting more than 200,000 people at its facilities. Speaking in Costa Rica earlier on Wednesday, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attack as outrageous and unjustifiable. “It demands accountability and justice,” he said. “Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children.” He said the precise location of the school had been communicated to Israeli military authorities 17 times, most recently on Tuesday night just hours before the attack.
Senior U.N. aid official John Ging told reporters in New York this was the fifth U.N. school sheltering civilians that had been struck during the 23-day conflict. At least 15 people were killed on Thursday when another U.N. school was struck. “These locations are not safe. Nowhere is safe,” Ging said. “They are being told flee areas, get out of areas, but to where? Where should they go? “If this were a conflict elsewhere in the world they would at least have the option of crossing borders and seeking sanctuary in neighboring countries. They don’t have that option,” Ging said. The Gaza Strip borders Israel and Egypt. Three caches of rockets have also been found in vacant U.N. Relief and Works Agency schools during the conflict, prompting Ban to warn last week that those responsible were “turning schools into potential military targets.”
A story I have been on since day one http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Ebola now, sadly, it is out of control, what we are being told her is they know it has broken out of Africa for the 1st time EVER. I have been keeping up on what is, the worst story I am writing about just now, the debate over Israel, Russia and all the other issues might become totally irellavant very soon. Video below and Links at the bottom of the page
Global medical charity Doctors Without Borders has given warning that the Ebola crisis in West Africa is “unprecedented, absolutely out of control”, as states across the world took steps to prevent its spread. Bart Janssens, the charity’s director of operations, warned there was no overarching vision of how to tackle the outbreak, in an interview with Belgium’s La Libre Belgique newspaper. “This epidemic … can only get worse, because it is still spreading, above all in Liberia and Sierra Leone, in some very important hotspots,” Janssens said. “We are extremely worried by the turn of events, particularly in these two countries where there is a lack of visibility on the epidemic. If the situation does not improve fairly quickly, there is a real risk of new countries being affected. “That is certainly not ruled out, but it is difficult to predict, because we have never known such an epidemic.” More than 670 people have died of Ebola in the outbreak, the largest on record since the disease was detected in the 1970s. Meanwhile, the International Civil Aviation Organisation has met global health officials to discuss measures to stop the disease from crossing borders. The pan-African airline ASKY suspended all flights to and from the capitals of Liberia and Sierra Leone. The EU allocated an extra $2.7m to fight the outbreak, bringing total funding to $5.2m. “The level of contamination on the ground is extremely worrying and we need to scale up our action before many more lives are lost,” said the EU’s humanitarian aid commissioner, Kristalina Georgieva. The bloc has deployed experts on the ground to help victims and try to limit contagion.
The warnings came as Liberia ordered the closure of all schools across the country and the quarantine of a number of communities in a bid to halt the outbreak. Security forces have been ordered to enforce the new measures, part of a new action plan that included placing all non-essential government workers on 30-day compulsory leave. In Nigeria, health authorities announced they were trying to trace more than 30,000 people who could be at risk of contracting Ebola after Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian, died from the disease in Lagos on Friday. Sunday Omilabu, a professor at Lagos University Teaching Hospital, said: “We’ve been making contacts. As I’m talking, our teams are in the facility, where they’ve trained the staff, and then they (are) now asking questions about those that were closely in contact with the patient. “We’re actually looking at contacting over 30,000 people in this very scenario. Because any and everybody that has contacted this person is going to be treated as a suspect,” said Yewande Adeshina, a public health adviser.
I write and write about this, every other day I post new videos with my thoughts on what Israel does to Gaza. I try not to share items from other media, sometimes I do but mix it up and make it my own. Have I cried over this? Yeah, many times. When you see an image like the one above, or worse, there is an automatic human response that triggers pain, painful tears. If you as a human being don’t feel this, you have your head in the sand and you care not a jot, not a bit about our World. You are evil, self serving people, you follow religions and books blindly in the same way you follow Israel, an Israel who are becoming less and less liked. Countries are stopping travel to Israel all over. This video I spotted on a forum, it is a UN observer who had JUST survived as a witness of genocide at a supermarket in Gaza! A UN Speaker couldn’t go on to speak about Israeli genocide. He saw a lot of bodies only a few hours before and wanted to make a statement about the misery and the Israeli Terror! He couldn’t because he is like others, like me, like you who cares, he cried for Humanity. America and the UK you both have blood on your hands for helping Israel get weapons to do this.
This video is 58 seconds long and very upsetting, now you know why he is crying, what he just seen

Crucial qualifying game for the UEFA Champions League, from August onwards
As I said, it seems American’s are more Pro-Israel than ANY other nation on Earth, including Israel itself! http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/why-are-americans-more-pro-israel-than-any-other-nation/ I ask why American’s support Israel, I ask why people do blindly. Many have a go at me and others for telling the TRUTH! about the Genocide Israel is doing to the Palestinians and when I get a hard time I simply ask questions. I either get abused then blocked or blocked. I will tell you why this is, BECAUSE NOT ONE AMERICAN CAN DEFEND ISRAEL NOR DEBATE ABOUT WHY THEY SIDE WITH ISRAEL! They do it blindly, not all Americans, the Pro-Israel people. Now look what the USA Congress are doing. I have no words for you America. I know many demonstrate against Israel in America, but why all this financial support and blind support?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats and Republicans in Congress vowed urgent support Tuesday for a $225 million missile defense package for Israel, boosting the likelihood that legislation will clear Congress before lawmakers begin a monthlong vacation at week’s end. “Let’s stop playing games,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., calling the assistance a necessity for the “life-or-death struggle Israel faces.” Graham and other supporters made their comments as Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment yet in the four-week war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. At least 1,200 Palestinians have been killed, including more than 100 Tuesday, according to Palestinian health officials. Israel has reported more than 50 soldiers and three civilians killed.
Amid a daily barrage of Palestinian rocket fire, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system has been credited with knocking hundreds of missiles out of the sky. While the Obama administration has pressed for a cease-fire, it also has backed Israel’s desire to replenish its missile defense stockpiles. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel extended Israel’s request to Congress last week. Despite Graham’s admonition, neither Republicans who control the House nor Democrats who command a Senate majority have yet to announce plans for a vote on a stand-alone bill on the issue.
In the House, majority Republicans unveiled a measure to cope with an influx of younger immigrants reaching the United States illegally from Central America, and said funds for Israel would be handled in a separate bill that has yet to be made public. At the White House, press secretary Josh Earnest expressed disappointment at the lack of funding for Israel in the House measure. In the Senate, Democrats have combined money for Israel, border security and wildfire assistance into one measure. But Republicans oppose it because of a disagreement over provisions relating to the immigrants now flooding into the country from the south. Despite the apparent deadlock, there were signs of willingness to compromise.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was prepared to consider a stand-alone bill providing money for Israel. Across the Capitol, numerous Republican aides said the House would likely pass any legislation the Senate approves on the subject. Despite the potential for compromise on missile defense, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell implicitly criticized the Obama administration for efforts to arrange a ceasefire he said would be imposed on Israel and reward Hamas for a “campaign of terror.” “I support any effort which brings this campaign to an end in a manner that increases Israel’s security,” McConnell said Tuesday. “That means that Hamas cannot be left with a large stockpile of missiles and rockets, cannot be left with infiltration tunnels — they must be destroyed. Hamas cannot be allowed to aggressively rest, refit and build up weapons stockpiles.”
