Israel Destroys Entire Gaza Neighborhood In An Hour

July 29th, 2014

An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.

Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.

After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.

Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.

Canadians for Palestine! ›

lespritmodestee:

My friend John and I recently decided that we wanted to start writing to our politicians to get them to see that we, as Canadians, do not condone Prime Minister Harper’s recent comments regarding Gaza. As Linda McQuaig put it:

"Certain minimal standards are expected of a…

     “We’re not dating, but we’ve come to trust each other in such a way that when people look at us they think, ‘Oh, they’re so close. They must be a couple.’ But an intimate relationship doesn’t have to be sexual—he turns me on intellectually and we wholeheartedly enjoy each other’s company. We feel that we’re each other’s surrogate true loves.”

Anonymous asked: Sikhs are not political people. You "Sikhs" that engage in the dirt of politics marr our image.

kaagazkalam:

Hooooooold up. Hun, you seem in need of a little history lesson.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji: Challenged the caste system, and openly criticized Brahminical elitism; challenged the ban on music in Baghdad while OPENLY doing kirtan in a city square; confronted the first Mughal emperor, Babur, for the war crimes he committed, and as a result Guru Sahib was thrown in jail: POLITICS.

Guru Angad Dev Ji: Denounced artocities committed by upper class intellectuals, created a movement and created a new alphabet so EVERYONE would be able to read and write: POLITICS.

Guru Amar Das Ji: In essence, the most feminist religious leader known to the world; banned the practice of widow-burning (Sati), and other cultural traditions that decreased the status of women to a mere piece of property: POLITICS.

Guru Ram Das Ji: Created a new set of vows to be read at Sikh weddings to distinguish the Anand Karaj from other acts of union, contributing to the autonomy of the faith: POLITICS.

Guru Arjan Dev Ji: Openly condemned Akbar’s son Prince Salim (later to become Jahangir) and openly advocated for Prince Khusrau to become the next emperor of the Mughal Empire due to his equity and righteousness, he faced Emperor Jahangir due to this and was executed, becoming the first martyr in our Panth: POLITICS.

Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji: Established the concept of the Saint Soldier, to make sure Sikhs are trained in diplomacy and combat as well as being devout in worship and lifestyle; the Akaal Takht, the centre of Sikh decision-making is built in the complex of Sikhi’s spiritual heart, Sri Harimandir Sahib (later to become known as the Golden Temple): POLITICS.

Guru Har Rai Ji: Used Sikh battalion to protect Shah Jahan’s son, Prince Dara Shikoh, and help him escape from the attacks of his own brother, the new Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb; gave succession of Guruship to his younger son, due to older son Ram Rai’s ill intent to mislead the community: POLITICS.

Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji: Showed people that age does not matter, constantly proved ageist biases against the Child Guru as false: POLITICS.

Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji: Heard the plight of Brahmins being persecuted under the hand of Aurangzeb; travelled to Delhi to confront the Emperor, and in doing so was publicly caged, forced to witness the torture, burning, sawing, and boiling of his companions, until he himself was publicly beheaded for the sake of a community other than his own: POLITICS.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji: Further perpetuated the concept of the Sant Sipahi (Saint Soldier), and ran the fort city of Anandpur as an independant self-sufficient city-state of the Sikhs; established a nationhood within the faith with the revelation of the Khalsa on the Vaisakhi of 1699; waged war against the oppression of Aurangzeb; engaged Aurangzeb in diplomacy as he wrote his most famous work, the Zafarnamah; declared 52 commandments before he passed on, one of them being STUDYING AND ENGAGING IN POLITICS: POLITICS.

Politics has been a part of Sikhi from day one, and anyone who says anything contrary to that needs to re-examin their knowledge of their deen. 

Sikhs are NOT pacificists. We are activists against oppression, no matter which community is being oppressed (please keep Gaza in your ardaases). It is silence that marrs our image, not activism.
