Israel using flechette shells in Gaza as accusations of War crimes gather pace

Israel using flechette shells in Gaza

Israel using flechette shells in Gaza

This earlier today explained a little here. http://shaunynews.com/2014/07/23/breaking-news-un-chief-israel-could-be-guilty-of-war-crimes/ And may explain the many deaths of young children. I ask simply, is this a War? no, this isn’t a war, this is genocide by Israel. I hope the UN charge them accordingly. My worry is all the Pro-Israel people tell me “Israel will Nuke you” Not surprising from a people of War, hate and crime.

Palestinian human rights group accuses Israel military of using shells that spray out thousands of tiny and potentially lethal darts. The Israeli military is using flechette shells, which spray out thousands of tiny and potentially lethal metal darts, in its military operation in Gaza. Six flechette shells were fired towards the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, on 17 July, according to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights. Nahla Khalil Najjar, 37, suffered injuries to her chest, it said. PCHR provided a picture of flechettes taken by a fieldworker last week. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) did not deny using the shells in the conflict. “As a rule, the IDF only employs weapons that have been determined lawful under international law, and in a manner which fully conforms with the laws of armed conflict,” a spokesperson said in response to a request for specific comment on the deployment of flechettes. B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organisation, describes a flechette shell as “an anti-personnel weapon that is generally fired from a tank. The shell explodes in the air and releases thousands of metal darts 37.5mm in length, which disperse in a conical arch 300 metres long and about 90 metres wide”.

The munitions are not prohibited under international humanitarian law, but according to B’Tselem, “other rules of humanitarian law render their use in the Gaza Strip illegal. One of the most fundamental principles is the obligation to distinguish between those who are involved and those who are not involved in the fighting, and to avoid to the extent possible injury to those who are not involved. Deriving from this principle is the prohibition of the use of an imprecise weapon which is likely to result in civilian injuries.”

The legality of flechette munitions was upheld by the Israeli supreme court in 2002, and according to an Israeli military source, they are particularly effective against enemy fighters operating in areas covered by vegetation. The source said a number of armies around the world deploy flechette shells, and that they were intended solely for use against legitimate military targets in accordance with international law. The IDF has deployed flechette shells in Gaza and Lebanon before. B’Tselem has documented the deaths of nine Palestinians  in Gaza from flechettes in 2001 and 2002. Flechettes have also killed and wounded dozens of civilians, including women and children, in conflicts between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon. The Israeli military deployed artillery shells containing white phosphorous in densely populated areas of Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in 2008 and 2009, causing scores of deaths and extensive burns. It initially issued a categorical denial of reports of the use of white phosphorous, but later admitted it, saying the weapon was only used to create smokescreens. Human Rights Watch said its use of the munitions in Operation Cast Lead was indiscriminate and evidence of war crimes . In response to a legal challenge, the IDF said last year it would “avoid the use in built-up areas of artillery shells containing white phosphorus, with two narrow exceptions.” The exceptions were not disclosed .

Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth games opening ceremony tonight – At the home of Celtic FC

Will be strange tonight watching the opening ceremony of the 2014 commonwealth games at my teams stadium. It will packed to the rafters, 62,000+ there tonight. Due to this Celtic FC are having to play important games in Edinburgh at Murryfield Stadium, the home of Scottish Rugby. http://thecelticnetwork.com/2014/07/22/celtic-rout-kr-reykjavik-await-next-opponents-goals-video/

Sir Chris Hoy says Glasgow will deliver “the biggest and best Commonwealth Games we’ve ever seen”, ahead of Wednesday’s opening ceremony. About 4,500 athletes from 71 nations will take part in the 20th edition of the Games, which run until 3 August.

“It’s going to be spectacular,” said Scotland’s six-time Olympic and double Commonwealth champion.
Swimmer Michael Jamieson, a big Scots medal hope, added: “You can already see there’s a buzz around the city.”
The 25-year-old silver medallist from the 2012 Olympics, who is chasing 200m breaststroke gold on the opening day of action on Thursday, said: “It’s known as the friendly Games for a reason. It just has such a great feel about it.” The reputation of the Commonwealth Games was damaged by the 2010 Games in Delhi, which were plagued by poor ticket sales and problems with venues and accommodation. Organisers were forced to give away thousands of free tickets after seats remained unsold, but that still could not prevent images of half-empty venues being beamed around the world, but Hoy is confident there will be no repeat in Glasgow.

“We’ve been ready for the last year and a half,” added the former track cyclist, who retired in 2013. “Everyone’s desperate to get started.”
Commonwealth Games Scotland chairman Michael Cavanagh added: “There’s an enormous buzz in Glasgow and that’s just going to continue. “It’s going to be absolutely fantastic and the opening ceremony will be extraordinary and get us off to a terrific start.” Glasgow began preparing for the Games, which features 18 sports across 11 days of competition, in 2007, when it beat Nigeria’s capital Abuja in the vote to stage the event. Commonwealth Games-related contracts worth £401m have been awarded, Glasgow City Council has revealed, while there were 2.3m requests for tickets when the first one million went on sale last year. “The Games will be delivered, to the relief of us all, within budget,” said Scottish first minister Alex Salmond.

*Breaking News* UN Chief: ‘Israel Could Be Guilty Of War Crimes’

Smoke rises during what was said to be heavy Israeli shelling over Gaza

Smoke rises during what was said to be heavy Israeli shelling over Gaza

The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights says there is a “strong possibility” Israel is violating international law in Gaza.

Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Navanethem Pillay also condemned the indiscriminate firing of rockets and mortars by Hamas into Israel.

Ms Pillay said Israel’s punitive house demolitions and killing of Palestinians raised serious concerns of excessive use of force by the Jewish state.

Scottish independence: Barack Obama warns Scots ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ as he weighs into referendum debate *SURE*

Barack Obama welcomes Douglas Alexander and Ed Miliband to the White House

Barack Obama welcomes Douglas Alexander and Ed Miliband to the White House

THE US president, who rocked the independence debate last month, gave a further explanation of why he believes Scotland should continue to work together with England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This is from one of the daily rags this morning. And this coming from a man who has destroyed his own country. He says “If it ain’t broken don’t fix it” Well Mr Obama, you have no idea who hard life is for the people of the UK. The people of Scotland have a massive chance to leave a Union that isn’t working for Scotland any more. Money taken from Disabled, Pensioners, bedroom tax but no Mansion tax. Austerity is killing the UK. Scotland can vote to free ourselves. We can be 100% self serving. We can look after our country on our own. I wonder who asked him to say this. For me any words from this man make it more likely people will vote yes. Doings his criminal friends a favour. Scotland, don’t fall for this crap.

BARACK Obama has set out his reasons for wanting Scotland to stay in the UK, saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The US president rocked the independence debate last month by making it clear that he hopes Scots vote No. In a bombshell referendum intervention, Obama said the UK should remain united and strong. And now he has given a further explanation of why he believes Scotland should continue to work together with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Asked about the referendum by Paisley and Renfrewshire South MP Douglas Alexander, he said: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Alexander revealed the exchange in an article for today’s Daily Record. The Shadow Foreign Secretary met Obama in Washington on Monday with Labour leader Ed Miliband. During the 30-minute meeting in the White House, the group also discussed the crises in Ukraine and Gaza. But Alexander said he was keen to hear more of the president’s views on the referendum. He added: “Of course he understands that the referendum on September 18 is a choice for us as Scots.

“But as he spoke, it became clear that he believes we really are better together, as part of the UK family. As a hugely admired progressive president Obama knows and understands the modern world and its challenges. “Perhaps more than any other modern political leader, Barack Obama embodies the idea that diversity is a strength. “Nationalism is not his creed.” Obama first spoke out on Scottish independence when he was asked for his thoughts on September’s vote at a press conference with David Cameron at the G7 summit in Brussels. With the Union Flag behind him, he told reporters that, from the outside, the UK appeared to have “worked pretty well”.

He said: “There’s a referendum process in place and it’s up to the people of Scotland.” But he added: “I would say that the United Kingdom has been an extraordinary partner to us. “From the outside at least, it looks like things have worked pretty well. “And, you know, we obviously have a deep interest in making sure that one of the closest allies that we will ever have remains strong, robust, united and an effective partner. “But ultimately, these are decisions that’ll be made by the folks there.” Observers were stunned that Obama publicly backed a No vote when the US is officially neutral.

For all you Pro-Israeli people who say “Hamas hide behind Children”

BtM3SY-CcAAfooT

Simply I say, find a new damn excuse for what Israel are doing. To try and defend Israel is evil, you are all haters. But do we expect less? No we don’t, because to be evil is to support Evil. Too many people blindly and stupidly defend EVERY action Israel has. I am sick to the back teeth of this outrageously stupid excuse to back Israel in what is keeping people land locked for so long and when they shoot back, Israel does this.

So please, Pro-Israel idiots, educate yourself on Humanity, Humility and love, because none of you have any. There is no damn excuse for what Israel is doing. The sooner people realise this is as evil as evil can get the better. But sadly with these idiots reason isn’t a choice, a change of heart is dignity stripping for them. To immoral to even say “Well maybe I was wrong” You all see what you want to see. So here is the truth. You don’t even know how to be human any more, you are a people who I wouldn’t like to know. I have had Pro Idiots tell me in their dozens that Israel will Nuke everyone, Israel won’t be defeated. Well, when it comes to reality and humanity,  guess what? Israel are already beaten, and so are you for making awful, mindless, stupid, idiotic, uneducated excuses like this one above. So lets have some facts shall we?

Evil at work, and you are part of it, FACT!

Why are American more Pro-Israel than any other nation?

AmericaIsrael

Over the last few weeks I have done a few articles here and on AceNews about Israel and how they are acting like Nazi Germany. How the Media reports an IDF Soldier had a shot up knee but refuse to show us the truth about kids being killed.

I noticed also that almost EVERY angry Pro-Israeli lived in America. How is this? Why is this? Does this prove my point American people are controlled by a willing media and not clever enough to think for themselves.

I also noticed many of the Pro-Israeli people from the USA were deeply religious, but all I seen was hate. So this puzzled me greatly. How can someone who loves God be so hateful and deny the truth? I showed a LOT of proof about what Israel are doing yet I get hate emails abused on WordPress and Twitter. I can handle it, these are just dumb people hating for the sake of it and refuse to admit Israel are wrong out of a lack of humility, I feel real sorry for some of these people. Haters going to hate, I truly feel sorry for you angry pro-Israel people, you are hate, you are a reason why hate exists

America thinks it is the most important nation on Earth when in-fact (Hey you might learn something here USA) India is the World’s biggest democracy. How can the USA and it’s tiny 4.5% of humanity be so important. Over here in Europe America we shake our heads at you. We don’t understand you.

Am I speaking about the American people or the American Government? Well I guess I am talking about both. Both are as stupid as the other

http://shaunynews.com/?s=Israel&submit=Search All the articles I have done on Israel and hate. I just don’t understand why more Americans love Israel than even the people in Israel where a lot of them hate their government. Yet America as a political power and it’s people are too damn stupid to know the truth if it came and bit them in the ass.

I of course do not mean everyone, but America, your people, the Israel lovers make the World think your whole Country is Pro-Israel. Of course this is not true. There were a TON of demonstrations over the weekend in America against Israel and asking the World to help Palestine

America angered as the UK and France do arms deals with Russia

Putin and Dave, pals in War!

Putin and Dave, pals in War!

For anyone needing reminded in this War an Hate filled World we live in that War is the new age of money making only need must read this below. As always do your own research. France and the UK are doing deals with America’s devil and they don’t like it. This tells me, as I have said many times that the World see’s American on it’s knees financially and are dealing with other countries. America only has it’s self to blame for being cast aside in this World by spying on friends. Hard reality to take here, but this is our World now, accept it!

Britain could buy weapons from its former Cold War foe for the first time under a landmark defence treaty, the Telegraph can reveal. Defence chiefs are preparing to sign a deal that would see British defence companies working jointly on projects with the Russian arms industry. The treaty allows arms companies to buy kit from Russia – and Russian diplomatic sources said they hope one day to see British soldiers carrying the Red Army’s famous Kalashnikov rifle as a result. Ministry of Defence sources confirmed the deal creates the legal framework for the British Army to buy Russian equipment, but stressed their main focus is on allowing firms to share information and buy components from one another. The MoD and the Russian Federal Service for Military Technical Co-operation are now studying the draft text. It could be signed in the spring, Moscow sources said, earlier than previously thought after making quick progress.

The United States is continuing to pile pressure on France to suspend a $1.6bn (£1bn) defence contract with the Russian government amid calls for Europe to adopt meaningful sanctions against Moscow following the downing of Flight MH17. As EU foreign ministers, including Philip Hammond, the foreign secretary, meet in Brussels later today to discuss toughening sanctions, the French refusal to halt the contract to supply two helicopter carriers to the Russian navy has come under particular fire. The fact that France is still providing training to Russian service personnel was the subject of heated contacts between US and European officials last the weekend, officials said, as months of tension over the project came to a head. “The Americans are absolutely furious about the French still training the Russians,” a Western diplomatic source told The Telegraph in Washington. “The question everyone is asking is, ‘at what point does Europe draw the line?’” The UK, which along with Germany has already halted all defence exports to Russia, has lined up squarely behind the Obama administration which has led misgivings among some Nato countries about the French-Russian deal even before the crisis in Ukraine.

CELTIC ROUT KR REYKJAVIK AS WE AWAIT NEXT OPPONENTS (GOALS VIDEO)

Celtic were breathtaking tonight as we done the job we came through to Edinburgh to do. We can see the style Ronny is wanting us to play slowly come through, he has so many strikers on the park. Tonight ended 4-0 but could easily have been 10-0 with Commons either hitting the post of having shots saved. All in it was a training match as Celtic now await the winners of Cliftonville v Legia Warsaw (1-1) in Ireland tomorrow.

Celtic took the lead on 13 minutes, corner on the far side, Commons floated it in, Lustig headed back towards goal, Van Dijk was there to make it 1-0 on the night.

Van Dijk got the first 2 goals

Van Dijk got the first 2 goals

We had to wait just over 5 minutes for 2-0, same players involved, Commons corner, headed back to the back post by Lustig and there was Van Dijk to head home. At this stage Celtic were rampant, and we are still looking for full fitness. We are still in Pre-Season mode, so the performance tonight was even more brilliant when you add that in

3-0 came on 26 minutes when Pukki, who had missed a few chances got on the end of a McGregor cross before the KR keeper and a well deserved goal by Pukki. Celtic had chance after chance. We hit the post, the bar, crosses across the KR goal. But it is still early, so far the signs look superb. Ronny is still unbeaten as Celtic Manager

The tie is was as good as over as Celtic lead 4-0 on aggregate. Virgil van Dijk profited from a couple of goalkeeping blunders and Teemu Pukki added the third goal at Murrayfield. It’s been a stroll in the park for Ronny Deila’s men

The 2nd half saw much of the same, the passing was superb, left to right, back and forward, we made KR  chase so hard they tired badly. Celtic could have scored a ton in Edinburgh tonight but to be fair the KR keeper made a lot of good saves. Pukki I was delighted for, we are slowly seeing a player find form, on 70 minutes Pukki  rounded the keeper and hammered the ball high into the goal. We seen Kayal, Henderson and Matthews come on tonight and even with players missing or off the park Celtic just oozed confidence. I am liking this new style but we must be realistic, we were not playing a world beater tonight

Pukki gets the first of his two, this one thanks to McGregor

Pukki gets the first of his two, this one thanks to McGregor

Professional job by Celtic, 5-0 on aggregate and we look forward to the next round. If tonight’s display is anything to go by, we will sail past whoever we face

Final score Celtic 4-0 KR Reykjavik (5-0 on aggregate)

TCN Man of the match, Johansen, the lad controlled most of what we did but we had a few we could pick. Johansen is a fine player and like many are showing they will get better and better under the new manager

Thanks to @CelticGoals
