all through history
the ways of truth and love
have always won.
There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible,
but in the end they always fall.
Think of it ~ always. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Every time I read stories like the two to follow, of of the slaughter of Bessem Ibrahim Abu Rahmah, I forget words, forget everything but the deep abiding icy hatred I feel towards those who make such things happen. I take that feeling and contain it in what I call my "Pandora's Box". I draw strength from the above words of Gandhi.
There are no words to describe the disgust such people as these Talmudic Zionist creatures rouse in my spirit. I take great comfort in knowing that some day they will fall. They will call out for help. They will wonder why no one cares when it happens.
Your evil doings shall never be forgotten.
Zionists DARE cry foul about the Holocaust.
They DARE call this abomination "warfare".
Yes, they DARE because they do not care.
Israel will fall.
The universe is just and there are laws.
Laws that someday Israel will taste in full measure.
"SPIRIT OF HUMANITY, the new Free Gaza Boat",

Israel Navy ships forced a boat trying to deliver food and medical supplies to Gaza to return to Cyprus early Thursday.
Free Gaza group spokeswoman Mary Hughes-Thompson said Israeli naval vessels surrounded the 66-foot (20-meter) Greek-flagged boat off the coast of southern Lebanon and threatened to open fire if it did not turn back.
The Israel Defense Forces said navy ships warned the boat to turn back because it was entering a war zone subject to a naval blockade. The ship turned back without incident, the military said.
Hughes-Thompson said the boat, carrying five tons of supplies and 21 passengers, including three surgeons, was expected to arrive at Larnaca port in Cyprus by Thursday evening.
It was the second failed bid by the U.S.-based group to try to reach Gaza since Israel launched its assault on the Palestinian territory late last month in response to rocket fire on Israel.
One of the trip's organizers, Vangelis Pisias, said the Israeli navy had threatened to open fire on the Greek-flagged boat Spirit of Humanity, which was carrying the activists.
"They told us that it was forbidden to go to our destination. We replied that we were carrying humanitarian supplies and continued on our course," Pisias told Greece's private Antenna television.
"About half an hour later, they returned with a threat, telling us they were obliged to stop the boat with all means possible... They said if we did not stop they would shoot."
In a statement, Free Gaza said the incident occurred in international waters and described the incident as shocking.
"At roughly 1:00 A.M. GMT, in international waters 100 miles off the coast of Gaza, at least five Israeli gunboats surrounded the Spirit of Humanity and began recklessly cutting in front of the slow-moving civilian craft," the statement said.
In Athens, the Greek Foreign Ministry said it had sent a strong protest to the Israeli Foreign Ministry that emphasized and asked for the Israeli authorities to pay particular attention to the protection of the lives and security of those on board the boat.
It said protests had also been sent the previous day to the Israeli foreign and defense ministries.

CAIRO, April 16 (KUNA) -- Israeli troops manning the land Al-Ojah checkpoint in Central Sinai sent back 13 truckloads of 250 tons of flour dispatched by the Egyptian Red Crescent to Gaza Strip on Thursday.
The official Egyptian news agency, the Middle East News Agency, quoted a source in the association as saying that the Israeli authorities have hampered dispatch of aid to the alestinians in Gaza Strip through this checkpoint.
The source indicated that Egyptian authorities, had in the past, coordinated with the Israeli side for the dispatch of the humanitarian aid to the Palestinians. Up to 315 tons of food aid were sent to the strip through the land passageways on Monday.
He indicated that the quality of returned food materials would be affected due to hard weather conditions.
About 10,000 tons of food dispatched by Egyptians, Arabs and foreigners, have been kept in warehouses in Egypt since they were dispatched last December. He warned that they would expire soon, before delivery to the Gazans.
