“Dalia Khalifa, a 9-year old Palestinian girl, was seriously injured during the Israeli offensive on Gaza Strip, at Zaytoon neighborhood. Khalifa came out of her family’s house was hit randomly by Israeli shelling of the town.
With her injures and blood over her small body, Khaifa almost lost her life. She stayed at a hospital for a long where she was listed in critical condition.
Khalifa escaped death and has become an icon for life when photographers take her face with the shrapnels and show her how she loves the life and how much she is a fracture-resistant.” Found at:
If there is any censorship of expression, thought or “Free Speech” then we have a problem. We have laws to protect us from deformation, slander, promoting hatred, etc. We have laws that protect our children and we should have more. But, if someone expresses an opinion that is not slanderous or compliant with deformation, then it should not be censored. The recent event in Paris is a glowing example of totalitarian control and a double-standard. On one hand we have cartoons designed to demonize a specific group and possibly create violence or a backlash, and yet any comment targeting Israel that does not place them above the rest of us mere mortals, is forbidden or worse…it is a blasphemy! 1984 and the Thought-Police are alive and well. “Double-Speak” is the language of the day. Free Speech is the right of all of us and not a gift from authority. -The Warrior

“I saw small boys baited and killed by Israeli soldiers in the Gaza refugee camp of Khan Younis. The soldiers swore at the boys in Arabic over the loudspeakers of their armored jeep. The boys, about 10 years old, then threw stones at an Israeli vehicle and the soldiers opened fire, killing some, wounding others.”
“…military intelligence officials from the two countries held annual intelligence-sharing conferences and South African military representatives came to the West Bank to view the anti-riot equipment the Israeli army was using against Palestinians. When foreign journalists in the West Bank encountered visiting South African military officials, the Israeli military censor was quickly ordered to hush it up. Back in South Africa, a large contingent of Israeli rocketry experts was holed up in the seaside town of Arniston helping the South African government put the finishing touches on ballistic missiles intended to carry its next generation of nuclear weapons.” -Sasha Polakow-Suransky, Huffington Post. “Bolding” added by WS
