“And we shall surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, ‘indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return’” (The Glorious Quran, 2:155-56)

We see the complicity of our own American empire in every aspect of this massacre and disproportionate and excessive use of power by the Israeli state. The F-16’s are produced here in the US and Condoleeza Rice has stated, “We strongly condemn the repeated rocket and mortar attacks against Israel and hold Hamas responsible for breaking the ceasefire and for the renewal of violence there.” The collusion between power and the shamelessness with which they lie and distort is politics as usual for the Imperial Empire.  The Gazans are mere fodder for their thousand pound bombs. The values of the Western states complicit in this Israeli state terror are Machivellian cynics whose morality is only to hold to power at all costs.
