Zionist propaganda on Gaza

An article in today's Guardian by Uri Dromi headlined "Israel's use of force was justified" prompted a comment from me - along with about a thousand others identifying it as a text-book piece of Israeli propaganda by a man with close links to the Israeli Security Services (a fact that the Guardian saw fit not to mention). Comments were/are running about 10:1 in condemnation of the thrust of the piece and are well worth reading, along with the article itself, as a good illustration of just how polished and bare-faced the Zionist propaganda machine is. My comment was in the form of a series of somewhat rhetorical questions to Dromi. This is an expanded version of it:

I have some questions for Uri Dromi:
  1. Which country is in breach of more UN resolutions than any other?
  2. How many Israelis were killed by Hamas rockets in the 6 months leading to the breaking of the cease-fire? (Clue: it was less than 1)
  3. Who broke the ceasefire on US presidential election day 4th November (a good day to bury bad news eh?) and how many people did they kill doing so?
  4. Which is closest to the Palestinian/Israeli deaths ratio since the inception of the Israeli State - 2/1, 10/1, 100/1 ?
  5. Who won the Internationally supervised Palestinian election in 2006 with close to 70% of the vote against their man rival with about 30% - IOW who are the legitimate DEMOCRATICALLY elected government of the Palestinian territories?
  6. Whose Presidential term expired on 5th January but is still treated by both Israel and the West as the legitimate spokesman for Palestinians?
  7. Which territory has been rigidly blockaded by land, sea and air ever since those elections and in spite of ceasefire undertakings?
  8. How many miles of (a) Apartheid walls and (b) 'Jews-only' roads + Jewish settlements have been built in the Palestinian West Bank territory in the past 5 years - in further gross violation of UN resolutions?
  9. If God had (allegedly) decreed that the British Isles were the 'Promised Land of XXXXX' and Uri Dromey and his family found themselves systematically dispossessed, exiled, imprisoned, ethnically-cleansed and generally treated as unwelcome inhabitants in their own homes etc etc., would he become 1. A collaborator. 2. A cowed and frightened individual keeping his head down to protect his family and hopefully avoid the attentions of the invaders, or c - An 'Insurgent', or 'Militant' - pick your own demonising euphemism?
  10. Why is it A-OK for Israel to abrogate the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty and posses nuclear weapons with the connivance of the West - at all - let alone when senior Israeli political and military figures such as Professor Martin van Creveld make statements like this this? :
"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under."
The questions are of course largely rhetorical. On any reasonable analysis Zionist Israel is the most dangerous, repressive, racist and apartheid state on the planet. It is in fact a War Crime in progress.
