Who Wants Peace In The Middle East?

If you missed seeing this story that was recently broadcast on 60 Minutes in the US, I highly recommend you take the time to watch the YouTube movie below.

I believe that CBS broadcasting of this kind of program that openly discloses the Jew's settlements would have been impossible under Bush's regime. I wonder how many Americans have actually seen this?

It is important for us all to understand the root cause of Israel-Palestinian conflict!

Here are some excerpts from the program:

(CBS) Getting a peace deal in the Middle East is such a priority to President Obama that his first foreign calls on his first day in office were to Arab and Israeli leaders. And on day two, the president made former Senator George Mitchell his special envoy for Middle East peace. Mr. Obama wants to shore up the ceasefire in Gaza, but a lasting peace really depends on the West Bank where Palestinians had hoped to create their state. The problem is, even before Israel invaded Gaza, a growing number of Israelis and Palestinians had concluded that peace between them was no longer possible, that history had passed it by. For peace to have a chance, Israel would have to withdraw from the West Bank, which would then become the Palestinian state.

It's known as the "two-state" solution. But, while negotiations have been going on for 15 years, hundreds of thousands of Jewish settlers have moved in to occupy the West Bank. Palestinians say they can't have a state with Israeli settlers all over it, which the settlers say is precisely the idea...

"While my heart still wants to believe that the two-state solution is possible, my brain keeps telling me the opposite because of what I see in terms of the building of settlements. So, these settlers are destroying the potential peace for both people that would have been created if we had a two-state solution," Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, once a former candidate for Palestinian president, told Simon...

Daniella Weiss moved from Israel to the West Bank 33 years ago. She has been the mayor of a large settlement.

"I think that settlements prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state in the land of Israel. This is the goal. And this is the reality," Weiss told 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon...

"Israel DEFENDING itself" Really?

Click here to view a live web camera from Gaza.

The media says "Israel is DEFENDING itself"
Let's see if that is so... Have a look a the images on this page (the images of the missiles that have landed in Israel can be seen below the images of Gaza so scroll down!):

Israel is even making an effort to control the Arabic media:

Fortunately we can see what is really happening if we look carefully:
I will post more footage in my Japanese blog. Please visit and spread to your western friends. Let's become the media ourselves when the mainstream media is not telling what is happening accurately. You MUST have a look at the page and watch the live news report from the excellent Iranian news service PressTV:

"Hamas must stop attacking Israel to attain peace." Most political leaders and the US media voice this message. On the surface this seems to be right. However check out this movie and you will see why Hamas is doing what it is doing:

Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: Media & the Israel-Palestine Conflict

Violence and terrorism must stop, I agree, but the occupation by Israel also must stop. They have been making the life of the Palestinians impossible for a long, long time (60 years to be exact) and now they are killing them indiscriminately. Not long ago they built a wall to keep them apart from Israel and to make it impossible for them to escape anywhere. The weapons used to kill the Palestinians are from the military aid provided by the USA (Read this story to learn more!). Part of the money comes from ordinary Japanese people's personal savings by way of Japanese Banks. Japanese people buy Japanese short-term government bonds. The Bank of Japan uses their money to sell yen and buy US dollars. The Bank of Japan than buys US Treasury Bonds, and part of that money goes to military spending and overseas aid.One third of US overseas aid goes to Israel, which is one of the richest countries in the world. And more than half of US aid to Israel is military aid (3.5 billion USD in 2002, plus Israel receives free weapons from the US).

Americans and Japanese, do you see there is a direct relationship to you with what is happening in Gaza?

What would you do if you were a mother or a father living in Gaza right now?
