- The Untold Story of the Shejaiya Massacre in Gaza: A Former Israel Soldier Speaks Out!
On July 20, at least 90 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed in the Gaza City neighborhood of Shejaiya. Days later, former Israeli soldier Eran Efrati was arrested by Israel after he posted details about the massacre based on interviews he conducted with Israeli soldiers who were there. Today he speaks out about what he learned and talks about the killing of 23-year-old Salem Khaleel Shamaly. Activists with the International Solidarity Movement posted a video on YouTube showing the fatal shooting of an unarmed Palestinian civilian during the massacre. Family members later stumbled onto the video and identified the man as Shamaly. In the video, Shamaly is seen lying on the ground, apparently wounded by an unseen sniper. As Shamaly tries to get to his feet, two more shots ring out, and he stops moving. Efrati interviewed three of the Israeli soldiers who witnessed the killing of Salem Khaleel Shamaly. His sources within the Israeli Defense Forces reportedly informed him soldiers were deliberately targeting civilians as “punishment” and “retribution” for the deaths of fellow soldiers in their units. Efrati is a former Israeli combat soldier turned anti-occupation activist and investigative researcher.

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: The Israeli military says it has opened criminal probes into two of its most publicized killings of Palestinian civilians during the summer’s assault on Gaza. Investigators will examine the killing of four Palestinian children on a Gaza beach and a later attack that killed 14 people in a U.N. school, one of several that hit U.N. shelters. Over 2,100 Palestinians, more than 75 percent civilians, were killed in the Israeli assault. Critics say Israel is seeking to deflect international scrutiny, including a United Nations Human Rights Council probe and potential cases before the International Criminal Court. However, the Israeli army has not announced plans to investigate another notorious episode that occurred during its recent assault on Gaza. That’s the Shejaiya massacre in July, when nearly 90 Gazans and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed.
AMY GOODMAN: Shejaiya is one of Gaza’s poorest and most crowded neighborhoods. Activists with the International Solidarity Movement posted a video on YouTube showing the fatal shooting of an unarmed Palestinian civilian during the massacre. Family members later stumbled onto the video and identified the man as 23-year-old Salem Khaleel Shamaly. In the video, we see Shamaly lying on the ground, apparently wounded by an unseen sniper. As Shamaly tries to get to his feet, two more shots ring out. He stops moving.
Well, our next guest interviewed three of the Israeli soldiers who witnessed the killing of Salem Shamaly. His confidential sources within the IDF, the Israeli Defense Forces, reportedly informed him that the real reason for the recent IDF Shejaiya massacre was that IDF soldiers were deliberately targeting civilians as punishment and retribution for the deaths of fellow soldiers in their units. This former soldier is named Eran Efrati. He’s a former Israeli combat soldier turned anti-occupation activist and investigative researcher. Later this month, Efrati will testify at the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in Brussels.
Eran Efrati, we welcome you to Democracy Now!
ERAN EFRATI: Thank you. I’m happy to be here.
AMY GOODMAN: Can you talk about why you went to the border to interview Israeli soldiers?
ERAN EFRATI: Well, I’m doing this job for almost five years now, since Operation Cast Lead. I’m collecting testimonies from soldiers. I started in Breaking the Silence, the organization, and moved on independently to take testimonies, collect testimonies from soldiers in the IDF, because I was there as a soldier, and I know that what we get in the mainstream media and what we get in the news is most of the time very far from what’s really going on in the area. In this summer, I was sitting in Jerusalem in my home, and the atmosphere in Israel, the fascist atmosphere in the streets in Jerusalem, and the overall approval of this terrible massacre that happened in Gaza was so overwhelming that I decided to go on down to the border with Gaza and try to speak directly with the soldiers, because I knew that I will get something else from them.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: Well, I’d like to go to a—Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy questioned Israeli spokesman Mark Regev about the shooting death of Salem Shamaly. He asked Regev if Israel plans to investigate the shooting. This is how Regev responded.
- Sir Gerald Kaufmann (UK Jewish MP):
“My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town. A German soldier shot her dead in her bed. “My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. “
“The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt among gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.”
- He said the claim that many of the Palestinian victims were militants “was the reply of the Nazi” and added: “I suppose the Jews fighting for their lives in the Warsaw ghetto could have been dismissed as militants.”
‘Israel was born out of Jewish Terrorism! …. They are not simply war criminals. They are fools!’
- “ … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” - from 4:22 onwards
- “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” - Quote
“Shalom (Ex ShinBet chief) shocked viewers. He called Israeli occupation no different from Nazi occupied Europe.” – Quote
- The 13th Tribe of Khazaria! Ashkenazi Khazars Are Not The Jews of The Bible!
If almost 98% of JEWS we know today are NOT semitic, wouldn’t the term ANTI-SEMITIC be null and void? I made this video with 3 Jewish friends who admit they are not Semites!!!!
“Many [modern-day Jews] of whom have clamored to go back [to Palestine] NEVER had antecedents [physical ancestors] in that part of the world …. The OVERWHELMING majority of Jews are descendants from the converts of Khazaria and elsewhere who ADOPTED Judaism…. This VIEW of the NON-ethnicity of the largest portion of Jewry IS SUSTAINED by such prominent anthropologists as Ripley, Weissenberg, Hertz, Boas, Pittard, Fishberg, Mead and others. . “
- Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal
“… Though many Jews are NOT of Semitic origin, we are the religious, spiritual, and national [but NOT genetic] descendants of those who first formed the early foundations of Judaism who were Semites”
- Rabbi Cyril A. Stanway in “Viewpoints,” Thursday, November 8, 1990, in the Sun-News (Las Cruces, New Mexico)
“. . these Eastern European, Yiddish-speaking Jews who form the Zionist group practically in toto [almost entirely], have NEITHER a geographic, historic NOR ethnic connection with either the Jews [Israelite Judahites] of the Old Testament OR the land known today as Palestine. “
- Jewish Dr. Benjamin H. Freedman, published by the National Economic Council, Inc. as “Council Letter No. 177 (October 15, 1947)
- Modern Judaism is not the religion of the Bible! See here!
- Modern Ashkenazi Jews are not the Jews of the Bible! God’s covenant was with Abraham and his biological descendents. Ashkenazi Jews are not semitic and their ancestors were never in Palestine. They are not the descendents of Abraham/Isaac/Israel. They have no right to stay in Palestine. What the Zionists are doing to the Palestinians is called: genocide and ethnic cleansing! Zionist ’666′ Israel is not the Israel of the Bible! It is a LIE!
1980 Jewish Almanac
“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.” (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3)
The Jewish Encyclopedia:
“Khazars, a non-Semitic, Asiatic, Mongolian tribal nation who emigrated into Eastern Europe about the first century, who were converted as an entire nation to Judaism in the seventh century by the expanding Russian nation which absorbed the entire Khazar population, and who account for the presence in Eastern Europe of the great numbers of Yiddish-speaking Jews in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Galatia, Besserabia and Rumania.”
The American Peoples Encyclopedia … for 1954 at 15-292 records the following in reference to the Khazars: “In the year 740 A.D. the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were crushed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews.
According to the standard Jewish Encyclopedia 96% of all the Jews known to the world today are descendents of the Khazar tribes of Russia, Eastern Europe and western Mongolia.
- The Bible specifically forbids the ill-treatment of people different from us ie: strangers. What Zionist ’666′ Israel does to the Palestinians is called: genocide and ethnic cleansing! Zionist ’666′ Israel is in total violation of God’s law!
“You shall neither mistreat a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
“Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
‘And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him.’
The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the LORD your God.’
You shall have the same law for the stranger and for one from your own country; for I am the LORD your God.
22 It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,” says the Lord GOD.
- The so-called Star of David is a Satanic symbol. Satanists and occult practitioners use it for calling Satan and demons!
Former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen (now born again Christian)
“A hexagram must be present to call forth a demon” and ” it is a very powerful tool to invoke Satan”. – “To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan.” In fact, the word “hex” — as to put a “hex” or “curse” on people — comes from this word. – If you examine the so-called “Star of David,” or hexagram, closely, you will discover something astonishing. It has six points, forms six equilateral triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon — thus it reveals the number of Satan’ antichrist beast, — 6 points, 6 triangles, and the 6 sides of the hexagram — 666 !!!

U.S., NATO, Hold Joint War Games in Ukraine and Give Ukraine Weapons, to Continue Ethnic Cleansing Campaign!
- The whole Ukraine civil war must be put in the correct context. It has nothing to do with the sovereignty of Ukraine, nor the peace, security and the unity of Ukraine. The Kiev military has been ordered to genocide and ethnically cleansed Eastern Ukraine citizens who are ethnic Russians to provoke the Russian Bear into a European wide war! The western controlled puppet government in Kiev is guilty as hell for betraying the Ukrainian people.
- Eastern Ukrainians are cannon fodder to provoke Putin to come and rescue them as they are ethnic Russians. This is the pretext US+NATO need to start their genocidal European war as part of the Satanic WW3. Putin is, of course, not so stupid. He is employing private contractors, mercenaries, citizen volunteers … to assist the Eastern Ukrainian people in defending themselves against genocide and ethnic cleansing. The western Illuminist MSM is painting the Russian Bear as the guilty party. It is war propaganda!
- To those of you who have problems with the Putin employing mercenaries, private contractors … in Eastern Ukraine, my question is: why is it OK when the US+NATO do it? The west has been sending in the CIA, FBI, mercenaries, private contractors, military advisors (even before the civil war started) … and now deploying their own troops, weapons into west Ukraine. What are all these about? US+NATO is simply using Ukraine as a proxy to wage war against Russia. Ukraine is the bait, the cannon fodder, to lure the Russian Bear.
- U.S., NATO, Hold Joint War Games in Ukraine, and Give Ukraine Weapons, to Continue Ethnic Cleansing Campaign!
During 15-26 September, the U.S. and 14 other NATO countries are holding war games in Ukraine, in order to assist the Ukrainian military to eliminate Ukraine’s cultural Russians. Ukraine is not yet a NATO country, but aims to become one; and NATO under President Obama has ended being any sort of alliance for democracy, and is now instead little more than an alliance against Russia — a Cold War alliance this time not against communism and the Soviet Union (which are long gone), but instead for American conquest, pure and simple, to dominate the entire world militarily – including especially domination over Russia. That would then be Obama’s enduring achievement in foreign policy: extending “The American Century” into a second century.
The Ukrainian Government is too insolvent to buy weapons (officially called “lethal assistance,” by contrast to supplying non-lethal items such as food, vests, etc.). Some unnamed NATO countries are thus now donating weapons, to help the Ukrainian Government slaughter enough residents in Ukraine’s southeast so as to enable the coup-regime that was imposed by Obama on Ukraine in February, to become elected into power in nationwide Ukrainian elections, so that this can be called a ‘democracy,’ though that’s what Obama overthrew in February — the man who was authentically democratically elected in 2010. But what got that man elected was overwhelmingly votes from the areas in Ukraine that are now being bombed by the Government that Obama installed. The Ukrainian ‘election’ that was held on May 25th was held only in Ukraine’s northeast, where Obama’s coup was popular. Ukraine was already bombing and trying to exterminate residents of the southeast. After enough residents there, in the southeast, have either escaped from Ukraine or else been slaughtered by Ukraine’s troops, the anti-Russian Government imposed by Obama in February will finally be able to survive a nationwide election, and then the U.S. will become enabled to install nuclear missiles there, aimed against Russian cities. That achievement can’t happen, however, unless the ethnic cleansing campaign is first successfully completed, because the people who live there are pro-Russian: they therefore must be eliminated before our missiles are installed. That’s also the reason why the people whom Obama installed to run the country are followers of Hitler, a man who hated Russians almost as much as he hated Jews. Ukraine’s best troops slaughtering the residents in Ukraine’s southeast are ardent nazis patterned on Hitler’s SS, and some even call themselves “Nazi.” President Obama doesn’t find that embarrassing; to the contrary: it’s his policy — he approves of this Government, because he installed it.
Under U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, fascists were defeated in Germany, Italy, and Japan; but under U.S. President Barack Obama, nazism, which is the specifically racist form of fascism, is being restored to power in Ukraine, so as to enable the U.S. military to destroy Russia, by placing nuclear missiles right next door to it. In addition, Western oil companies, Monsanto, and other U.S. international corporations, are moving in, and Russian companies are being expelled from Ukraine.
Although America’s Republicans oppose Obama and say that he isn’t supporting enough the Ukrainian Government (that he actually installed), America’s Democrats admire Obama and think that his support of nazis in Ukraine is just fine as it is, and that it achieves just the right balance there, and elsewhere in the world, such as in Iraq and Syria, where the U.S. had brought Sunni Islamic fundamentalism and now wages war against it, likewise in perfect policy-balance.
The United States of today might have sided with Hitler and Mussolini, not only against Stalin, but even against Churchill. We’ve come a long, long, way, since WWII.
If President Obama is a liberal, then what is a conservative, in today’s America? How conservative would that have to be, to qualify as “conservative” here? Yet, still, Mr. Obama is probably less conservative than Hitler, though perhaps only equally conservative as Mussolini, who, after all, wasn’t nearly so obsessed to destroy Russia. Perhaps if Obama had been President during the 1940s, the U.S. would have sent reinforcements to help Hitler’s troops at the Battle of Leningrad.
Anyway, nazism has returned, in Ukraine, thanks to U.S. President Barack Obama.
