Hunter’s been posting lately on Gab about the fact that the Spaniards were among the first to categorize Judaism as something genetic/blood-borne rather than religious, and I personally find it fascinating to think about how such a truth became known back in the day.
Was it through extensive study of the Jews who allegedly “converted” to Christianity during the Reconquista – complete with the deviousness that has characterized the Tribe since the days of Ancient Rome?
Or was it something more instinctual – driven by a clergyman’s observation that something just didn’t sit right “behind the eyes” of the Jews he came across?
Did this humble and anonymous Christian man have a vision or dream of future crimes against humanity, and did he comprehend the terror that would be unleashed upon the world if something were not done to combat the Semitic cancer?
Baha Abu Ayash winced as a nurse unraveled the bandage around his right ankle. There was a whiff of rotting meat as a gaping bullet wound came into view. A doctor pinched his toes. They were black and cold.
For six days, the 23-year-old and his family had held out hope that his foot might be saved, if only he could be evacuated from the Gaza Strip. But it was too late now, the doctor from Jordan told them. Even if Israel agreed to the transfer, the decision would be the same.
“This patient needs a life-saving amputation,” the doctor said. “Gangrene has set in. … It is very critical.”
Still, the family hesitated. Nobody in the family had steady work. Who would support the young man if his foot or leg were removed?
“It’s not an easy decision,” said Mohammed Abu Ayash, one of his 12 siblings.
The toll of violence during two months of protests along the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel is most often measured in deaths: at least 123 Palestinians killed by Israeli gunfire.
But more than 13,000 have been wounded — 3,600 of them took bullets — according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. Nearly 60 percent of those gunshot casualties were hit in the legs — a strategy employed by the Israeli military to limit killings.
Doctors say many of these wounds are unusually severe and will require multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation. In most cases, the patients will be left with life-long disabilities.
For the record, this policy was not meant to curb killings, but was intended as a form of terror among the residents of Gaza.
In such a society, essentially reduced to pre-civilization status, the strength of a family’s men determines whether everyone else will eat and have a roof to sleep under at night.
Minus arms and/or legs on the menfolk, and you wind up with broken and starving women and children.
Even before the current round of violence, Gaza’s hospitals were beset by chronic shortages of medicines, equipment and basic supplies, including dressings, antibiotics and painkillers.
Salaries for doctors and nurses have been slashed and sometimes go unpaid. With electricity available just a few hours a day, health facilities depend on generators that destroy their equipment.
Again, driven back into almost a literal Stone Age where subsistence activities exist as the only way to earn a living.
I have nothing but respect for the doctors and nurses who report to work each and every day (non-White status not mattering one bit), for they are harder and stronger than almost anything we currently have here in the West.
“I can’t find the words to describe the shortages we have here,” said Dr. Rami Hamdan, as he slumped into a chair to catch his breath in between surgeries.
In many cases, bullets had shattered bones, destroyed tissue and left large exit wounds. Hamdan said surgeons had to share the hospital’s only orthopedic drill.
“We clean and disinfect it, but we aren’t sterilizing it,” he said.
Knowing the Jews and their love of sadism, we can assume shipments of antibiotics and Lysol-style cleaning products are among the first to be seized.
The sheer number of surgical cases was forcing doctors to make agonizing choices: spend hours repairing severed veins to try to restore blood flow to a limb, or quickly stanch the bleeding and move on to the next patient.
“Many of them, they tried up to exhaustion to save the limb,” said Ana Lucia Bueno, deputy health coordinator for the Red Cross in Gaza. “But they know that outside that room there are 10 more patients waiting for the operating theater … And of course the priority is always life.”
To make room for the next wave of casualties, the hospital is often forced to discharge patients early.
Wadieh Ras, 24, pleaded with staff not to kick him out. It had been just three days since he was shot in the leg at the fence east of Gaza City, and he had metal pins sticking out of his thigh and an exit wound the size of a fist. But his bed would be needed the next day.
It should be easy for someone to understand the levels of evil needed to engage in policies that allow such nightmares to occur – especially when you think of what many of these Israelis’ ancestors did for work during the first half of the Twentieth Century.
Their grandfathers would have been proud Commissars leading the Bolshevik hordes on rape sprees at the end of the Second World War, and their great-grandfathers would have been the heroic Cheka fighters who gleefully nailed Eastern Orthodox priests to barn doors while the nuns lay disemboweled not too far away.
The faces and identities of the victims may change and the weaponry may grow more advanced, but the underlying facts remain the same:
A group of psychopaths behind it all, and a group united by race and not just by religion (as the Spaniards eventually realized).
