Damascus, January 31 – At least 45 people were killed and dozens more injured in a suburb of the Syrian capital today, in a triple bombing that was not perpetrated by Israel, and will therefore soon disappear from the international consciousness.

A car bomb exploded in Sayeda Zeinab, and then two suicide bombers detonated themselves as rescue work was occurring, according to witnesses cited by Reuters. The location, which boasts the oldest Shiite shrine in Syria, and the carnage, which so far includes 110 wounded, will soon drop out of the news cycle because no international bodies will call for an investigative commission into allegations of war crimes, as the bombing was not conducted by Israel.

Human rights groups such as Amnesty International quickly condemned the bombing, apparently by the Islamic State, as a violation of the Laws of Armed Conflict and of international humanitarian law, then lost interest as other events such as the existence of Israel grabbed their attention. After a flurry of head-shaking and stern words, the organizations determined that no more could be said or done on the matter, since it was not the Jewish State that had committed the atrocity, and that no further formal steps were necessary.

This is Israel:

"According to Palestinian Media Watch, the Palestinian daily Al Hayat Al Jadida reported, "PA Minister of Health, Hani Abdeen visited the Israeli Hadassah Hospital. This is the first visit by a Palestinian minister to one of the most important Israeli hospitals, according to the hospital's announcement. Minister Abdeen who was accompanied by a delegation that included senior officials of the ministry and of the PA, met with the Director of Ein Karem Hadassah Hospital, Yuval Weiss. He [the minister] visited Palestinian patients being treated in the hospital, and he distributed gifts."

Al Hayat Al Jadida continued, "Hospital director Weiss said: 'We relate to patients without regard to nationality and religion. We treat Muslims, Christians, Jews, and other nationalities without bias, and 30% of the patients who are children are Palestinians.' He went on to say: 'We've begun cooperating with the Palestinians. We now train teams of physicians from the hospital in Beit Jala in the southern West Bank, to treat cancer among children. We have about 60 Palestinian medical interns and specialist physicians who will be returning to the Palestinian Authority areas to carry out their work."

Both sides were guilty of massacres and atrocities. Morris says that the Jews were surprisingly restrained.

Keith A of Hertford - PM
Date: 05 Jun 14 - 04:19 AM

"Sixty-two Jews were murdered by Arabs in the first week after the UN partition plan was passed, and by May 15, 1948, a total of 1,256 Jews had been killed, most of them civilians. These deaths were caused by Arab militias, gangs, terrorists and army units which attacked every place of Jewish inhabitation in Palestine.
       The attacks succeeded in placing Jerusalem under siege and eventually cutting off its water supply. All Jewish villages in the Negev were attacked, and Jews had to go about the country in convoys. In every major city where Jews and Arabs lived in mixed neighborhoods the Jewish areas came under attack. This was true in Haifa's Hadar Hacarmel as well as Jerusalem's Old City.
       Massacres were not uncommon. THIRTY-NINE Jews were killed by Arab rioters at Haifa's oil refinery on December 30, 1947. On January 16, 1948, 35 Jews were killed trying to reach Gush Etzion. On February 22, 44 Jews were murdered in a bombing on Jerusalem's Rehov Ben-Yehuda. And on February 29, 23 Jews were killed all across Palestine, eight of them at the Hayotzek iron foundry. Thirty-five Jews were murdered during the Mount Scopus convoy massacre on April 13. And 127 Jews were massacred at Kfar Etzion on May 15, 1948, after 30 others had died defending the Etzion Bloc."Frantzman, Seth. Ethnic Cleansing in Palestine?. Jerusalem Post. Aug 16, 2007.

Predicated, Steve, on the inevitable result of the dishonesty of assuring us all at the time of the 1974 Referendum that an economic agreement, with no political overtones, was all that was being addressed: which Heath and his fellow shitheaps knew right well was never going to be the case. Since when Europe has imposed on us a series of requirements to our national and demographic disadvantage and bane. I expect you will try to invoke the dreaded R word; till recalling that the threats to our wellbeing come exclusively from fellow-Caucasian would-be self-betterers whose motivations are purely economic and not political. There is no threat to their liberties, only to their living standards which is buggerall biznis of yours & mine. Suppose I had better say my piece yet again about how the only thing which really moderates the mutual loathing of the French & Germans is their even greater shared hatred of us, for having beaten one of them in 1945, while the other had so lamentably failed us, and then gome a-cockcrowing on stinking ungrateful cochon de Gaulle's fetid dunghill, as if they had done it all by their bloody stinking selves, oh ainsi brillant qu'ils étaient.

I disagree with you on one point Steve, The losing Israel mindset comes from a much deeper place than politics. Although I do agree that politicians often cater to this fear. But the fear is real and defies political manipulation in a way because it is often at the root of Israels reactions to things going on around them. Again, not an excuse, just an observation. I do not know if many people outside Israel understand this but perhaps it might be useful to look at why this fear exists by looking at recent Jewish history.. the 20th century for example.

Fear of losing Israel is part of the "tiny country surrounded by huge hostile enemies" mindset that successive Israeli regimes nurture in order to keep their people onside. It's not just an Israel thing by a long chalk. The enemy without was very well delineated in Orwell's 1984. More recently we've had invocations of evil empires, the axis of evil and so on. The Cold War fed on it for decades, even though "Russia" was never really a threat to the US or Western Europe at all. All illusory but very convenient. Yes there's a lot of rhetoric from the more idiotic Islamic factions about wiping Israel off the map, etc., but rhetoric is all it's ever been. No-one has ever come close, nor should they even think about it (hope I'm not losing friends...)

One of the big fears that many Jews have , both inside and outside of Israel, is the fear of losing Israel itself. I have heard that fear expressed but when trying to work out how to " save Israel" there is so much deep emotion that it is hard to get round to solutions. This is not an excuse by the way, simply an observation of one of the many factors involved.

Quite right Steve, I did not live there. As a Palestinian . I also never claimed that Israel is blameless in that sorry mess that is the Middle East. When living there one IS aware of the split personality of the place...the deeply held belief that The Jewish people feel the need for a " homeland" and the equally obvious fact that Palestinians need a "homeland" as well. most of the people I knew whilst living there recognized both those needs but obviously could not agree as to how that should happen.
My personal belief is that Palestinians have been shafted both by Israel and by their own leadership.
On a slightly lighter.note, I have lived in four countries over my working life. I hope, if the conversation arises, that I may be anble to comment on them as well. But, to return to your point, I do know that .living in a place does not always give one expertise but Do feel that experience of a place is, in many ways, a great teacher if one is interested and observant.

You specifically targeted Benny Morris's "27 massacres" statement, claiming they dad been disputed - if they have where?
You have always claimed there have never been any massacres - don't say you are going to lie about this after the number of times you have said it?
"I never said that. It is a Morris quote not mine."
You have put it up twice in support of your arguments - it is your defence which makes it antisemitic - for crying out loud, stand by it.
Morris's reason for putting forward, considering the times he was writing about, is perfectly acceptable, yours is not.
Stop putting up irrelevant Morris quotes that are not being disputed, especially as you are still lying about his arguments being challenged, and have yet to give us examples.
""they didn't do it" is another of your fake quotes Jim."
It is an accurate paraphrase of your entire argument - I will continue to use it - nothing fake about it.
Stop digging

Israel's opposition to being tried and the International Criminal Court - are we taking this as read?

"much as the demonisation of the Jews "

I never said that. It is a Morris quote not mine.

the killers they helped to carry out the massacre and helped to escape, have ever faced trial - they even buried the bodies so the enormity of the massacre will never be known.

"they helped to carry out the massacre " is an unsubstantiated accusation that they deny. I put their side of the story.

"they even buried the bodies" is an unsubstantiated accusation that they deny. I put their side of the story.

Israel has never been tried for its war crimes and massacres

Perhaps it has not committed any. That is certainly what other decent democratic governments think. There is certainly no unequivocal evidence for it.

if you wish to defend Israel, come up with something better than "they didn't do it" -

"they didn't do it" is another of your fake quotes Jim.
I have never said such a thing. I just put their side of the argument.
What is your objection to both sides being heard?

I would never slander you, Keith. You're pretty good at digging your own holes. As for having anything to say on the conflict in question, well blow me down, I've never mentioned it before in any of my posts, have I?

Michael, if your love of UKIP is predicated simply on their wanting us out of Europe, I'm afraid you don't get UKIP at all and I suggest that you do a little digging.

Well, HiLo, I listened to some interviews on Radio 3 a couple of weeks ago with the actor Antony Sher who had lived in apartheid South Africa. You can probably get a podcast of the interviews. He expressed his extreme shame when he admitted that he didn't see the horrors of apartheid until he left the country. You were not in Israel as a Palestinian unless I'm seriously mistaken. The privileged in divided countries are insulated from the troubles. It's up to you to open your eyes now to what goes on. My uncles, returning from Rhodesia, refused to see it. Antony Sher opened his eyes. I don't know where you are with it. And please don't tell me that I had to live there. Most people who live there are fed a distorted view of what goes on, if they have to think about it at all. It's what governments do, even ours.

When I came to England in 1968, at 19, I looked around me and I didn't see any Jewish leading men in the classical theatre, so I thought it best to conceal my Jewishness. Also, I quickly became conscious of apartheid when I arrived here, and I didn't want to be known as a white South African. I was brought up in a very apolitical family. We were happy to enjoy the benefits of apartheid without questioning the system behind it. Reading about apartheid when I came to England was a terrible shock. So I lost the accent almost immediately, and if anyone asked me where I was from I would lie.

Then why have you persistently denied that Israel has never carried out massacres, and why did you claim that Benny Morris's statements had been disputed?

Because I was referring to recent history not 1948 before the IDF even existed in its present form.
Benny Morris has numerous critics and historians who disagree with him.

He says, ""True, I always voted Labor or Meretz or Sheli and in 1988 I refused to serve in the territories and was jailed for it, but I always doubted the intentions of the Palestinians. The events of Camp David and what followed in their wake turned the doubt into certainty. When the Palestinians rejected the proposal of [prime minister Ehud] Barak in July 2000 and the Clinton proposal in December 2000, I understood that they are unwilling to accept the two-state solution. They want it all: Lod and Acre and Jaffa."

Is that universally accepted Jim? Do you accept it?
What about,

"The bombing of the buses and restaurants really shook me. They made me understand the depth of the hatred for us. They made me understand that the Palestinian, Arab and Muslim hostility toward Jewish existence here is taking us to the brink of destruction.... Palestinian society is a very sick society. It should be treated the way we treat individuals who are serial killers. Maybe over the years the establishment of a Palestinian state will help in the healing process. But in the meantime, until the medicine is found, they have to be contained so that they will not succeed in murdering us.... Something like a cage has to be built for them. I know that sounds terrible. It is really cruel. But there is no choice. There is a wild animal there that has to be locked up in one way or another."

"Jim, massacres were committed by both sides in 1948."
Then why have you persistently denied that Israel has never carried out massacres, and why did you claim that Benny Morris's statements had been disputed?
As I said, you lied on both counts - why did you attempt to undermine one of Israel's leading historians with untruths?
I am noth the slightest bit interested in what else Morris has to say - he said that Israel was guilty of 27 massacres - you dismissed this as having been disputed - a porky.
"much as the demonisation of the Jews "
You are now claiming critisism of Israel is demonising Jews - that is Antisemitic - the Jewish people are in no way responsible for the crimes of Israel, as you appear to be claiming, otherwise, why bring it up?
"I acknowledge now and have never denied that some Jews committed vile crimes at that time."
Bit convoluted - are you still saying that you have never claimed Jews committed foul crimes - please explain this unintelligible statement.
They have been protected from standing trial by a mass of US vetoes time after time
They refused to co-operate with the 2009 U.N. enquiry into the Gaza incursion, they have encouraged and participated in the setting up of a rigged "enquiry" into 2015 massacres which found them "not guilty".
They have opposed the International Criminal Court to the extent of demanding that it be closed.
After Sabra/Shatila, they set up an equally rigged enquiry and found themselves "not guily" for their part in the massacre of 3,500 unarmed refugees - they, nor the killers they helped to carry out the massacre and helped to escape, have ever faced trial - they even buried the bodies so the enormity of the massacre will never be known.
Israel has never been tried for its war crimes and massacres and, if it has its way, (and if Donald Trump is elected) it never shall.
Nowe stop ducking and diving; if you wish to defend Israel, come up with something better than "they didn't do it" - what kind of a defence attorney are you?

but their rrefusal to stand trial and to bring the International crimes court crashing in flames is fairly incriminating - you have yet to address the consequences of that.

They have not refused to stand trial. They have never been asked to.
They have certainly not brought the ICC crashing in flames!!!

Statements like these show that you are incapable of being rational about anything to do with Israel.
You do have an irrational phobia that clouds your mind.

Israel has been co-operating with ICC over Gaza 2014, and the initial ICC report does not condemn them.
