[ Editors Note: Press TV had Gordon and I on together for the first time for rolling coverage on Gaza. We got some good licks in not just on Israel but the pitiful weakness of the UN for doing anything about state sponsored terrorism which is going on everywhere behind diplomatic immunity. If we don’t show some stomach for standing up to this we are going to reap the whirlwind, as the attitude I am seeing quite widespread is that “as long as it is not happening to me, it’s not a problem.”
We wove into the show that Israel is involved in almost all of these terror wars in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Ukraine, and Gaza, given the financial strength to do it in large part via the huge subsidies by the American taxpayers through our compromized Congress.
We closed by getting the boycott word back out on the table as the only thing that is going to effect Israeli behavior is force…both publicly and behind the scenes. And the politicians will not take the lead on that for sure. They will also have to be forced. So we are left with a two front war, here and now… Jim W. Dean ]

The silence and inaction of the Western governments over Israel’s crimes in Gaza has obliterated any residual moral standing that the West has claimed for itself, a political analyst tells Press TV.
In a Tuesday interview with Press TV, Jim W. Dean, Chief Editor of Veteran’s Today, slammed the West for turning a blind eye to Israel’s crimes, saying,
“The whole reputation and morality of Western jurisprudence and everything is … on display here as to how decrepit it is, and how hollowed out, and how it really represents nothing. Any claim to any morality by Western governments is … dying in Gaza as we speak,” he added.
The analyst also lashed out at the UN for its failure to put an end to Israel’s atrocities in Gaza and said,
“They never contribute anything to try to end this because they would rather be a friend of Israel than a friend to the Arabs and the Palestinians in Gaza. For them they have earned a special disgrace for their behavior.”
The Israeli regime is continuing its relentless aerial and ground attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip for the 22nd consecutive day, causing more deaths and destruction.
At least 100 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed and many more injured since the Israeli regime escalated the war on Gaza Monday night.
Since July 8, Israeli warplanes have been pounding numerous sites in the Gaza Strip, demolishing houses and burying families in the rubble. Israeli forces also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian land on July 17.
The overall death toll among the Palestinians in more than three weeks of Israeli attacks has neared 1,200. More than 6,700 others have been injured.
