Tweet and delete: On Gaza, celebrity courage — and cowardice — over social media

An interesting analysis of changes ongoing in mass US culture in general, and the role (both inflicted upon and taken up by) celebrity

August 2, 2014

I’m feeling uplifted and disgusted.  Uplifted by all of the people who are commuting their hearts and time to doing good and creating change, and disgusted by all of those who don’t give a shit… or worse, SAY they give a shit and don’t do the work to create change… about the latest events in Gaza.

THIS… ladies and gents, is change in progress

Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador and Peru have all recalled their ambassadors from Israel, following Bolivia and Venezuela who have withdrawn their ambassadors during the 2008-09 massacre in Gaza.

The Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff has condemned what she described as Israel’s “massacre” in Gaza, a term also used even by the French foreign ministry. Turkey’s prime minister has gone even further, accusing Israel of committing “genocide” in Gaza.

In South Africa, the parliamentary group of the ruling ANC party has called for the government to recall its ambassador and expel the Israeli ambassador, and politicians and political parties have made similar calls across the world.

The senate in Chile has voted unanimously in favour of a request to recall the ambassador. The government of Chile has also confirmed it has suspended negotiations on a new free trade agreement with Israel.

The government of Maldives has cancelled three bilateral agreements with Israel and is considering moves to prohibit Israeli products from being imported.

Stocks rise for Israeli drone-maker as Gaza slaughter continues

THIS is what capitalism looks like.  It makes innocent people into test subjects, and pays the media to sell us this reality.

As Israel ruthlessly destroys the besieged Gaza Strip, its largest developer of military technology, Elbit Systems, is benefitting from the bloodshed.

US-traded shares of Elbit have climbed 6.1 percent since 8 July, when Israel began its latest offensive against the Gaza Strip. 

According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Israel’s three-week long massacre of 1,200 Palestinians in Gaza, including nearly 300 children, “has pushed [Elbit’s] stock close to the highest level since 2010 while its valuation on a price-to-earnings basis is near the most expensive in five years.” 

The rising stock is driven by speculation that the Haifa-based company will see increasing demand for its products from both the Israeli and foreign governments impressed by the performance of Elbit’s blood-soaked performance in Gaza.

Robert Fisk: Eight hundred (at time of print) dead Palestinians. But Israel has impunity (Independent)

Lets remember that the Palestinian death toll has now virtually DOUBLED… but our ability to process this proportionality has not changed.

Emphasis mine.

Note: Fisk writes with a certain orientalism and “we are the West” tone that can be disconcerting, but is one of the best versed, most centrist academically accurate reporters in the Middle East.
