July 19th 64: Great Fire of Rome begins
On this day in 64 AD, a fire began in the merchant area of Rome and soon swept across the rest of the famed city. The fire burned for six days, and destroyed much of Rome in the process. Some have claimed, though it is debated, that the infamously insane Emperor Nero failed to do anything to control the fire and merely ‘fiddled while Rome burned’. It has not yet been determined whether the fire was caused by accident or arson, but it has been suggested that Nero began the fire himself and made Christians a scapegoat. Indeed, after the fire Nero did take the opportunity to blame the devastation on Rome’s Christian population, thus beginning one of the most intense and prolonged persecutions of the period - the so-called Neronian persecution. However, modern scholars have begun to doubt this old story of Nero’s role in starting the fire.

New York City, July 9, 2014
As of last night, Israel has murdered at least 41 Palestinians, including 13 children, injured more than 100 people and deliberately targeted at least 60 homes. The bombing of the open-air prison that is Gaza continues unabated with the full support, blessing and funding of the US government. Entire families have been massacred, children’s legs blown off, full blocks leveled—all to the sickening glee of the Zionist state.
Yesterday, thousands took to the streets of NYC to stand with the people of Palestine.
There is no middle ground here. You are on the side of the oppressor, or you stand with the oppressed.

The rockets may be above us,
but they have forgotten that
Allah is above them. ~ A Palestinian child.

“Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not.”

May He give justice to the Muslims, ya Allah we call for your help, forgive the Muslims ya Allah, send out your Help just like how you have helped the Muslims during the battle of Badr!-

NOT EVEN SATAN could have thought this up. Israelis cheering on massacres likes its a sport.
Contrary to what the media tell you this is how safe they are from ‘khamas rockets’ and this is how little regard they have for human life.
They wll not stop until they wipe Palestine off the map. The ethic cleansing of Palestine continues. Israel is targeting babies, children, women and men - no one is excluded - while the world sits by and watches.
Not so much as a squeak from Obama. Or anyone. They only care about Israeli lives.
There is no lower than this.
