Just received the following from General (Ret) James David who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby on the US political system and media:
Israelis kill 2 more Palestinians today in what’s called relative calm
Monday, August 1, 2011 11:10 AM
From: James David
Here we have the Israeli military making another raid in the West Bank, the same West Bank that Netanyahu says is not occupied, and shoots and kills two innocent Palestinians, a 22 year old law student and a member of thePalestinian military intelligence. There was no need for this violence and you can rest assured that the U.S. State Department will not come out to condemn this killing, something they would do in an instant if this was an Israeli settler killed by Palestinians. You will neither see this in any of your local or national media or hear it on Headline News, something again that you would see if it were the other way around. And now, if for some reason the Palestinians take revenge, you can rest assured that it will be labeled as a terrorist act and Israel’s response will be called retaliation.

2 Palestinians killed, 5 IDF soldiers wounded in West Bank raid
Israeli military spokeswoman says rioting broke out in Qalandiyah, a refugee camp near Ramallah, during ‘routine operation to arrest Palestinian suspects.’
Israeli soldiers shot dead two Palestinians at Qalandiyah refugee camp, north of Jerusalem, early Monday morning, medical officials and witnesses said.
Witnesses and the Israeli military said the incident occurred as soldiers entered the camp shortly after midnight on a “search and arrest” operation. Their entry into the camp sparked rioting, with residents throwing rocks and bottles at them.
The witnesses said the soldiers opened fire “indiscriminately,” immediately killing Mutasem Awad, 22, a law student at a local university, who was shot in the head, and Ali Khalifeh, 23, member of the Palestinian military intelligence, who was shot in the stomach and died on his way to hospital in Ramallah. A third person was injured in the back but reported stable.
The soldiers left the camp after the incident, arresting a number of residents. The Israeli military said five soldiers were lightly injured by the rock-throwing.
Residents said that Israel brought up reinforcements to a military checkpoint south of the camp between Jerusalem and Ramallah, as camp residents prepare to bury the dead. Clashes are expected to follow the funeral.
A spokesperson for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the killing, stating that it was an “Israeli attempt to create an atmosphere of escalation ahead of September”.
The raid came as Palestinians mark the first day of the holy fast month of Ramadan.
Even General David Petraeus (now head of the CIA) conveyed to Congress that US support of Israel against the Palestinians was a threat to US:
