The Israeli occupation of Palestine, the blockade of Gaza and the continuing expansion of Jewish Settlements is one of a continuing story of the tragic suffering of Palestinians since 1945. The crucial question is how to confront this and make a difference. The firing of rockets into Israel seems to be madness as it has resulted in Israel taking action that has made the Palestinians suffer more as they have faced slaughter amounting to war crimes, and it clearly does not work.
 
The only way to resolve this issue is through nonviolent means of resistance against Israel. Indeed in a poll in 2013 showed that this was the overwhelming choice of the Palestinian people. In that poll, 80 percent of Palestinians supported nonviolent means of “resistance” against Israel.
 
About 60% said that military operations harm Palestinian national interests and the proportion of Palestinians who support military operations against Israel dropped from 50% in December 2012 to 31% in this poll. Moreover, support for firing rockets from the Gaza Strip at Israel dropped sharply; while 74% indicated their approval in December 2012, the current figure (in 2013) stood at 38%, the poll showed.
 
So why does Hamas chose to ignore their own people and engage in military conflict against a perceived enemy that has at its disposable overwhelming power.  
 
One reason is that Hamas support was on the decline amongst the Palestinians as one poll showed. When support declines in a crisis environment then taking drastic action is the way many rulers have chosen throughout history to rally support. There was strong opposition in the UK to the invasion of Iraq but Tony Blair went ahead anyhow as he knew once he did it then people would rally round the flag. And that is what Hamas seems to be doing right now using force against Israel to make people again rally around them in Gaza.
 
But that is not the way and the Palestinians are right in wanting non-violent resistance as against an overwhelming force such as the Israeli military, it is the only way. But the political leaders of Hamas do not see it that way as they rush to muster support for their own leadership.
 
And to our shame the West stands by and does not give the Palestinian people the support they need. If the Palestinians want non-violence, they also want dignity and their own land and we should be helping much more than we are.

Iberian Peninsula at Night

One of the International Space Station crew members recorded this early evening photo of the entire Iberian Peninsula (Spain, Portugal and Andorra) on July 26, 2014. Part of France can be seen at the top of the image and the Strait of Gibraltar is visible at bottom, with a very small portion of Morocco visible near the lower right corner.

On Aug. 24, 2014, the sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 8:16 a.m. EDT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the flare, which erupted on the left side of the sun. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. This flare is classified as an M5 flare. M-class flares are ten times less powerful than the most intense flares, called X-class flares.

Pictured here is a close-up of a moderate flare on Aug. 24, 2014, shows light in the 131 and 171 Angstrom wavelengths. The former wavelength, usually colorized in teal, highlights the extremely hot material of a flare. The latter, usually colorized in gold, highlights magnet loops in the sun's atmosphere.

Observations by our Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope of several stellar eruptions, called novae, firmly establish these relatively common outbursts almost always produce gamma rays, the most energetic form of light. More: go.nasa.gov/1k9V60p

UNAIDS is participating in a number of events during the International AIDS Conference, the world’s largest gathering of HIV researchers, policymakers, activists and people living with HIV held in Melbourne, Australia, from July 20-25.

AIDS 2014 opened overshadowed by an international tragedy. During a ceremonial inauguration to welcome the conference participants to the city, the organizers expressed deep sadness for the loss of the many delegates travelling on flight MH17.

Really what on earth or what not on earth !?
The disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370 is not the first time a plane has vanished without a trace. Here are eight other cases of plane disappearances.
