lives not worth a DIME

Dr. Mads Gilbert, the Norwegian doctor noted in the previous post, states "we have clear evidence that the Israelis are using a new type of very high explosive weapons which are called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME) and are made out of a tungsten alloy.

These weapons have an enormous power to explode.

The power of the explosion dissipates very quickly and the strength does not travel long, maybe 10 meters, but those humans who are hit by this explosion, this pressure wave are cut in pieces.

This was first used in Lebanon in 2006, it was used here in Gaza in 2006 and the injuries that we see in Shifa [Hospital] now, many many of them I suspect and we all suspect are the effect of DIME weapons used by the Israelis.

On the long term, these weapons will have a cancer effect on those who survive. They will develop cancer we suspect. There has been very little research on this but some research has been among other places in the United States, which show that these weapons have a high tendency to develop cancer. So they kill and those who survive risk having cancer."

hi taina, the norwegian doctor is from tromso, in northern norway the town i am living now, and he has been talking incessantly in the media here about the reality of these new weapons and the the situation in the hospitals. unsurpirsingly the i. ambassador to norway was rolled out for a quote about his lack of balance. there have been large demonstrations here in norway, even in this small town. thanks for your letters to those dreadful canadian politicians. today even more horrible news of idf actions. love to your family.

thank you, Philip for posting. Both Walid and I are heartened by Western people who dare to speak out like this Norwegian doctor, and John Ging of the UN. They are to be commended for daring to speak against the accusations of anti-Semitism which inevitably follow.

In Canada we have few people in positions of power who are voicing against Israeli inhumanity.
