Gaza: Yes, it was genocide

SEEING IN PERSON MAKES IT CLEAR
A delegation of the European Parliament visited Gaza and saw for themselves the scale of devastation wrought by “Israel” over a 50 day period. Thirteen members saw for themselves the scorched earth policy (Dahiya doctrine) employed that intentionally destroyed infrastructure -water and power grid, healthcare system and government ministries- and tens of thousands of homes. Continue reading Gaza: Yes, it was genocide

Video: Tears of Gaza

An extraordinary, internationally acclaimed documentary about impact of the 2008 Gaza bombings on civilians and children, by filmmaker Vibeke Løkkeberg. After watching news reports from her home in Norway, Løkkeberg attempted to gain access to Gaza to report on events there, but discovered first-hand that international journalists were barred from entering the area. The denial of access further impelled her to report on the story, and she proceeded to gather raw footage from Palestinian cameramen and eye-witnesses living in Gaza who recorded bombings on smart phones.

Medical personnel claim Israel tested new weapons during war on Gaza

DIME, FLECHETTES AND UNKNOWN HORRIFIC WEAPONS
It’s established and admitted that “Israel” used banned DIME munitions and flechette shells, but “Doctors describe injuries inconsistent with previously used ammunition” in previous wars on Gaza. The wounds described are like something out of science fiction, but considering that the “Israeli” armaments industry is big business (and tied to the government), and the complete lack of respect for Gentile life, it’s not surprising that “Israel” would test its most advanced and diabolical weapons on Gaza. It wouldn’t be the first time. But the sights were horrifying and no doubt those paramedics and doctors will have nightmares for years to come. Continue reading Medical personnel claim Israel tested new weapons during war on Gaza

Residential tower levelled, neighbourhoods erased

MANIC FURY-BOMBING & DESTRUCTION OVERNIGHT
It’s not about Hamas, it’s not about tunnels, it’s not even about rockets. It’s about control, domination and hatred. Whatever party was in government, were there no tunnels, and when rockets never flew, “Israel” hate Palestinians in Gaza, al-Quds/Jerusalem and the ‘West Bank.’ It wants control, it wants absolute domination. The furious hatred of Palestinians is because they refuse to submit to that control and accept that Jewish domination, because Palestinians still live, because they refuse to leave. So Palestinians in Palestine are punished on a daily basis: siege/blockade of Gaza, torturous fascism in al-Quds, and belligerent occupation of the ‘West Bank’ along with the creeping illegitimate annexation. “Israel” seek to erase the history in which its Jews were only a tiny part, it destroyed whole towns and villages in historic Palestine, appropriated others, and in Gaza it is doing the same. These are in fact war crimes. Continue reading Residential tower levelled, neighbourhoods erased

Gaza genocide continues unabated: over 2100 dead, almost 1100 injured

Victims’ names and ages were compiled based on information released by the Gaza health ministry, while the circumstances of the deaths were taken from the ministry and local news sources.

The number includes 577 children, 260 women, and 101 elderly, since July 8, while more than 10854, including 3307 children, 2042 women and 401 elderly, have been injured with some losing limbs and others disabled for life, not to mention those who will die from cancer later on from the banned DIME munitions and potentially DU weapons employed as well. The amount of dead is underestimated as there are many whose bodies have still not been retrieved from the rubble and therefore their names are not listed.

The majority of the wounded are children, according to the Ministry of Health. All of the casualties listed below are victims of Israeli bombs dropped on Gaza since Tuesday July 8th. There is a running list of those murdered here, updated daily. For photos and facts about these real people with real lives, families, hopes and dreams, see humanizepalestine.org

Hamas agrees: one step closer to unity government signing Rome Statute

PALESTINE CAN NOW JOIN ICC
Hamas has signed agreement to accede to the Rome Statute and join the International Criminal Court. This gives it jurisdiction to accept a case filed by Palestine for war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated on its soil currently and retroactively to 2002, the date of the creation of the ICC. This is what “Israel” fear almost more than losing the patronage, protection and largess of the Americans. Colonialism, apartheid, genocide, violations of the Geneva Conventions and war crimes are likely charges to be levelled against the “Israel.” The UN Human Rights Council will be investigating these -of both “Israel” and resistance factions in Gaza, their report is due to be completed in March 2015.

Gaza: destroyed infrastructure, aid mission also targeted

VENEZUELAN AID CONVOY ATTACKED
After destroying the power and water/sanitation infrastructure, “Israel” now attacks convoys of relief supplies! The intent is to deprive Gazans of necessities: water for drinking, cooking and bathing, food and shelter. This is a violation of international law. Targeting non-combatants, and those carrying or delivering aid is also not just heinous and despicable, but criminal as well. This rogue state must be stopped!

Depth of depravity: bombing a funeral

SAVAGES STOP AT NOTHING FOR MORE BLOODSHED
Do you still have any illusions that “Israel” is a proper, civilised country? When it destroys an undefended civilian dwelling, killing civilians to get to one person, when it bombs protected facilities like hospitals and clinics and schools, those are war crimes committed by bloodthirsty barbarians. When it bombs a funeral for four members of one family, that is the depths of depravity. For the good of all of humanity and world peace, this country must be dissolved.

Gaza: Israel’s position of weakness and its false flag attack

CONTEXT IS EVERYTHING
Unsurprisingly, “Israel” wants to continue its siege and occupation, assassinations, and general repression and oppression of Palestine. So used to being able to bully, badger, wheedle, whine and blackmail in order to get its way it is unused to dealing with a strong opposition. The feckless Fatah and “Palestinian Authority” are merely lackeys and subcontractors, though Hamas is anything but. And Hamas is not going to abandon the legitimate and lawful rights of Palestine: sovereignty, which entails control over its land/sea and airspaces, imports and exports, and ingress and egress. With the ceasefire extended for 24 hours, “Israel” and its friendly-neighbourhood ally, al-Sisi of Egypt, are trying to divide-and-conquer the Palestinian delegation in order to avoid any concessions. But make no mistake, “Israel” is actually negotiation from a position of weakness. Continue reading Gaza: Israel’s position of weakness and its false flag attack

Israel desperate to avoid war crimes charges

Despite the fact that the patron of “Israel,” the USA, are not a ratified signatory of the Rome Statute, “Israel” have begged its patron to help it avoid war crimes charges. And it has employed other means designed to avoid the ICC as well: initiation of its own Commission of Inquiry, which of course will find no unlawful acts or wrongdoing. And that COI will drag on for years, hoping the world will forget the barbarity of the genocidal project on Gaza. We won’t. Continue reading Israel desperate to avoid war crimes charges

Video: Irish Senator David Norris – Statement on the situations in Gaza

5 August, 2014. David Norris said that entire families had been “obliterated” and called for immediate lifting of the embargo on Gaza. And, calling for Ambassador Modai to be expelled, observed: “He has his fingers in his ears all the time, and he just repeats slogans from Jerusalem.”

Gaza: International doctor describes injuries of banned weapons

BANNED WEAPONS CAUSE DISTINCTIVE INJURIES
Traumatic amputations, distinctive odour, melted flesh, piercings by nails, traumatic crushing and other highly specific and unusual wounds have been seen by multiple doctors both Gazan and from other countries (don’t worry, no gory photos). It is established that “Israel” have used DIME munitions, and it has admitted it has and is using flechette shells. But observers have noted that it is also using FAX munitions which are a sort of ‘poor man’s nuke’, essentially a thermobaric bomb that explodes in the air and is quite devastating to anything below it. It has been suggested by observers that “Israel” has used “Daisy Cutters” in this latest genocidal project on Gaza. The use of these weapons are a violation of the Laws of War Article 23 which prohibits the use of poison or poisoned weapons, and weapons that cause unnecessary suffering. DIMEs are known to cause cancer because of the tungsten contained in them which comes in contact with the victim. Flechettes are not suitable or legal for use in populated areas and are known to cause unnecessary suffering. FAX and Daisy cutter munitions are also not suitable for use in highly populated areas, especially when it is known that there are civilians in that location. Considering the totality of “Israel’s” history and actions, it is clear that these weapons are employed in order to destroy as much of the infrastructure and structures as possible, kill immediately as many civilians as possible, and ensure that those civilians that are wounded will either be maimed for life or die from their wounds or contract cancer and die from that. The goal is to destroy physically as much of Gaza as possible, and significantly ‘thin out’ the population of Gaza, specifically fertile women and children (the next generation). “Israel” call this “mowing the lawn.” That qualifies as genocide. Continue reading Gaza: International doctor describes injuries of banned weapons

Bad day: More fallout for Israel’s war on Gaza

FROM BOYCOTTS TO ICC
“Israel” have been used to unconditional support, thanks to the Jewish-owned and dominated media, the numerous Jewish lobbies and of course access to all raw data collected by the American NSA which gave it plenty of blackmail material with which to use in order to ensure that support by members of governments worldwide. But though it still receives the spying data, political discourse and media coverage have changed. And outside of the protection of its patron, America, a commission of inquiry has been initiated by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to investigate war crimes in Gaza. But also unlike in the past, “Israel’s” application of pressure wasn’t able to skew the odds in its favour in the selection of persons on that commission. Continue reading Bad day: More fallout for Israel’s war on Gaza

Gaza: Amid new ceasefire talks, death toll hasn’t ceased

Victims’ names and ages were compiled based on information released by the Gaza health ministry, while the circumstances of the deaths were taken from the ministry and local news sources.

Nearly 10000 have been injured, including children and women, with some losing limbs and others disabled for life, not to mention those who will die from cancer later on from the banned DIME munitions and potentially DU weapons employed as well. The amount of dead is underestimated as there are many whose bodies have still not been retrieved from the rubble and therefore their names are not listed.

“Day of Rage” across world shows overwhelming support for Gaza

PEOPLE SUPPORT GAZA, DEMAND END TO GENOCIDE
Now the governments of the world have no illusions as to the wishes of the populace they govern. We demand the end to the siege of Gaza, to the genocide, to the occupation of Palestine and full sovereignty. And will not be silent, we will not rest until that occurs. No amount of Jewish pressure and lobbies drown out the sound of our call for Palestinian freedom. We demand the end to “Israeli” impunity, to hold it accountable for its many crimes.

Israel, Jewish groups fear truth in UK

TRUTH IS LIGHT SHINING ON ITS WAR CRIMES
“Israel” has a hasbara (propaganda) machine that is well-oiled, well-funded and has infiltrated all Western countries, media and university campuses, and has think-tanks as well as is able to harness the Jewish community groups to exert pressure on governments. But this propaganda and pressure can only go so far. In the past these Jewish pressure groups would donate generously to political parties in exchange for fealty and favours later on. And when it didn’t materialise or a member stepped out of line by using a term that made Jews uncomfortable (read: not putting them and “Israel” above all other considerations, particularly the country in whose government they are in), the propaganda machine and pressure groups spring into action. Continue reading Israel, Jewish groups fear truth in UK

Guernica in Gaza

MESS OF WARFARE, DIRTY POLITICS
Everyone knows that one little tiny desert state in the Mediterranean is the client state of the United States. Everyone knows that it is armed to the eyeballs, lavished obscene amounts of the tax-payers money and diplomatically shielded from any and all legal consequences in the fora designed to solve international disputes and hold bad actors accountable. Yes, I mean the Jewish military state. Everyone also knows that the client state has also been shielded from actually having to behave as any other civilised nation would be required to be.

As ICC case looms, Israel panicking and preparing its defense

BEGGING THE AMERICANS TO SAVE THEM
According to published reports, Prime Minister Netanyahu implored a delegation of “Israel-firster” lawmakers from America to help keep his country out of the ICC. No doubt the contingent of willing traitors will do their utmost to accommodate him. Meanwhile the military of his country is said to be “gearing up” for the imminent war crimes case at the Hague.

Gaza: Were war crimes committed by Israel or not?

SPECULATION BY EVERYONE, EXPERTS WEIGH IN
Gaza - tiny little boy trying to be brave by himselfWhile most people have never heard of the Laws of War, it is an instinctual reaction to recoil in horror from the barbaric and savage attacks “Israel” has wrought upon Gaza. Intentional destruction of civil infrastructure, attacking protected civil facilities such as hospitals, schools, banks and mosques, as well as outright targeting of civilians are obviously objectively and morally wrong, laws or no laws. Every parent who sees the images of dead children, injured and terrified children and ponders how many are now homeless and orphaned cannot help but be moved. But there are laws that govern conduct in wars, and all countries and parties to a conflict (in the case of non-state actors, and in this case of a non-sovereign State of Palestine). Violation of these laws are war crimes. But what to the experts say about “Israel’s” choice of targets and slaughtering of entire families? As the State of Palestine is poised to accede to the Rome Statute and drag “Israel” to the Hague, their insight, knowledge and opinions are timely and informative. Continue reading Gaza: Were war crimes committed by Israel or not?

Use of barrel bombs show Israel’s desperation

CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS NOT ENOUGH
As more information emerges from the deadly genocidal project on Gaza by “Israel” the facts show the increasing desperation of the latter’s military. It’s toy “soldiers” -even their best- could not be victorious against Palestinian resistance fighters on the field and were routed at every turn. It could only kill from afar with fighter jets, gun boats and tanks. But it has now been made clear that its desperation mounted enough to opt for unconventional weapons, the kind that when used in Syria, have caused international outcry. This also shows that the intent of the military state was not to destroy tunnels or Hamas or stop rockets, it was to destroy Gaza. Continue reading Use of barrel bombs show Israel’s desperation

Lack of cooperation with investigation won’t protect Israel from ICC

STONEWALLING WON’T WORK.
The Foreign Ministry of “Israel” has advised Prime Minister Netanyahu not to cooperate with any UN investigation into war crimes the country committed in its genocidal project in Gaza. But this tactic will not shield the military state from prosecution of war crimes. In fact, the overt lack of cooperation shows the need to hide information that show war crimes were committed. Continue reading Lack of cooperation with investigation won’t protect Israel from ICC

Fresh massacres in Gaza, desalination plant hit

As the “humanitarian ceasefire” ended “Israel” opened fire on a group of civilians in Rafah queued up to get some water, which is extremely scare in Gaza. Also, reports of a group of children who were playing on the roof of the Oweida family home were targeted and attacked. Two children dead, 5-y-o Amal Oweida and her brother 12-y-o Mohammed Oweida, with reports of critical injuries as well. Two children, Amal Eweeda, 5 & Mohammed Eweeda 12 were also killed. Additionally, a school shelter in Central Gaza is reportedly evacuating after receiving a phone call from invaders that they plan to shell the school and nearby mosque.
