Settler shoots Palestinian in Hebron, IDF drop a knife next to victim.
Israeli statistics state that 3,500 ‘Israelis’ have been killed and 25,000 have been wounded as a result of Palestinian violence since Israel was founded in 1948.
Forms of terrorism have included hostage-taking, plane hijackings, stone-throwing, stabbing, shootings, and bombings.
According to Israeli Human Rights groups in Judea and Samaria [Palestine West Bank] , 500 Israeli civilians were killed by Palestinians from 2000 to 2012, in Israel, and another 254 Israeli civilians were killed in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
One of those human rights groups reported that the main argument used to justify violence against civilians is that “all means are legitimate in fighting for independence against a foreign occupation”.
They criticized this argument, saying it is completely baseless and contradicts the principle of international humanitarian law.
“According to this principle, civilians are to be protected from the consequences of warfare, and any attack must discriminate between civilians and military targets.
This principle is part of international customary law; as such, it applies to every state, organization, and person, even those who are not party to any relevant convention.”
Six things Hashem hates; Seven are an abomination to Him: A haughty bearing, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A mind that hatches evil plots, Feet quick to run to evil, A false witness testifying lies, And one who incites brothers to quarrel. Proverbs 6:16-19
PALESTINIAN GENOCIDE: 5,100,000 Palestinians have been killed since 1948
For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “bear witness”, “zero tolerance for lying” and “never again to anyone”, anyone including the Indigenous Palestinian victims of the racist Zionist Palestinian Genocide – 2 million dead since 1936, 0.1 million from violence, 1.9 million from war-, expulsion- and occupation-derived deprivation; 7 million refugees; 4.1 million Occupied Palestinians deprived of ALL the human rights listed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights ; 6 million Palestinians forbidden to even live in the homeland continuously inhabited by their forbears to the very dawn of agrarian civilization; 0.9 million Palestinian children confined without charge or trial to what the Catholic Church and many others have described as Israel’s Gaza Concentration Camp for the asserted “crime” of being Indigenous Palestinians living in a tiny, remorselessly Zionist-bombed patch of Palestine.
From Afghanistan to Iraq to Syria and from Libya to Yemen, millions of innocent Muslim women and children have been murder, millions have been displaced and abused by invading U.S.-dominated Western armies on behalf of Israel.
The Zionists are exterminating the world’s Muslims. Even Hitler did not do that to the Jews. Hitler allowed the Zionist minions to terrorize the Jews into fleeing out of Europe to Palestine so the imperialists could fleece it. Hitler knew that.
“It seems that nothing the Israeli Government ever does to the Palestinians will meet with meaningful condemnation from Western governments.
So long as the theft of Palestinian land is done quietly and in small slices, and so long as summary killings of Palestinians by Israeli soldiers are done just a few at a time, the USA, Britain, France, Germany etc. will turn blind eye [and allow Israel to get away with mass murder of the Palestinian people]”.Martin Odoni.
For nearly two weeks in May 2021, and again for several days in June and July, U.S.-supplied Israeli warplanes (F-35s) attacked and levelled high-rise residential buildings, dwellings, and vital civilian infrastructures in Gaza.
Unindicted war criminal Benyamin Netanyahu said: I’m “determined” to keep terrorizing and massacring Palestinians throughout Palestine until our diabolical Jewish aim of final solution – the extermination of the Palestinian people – is achieved. Palestinians reserve the legal right to respond to these attacks and hold the Israelis accountable.
The Israeli attacks on Gaza began after the Israeli Police (the Israeli Gestapo) and the heavily armed Zionist militias – Jewish supremacist colonist gangs, or “Israeli settlers” in Western parlance (also known as the Brownshirts in reference to the Nazis Storm troopers) – invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque teargassing and wounding more than 3000 Muslim worshipers with stun grenades and bullets during the month of Ramadhan.
They are armed and have the full support of the Jewish Gestapo Police. In addition, the PA (Palestinian Authority” – by name only) attack dogs play a criminal role as an auxiliary force for Israel.
In coordination with Israeli Gestapo police, the PA attack dogs violently attacking Palestinians and suppressing Palestinian resistance to help Israel enforce its brutal occupation of Palestine.
Funded and trained by the United States and EU, the PA exists to protect Israel and colonist Jews, and to police Palestinians on behalf of Israel.
Most of the Jewish colonist gangs are recent arrivals from the U.S. and Eastern Europe, including the most extremist Russian and Polish neo-Fascist elements.
Furthermore, the ruling by the Israeli magistrate court that 19 Palestinian families from Batan al-Hawa, be expelled from their homes to make way for “Israeli settlers”.
Among their leaders is Bentzi (or Ben-Zion) Gopstein who was indicted by an Israeli court in 2019 on charges of incitement to terrorism, violence and racism against the Palestinians.
His close allay is Itamar Ben-Gvir, another indicted Jewish extremist, terrorist and racist.
They are financed and armed by American and British taxpayer’s money.
Palestinians see these “expulsions”, including the expulsion of Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah and the raids into Al-Aqsa Mosque,” as part of Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and “Judaization” of East Jerusalem.
It is a crime against humanity under international law, according to a recent report by Human Rights Watch – a leading player in Western “human rights” propaganda industry.
The Palestinians are defending their right to exist, their homes and their homeland, and had it not been for their resistance, Jewish colonist gangs supported by the deafening silence of the global media would have taken control of many places in Jerusalem.
As Tariq Baconi observes in the May 2021 London Review of Books: “The only way to explain events on the ground, they say, is as settler-colonialism: Israel is dispossessing indigenous Palestinians of lands they have lived on for generations.
Palestinians dispute the ownership claims of the settler groups, arguing that Israeli courts have no jurisdiction over occupied Palestinian territory according to international law – a plausible claim, as the seizure of property and transfer of populations by an occupying power is a war crime under the Rome Statute.”
Furthermore, Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem and in other parts of Palestine has been an ongoing Israel’s terror over the decades followed by periods of “quiet” and delays as international criticism grew and pressure on Israel increased.
The media paly their utmost criminal role by deflecting public attention away from Israel’s war crimes.
In the U.S., Zionists exercise a complete control over much of the media – including, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Telegram, etc.
It is also the case in Canada, much of Europe, Australia and in Russia, led by the extreme racist and anti-Muslims RT (Russian Tabloid or the Russian CNN) global propaganda.
For decades, the Zionist media have been distorting facts on the ground and fabricating excuses for continuing Israel’s terror and war crimes against the defenseless Palestinians.
The U.S.-dominated Western establishments big lie of “Israel has a right to defend itself” – repeated by Western political and media establishments – has become a disease that infects the brains of so many well-meaning people around the world.
As American thinker Malcom X observed: the media, as “the most powerful entity on earth has the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power.
Because they control the minds of [the] masses”. In addition to controlling the media, U.S. and Israeli Zionist supporters have turned the United Nations (UN) into Zionism’s most reliable tool.
The UN primary role is to legitimize and normalize Israel’s terror and war crimes.
From Iran to Afghanistan to Iraq and from Venezuela to Libya to Yemen, nearly all U.S.-sponsored tragedies have UN blessing.
In the last two decades, the UN – with its corrupt administration – has backed Israel’s annexation of Palestinian land and used by the media as a “legal” authority.
The media have depicted Israel’s terror against the Palestinians in simple terms: the Palestinian “terrorist group Hamas” has attacked the “Jewish state” which is “defending itself”; Israel is “responding” or “reacting” to Palestinian “provocation” and “escalation”; Palestinian “rockets” “killed” Israelis, but Palestinians “have died” from unnamed causes; Israel has “defense forces” and “security forces”, but Hamas has “militants”.
(‘The Savage Punishment of Gaza’, MediaLens, 25 May 2021. This is a must read).
“Hamas” is deliberately misused to demonise and strip Palestinians of their human identity.
It is a classic Zionist propaganda for Israeli to deflect attention away from their own provocation and violence by accusing its victims of “starting” it.
They are emulating Nazi propaganda to manipulate public opinion and sell Israel’s terror.
HAMAS, (Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, Islamic Resistance Movements) is not a “terrorist group”.
HAMAS are composed of a united front of various factions, including Palestinians Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
They are legitimate resistance movements of oppressed indigenous Palestinians – Muslims and Christians.
HAMAS are also the administrative authority of Gaza that manage a highly efficient system of social networks and charities serves the 2.2 million Palestinians of Gaza.
The rest of the Palestinians live in Nazis’-like Ghettos throughout Jewish-occupied Palestine.
“There’s been a whole attempt to make HAMAS the centre of the reporting.
And that’s nonsense. As if HAMAS is a peculiar demon.
In fact, HAMAS and its military wing are part of [The Palestinian Resistance]; a resistance that was provoked by the Israelis.
The real demon in this is Israel.
But it’s not simply Israel. I mean, this is as much a British and American war against Palestine, as it is an Israeli one.
It is a war against the people of Palestine who are doing one thing – and that is exercising their moral and legal right to resist a brutal occupation [by a terrorist entity]”, said John Pilger. HAMAS is almost always covered in a negative light.
The Palestinians are largely defenceless people who are abused, dispossessed, and murdered by Israeli supremacist Jews and their Western financiers.
They are legally resisting against Israel’s colonialism, ethnic cleansing and the dispossession of their land.
It is a right enshrined in international law – and an inalienable right that any nation would defend.
Israel warning to the media is that any sympathy towards the Palestinians will invite Israel’s terror.
A case in point is the deliberate destruction of Al-Shorouk building housing the Associate Press, Al-Jazeera and other media offices (to eliminate any independent media observers on the ground in Gaza) show Israel’s fear of the extent of its crimes reaching the outside world.
Gaza is the largest open-air Concentration Camp (Konzentrationslager) in the world.
It is completely controlled by Israel military from land, sea and air. 75% of the 2.2 million (50% children under the age of 18) Palestinian population of Gaza are refugees who in 1948 fled Israel’s terror or were forcefully expelled from Palestine in what is now called “Israel” – in some cases months after the formal cease-fire.
Just after the Belford declaration in 1917, Zionist Jews went into Palestine and shot over 11,000 innocent Palestinian men, women, and children in cold blood JUST as a sign of force (For more see. Behind The Hatred –
The Discovery Channel, 3-hour version). Since 1920, supremacist Zionist Jews have displaced over 800,000 innocent Palestinian men, women, and children.
According to The New York Times, they have murdered tens of thousands more and tortured more than 300,000 since 1948.
Every time the Palestinians fight back, they are accused of being “terrorists”.
I think we are aware of who the “terrorists” are.
The Red Cross in Jerusalem gave a shocking account of the massacre in Deir Yassin, one of several hundreds of villages raped and destroyed by Jewish terrorists and immigrants.
In his official report, Jacque De Reynier, the Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Jerusalem described as he arrived at one village (Deir Yassin) on the second day and saw “the mopping up,” as one of the Jewish terrorists put it to him.
It had been done with machine guns, then grenades, and was finished off with knives.
The Jews decapitated some of the victims and fatally maimed 52 children in sight of their mothers.
They cut open 25 pregnant women’s wombs and butchered the babies in front of them. . The Palestinian Nakba continues at a slower pace in broad daylight.
Since 2006, Israel has been subjecting Gaza to a military siege and blockade for, which has left the Concentration Camp effectively unliveable (Jacobin).
“Israel has intentionally made Gaza unlivable .
Zionist thieves left the Palestinians without resources.
The only way Gaza can exert pressure on Israel is by firing home-made projectiles (“rockets”).
If they peacefully protest their conditions, they’re massacred just the same.
If they do nothing, Israel continues to blockade them, erode their living conditions while ethnically cleansing the rest of their land”, said journalist Abby Martin.
The recent Israeli attacks caused the death of more than 280 Palestinians, including at least 70 children and 40 women massacred in cold blood, and drove 52,000 people from their homes.
The mass murder of Palestinian children was described in the Israeli media as a “price of war”, echoing Bill Clinton’s former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright – an ardent pro-Israel Zionist Jew – who famously cackled that “it was worth it” when she was asked about the deaths of 600,000 Iraqi children by U.S.-enforced sanctions on food, water and medicines.
Many thousands of Palestinians have been wounded.
More than 20,000 Palestinians are now homeless.
On the Israeli side, there are 12 dead and very limited damage to Israeli buildings caused by home-made Palestinian projectiles.
Most projectiles were intercepted by Israeli air defenses and Israelis are well protected in fortified bomb shelters under their homes.
The disproportionate deaths among Palestinian civilians indicate a one-sided mass murder.
The comparative death toll tells of the one-sided nature of the Israeli violence.
It is preposterous to equate the criminal violence of a highly armed, destructive and murderous terrorism entity like Israel with that of a nearly defenseless and non-destructive resistant movement, HAMAS.
The misleading equivalence that this designation relies upon is an Amnesty International’s report which essentially states that using homemade missiles against heavily armed forces is a war crime.
In other words, “[HAMAS] are criminalised for their technological inferiority”.
The use of U.S.-supplied warplanesby the Israeli regime serves to test F-35s warplanes and their pilots in real war action using Gaza homes and entire Palestinian families as targets on a firing range.
According to the UN, more than 94 buildings in Gaza, comprising of 461 housing and commercial units. Six hospitals, 53 schools and fifteen medical centres were deliberately targeted and destroyed with U.S.-supplied bombs and missiles.
Electricity lines were brought down, and nearly half of Gaza’s 2.2 million inhabitants lack potable water because desalination plants cannot function without power.
Gaza’s aquifers have long been polluted by sea water, chemically engineered sewage known as “skunk” and agricultural run-off.
This round of indiscriminate attacks is far worse than previous attacks in 2014 and 2009.
Despite all this and more, the UN refrained from condemning Israel and holding Israel accountable for wanton destruction and premediate war crimes.
The French NGO, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) warned, that Israel is pushing Gaza into a catastrophe: “The Israeli bombing is incredibly heavy and stronger than previous bombing campaigns.
Relentless bombing has destroyed many homes and buildings all around us.
It’s not safe to go outside, and no one is safe inside, people are trapped.
Emergency health workers are taking incredible but necessary risks to move around”.
As Tama Nasser observed: “The goal is to deliberately inflict such pain and suffering on the civilian population and society at large as to deter anyone from resisting against Israel’s occupation. This can be prosecuted as a war crime.”
It was recently reported, that Israel’s Defence minister Benny Gantz threatened more destruction and killings than he ordered in Gaza in 2014.
“No person, area or neighbourhood in Gaza is immune [from Israel’s terror]”, warned war criminal Gantz.
In 2014, Gantz was Israel’s chief of staff commanding the51-day terror that killed more than 2,251 Palestinians were killed.
This figure includes 1,462 Palestinian civilians, including 299 women and 551 children.
The ongoing Israel’s terror and slaughter of Palestinian civilians who were being (as always) deliberately targeted has been perceived by most of the world population, including many Americans, as a slow-paced genocide, even when Western regimes do not apply genocide to non-Jews.
“The numerous incidents of killing entire families in Israeli bombings in Gaza – Parents and children, babies, grandparents, siblings – attest that these were not mistakes.
The bombings follow a decision from higher up, backed by the approval of military jurists”, as Amira Hass observes in Ha’aretz.
“Never in modern history [not even by the Nazis standard] has there been such a merciless, sustained campaign of collective punishment like the one that Israel has meted out against the Palestinian people of Gaza.
And that punishment is horrifying enough, just when you consider the humanitarian consequences of the blockade and the poisoning of the environment and the water supply”, writes reporter Jeremy Scahill.
The ritual of Israeli massacres of Palestinians are just one part of carefully planned Palestinian genocide. Gaza is used as a laboratory for Israel’s scientific racism where the Palestinians are the guinea pigs in a variety of Nazis-like experiments and a testing laboratory for Israel’s terror.
Even when not committing full-scale massacre in broad daylight, Israel cuts power supply and restricts the delivery of fuel, medical supplies and building materials available to Palestinians to build their homes.
In other words, the Palestinians population were put on strict diet of death and survival.
According to Dr Sara Roy, a senior researcher at the Centre for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University: “Innocent human beings, most of them children, are slowly being poisoned by the water they drink and likely by the soil in which they plant.”
The result of this criminal act is that “about 10 percent of Palestinian children in Gaza under age 5 have had their growth stunted by malnutrition. In addition, anaemia is widespread, affecting over two-thirds of infants, 58.6 per cent of schoolchildren, and over a third of pregnant mothers.”
The Gaza blockade is an act of war, hence Israel enforcing it cannot claim to be acting defensively in response to anything that happened after the start of the blockade.
How can Israel claim self-defense against malnourished and thirsty captive people?
The U.S. regime blocked three recent attempts by the United Nations Security Council to demand a ceasefire.
This is while the Zionist U.S. President Joe Biden signed off on supplying $735 million dollars-worth gift of JDAM-equipped bombs and missiles to fuel Israel’s terror, the very kind of munitions that are killing Palestinians and causing wanton destruction to their homes and vital infrastructures.
By encouraging Israel to commit war crimes and supplying it with weapons, the U.S., Britain and the EU are giving cover to an outlaw terrorist entity and evincing deep-seated racism against the Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims in general.
It is worth noting that, without U.S. subsidy there is no Israel.
President Biden knew Israel was not running out of weapons, but he wanted to facilitate the Israeli intention to exterminate the Palestinians and shows his loyalty to his Jewish financiers.
“These Israeli atrocities are being funded by billions of our own American tax dollars while communities like mine in St. Louis are hurting and are in need of life-affirming investment here at home”, said the U.S. Representative Cori Anika Bush (D. Missouri).
With its massive arsenal of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, Israel poses the greatest threat to world’s peace and Humanity.
Israel, as a terrorist entity that espouses a Nazi-like ideology is a serial violator of international law and guilty of countless war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Israel is an occupying terrorist entity that has been terrorizing and dispossession the Palestinian people for hundred years.
Israel, and its Jewish terrorist gangs have been carrying out a war against the Palestinians for over 100 years, so Israeli self-defense against Palestinians is a logical impossibility (Electronic Intifada).
In fact as an occupying power, Israel does not have a legal right to claim self-defense against the people it is illegally occupying their land and terrorising them on daily basis (Truthout).
The Israeli (endorsed by the U.S. and the EU regimes) blockade has severely and deliberately restricted the flow of food, fuel, medicine, water and all essential goods to civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law.
These illegal unilateral coercive measures have caused human rights violations by obstructing access to the updated health systems, technology and humanitarian aid needed to sustain global infrastructure, according to the UN Human Rights Council.
As Avraham Burg, former Speaker of the Israeli Knesset and former Chairman of the World Zionist Organization told the New York Times: “… it was the outgrowth of years of blockades and restrictions in Gaza, decades of occupation in the West Bank, and decades more of discrimination [and racism] against Arabs within the [entity of Fascist] Israel.
All the enriched uranium was already in place. But you needed a trigger.
And the trigger was the [Jewish attacks on] al-Aqsa Mosque.” Burg was referring to the provocations mentioned above by the Jewish Gestapo Police and the Zionist militias or Jewish colonists.
Last night, Israeli Occupation Forces brutalized Palestinians, teargassed worshippers, shot bullets inside Al-Aqsa Mosque, beat women, and violated every moral and international rule there is, while armed Zionist settlers roamed free. Here is an infuriating thread… pic.twitter.com/oRwEjx8e0c
According to a newUN Report: “In 2020, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) documented 771 incidents of settler violence causing injury to 133 Palestinians and damaging 9,646 trees and 184 vehicles mostly in the areas of Hebron, Jerusalem, Nablus and Ramallah.
Already, during the first three months of 2021, more than 210 settler violent incidents were recorded, with one Palestinian fatality.” The UN Report also noted: “Settlers’ violence was predominantly ideologically motivated and primarily designed to illegally take Palestinian land but also to intimidate and terrorize the Palestinians.
The violence and intimidation often prevent Palestinians from accessing and cultivating their land and creates a coercive environment pressuring Palestinians to stay away from certain areas or even move.”
According to the Israeli Information Centre for Human Rights in Palestine (B’Tselem): “Thousands of testimonies, videos and reports, as well as many years of close monitoring by B’Tselem and other organizations, reveal that Israeli security forces [the Jewish Gestapo] not only allow settlers to harm Palestinians and their property as a matter of course – they often provide the perpetrators escort and back-up.
In some cases, they even join in on the attack.
After more than 25 years of this work, there is no escaping the conclusion that the authorities merely make a show of law enforcement in this context and that, with few exceptions, they have no interest in seriously investigating settler violence against Palestinians.”
B’Tselem further added: “Violent actions of settlers against Palestinians are not exceptions to a rule.
Rather, they form part of a broader strategy in which the state colludes, as it stands to benefit from the result.
Over time, this unchecked violence is gradually driving Palestinians from more and more locations in the West Bank, making it easier for the state to take over land and resources.”
People should open their eyes to the Israelis and stop comparing Israel with Nazi Germany and Apartheid South Africa.
The comparison is very misleading.
It is designed to lessen Israel’s terror and violence against defenseless and captive Palestinians.
Israel ticks all the boxes of Fascism and Apartheid. It espouses a Nazi-like ideology coupled with an extreme Apartheid.
In an interview in 1990, the well-known Israeli intellectual Yeshayahu Leibowitz warned that Israel was becoming “a Judeo-Nazi state.”
The Jews ran the camps there, and now in Palestine.
Adding that “the Israeli Defense Force, armed to the teeth by American weapons, has assassinated 150 [Palestinian] children in the past two years alone,” Leibowitz insisted that the word “Nazi” was the only appropriate word to describe its conduct:
“The minister of Defense [Yitzhak Rabin] who gave the order to break the arms and legs of Palestinian prisoners is a Nazi…And the president of the High Court [Moshe Landau], who judged that torturing prisoners was allowed, is a Nazi.”
In fact, Israel is worse than Nazi Germany.
As mentioned earlier, Israel is unconditionally supported militarily, financially and diplomatically by the world’s most militarized regime, the U.S. regime.
Unlike Israel, Nazi Germany was at war with large military powers (e.g., USSR, Britain) on many fronts.
Israel is and has been at war with largely unarmed and defenseless captive people that are legally resisting Israel’s daily terror and war crimes.
Furthermore, Nazi Germany crimes have been highly exaggerated, and the Nazis are demonized to give impetus and sympathy to Jews and justify Israel’s century-long terror and war of extermination (slow-paced genocide) against the Palestinians.
The so-called “Jewish Holocaust” gives special status to Jewish victims of the Nazis above their inferior Slavic and Romani fellow-sufferers so as to give grounds for genocidal Zionism in Palestine. It is this “Holocaust” narrative that has been central to Zionism’s endeavor.
Critics have labelled the tendency of Jews to see themselves as having suffered more than the Palestinians as “competitive victimhood”.
Indeed, Jewish organizations world-wide are motivated to engage in competitive victimhood not only to exert power and provide cover for Israeli war crimes but also to excuse their own ethnocentric manipulations.
In supporting and appeasing Israel, U.S. and European political and media establishments are complicit today in Israel’s crimes against humanity akin to those of Nazi Germany.
The entire Western narrative of the creation of Israel as a “homeland” for the “Jewish people” outside Europe at the expense of the Palestinian people is a fabrication and a distortion of truth .
Why Jews need a homeland?
Why can’t they just live wherever they were born, just like, Christians, Buddhists and Muslims?
It is an insult to compare Germans with racist and violent Israelis.
Germany of 1930s and 1940s was a descent and educated society and remains so today.
You will never find a Nazi who was more violent and racist than Israeli supremacist Jews (Abby Martin, YouTube).
Martin’s interview exposes the dark underbelly of Jews’ anti-Arabs and anti-Muslims hate-filled propaganda machine.
Israeli supremacist Jews are calling for Palestinians’ deaths, shouting “Death to Arabs” with a Jewish rabbi saying: “I call on you to kill all Arabs!” and others using Facebook and Telegram to organize attack mobs.
A survey conducted by direct polls in Israel, found that 72% of Israeli Jews didn’t want Israel to negotiate a cease fire – they wanted Israel’s terror against the Palestinians to continue.
Israel’s apologists have the gall to warn us that it is racist and “anti-Semitic” to “hold Jews individually or collectively accountable for Israel’s terror and crimes” against the Palestinians.
It is preposterous accusation.
While there are outstanding decent Jews around the world who want nothing to do with Israel and its Fascistic policies, supremacist Jews individually and collectively make great efforts to support, finance and cover-up Israel’s crimes because Jews identify with Israel no matter how heinous and brutal Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians.
For example, Jewish leaders in Britain, including the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis are pressing the British government of Boris Johnson to classify all Palestinians in Gaza as terrorists and make them legitimate targets for Israel’s terror.
Anyone who advocating for Palestinian rights, including demonstrating against Israeli attacks on Gaza, the media consider it as a collective attack on Jews and “anti-Semitic”.
The myth of “anti-Semitism” is a fiction cynically recycled by the media every few years as a cover for Israel’s terror and brutality against the Palestinians.
A case in point is the former British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who was destroyed by British Jews (pro-Israel Jewish Lobby) and Zionist supporters of Israel.
It is an “organized campaign to turn reality upside down – to convert supporters of Israeli violence into victims and to blame the real victims – the defenceless Palestinians – for their own suffering.
The truth, there is no “anti-Semitism” against Jews, none exists.
There is widespread anti-Semitism against Muslims and Arabs promoted and paid for by the Zionist media.
Jews around the world should be ashamed of their support for a criminal terrorist entity masquerading as a “Jewish State” for all Jews.
They should publicly distant themselves from Israel and condemn Israel’s terror and crimes against the Palestinians.
The current Israeli leader, the extreme Fascist Naftali Bennett has routinely described Palestinian resisting Jewish occupation as terrorists and demanded that they should be shot on sight.
He has also boasted of killing Palestinians during his military service.
In 1980s, Bennett was heavily involved in “Operation Grapes of Wrath” in Lebanon, where his commando unit killed numerous civilians, and takes pleasure in recounting his participation in Israel’s war crimes.
In short, the new Israeli regime is more Fascist regime than its predecessors.
Bennett was described by Western and the Russian racist media as a “creative, dedicated and goal-oriented”, but when Iranian Judiciary Chief Sayed Ebrahem Raeisi won Iran’s presidential election by a big majority, he was labelled as a “hardliner” and accused of an allegedly “grave human rights abuses”.
Bennett as the new head of the Israeli gang of terrorists will soon be welcomed by Western leaders eager to show him their support against the Palestinian people.
In most civilized societies, Naftali Bennett would be arrested and charged with murder and war crimes.
The U.S. and U.S.-dominated regimes have the audacity to criticize China for allegedly committing “human rights” abuses against its Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region.
There is no evidence to support the allegations against China.
But overwhelming evidence shows the same U.S.-dominated regimes (including, Israel, Australia, Britain, Canada, India, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, among others) are guilty of egregious human rights abuses.
Arrests and torture of dissidents are widespread in the U.S. and in Europe.
The incarceration and torture of Julian Assange is a case in point.
China is not stealing Syria’s oil and selling it off, like pirates.
China is not setting Syria’s grain fields on fire and depriving the Syrian people of their own food.
The U.S. and U.S.-dominated regimes are.
Of course, these regimes do not practice what they preach.
If these regimes are really concern about “human rights” abuses of Muslims, they should start dealing with Israel, the world’s biggest abuser of human rights.
For decades, hard evidence shows these same regimes have colluded with successive Israeli Fascist regimes in terrorizing and killing Muslims daily.
From Afghanistan to Iraq to Syria and from Libya to Yemen, millions of innocent Muslim women and children have been murder, millions have been displaced and abused by invading U.S.-dominated Western armies on behalf of Israel.
The 2003 criminal U.S.-British invasion of Iraq on behalf of Israel was the most barbaric act of terrorism in human history.
It was premediated aggression against defenceless people suffering from barbaric and genocidal sanctions that targeted women and children.
The ongoing 10-year U.S.-sponsored terrorism war against Syria is another Western barbaric aggression on behalf of Israel.
The world must not remain silent on the unconscionable crimes that Israel has wantonly engaged in against the defenseless Palestinians or accept the status of Israel as a victim.
Israel is neither a democracy nor the victim.
Israel is a terrorist entity built on racism, ethnic cleansing, dispossession and genocide.
Only Israel’s defeat will restore world’s peace. It exists as a terrorism entity masquerading as a “Jewish State” that is carrying out a slow-paced genocide of the Palestinians.
The U.S., Europe and Russia must end their support for Israel’s terror and force it to stop the slow-paced genocide of the Palestinian people.
It is imperative that the international community redouble its efforts to support the Palestinian people in their legitimate struggle against this violent and oppressive terrorism entity, and in the process, help deliver freedom and justice.
On this day seven years ago, Israel launched one of its deadliest military offensives against the Gaza Strip in recent history.
The offensive left 2,251 people dead, with more than 11,000 wounded, according to Palestinian and UN sources.
Seven years on, Gaza is still subject to intense attacks by Israel as well as the ongoing blockade which has been enforced for more than 11 years.
One of the deadliest attacks was the one launched between 11 and 12 May 2021 when 266 people killed including 67 children, 41 women, 16 elderly.
What: 2014 Israelis offensive against Gaza
When: 8 July – 26 August 2014
Where: The occupied Gaza Strip
Israel’s military offensive on the Gaza Strip took place against the backdrop of a second Palestinian unity government being formed in early June by the Islamic Resistance Movement — Hamas — in the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.
Threatened by the reconciliation between the two main Palestinian factions, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the PA had to choose between peace with Hamas and peace with Israel.
Ten days later, on 12 June, three Israeli settlers went missing in the West Bank, an incident for which Israel blamed Hamas, despite providing no evidence to back the allegation.
Netanyahu also stated that the kidnapping proved that the unity pact between the Palestinian factions could not be endorsed.
High ranking Hamas officials denied involvement and the PA attributed the abductions to the Qawasameh clan, a group within Hamas that has frequently acted against the party’s policies.
Israeli historian Ilan Pappé has said that the motivation for the kidnapping was the murder of two Palestinian teenagers by Israeli forces in May 2014; the autopsy report which showed that the teens were killed by Israeli soldiers’ live fire had been made public the day before the kidnapping.
In the aftermath of the abduction, Israel launched a crackdown on alleged Hamas associates in the West Bank.
Some 11 Palestinians were killed and dozens were wounded in the run up to 2 July, with hundreds arrested, many of whom had been freed in the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal.
The murder of a Palestinian teen by Israeli settlers then sparked widespread protests in the occupied territories.
Israel also bombarded the Gaza Strip, prompting some minor rocket fire from various factions in the besieged enclave.
After attempts to agree to a ceasefire failed, with Tel Aviv refusing to meet Hamas conditions that the siege be ended and prisoners released, on 7 July the Israeli military announced the start of Operative Protective Edge to “hit Hamas hard“.
Within the first 48 hours of the operation, Israel dropped 400 tonnes of bombs on Gaza. Over the next two months, some 6,000 air strikes were launched on the besieged 365 km2 of the coastal territory.
The subsequent bombardment displaced some 500,000 people; 300,000 civilians were forced to shelter in UNRWA schools. Electricity to hospitals was cut off, rendering thousands without basic medical care.
Hamas fired rockets towards Israel in response, but did little damage.
Lacking in precision guidance systems, the attacks were indiscriminate by default, but Hamas has said on many occasions that its rockets are always intended to hit military targets.
Conversely, Israel used its high-powered US-financed precision-guided arsenal to target civilian areas deliberately, claiming that militants were hiding in homes, schools and hospitals.
The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) also began a limited ground invasion, focusing on destroying tunnels used to transfer much-needed humanitarian supplies to the besieged population. The tunnels have been described as “Gaza’s lifeline”.
The offensive prompted outrage from the international community, with protests organized around the world in support of the Palestinians.
What happened next?
On 3 August, the IDF pulled most of its ground forces out of the Gaza Strip after completing the destruction of 32 tunnels.
A week later, a three-day truce negotiated by Egypt came into effect, which led to a series of brief ceasefires, before Israel and Hamas agreed to an end to hostilities on 26 August.
The “Gaza War” has had enduring consequences for the Strip’s two million inhabitants.
Over 2,250 Palestinians were killed, 500 of whom were children, and 11,000 were wounded, placing a huge strain on the already severely stretched medical sector.
Moreover, at least 20,000 buildings were destroyed in the Israeli bombardment, either reduced to rubble or rendered uninhabitable, including mosques, churches, hospitals and schools.
Pierre Krähenbühl, the Commissioner-General of UNRWA, appealed for £178 million ($295 million) in international aid towards its recovery operations, but little of the planned reconstruction has been completed.
The Israeli death toll was 67 soldiers and six civilians by the time of the ceasefire.
The UN affirmed in 2015 that Israel committed war crimes during the offensive due to its targeting of civilians areas.
Israel had refused to co-operate with the UN investigation, which it claimed had drawn its conclusions in advance.
The report supported the Palestinians in the filing of a petition to the International Criminal Court (ICC), which has yet to open a full investigation into the allegations, despite dossiers of evidence reportedly having been provided by the PA.
A two-year investigation by Israel’s official watchdog into the operation also revealed last year that the government failed to explore diplomatic solutions to prevent the seven-week conflict.
The 200-page report also criticized the Netanyahu government for ignoring several warnings by security services that the ongoing blockade in Gaza was escalating tensions and could lead to violence if not relaxed.
Four years down the line, the Palestinians in Gaza continue to be subject to Israeli brutality, as demonstrated most recently during the Great March of Return protests since the end of March.
AS TO THE “six million” hoax (the figure was originally set at 12,000,000, but the Jews decided that was going a little too far), I, who happened to be in Military Intelligence, knew, as we all did, that it was just a story devised to pep up the cattle that were being stampeded into Europe, just as we knew (from an American military man who was present as an observer when the bodies were discovered and disinterred) that that massacre of Polish officers in the Katyn Forest had been perpetrated by Soviet troops under the command of Jewish officers.
But that, too, was blamed on the Germans, primarily, I think, to make the “six million” hoax sound a little more plausible.
The lie factories in Washington, most of them under Jewish supervision, were quite efficient.
Immediately after the fall of Hitler, a detachment of the O.S.S. was rushed to Germany to construct gas chambers to substantiate the hoax, but for some reason the persons in charge merely sent back photographs of shower baths so absurd that they had to be suppressed.
From Europe to Middle East, the Zionists continue their holocaust in Palestine.
Much later, sometime in the early 1950s, a model extermination centre was built in Germany for exhibition to the rubber-necks, who, if they think to inquire about the date of construction, are told that it is a “restoration” of a structure that was accidentally destroyed during the war.
Before 1939, the Zionists tried very hard to incite pogroms in Germany — see Josef G. Burg (Ginsburg), Schuld und Schicksal, Muenchen, Damm Verlag, 1962 — but failed; hence the need for the big hoax.
The “final solution” mentioned in German official circles was a plan to establish a “homeland” for the Jews in part of the conquered Russian territory.
Before 1939, the German government had tried very hard to persuade Britain and France to permit the emigration of Jews from Germany to Palestine, Madagascar, or some other suitable territory, but the German efforts were frustrated by British and French Jews who wanted spectacular pogroms in Germany to whip up emotions for a crusade.
The real Jewish homeland
Near the end of the war, some Jews were exterminated unofficially.
I have verified the fact that a Roumanian regiment retreating before the Soviet on the front in Bessarabia, charged with protecting a large number of Jews and transporting them westward, short of both trucks and food, decided to “lose” the Jews on the way, certain that in the confusion of the retreat the higher command would not inquire into what happened.
Earlier in the war, when the Germans occupied Polish territory, German troops were charged with the unpleasant duty of protecting the local Jews from the accumulated resentment of the natives, and there is a story, which I cannot verify, that in one place an officer of the S.S., when the situation got out of hand, said to his subordinates, “I’m not going to shoot white men to protect a pack of Jews.”
Things were made even worse by the COVID-19 pandemic and by United States economic sanctions on neighboring Syria and Iran.
These sanctions, of course, are part of a longstanding US policy that aims to punish any country or organization that engages in or supports resistance to Israel.
“My heart aches seeing the images of people going hungry on the streets of Lebanon,” Gantz tweeted on Tuesday.
He added that he had made similar comments at a Sunday ceremony honoring former members of the South Lebanon Army.
The SLA was a collaborator militia that aided Israel during its 22-year occupation of southern Lebanon.
That occupation ended in 2000 when Lebanese resistance fighters led by Hizballah drove Israeli forces out of the country. Many of the SLA members then fled to Israel.
The hypocrisy in Gantz’s offer is breathtaking.
Despite its withdrawal, Israel still violates Lebanese airspace and sovereignty almost daily, flying unmanned aircraft and fighter jets over the country.
But it was only last month that Gantz was directing threats at Lebanon.
“Lebanon needs to know that what Gaza experienced a few weeks ago is only the tip of the iceberg,” Gantz said in June.
Gantz’s threat referred to Israel’s killing of some 245 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip over the span of 11 days during May, including entire families and dozens of children.
He was speaking at a ceremony honoring Israeli soldiers who participated in the occupation of Lebanon.
Gantz claimed to be the last Israeli soldier to leave Lebanon when Israeli forces abruptly abandoned their positions in May 2000.
He was serving as the liaison between the Israeli army and its SLA collaborators.
“The targets are ready. Whoever hides weapons in their house, endangers their children,” Gantz threatened – apparently laying the pretext to attack Lebanese civilian homes as Israel had just done in Gaza.
In February, Gantz also explicitly threatened Lebanese civilians while supposedly delivering a warning to Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
Hizballah is Lebanon’s de facto defense and deterrent force against repeated Israeli threats and aggressions.
“If Nasrallah’s threats become acts – the result will be painful for Hizballah, its leaders and unfortunately also for the citizens of Lebanon, whom Hizballah has turned into a human shield,” Gantz tweeted.
Gantz did not hide the political motive behind his “humanitarian” offer to Lebanon, saying it was spurred by “Hizballah’s attempts to deepen Iranian investments in the country.”
Far from being “humanitarian” then, Gantz’s offer is a ploy aimed at Iran, a country Israel sees as a regional counterweight to its domination.
Nasrallah said in a recent speech that if the crisis continues to get worse, Iran may help by sending fuel to the country “even if it causes a problem.”
This is not the first time that Israel has made cynical offers to Lebanon.
Following last August’s port explosion in Beirut, Israel rushed to exploit the tragedy by offering aid.
‘Israel’ discusses the new devil gov. in Tehran. US ‘better wake up’ and stay clear of resurrecting the JCPOA peace deal. Next, a discussion of Palestinians rejecting to be vaccinated, not mentioning that ‘Israel’ distributed old vaccines near expiration date. What were the Israelis waiting for, and why does it have to be their brutal occupiers to distribute the vaccines? The genocidal regime BENT ON ELIMINATING THEM, is going to save them?
Matthias Kennes is a registered nurse and medical referent for the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) COVID-19 response in Hebron, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Here, he writes about the striking inequities in access to COVID-19 vaccines for Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Israel is an occupying power, and has millions of vaccines.
Palestine is the occupied territory, and has barely a few thousand vaccines. As a medic, I don’t really care who sorts this out.
As a medic, I do care deeply that the most vulnerable are prioritized.
I am left with this shameful thought echoing in my mind—60 times more likely to be vaccinated in Israel than in Palestine, with the most vulnerable in Palestine still left unprotected.
As a medic, I am shocked.
The internationally acclaimed COVID-19 vaccination success of Israel has a dark side: the consequences of which are being felt cruelly in the West Bank Palestinian territory where I work, and in the blockaded Gaza Strip where my MSF colleagues work.
Israel has managed to vaccinate nearly 4.2 million people with a first dose—that’s around 50 percent of the population—and 2.8 million people with the full two doses, more than 30 percent of the population.
Meanwhile, only several thousand doses are available in the Palestinian West Bank, and a delivery of 20,000 reported to have arrived last weekend in Gaza scarcely scratches at the surface of the needs.
At a generous maximum, assuming that the 35,000 reported Sputnik and Moderna vaccines are all available, that would be around 0.8 percent of the Palestinian population.
To make that clearer, you are over 60 times more likely to have a vaccination in Israel than in Palestine.
According to the Geneva Conventions, Israel has a responsibility as an occupying power to ensure the medical supplies of the occupied population, including “adoption and application of the prophylactic and preventative measures necessary to combat the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics” to “the fullest extent of the means available to it.”
I came to Hebron with an MSF team specifically to help with the COVID-19 response.
In December last year, when the second wave of the pandemic hit the West Bank, the Dura hospital where we are supporting medical assistance was full of COVID-19 patients.
We had mostly elderly people, many with underlying conditions such as diabetes or other chronic diseases. Patients died.
Sick COVID-19 patients have died in hospitals around the world, but these patients died on my watch, and that pains me.
In eight of the 11 West Bank governorates, COVID-19 case numbers are on the rise again.
In Hebron, this increase has been slow and steady for the past four weeks.
I do not want to see any more patients dying of hypoxia. The vaccine is my hope to avoid this. It is also a source of despair.
A few kilometers away in Israel all the vulnerable groups have been vaccinated and they are planning to move onto vaccinating healthy adults and youths, who are less vulnerable, especially to severe complications.
Here in the West Bank there are around 10,000 doses, which is enough for 5,000 people to be vaccinated.
In the hospital where I work, staff have been offered the vaccine, but the available doses do not come close to covering the health care workers, let alone the elderly and people with medical conditions that make them susceptible to dying of COVID-19.
If asked why vulnerable people cannot be vaccinated in Palestine, I do not know how to answer. It is inexplicable and unbelievable. Worse than that—it is unjust and cruel.
We hear information about additional vaccines coming to Palestine from various donation mechanisms, but they are not here now.
And a half-hour drive away, Israel has piles of vaccines and is moving onto vaccinating non-vulnerable groups.
I am outraged, but my colleagues in Gaza are even more so.
It has not always been easy, but the Dura hospital in Hebron where I have been working was able to get most of the supplies needed for COVID-19, and the MSF team was able to provide on-the-job coaching and training to boost the capacity of the staff to manage severely and critically ill patients, all of them needing oxygen.
But in Gaza they have much more severe shortages of medical supplies and pharmaceuticals because the blockade is so strict.
Their capacity for COVID-19 treatment is lower, so their need for the vaccine is all the higher.
And the recent delivery of 20,000 vaccines will not be sufficient to protect both the health care workers and the people most vulnerable to needing critical COVID-19 medical care.
Israel is an occupying power, and has millions of vaccines. Palestine is the occupied territory, and has barely a few thousand vaccines.
As a medic, I don’t really care who sorts this out. As a medic, I do care deeply that the most vulnerable are prioritized.
I am left with this shameful thought echoing in my mind—60 times more likely to be vaccinated in Israel than in Palestine, with the most vulnerable in Palestine still left unprotected.
Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948)
“We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”
United Nations Special
Committee in Palestine Wednesday, July 16, 1947 by the Chief Rabbis of
the Ashkenasic Jewish Community, Rav Yosef Zvi Dushinsky and Rav Zelig
Ruven Bengis of blessed memory, taken from the United Nations
Rejected by Palestinian Jews
Jerusalem greeted Herzl appropriately and, excommunicated and ostracized, he was compelled to sit alone during his entire stay in Jerusalem. This was after a strict warning was issued by the rabbi of Jerusalem, Rabbi Shmuel Salant, “that no one should draw near to him or give him a place in the Jewish area of Jerusalem.” (Mara D‟ara Yisroel v. 2 p. 45)
Rabbi Yosef Meir Weiss,Rebbe of Spinka, Hungary (1838-1909)
I look at the video of that mindless, Zionist rampage of hate & I think of my late mother & father & theirs & those before them. Righteous Jews who asked 4 nothing but 2 give 2 others, & they & countless others who did so from faith & love. This horde would have terrified them.
“People simply disappeared, always during the night (cover). Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word.”
– George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 1
The Palestinian Arab claim on historical grounds is, first, that like the Jews, they have had a presence in the area ever since the time of the Philistines, from whom they are descended and, indeed, from whom the name of the country is derived.
Second, that for the last several hundred years they have formed a majority, by a very large proportion, of the inhabitants of the area.
The third aspect of claims to Palestine is ancestry.
“The Eastern European Zionists are not Semites (though the Arabs are), have no semitic blood, and their remote forefathers never trod Palestinian earth.”
The British journalist Douglas Reed, former chief Central European correspondent of the Times, 1950.
If you as a people have a historical claim to an area, this is obviously made stronger if you can provide chapter and verse for the connection of individuals or families with the area.
In the case of the Jewish inhabitants of Israel, this is not usually the case.
While one can point to Jews – a small minority in fact – living in Palestine over the centuries, the vast majority of Jews who have come to Israel have no such personal or family link.
Their antecedents can usually only be traced back to Jewish communities in Europe, or in other parts of the Middle East.
The Palestinians’ knowledge of family history keeps their claim to the land a living reality.
“The emir (ruler) is in Transjordania, where I put him one Sunday afternoon in Jerusalem”.-Winston Churchill (1921)
Wherever they live, in refugee camps or as prosperous citizens in the West, most Palestinians can relate a family history that can be traced back for centuries, and usually to a specific town or village in Palestine.
The European Jews: The Hebrew language, which had not been spoken as a mother tongue since the second century CE, became the national language of Israel over Yiddish and Arabic speaking Jews.
“We should know that all the Allied nations are spilling much of their blood, and if we do not sacrifice any (common Jewish) blood, by what right shall we merit coming before the bargaining table when they divide nations and lands at the war’s end? ….for only with blood (Jewish holocaust) shall we get the land (Palestine).”
Nathan Schwalb World Zionist Organization (Zionist Elite) in Switzerland (1942)**** The term holocaust comes from the Septuagint translation of the burnt offering and derives from two words: holos (“whole”) and kaustos (“burnt”).
This Greek translation corresponds perfectly to the Hebrew terms holah meaning “that which ascends” as in fire or smoke, and kalil meaning “whole” or “entire”.
The holocaust was a sacrificial ritual in the worship of Ba’al Moloch.
Such acts are to call upon the great evil entity to aid in battle, to defeat an enemy, to help gain more wealth and more power.
The ritual is a Jewish ritual and the sacrifices are Jews.
Israel is an imperial outpost, an extension of Wall Street and the City of London in the Middle East. That’s the origin of “Israel.”
Leopold Amery not only wrote the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which laid the groundwork for the state of Israel, he was a hidden Jew.
World War II was a debate on colonialism, and Zionism won
After World War II with Hitler’s colonizer-faction neutralized, capitalist-colonial European powers were left with one way to resolve the “Jewish Question”: Zionism. The same British and German anti-semites were now proudly on the same side as European Jews (as long as they were Zionist).
In 1948 after an influx of European Jewish settlers, and their genocidal expulsion of Palestinians, the Zionist state of israel was formed on stolen Palestinian land.
Colonized Palestinians of all religions are dispersed throughout the world, still blocked from returning to their ancestral lands through a regime of apartheid and genocide.
Jewish colonizers from Europe on a ship destined for Palestine
Not only did israel colonize Palestinian land, but an outpost of colonialism throughout the region, including land belonging to Palestinian and Arab jews.
These acts encourage other colonized nations to become sellouts like Sudan, Bahrain, and the UAE, and attacks Iran, and steals Syrian land because they dare to fight back.
The remnants of Nazi Germany even started paying Israel “reparations” in the 1950s.
This was little more than an investment in a new European scheme of colonization.
To this day, Germany still has not paid reparations to Namibians for the colonial theft and genocide committed against them in the early 1900s. Colonialism continues, and where are the Jewish movements?
The Ghanaian revolutionary, Kwame Nkrumah, wrote that “[the starting task to defeat colonialism] is to develop ideological clarity among the anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, pro-liberation masses of our continents.
They, and they alone, make, maintain, or break revolutions.”
For this reason, there must be absolutely no wavering when calling out false claims of antisemitism from racist colonizers who aim to confuse the masses of colonized people to prevent a united front against all colonialism and all colonizers!
Anti-colonialism is not or ever anti-semitism; the true anti-semitism is the zionist colonization of Semitic peoples/lands; anything someone would characterize as “anti-semetic” coming from anti-colonial revolutionaries is just anti-colonizer!
From the start until the end, communists and anti-colonial movements have always sought to end all forms of oppression.

To this day, there are anti-colonial revolutionaries worldwide including in Syria, Iran, Palestine.
Black Hammer Organization aims to unite all colonized people and bring down all forms of colonialism so the poor and working-class can have dictatorship over their land, lives, labor and resources, and where we can end capitalism to build a world where nobody lives at the expense of another.
join our class for colonizers to materially support colonized people
Those who attack anti-colonial revolutionary movements only reveal their investment and unity in colonialism.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
snip—-In 1988, reports again surfaced in the same Guatemalan newspapers (El Graficoand Prensa Libre) that seven babies had been rescued who were destined for organ transplants in the United States and Israel.
The El Grafico story reported that security agents had captured two Israelies who were working with two Guatemalan lawyers, Jorge Rodolfo Rivera and Carlos Rene Gonzalez, who in turn had the services of a Guatemalan pediatrician,Joaquin Kackler.
They paid women a sum At Issue 245 of 50 quetzales ($20) to nurse and care for the babies.
This business was discovered by personnel of the Guatemalan Narcotics and Intelligence Section (SIN). El Graficoalso reported that official information revealed the people captured confessed that they exported children to Israel and the United States so that their organs could be sold for the sum of $75,000 to families who needed transplants for their children (El Grafico, Jan. 24, 1988).
A more extreme right-winger is set to take his place
Israeli leaders will now have to cope with four different variants of the Israel/Palestinian crisis, each of which may, like the coronavirus, become the dominant strain and detonate a new explosion.
Israel and Hamas have ended their 11-day “war”, but even before the shooting stopped it had transformed the political landscape.
The Israel/Palestinian confrontation has shifted away from focusing solely on Gaza to multiple fronts – Jerusalem, the West Bank, Israel itself– and an upsurge in any one of them could start a new round of violence.
Events in Jerusalem ignited the present crisis and there is every chance that they will do so again.
Far-right Israeli groups are intent on tightening their grip on the city and eliminating the Palestinian presence wherever they can.
“The political temperature will stay high, simmering just below boiling point” says Daniel Levy, a former Israeli diplomat and president of the US/Middle East Project.
“Another flare-up in Jerusalem would make it boil over.”
Israeli leaders had hoped that the cantonisation of the Palestinians – three million on the West Bank, two million each in Israel and Gaza, 300,000 in Jerusalem – would fragment them politically as well as geographically.
For a time, this strategy appeared to work, but over the last two weeks the crisis in one Palestinian canton has swiftly spread to the three others.
Israeli police efforts to evict Palestinians from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of Jerusalem and their use of stun grenades and teargas in al-Aqsa mosque led to Hamas firing rocket barrages from Gaza.
This in turn provoked protests by Palestinians in Israel on a larger scale than anything seen since the second intifada 20 years ago.
On the West Bank, protesters poured into the streets in every town and the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority was mocked and marginalized.
For all the empty talk about one- and two-state solutions to the Israel/Palestine problem, the outcome of the fourth war centered on Gaza proves that the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean is a single political unit.
What affects one part of it affects all the rest.
The latest Gaza war showed that Israel does not have a viable military or political strategy for fighting or engaging with the Palestinians.
Israeli generals and officials claim to have degraded the military infrastructure of Hamas, killed some of its commanders and destroyed part of its tunnel system.
Israel was certainly surprised by Hamas firing 3,700 rockets into Israel, despite being isolated in Gaza for 15 years.
Even if Hamas proved to have a little more military muscle than expected, though, there is no doubting Israel’s superiority over the ill-equipped paramilitary force it faces in Gaza.
But this superiority stubbornly refuses to produce victory or rather that Israel knows what such a victory would look like.
It cannot realistically expect to eliminate Hamas and carry out regime change in Gaza without reoccupation, which would provoke even stronger Palestinian resistance.
Keeping the Palestinians there under a state of permanent siege, the status quo for the last 15 years, has just been shown not to work.
Claims of Israeli military success as justification for agreeing to a ceasefire are a smokescreen concealing Israeli failure to gain any real advantage from a bombardment that killed 232 Palestinians, including 65 children, but did little else.
Israeli commentators are franker and better informed about this lack of success than their western counterparts.
The editor-in-chief of the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, Aluf Benn, calls the conflict just ended “Israel’s most failed and pointless Gaza operation ever”.
He says that all the PR of the Israeli army cannot “cover up the truth: the military has no idea how to paralyze Hamas’s forces and throw it off balance.
Destroying its tunnels with powerful bombs revealed Israel’s strategic capabilities without causing any substantive damage to the enemy’s fighting abilities.”
Many states have faced similar frustration when fighting a so-called asymmetric war against a militarily inferior but undefeatable opponent.
This happened to Britain in Northern Ireland between 1968 and 1998.
The sensible response of a government that fails to get its way by physical force is to seek political engagement with the other side to work out a compromise.
But this is precisely what the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political partners cannot do.
For almost a quarter of a century, his strategy since he was first elected Israeli leader in 1997 has been to argue that Israel can have a permanent peace without compromising with the Palestinians.
This view, dominant from the centre left to the hard right, held that the Palestinians had been decisively defeated and there was no need to concede anything to them.
With President Donald Trump giving total support to this maximalist position during his four years in the White House, many Israelis were persuaded that Netanyahu had been right.
Gaza looked as if it had been successfully sealed off, the West Bank broken up into Palestinian Bantustans and expanding Israeli settlements, Jerusalem was encircled from without and increasingly de-Palestinianised from within, while the Palestinians in Israel remained an embittered but impotent minority.
Arab states were normalizing relations with Israel and the Palestinian Question no longer figured on the international agenda.
It was all a mirage.
The latest war in Gaza may look like the three previous ones in 2008-09, 2012 and 2014, but it is far more important because the Netanyahu/Trump policy has collapsed and there is nothing much to put in its place.
The old Israel/Palestinian crisis is back and is more envenomed and widespread than before. An ominous new feature of it is Palestinians in Israel taking to the streets to demand equality and an end to discrimination.
Israeli settlers from the West Bank have been coming back to Israel to lead anti-Palestinian demonstrations within mixed Jewish/Palestinian towns and cities.
Such developments do not mean that the balance of power between Israel and the Palestinians has abruptly skewed in favour of the latter.
On the contrary, one of the problems in convincing Israelis at every level that they should engage with the Palestinians is that they do not believe they need to.
Hamas may have been energised and the Palestinian Authority further discredited by the latest conflict war, but there is an overall vacuum of Palestinian leadership and organisation.
This is not quite such a crippling disadvantage as it might appear since Palestinian political movements have a long tradition of prioritising their grip on power over everything else.
The ceasefire that came into force between Israel and Hamas early on Friday morning ushers in a period of enhanced instability.
Daniel Levy sees Israel as being in a state of permanent crisis because it has no military solution to Gaza/Hamas while its right-wing leaders are blocked off by ideological fixations from seeking to open up diplomatic and political options.
The idea of weakening the Palestinians by fragmenting them has turned out to be counterproductive.
Israeli leaders will now have to cope with four different variants of the Israel/Palestinian crisis, each of which may, like the coronavirus, become the dominant strain and detonate a new explosion.
Republicans and Democrats are once again targeting the Minnesota congresswoman for acknowledging the crimes of imperialism and occupation.
As sure as the sun rises in the morning, the American political elite will periodically come together across warring party lines to disparage, slander, and otherwise malign Rep. Ilhan Omar (D‑MN).
On Monday, Omar posted on Twitter her exchange with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
There she raised what should be a fairly tame question: What mechanisms exist to investigate war crimes and crimes against humanity in Palestine and Afghanistan?
The United States government opposes the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) jurisdiction to hear alleged cases of human rights abuses by both Israel and Hamas, the United States and the Taliban.
If domestic courts won’t investigate war crimes, and if the United States opposes the ICC’s ability to do so, where can victims of war crimes go for justice?
Secretary Blinken offered a few vague assertions about the value of human life, followed by a reiteration of the State Department’s line: that it opposes the ICC’s jurisdiction to investigate claims unless they are referred by a state or by the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
There are just two problems with this defense. One: what if it’s the state itself that is charged with war crimes?
What possible reason would such a state have to call on the ICC to investigate itself?
Two: what if that very state (in the case of the US) or its strongest ally (in the case of Israel), has veto power in the UN Security Council?
How on earth could we ever expect that same body to fairly make a referral?
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” Omar wrote.
“We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Like clockwork, Republicans exploded in condemnations of antisemitism. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (CA) attacked Omar as “anti-Semitic,” “anti-American,” and “abhorrent.”
Other Democratic leaders followed suit. A group of twelve Jewish Democrats issued a statement bemoaning the “false equivalencies” between “democracies” such as the United States and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban.
The entire weight of the Democratic Party leadership chimed in with a similar statement demanding that Omar “clarify” (read: apologize for) her previous comments.
“Drawing false equivalencies between democracies like the US and Israel, and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban,” they argued, “foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all.”
You could be forgiven for doing a double-take.
That starts with not turning our backs on veterans or their families who sleep on the streets, who go hungry, and go without healthcare.
In Congress, I’ll continue to fight to guarantee healthcare, housing, and work toward a more peaceful world without endless wars.
Aren’t these the very same people that only a couple of weeks ago responded to carnage in Gaza, Israeli air strikes flattening residential buildings and killing hundreds of civilians, the violent expulsion of Palestinians from their homes, unrestrained Israeli lynch mobs shouting “death to Arabs,” with detached denunciations of “both sides”?
Drawing equivalencies is apparently only “false” if doing so threatens to hold Israel or the US accountable.
During Israel’s two-week assault on Gaza, mainstream politicians and the media insisted that “both sides” were responsible, despite the completely disproportionate death toll of Palestinians, and despite the fact that one side, Israel, is a powerful state which colonizes and occupies the other side, Palestine, a stateless population.
The media sought to hone in on and vilify Hamas in order to dehumanize Palestinians, as though every one of the millions of Palestinians living under Israeli rule is launching rockets, and deserves to be bombed in response.
But, apart from the wildly unequal scale of destruction wrought by Israeli forces, to insist that there is something uniquely reprehensible about Hamas’s methods begs a serious question.
If launching low-grade rockets, which lack precise targeting technologies and therefore risk hitting civilians, is an abomination, is it not a greater abomination that Israel uses state-of-the-art weaponry, which purposefully and precisely attacks civilian buildings, schools, the media, and infrastructure like desalination plants, power and sewage plants?
The Republican Party and the Democratic Party leadership claim that the United States’ and Israel’s mantles of self-defined “democracies” means that they can be responsible for policing themselves, and that they are in a category distinct from an organization like Hamas.
But that argument falls apart when we realize, as Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world is my own government,” the United States.
Lest we forget, the United States’ ongoing “war on terror” is responsible for at least 800,000 deaths in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and Pakistan, and over 37 million people displaced from their homes.
Israel, for its part, has killed almost 6,000 Palestinians since the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs started keeping tally in 2008, as compared to 262 Israelis killed during that time.
“Would love to know who @IlhanMN thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel, though I think I can guess. Bad form, Congresswoman. That’s the second anti-Semitic trope you’ve tweeted. “Would love to know who @IlhanMN thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel, though I think I can guess. Bad form, Congresswoman. That’s the second anti-Semitic trope you’ve tweeted. Omar then responded with one word: “AIPAC!”
In that sense, it’s true, there is no equivalency with the damage caused by a group like Hamas — what the US and Israel have done and continue to do around the world is far worse.
Let’s be clear about what this attack on Ilhan Omar is really about.
First, every time the Republicans let loose on Omar, and the Democrats line up behind them, they encourage death threats and put Omar in danger.
Second, such actions distract from the ongoing devastation of Palestinian lives, the blockade of Gaza, the ramifications of the most recent bombing campaign, and apartheid within Israel.
Imagine, as Rep. Ayana Pressley put it, if instead of wasting time targeting Ilhan Omar, “Congress was as outraged by what Palestinians endure daily.”
Finally, in the context of a deepening rift within the Democratic Party on the question of Israel and Palestine, and growing public sympathy with Palestinians, the actions of the party leadership to call out Omar are an attempt to discipline the Left of the party.
Last month, Omar and members of the “Squad,” along with other progressive Democrats, called out Israel’s ethnic cleansing and apartheid by name on the House floor.
It is no surprise that now the party leadership has seized the first opportunity to try to shove that genie back in the bottle.
The Democratic Party establishment is as committed to unequivocal support for Israel as their Republican counterparts.
Israel’s utility to the geopolitical interests of the US government means that they will fight tooth and nail to get their ducks back into their traditional pro-Israel row.
It’s good to finally have a leftist on the House Foreign Affairs Committee calling out US hypocrisy and exposing war crimes, as Omar has consistently done. Neither she, nor the movement for Palestine, has anything to apologize for.
Interestingly, the article looks at what’s obvious and the podcast looks beyond the surface. That’s great. But I am not at all pessimistic regarding the colonial criminal state of ‘Israel’…there are many things going on beneath the surface and none of it favors ‘Israel’.

Israel’s new coalition has brought about the end of Benjamin Netanyahu’s long tenure, who after 12 long years is finally a former prime minister.
And it has been particularly amusing to see Netanyahu go full Donald Trump.
Allegations of election fraud caused by a conspiracy of left-wing terror supporters, dog whistles to his base and a final, angry, paranoid farewell speech linking the Jewish holocaust with US policy on Iran.
That, however, is the only positive thing about a new coalition that initially will be led by Naftali Bennett, a man who brags about “killing Arabs,” wants to annex large swathes of the West Bank and supports neither sovereignty for Palestinians nor equal rights.
“I strongly oppose the giving of even one inch of land to the Arabs,” Bennett said in 2020.
Bennett is one component of a loose coalition that runs from the United Arab List and Meretz through Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid to, well, Bennett’s Yamina and Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu.
It’s an eight-party group that holds a single-seat majority in Israel’s parliament and indeed was confirmed by just 60-59 votes with one abstention in Israel’s parliament yesterday.
It is a constellation of parties that agrees on only one thing, ousting Netanyahu.
And it will almost certainly fall at the first or second significant hurdle.
That first hurdle might come sooner rather than later.
On Tuesday, Israeli Jewish nationalists are supposed to be marching through Jerusalem to loudly proclaim their exclusive ownership over the city.
It is the kind of provocation that provided the spark for last month’s escalation and led to an Israeli assault on Gaza and the deaths of at least 67 children.
Final approval for the route is expected Monday, after Israeli police on Friday gave the go-ahead as long as marchers do not walk through the Old City.
Hamas has already warned that the march could imperil a “fragile ceasefire.”
A statement from its military wing, the Qassam Brigades, called on Jerusalem’s youth to confront the marchers and on the “military wings of Palestinian factions to be on high alert and to defend Jerusalem if needed.”
A full escalation might not happen. But it could.
And while there may be a new prime minister, but the defense minister is the same – Benny Gantz, no longer PM in waiting: the Israeli military will act with the brutality it always does.
Whether the United Arab List can stay in a coalition killing children in Gaza remains to be seen.
Will Mansour Abbas – the first leader of a party representing the Palestinian minority to become a part of an Israeli government – be able to prevent that from happening? No.
So when it comes to policy on Palestinians in occupied territory there will be no significant change.
There will be no change in the international approach either, judging by the many welcoming statements from around the world.
There is audible relief in some of these statements.
It’s almost as if Netanyahu embarrassed all these fine, upstanding Western politicians by not only disregarding mild European or US protest and hand wringing, but repeatedly lecturing Europeans and Americans on how to behave better.
International politicians may feel more comfortable around Bennett, but he offers no similar solace to Palestinians anywhere.
While attempts to ensure a bigger budget for Israel’s Palestinian population are certainly welcome, there have been no similar proposals to reform a discriminatory legal system that lies at the root of Palestinian discontent inside the country.
On the occupied territory, Bennett is as hardline if not more so than Netanyahu, and he was a fervent advocate of unilaterally annexing swathes of West Bank land as implicitly sanctioned by former US President Donald Trump’s Ultimate Deal™.
He is of course constricted by a coalition which will almost certainly have to avoid any tough decisions on the Palestinian issue if it is to survive.
But that cuts both ways, and to those politicians and “Middle East experts” who believe the time is ripe to restart some kind of dead-end peace process, the answer is clearly: not going to happen.
For as long as Western countries continue to hold their hands over Israel, protecting it from sanctions and any other consequences of its violent discrimination against and oppression of the land’s Indigenous population, no Israeli government is going to take any significant strides anywhere.
Least of all this one, which is simply a placeholder.
The US will not get involved in the current government turbulence in Israel, but remains committed to the security of the settler-colonial state, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has declared.
Her words are a far cry from the impositions which Palestinians faced from the US and the international community when Hamas was elected in 2006 in the “free and fair” Palestinian legislative election.
Palestinian democracy was subjected to unacceptable conditions and the US disregarded the whole electoral process, and the will of the people, to create a false narrative of democracy out of international impositions.
When it comes to Israel, the US won’t interfere in political affairs, even when the government displays open contempt for US policy in the region.
And Washington’s chequebook is always open.
During the course of Israel’s recent military offensive against Gaza, for example, President Joe Biden went ahead and allocated $735 million worth of arms to be “sold” to the rogue state, illustrating how political allegiances have little to do with democracy and everything to do with human and political rights violations.
A week after Israel unleashed its military might against Palestinians, Defence Minister Benny Gantz was in Washington securing assurances from the Biden administration and funding for the Iron Dome missile defence system.
Such funding, of course, was unquestionable.
According to the Acting Secretary of State Joey Hood, Biden is “clear about this administration’s support for replenishing this system to support Israel’s ability to defend itself in the future.”
Since the 1967 Six-Day War, the US has offered unequivocal support for Israel, while embarking upon a pretence of securing the minimum of Palestinian rights; in other words, ensuring that the Palestinian people remain shackled to a humanitarian aid programme and not a path to freedom and justice.
While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s name has become synonymous with state and settler violations against the Palestinian people, this is merely a question of timeframes.
The incoming coalition led by Naftali Bennett is likely to be just as ruthless and in contempt of international law.
Annexation, for example, was one of Bennett’s aims in previous years, even though many people associate this with Donald Trump and Netanyahu.

Bennett has also been outspoken in terms of refuting the two-state compromise.
His position makes it even more obvious that the “solution” is dead and buried, in large part due to international inaction over Israel’s colonial expansion.
However, in typical fashion, the international community has not mustered any political opposition to settlement expansion, meaning that Bennett’s annexation aims will be fulfilled at an opportune time, as former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman often reiterated in his interviews.
Besides the US military aid which guarantees Israel’s hegemony in the region, the Biden administration’s insistence on the two-state compromise — despite the evidence that it is a farce —is likely to remain the game changer, to the detriment of the Palestinians.
An inconspicuous tactic because it is driven by international consensus, yet influential when it comes to colonial expansion, two-state politics are driving Israel’s annexation plans in the absence of the so-called “deal of the century”.
Bennett or Netanyahu, or anyone else for that matter, will not influence the unconditional US backing for Israel, because it is driven by support for colonialism and regional interests, for which the Zionist state was created to protect.
