“The relentless and repetitively compulsive Israeli attacks over the past decade suggest that the Israelis are making innocent Palestinians pay for the savagery of the Germans 70 years ago. Israeli crimes against the Palestinians, in fact, began in 1948 with the “Nakba,” the “catastrophe,” when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced from their homes during the Arab-Israeli War. As a result, The Palestinians are the only refugees in the world that have been given hereditary refugee status.”
For the past seven decades, there have been very few places on the surface of the earth concentrated so much misery than in Palestine, fewer have experienced state terrorism funded, endorsed and powered by greatest military powers of our time. Gaza in the words of the British PM David Cameron is a “prison camp”. In a manner rarely identified with Western leaders Cameron, criticized the Israeli government when he said “humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions. Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp.” Although that was far back in 2010. In the eyes of the ‘exceptional’ self-acclaimed police of the world, Israel can never do wrong and when she does her wrong is sure going to end up under the filthy rug of giant propaganda machines.
Also in a manner too familiar, a voice in Washington in support of Israel’s aggression against Palestine is bound to echo in EU, so when America says Israel has the right to self-defense (when in fact Israel is busy killing civilians and children) EU member states are expected to kowtow and vomit the same line. After all Israel is the only ‘democratic’ state in the Middle East, shoving her war crimes (which is simply gift of democracy) aside wouldn’t hurt anyone except the displaced Palestinians who has no big power as friends except well-meaning citizens of the world, who can only protest. As Israeli bombardment of Gaza strip reach day 17 death toll of Palestinians in Gaza is in the region of 800 mostly civilians and unfortunately with large number of children which rouse the suspicion of ethnic cleansing.
The latest UN report: says at least 75 percent of the dead are civilians, including an estimated 168 children. In the last two days, Palestinian children have been killed at a rate of one per hour. More than 4,500 Palestinians have been wounded, and more than 150,000 have been displaced. Israel’s recent targets have included an apartment building where 19 children from one family were killed, mosques, a hospital and Gaza’s sole power plant. The United Nations says that a school for girls has been hit for the second time in three days.
Israel’s deliberate, historic and unprecedented precision at hitting civilian target in simplest of term is a war crime a premeditated genocide. In an international show of shame America, proves her sadistic exceptionalism when she defended the indefensible in a bid to protect Israel, her protege in war crimes. America cast the single no vote to investigate Israeli war crimes by the United Nations. “The United Nations Human Rights Council has voted to investigate Israel for potential war crimes. The vote was 29 to one, with 17 abstentions. The United States cast the lone “no” vote. In Washington, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters: “We will stand up for Israel … even if it means standing alone.” I can only say congratulations to America, as she stand up for Israel in a manner reminiscent of the way Reagan administration stood up for apartheid in Azania (South Africa) some few decades ago. In Palestine, God seem too far away, and justice on indefinite vacation.
For the Gazans living hell on Earth the struggles continues and for those martyred Rest In Peace.
