Blatant Slaughter

NOVANEWS

By Jim Kirwan

Gaza

 

In the ongoing and continuous slaughter of the Palestinians, the Ukrainians, the Syrians, the Iraqi’s and any number of other nation states which US Inc and Israel are laying waste to at the moment: The People of the world must begin to analytically deconstruct the methodology beneath this entire global takeover.
Throughout all the BS, the Blatant Slaughter, one shining example of the depth of these criminal-activities stands alone.
Zionist-dominated mainstream media vividly portrays Israel as a tiny embattled nation seeking peace in a sea of Arab hostility. 1 Arabs, we are told, commit acts of terror while Israel only resorts to violence out of self-protection. The facts of history paint a very different picture.
Far from deploring terror, Israel has sanctioned terror to seize
and expand its territory since its beginnings. In 1944, Zionist leaders in Israel faced two alternatives. They could continue to allow the British and Arabs to occupy Palestine, who would continue to pressure Israel to concede a Palestinian state. Or they could drive both British and Arabs out. Israelis chose the latter.
Members of the Zionist ruling elite and their clandestine terrorist enforcers–the Jewish Agency, Hagana, Irgun and the Stern Gang–began to exert every possible terrorist means to dominate Palestine. Their strategy was simple: the more respectable Zionist establishment would take the “high road” and officially disavow terrorism. Meanwhile, Zionist terrorists would commit any crime needed to disrupt British occupation and to panic Arabs into flight. The Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem, available in most university libraries, documents from British records more than five hundred violent or terrorist incidents against Palestinians and the British occupation between 1939 and 1948. These included bombings, booby traps and landmines, kidnappings and torture of prisoners, bank robberies, murders of Arabs, and assassinations of police and British officials. 2
Chief terrorists were David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir and later, Ariel Sharon. Begin headed Irgun, and Shamir led the Stern Gang. They cooperated intimately with the highest political body of the Zionist establishment, the Jewish Agency, and the popular Zionist resistance army, Hagana. Ben-Gurion headed Hagana and later the Jewish Agency. 3
After 1944–when Ben-Gurion formally rejected the British plan for partition of Palestine into Jewish/Arab states–most Israelis, particularly the young, favored expulsion of British and Arabs.
Here is the short list of Zionist atrocities from 1944 to the present:”
There’s a list of the crimes that went into the creation of the sewer that is Israel today ­ it includes four more pages at the link
Israel Founded by and Living on Terror: Rev. Ted Pike http://www.rense.com/general81/tedp.htm
In the case of the Palestinians there are a few blatant facts that still seem to keep on being ignored.
First of all the Palestinians were forced to hold an election, by the duplicitous Americans—in order to be able to say that the Palestinians had fulfilled that part of their rights as a captured people.
The Election was held and over 85% of Palestine voted for Hamas, to represent them in all things political. Needless to say both Israel and the two-faced US Inc Amerikans were furious.
So they took a page, which they made up on the spot, from their “owner’s manual” for the captured-Palestinians and they disallowed the election of Hamas because “Palestinians could not be represented by “a terrorist group” (See the first three pages of this article). Consequently the American’s appointed Abbas to “lead a unity government” for the imprisoned people, even thought the so-called Palestinian Authority had been totally disgraced under it’s former leader Yasser Arafat (whom Israel murdered while under house arrest).
Today the Palestinians are still not allowed to have a leader of their own choosing. Shouldn’t that at least be a violation of some kind of international law: But hey ­ since it’s Amerika that did this in broad daylight – so no one has officially complained.
Except that now under the terms of today’s conditions in both Gaza and The West Bank, this awkward and illegal “misrepresentation” just might come up again?
If Hamas is a “terrorist organization” then Israel is both the mother and the father of all the Terrorist Organizations on the planet!
One thing that will most likely not be brought up is the pedigree of the criminal-leadership, that’s currently running the Outlaw State of Ukraine at the moment. That was another Amerikan creation, by USI in tandem with Israel and NATO, in order to finish crushing what remains of the so-called ‘free-world’.
Israel’s Continuing Wars:
http://www.rense.com/general96/iscontin.html
What the world is finally becoming aware of, at last, is that the hijackers have already run out-of-time. Amid the ruins in Amerika, there is no longer private anything: everything is owned by either some faceless corporation or the massively criminal feral government. There are no jobs. There is no money. And what little employment opportunity remains, is dwindling fast. American’s have no justice, no laws that protect them from the government or the fake cops and we have no freedom of expression, or even the right to think for ourselves. We no longer have a right to our own water, we cannot grow our own food and we definitely cannot complain about anything which the trolls want to do to us—no matter what that might be! So – What’s left to take from us? For all intents and purposes we’re already dead: We just haven’t been buried yet!
When you look at what we did to Libya, Syria and Iraq, we can see what the future holds for us. And when you watch the video here, you can see how easily this could be happening in America and to everyone that lives here now: This is NOT Gaza, this is Ukraine!
http://realysm.ru/
The first Video has English sub-titles. These murders were carried out in the 
Genocide committed by the Ukrainian Army shelling of Luhansk. The extreme graphics are that way because the neighbors of the people murdered wanted the world to see the evidence ­ something which Utube apparently doesn’t allow ­ because they don’t want to upset anyone who doesn’t already know what dead bodies look like ­ despite the millions of dead bodies that everyone with a boob tube has seen millions of times throughout their lives
Be sure to thank U-tube’s Israeli censors
For that very considerate decision.

The Blood of Palestine is on the Hands of the Bribe-Takers

NOVANEWS

The blood of the thousands of Palestinians who have been killed by the so-called Israel Defence Forces since the beginning of the siege of Gaza, stains the hands of each and every politician who has done nothing to censure Israel for this cruel and illegal act of virtual imprisonment, or who has taken any kind of bribe to bolster his or her election-campaign coffers, in return for turning their backs on the quite obvious fact that Apartheid Israel has never had any intention other than to genocide the Palestinian people.

Ayelet Shaked: Called for the killing of Palestinian women in a Facebook post, quoting these words: which were written by one of Benyamin Netanyahu’s speechwriters, the late Uri Elitzur.

She has since denied that her post was racist or offensive, by pointing out that she was quoting from an article by the late Uri Elitzur, which was written 12 years ago.

But her denial simply doesn’t hold water, because in her Facebook introduction to it she wrote: “It is as relevant today as it was at the time.”

The International Community Must End Israel’s Collective Punishment of the Civilian Population in the Gaza Strip

NOVANEWS

As international and criminal law scholars, human rights defenders, legal experts and individuals who firmly believe in the rule of law and in the necessity for its respect in times of peace and more so in times of war, we feel the intellectual and moral duty to denounce the grave violations, mystification and disrespect of the most basic principles of the laws of armed conflict and of the fundamental human rights of the entire Palestinian population committed during the ongoing Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip. We also condemn the launch of rockets from the Gaza Strip, as every indiscriminate attack against civilians, regardless of the identity of the perpetrators, is not only illegal under international law but also morally intolerable. However, as also implicitly noted by the UN Human Rights Council in its Resolution of the 23th July 2014, the two parties to the conflict cannot be considered equal, and their actions – once again – appear to be of incomparable magnitude.

Once again it is the unarmed civilian population, the ‘protected persons’ under International humanitarian law (IHL), who is in the eye of the storm. Gaza civilian population has been victimized

in the name of a falsely construed right to self-defence, in the midst of an escalation of violence provoked in the face of the entire international community. The so-called Operation Protective Edge erupted during an ongoing armed conflict, in the context of a prolonged belligerent occupation that commenced in 1967. In the course of such ongoing conflict thousands of Palestinians have been killed and injured in the Gaza Strip during recurrent and ostensible ‘ceasefire’ periods since 2005, after Israel’s unilateral ‘disengagement’ from the Gaza Strip. The deaths caused by Israel’s provocative actions in the Gaza Strip prior to the latest escalation of hostilities must not be ignored as well.

According to UN sources, over the last two weeks, nearly 800 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed and more than 4,000 injured, of whom the vast majority were civilians. Several independent sources indicate that only 15 per cent of the casualties were combatants. Entire families have been murdered. Hospitals, clinics, as well as a rehabilitation centre for disabled persons have been targeted and severely damaged. During one single day, on Sunday 20th July, more than 100 Palestinian civilians were killed in Shuga’iya, a residential neighbourhood of Gaza City. This was one of the bloodiest and most aggressive operations ever conducted by Israel in the Gaza Strip, a form of urban violence constituting a total disrespect of civilian innocence. Sadly, this was followed only a couple of days later by an equally destructive attack on Khuza’a, East of Khan Younis.

Additionally, the offensive has already caused widespread destruction of buildings and infrastructure: according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, over 3,300 houses have been targeted resulting in their destruction or severe damage.

As denounced by the UN Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) on the Gaza conflict in the aftermath of Israel’s ‘Operation Cast Lead’ in 2008-2009: “While the Israeli Government has sought to portray its operations as essentially a response to rocket attacks in the exercise of its right to self defence, the Mission considers the plan to have been directed, at least in part, at a different target: The people of Gaza as a whole” (A/HRC/12/48, par. 1680). The same can be said for the current Israeli offensive.

The civilian population in the Gaza Strip is under direct attack and many are forced to leave their homes. What was already a refugee and humanitarian crisis has worsened with a new wave of mass displacement of civilians: the number of IDPs has reached nearly 150,000, many of whom have obtained shelter in overcrowded UNRWA schools, which unfortunately are no save areas as demonstrated by the repeated attacks on the UNRWA school in Beit Hanoun. Everyone in Gaza is traumatized and living in a state of constant terror. This result is intentional, as Israel is again relying on the ‘Dahiya doctrine, which deliberately has recourse to disproportionate force to inflict suffering on the civilian population in order to achieve political (to exert pressure on the Hamas Government) rather than military goals.

In so doing, Israel is repeatedly and flagrantly violating the law of armed conflict, which establishes that combatants and military objectives may be targeted, i.e. ‘those objects which by their nature, location, purpose or use make an effective contribution to military action and whose total or partial destruction, capture or neutralization, in the circumstances ruling at the time, offers a definite military advantage.’ Most of the recent heavy bombings in Gaza lack an acceptable military justification and, instead, appear to be designed to terrorize the civilian population. As the ICRC clarifies, deliberately causing terror is unequivocally illegal under customary international law.

In its Advisory Opinion in the Nuclear Weapons case, the ICJ stated that the principle of distinction, which requires belligerent States to distinguish between civilian and combatants, is one of the “cardinal principles” of international humanitarian law and one of the “intransgressible principles of international customary law”.

The principle of distinction is codified in Articles 48, 51(2) and 52(2) of the Additional Protocol I of 1977 to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, to which no reservations have been made. According to the Additional Protocol I, “attacks” refer to “acts of violence against the adversary, whether in offence or in defence” (Article 49). Under both customary international law and treaty law, the prohibition on directing attacks against the civilian population or civilian objects is absolute. There is no discretion available to invoke military necessity as a justification.

Contrary to Israel’s claims, mistakes resulting in civilian casualties cannot be justified: in case of doubt as to the nature of the target, the law clearly establishes that an object which is normally dedicated to civilian purposes (such as schools, houses, places of worship and medical facilities), are presumed as not being used for military purposes. During these past weeks, UN officials and representatives have repeatedly called on Israel to strictly abide by the principle of precaution in carrying out attacks in the Gaza Strip, where risks are greatly aggravated by the very high population density, and maximum restraint must be exercised to avoid civilian casualties. HRW has noted that these rules exist to minimize mistakes “when such mistakes are repeated, it raises the concern of whether the rules are being disregarded.

 

Moreover, even when targeting clear military objectives, Israel consistently violates the principle of proportionality: this is particularly evident with regard to the hundreds of civilian houses destroyed by the Israeli army during the current military operation in Gaza. With the declared intention to target a single member of Hamas, Israeli forces have bombed and destroyed houses although occupied as residencies by dozens of civilians, including women, children, and entire families.

It is inherently illegal under customary international law to intentionally target civilian objects, and the violation of such a fundamental tenet of law can amount to a war crime. Issuing a ‘warning’ – such as Israel’s so-called roof knocking technique, or sending an SMS five minutes before the attack – does not mitigate this: it remains illegal to wilfully attack a civilian home without a demonstration of military necessity as it amounts to a violation of the principle of proportionality. Moreover, not only are these ‘warnings’ generally ineffective, and can even result in further fatalities, they appear to be a pre-fabricated excuse by Israel to portray people who remain in their homes as ‘human shields’.

The indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks, the targeting of objectives providing no effective military advantage, and the intentional targeting of civilians and civilian houses have been persistent features of Israel’s long-standing policy of punishing the entire population of the Gaza Strip, which, for over seven years, has been virtually imprisoned by Israeli imposed closure. Such a regime amounts to a form of collective punishment, which violates the unconditional prohibition set forth in Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention and has been internationally condemned for its illegality. However, far from being effectively opposed international actors, Israel’s illegal policy of absolute closure imposed on the Gaza Strip has relentlessly continued, under the complicit gaze of the international community of States.

***

The fundamental human rights of the entire Palestinian population have been systematically violated and suppressed with impunity for decades in the context of the prolonged Israeli occupation of Palestine. Far from being punished, and notwithstanding the broad condemnation of its unlawful and seemingly criminal actions, Israel has not been prevented from continuously suppressing the fundamental human rights of the entire Palestinian population.

As affirmed in 2009 by the FFM on the Gaza Conflict: “Justice and respect for the rule of law are the indispensable basis for peace. The prolonged situation has created a justice crisis in the Occupied Palestinian Territory that warrants action” (A/HRC/12/48, para. 1958) Indeed: “long-standing impunity has been a key factor in the perpetuation of violence in the region and in the reoccurrence of violations, as well as in the erosion of confidence among Palestinians and many Israelis concerning prospects for justice and a peaceful solution to the conflict”. (A/HRC/12/48, para. 1964)

Therefore,

  • ·         We welcome the Resolution adopted on the July 23th 2014 by the UN Human Rights Council, in which an independent, international commission of inquiry was established to investigate all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
  • ·         We call upon the United Nations, the Arab League, the European Union, individual States, in particular the United States of America, and the international community in its entirety and with its collective power to take action in the spirit of the utmost urgency to put an end to the escalation of violence against the civilian population of the Gaza Strip, and to activate procedures to hold accountable all those responsible for violations of international law, including political leaders and military commanders. In particular:

–          All regional and international actors should support the immediate conclusion of a durable, comprehensive, and mutually agreed ceasefire agreement, which must secure the rapid facilitation and access of humanitarian aid and the opening of borders to and from Gaza;

–          All High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions must be urgently and unconditionally called upon to comply with their fundamental obligations, binding at all times, and to act under common Article 1, to take all measures necessary for the suppression of grave breaches, as clearly imposed by Article 146 and Article 147 of the Fourth Geneva Convention;

–          Moreover, we denounce the shameful political pressures exerted by several UN Member States and the UN on President Mahmoud Abbas, to discourage recourse to the International Criminal Court (ICC), and we urge the Governmental leaders of Palestine to invoke the jurisdiction of the ICC, by ratifying the ICC treaty and in theinterim by resubmitting the declaration under Article 12(3) of the Rome Statute, in order to investigate and prosecute the serious international crimes committed on the Palestinian territory by all parties to the conflict; and

–          The UN Security Council must finally exercise its responsibilities in relation to peace and justice by referring the situation in Palestine to the Prosecutor of the ICC.

Watch: Nazi’s celebrate the slaughter of Palestinian children, call for murder of Arab legislators

NOVANEWS

The video above speaks for itself.

It shows Jewish Nazi fascists demonstrating in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv, on 26 July, chanting “There’s no school tomorrow, there are no children left in Gaza! Hurrah!”

Nazi fascists also called for the murder of two Israeli Arab legislators, Ahmad Tibi and Haneen Zoabi.

Tibi is leader of the Arab Movement for Change (Ta’al), an Arab party in I$raHell, and is Deputy Speaker of the I$raHell parliament, the Knesset.

Zoabi is the first Arab woman to be elected to the Zionist Knesset and has earned the wrath of Nazi Jewish fascists by speaking against Nazi crimes, racism and apartheid.

THE LARGEST WAVE OF DEMONSTRATIONS AND ARRESTS SINCE OCTOBER 2000

NOVANEWS
Our commitment to accountability similarly applies to Palestinian citizens inside Israel. This month, a wave of demonstrations look place in Palestinian towns and villages in Israel, and in mixed cities, in protest of Israel’s military attacks in the occupied West Bank, the murder of 15-year old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, the racist incitement of Israeli officials, and Israel’s military aggression in Gaza.

Israeli police and security forces dispersed the protests through the massive arrests of more than 500 demonstrators, as well as physical attacks on protesters, and by using dogs and ‘skunk’ water cannons. One-third of those arrested were children, with the police violating all of the special rulesthat apply to their arrest and detention as minors.Adalah’s lawyers represented scores of demonstrators, and will request investigations into violations of the law by the police, including police brutality against the protestors, to demand that those responsible for violations be held to account. These actions are crucial to protect Palestinian citizens’ right to freedom of expression and their right to protest.

WHY ACCOUNTABILITY MATTERS

NOVANEWS
After more than three weeks of Israel’s military offensive against the Gaza Strip, Palestinian civilians, including women and children, continue to pay the deadliest price. Israel’s indiscriminate bombings have killed over 1,000 Palestinians, at least 75% of whom are civilians; injured over 6,200; destroyed hundreds of family homes, a facility for disabled people, the water network, andhospitals and medical centers; and displaced over 215,000 Palestinians.

 

Since the beginning of the atrocities, Adalah and partner NGOs have sent complaints to the Israeli authorities demanding independent investigations into international law violations that constituted suspected war crimes against Gaza. But as many observers know, Israel rarely, if ever, conducts proper investigations into these issues or prosecutes those responsible for these offenses.So why do Adalah and other NGOs continue to demand them? Why did the UN Human Rights Council last week order the establishment of an international commission of inquiry into these events? This work for accountability matters because:

  • A lack of accountability fosters a culture of impunity and lawlessness; a culture of justice must be promoted to counter this;
  • Accountability for violations serves as a deterrence against future violations; it pressures perpetrators to abide by international law;
  • Victims are entitled to remedies for violations of their rights; tackling the justice crisis in the OPT fights for these rights.
These values, including respect for the right to life and dignity, are what drive our work and lead us to continue to demand accountability.

PALESTINIAN  CHILD , HALF  HER  HEAD  SHOT  OFF  BY  AN  ISRAELI  JEW

Palestinian child pleads for help

Lasha Darkmoon says: Seldom have I seen a more sickening atrocity picture. Send it to all your friends with a simple message attached:

JEWS ARE DOING THIS, AND THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT GIVES ITS FULL SUPPORT TO THESE SADISTIC CHILD KILLERS.

According to the Jew-controlled American mass media, it is the child-killing Israelis who deserve our deepest love and sympathy in the ongoing Gaza bloodbath.

As for the hundreds of dead Palestinian children, their heads blown off and lying in mangled heaps of blood-sodden bone on their mothers’ equally shattered bodies, we must rejoice in the death of these evil “terrorists”.

No, I do not exaggerate. If you think I am lying, listen to this sickening 11-minute video on Fox News.

This short video will show you that America has lost its moral compass: that America as a nation can sink no lower and deserves our utmost contempt: and that the American government, beyond redemption and evil to the bone, is now no more than a criminal syndicate of psychopaths.

If you want to see a psychotic bully, Sean Hannity, shout down a Palestinian guest on his TV program and display to the world his sick, twisted little soul, watch below.

Is killing civilians part of I$raHell plan?

NOVANEWS

Jonathan Cook writes:

Another day, another UN school hit by Israeli shelling in Gaza. Israel’s attack on the morning of 30 July killed at least 16 civilians sheltering at the school and wounded dozens. The casualties figures are expected to rise.

Israel and even most of its critics tell us that the civilian casualties are accidental, caused by Israel’s need to wage its war against Hamas in heavily built-up areas of Gaza. Israel is accused of “disproportionality”, or of recklessness, or of inflicting unfortunate collateral damage.

But here’s another possibility: that the people of Gaza, not just Hamas, are the target. That Israel’s generals don’t see much difference between the two.

Israel’s army is “degrading” – or “mowing the lawn”, in even worse military parlance – Gaza’s ability’s to resist. Not Hamas’ abilities, but Gaza’s. Because the problem lies not with Hamas. Hamas is simply a symptom, of the people of Gaza’s determination to liberate themselves from Israel’s siege.

A Palestinian man comforts his son after they lost a relative in the attack on the UN school in the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian man comforts his son after they lost a relative in the attack on the UN school in the Gaza Strip.

That is why the power plant was destroyed yesterday. That is why Israel has been starving Gaza for years through its siege, limiting the entry of basic foods and counting the minimum calories people need for bare survival – putting them on a diet, as one senior adviser jokingly termed it. That is why Gaza’s infrastructure is being trashed – the notorious Dahiya doctrine, devised by Israeli generals in 2006 as a way to force hostile populations back into the Stone Age, keeping them preoccupied with the essentials of life rather than demanding, or fighting, for their rights.

Israel knows it cannot destroy Hamas’s will to resist without destroying Gaza’s will to resist too. And that is what it looks like we are seeing played out here day-in, day-out. Civilians, it seems, must die to teach Gaza a lesson: you will submit.

[Editor’s note: Since Jonathan Cook wrote this blog post Israel has carried out another atrocity against the civilian population of Gaza. According to Al-Jazeera and other media:

At least 17 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded in the bombardment of a market area near Gaza City during a “humanitarian pause” unilaterally announced by Israel.

The attack came on the outskirts of Shujayea shortly after the Israeli army said it was observing a four-hour Wednesday [30 July] ceasefire from midday GMT…

Al-Jazeera understand that at least three air strikes or artillery rounds hit the area, which is a collection of warehouses, market area and stalls…]
