Nazi military bombed his family to death. Now he’s taking the bastards to court

Ziada war crimes lawsuit fund

At long last someone is making a move to bring two of the most wanted Israeli war criminals to book. Will you help?

Stuart Littlewood writes:

The Ziada family from Gaza was all but wiped out by Israel’s murderous bombardment during the 2014 Operation Protective Edge, when a bomb buried them under three storeys of rubble. Among the dead lay Ismail Ziada’s mother, three brothers, his sister-in-law, a 12-year-old nephew and a visiting friend. Ismail himself happens to be a Dutch citizen resident in the Netherlands, so he wasn’t in Gaza at the time.

And fortunately the Netherlands, unlike the spineless UK, still upholds a system of universal jurisdiction in civil proceedings for its citizens who are unable to gain access to justice elsewhere.

According to an informed source, Ziada hired a lawyer specialising in support for victims of war crimes and human rights violations, and papers were served on the Israeli military’s chief of General Staff at the time of the bombing, Benny Gantz, and the commander of the Israeli air force, Amir Eshel. It was assumed that neither would respond and court proceedings would be conducted in absentia. Surprisingly, Gantz and Eshel both submitted a response claiming immunity and alleging that the Dutch court had no jurisdiction. They argue that Ziada can access justice in Israel. But the recent Israeli court ruling against Dr Izzeldin Abuelaish, who filed for compensation against the Israeli state over the killing of three of his daughters in Israeli army shelling in 2009, nails that lie.

“So far Ziada has used his own funds and contributions from friends and supporters to pursue the case on behalf of all the victims of Israeli war crimes. But to achieve justice he’ll need wider moral and financial support. The target is 50,000 euros.”

The Ziada writ focuses on the fact that the bombing of the family home was illegal and a war crime under international law. Next month, we’re told, there will be a court hearing – the first of its kind. If it works out well for Ziada it is anticipated that Gantz and Eshel will push the matter up to the Dutch Supreme Court, which could take years and incur significant expense.

So far Ziada has used his own funds and contributions from friends and supporters to pursue the case on behalf of all the victims of Israeli war crimes. But to achieve justice he’ll need wider moral and financial support. The target is 50,000 euros.

The good news is that the circumstances are such that this case has the potential to blow a hole in the Zionist regime’s arrogant belief that it is exceptional and above the law. Pressed home with enough determination and cash it could be the game-changer that creates the legal precedent decent folk around the world have prayed for. The word is that any compensation received will go into a fund for Palestinian war crime victims in general and children in particular.

Gantz and Eshel are military thugs of a particularly loathsome kind. Both waged war on Lebanon and played leading parts in the series of genocidal assaults on Gaza, the worst being Operation Protective Edge which, according to Israel’s B’Tselem, killed over 2,200 Palestinians, including 547 infants and children.

Gantz is a wannabee political leader challenging Netanyahu in the coming Israeli elections. Heading his new Israel Resilience Party, he pledges to strengthen illegal Israeli settlement blocs and says that Israel will never leave the Golan Heights, stolen from Syria. How nice is that?

Zionist regime plan for post-Brexit Britain

Israel’s plan for post-Brexit Britain
Israel's plan for Brexit UK

Introduction by Gilad Atzmon

“If you have been puzzled by the insane campaign against British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, spearheaded by the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Jewish Chronicle, the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, and others, the Ynetarticle raises the possibility that the campaign has not actually been about ‘anti-Semitism’. It is more likely about shekels, in that Corbyn in Number 10 Downing Street could easily interfere with ‘Israel’s plans for Britain’.”

The following is a translation of the last segment of an article on Brexit published in Israel’s Ynetnews website on 3 February. The article explains that the Jewish State has located itself as post-Brexit Britain’s gateway to the world. It says: “Once out of the EU, Britain will have to sign separate trade agreements with each state, and Israel will be the first.”It continues: “Israel has become Britain’s strategic ally.” And, of course, “the British government totally disregards the boycott campaign against Israel. On a political level, they boycotted the boycott.”

A few years ago we learned that back in 1982 Oded Yinon devised an Israeli “plan for the Middle East”. The following Ynet segment provides us with a glimpse into the current “Israel’s plan for Britain”.

If you have been puzzled by the insane campaign against British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, spearheaded by the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Jewish Chronicle, the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, and others, the Ynet article raises the possibility that the campaign has not actually been about “anti-Semitism”. It is more likely about shekels, in that Corbyn in Number 10 Downing Street could easily interfere with “Israel’s plans for Britain”.

The Ynet article may also help Britons understand the bipartisan forces that are operating intensively to push Britain to break away from the European Union. For some reason, some of the staunch Israel supporters within the government and in the Parliament are also pushing hard for Brexit. Ask yourself: Do they do it for Britain, Britons and the British national interest or are they, once again, serving the interests of that dark and oppressive foreign state, Israel?

Below are the excerpts from Ynet , translated by Gilad Atzmon. Emphasis added throughout. (For the original article in Hebrew, click here.)

The Brexit hurricane

“… It turns out that on some fronts the British began to prepare in advance. When Britain decided to withdraw from the European Union, it was even more enthusiastic about reaching agreements to sign bilateral trade agreements, this time not through the EU, but with countries around the world. The Britons saw the signing of these trade agreements as evidence of Britain’s steadfastness. Time and time again, British leaders, headed by Teresa May, said that “Britain can maximise its business and commercial potential beyond the EU as well”. Israel was one of the first stations in that campaign. Once out of the EU, Britain will have to sign such agreements with each state, and Israel will be the first.

In recent years, Israel has become Britain’s strategic ally. Innovation, technological, intelligence and cyber capabilities have made Israel one of the most popular potential partners for Britain. The volume of trade between the two countries rose to a record $11 billion last year, of which $5 billion was Israeli exports to Britain, and the rest was British imports from Israel. After the United States, Britain is the largest exporter to Israel. Trade relations span a wide range of fields – energy, pharmaceuticals, food and technology – and the British government total disregards the boycott organisations against Israel. On the political level, it boycotted the boycott.

In the past year, teams from the British and Israeli economy ministries have gathered to discuss bilateral trade agreements. They had to draft new agreements, since the current trade agreements between the two countries were within the framework of the European Union. Ohad Cohen, head of the Foreign Trade Department in the Ministry of the Economy who was in charge of the talks on the Israeli side, said that the British had entered talks with a simple task: to continue without unnecessary shocks and to repeat most of the clauses in the agreement that Israel signed with the EU in 1995.

“They came and said: ‘Whatever was, will be,’” Cohen said. “In other words, they wanted Israel to continue to trade with Britain on the same terms, with full customs exemptions, and to make very small changes to existing agreements, especially in quantities. Britain has named Israel as one of the first countries with which it wants to sign a bilateral agreement, and it is important for the British government to ensure that the commercial ties between the two countries are not harmed.”

According to Cohen, the negotiations were oblivious to the many changes that have stirred the British political system in the past year. The British did not arrive with any panic for the negotiations with Israel, not even when ministers resigned one by one and Theresa May’s government was crushed under the wheels of Brexit. “The only difference is that they were required to set up a unit that deals with trade agreements, which they did not have before, because before everything went through the EU institutions in Brussels,” says Cohen.

Thus, in the coming month a trade agreement between the two countries is expected to be signed. After Israel, Britain expects to sign trade agreements with some 70 other countries, including its closest ally, the US. The agreement with the Americans is very important, because for a Brexit government this is a prestigious card and proof that Britain can stand on its feet even outside the European Union…”

UK: Islington Council spent £136,000 to stop pro-Palestinian musician

Gilad Atzmon writes:

The corrupt Labour-run Islington Council has disclosed that it spent the staggering sum of £136,000 (one hundred and thirty-six thousand pounds, or $178,000) on legal fees in its efforts to stop me from playing the saxophone with the Blockheads at a Christmas concert.

Islington Labour Council claims to be impoverished and, as a result, it has evicted disabled people, it struggles with housing and can’t find the necessary cash to feed impoverished kids in school. Despite that, the council used £136,000 of the taxpayers’ money to try to interfere with the arts, freedom of expression and a Christmas musical celebration. If this story doesn’t become a huge scandal, it would mean that Britain is no longer a free country.

Background

On 3 December, Islington Council received an emailfrom Likud Uk Director Martin Rankoff. Rankoff claimed to be so upset by my appearance at a council venue that he would be forced not to attend. Council Leader Richard Watts took immediate action. In anemail to Rankoff he vowed to prevent me from appearing with the Blockheads. On 4 December the council sent a letter to the Blockheads informing them that they had to remove me from the  concert or face a cancellation. The band was indignant that the council was interfering with their performance and published a very strong statement opposing the council’s demand. I hired a legal team to help me fight the council’s autocratic demand.

For its part, the bankrupt council hired Simkinslaw firm. Simkins, already one of Britain’s most expensive legal firms, deployed two partners for the task of stopping me playing the saxophone. Not surprisingly, one of these partners had represented US ultra Zionist tycoon Sheldon Adelson, a benefactor of both President Trump and Likud leader and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

A few days before the concert, I publicised the matter, having decided that the public deserved to know how their council was spending its time and their money. And I was determined to expose the troubling collusion between the Labour Council and Likud UK.

A petition expressing disgust with the council was launched and quickly gathered almost 7,000 signatures, but the council refused to employ common sense. Thousands of complaints were filed with the council. But the Labour council preferred to listen to the Likud UK director. I was told that the council was spending tens of thousands of pounds on legal fees to justify its unlawful act. Some of my supporters filed Freedom of Information requests to find out how much Councillor Watts’s “decision” cost Islington’s residents.

“The message to peace loving Britons is clear: despite our love for Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party in its current form is a cancerous, rotten collective. Not only is it unqualified to lead, its proximity to a government puts the future of Britain as a free society at grave risk.”

I thought there had been an outlandish waste of £40,000-60,000. Today, through the Freedom of Information replies, we learned that the corrupt Labour politicians spent three times that amount. And in response to a request for an explanation of the council’s actions, the Labour councillors showed that they were not even brave enough to take responsibility for their own wasteful and absurd actions. Their claim was that the council’s employees had been the decision makers:

The operative decision to ban Mr Atzmon was not taken by a councillor. Rather, the decision was taken by Martin Bevis, Assistant Director Financial Operations and Customer Service, and that decision was upheld on appeal by Ian Adams, Director Financial Operations and Customer Services.

It seems unlikely that Martin Bevis and Ian Adams were the decision makers. If they were, the council should explain how it managed to spend a six-figure sum on lawyers.

The message to peace loving Britons is clear: despite our love for Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party in its current form is a cancerous, rotten collective. Not only is it unqualified to lead, its proximity to a government puts the future of Britain as a free society at grave risk.

My friend, Iranian American author Negar Azizmoradi, gives us this parable. A frog thrown into a pot of boiling water will immediately jump out but a frog placed in a pot of cold water that is slowly heated to a boil will not save itself. It will be cooked to death. Britons, like Americans, French and other Westerners, have been steamed for a while. Corbyn has been submerged in the heating water for the last three years. We are running out of the time to jump out. If we don’t put this madness to an end, we’re all going to end up as rotting corpses in a chicken soup.

But this story has a good ending. While Islington Council was quick to waste its residents’ tax money on lawyers, I managed to channel my art through Santa Claus, probably my best student ever:
