“Fuck it, wipe out Gaza,” says spokesman for new EU campaign by Ali Abunimah and Dena Shunra

The European Union has hired an Israeli who advocates genocidal violence against Palestinians as the face of a new promotional campaign. Avishai Ivri appears in a video the EU embassy in Tel Aviv posted on its Facebook page last month…

Ivri was a writer for Latma, a defunct Israeli sketch show that reflected extreme right-wing and racist views, such as depicting migrants and refugees from African states as apes.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

During Israel’s November 2012 attack on Gaza that killed 174 Palestinians, Ivri advocated even more extreme violence.

“Here’s a strategy that hasn’t been tried out yet: 1,000 Arabs killed for each one of our people killed. I think they owe us 5,000 from last week.” he tweeted.

“Fuck it, wipe out Gaza,” Ivri urged during the same attack.

‘Can Gaza be thrown in the sea?’ asks Israeli politician on Middle East Monitor

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

The chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee in the Israeli parliament has asked if the Gaza Strip can be “thrown in the sea,” Shehab news agency reported on Monday. His question echoes that of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. Avi Dichter made his comment on Israel’s Channel 2 TV. “In 1992, before Oslo, there was a bloody wave of attacks from and in Gaza,” he explained. “At one of the meetings, Rabin entered and suddenly asked: ‘Let me know, can the Gaza Strip be cut with a saw and thrown in the sea?.. All of them looked at me because I was the Shabak [internal security agency] chief in Gaza and I said: ‘Mr Prime Minister, we are working on this.’

“Death to the Arabs” rally draws thousands in Tel Aviv by Ali Abunimah

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

We usually only post articles that explicitly contain the word “genocide” in them, as we try to provide analysis rather than news items. However we find this particular coverage of yesterday’s events to strongly imply the crime of incitement to genocide on a mass scale, from the Prime Minister, to the courts, to celebrities, to the Israeli public at large. We view this event, and political developments in Israel around this particular execution of Abd al-Fattah Yusri al-Sharif as a decisive moment in the history of the state of  Israel’s ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people:

In Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square on Tuesday evening, thousands of Israelis rallied in support of Elor Azarya, the soldier filmed executing a gravely wounded Palestinian last month. Rally-goers shouted anti-Arab slogans and attacked persons perceived as being leftists or journalists. Hours earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a call for leniency for the soldier… independent reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations… Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign [in English] displayed at the rally reading “Kill them all.”.. The rally was organized by Sharon Gal, an Israeli journalist and former lawmaker, and was addressed by Azarya’s parents. Several Israeli pop icons were also scheduled to entertain the rally-goers, including singers Moshik Afia, Maor Edri and Amos Elgali, as well as rapper Subliminal, the Israeli website Ynet reported… Israel at first announced Azarya would be charged with murder, but following a surge of public support, the charges were downgraded to manslaughter.
