Israel’s genocidal political culture 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.

On 11 October 1994, Israeli lawmaker Rehavam Ze’evi and his wife Yael sent a brief letter to Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara congratulating the couple on the birth of their son Avner.

Netanyahu was at the time the head of the Likud Party and the leader of Israel’s official opposition.

“Dear Sara and Bibi,” the letter begins. “Many Jewish children and the transfer of the Arabs are the answer to the demographic problem. Mazel tov!”

David Cameron staunchly supported Israel’s genocide: Weapon sales Not in millions but billions on Adonis Diaries

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.
David Cameron has offered the UK’s support to Israel in response to ‘appalling’ attacks carried out by Hamas. “The Prime Minister reiterated the UK’s staunch support for Israel in the face of such attacks, and underlined Israel’s right to defend itself from them.” Netanyahu has warned that Hamas will pay a “heavy price” for the rocket attacks and at least 47 people have been killed by Israeli air strikes in Gaza since yesterday, according to Palestinian officials. Britain admits selling $12 billion in weapons to Israel.

These are the Israeli leaders who want to destroy al-Aqsa by Dan Cohen

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.

Yisrael Ariel, the chief rabbi of the Temple movement, articulated an apocalyptic end times scenario in 2015.

“[God] is the one who commanded us to go from city to city conquering them, and to impose the seven laws [of the Sons of Noah] throughout the world,” Ariel said.

Ariel added that if Muslims and Christians “raise the flag of [surrender] and say, ‘From now on, there is no more Christianity and no more Islam,’ and the mosques and Christian spires come down,” then they would be allowed to live. “If not,” he warned, “you kill all of their males by sword. You leave only the women.”

“We will conquer Iraq, Turkey [and] we will get to Iran too,” Ariel proclaimed.

Ariel is the founder and head of the Temple Institute, the government-funded group that has published detailed blueprints and a computer animation of what the Temple, to be built over the ruins of al-Aqsa, will look like.

The Temple Institute has received funding from Israel’s education ministry to develop a curriculum to instill “longing for the Temple” in children as young as those attending kindergarten. In 2013, Israel’s mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkatpresented Ariel with an award for his organization’s work.

This genocidal ideology is rooted in religious Zionism and its political wing is represented by the Jewish Home party… This messianic extremism has taken hold in the Likud Party of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well.

“Forgive Us Dear Palestinians, We Have Lost Gandhi and Deserted You” by Manoj Kumar Jha on The Citizen

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.

In the noise of ‘strategic and commercial treaties’ with the true friend, my Prime Minister and his delegation members conveniently forgot Nakba– an instance of ethnic-cleansing incomparable in human history took place. They also chose to be callously indifferent to the de-nationalisation of your history.

Forgive us our Palestinian friends! Seventy years after our independence we have come to be partners in the crime committed against you, by aligning with those who are responsible for perpetrating ‘incremental genocide.’

This is Netanyahu’s horror: “An open unleashing of raw racism that has always been a part of Israeli society” by Cecilie Surasky

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 irony, of course, or perhaps it’s no coincidence, is that for so long, it has been a truism that one is simply forbidden to raise any comparison whatsoever between Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and the Nazis’ treatment of the Jews. And it’s true, nothing can compare to the enormous killing machine the Nazis created whose only goal was to efficiently murder as many “inferior people” as possible.

But Nazism was not only the gas chambers of Auschwitz and Treblinka. It was based on a system of biological superiority. And when I first heard older leftist Israeli Jews who had been refugees from Hitler’s policies say they recognized some similarities in modern day Israel, I was too shocked to process it. But over time, for me, those linkages have become inescapable, and I have come to believe that remaining silent about them only increases the likelihood of them worsening.

Letter from America: When paranoia rules, everything seems so kosher! by Dr. Habib Siddiqui

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.

It is not difficult to connect the extra-judicial criminal activities of the Jewish settlers and the IDF against the Palestinian civilians with the toxic religious indoctrination that they have been receiving from hateful Rabbis. Let’s also not forget why they feel so untouchable for such crimes. They have their patron as the head of the government. Lest we forget most of the support for the rogue government of Benjamin Netanyahu actually comes from these extremist Jews who consider killing Palestinian a religious duty in the occupied territories.

Netanyahu’s apartheid regime is criminally silent on the crimes of his fellow settlers, and their Rabbis who justify violence against unarmed Palestinians. Israeli “justice” minister Ayelet Shaked (who slandered Palestinian children in genocidal terms as “little snakes” during last year’s war on the Gaza Strip) and a former deputy-speaker of the Knesset have openly called for genocide against Palestinians (he called for all Palestinians to be forced out of Gaza and put in “encampments,” where they would be “concentrated.”). And there are many more members within the government and the Knesset that have called for such extermination campaigns against Palestinians.

Why is Benjamin Netanyahu trying to whitewash Hitler? 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.

The Israeli prime minister’s attempt to whitewash Hitler and lay the blame for the Holocaust at the door of Palestinians signals a major escalation of his incitement against and demonization of the people living under his country’s military and settler-colonial rule.

It also involves a good deal of Holocaust denial…

That Husseini met Hitler and had relations with the Nazis is no secret. But the fabrications of Netanyahu and other Zionists should be seen for what they are: an attempt to falsely blame Palestinians for Europe’s genocide of Jews and in the process erase from memory Zionism’s own collaborationist history with Hitler’s genocidal regime.

This vile propaganda can have no other purpose than to further dehumanize Palestinians and justify Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing and murder.

Netanyahu’s attempt to blame Palestinians for the Holocaust is itself a form of genocidal incitement.

Sudan: Netanyahu and Al-Bashir Should Have Their Day in Court by The Namibian

Please make a donation at our Indiegogo fundraising campaign.

Should the ICC indict the four-time Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for war crimes and genocide being committed in the occupied/colonised Palestine, it will make history… Unlike Al-Bashir, Netanyahu has not been directly charged but he has slammed the decision by the International Criminal Court to launch a preliminary investigation into possible war crimes in the Palestinian territories, calling such a move “absurd”. He says Palestinians do not have a state and can only get one through direct negotiations with Israel. “No state, no standing, and no case.” Quite a stupid argument to say the least. But thank God – the ICC has now admitted Palestine as a member.
