Palestinicide(s) by Denijal Jegić

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 refusal to discuss Israel as potentially genocidal is another documentation of the academic, political, and legal dehumanization of Palestinians, since acknowledging, or even elaborating on, the exercise of a genocide against a people presupposes the inclusion of this people into the category of humanity. The disregard for Palestinian lives, however, is not an event, but a structure deeply embedded in Euro-American cultures, in which Palestinians cannot be considered victims, or, being worthy of genocidal extermination.

How the Media Is Peddling the Dangerous Myth of Palestinian “Self-Genocide” by Denijal Jegić

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.

As these examples demonstrate, corporate media has moved from concealing Israel’s violence to openly justifying its genocidal acts as necessary counter-terrorism policy. As patently absurd as these narratives are, they continue to  be a potent and dangerous force in normalizing Israel’s ethnocratic settler-colonial project. Blaming Hamas and portraying it as an almighty force intent on destroying Israel is used to dehumanize and demonize all Palestinians, who are stripped of their agency. Through this rhetoric, outlets like The New York Times implicitly justify the extermination of the Palestinian people.

The “Great Return March” and Another Massacre in Gaza on Muftah

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.

For this year’s anniversary, Palestinians in Gaza organized a collective, anti-colonial demonstration. It not only addressed Israel’s failure to respect and honor the right of return for Palestinians refugees (as promulgated by UN Resolution 194), but also the increasing humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. Due to Israel’s decade-long sea, land, and air siege, Gazans have been suffering from shortages of food, water, and electricity, while collectively ghettoized and incarcerated in the world’s most densely populated territory. On top of that, Israel has regularly bombarded Gaza – including during its genocidal 2014 war– and used it as a testing ground for its military technology.

The Fear of Palestinian Existence by Denijal Jegić

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.

Fear has consistently shaped Zionism’s approach towards the indigenous Palestinians. As Palestinians have been blamed for merely standing in the way of the colonizer, their removal which has entailed multidimensional policies of ethnic cleansing and genocide, has been rhetorically rationalized through Orientalist transformations of Palestinians from the original owners of the land into “Islamist” terrorists. While Palestinians face a multitude of structural and physical violence, reoccurring culminations of Israeli aggressions resulting in the mass production of Palestinian death have repeatedly highlighted the always-already dehumanized position of Palestinians in the Western political and public sphere.
