Haaretz editor: ‘for the Palestinians murder is a type of sport, perhaps a substitute for erotica’ by Sivan Tal

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 next statement is not less striking, as it actually calls for genocide or ethnic cleansing: “Regarding this evil and undignified people living among us, we can only yearn for the land to vomit it out, because it isn’t worthy of this land”. As we know from the past 100 years of history in Palestine, Zionists are big believers in the execution and fulfillment of their aspirations, making things happen rather than yearning.

Uninhabitable: Gaza Faces Moment of Truth by Jonathan Cook

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.

“Genocide” is an emotive term, and one few people wish to use in relation to Israel, given the extermination of many millions of European Jews at the hands of the Nazis. But it is a term that exists outside of, and apart from, the Holocaust. It has a meaning clearly defined in international law, and one that is key to analysing and evaluating political situations and their likely future trajectories. The term was coined precisely to offer tools for early detection so that genocides could be prevented from taking place, not simply labeled once the atrocity was over. To preclude genocide as a possible explanation for Israel’s behavior in Gaza is to prioritize the historic sensitivities of some Jews over the current, urgent and existential threats to a substantial part of the Palestinian people.

Guarding against genocide on The News

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.

Genocide Watch, a global NGO set up in 1999 to predict, prevent, stop and punish genocide as defined in the Genocide Convention, has issued a warning that there may be plans in place for genocide in Kashmir… This is not a situation the world can afford to take lightly. It is obvious that Kashmiris face very real danger. Analysts have been comparing their conditions of life to those of the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza strip. It would be unforgivable if the world did not act to save the people of Kashmir and prevent any kind of violence being directed against them in the name of an anti-terrorist operation or under some other pretext.

Anti-Israel protesters urge Ann Arbor council to approve 7-word resolution on MLive

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.

Blaine Coleman and Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, who have appeared before council with “Boycott Israel” signs for years to protest the killing of Palestinians, returned Monday night, Aug. 19. They urged council to adopt a seven-word resolution stating: “We are against military aid to Israel.”.. Savabieasfahani compared the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians to European colonizers killing Native Americans and building a new country “on their dead bodies.”
“Genocide is bad. Killing people who are living in their homes and not bothering you is bad,” she said.

Empires Start by Moving Outward…and Finish by Moving Inward by Rainer Shea

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.

Such examples of how capitalism and empire create genocide represent just a few of the ways that these systems entail the mass killing and collective traumatization of the people who the power structure sees as disposable. This death machine works in cycles, with the atrocities that Leeche listed being only a few of the steps that the cycles include.

… These methods of violently enforcing global capitalism around the world, whether the method is economic sanctions or direct warfare, are done with the goal of causing bodily and mental harm to the people of the disobedient countries. This is how Israel operates in its campaign to terrorize the Palestinian people into ceding their land to the Zionist project; deliberately killing Palestinian children and civilians, tightly policing Palestinian political speech, demolishing Palestinian homes, and keeping Palestinians within Israel’s territory under apartheid are Israel’s tools for trying to make the Palestinian people accept being colonized and their land monetized for the benefit of the more powerful nation.

As the collapse of capitalism and the U.S. empire continues, it will become increasingly apparent that Gaza may be functioning as an experimenting ground for the more extreme measures that the global oligarchs will likely use to maintain their control over the system.

The tragedy of Gaza’s children by Kevin Watkin

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.

This is one of those cases when we archive an article that doesn’t state the word ‘genocide’ in relation to Israel explicitly, but the information in it illustrates acts that amount to genocide against the indigenous Palestinian people, in the context of the phrase “unliveable”.

Two years ago, the United Nations described conditions for the two million people inhabiting the tiny coastal strip as increasingly “unlivable”. And the situation has deteriorated since then.
… Earlier this year, Save the Children, Unicef, and the World Food Programme conducted a survey to document the nutritional status of women and children in vulnerable communities across the Gaza Strip.
The results were shocking.

How Israel’s Erasure of Palestinian History Perpetuates Occupation on The Real News Network

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 academia is not a place where freedom of expression is being respected- and much more than that- this is a place that’s being complacent in the face of attempts for a culturcide and the erasure of collective memory, and evidence of the crimes committed in 1948… not only on this, because this particular episode is just a symptom of the overall campaign of Israel throughout the years, to not only erase Palestine and the Palestinians physically, but also to wipe them out, or expunge them, from historical memory and from history.

Israel must end its blockade of Gaza by Mohd Nazari Ismail, BDS Malaysia

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.

This is the inescapable reality on the ground, a reality reflected by various resolutions of international bodies that the Gaza siege is tantamount to collective punishment and a war crime. It is not a reviving of an old tired debate. It is merely a recognition of which party is fully responsible for the slow genocide of Gaza’s children and should bear the full brunt of international pressure to end the blockade of Gaza.

Kashmir and Palestine share the struggle for self determination against colonial occupation by Zainab Ramahi

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.

Many have written about an imminent ethnic cleansing in Kashmir. As anthropologist Patrick Wolfe has noted, “the question of genocide is never far from discussions of settler colonialism.” As a Palestinian and Kashmiri there is little escape from the violence of the colonial machine. As I sit with my family and wait on news – any news – the only thing I can think to do is write.

… Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced to stage mass protest at D-Chowk on Friday at 2:30 pm against unilateral abrogation of Article 370 and amassing more Indian troops in IHK for Israel styled genocide and mass scale population transfers.
