Israel’s Final Solution to the ‘Palestine Problem’ by Richard Silverstein

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.

Last week, I heard MK Betzalel Smotrich present, before an esteemed group of public officials from the religious Zionist movement, his “decisive plan”–a plan to finally end the conflict and defeat it [Palestinian nationalism].  A plan, whose goal is to cut off any hope for Palestinian nationhood.  Three options will be put before the Palestinians (and possibly also the “Arabs of Israel,” that’s not clear):

  1. continue to live in the [occupied] territories that will be annexed to the State of Israel, without the right to vote for Knesset.  Their status will be as alien residents which, according to him, follows Jewish law which declares they must always be a bit inferior [to Jewish status].
  2. leave the country
  3. those who do not accept either of the two previous options–the IDF will know what to do.

When he was asked: “You’re also speaking of killing children and women from families who are not willing to accept these conditions?”  The answer was: “Yes.  When in war, as in war.”

Angry protesters greet Israeli justice minister in Berlin (i24News, 2015)

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.

Left-wing activists and BDS supporters gathered outside the Justice ministry, where Shaked opened a conference titled “Democracy and the Rule of Law,” with German Minister of Justice Heiko Maas… “She was talking about genocide, and in Germany, her statements would probably have landed her in jail,” said Iris Hefets of “Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East,” which organized the rally alongside several BDS groups. The organization also sent letters to the heads of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, urging then to reconsider their decision to host a dinner in honor of Shaked.

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.

Israeli settler praised for throwing pork on body of Palestinian by Rania Khalek

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.

Online incitement by Israelis against Palestinians has skyrocketed in recent weeks, according to a report in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper… a video surfaced showing an Israeli throwing pork at al-Jabari’s body as he lay on a stretcher. As the man dangles the meat before the camera and then drops it on al-Jabari’s face, he shouts, “Here, see this? This is pig meat. Friends, just in case you don’t know it, they really love pig meat. … He should enjoy with his virgins, with the pig meat.”… Anti-Semites, ironically, have used the same logic to attack Jewish symbols and insult Jews. Last May, for instance, pork was left at a Holocaust memorial in Massachusetts…Israeli Internet incitement may be on the rise, but it is hardly a new phenomenon.

What is clear is that the genocidal hatred many Israelis express online does not stay there. It has already spilled into the streets.

Netanyahu’s ‘Genocidal’ Cabinet Promises More Conflict, Isolation For Israel by Joe Catron

“The new Israeli cabinet is a sure-fire recipe for genocide and a more rapid ethnic cleansing of Palestine,” Refaat Alareer, a writer and literature professor at the Islamic University of Gaza, said. “At least half a dozen of the cabinet members have called openly and proudly for genocide against Palestinians and/or opposed the establishment of a Palestinian state,” he added… If Ya’alon contemplates genocide, as his statements indicate, some of his coalition partners do not seem to think it can come fast enough…”

Let’s Talk About Genocide: Shurat HaDin and the Genocide Legalization Conference by Tali Shapiro

Shurat HaDin is a practical organization, hence it doesn’t foresee that Israel could credibly be charged in the ICC with genocide, along with crimes against humanity and war crimes. But genocide is a wider-context crime. So at a time when Israel is engaged at an excelerating pace with actions intended on the destruction of a people, Shurat HaDin is busy suing human rights advocates that protest this genocidal web of actions and policies, and advocating for the impunity for Israel to kill even more civilians. Not only is Shurat HaDin’s conference a party of the crime Incitement to Genocide, if Israel is ever charged with the Crime of Genocide, Shurat Ha’din itself might face charges of complicity.

People’s tribunals, and the roots of civil society justice by Richard Falk

Most recently, in September 2014, in response to the Israeli attack on Gaza, given the name Operation Protective Edge, the Russell Foundation convened an event in Brussels in which a jury of conscience listened to evidence, and particularly considered charges of ‘genocide’ put forward by critics of the attack…

It should also be observed that the Brussels Tribunal failed to uphold the most serious charge leveled against Israel in relation to Protective Edge, that the massive assault carried out against the defenseless civilian population of Gaza constituted genocide. On the basis of the evidence presented, the jury in Brussels did agree that Israel was guilty of the lesser crime of ‘Incitement to Genocide’ as set forth in Article 3(c) of the Genocide Convention.  It also agreed that the additional treaty duty to prevent genocide had been definitely violated by Israeli behavior during Protective Edge…
