Son of Nazi concentration camp victims warns Israel is planning Palestine genocide By 5Pillars

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.

Academic and filmmaker Professor Haim Bresheeth told the Genocide Memorial Day conference in London yesterday that the sons and daughters of the victims of the Nazi genocide are now committing a genocide against the Palestinians.


He said: “A genocide is planned by the extreme Israeli government and if we don’t act to stop it, it will happen at a moment of their choice. And it happens in instalments – it happened in Gaza, it happened in Lebanon and they are now planning for a total decimation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine.”

Analysis: History has humiliated May over ‘terrorist’ Mandela – supporters of apartheid Israel will be next by David Jamieson

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.

Exploitation or genocide?

These are the limits to the apartheid analogy. Ultimately, the South African regime was overthrown by the black working class, who were empowered by the white minority’s dependence on their labour.

The Israeli state depends on massive foreign aid, not Palestinian labour. Consequently, huge numbers of Palestinians are unemployed and living in extreme poverty. Economic life in parts of Palestine, particularly the brutalised Gaza strip, has essentially broken down.

But the limits to the analogy are instructive to the violent dynamic of Israeli occupation. The Palestinians confront the Israeli state not as a dangerous necessity, but as an obstacle without value to the state.

That is why rather than exploit Palestinians, the Israeli state kills them, starves them, humiliates them, throws them off their land and forces them into exile.

In most of the textbooks given to Israeli children at state school, the occupied West Bank and Gaza do not exist. The Palestinian people are gone.

Anti-Semitism and Labour: Muzzling free speech silences rightful criticism of Israel by Ahmad Tibi

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 gives me no pleasure to write this, but it must be clearly stated for the record: of late, top Israeli political and religious leaders have even incited genocide against the Palestinian people. Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef ruled in March that non-Jewish people, including Palestinians, have no right to live in the country.

… Most worrisome, this racist rhetoric is increasingly influencing the Israeli public, shifting it further and further to the far right. What human rights horrors could this lead to, if left unchecked?
