SJP Loyola About Page Charges Israel with Genocide of the Palestinian People

As an advocacy group, SJP is committed to a core set of principles to which it expects its members to adhere. SJP believes that while the Palestinian people must ultimately be able to decide their future in Palestine, certain key principles, grounded in international law, human rights, and basic standards of justice, are fundamental to a just resolution of the plight of the Palestinians. These include the full decolonization of all illegally held Palestinian lands, the end of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem. SJP aims to struggle against human rights violations, aggression, war crimes, and genocide inflicted on the Palestinian people.

YouthDebates.com forum: Israel Guilty of Genocide?

“Saw this article on BBC News where an activist group has released a report suggesting that Israeli forces in the 2014 Gaza War were told not to discriminate between any Palestinians. Therefore this suggests that Israel observes every Palestinian as its enemy. Would this suggest factors of genocide in Israeli policy regarding Palestine? all presuming this reports correct and accurate”

Is “genocide” a Trademark only for Jews? Benny Ziffer seems to think so! by The Palestine Project

He also believes that the Armenian Genocide and the Palestinian Nakba are just a “salient product of postmodernism” and a “historical mockery.”… Perhaps it’s all in our imagination and nothing really happened in 1915 or 1948. Perhaps even last year’s war on Gaza was just a dream.

The ‘Right’ to Maim: Disablement and Inhumanist Biopolitics in Palestine by Jasbir K. Puar

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.
Maiming thus functions not as an incomplete death, or an accidental assault on life, rather the end goal in the dual production of permanent disability via the infliction of harm and the attrition of the life support systems that might allow populations to heal from this harm. Maiming is required. Not merely a by-product of war, of war’s collateral damage, it is used to achieve the tactical aims of settler colonialism. This functions on two levels: the maiming of humans within a context that is utterly and systematically resource-deprived, an infrastructural field that is unable to transform the cripple into the disabled. This point is crucial, for part of what gels the disabled body that is hailed by rights discourses is the availability of the process of rehabilitation. And second, the maiming of infrastructure in order to stunt or decay the able-bodied into debilitation through the control of calories, water, electricity, health care supplies, and fuel (Seikaly 2012; Weizman 2012). The understanding of maiming as a specific aim of biopolitics puts pressure on the framing of settler colonialism as a project of elimination of the indigenous through either genocide or assimilation. It asks us to re-evaluate the frame of biopolitics in relation to the forms of maiming (and stunting, which I will discuss shortly) that have gone on for centuries in settler colonial occupations. Examining the role of maiming, not only in Palestine (though that is my prime focus here) but also in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the United States puts analytic pressure on the assumption that the goal of settler colonialism is necessarily elimination (see Stevenson 2012).

Techno-Financial Capital and Genocide of the Poorest of the Poor by James Petras

In the Levant, Palestinians, now the poorest of the poor and the most disenfranchised, face continued Israeli land grabs, pillage and violence in the West Bank and genocidal attacks in Gaza.

Petition to Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon: Include Israel’s Army on UN List of Serious Violators of Children’s Rights

Petition to Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon: Include Israel’s Army on UN List of Serious Violators of Children’s Rights… This listing with the Israeli forces on it, would propel Israel further towards pariah status within international bodies and could lead to UN sanctions which are at this point, after seventy years of denial, oppression and slow genocide, all the people of Palestine have to stop these crimes against humanity.

Normalising links with Israel in defiance of public opinion by Abderrahim Chalfaouat

Israel, in its attempt to legitimise its crimes, draws an analogy between its occupation of historical Palestine, its current atrocities against the Palestinians, and Arab occupation of North Africa in early Islam. The plan depends on a number of contradictory elements. The first is likening Islam’s early years to the Holocaust, even though the Palestinians, who are facing genocide at the hands of the Zionists today, did not themselves commit any crimes against Europe’s Jews.

Fury as Israel Refuses Visa to South African Politician by L. Herbst

Nzimande who is also general secretary of the South African Communist Party claimed in the past that Israel was waging a “vicious campaign” against the Palestinians and called for South Africa to boycott Israeli imports in retaliation. He said that the Palestinians are being massacred for the crime of demanding the return of their land and self-determination. “This genocidal campaign must be condemned in the strongest terms possible,” he said.
