UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, International Criminal Court Prosecutor, International Court of Justice President: Investigate the Possibility that Israel is Committing the Crime of Genocide Against the Indigenous Palestinian People.
There is one topic in America today which few will fund, no network will broadcast, and distributors are afraid to take on. This is not because it is baseless, frivolous or ephemeral. While gross violations of the Geneva Conventions, political repression, economic strangulation, racism, Apartheid and creeping genocide can be exposed across the globe, this particular example cannot be honestly or deeply addressed inside the U.S.
Reacting to Israel’s killing this morning of two young Palestinian men in Tulkarm, Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said Israel’s sense of impunity encourages it to commit crimes against the Palestinians…“The martyrs Shafiee and Kharyoush are two new victims of organized terrorism practiced by the occupation soldiers against our people, as they carry out their portable crimes with extra-judicial executions, without the slightest care for international laws and humanitarian laws. They are tyrannized by the lust for murder that feeds on the doctrine of burning, erasure, and genocide,”
For [Ursula von] der Leyen to see dynamism, ingenuity and groundbreaking innovations instead of genocide, persecution and settlement colonialism is a willing suspension of truth. Bloom or blood, der Leyen?
What is even more disturbing is this: leading newspapers in the West have chosen not to challenge der Leyen’s false narrative. Unlike them, this newspaper has chosen to bury this European myth once and for all. The desert of Palestine bloomed long before the Europeans settled the genocidal Zionists in the holy land.
One day young Jews will demand that the Nakba be named and consecrated inside liberal American Jewish entities that armed the ethnic cleansing, and denied it. They will demand the inclusion of Palestinians who describe the Nakba as a “genocide.”
“Concerning genocide: This is something I intend to look into very carefully. There is the question of intent that needs to be absolutely explored, investigated, and documented. So I know that many use the term genocide to already qualify what’s happening. I personally refrain from it because I want to be absolutely sure of the argument when I make it. And I will get there. I will get there, because I see what’s happening and there is a level of persecution and combination of violations that speak to genocide.”
Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan announced that “Israel will not take part” in the UN Security Council session regarding the Palestinian issue, alleging “extreme bias” at a time when “Israel” continues its systematic genocide of the Palestinian people. Before he left the room, Erdan claimed, “If this council refuses to respect their [fallen soldiers] memory, I will dedicate this speech to their memory. I light this candle, Mr. President, to honor them, and may their memory be blessed. I’m sorry, but I refuse to spend this sacred day listening to lies and condemnation. This debate disgraces the fallen, and Israel will not take part in it.”
Mahmoud Khalil, one of the Montreal 4 Palestine organizers…. voiced his condemnation of the Canadian government’s actions towards the attack on Palestinians. “It’s always good to voice our rejection of the Canadian government as an ally to Israel. It’s sad to see the Canada that stands for human rights actually always turns a blind eye to human rights when it comes to their ally Israel, and always be complicit in the murder and genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.”
On April 21, 2023, people in Mumbai commemorated Yaum Al Quds, which is held annually on the last Friday of the Holy month of Ramadhan. The event is an opportunity to speak out against oppression around the world, particularly the occupation of Palestine… Ehsan Haider Raza, a participant from Mira Road, expressed concern about the ongoing genocide of Palestinians and called on governments around the world to take notice and take action against it. “The ongoing genocide of Palestinians is a cause of concern for the global community. Governments from around the world needs to sit up, take notice of the daily killings taking place in occupied-Palestine.”
USyd NTEU Branch President Nick Riemer spoke on the need to rally against the Israeli apartheid state and highlighted the extreme violence Palestinians were met with during the raid despite the deeply calm and personal nature of worship at Al Aqsa. “These attacks that were seen are part of Israel’s rolling, ongoing genocidal Nakba against Palestinian lives. And as these attacks are made more deadly and vicious, we need to intensify our solidarity with Palestinians.” .. Jasmine Al Rawi, USyd SRC Global Solidarity Officer and Student of Palestine member criticised how despite ongoing genocide and apartheid, where homes are demolished and lives are cut short by bans on medical supplies, Israel’s impunity remains the same.
