According to Mona Al-Farra, speaking from the besieged Gaza Strip:
What [the Israelis] are trying to do in Gaza is a new kind of genocide. Part of that genocide is that they want to destroy our culture, our heritage. Me and my comrades, we want to keep the Palestinian identity alive, and not to allow them to crush us with their boots.

Even though the injustices occurring against the Palestinians are alarming, no government is assisting the victims. The gavel of lady justice has been stolen by the permanent members of the Security Council, and thus, no state has spoken out against the injustices. The judges and prosecutors of the international courts are threatened by the dialogues of the powerful authorities, and they even celebrate the mourning of the broken dreams of the innocent children. The Palestinian population has been subjected to genocide, annihilation, banishment, and terror at the hands of the grandchildren of those who themselves greatly suffered from the genocide in Europe

There are quotations enough here that show Israeli extremists who want death for them all — genocide.
What emerges is the hypocrisy of the Western narrative: the failure to recognise the lack of proportionality in Israel’s violence towards a people it has imprisoned, and often driven to insanity by the power of its weapons.

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).

PAPPE PROVIDES a clear historical overview of the 1948 and 1967 Israeli wars, describing the expulsion and genocide these campaigns were integral to.
Even before 1948, the Zionists aimed “to take over as much of Palestine as possible with as few Palestinians as possible,” Pappe writes… He describes the military regime that controlled the lives of Palestinians in Israel before 1967 and the one that still dominates in the occupied territories today. And within Israel proper, he documents the denial of land and building permits to Palestinians, as well as the discriminatory division of social benefits and employment. When he’s finished, there’s no way anyone could describe Israel as a land offering full civil rights to all its inhabitants. The denial of equal citizenship, says Pappe, is part of the ultimate goal of Zionists to maintain a Jewish state in Palestine, which in a country with so many Palestinians requires “non-democratic means.

… the concept of genocide is clearly relevant to how we should understand the Israeli/ Palesttinian situation. In terms of physicaal destruction, thousands more Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the Nakba…

The occupation of Palestine is the biggest moral scandal of our times, one of the most dehumanizing ordeals of the century we have just entered, and the biggest act of cowardice of the last half-century.
And since all they [Israel] are willing to offer is a fight to the finish, since what they are willing to do is to go all the way – carnage, destruction, incremental extermination – the time has come for global isolation.

Diana Lodge read history at St Hugh’s College Oxford and spent most of her working life as a non-fiction book editor. She is also a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. An NLP proposition that particularly appeals to her is: ‘If what you are doing isn’t working, try something else.’ Having had a lifelong interest in and connection with Palestine, it is by now crystal clear to her that appeasement, favourable trade agreements and friendly diplomatic relations with Israel are enabling, not preventing, the Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people. She hopes that the stark facts outlined in this book will encourage decent people, whether Jewish or gentile, to peaceably but firmly boycott Israel. It is beyond high time that the multi-generational trauma that is being inflicted on ordinary people, and especially children, is stopped. Palestinian gas, oil and water reserves, lands and ancient olive trees can then be used to heal, to restore lost hopes and dreams, and create a peace-filled future for all the inhabitants of a deeply-troubled region.

These discourses of cultural cleansing and cultural genocide suffer from their focus upon the symbolic cultural heritage, which solely refers to one layer of urban destruction, the deliberate destruction of cultural artefacts. In other words, it focuses only upon the buildings whose loss is judged to be a cultural loss. However, the urban environment normally experiences more widespread destruction than these symbolic buildings. From the Bosnian history of cultural destruction it is evident that hundreds of other types of buildings were subject to destruction–for example, houses in Mostar Old Town and in many of the villages in Bosnia. The same can be noted in the Palestinian history of urban destruction–for example, Nablus old town (more details on Nablus are analyzed in Chapter 6). Indeed, urban destruction encompasses buildings that have no distinctive cultural value, or are of distinct cultural provenance. Thus the interpretation of urban destruction as an attack o cultural heritage provides only a partial (though striking) account of the destruction of the urban environment in Bosnia among other cases; it does not account for the scare of destruction or targeting of buildings that are not recognizable as such symbols of culture. Thus, cultural cleansing and cultural genocide are only partially reflecting the process of urban destruction; they reflect the destruction of cultural artefacts, but this destruction does not take place in a pure form or apart from the destruction of other types of urban environment.
