… UN and other global human-rights organizations that are letting the Israeli politicians, whether Lapid, Netanyahu or their predecessors, kill innocent Palestinian civilians on a whim, merely to gratify their domestic political interests. Courtesy of the Abraham Accords and continued patronizing by the Western capitals, the arrogance and haughtiness in Israel’s behavior has reached the point where Israel considers itself above any accountability for what many believe to be a planned genocide of the Palestinians…

Following Israel’s latest massacre in Gaza: It’s high time for the UN to act to dismantle apartheid by the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)

It is crucial to remember that Israel’s latest massacre took place in the context of the criminal siege of Gaza. Already in its 15th year, the siege is older than most of the children murdered in Israel’s repeated massacres there since 2008. The siege deprives over two million Palestinians, the majority of them children, of basic necessities, including clean water, jobs, reliable electric power, as well as adequate housing, healthcare, and education. As a result, morbidity, mortality (especially infant mortality), stunted growth, and poverty rates have risen sharply, reducing the lives of people there to hell. Israel’s siege of Gaza is condemned by human rights experts as a crime against humanity, while activists and some historians have termed it, “incremental genocide”… The utter failure of the International Criminal Court and the United Nations, including the General Assembly, to hold Israel accountable for its prolonged and continued crimes against humanity makes them also key culprits in Israel’s recent massacre in Gaza.

Israel’s Incremental Genocide by Prof. Raouf J. Halaby

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.

And you, Mr. Klikauer, you’ve authored over 750 articles, most of which deal/dealt with Nazi Germany, its virulent hatred, its systemic genocidal practices, its ideology of racial superiority, its dastardly evil, and its disregard for human life, an ideology that led to the horrific crematoriums. Do you not see many of these parallels spawning and festering in Israeli society as it conducts its incremental genocide?

Nakba74: The ‘voice of Palestine’ will be ignored no longer by Omar Zahzah

A blue, bullet proof PRESS vest and a sniper-shot to the head, just below the helmet line: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

A funeral for a nationally beloved journalist murdered by a colonial regime that is overrun by Zionist occupation forces who beat pallbearers and nearly overturn the coffin completely: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

International inaction at a fascist colonial ethno-state that slaughters Indigenous people at will, at random, and for nothing more or less than the “crime” of existing: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

Contrasting the vivacity of those taking to the streets with the dead-end of capitalist social media, Samidoun and Nai’s songs were censored by Youtube. But despite everything, a century of cultural genocide had failed to erase and silence the people.

“Just showing the symbolism- the physical infrastructure of occupation- also does not make a political film. There are many I can think of, that I find still very superficial even though they do directly deal with the occupation. There’s a danger of making films that are extremely individual, and they present the occupation as an individual obstacle, rather than a product of colonialism, a product of occupation, a product of genocide.” (min. 44:25)

Indeed, whatever the sins of the Ukrainian political elites may have committed in the past, the sympathy for the common people of Ukraine should not waver and neither should the Western forces be spared of their hypocrisy and double standards when dealing with genocidal Israel and hegemonic US.

If Even Emma Watson Says Free Palestine, We’re Winning by Rivkah Brown

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.

Wheeler notes that the invisible cordon between Israeli apartheid and other political causes is wearing thin, a trend he attributes in part to social media. “As […] previous editorial controls have been lifted,” he says, “celebrities have become more confident that they can engage in the Israel–Palestine dispute.” Wheeler wrote this in 2014, shortly after the last but one Israeli war on Gaza. It was a period when many celebrities stood with Palestine – including, importantly, a coalition of the world’s sexiest Spaniards. Yet this outpouring of solidarity was followed by an equal deluge of apologies, as Israel’s supporters successfully framed the celebrities’ use of the term “genocide” as antisemitic (rather than, as scholars of international human rights law have frequently argued, accurate). These celebrities learned the hard way why their peers had been silent.

Why Palestinian activists believe Jordanian film Amira fabricated the reality of prison ‘sperm smuggling’ by Maryam Elsaieh

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.

Abo Fahmi says that the whole process of freeing the sperm from prison is “reviving the soul of resistance for the prisoner and his family”. He says that “ending the bloodline does not just apply to the prisoner – it affects all Palestinians, and infringes their human rights. It is genocide.”
