Former Top UN Official Craig Mokhiber on Israel’s Genocide on This Is Palestine

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.

Craig Mokhiber: This is very much a world in which the West is complicit in genocide in the 21st century.

Diana Buttu: I was gonna ask you- this is probably the last question I have, which is- fast forward let’s say 10-20 years, how do you think the world is going to look back on this?

CM: I mean I think that there’s no doubt that retrospectively there’ll be a lot of shame. For- not just the failure of many to respond to a genocide unfolding before their eyes, but- the complicity of many. Not just governments, but- as I say- people in the media, people in everyday life. But that’s not going to bring justice to the Palestinian people for what has been perpetrated on them. And that’s why I think beyond shame there has to be actual individual criminal accountability for perpetrators. There has to be a reckoning when it comes to the media, so that there’s some level of accountability there.

“In this moment Israel has targeted 29 UNRWA schools, eight of which were providing shelter at the time. Has targeted 12 out of 35 hospitals that are critical to ensure life. Has cut off water, has cut off electricity, has bombed humanitarian convoys, has prevented the creation of any humanitarian corridors. We must understand this as a genocidal campaign. And if we understand it as such, as defined by the 1948 Genocide Convention, which has two critical elements; both genocidal intent, as well as specific underlying acts- which have been demonstrated exhaustively by legal scholars, genocide scholars, legal institutions- then we must also agree that there is no condition on how we apply ceasefire now. There is no legal or moral code that justifies genocide. Not in the name of self-defense, not in the name of National Security, not in the name of achieving any kind of resolution. There should be no equivocation on demanding an unequivocal ceasefire now. Not just to cease the hostilities but literally in order to stem a genocide.”

Hamas w/ Tareq Baconi on The Dig

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.

Daniel Denvir : Any attempt at understanding Hamas has been stigmatized as supporting Hamas. To provide context is to effectively condone the massacres of Israeli civilians on October 7th. Condemning Hamas must be the very first sentence out of your mouth before saying anything else about what’s happening. And even that is not good enough. But understanding Hamas is precisely what must happen if we are to end injustice and create peace. Because the monsterification of Hamas, above all else, serves the purpose of mystifying what causes violence and what will end it. It obscures the political roots of the violence and thus also the political solutions that would end it. The opponents of peace accomplish this by fetishizing Hamas’ violence so as to mistify the fundamental violence that is the Israeli occupation, the apartheid state, and ongoing genocide.

Israeli Historian Ilan Pappe, the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, the Truth about the Apartheid State of Israel and its Incremental Genocide of the Palestinian People on The Michael Slate Show

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.

[I]n 2014, Michael Slate interviewed Ilan Pappe, Israeli historian, and author of many works, including The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. This has renewed relevance today, in the context of the powerful film “Fahra,” now streaming on Netflix, and the frenzied attacks on it by the Israeli government and the usual band of US Zionists. The interview was conducted during a genocidal Israeli assault on the outdoor prison called Gaza. The horrors then inflicted on Palestinians are echoed in almost daily videos on social media of the cold-blooded murder of unarmed Palestinians carried out by the Israeli army and rabid gangs of fascist so-called settlers. This is a powerful truth that some try hard to cover up, but many more are simply ignoring.

The PLO historically, according to Paul Chamberlain, did much of what the Vietnamese did, which was fight while talking. They should be fighting and talking at the same time. Instead we’ve been so committed- the leadership, not us, but the official leadership- has been so committed to just talking and proving politeness, that were now in a place where Israelis can all out say- deny the Nakba…
– Or say they’ll bring a second one.
They’re fine with that. They can use the language of genocide and are not held to account.

Free Palestine: An Interview with Akram Salhab on Tribune

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.

There’s this extreme, violent’ and urgent situation that Israel is undertaking. A renewed massacre in Gaza, and god knows what inside 48 and Jerusalem. The other day we saw 2-300 settlers march into Sheikh Jarrah, smashing up houses, smashing up shops, smashing up cars. Just going on an absolute rampage. This has been happening everywhere. It’s not an exaggeration to say that there’s definitely a potentially genocidal situation on our hands.

Deconstructed Podcast: Israeli Activists Speak Out Against The Occupation Of Gaza hosted by Mehdi Hasan

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’s easy to kill unarmed protesters If you demonize them first. Right? If they’re all terrorists. If they’re all Hamas. Take, for example, the claim from Eli Hazan, foreign affairs spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party, who said, and I quote, “all 30,000″ — all 30,000 Gaza protestors — “all 30,000 are legitimate targets.” Or Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s claim that, “There are no innocent people in Gaza” — 1.9 million people live in Gaza, but according to the defense minister of Israel, none of them are innocent, apparently. That is the language of genocide.
