Let’s Talk About Genocide: The Case of Palestine by Tali Shapiro

“Intent to destroy” a group is a basic qualifier for the crime of genocide. Intent is probably the element of a crime that is most difficult to prove, however the zionist movement and its subsequent colony in Palestine in its 67 years of colonialism, has never really hid its intent, the “enemy” being identified alternately as “Arabs”, “Muslims”, or “Palestinians”.

South American Women’s Solidarity and Struggle with the Palestinian People!

The group of women CLOC-Via Campesina South America consists of delegates from organizations in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, gathered from 12 to 16 July in the city of Quito, denouncing the Israeli state and its US ally, who in recent weeks have heightened militarism and expansionism in its imperial attempt to extinguish the liberation of Palestine, which is nothing but a genocide against a people.

Rural women demand respect for the principle of sovereignty and the right of farmers and Palestinian farmers, live, produce and stay on their land and territory. In that sense, echoing the international community express our solidarity against the genocidal invasion and colonial practices exercised by the Zionist state of Israel, which has proven to be a systematic violator of human rights and the resolutions of Nations United regarding Palestine.

Palestine is now a symbol of courage, wisdom and strength in their struggle for land, so we call to mobilize in embassies and lobbying with States to speak out for Palestine, for the life of men, mainly women and children who are being killed daily by Zionism.

To live in a world with less desilgualdad and peace, it is necessary to denounce the abuses suffered by the people of the world and even more so, genocide which is subjected to the Palestinian people. The, popular world social movements have to raise their voice of protest against the slaughter perpetrated in Palestine, seeing that Western governments are mostly silent accomplices in this action.

Sky News: Israel Minister Accuses Hamas Of ‘Self-Genocide’

The Israeli economic minister said: “The only difference between us and Hamas in Gaza is that they are deliberately sending their women and children to stand next to missile launchers in order for them to get killed, and then they cry to the world that they are being killed. This is cynical and cowardly. Israel has all the right to defend itself… They started this, they are continuing this, this can all go away the moment they disarm themselves and stop shooting us. Hamas is placing missiles in homes, in living rooms, in schools, in children’s rooms, this is their modus operandi… If Hamas was shooting missiles at your home, from within a school, what would you do? Would you just wait for those missiles to kill you? We fight back. Sometimes yes in wars there is collateral damage, but I’m not going to ask forgiveness for defending my four children that had rockets shot at home this very morning. What Hamas is doing is effectively self-genocide.”

No More Genocide! New Haven marches for Palestine

People expressed their disgust with the state-sponsored terrorism of Israel, the unanimous support of the genocide by US politicians and the billions of dollars of annual aid to Israel. Norman Clement, an ANSWER organizer, spoke about the link between the genocide in Palestine and the extermination of Native populations in the US. “It’s the same thing; the same push for colonization, to steal land and wipe out the people on that land.”

Boycott from Within Letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide

20 July, 2014

Dear Madame/Sir,

We are citizens of Israel who oppose our government’s policies of colonialism, occupation and apartheid against the Palestinian people and its actions which may amount to genocide. We write to you following thirteen days of an ongoing massacre, which is being perpetrated by Israel in the besieged Gaza Strip. As the death toll is rising, it now stands at 400 casualties and 3100 injured. The UN has declared, via UNICEF, that over a third of the victims are children. As you well know, this massacre was preceded by a month of massive Israeli violence and political persecution in the occupied West Bank, including the arrest of hundreds of so-called “Hamas-affiliated” men and boys. Meanwhile, Israeli mobs run wild in the streets of our cities, shouting the chilling “Death to the Arabs” chants (as well as “Death to the Leftists”).

You cannot ignore the fact, especially during this UN-declared “year of solidarity with the Palestinian people”, that two similar massacres have already been perpetrated by Israel in the short span of six years; that Gaza suffocates under Israel’s hermetic siege; that Israel has been perpetrating an ongoing ethnic cleansing against the indigenous people of Palestine since 1948 and up to this day; and that Israel believes it may exterminate hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza every two years and do so with full impunity.

The UN states that “Where genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity do occur, the International Criminal Court, which is separate and independent from the UN, is empowered to investigate and prosecute those most responsible if a state is unwilling or unable to exercise jurisdiction over alleged perpetrators.” Israel is well beyond the point of prevention and we, its privileged citizens, are hereby charging it with genocide.

We demand that your office will do everything in its power to halt Israeli genocide as it is taking place. We demand that you take immediate action to prevent Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people. We will be following your conduct on this matter.

Sincerely,
BOYCOTT! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call from Within

NO. Israel has NO Right of Self-Defense against Palestine by Occupied Palestine

Palestine does not need to defend itself against allegations of terrorism for resisting.
Every people under occupation have the inalienable right of self-defense against an oppressor, especially when this one commits a genocide. There is not a single law Israel can use which would precede this right of Palestine. Throughout history every nation which resisted war or genocide was and is: proud of it’s resistance. And so is Palestine.

George Galloway – London Protest Against Israel’s Genocide

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh08VUf4PcA

“There are demonstrations all over Europe and north America and the far east. The one place there are no demonstrations is the Arab world, which is silent while this genocide is going on. And the reason for that is that the corrupt kings and the puppet presidents of the Arab world would shoot their people down if they came out to demonstrate. And there will be no freedom for Palestine until these rotten dictatorships are swept away by their people and may god bless those who are planning to do so.”

The Brussels Tribunal also Calls: Write to UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide

Not to be mistaken with the Russell Tribunal, The Brussels Tribunal wrote the following letter to the  UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide:

20 July, 2014

To UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide

Gaza – 16 July death on the beach – funeral procession. 17 July, 2014 - The 4 boys slaughtered on the Gaza beach whilst playing football
Gaza – 16 July death on the beach – funeral procession. 17 July, 2014 – The 4 boys slaughtered on the Gaza beach whilst playing football

We are witnessing genocide in Gaza, Iraq, Syria, we are witnessing the use of illegal weapons, the bombings of hospitals, schools, a home for the disabled, the trauma of children, ethnic cleansing on a massive scale. We have heard the statements re Gaza of a desire that mothers are killed so no more children will be born. WHY are you silent? The UN has lost all credibility. Ban’s “concern” and “regret” are weasel words, pathetic – but you, “Office of the Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide” leave one speechless at your silence. Shame on you.
