In Palestine, R2P Isn’t Dead. It Could Never have Existed. by Michael Kearney

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.

To speak of R2P as applying to Palestinians at all, one must accept that there is a need to protect a vulnerable population against genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, or crimes against humanity. Many people and institutions, such as Canada, refuse to acknowledge that ethnic cleansing, apartheid, war crimes, or crimes against humanity are being, or could be, perpetrated by Israel.

De Blasio’s support for Israeli genocide and the limits of ‘progressivism’ by Ben Becker

“While tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets worldwide against the siege of Gaza, the Senate voted 100-0 to support it. That of course includes senators Elizabeth Warren, “the socialist” Bernie Sanders and Al Franken. Their liberal conscience was apparently unaffected by the images of murdered Palestinian children, whose deaths passed without mention in the Congressional resolution. A couple days earlier, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, the celebrity progressive of the moment, likewise maintained his steadfast public support for Israel and its “right to defend itself.”…De Blasio’s speech in front of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in January wasn’t just an endorsement of Israel. It was a pledge of servitude. He declared that defending Israel was “part of his job description” as mayor of New York — a statement that left many New Yorkers scratching their heads. He declared that City Hall “will always be open to AIPAC” and that,“When you need me to stand by you or Washington or elsewhere, I will answer the call, and I’ll answer it happily, ’cause that’s my job.”

“… the havoc, death and destruction  the Israeli army- and weapons of mass destruction- are pounding the Gaza strip with, for the last few days. This is not a war- This is genocide.”

The Missing Piece: A Feminist Perspective on Israeli Aggression by Simona Sharoni to Ms. Magazine

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.

Where is the feminist perspective on the genocide in Gaza? As a Jewish feminist, daughter of a Holocaust survivor, and someone who lived in Israel for 27 years, I find the silence of this page disturbing. I attach a short article I wrote two weeks ago, which I sent to the editor of this page in hope that it will be circulated. I haven’t heard back at all but it’s not about me. It’s about the need of feminists to take a stand on this horrific military assault.

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.”

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.”
