Israel-Palestine responses by Carl Strock

In response to Gregg M. Mashberg’s letter, in which he contends ‘there is no Israeli ideology, policy or plan to persecute, expel or exterminate the Palestinian population,’ I submit there is indeed such an ideology. It’s called Zionism, the doctrine that Jews anywhere in the world have the right to occupy historic Palestine and establish there a Jewish-supremacist state at the expense of the local people, who, over the years they have indeed persecuted, expelled and on more than one occasion massacred, which is how Israel came into being. That the effort has not attained the horrific dimensions of the Nazi genocide of World War II does not mean that it’s essentially different.

Reverend right to speak out on treatment of Palestinians by George Konrad DeBlois

I am George deBlois. I am 14 years old, and even at this age I feel I must address a topic I found in The Gazette about a boycott of Israeli products as a protest to Israeli policies… We promised after the war never to forget the Holocaust, and pledged to never again allow the horror of genocide sweep the world. We swore to always remember, and to never, ever forget what humanity is capable of doing to one another, as shown in the terrible genocide in World War II. But we have forgotten…

Many people have refused to speak out against Israel’s barbarity, either by choice or out of fear. But when Reverend Alan D. Kinney of the United Methodist Church voiced his disdain for the Israeli genocide in Palestine and his intent to boycott Israeli products, there was a voice in our community trying to make a difference, trying to honor the memory of the Holocaust and millions of victims by ensuring that this genocide finally be addressed. I am proud of Rev. Kinney for voicing his opinion and taking action against Israel’s brutal slaughter of the Palestinians in Gaza.

“Open a criminal investigation against Israel for their war crimes and do not let the murder of over 2000 people go in vain, as well as the silent holocaust that Palestinians are facing since the illegal creation of Israel.”

2 December, 2014

Madame/Sir,

I am writing to you, very disturbed that the UN was created to govern nations of occupying other nations illegally. For 66 years, Israel has committed from single war crimes atrocities to massive massacres since it has been illegally created as a state.

From previous attacks on a civilian population of Palestinians, unarmed, and helpless, from Gaza To The Westbank, Israel has gotten away with acts of war crimes, most recent “Operation Protective Edge”…evidence has been proven the bombing campaign that Israel claimed it did to “defend itself” and destroy tunnels is absurd when UN officials, UNICEF employees and Amnesty have repeatedly told UN that Israel has attacked schools, shelters and hospitals, including arresting and detaining children under the age of 11, wrote reports of the torture and sexual assaults on these children held in Israel prison.

Why isn’t Israel held accountable for breaking these resolutions set forth? Thus far it has repeatedly broken 65 and have not faced repercussions or sancations. Yet any nation that has broken just ONE seems to be held accountable.

We demand an investigation, not only for Israel bombing of Gaza in 2014, but the attacks before. The illegal use of white sulfur on the population of Gaza that many people working with the UN have seen with their own eyes, seen snipers with their own eyes target Palestinians, seen the beating and torture of Palestinians, seen illegal settlers kidnap, beat, kill, run over Palestinians and yet we ask why Palestinians retaliate.

By UN Resolutions, we the Palestinians under illegal occupation have the RIGHT and LAW to resistance occupation.

Asking you again to open a criminal investigation against Israel for their war crimes and do not let the murder of over 2000 people in 2014 in 50 days murders go in vain, as well as the silent holocaust that Palestinians are facing since the illegal creation of Israel.

Thank you.

We call for an immediate end to the siege against and blockade of Gaza. We call for the full economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel. “Never again” must mean NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE!”

Of angels and the devil: How the West aid Israel commit genocide in Gaza by William Muchayi

Ironically, it’s the Israelis and not the Germans at the centre of the genocide against Palestinians with the blessings of the West. According to the Times of Israel, under certain circumstances, ‘genocide is permissible’ because it is directed against Palestinians who are ‘terrorists’ and should be ‘obliterated…’

It’s amazing to realise how mankind, in spite of his intellect, wisdom and advanced mental prowess has such short memory. For, how are these inflammatory sentiments, spiced with racist undertones that dehumanise Palestinians and condemn them to  sub-humans differ from Hitler’s notion of  plague carrying rats , a pretext he used  to exterminate Jews during the holocaust?

Given this deep rooted hatred and a complete disregard for human rights, is it surprising that almost 2000 Palestinians are massacred in cold blood in the Gaza Strip with the international community almost silent? Or, is it that the world is still gripped by the holocaust emotions to the extent of being blind to Israeli atrocities in the Gaza Strip?

Collapse of Industrial Civilization: A Slow and Systematic Genocide

Last month, Robert Fisk wrote that the current Israeli/Palestinian conflict is about land and Nafeez Ahmed wrote that it is about Gaza’s gas reserves. I say it’s about land and resources, but it’s also about war profiteers feeding the military industrial complex with endless conflict. From the gas chambers of the Holocaust to today’s slow and systematic genocide of the Palestinian people, it’s about man’s inhumanity to man and the vicious cycle of history repeating itself.

Gaza: Genocide Made in the USA and our responsibilities to defend (Sara Flounders at Workers World Party assembly)

“We don’t know how long this attack is going to go. How long it could possibly go. We know with pain the comparisons to the Warsaw ghetto. We know what the Nazis did to the Warsaw ghetto. And everyone here who has seen any of the videos of the attacks on schools, the attacks on a playground, kids on swings, 4 young boys playing soccer on a beach. These aren’t military targets. But maybe the worst target was the bombing of the power station. Gaza’s flat and sandy and when you knock out the power, then the ability of even pumping water for sanitation, for sewage. That is beyond criminal. That is genocide.”

Venezuela condemns Israeli ‘genocide’ and ‘extermination’

President Nicolas Maduro has maintained the foreign policy of his firebrand predecessor Hugo Chavez, who was popular in the Arab world and broke relations with Israel after accusing it of “holocaust” for its 2009 offensive in Gaza. Israel’s latest attacks have “initiated a higher phase of its policy of genocide and extermination with the ground invasion of Palestinian territory, killing innocent men, women, girls and boys,” a Venezuelan government statement said…

Venezuela called for the United Nations‘ human rights body to meet and condemn Israel. “Venezuela also rejects the cynical campaigns trying to condemn both parties equally, when it is clear you cannot morally compare occupied and massacred Palestine with the occupying state, Israel, which also possesses military superiority and acts on the margins of international law.”

“We hope to show Israel, and the world, the absurd reality of using the memory of one genocide to justify another.”

We, Jews Against Genocide, came to Yad Vashem, Israel’s memorial of the genocide committed against Jews, to honor the Palestinian children who are dying in a genocide committed by Jews.

We brought dolls to symbolise the children of Gaza, and tried to bring a glimpse of the horror that Gazan’s face, to Israel’s doorstep. We hope to show Israel, and the world, the absurd reality of using the memory of one genocide to justify another.
