Israel’s Decimation of Gaza by Norman Pollack

What we see is a miniaturized genocide—nothing less, followed by a dozen years of fruitless litigation and recourse to justice. That by itself reveals the moral emptiness of present-day Israel and, of course, its American-backer… Here is the rather sober comment of a well-known Gazan economist, Omar Shaban, to whom I shall give the final word: “After every war, we say it can’t get worse, but I will say this time is the worst ever.

Assault on Gaza—Rafah, a Case Study: Israeli’s Adeptness at Genocide by Norman Pollack

Children bloodied, on gurneys in hallways, parents moaning, holding a dead child—if one applied a moral calculus, what is worse, the infliction of the death and pain, or insensitivity to the commission of the act, whether done by oneself or by others in one’s name? To call itself The Jewish State, Israel legitimates genocide in the name of G-d.
