Israel and the “G” Word: Gaza Genocide And Arab Fratricide by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Lets not mince words. Israelis are committing genocide in Gaza. But the United Nations is loath to use the “G” word and it us using the “C” (condemn) word instead. Why?  Money talks. The top financier of the United Nations is America with a whopping 22.00% in direct funds (followed by Japan 10.83%, Germany 7.14%, France 5.59%, and GB 5.18%),  if the United Nations called out the genocide in Gaza, its top financier would have to be punished for its complicity.

According to Article 3 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, persons committing genocide or complicity in genocide shall be punished “whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals.”  The United States not only supports and funds the ongoing genocide in Gaza, replenishes Israel with more funds and weaponry, but it also uses its political clout to enable Israel to continue its ruthless crimes against humanity…

The American government is not alone in its complicity in genocide or in its incitement.   Mainstream media networks and commentators who paint a picture of an Israel “self-defense” to give room to the continued genocide are complicit and must be punished.  But in the opinion of this writer, the vilest partners in this crime are the Egyptian and Saudi leaders committing fratricide.

Egypt’s military coup leader and the illegitimate president of Egypt, al-Sisi, whom the Israel ambassador called a ‘hero for all Jews’ , has trapped the Gazans so that Israel can eliminate them all. Genocide will prove to be lucrative business for the Egyptians…

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.”

UN’s Investigation of Israel Should Go Beyond War Crimes to Genocide by Michael Ratner

[youtube=http://youtu.be/dE_IIoIdZGA]

“Today I want to talk about Israel, but particularly its criminality. Its war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity, and apartheid. Of course it’s a criminality that could not be carried out by Israel without the weapons and support of the United States.”

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.”

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.

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.”

Advocating for Palestinian Rights in conformity with International Law: Guidelines An outcome document by Civic Coalition for Palestinian Rights in Jerusalem, Birzeit University Institute of Law

“Today, colonialism, including settler colonialism, is absolutely prohibited. Colonialism, however, was not expressly prohibited by international law at the time Israel was established. The normative shift began only in the 1950s as result of anti-colonial liberation movements, and colonialism became expressly prohibited in 1960, when the UN adopted the Declaration on Granting Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples. Since the prohibition does not apply retroactively, earlier colonial processes in which settler colonial societies had established themselves as nation-states were de facto immunized and normalized by UN-led ecolonization. As a result, the dominant legal opinion is that the legal framework of colonialism is not applicable within the borders of existing states, even where founded through aggression, colonization, ethnic cleansing or genocide, such as the United States, Australia and Israel.”
