Due to the ongoing illegal closure imposed by Israel, some of the required medical supplies and devices cannot enter the Gaza Strip, causing additional suffering to patients throughout their recovery process.
The shocking reality is that many of the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip are a few miles away from the land of their ethnically cleansed former villages, across the border fence in southern Israel. Like so much else with Palestine, you can’t understand Gaza if you don’t understand the Nakba.
Is the true voice of Hamas discernable at this point? There seems to be a sharp contrast between the sweeping language of Meshaal’s words spoken at the anniversary demonstration in Gaza and his far calmer, focused, and accommodating tone in interviews and other statements during the last several years.
In confiscating fishing boats, Israel denies Gaza fishermen the right to livelihood by removing their means to make a living. The right to not to be arbitrarily deprived of property is protected under Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Richard Falk, arose an urgent need to investigate Israel’s seemingly deliberate attacks against seemingly civilian targets during recent hostilities. It is clear that some attacks killed and harmed civilians in a grossly disproportionate manner and thus clearly appear to violate international law.
Israel has already violated the ceasefire – at any time the missiles and rockets could start raining down once more. Year round, that is what it means to live in Gaza. I decided not to bring up the Santa Claus question.
Leading footballers across the world condemn the Israeli assault on Gaza, express solidarity with the people of Gaza and condemn plans to hold U21 European championship in Israel.
In bombing Gaza, then, Israel was not striking the territory of another state. It was bombing people for whose welfare it is legally accountable as the only sovereign power that exercises control over their lives – including everything from determining how their names appear on identity cards and in the official population registry, to how much electricity they receive and how much food they are allowed to eat.
We should not fool ourselves by believing that the conditions of the latest ceasefire between Hamas and the IDF are being honoured by the IDF (excuse the word ‘honoured’ here).
Al-Bahtetee family is now clearing out the debris and trying desperately to find the money they need to repair their home and workshop. Fourth Geneva Convention says that such extensive destruction of property protected by the convention which cannot be justified by military necessity is a grave breach of International Humanitarian Law.
Wherever the Israelis and their Zionist cohorts are leading us, it is not into the light, it is to someplace very very dark. Israel is the last surviving heirs to the dreadful racist heritage.
Gaza boils daily. Life reflects brutalizing occupation harshness. Isolation is suffocating. West Bank Palestinians understand. No one’s safe anywhere in Palestine. State terror makes everyone vulnerable. No one knows from one day to the next who’ll live, die, be arrested, beaten, tortured, or dehumanized for not being Jewish.
Hamas should be accepted as a key player in the diplomatic process from now on. Israel comes out of Gaza war smelling even worse than before and is now universally despised.
The consequences of the recent assault on Gaza will only be visible when the dust has settled. But it will surely not depart from the aim expressed by former Israeli official Dov Weisglass in 2006: “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.”
American media does not only disregard atrocity of Israel bombardment of Gaza, but also promote the theory that identifies “being Muslim” as becoming a terrorist.
America, superpower, groveling at Netanyahu’s feet. When Netanyahu decided to again murder the Palestinian women and children of Gaza, the US Senate, the US House of Representatives, the White House, and the US media all promptly declared their support for Netanyahu’s crime
Israel plans for death, and, terror, terror, terror, terror, terror; so what you choose to do is what you choose to be. Israel must be judged on this basis.
Under the US-Israeli occupation the future holds nothing for them. The Araboushim must be taught not to raise their heads. But it is within our power to bring the suffering of Gaza to an end.
Netanyahu finally decided that it would be too costly for Israel in diplomatic and political terms to say “No” to Obama and many other leaders who insisted that Israel had to agree to a ceasefire.
Let it, finally, be said: In praise of the ever-martyred but ever-heroic and ever-renascent people of Gaza. May they live to see the full brightness of dawn
And after the ceasefire, oppression will resume, the land-grab will continue, more rewards for Israel will flow. And it will be business as usual for Western leaders and their Zionist friends.
Israeli leadership knew exactly what it was doing. Israel’s policies seemed almost calculated to increase future ‘insecurity’ for its people and the region. Will they ever learn?
Shifa Hospital in Gaza call on all people of conscience to bring pressure to bear on their governments to take concrete and decisive steps without delay, to end this slaughter and to introduce stringent mechanisms to ensure it can never again be repeated.
What if Israel won’t comply? No problem: suspend all trade and technical cooperation. The international community must finally confront the problem it has created.
The Israelis are still bombing Gaza. America and Britain snigger and carry on handing out rewards to the psychopaths in Israel. Death is everywhere in Gaza.
Richard Falk calls on the international community to help defend the people of Gaza from the ongoing U.S.-backed Israeli assault. “It’s time, it seems to me, for the international community to take some responsibility for protecting the people of Gaza,” Falk says.
Clarity of justifications fails into obscurity when the question is raised, “What is it Israel is defending itself from or what is it being defended?” Political alphabet of the Protocols thereby being, immaculately executed through the ruse, “Israeli Rights to Defend Themselves Argument.”
Palestinian Arabs will not give up their right to the land or to full equality; they are not simply going to go away. But they are wrong to believe that this challenge can be solved by force.
So there’ll be no lasting peace. History will just keep repeating itself and the torment for blameless citizens will continue on both sides of the Gaza border.
In Gaza and other blighted parts of the globe we see this new configuration of power. What is happening in Gaza, like what is happening to people of color in marginal communities in the United States, is the model. The techniques of control, whether carried out by the Israelis or militarized police units in our inner-city drug wars, whether employed by military special forces or mercenaries in Pakistan, Afghanistan or Iraq, are tested first and perfected on the weak and the powerless. Our callous indifference to the plight of the Palestinians, and the hundreds of millions of poor packed into urban slums in Asia or Africa, as well as our own underclass, means that the injustices visited on them will be visited on us. In failing them we fail ourselves.
Al-Dalou family were praying to God that they would survive deadly Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip. But all of a sudden, a missile struck their three-storey building in central Gaza, burying the whole family under rubble.
Live update: List of Palestinians victims identified killed in the Israeli offensive on Gaza. Graph also shows the number of children and women killed in these assaults.
Gaza: The twins Mohammad Hijazi and Suhaib Hijazi were playing their last game when they were butchered. They were found sitting on the bicycles when the rescuers found them dead under the rubble of their house.
By supporting Israel’s offensive on Gaza, Western leaders have given the Israelis carte blanche to do what they’re best at: Wallow in their sense of victimhood and ignore Palestinian suffering.
