US took part in raid that murdered 210+ Palestinians in Nuseirat, used ‘aid’ jetty

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 09/06/2024 - 4:31am in

Israelis disguised trucks as aid delivery vehicles before killing hundreds of Palestinians and several Israeli captives, to free just four. Biden silent on Palestinian victims as he praises Israel, but Israeli families slam Netanyahu

Israeli occupation troops were directly aided and abetted by US forces as they hid inside a fake ‘aid truck’ to launch the raid on Nuseirat refugee camp that killed hundreds of Palestinians. US troops used the US-built supposed ‘aid’ jetty to provide support for the raid.

The Israelis also killed several of their own citizens in the assault and managed to free only four – who would certainly have been killed before they were ‘rescued’ if the Palestinians were interested in killing them. The Israelis paraded in front of the cameras appeared well fed and cared-for, in a territory where two million people are in famine.

Al Jazeera reporter Anas Al-Sharif posted video of an aid truck used by Israeli forces in the assault, which killed well over two hundred Palestinians and wounded more than four hundred. Al-Sharif said:

Israeli occupation forces infiltrated the Nuseirat refugee camp today in trucks disguised as humanitarian aid.

All the captives, including those killed by their own side during the ‘rescue’ – adding to the ‘immense’ number already admitted by the Israeli military (but ignored by the UK media) – could have been free in days if Israel agreed a proper ceasefire and prisoner swap. Thousands of Palestinian civilians remain in brutal captivity and at least 45,000 civilians – and as many as 100,000 according to some sources – have been slaughtered during Israel’s genocide, with twice as many maimed, mostly women and children.

US president Joe Biden congratulated Israel on the four freed. His speech did not mention the murdered Palestinians. Israeli families of captives, however, slammed Benjamin Netanyahu for ignoring them but rushing for a photo opportunity with the handful freed.

Exclusive: Israel lobby, Murdoch press hunting Greens after party gives ground to pressure

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 11/05/2024 - 8:15am in

Times shaping up for Corbyn-reminiscent witch-hunt of elected Greens who have stood up for Palestinians against Israeli genocide

The UK pro-Israel lobby is again pursuing those who speak out against Israel’s mass murder in Gaza

The Murdoch press is pursuing elected representatives of the Greens who speak up against Israel’s genocide in Gaza, citing the supposed concerns of UK pro-Israel groups offended by criticisms of Israel and of Israeli influence in UK politics.

In an echo of the witch-hunt of Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters during and after Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour party, Skwawkbox understands that the Times is planning an attack tomorrow on left-wingers now in the Greens who have attacked Israel’s genocide, apartheid and contempt for international law and humanitarian obligations.

An Israeli media article noting that the Israeli military conceded it had killed an ‘immense and complex quantity’ of its own citizens on the day of the Hamas raid

‘Offences’ as specious as highlighting Israel’s ‘immense’ slaughter of its own people on 7 October – an established fact long ago admitted by the IDF and by Israeli police and freely discussed in the Israeli press, but covered up by the UK’s political-media Establishment – are being targeted as supposed cause for investigation, suspension and condemnation. Even describing the anti-Left witch-hunt as the scam it has long been exposed as is supposedly grounds for condemnation.

The move seems to have been triggered by a show of weakness by the Greens’ leadership, who reacted to the mobbing of Green councillor Mothin Ali for his support of Palestinians by launching an investigation. The Greens, to their credit, have not suspended Ali, but the fact that any concession to the the pro-Israel lobby only encourages more attacks is one of the clearest lessons of the Corbyn era and it seems Israel’s supporters see an opportunity to cow the Greens as a potential source of dissent and resistance to the UK political establishment’s determination to ignore Israel’s war crimes and even assist in them.

Kibbutz survivors and even IDF soldiers have talked openly about the killing of Israeli families by Israeli tanks and troops

It is now up to the Greens to treat this mobbing with the contempt it deserves – to remember that Jewish people play a prominent role in pro-Gaza protests in the UK and around the world, and are not the pro-Israel monolith that they are portrayed as by the UK media, politicians and pro-Israel lobby groups, and to make sure that the urgency of ending the slaughter of Palestinian civilians, mostly women and children, far outweighs the sense of offence claimed by those who support Israel’s ‘right’ to commit genocide.

Israeli captive in Gaza says IDF has killed 70 captives and shames Netanyahu

Hersh Goldberg-Polin, a US-born Israeli, wishes his parents a good Passover – and says Netanyahu and his far-right government should be ‘ashamed’

A US-born Israeli held captive in Gaza has said on video that Israel’s military has killed seventy of his fellow captives and that Israeli PM Netanyahu and his far-right government ‘should be ashamed of yourselves’.

Hersh Goldberg-Polin, a 24-year-old Californian-born Israeli taken captive on 7 October, went on to tell his parents that he loves them and hopes they somehow manage to have a happy Passover:

Goldberg-Polin, who at 24 years old will have served in the Israeli military, has lost part of his left arm, presumably under fire on 7 October last year, although it is unclear from what he says whether he was wounded by Palestinian fighters or by Israeli forces. It is now well known – admitted by the IDF and freely discussed by Israeli newspapers, though still ignored by UK media and politicians – that Israeli helicopters and tanks killed ‘immense’ numbers of Israeli citizens under the IDF’s ‘Hannibal doctrine’ of killing potential hostages. His performance is passionate, but it is, of course, unknown whether he was speaking under duress.

Relatives of Israeli captives killed in Gaza have also accused the Israeli military of killing them; the IDF is known for sure to have killed three hostages who had escaped, stripped to show they were no threat, and were calling out in Hebrew, while waving a white flag, for soldiers not to shoot. Israel is holding around nine thousand Palestinian hostages, who have been arbitrarily detained and imprisoned without trial. The EU is calling for an independent investigation of the hundreds of executed Palestinian captives currently being unearthed behind Al Shifa hospital after Israel’s raid there. Israel has murdered more than 40,000 civilians, mostly women and children.

Video: Israeli Knesset member mocked and called liar by UN-linked parliament gathering

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 26/03/2024 - 1:07am in

Hard right advocate of ‘levelling’ Gaza derided for repeating debunked atrocity propaganda to 148th Assembly of Inter-Parliamentary Union

Danny Danon, a hard-right Likud member of Israel’s Knesset, has been derided as a liar and jeered by attendees at the 148th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), a UN-linked gathering of the world’s parliaments, which is taking place in Geneva.

Danon, who advocated for the ‘levelling’ of Gaza almost ten years before the Hamas raid on 7 October last year, blamed Hamas for Israel’s actions in Gaza, ignored the seventy-five years of illegal occupation and slaughter by Israel and regurgitated atrocity propaganda about child rapes and murders, which has been discredited for months – and was booed by delegates and angrily confronted by the Palestinian delegate, before being carpeted by Ireland’s representative for his ‘lots of lies’ on behalf of a ‘failed’ regime:

In 2013, Danon, an opponent of immigration from Africa to Israel – where discrimination against Black Jews is rife – advocated for punishment attacks against Palestinian civilians and infrastructure, including a suggestion that Israel “delete” one whole neighbourhood in Gaza in response for every rocket launched by the Palestinian resistance, an act of collective punishment that is a clear war crime under international law.

A year later, Danon advocated cutting off all electricity and fuel supplies to Gaza, prefiguring the blockade by Israel that has pushed hundreds of thousands of Palestinians into famine. A month later, Danon said that Israel should respond to the kidnapping of an IDF soldier by “levelling Gaza”. Since the resistance raid, he has been a prominent advocate for the ‘voluntary’ removal of all Palestinians from Gaza to other countries, yet he clearly thinks he has the right to demand obedience and belief from the global community.

The IDF has admitted that the number of its own people that it killed during the Hamas raid was ‘immense’ – an admission ignored entirely by the UK media. Israel has murdered over 40,000 Palestinians since 7 October and wounded double that amount in its levelling of Gaza, mostly women and children. It is using starvation as a weapon of war and has killed dozens of Israeli hostages while taking thousands of Palestinian hostages and, according to the UN, carrying out summary executions of civilians and raping and abusing Palestinian women and girls.
