Kill and Kill and Kill

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/05/16/kill-and-kill-and-kill

"...The killing now taking place is, in other words, exactly, to the letter, the 'killing and killing and killing' he called for 14 years ago. Calmly, premeditated and intentionally designed by its architect, it is equally calmly and intentionally being carried out by Iraeli soldiers.

In response to the current killing and shooting a senior member of the Israeli parliament, Avi Dichter, reassured his audience on live television on Monday that they need not be unduly concerned. Their army, he told them, 'has enough bullets for everyone.' 

The people of Gaza are exterminable because they are not Jewish. That is what the situation amounts to, not according to critics of the siege of Gaza, but according to its architects, planners, enablers and supporters..."

Listen: 'Clearly Marked' Gaza Medics Shot By Israeli Snipers (podcast)

https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/nora-barrows-friedman/listen-clearl...

"We could see very quickly that the Israelis were going to shoot a lot of people, Tarek Loubani, a Palestinian Canadian emergency physician who treated patients in Gaza on 14 May, told the Electronic Intifada Podcast. 

According to Loubani, four members of his team, including himself and Abu Hassanein, were shot that day - mostly in the lower limbs. Activists criticized the Canadian government's diluted responses as well as the Israel lobby's defense of Israel's violence."

 

Killing For Security? Saeb Erekat, Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (and vid)

https://www.rt.com/shows/worlds-apart-oksana-boyko/426962-palestine-libe...

"...Our only option is to stay on our land. To be on our land. Today between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean, we are the majority - as Palestinian Arabs, Palestinian Christians and Muslims. We are 50.9%. Jews are 49.1%. What are they going to do with us?

We have recognised Israel's right to exist. We have accepted a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital. To live side by side in peace and security with the state of Israel. What does Israel do in return? More settlements, more dictations, more killing, more murders, more sieges, more closures, more collective punishments, more house demolitions.

All of these actions are being done in 2018 by a member of the UN. And they call it 'the only democracy in the ME. It's fascism! Never in the history of South Africa and the darkest hours of Apartheid were blacks prevented from using roads that whites were using. Today, in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are roads we cannot use as Palestinians. 

This must stop. We will stand up. We will not depart. This is our land. And we will defend ourselves..."

Wikipedia Editing Courses Launched by Zionist Groups

https://t.co/lwYpgjeagk

Pro-Israel groups have set up training courses for Wikipedia editors.

"Yesha Council, represents the Jewish settler movement, and the right wing (My Israel) movement, ran their first workshop this week in Jerusalem, teaching participants how to rewrite and revise some of the most hotly disputed pages of the online reference site.

'We don't want to change Wikipedia, or turn it into a propaganda arm,' says Naftali Bennett, director of the Yesha Council. 'We just want to show the other side. People think that Israelis are mean, evil people who only want to hurt Arabs all day."

500 Years of Nakbas

https://blackagendareport.com/500-years-nakbas

"...With the fall of white rule in South Africa in 1994, Israel is now the world's last apartheid state, a government based in ethnic and racial supremacy. Its very existence is an insult to humanity. Israel is the antithesis of civilization. It is, by nature, racist barbarism.

All the civilized peoples of the world are in solidarity with the Palestinians, who face the last bastion of legalized racial rule on the planet. Their catastrophe, their nakba, was among the last acts of a racist imperial order that must ultimately be swept away.

If not, then the final nakba is coming - for all of us."

Is the point that Canadians should stop caring about Palestine, because it's hypocritical not to let Israel finish the same genocide Canada already perpetrated? Is it that Canadians should feel superior, because Canada's already given its colonized population the right to move freely (1935) and vote (1960)? Or is it a message of reassurance to Israel that even if they grant Palestinians full citizenship on paper, it doesn't mean they have to stop being racist, stop shooting them at their pleasure, or let them have their land back? Please clarify.

That's what it sounds like. The tweet is the same sort of thing you used to hear from South African diplomats doing whataboutery tours of First Nations reserves in the 80s.

And the thing is, the tweet only really makes sense if there IS widespread anger among Canadians about Israeli aggression in Palestine(otherwise, the hypocrisy issue would be minimal). But that kind of contradicts the complaint by pro-Palestinian activists that their cause is shut out of mainstream discussion in Canada.

South America: Israel’s massacre in Gaza denounced, support for BDS grows

quote:

Solidarity has not been limited to governments and heads of state.

Protestors took to the streets of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile and Venezuela on May 15 in solidarity with the Palestinian people, while students occupied the main administration building at Chile’s largest public university, Universidad de Chile, that day.

Students from the Department of Philosophy and Humanities at Universidad de Chile had voted the previous day to endorse the BDS movement and to call on the university to sever ties with the University of Tel Aviv and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

BDS Chile notes that these two universities are built on former Palestinian land and are linked to the development of military technology that enables the systematic oppression of Palestinians and Israelis who oppose Israel’s military occupation, TeleSUR English reported on May 15.

Students from the departments of Medicine, Social Sciences and Law had previously voted in support of BDS and in favour of a university “free of Israeli apartheid.”

In April, more than 500 Latin American artists signed a statement publicly endorsing the Palestinian call for a cultural boycott of Israel in which they pledged to “reject any invitation to perform in Israel or at any event financed by this government that leads to the ‘normalisation’ of apartheid, that is, where the regime of segregation maintained by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people is not denounced.”

Among the signatories are poets, painters, rappers, theatre directors, filmmakers, actors, writers, and musicians from 17 Latin American countries.

Meanwhile the campaign to get the Argentine national football (soccer) team to withdraw from its June 9 pre-World Cup friendly match against Israel continues to grow, inside the country and internationally.

BDSMovement.net wrote on May 15: “The scheduled match will be part of Israel’s 70th anniversary ‘celebrations’ and is taking place while Israel implements a criminal shoot-to-kill-or-maim policy against peaceful Palestinian protesters in Gaza. This makes the ‘friendly’ a whitewash of Israel's crimes and therefore extremely unfriendly to human rights!...

“The Israeli government has agreed to pay three million dollars to host the match. This is part of its ‘sports-washing’ propaganda strategy, which exploits sporting events to hide its systemic human rights abuses against Palestinians.

Did he oppose the very same exact investigation he called for?

Or did he oppose a totally different investigation?

Rikardo

Could Gaza become an independent mini-state like Qatar, or be linked to Egypt ?  Hamas wanted all of Palestine as an Islamic state. The West Bank could be the State of Palestine, capital East Jerusalem with Jewish settlers as a minority with dual citizenship. Abbas clings to demands he knows Israel won't accept. 

No comparison to Canada.  Many Jewish Europeans wanted, after centuries of being an often persecuted minority in Christian Europe, a state (of their own), the only Jewish majority state anywhere

60 Dead in Gaza and the End of Israeli Conscience  -   by Gideon Levy

"...If 60 stray dogs were shot to death in one day by IDF soldiers, the whole country would raise an outcry. The dog slaughterers would be put on trial, the nation of Israel would have devoted prayers to the victims, a Yizkor service would be said for the dog slaughterers by Israel.

But on the night of the Palestinian slaughter, Zion rejoiced and was jubilant: We have an embassy and a Eurovision. It's difficult to think of a more atrocious moral eclipse..."

New Democratic Party MPs Should Withdraw From Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group

"Is it appropriate for NDP Members of Parliament to be working for 'greater friendship' with a country that is killing and maiming thousands of non-violent protesters?

Would it have been appropriate for any elected member of that party to be a 'friend' with South Africa's government during the apartheid era?

Israel's slaughter in Gaza should lead to an end of the NDP's anti-Palestinian past.

Israel's New Ideology of Genocide

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/05/21/israels-new-ideology-of-genocide/

"...From the foot soldiers to the big brass, from the flag-waving street folk to the height of academia, Israel is ideologically prepared to enact a Palestinian Shoa. Israeli society is ideologically prepared to enact a genocide on Palestinians right now, and if we do not make the comparison and act accordingly, Israel will march into the decisive stage, up to the 6th million Palestinian and over.

To stop the pending genocide, world leaders must cease talking and start acting. Arms embargo, economic sanctions and arrests of traveling war criminals will be a long-overdue start. Anything short of that is compliance."
