A Six-Step Program to Prosecute the Zionists Who Support Genocide and Political Corruption
“We, as concerned Israeli citizens, need to tell the world that military cooperation and diplomatic and trade ties with Israel must stop immediately until they [Israel] respect international law.”
In the similar vein, Israeli peace activist and writer Miko Peled, who grew up in a Zionist family, added:
“I call on people of conscience… around the world to support the Palestinian struggle and unite to call for an end to the apartheid regime in Palestine.”
Peled moved on to say that Israel’s “horrendous crimes” against the Palestinians can no longer be ignored.
“Israel is getting billions of dollars from America [and] it is doing business with the entire western world, mostly in the defense industry. Western powers are supporting what Israel does…
“We don’t see sanctions or Israeli ambassadors being sent back to Tel Aviv, but quite the opposite. These need to be done immediately, without conditions.”
Medical doctor Gabor Mate has recently written in the Toronto Star:
“As a Jewish youngster growing up in Budapest, an infant survivor of the Nazi genocide, I was for years haunted by a question resounding in my brain with such force that sometimes my head would spin: ‘How was it possible? How could the world have let such horrors happen?
“It was a naïve question, that of a child. I know better now: such is reality. Whether in Vietnam or Rwanda or Syria, humanity stands by either complicitly or unconsciously or helplessly, as it always does.
“In Gaza today we find ways of justifying the bombing of hospitals, the annihilation of families at dinner, the killing of pre-adolescents playing soccer on a beach.
“In Israel-Palestine the powerful party has succeeded in painting itself as the victim, while the ones being killed and maimed become the perpetrators.
“In Israel-Palestine the powerful party has succeeded in painting itself as the victim, while the ones being killed and maimed become the perpetrators. ‘They don’t care about life,’ Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, abetted by the Obamas and Harpers of this world, ‘we do.’
“Netanyahu, you who with surgical precision slaughter innocents, the young and the old, you who have cruelly blockaded Gaza for years, starving it of necessities, you who deprive Palestinians of more and more of their land, their water, their crops, their trees — you care about life?
“There is no understanding Gaza out of context — Hamas rockets or unjustifiable terrorist attacks on civilians — and that context is the longest ongoing ethnic cleansing operation in the recent and present centuries, the ongoing attempt to destroy Palestinian nationhood.”
How does Netanyahu respond? Well, he made a statement last Sunday saying that those children have been indirect victims of the war, since Hamas have been using human shields. But Netanyahu knows very well that there is no evidence for this mumbo jumbo:
“On the day that Al-Farouq was attacked, the Israeli military also carried out a missile strike on a home for the handicapped in Beit Lahiya, killing two disabled residents and injuring four others.
“A neighbour claimed that a member of the Islamic Jihad group and his wife had also lived in the building; but he could provide no names or dates for this.
“Jamilla Alaiwa, a 59 year old social worker who founded the home 24 years ago told me that this was categorically untrue. ‘If the Israelis have proof of this let them make it public. There was no one from Islamic Jihad or Hamas living there. We are not involved in politics.’
“The Israeli military stated they were investigating what happened; their conclusions have not reached Gaza. Were they, perhaps, fed false information?
