It’s simply unbelievable to watch Israel continue to get away with these crimes against humanity without a collective world clampdown. Of course – many world citizens already know why Israel continues to get a way with murder … literally. That reason is simple; the United States vetoes any attempt at the United Nations to hold Israel accountable for their war crimes and violations of international law.
What we need is a “coalition of the willing” to force Israel’s hand … a coalition that will force Israel to go back to 1967 borders with threat of force. Israel has shown it’s not an honest broker in the peace process and the world needs to stand together to stamp out Israel’s fascist tendencies. It’s hard to imagine a good outcome when the government’s ideology is based on blood purity and eugenics.
The oppression that the Palestinian people have to live through on a daily basis is simply mind blowing. It has existed for decades and it is a systematic, intentional gameplan to forcibly cleanse Palestinians off their lands. And it’s been working like a charm. But whatever – go watch Dancing With the Stars.
We’ve shared numerous examples of this kind of oppression on our Facebook page and this website. For example – we shared that Palestinian children can be imprisoned by the Israeli military for up to 6 months without charge or access to their parents (source); it is illegal for Israel to do this to Jewish children however. I could point to the Oxfam report that says Israel is responsible for “two decades of obstruction and broken promises” (source). The available evidence to further prove my point is nearly endless approaching infinity.
And now a new report by the Defence for Children International Palestine points out a horribly frightening fact. Israel is the only nation in the world that prosecutes children in military courts (but not if they’re Jewish). Not Iran, not Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria or any other potential future country that Israel may look to attack in the future … just Israel.
They write HERE:
Israel is the only nation that automatically and systematically prosecutes children in military courts that lack basic and fundamental fair trial guarantees. Israeli military court judges, either active duty or reserve officers in the Israeli army, rarely exclude evidence obtained by coercion or torture, including confessions drafted in Hebrew, a language most Palestinian children do not understand…
During 2012, 74 percent of Palestinian kids suffered some form of physical violence during arrest, transfer or interrogation… Despite clear prohibitions under international law, Israel continues to use solitary confinement against Palestinian children solely for interrogation purposes… In addition to being arrested and ill-treated, a generation of Palestinian children have been shot, shelled and bombed… Their homes and schools have been attacked and children have witnessed numerous horrific and tragic events. They have lost parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and neighbors, as well as their own legs, arms and other body parts…
Repeated military offensives on Gaza and a draconian six-year-old blockade have led to persistent allegations of collective punishment of the civilian population, a violation of international humanitarian law. Since the outbreak of the second intifada in 2000, Israeli forces are responsible for the death of more than 1,000 children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, according to evidence collected by Defense for Children International Palestine.
And as we shared HERE – Israel has been responsible for the torture of Palestinian children when in custody. Some have even died.
And there is this recent situation where the Israeli military arrested a 5 year old for “throwing a rock”that hit a tire of an Israeli settler. It’s systematic oppression.
