…introduction by Jonas E. Alexis, VT Editor

Norman Finkelstein made the point a few years ago that “Israel has to suffer a major defeat” in order to join the civilized world. Why did he say that? Well, Israel has never followed international and universal laws when it comes to politics and wars. Israel does whatever it pleases when it comes to wiping out civilians and innocent people. This is exactly what we are currently witnessing.

In his recent work Gaza: An Inquest into Its Martyrdom, which is published by the University of California Press, Finkelstein takes the Israeli project in Gaza by the balls by producing one document after another showing that Israel has committed crimes in Gaza—crimes that would put people like Ted Bundy or Ted Kaczynski to shame.

Finkelstein writes:

“The Gaza Strip is among the most densely populated places in the world. More than two-thirds of its inhabitants are refugees, and more than half are under eighteen years of age.

…‘operations’ against Gaza’s largely defenseless population. Thousands have perished, and tens of thousands have been left homeless. In the meantime, Israel has subjected Gaza to a merciless illegal blockade. What has befallen Gaza is a man-made humanitarian disaster.”[1]

Gaza, Finkelstein writes in the preface of the book, “is a distinctly evil crime,” and “the documentary record bears it out.”[2]

Finkelstein takes all of Israel’s arguments with respect to its operation and Gaza and scholarly tears them to shred. Israel continues to act in ways that are incompatible with the moral and political order largely because Israel has been getting away with its evil deeds without any repercussions from the West. Enough is enough.

Israel’s Murderous Attacks on Gaza

By  Yanis Iqbal

Israel is again conducting bloody attacks on Gaza. Interminable rounds of shelling by Israeli terrorists – known as Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) – have left in their wake infant corpses and blood-stained rubble of residential buildings. Every attempt is being made to decapitate the present and disembowel any hope for a better future. The current massacre campaigns by the Zionist state have followed the well-established pattern of colonial aggressions, characterized by an unconscionable logic of inhumanity.

1) Israeli state & Zionist settlers tried to illegally displace Palestinians from Sheikh Jarrah.

2) Palestinians resisted.

3) Israeli troops brutally cracked down on Palestinians, storming one of the holiest sites, Al-Aqsa Mosque, on one of the holiest nights, Laylat-al Qadr, of the holiest month, Ramadan, in one of the holiest cities, Jerusalem, while Muslims prayed peacefully. Israeli raids continued for two days, injuring hundreds.

4) Palestinians fired rockets in retaliation.

5) Israel ruthlessly bombed Gaza, killing 24 Palestinians, including 9 children, and wounding more than 100 others.

Hypocritical Response

The US – instead of denouncing the child-murdering bombing of Gaza- hypocritically decried the rockets fired by Palestine on Israel, saying it recognizes Israel’s right to defend itself. Speaking at his daily press briefing, US State of Department spokesperson Ned Price glibly said:

“Let me start by saying that the United States condemns in the strongest terms the barrage of rocket attacks fired into Israel in recent hours. This is an unacceptable escalation.” “While we urge de-escalation on all sides, we also recognize Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself and to defend its people and its territory.”

This is pure doublespeak, modeled after US President Joe Biden’s statement that “Israelis wake up every morning facing an existential threat. That’s why we always have to be adamant that Israel must be able to defend itself.” Price well knows that the situation in Palestine can’t be “de-escalated” as long as Israel vilely uses the principle of “self-defense” to rent the Gazan air with cries of agony.

  1. What did they do to you to have you so totally brainwashed. Subliminal messaging, Neuroweapons, scalar weapons, Is it in the water. Palestinians never accepted the terms of what Israeli offered them. After all all of it was their land. Stolen by the International Community to give it away to the Zionist jews. Who in turn dit not keep the agreements of the contract. Namely to protect the Palestinians and their properties. Jews kept the best parts of the land for themselves, the coastal area and left Palestinians leftovers. It is like stealing someone’s house and then say you can have the attic. Exactly what Jews did and with it carbombs, murders, deportation to concentrationcamps. Sounding familiar. Much of my historylessons when young. Other players. It seems you failed to eduate yourself with some true history. Plenty of israeli jews who did the research. Miko Peled, Shlomo Sand. Instead you choose rabbis that want to enslave Arabs. Not even 5 % DNA of ancient Israelites. Palestinians going back 15.000 years in the Levant. What burdens to your soul you are all creating.

  2. I think it’s the Palestinians that need to be defeated. Ship them out or mow them down. They have been offered a two state solution as far back as Yasser Arafat and they refuse. Their leadership is corrupt like all political leadership. So the people will suffer or die till they decide to move. The Native Americans suffered till they decided to quit fighting.

    • How come that after the WW II Holocaust you so reversed your position on pogroms, deportation, murders and concentrationcamps. For the life of me it is beyond me.

  3. Israel was created by the USA, is the 51st state of the USA and is the American Colony of Israel. They are always acting as the innocent victim. Anyone hated by Jews will be called an anti-Semite. War has always been the USA’s and Israel’s primary preoccupation. Judaism is based on the Talmud and has nothing to do with Exodus or the Bible. USA is the Second Beast and the False Prophet, and it will be thrown into the Lake of Fire together with Satan and the First Beast. Jerusalem will be wiped out when the New Jerusalem descends from heaven.

  4. According to the ordinances of Jahwh in the Hebrew bible, that tribal god punshes his tribes for three or four generations for adoring and cultivating others tha Yehova . Now they have worshpet Ba’al and Mammon for too long a tume, so retribution is immanent.

  5. Now is the time .. to get rid of these devil worshipers – from all angles – rid the world of these parasites.

  6. The bombing of Gaza can continue because powerful countries like USA “””shamelessly invert”””the roles of Israelis and Palestinians: the Israeli aggressor once again becomes the persecuted victim, as per the Exodus story, while the Palestinians, strangled, wounded and immobilized in the open air prison that is Gaza, enclosed within electrified walls and fences, are transformed into terrorists, relentlessly and heartlessly persecuting the innocent Israeli victims. This inversion has real effects: it serves to reinforce the image of the Palestinian as enemy, as sub-human, an entity not entitled to any dignity.
    Yes, and as long as America, and the rest of the western world go along with it, you can know without question the Israeli “occupation” involves much more than Palestine.

  7. Israel has had every American president since 9/11 firmly by the balls and there is nothing that can be done about it in the present Zionist-controlled milieu. This was most obvious under Trump as he was totally beholden not only to the Likudnik mobsters he surrounded himself with for decades, but to the the crazy Christian Zionists who comprise his rock-solid base as well. Their end-times eschatology involves a cataclysmic war that will be the end of the USA as we know it. Biden now faces the daunting task of putting Humpty Dumpty back together again and step back from the precipice. Sorry, Joe, can’t be done…

    • Israel has had every American President since at LEAST FDR by the balls. Can you think of any reason for the US not to retaliate for the USS Liberty “incident” (murder)?

  8. Ben Gurion is closed not because of “security” but because they want to stop the exodus … lol.

    • A stout observation indeed, master NewtRalllyt. Bu maybe Lydda Arport (or “Ben Gurion” if You enjoy badmothing that man) is also closed for passanger traffic for two other reasons, one for military bombers being prepared to use it, and secondly because Lot/Lydda is big enouph to maybe be struck by primitive rockets sent up from The ‘Aza strip.

    • Did Ben Gurion deport Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz for the Germans in exchange for a travelpermit to Palestine for him and his family? If so beyond despicable and a warcrime. Already out George Soros bought their Artworks.
