UN accuses Israel of war crimes

January 17th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Finally.

UNRWA, the UN aid agency still operating in Gaza, has set the wheels in motion for an international investigation into Israel’s alleged war crimes. It follows another Israeli bombing of a UN school in Gaza – 2 are dead.

This adds to a growing list of crimes against the United Nations – 2 UN aid workers were killed at the border during a ceasefire, 40 dead after 2 UN schools were bombed more than a week ago, a few days ago the UN building in Gaza City was targeted destroying all aid and medicine, and now a UN school’s been bombed again.

Crimes against the UN are crimes against the world.

But that’s not all. Israel is also accused of:

-using white phosphorous (even, shamelessly, when they bombed the UN building),

-bombing hospitals,

-blocking Red Cross workers from helping the wounded,

-targeting Red Cross workers,

evacuating 110 people into a building which the army then attacked killing 30,

-routine use of human shields (normally by taking over a family home to use as a sniper position, and ordering the family to stay in the front room), and many many more.

The Red Cross (the International Committee), the Palestinian Red Crescent, UNRWA and human rights field workers now have the difficult task of gathering evidence which will be able to stand up in an international war crimes tribunal.

Olmert, Livni and Barak may stay in their boltholes in Israel for the rest of their lives. They may never face jail, but the world will make sure they are convicted, that they can never leave Israel again, and that Israel is made a pariah state until these criminals are surrendered to The Hague.

Netenyahu. You’re next.

    94% of Israelis supported the massacre, according to a poll. The Israelis are so convinced of their righteousness they can’t believe that anyone reasonable would consider them wrong, in anything. Zionist education has produced a generation which is not only wrong, but now profoundly irrational. What they’ve just done is like a man humiliated by a smaller man in a bar who goes out into the street and finds a small child to beat to a pulp. When he’s finished, he feels strong again. This is psychodrama, not strategy. It’s as insane as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. And, in a very very sad and frightening way, it’s encouraging. Zionism is in now in its insane stage, its mind broken by its own insane contradictions, and it is slowly but surely dying.
