When the United Nations, a globalist-led organization calls Israel and its leadership “criminal”, it is because the crimes being committed are so great, that not even the UN Secretary General can justify.
It is not everyday that we hear Ban-ki-moon or anyone else calling a government criminal, especially when that government is a long-time U.S. ally. But lately, we’ve heard that adjective often when people describe Israel’s action in Gaza. Some journalists, doctors, researchers and simple folks have gone beyond to call it what it is: Genocide.
But this weekend, the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon has condemned in the strongest terms, the “criminal” bombing carried out by Israeli forces in the vicinity of a UN school in Rafah, which he described as a “serious violation of international humanitarian law.” “The UN shelters should be safe areas, not combat ones”, said the UN Secretary General.
“The Israeli army has been repeatedly informed of the location of these places, so this attack, along with other violations of international law, should be investigated and those responsible, brought to justice,” added the general secretary.
“It is a moral atrocity and a criminal act” said the UN secretary general, who has declared that he is “deeply shocked by the abominable escalating of violence and loss of lives of hundreds of Palestinian civilians after the breakdown of humanitarian ceasefire on August 1.”
Ban Ki Moon has finished asking both parties, Hamas and the regime in Tel Aviv, to end the fighting and return to the path of peace. This “madness” he concluded, “must stop”.
The bombing of several schools ran by the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) have taken place throughout the ethnic cleansing campaign that Israel began a few weeks ago. Almost 2,000 civilians have been killed in called blood since Israel started bombing Gaza. Almost 1,000 of the victims are children.
The statement from Ban-ki-moon came after Israel bombed yet another UN school in Gaza, killing 16 people and leaving more than 200 injured.
The Israel Defense Forces have opened an inquiry into the bombing, which occurred after UNRWA alerted the Israeli army 17 times about the exact location of the school. Last week, the head of the American Zionist Organization, Mort Klein, accused the Palestinian population of renting out their living rooms to Hamas as storage space and said that for that reason Israel had enough justification to blow entire neighborhoods up.
He said that because Palestinians have supposedly stacked up Hamas rockets in their kitchens and living rooms, Israel can and must murder thousands of Palestinians. Mr. Klein did not show proof of his statement, but did described Hamas and Palestinians in general as “Nazis”.
Mr. Klein forgot to mention that the brutal regime that governs over Israel was literally parachuted in by Adolf Hitler himself along with the Americans and the British, and that the forced presence of Israel in Palestinian land is one of the reasons why Palestinians are extremely upset about the way Israel has been acting since the occupation started.
While talking about Israeli sovereignty and the right that the Jewish people have to live in peace in their state, Israel has been an avid supported of military coups in the region in an effort to destabilize Arab nations.
Separately, the U.S. government has described as “unfortunate” the Israeli bombing near the UN school in Rafah. The U.S. government has criticized the attack and called for a greater effort in preventing civilian deaths.
“America is appalled by the deplorable bombing near the school, which housed 3,000 refugees,” said U.S. spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, in a statement. “The suspicion that militants are operating close by does not justify endangering the lives of so many innocent civilians,” she added.
While most of the world has shown disgust every time Israel murders innocent civilians, the main stream media, specifically some bloggers, have taken the time to propel the narrative that governments such as the one in Israel are justified when launching military attacks against defenseless populations.
Most governments in Latin America have denounced Israel’s actions as crimes against humanity. Bolivia, for example, has declared Israel a “terrorist state”.
Despite the global condemnation, there are still those who think that genocide is justified. A blogger for the Times of Israel, Yochanan Gordon, wrote an article titled “When Genocide is Permissible,” where he advocated for genocide as long as government leaders thought it was justifiable.
“What other way then is there to deal with an enemy of this nature other than obliterate them completely?” Gordon asked in his article, which was quickly deleted from the publication. Gordon later apologized for the article and the Times of Israel declared the post to be in “blatant breach of editorial guidelines.” According to the Times, the newspaper “discontinued the writer’s blog.”
People like Gordon, or Benjamin Netanyahu, who openly call for the merciless murder of innocent civilians as a proper response to what they call an ongoing threat to the Israeli State, sin twice in our view. Firstly, they believe it is kosher to murder innocent people as long as they can find a justification of their own; and secondly, they cowardly call for such genocide from the comfort of their air conditioned offices.
While the number of dead Palestinians increase by the hundreds a week, Israel has suffered the loss of 64 IDF soldiers who participated in the ground invasion of Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said on Saturday that Israel will act “according to our security needs and only according to our security needs”.
The current genocidal campaign in Gaza has already cost Palestinians more deaths than the previous one launched by Israel in 2008.
Because Western nations have not stopped Israel from killing Palestinians – as they would do in non-aligned nations, the daily death of Gazans has become a new normal in world affairs, and whilst thousands of Gazans are killed and entire neighborhoods are destroyed, the remaining Palestinians are being drawn to an even smaller portion of their land.
If Israel is not stopped soon, its military campaign will achieve a parallel goal: Reduce the Gazan population to a number that is small enough to cage them into an even smaller piece of land so that Israel can expand further out into Palestinian land.
