Israel's Genocidal War on Palestine Rages

Israel’s Genocidal War on Palestine Rages

by Stephen Lendman

Longstanding Israeli policy calls for maximum Jews and minimum

Arabs - ideally eliminating them altogether by ethnic cleansing and slow-motion genocide.

Netanyahu and likeminded fascists are the leading exponents of extremist racism - much like Hitler’s final solution for an ethnically pure Aryan state cleansed of its unwanted people.

Israel wants a region of balkanized mini-states too impotent to contest its hegemonic dominance, partnered with America’s presence.

Daily events reveal Zionist viciousness. Most are largely ignored - especially in the West. On Sunday, Israeli soldiers kidnapped 21-year-old Majdi Al-Muhtaseb, beat him for no reason, and forced him to drink gasoline.

It’s toxic. Exposure through ingestion or inhaling can cause cancer and other health problems - including breathing difficulties, esophageal burning, abdominal abnormalities, vision loss, bloody stool, convulsions, unconsciousness and more.

Majdi was hospitalized with severe pains. His conditions is being evaluated.

Last Monday, Israel’s Ministerial Committee drafted a new so-called “anti-terrorism” law.  Palestinians defending their lawful rights are targeted.

The measure is expected to be approved in committee and after three Knesset readings. It expands the definition of “terrorist” organizations. Its members face imprisonment up to 25 years. Anyone providing financial, technical or other support can receive 15-year sentences.

Torture has always been official Israeli policy. Knesset members legalized it by approving excruciating force-feeding for Palestinian hunger strikers.

The Orwellian titled Law to Prevent Harm of Hunger Strike flies in the face of core international humanitarian law and universally accepted medical ethics.

Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) Director Raji Sourani commented, saying:

“Hunger strike is the last resort for a Palestinian prisoner. When all other means fail, a prisoner resorts to struggle using of his body cells and empty stomach in protest against inhuman detention conditions and to claim his legitimate rights as enshrined in international law, including international human rights law and international humanitarian law.”

“This has become impossible after this latest amendment. (It’s approval) reflects the state of moral retrogression of Israel, which perpetrates violations of international human rights law and humanitarian law in cold blood with consent of state official bodies and the Knesset.”

UN Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment Juan Mendez said “(i)t is not acceptable to force-feed or use threats of force-feeding or other physical or psychological coercion against individuals who have opted for the extreme recourse of a hunger strike to protest against their detention without charge and conditions of detention and treatment.”

“Feeding induced by threats, coercion, force or use of physical restraints are tantamount to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.”

PLO Executive Committee official Hanan Ashrawi said “Israel is deliberately and willfully defying international consensus to create ‘Greater Israel’ on historical Palestine.”

“With its rapid, intensive and overwhelming violations, Israel has gone completely out of control, and it is quantitatively making it impossible for the international community to pursue these violations systematically.”

On Sunday, Israeli forces again attacked Palestinian Al-Aqsa Mosque worshipers - to let about 30 extremist Jews enter the compound (where they don’t belong) under armed police escort.

The Palestinian Al Haq human rights group called the immolation of 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha “emblematic of Israel’s settlement enterprise” and complicity with extremist settlers.

It said near-daily settler attacks on Palestinians reflect “institutionalized impunity” - authorities turning a blind eye to crimes demanding punishment.

Israeli police and Shin Bet security officials “identified a pattern of pre-dawn attempts to set Palestinian houses on fire, with the intent of burning it along with its inhabitants,” but did nothing to confront it, according to media reports said Al Haq.

These crimes have unofficial state sanctioning. Outrage expressed by Netanyahu and other Israeli officials belie their ethnic cleansing war on Palestine.

Al Haq quoted a UN Human Rights Council Fact-Finding Mission saying “the motivation behind this violence and the intimidation against the Palestinians as well as their properties is to drive the local populations away from their lands and allow the settlements to expand.”

Justice for Palestinians is incompatible with Israel’s lawless settlement enterprise - on stolen Palestinian land, expanding at the expense of forcibly displaced residents, punctuated by near-daily acts of security force and settler violence.

Life in Occupied Palestine reflects systematic Israeli state terror against an entire population. Each incident reveals the greater evil.
