Blood in the Streets in Occupied Palestine
by Stephen Lendman
Israel considers Palestine a free-fire zone - ruthlessly brutalizing and murdering Palestinians in cold blood unaccountably.
In its weekly report on Israeli human rights abuses, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said Israel “continued…attack(ing) Palestinian civilians and their property in the occupied Palestinian territories…for the reporting period” ending September 16, 2015 - before its forces desecrated the Al-Aqsa Mosque and compound (Islam’s third holiest site) for three consecutive days, rampaging violently, inflicting scores of injuries.
On Friday, state terror continued unabated. Israeli forces attacked peaceful Palestinian protesters across the West Bank violently, using tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and live fire. Dozens more injuries followed.
Maan News reported “(d)emonstrators raised flags and chanted slogans in support of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Christian holy sites, with local popular committee member Abdullah Abu Rahmeh condemning Israeli raids in East Jerusalem's Old City.”
Clashes occurred in East Jerusalem, Qalqiliya, Hebron, Nablus, Tulkarem, Bethlehem and elsewhere. Hamas called for a day of rage following Friday prayers in response to Israeli Al-Aqsa attacks.
Bil’in village Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements activists along with international supporters were attacked during their weekly nonviolent protest. They called for defending Islamic and Christian holy sites in Occupied Palestine as well as releasing thousands of Palestinian political prisoners.
Days of Israeli violence left scores of Palestinians, journalists covering events and international supporters injured. Popular Committee spokesperson Abdullah Abu Rahma denounced Israeli viciousness, its willful efforts to desecrate Al-Aqsa and extremists in its governing regime wanting it replaced with a third Jewish temple.
Hebron area Palestinians protested peacefully against repeated Israeli Al-Aqsa assaults. Israel responded violently. Dozens of civilian men, women and children were injured.
Israel’s war on Palestine rages daily. Netanyahu intends using live fire against Palestinian children and youths throwing stones - in response to daily Israeli security force brutality, their stones v. heavily armed soldiers and militarized police, a mismatch assuring greater Palestinian bloodshed.
Israel’s Or Commission appointed to investigate the killing of 12 Arab citizens and one Palestinian at the start of the second Intifada said in its report:
“It must be unequivocally clarified that the police (and other security forces) cannot use live fire, including sniper fire, to disperse crowds. Live ammunition is reserved for special situations…The guiding principle must be that potentially lethal measures can only be used in situations of clear and immediate mortal danger.”
Israel systematically violates international law, its own Basic Laws, its High Court decisions and the results of commissions like Or appointed to investigate its excessive use of force against Palestinians.
Its viciousness continues out-of-control - international community condemnation entirely absent, letting Israel continue getting away with extreme brutality and cold-blooded murder.
