Israel’s War Criminals In Their Own Words, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

May 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Israel’s public face, sustained and propagated by a wealthy and powerful diaspora that has significant control over the media, insists that the country is the Middle East’s only true democracy, that is operates under a rule of law for all its citizens and that its army is the “most moral in the world.” All of those assertions are false. Israel’s government favors its Jewish citizens through laws and regulations that are defined by religion. It in fact now identifies itself legally as a Jewish state with Christians and Muslim citizens having second class status. Israel’s army, meanwhile, has committed numerous war crimes against largely unarmed civilian populations in the past seventy years, both in Lebanon and directed against the Palestinians on the West Bank and Gaza.

In response to the past year’s Great March of Return protests staged by Gazans along the fence line that separates them from Israel, Israeli army snipers have shot dead 293 Palestinians and wounded seven thousand more. Twenty-thousand other Gazans have been harmed by other weapons used by the Israelis, to include canisters from the volleys of tear gas and rubber bullets. The numbers include hundreds of children and medical personnel trying to help the wounded, which reportedly have been particularly targeted.

From the Middle East to Northern Ireland, Western States are All Too Happy to Avoid Culpability for War Crimes – Counter Punch – Robert Fisk

When is a war crime not a war crime? When it’s committed by us, of course.

But this truism is taking on a new and sinister meaning today – and not just because Trump and his crackpots may be planning another clutch of atrocities in the Middle East.

For there is now a dangerous slippage becoming apparent in which western states are more ready than ever to countenance military crimes against humanity, to accept them, approve of them and to expect us to connive at these gross and sickening breaches of international law.

Israeli-Saudi Alliance behind War Crimes in Syria: Ex-US Senate Candidate – Tasnim News Agency

“…It is chiefly this alliance (the US, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia) against Assad, Iran, and Putin’s Russia, that has resulted in at least 500,000 deaths and the displacement of millions of Syrians with the meter still running. It is this alliance which has been using the American and Zionist media to falsely demonize Assad, Iran, and Russia, making false accusations about Assad and the employment of chemical weapons on his part, even while ignoring the support of the United States for the provable genocidal war crimes of Saudi Arabia in Yemen, the recent murder by Israel of over a thousand unarmed demonstrators in Gaza, and the regular employment by both the United States and Israel in recent years of white phosphorus and depleted uranium munitions in several regional conflicts,” Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas, told the Tasnim news agency.
