Israel's Rogue Killing Machine

Over four days, Israel murdered at least 25 Palestinians and injured dozens, including women and children.

by Stephen Lendman

Israel's entire history reflects depraved, out-of-control targeted and mass killings. Days of unrelenting bombing, murdering and injuring Gazans shows its contempt for law and human life.

Netanyahu exceeds the worst of Ariel Sharon and other rogue Israeli leaders. Gideon Levy says Israel never had one like him before. He governs by deceit, mocks the peace process, and reflects extreme racist hate for Arabs.

Murdering Gazans shows why. So did his comment saying he'll kill as many more as he wishes "as long as necessary" to achieve his degenerate aims.

Four merciless bombing days left at least 25 dead and dozens injured, many seriously. Civilians, including children were victimized. Washington expressed support. Blaming victims for Israeli crimes, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland spoke for war criminal Hillary Clinton saying:

"We condemn in the strongest terms the rocket fire from Gaza by terrorists into southern Israel in recent days, which has dramatically and dangerously escalated in the past day."  

"We call on those responsible to take immediate action to stop these cowardly acts. We regret the loss of life and injuries, and we call on both sides to make every effort to restore calm."

America's scurrilous UN envoy Susan Rice also "thoroughly condemn(ed) terrorist rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israeli towns & cities and call(ed) on both sides to restore calm." Obama so far said nothing.

Israel initiated violence. Palestinians responded defensively. Washington and Israel call self-defense terrorism. On March 11, Max Blumenthal asked if Obama green-lighted Netanyahu's attacks in return for delaying action on Iran until America's ready.

As a result, Israel's killing machine rages out of control in day four. International law prohibits extrajudicial and indiscriminate killing. The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights said it reflects Israel's "disregard for its moral and legal obligations."

The international community encourages Israeli lawlessness through silence or statements too weak-kneed to matter. Al Mezan called Israel's latest attacks "part of a (longstanding) pattern....that have....caused damage to civilians and civilian property."

With other human rights groups, Al Mezan condemned Israel's attacks and called for international community intervention to stop them.
