Israeli Crimes Without Punishment
Israel literally gets away with murder.
by Stephen Lendman
Serial criminality against humanity is official Israeli policy. Punishment never follows. Ruthlessness best describes these type abuses. Committing them without accountability is unconscionable.
It goes on daily. Western media scoundrels ignore it. Too few people understand what everyone should. Militarized occupation is hell. Terrorizing civilian men, women, and children is worst of all.
In early October, Israeli air strikes and artillery attacked Gaza. At least one death and numerous injuries followed. On October 11, Israeli aircraft struck again.
Gaza's Sheikh Radwan neighborhood was targeted. Missiles were fired at residential buildings. Major damage resulted. No injuries were reported.
On October 13, multiple Gazan locations were attacked. Two so-called Hamas training sites were targeted. Bureij refugee camp was struck. Material damage resulted. No injuries were reported.
Israel claimed terrorists were targeted. Residents said only nonviolent civilians were nearby. No one knows from day to day who'll live, die, remain healthy, or suffer serious injuries. Children are as vulnerable as adults.
Occupied Palestine is a war zone. Besieged Gaza is targeted often. No one is safe throughout the Territories. Attacks can occur anywhere, anytime.
Israeli forces show no mercy. Muslims are considered subhuman. Rights afforded Palestinians under international law are systematically spurned.
Israel gets away with murder because world leaders turn a blind eye. Failure makes them complicit in crimes against humanity. Their resumes are long and checkered.
Twenty-seven of them represent EU states. Twenty-one of them are NATO members. On October 12, they became Nobel Peace Prize recipients. Warmaking again was honored. It's a Nobel tradition. Its committee members believe war is peace.
Millions harmed go unmentioned. Militarized occupation punishes Palestinians grievously. Equity and justice are four-letter words. Fundamental human and civil rights are denied. Daily examples explain.
On September 6, the Israeli District Court in Jaffa denied Abu Selmiya family members justice. In 2006, Israel shelled their home. Nine victims died. They were nonviolent civilians.
The court denied Israeli culpability. Deaths, it said, occurred during ongoing military operations. International law leaves no ambiguity. Attacking civilians and non-military related targets is absolutely prohibited.
