Did Israel Overstep This Time?
Daily Israeli crimes of war and against humanity.
by Stephen Lendman
Rogue states get away with murder only so long. Eventually their crimes catch up with them. Israeli policies are self-defeating. How long can killing civilian men, women, children, infants, and the elderly be called self-defense?
Palestinians and eyewitnesses explain best. Mondoweiss contributor Adie Mormech saw smoke rise after Israeli bombs exploded.
"Words fail me," he said. Bombing feels almost constant.
"I can barely write a sentence with more news."
Six injuries from one bombing.
A four-year old child struck playing in the street.
An elderly Zaytoun neighborhood man killed. Four others injured.
The same scenario plays out across Gaza. Trapped civilians have nowhere to hide. Israel terrorizes them. World leaders blame Palestinian victims. They're complicit in Israeli crimes.
Adie teachers 12-year old Abdullah Samouni. "We're really scared," he said. He lost his father. During Cast Lead, his four-year old brother was shot. "In three days, Abdullah was injured and lost 29 members of his extended family."
How much more can he and others take? Al Shifa Hospital admits patients constantly"."an elderly man, a young man, a child, two more children."
A 10-month old child with brain damage and a fractured skull. Her tiny body wasn't strong enough to survive.
Who knows what's next. "The complete madness of this violence makes me wonder what we have done to ourselves. How do we allow humanity to manifest itself in this way."
