Israeli Terror Attacks: Day 5

Daily Israeli crimes of war and against humanity.

by Stephen Lendman

Sunday as this is written is day 5. Monday when it's read will be day 6. How much longer will this continue? How much more death, destruction, and human misery is tolerable?

Seventy-two confirmed Palestinian deaths were reported. Sunday attacks killed 24. Most are civilians. They include 14 children and eight women. 

Over 550 others were injured. All but about 15 are civilians. They include 145 children and 86 women. 

Israel deliberately targets noncombatants and civilian sites. It's official policy in all Israeli wars. International laws are spurned. Israel contemptuously ignores them. 

Accountability never follows because world leaders don't care. Israel has carte blanche to kill, injure, maim, destroy, torture, and terrorize an entire population.

On November 15, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Pillar of Cloud goals are to "strengthen Israel's deterrence, cripple the rocket-firing capacity, and strike a painful blow to Hamas and the terrorist organizations and minimize harm to the home front."

He, Netanyahu, and other Israeli officials lie. Their strategy is state terror. Their goal is unchallenged occupation harshness. Crimes of war and against humanity are tactics to maintain and enforce it.

Justifiable resistance is called terrorism. Premeditated Israeli mass murder and destruction are called self-defense. All rogue states operate this way. Israel is one of the worst.

Sunday morning headlines include the following:

Israeli gunboats shell Gaza's coast.

Gazan hospitals stretched. Need medications and supplies to treat patients.

Operation Pillar of Cloud to be intensified.

Local media offices were bombed. Seven journalists were injured. Beirut-based Al Quds satellite channel journalist Khader Zahar lost a leg. Ma'an News and German broadcaster ARD were struck. So were an Islamic Jihad radio station and Hamas broadcast channel.
