Edward Said called it "America's Last Taboo" in an article he wrote shortly before his death. It was also a chapter heading in John Pilger's book titled, "Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire."

Said blamed the power of Zionism to inflict unspeakable abuses on an entire people and get away with it for so long. Pilger referred to a "five and a half decade cover-up of Israel's oppression of the Palestinians."

Observatory regional director Amani al-Sinwar discussed grave Israeli human rights abuses, including unjustifiable restrictions controlling their lives.

Separately, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem (Navi) Pillay said her visit to Occupied Palestine "brought (her) face to face with many large-scale human rights violations stemming from Israel's occupation...."

Among others, she mentioned illegal Palestinian transfers from their home areas, settlement expansions, settler violence, excessive Israeli security force abuses, and Gaza's suffocating siege.
