Gaza Still Boils
Israel's slow-motion genocide continues.
by Stephen Lendman
Pillar of Cloud settled nothing. Little changed for 1.7 million Gazans. Suffocating siege continues. Israel provoked two border incidents.
One Palestinian was shot and killed. Others were wounded. They threatened no one. These type incidents are commonplace. They won't end. Palestinians are blamed for Israeli crimes.
Daily life continues as before. Israel doesn't give. It takes, oppresses, and ignores rule of law principles. Memorandum of understanding terms aren't worth the paper they're written on.
Claims about Israeli concessions are premature at best. Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Israel agreed to permit fishing up to six nautical miles offshore.
For years, it's been three. Big catches occur far offshore. Israel wants Palestinians denied them. That policy won't change.
