Posted in: War crimes prosecutor seeks arrest of Israeli and Hamas leaders, including Netanyahu See in context

Tdawg, you dont get to make a statement, get proven wrong then change the goal posts.

Israel has always controlled Gaza.

And ,to split hairs, the blockade following Hamas' win in the election happened , the day after the election win .

Did Israel have a panic attack and decide to pre emptively blockade Gaza 244 hours after Hamas won ?

Israel has problem without a plan.

What to do with millions of displaced refugees that followed the Nakba.

when the ICJ issues warrants of arrest for Black African leaders /dictators, or for Putin , is the ICJ being anti Semitic there as well ?

And Biden barks about International Rules Based Order and patrols various sea ways trying to enforce it, yet when a non US and Independent body like the UN or ICJ makes a decision the US doesnt like , Biden whines like a child.

Maybe someone could google what Biden''s reaction to the ICJ action on Putin was ?

But I bet the pro Israeli posters here will call this decision by the ICJ "anti semitic "

It like a magic phrase in which all wrongdoing is absolved.

Zibala, children are too small to be effective human shields....need a big ,fat person for good coverage.

Oh, BT, those denying Palestine ever existed will be interested to know Golda Meir {Spelling ? } once held a Palestinian Passport.

You can google it....she said so on a Thames TV interview

The "intent " aspect in the crime of Genocide is set out in the UN description of the crime.

The widespread destruction of cultural, religious, agricultural, water, fuel, electricity, now absence of any learning institutions, from Kindergarten to Universities, the with holding of medical supplies , withholding aid, such that there is now famine, the forced displacement of millions, the rendering into abject poverty with concurrent destruction of fresh water supplies and sewerage systems, leading to starvation and disease....

AND THE WORDS OF POLITICAL AND IDF LEADERS CALLING FOR THE EXPULSION OF PALESTINIANS

All these are evidence of INTENT TO COMMIT GENOCIDE

"troops and tanks pushed in CONGESTED PART of the Gaza strip ""

Took over some parts of Raffa packed with DISPLACED PEOPLE '

"Israel has continued strikes in Jabalia the largest of Gaza''s 8 historic. refugee camps "

"Israel has continued to carry out precise operations against terrorists and infrastructure "

"Israel says it must capture Raffa to destroy Hamas and ensure the countries security "

""Israel is committing genocide " not included in the article but the subtext makes the IDF intentions clear

Women can do what they choose without know it all Politicians and commentators here deciding on the destiny of women.

I know in Australia some of our most successful women in Law and Politics have no children.

I know of other brilliant women who chose to leave such professions because it was incompatible with raising children.

If child birth is so essential for all women....make it easier for them to have professional lives whilst raising children.

I wont bother with Zibala''s repeated silly claims but will note that al Mawasi is a sandy patch of desert land where Gazan's have never lived because the area is uninhabitable.

Thats the "safe zone " Israel proposes.

As well, all agencies from UN, Red Cross, MSF and even USA heads are saying AID IS BEING BLOCKED and this is contrary to the UNSC Resolution made as an interim measure while that Court considers the GENOCIDE case bought before it.

Israel fighting a dirty ,extremist war where the end result is more deaths of the native Palestinians and more land for the land thieves.

Times of Israel says 6 people arrested for blocking convoy. These are figures provided by Police. An eye witness saw no arrests

A Jordanian run aid centre was set alight....no arrests.

Israel is having its own mini civil disturbance between those that want all Palestinians out [ Kared Kushner

" Has a Dream "....condo's on the Gaza Coast for wealthy Jews ; and those that want the hostages back and resumption of peace talks.

Shalom to the latter group....must take bravery to oppose the mob.

I dont know if the food vandals were arrested.

If so, then what...indefinite detention without trial, as for Palestinians.

What I do know is that the ICJ made orders for Israel to do more to allow more aid to enter Gaza and it has failed to do so.

And Netanyahu being without a clue as to a post war construction shows his one dimensional mind.

Israel has NEVER allowed outside UN Forces to be part of any piece keeping role.

Finally, if Hamas remains in underground tunnels why is Israel bombing every above ground structure it can see ....with the help of AI programs and US 2000 pound bombs.

The Palestinians are the victims of a western world disinterest while Israel remains off the leash.

Why should Palestinians accept a "plan " in which they were not involved in discussing ?

Some famous words from a British Leader ..."I do not propose to involve the NATIVE POPULATION " in these talks "

Read some history on the over bearing tactics used by Britain and others to enforce a deal that excluded the original inhabitants.

And google this...no questions from you to me....research is a learning task

When my Mother died I wanted to write something for the ceremony of spreading her ashes.

I did a lot of reading from the "net "" and one piece really struck me

From India, and its message was after a period of mourning "let the deceased loved one go ".

That allows the soul to move on and the living to also move on and resume their lives.

Death comes for us all and should not be feared.

I believe even The Buddha, on his last days, spoke to his disciples saying why grieve for an event that we all will face.

Netanyahu cant think of two things at the same time.

Next ? what are the post war plans ?..."ask me when we destroy Hamas.""

Even top military people are saying Israel {read Netanyahu } has failed

Hamas still fighting...captives still held.

The greatest pleasure is to crush your enemies, steal their wealth and hear the lamentations of their women

Genghis Khan said something akin to this.

Israel has moved back into that era....the difference being Israel not defeating armed soldiers of the Hamas resistance but doing a good job killing women and children.

Blinkin has opposed the Raffa invasion, and says Israel IDF tactics are non existent.

There is no end game or plan for the day after war ends.

The UN will again sanction Israel for not complying with a direction to allow aid into Gaza and meanwhile Israeli people continue to shop, eat at restaurants, go home to families as if the war is on another planet.

I understand al Masawi is basically a zero water, desert waste land....there is no infrastructure or roads even....its like a mini Sahara.....but that where the Israeli Masters are "directing " the subjugated to go

Great idea.

BTW The footage of Hamas resistance fighters I''ve seen shows no "human shields ", just a well thought out military tactic of using the rubble of Israeli destroyed buildings to shoot hand held grenades at tanks.

Has Hamas deliberately targeted children, schools, orchards, water infrastructure ?

No. But Israel routinely does.

Hamas has offered to release hostages since day one, in return for a permanent ceasefire....Netanyahu refuses....and this from the Israeli side, the families of hostages.

Posted in: Seinfeld speech at Duke commencement prompts walkout protesting his support for Israel See in context

I saw Seinfeld give an interview in which he spoke of his "Jewish Identity " and of the thousands of years of oppression Jews have endured and how that shaped himself and his "Jewishness "

To that I would say, Jerry, you would have no idea what happened 500 years ago, let alone 2000 years , so how can one appropriate a long past ,probably false, and misrepresented history to affect some eternal victimhood for being Jewish.

It is non sensical.

This is the mythology some, not all, Jews tell themselves to maintain a level of entitlement and righteousness.

The Chinese in Indonesia were subject to mass slaughter in the 1960's but I dont see that actual historical event clouding every part of a Indonesian Chinese person sense of self.

Australia former POW's of the Japanese similarly are not holding deep seated anger informing every aspect of their being.

Nor are the Japanese victims of atomic bombs hateful toward America.

I can see how the Holocaust would maintain a hundred years of hate toward Germany, but no, the actual perpetrators of that calamity are Israels second biggest supplier of weapons.

And Palestinian people, who had zero to do with oppression of Jews, are paying a price for another nations crimes.

I saw the video of extremist Israelis' {mostly young men throwing aid packs of a truck meant for Gaza, and continuing to do so with no interference by Police.

An Israeli woman spoke up about this and was man handled by male Israelis'....she reported NO ARRESTS WERE MADE by Police/Army for her assault or for the behaviour of the crazed mob.

Important to remember the UN ORDERED Israel TO DO MORE to allow the entry of food aid into Gaza.

Here is another example of Israel failing to comply with a straightforward direction by the UN.

A warehouse containing aid from Jordan was also set alight.

No investigations into arson ?

Finally IDF snipers have shot and killed a UN worker travelling in a clearly marked vehicle, as well as wounding another.

Israel has become a rogue state and no apologists can say otherwise.

Denying food meant for starving children....how low can Israel go ?

Palestinians NEVER lived under "Israeli rule "

They lived under MILITARY RULE !!!!with zero rights under the civil law Israeli's lived under.

Checkpoints, arbitrary arrests, restrictions on movement, indefinite military detention where torture was commonplace and ceaseless and relentless attacks by crazed settlers who destroy orchards, water facilities, block access roads and steal or kill livestock....then there's the killings...never investigated by Israel police or IDF.

Mate...get out of the silly Israel can do no wrong bubble and see what the reality is.

Not just me but every UN and International agency on earth is condemning Israel.

Oh yeah....it's anti semitism isnt it.

Back in the bubble then

The USA Government has been putting sanctions on violent settlers in the West Bank which seemed limited to travel bans.

Now these sanctions are ramping up to include banks and others who finance the illegal settlements, placing Israel in the precarious position of potentially alienating its use of US currency in trade and other matters.

{See Guardian Piece today for more details }

Basically Israel is moving to alienate itself from all nations in the world.

Egypt now joining SA in the "Genocide matter " in the ICJ.

Sad,sad, friendless Israel

Just mind numbing attitudes.
