The UN report into Israel's vicious war in Gaza has been published with the UN Secretary General promptly rejecting calls for a further investigation.
Lets face it the sadistic murderous war criminals running Israel will once again get away with this brutal slaughter. As usual Israel's PR machine has managed to press into service the Murdoch media and of course it's all powerful lobby detailed by Mearshimer and Walt whose sole focus is to peddle the lie that the problem is the ferocity of Hamas resistance rather than the illegal military occupation that has given rise to it. What drives these pathologically deranged Israeli politicians to order F16's to massacre innocent civilians then appear surprised if people with some humanity refuse to congratulate those brave pilots or share in the same delusional and criminal mindset.
There are no Hamas tanks, army of occupation, helicopter gun ships, F16's or nuclear weapons for that matter. But there is Hamas "terrorists" and "violence" that Israel has invented so that its own neuroses can be inscribed on the innocent dead civilian Palestinian bodies. In sum, those peddling the Zionist project will not rest until Palestinians die a slow death so that Israel can have its "security" which is just round the corner but never realised.
More generally what makes me sick is Apartheid is alive and kicking according to Mandela & Tutu, not South Africa, but as they rightly point out the cruel brutal colonising state of Israel which has a total disregard for over 65 UN resolutions. Why no debate about Israels' racism and human rights abuses. Despite Israel's PR machine of Neocons who portray the perpetrators as victims, the reality is the zionist state kills civilians, destroys homes, ancient olive groves, uses human shields and roadblocks and withholds electricity and water to civilians. Israel and its apologists refer to "collective punishment" of an innocent and helpless people. That's what makes me sick the deliberate strategy of a state conceived in and dedicated to an increasingly vicious ethnic nationalism.
Naturally, any criticism of Israel leads immediately to Zionists using their ace card the "anti Semite" libel which is harmful not only because it censors debate about Israel's racism and human rights abuses but because it trivializes the ugly history of Jew hatred. Pathetic insects that inflate the meaning of "anti semitism" to include anything politically damaging to Israel is a double edge sword. The problem is definitional inflation like any inflation it cheapens the currency. Its recently happened to Jimmy Carter, and Archbishop Tutu and the authors Mearsheimer & Walt but is wearing a little thin.
The war criminals who lead Israel could have peace for the taking but simply concentrate their efforts on another round of dispossession making the lives of Palestinians unbearable. Israel is a racist state whose obvious and provable intent is to continue to steal Palestinian land, oppress Palestinians, herd them into smaller and smaller enclaves and ultimately hope to drive them into the sea. After all Zionists well before WW2 came thousands of miles to dispossess people who had never done them the slightest harm and whose very existence they contrived to ignore. That is presumably why the commanders who directed the rapes and child killings of Deir Yassin went on to become Prime Ministers of Israel.
Best quote from a former PM of Israel:
"If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country . . . We come from Israel, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that"--
