A United Nations agency, in effort to halt extreme human rights violations, called on Israel Monday to halt the massacre of Gazan civilians, referring to the international humanitarian law violation as "tyranny." As the United States endorses Israel's genocide of Palestinians, according to a White House spokesperson last week, a doctor on Monday, who is treating wounded Gazan cicvilians, asked where the U.S. government decency is.
UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestine refugees, called on Israel “to end attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure which are contrary to international law,” a rare recognition by a UN agency that Israel is deliberately targeting civilians.
The call was in tweets about the dire situation as toll from Israel’s relentless bombardment of Gaza, that began one week ago, reached 174 persons killed -- with eighty percent of them civilians and half of those, women and children, -- and over 1000 civilians wounded.
"I urgently call on the Israeli Security Forces to put an end to attacks against, or endangering, civilians and civilian infrastructure which are contrary to international humanitarian law," said Pierre Krahenbuhl, commissioner general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, or UNRWA.
There are 17,000 Palestinian refugees sheltering in 20 schools in Gaza, UNRWA said. Israeli airstrikes have damaged 47 Gazan buildings, including clinics, schools and warehouses.
Israel's military says it uses various methods, including phone calls and leaflets, to warn civilians of impending strikes. UNRWA, however, called on Israel to exercise maximum restraint and precautions to avoid more casualties, as desperate doctors working in Gaza have also pleaded.
"Clearly at this stage not enough is being done in that regard," Krahenbuhl said. 'This is tyranny.'
The Zionist experiment has failed, as detailed by David Whitbeck this week. Racism, the ultimate opposite of equality and thus, human rights, is succeeding.
Don't send bandages or more doctors
Half of the dead and wounded from Israel's present bombing campaign of Gaza are women and children, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry and supported by Gaza age demographics.
Health facilities in Gaza are struggling to care for over 1,100 people injured in Israeli's round-the-clock bombardments.
A doctor treating wounded Gazas, Dr. Gilbert says hospitals are operating without electricity, water and proper medical supplies, as reported by Democracy Now!
"As a medical doctor, my appeal is don’t send bandages, don’t send syringes, don’t send medical teams. The most important medical thing you can do now is to force Israel to stop the bombing and lift the siege of Gaza."
Gilbert recently recently submitted a report to the UN on the state of the Gaza health sector in 2014.
"Where is the decency in the U.S. government allowing Israel this impunity to punish the whole civilian population in Gaza?" Gilbert asks.
Fraudulent Isreali Claims Gain Support
Israel is fraudulently reporting Gazans are attacking it and its Iron Dome is operational, according to a Tel Aviv human rights whistle blower’s report Sunday.
As Israelis gather on a hilltop overlooking the massacre of Gazans, clapping and cheering as bombs explode over trapped Palestinians, American fundamentalists seemingly do the same via the Internet, according to comments left under Deborah Dupré's articles.
The Zionist Story, a documentary now on YouTube and on this page, explains the conflict, as film distributor RontheDVDGuy said this weekend, urging the public to view it.
While over one thousand Gazans are wounded and reported deaths from the concerted Israeli attack reached a reported 166, not one Israeli has been killed. Nevertheless, the Israeli government is fraudulently claiming that Hamas is launching rockets that are hitting Israeli populated areas, according to human rights investigators. The above photograph was taken in Tel Aviv, where Israeli's go about normal life, such as enjoying summer beach leisure, in contrast to what their and other nation's news agencies are reporting. The propaganda campaign says the Israeli's are living in a panicky fear of rockets from Gaza, a hoax, according to human rights investigators such as Dr. Joseph Zernick in an interview by Deborah Dupré on Sunday.
0-14 years: 44.7% (male 343,988/female 325,856)
15-64 years: 52.7% (male 403,855/female 386,681)
65 years and over: 2.7% (male 16,196/female 23,626) (2008 est.) (http://bobipasquale.wordpress.com/)
An American doctor working with a medical team in Gaza has written an account of the bombing, indicating the killings are random in nature.
”The drones and jet fighters are in the sky and you cannot anticipate what will happen in next minute,” Dr. Mona El-Farra writes about the masscre of Gazans “Are they going to target a car behind you or in front of you? Will you be caught in the blast? Will others will be dying right that minute somewhere else? Will others will be forced to leave their home in 5 minutes only to be bombed 2 minutes later?”
El-Farra further described the atrocities: “The shelling is continuous, crazy and everywhere. Warships fire missiles against the beach in Gaza City. Rafah town is under severe missile shelling, 10 people in Rafah were killed when their home was levelled to the ground by an American-made F16.”
In an exclusive interview with Deborah Dupré on Sunday, Dr. Joseph Zernick, an Israeli in Tel Aviv, said the IDF also developed a new system of “Knock on the Roof.The IDF first drops small explosives to let people know that within the next few minutes, their homes are going to be bombed, according to Zernick. All Gazan homes are within the Israeli target zone.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has concurred with Zernick about Israel’s untruth about Hamas rocket attacks. In an interview with Charlie Rose, Erdogan said it was impossible for Hamas to engage in an “arms race” with Israel, because all entrances to the territory were controlled by the Israeli Army.
A Danish journalist caused an uproar this weekend when he posted the image below on Twitter, showing Israelis sitting in chairs on a hilltop 2 kilometers from Gaza, cheering and clapping as they watched the bombs explode.
Israel’s renewed massacre of Palestinians in Gaza, after failed peace talks, is further proof that the Zionist experiment has failed and the only reasonable way forward is to recognize equal rights of all people in the region, writes John V. Whitbeck for Consortium News this weekend.
“[I]n the aftermath of the Holocaust, which was a wholly European abomination, European governments – as well as those of the United States, Canada and Australia – shamefully brushed aside Arab pleas to treat the resettlement of displaced Jews as a duty and obligation for the whole world,” Whitbeck says.
“Western nations refused to relax their immigration restrictions, thereby forcing most of the Jewish refugees to seek to build new lives in Palestine, even though many would have preferred to settle elsewhere.”
The video above, The Zionist Story, explains the root of today's atrocities involving Israel and Palestinians.
This Middle East conflict is a human rights issue, violating the essence of human rights: equality of all people, the opposite of racism expressed, espoused and fostered by the many leaving comments, including those on Before It’s News (BIN) pages. (As examples, see: Israeli Massacring Gazans In The Dark: Human Rights Defender’s Account Of What US Tax Dollar’s Doing. The More Israel Strikes Gaza, The More Popular Hamas Is)
Then again, are those comments really by ordinary people wanting to express hate? Not according to Twitter user We the people, who sent the following message to Dupré on Tuesday:
"@DeborahDupre GOV SCHILLS they are on a roll now censoring and lying...we know better don't worry"
