Israel security forces may have committed war crimes, should face justice for Gaza killings: UN

 

“…war crimes and crimes against humanity in killing 189 Palestinians and wounding more than 6,100 at weekly protests in Gaza last year…”

 

UN Council: Israel Intentionally Shot Children and Journalists in Gaza

The commiission found that 35 children had been killed, some from direct weapons fire. The commission also noted one case involving a disabled person in a wheelchair and direct fire at journalists who claimed that they were clearly identified as press.

Syria threatens to ‘strike Tel Aviv airport’ unless UNSC acts against Israel’s impunity

“Or is it required to draw the attention of the war-makers in this Council by exercising our legitimate right to defend ourself and respond to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Civil Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv Airport?
–Syrian UN Ambassador

 

PS.

Imagine if the Syrians threatened Tel Aviv airport but then bombed the shit out of occupying Israeli troops in the Golan Heights, retaking the land that is supposed to be part of Syria? The Israelis are pretty sharp and probably have thought of that option.

And paying them salaries.

IDF chief admits Israel supplied Syrian rebels with weapons

Foreign Policy magazine reported in September that Israel supplied weapons and gave money to at least 12 rebel groups holed up in southern Syria. The arrangement reportedly included Israeli officials also giving $75-per-person monthly allowances to rebel fighters, in addition to the funds their leaders received to procure weapons on the black market

Eight Celebs that Helped Raise $60M for the IDF Right Before It Launched an Attack on Gaza

The Hollywood minor celebrities giving money to Israel’s genocidal military.

 

Ashton Kutcher | A superstar who rose to fame from the hit TV series That 70s Show and now peddles cameras, Ashton Kutcher proudly attended November’s Friends of the IDF event.

Andy Garcia | Andy Garcia has a long history of supporting reactionary forces in his home country of Cuba, where his family of business owners fled after the beginning of the revolution and failed Bay of Pigs operation. Today, Garcia supports Israel’s imperialist military-industrial complex occupying Palestine.

Fran Drescher | American icon and “activist” Fran Drescher can be spotted in pictures from the event rocking a peace sign. Gaza, however, experiences anything but peace.

David Foster | Prominent Canadian singer David Foster proudly attended the event in support of Israeli occupation.

Gerard Butler | In a twist of fate, Gerard Butler’s Malibu home was destroyed by the California wildfires this week. Quite ironic considering that Butler supports the forced removal of Palestinians from their homes and subsequent destruction.

Pharrell Williams | Pharrell Williams provided entertainment for the event. His hit song “Happy” added a disturbing tone to a gala celebrating 70 years of brutal Israeli military occupation and oppression.

Ziggy Marley | Ziggy Marley, son of the late reggae icon Bob Marley, proudly attended the gala, which raised a staggering $60M to support causes relating to the IDF.

Katharine McPhee | The American singer and actress, who rose to fame thanks to her participation on American Idol and her role in the House Bunny, attended the FIDF gala.

‘Everything is a target’: Gaza residents decry Israeli strikes

It is with a heavy heart I have to call out Wonder Woman star for her pro-Israel, pro-IDF propagandizing.

Israeli actress’s pro-IDF stance causes controversy

“I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens,” she wrote. “Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children…We shall overcome!!! Shabbat Shalom! #weareright #freegazafromhamas #stopterror #coexistance #loveidf”

The IDF are the main terrorist force in the region and kill most of the innocent people. Israel’s ongoing land theft is the motive, and their crimes are genocide and apartheid. Israel has been the aggressor since the 1940s and the Nakba, which stole a country from 700,000 Palestinians.

Boycott, Divest, Sanction
