    Default US displays its arrogance in Israel

    US Jerusalem Embassy Shows Contempt for Palestinians
    by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
    Trump's move to the international city was an act of political state terror - contemptuous of Palestinian rights.
    On Monday, US and Israeli officials, along with invited guests, celebrated the embassy's opening in temporary facilities - ignoring the mass slaughter of peaceful Gazan protesters throughout the day.
    "What a glorious day for Israel," Netanyahu roared, adding: "We are in Jerusalem, and we are here to stay" - ignoring his culpability for bloody Monday in Gaza.
    From Washington, Secretary of State Pompeo "celebrate(d) the opening of the United States Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem…recogniz(ing) Jerusalem as Israel's capital."
    He pretended to support a "lasting and comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinians the US and Jewish state abhor and reject.
    From Washington Trump tweeted "US embassy opening in Jerusalem…A great day for Israel!" - one that will forever live in infamy along with bloody Monday in Gaza.
    While criticizing Israeli violence against Gazans, Western media falsely accused Hamas of stoking it.
    The NYT criticized Israeli use of live fire on Gazans, while shamefully saying "Israel has every right to defend its borders, including the boundary with Gaza," unthreatened by Palestinians or anyone else, adding:
    "Gazans are undermining their own cause by resorting to violence, rather than keeping their protests strictly peaceful" - a bald-faced lie.
    The neocon CIA house organ Washington Post falsely said Gazan "protesters were urged by organizers to breach the fence to enter Israel" - another bald-faced lie.
    Gazans protested peacefully against intolerable blockade conditions, the world community doing nothing to help relieve their suffering.
    Some in their ranks tried displaying Palestinian flags on the border fence, not breach it. They oppose its oppression - virtual imprisonment suffocating them.
    Israeli military intelligence-connected DEBKAfile (DF) disgracefully accused Hamas of "orchestrat(ing) the deadliest day of Palestinian violence in Gaza since 2014" - ignoring Israeli Nuremberg-level high crimes against humanity.
    DF turned truth on its head, suggesting Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, and/or Hamas may launch rockets on Israel in response to bloody Monday, despicably adding:
    "Hamas will not relent on its attempts to flatten the Gaza-Israel border for a major invasion of Palestinians bent on terror."
    Palestinians throughout the Territories are braced for Nakba Day Israeli state terror already begun against them - while the world community yawns and does nothing to relieve their suffering.

    Israeli High Crimes Against Humanity

    Israeli High Crimes Against Humanity
    by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
    Longstanding Israeli brutality against Palestinians constitutes what the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) calls "crimes against humanity."
    They include murder, extermination, enslavement, forcible deportations, imprisonment or deprivation of freedoms in violation of international law, torture, rape and related offenses, unjustifiable persecution, forced disappearances, apartheid, and/or other inhumane acts, causing great suffering, bodily injury or serious trauma.

    Israel is guilty on all of the above counts, bloody Monday in Gaza the latest example of its ruthlessness - a Ziofascist gangster state masquerading as democratic.
    Monday's horrendous toll in Gaza included 59 Palestinian men, women and children murdered in cold blood (including an 8-month-old baby from toxic tear gas inhalation), another 2,700 injured, scores seriously, countless numbers permanently disabled - for the "crime" of protesting peacefully against US-supported Israeli viciousness, causing a grave humanitarian crisis under virtual concentration camp prison conditions.
    Israel and Washington despicably blamed Gazans for high crimes committed against them. An IDF spokesman accused Hamas of sending terror cells to breach the border fence to kidnap Israeli soldiers - a bald-faced lie.
    No one directed Gazans to do anything. They came out voluntarily en masse, protesting peacefully against Israeli viciousness.

    On Monday and on Great March of Return Friday protests since March 30, no Israeli soldiers or civilians were harmed. No Palestinian attacks against Israeli forces occurred, no riots, as falsely claimed.
    Palestinian Center for Human Rights' fieldworkers explained no Gazans were armed with guns or other weapons.
    The PCHR issued a Monday statement, condemning "Israeli use excessive lethal force against the civilian demonstrators along the eastern and northern borders of the Gaza Strip as they continued to fire heavily live bullets, tear gas canisters and artillery shells, inflecting many civilian casualties" - 12 medical personnel and 8 journalists among them.

    IDF General Ronen Manelis contemptibly claimed "(w)e are protecting our home," outrageously blaming Hamas for Israeli high crimes, threatening air attacks and possible cross-border incursions if protests continue.
    Israel bears full responsibility for bloody Monday, bloody Fridays preceding it, along with 11 years of illegally blockading Gaza - ruthless high crimes against humanity, as well as three preemptive wars of aggression on the Strip since December 2008.
    On Monday, Washington blocked a Security Council statement, calling for a transparent probe into violence along the Israeli/Gaza border.
    South Africa and Turkey responded to Monday's massacre by recalling their ambassadors to Israel for consultations.

    The international community failed to hold the Netanyahu regime responsible for mass murder.
    Pro-Western UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was "profoundly alarmed and concerned by the sharp escalation of violence and the number of Palestinians killed and injured in the Gaza protests" - disgracefully calling for restraint on both sides, showing "profound" indifference to Palestinian suffering.
    Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah disgracefully blamed Hamas for Monday's mass slaughter - refusing to demand Israel show restraint in response to peaceful Palestinian protests.

    EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini failed to condemn Israeli mass murder, saying only "Israel must respect the right to peaceful protest and the principle of proportionality in the use of force" - showing indifference to long-suffering Palestinians, notably Gazans.
    UK PM Theresa May was no different, merely saying "(w)e are concerned by the reports of violence and loss of life in Gaza."
    Germany's Foreign Ministry failed to condemn Monday's mass slaughter, saying only it was "shocked and deeply concerned," disgracefully adding:
    "Israel has the right to defend itself and to secure the fence against violent incursion." There was none nor earlier.
    Russia's Sergey Lavrov failed to condemn Israeli violence, saying "(w)e expressed common concern over the situation in the Palestinian territories, in particular, in the Gaza Strip," adding:
    "We reiterated commitment to the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly, to the principles of the Arab Peace Initiative."
    China's Xinhua news agency failed to condemn Israel mass slaughter in a statement, saying "Palestinians clashed with Israeli troops near the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, on May 14, 2018."
    "A daylong of violent confrontations between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers in eastern Gaza Strip close to the border with Israel left at least 55 Palestinians killed and 2,771 injured, said medical sources."
    Iran responded responsibly, cabinet spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht saying the following:
    "Certainly the awake conscience of the world is monitoring the crimes of the Zionist regime, a regime which has claims while speaking but in practice pays no respect to the minimum of human rights."
    "(T)he Islamic Republic of Iran expects the international community and especially the United Nations Security Council to be proportionately responsive to" to Israeli high crimes against defenseless Palestinians.

    May 15 marks the 70th Nakba Day anniversary, an ongoing catastrophe, gravely harming millions of Palestinians at the hands of a ruthless occupier.
    Israeli violence continued on Tuesday, early in the day scattered in Occupied Palestinian communities, expected to intensify later in the day.
    Bloody Tuesday may follow bloody Monday. One or more follow-up reports will cover developments as they unfold.
