    Default record murders by IDF




    Israel Killing Record Numbers of Palestinian Children


    Israel Killing Record Numbers of Palestinian Children
    by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
    It's no surprise. The Netanyahu and earlier Israeli regimes consider defenseless Palestinian civilians legitimate targets, including women, children, the elderly and infirm.
    It's how all rogue states operate, disdaining rule of law principles, doing whatever they please extrajudicially - Israel and America the world's worst.
    According to Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), cold-blooded Israeli murders of Palestinian children exceed earlier years over the past decade other than when the Jewish state waged preemptive wars of aggression on Gaza.
    According to DCIP accountability program director Ayed Abu Eqtaish, "Israeli forces have operated with near complete impunity for so long that unlawful killings and other flagrant violations of international law have become the norm," adding:
    Self-granted Netanyahu regime "(i)mpunity (and international community indifference toward Palestinian rights) combined with the rise in Israel's use of live ammunition as a method of quelling demonstrators since 2014 means there is no legal mechanism that will halt this bloodshed."
    Palestinian civilians, including children, are murdered by Israeli forces regularly because they're not Jewish, because they're considered nonperson subhumans, because Washington protects Israel from accountability no matter how heinous its high crimes.
    In 1991, Israel ratified the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). It didn't matter. The Jewish state brazenly violates its provisions.
    Article 37 states in part:
    "No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment."
    "No child shall be deprived of his or her liberty unlawfully or arbitrarily."
    "The arrest, detention or imprisonment of a child shall be in conformity with the law and shall be used only as a measure of last resort and for the shortest appropriate period of time."
    "Every child deprived of liberty shall be treated with humanity and respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, and in a manner which takes into account the needs of persons of his or her age."
    "Every child deprived of his or her liberty shall have the right to prompt access to legal and other appropriate assistance, as well as the right to challenge the legality of the deprivation of his or her liberty before a court or other competent, independent and impartial authority, and to a prompt decision on any such action."
    It goes without saying that no child or anyone else shall be deprived of their right to life, that killing extrajudicially is a Nuremberg-level high crime.
    International law is clear. The Rome Statute prohibits crimes against humanity, including murder.
    Fourth Geneva protects civilians in times of war, prohibiting violence in all forms against them.
    Nuremberg Principles prohibit "crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity."
    They include indiscriminate killing and other "inhumane acts committed against any civilian populations, before or during the war."
    Occupied Palestine is a war zone, including besieged Gaza. Yet Israel remains unaccountable for atrocities no just societies would tolerate.
    Since January, Israeli forces murdered at least 35 defenseless Palestinian children threatening no one - more than double total juvenile killings last year.
    Lethal shootings are only legal in self-defense, no other reasons acceptable.
    Israel does what it pleases because nothing was ever done to hold its regimes accountable for high crimes throughout its sordid 70-year history.

    Default Israel's apartheid nation



    Mass Outrage Against Israel's Apartheid Nation-State Law
    by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
    The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) blasted the new law, saying the following:
    It "does not address minorities whatsoever, neither their collective nor individual rights."
    It makes non-Jews second-class citizens, especially Israeli Arabs, constituting 20% of the population.
    "The law omits mention of any commitment to democracy or human rights…The expression 'Jewish and democratic' was completely removed from the law…"
    Majority Knesset hardliners "created a reckless law," harming non-Jews, Arab citizens most of all, along with all sectors of society opposing apartheid rule.
    The Arabic language was downgraded. The law "does not recognize (the) basic right to language" for its Arab citizens.
    It affirms separate and unequal status for Jews and non-Jews. The Jewish character of Israel takes precedence over everything else. Israel's fantasy democracy is more illusory than before.
    Following earlier mass protests, tens of thousands in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square demonstrated on Saturday night - rallying to "Abolish (the) Nation-State Law," calling for "Yes to Equality."
    Despite Israel's ban on publicly displaying Palestinian flags, they were prominently waved. Signs read "Nation-State is apartheid."
    The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee in Israel, along with other Israeli Arab groups, petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the law.
    A near-60 page petition called it racist legislation, contradicting fundamental international law. It states:
    "There is no constitution in the world today containing a clause that determines that the state belongs to one ethnic group or that a given state is exclusive to a certain ethnic group."
    "There is also no single constitution in the world that does not include the right to equality for all its citizens and residents."
    The law's Article 7 outrageously says the state of Israel "is solely for the benefit of Jews." Equal rights for Arabs must be denied "to promote and encourage Jewish settlement."
    Arab citizens are called "the other…(T)he state must...discriminate in the allocation of land, housing, budgets and incentives, and land planning and zoning."
    Addressing demonstrators, Former MK Mohammad Barakeh called for "eras(ing) this abomination and remov(ing) the stain made by Netanyahu and his government called the nation-state law."
    On Sunday, Netanyahu accused demonstrators of "want(ing) to turn Israel into an Israeli-Palestinian state or a state of all its citizens. It is for precisely this we passed the nation-state law."
    Just societies treat all their citizens equally. Ziofascist Israel opposes equality and other fundamental democratic rights.
    The apartheid law defines Israel as "the nation-state of the Jewish people," Hebrew the sole official language.
    The law is Israel's version of Nazi Germany's Nuremberg Laws. Israel is to Palestinians what Hitler's regime was to Jews - in both countries, individuals opposed by ruling authorites treated like subhumans, forced to endure virtually every type indignity, degradation and crime against humanity.
    Palestinians and Israeli Arab citizens are discriminated against in virtually all aspects of their lives.
    The Nation-State law officially made apartheid ruthlessness the law of the land - contravening fundamental international laws, norms and standards.
