The goal is ethnic cleansing!

Some supporters of Israel’s extreme violence against the civilians of Gaza can only do so by telling themselves it’s a proportionate response to Hamas violence.

Then there are the honest ones who openly reject proportionality. This is Zvika Fogel, an MK from Ben-Gvir’s party.

These are Zvika Fogel's words, an MK from Ben-Gvir's party.

Anyone who wants to harm me, I will harm him back. And as far as I’m concerned, the concept of proportionality must cease to exist.

So I will tell you something that is very unpleasant to say:
If it is one Israeli mother crying, or a thousand Palestinian mothers crying
Then a thousand Palestinian mothers will cry.

Interviewer: That’s a racist policy for a government to have!

We are too merciful. It’s time for us to stop being so.
It has nothing to do with racism.

On the right: Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israel’s Minister of National Security. Until recently, this picture of Goldstein hung on his living room wall.

I’m seeing a lot of the “the people of Gaza can be targeted because they voted for Hamas.” I recall seeing this argument before… used by Osama bin Laden in his justification for targeting American civilians. See below in his 2002 message to Americans.


Thus the American people have chosen, consented to, and affirmed their support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians, the occupation and usurpation of their land, and its continuous killing, torture, punishment, and expulsion of the Palestinians. The American people have the ability and choice to refuse the policies of their government, and even to change it if they want…

Not good enough @jeremycorbyn.
this is not about a different political approach but the necessity and the demand to STOP THE GENOCIDE right now!

reminder: The Crime of #Genocide and The Crime of #Apartheid are classified as #CrimesAgainstHumanity and it’s your duty to oppose it.

1.1 million Palestinians were told to flee northern Gaza today. Most stayed in their homes, but these families who tried to flee were deliberately bombed on the “safe route”.

Horrific scenes as cars, truck and ambulances were all bombed. 70+ killed.

Calling it the “Israel-Hamas war” creates the false impression that this is a war that is directed exclusively at Hamas when it’s really an ethnic purge that’s directed at all Palestinians in Gaza. The child body count alone makes it clear that this isn’t a war against Hamas.

The last message from Palestine to the nation… before their internet was cut off (Arabic).

There is deep concern among EU institutions and capitals that by appearing to sanction Israel’s expected invasion of Gaza, von der Leyen has squandered the EU’s credibility - including on Ukraine.
She had no mandate to visit Israel from the member states.

Facebook and Instagram took down my explainer breaking down the history of Gaza as a concentration camp because it shows “people or organizations deemed as dangerous”…

This is anti-Palestinisn racism. Luckily it’s still up on X. Watch the video yourself and see.

One thing is certain, Fb & Instagram **are not taking down Israeli incitement** of violence against Palestinians and videos by Israeli officials posting actual videos of war crimes of their bombs targeting residential homes and children.

Keyboard warriors finally have something useful to do.  Every time you comment on a pro-Zionist tweet, post, article, or video, with pro-Palestinian statements; you are helping to undo the controlled narrative in the public sphere.  Do not think that is insignificant.

The narrative is only controlled because it matters.

Sir. To be honest I was just feeling outrageous over Muslims for just posting tweets in solidarity with Palestinians and doing nothing on the ground to help them. Reading your post changed my view to an extent. But we still need physical support for Palestinians, not just words.

Make no mistake, the false confirmation from Biden was intentional - it was to reinforce the lie that shocked the world.

That “lie” is needed to continue Israel’s genocide of Palestinians.

The “clarification” seen here is also intentional, they absolve themselves and also only a fraction of people will see it, the ones who care about it, the rest of the world has already bought the lie.

This deception is a strategy in their deprave war.

Clarification from the White House regarding Biden’s remarks
“I’ve been doing this a long time,” Biden said at the White House. “I never really thought that I would see, have confirmed pictures of terrorists beheading children.”

A White House spokesperson later clarified that U.S. officials and the president have not seen pictures or confirmed such reports independently. The president based his comments about the alleged atrocities on the claims from Netanyahu’s spokesman and media reports from Israel, according to the White House.

In response to questions from The Post, an Israel Defense Forces spokesperson declined to comment on the state of victims’ bodies.
They later said they cannot verify the claim.

It is worth pointing out, as it is always overlooked…at the time the Zionists started their whole program, **Jews were living in Palestine**, they were allowed to live in Palestine, the Muslims did not expel them.  Anyone of them who wanted to live there, could have BEEN living there all along.

Even if their distant ancestors were kicked out, those ancestors’ children or grand children or any generation of them during the Muslim empire could have returned at any time. But in fact, the European colonial zionists persecuted even the Jews living already in Palestine, and the Jews living in Palestine often sided with the Arabs against them.

There was no beheading of a single baby, let alone 40. There was no massacre of 260 Israelis at a rave. There has been no mass rape of Israeli women or the targeting of elderly. All the above are lies. Disinformation to dehumanise Palestinians and justify a genocide in Gaza.…
