Jew State: Isreal Engaged in Genocide of Palestinians

Israel is Killing Palestinian Civilians With Impunity: Amnesty International
Human rights group calls for the international community to halt arms shipments to Israel

- Sarah Lazare, staff writer

Relatives of Samir Awad mourn his death at a hospital in Ramallah, to where his body was taken after the shooting. (Photo: Issam Rimawi/Zuma Press/Corbis)Israeli forces are killing Palestinian civilians in the West Bank — including children — with "callous disregard for human life," enjoying near impunity for likely war crimes, and should be immediately cut off from arms shipments by the international community, declares a damning report released by Amnesty International on Thursday.

"This is a hugely significant development," says Mike Coogan of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation in an interview with Common Dreams. "This report is unequivocal. It clearly points to the perpetrator of crimes — the Israeli military."
Entitled Trigger-Happy: Israel’s Use of Excessive Force in the West Bank, the 87-page report documents mounting violence and human rights violations due to Israeli use of "unnecessary, arbitrary and brutal force," as summarized in an Amnesty statement. The study traces the chilling trail of death and injury this leaves behind.

In the past three years, at least 261 Palestinians in the West Bank — 67 of them children — have been seriously injured by live gunshots fired by Israeli forces. In this same time frame, over 8,000 Palestinians in the West Bank — 1,500 of them children — have been wounded by other weapons wielded by Israeli forces in the West Bank, including rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas, with some dying from their wounds.

The report highlights the murder of 22 Palestinian civilians in the West Bank last year, four of whom were children, and 14 of whom were killed at protests. In some of these cases, Amnesty found evidence of "willful killings, which would amount to war crimes," according to the summary.

Sixteen-year-old school boy Samir Awad, from Bodrus, numbers among the dead. He was shot by Israeli forces in January 2013 while protesting Israel’s separation barrier that slices through his village. Bullets hit the back of his head, leg, and shoulder as attempted to flee an ambush. Multiple eye-witnesses testify that he and other young protesters did not pose a danger to the Israeli forces who fired.
“Out of nowhere many soldiers jumped out and ambushed Samir," said 16-year-old Malik Murar, a friend of Samir and eye-witness to his killing, in an interview with Amnesty. They shot him first in the leg, yet he managed to run away towards the village. But how far can an injured child run? Twenty, maybe 30, meters? They could have easily arrested him, especially when he was injured, but instead they shot him in the back with live ammunition... To me this is premeditated murder."
One year later, "authorities have failed to ensure any accountability for his death," the report states.

Samir's murder is one of many that may constitute extrajudicial execution — a war crime under international law — the report reveals.

Others have also been shot in the back, and protests against expanding settlements, the separation wall that annexes Palestinian land, evictions, checkpoints, and restriction of movement are often met with deadly force, the report reveals. These killings are not transparently investigated, leading to an over-all permissive climate for arbitrary violence.

“The frequency and persistence of arbitrary and abusive force against peaceful protesters in the West Bank by Israeli soldiers and police officers – and the impunity enjoyed by perpetrators – suggests that it is carried out as a matter of policy," said Philip Luther, Middle East and North Africa Director at Amnesty.
The report urges an immediate halt to use of deadly force by Israeli forces and calls for the international community — including the United States — to halt all arms shipments.

"Amnesty’s courageous call for cutting all transfer of weapons to Israel is a very significant first step towards a full embargo," said Omar Barghouti, Palestinian campaigner for boycott, divestment, and sanction of Israel. "Israel should not get away with what Amnesty rightly characterizes as 'war crimes' and 'willful killings' of Palestinian civilians."

The Israeli Army swiftly released a statement and tweet dismissing the report as demonstrating a "complete lack of understanding as to operational challenges the IDF faces." Yet the statements did not directly answer to the specific killings highlighted by Amnesty, including that of Samir.
Coogan said in response, "There is absolutely no excuse for Israel's continued and flagrant misuse of weapons against civilians. Entire families have been affected by this. There is a very clear pattern, including clear video evidence."
He added, "It's about time that Israel is held accountable for this."

I've always wondered how folks that have been oppressed can justify oppressing others. You would think that they would never want to see anyone treated like that ever again. Having been there themselves.

I don't. Whether it's a part of culture or instinctive drive, I suspect we see the action as the enemy as well as the person. So adopting the action gives us control over the action, and inflicting it on the "enemy" gives us power over them.

It's all in the mind, of course, but when panic and fear set in we are truly animalistic in nature.

Don't believe everything you read! Dodgy Biased people believe anything that fits their agenda. Amnesty International is well known to be biased against Israel. Folks who are anti-Israel or antisemitic love it when an "international" group (most people are unaware of Amnesty's bias) condemns Israel for defending itself. ....If you studied the conflict, you'd know that any other country (in Israel's position) would have killed, exponentially, more Palestinian terrorists, as well as civilians. The truth is, Israel exercises unbelievable restraint, so not to injure or kill civilian, non-combatants. ....Did anyone mention that this "Amnesty International" report was anonymous? If the Palestinian terrorists had their way, Israel and it's entire population would be wiped out.

Being a Jew has nothing to do with having sacred and respectful behaviors. It tends to be more of a parasitical and capitalistic dog eat dog mentality; say psychopaths for territory, wealth, power, and control. At least that is what it seems like to me...

What is truly unfortunate is you pushing this load of absolute crap on so many levels.
Israel has not always been surrounded because Israel didn't even officially exist less than 100 years ago. And even then the Jews and Muslims lived together in those Muslim countries. They weren't trying to kill all the Jews, for if they wanted to, it would've been quite easy since the Jews were the minority. It wasn't until the extreme Zionists came about trying to revise history claiming rights to a land that they've both shared since the beginning of their existence. Neither side can claim innocence in the conflict so please don't act like Israel is innocent, it is quite insulting to people's intelligence, and just further confirms you have an agenda to push such BS.

Facts are facts. It is you that is insulting the intelligence of anyone reading this thread. I NEVER said that civilian Palestinians (or civilians in surrounding countries) were the problem. But, as soon as the "Zionists" created Israel, MANY Muslim terrorists and hateful "surrounding" governments were killing innocent Israeli civilians. To this day, Israeli civilians ARE the target. I stand by what I said, earlier, that the IDF has shown a lot of restraint. You know they have the military might to "go whole hog" every time there is an attack or "suicide" bomb. They don't. If they had, the death toll for "civilians" would be exponentially larger. Yes, Muslims and Jews lived harmoniously, for a great long time. They could (and in many cases, DO) today, if not for those who benefit from instability and conflict. ....You, obviously have a bias, here. Is it laziness (not studying the "conflict")? I know it is easy to beLIEve other people's rhetoric, at face value. An anti-Semite's lies (sometimes, carefully crafted), regurgitated by other haters of Jews or Israel repeated (over and over) does not make it true. [Hitler said, "The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed."] ....I hope lack of research and understanding is the reason for your "confusion". Unfortunately, hate is the only other option. So, which one is it? (Study and get away from the deception. Knowledge is the key to understanding.) ....I have, absolutely, NO agenda, except possibly, contributing toward peace and understanding. The "conspiracy", here, is the constant "divide and conquer" of lies and deception. Smoke and mirrors, to perpetuate hate. Is that the way? Barf "Revisionists" and other liars can not change the facts.

RE: Jew State: Isreal Engaged in Genocide of Palestinians
Amnesty International Report Reflects Lack of Expertise and Methodology

NGO Monitor
February 26, 2014

Report based on faulty data calls for sanctions, coincides with annual BDS campaign

Jerusalem – A report scheduled to be released by Amnesty International tomorrow, Trigger-happy: Israel's use of excessive force in the West Bank, falsely and maliciously accuses Israel of "callous disregard for human life," according to analysis by NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based research organization. The report also repeats Amnesty's calls for political warfare against Israel, in the form of an arms embargo.

"Amnesty International accusations are reckless, blatantly biased, and reflect the lack of a credible research fact-finding methodology," said Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor. "Amnesty lacks the expertise and credibility to analyze or assign blame for deaths in the context of violent confrontations in the West Bank. As in the past, the allegations in this report repeat unverifiable Palestinian ’testimony.'"

Indeed, in a February 10 interview with Al Jazeera, Amnesty International's Secretary General Salil Shetty acknowledged that "we are not an expert (sic) on military matters. So we don't want to, kind of, pontificate on issues we don't really understand."

In its report, Amnesty makes numerous non-specific claims without any supporting evidence, such as "Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers did not appear to be posing a direct and immediate threat to life" and the use of "arbitrary" force. In contrast, other monitoring groups such as B'Tselem acknowledge that the majority of Palestinian casualties occurred during combat or violent clashes and confrontations with Israeli security personnel. Amnesty's removal of this essential context and abuse of the term "civilian" further highlights the lack of credibility. Similarly, in 2009, Amnesty played a central role in the discredited Goldstone report on the Gaza conflict, as well as in a number of other allegations targeting Israel.

Likewise, NGO Monitor has shown that Amnesty's "research" team on Israel comprises two individuals with backgrounds in anti-Israel political activism, not military and legal expertise.

In the current report, no definitions or comparative data is provided to support Amnesty's politicized allegations that Israeli forces are "trigger happy" and "reckless." In fact, a review of police conduct around the world reveals that Israeli police and military conduct is far more restrained, considering the constant state of armed conflict and the sheer number of lethal situations that justify the use of deadly force, including violent riots and terror attacks. For example, according to FBI statistics, in 2008-12, more than 2,000 people were killed by U.S. police forces. One day of protests last week in Ukraine resulted in 39 to 100 people killed by law enforcement, at least 13 people were killed by police in Venezuela, and four killed and dozens injured in Thailand. Egyptian forces killed more than 500 protestors in a single day in August 2013.

"Once again, Amnesty displays its disproportionate and ideological obsession with Israel," Prof. Steinberg continued. "The report's publication coincides with the antisemitic BDS movement's annual week of anti-Israel activities, using demonization to promote boycotts and sanctions. Amnesty International should be ashamed of its role in exploiting the moral foundations of universal human rights to wage political warfare against Israel."

Amnesty proves its anti-Israel bias yet again

Tomorrow, Amnesty International is releasing a new anti-Israel report.

Before it is even released, we already know how ridiculously biased against Israel it will be – because of the title.

It is called "Trigger-happy: Israel’s use of excessive force in the West Bank."

Let's look at some numbers.

Last year, according to B’Tselem and the UN, the IDF killed 27 Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank. Compared to 2012, when 8 were killed in 2012, that is a 237% increase. It can be assumed that Amnesty will trumpet that number as evidence of the "trigger-happy" IDF.

What the report won't calculate is the percentage increase of Israeli deaths at the hand of West Bank Palestinian Arabs during the year. You see, in 2012, there were no Israelis killed by Arabs from the WB, but in 2013 there were five.

That's not an increase of 237% or 1000% or a million percent. That is an increase of infinity percent.

If Amnesty is going to compare percentages between two years, they should do it for both sides of the equation. But you know they won't, just like the UN didn't.

Now, let's return to the title.

Of the 27 killed, according to B'Tselem, the vast majority were either known terrorists, were involved in throwing stones or Molotov cocktails at soldiers, or were resisting arrest raids. Maybe 5 or 6 were in the wrong place at the wrong time during riots.

That isn't exactly wonderful, but it is a far cry from "trigger happy." One killed every two weeks when there are several violent riots every week, and over 75% of those killed being involved in attacking the soldiers first or being terrorists, is hardly a bad record and far from indicating the IDF being "trigger happy."

In contrast, in Egypt earlier this year, in a single day, over 54 protesters were killed. since July there have been nearly 1500 killed by Egyptian security forces. They are not called "trigger happy" by Amnesty.

In the Ukraine, more than 70 protesters were killed last week. Amnesty did not call Kiev's police "trigger happy."

Venezuela killed 11 protesters in the past couple of weeks. Nothing about them being called "trigger happy" by Amnesty.

Amnesty has never titled any other of its reports with the phrase "trigger happy."

All the others countries, while perhaps acting excessively, aren't as anxious to kill as those bloodthirsty, trigger-happy Zionist Jews, if reading Amnesty's report titles indicates anything.

We already knew that Amnesty was hopelessly biased. I've seen it first hand.

This is just another in the long line of examples, and yet another reason to prove that at least when it comes to Israel, Amnesty is utterly untrustworthy and hateful.

Proof of bias in Amnesty's "Trigger-Happy" report

As I mentioned yesterday, Amnesty released a ridiculously biased report against Israel this morning. Now that the report is released, we can confirm Amnesty's bias.

Here is their commentary on one incident, in August in Qalandiya, where the IDF fired live ammunition at stone throwers:

Quote:Although the army stated that Palestinians were posing a danger to Israeli soldiers’ lives when the latter opened fire, the fact that one soldier only was lightly injured in the incident inevitably raises the question whether the Israeli soldiers who used live ammunition gunfire against the Palestinians protesters acted proportionately or resorted to the use of lethal force when this was not justified.

Here is video of the incident. Notice the size of the stones being thrown, including those stockpiled on the roofs, as well as some stones coming from much higher roofs that are out of the view of the camera:

Nah, nothing life-threatening about that!

According to Amnesty, the IDF must wait until a soldier is killed before using lethal force. I guess there is a concept in international law that I am unaware of that you may not defend yourself until you are physically injured first.

Or does that only apply to a single party?

A quick comparison:

This report on Israel killing (by Amnesty's count) 22 civilians in 2013 is 87 pages long. It goes into detail about every single one of those deaths, humanizing the victims and interviewing multiple friends of each, al lin an attempt to paint Israel in the worst light possible.

Amnesty's report about Egyptian repression since July 2013, where 1400 people were killed, is only 49 pages long. It only provides details on a few specific cases, and most of those aren't even for people being killed but for other violations of human rights.

In the report about Israel, Amnesty serves as judge and jury in its "conclusions and recommendations:"

Quote:Israeli soldiers have repeatedly committed serious human rights and humanitarian law violations, including unlawful killings, in response to Palestinian opposition and protests in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. The cases documented in this report represent only a minority of the cases that have occurred over recent years and which follow a general pattern, in which Israeli forces use excessive, often lethal, force against Palestinians who pose no threat to their lives or the lives of others. Soldiers are permitted to do so effectively with impunity – inasmuch as the official system established to investigate alleged human rights violations or other abuses by Israeli soldiers is neither independent nor impartial. This creates a situation of absolute absence of justice and the growing environment of impunity which the Israeli army and police enjoy

But for Egypt, Amnesty makes no such determinations. It does not flatly accuse Egyptian forces of human rights violations. It is merely "concerned" about the 1400 deaths, sexual abuse cases and destruction of basic freedoms:

Quote:Amnesty International is concerned that the Egyptian authorities are utilizing all branches of the state apparatus to trample on human rights and quash dissent. Armed with repressive legislation, including the latest assembly law; unaccountable security forces ready to implement it against political opponents; and a complacent judicial system that punishes critics while allowing perpetrators of human rights violations to walk free – the Egyptian authorities have the necessary tools to take the country further on the path of repression. Unless, the authorities change course and comply with commitments to respect human rights and the rule of law, the future of Egypt looks bleak and the hopes of the “25 January Revolution” have little chance of becoming a reality.

The anti-Israel bias is blatant.

RE: Jew State: Isreal Engaged in Genocide of Palestinians
Quote:Crimes against Humanity. Israel’s “Own Words”: “We Must Expel Arabs…We Struck Civilians Because They Deserved It”

By Steve Chovanec
Global Research, August 05, 2014
http://www.globalresearch.ca/crimes-against-humanity-israels-own-words-we-must-expel-arabs-we-struck-civilians-they-deserved-it/5394936

“We must expel Arabs and take their place.”– David Ben-Gurion, October 5 1937, Journal of Palestine Studies, Vol. 41, No. 2 (Winter 2012), University of California Press, pp. 245-250.*

-
1980’s

For 30 years, from the War of Independence until today [1981], we [Israel] have been fighting against a population that lives in villages and cities.(1) In South Lebanon we struck the civilian population consciously, because they deserved it… the Israeli Army has always struck civilian populations, purposely and consciously … the Army… has never distinguished civilian [from military] targets … [but] purposely attacked civilian targets when Israeli settlements had not been struck.(2)

There were retaliatory actions against civilian Arab populations; the air force operated against them; the damage was directed against such structures as the canal, bridges and transport.(3) The picture that emerges is of an Israel wantonly inflicting every possible measure of death and anguish on civilian populations in a mood reminiscent of regimes which neither Mr. (Prime Minister) Begin nor I would dare to mention by name.(4) There was a rational prospect, ultimately fulfilled, that afflicted populations [i.e., innocent civilians deliberately bombed] would exert pressure for the cessation of hostilities.(5)

We don’t have a solution, and you [Palestinians] will continue living like dogs, and whoever wants to go will go, and will see how this procedure will work out.(23)

2000’s

[After Israel won the Six Day War in June 1967] We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one ‑ progressive, liberal ‑ in Israel; and the other ‑ cruel, injurious ‑ in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture.

That oppressive regime exists to this day [2002.](6)

Israel is an occupying power that for 40 years has been oppressing an indigenous people, which is entitled to a sovereign and independent existence while living in peace with us. We should remember that we too used very violent terror against foreign rule because we wanted our own state. And the list of victims of terror is quite long and extensive.

We do limit ourselves to denying the [Palestinian] people human rights. We not onlyrob of them of their freedom, land and water. We apply collective punishment to millions of people and even, in revenge‑driven frenzy, destroy the electricity supply for one and half million civilians. Let them “sit in the darkness” and“starve.”

Through its army, the government of Israel practices a brutal form of Apartheidin the territory it occupies. Its army has turned every Palestinian village and town into a fenced‑in, or blocked‑in, detention camp. All this is done in order to keep an eye on the population’s movements and to make its life difficult. Israel even imposes a total curfew whenever the settlers, who have illegally usurped the Palestinians’ land, celebrate their holidays or conduct their parades.(7)

The main thing is, first and foremost, to hit them hard. Not just one hit… but many painful [hits], so that the price will be unbearable. The price is not unbearable, now. A total assault on the Palestinian Authority. To bring them to a state of panic that everything is collapsing … fear that everything will collapse… this is what we’ll bring them to…(16)

The troops will be preceded by a ferocious pillar of fire. After the shooting, the warnings, anyone remaining in the area, in one of the most densely populated urban sites in the world is either a terrorist or knows the price to pay.(8)

The commanders and soldiers who were sent to Gaza need to know that they are safe from various tribunals.(21)

The first time we went in, we were given orders to target our machine guns at every suspicious point that could be used to fire upon us. And we shot at anything that moved. The civilians in the area had already been told that we were coming in, so I don’t feel bad for anyone hurt there. If they remained there, they must have been Hamas.(22)

I want aggressiveness – if there’s someone suspicious on the upper floor of a house,we’ll shell it. If we have suspicions about a house, we’ll take it down… There will be no hesitation… Nobody will deliberate – let the mistakes be over their lives, not ours.(20)

The commanders and soldiers who were sent to Gaza need to know that they are safe from various tribunals.(21)

What happened in the Dahiye Quarter of Beirut in 2006, will happen in every village from which shots are fired on Israel. We will use disproportionate force against it and we will cause immense damage and destruction. From our point of view these are not civilian villages but military bases. This is not a recommendation, this is the plan, and it has already been authorized.(9)

With an outbreak of hostilities, the IDF will need to act immediately, decisively, and with force that is disproportionate to the enemy’s actions and the threat it poses. Such a response aims at inflicting damage and meting out punishment to an extent that will demand long and expensive reconstruction processes. The strike must be carried out as quickly as possible, and must prioritize damaging assets over seeking out each and every launcher. Punishment must be aimed at decision makers and the power elite… attacks should both aim at Hezbollah’s military capabilities and should target economic interests and the centers of civilian power that support the organization.

This approach is applicable to the Gaza Strip as well.(10)

I’m telling them to stop it. We are stronger; there will be more blood there. We have power, enormous power; we can do things that are devastating.(11)

Our response will be disproportionate. We won’t go back to the rules that the terrorist organisations tried to dictate.(12)

Such a war will lead to the elimination of the Lebanese military, the destruction of the national infrastructure, and intense suffering among the population. There will be no recurrence of the situation where Beirut residents (not including the Dahiye quarter) go to the beach and cafes while Haifa residents sit in bomb shelters. Serious damage to the Republic of Lebanon, the destruction of homes and infrastructure, and the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people are consequences that can influence Hezbollah’s behavior more than anything else.(13)

This approach is applicable to the Gaza Strip as well.(10)

The people who go into a house despite a warning do not have to be taken into account in terms of injury to civilians, because they are voluntary human shields. From the legal point of view, I do not have to show consideration for them. In the case of people who return to their home in order to protect it, they are taking part in the fighting.(14)

Israel demonstrated real hooliganism during the course of the recent operation [Cast Lead], which I demanded.(15)

2010’s

We must blow Gaza back to the Middle Ages destroying all the infrastructure including roads & water.(17)

Who is the enemy? The Palestinian people…

They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise,more little snakes will be raised there.(18)

Attack the entire ‘target bank’ throughout Gaza with the IDF’s maximum force (and not a tiny fraction of it) with all the conventional means at its disposal. All the military and infrastructural targets will be attacked with no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’. It is enough that we are hitting exact targets and that we gave them advance warning.

Parallel to the above, a total siege on Gaza. Nothing will enter the area…

After the IDF completes the “softening” of the targets with its fire-power, the IDF willconquer the entire Gaza, using all the means necessary to minimize any harm to our soldiers, with no other considerations.

Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever… Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel.
