Israel’s Incremental Genocide in the Gaza Ghetto

Israel’s Incremental Genocide in the Gaza Ghetto

Ever since
June 1967, Israel searched for a way to keep the
territories it occupied that year without
incorporating their indigenous Palestinian
population into its rights-bearing citizenry. All
the while it participated in a “peace process”
charade to cover up or buy time for its unilateral
colonization policies on the ground.



With the
decades, Israel differentiated between areas it
wished to control directly and those it would manage
indirectly, with the aim in the long run of
downsizing the Palestinian population to a minimum
with, among other means, ethnic cleansing and
economic and geographic strangulation.



The
geopolitical location of the West Bank creates the
impression in Israel, at least, that it is possible
to achieve this without anticipating a third
uprising or too much international condemnation.



The Gaza
Strip, due to its unique geopolitical location, did
not lend itself that easily to such a strategy. Ever
since 1994, and even more so when

Ariel Sharon
came to power as prime minister in
the early 2000s, the strategy there was to ghettoize
Gaza and somehow hope that the people there — 1.8
million as of today — would be dropped into eternal
oblivion.



But the
Ghetto proved to be rebellious and unwilling to live
under conditions of strangulation, isolation,
starvation and economic collapse. So resending it to
oblivion necessitates the continuation of genocidal
policies.

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently

endless "war on terrorism," it also has led
directly to what is arguably the most

massive assault on our civil liberties since the
Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information
about what happened that day – and why it happened –
is key to understanding the cou…
