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.

Nir Rosen: Gaza: Israel, Hamas and the logic of colonial power | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk: "I have spent most of the Bush administration's tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush's final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime."

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.


“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’…

Muslimedia.com: "Beyond these assumptions lies an even more disturbing thought pattern that has failed to grasp the true nature of the political system in Pakistan. Just because Pakistan was created in the name of Islam and its rulers have Muslim names, no-one should assume that they abide by any Islamic principles. After all, Imam Husain (ra) and his companions were not martyred by mushriks; those who carried out the massacre at Karbala were people with Muslim names who probably offered salah both before and after perpetrating the crime. There is no reason to believe that they did not also fast in the month of Ramadan and fulfil other basic Islamic obligations. The present-day Muslim rulers are much more removed from Islam, despite their Islamic credentials or pretensions, because they are subservient to the kuffar and dependant on them to stay in power."
