Before I delve into this, I affirm Israel’s right to statehood, as an independent, sovereign Jewish state. But not at any cost. Israel’s rights must not extinguish the rights of Palestinians and their right to live in their homeland.

Francesca Albanese, UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories, has concluded that there are “reasonable grounds” to believe that Israel is committing genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.

She said, “Following nearly six months of unrelenting Israeli assault on occupied Gaza, it is my solemn duty to report on the worst of what humanity is capable of, and to present my findings.”

”Specifically, Israel has committed three acts of genocide with the requisite intent: causing severe bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, and imposing measures intended to prevent birth within the group,” the Special Rapporteur stated.

And this is from a People who survived the Holocaust. Unbelievable. Un-conscionable. Un-forgiveable.

Is the Israeli conscience no more? Where is Jewish humanity?

And the world simply looks on, arms akimbo. In 1994, it was Rwanda. Now it is the Palestinians.

The Jewish mantra “NEVER AGAIN” rings hollow in the face of the apartheid they have instituted in Gaza

The Rapporteur said that “the genocide in Gaza is the most extreme stage of a long-standing settler-colonial process of erasure of the native Palestinians.”

She said the “colonial amnesia of the West has condoned Israel’s colonial settler project,” adding that “the world now sees the bitter fruit of the impunity afforded to Israel. This was a tragedy foretold.”

Israel’s impunity is no longer viable. Let’s call a spade a spade: Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving Prime Minister, has blood on his hands. He stands accused of thousands of deaths of Palestinian babies, women and thousands of innocent non-combatants. He is prolonging this war, this human tragedy to save his political career. He faces a multitude of charges for allegedly trying to smear the Israeli justice system. Apartheid and genocide cannot be condoned in a democracy.

Why does the UN and the international community turn a blind eye to the genocide in Gaza and the apartheid unleashed on Palestinians? All this in plain sight since October 7, 2023.

There are now around 700,000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, who live in 300 settlements and outposts, all of which are illegal under international humanitarian law. For the love of God, let Palestinian cries be heard. Their lives are as precious as Israeli lives.

Sometimes settlers are filmed by press crews, masked and sometimes wearing IDF uniforms. Settler violence and State violence have become synonymous. And we all look on. Barbaric aggression continues.

Israel does not have a monopoly on suffering, If they think so they are fooling nobody. The sooner they reach a ceasefire, the better. In spite of the fact they are one of the best fighting machines in the world, they cannot defeat Hamas. IDF atrocities have become the best recruiting tool for Hamas.
