Palestinians are in great danger

  • Israeli soldiers are deliberately killing children, disabled, journalists
  • Israeli ministers are openly calling for mass murder and complete ethnic cleansing
  • Israeli Army religious instructors openly praise Hitler's philosophy and methods

Israeli aircraft, tanks, warships and snipers have killed over 25 Palestinians since Friday in the latest attack since Palestinians voted in a manner that Israel and its allies disapproved of. The Sunday night attacks added pregnant 33-year-old Amani al-Madhoun to another pregnant woman killed with a young child on Saturday.

Fire was returned from the besieged territory by Palestinian resistance factions. Barrages of rockets into Israel killed four Israelis.

Israeli bombing and shelling destroyed entire tall buildings, leaving many families homeless; see 57sec video here.

Israel's policy is to intensify the pain of life for all the people of Gaza until they either leave or accept their inferior status.

For the BBC, all this is never mentioned behind the lie that democratic, European Israel only retaliates against inexplicable Palestinian violence; recent BBC headlies have included

  • "Three dead in Gaza as Israel retaliates after a serious escalation of Palestinian rocket attacks which cause injuries in Israel"
  • "Israel launches air strikes after hundreds of rockets fired from Gaza"
  • "Militants in Gaza fire rockets into Israel, Israel responds with airstrikes"

palestinian fatherThe New York Times was true to form in "reporting" that "Palestinians seized every opportunity to wreak havoc" even while Israel attacked press offices and cultural centres, homes and administration buildings. Clearly no solidarity with Palestinian journalists under bombardment.

The UN's OCHA reports that from March 2018 to March 2019 Israeli snipers injured 29,187 Palestinians in Gaza, including 5,778 children, of whom 445 were girls. The snipers killed 271 people, including 52 children. 2 of them girls.

We don't need to feel helpless in the face of Israeli barbarism - demonstrate against the Israeli State when it promotes itself in Scottish cinemas, theatres, sports grounds. BDS is the best contribution you can make to Palestinian freedom. Palestinians are not asking for charity -they are fighting for freedom and ask for your solidarity.
