Obama gave Netanyahu the green light to attack Gaza Strip

Two Palestinian teenagers have been injured in a gun attack by Israeli soldiers in the besieged Gaza Strip.

PRESSTV March 13, 2012

Israeli soldiers opened fire on a group of Palestinian mourners in Gaza City on Tuesday and injured two teenagers.

The group was holding a funeral for two Palestinians killed in an Israeli airstrike on Gaza late on Monday.

At least 25 Palestinians have been killed and dozens of others wounded in Israeli airstrikes since March 9.

Press TV interviewed Hani al-Basous, a professor at the Islamic University of Gaza, to further talk over the issue.

What follows is a transcript of the interview.

Press TV: Do you see a connection between Netanyahu’s recent visit to the US and this escalation in attacks on Gaza? If so, do you believe Netanyahu has gotten a green light of sorts from the US to escalate tensions?

Basous: Yes, I think so that the Israeli administration led by Netanyahu has taken the green light from the United States administration which was given by Obama to Netanyahu directly, given him the green light to attack the Palestinian people to kill as many people as they can.

I think the United States is convicted by what the Israeli army is doing in the Gaza Strip which has been killing people. This morning and also for the last two hours, some attacks on the Gaza Strip are continued by the Israeli military forces. I think the Israeli connection between what the Israeli army is doing in the Gaza Strip and the meeting which was in the United States a few days ago between Obama and Netanyahu.

I think the Israeli army feels that they have no responsibility and the international community will not proceed against them and its case. This is why I think the Israeli army is continuing killing people in the Gaza Strip. The attacks have been for the past three days led by the machines and by the airstrikes against the Gaza Strip and up to this minute.

I think the situation is still tense and I expect there will be continuous escalation within the next few hours and the next few days.

Press TV: The international community has largely remained silent on both the siege of Gaza, as well as regular attacks that Israel carries out on the enclave. How do the people of Gaza cope with this international silence?

Basous: I think the people of Gaza are so frustrated at the international community and this community did not take any stand to support the Palestinian people up to this minute.

I think even the United States administration was supporting the Israeli side and they undermine the freedom and the rights of the Palestinian people. The international community has done nothing.

The people of Gaza have been living on the constant siege and attacks by the Israeli side for the past 5 years. These types of escalations and waves of escalations every few days, every few weeks against the people of Gaza and meanwhile, we are watching that the international community that has been silent and did not take any stand, did not take any step to stop the Israeli escalation against Gaza.

I think the international community, if it believes in peace, democracy and prosperity; they have to take step to stop the Israeli escalation. The people of the Gaza Strip are so weak and sensitive. The people of the Gaza Strip have no means for basic living.

For the past few weeks, we have had no electricity, no fuel and even the medicine. We have shortage in medicine and commodities and on the top of this; the Israeli machines have been launching many strikes against the people of the Gaza Strip.

People here in Gaza start to question the international community and its own position at this minute and we have witnessed that even the international human rights organizations and the United Nations have not taken any steps to support the Palestinian people in which that we believe at this time that any step should be taken now to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people with help so much and we still have some hope that the Islamic nations, the Arab states and Egypt would intervene to stop such Israeli escalation on the Gaza Strip.

Otherwise, the Israeli machines and the Israeli warplanes would continue their killing of the innocent Palestinian people in Gaza.

Israel is not looking for Peace



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

For an overview of All Israeli Massacres Palestinians go here

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
