No Nice Wars ~ by Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD


By Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD | PNN English | Aug 8, 2012

An attack on an Egyptian army post in northern Sinai left 15 soldiers dead. The attack was denounced by all Palestinian resistance forces including mainstream ones (Fatah, PFLP, DFLP, popular resistance committees, Hamas) and even marginal Jihadi forces (Islamic Jihad).

I was very disappointed to see a few Palestinians try to use the incident to score points against other Palestinian factions. But to most Palestinians, it was clear from its pattern and timing that this was another Israeli false flag operation stretching back to the Lavon affair in the 1950s when Israeli agents planted bombs in Egypt against Western interests to sabotage relations between those countries and Egypt. An attempt to incite Egyptians against others (Palestinians or Iranians) must be exposed and thwarted especially when there is an ongoing existential struggle.

Avraham Burg, ex-speaker of the Israeli Knesset wrote an article titled “Israel’s Fading Democracy” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/opinion/sunday/israels-fading-democracy.html?pagewanted=all

It is an interesting read but I disagree with his notion that Israel has moved from democracy to right wing fanaticism. I believe it is a movement from low grade camouflaged fascism to high grade open fascism. Already 7 million of us are refugees or displaced people thanks to this regime of racism. This happened for decades and continues today (e.g. see this about Israel refusing cases by stateless Palestinians under its occupation http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/new-regulation-may-bar-migrants-palestinians-from-filing-lawsuits-in-israeli-courts.premium-1.456170 or this about Fishermen in Gaza http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C05UhR9qtiA)

And the future looks just as deadly as we watch the mayhem created by the Western countries under the Israel lobby’s thumb. We are told we can only choose from two options: secular dictators affiliated with Israel/USA imperialism, or Islamist dictators affiliated with Israel/USA imperialism (the latter maybe harder to dislodge since few are willing to tackle dishonest men wrapping themselves in the garb of religous piety)! This is a rigged game whose outcome either way would work for the game makers.

The commander of Israeli army 91st Division, Brigadier-General Hertzi Halevy threatened even more war crimes for anyone who dares objects to the game: “Lebanon will sustain greater damage than that done during the second Lebanon war*…The response will need to be sharper, harder, and in some ways very violent. After the Goldstone Report**, people in the international community and in Israel thought that battle in a densely populated area could be carried out in a nicer way. It cannot be nice. Without the use of great force, we will find it difficult to achieve our aim, and the enemy should also know that. ”

The “second Lebanon war” was a war by the Israeli military on the civilians of Lebanon. Dozens of villages were destroyed. It is ironic since another IDF commander stated recently: We fired more than a million cluster bombs in Lebanon: “What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs,” the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war” http://www.haaretz.com/news/idf-commander-we-fired-more-than-a-million-cluster-bombs-in-lebanon-1.197099

As for the “The Goldstone report”, it tried to accommodate Zionism by condemning home-made rockets fired by the resistance forces from Gaza towards the Palestinian land occupied and ethnically cleansed since 1948. But the report also cited the Israeli killing of over 1400 Palestinians (mostly civilians, including nearly 400 children). The International community refused to act even as solid evidence was provided that war crimes and crimes against humanity were conducted during this “operation”. Even Israeli soldiers admitted to the brutal kinds of actions they were ordered to do http://www.breakingthesilence.org.il/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Operation_Cast_Lead_Gaza_2009_Eng.pdf

Roger Waters and BDS: Moral Courage and Unwavering Commitment to Human Rights

“Where governments refuse to act, people must, with whatever peaceful means are at their disposal. For me this means declaring an intention to stand in solidarity, not only with the people of Palestine but also with the many thousands of Israelis who disagree with their government’s policies, by joining the campaign of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel.” – Roger Waters

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.

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.
