#GazaUnderAttack | Israel Rejects Kerry Ceasefire Proposal, Agrees to 12-hour “Humanitarian” Pause

  Friday July 25, 2014 23:07 by Chris Carlson – 1 of International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group

Israel has rejected a Gaza ceasefire proposal recently outlined by US Secretary of State John Kerry, according to Israeli public television. However, Haaretz now reports that a 12-hour “humanitarian” ceasefire has been negotiated.

“The security cabinet has unanimously rejected the ceasefire proposal of Kerry, as it stands,” Channel 1 said, according to Ma’an News Agency. It was added that ministers have left it open to discussion.

Kerry met with Egypt’s foreign minister and UN chief Ban Ki-moon, today, with the aim of securing a ceasefire which would end the Israeli that has now entered its 18th day, and has killed more than 800 Palestinians (names currently unconfirmed) and 38 Israelis, 35 of whom were soldiers.

The Kerry proposal reportedly included an initial truce that would be followed by negotiations on a final deal by delegations from all the parties, according to Ma’an.

PM Netanyahu’s government demanded that the army be allowed to continue destroying tunnels used by the Palestinian resistance to carry out operations inside Israel.

Hamas previously rejected the initial proposal, demanding a full settlement before it stopped shooting. However, mediation efforts have reportedly gained momentum over recent days.

Haaretz, who recently reported Israeli cabinet and Likud members as vehemently opposing a cease-fire, states that all signs indicate Netanyahu is looking for a truce and has agreed to a 12-hour humanitarian ceasefire, according to Kerry.

John Kerry said that he would speak to reporters later today.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

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.
