#GazaUnderAttack | Knesset approves transfer of $1.1 billion to Israeli military

On several occasions over the past three months, Ya’alon asked for a halt of ground, marine and air military sorties because the ministry’s budget request had not been approved 

The Israeli parliament’s Finance Committee approved the transfer of NIS 3.8 billion ($1.1 billion) to the Israeli Defence Ministry following calls over the past month for raising the defence and security budgets, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported.Palestine Online news website cites a statement issued by Israel’s Finance Ministry on Wednesday, 13 August saying that the additional money allocated to the military’s budget was taken from funds that had been allocated for public and safety services like transportation, water development and distribution, and earthquake preparations.

The news website also reported that the Finance Ministry would immediately transfer NIS 1 billion ($3.3 million) to the Defence Ministry, while the remaining funds would be pumped into the military budget in the coming years.

The Knesset’s Finance Committee approved an increase in Israel’s security and military budgets after having rejected an earlier budget request by Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon several months ago. Haaretz reported that the committee debate was heated, with one MK being forcefully removed, but due to the current Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip, the funds were eventually approved by a margin of three votes.

Israeli radio reportedly broadcast a statement several days ago saying that the Defence Ministry had called for an NIS 8 billion ($2.2 million) raise as compensation for the losses in “Operation Protect Edge”, which was launched on 8 July, as well as NIS 11 billion ($3.1 million) in addition to the ministry’s $15 billion annual budget.

On several occasions over the past three months, Ya’alon asked for a halt of ground, marine and air military sorties because the ministry’s budget request had not been approved.

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.

* 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.
