Palestinians in the Gaza Strip suffer more death and destruction as Israeli warplanes keep pounding the besieged coastal strip.

A four-story shopping center in southern town of Rafah is the latest target of the Israeli attacks. Palestinian media say the strike left multiple injuries and completely destroyed the building. Hours earlier, two Israeli missiles hit a 12-story apartment tower in central Gaza, leaving 17 people injured. Four children are among the wounded. Earlier on Saturday, five Palestinian children lost their lives when Israeli forces bombed different sites across Gaza. Nearly 90 people have been killed since Israel resumed the airstrikes on Tuesday. Saturday’s attacks pushed the overall death toll to more than 2100. 567 children are among the dead.

August 23 marks his eighth birthday. He is not here anymore. He was killed in cold blood after Israeli F-16 warplane demolished his uncle’s house while he was playing with his cousins there. No prior warning was given to the family to evacuate.
After 22 years of waiting and IVF treatment to finally become parents, Mahmoud was born. He was the only son. And now he left his parents alone mourning his loss. The norm around the world is that children burry their old parents, but in Gaza, parents burry their young children. With eyes full of tears, Mahmoud’s mother told us how one Israeli airstrike was enough to change and destroy their life that was revolved around their only son, Mahmoud. An eight-year old boy was accused of nothing but being a Palestinian living in Gaza. This was enough to get him killed and for an entire house to be demolished over his fragile body.

The History of Resistance – The Eagle of Palestine


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.
