A recent survey shows that a majority of Israelis believe the Tel Aviv regime did not manage to achieve victory in its latest military aggression against the blockaded Gaza Strip.

In a new poll conducted by Israel’s Haaretz newspaper on Wednesday, about 54 percent of Israelis think the regime failed to establish a clear victory in more than 50 days of fatal assaults on Gazans.

The poll results run counter to claims by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the Tel Aviv regime achieved a great military and political success over Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in the new war on the coastal enclave.

Netanyahu has come under sharp criticism by many Israeli officials, including members of his own coalition, after reaching a ceasefire deal with the Palestinian resistance groups on August 26.

The Israeli premier’s allies and the regime’s media have expressed deep disappointment over his leadership after the truce agreement with the Palestinians.

Critics say the conflict in Gaza has taken an economic toll on Israel while dozens of Israeli soldiers were also killed.

The Israeli military unleashed aerial attacks on Gaza in early July and later expanded its new military campaign with a ground invasion into the Palestinian strip.

More than 2,130 Palestinians, including around 570 children, lost their lives in the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip. Some 11,000 other people were also wounded.

Tel Aviv also said 68 Israeli soldiers had died in the war, but Hamas put the number at more than 150.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?


Right to Resist

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.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
