Israeli Squatters fire with Impunity at Palestinian civilians as Israeli Army watches

May 22nd, 2012 Comments off

The slow civil war in the Palestinian West Bank, occupied illegally by Israel, between the hundreds of thousands of Israeli squatters planted there by the Israeli government and the local people who are being displaced, is a daily affair. Armed Israeli squatters encroach on Palestinian water and land daily. In recent days, remarkably, video has begun surfacing of settler shootings of Palestinians, with the complicity of the Israeli army, which typically stands by and watches the slaughter.

Aljazeera reports:

Meanwhile, Israel has been repackaging goods produced by the squatters in the Palestinian West Bank as ‘made in Israel.’ South Africa and Denmark have decided to forbid this practice, raising howls of rage in Tel Aviv.

When South Africans accuse you of Apartheid practices, you have to admit they know whereof they speak.

Israeli soldiers murder Palestinian civilians carrying white flags!

August 13th, 2009 Comments off

In McClatchy’s, here

” Israeli soldiers battling Hamas militants last winter in Gaza opened fire on at least seven groups of Palestinian civilians who were carrying white flags, killing five women, four children and two men as they used white flags to try to escape the battle zone.

The report raises new questions about the actions of Israeli soldiers during the military offensive. A United Nations investigation into possible war crimes continues. McClatchy documented in January one of the instances that Thursday’s report outlines….

The Israeli military did not address the specific cases, but stated that carrying a white flag does not always shield someone from attack……. and in cases of suspicion that a person holding a white flag is endangering security forces, they are authorized to take necessary precautionary steps…

“At worst,” the group says, “the soldiers deliberately shot at persons known to be civilians.”

………the Israeli military killed 1,400 Palestinians during the conflict. Most of them, according to research by the various groups, were women, children and men who weren’t directly involved in the fighting…”
