God’s Chosen People and the “Moral” West

God’s Chosen People and the “Moral” West

More than 2 million Palestinian people have now been without running water, electricity, food, medicine, for 10 days.

After instituting the blockade of Gaza, Israel  dropped 4,000 tons of bombs on Gaza in a 5 day period (Oct 7 – 12).  Nine more days have passed with continued heavy bombing; if continued at the same rate, Israel has dropped more than 10,000 tons of bombs – 2 million pounds of high-explosive — on the people of Gaza. 

Israel told 1.1 million Palestinians that they had 24 hours to leave northern Gaza or else be bombed. The JDAM bombs being dropped on Gaza were supplied to Israel by the US. Many thousands have been killed since the bombing began. 52% of the Palestinians in Gaza are under 18 years of age; a huge percentage of those Palestinians being killed and wounded are children.

This is blatant ethnic cleansing and it is receiving the full support of the United States. In the UN Security Council, the US has twice vetoed Resolutions calling for a ceasefire in Gaza; the vote on the second attempt was 14 to 1, with the US being the only no vote with their veto.  The US does not want a ceasefire, it wants war, and thus has sent Carrier Battle Groups, squadrons of A-10 Warthogs, and thousands of Marines in preparation to back up an Israeli ground assault into Gaza.

The US is now complicit in the massive war crime being committed in Gaza by Israel. All the endless US speeches about freedom and democracy ring hollow in the face of this atrocity.  And these crimes are likely to get much worse once Israel sends hundreds of thousands of troops into Gaza. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMyGigtZ2j4
