Are we being duped to focus only on Gaza suffering? (my latest post which can also be accessed at https://popular-resistance.blogspot.com/2023/11/are-we-being-duped-to-focus-only-on.html)
Israel’s genocide of Gaza is intentional, planned and ongoing with no sign of slowing down. The contrary, with no water, food and medicine it is accelerating. Israel leaders boast openly that they do not care about what the UN says or what world leaders say. Israeli fascist leaders say they do not care what statements are issued by governments of Muslim and Arab countries. Nor do they care if public pressure causes some western leaders to moderate their language from unconditional support for Israel to show concern for the “humanitarian catastrophe” unfolding in Gaza (without naming the perpetrator). Israel actually can use the humanitarian catastrophe (as if it is an act of God not their agency) as bargaining chips. Israel can offer pauses in the slaughter in exchange for further weapons from Western governments and for release of Israeli prisoners.
Maybe even a temporary ceasefire and fuel to any remaining hospitals in exchange for additional support to continue the genocidal occupation and for impunity from facing tribunals for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Israeli leaders are crystal clear about their crimes and they get their way by genocide and total state terrorism against populations. If you have any doubt, listen to them (see below). They even say openly that if Hizbollah continues its resistance in South Lebanon, then all of Lebanon will pay a devastating price and Beirut will be like Gaza (i.e. totally devastated).
Israeli military spokesmen gave the same threats to cities in the West Bank like Jenin and Tulkarem and even Ramallah. These are not idle threats.
If the world is not willing to to stop Israel from devastating cities in Gaza strip and is even giving it more weapons to commit its genocide there, why would it not also devastate Lebanon or the West Bank? If you get away with one genocide you get away with others. After all International law cannot be enforced in this case. According to Israeli leaders global public opinion and “diplomatic” pressure will not end its carnage. Many human rights advocates are at a loss as to how to end the carnage.
Israel is the only country on earth that did not set any border for itself.
It is also the first colonial power whose base is not a geographic area away from the area it colonized (France was the base for colonizing Algeria). The Zionist base is wherever Zionists occur in positions of power in Western Countries(originally France and England but now the US and ohter countries). The original Zionist plan is setting up an Eretz Yisrael in the area between the Nile of Egypt to the Euphrates. But this is changing where Israel dominion as Netanyahu showed in a map at the UN includes the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf states. But the Zionist plans are far more than about geography. Geography is negotiable if there are guarantees of economic and colonial hegemony. Gaza is needed because of the gas fields there worth hundreds of billions but that is a small part of a wider plan for which 2.3 million people are dispensable.
The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are already colonized economically and are run by easily controlled leaders who will do the US/Israel bidding. Zionist grip on the US system is visible everywhere from Hollywood to mainstream media to Congress that allocates more money to Israel than South America and Africa combined. In many western countries,the Zionist lobby succeeded in even silencing free speech, so asking for freedom in Palestine is persecuted. There is a war on truth.
So what is to be done? First please note that while many media like Al-Jazeera show Palestinian suffering, they do not provide coverage of Israeli/Zionist statements, ideology, or intent. The genocidal statements are rarely seen in either Western but also in Eastern media. This is
important because humanitarian suffering elicits sympathy from those people who care about fellow human beings. But most people and certainly most leaders are willing to ACT only if they see direct impact on them.
Unfortunately, the statements of Zionist leaders and their direct actions including suppression of free speech in supposed “democratic countries” if exposed would be more likely to get results than pleading to save Palestinian children (as important as that is). Thus, we must spend at least as much time in publicizing the Zionist plans and words . Documenting slaughter must be accompanied by documenting the intent and plans for slaughter. We must expose why this is not merely about Palestine but about an evil tribal ideology called Zionism that is not content with Palestine but subverts and hurts people around the world. For example, it is critical to show how Israel is hurting US public interest and destroying the US and even got away with killing US citizens like the sailors of the USS Liberty.
Millions of people are mobilizing. You do make a difference. All individual efforts count. Below are materials you can use and publicize.
Telling the truth is a revolutionary act. The pen can be mightier than the sword sometimes.
Anyway, please do take the time to look over this material and use them extensively:The wild beast of Israeli racism
