Criminals shouldn't be allowed to
PIC, October 22, 2009
In its rabid efforts to whitewash the Goldstone report,
Israel is likely to carry out another disingenuous probe into
its genocidal onslaught against the Gaza Strip nearly ten months
The report, compiled by South African judge Richard
Goldstone, himself a Jew, accused Israel of committing war
crimes and crimes against humanity, including the deliberate
targeting of innocent civilians.
As many as 1400
Palestinians, mostly non-combatants including more than 330
children, were killed during the 22-day campaign which some
historians and intellectuals compared to the allied saturation
bombing of the German city of Dresden at the close of the Second
Israel has already conducted a number of
“investigations” into the Gaza blitzkrieg which exonerated the
Israeli army of any wrongdoing.
everyone familiar with patterns of Israeli behavior realizes
that investigations by Israel into crimes committed by Israel
didn’t have an iota of credibility.
In the final
analysis, criminals, especially war criminals, are unlikely to
indict themselves by admitting guilt.
Hence, it is a
foregone conclusion that any new probe by Israel of its
pornographic crimes in Gaza would be a repetition of past
An inquiry by the Israeli
army into the Gaza crimes would be very
much like a probe by the Gestapo into crimes perpetrated
by the Wehrmacht or the SS.
Moreover, an inquiry by the Israeli army, or the
Israeli justice system, into the Gaza crimes would be very much
like a probe by the Gestapo into crimes perpetrated by the
Wehrmacht or SS forces.
The analogy is justified to a
great extent. After all, the entire Israeli political and
military class consists of nefarious war criminals and Nazi-like
racists who advocate genocide and mass murder.
it is very difficult for any Israeli Jew to reach a high
position in either the military or political hierarchies if he
doesn’t have his hands fully stained with Palestinian blood.
This explains the morbid infatuation of the bulk of the
Israeli Jewish public with Israeli war criminals. The more these
war criminals excel in blood-letting, the more respect and
admiration they receive from society.
Israel elected Ariel Sharon, the certified war criminal twice as
The “hero” of many genocidal massacres,
such as the 1982- Sabra and Shatilla carnage, was often given
the esteemed epithet of “Melich Yisrael
” or “King of
In 1998, Ehud Barak, the current Israeli
defense minister who oversaw the genocidal campaign against the
Gaza Strip, sought during his election campaign to impress
voters by giving a graphic description of how he assassinated
three Palestinian leaders in Beirut several years earlier.
In short, we are talking about a breed of war criminals and
murderous thugs who really differ very little from Nazi leaders
and commanders. After all, both practiced the “no-holds-barred
doctrine.” The Nazis implemented that doctrine in Europe, and
the Zionists in Palestine and Lebanon .
Apart from that,
there is an entire history of Zionist whitewashing of Israeli
crimes which shows that Israel itself is a huge crime against
Israeli probe into the Kfar Qassem massacre in the mid
1950s blamed the victims for “violating the curfew.”
When the massacre of Dir Yasin was carried out, an
initial Israeli police report claimed that “an Arab was
injured.” Similarly, an Israeli probe into the Kfar Qassem
massacre in the mid 1950s blamed the victims for “violating the
This pattern of blaming the victims continues
to this day. A few weeks ago, an Israeli court acquitted Jewish
terrorist settlers who ganged up on elderly Palestinian peasants
and shepherds in the southern Hebron hills, beating them
savagely, using clubs and other objects.
perpetrators, who had been caught on camera attacking the
helpless Palestinians, were exonerated of any wrong doing.
Well, perhaps the Jewish judge is insisting that all
Palestinians ought to have special cameras that see through the
masks worn by Jewish settlers when attacking their Palestinian
There is no doubt that Israel has been
embarrassed by the Goldstone report. This explains the
perplexity of Israeli leaders’ and spokespersons’ behavior.
This week, Israeli Prime Minister made two remarks which
underscored this pattern of psychotic behavior.
he demanded that the world stop relying on and buying oil from
Muslim countries, saying that western dependence on oil was
encouraging “terror.” Well, one would have to be a psychiatrist
to analyze the mental sickness of a leader who can’t bring
himself to see reality as it is.
Second, Netanyahu reportedly has authorized an
inter-ministerial committee to press the international community
to amend the laws of war, conceivably in order to allow the
Israeli army to commit genocide with impunity.
“if the Americans and Russians and Chinese can commit
war crimes with impunity, why can’t Israel do the
One Israeli writer argued that “if the Americans and
Russians and Chinese can commit war crimes with impunity, why
can’t Israel do the same.”
In other words, what Israeli
leaders are effectively saying is that the peoples of the world
ought to recognize “Jewish Nazism” as a legitimate fact of life.
What else would explain the offensive demands of amending the
laws of war to suit Israel’s criminal behavior?
means that it is only a matter of time before another Israeli
official, a minister, or army general, or even a Prime Minister,
will argue that since Nazi Germany carried out a holocaust
against Jews, Jews are perfectly justified in carrying out a
holocaust against the Palestinians.!
In another related
feat reflecting Israeli frustration over the Goldstone report,
the Israeli government is now studying the possibility of suing
Hamas for “terror and war crimes” against Israel.
it seems that the depravity and brutal ugliness of Zionist
leaders have no limits. True, Hamas, like any other national
liberation movement, is not faultless. However, whatever Hamas
and other Palestinian factions have done in the context of their
legitimate resistance against the Nazi-like Israeli occupation
ought to be considered in the context of decades of harsh
repression meted out by Israel to the Palestinian people.
After all, Israel stole Palestine from its rightful owners,
demolished their homes, destroyed their farms, murdered untold
thousands of civilians in numerous grisly massacres, and
expelled the bulk of the Palestinians from their ancestral
homeland to the four corners of the world.
I know that
Israeli criminality against the Palestinian people don’t always
justify certain acts of violence and terror by the victims.
However, there is no doubt that terror, repression and
oppression, which transcends reality, always makes violence
inevitable. In brief, those to whom evil is done do evil in
Hence, it is morally axiomatic that violence
carried out by people defending themselves, their country and
their honor and dignity against an overwhelming onslaught by
foreign invaders shouldn’t be equated with the violence and
terror of their tormentors and gravediggers.
victim’s resistance, even if it involves violence,
shouldn’t be placed on the same moral footing with
the violence and aggression of the attacker.
Indeed, if a foreign colonialist occupation is an act
of rape, and it undoubtedly is, then a rape victim’s
resistance, even if it involves violence, shouldn’t be placed on
the same moral footing with the violence and aggression of the
