Israeli Campaign Ad Stars War Criminal – The Intercept

a former Israeli Army medic who became a hero to that nation’s far-right by publicly executing a wounded Palestinian suspect in the occupied West Bank in 2016, is the star of a new political advertising campaign for a deputy minister in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

The former soldier, who was convicted of manslaughter based on video evidence of the crime, served just nine months in jail before being released last summer. In a poster and video message published on Facebook this week by the deputy environment minister, Yaron Mazuz, Azaria is seen grinning and shaking the politician’s hand.

Israeli army kills Palestinian nurse in Gaza border protest

 

Najar, a 21-year-old volunteer medic, was shot as she ran toward the fortified border fence, east of the south Gaza city of Khan Younis, in a bid to reach a casualty, a witness said.

Wearing a white uniform,” she raised her hands high in a clear way, but Israeli soldiers fired and she was hit in the chest,” the witness, who requested anonymity, said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman had no immediate comment on Najar’s killing. Israeli officers have previously said that army snipers target only people posing a threat, but that the bullets can sometimes run through them or ricochet, hitting bystanders.

Gaza: Where the memory of 6 million Jews goes to die | The Smirking Chimp

Shame on you, Israel.

These Israeli snipers appear to be deliberately aiming at Palestinians’ elbows and knees. They know that there are very few doctors, hospitals and blood banks left in Gaza. They know that they have just crippled over 4000 Gazans for life. They plan it that way. Creating instant piles of Palestinian corpses just isn’t as much fun.

And yet these same brutal Israeli neo-con villains then have the audacity to tell us that they are committing these vile atrocities in the name of the six million Jews who were murdered by Nazi thugs.

At least 40 unarmed Palestinians — including two journalists — have been shot and killed by Israeli sharpshooters and snipers in the vicinity of the Gaza border fence since March 30, including two journalists. At least 1,500 others were wounded by sniper gunfire, according to the United Nations data from earlier this week.

For Israel, There’s Little Political Cost to Killing Palestinians

All the while, the ongoing blockade and restrictions imposed on Gaza have made conditions more difficult for the Palestinians who live there. “I want to be shot,” one 22-year-old protester told my colleagues on Friday. “I don’t want this life.”(Photo: Adam Helweh/Flickr/CC)

This weekend in Gaza, Palestinians buried their dead after Israeli soldiers killed at least 18 Palestinian protesters and wounded hundreds more on Friday. About 30,000 Palestinians had gathered near the fenced barrier separating the Gaza Strip from Israel, both protesting the stifling blockade on their territory and mourning the dispossession of their ancestral lands at the hands of the Israeli state.

As in many other Palestinian protests that take place in the occupied territories, most protesters were unarmed and nonviolent. Families picnicked in the shadow of the Israeli border and flew Palestinian flags. But like so many other Palestinian protests, this one ended in tears.

Netanyahu Praises this and the work of his 100 snipers & 17 dead over 1,400 wounded

Several videos circulating on social media purport to show unarmed Palestinian protesters being shot in the back or while praying by Israeli snipers.

In one of the videos, a demonstrator – identified by relatives as 19-year-old Abdelfattah Abdelnabi – is shot in the back while running away from the border separating the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Israelis must speak up about the injustices here, and the world must listen | +972 Magazine

The world is not against us — rather, it is at best indifferent to the oppression of Palestinians, and at worst colludes in it, which is why Israelis must inform decent people about what is happening here. I was invited to attend a series of meetings organized by French activists that were held this week. The participants were involved in Palestine solidarity work, some of them with longstanding ties to Palestinian communities. Several visit Israel-Palestine on occasion, and assist however they can from afar. [tmwinpost] And yes, they are ardent supporters of all forms of non-violent struggle, particularly boycott. Every year, at…
