  1. “They endorse the false claim that Hamas’ attack was an act of terrorism which warranted Israel’s subsequent invasion of Gaza.”
    Please elaborate. Not a genocide, but surely terrorism. Is this not the mirror image of the Israeli (Golda) claim that after the Shoah “we” can do anything we want? So the Occupation justifies beheading infants?

    1. No Israeli babies were beheaded on 10/7, one Israeli baby died from gunfire. Thousands of Palestinian babies have been dismembered by Israeli bombing since then. Shouldn’t you check the actual facts of reality before you open your pie hole to comment publicly? The Occupation justifies armed resistance. Here’s a suggestion: read Israeli historian Ilan Pappe’s book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, or any of his books, or search for him on YouTube.

      1. [comment deleted: No four-letter words here. Even in responding to an insult. Especially not toward someone who offered you useful advice.]

        1. How is he lying that is literally true according to Israelis themselves, there was no beheading of any infant but one was killed (in total) and another toddler was also killed.

      2. 1,000+ were killed by the terrorist group Hamas. I have no idea where you live, but surely not next door to deranged killers, such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

    2. @ AlanH:

      the Occupation justifies beheading infants?

      First, let’s be accurate, which you aren’t. No babies were beheaded. No pregnant women’s abdomens were ripped open. No Holocaust survivors with numbers tattooed on their arms were murdered. No babies were burned in ovens. None. But none of these, including the false claim you highlighted, are true. They are propaganda designed to install outrage and satisfy an urge for vengeance.

      surely terrorism.

      I might agree with you if you agreed that Gaza is engaged in state terrorism in Gaza. You can’t have 2 separate standards of terrorism. 25,000 dead, 70% women and children: that’s terrorism. That’s genocide.

  2. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) is a United Nations court of law dealing with war crimes that took place during the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990’s. Established by the UNSC in 1993.

    The ICTY convicted persons for war crimes and “genocide” … later the ICJ made a decision war crimes in another Yugoslav case were not considered genocide.

    International Tribunals
    Article 41 of the United Nations Charter gives the Security Council the authority to use a variety of measures to enforce its decisions. The Council regularly creates subsidiary organs to support or implement these measures. These organs have included international tribunals which have tried people responsible for serious crimes under international humanitarian law or in cases where the Government has requested the assistance of the Council in investigating and prosecuting cases.

  3. ICC is “rigged” due to funding issues and threats / implementation of sanctions on prosecutors by the United States … the Jewish State of Israel is more direct / blunt by death threats to defenders of the Palestinian cause at the ICC in The Hague.

    ISRAEL-PALESTINE: Al-Haq human rights lawyer based in The Hague receives death threats, as attacks against the organisation escalate | 4 March 2016 |

    PM Mark Rutte with a strong pro-Israel bias, follow through with a career as NATO SG, cut the funding of a number of Palestinian human rights NGOs in January 2022. Month he functioned as caretaker PM of Rutte III.

  4. This Israeli propaganda is really astonishing. Always they are the victims. Even in case of badly planed and performed operations.

    IOF was preparing the exploding of a row of houses in Gaza and then Hamas attacked at the “operation” guarding tank with a RPG and caused the mined building to explode . >=21 Israeli soldiers were killed. The header in Jerusalem Post is “Hamas causes buildings to collapse – 21 IDF soldiers dead, several injured”.

    When Israel destroys a university or hospital in Gaza, it is considered by them an extremely clever operation, because there could have be Hamas people under it. Now when Hamas “destroyed” buildings with full of Israeli soldiers, it seems to be less morally justified. When Israelis destroy they use their own bombs and military to install the explosives. When Hamas made the houses to explode, Hamas used Israeli military workforce to install the explosive material and the material was produced and paid by USA. That is really dishonest by Hamas to hijack the hard work of Israelis and US gifts to mankind’s most moral army.
