China, Russia and Brazil demand an end to the aggression: “Israel” is causing an unparalleled disaster

    Tuesday, October 31, 2023   No comments

On Tuesday, Russia, Brazil, and China condemned the aggression launched by “Israel” on the Gaza Strip, during the UN Security Council meeting.

Russia's representative, Vasily Nebenzia, expressed his astonishment at what happened in Gaza, "the blind killing and displacement of 1.6 million people, the killing of 63 international employees, the management of UNRWA buildings, and the application of a comprehensive siege on the Strip."

He also condemned the prevention of aid entry through the Rifaat border crossing with Egypt, as Israel allowed only 90 trucks to enter, explaining that the population in the Gaza Strip had reached a state of despair, at a time when Israel entered into a ground attack from several fronts.


Nebenzia indicated that "Israel" is "working on a plan to expel the population," considering that "Israel's" position on the United Nations was "defiant and contemptuous."


He added that Washington and "Israel" had a plan other than stopping the fighting, noting that "the tension and raids launched by the United States and "Israel" against Syria's sovereignty should not be ignored, which would spark a conflict that includes the entire region.

The Russian delegate explained that what is currently required is “to stop the fighting and move to a comprehensive solution to the conflict by establishing a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.”

Nebenzia also asked the US representative, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, about her refusal to call for a ceasefire, accusing her of "practicing double standards between Ukraine and Palestine."


For his part, China's representative to the United Nations, Zhang Jun, recalled the General Assembly's decision, noting that "Israel" "turned a deaf ear and continued the ground attack on Gaza," causing an unparalleled humanitarian catastrophe.


Jang explained that the people of Gaza are experiencing an "unparalleled" humanitarian catastrophe, under a siege that has been going on for 16 years, expressing his "deep sympathy" with the people of the Strip, and calling on the parties to stop the fighting and prevent further escalation.


The Chinese representative called on “Israel” to lift the siege on Gaza “so that a greater catastrophe does not occur.”

In turn, Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Vieira considered that the killing of a thousand children in Gaza, a week ago, is “a morally intolerable matter,” considering that the world is “staring at the Council’s inability to do anything to stop these massacres.”


Vieira pointed out that "the justification for the existence of the Security Council is at stake," explaining that the Council must be "saved like humans," which can only be achieved if "politicization is abandoned, as well as morality."


The Brazilian Foreign Minister added that the Council must follow up on calls to stop the fighting and bring in aid, which were called for by both the Secretary-General of the Council and the General Assembly, noting that "the situation is deteriorating by the hour, and there is an urgent need for aid and the release of hostages."


Vieira stressed that the “hostages” cannot be released under bombardment, noting that his country asked the Council to advance the issuance of a resolution requiring the release of “the hostages without delay, and that food, water and medicine must be brought in quickly.”


Vieira considered that the Security Council's record is "very weak" when it comes to the Middle East, as it used the veto 35 times out of 250.


The positions of the countries' delegates and representatives come at a time when the Israeli "army" continues to attack the Gaza Strip, with various weapons, in the wake of the Al-Aqsa Flood operation, on October 7, which caused thousands of martyrs and wounded, and difficult humanitarian conditions inside the Strip.

Israeli Leaders Threaten Civilians Trapped In Gaza: "Leave Now" Because Gaza Will Be Turned "Into Rubble"

     Sunday, October 08, 2023   No comments

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Palestinians to leave Gaza Strip on Saturday and said the army will turn Hamas sites “into rubble.”

“We will turn all the places in which Hamas is based … all the places Hamas is hiding in, acting from into rubble,” Netanyahu said in a televised address.

He called on Palestinians in the area to “leave now.”

Implementing the threats, and signaling their intent to commit war crimes, other Israeli leaders provided more details. Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant: 

"I ordered a complete siege of the Gaza Strip. There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed. We fight against human animals and act accordingly."

Responding to the threat, Gaza factions' leaders said that Tel Aviv will be attacked and asked people there to leave. This is why Netanyahu's use of the words "Leave now" will come back to haunt the Israelis. Because those who can leave will leave, and that will be mostly Israelis, not Palestinians.


Given that Gazans have been under siege and with no place to go, asking them to leave or face death under the rubble is not an option between two things, it is a single option: die under the ruble.

The dramatic events that started on Saturday morning are not completely a surprise. For weeks, Hamas and other factions have been conducting live ammunition drills practicing the very same actions they took on Saturday. The Israeli leaders claimed, then, that the war games were designed to attract outside support and funding and doubted the groups’ ability to carry out attacks outside Gaza. On Saturday, those drills were put in action with deadly precision.

All this marks a new cycle of violence that could have been avoided any time over the past 50 years at least. For nearly 30 years since the Oslo agreement that promoted the two state solutions did not go anywhere. It merely created a Palestinian security apparatus in the West Bank that freed Israeli troops from patrolling Palestinian towns. Meanwhile, Israeli leaders continued the funding of illegal settlements making it impossible for the two state solution to remain viable. In the last decade, Israel has been ruled by increasingly right-wing factions hostile to any deal with the Palestinians. The lack of hope brings despair and desperate people do unimaginable things.


The chinese government seems to see the occupation to be the problem and ending it as the path to a solution. 

The Chinese Foreign Ministry called for the creation of the state of Palestine. The ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning voiced "concerns about the escalation of the conflict" and condemned the "damage to civilians" but said that "the fundamental path out of the conflict lies through the implementation of a two-state solution and the creation of an independent State of Palestine."

Israel Has Killed More Kids in 3 Weeks Than Were Killed in All Global Conflicts Annually Since 2019

    Monday, October 30, 2023   No comments

More children killed in Gaza than in global conflicts annually over past 4 years, Save the Children says

GAZA: 3,195 Children Killed in Three Weeks Surpasses Annual Number of Children Killed in Conflict Zones since 2019

The number of children reported killed in Gaza in just three weeks has surpassed the annual number of children killed across the world's conflict zones since 2019, Save the Children said.

Since October 7, more than 3,257 children have been reported killed, including at least 3,195 in Gaza, 33 in the West Bank, and 29 in Israel, according to the Ministries of Health in Gaza and Israel respectively. The number of children reported killed in just three weeks in Gaza is more than the number killed in armed conflict globally—across more than 20 countries—over the course of a whole year, for the last three years.

Children make up more than 40% of the 7,703 people killed in Gaza, and more than a third of all fatalities across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel. With a further 1,000 children reported missing in Gaza assumed buried under the rubble, the death toll is likely much higher.

On Friday, Israeli forces announced “expanded ground operations” in the Gaza Strip, with Save the Children warning it will bring more deaths, injuries, and distress while calling for an immediate ceasefire.

Keypoints from the President of Turkey, Erdogan, before a crowd organized in support of Gaza

    Saturday, October 28, 2023   No comments

Erdogan is the most successful opportunistic politician who will use every popular issue to plug in his relevance. After weeks of silence, he came to join a large crowd of people waving Turkish flags, invoking Gaza crisis but saying nothing of substance. He seemed more concerned with the optics than with the human cost accrued by people dying. Here are some of the ultimate showman’s statements.


* Unfortunately, in Turkey, there are politicians who claim that just as Netanyahu is a terrorist, so is HAMAS. They don't know what HAMAS is.

* Today, some in Turkey see Gaza as distant from us, and they don't care about what happens there. Gaza was an Ottoman city nearly 100 years ago. For us, it was one of our cities, like Adana and Mardin are today.

* Unfortunately, we were divided and separated by borders, and today they are trying to divide us with various temptations and games.

* Look closely at the statements of Israeli officials, and you will find plans of insult and betrayal, directed at our lands as well.

* I confirm that HAMAS is not a terrorist movement, and we will not be satisfied with the condemnation of what is happening in the Gaza Strip.

* Those who cried about injustice in Ukraine yesterday are today supporting Israel with blood on their hands.

* Israel won't last even three days without the support of Western countries.

* Turkey is preparing to declare Israel a war criminal to the entire world.

* Western officials have become deaf and cannot hear the cries of the casualties in Gaza or the appeals of the UN Secretary-General.

* Israel is committing a massacre in Gaza in the darkness, thinking that the world will not find out.
