1st August 2014 | International Solidarity Movement | Gaza, Occupied Palestine

This morning a group of over 70 people, mostly women and children carrying foreign passports, planned to take advantage of the ceasefire to leave Gaza and enter Egypt. Israel began bombing Rafah and the Egyptian personnel closed the Egyptian side of the border, leaving them trapped at the crossing, as the bombs fall around them. The Red Cross is not being allowed to reach them due to the bombing in the area.

Their nationalities include German, Norwegian, Bulgarian, and Egyptian.

Call the Egyptian Embassy in your country.

Call the German, Norwegian, Bulgarian foreign office and political representatives to demand that the Egyptian government opens the crossing and allows civilians to take refuge.

Use the hashtag #EndComplicity to ask the Egyptian government to let these families cross the border @egyptgovportal @EgyptEmbassyUSA @egyptconsulatuk

“The situation is very scary, the borders are closed and we are here, 70 people, mostly women and children trapped. I can see the smoke and fire, and I can hear the explosions very close to where we are,” said Nalan, one of the women trapped at the Rafah Crossing, talking to The Real News.

Listen to the audio recording of a phone call with Nalan Al Sarraj, correspondent for The Real News Network, trapped at the crossing here.

A call issued by civil society organizations and public figures including African National Congress (ANC) leaders Ahmed KathradaRonnie Kasrils, and former vice president of the European Parliament, Luisa Morgantini and Richard Falk states that “Despite a call from Egyptian citizens to lift the siege, the Egyptian government which controls one border and has the option to be part of a humanitarian response to the besieged people of Gaza, has instead supported the Israeli plan for return to the status quo of slow genocide.”

Israel…will accept only a Palestinian “state” that is stripped of all the attributes of a real state: control over security, borders, airspace, maritime limits…This is all Israel is offering, with the full approval of Washington…The Palestinians have resisted that pathetic fate (as any nation would). »http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/collective-punishment-gaza?src=mp (via alterities)

An Excuse For War
  • Media: Why are you bombing Gaza?
  • Israel: Because Hamas killed three Israeli settlers.
  • Media: It now appears they didn't. So why ARE you bombing Gaza?
  • Israel: Because Hamas fires rockets at Israel.
  • Hamas: We did that because two young Palestinian boys were executed by the IDF as they were walking along a street minding their own business.
  • Media: We didn't know that.
  • Hamas: Yes you did. You just pretend that we fire rockets into Israel without any provocation because then Israel's response can be legitimised and apologised for.
  • Media to Israel: Don't you think that's enough now? You're just killing mostly civilians and children. Isn't that a war crime?
  • Israel: The rockets fired at us are a war crime. We won't stop until the tunnels are destroyed.
  • Media: Wait, what? First you said this was about the three boys murdered, then it was because of the rockets, and now you're saying its because of the tunnels. Which one is it?
  • Israel: It is what we say it is when we say it is. Any criticism of Israel is thinly veiled antisemitism in support of a terrorist organisation and sympathy for Hamas' goal of ethnically cleansing Jews.
  • Media: Wait, what?!!
  • Clinton: It's a shame but Gazans have mostly themselves to blame because they elected and work with Hamas. Also Israel gave them some beautiful greenhouses and Hamas destroyed them. We can't help them if they won't help themselves and end the violence.
  • Obama: We should find a way to end the violence on both sides but Hamas has to surrender first.
  • Cameron: Whatever Obama said.
  • BBC: Today, some more people in Gaza died. Meanwhile, three Israeli soldiers were brutally murdered by Hamas rockets. One innocent Israeli owl was slightly hurt too. It seems there is no end to this carnage on both sides.
  • CNN: Settlers cheered today when watching bombs fall on Gaza.
  • Settlers: Watch your mouth or we'll bomb your car you terrorist-sympathising bitch.
  • CNN: Our new reporter assigned to the region comes live now from Amman.
  • Israeli Right: Burn Gaza Burn! Yay! Gaza is a graveyard la la la la
  • Israeli Left: Both sides? Can we please just stop for a moment and ...
  • Israeli Right: You liberals are scum and unpatriotic. Here's my fist to teach you a lesson.
  • Media: So Mr. Netanyahu, why ARE you bombing Gaza?
  • Netanyahu: Because we want to, because we always planned on doing this, because this is our policy of securing Israeli security, because we don't want a Palestinian Unity Government, because Gazans voted for Hamas against our wishes, because it's good for my election prospects, and because Israel belongs to the Jews and Palestine doesn't exist, and anyone who says differently is a Holocaust Denier.

This is commander. Anything that’s mobile, that moves in the zone, even if it’s a three-year-old, needs to be killed. Over. »

Captain R, an Israeli army officer who repeatedly shot a 13-year-old Palestinian girl in Gaza in 2004.

The Guardian reported:

"[Captain R] dismissed a warning from another soldier that she was a child by saying he would have killed her even if she was three years old. The officer… was charged… with illegal use of his weapon, conduct unbecoming an officer and other relatively minor infractions after emptying all 10 bullets from his gun’s magazine into Iman al-Hams [the child killed] when she walked into a “security area” on the edge of Rafah refugee camp…

The case came to light after soldiers under the command of Captain R went to an Israeli newspaper to accuse the army of covering up the circumstances of the killing. A subsequent investigation by the officer responsible for the Gaza strip, Major General Dan Harel, concluded that the captain had “not acted unethically”.

However, the military police launched an investigation, which resulted in charges against the unit commander. Iman’s parents have accused the army of whitewashing the affair by filing minor charges against Captain R. They want him prosecuted for murder.”

The Zionist narrative of “self-defense” breaks down pretty quickly when you know stories like this.
