Israeli Impunity is coming to an end

The days of Israel’s impunity are dwindling as the International Criminal Court inches closer towards opening a full investigation into war crimes in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

An Israeli diplomatic offensive and sanctions by the US have so far not bullied the court into submission.

A pre-trial chamber’s determination on court jurisdiction in Palestine is expected soon (the ICC just adjourned for the summer holiday and will reconvene in mid-August), and the Israeli government doesn’t anticipate the judges will rule in its favor.

The Tel Aviv daily Haaretz reported this week that Israel is compiling “a secret list of military and intelligence officials who might be subject to arrest abroad” should an ICC investigation proceed.

The paper said it was told the list “now includes between 200 and 300 officials.”

The document remains secret because the ICC “is likely to view a list of names as an official Israeli admission of these officials’ involvement in the incidents under investigation,” Haaretz added.

Likely suspects include top ministers and military brass who oversaw and carried out Israel’s 2014 offensive on the Gaza Strip. Among the senior-ranking potential suspects named by Haaretz are Benjamin Netanyahu and former army chief Benny Gantz, who jointly head Israel’s coalition government.

The list may also include lower-ranking officials involved in the building of West Bank settlements.

The number of personnel liable for war crimes prosecutions only grows larger with each street execution of a Palestinian by Israeli police and military.

“Unarmed and defenseless”

Dozens of human rights groups told the United Nations this week that the perpetrators of the extrajudicial execution of 26-year-old Ahmad Erakat at a checkpoint last month must be held accountable.

Israel said that Erakat had intentionally rammed the checkpoint with his car, causing minor injuries to a soldier. Video of the incident shows that soldiers shot Erakat when he exited his vehicle with hands in the air.

Erakat was running errands ahead of his sister’s wedding when he was slain. The bride “was already wearing her wedding dress when she learned that her brother had been killed,” the rights groups state in the appeal.

Erakat was due to be married in September after his wedding was postponed in May because of the pandemic.

“Clearly unarmed and defenseless,” Erakat was left to bleed to death for around 90 minutes while occupation forces denied him medical care, the rights groups state.

Israeli soldiers present did not provide Erakat with emergency treatment. Ten minutes after the shooting, an Israeli ambulance arrived at the checkpoint. Those medics treated only the lightly injured soldier and did not provide aid to Erakat.

“In treating a wounded Israeli soldier but leaving [Erakat] without medical assistance despite his critical injury, Israel’s conduct amounts to prohibited racial discrimination,” the rights groups add.

Israeli soldiers prevented Palestinian paramedics from reaching Erakat.

Denial of treatment of Palestinians injured by Israeli forces “must be understood as part and parcel of Israel’s widespread and systematic shoot-to-kill policy targeting Palestinians,” the rights groups say.

The aim of this policy “is to maintain Israel’s regime of systematic racial oppression and domination over the Palestinian people,” the groups add.

Israeli forces failed to provide treatment to injured Palestinians on at least 114 occasions in 2019 alone.

“The denial of medical assistance at the earliest possible moment” amounts to “violations of the rights to health and life,” the groups add in the urgent appeal.

“Climate of fear”

Israel is holding Erakat’s body as part of a policy of withholding the remains of Palestinians killed in what it claims are attacks on soldiers and civilians.

Israel delayed the return of the bodies of more than 250 Palestinians killed by its forces since implementing the policy in 2015.

It continues to withhold 63 of those bodies so that they may be used as bargaining chips in future prisoner swaps.

This practice, approved by Israel’s highest court, is a form of collective punishment that “amounts to torture and ill-treatment of the victims’ families,” the rights groups state.

Israel’s collective punishment practices are “designed to create a climate of fear, repression and intimidation” and “to weaken the capacity of the Palestinian people to effectively challenge the regime,” the appeal adds.

The willful killing of Ahmad Erakat is a grave violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, the rights groups say. State parties, including Israel, are obligated to bring persons suspected of carrying out such violations before their courts.

However, the Israeli military’s self-investigation mechanism “has repeatedly been shown to fall abysmally short of international standards for ensuring effective, genuine and credible investigations,” the groups add.

Given the lack of access to justice in Israeli courts, the groups say, “genuine accountability for Palestinian victims may only be attained through the international criminal justice and universal jurisdiction courts.”

“The International Criminal Court in this regard represents a court of last resort for Palestinians,” they add. The groups urge UN human rights experts “to call upon the ICC to rule, without delay, in recognition of the court’s territorial jurisdiction” in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Until justice is served, there will be yet another Palestinian family bereaved of a son or daughter week after week, month after month, year after year.

  1. Zionist impunity will never end as long as they continue to own the central banks of the world, which are the FED, the Bank of England, etc., and the IMF, the World Bank, etc., and the BIS ie the Bank of International Settlements which is the control point of the spear of all of these zionist owned banks, via these banks the zionists control the world.

    Israel will remain immune as long as the banks remain under zionist control.

    1. I wonder…with North America close to chaos, it may become untenable for ANYONE to exert orderly “control” over national destinies. “Financial collapse” means an end to peaceful commerce everywhere. In the Bible, it may be what is referred to as [the] “tribulation”, from which no one escapes – neither Jews nor non-Jews. Obviously, there are powers-that-be who believe they can emerge on top, and will continue to foment torment and disarray. These are “anti-Christ”, and are very active. Right now, the rise in gold and silver offerings indicates a panicky mood among people who wish to maintain their wealth intact. They really don’t understand that the units of measure by which their treasure is valued becomes worthless in time of collapse, making their gold and silver unstable in terms of set value. Land, tools, seed, and means-of-production are the only true “wealth”, and includes know-how and ability to defend – about which many young persons are woefully ignorant.

      1. Hola Gilb,
        You’re correct. Most of what humanity deems valuable is essentially worthless. Gold, silver and precious stones sure look nice. Shine and sparkle. But at the end of the day they have no value at all. In times of crisis a million-dollar diamond has less value than a ✋-full of organic 🍅 seeds. At least the latter can feed someone. It makes Donaldo think of history and the Conquistador military campaign in Peru. Apon encountering the Spanish, the Inca were perplexed at their lust for gold. For the Inca gold was plentiful. Like seashells on the beach. It simply had little value. But the Spanish were willing to fight and die for it. Ultimately the Inca were subdued due to other reasons. But Donaldos point is that MONEY is nothing more than a belief in the value of an abstract. Donaldo, a trucker, remembers very well at the advent of the Covid-19 virus very rich people driving luxury BMWs knocking on the side of Donaldos rig asking for bottled water. Yep folks. This is the new reality. But how can people respond? Donaldo, himself, only buys land. Real estate. Anyway. Donaldo just reflecting. 🤔🌮🍷

      2. What’s coming is not a financial collapse but a financial reset. When a country owns the international currency and abuses it, like the FED does, this country ends sucking up richness from abroad, financially. Precious metals works as restraints, Nixon ended the gold correlation with the US dollar in 1971. Back then De Gaulle called for repatriation of French gold in exchange for dollars, the JEW hates him for that.

        Technically, is it possible for out-of-thin-air fiat currency to work? Yes, it’s perfectly possible. What is impossible is to find an honest Jewish banker or politician, that’s why gold was used for international settlements.

        The 1988 cover of the magazine ‘The Economist’ announced a new world currency called ‘Phoenix’, the beginning of its operation would start in 2018 – it’s probably a crypto currency. The international reserve currency status of the US dollar is dying, as planned. That said, Amerika has some catch-up to do, no more financial appropriation of richness from the rest of the world, it will get poorer. The wars for the JEW Amerika has been fighting accelerated this process. All the confusion in America nowadays is related to this story, the final chapter is when the perps pack their bags live the house in flames and move to the next host. This story is so horrible that the US Army (Marines too?) humiliated itself being used as drug dealer of opium to sustain a dollar demand worldwide, together with the imposition to use US dollars in the oil trade.

        Now, some points about personal finance. Of course, don’t put all your money in a Jewish bank. To buy land under a Bolshevik revolution isn’t wise, Bolsheviks do not respect private property, especially land. Right now the land is for you to live not for financial speculation. Their utmost demagogy is to give land to the poor. We need something that is movable, tangible, protected from inflation and that keeps much of its purchase power after the financial reset, what is it? Also, something that can be used to barter, barter is amazing because the financial system is completely by-passed by it, no need to touch dirty (with blood) FED notes. Under current artificially low interest rates the banks don’t pay you anything to keep your savings there, actually they charge you.

        I confess I’m a silver bug. Interesting the name they use, if you own land you are a landLORD but if you own silver you are a silverBUG. The JEW doesn’t like you Goyim to buy silver or gold. This last week was the best week for silver in 40 years. Silver is financially volatile, it falls pretty fast too. I don’t buy gold for reasons I won’t mention right now. Silver is great because it’s relatively cheap and it’s easy to identify using simple techniques. It’s uneconomical to invest much money to produce phony “silver” pieces – usually silver coated brass, which is easy to identify testing the material’s density – that’s not the case for gold. You can bury it in the woods and the Bolsheviks will never find it. It has unique industrial applications (especially in the era of drones). Silver has the best thermal (or electrical) conductivity among metals. Silver does all mirrors. Silver is used as a catalyst for petrochemical processes. It has no economically-available substitute for its applications.

        Silver was made in the explosion of a star and end up here. Try to fake that, JEW!

        P.S. The colors of Satanism are supposedly red, black and white but I have a wild guess here – the JEW’s favorite colors are red and silver.

    2. Yes, Desert Fox, you have explained the gist of it. We live in a Jewish-Marxist reality and their “money out of thin air” controls everything. The Jewish complex is a complete singular entity, all working for that Supreme Court of Mankind (Ben Gurion) in Jerusalem. TROJ has been ensnared in the Jewish dialectic and as stupid as his flat Earth theory is, thinks that Jews are divided along lines of Trump versus Biden. No TROJ, it is the combined money power of Jewry versus us! “Communist-Corporate Jews are under your bed.” They are about to administer their final strokes to their plans, which means the total enslavement of the Goyim and their elimination.

      1. Agree, the book The Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reed which was written in 1956 is one of the most important books I have ever read and recommend it to anyone who wants to see how the zionists got control the west.

  2. I remember a time when the name Bibi Netanyahu was literally un-utterable in polite and even not so polite society, even as it all comes full circle. But people like Bibi (a very very BadBoy) don’t go easy. Not literally, metaphorically or wishfully thinking easy. In more ways than one Bibi reminds me of BadVlad. I can hear them cracking jokes at “Dacha Putin” from here..

  3. Lets not also forget about the remains of 263 Palestinians, Lebanese and Jordanians that Israel continues to hold to this date? Many of them killed in previous wars while others from recently. They are all buried in “number cemetery” which surrounded by a barbed wire. No names is engrave on the tome stones or grave markers. Would Crime Minister Satanyahu put an end to the suffering of those families and return the remains of their loved one for proper burial should he win the election? Both Islamic burial traditions require the deceased to be buried within 24 hours.

    Who can forget when Crime Minister Naziyahu turnedZachary Baumel’s remains into election’s publicity stunt to get re-elected. I can not wrap my head around the surprise discovery of an IDF soldier’s remains in Syria. The soldier was among 21 soldiers killed in a battle with the Syrian army in Lebanon during the 1982 Israeli invasion. For some odd reason, the soldier’s remains were shipped a few days ago from Damascus to Moscow for DNA analysis, then President Putin called to Netanyahu to come to Russia to pick up the soldiers’ remains. Bingo!

    By the way, Zackary Baumel was a member of the ISISraeli Occupation Forces who was among 21 soldiers killed in a battle with the Syrian army in Lebanon during the 1982 Israeli invasion. It is believed ISIS fighters discovered the grave of the IOF soldier and exhumed his remains. For some odd reason, the soldier’s remains were shipped a few days ago from Damascus to Moscow for DNA analysis, then President Putin called to Netanyahu to come to Russia to pick up the soldiers’ remains. Bingo!

    President Putin gets the credit and Syrians officials denied involvement and blamed a Syrian-based Palestinian faction PFLP-GC for assisting Israel. Fateh blamed Hamas for helping Israel locate the burial site in return for a promise by Israel not to target assassinate its leaders. Either way, this was a top secret Mossad operation and may never know the whole truth, just like 9/11 terrorist attacks.

  4. Israel has for a long time engaged in espionage on the US and stolen our top secrets, selling them to our adversaries, thereby damaging our national security.

    Jewish American spy Jonathan Pollard who is a dual citizen of America and Israel did immense damage to American security by selling American state secrets to Israel, which Israel then sold on to Russia and China.

    After serving 26 years in a US prison, he was finally freed and lived since then in ISISrael.

  5. Fact: The Jewish Money Power controls all power spectrums and will decide which team to put in charge of a token administration. …. Scantily populated, resource rich, wealthy little Australia is about to be drowned in Jewish debt! From a healthy budget surplus of one year ago, Australia’s Zionist-Jew Treasurer, Joshua Frydenberg has overseen the covid19 induced fall of Australia into one trillion dollars of debt. Australia is now a heavily indebted nation, rapidly being bought up by the Chinese. A friend asked me where Frydenberg borrows all this money-indebtedness from. I explained that they borrow it from the big Jewish owned and controlled banks, to whom the Australian people will have to pay huge interest amounts over the next decades. The friend asked me how the big banks get such huge amounts of money. I explained that the money as debt comes from the Jews in theCity of London, who, in turn, control the planet’s Reserve Currency via the Jewish consortium of big banks that own-control the American Federal Reserve. The logical next question was: Where does the Fed get its money from? I answered: Why, it taxes the American worker and also controls the money printing presses. And there is no auditing. It also controls the money keeping computers and can add zeros to money amounts at their leisure. So $1,000,000 can be easily blipped up as $1,000.000,000. I explained that since 1913 this has been referred to as “making money out of thin air.” This is why the reality is that hundreds of thousands of Jews are multi millionaires, if not $billionaires. Twice bankrupt Trump was issued several $billion in order to eventually become president. Jewish money, so created,has bought the planet, with the Rothschilds alone, owning at least 70% of the planet’s wealth. ….. And yes, us ignorant, stupid Goyim have allowed the Jews to do this!

    1. “From a healthy (Australian) budget surplus of one year ago” – What are you talking about Max?
      Since after 9/11 Australia is being continuously sucked down the international sewer pipe thanks to the glorious and selfserving but very well paid subjects of Australian political servantism and purposeful used treason to their own tribe and country while occupying (or are permanently glued to parliament chairs while being rewarded for their ongoing treason on their own country with corporation board chair$$$ as a retirement bonus) the parliament in Canberra as a life long criminal career while Aussies are having a true blue snooze away from ALL reality.
      With 99% of the Australian gold reserves on hold in London the only budget surplus I can detect anywhere in the world economies are those of the ONE EYED COL. A most trustworthy “economic” institution as it also just has confiscated Venezuelan gold from its own safety vaults on behalf “of the opposition of the Venezuelan regime” and for “a secure future”.
      By the way one trillion dollars of Aussie debt also contain A$ 270 Billion – just spent for the upcoming war on China and being paid to the usual profiteers in the global weapons industry – leading eventually to the same address/vaults of the headquarter of the worlds Hydra in the not so great but evil and comforting kingdom.

  6. Nothing will dwindle at or through the ICC. It is and always was business as usual in Zionia. Entertainment of the cruelest kind, but live and always on the screen.
    Another new world is on its way. With a new look but still rotten to the core.
    When one day in the future an Iranian court will be allowed to rule justice on Zionia’s international back stabbing scene then justice globally has become a gadget that now allows TRUST. Until then the almighty ICC and another Nuremberg all over again will not make any difference at all.

    Yes, Gilbert the young will once again awaken their interests to grow food as they will have no other choice when shelves stay empty and the hunger starts to hurt their spoiled little tummies during other harsh activities never experienced before – called survival.

  7. The ICC is a paper tiger, dominated, like everything else by Jewish monsters. Israel has flagrantly ignored every United Nations resolution directed at their ongoing genocide of the Palestinians. The USA, under firm Jewish rule, supports the genocidal maniacs. We have had over seventy years of Jewish atrocities against the Palestinians and not one iota of action has been done to stop it. So the murdering, dismemberment and torture continues at full pace. Israel is also immune in straffing Syria and occupying their land and oil fields, once again with the support of the USA. I laugh at the naive fools who still think their is an ounce of TRUE justice left on our planet. We live in JEWLAND. As they say, “We are all Palestinians.”

    1. Max. Don’t you know that to Zio-Jews the Palestinian are but insects. It looks like the Zio insecticide is being applied to the American people and the rest of Western Civilization all things considered. All the ramifications of the huge overreaction to Covid-19, the neo-Bolshevik rioting and destruction, and the impending economic collapse of the West runs full speed ahead.

      1. Of course I “know” the Jews treat the Palestinians as you say, “insects.” As I said they are being exterminated. Do not be so aggressive in your attitude, Toejam, you smartarse.

  8. Israel is in NO danger in any judicial system, the systems are made up of jews. Even the witnesses are lying damnable jews!!!
    BUT… WHITES ARE in grave danger!!

    The New Red Terror
    by Michael Hill , June 22, 2020

    (excerpts)
    On 9 April 2019 we may have seen the official beginning of a campaign that might be termed “The New Red Terror.” That’s when the US House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the “dangers” of “White nationalism,” and the panel was made up of Jews, blacks, and Muslims — with not a single White person to be found. It was very much like one of the old Soviet “show trials.” If you think that’s an exaggeration, consider the following quotations from prominent Jews:
    The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists… Keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed—not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed. (Noel Ignatiev, Professor at Harvard) (Destruction and removing of statues of WHITE leaders is being done RIGHT NOW – TODAY – throughout the US!!)

    I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive. (Barbara Lerner Specter, head of a Swedish think tank)

    In the same way ISIS and Al Qaeda and terrorism pose a threat to the U.S., so does the rise of white nationalism. Leadership starts at the top, it’s important to call it out and then to use the Justice department to fight back hard against it. (Elizabeth Warren, Democrat candidate for President, 2020).

    And, finally, on Twitter:
    We have to recognize the threat of white nationalism. We’ve got to call it out. As President of the United States, my Justice Department would go after white nationalists with full prosecution. #WarrenTownHall

    You may be wondering how this is related to the original Red Terror. If so, read on.

    Also from the article:
    “Trump is a convenient symbol and whipping boy for the Progressive campaign against their greatest fear: a resurgence of White nationalism in America, Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa—the entire White world. As I write this, the Progressive media are busy trying to link Trump’s support of White nationalism to the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand. This is how they choose to handle coverage when Whites have had enough and fight back against, in this case, the invasion of a hostile religious force. Whites are presented as bloodthirsty monsters while the more frequent violent acts of Muslims and other non-Whites are discounted, excused, or largely left unreported by the same media. No matter what, any hint of the rise of an active and determined White nationalism must be put down by The New Red Terror. Otherwise, Whites might start getting certain unacceptable ideas . . . and then acting on them.”

    1. Obviously Pat you have not understood my many comments about the stupidity of Goyim using the Jews’ fake word “antisemitism.” So, my boy, you really think Jews are Semites? Grow up! And read about the actual ethnic composition of the planet’s 16,000,000 Jews. The correct word is ANTIJEW! Comprehended? At last?

      1. Maximum Biloney –

        I have mostly understood your bloviating, rambling and bragging perfectly, young man. I learned who semites are in the 1950s!!

        You obviously missed the word – “(excerpt)” – following my personal comment ahead of the article:

        Israel is in NO danger in any judicial system, the systems are made up of jews. Even the witnesses are lying damnable jews!!!
        BUT… WHITES ARE in grave danger!!

        You need to learn to read, you FOOL. AND when you hit me… I always hit back!

    2. Pat –

      I didn’t know League of The South any longer existed. Good to know! I’ll inquire about meetings in my area. The last time I was involved, I was introduced into it by Eustace Mullins, and attended the meetings in Harrisonburg. They were very enlightening, and consisted of a decent class of people who were, at least, well-spoken. 🙂

  9. Pat, give me your definition of a “Semite”, seeing you reckon you know what this word means. And how about you describing the Jews’ swear word “antisemite”? C’mon, show some courage and intelligence, rather than me having to read your lengthy plagiarisms.

  10. Max –

    I told you I learned the word in 1950s. Elizabeth Dilling, who was the FIRST to translate the Soncino (Babylonian) Talmud into English, and the queen of jew ass-kickers…. explained it to me, directly, herself.

    SEMITE is an alteration of SHEMITE – which meant the descendants of Shem. Semites comprised the group of nations by the various languages they spoke.

    The Semitic languages today are Arabic, Amharic, Tigrinya, Hebrew, Aramaic-Assyrian and Maltese. In times past, Phoenician was included.

    Antisemitism is a fake word.

    How’s that young’un???? 🙂 🙂 🙂
