Enable the Israelis to Kill Palestinian Children

In the past few months, especially since the beginning of the current
wave of Palestinian resistance against Israel’s enduring brutal military
occupation, about six months ago, the Israeli army and other security forces
adopted a decidedly murderous policy against Palestinians, especially
A shoot-to-kill policy was adopted by the Israeli
political and military leadership, apparently for the purpose of terrorizing
and “deterring” the Palestinian populace. Consequently, dozens of young
Palestinians were needlessly murdered on the streets of the West Bank on the
pretext that some of the victims may have put the life of Israeli soldiers
In some incidents, soldiers fired additional bullets at the
heads of the already completely “neutralized” victims.
Israeli army lexicon, this is done for the purpose of verifying their death.
The gruesome killings leave no doubt as to the nefarious behavior of
the murderous soldiers.
Israel has no credible justice system when
it comes to dealing with the Palestinians.
Jewish religious laws
don’t ascribe real humanity to non-Jews in general. This disgusting mindset
is applied to the fullest when dealing with the Palestinians.
Occasionally, Israel does some PR work to mitigate anger with regard to a
specific crime that had its way to the world media, especially the social
Israeli Hasbara would cite alleged extenuating circumstances
such as claiming the murdering soldiers were under mental pressure, thought
they were about to get killed or didn’t really intend to murder the
However, when protests get quieter and the
specific crime fades away from memory, the specific murderer is shamelessly
exonerated of any wrong-doing, celebrated as a hero, and given citations for
This shows that Israel effectively encourages its soldiers to
murder innocent Palestinians on the spot if there is the slightest suspicion
that they might be planning to hurl a stone toward the soldiers or stab them
with a small and virtually innocuous kitchen knife.
In many verified
instances, the murderous soldiers hastened to place a knife they carry with
them, near the already murdered Palestinian lying on the ground.
purpose of this criminal behavior is to give the impression that the victim
had sought to stab and kill Israelis.
More to the point, soldiers
patrolling the streets of the West Bank receive hair-raising instructions,
illustrating the evilness and brutal ugliness of the Israeli mentality.
They are commanded to shoot first and ask questions later. Of course we can
all imagine how a young soldier would behave vis-à-vis the Palestinians,
having been indoctrinated in school and synagogue that the life of a non-Jew
in general and a Palestinian in particular has no sanctity because,
according to the Talmud, he is not “a bona fide human being.”
soldiers are raised to be “Born to kill murderers.” That is why they murder
children and innocent civilians without the slightest compunctions. They
even would celebrate the murder with their comrades and superiors!
As to the victim, he or she is treated as another number rather than a human
Not only that, his home is often demolished in the quiet
hours before dawn, relatives arrested and harassed. Israel has even
threatened to deport families of Palestinians involved in the current
mini-intifada to the Gaza Strip or elsewhere. The timeless principle of
“innocent until proven guilty” has no existence in Israel, especially as far
as Palestinians are concerned.
Today, Israel is having a free season
on helpless and unprotected Palestinians. Israel is ganging up on the
Palestinians in what seems to be slow-motion annihilation.
I am not
saying that Israel is carrying a holocaust similar to the German holocaust
70 years ago.
But even the German holocaust lasted for 3 years
whereas the Palestinian plight has been going on for nearly 70 years.
By the end of the Second World War, the West rose up to help the Jews by
establishing a state for them at the expense of the native Palestinians.
However, the international community is effectively abandoning the
Palestinian people, granting evil Zionism a carte blanch to further torment
the Palestinians and uproot them from their own ancestral homeland.
This is why the peoples of the world must intensify their boycott and
sanctions against the apartheid entity.
So, we say to the peoples of
the world, in all solemnity and seriousness:
Don’t buy Israeli
Don’t allow Israeli firms to operate in your respective
Don’t invest in Israel.
This is the very least you could
do to save the Palestinian people from the clutches of diabolical Zionism.
We are not making this outcry because we are anti-Jewish, God forbid.
We are making these modest demands because buying Israeli products and
doing business with Israel enable the apartheid entity to have more bullets
to kill our children.
Please, don’t kill our children.
