The Zionist brutality continues

Following the cold blood murder of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh by the Zionist army the Zionist propaganda was that most likely she was killed by Palestinians’ fire or may be by a mistake of a soldier. In addition, the Israeli government said that it will investigate the shooting but it needs the cooperation of the Palestinian Authority. Today we are informed that the Military Police will not open an investigation into the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh.

“The unsourced Haaretz report said military prosecutors do not consider Abu Akleh’s death one in which there is suspicion of criminality. But the newspaper pointed to another possible reason for the decision not to open a Military Police probe: Such an investigation would necessitate interrogating troops that participated in the battle under caution, which would likely ignite a storm of controversy within Israeli society” [1]

Indeed, most Israelis do not think that killing Palestinians is a crime this was reflected in the Zionist parliament when Joint List Ahmad Tibi called Yesh Atid MK Merav Ben-Ari “scum” from the rostrum of the Knesset plenum on Wednesday. “Tibi said he was outraged at Ben-Ari, because she had said on Channel 12’s Meet the Press program on Saturday night that she was not upset about the death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in Jenin. Ben-Ari said she made the comment because she believed Abu Akleh’s reports made Israel look bad around the world” [2]

Yesh Atid is considered in Israel a party of the center not a party of the right. In the Zionist parliament 75% of the MKs belong to right wing parties. Thus, we are not surprised by the fact that the military police does not intend to investigate the murder.

The police and the right-wing MK are acting now to remove Tibi and Kasif of the Joint list from the Zionist parliament because they do not act according to the Zionists rules of kissing the hands of the Zionist master race.

The Police asked a permission from the ombudsman to open a criminal investigation against Tibi and Kasif: “Following the events of the last few days and according to the instructions of Commissioner Ranim Kobi Shabtai, the Investigations and Intelligence Division of the Israel Police collected materials regarding the recent incidents in which MKs Ahmad Tibi and Ofer Kasif were documented in front of police officers in the Jerusalem and SJ districts. Attached is a letter from the police with a request to approve the opening of an investigation for assaulting police officers, failing a police officer in the performance of his duties, threats, and interfering with a police officer in the performance of his duties. The request to the ombudsman was previously examined by the police investigation division, which found that there was room to open an investigation against them in light of the materials collected” [3]

If the brutal attack of the Zionist police on the funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh in Jerusalem was not bad enough, this attack has continued after the funeral. A pallbearer beaten by police during the funeral of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh last week has been arrested, according to his lawyer. Khaldoon Nijm said his client Amro Abu Khdair was arrested on Monday, and has not been told what he is being charged with. [4]

In addition, “Police reportedly assaulted relatives of a Palestinian man hospitalized in serious condition when they arrived at a Jerusalem hospital to arrest him on Tuesday.Eyewitnesses and hospital officials told Haaretz that officers beat the man’s relatives with batons. One of the men lost consciousness and required medical treatment.Nader a-Sharif, 50, was hospitalized at Shaare Zedek Medical Center after he was shot in the head with a sponge-tipped bullet during fierce clashes on Monday in East Jerusalem between police and mourners at the funeral of one of his relatives, a Palestinian man who died after being critically wounded during clashes on the Temple Mount last month Witnesses said Nader a-Sharif was hit moments after he finished helping to fill in the grave, and was not involved in any stone-throwing. He was hit in the head by the sponge-tipped bullet. The report said he suffered severe eye damage and there were concerns he could also have brain damage” [5]

The brutality of the Zionist armed forces is weakening the support for Israel around the world. While in London alone more than 50,000 marched on Nakba day in support of free Palestine from the river to the sea, in New York city organizers for the Pro Israel March hope that 40,000 Zionists will participate in the event. “Some 40,000 marchers are expected at the parade, which has been called the world’s largest expression of solidarity with the Jewish state outside of Israel and has been held since 1965” [6]

This growing isolation of the Zionist state was reflected in the statement of Matt Duss Bernie Sander adviser: “Israel rejecting Palestinian ‘right of return’ is great replacement theory – Sander’s adviser “In the Israeli-Palestinian context, ‘Great Replacement Theory’ is expressed as opposition to the Palestinian right of return,” said Bernie Sanders’ foreign policy adviser Matt Duss. Israeli rejection of the Palestinian “right of return” is the same as the “Great Replacement Theory” – the conspiracy theory that drove the Saturday night Buffalo shooter – US Senator Bernie Sanders’ foreign policy adviser Matt Duss and several American commentators claimed on Monday.

“In the Israeli-Palestinian context, ‘Great Replacement Theory’ is expressed as opposition to the Palestinian right of return, which treats Palestinians as a ‘demographic threat,’” said Duss. “US leaders condemn the former while constantly declaring support for the latter”

“It’s fine and appropriate to discuss the historical context for Israel’s restrictive immigration policies, which is different from the US,” Duss continued, saying that proponents of Israel’s position “should understand, though, that treating a disfavored minority as a ‘demographic threat’ is an approach shared by ethnonationalist movements.” [7]

Sanders is a soft pro Zionist and coming with such a statement just shows the growing change toward the Zionist apartheid state in the public opinion in the USA. This change in the public opinion does not change the support of the White House for Israel. Israel has just finished a military drill stimulating an attack on Iran and American planes participated in the drill fueling the Israeli plans and this is not surprising also as the USA supported the South African apartheid until the late 1980s.

When the American imperialists that rule the USA will impose sanctions on Israel it will be only as a move to contain the Arab revolution.

Hands off the joint List!

Support the right of return of the Palestinian refugees!

Down with all the imperialists!

For a Palestine red and free from the river to the sea!
