[ - ] The New Yorker joins the rest of the world, lion share of which is anti-Israel, in condemnation for what those criminals are doing to the State of Palestine: "What Israel is doing in Gaza now is collective punishment. It is punishment for Gaza’s refusal to be a docile ghetto." http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/collective-punishment-gaza 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

In the past seven or more years, Israel has besieged, tormented, and regularly attacked the Gaza Strip. The pretexts change: they elected Hamas; they refused to be docile; they refused to recognize Israel; they fired rockets; they built tunnels to circumvent the siege; and on and on. But each pretext is a red herring, because the truth of ghettos—what happens when you imprison 1.8 million people in a hundred and forty square miles, about a third of the area of New York City, with no control of borders, almost no access to the sea for fishermen (three out of the twenty kilometres allowed by the Oslo accords), no real way in or out, and with drones buzzing overhead night and day—is that, eventually, the ghetto will fight back. It was true in Soweto and Belfast, and it is true in Gaza. We might not like Hamas or some of its methods, but that is not the same as accepting the proposition that Palestinians should supinely accept the denial of their right to exist as a free people in their ancestral homeland.

"the ghetto will fight back. It was true in Soweto and Belfast, and it is true in Gaza" but now the ghetto also has the International Court of Justice. what a resourceful and capable guy President Mahmoud Abbas resulted. First country to confirm they would vote YES in the UN granting statehood to Palestine was Brazil. The same country was the 1st to withdraw their ambassador and call what Israel is doing to Gaza a "massacre". The rest of the south american countries joined right away. This was Dec 2010. By 2012 the UN had the back of the tired Palestinians, who NEVER gave up to Israel's terror. [ Reply | More ]

LOL We might not like Hamas or some of its methods. Israel is clearly doing something wrong though not sure what else it can do, but the legitimizing of Hamas is just the most bizarre aspect of all of this. Wait till they come after you, I bet you sing a different tune, as all the authors. [ Reply | More ]

give it up, it's over. the ICJ is ruling for the State of Palestine, 14 vs 1. Israel LOST and big time. what's doing now is what it's been threatening Palestine for years: "if you go to the UN for your Statehood, Israel will go insane "nishtagea" (meaning, a tough response)". That's what they are doing, going insane, dealing with their loss while making things worse. they will lose each single case by a landslide with what they just did to Gaza. the more killing they do, the more compensation they will have to pay to the State of Palestine that just won the long war.

[ - ] Israel is going to be taken to the cleaners by the State of Palestine in the International Court of Justice: "9 July 2004 – The International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued an advisory opinion today that Israel's building of a barrier in the occupied Palestinian territory is illegal and said construction must stop immediately and Israel should make reparations for any damage caused." The Gaza bombing was after that, so I assume a ton of compensation for that as well. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The only power plant Gaza had that was destroyed by Israel a couple of days ago it's insured by USA. So USA taxpayers, whether pro-Israel or not will have to pay for that bombing as well. LESSON: don't support apartheids if possible. [ Reply | More ]

lol... it starts the AIPAC way: "WASHINGTON -- As lawmakers on Capitol Hill scrambled to approve increased military funding for Israel this week, a little-noted federal agency across town prepared to spend as much as $84 million to compensate an American company for losses sustained in the Israeli bombardment of a Gaza power plant."

so that mom that was saying LAND, LAND, LAND... was all wrong. this is about having to PAY REPARATIONS for crimes since 1967, given how dire they are, there's not deadline to be able to get Israel to court. Human Rights crime are kind of awesome that way. it's never too late. [ Reply | More ]

this is what happens when a country is ruled by military men. they have NO ideal about international laws, human rights and the like. Israel will get much tougher rulings now that everybody has seen the brutality of their conduct. [ Reply | More ]

this is the kind of difference i'd expect, a 14 to 1 is huge. "By a majority of 14 to 1, the judges found that the barrier's construction breaches international law, saying it violated principles outlined in the UN Charter and long-standing global conventions that prohibit the threat or use of force and the acquisition of territory that way, as well as principles upholding the right of peoples to self-determination."

[ - ] Israel is SO FUCKED! The State of Palestine had earned access to the International Court of Justice. Now it can bring "crimes against humanity" and war-crimes charges, including that of unlawfully occupying the territory of State of Palestine, against Israel in the International Criminal Court. Amazing that the morons Israelitas didn't adjust their behavior after 2012, what kind of international judge in the ICC would ever rule in favor of Israel?? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The State of Palestine will be able to live for life with the reparations Israel will have to pay it. But... unfortunately that might mean that USA will end up paying. Just like with the only power plant that Israel just bombed in Gaza, it was insured by the USA government. That means: by all of us! THANK YOU ISRAEL! Way too much STEM but little humanities and common sense. [ Reply | More ]
