Israel accused of killing 75 children during day of ‘carnage’ and war crimes in Gaza war

Lizzie Dearden — The Independent July 29, 2015

The devastation in Gaza in the aftermath of the Israeli operation.

Israeli forces have been accused of carrying out war crimes during a day of “carnage” in the Gaza Strip that has been called Black Friday.

A report by Amnesty International on alleged atrocities in Rafah during last year’s conflict with Hamas claims Israeli forces killed at least 135 Palestinian civilians, including 75 children, following the capture of a soldier.

Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, 23, was with a unit searching for tunnels between Gaza and Israel when a fight started with militants and he disappeared on 1 August 2014.

Philip Luther, director of Amnesty International’s Middle East programme, claimed that the “relentless and massive bombardment” that ensured in residential areas of Rafah was a direct response to the capture and displayed a “shocking disregard for civilian…

Mark Kennedy: the spycop who disappeared into the cold

Originally posted on UndercoverInfo:

One of the many Spycops being investigated by the Pitchford Inquiry is Mark Kennedy, whose undercover exploits not only covered England & Wales (the geographic area restricted to the Inquiry) but Scotland and parts of Europe. Below we include, for the Inquiry’s benefit, an internal German Government report on Kennedy, as well as via a number of sources his extensive ‘CV’. There is now compelling evidence that the Inquiry should examine the activities of British undercover police outside of England & Wales (Kennedy was not the only spycop who worked across Europe – see below) .

“If Kennedy’s toll is taken as an average, the officers of the Special Demonstration Squad and National Public Order Intelligence Unit have caused around 8,000 miscarriages of justice. Even if we are conservative and presume there was just one per officer per year, the total is around 600. This may well be the biggest…

Chris Hedges: Boycott Israel’s “Apartheid” State

thefreeorg:

For many years activists have tried every kind of appeal and protest to shame or convince The Israeli State to stop their brutal killing, imprisoning and robbing of the Palestinians.Protests will NEVER WORK. these people are mass brainwashed and terrified of revenge and can rationalize to themselves any crime, even murdering hundreds of children.The way forward is an organised trade boycott, that can grow with every Israeli atrocity.

RT America on Jul 30, 2015

In an exclusive interview, investigative journalist Chris Hedges talks about his experience during last year’s destructive Israeli siege of Gaza. He explains what he saw as an “apartheid regime” and how the violence on the ground pushed him to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the state of Israel.

Originally posted on The Rojava Report:

Rojava is quickly becoming a center of trade and production despite the shortages and sufferings caused by the ongoing war, according to an article from ANHA carried by Özgür Gündem.

Economic development is occurring along the lines set forth by the leadership of the Kurdish Freedom Movement, and current economic growth is being led by newly found communes, committees, unions and civil organizing as part of the democratic economy model.

In the Efrîn canton alone, where hardly a workshop existed under the Baath regime, a new 84 thousand square meter industrial park close to the Eşefiyê neighborhood is now home to at least 800 workplaces providing for the livelihood of 5 thousand families.

This growth has been made possible in part to the work of the YPG and YPJ forces in the canton which have kept Efrîn a place of peace and security despite the civil war engulfing the rest…

Noam Chomsky: A Genuine Movement For Social Change

Originally posted on Rise Up Times:

“War is the health of the State,” wrote social critic Randolph Bourne in a classic essay as America entered World War I:

“It automatically sets in motion throughout society those irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the Government in coercing into obedience the minority groups and individuals which lack the larger herd sense. … Other values such as artistic creation, knowledge, reason, beauty, the enhancement of life, are instantly and almost unanimously sacrificed, and the significant classes who have constituted themselves the amateur agents of the State are engaged not only in sacrificing these values for themselves but in coercing all other persons into sacrificing them.”
