What War Crimes by Rodrigo

What is currently transpiring in the Gaza Strip is unconscionable. Israel, of course, always with the upper hand provided by funding and weaponry from the US, is engaged in a form of protectionist genocide.

This isn’t to say Hamas isn’t guilty of its own sins of aggression. But the escalation of this tragic situation where an eye-for-an-eye retaliation has turned into massive Palestinian body counts is yet a further example of how violent military actions achieve nothing of value in the long run.

So they really believe that killing bystanders will do anything productive other than creating a newer breed of even more vehement enemies? Israel has created a monster that will produce more hardened and determined heads for every one they attempt to cut off or starve out. Continued violation of a proud people will produce the same sort of ends that were achieved by Germany in WWII.

For a long while, as the Israelis have striven to carve out a homeland in an oppressive environment, they have chosen to use similar tactics against the Palestinians that were once used to thwart their own progress. Common sense might prevail if it weren’t for hawkish politicians and military men calling the shots on both sides. Until that time arrives, if ever, people struggling to survive will find themselves burying loved ones.

If Israel ever feared the prospect of Iranian nuclear arms proliferation I would suspect that, after these acts against “terrorist” activities in Gaza, they will find themselves even more afraid. First eyes, later lives.

The whole world watches as the pot boils over.
