Today’s SS Guard. The thugs of Israel.
It is no news to state that Israel engages in racist evaluation of human life. Arab and Muslim life is seen as cheap and dispensable and this is why Israel never hesitates to use the most brute force against the Palestinian civilian population.
Israeli snipers have been employed against Palestinian civilian demonstrations, and Israeli occupation troops fire live bullets at Palestinian youth throwing rocks. Israel calls this self-defense. Its poor soldiers, it alleges, are “threatened” by Palestinian children with slingshots and they have no other recourse expect to open fire. Israeli even has killed its own Arab citizens, again simply for the act of nonviolent protestations. And, as in all cases, not a single Israeli police officer was held accountable for killing fellow citizens simply for demonstrating. A mock investigation was opened and then closed without even a published report let alone prosecution.
But when faced with militant Jewish protest that is genuinely violent, Israel not only does not use arms its soldiers go in unarmed. During the Gaza uprooting of illegal settlements, militant Jewish took up siege and threw rocks and even acid at Israeli soldiers. And recently ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem resorted to burning down buildings in the city in protest of a state action. An token Arab member of the Israeli Knesset ironically noted the level of restraint the Israeli police were showing toward such violent Jewish protesters. Not a single one was shot at. If these were Arabs burning down buildings…do you even have to ask?
This is how Israeli treats human life. Jewish life, even when that individual is throwing acid in your face and burning property, is never supposed to be harmed, but all non-Jews may be killed with impunity. State sanctioned rabbis preached to Israeli occupation soldiers that the Palestinians in Gaza deserved death because they are gentiles intruding on ‘Jewish land’: Israelis soldiers went on to kill over 1,400 Palestinians, including over 400 children, in that war. And even the Israeli government has now begone to prosecute some of its soldiers for blatant killing of innocent Palestinians: including Palestinian civilians carrying white flags and a little girl. But, don’t be fooled, such prosecutions are meant just for PR purposes. Israel always announces its will prosecute this or that soldier when human rights organizations have Marshalled strong evidence of wrongdoing. This announcement gets a headline and Israel hopes to project the image of a lawful society which respects all human life and has “the most moral army in the world,” no less. But when it comes to actually applying consequences, even the most guilty and savage of soldiers get off free:
An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday.
Because those soldiers are not “rogue” or went “astray” from normal Israeli conduct, they are the heart of a militant society that has an incessant disregard for the lives of the “Other”.
During Israel’s assault on Gaza, occupying Israeli troops left their fecal material in the floors, refrigerators and washing machines of Palestinians. They left hateful graffiti all around. As the occupation continues, as does the degree of Israeli violence. Israeli soldiers are more sadistic than ever:
Israeli soldiers attacked the teachers and children returning from a school trip in the West Bank town of Beit Ummar on Thursday afternoon.
But beating up children is quite common for Israeli thugs. Israeli “men” find it courageous and a symbol of Zionist heroism to gang up and beat up Palestinian children. This is because of the depraved Zionist mind. These Israeli occupiers probably project an image of Nazi SS onto Palestinian children and seek to “fight the Nazis”. This is way many of these occupiers have become inhumane in their brutality, because they are moved by deep and powerful forces that disallow them to properly see their cruelty:
Beating up children is considered a part of “manhood” in Zionist ethos. Insecure Jewish men get to “prove” their manhood by taking armed jeeps and guns and beating up youth throwing rocks. The Israeli “man” gets a high off of that. He thinks he’s defend his “homeland” from these “terrorists”. This is their idea, the Zionist idea, of “manhood”: thugs, hoodlums and occupiers. Their image is beyond sickening and disgusting. But justice will be done in the end.
The culprit in these is more than the sadistic and atavistic occupation/terrorist soldiers and the equally so illegal settlers, but an ideology – Zionism – that sanctions and blesses such inhumanity. The view that all that which needs to be done to build a Jewish state in Palestine is justified. It was the founding father of Zionism, Theodore Herzl, who when asked how could a Jewish state be established when there already is an native population of Arabs replied with the French proverb, “Those who desire the ends, desire the means.”
This is Israel. This is Zionism.
But no injustice lasts forever and the thuggery of Israeli occupiers will end.
