UN war crimes in Gaza Report: Balderdash!

Ethnic cleansing in Gaza, NOT war

To call the ongoing genocide in Gaza ‘war Crimes,’ serves to hide the truth about ethnic cleansing and lend legitimacy to Israeli atrocities

When UN calls the ongoing ethnic cleansing in Gaza ‘war crimes,’ it subliminally establishes the falsity that what happened in Gaza was a “war” [sic.]

The audiences are left to conclude naturally [sic] that awful things can and do occur in wars. Further, it treats the Israeli military operations between December 27 and January 18, 2009 as one isolated incident, a make-believe that Israel committed no other atrocities, before or after the Gaza ‘war.’

Don’t let the UN report and its author fool you, despite its strong language! The Gaza massacre wasn’t just an isolated ‘war’; it was another shameful chapter in Israel’s ongoing genocide of Palestinians.

More Psychopaths in Uniform

Ex-soldier bragged about Iraqi rape, deaths: lawyer

By Steve Robrahn

PADUCAH, Kentucky (Reuters) – A former U.S. soldier on trial in the gang rape of an Iraqi girl and the murder of her and her family in the war zone in 2006 was caught in a “perfect storm of insanity,” his lawyer told a jury on Monday.


“Private 1st Class Steven Green, alleged ringleader of the slayings, was only interested in killing Iraqis “nonstop” and bragged during a barbecue celebration later that what he had done was “awesome.” He is on trial in the gang rape of an Iraqi girl Abeer Qasim Hamza al-Janabi, 14, and the murder of her and her family in the war zone in 2006.

But government prosecutors in the same courtroom said former Private 1st Class Steven Green, alleged ringleader of the slayings, was only interested in killing Iraqis “nonstop” and bragged during a barbecue celebration later that what he had done was “awesome.”

Green, 23, is being tried in federal court as a civilian since his arrest came after he was discharged from the U.S. Army later in 2006 for a “personality disorder.”

He is the last of five men charged in the rape of Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi, 14, and the slaying of her and her father, mother and 6-year-old sister. The incident unfolded after the soldiers drank whiskey, played cards, and plotted the attack in Mahmudiya, 20 miles south of Baghdad, prosecutors have said.

Three of the other soldiers pleaded guilty in the attack and the fourth was convicted, all in military courts-martial. They were given sentences of from five to 100 years, though they could be paroled much sooner. Prosecutors said they are seeking the death penalty for Green.

In opening statements at the trial, Patrick Bouldin, a public defender, said Green’s platoon had been decimated by deaths and injuries before the crime.

“You have to understand the background that leads up to this perfect storm of insanity,” Bouldin told the jury.

Bouldin said Green had sought help dealing with combat stress after the deaths of close colleagues and was unsure whether Iraqis he encountered were friend or foe.

“They couldn’t tell the village people and the farmers from the insurgents and the terrorists,” he said.

IRAQIS HORRIFIED BY CRIME

Green, from Midland, Texas, faces 17 charges including sexual assault, murder, and obstruction of justice.

Outlining the gruesome details of the crime, federal prosecutor Brian Skaret said: “Who could have done these things? It wasn’t done by insurgents or terrorists. It was the work of this man, Steven Green.”

He said Green took his turn raping the girl after he shot to death the girl’s mother, father and sister. He said Green was predisposed to the crime.

“Steven Green wanted to kill Iraqi civilians,” Skaret said. “He wanted to kill them all the time, nonstop.”

After the crime, Skaret said, the men celebrated with a barbecue, and Green was said to have commented “that was awesome.” He also told an Army investigator the day after, “I did that. I killed them,” Skaret said.

The family was chosen because the soldiers viewed them as an easy target, prosecutors have said.

Iraqis were horrified by the crime, one of a series of incidents involving U.S. soldiers that strained relations with the Iraqi government. But the onset of Green’s trial three years later is not resonating with most Iraqis, observers there say.

The incident was portrayed in the 2007 movie “Redacted” by director Brian De Palma, who complained the film was censored by the studio. Its graphic images shocked many viewers.  (Editing by Michael Conlon and Andrew Stern in Chicago)

The Day Israeli War Crimes Became Too Obvious!

UN investigator sees evidence of war crimes in Gaza

Thu Jan 22, 2009

By Jonathan Lynn

GENEVA, Jan 22 (Reuters) – There is evidence that Israel committed war crimes during its 22-day campaign in the Gaza Strip and there should be an independent inquiry, U.N. investigator Richard Falk said on Thursday.

The mental anguish of the civilians who suffered the assault is so great that the entire population of Gaza could be seen as casualties, said Falk, U.N. special rapporteur on human rights in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Falk, speaking by phone from his home in California, said compelling evidence that Israel’s actions in Gaza violated international humanitarian law required an independent investigation into whether they amounted to war crimes.

“I believe that there is the prima facie case for reaching that conclusion,” he told a Geneva news conference.

Falk said Israel had made no effort to allow civilians to escape the fighting.

“To lock people into a war zone is something that evokes the worst kind of international memories of the Warsaw Ghetto, and sieges that occur unintentionally during a period of wartime,” Falk, who is Jewish, said, referring to the starvation and murder of Warsaw’s Jews by Nazi Germany in World War Two.

“There could have been temporary provision at least made for children, disabled, sick civilians to leave, even if where they left to was southern Israel,” the U.S. professor said.

Falk said the entire Gaza population, which had been trapped in a war zone with no possibility to leave as refugees, may have been mentally scarred for life. If so, the definition of casualty could be extended to the entire civilian population.

Falk, who was denied entry to Israel two weeks before the assault started on Dec. 27, dismissed Israel’s argument that the assault was for self-defence in the light of rocket attacks aimed at Israel from the Hamas-ruled Gaza strip.

“In my view the U.N. charter, and international law, does not give Israel the legal foundation for claiming self-defence,” he said.

Israel had not restricted fighting to areas where the rockets came from and had refused to negotiate with Hamas, preventing a diplomatic solution, Falk said.

About 1,300 Palestinians, many of them civilians, were killed and 5,000 wounded in the assault. [Ten Israeli soldiers were killed mostly by friendly fire. Three ‘civilians,’ were allegedly hit by cross-border rocket fire and killed. RTSF]
