The death toll in Gaza increased dramatically as American-armed Israeli Defense Forces opened fire on thousands of unarmed protesting Palestinians. The death and injured toll now stands at 60 dead, 2,771 have been injured including 203 children and 78 women. One can only imagine the corporate media uproar if any other country had as brazenly and publicly slaughtered campaigners including children.
When media began sharing reports of protests in Iran in December 2017, President Trump took to Twitter to cheer on the protestors.
That same logic does not apply when thousands of defenceless Palestinians protest and the NATO-backed Israelis commit human rights violations? Trump’s silence is deafening and serves as a reminder that he has fallen into line with the deep state control mechanism.
Russian President Vladimir Putin explained that he had worked with three different US presidents but there was no difference in policy because presidents are merely figureheads. (Putin Exposes Fake US Democracy. https://bit.ly/2JGdpbL)
When the US launched its attempt to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, it launched multi-million-dollar programs to arm and train protesters, even with the knowledge that many of them were non-Syrian insurgents.
The US also arms and supports Saudi Arabia which government is notorious for constant human rights violations, including fuelling genocide in the poorest country in the Middle East.
Armed by the US, EU, and UK, Saudi Arabia, publicly executes civilians accused of protesting after denying them a trial.
In Israel-Occupied Palestine, activists are killed and thousands have been wounded by Israeli sniper fire in recent weeks. Israel claims that every protestor was a militant and deserved to die, but there was one civilian death that was particularly notable.
Yaser Murtaja, a Palestinian photojournalist, was wearing a jacket that clearly said PRESS when he was publicly executed by a NATO-Israeli alliance sniper on Friday.
A disturbing video was leaked last month that showed Israelis screaming with joy after a sniper targeted and shot an unarmed man who was standing in a field on the other side of their border fence.
The victim is seen standing motionless on the other side of the barrier as another man and a small child walk past him. Another man remarked, “I can’t see because of the wire” and then said, “There’s a little boy there,” obviously noting the presence of the child.
The sniper then fired one shot, striking the Palestinian who was making no attempt to do anything that could have threatened the soldiers observing him from a distance. Cheers erupted from the Israelis after the Palestinian man was shot and then collapsed on the ground.
The man filming the shooting can be heard saying, “Wow, what a video! Yes, son of a bitch. What a video, here, run and get him out of there. Of course, I filmed it.”
