Must Listen: “Anatomy of a Genocide” by Manu Pineda and Francesca Albanesse at the EU & “How an Israeli war criminal turned Gaza into ‘the biggest refugee camp in the world'” by Ilan Pappé

In my view, Francesca Albanesse and Ilan Pappé are more trustworthy and honest than Zionists Irwin Cotler and Rosalie Abella when it comes to Israel’s crimes. Most of our media and politicians in USA and Canada are cowardly genocide-enabling lying flakes.

These two clips are powerful, succinct, courageous … not a lie to be heard.

… but, EU will continue doing nothing, ’cause USA leads the genocidal pack, ’cause money, ’cause weapons industry, ’cause more money, ’cause oil, gas and frac industry, ’cause racism, ’cause humanity is inhumane, ’cause most humans are cowards, notably politicians.

Israel and Zionists in general can not exist or survive without lies, deception, misinformation, disinformation and propaganda. It is what they eat. It is what they digest. It is what they breathe. It is what they dress. It what they write. It is what they speak.


How an Israeli war criminal turned Gaza into “the biggest refugee camp in the world” by Middle East Eye, April 10, 2024

Ilan Pappe, a renowned Israeli historian, challenges common perceptions of the Gaza Strip’s history. He asserts that prior to 1948, Gaza was not known as a “strip” but was a cosmopolitan town with a rich, diverse culture.

In a video circulating online from January 2024, Pappe emphasises that the term “Gaza Strip” emerged post-1948, following the Israeli invasion, reshaping Gaza’s identity and geography.

Press conference by Manu PINEDA & Francesca Albanesse on the “Anatomy of a Genocide” April 10, 2024

From the transcript:

Franchesca albanesi:

good morning everyone thank you for being here

so after five months of monitoring and analyzing Israel’s onslaught on Gaza my report which I presented to the Human Rights Council on the general assembly uh but this report finds that
there are reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating that Israel is committing the crime of genocide against Palestinians as a group in Gaza has been met specifically

I found that Israel has committed three acts of genocide with the requisite intent:

first killing members of the group

second causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

third deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of Life calculated to bring about its physical destructions in all or in part

the flagrant and systematic Slaughter of Palestinian civilians

the deployment of unlawful Weaponry

the utter obliteration of vital civilian infrastructure including the deliberate targeting of
all Gaza hospitals

and the human-made starvation of the Palestinian people in Gaza transcend the realm of war crimes and crimes against humanity

the monstrosity unfolding in Gaza is accompanied by a pervasive anti Palestinian narrative and
dehumanization emanating from the uppermost tires of Israel’s Israeli Society including high ranking officials with command Authority and frequently reflected in soldiers actions on the

this reflects the intent the doo specialis which is prescripted in the genocide convention to destroy a group in all or in part which is what distinguishes genocide from other atrocity crimes in the case of Gaza there exists a chilling Clarity of this purpose the systematic eradication of an entire people blamed for what has been done to Israeli civilians on the 7th of October or at least a significant portion thereof

one of the key findings is that Israel’s executive and Military leadership and soldiers have intentionally distorted use in principle so rules of international humanitarian law subverting their protecting protective functions in an attempt to legitimize genocidal violence against the Palestinian people in Gaza

the only re reasonable inference that can be drawn from the unveiling of this legal policy is an Israeli State policy of genocidal violence toward the Palestinians in Gaza and indeed what distinguishes this genocide from others is what I’ve called humanitarian camouflage

so the justification that the conduct of hostilities that Israel has never denied but has been was justified through the use of legal terminology

legal jargon like

human Shields

human warnings

evacuation orders

safe zones


UN Rapporteur Calls on European Union to Stop Genocide in Gaza by teleSUR/MS, 10 April 2024

“What remains of our humanity if we cannot react with indignation to what we are allowing to happen in Gaza,” Albanese said.

On Wednesday, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestine, Francesca Albanese, appealed to European countries to take concrete actions to stop the Israeli genocide in Gaza.

“We need willingness. There needs to be willingness in the European Union to act, among the EU member states to act. But before willingness, we must truly reconsider where our conscience lies. Because I even wonder what remains of our humanity if we cannot react with indignation to what we are allowing to happen in Gaza,” said Albanese at a press conference.

Upon an invitation from the Left United MEP Manu Pineda, she attended the European Parliament in Brussels to present “Anatomy of a Genocide,” a report that advocates for taking “countermeasures” to ensure that “Israel complies again with international law.”

“The report cites ‘reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating the commission of the following acts of genocide against Palestinians in Gaza has been met: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to groups’ members; and deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part’,” commented the Middle East Eye.

Countermeasures are “the only thing that can guarantee the security, protection, and freedom of all who live between the Jordan River and the sea,” said Albanese.

Among these countermeasures, she proposes an arms and oil embargo on Israel as well as sanctions for state and non-state actors. The ultimate goal is to ensure the permanent ceasefire ordered by the United Nations Security Council, “whose resolutions are binding.”

Albanese also considered it “fundamental to explore what the United Nations Charter allows in the presence of a massive international wrongful act, which are countermeasures, including revocation of diplomatic recognition, selective sanctions on government officials, and economic and political sanctions.”

She also proposed the suspension of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Israel and the suspension of relations with Israeli institutions and private companies registered under the national jurisdictions of European countries.

Albanese recommended that “an exhaustive, independent, and transparent investigation of the atrocious crimes, especially acts equivalent to genocide,” be supported, referring situations of genocide in Palestine to the International Court of Justice.

She pointed out that this Court, which is the supreme judicial institution of the United Nations, recognized “the genocide” of Israel in Gaza on January 26 and that the international community is obligated to take action to stop Israeli actions.

Albanese also criticized as “very cynical” to hear how EU member states discuss the humanitarian issue in Gaza, after 33,000 people have been killed, 70 percent of whom are women and children.

“It is clear that the victims were not just mass fighters, but also doctors, nurses, engineers, academics, scientists, and children. This is about the highest number of child deaths in a conflict. In fact, that figure is higher than the number of children killed in the last four years in all conflicts worldwide,” emphasized the United Nations rapporteur.


I’ve boycotted Israeli products and Israel for decades because of its crimes against Palestinians
