  12. "Exterminate all the Brutes": Gaza 2009
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Israel has a straightforward means to defend itself: put an end to its criminal actions in occupied territories, and accept the long-standing international consensus on a two-state settlement that has been blocked by the US and Israel for over 30 years, since the US first vetoed a Security Council resolution calling for a political settlement in these terms in 1976. The Arab League has gone even beyond the consensus, calling for full normalization of relations with Israel. Hamas has repeatedly called for a two-state settlement in terms of the international consensus. Iran and Hezbollah have made it clear that they will abide by any agreement that Palestinians accept.
  13. Gaza: An Inquest into Its Martyrdom
    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2018
    The Gaza Strip is among the most densely populated places in the world. More than two-thirds of its inhabitants are refugees, and more than half are under eighteen years of age. Since 2004, Israel has launched eight devastating “operations” against Gaza’s largely defenseless population. Thousands have perished, and tens of thousands have been left homeless. In the meantime, Israel has subjected Gaza to a merciless illegal blockade.
    What has befallen Gaza is a man-made humanitarian disaster.
    Based on scores of human rights reports, Norman G. Finkelstein's new book presents a meticulously researched inquest into Gaza’s martyrdom. He shows that although Israel has justified its assaults in the name of self-defense, in fact these actions constituted flagrant violations of international law.

  15. Health care and children in crisis in Gaza
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2007
    These days one hears a lot about Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan, adults who have been specifically trained for warfare, who are nevertheless traumatized by the experience of seeing comrades injured or killed, or suffering injuries or danger themselves. The trauma goes on, long after the experience has ended and they are back in a place of safety. How much worse then for children in Gaza who witness and experience these events day after day, week after week with no end and with no place of safety.

  48. This is Genocide
    On Israel/Palestine

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2014
    To call what is going on in Israel and Palestine a “conflict” is to partake in the racist and blatantly false narrative that is being pushed by Israel. When one side fights with stones and homemade rockets, and the other side fights with a military backed by the full force of the United States military industrial complex, it is not a “conflict.” When civilian casualties – including hundreds of children – amass on only one side, it is not a “conflict.” When one side sets up with lawn chairs and popcorn to watch and cheer as their government bombs another country, it is not a “conflict.”

    For the few of us who reported East Timor long before it was finally declared news, the "disclosures" last weekend that Washington had trained Indonesia's death squads are bizarre.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    If there was ever a moment when the peoples of the region would accept Israel as a Zionist state in their midst, that has passed forever. Israel's "military deterrent" has now been repeatedly discredited as a means to force Palestinians and other Arabs to accept Zionist supremacy as inevitable and permanent. Now, the other pillar of Israeli power - Western support and complicity - is starting to crack. We must do all we can to push it over.
