Israeli Snipers Killing Wantonly

CBC will not ask it, but I will:

Is it a war crime for snipers to shoot to kill civilians who are armed only with rocks?

Is it a war crime to shoot to kill across a border at civilians who are no real threat?

Will anyone seek to prosecute the Israeli snipers and their officers for these war crimes?

Where is the global outrage against Israel?

Is it silenced by complicit media like CBC? 

I think so. 

So Israel can kill with impunity, and CBC and its American counterparts use only weaponized words to support the killing.

CBC - More on Gaza Events

The excessive use of force by Israel is so obvious it is starring everyone in the face, but the only reference to this in the article is one of the many (excessive) quotes from Israeli sources, General Maneli, who says there was no excessive use of force.

But Maneli inadvertently revealed a FACT that should have been highlighted. The killings were targeted on young men. So it was the Israeli snipers who were killing young men who were throwing rocks.

This was cold blooded murder of desperate young men who were throwing rocks at soldiers who were imposing misery on them. This is the story. Where is CBC with this story?

Why does CBC not emphasize the FACT that the Palestinians were mostly protesting non-violently, that they had ever right in the world to protest their misery, and that what Israel fears is not an invasion from Gaza, but world recognition of Israel's crimes.

The people of Gaza are suffering and they are risking their lives and safety to bring this to the attention to the world, but Zionist-controlled media, like CBC will prevent their protests from achieving its goal.

Israel snipers are killing children wantonly, and with its complicity, CBC is killing them as well. CBC is using weaponized words. As Canadians we should be ashamed that our national broadcaster is so corrupted by foreign interests.

Sickening CBC coverage

CBC's reporting on Israel reached a new low today with this article:

At least 15 killed as Gaza-Israel border protest turns deadly

'Right of return' mass sit-in organized by Hamas escalated into rock-slinging, tear gas firing

Why is CBC using the passive voice and not clearly stating that Israeli soldiers killed 15 protestors? This wording leaves open the possibility that there were injuries on both sides, when the reality was zero injuries for Israelis and hundreds for Palestinians.

Also why does the sub-title focus on rock-slinging? The reality is that the rock slinging was minor compared to the lethal, murderous violence carried out by the Israeli side. The sub-heading should have said that Israel's response to the protests was excessive and murderous, and intentionally so.

The article said Israel was "hoping to deter breaches of the border fence." This is nonsense. Israel killed wantonly to try to scare Palestinians away from carrying out their legitimate right of protest against their oppression. There was exactly zero threat to Israel and the border fence. The killing was intentionally designed to discourage further protests and NO other reason.

The article refers on several occasions to "wars" between Hamas and Israel in the past. These were not "wars" and calling them that is pure Zionist double talk. In each case they were little better than israeli massacres. By repeated references to these so-called wars, CBC is pretending that Israel actually was justified in killing these demonstrators because of the "war" situation. Disgusting. 

Note the use of language in the article: CBC wrote that the event was on the anniversary of what the Palestinians call "their 'nakba'". Note "their" not "the", and Nakba surrounded by scare quotes and not capitalized. Would CBC ever dream of writing about the Holocaust, describing it for the Jewish people as "their 'holocaust'". CBC is so Zionist and unbalanced as to be a shame for all Canadians.

And CBC loves to quote Israelis, even when they are spouting absolute nonsense, like the Israel ambassador calling the protests "a violent terror-gathering". By what definition of terrorism does this qualify as terrorist? This claim is so absurd that it does not deserve to be repeated.

What needed to be written and repeated often is the fact that no Israelis were injured, there was no need to do all this killing, and that Israel needs to be censured by Canada and the world community for this travesty. There is nothing about this in this article.

Israel Punishes Another one of its Victims

Perhaps we should now accuse CBC of being anti-semitic for publishing this article:

Teenage girl accused of slapping Israeli soldier accepts 8-month sentence, report says

Plea deal with prosecutors reported for Ahed Tamimi, who became a celebrated figure to Palestinians

This article reveals how disgusting Israeli behaviour is, and of course, anything that makes Israel look bad is anti-semitic. Just saying the truth about Israel is denounced as anti-semitic every day of the week, so it looks like CBC is anti-semitic.

However it looks like CBC is still covering up for Israel. They do not mention that the Israeli soldiers are occupiers who invaded her home and had just seriously wounded her cousin. CBC treats as normal and acceptable the movements of Israeli soldiers in the occupied territories, so that any assault on one of these criminals is obviously not normal and must be punished.

CBC never hesitates to stick unnecessary qualifiers in front of nouns, like "Russian-supported separatists in Ukraine" or "Iran-backed Hezbollah", why does CBC not add "Occupying Israeli soldier"???

And Ahed Tamimi is not only a hero to Palestinians as stated in the sub-headline. She is a hero to all decent-minded people everywhere in the world. Why doesn't CBC give her the hero's treatment she deserves???
