Hill Pressclips: Next Stop Genocide

Thank you sharick, understood about the broad brush. For me, the distinctions do remain. With a tiny brush, I do offer my testimony, firsthand, that the Official United Nations and United States Government Sanctions Against Apartheid in South Africa were keys in the peaceful dismantling of the unlawful practices in the region, and of deep meaning to The People I knew whose families were reunited and, at long last, able to live together.

It would seem that, metaphysically at least, that some Israeli’s don’t seem to have managed to escape that demonic spirit that created and ran concentration camps. Perhaps that communal trauma was too damaging to overcome, and Israel is in danger of becoming “the abyss”. Being from another place and experience of intercommunal conflict, killing or depopulating the homes and places of the other, under any circumstances of war, only serves to create visceral and intergenerational hatred which forms the future cycles of violence. There appears to be no role for empathy or compassion in either direction. Yet at some point, someone(s) will need to go there, to some degree, in order to halt and reverse continual devastation and to exorcise the demons of history from their respective psyches. If such were done in collaboration, supporting each other across the divide, a peace, internal first, and communally thereafter, may be possible. But that wont be won in a top-down manner, but by those who live closest to each other and who are most at risk. regardless of the politics.

Two video reports from the ground: (1) Bisan, age 25, a journalist in northern Gaza who broadcasts every day despite internet and electricity blackouts; and (2) Footage from a UN school sheltering refugees in Jabalia.

Bisan is living through an active genocide. When she was told by the Israelis to leave northern Gaza, she refused. She stayed:

Unsubstantiated assertions inundating the media regarding Hamas using Al-Shifa hospital as a military headquarters is reminiscent of the intelligence deceptions which led up to the US invasion of Iraq.
