Nuclear powered impunity means they always “get away with murder”

Ben-Gurion and Sharon to Netanyahu ─ More than six decades “international community” aides, endorses elimination of a people

Editing by Carolyn Bennett

Canadian economist and academic Michel Chossudovsky is a signatory of the Kuala Lumpur declaration to criminalize war and the author of The Globalization of Poverty and The New World Order (2003), America’s ‘War on Terrorism’ (2005), and Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War (2011).This week he was writing at Global Research on the latest carnage in the Occupied Territories.

“We are not dealing with an isolated event,” Michel Chossudovsky writes. “The invasion of Gaza is part of the broader U.S.-NATO-Israel military agenda.” 

Broader Middle East War

“The attack on Gaza must be understood in relation to the broader Middle East war,” he says.

“The Israeli attack was approved by [U.S. President Barack] Obama. It has a direct bearing on U.S.-NATO-Israeli pans for war pertaining to Lebanon, Syria and Iran.

“The timing is of utmost significance: one week following the U.S. presidential elections. ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud’ is a deliberate act of provocation, intended to lead to military escalation.”
Bitter irony

On November 14, Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari was murdered in an Israeli missile attack. In a bitter irony, barely a few hours before the attack, Hamas had received the draft proposal of a permanent truce agreement with Israel.”

The firing of dozens of rockets by Hamas against Israel came after the Israeli attacks, Chossudovsky reports.

Self-fulfilling prophesy
circular propaganda
Manufacturing War - Creating and labeling “terrorists”

Rafah Crossing
“Palestine’s response was known to Israeli war planners and the resulting Israeli civilian casualties are now being used to justify military escalation on humanitarian grounds.

“What we are dealing with is a carefully planned operation, a clear act of provocation. The deaths of Israeli civilians (envisaged and foreseen by IDF military planners) are being used to muster the support of the Israeli public.
“Meanwhile, the Israeli attack is casually portrayed by the Western media as part of a legitimate counter-terrorism agenda.

Child's home
“The Obama administration is blaming the victims of Israeli atrocities. The victims are portrayed as terrorists.’” 

Background: The IDF or Israel Defense Forces or ‘The Army of Defense for Israel’ consists of ground forces, air force and navy, the military forces of the State of Israel. Headed by its Chief of General Staff, the Ramatkal, subordinate to the Defense Minister of Israel. The IDF is the sole military wing of the Israeli security forces, and has no civilian jurisdiction within Israel.

The IDF has served as Israel’s armed forces in all the country’s major military operations.
The number of wars and border conflicts in which it has engaged has made it “one of the most battle-trained armed forces in the world.”

Originally the IDF operated on three fronts: against Lebanon and Syria in the north, Jordan and Iraq in the east, and Egypt in the south. After the 1979 Egyptian–Israeli Peace Treaty, the IDF has concentrated its activities in southern Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories, including the First and the Second Intifada.

The Israel Defense Forces was officially established ─ comprised of a conscript army formed out of the paramilitary group Haganah, incorporating the militant groups Irgun and Lehi ─ on orders of Defense Minister David Ben-Gurion on May 26, 1948.

Ariel Sharon, Israel’s 11th Prime Minister, was a commander in the Israeli Army from its inception in 1948.
Operation flashback
Planned Humanitarian Disaster: Massacre in Palestine

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State (tenure February 13, 2007 – January 20, 2009) John Negroponte on December 8, 2008 “was in Tel Aviv for discussions with his Israeli counterparts.” Included in the meetings was Meir Dagan, the director of Israel’s national intelligence agency, Mossad, Chossudovsky recalls.

‘Operation Cast Lead,’ the December 27, 2008– January 18, 2009 war on Gaza that left more than a thousand Palestinians dead, “was initiated two days after Christmas and was coupled with a carefully designed international Public Relations campaign under the auspices of Israel’s Foreign Ministry.

“Hamas’ military targets [were] not the main objective; ‘Operation Cast Lead’ [was] intended, quite deliberately, to trigger civilian casualties. What we [were] dealing with [was] a ‘planned humanitarian disaster’ in Gaza, in a densely populated urban area.”

Chossudovsky continues documenting a historical design of calculated genocide and removal that has been escalating for more than 60 years.
Expulsion was referred to by Ariel Sharon as ‘a 1948 style solution.’
Referencing Tanya Reinhart’s “Evil Unleashed, Israel’s move to destroy the Palestinian Authority is a calculated plan, long in the making,” Global Research, December 2001, he writes:

For Sharon ‘it is only necessary to find another state for the Palestinians ─ Jordan is Palestine – was the phrase that Sharon coined.’
