Analyst: Israeli Regime Seeks to Wipe Out Palestinians in Gaza

A prominent analyst says the brutal Israeli regime is “creating slow genocide” in the besieged Gaza strip, where they intend to “wipe out the Palestinians.”

(TEHRAN Press TV) - “They are now not allowing desalination plants in and water purification plants in and without water you cannot live and the UN report stated that by 2016 that the water in Gaza will be undrinkable and by 2020 the aquifer will be beyond repair,” said Derek Graham a pro-Palestine Irish activist in a Wednesday interview with Press TV.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

    “The UN recently issued a report which was very alarming, probably you have all that I have accounted and that was the fact that Gaza is going to be unlivable by the year 2020. It is very evidence that this five year old siege is crippling all Gazans and every aspect and facets of their lives especially when it comes to, for example, medicine and lack of it,” he added.

On October 20, Israeli forces intercepted Estelle and escorted the vessel to the port of Ashdod. The Tel Aviv regime forces also detained the peace activists. It was the latest of more than a dozen ships that had tried to break the blockade since 2010.

He also pointed out that the Israeli regime has tested illegal weapons on the coastal enclave, which “should not be used in civilian areas but yet the Israelis use them with impunity. It is unjust and they are allowed to do this and get away with it because they have the Americans backing of what they do.”

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

While the Yishuv’s leadership formally accepted the 1947 Partition Resolution, large sections of Israel’s society — including David Ben-Gurion — were opposed to or extremely unhappy with partition and from early on viewed the 1967 war as an ideal opportunity to expand the new state’s borders beyond the UN earmarked partition boundaries and at the expense of the Palestinians. In fact, as early as 1938, [David Ben-Gurion] stated, "After we become a strong force, as a result of the creation of a state, we shall abolish partition and expand into the whole of Palestine." In 1948, Menachem Begin declared, "The partition of the Homeland is illegal. It will never be recognized. The signature of institutions and individuals of the partition agreement is invalid. It will not bind the Jewish people. Jerusalem was and will forever be our capital. Eretz Israel (the land of Israel) will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it. And forever.” (Noam Chomsky, “The Fateful Triangle.”)

Well, the radical Muslim Community vows the destruction of Israel. Every day we hear another so called sheik preaching death to America and Israel. But I guess that's not important enough to make a big deal out of it. It's just Israel, the little Satan. And the Hitler of Iran wants to "wipe Israel off the map". But again, no biggy. Maybe we should give these Muslim terrorists some sensitivity training. Thatsnwhatbour soldiers getting in Afghanistan because of the killing from American troops by Afghan soldiers and police officers. And the UN? There are worse less. They should all pack up and move to France.
