Israeli “Staatspolizei” Carry out Summary Executions in Jerusalem

Meanwhile, the continued silence from Britain, the EU and the US, becomes ever louder notwithstanding that Israel is now murdering unarmed Palestinians daily.  Death toll last week stood at 72, including 12 children, two infants and a pregnant woman

‘Tension has surged amid resentment over Israeli settlements and the incursions into Al-­Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site for Muslims.

Rights groups have slammed Israel for its harsh measures as it continues to crack down on Palestinians.’ This week, Amnesty International warned Israeli forces to end its “pattern of unlawful killings. In some cases, Israeli forces appear to have ripped up the rulebook and resorted to extreme and unlawful measures,” the group said. “They seem increasingly prone to using lethal force against anyone they perceive as posing a threat, without ensuring that the threat is real.”

The root cause of the violence is Israel’s continuing illegal occupation and settlement in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and the violent dispossession of the indigenous population by armed troops and settlers.

The international community needs to apply pressure on Israel to conform to international law and repatriate all its settlers back to their own homes in Israel, if there is ever going to be peace. Failing which, the world will need to accept that there will eventuality be an uprising that will inevitably escalate to a much wider conflict that will impact Europe as well as the Middle East.

That will be the tragic consequence of the current appeasement policy, by the European Union, of Binyamin Netanyahu’s illegal colonisation agenda and of the supply of yet more arms to the Israeli government, which colludes in enforcing the illegal occupation.
