Human Rights, Abuses & Poverty

Leading Israeli Politician Calls For Palestinian Concentration Camps (Aug 2014)
Moshe FeiglinMoshe Feiglin, Deputy Speaker of the Israeli Knesset and member of Netanyahu's ruling Likud Party, has posted a message on his Facebook page calling for concentration camps in Gaza and "the conquest of the entire Gaza Strip, and annihilation of all fighting forces and their supporters". This is a direct incitement to genocide and war crimes, an incitement that should outrage all non-sociopathic human beings. But remarkably, that post so far has 10,000 likes?? Facebook will take down posts it does not feel are appropriate to its values, but a call for ethnic cleansing seems not to worry its administrators. It is time for the US to stop sending billions of dollars in aid to Israel every year, donations that are funding the very ethic cleansing and war crimes that Obama pretends to be shocked about. Without American support, Israel would have to learn diplomacy rather than sorting every problem out with the barrel of a gun or the bomb bay of an aircraft. The war crimes we are seeing in Gaza are what happens when one side has a massive military advantage. Murdering Palestinians is like shooting fish in a barrel. If you care about humanity, you must speak out.
