It is time someone tells Israel to stop, the international community doesn't seem to be ready to do it, out of guilt for WWII holocaust, among other things. A labor Jew MP whose parents died in the holocaust is telling Israel to stop. The holocaust industry still lives on. For how long ? Until the last Palestinian ? (Thanks Richard)
Israel used white phosphorus in Gaza.
According to the US military, this isn't a problem.
According to Amnesty International, the use of White Phosphorus in civilian areas is a war crime:
When white phosphorus lands on skin it burns deeply through muscle and into the bone, continuing to burn until deprived of oxygen.
Israel says it is going to investigate the use of white phosphorus in Gaza. Thanks but no thanks, as we already know the answer to this investigation.
In my opinion, this story of the use of white phosphorus in civilian areas, although highly disturbing, is a zionist distraction. Because the use of white phosphorus is permitted in certain conditions, the answer to this war crime will never be clear. Israel shelled civilian areas heavily and intentionally as in the case of the UN school, and white phosphorus or not, the whole Israeli offensive on Gaza and the previous blockade is a war crime. Lets not drown into the details provided to us as a smokescreen by Israel. You know what this reminds me of ? It reminds me of the people who negate the Nazi gaz chambers. They often resort to details in order to refute the extermination of Jews. The irony here is that it is the Jewish state who is using the Nazi tactic. And it is not the first time. War crimes have the same pattern, easy to identify, but we prefer to be distracted by details, the reality of this situation and of the whole conflict is so horrible for Palestinians, but we prefer to turn our eyes and let ourselves be distracted by the details...
