Russia: Global Coverup of Israeli killing of unarmed Palestinians must stop – Corbyn

… from Sputnik News, Moscow 


[ Editor’s Note: I am sad to say that Corbyn is the lone choir boy political person taking the lead on standing up to what may be Israel’s most rogue nation act in some time.


Boris the clown Johnson has dug himself into a deeper hole by lashing out today, on good advice to try to bully Corbyn down, calling him “the Kremlin’s useful idiot”, a term I would not has suggest Boris to use, due to its boomerang potential.


Boris also used the term “infantile leftist background”, and “infantile” move on his part as he has insulted the entire political back bench, those not on the Israeli payroll who also were on the “blame Russia” train with zero evidence from day one.


This was a rash move by Boris, the kind of act that PR pros would have suggested, to do on the offense to the other guy on defense. Britain has the EU countries it snookered to get them aboard, as they will want Britain’s version to win, so as to save themselves looking like they sold their foreign policy decision on this scandal at for flea market prices Jim W.

UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday hit out at Israel over the killing of at least 27 unarmed Palestinian protesters during rallies on the Gaza border and criticized international powers for silencing what he describes as an ‘outrage.’

At a rally outside Downing Street in London, Corbyn criticized “the silence from international powers” about “illegal and inhumane” actions by Israel and demanded that UK Prime Minister Theresa May backs the United Nation’s call for an independent international inquiry into reports that Israeli soldiers fired “live ammunition into crowds of unarmed civilians.”

He also suggested that the UK government must review the sale of arms that could be used — particularly by Israel — “in violation of international law.”

The remarks came after Israeli troops on Friday opened fire from across the border between Israel and Gaza, killing at least nine unarmed Palestinians — including a journalist — and wounding hundreds more in the second mass protest in eight days, raising the death toll since last week’s major outbreak that saw 18 Palestinians killed protesting a border blockade of territories seized by Israel in 1948.

Israel’s response to the protests has drawn international criticism, with human rights groups saying it involved demonstrators being shot as they prayed, walked empty-handed toward the border fence, or simply held up a Palestinian flag.

“The killing and wounding of yet more unarmed Palestinian protesters yesterday by Israeli forces in Gaza is an outrage,” Corbyn said, pointing out that over two thirds of those living in the Gaza Strip are “stateless refugees” reliant on humanitarian assistance who “have a right to protest against their appalling conditions and the continuing blockade and occupation of Palestinian land, and in support of their right to return to their homes and their right to self-determination.”

According to reports in the Israeli media, Israel Defence Force (IDF) rules of engagement allow live fire to be used against anyone approaching the fence.

UN human rights spokeswoman Elizabeth Throssell has implied that the shootings are a willful killing of civilians — a breach of the Geneva Conventions.

For the second consecutive week, the US blocked a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution calling for an investigation into recent killings.

  1. As I don’t believe in coincidence the reports coming in about the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza there were reports here of Trump sending our troops to the Mexican border. I couldn’t help thinking the same fate may greet the caravan of 1500 approaching the US border from Mexico. I am not a fan of immigration, at least not forced type were witnessing now, but so much of it seems staged whether here or in Europe. Someone is paying the transportation costs and, whoever they are they ain’t our friends.
    My thoughts are with Jeremy Corbyn he has a tough road ahead. The good news is his adversaries like Boris Johnson are complete morons who I suspect Israel purchased on the cheap.
    With photos of British CWs manufactured in Skripals backyard at Porton Downs turning up in the suburbs of Damascas, it isn’t hard to put the entire puzzle together. Is it? Maybe the truth will prevail. Maybe miracles do happen.

  2. Syria ransoms their POWs probably with a non disclosure. The world will not know the truth of what is happening so it is still open season for the perps. I am hearing the MSM reports here in US..If the public
    Had the truth rubbed in their face would it be the turning point? Previous article states ransoming captives has been on going. Is the ransom money being applied to Syria’s defense?. Is it going into some ones pockets? Why
    Isn’t Syria exposing this stuff?.

  3. It is a perverted use of the phrase “rules of engagement”. That is not what this is. It is more accurately called a “illegal policy of indiscriminate enforcement”. There is no rule, when firing on unarmed anybody. It is not a rule.
    Lawlessness does not have rules, that is why they call it lawless. Unarmed civilians do not constitute an active battle field. See, the right worries about their guns, when this is what they should be concerned about, because these policies are about 1 inch from being implemented in the US. again, because they have in the past. Ambassadors should be expelled and all arms sales and monetary support cut off. Otherwise the US is complicit.
