‘Deliberate war crime’: Palestinians decry murder of 21yo female paramedic at Gaza border

Even nurses are fair game to the rabid Zionists

Update: This did not get posted in the run up to my packing to come to Massachusetts for the summer. Usually we would not run something when the news cycle has passed the story by. But I think this young girl could become the face of IDF cruelty, a symbol that is badly needed in a world that accepts Israeli atrocities as the norm.

The family gathering in the Gaza morgue has become routine in Gaza

[ Editor’s Note: I am not going to tell you that the IDF killing of this Palestinian nurse with her hands up in the air while treating wounded will be the straw that breaks the Zionist camel’s back. It isn’t.

And this is not Israel’s fault only, despite the expected US veto against the Security Council vote to condemn the act. There have been plenty of opportunities for the world to sanction Israel, but it will not, so Israel does what it wants with full impunity.

Since the initial cover for murdering Gazans for the crime of all being terrorists, a new spin has emerged for the nurse murder… a bullet ricocheted off the ground and hit Razan Al-Najar squarely in her chest.

This pitiful ploy showed us that the Zios saw they had gone a bit overboard with the terrorist broad-brush claim. You can just imagine if a Jewish nurse had been shot like this anywhere. There would be hell to pay for it.

The protests continue in Gaza. They have nothing to lose but their lives.

In the US, we have a wave of state laws being passed making it illegal to boycott Israel, by twisting the hate laws on the books to classify it as an act of hate. I keep waiting to read about court challenges to this outrage on Constitutional grounds and have seen nothing.

We see no polls being published about how the public views this, nor college campus protests taking on the establishment for doing nothing on this flagrant attack on the right to protest and free speech.

We are getting close to the point of having to ask “is such a people who take this so meekly, are they deserving of being free, when it is being done not by an occupation army but their own legislatures”? It’s one hell of a sad day for America Jim W. Dean ]

Burials are quick in Gaza

– First published … June 02, 2018

The killing of a 21-year-old female medical worker during the Great March of Return at the Gaza border is nothing short of a war crime, Palestinian officials said, calling on the international community to hold Israel responsible.

The murder of 21-year-old medical volunteer, Razan Al-Najar, is a direct violation of all “international treaties and conventions” that ensure the protection of the medical staff in the conflict zones, Palestinian Minister of Health, Jawad Awwad, said late Friday, noting that the shooting of the paramedic must have been “deliberate” and amounted to a “war crime.”

The volunteer was shot in the chest by the Israeli Defense Forces on Friday near the border fence east of Khan Younes, in the southern Gaza Strip, while she was helping wounded Palestinians.

An anonymous witness told Reuters that, at the time of the tragedy, the medical worker wore a white uniform, which clearly distinguished her from the rest of the Palestinian crowd taking part in the 10th weekly Great March of Return protests.

The murder of 21-year-old medical volunteer, Razan Al-Najar, is a direct violation of all “international treaties and conventions” that ensure the protection of the medical staff in the conflict zones, Palestinian Minister of Health, Jawad Awwad, said late Friday, noting that the shooting of the paramedic must have been “deliberate” and amounted to a “war crime.”

The volunteer was shot in the chest by the Israeli Defense Forces on Friday near the border fence east of Khan Younes, in the southern Gaza Strip, while she was helping wounded Palestinians.

An anonymous witness told Reuters that, at the time of the tragedy, the medical worker wore a white uniform, which clearly distinguished her from the rest of the Palestinian crowd taking part in the 10th weekly Great March of Return protests.

Furthermore, the medical volunteer “raised her hands high in a clear way, but Israeli soldiers fired and she was hit in the chest,” the witness told Reuters.

Commenting on the incident to RT, the Israeli military blamed Hamas “terror organization” for igniting violence at the border fence and endangering civilians. At the same time, it defended the actions of the troops, who “operated in accordance with standard operating procedures.” Cases in which civilians are “allegedly killed by IDF fire are thoroughly examined,” the military said in the statement to RT.

Najar became the latest victim of the Israeli crackdown on protesting Palestinians at the Gazan border. More than 100 protesters were injured by Israeli fire, including 40 by live bullets, directed at them by the IDF during the 10th Great March of Return rally. Another four paramedics were among those wounded while helping the injured.

The shooting of a medical worker is a “heinous crime committed by the occupation forces,” the Palestinian Minister of Justice, Ali Abu Diak, said in a statement, calling on the International Criminal Court to document Israeli brutality and to “try leaders, officials, officers, soldiers” and all those who committed “crimes against humanity.”

International humanitarian law affords special protection to medical personnel whose mission is to save lives in conflicts, under four Geneva Conventions of 1949. Article 24 was especially adopted to protect “medical personnel exclusively engaged in the search for, or the collection, transport or treatment of the wounded or sick.”

The West Bank’s ruling Fatah party also condemned the murder of the 21-year-old medic. “This crime…reflects a terrorist fascist mentality that deliberately kills, destroys and persecutes [Palestinians],” spokesman Osama al-Qawasmi said in a statement.

Fatah also condemned Washington’s move on Friday to veto an Arab-backed UN draft resolution which called calling for protective measures for the Palestinians. Qawasmi stressed that the “veto” used by the United States encourages the Jewish State to continue its crimes against the Palestinians.

Over 120 Palestinians have so far been killed since the beginning of the Great March of Return, mainly by live Israeli fire amid the raging protests at the Gaza-Israel border, which began on March 30. Thousands of others have been injured as Israel maintains its right to protect the border by all means necessary.

  1. Was not our entry into WWII about sending a message to prevent such horrors to humans in the future? Today Israel is committing such atrocities and getting away with them while the cowards of the world, including America watch and applaud. Then it was Hitler and Germany. Today it is Netanyahu and Israel. How far will these unindicted war criminals go before the world finally says “No more” and does something like WWIII to stop these war criminals? History repeats itself. Humans are the lowest animal and must be constantly reminded of how to behave toward others especially Israelis who hate their neighbors.

  2. Israel & the Israelis do not care what Goyim thinks and the goy can protest all they want , However what Israel & Israelis worry about is IF the Goy will Block Jewish hands from committing a Crime …… they don’t want to be stopped when they’re well down the way in the Evil Genocide of the Palestinians …….. IF You Feebely Protest sometimes then You’re not an antisemite because some meaninglessness is Permitted …. IF You think of Palestinians as Humans and try to defend them then You’re A Certified AntiSemite …… that’s how these Israelis think …….

    • The most criminally sick people on earth. Even criminals know and acknowledge they’re criminals. Not this breed.

  3. Sometimes a person or a people are so frustrated they have no peace, no allies, no options as if sitting in a vast desert naked without a thing next to them. The truth is the Palestinians have no one but God. He will move on the zionists. He promissed them He would. When? Is up to His Wisdom. One thing is for sure, when He grabs a tyrant after a long spell, He never lets go. Israhell is due for a severe ass kicking. Look for it.

    • Ass Kicking of Israel is way too long overdue but it’s not coming soon enough I mean we are still in the Age where Israel’s Neighbours are Defenseless against Israeli air attacks , Any Nation who can fend off Israeli attacks or Any Nation that can stop IDF Interference is Declared a Danger to the Existance of Israel “
