Palestinians are paying the price for the UN’s colonial complicity with Israel

The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees was established in December 1949 and commenced its operations in May 1950, supposedly until a solution to what the UN termed “the Palestinian refugee problem” is found.

The UN is complicit in the forced displacement of the Palestinians

Never, ever, trust the UN’s concept of human rights.

Killing Palestinians through useless debate is the international community’s tactic

As Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people unfolds for the entire world to see in real time on social media, world leaders have only managed to debate humanitarian “pauses” rather than a ceasefire.

Humanitarian aid and mass starvation

Zionist attempts at rationalizing Israel’s violence are devoid of any logic.

Israel and its allies seek to annihilate UNRWA and the Palestinian people

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling on South Africa’s legal case about Israel’s genocide against the Palestinians in Gaza is the latest example of normalizing the settler-colonial entity’s existence and its actions.

The EU is both dismissing and endorsing Israel’s genocide

“What we want to do is to build a two-state solution. So let’s talk about it,” EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell stated prior to a meeting in Brussels with Israeli and Palestinian officials.

Killing and banning journalists reveals what Israel wants to conceal

On Monday, Israel’s High Court declared that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) can continue barring foreign journalists from entering Gaza, on the pretext of security concerns.

What the international community’s silence over Israel’s colonial violence has reaped in Gaza

“We cannot let the idea take root that an efficient fight against terrorism implies to flatten Gaza or attack civilian populations indiscriminately,” French President Emmanuel Macron stated a week ago.

Forced transfer, ‘moral imperative’ and colonial contempt

Two op-eds published on Christmas Day, one by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Wall Street Journal, and the other in the Jerusalem Post by Joel Roskin, geologist and geographer at Bar-Ilan University, both point towards the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Gaza.

Netanyahu hints at expanding colonial violence to the Occupied West Bank

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, made an erroneous but revealing statement during Monday’s Knesset meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Security Committee.

The will of the international community has always matched the will of Israel

On November 29, the UN marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, as has been its hypocritical tradition since 1978.

A humanitarian pause and the surge in human rights violations

After much useless public debate over Israel’s alleged right to defend itself the international community regained its footing as the humanitarian paradigm once more comes within reach.

The humanitarian paradigm and the normalization of forced transfer

The despicable diplomacy which is allowing Israel to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians from Gaza is spoken of mainly in terms of the humanitarian pause the new catchphrase that allows the international community to pretend it is invested in Palestinians’ humanitarian well-being.

Nothing about Israel’s existence and actions point towards legitimacy

Israel’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is advising ministers to pay heed to the terminology they use when commenting on the colonial massacre in Gaza to protect Israel’s so-called international legitimacy.

The G7 give Israel the green light for genocide

Israel’s ongoing bombardment of Gaza and the international response to the unfolding colonial violence demonstrates clearly how Palestinians have always been regarded simply as collateral damage both in humanitarian and political terms.

Humanitarian relief for Palestinians is a diplomatic game at the UN

While Israel has certainly damaged its security narrative with its grotesque display of colonial violence in Gaza the international community prefers to walk its own duplicitous road.
