According to a report in Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper today the IDF are considering cutting off water and electricity supplies to the civilian population in the Gaza Strip as a measure against the Palestinian launching of Qassam rocket attacks on Israel.
For the IDF to counter Qassam attacks by firing at those that are launching the rocket attacks is one thing; however, to counter the rocket attacks by punishing an entire civilian population is a war crime. The crime that is about to be committed on the Gazan people by the Israelis is a crime that the people of the world should be outraged about.
This is the next stage in Israel’s war against the Palestinian people whereby, as I predicted in my 19 June post on this blog, the Israelis will bring such pressure to bear on the Gazan people that they will be forced to leave if provided an opportunity. The ethnic cleansing of the Gaza Strip continues. I can only repeat what I wrote before; the world needs to act and act now before disaster strikes the Palestinian people of the Gaza.
