The Ukraine Precedent – Genocide Coming to Gaza

The Ukraine Precedent - Genocide Coming to Gaza

“He was looking upon the funeral pyre of a world— upon the radioactive aftermath of Armageddon. Across a quarter of a million miles of space, the glow of dying atoms was still visible, a perennial reminder of the ruinous past.” – Narrator, “If I Forget Thee, O Earth” by Athur C. Clarke

In recent days, Israel has been under attack from Hamas, Palestinian militants, and other groups on several fronts. Sadly, hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent civilians have already been killed. And, as usual, the political forces that thrive on such conflicts wriggle and squirm to ensure their plans are successful. Many experts agree that this attack will justify the Israelis practicing genocide to erase the millions living in the Gaza open-air prison. And the people watching are convinced this, and the Western war on Russia, are the opening acts of the end of days.

For Israel, it’s a prime time to go ahead and exterminate the Palestinians. For Iran, this is a chance for the emerging multipolar world to reclaim lost influence and title. As for the United States and her European allies, all the recent conflicts are carefully planned and carried out on the order of the liberal elites running things. However, those willing to reason beyond propaganda could all have anticipated this. Ukraine, the Israel/Palestinian flareup, the media spin about atrocious Hamas and “inhuman” missile attacks launched personally by Vladimir Putin, it’s all a jumble of distraction and lies.

Note how CNN and other media outlets emboss Putin and the Russians with the term “inhuman.” The mission is to dehumanize the enemy and victims in many cases and make it okay to murder them. Meanwhile, in the West, the media and the politicians run by Zionists rationalize the indiscriminate killing of the civilian population. A missile strike in the village of Hroza, near Kharkiv, Ukraine, is more horrendous, inhuman, cruel, and devastating than Israel, blowing tens of thousands of Palestinians to pieces in retribution. It’s bitterly ironic that if Russia steps in to end the genocide that has gone on in the separated Eastern provinces of Ukraine, it’s more “inhuman” than what Israel or the United States regularly does.

More than 14,000 have been blasted to bits in Donetsk and surrounds since the Euromaidan coup that put America and a new breed of Nazis in charge of the Russian steppe (see Pontic–Caspian Steppe). Zionist and technocrat-owned media in the West never reported about it in this way, but real human beings suffered and died for years. They were not sub-human, and neither are the Palestinians. Every Russian engagement is done by Slavic barbarians worse than the Mongol hordes, and anything Israel does is by the will of Jehova and Allah. Big truths, such as Iskander missiles having optically guided warheads, escape the public eye. The fact that the missile is capable of hitting a small window from many tens of kilometers away means that a high-value target was struck at Hroza. And there is no word about what high-ranking Ukrainian, NATO, or CIA espionage actor might have merited a precision strike on a café.

A few numbers will add context to my argument. For instance, between 2008 and 2020, 5,600 Palestinians died, and over 115,000 were injured. During this same timeframe, 250 Israelis died, and 5,600 were wounded. Violence was exceptionally high in 2014 when Israel conducted Operation Protective Edge in Gaza in response to the kidnapping and murder of three teenagers. The campaign lasted seven weeks and resulted in more than 2,000 deaths, most of which were Gazan. Next, when major protests erupted in 2018 along the Israel-Gaza border, more than 28,000 Palestinians were injured. We’ve all seen the footage of Israeli snipers blowing the legs off Palestinian kids and laughing about it.

Now, imagine Russia as brazenly brutal and inhuman as Israel has been in defense of its people and territory. What if the Russians had in “Protective Edge” fashion when Ukraine SBU operators blew up philosopher Alexander Duggan’s daughter Darya in her father’s car? If Israel’s sweet cutthroats led Russia, Kyiv would be a pile of rubble with a fence around it by now. But the 0.2% of the world call the game, I hope you all see. Netanyahu declares a state of war over the latest incursion, and a U.S. fleet is headed for Israel. And while we are on the subject of my country, let’s not forget that over a million Iraqis lost their lives over a vile of talcum powder held by then Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Some 7,000 U.S. troops were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with more than 8,000 contractors, until today. A recent report from Brown University puts the overall death toll for the wars and conflicts that have reverberated since 9/11 at 4.6 million and rising. This figure considers “our” fingers in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen conflicts. Furthermore, by the time Ukraine puppet Zelensky finishes off that country’s last citizen fighting for NATO, the numbers from Brown will need to be ticked up a million or more.

Meanwhile, well-educated journalists say the Russians and their leader are inhuman barbarians. The penned-up Palestinians living in hell on Earth are the arch-villains because of third parties with an agenda. Because Israel has a right to exist no matter who or how many die. And while I am on this point, it’s ludicrous to think that the Western world cannot understand Russia’s right to exist. No one in leadership can put the shoe on the other foot. Turning the tables and imagining a North Korean regime taking over Mexico or Poland is unthinkable. In reality, as we all know, the Washington, London, Brussels, and Berlin elites know how war would rage if NATO were pushed back into a hole. And in America, as long as somebody else’s children are blown to pieces, everything is kosher (pun intended).

Understand me. The innocent Israelis who died or were wounded in this catastrophic attack are the sad victims of powerful people unrelenting in their inhumanity. And the majority of those are not Russian, Palestinian, Arab, or Muslim. The root causes of this and other conflicts emanate from the same seats of power they always have: Buckingham Palace and Whitehall, Washington, and Wall Street, and the elites clustered around Luxembourg banks.

As I type this, the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, commented on his “X” platform about Europe’s Arab population not accepting the EU’s support of Israel: “If current trends continue, civil war in Europe is inevitable.” Reuters reported this morning that Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant has pledged to escalate its war against Hamas with a ground offensive into Gaza. Gallant threatened that “What was Gaza will no longer be.” The implications are crystal clear: the Israelis intend to exterminate however many Palestinians they feel is necessary to scatter them to the four winds and take possession of the Gaza Strip.

There are reports of rescue and emergency workers being blocked from reaching the injured, and hospitals are forced to operate without electricity since the Israelis cut electrical and fuel supplies to the more than 2 million living there. Only five days in, over 260,000 people are displaced in Gaza, and the death toll is rising quickly as Israel’s IDF intensifies air assaults in preparation for a ground force incursion. Israeli forces have already used internationally banned white phosphorus to destroy Palestinian neighborhoods in Gaza.

A final update before we go to post on this story. Across the border in Jordan, tens of thousands have taken to the streets in support of the Palestinians, according to reports via “X” and Telegram. Meanwhile, a second U.S. carrier group is reportedly headed to the region. The stage is being set for the unthinkable. Yesterday, a longtime colleague from the United States messaged me for my thoughts on the situation. He believes these events are right out of the Bible. Neither he nor I envisioned Armageddon taking place during our lifetimes. All we can be sure of at this point is that no matter what happens to the human race, every record from the Western countries will blame it on Putin and Russia. Most of us believe that if it all comes down to ending civilization, God will be sorting us all out, not the White House.
