Hamas must pay a dear price for taking the lives of innocent Israeli children. It is unimaginable, for any decent person, to think that such an organization has the right to exist after what it has savagely done. However, when extremists on both sides are killing innocent children, who will hold Benjamin Netanyahu accountable for crimes against humanity? According to BBC, Netanyahu’s Air Force bombed the very same roads it told Palestinians were safe to use as they escaped, which resulted in the deaths of many innocent Palestinian children.
When the IDF kills innocent civilians indiscriminately, the world community must voice its concerns loudly to stop the extremists running the Israeli government from thinking they have a green light to commit the same atrocities as Hamas has. President Biden must stand up and voice those concerns, if not publicly, then privately.
When Israel greenlights a road for families to escape through, then it bombs that same road, those who ordered the bombing are as barbaric as Hamas has been. Unless, Israeli actions are all about revenge, instead of self-protection.
The IDF has remained silent on why they bombed the “safe roads”.
EXTREME VIOLENCE BEGETS MORE EXTREME VIOLENCE
Israel needs new and wiser leadership to lower the temperature when it comes to the aggressive tactics of Israeli settlers trying to occupy all the West Bank. Inch by inch. There is a point at which Palestinians are going to revolt. Some more violently than others, as we witnessed last week.
The extreme right in Israel, now choke holding the Israeli government, wants to kick all the Palestinians out of the West Bank. The same extremists expect them to roll over and let them have their homes and lands. How realistic is this scenario? Do any of the extremist Israeli settlers believe there is no price to pay for this strategy? Grant you that killing innocent civilians can never be tolerated, but the settlers should have better calculated the costs of their actions and strategy of occupying the West Bank, little by little.
No one wins when innocent civilians die needlessly. Not deliberately as Hamas has done, and not as the IDF is doing now, by tricking Palestinian families just to target them. The IDF has remained silent on why they bombed the “safe roads”.
He [Netanyahu] might lose his job after this tragic war, and he is exacting a steep price on all Palestinians, to include women and children, just before his career ends up burning in flames.
WHO IS HOLDING NETANYAHU ACCOUNTABLE FOR TARGETING CIVILIANS?
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is exacting revenge not only on Hamas for attacking Israel, but on the Palestinian people as well. The indiscriminate leveling of Gaza, which is killing Palestinian children, is a war crime. It’s against international law. But who will hold Netanyahu responsible for those crimes against humanity?
Not the United States, and certainly not the United Nations. This leaves countries surrounding Israel that responsibility, which might also mean more violence in the future. For wiser leaders around the world not to see this scenario metastasize into reality, be it by Hezbollah, or Gulf countries who will feel the pressure to abandon all hopes of normalizing their relations with Israel, is absurdly illogical.
Rather than open pressure, just as Congress communicated when 55 democrats signed a letter asking Netanyahu to respect international law, Biden may, through unrevealed direct phone calls, pressure Israel to avoid killing civilians in Gaza. He has the leverage.
However, from the looks of it, it seems Netanyahu is listening to no one. He might lose his job after this tragic war, and he is exacting a steep price on all Palestinians, to include women and children, just before his career ends up burning in flames.
