Stop the genocide in Gaza! Palestinian lives matter!

New York City, Oct. 13.

An immense war crime is being carried out by the Israeli apartheid regime that occupies Palestine. Over a million people in northern Gaza have been ordered to evacuate within 24 hours or face being exterminated by a military invasion.

This isn’t a Hollywood movie with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu telling the inhabitants to “get out of Dodge.” Netanyahu wants to carry out another chapter of the 1948 Nakba — meaning catastrophe in Arabic — during which 15,000 Palestinians were murdered, and 531 Palestinian villages were destroyed by Zionists.

In the village of Deir Yassin, the Irgun and Stern Gang Zionist militias killed at least 107 Palestinians on April 9, 1948. Children and the elderly were murdered. 

Some victims were burned to death; others were stood up against a wall and killed by machine guns. Many bodies were thrown down a well.

This was no different than Nazi atrocities like those that wiped out the village of Lidice in the Czech lands or Oradour-sur-Glane in France.

Zionist leaders want to do the same to Gaza, which is the biggest ghetto on earth with 2.2 million inhabitants. Half of them are children under 18.

Half of the Gazans in this immensely crowded prison have now been ordered to flee to the southern portion of the ghetto within 24 hours.

Already a third of a million people have been made homeless, and over 2,000 people killed by Zionist bombs. Entire families have been buried in rubble. The Jabalia refugee camp, home to 116,000 people, was destroyed.

These war crimes are in revenge for the Al-Aqsa Flood uprising that showed that the apartheid regime is not invincible. The Zionist state is carrying out collective punishment, which is banned by international law.

Hospitals turned into morgues

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant called Palestinians “human animals.” That’s the language of genocide.

Gallant announced on Oct. 9 a “complete siege” of Gaza, which has a population of over 2 million. He declared, “No electricity, no food, no water, no fuel – everything is closed.”

That means when hospitals run out of fuel in a few days, babies will die in cut-off incubators. So will the elderly and disabled who are attached to life-saving machines. 

The International Committee of the Red Cross said that hospitals will turn into morgues. Israel refuses to allow anyone to escape.

The Zionist regime intends to kill thousands in Gaza and drive the rest into Egypt. This is part of a long-standing plan to expel all Arabs — the Indigenous inhabitants — from Palestine.

None of these crimes would be possible without the Pentagon’s support and $158 billion in U.S. aid. This wasn’t charity. Israel is a Ku Klux Klan ready to intervene to preserve Big Oil’s rule in Western Asia.

For Wall Street as well as older colonial powers like Britain and France — whose immense wealth began with the African Holocaust — Israel represents the open colonial rule that they want to restore.

Humiliated by Niger and other African countries, France is supporting the Zionist settler state and banning demonstrations in defense of Palestine. Fox News and other ruling class elements want to do the same in the United States.

We won’t let them! Poor and working people in the U.S. have no interest in propping up the racist state of Israel.

We need to come out in larger and larger numbers to support the Palestinian people.

Stop the genocide in Gaza! Palestine will win!
