Week in Review: "Deadliest Violence in Gaza" Edition, Mar 16th
We take a special look at the events surrounding the deadliest escalation of violence between militant groups in Gaza and Israel since the 2008 Gaza War in this week's review of the top #Palestine stories.
- It is not a cycle of violence in occupied Palestine: a cycle has no beginning and end. A line of violence has a beginning and end: it began with the creation of Israel and will end with the demise of Israel. How many US media pointed out that the recent chapter of violence began with Israel which assassinated a Palestinian local leader in Gaza?
- While army sources took care to point out al-Qaissi’s alleged involvement in the August 2011 incident, his assassination wasn’t just an act of punishment. No, Israel killed him on the basis of secret evidence – evidence that is not subject to legal or judicial review – that supposedly proves that al-Qaissi was planning a terror attack. Never mind that the Israeli supreme court’s December 2006 ruling placed numerous restrictions on such assassinations
- The lesson the Palestinian resistance groups should learn is that the Egyptian-sponsored truce, which managed to stop the aggression and the assassinations, is temporary. The resistance groups should prepare for another round, which might be tougher and bloodier, with an [Israeli government] that does not care about any ethical or humanitarian values... The Palestinian people will not rely on this truce. They do not trust the Israeli occupation and they have a bitter experience of it.
