    While we wait for a current count of all the Palestinian contributions to peace mankind & civilization, let us now turn to another burning issue, that of Israel's "slow but steady" GENOCIDE of the noble peace loving, life loving Palestinians.


    And for you Zionists who deny it, consider the facts that in 1948 there were approzximately 1.2 million Palestinians living in Israel & today there are just under 6 million of them left.

    Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

    Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.

    OUSTANDING ARTICLE. I agree. Any particular reason why there is no mention whatsoever of Israel's genocide of the Palestinians?

    For genocide to occur doesn't the population of a people have to be significantly lowered? to my understanding the Palestinian population is growing.

    You're not making any sense. But when did you.

    How long will we Americans allow Israel to get away with their brutal treatment of the Palestinians with their damn peace offerings, security fence & land concessions to keep the Palestinians in Israel so Israel can continue to annihilate the Palestinians with their "slow but steady" GENOCIDE?

    Slow-motion genocide is still a war crime:

    "Israel is a serial human rights international law abuser. The UN Human Rights Commission affirms that it violates nearly all 149 articles of the Fourth Geneva Convention that governs the treatment of civilians in war and under occupation and is guilty of grievous war crimes."
