In the latest episode of the “Why don’t you pay for these war crimes?” series, “Why do we care about them?”, I examine why we don’t pay for Israel’s crimes and crimes against humanity.
In this case, I examine the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, the denial of basic human rights to Palestinians and the systematic, planned, and sustained discrimination of Palestinians in Israeli society.
The Israeli occupation is the largest occupying power on earth and has occupied the entire landmass of the Middle East.
Its purpose is to achieve control of the Palestinian people and its goal is to make a Jewish state of Israel.
In the process of implementing its plan, Israel has imposed upon the Palestinian population its most severe forms of oppression, including the denial and destruction of the basic human right to self-determination, the prohibition of the exercise of Palestinian civil and political rights, the systematic denial of the rights of women, and the destruction of Palestinian infrastructure, including water and electricity.
These violations are designed to keep Palestinians in poverty and keep the population impoverished.
Israel has been the world’s largest exporter of illegal Israeli goods and has engaged in war crimes, crimes against peace and crimes of genocide.
