Israel Is Trying To Incite Violence And Break The Gaza Ceasefire

Following the political defeat which was inflicted on Israel’s government by a unified Palestinian movement, Israel was forced into seeking a ceasefire with Gaza’s armed factions, now it is actively working to re-stoke tensions with Gaza.

Last Friday, at 2AM (local time, Palestine), an unconditional ceasefire went into effect between armed groups in Gaza and the Israeli military. So far this ceasefire has held, but is now heading towards another escalation due to constant Israeli provocation and pressure.

Israel, on the first day of the ceasefire, allowed for its armed occupation forces to again enter and attack Palestinian worshippers in Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa compound and has done so several times since. This is key, because the violent raids of al-Aqsa mosque acted as the catalyst for the latest Palestinian uprising against the Israeli regime and sparked armed resistance from the Gaza Strip.

Violent assaults and the prevention of Palestinians from entering the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, whilst allowing illegal Israeli settlers to do so freely, has also stirred tensions greatly. The planned ethnic cleansing of around 550 Palestinians from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in East Jerusalem, also played an integral role in working to escalate tensions with the Palestinian people. The ongoing plans to expel Palestinians and attacks on demonstrators throughout the city, by Israeli forces, again shows the intent to reignite the conflict from the Israeli side.

This Sunday, Israel and Egypt announced a complete closure of all entries and exits to the Gaza Strip. Israel’s Minister of War, Benny Gantz, also stated that he would only permit the entry of the bare minimum of humanitarian goods into the besieged coastal enclave. Gantz also went on to say that the only way the materials to rebuild Gaza and supply those in need could enter Gaza, is if Hamas handed over the bodies of invading occupation soldiers, to the Israelis.

The statement, coming from Benny Gantz, clearly indicates that Israel’s policy is one of collective punishment – an established war crime – and that Israel will not allow goods to enter the Gaza Strip after Israel’s military just displaced over 70,000 people and killed roughly 250. 

The reason Palestinian armed groups keep the bodies of Israeli occupation forces, such as those that they killed during the Israeli invasion of Gaza in 2014, is so that they can get their own dead back from Israel and the release of political prisoners. Israel currently keeps the bodies of hundreds of Palestinians its forces murdered, for no justifiable reason, also incarcerating around 5,000 Palestinians in military prisons. The tactic of kidnapping Israeli soldiers, or taking their bodies from the battlefield, is done by Palestinian armed groups for the strategic purpose of freeing their prisoners who were placed behind bars by a kangaroo court with a near 100% conviction rate, as well as to free the bodies of their own dead (many of them were not even combatants).

Israeli police forces inside what’s known as Israel proper also announced a mass scale arrest campaign against Palestinian citizens of Israel this Sunday. Israel began violently arresting Palestinians in the cities of Lyd, Haifa, Nazareth, Jaffa, Umm Al-Fahm and elsewhere. The aim of the Israeli campaign was stated to amount to the arrests of 500 Palestinian activists, but provided no names and seemed to be arbitrary. Rights groups called the campaign a revenge attack and said it was aimed at providing a show of force against Palestinians who engaged in demonstrations and the national anti-Israel general strike the week before.

The Israeli government has also not allowed for an expansion of the fishing water territories, so that Gaza’s fisherman are unable to go out far enough to catch what is needed. Mock air raids were also launched on Sunday morning over the skies of Gaza’s beaches. The constant buzzing of drones is reported by Gaza’s residents as well, many of which now terrifyingly suspect Israel is planning further attacks on the territory.

In response, so far, we have seen Palestinians in Gaza send flaming objects attached to balloons over the separation fence. The balloons have caused fires in some small areas surrounding Israel’s settler communities.

If Israel continues to provoke Palestinians, attacking the people of Jerusalem and Palestinian citizens of Israel, it is likely that we will see another response from Palestinians. If the response from Palestinian society includes armed attacks, in the form of rockets from Gaza’s armed factions, it must be known that the issue did not begin with rocket fire. The ceasefire has already been broken, arguably, and Israel seems to be setting itself up to declare that all it’s recent violent and disproportionate acts were in “self-defense”, despite Gaza’s armed resistance demonstrably reacting to overt Israeli government violations of international law.

  1. With all the science, math and research, you reject them from WWII and believe what you are told. Researchers of looking underground, the facilities themselves, lack of disposal facilities of any quality and the fact that there were sports, cultural, children’s activities does not dissuade you, and even the write ups from the late 1800s to 1945 of 6 million dead and dying in Russia, Ukraine and Germany, a Kabbalah number and of the Talmud, the fact that 4.5 million survivors in a theatre of less that 6 million, and the chemical research finding no toxic rooms but typhus centers while all the photos were cut and paste from the originals that are available and you all believe and regurgitate the BS of WWII, let alone WWI and the fact that Churchill is on record to finish the job in 1919 and 1931 as well as Rosenvelt’s lies and the stall of the US for Stalin to clean up Poland which the Bolsheviks attacked back in 1919-1922, Holodomor 1933 and Gulags from 1918-1980 does not change the regurgitation of false information. Europe has suffered extreme slaughter from the Slavic states to the Germanic peoples since 1914 and you turned your head then and you barely turn your head now after the massacre of Palestinians since the 1930s. The turning of Afghanistan from a modern country back in the 1970s with no head covers and the same with Iran, only to be run over by US backed mujahideen forces of US, UK, Israeli militaries and Islamic fanatics doesn’t register either.

    You are surprised by an act of genocide, not unlike the US to the indigenous which was even more heinous, as pictures of all living together in peace in Palestine back in the 1900s to 1930s are available.

    Now every institution is a known failure of misinformation by those countries in power and the connection goes through Tel-Aviv . Esau and Amelek must all perish but you choose not to listen and this since the creation of the Septuagint, Talmud and Kabbalah by outspoken Ultra Orthodox Rabbis who find that they are of the light and all else is of Chaos. Now you know what the Dollar bill means and it is not good, nor are those who are behind the levers of power using the Talmudic laws for preference in every aspect of life in the distribution of wealth, power, access and control.

    The Masonic revolutions has brought this world to insanity since the US, Jacobin, Boshevik, Cultural and genocides of all species for money as everything is a resource to be hoarded and not shared with all living things (read the 42 commandments of the Book of the Dead some 700 to thousands of years older than the 10 which are stolen from it).

    Good men don’t stay silent, they are just as much to blame as the Megalomaniacal Psychopaths themselves playing the sycophants of obedient willful ignorance, a grave sin in itself.

  2. When will people finally realize that those Khazarian Ashkenazi, led by ROTHSCHILD want this planet for THEMSELVES.They have even stated that desire

    All that can stop them is FORCE. TALK and PEACEFUL ACTIONS from us will only result in our complete destruction.

    We are dealing with SUPRMACIST Psychopaths :

  3. Stop all aid to Israel and the conflict in the Middle East ends. Hell, the conflicts in the world end.
