What is happening in Gaza now is a genocide. Let us not mince words. A population of more than two million people is being systematically bombed, murdered, starved, deprived of medical care and driven from their homes.
Each day there are new atrocities, new war crimes. This week, the bombing of the Jabalia refugee camp, for three days in a row, has killed nearly 200 people.
Today, IDF planes carried out another bombing of the Bureij refugee camp. The camp is located south of the evacuation line, exposing the lie that Palestinians evacuating the north would be “safe.” The Israeli military also targeted a UN school that is housing thousands of refugees and children, including many orphans, with white phosphorus weapons that are illegal under international law.
The death toll is now over 9,000, including nearly 3,700 children and 2,300 women. Every 10 minutes, a child in Palestine is murdered. Since October 7, more than 25,000 tons of explosives have been dropped on the Gaza Strip, which has an area approximately equal to the city of Detroit, 141 square miles. 12,000 tons is also approximately equal to the power of two of the atomic bombs dropped by the United States on Hiroshima.
This monstrous crime is being carried out before the eyes of the whole world. Its perpetrators include not only the Netanyahu government and the fascists that comprise it, but the Biden administration and all the governments of the US-NATO axis.
We indict Biden for war crimes. The Biden administration has rejected a ceasefire. It has declared that there are no “red lines” for Israel’s actions. It has said that it is placing “no conditions” on Israel’s use of American weaponry. It is demanding $105 billion to finance Israel’s genocide and the US-NATO war against Russia.
