Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Launching Invasion, Then Promptly Retracts!

Source: Washington Post May 2014

  • The machinations of US+NATO in Ukraine is about provoking Russia into war! Putin has a choice: fight US+NATO in enemy territory ie. Ukraine now or fight them on Russian soil later! It is not a choice between War or Peace. It is a choice of war now in Ukraine or war later on Russian soil. The only question is timing!
  • Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Launching Invasion, Then Promptly Retracts! 
    by Tyler Durden,, 28 Aug 2014
    It has been a busy morning: following a substantial surge in Ukraine separatist activity in the past 24 hours, which saw them capture the strategic Sea of Azov port town of Novoazovsk, a move which the NYT classified as “Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front“, Ukraine has turned on the disinformation spigot to max resulting in a constant verbal, and headline, diarrhea as follows:



    So sure was Ukraine that this time (unlike all those previous disinformation launches) Russia has invaded that Anton Herashchenko, adviser to Ukrainian Interior Ministry, actually commented on his Facebook page saying “Invasion of regular Russian army of Putin to Ukraine is an accomplished fact,” Adding that Putin “de-facto places Ukraine on a war-footing at a time when a decree was signed to dissolve parliament.”
    But where things once again got surreal, making everyone not only laugh but wonder how the CIA has lost the plotline so badly, was the following “clarification” headline from Reuters, which noticed some rather substantial change in the language on the website of the Ukraine president:


    Indeed, instead of explicitly saying a “Russian military invasion has taken place”, the website now reads: “I have made a decision to cancel my working visit to the Republic of Turkey due to sharp aggravation of the situation in Donetsk region, particularly in Amvrosiivka and Starobeshevo, as Russian troops were actually brought into Ukraine,” the President noted.

The Road To World War 3: Russia And Ukraine Are Now Engaged In A Shooting War!?


  • Michael Snyder has a very good website. He is a straight shooter. I am not sure how accurate his feedback in this article is though. However, it is naïve to assume that Putin is simply letting the Ukrainian military massacre ethnic Russians in East Ukraine without doing something covertly ie. via private military/mercenary contractors. This article suggests it is now the direct involvement of the Russian army.
  • I do not buy the ‘news’ that the Ukraine army is winning in East Ukraine. The recent surrender of about 400 of their special forces to Russia, suggest otherwise. The fog of war will clear up quickly in the next few days or week. When the Russian Bear really decides to move, I seriously doubt it will be quietly! Remember: the Russians know they will be fighting NATO! The Ukraine army will be overwhelmed and over run! The Russians will go DEFCON-1 throughout Russia. All “guns” alert and ready to fire. All forces on Nuclear War Alert because NATO will respond! Will it be nuclear? Will it be limited to Eastern Europe? We should know soon!
  • The Road To World War 3: Russia And Ukraine Are Now Engaged In A Shooting War! 
    by Michael Snyder,
    Russian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.  Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?  This week, a very robust force of “tanks, artillery and infantry” has opened up a “third front” in the Ukrainian civil war in a part of southeastern Ukraine that had not seen much fighting yet.  Exhausted Ukrainian forces are suddenly being pushed back rapidly and many outsiders are wondering how the nearly defeated rebels were able to muster such impressive military strength all of a sudden.  But it really isn’t much of a mystery.  The tanks, artillery and infantry came from inside Russia.

    In recent days, Ukrainian units have captured ten Russian paratroopers and there have even been funerals for Russian paratroopers that have been killed in action back home in Russia.  Even though it has become exceedingly obvious that Russia is now conducting a stealth invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is still choosing to deny it.  But if he did publicly admit it, that would be even more dangerous.  Barack Obama would be forced into a position of either having to do something about the Russian invasion or look weak in the eyes of the public.  And as the Russians have already shown, they are more than willing to match any move that the Obama administration makes.

    There has already been much written about who is to blame for all of this, and I am sure that much more will be written about who is to blame in the future.  The western world is blaming “Russian aggression” for the mess in Ukraine.    In return, the Russians point out that it was westerners that funded and organized the groups that violently overthrew the democratically-elected government of Ukraine.  To the Russians, the current government of Ukraine is made up of neo-Nazi terrorist usurpers that are attempting to brutally oppress millions of ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine.

    So the Russians seem themselves as “the good guys” in this conflict and so does the western world.  But that is how most wars start.  Both sides usually feel morally justified at the start of a conflict.

    In the final analysis, however, is it really going to matter very much who was “right” and who was “wrong” if the end result is World War 3?

    If the rebels in eastern Ukraine had been able to defeat the Kiev government forces on their own, Putin probably would have been content to let them do that.  But instead, they had been pushed back to two major cities and seemed on the verge of defeat.

    But now it is the Ukrainian forces that are experiencing “panic and wholesale retreat”

The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan!

  • The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan! 
    by Tyler Durden,
    Several months ago, when Russia announced the much anticipated “Holy Grail” energy deal with China, some were disappointed that despite this symbolic agreement meant to break the petrodollar’s stranglehold on the rest of the world, neither Russia nor China announced payment terms to be in anything but dollars. In doing so they admitted that while both nations are eager to move away from a US Dollar reserve currency, neither is yet able to provide an alternative.

    This changed in late June when first Gazprom’s CFO announced the gas giant was ready to settle China contracts in Yuan or Rubles, and at the same time the People’s Bank of China announced that its Assistant Governor Jin Qi and Russian central bank Deputy Chairman Dmitry Skobelkin held a meeting in which they discussed cooperating on project and trade financing using local currencies. The meeting discussed cooperation in bank card, insurance and financial supervision sectors.

    And yet, while both sides declared their operational readiness and eagerness to bypass the dollar entirely, such plans remained purely in the arena of monetary foreplay and the long awaited first shot across the Petrodollar bow was absent.

    Until now.

Russian Central Bank Prepares Bill to Create SWIFT Analog in Russia!

Click on image for article!

  • What has been long rumoured is now publicly stated. The BRICS alliance is now offering their alternative to the Anglo-American Zionist western Illuminati’s SWIFT system. SWIFT, Society of Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, is the system which controls the transfer of funds between nations. By using SWIFT, the western Illuminati impose their global hegemony on the world. Using SWIFT they impose sanctions on countries that oppose their hegemony! By denying the transfer of funds between nations, trade between sanctioned countries ceases.
  • We are talking about not being able to import or export anything since payment cannot be made. When a country cannot import oil, food, …. their economy collapses unless they are highly self reliant.
  • This move by Russia (and quite obviously with the support of China) is a direct stab at the heart of the western Illuminati’s global hegemony. The war drums will escalate and the Satanic WW3 will be triggered. This is about control of the world, control of the coming Luciferian New World Order, World Government.

  • Revelation 3:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
    Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

COVER-UP: Is Hamas Leader Al-Arouri A ‘Double Agent’ for Israel?

Click on image for article!

  • Hamas is an affiliate/offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is a British Intelligence MI6 creation. It is a tool of the western Illuminist intelligence agencies: CIA, MI5/6, Mossad! Hamas is controlled opposition!
  • The Masonic Origins of the Muslim Brotherhood (emphasis mine)
    The Masonic origins of the Islamists movements, and their true goal to undermine Islam and fight for Western Zionist Powers such as Britain and the United States of America. The Muslim Brotherhood has acted as a clever technique to recruit agent-provocateurs for the Illuminati. The lowest ranks may sincerely believe they are defending Islam, and confronting “Western imperialism”. However, these various terrorist groups, through representing different factions, are part of a single network serving the same Illuminati cause.

    When we explore the political and financial connections of the terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics, operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the British and American governments, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.

    William Engdahl on Egypt’s uprising:
    They are being organized in a Ukrainian-style high-tech electronic fashion with large internet-linked networks of youth tied to Mohammed ElBaradei and the banned and murky secret Muslim Brotherhood, whose links to British and American intelligence and freemasonry are widely reported.

    Muslim Brotherhood created by British Intelligence
    Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent…states in his report on Iran’s Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence”…and that their mission was to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted…”

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance. Without the British, “radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous.”

    The real Muslim Brothers are…the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy.

    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.

  • COVER-UP: Is Hamas Leader Al-Arouri A ‘Double Agent’ for Israel? 
    by , 
    Turkey has openly acknowledged that a top Hamas operative has been residing within its borders. The United States has also acknowledged this fact.

    Saleh al-Arouri, one of the founding members of Hamas’s Qassam Brigades was exiled to Syria until the Arab Spring, quickly making his way to Turkey thereafter. Al-Arouri, formerly jailed in Israel for his Hamas membership has recently claimed that Hamas was involved in the deaths of three Israeli teens – without providing evidence.

    Earlier this summer, when the Palestinian unity government was expected to take hold, and after the kidnapping deaths of three Israeli teens, a Hamas sustained rocket attack and a violent bombing campaign by Israel ensued, derailing the peaceful negotiations in the region once again. 

    Turkey is no stranger to harboring various groups of fighters, as the paramilitary group ‘Front Victory’ guided by Turkish intelligence and reportedly backed by Saudi financiers, was found to be directly tied to the formation of ISIS. It should also be noted that Turkey was very supportive of its NATO colleagues that were seeking to attack Syria, a strategy which fit snugly with the policy planning of the US-Israel-GCC alliance. There seems to be a warmth between Turkey and Israel despite the often overplayed icy relationship. In 2012, Turkey was said to have replaced Iran, as a Hamas’ top financial backer according to Israeli intelligence. Additionally, Turkey has had multiple defense contracting bids with Israel in recent years with the support of  Turkish PM Erdogan.

    The suspicious deaths of three Israeli teens in early June, has led to Gaza being bombarded for nearly two months now, suffering an enormous number of those wounded and killed. It has been stated that Hamas itself was in fact an Israeli creation, as a way to strategically weaken the PLO during the late 1980′s and some have associated the following quote with Charles Freeman a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia:

    Israel started Hamas. It was a project of Shin Bet which had a feeling they would use it to hem in the PLO.”

    Here’s a featured interview with Charles Freeman, conducted by RT news, discussing the ‘echochamber’ of US-Israeli foreign policy objectives. He also states on record that he did not believe Hamas started the broken cease-fire in 2008…

India, Pakistan Intensify Cross-Border Firing as Ties Sour! Heaviest Cross-Border Firing Since 1971 War!

Click on image for article!

  • Another rehearsal for the coming Indo-Pakistan war? Is this another of the ‘Strategy of Tension’ to keep the pot simmering just below boiling over? Or will this escalate to war as part of the Satanic WW3? I have no idea but the war drums around the world are beating louder and louder!
  • India, Pakistan intensify cross-border firing as ties sour
    Indian and Pakistani troops intensified firing across the border over the weekend killing at least four, an Indian official said on Sunday, straining ties between the arch rivals who recently called off top-level diplomatic talks.

    Last week India said its foreign secretary would not meet with her Pakistani counterpart as scheduled on Monday because of plans by Pakistan to consult separatists from the border state of Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the meeting.

    The cancellation dashed any hopes of near-term peace deliberations, chances of which had risen after Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif attended the inauguration of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about three months ago.

    The Himalayan region of Kashmir has been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan since both countries became independent in 1947. They have fought three wars and came close to a fourth in 2001 and there have been regular clashes on the Line of Control that divides Indian- and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.

    Giving ammunition to hawks on both the sides against resuming talks, firing across the border has picked up. According to India’s Defense Ministry, there have been 70 ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir since Modi took over.

Ukraine Crisis: Nato Plans East European Bases to Counter Russia!


  • In war propaganda, you always paint yourself as the righteous victim reacting defensively to the aggressive moves of the evil enemies out to destroy you! These moves by NATO are NOT defensive in nature. NATO is setting up the pieces for war against Russia! It is all part of the Grand Chessboard plan of Zbigniew Brzezinski!

    The Grand Chessboard is a strategic plan to secure US world domination by encircling Russia/China. For this purpose, the domination of central Asia is a must. The plan was launched by Zbigniew Brzezinski, adviser to 5 US Presidents, Obama´s mentor – or rather his (Ras)putin. The following is the Russian view of that project – which preoccupies Russia much – and which has been seen as a possible forerunner of WWWIII – possibly already planned.

    What worries Russia now is the British plan to make the Middle East an “Arc of Crisis” , presented by the Jewish historian, Bernard Lewis, to the the Bilderberg meeting in 1979, and accepted there. The plan was to start a chain reaction in the Middle East to oust the Shah of Iran (by means of the Muslim Brotherhood); the riots were then to swap onto the Soviet Union. The forces behind this plan, which is far from dead, are still the same: the Bilderbergers, the Club of Rome, Brzezinski and the CIA, and here.

    Zbigniew Brzezinski and the CFR Put War Plans In a 1997 Book – It Is “A Blueprint for World Dictatorship,” Says a Former German Defense and NATO Official Who Warned of Global Domination in 1984.
    by Michael C. Ruppert,
    “THE GRAND CHESSBOARD – American Primacy And It’s Geostrategic Imperatives,” Zbigniew Brzezinski, Basic Books, 1997.
    These are the very first words in the book: “Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power.”- p. xiii. Eurasia is all of the territory east of Germany and Poland, stretching all the way through Russia and China to the Pacific Ocean. It includes the Middle East and most of the Indian subcontinent. The key to controlling Eurasia, says Brzezinski, is controlling the Central Asian Republics.

    Brzezinski sets the tone for his strategy by describing Russia and China as the two most important countries – almost but not quite superpowers – whose interests that might threaten the U.S. in Central Asia. Of the two, Brzezinski considers Russia to be the more serious threat. Both nations border Central Asia. In a lesser context he describes the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Iran and Kazakhstan as essential “lesser” nations that must be managed by the U.S. as buffers or counterweights to Russian and Chinese moves to control the oil, gas and minerals of the Central Asian Republics (Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan). ….

  • Ukraine crisis: Nato plans east European bases to counter Russia! 
    by in Brussels, The Guardian 
    Nato chief announces move in response to Ukraine crisis and says alliance is dealing with a new Russian military approach.

    Nato is to deploy its forces at new bases in eastern Europe for the first time, in response to the Ukraine crisis and in an attempt to deter Vladimir Putin from causing trouble in the former Soviet Baltic republics, according to its secretary general.

    Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the organisations’s summit in Cardiff next week would overcome divisions within the alliance and agree to new deployments on Russia‘s borders – a move certain to trigger a strong reaction from Moscow.

    He also outlined moves to boost Ukraine’s security, “modernise” its armed forces and help the country counter the threat from Russia.

    Rasmussen said: “We will adopt what we call a readiness action plan with the aim to be able to act swiftly in this completely new security environment in Europe. We have something already called the Nato response force, whose purpose is to be able to be deployed rapidly if needed. Now it’s our intention to develop what I would call a spearhead within that response force at very, very high readiness.

    “In order to be able to provide such rapid reinforcements you also need some reception facilities in host nations. So it will involve the pre-positioning of supplies, of equipment, preparation of infrastructure, bases, headquarters. The bottom line is you will in the future see a more visible Nato presence in the east.”

    Poland and the three Baltic states have been alarmed at the perceived threat from Russia and have been clamouring for a stronger Nato presence in the region. They have criticised what they see as tokenism in the alliance’s response so far.

    But the issue of permanent Nato bases in east Europe is divisive. The French, Italians and Spanish are opposed while the Americans and British are supportive of the eastern European demands. The Germans, said a Nato official, were sitting on the fence, wary of provoking Russia.

FBI Creates Terror! The Global War on Terror is an Illuminist PsyOp Hoax!

  • FBI Creates Terror! 
    by Michael Collins Piper, 
    An explosive 214-page investigative analysis from the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) confirms precisely what this newspaper has reported for years. In the words of HRW’s Andrea Prasow: “Americans have been told that their government is keeping them safe by preventing and prosecuting terrorism inside the U.S. But take a closer look and you realize that many of these people would never have committed a crime if not for law enforcement encouraging, pressuring and sometimes paying them to commit terrorist acts.”

    Charging United States terrorism prosecutions are “often an illusion,” HRW notes that while there have been some 500 counterterrorism cases investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and prosecuted by the Justice Department since the September 11 tragedy, nearly 50% of those have resulted from informant-based situations in which “almost 30% of those cases were sting operations in which the informant played an active role in the underlying plot.”

    Although HRW acknowledges many FBI inquiries had properly targeted individuals actually planning or financing terrorist attacks, “many other [FBI operations] have targeted individuals who do not appear to have been involved in terrorist plotting or financing at the time the government began to investigate them.”

    In fact, HRW pointed out: “In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by conducting sting operations that facilitated or invited the target’s willingness to act.”

    HRW found that, “at times, in aggressively pursuing terrorism threats before they even materialize, U.S. law enforcement overstepped its role by effectively participating in developing terrorism plots—in at least two cases even offering the defendants money to entice them to participate in the plot.”

    According to HRW, federal authorities “aggressively sought out terrorism suspects, sometimes before the individual concerned [had] expressed any intention to use violence,” and that “individuals who perhaps would never have participated in a terrorist act on their own initiative and might not even had the capacity to do so,were prosecuted for serious, yet government-created, terrorism plots.”

    Since the September 11 attacks, AMERICAN FREE PRESS has covered this issue extensively. For more on AFP’s previous coverage of this matter see articles written by AFP writer Bill White in the April 16, 2012, March 26, 2012, December 5 & 12, 2011 and November 14, 2011 editions as well as a series of articles on phony terrorism probes by writers Richard Walker, Keith Johnson and this writer.

A groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism exposes how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror.

The New York Times’ Lies and Distortions Strengthens Israeli Impunity and Undermine Human Rights Workers in Gaza!


  • The New York Times’ Lies and Distortions Strengthens Israeli Impunity and Undermine Human Rights Workers in Gaza! 
    by Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, Electronic Intifada, 18 Aug 2014 
    On 5 August, The New York Times published an article by its Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren headlined “Civilian or Not? New Fight in Tallying the Dead From the Gaza Conflict.”

    In discussing the statistics of casualties, Rudoren brings into question the data produced by Al Mezan Center for Human Rights’ work and undermines our credibility through errors of fact and misrepresentations.

    Al Mezan is an internationally recognized human rights organization that monitored attacks on the Palestinian population of Gaza during Israel’s latest military operation. Distorting our credibility undermines our work with possible repercussions for the thousands of victims that we represent. Rudoren’s conjectures serve to perpetuate the public relations message by Israel that there is no proof as to direct and disproportionate attacks on Palestinian civilians by Israeli forces. Our work shows that there is.

    Uncorrected claim
    The first error lies in a statement that we were correcting previous news releases at the time of the Times’ interview, which implies that we issue false information and then update it later. The Times issued a correction to this false claim.

    Secondly, and left uncorrected, is the claim that included in the list of Palestinian fatalities by Israeli forces are deaths from natural causes and domestic violence. The point was not directly attributed to Al Mezan in the article but to human rights groups. As the most quoted source and the only one in the relevant context, the connection to Al Mezan is assumed. The link is not at all tenuous in Rudoren’s tweets, where she directly named Al Mezan as the source.

    Rudoren insisted that Mr. Samir Zaqout, Al Mezan’s monitoring director, made this statement and she refused to correct the error in the article or on her Twitter account. Only when a Times colleague, who was present in the interview, confirmed that Zaqout did not make the statement did she agree to correct her tweet, five days after the error was made. Rudoren and The New York Times have refused to correct it in the article.

    Severe distortion
    Thirdly, and viewed as both a misguided perspective and a factual error, is Rudoren’s conjecture that some combatants have been mislabelled as civilians. The article provides inaccurate definitions of combatant and civilian, which severely distorts for readers the rights of those killed and the responsibilities of the government of Israel.

    She categorized hundreds of victims aged between 15 and 17 as adults, in contravention with one of the most established international standards in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that persons under the age of 18 are children. Such reckless statements are not evidenced and endanger the legal standing of civilian victims.

    The documentation of violations reported by Al Mezan is up to internationally recognized legal standards. Fatalities caused by Israeli forces would only be categorized as such after Al Mezan’s trained field workers visited the site of the attack and collected evidence and testimonies. Further, Al Mezan has a standard procedure for dealing with suspicious cases, involving a thorough site assessment and cross checking of information. No suspicious cases are added to the list until the suspicion has been removed to the satisfaction of our rules.

    Rudoren deemed “impressive” the work of an Israeli group that gathered its information indirectly and without interviewing any witnesses. The group also analyzed only 152 of the then-1,800 victims.

    When Al Mezan contacted Rudoren, she refused to correct the second factual error in the article, which was one of a number of errors and misinterpretations on the situation in Gaza that will lead to misunderstandings for any reader without a window into the reality of the situation on the ground.

    Serious journalists would bridge the gap between events on the ground and concerned citizens around the world. Rudoren completely failed to do so. Given the limited coverage of Israel’s then one-month-long attack on the Gaza Strip by the Times and the many unsubstantiated claims relayed by Israeli and international media, we consider the interview between Rudoren and Zaqout to be a lost opportunity.

    Working in Gaza, Al Mezan and other distinguished human rights organizations are at the receiving end of Israeli attacks. On the ground, and following thorough investigations, evidence had been collected that Israel violated the basic rules of international law in hundreds of armed attacks.

    In particular, the failure to distinguish between military and civilian targets is exemplified in over 850 attacks on houses, many of which were populated, and other attacks on well-marked hospitals, ambulances and water and power facilities. Other crimes were committed when the Israeli army failed in hundreds of cases to launch proportionate attacks on alleged military targets. The onus is on Israel, not on the victims, to prove that its attacks were both on military targets and proportionate.

    Israel’s latest operation is one in a series of severe violations of international law, which amount to war crimes. Israel’s repeat violations are driven by a lack of accountability. Our work aims to hold perpetrators to account and achieve justice and reparations for victims as per international law. Undermining our work will strengthen the culture of impunity and encourage a lack of accountability, creating an atmosphere supportive of the next war, not peace.
