Israeli regime operating with impunity from international law

Given the latest atrocities carried out by forces of the Israeli state, when they executed yet more unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza, it may be worth remembering that the Zionist regime is not engaging in a new tactic but is merely expanding upon its existing policies.

We shouldn’t let world’s future be manipulated by the past

Since the beginning of the Palestinian Grand Return March on land day April 30, the world has looked on in horror as Israel has killed at least 109 Palestinians and injured thousands of unarmed Palestinians asking to return to their land and seeking to protect non-violently what little of their land is left.

Manus fails to realise that if these issues had been addressed in a satisfactory manner then I would not be in a position to highlight them.
