Dear Nanaia – Israeli Ambassador must be called in over killing of Shireen Abu Akleh

The murder of Al Jazeera’s indomitable Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is an abomination in an occupied territory that is stained with abominations!

I am a passionate viewer of Al Jazeera and the protection of journalists covering war zones is essential to ensure war crimes and abuse of powers are witnessed and exposed.

To kill those who are exposing such violence is an ugly perversion that is corruption of the values we as a democracy stand for and have spilled blood over.

The NZ Israeli Ambassador must be called in to be told of NZs dismay that a Journalist covering abusive Israeli actions has been killed and that the importance of an independent inquiry into this repellent murder is essential.

NZ should now look to push for some type of statement via the UN.

This is a moment that requires courage of our convictions.

It is unacceptable to have journalists killed covering abuses of power.

Shireen Abu Akleh deserved better than that.

  1. Mahuta is too busy yapping about ‘Russian disinformation’ (a deranged and paranoid pathology of the West) after being told what to say from her owners in UK/US, the two biggest peddlers of lies in the history of mankind. I trust information coming from Russian Federation ministries, I do not trust the racist, psychologically manipulative narrative coming from New Zealand officials.

  2. Imagine the collective uproar if Russia did this….

    If we can sanction Russia and unpeople all Russians, then surely we can sanction Israel over this….

  3. “…is an ugly perversion that is corruption of the values we as a democracy stand for”
    What democracy? We have a capitalist-zionist backed corporate fascism. Is that what you meant?
    When the RNZ Brainfart, brain farts conservative, sugar coated street violence and P addictions and we know RNZ is 100% owned by the gubbimint we can surely argue that what we warmly believe is our AO/NZ isn’t, and our democracy is a myth, a fictional fantasy scripted by an all bought and paid for MSM to have us believe we’re in control of our lives and our own country when, in literal fact, it isn’t and we’re not.
    So who then, is? Should we be concerned? Fuck yes, we should.
    ( Did I slide off-topic again? )
    Israeli’s murdering Palestinians etc is an industry. Palestine’s a weapons training ground. It’s a Hellish place where power and psychopathic blood sports are fun but also profitable. Just like the MSM.
    Anyone getting in the way of that will be seen as non profit, therefore they must be culled, like rats in the barn.
    If there are malevolent aliens here, as some believe there are, they’re surely fascist-capitalists.

  4. Absolutely. Does NZ Labour Caucus echo UK Labour leaders like Starmer with their pro Israeli stance? Quite likely.

    I guess 5 Eyes members back Israel right or wrong. The fact is this Apartheid State (as UN, Amnesty and hundreds of Palestine solidarity groups have declared it) would not last 5 minutes but for the unstinting financial and arms support from US Imperialism.

    BDS–Boycott, Divest, Sanction!!

    • Na, Israel would do OK without the US support – the original principle of which was to provide equivalent support to Israel, Egypt and Jordan as part of peace-making leverage. It’s the same amount it was decades ago and is of less significance.

  5. Time to boot him out!
    And apply full sanctions on israel!
    And treat the Palestinians with the same support with which the western world has shown ukraine.
    And pigs can fly!

  6. Totally agree Martyn. It’s an abomination. I still cant square how the average Israeli can keep supporting a violent regime after the holocaust. It goes from bad to worse.

    I too am an Al Jazeera fan, its the only MSM I watch regularly.

    • The only reason the zionist entity exists is to murder, torture, and rape Palestinians. They’ve already slaughtered this lady, and then harassed her family at the wake, threatening them in an attempt to get them to take down the flag of Palestine (which is a real nation, unlike ‘israel’), to stop singing national songs (which represent the indigenous people of Palestine, the only ones with the right to inhabit any area of 1948 Palestine), and disperse mourners.

      So yeah… they’re going to keep on doing their ‘right thing’. Murdering, raping, torturing the actual legitimate residents of Palestine.

      • Mohammed I agree this shooting is a vicious act by Israel but the state of Palestine is relatively recent as you will know. The word Israel predates it by a thousand years. Your opinion of what’s a state or country is just your opinion. Both Judaism and Christianity started there so there is a lot going on and no simple answer. The first three lines of your comment is utter bullshit. Emotive claptrap, and doesn’t help the argument. I am not Jewish or even religious.

        • New view: the state of Israel has been around for an even shorter time than Palestine.

          Problem is both Israel and Palestine are based on religious faith; both claim to have powerful imaginary friends whom they deem have ordained their particular states existence to be Gods will.

          When you’re dealing with a group of people who have imaginary friends that believe the other group of people are in the wrong and visa versa, well, it’s pretty hard to have any sort of rational solution

          this will go on and on until final victory for one side.

          • Nonsense. Christians and Muslims alike- indeed, all human beings- support the liberation of Palestine from zionist occupation.

          • XstraightXedgeX Yes I understand that. I said the word Israel not State in my comment. People who draw lines in the sand for borders and expect the inhabitants of that land to comply are dreamers. ie the British.

    • The only reason the z**nist entity exists is to murder, torture, and rape Palestinians. They’ve already slaughtered this lady, and then harassed her family at the wake, threatening them in an attempt to get them to take down the flag of Palestine (which is a real nation, unlike ‘israel’), to stop singing national songs (which represent the indigenous people of Palestine, the only ones with the right to inhabit any area of 1948 Palestine), and to disperse mourners.

      So yeah… they’re going to keep on doing their ‘right thing’. Murdering, raping, torturing the actual legitimate residents of Palestine.

      • More like the only reason the Palestinian entity exists is to drive Israel into the sea. Did Palestinians even have an identity before 1948?

      • and how exactly do you propose to solve the situation mohammed?
        rants like yours from BOTH sides are the reason the middle east is a shithole of seething hatred’
        no, it’s not the former colonisers fault, it’s not religions fault, it’s not the superpowers fault, it’s the fault of two sides who take glee in murdering each other, they all like it, they all enjoy it and that’s the reason it goes on and on and on…………..

        please note…the israelis are never going to accept being ‘pushed into the sea’ so that’s off the table.

          • I suggest you check my previous posts on the conflict before throwing around terms like zionist….your apology will be noted but not accepted john.

  7. What are the chances?
    JA is in conference with H1 as we ponder and post. “officials” are warning caution caution Will Robinson while entrepreneurs and influencers are looking for media opportunity.
    H2 has chosen to stay the fuck out of it so various floundering Munsters appear to be on their won.
    @ Gaby will be along shortly. Hold the violins

  8. Don’t waste time and energy talking to liars, boot him out. But before we do, make him demolish his own house as isn’t that what israelis do?
    And then give to Palestinians the same level of support we give to Ukraine.

  9. Totally agree Martyn; we urgently need to voice our disgust at the ongoing oppressive actions of the state of Israel.

  10. Politicians in Aotearoa prove themselves very racist everyday. Mahuta displays her ignorance and racism on an international stage. And her and Arderns fear of upsetting the American Empire. Their moral compasses are broken.
    Don’t hold your breath waiting for the govt to have words with the Israel Ambassador. They will have seen what the lobby does to politicians who don’t cheerlead for the Zionist project.

  11. “The NZ Israeli Ambassador must be called in to be told of NZs dismay that a Journalist covering abusive Israeli actions has been killed and that the importance of an independent inquiry into this repellent murder is essential. NZ should now look to push for some type of statement via the UN.”

    Sure.

  12. The statement we would like to see from the Minister of Foreign Affaires:

    “The New Zealand Government call on the International Criminal Court to investigate the killing of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh”
    Office of the New Zealand Minister of Foreign Affaires, Nanaia Mahuta

    The statement we are likely to see:

    “The New Zealand Government, in line with the statement from US State Department spokesperson Ned Price, call on the alleged killers of Shireen Abu Akleh to investigate themselves.”
    Office of the New Zealand Minister of Foreign Affaires, Nanaia Mahuta

  13. people do not seem to realize that Israel and Ukraine are birds of a feather ,,, https://youtu.be/sMd0p24995s?t=86

    Swapping more than just their ‘ideas of the ethno-nation’,, https://thegrayzone.com/2018/07/10/ukraine-embassy-israel-arming-nazis-max-blumenthal/

    Resistance to both or either of their violence ,,, is labeled ‘terrorism by them.

    ie the start of the Ukraine war in 2014 ,,,:
    ““Ukraine on April 15, 2014 launched the ‘anti-terrorist operation’ (ATO) and ordered its military to re-take control over Donbas region. In only 10 months the results are more than 6000 people dead, including 2000 Ukrainian troops,,,which many be underreported, and more than 1 million internally displaced and refugees…

    … the reality of which is partially shown here,,, with statistics at the end of this old, short clip https://www.bitchute.com/video/H44EYHitZM4q/

    • I feel terrible for the Ukrainian people. They should not be being sent, untrained, to fight against their brothers by the wicked zionist Zelensky.

  14. The PA’s own pathologist has stated it’s impossible to determine who killed her. So all you bayers for blood are well off the mark.

  15. Seems that the Palestinians are not allowing the Israeli’s to also have access to the bullet that killed Shireen Abu Akleh re the investigation into her death – if correct that certainly raises questions around who killed her and why?

    “JERUSALEM — The bullet that killed the journalist Shireen Abu Akleh on Wednesday has become the central point of contention between competing efforts by Israelis and Palestinians to investigate who shot her.

    The Palestinian Authority said on Thursday that it had declined a request to give Israeli officials the bullet that killed Ms. Abu Akleh, a Palestinian American journalist for Al Jazeera who was killed in the occupied West Bank during an Israeli raid.

    Hussein al-Sheikh, the Palestinian official who helps oversee the authority’s relationship with the Israeli government, said it would investigate Ms. Abu Akleh’s death independently, rejecting Israeli calls for a joint inquiry and for the bullet to be assessed in an Israeli laboratory. Mr. al-Sheikh also accused Israeli soldiers of killing Ms. Abu Akleh, dismissing Israeli claims that the journalist may have been hit by Palestinian fire.”
