Rallies, marches and vigils replace gutless government over genocide in Gaza

Despite being called to stop killing Palestinians by the International Court of Justice, Israel has ignored this and close to 2,000 Palestinians – mostly women and children – have been slaughtered in Gaza since the ICJ interim measures were announced (The total Israel has killed since October 7th is 27,840)

New Zealand’s silence is deafening. Despite condemning the killing of Israeli civilians the government has been silent on the slaughter of Palestinians – refusing to condemn the apartheid state of Israel for the carnage and numerous other war crimes such as “collective punishment” of Palestinians.

New Zealanders are once more gathering all over the country to protest the genocide and speak up while our gutless government looks the other way.

Details of the protest events across the country are on our Facebook event page here (with the basic details below)

    • So let’s compare what the IDF & the Israeli government actually do as compared to a small selection of what they should be doing if they are to have any legitimate claim to the area
      Deuteronomy 10:18
      18 He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing.
      Deuteronomy 14:29
      29 And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, may come and eat and be satisfied, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
      Deuteronomy 16:11
      11 You shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your gates, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are among you, at the place where the Lord your God chooses to make His name abide.
      Deuteronomy 16:14
      14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates.
      Deuteronomy 24:17-20
      17 “You shall not pervert justice due the stranger or the fatherless, nor take a widow’s garment as a pledge. 18 But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and the Lord your God redeemed you from there; therefore I command you to do this thing. 19 “When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. 20 When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.
      Deuteronomy 26:12-13
      12 “When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year—the year of tithing—and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, 13 then you shall say before the Lord your God: ‘I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them.
      Deuteronomy 27:19
      19 ‘Cursed is the one who perverts the justice due the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

  1. The Israelis are currently protesting as well, preventing medical aid and food getting into Gaza. So noble, so principled, so righteous and human. They wave their arms around these chosen people and with crazy eyes they chanti about death. Yuck.

    • Show me the press articles that proves Israeli are blocking medical aid to Gaza Must be from a reliable source, so that excludes Al Jazeera of course.

  2. Must have missed the protest organized by Minto against the rape and mutilation of women and children by his terrorist friends…they fucked around and found out the limit of Israeli patience with the death cult living next door.

    • Looking at the numbers of Israelis v Palestinians killed over the years you might want to rethink which party is the death cult here Nabatean.

    • Zionism was always based on ‘transfer’ of the local people. I hate you ignorant sonovabitch and Israel. And love Jews. Explicate?

  3. Rallies, marches and vigils replace gutless government over genocide in Gaza
    By John Minto

    Cutting life saving aid to a starving people?
    Venal might be a better word to describe this government’s actions, against Gaza.

    No more aid for UN aid agency until Peters satisfied – Luxon
    RNZ 12:41 pm on 30 January 2024

    When will Peters be satisfied?

    When images of living human skeletons appear on our newsfeeds?
    When children with distended bellies and glazed lifeless faces peer back at us on the news?

    This venal creep needs to be in the Hague alongside all the other Western politicians being tried for complicity in genocide.

    https://skwawkbox.org/2024/02/07/south-africa-to-file-legal-action-with-icj-against-uk-us-for-war-crime-complicity/

    A team of almost fifty South African lawyers is preparing a legal case to bring to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the United Nations’ top court, against the US and UK, for their complicity in Israel’s array of war crimes in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

    • Ummm, bodies of burnt-alive babies from the October 7th massacre? Or are only Palestinian children lives the ones that matter Pat?
