Christopher Luxon and Winston Peters can’t find the energy to tweet for an end to Israel’s genocidal starvation of Palestinians in Gaza


Christopher Luxon and Winston Peters can’t find the energy to tweet for an end to Israel’s genocidal starvation of Palestinians in Gaza.

Israel continues to turn away humanitarian convoys of desperately needed aid from northern Gaza but PM Christopher Luxon has been silent while FM Winston Peters has been indolent.  

Meanwhile the numbers of children starved to death in this Israeli-made famine continues to rise. 

Neither can find the energy to condemn Israel but they have plenty of energy to splutter their indignation and condemnation at the killing of Israelis. 

Protests continue across the country this weekend on International Women’s Day demanding our government condemn Israel’s policy of starvation of Palestinians.

Details of the protests against the government and its racist anti-Palestinian policies are on our Facebook event page here

  1. Gaza and the West Bank are part of greater Israel. Only Israeli citizens will be allowed to reside in these territories!

    • ‘The problem with Zionism is that it’s obscene for anyone’s status or rights in the area where they live to depend on their ethnicity or religion or where their ancestors lived. Zionism should be rejected not because we think Palestinians have a better claim than Israeli Jews to a blood-and-soil connection to the land, but on the basis of the universalist principles that have always formed the rock-solid normative basis of the socialist movement and, before that, were proclaimed by the French Revolutionaries in 1789.
      ‘Those principles say that everyone is entitled to the same package of rights, just for being a human being.’

    • Greater Israel only existed during the time of David & Solomon, AD70 was God’s judgment on their rejection of Him. The Jewish people can still accept Jesus if they want an eternal future & they suffered terribly in the past, especially during the 2nd world War but that does not give them any sort of divine right to possess Gaza and the West Bank. Their action directly show that they do not worship a God who describes Himself as Love so your support for them can only show that evil is in your heart also.

    • Ignorance is bliss eh Zelda, a little know historical fact is that Gaza is recorded in human history as existing 6000 years ago before “Greater Israel” came to be as recorded by ancient Egypt.

  2. Hipkins, Luxon, seymour and peters are all the same fuckin’ day man. Janis Joplin.
    Keep an eye on Chloe Swarbrick if hope’s what you need right now. Go and read her bio. It’s impressive in my opinion.

      • We don’t talk enough about how horrifyingly evil it is that the actual, stated position of Israel and its immensely powerful allies is that all of the killing and starvation of Palestinian civilians in Gaza is entirely the fault of Hamas, because Hamas has not acquiesced to the military demands made by Israel. In effect, it is saying “We will kill thousands and thousands of children until you give us everything we want.”

        “Such a tactic is not meaningfully different from lining up children on their knees on the battlefield and shooting them one by one in the back of the head until the enemy unconditionally surrenders.”

        Saying “Hamas Just Needs To Surrender” Is Saying “We’ll Kill Kids Until We Get What We Want”

    • Imagine little ole Hamas holding one of the regions most formidable militaries at a stand still and apparently exacting significant casualties which the apartheid state hasn’t acknowledge. And assuming that you’re a layman in terms of the apartheid state let me educate you that this BS actually stated in 1917.

      Hamas formed in the 1980s under the auspice of the MB has the right to armed resistance recognized under International law and were principally justified attacking apartheid Israelis on 7th OCT 2023. Now you probably have another opinion but when it comes to the law your opinion is irrelevant. The apartheid state IMO needs to be dismantled for the good of humanity especially the ultimate victims the indigenous Palestinians. Yemen will also stop bombing ships in the ‘Red Sea’ Bab Al Mandab if the apartheid state stop bombing Gaza and pushing for a permanent ceasefire.

    • What utter bollocks. That corrupt bastard Netanyahu created the famine and has demonstrated his complete indifference to the fate of the hostages.

      • John – Gazans going hungry? Hamas is controlled by 3 Billionaires – with a combine net worth of $6 Billion USD…get them to pay for food!

        • Nathan how much cash and cash in kind has been lobbed the way of the Israeli’s? Maybe they should try buying land instead of stealing it.

        • Food that Israel will not let the civilians in Gaza receive ,,, eh Nathan. ….

          and that’s assuming the first part of Nathans statement is any more true/accurate than his previous statement that people in Wellington have to ” line up to get water” …

          Nathan will say any old crap ….

    • Hamas have vowed to resist until Israel agree to a permanent ceasefire, the release of all the Palestinian civilians ‘captured in Gaza during this war as well as release of Palestinians unjustly detained, held in Israel’s jail system. In exchange for a permanent ceasefire Hamas will release all the Israeli hostages.

      The Prime Minister of Israel has called Hamas terms unrealistic.

      Netanyahu has vowed to continue his war of extermination after a 6 week week ceasefire, in exchange Hamas must surrender to Israel, handback the hostages. after 6 weeks the Palestinians released during the ceasefire will be killed or recaptured and the one sided slaughter will continue.

      Which side is being unrealistic?

  3. I don’t much care for Israel but Hamas fucked around and are finding out.
    I hope they kill every last one of them and any Palestinian that protects them.

  4. Winnie da Pooh claim maori are practicing apartheid then months later as MFAT minister automatically sucks up to apartheid Israel the irony of this muppet.

  5. America is astonishingly trying to reinvent themselves as the Palestinian savior now, by (literally) carpet bombing Gaza with a few care packages consisting of one meal for one day for one percent of the starving population, while still providing unconditional support to Israel who carpet bomb Gaza, murder civilians and party like the Nazis did in WW2. This is much sicker than WW2, these people have collectively tipped over into the darkest of depravity and mental illness now.

  6. Disgusting people with only politics in their heads. Imagine what the last true social-democratic PM, Norman Kirk, would have done.

  7. Israel has bent everyone’s arm behind their back so as we can’t tell them they’re wrong and need to go. In a just world we would TELL them to stop and then give the pricks space in our countries. Instead we are letting them starve the rightful people of Palestine.

    I’m furious at this vile Crusader state. All out war on it is what I want.

  8. they will never tweet because they only give a fuck about them selves and the top 5%.As far as they are concerned the rest can rot in the street after they have taken every thing we have .They dont care about NZ so why would they give a toss about any kid on the other side of the world that has no financial benefit to them .

    • Never, never, never put your people above truth and justice. It doesn’t end well. Nor do the great Jews ever do. Why we love your people.

      I’m from Scots so we have blood up to our armpits from being the lackeys of the English during the British Empire. I thought the Germans were the greatest of the European people from their sincere road of redemption since the Holocaust, till now when they revealed their blind spot about Israel. So I return to my first regard, the Irish, who remember better, from an in-depth education, often instilled by their brother people, my Scots. Hundreds of years of oppression.

      Israel is a lump on the end of a nose a Jew doesn’t need and may be cancerous.
