Three subjects: apology needed, way forward, and interesting links, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

Three subjects today: apology needed for lies about 7 October and the
genocide, way forward post-conflict based on international law (right of
return and self-determination), and interesting links

1) NEED AN APOLOGY from Israel and its backers for lies about what happened
7 October (and it is not just the lie aboutt beheaded babies but more
seriously about who bombed Israeli houses and cars killing civilians) and
the genocide that folowed and still ongoing. Here are some of the lies
(taken from
-IDF lookouts threatened with court martial after early worning about Hamas
-Israeli helicopter shot civilians at 7 October rave, police find

-Up to half the Israelis killed 7 OCTOBER were combatants and many of the
civilians killed were killed by Israeli forces; that Israeli forces were
responsible for some of their own civilian deaths; and that Tel Aviv
disseminated false ‘Hamas atrocities’ stories to justify its devastating

October 7 testimonies reveal Israel’s military ‘shelling’ Israeli citizens with tanks, missiles see
-Why is Israel trying to HIDE this hostage interview?

-Chris Hedges interviews Max Blumenthal about 7 October Sott Ritter on 7 october
-Sott Ritter on 7 october
-SEE for other lies and distortions about the ongoing genocide
(6000 children killed, 2.3 million Palestinains targeted, 1 million
children, 1.4 million displaced, 50% of Gaza destroyed etc)..
Israel and its backers especially the US government that funded the canage
must be demanded
2) POST CONFLICT RESOLUTION: This must be rooted in International law and
principles which include right of return to Palestinian refugees and right
of self determination. This will rectify the huge injustice done to the
Palestinian people and allow for peace based on restorative justice. We
must stop wasting time talking about a two state scenario unless the two
states are based on UN GA resolution181 which gives 55% of the land to a
Jewish state and 45% to a Palestinian state with Jerusalem and Bethlehem
being International. UNGA181 prohibits removal of people so refugees must
be allowed to return. It also calls for economic union (essentially
confederation). Actually Israel’s admission to the UN was based on
acceptance of UN resolutions issued before it was admitted” UNGA 181 and
UNGA 194 (right of refugees to return). As for the 1967 occupied areas
(Golan, West Bank and Gaza), Israel must withdraw and remove all
settlements (which are illegal by international law). The most logical
solution is return of refugees and democracy (a vote on outcome which
fulfils self-determination). We should not let Israel determine what lands
it needs for securitry or the conditions on Palestinians in the name of
security that amount to perpetual apartheid and occupation. It is
Palestinians who need security more (if there is any evidence needed, check
the latest and ongoing genocide in Gaza which started 75 years ago. For a
real roadmap to peace based on human rights, see .

For those who state Israeli body politic will not allow it (most right wing
and fascist government in Israel’s 75 year history), I say like South
Africa under apartheid, there should be a strong global movement of
Boycotts, Divestments , and Sanctions (see But also there
must be trials of those wo breached international law and engaged in
genocide: Five countries brough cases before the International Criminal
Court but I think cases need to go before the International Court of Justice
