Getting Called A Nazi For Opposing A Genocide
A Graveyard For Children
words and peace demo photos by C. A. Matthews
“Gaza has become a graveyard for children,” a UNICEF spokesperson says. “It’s a living hell for everyone else.”
Admittedly, it’s a difficult concept to wrap your head around. Most of us are taught that children in general are the best and the brightest of humanity. They are our hopes for a better tomorrow, a cherished part of life on Earth.
of us would do anything to protect children and keep them out of harm’s
way. Ask parents what is the worst thing that could ever happen to them
in their lives, and the vast majority will state, “Outliving my child.”
The death of one child can affect more than the child’s parents. The loss of a sibling, close cousin, or school friend is often listed as one of the most devastating events of a person’s life. Even the hope of a child who dies before they can take their first breath can devastate a family, and perhaps break a marriage apart. I’ve seen this, and their example will never leave me.
learned that this family had lost another child, younger than their
living child, several years earlier. The baby had either been stillborn
or died soon after birth, so perhaps they had never even had a chance to
bring the baby home from the hospital. But the death was still felt,
still mourned, and still haunted their every waking moment.
The father worked his new job hard, but in the few instances I saw him together with his wife and daughter, I could tell that the empty spot their lost child would have filled had left a void that neither he or his wife could cross or heal. Their young daughter was active and friendly, but often when interacting with her parents I noticed a quietness and sadness that seemed beyond her years. Even if she couldn’t remember her lost sibling, she intuited that something important was missing from all their lives.
What sort of person would inflict such a sadistic injury upon their neighbors, upon the indigenous people whose land they had stolen 75 years earlier in a supposed attempt to find a peaceful home for themselves?
no way these Israeli sadists could be good parents themselves. They
must secretly hate children or despise their very existence to want to
inflict such harm upon little ones. To even think of murdering a child
or an innocent adult as a form of “weapon” to use against another
demonstrates these sick bastards’ twisted psychopathology.
A loving parent would never do anything intentionally to harm the precious life of their child—or anyone’s precious child—if this parent truly cherishes children. But here we have the Israeli government cutting off water and electricity to Gaza, cutting off food supplies and medicines, and then intentionally bombing hospitals, including a hospital with a children’s ward, a hospital with tiny babies in incubators who need oxygen and heat to survive.
Are the Israelis who follow Netanyahu the type of individuals who drown unwanted puppies and kittens? Did they tear the wings and legs off of insects when they were younger? Bully the smaller kids on the playground when they were growing up? There must be something in their psychological make-up and history to explain their current murderous behaviors. Nothing they say or do gives us any indication that their desire to commit genocide against the Palestinian people will let up anytime soon.And then we have the genocide enablers, or more likely genocide collaborators, such as the United States.
Who could be worse than genocidal maniacs Netanyahu and company? Of course it’s anyone who would knowingly fix their star on his genocidal actions and try to ride his coattails. If “Genocide Joe” Biden could wash his hands of Israel and step back and stop all funding of their ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, then the US could be let off the hook. But no...Joe’s gotta be a part of it, up to and including supplying armaments and boots on the ground.
I have to wonder, what’s it like being an American soldier patrolling in the bombed-out ruins of Gaza? I can only assume it’s hellish and heartbreaking. Well, maybe if you have a conscience and care about children and innocent civilians, being bombed into a pulp, it would be heartbreaking. If you’re an American who enjoys drowning unwanted puppies and kittens and tearing the wings and legs off of insects, then you might feel right at home in this nightmare situation.
It’s one thing to call other countries mass murderers and genociders, but to accuse your fellow countrymen of committing war crimes? It’s truly sickening. I don’t know how we will ever be able to beg forgiveness for the US military’s genocidal behavior toward the Palestinians. It’s all too obvious we’ve learned much from the Nazis we imported after World War II in Operation Paperclip. It’s all too obvious we admire the Neo-Nazis of the Azov Battalion that we continue to fund in Ukraine.
“Gaza has become a graveyard for children,” according to a United Nations spokesperson. The leaders who put them there, their murderers Netanyahu and Biden, need to be held accountable for their war crimes at the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Nothing less will satisfy the tears of their loved ones or meet the need for justice on this woe-begotten planet.
There is a massacre taking place before our eyes in Gaza.
Dr. Jill Stein has always condemned violence against civilians on all sides. Yet there is no denying it: Israel’s actions in Gaza are genocidal. Palestinians are being denied food, water, electricity and medicine, as they are subjected to relentless bombings that even target hospitals. These crimes must stop now.
Jill is calling for an investigation of the Netanyahu regime’s war crimes, as well as the role of Biden and US leadership in aiding and abetting them.
The endless war machine enriches military contractors, lobbyists, and politicians, while it fuels bloodshed and devastation around the world. Please join us in supporting leadership that promotes peace and human rights at home and around the world by leaving a comment, and sharing this video with others who support peace.

At least six newborn babies who had to be taken off their incubators at al-Shifa have died as of Monday, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, with at least 30 others still at risk as doctors are forced to perform manual respiration on the babies to keep them alive. Doctors have said that the babies are likely to die as long as the electricity is out. The blockade has also forced dozens of patients on dialysis to be taken off the treatment, health officials say, meaning that they will likely die within days.

Chris Hedges: The Horror, The Horror
The active complicity by the United States is unfathomable. Nothing justifies this. Nothing. And Joe Biden will go down in history as an accomplice to genocide. May the ghosts of the thousands of children he has participated in murdering haunt him for the rest of his life. (...)
We are not hated for our values. We are hated because we have no values. We are hated because rules only apply to others. Not to us. We are hated because we have arrogated to ourselves the right to carry out indiscriminate slaughter. We are hated because we are heartless and cruel. We are hated because we are hypocrites, talking about protecting civilians, the rule of law and humanitarianism while extinguishing the lives of hundreds of people in Gaza a day, including 160 children.
