Israeli Defence Minister Naftali Bennett said that “desecrating corpse of Palestinian is not violation of human values… The only violation of human values is only hurting the feelings of Israeli citizens.”
It was shocking to see an armoured Israeli bulldozer pulling the corpse of a Palestinian man after he was killed by the Israeli occupation forces in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis. This shocking scene reflected the sadistic innate of the Israeli occupation.
The comment of the Israeli Defence Minister Naftali Bennet on the desecration of the body of the Palestinian man, who was identified as Mohammed al Na’em, proves that he and his occupation state do not care about human values at all except when the issue is related to the Israeli occupiers.
“We do not believe that anything is sacred except the souls and bodies of the Israeli citizens,” Bennet told the Israeli radio. “Desecrating a corpse of a Palestinian terrorist is not a violation of human values,” he added, stressing that “the only violation of human values is hurting the feelings of the Israeli citizens.”
Yesterday’s shocking incident, which shows the body of a slain Palestinian man hanging from the blade of an Israeli military bulldozer after he was shot dead and run over along the eastern fence of Gaza, was unprecedented. No one has ever committed such a crime! This incident was even condemned by the Israeli rights groups and they demanded that a criminal investigation into the incident must be opened.
Adalah, an Israeli rights group, said that the scenes “depicted in the video were viewed as war crimes and blatant violations of international criminal law, and international human rights and humanitarian law.”
This criminal and savage incident was ordered by Bennett who decided to maintain the bodies of Palestinians from Gaza to use as a bargaining chip to put pressure on Hamas — the ruler of the besieged enclave — to release the Israeli soldiers imprisoned in Gaza or to release their remains if they are dead.
Such crimes are not the only thing committed by the Israeli occupation. They commit so many crimes against the Palestinians everyday. For example, the closed a Palestinian bakery in Jerusalem because it supplies bread for the Palestinian worshipers in Al Aqsa Mosque, considering this as a crime.
The antizionist American Jew Norman Finkelstein has said that Israeli occupation “is following the footsteps of evil people by closing Palestinian bakeries.” On his Facebook wall, Finkelstein wrote: “Following in the footsteps of the most evil people in history, Zionists starve Palestinians by closing down bakeries.”
Not only the Palestinians who view the Israeli Zionist occupation as evil, but also all free people around the world, including Jews. So that, when the world leaders will take up the lead and end the Zionist occupation and free Palestine or help the Palestinians get rid of this cancer and free themselves?
