IDF at war with civilians

By José M. López Sierra


The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) is fighting the Palestinian population in Gaza in violation to international law. The artificial colonial settler state of Israel claims that it has the right to defend itself. That, however, is not correct under international law.

The United Nations’ (UN) Secretary General referred to that argument, when he said that Hamas’ attack did not happen in a vacuum. The Palestinians are the ones who have the right to defend themselves, and to use all means necessary to decolonize their homeland!

The UN has condemned Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and the International Court of Justice issued orders that Israel must protect Palestinian civilians. Israel, however, with the unconditional support of the United States (US) has continued their genocide with impunity. Where is the so-called “Rules Based Order (RBO)” that the US likes to talk about? Please click on this link for a historical explanation of the present crisis:

“RBO” is a euphemism for US imperialism. The US was born out of English imperialism. The artificial colonial settler state of the US was created by also committing genocide, in this case, against the indigenous people of North America. Where was the “RBO” then?

Israel is an important part of the US’ Empire that allows it to continue to violate the sovereignty of 87% of the world. US colonialism only benefits 3% of US citizens, as 9 of the 10 richest men in the world are Americans.38 million US citizens, however, live in poverty today, as reflected in that only 33% of Americans are satisfied with our government.

Puerto Rico is another good example. The US has consistently refused to comply with 42 UN’s resolutions demanding that it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. About 6 million Puerto Ricans have abandoned our national territory, and half of the 3 million who remain live in poverty. This is the real consequence of “RBO”!

Fortunately, the global majority is fighting back against US imperialism, in order to install a real world democracy, and the respect for the rule of law. The US’ preference for the rule of the jungle has made the US the real jungle. The global majority’s preference for democracy proves that it is the one that is the real garden.

Imperialism turns everything up-side-down.

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
