Israel: serial killer state since 1948

Israel has blood on its hands

Israel has blood on its hands


Israel has blood on its hands. The murder of over 1,000 Palestinians in recent weeks is not its first massacre.

In November 2012 it bombed Palestinian homes in Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defence. Its 2008-09 Operation Cast Lead killed 1,400 people in Gaza with the help of chemical weapons.

The bloodshed has stretched beyond Gaza to the West Bank, where it massacred people in Jenin’s refugee camp in 2002.

Israel has aided atrocities outside Palestine such as the 1982 slaughter in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon.

Zionist militias murdered over 100 people in the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin in 1948—the year Israel was created.

Israel was founded on the ethnic cleansing of nearly one million Palestinians. 

It has not stopped killing since.
