Emergency Forum: No More War Crimes! Economic Development, Not Depopulation
A Nov. 5 article titled “Israel Minister Suspended after Calling Nuking Gaza an Option” in Politico reported that “Israel’s Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu was suspended indefinitely after he said in an interview that dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip was ‘one of the possibilities,’ the government announced on Sunday”, Nov. 5.
It would be supremely irresponsible to not take this threat seriously. Already, between 25,000 and 30,000 tons of bombs have been detonated by the Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza since Oct. 7. This far exceeds the bomb tonnage dropped in the most lethal air raids of the Second World War, including Hamburg (4 raids, 9,000 tons); Dresden (4 raids, 3,900 tons); and Tokyo (1,665 tons.) The Washington Post reported that the IDF had dropped “in less than a week what the US was dropping in Afghanistan in a year, in a much smaller, much more densely populated area”.
One must ask: Has the decision been made to reintroduce mass murder in warfare as a “legitimate” practice?
An alternative to this madness will be presented in an
Emergency forum on Nov. 26, at 17.00 CET
with International Peace Coalition members Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder
of the Schiller Institute, and Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst
and co-founder of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.
Following their presentations, the film, 8:15 Hiroshima: From Father to Daughter, directed by J.R. Heffelfinger and written and produced by Dr. Akiko Mikamo, will be shown. It is a first-hand account of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima City by U.S. forces. Dr. Mikamo will be available for discussion at the film’s conclusion.
