Please stop hashtagging your Israeli-Palestinian conflict posts with genocide. Stop using that word in that context. Because you’re using it wrong. You see, according to the Genocide Convetion of 1948 (which is now in use by the ICC as well)
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Genocide is a crime of specific intent - the very particular motive is to destroy an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.
Israel’s stated goal is to wipe out Hamas, a terrorist organization. Hamas’ goal is to wipe out the Jewish people. Sure, there are right-wing Israelis who want to wipe out Palestinians, but they’re not controlling the
Are there war crimes going on? Yes, on both sides. If this does end up in the ICC (it most likely won’t), there would likely be charges under war crimes and crimes against humanity. Actions taken by both sides fall under these crimes.
So let’s talk about genocide. About the Iraqi Christians who are being told convert, leave, pay or die. Let’s talk about how 100 years later, people (including Turkey’s PM) are still denying that the Armenian genocide was indeed genocide. Let’s talk about how Rwandans are still scared that someone will come back and finish the genocide. Let’s talk about Cambodia, and Bosnia, and the genocide of Natives in the US.
Genocide. Learn what it means before recklessly throwing it around. Your misuse devalues the word.
Also since we’re here, I’m all for denouncing Zionism but can we please avoid the antisemitism
Israel =/= Jews
Jews =/= pro-Israel
This includes sending threatening messages to Jews, posting cartoons with blood libel, posting cartoons portraying Jews as antisemitic caricatures, associating Nazism with Israel or intertwining swastikas with Star of Davids.
That is all, have a nice day
3, 000 notes. Let’s hope people follow through with this tho
Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… And shot off their testicles.
“The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way,” said police investigator Evan Delp.
Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant’s desk and told him as calm as could be: “Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.”
Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas’ testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. “The one guy, Thomas, didn’t lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won’t be using it the way he used to,” Detective Delp told reporters. “Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they’re just happy to be alive after what they’ve been through.”
The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row. “When I saw the look on my Debbie’s face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself ‘cause I figured the Law would go easy on them,”’ recalled the retired library worker. ” And I wasn’t scared of them, either - because I’ve got me a gun and I’ve been shooting’ all my life. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one.”
So, using a police artist’s sketch of the suspects and Debbie’s description of the sickos, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighbourhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.
“I knew it was them the minute I saw ‘em, but I shot a picture of ‘em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them,” the oldster recalled…
“So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot ‘em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt ‘em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.”
Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny.. “What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.”
No mercy for rapists.
"It is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.” OH MY GOD
This. They should do this to every god damn rapist.
omg RBG is my idol
