There is not a shred of evidence that can support Israeli claims of wanting to achieve peace based on the division of historic Israel / Palestine into two independent states. Israel has skillfully used the last 40 years to strengthen its hold on the areas occupied in 1967 and create a de facto apartheid state in all of Israel / Palestine. Consecutive Israeli governments bluntly use the so-called peace process to cover up expansion into the West Bank and execution of what has been called the slow genocide of the Palestinian people.

Robberies, murders and rapes were at their height [at 4.00 p.m. on 15 September]. In the whole town massacres of the Armenian population and robberies of all non-Muslim peoples were going on. They broke the doors and windows, entered the living quarters, dragged out men, women and children and killed them in the street. From all the houses the yells of the people who were being attacked were heard….In some spots there were mountains of dead bodies, and many had terrible wounds from dum-dum bullets. The most appalling picture was at the entrance to the Treasury Lane from Surukhanskoi Street. The whole street was covered with dead bodies of children not older than nine or ten years. About eighty bodies carried wounds inflicted by swords or bayonets, and many had their throats cut; it was obvious that the wretched ones had been slaughtered like lambs. From Telephone Street we heard cries of women and children and we heard single shots. Rushing to their rescue I was obliged to drive the car over the bodies of dead children. The crushing of bones and strange noises of torn bodies followed. The horror of the wheels covered with the intestines of dead bodies could not be endured by the colonel and the asker (adjutant). They closed their eyes with their hands and lowered their heads. They were afraid to look at the terrible slaughter. Half mad from what he saw, the driver sought to leave the street, but was immediately confronted by another bloody hecatomb.

Notes from Khristofor Mikhailovich Evangulov to General Isakov Bagratuni during the September Days in 1918, who was one of the people who negotiated the surrender of the city and attempted preventing the escalation of the ongoing violence.

The September Days is the massacre of Baku Armenians (and to a lesser extent other non-Muslims and Muslim/Azeri allies) by Turkish Enver Pasha’s Army Of Islam and their Azeri allies when they captured the city. It is estimated that 10,000-30,0000 Armenians were massacred.

The genocide of the Acadians in 1755 was the first example of state sponsored ethnic cleansing on the North American continent. The Acadians were a 150 year old french anarchist settlement that prospered through integration with indigenous peoples, and a culture of voluntary association. The Acadian example offers an alternative look into what social life in North America might have been in the absence of nationalistic violence.

This Mike Brown Story is sickening. For those that don’t know, the cops shot an 17 year old kid because they suspected he stole candy from a store. They shot him 10 times, killing him, then leaving his body in the streets for hours. People from the community protest and rally against the cops and what do they do? Bring military weapons out and police K9’s. I’m sorry, but I was under the impression that police dogs were for sniffing drugs, no? This is crazy. This is what modern day genocide looks like. There is no article on it as of yet, why? Cause Amerikkka don’t care about brown boys and girls. The fact that one has to learn this from twitter says it all. Again, this is modern day genocide. White people are always the quickest ones to defend the cops because they’re not on the receiving end of this bullshit. Telling black people “don’t give the police a reason to fuck with yo black ass” is up there with telling women “don’t wear provocative clothes so you won’t get rapped.” The worst part about all of this is that A: this boy was schedule to start his freshman year of college this upcoming Monday and B: those cops are going to get away with it. John Crawford, Jordan Davis, Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Andy Cruz, Michael Brown, Amadou Diallo, Darius Simmons, Johnathan Ferrell Trayvon Martin… when does it end? #MikeBrown #Ferguson #Missouri #PoliceBrutality #Cops #YoungBlackTeen #Genocide

Just days after a national campaign was launched to highlight the effects of casual racism in Australia, this appears. Racism is far from being a thing of the past. Racism is alive and kicking today. Absolutely no doubt about that. And y’know, whites are proud to say that British invasion was necessary and justified. They are proud to state that the genocide that was committed upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples was necessary, too. They are completely and wholly proud to be treating us as sub-human. Whites are proud to be the descendants of murderers and invaders. This is now and it’s terrifying. Stay safe everyone. We are living among these people.

The Times of Israel is a zionist online newspaper founded by a former reporter from the right-wing zionist Jerusalem Post. Its blog section is always filled with incitement and propaganda against Palestinians. Today, however, they crossed a line. Although the moral repugnancy of this sentiment gave no one working at this rag second thoughts, the backlash on twitter has now forced the editors to remove the piece. 

The name of the author is Yochanan Gordon. May this haunt him for the rest of his pathetic life.

HORROR: ISIS is "systematically beheading" Christian children in Iraq

image

Brutal genocide is happening in Iraq, and most of the media and figures in Washington are completely ignoring it. 

from GH World:

A prominent Christian leader of the Chaldean community unveiled the “systematic beheading of children” and other horrendous crimes committed by ISIS. He said that the Sunni extremists are committing genocide against Christians in Iraq and with the aim to instill the Sharia Law as the law of the land.  

In the interview with CNN’s Jonathan Mann, Chaldean-American businessman Mark Arabo said that the “world hasn’t seen an evil like this for generations.”  

"There is a park in Mosul, where [ISIS] they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick and have them in the park," he explained. "More children are getting beheaded, mothers are getting raped and killed, and fathers are being hung."

Speaking from San Diego over Skype, Arabo called for the international community to offer asylum to the more than 300,000 Christians fleeing and living in neighboring cities. 

At a meeting in the White House last week, he said the Chaldean-American leaders and the political leaders are saying that the world should come together to stop these crimes against humanity and help alleviate the sufferings of the Iraqi people.  

"The world hasn’t seen this kind of atrocity in generations," he said. "This is a crime against humanity.  This is much broader than a community or a state. This is crime against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of."

When asked about Sunni extremists’ targeting of Christians, Arabo said that around 95 percent of Christians have fled, five percent have converted. Also, the ISIS have marked the death stamps on Christian homes, so whoever returns will get killed.

The media would rather broadcast Hamas’s false accusations against Israel than cover the actual genocide happening right now at the hands of Muslim extremists in Iraq.

"Yeah kid you kill, like, 2.47 billion children and live with the guilt for a few hundred years or something and even though you kind of save it you still watch as your friends and family die around you." "dude"

Hey everybody! So this is me holding a sign and you may be wondering…what slaughter? Is this another post about Gaza? And I’m here to say, no it’s not. While the atrocities occurring in Gaza are brutal and unacceptable I’m here to talk about another issue that the media FAILS TO COVER IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM. If you haven’t heard already, there is a new terrorist group called Isis emerging from Iraq. While terrorism is horrible for everybody and everything, it is especially bad for the indigenous Christians who are being FORCED TO CONVERT TO ISLAM OR BE SLAUGHTERED. Ten years ago there were 1.5 million Assyrians (the majority of Christians in the region), now there are only 400,000. Since the media fails to cover this BRUTALITY, I need you guys…TUMBLR I NEED YOU ALL TO SIGNAL BOOST THIS. Christians are being FORCED OUT OF THEIR HOMES. Women are being RAPED. Children are ORPHANED. They even have the audacity to CRUCIFY two teenagers who refused to convert. And all I ask is for you all to reblog this. TUMBLR THIS IS A GENOCIDE AND THESE PEOPLE ARE BEING SILENCED, BE THEIR VOICE. STOP ISIS NOW.

You know what we should talk about?

The Assyrian/Christian genocide that is happening right now in the Middle East. But no one has seemed to even notice that this is going on and that is unacceptable. 

Christians in Iraq, predominantly ethnic Assyrians, are being systematically targeted by the terrorist jihadist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. Businesses and homes of Christians are being marked with the Arabic letter N, ن,  (pronounced “noon”), which is the pejorative Arabic word for Christians. Much like the Star of David used to mark Jews during Nazi Europe, the letter is meant to designate and shame Iraqi Christians.
 
Christian families were given the deadline of July 19th to either leave Mosul, convert to Islam, pay a religious tax or die by the sword. Given the prosecution and struggle facing Christians, hundreds fled the city, taking little more than the clothes on their back. For the first time since the 4th-century there are no Christian Assyrians in Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city. The Assyrian community had peacefully existed in that region even before the existence of Islam; but today, every Christian institution in Mosul has been destroyed, burned down or overrun by ISIS.
 
The atrocities against Assyrian Christians being committed include execution style murders, public crucifixions, beheadings by the sword, public displays of mutilations, and gang-raping of women in front of their children and husbands. Christian cemeteries, churches, important archeological sites and beautiful ancient Assyrian and Mesopotamian statues dating back some 3,000 years are also being callously destroyed. (x)

We have another holocaust in our midst, and with all of the social justice blogs that exist on tumblr, I’m honestly surprised and rather appalled that there has not been any attempt to get this news out. (Perhaps other Assyrians such as myself have made similar posts to this but have not received any support in making these issues known.)

But this isn’t something that just started yesterday. Over a month ago, ISIS crucified eight Christians in Syria for rejecting Islam. I wouldn’t have known about this if my mother hadn’t informed me of it because our media doesn’t seem to find this story to be worth covering. 

And the circumstances for Assyrians/Christians in the Middle East have only been getting worse:

  • families are throwing their children from the top of a mountain in order to keep them from suffering prosecution (x)
  • on August 6th, a report from northern Iraq stated, “(45) children died of thirst… (1500) men were killed in front of their wives and families, (50) old men died also from thirst and illness. More than (70) girls and women (including Christians) were taken, raped and [are] being captured and sold. More than (100) families are captured in Tel afar airport.” (x)
  • ISIS is systematically beheading Assyrian/Christian children and displaying their heads on spikes in a park (x)

Mothers and fathers have lost all hope for survival and would rather see their children die at their own hands than suffer at the hands of the extremist group. Thousands of people are left homeless and on the run, dying of starvation, thirst, and illness. Children are being mutilated and their severed heads displayed. 

So why isn’t anyone taking action? Is it easier to just play dumb than get involved?

Or perhaps the atrocities in the Middle East are only important to the people and governments of western countries when they directly involve them.

Whatever the reasons may be, inaction is unacceptable.

So now that you have been made aware, you know what to look for. You can search online and in the papers for more information about this genocide and help spread the word. Maybe then our western governments will realize that they can’t keep genocide a secret, even if it is happening on the other side of the world.

Please help my family.
