Israel announces plans for ethnic cleansing of Rafah

Given that Israel has ordered the people of Gaza to evacuate effectively all other areas of the region, the clear implication is that the population will be expelled into the Sinai Desert, with or without the permission of Egypt.

“They’re saying they’re not allowing them to go to the north. They don’t want them to stay in Rafah—it doesn’t require a nuclear physicist to come to the conclusion that there is only one place for them to go, which is the Sinai Peninsula.”

In October, Israel ordered over one million people in northern Gaza to the south, calling it a “safe zone” and assuring them that they would not be bombed there. Then, in November, Israeli forces ordered the evacuation of the city of Khan Younis, forcing civilians in the area to flee south to Rafah. One after another, each of these “safe areas” have been bombed and then attacked by ground troops.

As a result, approximately 86 percent of Gaza’s population—1.7 million out of 2.3 million people—are internally displaced, with the majority of those sheltering in Rafah. The trapped refugees are facing famine and lack access to clean water, hygiene and medical care.

In a statement, Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General António Guterres, stated, “We would not in any way support forced displacement, which goes against international law.” This statement effectively declares that the Netanyahu government has expressed intent to carry out ethnic cleansing.

BS, as the actual article does Not say what the headline says it does, or anything even close to it......

I have BS for you also. BS--bat shit --- crazy. Are you really that ignorant? Or is that your way of supporting ethnic cleansing, and the clear case of genocide that has been going on? Acting ignorant as a means to support the evil doings on this planet. It's one thing to support the criminal politicians and their policies that you do, that can be a matter of perception management so many are guilty of, but blatant overlooking of a known action such as this highly suggest something way worse.

@William_Mary try reading what the thing you posted Actually says before you look even stupider than you do right now.
The headline is Highly misleading.

@annewimsey500 the headline is exactly what has been happening the past couple of days. Therefore, the headline was right. And the rest of the information in the article is factually sound to past and current actions. That account for the slaughter of a people under inhumane conditions with unjustified overwhelming power. Resulting in approximately 70% of their social living structures destroyed, along with basically their entire infrastructure. They have been forcefully herded out within an expulsion campaign from one end of Gaza to the other with nowhere else to go but from their homeland. This is a textbook ethnic cleansing and genocide of a people from their homeland and to their deaths. And you don't get to choose to make it anything different. It doesn't matter what you say, or how you say it. For anyone attempting to make it anything other than what it factually is a means to question that person's character on multiple levels. I've been questioning yours from the very beginning. For me to be any more outspoken to your character would result in allowing you to pull me down to your level and be beat with experience.

@William_Mary
Soooooooo, relocating a population out of a war zone is "ethnic cleanising"?????
Since when?
When exactly are you going to Read what the article actually says, instead of frothing at the mouth over the Very misleading headline, which is contradicted in the first 2 sentences, BTW.

@annewimsey500

Following are the descriptions of genocide within its various constructs. Genocide being the last on this list in which is the United Nations conclusions in 1948 that would be used in the international criminal court. In which the western governments went on to break their own findings of when they committed these crimes and denounce the courts decisions whenever these definitions were turned on them. As Israel is doing today. Which I suspect you'll also continue to espouse their resembling denouncement of to fit whatever delusional reality you live by.

Ethnic cleansing is the systematic forced removal of ethnic, racial, or religious groups from a given area, with the intent of making a region ethnically homogeneous. Along with direct removal such as deportation or population transfer, it also includes indirect methods aimed at forced migration by coercing the victim group to flee and preventing its return, such as murder, rape, and property destruction.[1][2][3] The definition of ethnic cleansing is disputed, with some researchers including and others excluding coercive assimilation or mass killings as a means of depopulating an area of a particular group.[4][5][6]

[en.wikipedia.org]

Cultural genocide involves the eradication and destruction of cultural artifacts, such as books, artworks, and structures.[6] The issue is addressed in multiple international treaties, including the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute, which define war crimes associated with the destruction of culture. Cultural genocide may also involve forced assimilation, as well as the suppression of a language or cultural activities that do not conform to the destroyer's notion of what is appropriate.[6] Among many other potential reasons, cultural genocide may be committed for religious motives (e.g., iconoclasm which is based on aniconism); as part of a campaign of ethnic cleansing in an attempt to remove the evidence of a people from a specific locale or history; as part of an effort to implement a Year Zero, in which the past and its associated culture is deleted and history is "reset".

[en.wikipedia.org]

In 1948, the United Nations Genocide Convention defined genocide as any of five "acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group". These five acts were: killing members of the group, causing them serious bodily or mental harm, imposing living conditions intended to destroy the group, preventing births, and forcibly transferring children out of the group. Victims are targeted because of their real or perceived membership of a group, not randomly.[1][2]
