    One day historians will condemn in the most rancorous language the way the U.S. government condoned, facilitated and united with Israel’s inhumane genocidal slaughter of the innocent, helpless civilian population of Gaza. And one day soon, the Judge of the Universe will condemn Biden and Bibi to join mass murderers of history past in the deepest parts of Hell. 

    What was it that Jesus said? It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. (Luke 17:2)

    These U.S. congressmen and senators who have provided the money, jets, missiles and bombs to Israel that they might carry out these murderous acts of aggression against innocent women, children and babies will face their own millstones. Count on it!

    Media and government spokesmen keep regurgitating the number of Gazans killed by Israel as being around 30,000. Use your common sense. This number is only a fraction of the total killed in Gaza. Think around 200,000 dead, and you’ll be closer to the truth.

    Ralph Nader astutely writes:

    Since the Hamas raid penetrated the multi-tiered Israeli border security on October 7, 2023 (an unexplained collapse of Israel’s defensive capabilities), 2.3 million utterly defenseless Palestinians in the tiny crowded Gaza enclave have been on the receiving end of over 65,000 bombs and missiles plus non-stop tank shelling and snipers.

    The extreme right-wing Netanyahu regime has enforced its declared siege of, in its genocidal words, “no food, no water, no electricity, no fuel, no medicine.”

    The relentless bombing has destroyed apartment buildings, marketplaces, refugee camps, hospitals, clinics, ambulances, bakeries, schools, mosques, churches, roads, electricity networks, critical water mains—just about everything.

    The U.S.-equipped Israeli war machine has even uprooted agricultural fields, including thousands of olive trees on one farm; bulldozed many cemeteries; and bombed civilians fleeing on Israeli orders, while obstructing the few trucks carrying humanitarian aid from Egypt.

    With virtually no healthcare left, no medications, and infectious diseases spreading especially among infants, children, the infirm, and the elderly, can anybody believe that the fatalities have just gone over 30,000? With 5,000 babies born every month into the rubble, their mothers wounded and without food, healthcare, medicine, and clean water for any of their children, severe skepticism about the Hamas Health Ministry’s official count is warranted.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas, which he helped over the years, have a common interest in lowballing the death and injury toll. But for different reasons. Hamas keeps the figures low to reduce being accused by its own people of not protecting them, and not building shelters. Hamas grossly underestimated the savage war crimes by the vengeful, occupying Israeli military superpower fully and unconditionally backed by the U.S. military superpower.

    The Health Ministry is intentionally conservative, citing that its death toll came from reports only of named deceased by hospitals and morgues. But as the weeks turned into months, blasted, disabled hospitals and morgues cannot keep up with the bodies, or cannot count those slain lying on roadsides in alleys and beneath building debris. Yet the Health Ministry remains conservative and the “official” rising civilian fatality and injury count continues to be uncritically reported by both friend and foe of this devastating Israeli state terrorism.

    It was especially astonishing to see the most progressive groups and writers routinely use the same Hamas Health Ministry figures as did the governments and outside groups backing the one-sided war on Gaza. All this despite predictions of a human catastrophe in the Gaza Strip almost every day since October 7, 2023 by arms of the United Nations, other besieged international relief agencies on the ground, eyewitness accounts by medical personnel, and many Israeli human rights groups and brave local journalists in that strip, the geographic size of Philadelphia. (Unguided Western and Israeli reporters and journalists are not allowed to enter Gaza by the Israeli government.) (See the open letter, titled “Stop the Humanitarian Catastrophe,” to President Joe Biden on December 13, 2023 by 16 Israeli human rights groups that also appeared as a paid notice in The New York Times.)

    Then came the December 29, 2023 opinion piece in The Guardian by the chair of global public health at the University of Edinburgh, Devi Sridhar. She predicted half a million deaths in 2024 if conditions continue unabated.

    Tharoor quotes Jan Egeland, chief of the Norwegian Refugee Council: “We must be clear: civilians in Gaza are falling sick from hunger and thirst because of Israel’s entry restrictions,” and “Life-saving supplies are being intentionally blocked, and women and children are paying the price.”

    Martin Griffiths, the United Nations lead humanitarian officer, said “Life is draining out of Gaza at terrifying speed.”

    U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, according to the Post, warned of an “‘unknown number of people’—believed to be in the tens of thousands—lying under the rubble of buildings brought down by Israeli strikes.”

    Volker Turk, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, said, “All people in Gaza are at imminent risk of famine. Almost all are drinking salty and contaminated water. Healthcare across the territory is barely functioning,” and “Just imagine what this means for the wounded, and people suffering infectious-disease outbreaks… many are already believed to be starving.”

    UNICEF, the International Rescue Committee, the Palestinian Red Crescent, and Doctors Without Borders are all relating that the same catastrophic conditions are getting worse fast.

    Yet, and get this, in this article, the Post still stuck with the “more than 30,000 people in Gaza have been killed since the ongoing war began.”

    Just like the entire mass media, many governments, even the independent media and critics of the war would have us accept that between 98% and 99% of Gaza’s entire population has survived—albeit the sick, injured, and more Palestinians about to die. This is lethally improbable!

    From accounts of people on the ground, videos and photographs of deadly episode after episode, plus the resultant mortalities from blocking or smashing the crucial necessities of life, a more likely estimate, in my appraisal, is that at least 200,000 Palestinians must have perished by now and the toll is accelerating by the hour.

    Think of it: 200,000 innocent women, children and babies murdered by Israel and America in just five months. And there is no end in sight.

    The bloodguilt of this barbarism lies on many doorsteps:

    1. The bigoted, bloodthirsty butcher Benjamin Netanyahu (Bibi) and his fellow antichrists in Israel’s Likud Party.

    2. America’s demented, soulless criminal-in-chief Joe Biden.

    3. Every politician on Capitol Hill in both parties that supplied the money, jets, ammunition, missiles and bombs to the Israeli government.

    4. The leaders of the Arab world, who have callously and apathetically sat back and refused to come to the aid of the Palestinians.

    5. The American citizenry at large, who have been brainwashed by 75 years of constant Israel-Victimhood propaganda and who falsely believe that Israel is a “democracy” and “friend” of the United States, and who, therefore, blindly support Israel regardless of how demonic or murderous the Zionist state is.

    6. Evangelical pastors and Christians. These are the REAL culprits responsible for Israel’s murderous ethnic cleansing and genocide in Palestine.

    Adherence to the Zionist-inspired notes in the Scofield Reference Bible at the turn of the 20th century by evangelical colleges, universities and seminaries inundated 20th-century (and now 21st-century) evangelical Christians and churches with the antichrist doctrines—especially prophecy doctrines—of “Christian Zionism.”

    Some 80% of America’s evangelical churches, schools, radio and television broadcasts and books and literature promote this demonic theology. The result is that public opinion in virtually every American institution has been pushed into accepting this diabolical doctrine. And the result of THAT is that Israel can murder 200,000 innocent women, children and babies (many of them Palestinian Christians), and the American people at large—especially evangelicals—are completely and totally unmoved or even gleeful about it.

    In the meantime, thousands of Israelis themselves are risking life, limb and liberty to protest Bibi’s genocide of the Gazan people. 

    According to the Anti-Defamation League, a pro-Israeli group with a stated mission of fighting anti-Semitism and other forms of racism in the United States, Zionism means supporting a Jewish state established for the protection of Jews worldwide.

    However, many [Israeli] anti-Zionists like Maya and the people she works with view Zionism as a Jewish supremacist movement which has ethnically cleansed most of historic Palestine and systematically discriminates against the Palestinians who remain, either as citizens of Israel or residents of the occupied territories.

    But since Hamas’s deadly attack on Israeli civilians and military outposts on October 7, in which 1,139 people were killed and nearly 250 taken captive, Israeli anti-Zionists have been accused of treason for speaking about Palestinian human rights.

    Many have called for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza to stop what they view as collective punishment and genocide of the Palestinian people.

    Since October 7, Israeli anti-Zionists have described living in a hostile political and social environment. Many say the police have violently cracked down on anti-war protests, while others have received threats from far-right-wing Israelis.

    Roee, who, like Maya, did not give his last name for fear of reprisals from Israeli society or authorities, is also a Jewish Israeli activist. In October last year, he attended a small demonstration of a couple of dozen people a few days after Israel began bombing Gaza. The demonstrators were calling on Hamas to free all Israeli captives and on Israel to stop the war.

    “The police pushed all of us [out] violently in just two minutes,” Roee, 28, told Al Jazeera at a cafe in West Jerusalem.

    Weeks later, Roee and his friend, Noa, who also did not want her full name to be revealed, attended another silent demonstration outside a police station in Jerusalem. They put tape over their mouths to denounce the sweeping arrests of Palestinian citizens of Israel who had also called for an end to the war on Gaza.

    But again, police chased down the Israeli protesters and beat them with batons.

    “I think it is very clear that the police recognise us. It doesn’t matter the signs we hold. They know us. They know we are leftists and that we are ‘traitors’ or whatever they call us,” Noa told Al Jazeera.

    Many Israeli antiwar activists have also been smeared or “doxxed” – a term given to people whose identities and addresses are made known on social media by those hoping to intimidate them into silence.

    While most Israelis are required to enlist in the army after high school, antiwar activists have refused to take part in their country’s continuing occupation of the West Bank, where raids and arrests have been intensified since October, or in the war on Gaza. Two young Israelis who publicly refused to join the army are now serving short sentences in military prison.

    Einat Gerlitz, a “non-Zionist” and a member of Mesarvot, a non-profit organisation providing social and legal support to Israeli conscientious objectors, said that more people may have refused military service since the war on Gaza began, because not everyone goes public.

    “The army does not release the numbers … because the army’s interest is to make sure [refusing service] is not a topic spoken about in the public sphere. The government and army work really hard to glorify army service, so they want minimal attention on conscientious objectors,” the 20-year-old said.

    While she, herself, is happy to be public about her views – she spent 87 days in prison in 2022 for refusing to serve in the Israeli army (IDF) – she added that many others do not go public for fear of social backlash or reprisals.

    I can vouch for the way pro-peace Israelis are beaten, persecuted, imprisoned or worse by the Israeli military police, as there are Israeli Christians (and Palestinian Christians) who watch my online messages and regularly write to me about the persecutions they endure from the Israeli military for their Christian beliefs.

    America’s pro-Israel evangelicals need to tear the Book of Acts out of their Bibles, because they are supporting the antichrist descendants of the Pharisees and 1st-century Jews who are persecuting, beating, imprisoning and murdering our 21st-century Christian brothers and sisters in Palestine in the same way that their antichrist ancestors persecuted, beat, imprisoned and murdered our 1st-century Christian forebears in the Book of Acts.

    And in the time that it took you to read this column, dozens more Palestinian women, children and babies were murdered by the Israeli Zionist government in concert with our own U.S. Zionist government.

    200,000 and counting.
