Israel told US it is modeling Gaza attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki

category international | politics / elections | other press author Sunday November 05, 2023 22:35author by Tamara Nassar Report this post to the editors

1st Nov 2023 “It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza.

“It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza.

A visible symbol of that determination to let Israel kill as many Palestinians as it pleases came when Antony Blinken sat stony-faced as anti-war activists repeatedly disrupted the secretary of state as he put forward the case for billions more in military aid for Israel and Ukraine at a congressional hearing on Tuesday.

The Biden administration is asking for $14.3 billion for Israel – on top of the minimum of $3.8 billion it already provides every year.

One by one, members of the audience rose from their seats, calling for a ceasefire and denouncing Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and the American role in it.

Activists with the anti-war campaign group CODEPINK also called for an end to US military aid to Israel.

Others sat silently with their arms raised, showing their palms covered in red paint.

Security officers removed protestors from the room, while Blinken maintained an indifferent demeanor.

“No red lines”

The United States is drawing “no red lines” for Israel in its genocidal slaughter of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Those were the words of White House national security spokesperson John Kirby last week.

Even as the death toll in Gaza soared above 8,000 Palestinians – almost half children Kirby asserted on Monday: “We do not believe that a ceasefire is the right answer right now. We believe that a ceasefire right now benefits Hamas.”

Kirby said the Biden administration supports “temporary, localized humanitarian pauses to allow aid to get to specific populations” – though none of that has happened.

The Biden administration continues to talk about getting aid in through Egypt – a tiny trickly soared above 8,000 Palestinians – almost half children for the ongoing US-backed starvation of the population by Israel, which has cut off water, food, medicine, fuel and other life essentials to the besieged territory.
