Current Events

  • Instead of the ceasefire teased by Qatari “negotiators”, Zionist forces began an intense bombardment of Rafah.
  • This appears to leave the ethnic cleansing of the Gaza strip by a State actor nearly complete, with no effective action by the International Community to enforce the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
  • The Ansar Allah government in Yemen (as opposed to other groups claiming to be the goverment of Yemen) remains the only state actor to actively have contested anti-Palestinian violence.
