Nicaragua Sues Germany at ICJ Over Israel Support, Alleges Genocide Facilitation (bnnbreaking.com)

Nicaragua’s petition centers on accusations that Germany’s actions violate crucial international treaties, including the 1948 Genocide Convention and the 1949 Geneva Convention. By providing financial and military aid to Israel and discontinuing support for the UNRWA, Nicaragua argues, Germany is complicit in facilitating...

South America has issues with colonial border since the europeans colonisers left, and later on also due to US intervensions. Nicaragua has additionally a horrifying past from the Sandinistas revolution -supported by people from all over the world- that succeeded and turned authoritarian, as they do. Not that long ago. Many people who fought in it are still alive. To my understanding they still suffer the consequences.

In order for the US-backed state of Israel to stop killing and starving civilians and children, all other countries need to demand it by diplomatic pressures, economic sanctions, boycott etc.

Seems kinda reasonable. Hamas probably killed them sadly

Why would you assume that and not that they were bombed by the US-backed state of Israel? Zionists often kill Israelis.

IDF Investigation Finds High Probability That Hostage Was Killed During Air Force Bombing

and this:

According to a police source, the investigation also indicates that an IDF combat helicopter that arrived to the scene and fired at terrorists there apparently also hit some festival participants.

Thank you, it's good to know these things.

Israel is well known for its pinkwashing and greenwashing.

Is there already a term like war-washing or we're gonna have to invent one to describe what Israel is doing?

The title: U.S. [claims it] wants Israeli written assurances on using U.S. weapons in Gaza by mid-March
The last sentence: The Israeli Defense Ministry declined to comment.

Does this sums it up or is it just my impression??

that's assuming all these concerned parties actually want a solution and not just to vilify Israel

For this statement to be valid it would be required that the concerned parties are equal. In the case of the Israel and Palestine there is a power imbalance. On one hand there is the zionist settler colonial power of Israel that is one of the strongest military forces in the world. One the other hand you have Palestine that is not even recognized as a country by the colonizers and instead of borders the colonizer has raised a wall controlling amongst other things the few entrances.

Calling out Israel for its settler colonial policies is no synonym to vilifying it.

It's more than "calling them out" when they helped create the situation. The Arab league invaded Israel (…)

I was not talking about Arab people, I don’t know where you got that from.

Also before the Arab league invaded Israel, (debatable but not our topic) Israel had to be created as a country. If Israel has the right to exist in West Asia, there are no valid arguments on why Palestine should not have that right as well. Are there?

For the apartheid in South Africa to end, both colonizers and colonized worked together for some sort of solution. Palestine has recognized Israel as part of the Oslo agreement. As long as Israel is not recognizing Palestine, no solution can be implemented, and the Genocide will continue.

to get the Arab League to enforce a demilitarized zone between Palestine and Israel

Let’s say that this is what he’s saying. I don’t see you mentioning what Israel has to do, so this reading cannot not be a solution cause it leaves out the responsibilities of Israel. What would you put on the top of the list of what Israel has to do? My answer to that would be that Israel has to stop bombing and starving, civilians and children, as well as recognize Palestine.

On Genocide, Israel is doing at least 3 of the 5 required for one to be called as such. And ICJ court said "plausible" so far.

Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide

In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
a. Killing members of the group;
b. Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
c. Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
d. Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
e. Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

I am not ignoring the first part, this is why every military action doesn't qualify under that statute but Israel is “plausibly” doing a Genocide according to ICJ. Personally I don’t need a court decision to make up my mind.

Plausible does not mean probable

see dictionary for details?

Apart from that, you haven't said anything about what are Israel’s responsibilities, and you actively ignored my specific question on the matter. We cannot talk solutions without that so I don’t see any point continuing this attempt to have a conversation.

A man set himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, the police said. (www.nytimes.com)

A US Air Force soldier is in critical condition after he set himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC, Sunday. He live streamed the self-immolation action on Twitch where he captured himself standing outside the gates of the Israeli embassy and identifying himself as a member of the US Air Force....

In the birth-place of fascism, they have elected a fascist. Fascists have historically supported Zionism, not Palestine. For me the fact that students in Italy protest for Palestine is loud enough to give me hope.

To my understanding forza nuova was gaining a tiny percentage in elections, bellow 0.30%. Meloni is the prime minister.

This article doesn't mention that -once more- this famine is due to british colonial biopolitics:

The colonial strategies and utilitarian principles by the British authorities exacerbated the Bengal famine. Utilizing Foucault’s concept of biopolitics, I point out how the British viewed Indian bodies discursively. To reaffirm their sense of superiority, they reduced their Indian subjects to animal-like beings’ incapable of controlling their own reproduction.

I'm not sure I understand what you say?

Thanks for the clarifications. Of course noone can be responsible for stuff that happened before their lifetime.

Our responsibility lays on to how we address this colonial past. The way I see things, we need to face it and address it, not put it under the rug. It's the least we can do and its important to do so for the millions of people around the world who were not alive then, but still have to live/survive the outcomes of colonial past policies. Racism would be one of them, the list is long.

To my understanding it does?

The proposed rules will criminalize the non-consensual sharing of intimate images, including deepfakes made by AI tools, which could help deter revenge porn. Cyber-stalking, online harassment, misogynous hate speech and "cyber-flashing," or the sending of unsolicited nudes, will also be recognized as criminal offenses.

I think I see your point. It looks like this proposal is related to humans specifically, not artwork.
