UN official resigns denouncing genocide in Gaza Strip
Craig Mokaber, the director of the New York office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, submitted his resignation a few days ago due to his “inability” UN to “stop” what he described as a “manual case of genocide” in the Gaza Strip, three weeks after the outbreak of the Israel/Hamas war, according to a report by the New York Daily News newspaper relayed by the German Agency.
This is a “textbook case of genocide,” he said in a letter dated October 28 to Volker Turk, the High Commissioner. “The European, nationalist settlement plan for Palestine has entered its final phase,” that of the “rapid destruction of the last vestiges of indigenous Palestinian life,” he continued.
He further accused Western governments of being “totally complicit in this horrific attack”: “Not only do these governments refuse to fulfill their contractual obligations to ‘guarantee compliance’ with the Geneva Convention, but in fact they are actively arming” Israel to continue the attack, they “provide financial and intelligence support” as well as “political and diplomatic cover for Israel’s atrocities.”
The content of his letter is in line with recent posts by Mr Mocaber on social networking sites. “The genocide we are witnessing in Palestine is the result of decades of impunity for Israel, given to it by the US and other Western governments,” as well as “the dehumanization of the Palestinian people by the Western corporate media,” he said yesterday via X (the former Twitter).
