Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Sunday, that Israel will not hold any investigation, or cooperate with international inquiries, into the excessive use force against unarmed protesters in Gaza last Friday, leading to the death of 17 Palestinians, in addition to hundreds of injuries.

Lieberman did not only refuse any investigation into the deadly Israeli military assault, but also said that Israel will not cooperate with any inquiry, including potential international investigation.

The Israeli official who live in an illegal Jewish colony in the occupied West Bank, even threatened stronger and more violent military measures against the Palestinian protesters, “especially if any of them try to cross the border fence.”

The Israeli official also echoed previous allegations claiming that “%90 of the protesters, and their families, were paid by Hamas.”

He also rejected statements by the head of Meretz party Tamar Zandberg, who called on the army to investigate the excessive use of force and described the soldiers as trigger happy.

Furthermore, Lieberman said that Meretz Israeli left-wing party “represents the Palestinians, instead of serving Israel’s interests.”

Lieberman went on to claim that at least ten of the slain Palestinians were “members of Hamas,” and added that the soldiers “performed what was necessary and deserve a medal.”

He also alleged that Hamas “allotted 15 Million US Dollars for the processions,” and that “%90 of the protests were Hamas members, and their families, who are paid salaries.”

  1. Lieberman says no investigation & Netanyahu praises massacre of peaceful unarmed protestors???? this is an evil unacceptable unconstitutional response. So this is openly saying Israel is rogue and above the constitutional law.

  2. Wait until they face an enemy that has weapons and will fire back.
    Unarmed children can be shot with impunity, try that on Syrian and Hezbollah fighters. You will be amazed at the response.

  3. Time and Time again, nations have tolerated a dark, racist and inhumane Zionist occupation project that seeks dominance over sacred peoples, lands and spaces in the Middle East and North Africa. The question is why? Anyone with sense knows that the Zionists are nothing more than German and Polish ethnic minorities who adopted and later abandoned others’ religious practices. Among things abandoned was Judaism. In place of religion, they became arrogance racists who have a certain tendency to murder others. Our tolerance allows them to do so without repercussions.

    So, where are we now? Facing us are 1,400 attacked, two dozen murdered, and millions more terrorized. Tolerate it more?

  4. When there is no justice for Palestine and the Palestinian people, there will be no peace for usa. Remember, September 11, 2001 happened due to the atrocités and injustices for thé decades prior to Palestine ?? And with what happened days ago, is in the permenant memory to those who will make history in the future, when there is no security for Palestine ?? there is no security within the western world.!

  5. What a horrible and miserable little man. Oh to be a fly on the wall when it is his turn to stand in front of the God of peace and love.
