After rejecting a ceasefire agreement, Israel increased its bombing of the southern Gaza city of Rafah Monday night. In the small hours Tuesday, the eastern section of the border town was leafleted, then heavily bombed, while the crossing with Egypt, the only avenue of escape, was seized, with twenty people there reportedly being executed by the Israeli army. Whether or not this bodes the long-promised ground invasion of the city, where more than a million and a half Palestinian civilians have fled over the course of the now seven months-long genocide campaign, is difficult to determine; bombing civilians is one thing, but facing the waiting soldiers of Gaza’s resistance is quite another.

Laith Marouf is the Palestinian-Canadian founder of FreePalestine.Video. The long-time multimedia consultant and producer is currently chronicling the Palestine disaster from is base in Beirut. Free Palestine Video says it’s meant to fill a “large gap” and provide coverage, “…in the absence of media supporting the resistance forces in the English language due to the ban in the West.”

Laith Marouf and the next stage in an epochal struggle for the future.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded December 2nd and 3rd, 2023.

On November 16th, Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau received a “notice of intention to seek prosecution by the International Criminal Court”. Trudeau is one of four Canadian government officials cited in the notice for their complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the state of Israel since the commencement of its bombardment of Gaza on October 7th.

The notice, issued by the UK-based, International Centre of Justice for Palestinians and acted upon by its Canadian associates in the Legal Working Group for Canadian Accountability under the principles of Universal Jurisdiction is supported, the ICJP maintains by, “…Canada’s support of Israel’s armed forces where there is demonstrable evidence that international crimes may have already been committed, and when there is clear evidence that further crimes against civilians will imminently be perpetrated.

Dimitri Lascaris in the first half.

And; in addition to the war crimes being committed in Gaza by Israel, as noted by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk; namely, “The collective punishment by Israel of Palestinian civilians… [and] … unlawful forcible evacuation of civilians.” there is too the matter of the material manner in which Israel’s crimes are being committed. Specifically, the “materiel” allegedly being used by its military, that in themselves constitute crimes.

Israel has proven its willingness to use internationally banned weapons like white phosphorous in Gaza in past attacks – and photographic evidence reveals it is doing so now – but what of the generationally destructive depleted uranium?

But first, Dimitri Lascaris and seeking justice for Canada’s role aiding and abetting the crime of the century in Gaza.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, John Helmer Gaza Special October 8, 2023

Listen. Hear.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded October 8th, 2023.

Yesterday’s attacks emanating from the Gaza Strip against Israeli military installations and soldiers, and raids on the towns and citizens adjacent the separation wall and deeper into Israel is all that is news today. Already, mass casualty bombing raids have killed hundreds of civilians in the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, in what can only be described as an announcement of war crimes to come, prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu said civilians in Gaza – widely acknowledged as less a place where people live than an “open air prison” – should “leave the Gaza Strip” where, he promises, terrible and widespread attacks will kill many more.

Netanyahu’s admission of intentions to commit mass atrocities accompanies his declaration of war, and the imposition of conditions of war within Israel. This is a God-sent distraction from the prime minister’s severe political troubles, seeing a full year of massive public protests against his constitutional changes to the country’s judiciary – amendments his critics charge undermine Israeli democracy.

A new foreign war must come as a welcome distraction for the Americans, who will use it to reset media messaging away from the Ukraine debacle, even as its EU ally hope to sweep under its collective carpet the problem of growingly restive home populations. Meanwhile, none could be happier for a change of media focus than Canada’s hapless Liberal party government, seeing its recent Parliamentary Nazi feting embarrassment overshadowed.

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. Principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.
Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘Australian Fascism: How It Destroyed the Courts’, and his latest, still steaming hot of the presses, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’.

John’s latest articles at Dances with Bears, ‘NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY – POLAND IS AFRAID TO UPSET THE NATO WAR AGAINST RUSSIA BY PROSECUTING YAROSLAV HUNKA’ and ‘CANADA AND THE NATO ALLIANCE HUNKER DOWN TO DEFEND RACE WAR AGAINST RUSSIA — THE NEW EVIDENCE’ highlight the historical horrors behind that Canadian embarrassment.

Today, John Helmer and racing to keep up with the West’s rehabilitation of Nazism, and the Hamas lightning war in Gaza.
