Don't be part of Isreali propaganda, brainwashing —Envoy

Don't be part of Isreali propaganda, brainwashing —Envoy

The palestinian Ambassador to Nigeria, Abdullah Abu Shawesh has charged Nigerians, Africans and the world at large to resist the western propaganda and brainwashing as regards the genocide carried out in Gaza.

Shawesh made the call on Wednesday at a press conference in Abuja, drawing attention to the inhumane treatment, continuous killings and mass graves in Gaza.

The Ambassador charged that, everyone has an essential role to play as a game-changer, to ensure that the narrative does not remain the same and that the inhumane treatment meted out on the people in Gaza be condemned.

The Ambassador, declared that it is not the Israeli-Hamas War, but the Israeli war against the Palestinian people. Also, not a conflict; it's the Israeli occupation.

He however commended the current global uprising, supporting the cause of Palestine, as "the youth on campuses are challenging the Zionist scarecrows and sacred cows of anti-Semitism accusation that they used to stifle any critical voices against their brutal, vicious, and bloody policies and measures.

"The youth from around the world are rewriting modern history, changing the political discourse, and creating new political orders. Don't miss this opportunity, be part of the current global Intifada, give your contribution, and make positive changes.

"We are at an inflection point in history, with deep and real changes occurring before our eyes. The Intifada (uprising) that has erupted globally to support the just Palestinian cause, the falling of democracy, free speech, and human rights myths in the so-called free world indicate a new historical phase.

"The current war stands out as unprecedented in the scale of death, destruction, and human suffering it has incurred, with repercussions that will echo for generations to come.Mass graves are unfortunate facts in Gaza today, we all need to remember Al Tantura massacre and its mass grave.

Shawesh while quoting the UNHR Expert stated “We are horrified at details emerging from mass graves recently unearthed in the Gaza Strip. Over 390 bodies have been discovered at Nasser and Al Shifa hospitals, including of women and children, with many reportedly showing signs of torture and summary executions, and potential instances of people buried alive.

"On May 2, Dr. Adnan Al Bursh, a 50-year-old head of the orthopedic department at Al Shifa hospital, who had been injured and arrested by Israeli while on duty, passed away on April 19 in Ofer Prison. His body remains withheld by the Israeli occupation.

"Most of the time, once arrested these detainees remain incommunicado and they are subjected to shocking inhumane treatment. Among inhumane treatment they have described to us waterboarding, severe beatings, attacks by dogs, being forced to hold a stress position for hours, sometimes 12 hours, 24 hours, and being forced to wear diapers instead of accessing the toilet.”

"Noting that the Israeli occupation authority denied Mr. Lazzarini entry to the Gaza Strip for the second time since the beginning of the war its field invasion of most of the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army converted a number of schools into military bases and detention facilities. In a report published on 13 December 2023, Euro-Med revealed that the Israeli army has turned schools sheltering 10s of thousands of displaced people into military centers and field execution sites as part of its genocide against Palestinians.

"It is also important to point out that the Israeli war is not limited to military attacks, but extends to all aspects of life, the most important of which are financial deductions and withholding of clearing funds from the Palestinian government, which has put the latter in an ongoing dilemma for years and pushed the entire Palestinian society to the brink of the abyss.

Finally, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day on May 3, UNESCO awarded the Palestinian journalists covering the Israeli genocidal war in Gaza the 2024 UNESCO Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize for their brave and courageous work. It is noted that the Israeli occupation army killed 135 press correspondents, detained another 100, with 45 of them under administrative detention, and 4 of them still missing.
