"Human rights" organizations have created a new rule that applies to Israel and Israel only:

Israel must provide free electricity to its enemies.

B'Tselem says "The PA’s wrongful actions towards Gaza residents do not mean Israel can shirk its responsibility for their fate." Meaning, if the PA refuses to pay for electricity, Israel must shoulder the costs.

Gisha says the same: "Even if the PA asks it to do so, Israel has its hand on the switch and would be complicit in and accountable for the certain devastation that would occur in the Strip as a result of further interruption in supply."

And Human Rights Watch says, "Israel has legal responsibilities to civilians in the territory. ...International law – and basic decency – require Israel to not further cut the supply of electricity to Gaza."

But Israel has no problem supplying Gaza with electricity when it gets paid. This is what it's done for well over a decade.

In other words, "human rights" organizations have created an entirely new rule of human rights law that applies only to Israel.

If these "human rights' organizations were truly so concerned over Gazans having so little electricity, they could appeal to the Arab world to pay the electricity bill. They could appeal to oil-rich Arab countries to provide fuel for Gaza's power plant. They could lobby EU nations to pay the PA's electric bill. They could insist that Egypt allow Palestinians to move across the border.

All of these things would help lessen the problem.

But for some reason they aren't insisting that anyone in the world do anything to help Gazans except the one nation that Gaza has attacked with rockets thousands of times.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
