Netanyahu proposes establishing a CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT in Gaza while his troops continue to slaughter more civilians
05/14/2024 // Richard Brown // Views

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared his vision for the future governance of Gaza, expressing a desire for a demilitarized civilian administration supported by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

In an interview with U.S. talk show host Dr. Phil, Netanyahu emphasized the importance of continuous demilitarization to prevent the resurgence of terrorist threats even after dismantling the militant infrastructure.

He proposed the establishment of a civilian government in Gaza comprising individuals committed to peace, aiming to promote stability and harmony in the region. Netanyahu's remarks contrast with the views of some members of his government who advocate the destruction and depopulation of Gaza to facilitate Jewish settlement.

His troops have also killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians there over the past seven months.

Meanwhile, U.S. officials have advocated for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to govern Gaza, despite widespread skepticism among Palestinians regarding the PA's effectiveness and its cooperation with Israeli authorities.

The prime minister's statements coincided with the ongoing Israeli military offensive in Rafah, resulting in the displacement of over 100,000 Palestinians. Netanyahu affirmed Israel's commitment to military intervention in Gaza to combat terrorism.

While U.S. President Biden has cautioned against Israel's actions in Rafah and threatened to withhold weapons shipments, Netanyahu remains resolute in Israel's defense capabilities, dismissing concerns about potential limitations on armament supplies.

The exodus of Palestinians from Gaza's last refuge accelerated Sunday, May 12, as Israeli forces pushed deeper into the southern city of Rafah. Israel also pounded the territory's devastated north, where some Hamas militants have regrouped in areas the military said it had cleared months ago.

Israel claims that Rafah is Hamas' last stronghold. Some 300,000 of the more than one million civilians sheltering there have fled the city following evacuation orders from Israel.

Egypt intends to formally join South Africa's case against Israel at the ICC

Neighboring Egypt issued its strongest objection yet to the Rafah offensive, saying it intends to formally join South Africa's case at the International Court of Justice (ICC) alleging Israel is committing genocide in Gaza. Egypt's foreign ministry statement cited "the worsening severity and scope of the Israeli attacks against Palestinian civilians."

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk said in a statement that he cannot see how a full-scale invasion of Rafah can be reconciled with international humanitarian law.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated opposition to a major military assault on Rafah and told CBS that Israel would "be left holding the bag on an enduring insurgency" without an exit from Gaza and a postwar governance plan.

Gaza has been left without a functioning government, leading to a breakdown in public order and allowing Hamas' armed wing to reconstitute itself even in the hardest-hit areas. On Sunday, Hamas touted attacks against Israeli soldiers in Rafah and near Gaza City.

Israel has yet to offer a detailed plan for postwar governance in Gaza, saying only that it will maintain open-ended security control over the enclave of about 2.3 million Palestinians.

Internationally mediated talks over a ceasefire and hostage release appeared to be at a standstill. In Tel Aviv, hundreds of protesters stood outside military headquarters and raised candles during a minute-long siren marking the day's start, demanding an immediate cease-fire deal to return the hostages.

Netanyahu has rejected postwar plans proposed by the United States for the PA to govern Gaza with support from Arab and Muslim countries. Those plans depend on progress toward the creation of a Palestinian state, which Israel's government opposes.
