(WMR)—The attack policy that the Israel Defense Force (IDF) has used in indiscriminately targeting civilians in Gaza mirrors the policy of the Ukrainian government in attacking civilians in eastern Ukraine. Moreover, the two operations, Israel’s “Protective Edge” and Ukraine’s “Anti-terrorist operation,” have something else in common. Both were developed by the same Zionist fascist elements who are calling the shots in Jerusalem and Kiev.
Ukrainian-Israeli billionaire Igor Kolomoisky, who has served as the governor of Dnepropetrovsk province in eastern Ukraine since March, has spent billions of dollars beefing up the Ukrainian army with advanced weapons used to target civilians in eastern Ukraine. The latest operation by Ukraine saw an airstrike on residential apartment buildings in Snezhnoe in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic. A number of civilians, including women, the elderly, and children have been killed by Ukrainian forces financed by Kolomoisky. In addition, Kolomoisky has relied on the help of ex-IDF forces ever since he helped oust Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in February. It is believed that Kolomoisky funded the arrival in Ukraine of a team of ex-IDF commandos, known as the “Blue Helmets of Maidan” and led by an Israeli commando code-named “Delta,” to fight alongside anti-Yanukovych forces in the Maidan Square uprising. The Israeli Blue Helmets of Maidan fought alongside a number of neo-Nazi units, including those from the Svoboda and Right Sector organizations.
Blue Helmets are now believed to be involved in carrying out, on the orders of Kolomoisky, attacks on the Russian-speaking majority living in eastern Ukraine.
In Gaza, Israeli attacks have killed, at last report, 182 civilians. Of these, 80 percent are civilian deaths, according to the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Well over 40 children have been killed in Gaza. Israel has attacked hospitals, Gaza’s water-supply system, and a clinic for the handicapped.
In eastern Ukraine, forces supported by Kolomoisky and his ex-IDF advisers have launched rocket attacks and air strikes on civilian neighborhhods in Luhansk, Slaviansk, Dzerzhinsk, Marinka, Horlivka, Karlovka, Mykolayivka, and Luganskaya. A number of children, women, and elderly have been killed by the Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine.
The U.S. neoconservatives, who are over 95 percent Jewish and Zionist, have applauded the genocidal actions in eastern Ukraine of Kolomoisky and the puppet Zionist government in Kiev and Netanyahu’s government in Gaza. The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously voted to support Israel’s actions in Gaza while both the House and the Senate have initiated action to increase U.S. sanctions on Russia in support of the Kiev regime.
