News of famine and loss of life in Gaza should not surprise us as Israelis continue their deadly assault on Palestinians or anyone within the Zionist state’s kill zone.

The murder of World Central Kitchen humanitarian workers struck down by Israeli Defense Force missiles have again brought words of “sorrow” and calls for investigation. There was presidential outrage in the White House and calls for a thorough probe from the Defense Dept.

What’s truly outrageous is the White House is still sending weapons to Israel. “The Biden administration approved the transfer of thousands more bombs to Israel on the same day Israeli airstrikes in Gaza killed seven aid workers for the charity group World Central Kitchen,” the Washington Post reported April 4.

“The State Department approved the transfer of more than 1,000 MK82 500-pound bombs, over 1,000 small-diameter bombs, and fuses for MK80 bombs, all from authorizations granted by Congress several years before the latest hostilities between Israel and Hamas began, said the U.S. officials, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive arms deals.”


Meanwhile Al Jazeerah reported President Biden’s administration “is weighing whether to go ahead with an $18bn arms transfer package to Israel that would include dozens of F-15 aircraft.”

So much for Mr. Biden’s outrage and demands that Israel protect civilians, institute an immediate cease fire and expand humanitarian aid to starving Gazans.

Israel is relentless and committed to the destruction of the Palestinian people and anyone else who gets in the way. As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, these things happen in war, which is a misnomer. This isn’t war, it’s slaughter.

The military strike April 1 destroyed vehicles traveling a road known for relief efforts, and World Central Kitchen’s work delivering food and supplies was coordinated with Israeli Defense Forces. 

The tragic deaths attracted much attention because of the viciousness of the military assault on civilians, and most of those who died were from European and Western countries.

“Despite coordinating movements with the IDF, the convoy was hit as it was leaving the Deir al-Balah warehouse, where the team had unloaded more than 100 tons of humanitarian food aid brought to Gaza on the maritime route.

‘This is not only an attack against WCK, this is an attack on humanitarian organizations showing up in the most dire of situations where food is being used as a weapon of war.

This is unforgivable,’ said World Central Kitchen CEO Erin Gore. The seven killed are from Australia, Poland, United Kingdom, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada, and Palestine.” World Central Kitchen has stopped its work in Gaza.

Israel has been consistent in her devilish deeds. This is surely the Jewish state showing its murderous nature and its bloodlust. Israel has been starving Gaza with a 17-year blockade and as the UN agency for Palestinian refugees reported, more children have been killed in Gaza in recent months “than in four years of conflict worldwide.” Almost 33,000 Palestinians have been killed, around two-thirds of them women and children, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry.

“I say and ask in the name of Allah, the Great Mahdi, and in the name of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, if the Muslim World, during Ramadan, focuses and stands as a united ummah and says to Israel: ‘You must stop. You will stop or Allah will stop you.’ I warn you, Netanyahu, your days are limited.  

And Israel will not be happy with the chastisement of Allah and neither will we as Believers be upset when Allah’s chastisement reaches our doors,” the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said on the first day of Ramadan on the Nation of Islam’s Ramadan Prayer Line (now called the Ummah Reflects podcast).

“What should we do in the face of a beast in human form? How should we react? How can the Muslim World believe that Allah is going to bless them in this Ramadan, if in this Ramadan they don’t give a thought or a prayer for our beloved Muslims in Palestine, and in the West Bank, in Gaza, in other parts of the world?

Allah is plaguing the earth because he intends to set down every tyrant. … I’m not trying to make you upset, but if what is happening does not make us upset, we are very, very sick. And it soon will be at our door since we don’t feel the hurt of others and rise to do something about it.

“Then Allah will take our blessing away and famine will stretch from one end of the earth to another. War will stretch from one end of the earth to another. Bombs will fall and even nuclear weapons will be used. This is the War of Armageddon and Allah Himself is leading the war.

“None shall escape what God is intending when he removes the wicked from the face of the earth and sets up a government of universal peace based on truth and justice,” the Minister said.

Mr. Biden, like Mr. Netanyahu, should beware. He is a partner in genocide with the Israelis and his partnership is already costing him a political price. There is rising anger among Democrats and others who see the destruction in Gaza and who are sick of it.

They don’t want tax dollars or U.S. arms flowing to Israel and are threatening to punish the incumbent president in upcoming national elections. Mr. Netanyahu is growing increasingly unpopular in Israel as discontent over the war grows and more Israelis reject military service.

These signs, worldwide condemnation and hundreds of thousands taking to streets in protests against Gaza genocide should be enough of a signal to change course.

But when rulers act with the hearts of beasts, their logic vanishes and they ignore and target an advisor with divine insight and counsel. Without change, their blindness and dark hearts only hasten the doom that Allah (God) has promised and verily He never breaks His promise.
