Israeli Spokesperson RATTLED And ON THE ROPES - Mark Regev Finally Under Pressure

Owen Jones presents a critical perspective on Israel's actions in Gaza, accusing them of war crimes, violating international law, and using hunger as a tool in the conflict.

Owen Jones discusses the Israeli government's actions in Gaza, particularly focusing on the impact on the civilian population. He references information from the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem, stating that Gaza is experiencing a severe humanitarian crisis, with about 2.2 million people surviving on minimal resources, leading to widespread hunger.

He criticizes Israel's 17-year-long blockade of Gaza, which has resulted in 80% of the population depending on humanitarian aid and 44% being food insecure even before the recent conflict. They argue that Israel's restrictions on essential supplies like fuel and electricity, along with bombings that have destroyed infrastructure, make it challenging for aid agencies to distribute food efficiently.

Owen accuses Israel of using hunger as a weapon of war, despite allowing some humanitarian aid into Gaza. They argue that Israel's actions violate international humanitarian law and contribute to a looming famine that could lead to hundreds of Palestinians dying from hunger daily.

The video asserts that Israel's demand for people to flee their homes is a genocidal act. They claim that destroying homes and limiting essential resources while overcrowding people into smaller spaces is a deliberate strategy to prevent them from returning.

Owen Jones challenges the Israeli government's narrative and attempts to downplay the death toll, citing studies and statistics to argue that the official numbers are likely significant underestimates. They also address accusations of anti-Semitism, stating that questioning Israel's actions is not inherently anti-Semitic but rather a critique of specific policies.

According to Owen, Israel claims institutional bias against them within the UN system and raises doubts about the fairness of the process.
