The murder of 21-year-old medic Razan al-Najar was a new horror to add to the crimes of the Israeli Defence Force.
Israel’s government has apparently ordered an investigation, but we know who pulled the trigger and it seems there will be no attempt to bring her to justice because the international community will do nothing about it.
The reason? Countries like the UK are making far too much money selling the guns and ammunition to Israel that allows atrocities like this to take place.
Here’s Channel 4 News:
Thousands have attended the funeral of a 21-year-old medic killed by Israeli fire as she nursed casualties on the Gaza border.

Atrocious @washingtonpost headline suggests Razan al-Najjar’s murder is a mystery and Israel – the occupying army that killed her – is going to solve the case. https://t.co/xTHu7cDSNG pic.twitter.com/OLwT7qirVn

what is there to investigate? whether she died or who killed her? the only purpose of an Israel 'investigation' is to find an excuse to exonerate itself – asking the murderer to investigate themselves is absurd https://t.co/qNrs7oh0sr

Yes it is. So we won’t be getting a straight answer anytime soon. Suggestions that the killer was a woman from Boston have been hotly denied with claims that she left the IDF years ago and wasn’t a sniper in any case.
We are left with a crime that will go unsolved because that’s how the Israeli authorities want it – and with the seething resentment such high-handed ignorance of injustice creates in those who knew the victim.
The murder of an unarmed female Palestinian Nurse by Israeli Forces must be condemned by all reasonable people. The Israeli denial of Human Rights for the people of Gaza will eventually lead to an explosion of violence which is not in the interests of either Palestine or Israel!

But who is going to hold Israel to account?
Debbie Abrahams rightly pointed out: “The international community inc the UK & the UN need to step up. How much more must the ppl of Gaza endure?”
But this indictment by Owen Jones on Twitter is brutal: “Israel’s government knows it can get away with murdering 21 year old female medics because it knows Western governments will arm and back it whatever it does.”
The recent revelations about the amount of money being made by UK companies bear this out.
And that means the Conservative government in the UK will do nothing. Justice means nothing to these people; profit is all.
And that means the corruption that allowed the murder of this young medic runs right to the ballot box you use at every UK election.
