Thus demoralization isn’t limited to terminal patients, and doctors broken by a ruthlessly monetizing system of health care. Needless to say perhaps, demoralization syndrome is difficult to distinguish from widespread despair and the pandemic of depression. But having basically lost my 20’s to acute depression, and grappling with demoralization recently, I can attest that they aren’t the same thing. Then there’s the war in Ukraine, an escalating World War I proxy war between Russia and America/NATO that could explode into World War III at any time. Congruently, how many Americans fall into demoralization syndrome after another mass slaughter in this country?

Israel/OPT: Investigate War Crimes During August Offensive On GazaThe International Criminal Court (ICC) must investigate unlawful attacks committed during Israel’s August 2022 assault on the Gaza Strip as war crimes, Amnesty International said today in a new research briefing. The briefing, ‘They were just kids’: Evidence of war crimes during Israel’s August 2022 Gaza offensive, sets out why these attacks may amount to war crimes. Of the remaining 16 Palestinians who were killed, Amnesty International concluded that 14 were civilians. The unguided rockets used by Palestinian armed groups in Gaza, including the Al-Quds Brigades, are inherently inaccurate. Virtually all the witnesses, survivors, and victims’ relatives interviewed by Amnesty International demanded accountability.5 months ago Scoop NZ

BRIEFING NOTES: (1) OPT; ( 2) RussiaSpokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Ravina ShamdasaniLocation: GenevaDate: 28 October 2022Subject: (1) OPT; (2) Russia1) OPTThis week saw further violence in the occupied West Bank, raising concerns about the possible resumption of unlawful targeted killings by Israeli security forces. During operations on Tuesday, 25 October against “the Lion’s Den” members of the Israeli security forces shot dead three men in the old city of Nablus. Four members of the Israeli security forces and one settlement guard have been killed by Palestinians in the West Bank. We recall that international human rights law only permits the use of firearms when absolutely necessary, when there is an imminent threat to life or of serious injury. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, is deeply concerned about this latest development, which infringes even further on international human rights norms and standards.5 months ago Scoop NZ
