A top United Nations human rights official has called for the effective end to the state of Israel and has resigned over Israel’s “text-book case of genocide” happening to Palestinian in the Gaza Strip.
The UN’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights official Craig Mokhiber said in a public letter on 28 October that at the time of him writing there is a “moment of great anguish” as the world is seeing “genocide unfolding before our eyes.”
The letter was addressed to Volker Turk, the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights saying in a carefully worded statement, “The European, ethno-nationalist, settler colonial project in Palestine has entered its final phase, toward the expedited destruction of the last remnants of indigenous Palestinian life.
“This is a text-book case of genocide.”

He then blasted Western government accusing them of being “wholly complicit in the horrific assault,” which is happening in Gaza.
He publicly outed the US and the UK and most of Europe for “refusing to meet their treaty obligations,” under the Geneva Conventions and for supplying Western weapons to Israel, which is being used to kill innocent Palestinians.
He wrote, “The genocide we are witnessing in Palestine is the product of decades of Israeli impunity provided by the US & other western governments & decades of dehumanization of the Palestinian people by western corporate media.
“Both must end now. Speak up for human rights.”
The former human rights official then effectively called for the end of the state if Israel by the “dismantling of the deeply racist” country.
He added, “We must support the establishment of a single, democratic secular state in all of historic Palestine, with equal rights for Christians, Muslims, and Jews.
“and, therefore, the dismantling of the deeply racist, settler-colonial project and an end to apartheid across the land.”
