Israel’s blonde bombshells and real bombs in Gaza

By Yosefa Loshitzky

“Israel’s cruelty — manifested through its use (or rather abuse) of
language, and creative “strategy” of “re-branding” its continuous
assaults on the Palestinians as a war of defense, using their
tautological logic to justify the extermination of an “entity” which
they designate as “hostile” — should be interpreted in the spirit of
Giorgio Agamben. The influential Italian philosopher argued in relation
to the Nazi death camps that the “correct question to pose concerning
the horrors committed in the camps is, therefore, not the hypocritical
one of how crimes of such atrocity could be committed against human
beings” but what were “the juridical procedures and deployments of
power by which human beings could be so completely deprived of their
rights and prerogatives that no act committed against them could
appear any longer as a crime.”
