Israel's dirty hands during genocide in Rwanda
Israel's dirty hands have been behind many atrocious crimes around the globe since its illegal birth. The pariah state had its bloody hands all over the Rwanda genocidal campaigns.
During spring of 1994, between 500,000 and 1,000,000 Tutsi civilians in Rwanda were massacred by the government and its supporters, nominally to prevent the implementation of a power-sharing deal negotiated by the international community.
Israel exported rifles and ammunition to Rwanda which was used by the regime in its genocide, but the extent of it has remained uncertain, and no one involved has ever been held to account.
Knowing that such information can be quite damaging to the image of the apartheid state, it obviously wants to gag any leakage of such information.
Israel’s Supreme Court has shot down a Freedom of Information request by attorneys related to the nation’s export of arms to Rwanda during the 1990-95 period, accepting the Defense Ministry’s argument that national security depended on keeping the matter secret. The court’s ruling will likely keep it that way.
