July 22nd, 2021 – Back in May 2021, a video surfaced on social media of an Israeli settler in the process of forcibly evicting a Palestinian woman in which he makes the following bold statement to the cameras present during this war crime.

“If I don’t steal it, someone else is going to steal it.”.

– Yaakov Faiuci

Many Israelis deny that Israel has committed any war crimes but international law interprets Israel’s settlements in the West Bank as criminal and crimes against humanity.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”. 

The extensive appropriation of land and the appropriation and destruction of property required to build and expand settlements also breach other rules of international humanitarian law.

Under the Hague Regulations of 1907, the public property of the occupied population (such as lands, forests and agricultural estates) is subject to the laws of usufruct. This means that an occupying state is only allowed a very limited use of this property.

This limitation is derived from the notion that occupation is temporary, the core idea of the law of occupation. In the words of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the occupying power “has a duty to ensure the protection, security, and welfare of the people living under occupation and to guarantee that they can live as normal a life as possible, in accordance with their own laws, culture, and traditions.”.

This is the result of arbitrary policies regarding building Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem which is in Area C (Complete Israeli Control) as defined by the Oslo II interim agreement ratified on September 28th, 1995.

As a result of the crackdown on evicting Palestinians from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem, this ultimately gave Hamas the opportunity to launch rockets into Israel which also led to escalating violence at the al-Aqsa mosque by Israeli authorities.

Tensions between Hamas and Israeli Officials

As a result of Hamas offense on Israel led to Israeli airstrikes on Gaza killed at least 243 Palestinians, including 66 children. Rockets fired from an enclave killed 12 people in Israel and in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem; 29 Palestinians were also killed.

Israel decided to use the foreign media as a tool to trick Hamas into gathering and preparing for a ground invasion by Israeli forces and was ultimately bombed while they gathered in tunnels in Gaza.

The Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit was accused on Friday of deliberately misleading the foreign press that Israeli troops had entered the Gaza Strip the previous night during a massive bombardment of a large Hamas bunker complex in order to trick the terror group into sending operatives into the line of Israeli fire.

Around midnight Thursday, the Israeli military launched its barrage on the tunnel network in the northern Gaza Strip and announced the operation with an ambiguously worded statement, saying: “IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.”.

Fauci decided to capitalize off the viral video by mocking Mona el-Kurd, the Palestinian owner of the home.

Fauci stated during an interview with VICE, “The right I have [to live there] is that the owner of the house wants me to live here and he wants there to be Jews living in this house. I got chosen, for whatever reason, it ended up being me.”

Yaakov Fauci’s far-Right and Conspiratorial Beliefs

Two of Fauci’s Facebook profile pictures depict that he is a avid supporter of former-US President Donald Trump. 

In one photo, Fauci is seen with a “Make America Great Again” hat. In a second photo, is a photo allegedly of himself with a temporary tattoo with Trump’s name on his forehead and an American flag in his hand.

“I fear it may be ‘too late’ for America. It was a nice run. Even Rome fell eventually,” 

– Fauci commenting in his Facebook photo after Biden had won the 2020 elections.

COVID-19 Vaccine Conspiracy Theories

Several of Fauci’s posts show conspiracy theories including the COVID-19 shot.

Last year, he posted an image of the Covid-19 virus photoshopped over the golden calf – a reference to a religious story in which the Israelites worshipped an idol after the long absence of Moses.

Apparently this man is an instigator to fuel more tensions between the Palestinians and the Israelis and it agitates me when ordinary Jewish people who are against the occupation of Palestine being caught in the crossfire of violence.

“Not at all, if anything it’s toned down. The last time they made certain people wear ‘badges’ no one dreamed what was to come either.

It’s really better we nipped it in the bud this time,” Fauci responded to one of his friends who was the son of a Holocaust survivor

His friend showed the post to his mother, who had survived the Holocaust, and she was absolutely disgusted by it image.

Fauci replied to his friend, “You’d think a Shoah [Holocaust] survivor would be screaming bloody murder about forced medical experiments on the population.”

“Who needs Dr. Mengele, when we do it to ourselves,” Fauci continued. Dr. Mengele was the Nazi scientist known as the “Angel of Death” who did forced experiments on the Jewish prisoners in the internment camps during World War II under Adolf Hitler’s rule.

To further expose his utter hypocrisy, he made a post that he had apparently received the COVID-19 vaccine that states:

“After a lot of careful thought, research, and massive internal soul searching with the help of my therapist, I finally decided to bite the bullet and get the shot,” he said. “I realized that my objections were not coming from a holy place and I was just being defiant and non-conformist.”

– Yaakov Fauci’s Facebook post regarding the COVID-19 vaccine

The following excerpt is from the Middle East Monitor’s article regarding Fauci:

Inciting violence 

The settler has made several controversial comments concerning the Israeli bombing of Gaza in 2014, which killed more than 2,200 Palestinians – mostly civilians. 

In a post in June 2014, Fauci said that he would not be “hoping in vain that the Israeli government will finally come to its senses and carpet bomb our enemies into oblivion”, and that he would not be calling for a “Jewish Spring” to rise up and “settle the score against those who have been trying to destroy us for as long as we have existed”. 

He said he wouldn’t be doing so “not because I don’t believe it is right, fair or just” but because of the fear of police arresting him for “expressing what every sane person on planet earth is thinking”.

Fauci described himself as a “coward” who knew what needed to be done, but was not willing to pay the “personal price”. 

In a separate post, he said that he preferred the “nuke and pave approach” in Gaza, but knew it would not happen so offered a plan B. 

The backup plan included cutting off water, electricity, and fuel supplies to Gaza, and that if Palestinians didn’t like it, they could “move to Sudan or Eritrea”. 

“I would ideally say to go and DESTROY all of their infrastructure, but the human rights weenies will be up in arms,” he said. 

In a July 2014 post, he decried Israel for not “effectively bomb[ing]” Gaza and going on the offensive further.

“We think we are being merciful, we think we are morally superior, but the truth is we are acting in the most cruel and immoral way possible against our OWN brothers and sisters”. 

In a Facebook note from November 2009, Fauci made clear that he would not denounce Yaakov Teitel, an American-born Israeli nationalist settler who was convicted of the killing of two Palestinians. 

Fauci’s post, dated before Teitel’s conviction in 2012, stated: “Even if he did do everything he is accused of… I refuse to throw him to the dogs in order to save face and find favour in the eyes of the world”. 

“Arabs are the enemy. Missionaries are the enemy, and while I might not personally choose to utilise such methods to combat them or encourage others to do so, I certainly will NOT NOT NOT condemn anyone that does.”

Elsewhere, in two of Fauci’s profile pictures, he wears a keffiyeh around his head in an attempt to mock Palestinians and link them to terrorism. 

“You always thought I was a terrorist,” he commented under one of the pictures. “I’m trying to score one of those ‘burqa babes’ from Beit Shemesh,” he added. 

Fauci is also the owner of a dangerous dog named Shiksa (a derogatory term used by some Jews to refer to non-Jewish people), which he unleashes on Palestinians as a purported form of protection.

Yaakov Fauci’s Real Identity

In 1997, Justin Fauci graduated from East Meadow High School in Long Island, New York, and then from Brandeis University in 2002, according to online databases. In 2003, a Justin C. Fauci of Long Island, was found to be engaging in forex fraud, and federally charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States government.

In an interview with Vice, Justin Fauci strangely introduced himself as “Jacob,” the English version of his Hebraized name, “Yaakov.” instead of his birth name Justin.

One blog post allegedly shows that Fauci and his partners were able to accumulate nearly $110 million dollars from the fraud, and that Fauci once set fire to $10,000 in cash to show of how much money they were defrauding.

From 2003 and 2009, there is not much activity from Fauci due to the possibility that he was incarcerated. Fauci, with the help of the US Zionist settler organization, Nahalat Shimon International, was able to steal the home of Nabil El-Kurd and his family located in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.

Please do your part in sharing this article to show the harsh reality of the occupation of Palestine.

As a Jew, I feel it is my duty to show the good and the ugly of the Jewish State, because I don’t have my head buried in the sand.

Thank you for taking the time to read this article and leaving with a better understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
