Gaza 'Textbook Case of GENOCIDE' - Holocaust Scholar

Notable that historian Raza Segal calling Gaza actions a 'textbook case of genocide' is himself an Israeli, tho teaching in New Jersey USA

Some confusion over the term 'genocide', as it is commonly assumed this means only 'kill everyone of a race' ... but that is not the definition of the term per the 1948 United Nations declaration, as noted by Canada's national CBC news

Genocide includes killing even PART of a group, targeted as a group
Or also 'serious bodily or mental harm' to the group
Or also 'inflicting conditions of life calculated to bring about the physical destruction of the group'
Or also 'measures intended to prevent births within the group'

UN original document

So Nazis were 'genocidal' even if intending to destroy Jews only in Europe or in their territories, and even if only wishing to make Jews homeless and so on

Israel claims the WW2 mass killing of German civilians by allied powers, is 'justifying precedent' for their destruction of Gaza... but those WW2 actions seem to have been 'genocidal' as well per UN definition

The targeted destruction of hospitals, mental terror destroying one's ability to live as a group in one's homeland, are also genocidal

From the CBC article above -
"One key element is intent. Anisha Patel, a legal researcher with the group Law for Palestine says it has identified more than 400 instances "from all levels of the Israeli elite" expressing what the organization considers evidence of genocidal intent."

One element beyond the Israel-Gaza war -

On the UN definition, the activities of many societies, destroying the economic or mental abilities of young people to have children, is also genocidal ... elites genociding the peoples amidst whom they live
