A lot of people like to spread lies and distortions and rumors. But Richard Kemp knows the truth, and is telling it like never before.
Richard Kemp and his military career
If there’s one person who can explain Gaza, its Richard Kemp. His military career is exemplary. Richard started as an infantry soldier in the British Army in 1977. He rose through the ranks, and became a platoon commander with the 3rd Battalion, based in Palace Barracks, Belfast. Richard continued to shine. Due to his hard work and success, he became lieutenant in 1980, and captain in 1985.
From 2001 to 2006, Kemp was attached to the Cabinet Office. He was briefly Commander of Operation Fingal in Afghanistan in 2003. Since Richard has much international military experience, he is uniquely qualified to offer his perspective on what is happening in Gaza.
Richard Kemp and his expert opinion on Israel and Gaza
Kemp testified before the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict. He denied that Israel engaged in war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Gaza War. Kemp based his assessment on publicly available information from both sides, press reports and his 30-year experience of counter-terrorism operations and planning.
In June 2009, Kemp wrote a report called, “HAMAS, THE GAZA WAR AND ACCOUNTABILITY UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW”. In this paper, Kemp accused Hamas of deploying women and children as suicide attackers, and wrote that in Gaza, “women and children are trained and equipped to fight, collect intelligence and ferry arms and ammunition between battles”.
When a report came out accusing Israel of war crimes, Kemp spoke at the United Nations Human Rights Council. He said, “Of course innocent civilians were killed. War is chaos and full of mistakes. There have been mistakes by the British, American and other forces in Afghanistan and in Iraq, many of which can be put down to human error. But mistakes are not war crimes…Based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: During Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in the combat zones than any other army in the history of warfare.”
This is one of the most important videos one will ever see on Israel. Its expert testimony completely defends the IDF and blames the Hamas terrorists. Let’s remember who we are dealing with after all – mMslim terrorists.
