Francis Boyle: Israel should be prosecuted on charges of genocide against Palestinians at the Conference for the Impact of War Against Children, 2017

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
“We see the atrocities that Israel inflicts, everyday, on the Palestinians. Shooting them down, dead, like dogs in the street. Including, and especially, Palestinian children. The lives of Palestinian children count for nothing to the Zionists. And in addition, imposing the genocidal siege on the 1.8 million Palestinians living in Gaza, with no mercy at all. After three genocidal attacks in Gaza, that – again- disproportionately kills women and children.”

Yes, What Israel Is Doing To Palestinians Is Actually Genocide. by Dr. Benjamin L. Corey

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
“In the Israel/Palestine conflict, is Israel guilty of genocide against the Palestinians?
Yes– absolutely.
… I believe the main reason many push back on the idea that Israel is guilty of genocide is because of a lack of understanding of the full nuance of the word, and what genocide can look like in a modern context. While rounding up people for mass executions would be obvious evidence of genocide, the reality is that genocide can take place in ways that are more subtle– making it palatable for the masses, and even seem justified at times.”

Elor Azarya’s ‘normative’ support for genocide by Jonathan Ofir

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
“The campaign in support of Elor Azarya cannot be seen as disconnected from the overall genocidal vein that he and his actions represent. If cold-blooded murder can only be considered ‘murder’ by 5% of the Israeli public, then that means that Netanyahu’s claim that “Israeli soldiers are not murderers” must be an overarching axiom. The axiom means that they cannot be – because Azarya’s murder was crystal clear, it can’t get clearer than that. If the soldiers CANNOT be murderers, it must therefore be because those whom they murder are not real humans. This is the rather unmistakable dehumanization that is so characteristic to genocidal societies.”

Nominee for ambassador to Israel unfit for role by John R. Barker

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
The settlements, combined with an intricate system of 500 checkpoints, ensure the daily vexation and humiliation of Palestinians. Killings of Palestinians at these checkpoints is a regular occurrence. Make no mistake, Israel’s slow strangulation of the Palestinians is ethnic cleansing, pure and simple. In fact, respected lawyer and civil rights activist Stanley L. Cohen, writing for Al Jazeera in a Dec. 26, 2016, opinion piece, characterizes Israel’s policies as “slow-motion genocide.”

Photos: Thousands protest “twin brothers in genocide” Turnbull and Netanyahu in Sydney on Green Left Weekly

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

About 2000 people rallied in Sydney on February 23 to protest the federal government hosting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and its support for Israel’s latest land grabs.

Uncle Ken Canning said: “The same murderous colonial mentality that is killing Palestinians landed here in 1788 and decimated us to 2.7% of the population. It is little wonder that [Prime Minister Malcolm] Turnbull welcomes Netanyahu, they are twin brothers in genocide.”

Video: Protests disrupt Vienna talk by Israeli genocide advocate Ayelet Shaked by Ali Abunimah

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Shaked had been invited as part of a regular event, the “Distinguished Lecture Series.”

The university added: “Following their lectures, we invite our guest lecturers to enter into a dialogue with the expert audience and hold a controversial, open discussion within the framework of the academic discourse. These discussions do not represent an identification with our guests’ theses but rather serve as a forum for discussion.”

The university effectively normalizes the view disseminated by Shaked that the slaughter of mothers for the purpose of preventing births in a specific population group – an act that fits precisely within the international legal definition of genocide – is an appropriate topic for “academic discussion.”

Acceptance of such terms for “dialogue” normalizes the genocidal thesis Shaked endorsed.
