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.

Genocide Watch, a global NGO set up in 1999 to predict, prevent, stop and punish genocide as defined in the Genocide Convention, has issued a warning that there may be plans in place for genocide in Kashmir… This is not a situation the world can afford to take lightly. It is obvious that Kashmiris face very real danger. Analysts have been comparing their conditions of life to those of the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza strip.

Genocide Watch: Israel’s Foreign Ministry Issues Report Defending Conduct in Gaza War

Israel has refused to cooperate with the United Nations Human Rights Council’s inquiry into the 50-day conflict, denouncing it as biased. With the council expected to publish its findings as soon as Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Anyone who wants to continue with an automatic indictment against Israel, which is baseless, can waste his time reading the U.N. commission report.” Mr. Netanyahu suggested instead that people read the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s 280-page study of the operation, or one produced over the weekend by five former generals from other countries.
