UN should urgently put an end to Israeli crimes against Palestinians, Iran’s envoy says on News Broadcasting Service

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.

A senior official with Iran’s UN mission in Geneva has taken the floor of the Human Rights Council to denounce Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip, calling on the world body to take urgent action to stop the regime’s atrocities.

“Over the past seven decades, Palestine has endured countless crimes, including massacre, ethnic cleansing, demographic change, systematic torture and arbitrary killing, in addition to all forms of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity. It seems as though they have become Israel’s routine practice ever since the onset of its endless occupation [back in 1948],” Seyyed Mohammad Sadatinejad said at the Council’s 48th regular session on Saturday.

Kamala Harris Tells Student Who Accuses Israel of ‘Ethnic Genocide’: ‘Your Truth Cannot be Suppressed’ on C-SPAN

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.

Harris’ exchange with the college student came during a classroom visit to northern Virginia’s George Mason University… the student said, “You brought up how the power of the people and demonstrations and organizing is very valuable in America. But I see that over the summer, there have been, like, protests and demonstrations in astronomical numbers standing with Palestine, but then just a few days ago there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel, which hurts my heart because it’s an ethnic genocide and a displacement of people — the same that happened in America — and I’m sure you’re aware of this. I bring this up also because of the issue of how Americans are struggling because of lack of health care, public health care, lack of affordable housing and all this money ends up going to inflaming Israel and backing Saudi Arabia and whatnot. And I think that the people have spoken very often in what they do need, and I feel like there’s a lack of listening. And I just feel like I need to bring this up because it affects my life and people I really care about.”

Victims of the Sabra and Shatila massacre remembered on Morning Star

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.

Fatima,who lost several members of her family during the three-day killing spree, said that the “culture of impunity” that allows Israel to carry out atrocities without recourse must come to an end. She said it was because of this that the genocide of the Palestinian people has continued since around one million people were forced from their homes in the 1948 Nakba, when the state of Israel was created.
… Despite the UN General Assembly stating in December 1982 that the events were a genocide — under opposition from the US, Britain, Canada and others — nobody has been held accountable for the killings.

Sabra and Shatila: memories of a massacre by Steve Sweeney

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 late Robert Fisk, one of the first journalists to enter the camp after the killings, reported: “After three days of rape, fighting and brutal executions, militias finally leave the camps with 1,700 dead.” Others, including the Lebanese Red Cross, numbered the dead at 3,500.

The exact total may never be known as Israeli-supplied bulldozers moved swiftly into the camp, dumping decaying corpses into mass graves that were later hit by bombs.

What isn’t in doubt is that what happened in Shatila and the neighbouring Sabra district over the three days was a genocide — the United Nations general assembly confirmed it as such in December 1982.

Was Sabra and Shatila a genocide? by Donald Wagner

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.

No Israeli and not a single Lebanese militia leader was tried or convicted for the genocide at Sabra and Shatila and the US escaped accountability for abandoning the Palestinians.

The Sabra and Shatila massacre was a clear case of genocide by any standard of international law, yet the responsible parties escaped prosecution and conviction. Indeed, transcripts of discussions between senior Israeli officials and the Lebanese Forces militia starting in January 1982 reveal the genocidal intent.

The transcripts, published in 2018, include talk of “cleaning out of the [Palestinian] refugee camps” and the need for “several Deir Yassins” – a reference to the notorious April 1948 massacre of Palestinians in a village near Jerusalem during the Nakba. They also contain explicit references to the decimation and expulsion of the Palestinian refugee population from Lebanon so that “Sabra would become a zoo and Shatila Beirut’s parking place.”

While US officials and mainstream media avoid the topic, the pattern of genocide and injustice against Palestinians continues.
