On B’tselem’s Declaration: Israeli Apartheid from the River to the Sea by Jeremy Salt

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.

Israel and the policy of apartheid were born in the same year, 1948, Israel as a colonial-settler declared unilaterally over occupied Palestine on May 15 and apartheid as the election-winning policy of South Africa’s National Party on May 26. On December 9 the same year, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The convention describes genocide as acts intended to destroy “in whole or part” a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group. There is no other way to describe Israel’s intentions in 1948.

Al-Awda calls on the Palestinian people to break free from the shackles of Madrid-Oslo and return to its institutions of the struggle for Liberation and Return by Al-Awda

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.

Al Awda calls on all Palestinians, in the West Bank, Gaza, 1948-Palestine, refugee camps, in exile throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa to demand the immediate resignation of the autocratic PLO Executive Committee, unequivocal rejection of the neo-colonial Palestinian Authority, and the dissolution of all institutions that manifested from the Madrid-Oslo pathway.

No colonized people have attained their liberation by appealing to their oppressors or achieved justice by uniting with racial supremacy or Zionism. The Palestinian people are not an exception, especially as we are subjected to an ongoing genocide.

Israel at the Current Global Juncture by Judith Deutsch

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.

Israel’s archives, temporarily opened in the 1990s, allowed a group of “new historians” to document genocidal intent that preceded the Holocaust and Israeli statehood. For example, the Zionists compiled extensive data about the Palestinian population to be used in the planned expulsion and assassinations of Palestinians. After World War II, Israel at first opposed the allegation of genocide to any other situation except the German Holocaust.

Morocco’s Islamist backing for Israel normalisation is a game changer by Khalil al-Anani

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.

Before he became the head of government, Othmani railed against the establishment of normal relations with Israel in the absence of Palestinian rights, writing an article entitled “Normalization Is a Civilizational Genocide” that was strongly critical of Egypt’s and Jordan’s normalisation of relations with Israel in 1979 and 1994, respectively.

Othmani’s signature on the normalisation deal with Israel is thus unprecedented, marking the first time that the head of an Islamic party has signed such an agreement – and calling into question the credibility of Islamists with regards to the Palestinian cause.

Israel Admits its Guilt (and Other Arguments) by Jim Miles

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.

There are two solutions left.  First is the status quo, a slow genocide and ethnic removal of the Palestinian people, preferably to surrounding Arab states (Saudi Arabia, a US-Israeli ally would certainly not welcome them), or less preferably to small islets of apartheid.  The whole process could be sped up by a regional war, say with Iran, under cover of which Israel could attempt to expel masses of Palestinians.

The second solution is what many have demanded of Canada (remember, no double standards):  justice and restoration – of rights, of property, of health and education, of infrastructure, of legal equality as well as full political participation in the governance of the country. Simple solution, but entirely against the beliefs of the current Israeli system.

No alternative to abiding by international law by Phil Butler

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 are aware that in the burning cauldron of the Middle East, there are two kinds of nations and two kinds of people. There are nations (and sometimes people) on fire because they are real or perceived foes of the Israelis. Then there are those enjoying moderate peace because they abide, as a people or individuals, with everything the Zionists want. And anyone who does not abide, personally or officially, is branded with the white-hot iron of Zionist fury. Anti-Semite, this is the public relations brand stuck on anyone questioning the genocide in Gaza.

When It Comes to Israel and Palestine, Germany Needs to Remember Its Commitment: ‘Never Again’ by Agneska Bloch

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.

On one hand is Germany’s “special relationship” with Israel, rooted in Germany’s “special historical responsibility for Israel’s security,” as German Chancellor Angela Merkel put it in a 2008 speech to the Knesset, Israel’s parliament. On the other is the oft-repeated injunction “nie wieder” (never again), a commitment to prevent genocide based on the principles of human rights and the protection of minorities after the Holocaust. Yet the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, which the normalization deals reinforce, and annexation, which they only postpone, are clear violations of this duty.

Israel’s Genocide in Gaza Goes Uninterrupted, But Is Europe Finally Taking Notice? by Miko Peled

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.

According to a report published by Human Rights Watch (HRW), the issue of complicity with genocide is quite clear. “Prior jurisprudence has defined the term complicity as aiding and abetting, instigating, and procuring […] Complicity to commit genocide in Article 2(3)(e) refers to all acts of assistance or encouragement that have substantially contributed to, or have had a substantial effect on, the completion of the crime of genocide.”… According to that definition, both the EU states and the United States are complicit in the crime of genocide.
