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.

International-Lawyers.Org called the Council to put an end to human rights abuses occurring in Palestine.  In Gaza, unarmed civilians including children, medical personnel, journalists and persons with disabilities had been victims of live ammunition by soldiers, particularly during the great march protests.  As all actions were taken with the intention to destroy Palestinian people, the Council was urged to investigate whether Israel was committing genocide against the people of Palestine.

Hamas’s reflection on the report of the Independent Commission of Inquiry on the 2014 Gaza aggression

The report of the UN Human Rights Commission of Inquiry does not reflect the massive destruction caused by the Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip, and it is drafted in a biased approach that favors the Israeli occupation. It equates the Israeli executioner with the Palestinian victim, and justifies the war crimes Israel committed in Gaza. Therefore, Hamas demands the UN Human Rights Council to… [2] Re-draft the report to include the war crimes Israel has committed, and charge the IOF of war crimes and crimes against humanity as well as crimes of genocide and aggression against a defenseless people. These crimes are enough ground to bring the Israeli criminal leaders to the ICC.

Let’s Talk About Genocide: The State of Israel Vs. William A. Schabas

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, two weeks ago, Israel’s president, Reuven Rivlin, addressed the United Nations calling “to define red lines beyond which an intervention would be necessary to stop acts of genocide”… Simply put, Rivlin is calling for the restriction of the definition of genocide, so that Israel may be excused… Though there’s ample reason for Rivlin to try and spin “Never Again”, the accusations of genocide are still far and in between. In fact, In my last article in this series, I tried to unravel the realpolitik which leads the United Nations to serial inaction in the case of Palestine. In the last week however, we’ve seen a dramatic shift in events, subtle as they may seem… Last week, to much media fanfare, William Schabas resigned from the commission. The reason apparently being Israel providing the Human Rights Council with “incriminating” information…

Abbas Signs Rome Statute: Hold the Cheers by Stephen Lendman

On September 21, 2010, the UN Human Rights Council accused Israel of failing to distinguish “between civilians and civilian objects and military targets… Both the loss of life and the damage to property were disproportionate to the harm suffered by Israel or any threatened harm. Israel’s actions could not be justified as self-defense… The IDF was responsible for the crime of killing, wounding and terrorizing civilians (as well as) wonton(ly) destr(oying) property and that such destruction could not be justified on grounds of military necessity.” The HRC called IDF crimes so grave, “it was compelled to consider whether (genocide) had been committed.” Israel “committed war crimes, crimes against humanity and, possibly genocide in the course of Operation Cast Lead.”

The Israeli Genocide Coverup by Luis Miranda

By not allowing UN representatives to enter its territory to conduct proper research into the allegations of war crimes and mass murder, Israel condemns itself to being labeled as a genocidal regime. The Government of Israel has denied entry to the country to the investigating committee appointed in August by the Human Rights Council of the UN, which aimed to clarify whether war crimes were committed in Gaza this summer during the Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Human Rights Council establishes Independent, International Commission of Inquiry for the Occupied Palestinian Territory by United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner

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.

Mauritania condemned in the strongest terms the Israeli aggression, which was an affront to human conscience and constituted collective punishment and genocide. Israel’s actions would have negative repercussions on the situation in the entire region. Israel, as the occupying power, was blatantly responsible for the violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in the occupied territories.

… Sudan said with 650 dead, thousands wounded and many thousands more displaced, the violations committed by Israel represented a policy of racial and ethnic cleansing, a massacre and genocide at a time when mankind had rejected the racist law of the jungle and moved into a time of human dignity. The Council must recognize that Israel was an occupying power supported by a superpower that could do whatever it wanted.
