Understanding Genocide: The Case of Gaza on Palestinian Centre for Human Rights – PCHR

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.

“Through this liberal language of international humanitarian law, basically, Israel is searching for impunity. That’s how they immediately defended themselves from the beginning, at the ICJ… This mobilization of international humanitarian law at the service of genocide has also another function. It has- and it will have- the function of telling future generations- or trying to tell future generations- how to narrate the genocide. Israel is constantly trying, like all colonial powers, to write history while erasing the colonized. And so, that’s the function of this mobilization of international humanitarian law. To present and to shape the meaning of violence as legitimate violence, so that in the future- in the next decades- people will remember this genocide, not as a genocide but as something else. As a counter-insurgency campaign which had some excesses but, overall, abided by international humanitarian law.”
