China hawks suffer a setback by Gus Carter

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 House of Commons was due to vote on the so-called ‘genocide amendment’ to the Trade Bill later today. The proposal gives British courts the right to decide if a country is committing genocide and was on course to trigger a major Tory rebellion — with China hawks ready to take a stand. However, that plan has been made much harder. The government intervened last night in a bid to avoid a possible defeat. 

…the government is opposed to the so-called genocide amendment, arguing that trade decisions are for politicians rather than judges. Ministers are worried that it could be used to prevent trade with lots of countries — for example, activists could attempt to undermine any future relationship with Israel by bringing a genocide case over alleged poor treatment of Palestinians.

Tampa students arrested for protesting on campus on FightBack! News

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.

“USF and the police demonstrated another act against the voices of students,” stated Laith Hader of the USF chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). “I was there to give a speech about USF’s record of suppressing voices of pro-Palestine activists. Many of those who speak out against the Israeli system of apartheid and genocide are being doxed, fired from their jobs, investigated or interrogated by the state, and are falsely framed as anti-Semitic, all while neo-Nazis and white supremacists are given their ‘free speech’ without any repercussions from the state or its institutions.”

Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs welcomes ICC ruling on jurisdiction in Palestinian territories on The Jordan Times

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 Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs on Tuesday welcomed the International Criminal Court (ICC) ruling stating the court has legal jurisdiction over the occupied Palestinian territories, which underlines the legitimacy of international resolutions.
… Based on legal and ethical principles and efforts to achieve global security and peace in accordance with the Rome Statute, the ICC had issued a decision stipulating its jurisdiction over the Palestinian territories occupied in 1967, which it defined as the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, the committee’s secretary general, Abdullah Kanaan, told the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
… The ICC ruling could lead to the arrest and criminal investigations of Israel’s political and military leaders accused of war crimes and genocide against unarmed Palestinian civilians, he noted.

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.
