Israelis must pay for their war crimes By Tariq A. Al Maeena

In its short history, ICC has chased down events in relation to crimes of aggression primarily in some countries in Africa. However, despite repeated calls, it continues to ignore calls for investigations into crimes committed by the Israelis against Palestinians. It has remained mysteriously silent on the massacres of the residents of Sabra and Shatilla and the butchery of civilians in Jenin, crafted by Ariel Sharon, the then Israeli prime minister, followed by a public display of pre-designed genocide of women and children of Gaza at the behest of the current Israeli premier, Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Is there is a ceiling for the number of Palestinian deaths below which Israeli crimes are not a genocide?”

7 November, 2014

Dear Madame, Sir

Israel calls it MOWING THE GRASS. Sounds like an ecological act.
It is not.
For how much longer will Israel continue its war crimes with Impunity?
For how much longer will Israel hide behind US skirt?
Is there is a ceiling for the number of Palestinian deaths below which Israeli crimes are not a genocide?

The UN has issued good sounding declarations signaling it’s disapproval, and?

The world is watching and realizing that there is double standard system when it comes to punishing pariah states. Such can only lead to the conclusion that the UN is complicit to Israeli war crimes.

Save your reputation and carry out an investigation of Israeli IDF savagery that can only be described as a Genocide.

Collective Punishment: Official Israeli Policy by Stephen Lendman

Israel gives rogue state lawlessness new meaning. Rule of law principles don’t matter. Repeated breaches occur. Unaccountably because Western leaders support its worst crimes. International law is clear and unequivocal… Throughout over 47 years of militarized occupation harshness, Israel willfully, maliciously and consistently spurned virtually all humanitarian and human rights laws. With impunity. Getting away with mass murder and then some. Genocide by any standard.

A Most Important Book for All Who Study National Liberations: Unfree in Palestine by Denis Rancourt

The new book by academics Nadia Abu-Zahra and Adah Kay — Unfree in Palestine: Registration, Documentation and Movement Restrictions(PlutoPress, 2013) — is a brilliant achievement, and a landmark in the study of both the ongoing Israel genocide in Palestine,1 and national liberation struggles in general.

Palestine, Israel and the ADL by Robert Fantina

The many crimes that Israel commits on a daily basis may once have been hidden behind a wall of secrecy. But that was before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media enabled everyone with a cell phone and an internet connection to broadcast facts to the world. People around the globe see the horrors that Israel perpetrates, and understand it as all the things the ADL denies: apartheid, ethnic cleansing, genocide, and a number of other war crimes.

“According to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide 1948, Israel has been committing crimes of genocide against the Palestinian people beginning with the Nakba up to the present day.”

To the U.N. Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide,

According to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide 1948, Israel has been committing crimes of genocide against the Palestinian people with malice aforethought beginning with the Nakba up to the present day. Not a day goes past where Israel doesn’t add to its existing crimes of genocide.

Through its UN vetoes and supply of arms to Israel for use against a captive, occupied population and for weapons testing purposes, the US is complicit with Israel’s crimes of genocide. Please act now, and shore up confidence in the UN and international law, which should protect the powerless against the powerful – conduct an inquiry, investigate Israel’s crimes and bring its, and its accomplice’s criminals to justice.

“If this is not genocide, what is?”

22 October, 2014

Dear Madam/Sir,

Events of this summer leave no one in doubt. Israel is engaged in a ruthless nearly seven decades long war against the very notion of the Palestinian people, a war that now pits a nuclear power against a captive population in which refugee camps, hospitals, UN shelters and power stations are the main targets of F-16, white phosphorous and drone attacks. Add to this incomprehensible slaughter of innocents the seven year inhumane siege of Gaza – which now has no clean water or viable power source – and Israel’s militaristic, legal and bureaucratic stranglehold over the West Bank – including house demolitions, administrative detention, child arrest and torture, the deaths of birthing mothers at checkpoints and the routine murders of peaceful protesters – and the picture is brutally clear. If this is not genocide, what is?

Israel’s aim is clear: to take and control all of the land that rightfully belongs to the Palestinians. Israel has never been punished for its flagrant abuses of human rights and violations of international law. This desperate, tragic situation has to stop. Now. The world can wash and wring its hands no more. Truth and reconciliation may yet be possible, but only once the perpetrator is disarmed and shamed into change. Only international pressure, truth and justice can effect that transition. One million people marched this summer against the third massacre of Palestinians in six years. But popular resistance is not enough. If international law is to count for anything it must address this grotesque injustice, this massive trauma, this stain on the conscience of the world. I demand a genuine enquiry from your office into the question of Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people.

Yours truly,

“Please add my name to the growing list of people demanding a public inquiry into the possibility that Israel is guilty of committing crimes of genocide against the Palestinian people”

21 October, 2014

Mr Dieng and Ms Walsh

I was disturbed to read Tali Shapiro’s capable and thorough analysis of the failures of your office to discharge its responsibilities in relation to the prevention of genocide and related violations of international law and applicable human rights conventions, particularly in relation to recent events in Gaza. Ms Shapiro’s analysis is available here:

http://pulsemedia.org/2014/09/07/lets-talk-about-genocide-the-un-special-adviser-on-the-prevention-of-genocide-standard-and-israel/

Ms Shapiro demonstrates carefully and at length the profound inadequacy – if not, indeed, complicity – of the statement from your office of 24 July 2014, which goes to exceptional lengths to maintain a familiar, unconvincing and immoral “balance” among parties involved in or affected by the ongoing illegal Israeli occupation and blockade, and the ongoing oppression and persecution of, and discrimination against, Palestinians.

Please add my name to the growing list of people demanding a consistent and morally defensible stance from your office, and an official, urgent, public inquiry into the possibility that Israel is guilty of committing crimes of genocide against the Palestinian people. You owe this to us and to the troubled world that finds no peace while there is no peace in Palestine. It is the key.

Ashrawi warns Israel destroying Christian presence in the Holy Land at Middle East Christian confab

“But what is even more destructive is the deliberate Israeli policy of ethnic cleansing in Area C and in Jerusalem. Israelis get very upset when we use terms like Ethnic Cleansing or like Genocide or like War Crimes or Massacres,” Ashrawi said. “And I tell Israelis if the word disturbs you, you should see the actions. If you don’t like the word, then don’t do it. If you don’t like being described as the country that uses war crimes and ethnic cleansing than stop using ware crimes and ethnic cleansing and we won’t use the language. It is the action itself that is the significant part.”
