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 Federal Prosecutor’s Office (BA) confirmed that it had received a criminal complaint against the Israeli president, who was at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos on Thursday to discuss the Gaza war.
  • “The criminal complaints will now be examined in accordance with the usual procedure,” BA said in a statement, adding that it was in contact with the foreign ministry “to examine the question of the immunity of the person concerned”.
  • It did not say what the specific complaints were, or who had filed them but a statement allegedly issued by the people behind the complaint, entitled “Legal Action Against Crimes Against Humanity” and obtained by AFP, said several unnamed individuals had filed charges with federal prosecutors and with cantonal authorities in Basel, Bern and Zurich.
  • The statement said the plaintiffs were seeking a criminal prosecution in parallel to a case brought before the UN’s International Court of Justice by South Africa, which accuses Israel of genocide in its offensive in Gaza.
  • Addressing the issue of immunity, the statement suggested that it could be lifted “in certain circumstances”, including in cases of alleged crimes against humanity, adding that “these conditions are met in this case”.

Israeli President Herzog to Address Joint Session of Congress by Richard Silverstein

Israeli President Isaac Herzog will address a Joint Session of Congress on July 19th… At least four members of Congress have announced a boycott of Herzog’s speech: Reps. Cori Bush, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Jamaal Bowman.  Rashida Tlaib has not joined them (yet). If she does attend, I’m virtually certain she will stage an act of protest during the event.

…I want to declare as forcefully as I can that as a Jew, I support [their] decision.. .There is no reason to give any Israeli a hero’s welcome.  Israel is a nation that has gone off the rails. Not only is it on the verge of becoming a fascist state, rejecting the rule of law and destroying the power of the judicial branch, it is also engaged in what can only be called genocide against Palestinians.  Mass violence by both the IDF and settlers acting on behalf of the state, along with numerous other phenomena, justify using this controversial term.  This must not be rewarded. Instead, the US should announce a boycott of all Israeli leaders; even prohibit them from entering the US.  Or at least the worst of the lot (which is most of the cabinet) should face such prohibition.
