The US can begin by not supplying weapons to Tel Aviv. Israel, being the only nuclear-armed state in the Middle East, is already the most militarised in the region. Besides, the Zionist regime is using American weapons to commit genocide against the Palestinians. The US knows complicity is a crime, but yet it persists. Next, the US must condition its US$3 billion annual aid on Israeli withdrawal from Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.

There is no statute of limitation against crimes in municipal or international law. A special tribunal can always be set up. If the Nuremberg tribunal for the Holocaust was possible, tribunal trials are also possible for allegations of genocide committed by the Israelis against Palestinians.

We call the world not to forget the Sabra and Shatila massacre on the 16th September 1982.

We also call upon the Trump administration to rescind their unjustifiable and unsustainable support for the brutal and genocidal policies of the Israeli regime, and demand Israel account for its actions before the global community of nations.

“Some of you may recall that in November 2013 the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War held a tribunal against the state of Israel for war crimes and crimes of genocide.
Along with other civil society initiatives across the world, we hope that the International Criminal Court will take note of this blatant case of the injustice of the century and institute proceedings against Israel.”

“This peace plan only recognizes Israeli occupation and completely ignores the rights of oppressed Palestinians,” Mahathir said in his opening address to the third Parliamentary Conference for Al-Quds in Petaling Jaya… “Malaysia has always stood with the Palestinians and rejected Trump’s proposal,” He called on the conference to take a stand against the complete oppression of Palestinians. “This activity should be an opportunity to overcome intimidation, violence and genocide against the Palestinian people.”

THERE are two schools of thought as to the fate of the newly revealed proposed settlement to the protracted Palestine problem. One espoused by Scott Ritter, former United Nations weapons of mass destruction inspector, that Palestinians cannot refuse and the other that it must be rejected, not least because of its total disregard of justice for the Palestinians and their dignity… If, as Ritter suggests, this is the chance of a lifetime for the reinstatement of Palestine and its economic development, how can the Palestinians refuse this deal when a refusal means the perpetuation of poverty and their ultimate genocide?

It has taken five years for the ICC to act on the Palestinian request. But Israel’s genocide against the Palestinians is much older. It is older than the forced, violent birth of Israel in 1948.
Writing an op-ed for Al Jazeera on Dec 29, 2016, lawyer and human rights activist Stanley L. Cohen put it thus: “Make no mistake of it, the sum total of Israel’s efforts these past 68 years is nothing short of the deliberate infliction upon Palestinians, as a cognisable group, conditions of life and death calculated to bring about their physical destruction in whole or in part.” And then this warning: “In the presence of overwhelming evidence of premeditated Israeli genocide, to argue otherwise is to reduce the dark, evil and systematic deeds of Stalin, Kissinger, Pol Pot and the Hutu state to little more than a collection of misunderstood happenstance.” We could not have put it better.
Another irony needs mentioning. When Britain, with the generous help of the United States, manufactured the birth of Israel in 1948, the United Nations passed a General Assembly resolution enacting a legal definition of “genocide”.
Little wonder Cohen labels Israel as “a state built from the marrow of genocide”. The road to The Hague is going to be a long and thorny one for the Palestinians. And for Bensouda, too.

This dedication to a world without war was reaffirmed through the establishment of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War and, significantly, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal – a tribunal of conscience with its own rules of evidence and procedures consistent with the highest standards comparable to the International Court of Justice and other national courts of law.
Two former UN assistant secretary-generals served in the supporting Commission: Hans Sponeck and Dennis Halliday. Three separate trials were conducted from 2011 to 2013.
The first, against then US president George Bush and UK prime minister Tony Blair for carrying out an illegal war against Iraq. The second against George Bush, Henry Rumsfeld, Richard Cheney and their lawyers for the international crime of torture. The third trial, against General Yarron and the State of Israel for genocide.
