Human Rights Council establishes Independent, International Commission of Inquiry for the Occupied Palestinian Territory by United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner

Mauritania condemned in the strongest terms the Israeli aggression, which was an affront to human conscience and constituted collective punishment and genocide. Israel’s actions would have negative repercussions on the situation in the entire region. Israel, as the occupying power, was blatantly responsible for the violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in the occupied territories.

… Sudan said with 650 dead, thousands wounded and many thousands more displaced, the violations committed by Israel represented a policy of racial and ethnic cleansing, a massacre and genocide at a time when mankind had rejected the racist law of the jungle and moved into a time of human dignity. The Council must recognize that Israel was an occupying power supported by a superpower that could do whatever it wanted.

Jews for Palestinian Right of Return: Jews Say: End the War on Gaza — No Aid to Apartheid Israel! BDS! (With 200 initial signers)

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.

For Israel’s relentless war on Gaza is no more an act of “self-defense” than such infamous massacres as Wounded Knee (1890), Guernica (1937), the Warsaw Ghetto (1942), Deir Yassin (1948), My Lai (1968), Soweto (1976), Sabra and Shatila (1982), or Lebanon (2006).

Rather, it is but the latest chapter in more than a century of Zionist colonialism, dispossession, ethnic cleaning, racism, and genocide — including Israel’s very establishment through the uprooting and displacement of over 750,000 Palestinians during the 1947-1948 Nakba.

South American Women’s Solidarity and Struggle with the Palestinian People!

The group of women CLOC-Via Campesina South America consists of delegates from organizations in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, gathered from 12 to 16 July in the city of Quito, denouncing the Israeli state and its US ally, who in recent weeks have heightened militarism and expansionism in its imperial attempt to extinguish the liberation of Palestine, which is nothing but a genocide against a people.

Rural women demand respect for the principle of sovereignty and the right of farmers and Palestinian farmers, live, produce and stay on their land and territory. In that sense, echoing the international community express our solidarity against the genocidal invasion and colonial practices exercised by the Zionist state of Israel, which has proven to be a systematic violator of human rights and the resolutions of Nations United regarding Palestine.

Palestine is now a symbol of courage, wisdom and strength in their struggle for land, so we call to mobilize in embassies and lobbying with States to speak out for Palestine, for the life of men, mainly women and children who are being killed daily by Zionism.

To live in a world with less desilgualdad and peace, it is necessary to denounce the abuses suffered by the people of the world and even more so, genocide which is subjected to the Palestinian people. The, popular world social movements have to raise their voice of protest against the slaughter perpetrated in Palestine, seeing that Western governments are mostly silent accomplices in this action.

NO. Israel has NO Right of Self-Defense against Palestine by Occupied Palestine

Palestine does not need to defend itself against allegations of terrorism for resisting.
Every people under occupation have the inalienable right of self-defense against an oppressor, especially when this one commits a genocide. There is not a single law Israel can use which would precede this right of Palestine. Throughout history every nation which resisted war or genocide was and is: proud of it’s resistance. And so is Palestine.

Incremental Genocide: An Interview with Ilan Pappe by Malihe Razazan

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 Israelis were happy with the PA controlling the Gaza strip. So this was a kind of an open prison, if you want. But still a prison. But in 2005, the inmates- if one can call it this way, using the same metaphors of the prison- had enough, and rebelled against this strangulation and ghettoisation by starting a resistance movement. And the Israelis turned the open air prison into a maximum security prison, which they bombed from the outside, whenever they feel like, or whenever the rebellion is too much for them. And because the can’t divide the Gaza strip into areas A, B, and C, as they do in the West Bank, they can’t hope that the Palestinians would move to Egypt as they hoped that they would move from the West Bank to Jordan. And they know, I’m sure they know, they are fully conscience that if they don’t allow these people to be united with the rest of Palestine, if they do not check out, expel all these people, they leave them at their mercy in this huge prison which is called “the Gaza Strip”. And once this prison rebels, they are the strongest army in the area, if not in the world, they use the weapons that were made- originally- for fighting brigades of tanks and hundreds of thousands of soldiers. They use it on an urban space [equivalent to] a small city in America. So this is how it becomes genocidal.
