The history of genocides can be summarized in terms of four salient fea- tures. First, genocide shows remarkable invariance throughout the political history of humankind. In the twentieth century alone, episodes of genocide have occurred in then-German southwestern Africa (Namibia), the Ottoman Empire, the Soviet Union, Germany, Maoist China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Burundi, Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, East Timor, Bosnia, Guatemala, Uganda, Iraq, Rwanda, Sudan-Darfur, and Palestine.

In Palestine, several cases have been made against companies facilitating Israeli occupation (Baars 2006; Skinner 2008, 321; War on Want 2006). The companies in question have made extensive efforts to neutralize the implicit accusations of political genocide (politicide) in these cases (Moffatt 2009; War on Want 2006, 3; Baars 2006, 128).

Human Rights Council discusses human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied arab territories discussion at the United Nations Human Rights Council

International-Lawyers.org said that the most fundamental human rights were being violated, and there was an extraordinary number of summary executions, as well as mass arbitrary imprisonment, including denial of food and water.  The repetition of those actions over a long period of time was evidence of the intention to commit the crime of genocide.  The Human Rights Council and Special Procedures were urged to investigate Israeli authorities to determine if those actions constituted the crime of genocide.

Call to May Day 2016: Palestine Contingent by Within Our Lifetime

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.

Indeed, this May also marks 68 years of living under occupation, ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and genocide for the Palestinian people. Israel sustains itself and its crimes through the aid of global imperialist powers that also oppress working class peoples in their own countries, the most notable of these countries being the United States, the world’s only superpower and leading imperialist power.

This May Day, we denounce Israel, we denounce the United States, and we denounce global capitalism and its highest form, imperialism. We salute the workers, the resistors, and the oppressed everywhere.

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.

Much of what we saw in Palestine called up images of life in the United States. Like Israel, the United States is a settler colony—built on the genocide and denial of Indigenous peoples’ rights;

Breaking the Silence // The Poem That Exposed Israeli War Crimes in 1948 by Yair Auron

One of the most powerful condemnations of the events at Lod and Dawamiya came from the agriculture minister, Aharon Zisling. The language used on November 17 by the kibbutz member and representative of the left-wing Mapam party, is among the most damning ever heard in an Israeli cabinet meeting. Zisling told those present that after he received information about the events, he had not been able to sleep all night.

“I felt that the things that were going on were wounding my soul, the soul of my family and all of us here, he said. I could not imagine where we came from and where we were going. Noting that he had sometimes disagreed when British occupiers in Palestine were called Nazis – even though, he averred, the British did commit Nazi crimes – Zisling added: But now Jews too have behaved like Nazis and my entire being has been shaken. We have to conceal these actions from the public, and I agree that we should not even reveal that we are investigating them, but they must be investigated.”

‘Barbarism by an educated and cultured people’ — Dawayima massacre was worse than Deir Yassin by Jonathan Ofir

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 soldier tells that the commanders who are cultured and polite, considered good guys in society, have become vile murderers, and this occurs not in the storm of battle and heated response, but rather from a system of expulsion and destruction. The fewer Arabs remain – the better. This principle is the main political motive of [the] expulsions and acts of horror which no-one objects to, not in the field command nor amongst the highest military command… I myself accuse first of all the government, which doesn’t seem to have any interest to fight the phenomena and perhaps even encourages them indirectly. The fact of not-acting is in itself encouragement. My commander told me that there is an unwritten order to not take prisoners of war, and the interpretation of “prisoner” is individually given by each soldier and commander. A prisoner can be an Arab man, woman or child.

Apartheid Israel: The Politics of an Analogy edited by Sean Jacobs, Jon Soske, forward by Achille Mbembe

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 occupation of Palestine is the biggest moral scandal of our times, one of the most dehumanizing ordeals of the century we have just entered, and the biggest act of cowardice of the last half-century.
And since all they [Israel] are willing to offer is a fight to the finish, since what they are willing to do is to go all the way – carnage, destruction, incremental extermination – the time has come for global isolation.

Video: Temple movement rabbi proselytizes for genocide by David Sheen

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.

On 9 September, a group calling itself the “Nascent Sanhedrin” (a reconstituted council of Jewish sages) held court in Jerusalem and accused the pontiff and other world leaders of crimes against the Jewish people.
Speaking to a crowd of about 40 men and a handful of women at the Diaspora Yeshiva seminary in the Old City of Jerusalem, the leaders of the Sanhedrin gave a series of speeches excoriating Pope Francis, US President Barack Obama, the European Union, the United Nations and other international bodies for not supporting Israel’s claims to “exclusive patrimony” over all of historic Palestine.
For three hours, the rabbis oscillated between accusing world leaders of plotting genocide against the Jewish people, and themselves calling for Jews to commit genocide against Muslims, Christians and other non-Jews.
