NST Leader: EU double speak on New Straits Times

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.

Let’s be brutally frank. There will be no peace in the Middle East so long as Brussels remains Palestinian blind, deaf and dumb. Didn’t the EU hear the frequent shouts of “Death to the Arabs” on the streets of Israel and Palestine? If the lawyers in Brussels missed the letter of the law, here is our advice, pro bono publico: threat of genocide is itself genocide.

NST Leader: Israel’s barbarism on New Straits Times

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 Friday, barbarism was on full display when the Zionist regime bombarded Gaza without any provocation. On Saturday, The Guardian quoted health authorities in Gaza as saying that 24 Palestinians, adults and children, were killed in the unprovoked attack, including a 5-year-old girl. What is troubling is that Israel is proudly announcing to the world that it has set aside a week to turn the Gaza Strip into a killing field. Today is only day four. The last time the Zionist regime went on a genocidal rampage there was in May last year when it killed 256 Palestinians, 66 of them children. The blitz lasted 11 days.

NST Leader: Of Palestine and peace on New Straits Times

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 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.

Israel’s drums of war on New Straits Times

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.

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.

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.

“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.”

Prospects do not bode well by Askiah Adam

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.

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?

Invincible Israel? on The New Straits Times

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.

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.
