Palestinian and international efforts continue to institute legal proceedings for the prosecution of Israeli officials in the commission of war crimes.

International attorneys have filed war crime charges against 15 Israeli political and military officials including Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni and Ehud Barak.

Palestinian and international efforts continue to institute legal proceedings for the prosecution of Israeli officials in the commission of war crimes.

Although Israeli forces are involved in thousands of cases, local experts such as the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights believe that the recent major attacks on the Gaza Strip will be successfully prosecuted.

“They were well-documented, televised and the world was paying attention,“ a member of the Gaza City team commented.

After the very public detection of large-scale atrocities which included the use of white phosphorus bombs in enclosed civilian areas and the liquidation of children there is little defense, PNN reported.

Fifteen specific names are now pending for prosecution in The Hague’s war crimes tribunal.

Those listed for prosecution include Israeli political and military officials, namely Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni and Ehud Barak.

Israelis are being warned internally against leaving its boundaries due to fears of arrest.

French lawyer Gilles Dovers is handling the complaint in Paris calling for the “open investigation into war crimes“ committed by Israeli forces during three weeks in Gaza.

UN investigator Richard Falk says evidence shows Israelis committed war crimes in Gaza

UN investigator Richard Falk says evidence shows Israelis committed war crimes in Gaza

Ma’an news

Jan 23, 2009

There is evidence that Israel committed war crimes during its three-week onslaught in the Gaza Strip, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, Richard Falk said on Thursday.

Falk said that the psychological trauma of the civilian population that endured the Israeli assault means that all of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents could be considered casualties. Israelis who are “treated for shock” following Palestinian attacks are counted as injured.

Falk, speaking to Reuters on the phone from his home in California, said called for an independent investigation into whether Israel’s actions amounted to war crimes.

“I believe that there is the prima facie case for reaching that conclusion,” he told a Geneva news conference.

Falk said Israel had made no effort to allow civilians to escape the fighting.

“To lock people into a war zone is something that evokes the worst kind of international memories of the Warsaw Ghetto, and sieges that occur unintentionally during a period of wartime,” Falk, who is Jewish, said, referring to the starvation and murder of Warsaw’s Jews by Nazi Germany in World War Two.

“There could have been temporary provision at least made for children, disabled, sick civilians to leave, even if where they left to was southern Israel,” the Princeton University professor said.

Israel must be judged at the International Criminal Court – Universal petition

gal_5801.jpg

Jan 24, 2009

Approximately 300 among NGOs and associations ask the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to open an investigation on the war crimes committed by Israel in Gaza. Our support is indispensable. Sign and circulate this urgent «universal petition».

To the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC)

Law is the distinguishing mark of human civilisation. All progress made by humanity coincides with the consolidation of rights. The challenge that Israel’s aggression against Gaza poses to us consists in affirming, when confronted with such great suffering, that the response to violence is justice.

War crimes? Only courts are able to bring about a sentence, but all of us can bear witness, because a human being only exists in his relationship with others. The circumstances show the breadth of their dimension in Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1949, «All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.»

Israeli Soldiers Play ‘Sophie’s Choice’ With Palestinian Mothers

Israeli Soldiers Play ‘Sophie’s Choice’ With Palestinian Mothers

umkahlil

Jan 24, 2009

The sickening horrors to which the Zionists have subjected the Palestinians for more than sixty years defy credulity. I received this message from Barbara Lubin, founder of Middle East Children’s Alliance today:

I entered the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night with my friend and fellow activist Sharon Wallace after waiting ten hours at the Egypt/Gaza. The destruction and trauma is even greater than I expected. In just two short days I met with families who were given minutes to evacuate their homes and are now living in overcrowded UN schools; I saw the ruins of bombed greenhouses; I looked out the window at fields and roads torn up by the tread of Israeli tanks; and I visited two universities where MECA supports students with scholarships-severely damaged by Israeli bombs.

Out of all the devastation I have seen so far, there is one story in particular that I think the world needs to hear. I met a mother who was at home with her ten children when Israeli soldiers entered the house. The soldiers told her she had to choose five of her children to “give as a gift to Israel.” As she screamed in horror they repeated the demand and told her she could choose or they would choose for her. Then these soldiers murdered five of her children in front of her. The concept of “Jewish morality” is truly dead. We can be fascists, terrorists, and Nazis just like everybody else.

Israeli commanders in crosshairs for war crimes

Israeli commanders in crosshairs for war crimes

Sat, 24 Jan 2009 15:43:49 GMT

Israel has taken measures to protect the identity of Gaza war commanders as the case for war crimes in the populated area gains momentum.

Israeli authorities have issued an order banning the publication of the full name and photographs of the field commanders of the Gaza war, the Haaretz reported.

The measure has been taken amid concerns that international bodies and rights groups are planning to take legal actions against the high-ranking Israeli commanders who have been involved in the alleged war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

Israel is accused of using controversial weapons against the civilian population of Gaza during its 23-day war against the Hamas government. Rights groups and international bodies say the Israeli acts violated international laws, constituting war crimes.

The Israeli Defense Ministry fears that interviews with army officers describing the destruction of civilian homes and other internationally unlawful acts could incriminate the military commanders.

The ban applies to the full name and photographs of officers from the rank of battalion commander down. The order also prohibits tying particular battlefield commanders to the destruction of particular areas in the coastal sliver.

According to the report, the decision had been made following the publication of reports that a lawsuit had been filed with a Dutch court against one of the Israeli brigade commanders after his identity was revealed by the media.

Tel Aviv launched Operation Cast Lead on December 27 to put an end to rocket attacks against southern Israeli towns. At least 1,330 Palestinians died during the offensive, while some 5,450 others were reported wounded.

The huge number of civilian casualties in the densely-populated coastal sliver has provoked widespread outcries around the globe among many nations as well as their leaders.

How Can Israel Claim to Be a “Democracy” When It Has No Constitution Nor Borders?

How Can Israel Claim to Be a “Democracy” When It Has No Constitution Nor Borders?

By: Jewish Racism on: 24.01.2009 [18:18 ]

The Jewish State of Israel has no constitution, nor does it name its borders. Israel’s hidden constitution is Judaism. Israel’s undeclared borders range from the Nile to the Euphrates rivers. Israel’s desired jurisdiction extends over the entire Earth.

It could not be more clear that the Jewish State follows a foreign policy which obeys Jewish Law as iterated in the Hebrew Bible, the Talmud, Maimonedes, the Cabalah, and the many commentaries and refinements of same. The Jews are genociding the native inhabitants of Palestine, just as their religion advises, and because their religion teaches them to do so. They treat non-Jews as if non-humans, just as their religion requires them to do. They make perpetual war on every nation on Earth, just as their genocidal Jewish God has instructed.

The Jews of Israel are simply being Jews. Jews are an existential threat to the human race.

By Zaid Nabulsi

I lost my gloves one day in a coffee shop in Geneva, and I tell you, it’s difficult to ride without them when it’s really cold. So as I was paying for a new pair with a credit card, the salesman, whom I knew was from Israel, tried to start some small talk by asking me what my family name means. I told him that it relates to the city of Nablus where my family is originally from.

Suddenly, the most bewildered look was plastered on his face. “Where is Nablus?” he asked, “I’ve never heard of it.” Then, after realizing that I knew he was bullshitting me, he pretended to remember, “Ah, Shkheim you mean?”With my insistence not to learn these ugly names that the deranged Zionists have dug up from oblivion to erase our identity, that name certainly didn’t ring a bell. But now it was my turn. Although I knew where he was from, I asked “And you’re… from?” As he smiled while reminding me, I replicated the same look on his face moments ago. “Israel? Where is that?” Then after a brief pause, “Ah, the land of Canaan you mean. Palestine”.

12 Rahasia Kejahatan Yahudi dalam Kitab Suci

12 Rahasia Kejahatan Yahudi dalam Kitab Suci

Ditulis Oleh Henri Shalahuddin

Ide mendirikan negara Yahudi dalam perkembangan gerakan Zionis, sebenarnya banyak dipengaruhi oleh Theodore Herzl. Dalam tulisannya, Der Jadenstaat (Negara Yahudi), dia mendorong organisasi Yahudi dunia untuk meminta persetujuan Turki Usmani sebagai penguasa di Palestina agar diizinkan membeli tanah di sana. Kaum Yahudi hanya diizinkan memasuki Palestina untuk melaksanakan ibadah, bukan sebagai komunitas yang punya ambisi politik (lihat: Palestine and The Arab-Israeli Conflict, 2000: 95). Keputusan ini memicu gerakan Zionis radikal. Bersamaan dengan semakin melemahnya pengaruh Turki Usmani, para imigran Zionis berdatangan setelah berhasil membeli tanah di Palestina utara. Imigrasi besar-besaran ini pun berubah menjadi penjajahan tatkala mereka berhasil menguasai ekonomi, sosial dan politik di Palestina dengan dukungan Inggris (Israel, Land of Tradition and Conflict, 1993:27).

Berakhirnya Perang Dunia I, Inggris berhasil menguasai Palestina dengan mudah. Sherif Husein di Mekah yang dilobi untuk memberontak kekuasaan Turki juga meraih kesuksesan. (1948 and After: Israel and Palestine, 1990:149). Rakyat Palestina semakin terdesak dan menjadi sasaran pembantaian. (2000:173). Agresi Zionis terus berlanjut, 360 desa dan 14 kota yang didiami rakyat Palestina dihancurkan dan lebih 726.000 jiwa terpaksa mengungsi. Akhirnya pada Jumat, 14 Mei 1948, negara baru Israel dideklarasikan oleh Ben Gurion, bertepatan dengan 8 jam sebelum Inggris dijadwal meninggalkan Palestina. Untuk strategi mempertahankan keamanannya di masa berikutnya, Israel terus menempel AS hingga berhasil mendapat pinjaman 100 juta U$D untuk mengembangkan senjata nuklir.

Elisabeth Diana Dewi dalam karya ilmiahnya, The Creation of The State of Israel menguraikan bahwa secara filosofi, negara Israel dibentuk berdasarkan tiga keyakinan yang tidak boleh dipertanyakan: (a) tanah Israel hanya diberikan untuk bangsa pilihan Tuhan sebagai bagian dari Janji-Nya kepada mereka. (b) pembentukan negara Israel modern adalah proses terbesar dari penyelamatan tanah bangsa Yahudi. (c) pembentukan negara bagi mereka adalah solusi atas sejarah penderitaan Yahudi yang berjuang dalam kondisi tercerai berai (diaspora). Maka, merebut kembali seluruh tanah yang dijanjikan dalam Bibel adalah setara dengan penderitaan mereka selama 3000 tahun. Oleh sebab itu, semua bangsa non-Yahudi yang hidup di tanah itu adalah perampas dan layak untuk dibinasakan.

With friends like these : Khaled Amayreh was Arrested by West Bank PA

By Sherine Bahaa


KHALED AMAYREH, the Al-Ahram Weekly correspondent in the West Bank was arrested Sunday evening by the Preventive Security Forces (PSF) in Hebron. He was released after two days. Amayreh, 52, lives in Dura, 12 miles southwest of Hebron and has worked as the Weekly correspondent since 1997, as well as for a number of other media outlets.

He has a BA in journalism from the University of Oklahoma and an MA in journalism from the University of Southern Illinois. For a long time, he suffered, as do all Palestinians in the occupied territories, being confined by the occupation to his home village.

Not long ago, he was prohibited by Israeli forces from leaving Hebron at an Israeli checkpoint, detained and released only after being threatened for his courageous articles documenting Israeli crimes in the Weekly.

Surprisingly though, this time, Amayreh was not arrested by the Israelis, he was detained by the PSF; the PA police apparatus. This was the fourth time that Amayreh was arrested by the PSF. But this time why was he arrested? He was not in a demonstration, nor was he smuggling weapons to his fellow Palestinians being killed by Israelis on a daily basis.

His crime was explaining, during an interview with the Beirut based Al-Quds satellite TV, why there are only a few demonstrations in the West Bank in support of the people of Gaza. Amayreh frankly said that the PA did not allow such demonstrations. Amayreh did not mean to undermine the PA but he said, “the PA has certain commitments towards Israel and they (PA) do not want things to get out of their hands.” Amayreh also said the Israelis do not respect the PA and view the PA as a kind of “servant” to Israeli interests.

PA slams Israel for failing to topple Hamas

PA slams Israel for failing to topple Hamas

Fri, 23 Jan 2009 10:02:52 GMT

Abbas (L) along with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert

A senior PA official has criticized Israel for ending a 22-day long offensive against the Gaza Strip with Hamas still in power in the region.

“It was a big mistake to end the war this way,” The Jerusalem Post quoted an unnamed Palestinian Authority official as saying. “The fact that Hamas is still in power is bad for all,” he said.

The remarks were made shortly after, Yasser Abed Rabbo, a close aid to acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas threatened to stop Hamas from founding an ’emirate of darkness’ in the Gaza Strip.

“We will not allow the creation of a separatist entity, no matter what the price,” he added in a press conference earlier Thursday.

He claimed that ‘the plot aiming to separate Gaza from the West Bank will not pass’.

PA officials have accused Hamas of killing dozens of Fatah men, which form the majority of the Authority, in the Gaza Strip over the past few weeks.

This is while Hamas officials say Fatah has intensified its crackdown against Hamas members in the West Bank, arresting more than 30 Hamas supporters and figures in the past few days.

According to the sources, the rival Fatah forces arrested at least 25 Hamas supporters in the West Bank as soon as they were released from Israeli prisons.

Huge demonstration in Hebron in solidarity with Gaza

Another massive demonstration occurred in the Abu Sneineh neighborhood of Hebron on Friday. This marked the third consecutive imgp2849weekly demonstration protesting the Israeli occupation and the atrocities in Gaza. The crowd numbered around 2500 people, somewhat smaller than the two previous weeks when the Israeli attack on Gaza was in progress.

The demonstration began after the Friday prayers at the Wasaya mosque in the Abu Sneineh neighborhood. Israeli police and soldiers had erected roadblocks around the area prior to the demonstration in an attempt to limit access to the protestors.

Seven Palestinians were arrested including two directly charged with stone throwing. Israeli soldiers entered several Palestinian residences and took up positions on rooftops to shoot at the demonstrators.

There were 20 injuries reported requiring medical intervention including 15 people suffering from tear gas inhalation, 4 people shot with rubber coated steel bullets, and one man seriously injured by a dum dum (exploding) live bullet. This man was shot in the upper leg, fragmenting the bone in several places and destroying all of the muscle tissue in the area of the wound. He was transferred from the local hospital to Al-Mizaan Hospital in Hebron.

The Islamic militant group Hamas is trying to re-establish control of the Gaza Strip after a devastating three-week war with Israel. Meanwhile, Israel is concerned about allegations of war crimes, saying it will offer legal protection to soldiers.

The Hamas government has reopened for business in Gaza, though most of its offices were bombed by Israel. So officials set up tables in the rubble or worked from their cars.

Hamas plans to distribute $52 million in aid to Palestinians who lost family members or whose homes were damaged in the war. But that is a fraction of what is needed to rebuild Gaza.

“The reconstruction and redevelopment of Gaza is something that will take years and years and billions and billions of dollars,” Holmes said.

John Holmes is the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.

The U.S. occupation forces have committed horrific massacre that killed five brothers were they shot dead, including two children, one 8-year-old and 14 years. All five bodies have become distorted and not clearly defined because of the large releases of gun bullets.This crime had taken place after the five brothers, Omar, Mahmood, Mohamed, Khalid and Ahmed, were taken to the roof of their house and been executed there.. It’s believed that all the innocent five brothers were civilians and had no links to any political or resistance group. They were working in a very simple working class of different civilians working sectors like construction workers “builders” and vegetable sellers, to feed their family.

Apparently the occupation criminal group in charge of this crime, was operating and adopted this criminal policy and follow this method for quite long time ago. They have totally different portable weapons, tools and Stryker Armed vehicles of that the American ordinary army use. The evidence refers to that an Iraqi army forces were participated in the execution of the five innocent Iraqis brothers.

U.S. military raid kills Iraqi man, woman in their bed

January 24, 2009 2:16 PM

(HAS TRIM) -McClatchy Newspapers – (MCT)

BAGHDAD – An Iraqi couple was killed in their bed Saturday morning as their daughter slept between them when U.S. forces raided their home.

The U.S. military said that the raid, in the area of Hawija, just west of Kirkuk, was an Iraqi government-approved operation against a wanted man and that the killings were in self-defense. But the family described the slayings of a modest farmer and his wife and the wounding of their daughter by U.S. forces as the three slept.

According to a U.S. military statement, at 2 a.m. U.S. and Iraqi soldiers entered the bedroom where the couple lay and the woman reached under the mattress. The soldiers told her multiple times to show her hands; when she didn’t, they shot her, the statement said.

The woman’s husband, Dhia Hussein Ali, jumped up and ”physically attacked” the soldiers after his wife was shot, the statement said. The soldiers killed him in self-defense, the statement said. The couple’s 9-year-old daughter, Alham, was injured during the attack.
