International lawyers call for the prosecution of Israeli war crime suspects

MEMO | Monday, 01 October 2012 13:30

The Gaza Declaration condemned Israel’s acts of aggression against the Palestinian people.

The International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL) ended its bureau meeting in the Gaza Strip yesterday, 30 September, with a declaration affirming that Israeli actions in the Gaza Strip constitute a form of collective punishment and “a precursor to genocide” which has resulted in war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The non-governmental organization of lawyers which enjoys consultative status with the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) urged the international community to end Israel’s impunity and systematic violations of humanitarian and human rights law.

The Gaza Declaration condemned Israel’s acts of aggression against the Palestinian people, including the targeted killings perpetrated against civilians. It also affirmed the right to file lawsuits against the perpetrators of war crimes under the principle of international jurisdiction, and called on the UN to immediately implement the recommendations of the Goldstone report.

The declaration condemned the continued detention of thousands of Palestinians in Israeli jails, a large number of whom are being held under the unjust system of administrative detention. It deplored the continued arbitrary detention and ill-treatment of children separated from their families in clear violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

With regard to the complicity of the international community in the Israeli war crimes, the declaration said that the failure of the international community to hold Israel accountable for the crimes it committed against the people of Palestine underscores its complicity in such crimes.

Should the International Criminal Court and the Security Council fail to hold Israel accountable, the association called on members of the General Assembly to act, under Article 22 of the UN Charter, and form an affiliated body to investigate the alleged crimes and prosecute their perpetrators.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar

* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
