[ PIC 30/08/2014 – 10:51 AM ]


ISTANBUL, (PIC)– The two-day international forum in support of Gaza is expected to kick off on Saturday in Istanbul under the auspices of Qatar Charity (QC).

The conference came a few days after the signing of a durable truce agreement that ended the 51-day Israeli aggression on Gaza. More than two thousand people were killed and 11,000 others were injured during the offensive in addition to the huge destruction of infrastructure.

Dozens of Arab, Islamic and international relief associations have declared their intention to participate in the construction of Gaza. Issues related to the demolished homes, health sector, injured people, demolished mosques, economic development, and education sector are planned to be discussed during the event.

QC Deputy Executive Director Ebrahim Zainal told Quds Press that the conference is expected to adopt recommendations and mechanisms for urgent relief projects in Gaza.

For his part, head of the Palestinian Forum in Britain Ziad Aloul has praised the Turkish role in support of the Palestinian issue most recently was the organization of this conference and the treatment of dozens of injured people who were wounded during the aggression.

On the other hand, he pointed out that solidarity activists in Britain would ask the British parliament to pressure its government for the sake of halting London’s military cooperation with Tel Aviv and to condemn the aggression on Gaza.



Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?


Right to Resist

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275 (2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
