The brothers were abducted from the village of Deir Nitham, northwest of Ramallah, before dawn on Saturday. They were identified as Qadri Tamimi, 20, and his older brother Mustafa Tamimi, 27.

Mustafa Tamimi is an officer with the Palestinian police in the Hebron area, in the southern part of the West Bank.

The father of the two men, Abdel-Hafeedh Tamimi, told reporters that the soldiers stormed into their home while the family was sleeping, terrifying all the occupants and ransacking their belongings.

A third brother, Adham, was abducted by Israeli forces two months ago and is still being held in Israeli detention and interrogated without any charges having been brought against him.

Their father told reporters with the Ma’an News Agency that his sons were ‘brutally assaulted’ before being taken by Israeli troops.

The family has also been targeted with an Israeli demolition order on their home, issued in February, under the pretext that the home was built without a permit. Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank or East Jerusalem, yet over 550,000 Israelis live in illegal settlements across the region.

In addition, two men were abducted at the Qalandia checkpoint, which is the main checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah. They were identified as Shafiq Wajih Awwad and Samed Emteir.

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.
