OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Islamic-Christian Commission in support of Jerusalem and holy sites strongly condemned the Israeli Municipality’s approval of the establishment of a religious school in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.

General Director of the commission Hanna Issa said in a statement on Saturday that the Israeli occupation authorities have resumed settlement expansion and violations against Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Jerusalem following the end of the Israeli war on Gaza.

The resumption of settlement expansion coincides with the Israeli right wing’s calls for resuming and intensifying Judaization plans in occupied Jerusalem, he added.

Issa denounced rabbi Eldad Shmuel’s incitement against Palestinian Christians after he said: “Christianity is not less dangerous than Islam. The Arabs may be coming at us with explosions and the Christians come wearing ties, but they are no less dangerous.”

Such statements prove that the conflict against Israeli is a religious, ideological and political conflict, Issa added.

On the other hand, MP for Hamas parliamentary bloc Khaled Tafesh stated that the state of cautious calm in the West Bank is only temporary in light of Israeli frequent attacks, escalated settlement expansion and Judaization schemes.

He warned that these violations and attacks would lead to a general explosion of the situation.

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

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.
