Published on Aug 31, 2014

Palestinian human rights groups are trying to initiate an international investigation into the treatment of Palestinian civilians by the Israeli military during the Gaza war that could amount to war crimes.

On August the first, and only two hours into a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire, Israel sealed off Gaza’s southern city of Rafah and began shelling it in an attempt to rescue a captured solider. According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and the Al-Mezan rights group, the Israeli military fired at least 500 artillery shells and launched at least 100 airstrikes on Rafah within a span of 24 hours. The two-day operation led to the death of at least 190 Palestinians. 55 of them were children, and 36 others women. 14 victims were from the same family.

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.
