UN Israeli 66 years genocide of PalestineHeinous Crimes Tuesday, October 9th, 2012
No words can truly describe the atrocities and horrors that have been committed against the Palestinian people by the unelected, anti-sovereignty United Nations Organization (UNO) and the illegitimate state called Israel. Crimes against humanity are committed by the Israeli IDF against the Palestinian people every day, with the full approval of the UNO.
“Crime against humanity” means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
(d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population;
(e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;
(g) Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;
(h) Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender as defined in paragraph 3, or other grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international law, in connection with any act referred to in this paragraph or any crime within the jurisdiction of the Court;
(i) Enforced disappearance of persons;
(j) The crime of apartheid;
(k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health;
The Palestinian people are also victims of UNO Israeli war crimes. War crimes are serious violations of the laws applicable in armed conflict (also known as international humanitarian law) giving rise to individual criminal responsibility. Examples of such illegal conduct include “murder”, “assassinations”, “the ill-treatment or deportation of civilian residents of an occupied territory”, “the murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war”, the killing of prisoners, “the wanton destruction of cities, towns and villages, and any devastation not justified by military, or civilian necessity”.
Article 22 of The Hague IV (“Laws of War: Laws and Customs of War on Land (Hague IV); October 18, 1907?) states that “The right of belligerents to adopt means of injuring the enemy is not unlimited“. Over the last century many other treaties have introduced laws that place constraints on belligerents. Some of the provisions, such as those in The Hague, the Geneva, and Genocide Conventions, are part of customary international law, and are binding on all – including the UN, Israel, the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Russia, China and all NATO nations.
Fourth Geneva Convention Article 47, the first paragraph in Section III: Occupied territories, restricted the territorial gains which could be made through war by stating:
Protected persons who are in occupied territory shall not be deprived, in any case or in any manner whatsoever, of the benefits of the present Convention by any change introduced, as the result of the occupation of a territory, into the institutions or government of the said territory, nor by any agreement concluded between the authorities of the occupied territories and the Occupying Power, nor by any annexation by the latter of the whole or part of the occupied territory.
Article 49 prohibits the forced mass movement of people out of or into occupied state’s territory:
Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of their motive. … The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.
United Nations General Assembly Resolution 799
2. Reaffirms the applicability of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 12 August 1949 to all the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since 1967, including Jerusalem, and affirms that deportation of civilians constitutes a contravention of its obligations under the Convention.
Law Governing Belligerent Occupation – “Neither occupation nor the law of war operate to transfer sovereignty over the territory occupied.“
On December 9, 1948, the United Nations (UN) approved the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This convention establishes “genocide” as an international crime, which signatory nations “undertake to prevent and punish.” It defines genocide as:
Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Today the UNO and the mass media are deafeningly silent. Nothing is spoken or written of the UNO sanctioned and supported genocides that is and has taken place in Palestine for 60 years now, against the military ousted Taliban in opium drug trafficking revived Afghanistan (the primary mission of the US, Canadian and NATO military is to guard and transport the illicit Opium of Afghanistan), against oil rich Iraq, against oil rich Darfur, against oil rich Libya, and against natural gas rich Syria.
