Palestine:A question of Genocide

Posted in Uncategorized on September 27, 2011 by ahlamhelwa

According to the United Nations’ Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, adopted at the end of 1948, genocide is legally defined as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.”
Israel Charny, director of the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide in Jerusalem and former editor of the Encyclopedia of Genocide, acknowledges that Zionists committed genocidal massacres and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians
Did Israel commit genocide in 1948, is it still now involved in an act of Genocide against the Palestinian people today over 63 years later???
The question is provocative,…. But a debate over this idea has formed the crux of a heated argument among the most eminent genocide scholars in the world, and led recently to the censure of an Israeli professor by the field’s leading academic association.
The debate began in the pages of a scholarly publication, the Winter 2010 issue of the Journal of Genocide Research. Two specialists in genocide, Omer Bartov of Brown University and Martin Shaw of Roehampton University, in London, engaged in a back-and-forth exchange about whether the word “genocide” could be applied to the expulsion and killing of Arabs in Palestine during Israel’s War of Independence. During the course of the war, more than 700,000 Palestinians fled or were forced out of their homes and were later prevented from returning, creating what would become one of the world’s most enduring refugee crises.
Both Bartov and Shaw agreed that some form of what is now called “ethnic cleansing” did occur. But where Bartov was not willing to think of this as genocide, Shaw confidently argued that any policies meant to destroy a group, even if not outright murder, should be seen as genocide.
In the exchange, Bartov described Shaw’s ultimate purpose as “delegitimizing” Israel, and offered plenty of evidence for why calling what Jews did in 1948 “genocide” would only serve to render the term “meaningless.”
But it didn’t end there. Israel Charny, an American-born scholar who immigrated to Israel and who directs the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide in Jerusalem and edited the Encyclopedia of Genocide, was offended by the exchange. He wrote a response that was posted on the discussion board of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, a 16-year-old organization that is considered the pre-eminent association of its kind.
Charny did not mince words. He referred to Shaw’s argument as the “delusional projection of an angry soul,” and accused Shaw of attacks on Israel and Zionism that were “blind and rampaging.”
Charny makes it clear that he does think Jews committed what he calls “genocidal massacres” during the war of 1948, like the infamous shooting of civilians in the village of Deir Yassin, in which more than 100 unarmed people were killed in a brutal raid. But he does not consider the “ethnic cleansing” that took place as constituting genocide, nor does he think, as Shaw contends, that the Zionists had any genocidal objective.

Israel, The Wall. and Israel’s Continued Flouting of International Law

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2011 by ahlamhelwa

Holocaust guilt aside, how can Israel get away with the continued flouting of International law year after year.This statement was made two years ago, and nothing has been done.The wall is still there and growing,Palestinians are still being sheparded around like animals, in a way not seen since the Nazis were sheparding the Jews into cattle cars .No one not even Israel the so called Jewish state has the right to treat people in such a manner.WHAT IS WRONG WITH US AS A SOCIETY TO LET THIS SITUATION CONTINUE YEAR AFTER YEAR?

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR).9 July 2009

Five years on, Israel continues to disregard the International Court of Justice’s Advisory Opinion on the Wall – Statement by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

Five years ago today, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued its Advisory Opinion on the “Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory”. In its Advisory Opinion, the ICJ found that the Israeli construction of the Wall within the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), including in and around East Jerusalem, violated Israel’s obligations under international law. The ICJ stated that Israel is under an obligation to cease the works of construction of the Wall within the OPT and bring down the parts within the OPT that had already been built. The ICJ also stated that the Israeli Government should terminate the associated system of severe restrictions on the freedom of movement of Palestinian residents of the West Bank, which violates their human rights. The High Commissioner calls on Israel to act in accordance with the Advisory Opinion of the ICJ.

The Israeli Government claims that the Wall is a temporary security measure. However, the ICJ indicated that the specific route Israel has chosen for the wall is not necessary to attain its security objectives and that the construction of the wall constitutes “breaches by Israel of various of its obligations under the applicable international humanitarian law and human rights instruments”. The overwhelming majority of the planned route of the Wall – 86 percent, runs inside the West Bank, not along the 1949 Armistice Line (the Green Line). The ICJ pointed out that the route of Wall had been planned to encompass the bulk of the Israeli settlements in the OPT – settlements which are illegal under international law.

Five years after the ICJ issued its Advisory Opinion, the situation has not improved. Israel continues to disregard the views of the ICJ, and the Wall remains under construction. Since the ICJ Advisory Opinion, about 200 kilometers have been constructed, bringing the total amount constructed to 413 kilometers – 60% of the planned 709 kilometre long route.

The Wall is but one element of the wider system of severe restrictions on the freedom of movement imposed by the Israeli authorities on Palestinian residents of the West Bank. There are currently well over 600 closure obstacles blocking Palestinian movement within the West Bank. In addition, the system of roads is increasingly segregated: travel on hundreds of kilometres in the West Bank is restricted or prohibited outright for Palestinians, whereby Israelis are allowed to travel on them freely. About one third of the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem, is completely prohibited to Palestinians without a special permit issued by the Israeli military.

These severe restrictions violate not only the right to freedom of movement. They also effectively prevent Palestinian residents from exercising a wide range of other human rights, including their right to work, to health, to education and to an adequate standard of living. Farmers are prevented from accessing their fields and from exercising their right to sustain their livelihood. Due to restricted access and work permit regimes thousands of Palestinians are prevented to seek work outside their locality. Children are prevented from accessing schools and students face restrictions in choosing their university as a result of freedom of movement restrictions. Patients are prevented from accessing hospitals, blocking them from exercising their right to the highest sustainable standard of health. And Palestinian residents currently lack meaningful access to an effective remedy – judicial or otherwise – for their plight.

OHCHR calls on the Israeli Government to:

– Comply with the Advisory Opinion of the ICJ and dismantle the Wall within the OPT and make reparation for all damage suffered by all persons affected by the wall’s construction.

– End the current regime of restriction of movement within, to and from the OPT, in order to ensure that Palestinian residents are able to exercise their rights, including their right to freedom of movement, right to work, right to education, and right to the highest attainable standard of health.
