ICC Has Jurisdiction Over Occupied Palestine

by Oui Sat Feb 6th, 2021 at 09:10:35 AM EST

Blocking judgement of war crimes by Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump and today Joe Biden ...

The ugly war of 2014 will be judged by the ICC in The Hague ... a stone's throw from where I live. Both Israel and Hamas will be held responsible for individual acts against humanity. No longer will western allies be beyond Lady Justice of an International Court.

Both Israel and the United States have sanctioned judges of the Court ... beyond pale and reprehensible of states claiming to be an example of democracy. After the Nuremberg trials, persons should be held responsible for their ugly acts. Torture and rendition, imprisonment without a fair trial and granting "presidential" pardon should not be made possible. Small but distinct steps ...


U.S. State Department Press Statement

Opposing International Criminal Court Attempts to Affirm Territorial Jurisdiction Over the Palestinian Situation

 Today, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued a decision claiming jurisdiction in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, while expressly recognizing the serious legal and factual questions that surround its ability to do so.
As we made clear when the Palestinians purported to join the Rome Statute in 2015, we do not believe the Palestinians qualify as a sovereign state, and therefore are not qualified to obtain membership as a state, or participate as a state in international organizations, entities, or conferences, including the ICC.

We have serious concerns about the ICC's attempts to exercise its jurisdiction over Israeli personnel.  The United States has always taken the position that the court's jurisdiction should be reserved for countries that consent to it, or that are referred by the UN Security Council.

ICC Approves Pursuing War Crimes Case Against Israeli, Palestinian leaders

Israel, of course, screamed bloody murder at the result. It’s UN ambassador, Gilad Erdan called the ruling “anti-Semitic” because it singled Israel out for criticism. This of course, perfectly fits the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, and points to why it is so problematic.

Another argument used against ICC involvement is the claim that Israel upholds the rule of law via its court system, which is empowered to investigate such matters. Under the Rome Statute, the ICC may only take up an investigation if the judiciary of the nation accused refuses to address the accusations. While Israel has prosecuted a handful of individual soldiers for specific crimes like looting, its legal system has refused to consider the culpability of higher level officers for far more serious breaches. Thus, despite such claims, the Israeli court system has refused to investigate or hold anyone accountable for the violations alleged.

Israel has so far refused to cooperate with the International Court, claiming it does not recognize its jurisdiction. Instead, it has relied on the U.S. to run interference on its behalf. The Trump administration not only denounced the investigation, it placed all the major officials of the agency under U.S. sanctions. The new Biden administration is reviewing this decision and likely to undo it. However, the U.S. remains outside the ICC. The State Department has professed its displeasure at the ruling. As an outsider, we do not wield the sort of influence we might in weighing in on Israel’s behalf. But Biden will certainly make U.S. views known and seek to exert what influence it can.

UK arms exports to the UAE

What has the British government said about these concerns?

Despite critical voices from British civil society and opposition parties, the UK government has neither halted nor decreased its arms sale to the UAE. The UK has largely been silent about human rights violations by the UAE regime, which is viewed by the UK as a suitable human right promoting partner.

The UK government has actually deepened its warm relationship with the UAE, where travel, trade, education and the arts flow freely and on a large scale between the two countries. The UK government considers the UAE as an important post-Brexit trading partner, and bilateral trade is expected to double to £25 billion by 2020. 

Reportedly, the UK strategy towards the UAE is to use "soft power" mechanisms to support the government's declared commitment to "support for stability... reduced inequalities... poverty eradication".

These Three Billionaires Paved Way For Trump's Iran Deal Withdrawal

by Oui on Sun Feb 7th, 2021 at 05:49:27 PM EST
Trump Has A $259 Million Reason To Bomb Iran | June 22, 2019 |

Much analysis of Trump's slide toward war with Iran has focused on his hawkish national security adviser, John Bolton, who, reportedly requested options from the Pentagon to deploy as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East and hit Iran with 500 missiles per day. Bolton is the loudest voice inside the White House pushing for a military escalation to the administration's "maximum pressure" strategy.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, for his part, is staking out the position that the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force allows the administration to take military action against Iran without congressional approval, an unusual and broadly criticized interpretation of congressional oversight.

Yet, there's another omnipresent influence on Trump: $259 million given by some of the GOP's top supporters to boost his campaign in 2016 and support Republican congressional and senate campaigns in 2016 and 2018.

"We will then verify if in fact the sanctions were lifted correctly," he continued, adding that this was "the definitive policy of the Islamic Republic."

Biden hasn't called Israel's Netanyahu yet, raising fears of a frosty four years to come | NBC News |

In his first three weeks in office, President Joe Biden has made a flurry of phone calls to American allies around the world, including the leaders of Canada, Britain, France and Japan.

But one close American ally's leader has so far been left conspicuously off the new president's call list: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

While it is clear that Biden has his hands full with a myriad domestic challenges, every day the phone doesn't ring adds to concerns in Israel that Netanyahu is being frozen out by the New Democratic administration because of his close ties with Donald Trump and his public antagonism of Barack Obama.

The contrast between Biden and Trump is stark: Trump called Netanyahu within two days of taking office in 2017.

I believe the offensive tricks played out by Bibi Netanyahu runs deeper. The relationship US-Israel may be strong, there is no bond between the Likud of Netanyahu and now President Biden. Former Secretary of State John Kerry too plays an important role in Biden's administration. Both Democratic leaders have a long and strong experience in US foreign policy. The anguish of Israeli diplomats is well deserved.

The flap over the invitation added to a growing perception that Israel's government is becoming a partisan Republican player in US politics, despite historically close ties to lawmakers in both parties.

Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, said the invitation to Mr Netanyahu by Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner was "hubris."

Mr Boehner announced that Mr Netanyahu had been invited to speak to Congress about Iran. President Barack Obama's administration was not consulted, prompting the White House to question whether protocol had been breached.

Biden's failure to call Netanyahu several weeks into his administration is seen by some as a snub, and has led to speculation about his approach to Israel.

Israel debates banning COVID-19 vaccines for Gaza until captives released | JPost |

A debate on the matter is both "criminal and shameful." The Red Cross clearly states that the obligation to observe humanitarian law does "not depend on reciprocity," Cassif explained.

He acknowledged that Hamas had acted "criminally" in holding the Israeli citizens captive and that it was also unacceptable and a violation of international law. But Cassif charged that Hamas' actions were akin to those of the IDF in the West Bank: the IDF enters

Palestinian homes in the middle of the night to "abduct" people and then holds them without charges. "This is no less terrible than what Hamas does," he said.

At one point a shouting match broke out between FADC chairman MK Tzvi Hauser (Derech Eretz) and Cassif.

Jonathan Cook - Antisemitism Claims Mask a Reign of Political and Cultural Terror Across Europe

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz has run a fascinating long report this week offering a disturbing snapshot of the political climate rapidly emerging across Europe on the issue of antisemitism. The article documents a kind of cultural, political and intellectual reign of terror in Germany since the parliament passed a resolution last year equating support for non-violent boycotts of Israel - in solidarity with Palestinians oppressed by Israel - with antisemitism.

The article concerns Germany but anyone reading it will see very strong parallels with what is happening in other European countries, especially the UK and France.

Israel's dirty war ... arrogant and beyond humanity. The war in Lebanon created the resistance movement Hizbollah. The chaos in Lebanon endures ... as in Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Libya.

Ministers also approved the advancement of legislation to award medals to members of the South Lebanon Army (SLA), which fought alongside IDF soldiers during Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon from September 1982 to May 2000.

...
Israel dismantled the security zone and hurriedly pulled back to the international border in late May 2000, under prime minister Ehud Barak. The South Lebanon Army, a militia backed by Israel that fought alongside the IDF in the zone, collapsed as Israel departed. The Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group subsequently moved into the area, and a Hezbollah cross-border raid led to the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

The campaign will be the ninth recognized by the military, alongside the 1948 Independence War, 1956 Sinai War, 1967 Six Day War, 1967-1970 War of Attrition, 1973 Yom Kippur War, 1982 First Lebanon War, 2006 Second Lebanon War, and 2014 Gaza war, known officially as Operation Protective Edge.

An estimated 675 troops were killed during Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon. The period was covered in the television documentary "War with No Name," which was released last year, in a nod to the lack of official recognition for Israel's 18-year presence in southern Lebanon.

Intrigue in The Hague death threats against Palestinian ICC activist probed | JPost - Aug. 11, 2016 |

Nada Kiswanson, a legal researcher at Palestinian rights group Al-Haq, said the threats began early this year and have continued on a regular basis since.

"My channels of communication have been totally compromised," Kiswanson told Reuters, adding that she had received death threats by e-mail, via family members and in the form of flower deliveries to her home with accompanying messages.

When she purchased an anonymous pre-paid mobile phone number, she received a threat on it a day later. Messages had come in Dutch, English and "broken Arabic," she said.

The Jordanian-Swedish citizen had also been called on a family member's pre-paid Jordanian number while staying in the country, while a relative in Sweden had been called and told that Kiswanson would be "eliminated."
