Petition Calls for UN to Investigate Israel for Genocide

To UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and ICC Prosecutor:

I am a concerned person of conscience, who fears that I am witnessing the genocide of the Palestinian people by the State of Israel. Witnessing Israel’s daily violations of Palestinian human rights- military take-over of land, restriction of movement, economic strangulation, house demolitions, restrictions on basic foodstuff, mass arbitrary arrests of both adults and children, torture, extra judicial executions, and large-scale massacres of whole families, openly calling for genocide and extermination by law makers and other public figures- I can not keep silent about this 67 year-old atrocity, unfolding before our eyes.

The Crime of Genocide is defined in a declaration made by the General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 96 (I) dated 11 December 1946. I demand the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor take action and investigate the possibility that Israel is committing the Crime of Genocide against the Palestinian People, and that the office publish its findings and recommendations.

Thank you

  1. An excellent cri de coeur and principled demand on behalf of the horrifically beleaguered people of Palestine. I signed the petition. Thanks…although I have little to no faith that the UN bureaucrats who will receive the petition will do anything about it. Viva Palestine! I, too, am a Palestinian!

    (I would only have added “do this with urgency” at some point in the text of the petition. I also don’t recall noting anything about the goal for numbers of signers or the closure/presentation date. Faster, please….)

  2. Despite the good intentions of this petition, it is pointless for anyone to sign it, because since 1970 the USA has used its power of Veto to over-rule General Assembly resolutions against Israel’s behaviour towards its neighbours 39 times. Well over 100 General Assembly resolutions ‘urging’ Israel to conduct itself properly in the Middle East have been ignored by Israel.
    As usual, the USA will allow Israel to do whatever it wants, to whoever it wants, with impunity.
    The USA is powerless to bring Israel to heel, because Israel “Owns” the USA.
