Amnesty slams Israel 'war crimes'

Most Palestinian casualties are unjustifiable, Amnesty says
Amnesty International has accused Israel of committing war crimes in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The rights group's report for 2004 says Israeli forces have killed some 700 Palestinians - including 150 children - mostly in unlawful circumstances.

The report lists "reckless shooting, shelling and air strikes in civilian areas... and excessive use of force".

It also condemns the killing of Israeli civilians by Palestinian militants and violence by Jewish settlers.

"Certain abuses committed by the Israeli army constituted crimes against humanity and war crimes," Amnesty's report says.

"The deliberate targeting of civilians by Palestinian armed groups constituted crimes against humanity," it adds.

'Impunity' Amnesty's accusations against the Israeli army include unlawful killings, torture, extensive and wanton destruction of property, obstruction of medical assistance and targeting of medical personnel Amnesty also says Israel has continued to use Palestinians as "human shields" during military operations, "forcing them to carry out tasks that endangered their lives", despite an injunction by Israel's high court banning the practice.

As one of the 49 original signers of the UN Charter, the United States committed itself to the ideals and practices of the norms of international law. Only two U.S. senators voted against the treaty, which includes Article 2(4) that specifically prohibits “…the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state….” In a September 23, 2003 speech to the United Nations, President Bush noted that both the UN Charter and American founding documents “recognize a moral law that stands above men and nations, which must be defended and enforced by men and nations.” Following World War II, just such action was taken at the Nuremberg trials and American, British, French and Soviet jurists established Article VI of the Nuremberg Charter, which legally defines “Crimes Against Peace.”

Kan DU LESE Shogun?? Det står altså her EUROPEAN CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Jeg har TO GANGER gitt en relativ bra forklaring på hvorfor Donald Rumsfeld vil gå fri, da det er en menneskerettighets-organisasjon som vil ha ham straffet, og IKKE landet Frankrike som du skrev i et innlegg.

Mange Nazi-jegere har fått tatt nazister i landflyktighet i Latin-Amerika og til slutt ble det også endelig en sak også mot Pinochet, så hvorfor IKKE i hvertfall glede seg over at noen dommere også er ute etter Rumsfeld??!!

Så du tror altså, Shogun at menneskerettigheter ikke er noe å bry seg om?? og at menneskerettighetsorganisasjoner og prisbelønte filmskapere, alle nyhetskanaler, fra utenlandske til norske driver med propaganda og at alle bildebevisene er manipulerte.

"Rumsfeld’s presence on French territory gives French courts jurisdiction to prosecute him for having ordered and authorized torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere.

In addition, having resigned from his position of U.S. Secretary of Defense a year ago, Rumsfeld can no longer try to claim immunity as a head of state or government official. Nor can he claim immunity as former state official, as international law does not recognize such immunity in the case of international crimes including the crime of torture."

Det skjønner jeg, det er forståelig ut i fra at du retter ditt hat mot folk som lever som hovedpersonen i Bjørneboe-oversatte De Sade's "Justine". Ditt hat er rettet ofte mot det Irakiske og det Palestinske folk, som du kaller for "svin og "udyr". Det Palestinske og Irakiske folks situasjon har gått fra ille til verre, fra å bli tvunget til å leve under den ene krigsforbryteren etter den andre. Det Irakiske: - Fra før; å leve under diktatoren og torturisten Saddam til den sadistiske terrorist og okkupant USA, som nå er ansvarlig for at ca. 1 mill. Irakere nå er døde siden invasjon og okkupasjonen i mars 2003 og cirka 4 millioner nå er flyktninger.

Torturing Palestinian Detainees

Stephen Lendman

B'Tselem is the conservative Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories with a well-deserved reputation for accuracy. A group of prominent academics, attorneys, journalists and Knesset members founded the organization in 1989 to "document and educate the Israeli public and policymakers about human rights violations in the Occupied Territories, combat the phenomenon of denial prevalent among the Israeli public, and help create a human rights culture in Israel" to convince government officials to respect human rights and comply with international law.
Its work covers a wide range of human rights issues that include detentions and torture. In May, 2007, it prepared a detailed 100 page report titled "Absolute Prohibition: The Torture and Ill-treatment of Palestinian Detainees" that's now available in print for those who request it. This article summarizes its findings that represent a joint effort by B'Tselem and HaMoked: Center for the Defense of the Individual that was founded in 1988 to support Palestinian rights during the first intifada in the late 1980s.

Thanksgiving Hypocrisy


by Stephen Lendman


The Thanksgiving holiday is also a way to promote what Edward Herman calls our "indispensable state," our innate goodness and the illusion of American exceptionalism, moral and cultural superiority, and the belief that the Almighty made us special the way ideological Zionists feel Jews are "the chosen people." It's a short step from these views to judging others inferior, especially those ranked low in the racial, religious, ethnic or cultural pecking order - blacks, Latinos, and today's number one target of choice for a nation at war and an enemy needed to justify it - Muslims hatefully portrayed as "radicals, extremists, gunmen, insurgents," and "Islamofascists."
Thanksgiving also serves another purpose. It has special religious significance in a nation with three-fourths of the population Christian, and the traditional separation of church and state now weakened. The US was founded as a secular state, and First Amendment constitutional law affirms it stay that way with freedom of religion guaranteed. In 1802, Jefferson called for a "wall of separation" between them, and earlier Supreme Courts agreed. They ruled this separation is required to prohibit any state religion and require government avoid undue religious involvement, its trappings or expressions. That's now changed under radicalized right wing rule.
Today, the extremist Christian Right jeopardizes religious freedom with frightening implications to consider. Their movement became dominant in the Reagan 1980s and reemerged even more virulently under George Bush. It's close to the seat of power with ideologues like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell while he was living, James Dobson, and radical Zionist Muslim hate-preacher John Hagee having enormous influence on the administration and Congress. Dominionists like Pat Robertson and others support the bill as do influential sponsoring members of both Houses. Their goal is simple, but they won't admit it - tear down the sacred wall between between church and state so the US can be governed by their extremist Christian dogma. It would make believers of other faiths, or none at all, lawbreakers with their version of Christian canon the new law of the land - a very scary prospect for about 75 million non-Christians in the country and many of Christian faith who won't go along.
If it's ever adopted, this bill will prevent the Supreme Court from challenging the right of anyone in or affiliated with federal, state or local government to affirm "God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government" - an extremist Christian God, that is. Any judge at any level interpreting the law otherwise would henceforth be subject to impeachment and prosecution in the new USA ruled by the empowered Pat Robertson types in it. It would also likely make Thanksgiving an obligatory Christian observance, even for non-Christians, and make its religious overtones mandatory.

Senator: U.S. has become haven for war criminals

WASHINGTON — More than 1,000 people from 85 countries who are accused of such crimes as rape, killings, torture and genocide are living in the United States, according to Department of Homeland Security figures.
America has become a haven for the world's war criminals because it lacks the laws needed to prosecute them, Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said Wednesday. There's been only one U.S. indictment of someone suspected of a serious human-rights abuse. Durbin said torture was the only serious human-rights violation that was a crime under American law when committed outside the United States by a non-American national.

Bush sr, Clinton, Bush jr. and the war crimes left behind

Given repercussions over Abu Ghraib, it isn't surprising that Washington recently asked the UN Security Council for another one-year extension on its war crimes exemption for peace-keepers. The prison abuse scandal is just the iceberg's tip of Geneva Convention violations by the United States, and closer inspection could send Bush Jr., Bush Sr., not to mention Bill Clinton, straight to the courtroom docks.


Back in the heady days of 1991's Persian Gulf War, Commander in Chief Bush Sr. was widely praised for the invasion's rapid end, but the true battle had only begun for many on the ground: the United States had dumped 375 tons of depleted uranium (DU) weaponry on Iraq during the war, despite foreknowledge its radioactivity would make food and water in the bombed regions unsafe for consumption on an indefinite basis (DU remains radioactive for 4.5 billion years). And according to the Geneva Conventions, that's a war crime.

DU is a highly radioactive nuclear waste product valued by the US military for its ability to penetrate tank armor, but it's also a remorseless enemy. A region's food chain is devastated by the trails of carcinogenic dust left in a DU bomb's wake, and of course, humans inhale and absorb the dust as well; even nine years after the war, veterans afflicted with Gulf War Syndrome ailments still had DU traces in their urine. Depleted uranium is also suspected in dramatically elevated levels of birth defects and cancer cases among those in bombed areas, as well as in a wide litany of Gulf War vet health complaints.


But the use of DU weaponry wasn't Bush Sr.'s only transgression in Iraq. US forces also bombed electrical grids that powered 1,410 water-treatment plants for Iraq's 22 million people, even though the Geneva Conventions clearly state that destroying or rendering useless items essential to the survival of civilian populations is illegal under international law and a war crime. An excerpt from "Strategic Attack," a 1998 US Air Force document, explains: "The electrical attacks proved extremely effective ... The loss of electricity shut down the capital's water treatment plants and led to a public health crisis from raw sewage dumped in the Tigris River." A second US Defense Intelligence Agency document, 1991's "Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities," predicted how sanctions would then be used to prevent Iraq from getting the equipment and chemicals necessary for water purification, which would result in "a shortage of pure drinking water for much of the population" leading to "increased incidences, if not epidemics, of disease."


That's where Bill Clinton came in. Far from heeding the dangers of radioactive weaponry, he contributed to the estimated 11 tons of DU weaponry used by NATO forces in the 1999 Balkan conflict. Clinton also strongly supported the devastating sanctions against Iraq that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Notoriously, in 1996 when his Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was asked about the roughly half a million Iraqi children some estimated had died as a result of the sanctions, her response was "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it."


Fast forward to 2001, when Bush Jr. used DU weaponry in the invasion of Afghanistan. Cities subjected to allied bombing were later reported to have uranium concentrations at 400% to 2000% above normal, with birth defects sharply on the rise. Then during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, US and British forces deployed an estimated 1,100-2,200 tons of depleted uranium weaponry, with untold future health implications for both Iraqis and coalition service members.

It's worth considering the future of warfare Bush-style, as can be gleaned by his administration's funding of weaponry. Despite the Cold War's end, the Bush administration is spending 12 times more on developing nuclear weapons than on securing/reducing existing stockpiles or on non-proliferation efforts.

Fra Heather Wokusch sin bok, "Progressive Handbook":

Agreed, the war crimes angle is really interesting. I have a section in the book about how not only Bush Jr. and Sr. are complicit, but Clinton also (re. depleted uranium weaponry).

Regarding this administration, it's worth looking at the Nuremberg Principles again. For example, Principle VI says that the following are punishable as crimes under international law:
(a) Crimes against peace:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or
assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the
accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
(b) War Crimes:
Violations of the laws or customs of war which include, but are not limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation of slave labor or for any other purpose of the civilian population of or in occupied territory; murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war or persons on the Seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.
(c) Crimes against humanity:
Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation and other inhumane acts done against any civilian population, or persecutions on political, racial, or religious grounds, when such acts are done or such persecutions are carried on in execution of or in connection with any crime against peace or any war crime.

Re Kramer!

Nei, definitivt ikke!
Trådens tittel var hentet fra en jødes favorittegning, fra Gilad Atzmon, om du har hørt om ham? En jøde som motsetter seg USA's og Israels brudd på relativt mange menneskerettigheter.
Han er vel som jøde, en "Self-hater" :-) da, kramer1, siden han ikke vil ta del i krigsforbrytelser og ofte blir kvalm av Israels adferd overfor andre.

Re Kramer1

Tittelen har selvfølgelig også klare referanser til de Israel og USA har med hverande og bl.a The Israel lobby å gjøre

Ja, er det ikke deilig for deg å støtte USA og Israels mange krigsforbrytelser, dr.Stockman? Siden du skriver "og bra er det", kan det jo kanskje tolkes dithen at du er glad i the jewnited states forente internasjonale kriminalitet og brudd på menneskerettigheter.

Hvem er det så som bruker WMD?

USA TERRORISM: IRAQ, FALLUJAH GENOCIDE pt.1, Italy Tv

USA Terrorism in action, using chemical WMD weapons on the civilians. USA also used Napalm bombs in Iraq as confirmed by Pentagon and British sources.

USA TERRORISM, Fallujah Genocide part 2

Føles det godt for deg å støtte USA-terrorisme, dr.Stockman!!??

Dette her er slett ikke filmet av noen fredsaktivister, som du ikke har noe til overs for, eller en såkalt "venstrevridd tv-kanal", men en Italiensk Berlusconi-kanal, tilbake i 2004.

Re Kramer1

Det skal og bør være lov å omtale en jøde i negative ordelag, uten at det dermed skal være rasistisk!

La oss si at en jøde som har hygget seg med å torturere Palestinere, må vi også da kun bruke positive adjektiver, fordi ordet "jøde" sees på som skjellsord av mange fremdeles den dag i dag?

Hvorfor ikke kjøre en liten kampanje overfor Venezuela, hvor Chaves jobber iherdig for å avskaffe demokratiet og gjøre seg selv til diktator på livstid. Heksevenner er vel fredet.

Denne tråden handler om krigsforbrytelser om du ikke har hatt evnet å legge merke til det enda, kjære dr.Stockman

Hvilken angrepskrig og hvilken overgrep og hvilken krigsforbrytelser har så Chavez stått for i Latin-Amerika? Har Chavez' Venezuela invadert USA og myrdet en del av den amerikanske befolkningen, som Bush har gjort med det Irakiske?
Hvilken kilde har du så for det dr.Stokman? Kildehenvisning, please? Hvis Venezuela har invadert og begått folkemord i et annet land, som USA har gjort i Irak, tror du ikke en slik nyhet hadde blitt gjengitt verdens media, og ikke minst media i Norge??

USA sin historie er ikke akkurat til å skryte av når det gjelder Latin-Amerika heller. Tidligere, hver gang når de enkelte gjorde små tilløp til å ville styre seg selv, ble de militærkuppet med støtte av USA og massemord av politiske motstandere i blant annet Chiles Pinochet-styret.
Er det de tider, 70- tallets mange USA-støttede militærdiktaturer du vil tilbake til, du som bruker nicknavnet dr.Stockman?

Tydelig at dere støtter Chaves sine planer om å gjeninnføre diktaturet. Kan garantere at noe lignende ikke kommer til å skje i USA.

Galningen i Venuzuela vil ødelegge seg selv.

Så jeg tror man skal ta Islamist problemet som er aller størst, aller først.

Den bedervede gjengen må rett og slett nedkjempes til den pris det engang nå har.

Heldigvis åpnes det stadig nye fronter over alt, slik var det i andre verdenskrig også...så bare les og lær.
Slik er krigens mot Islamistene i dag, spillet utartet seg og det stadig åpnet nye fronter.

Jihadistene ville kjempe i USA.....det ble ikke slik....kampene er i deres egne byer.

Tilfeldig....slettes ikke.
