The Ministry of Peace produced a booklet outlining Israeli Crimes against the Palestinians in order to help achieve peace in the Holy Land through peaceful legal action. It is starkly obvious from several visits to Palestine by the author that the Palestinian people are placid, tolerant, kind, hospitable and very long-suffering. They are not aggressive, avaricious or arrogant and thus are easily oppressed by people who are. Only a handful of their bravest Resistance have been driven to retaliate against this oppression and they have done so by the limited means at their disposal; stones, home-made rockets, occasional hostage-taking and by blowing themselves up. They have no army, no effective security service and their occupiers, the Israeli Army, has taken the law unto itself so that Palestinians have no recourse to effective courts; army atrocities and those of Jewish squatters on the West Bank and in Jerusalem literally get away with murder. Moreover, Palestinians have no ‘big brother’ providing them with billions of dollars worth of arms and equipment and no actionable voice at the UN. So they suffer horrific injustices such as Israel’s military massacre of over 2,000 civilians, destroying homes, schools, hospitals, water, food and power supplies and much else in Gaza in 2014, 2012 and 2008-9. Destroying and killing members of a national, religious or ethnic group, with intent, is classed in law as Genocide. There should be swift and effective international action to arrest those who gave the orders and subject them to trial at the International Court of Justice followed by incarceration for life. The innumerable charges against Israeli high command, from forced sale of land starting in the 19th Century, through Jewish terrorist murders in the first half of the 20th, to full scale massacres like those in Shatilla refugee camp in the second half, and in Gaza in the 21st, are horrendous and often concealed. It will take years of investigation and compilation to bring them to court. And this process is made even more difficult, blocked at every turn by a well-oiled network of cowed and bribed Friends of Israel in all influential governments . Never-the-less, legal action is a civilized path to just settlement, compensation and peace and should be vigorously supported by all Human Rights activists and independent Jurists and law-makers around the world.
