The Need for a 21st Century Nuremberg Tribunal

23 Jul

It was reported in The Independent today that students are being offered grants in exchange for tweeting pro-Israel propaganda. This has shed further light on how certain breaches of international law by “states” like Israel are positively portrayed through media strategy. Whether Israel has a right to defend itself or not should be put aside for a minute to try and comprehend the status quo.

We’ve all been hearing and watching horrifying experiences where missiles are being fired directly at children, ending not only their lives but also their parents’ who lose the purpose of their lives with the death of their children.

The Knesset Party has made their stance clear: Palestinian mothers and children should all be exterminated so as to prevent further breeding of “snakes” (in the words of Ayelet Shaked).

I’m not even going to go into the right to self-defence because, if we’re honest, international law does not apply to the likes of Israel or the US. But what I will say is: the right to self-defence is not synonymous with genocide. The Jewish community has had a tragic history with one of the most horrifying atrocities ever committed against mankind (the Holocaust). How is it possible for that very community to commit that very atrocity for which the entire world sheds tears today? How is it possible for the death of one Israeli soldier to inspire the condemnation of Western media when it can’t spare a minute of coverage on the hundreds of innocent Palestinians being exterminated?

Whether it’s the Genocide Convention 1948, or any international covenant that has followed since, we can be clear that genocide is being committed against the Palestinian people. The Western media (in line with Western foreign policy) has been fighting on the wrong side of history for ages now. No right of self-defence permits genocide. The massacre of Palestinians is condemnable and there is no doubt about that. But what is FAR more morally, ethically and legally condemnable is the role of Western governments and western media in backing the 21st century version of a fascist “state.”

The next Nuremberg-type tribunal to hold fascists accountable for their crimes should be set up. And the entire Israeli administration, it’s soldiers, it’s Arab backers (like the great Saudi Arabia) and all its Western backers should be put on trial.
