UJ is a well-established principle, used by America (against Liberia's Chuckie Taylor), Israel (against Adolph Eichmann) and other nations as a legitimate law enforcement tool for crimes of war and against humanity. All nations may use it.

Claim: LP advocates denying "terrorists" and "unlawful combatants" their rights.

Fact Check

By law, everyone is innocent unless or until proved guilty with substantive facts to prove it. The term "unlawful combatant" is unrecognized in international law and has no standing.

Claim: LP wants lawyers denied "classified material" to prosecute persons accused of torture.

Fact Check

No relevant information should ever be withheld for any reason to protect alleged torturers or other criminals.

Claim: LP wants a majority bloc of UN states denied their right to enforce human rights policy.

Fact Check

It objects to Goldstone Commission and other human rights groups' revelations of Israeli crimes of war and against humanity during Operation Cast Lead to absolve its perpetrator's and America's (as a co-conspirator) of any culpability for their lawlessness.

Fact Check

Israel's Separation Wall is being built on 12% of confiscated Palestinian land. In 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled it illegal, and ordered it dismantled.
