Israeli force "was unnecessary, disproportionate, excessive, inappropriate and resulted in the wholly avoidable killing and maiming of a large number of civilian passengers."
Israel made "a deliberate attempt....to suppress or destroy evidence." It fabricated its own version of events. They included fake videos and other falsified materials.
Despite indisputable crimes against humanity and high-seas piracy, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed his own pro-Israeli commission. He spurned justice in the process.
Former New Zealand Prime Minister Geoffrey Palmer chaired it. Notorious human rights violator Alvaro Uribe was vice chairman. Formerly he was Colombia's president. He ranks among the region's worst scoundrels. He should be in prison, not impaneled to judge others.
His resume includes horrendous human rights abuses, murder, corruption and scandal, along with close ties to drug lords and paramilitary death squads. He also supports the worst of US and Israeli crimes.
He, Palmer, and two other Ban appointees absolved Israel of cold-blooded murder.
Under Fourth Geneva's Article 146, each High Contracting Party is "under the obligation to search for persons alleged to have committed, or to have ordered to be committed, such grave breaches, and shall bring such persons, regardless of their nationality, before its own courts."
Key also is Fourth Geneva's Article 33. It prohibits collective punishment. Gaza's blockade is illegal. It violates Fourth Geneva and other international law.
