"The State of Israel is directly and indirectly criminally responsible for committing specific acts of genocide, ethnic cleansing, including uprooting Palestinians by military attacks, arbitrary arrests and illegal imprisonment, administrative detention, attacks on women, children and the elderly, systematic and wanton destruction of property and homes, (and) systematic expropriation and dispossession...."

He added other charges, including:

Violence to life and person (including assassinations), confiscation of lands and property, creation of separate reserves and Bantustans, disruptive public life and terrorizing a whole population (including collective punishment and reprisals)...."

In addition, "racial discrimination, stealing, looting and plundering, infliction of serious bodily or mental harm (including torture and other cruel and inhuman treatment), mutilation, causing death and serious injury, (and) deliberate imposition of (inhumane) living conditions...."

Also, "legislative measures calculated to prevent Palestinians from participation in the political, social, economic and cultural life and the deliberate creation of conditions preventing the full development of Palestinians, exploitation of labor, persecution of organizations and members, depriving persons of fundamental rights and freedoms because they oppose military occupation, colonialism, or apartheid, and other criminal acts."

Barghouti powerfully presented provable facts. Yet he's wrongfully imprisoned while legions of past and present Israeli leaders remain unaccountable for decades of crimes of war and against humanity, slow-motion genocide, and much more. Justice awaits its day.

Release Barghouti

On November 8, 2011, The New York Times (a notorious Israeli supporter) gave op-ed space to Avinoam Bar-Yosef, Jewish People Policy Planning Institute president and former daily Maariv chief diplomatic correspondent.
