Holding Israel Accountable
Israeli rogue officials to the ICC.
by Stephen Lendman
For decades, world leaders let Israel get away with murder. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights ( PCHR ) said enough is enough. It wants Israeli officials held accountable.
It launched a "Palestine to the ICC" campaign. It wants relevant stakeholders involved. They include Palestine, ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, and enough world leaders who matter.
It wants them to "fulfill their responsibilities" to ensure long delayed justice and redress for decades of horrendous Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
The ICC is a permanent tribunal. It was established to prosecute individuals for crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. In 2017, it's jurisdiction extends to criminal aggression.
On July 1, 2002, it was established by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. It's history isn't encouraging. It serves wealth and power. It's an imperial tool.
