Subject: UN request for justice
Please back Mairead Maguire’s call to the the leaders of UN. to bring Israel to justice over it war crimes in Gaza…link to story..
Please send this around to the groups you belong to and your friends..
To Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and General Assembly President Father Miguel D’Escoto
I call upon you to seriously consider trying Israel for war crimes.
That you establish an International Criminal Tribunal for Israel (ICTI),
As suggested by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire please add your voices to the many calls from international jurists, human rights organizations and individuals to bring Israel to justice for its war crimes.
You can do this as under international law, an ICTI can be established by the UN General Assembly as a “subsidiary organ” under Article 22 of the UN Charter. The charter states that the UN General Assembly may establish such subsidiary organs “as it deems necessary for the performance of its functions.”
The purpose of the ICTI would be to investigate and prosecute suspected Israeli war criminals for offences against the Palestinian people.
