    The Russell Tribunal on Palestine has ruled that Israel is guilty of Apartheid and Prosecution crimes, as its panel of jurists ruled that the Israeli actions against the Palestinians breach the prohibition of apartheid under International Law.

    The tribunal held extensive talks for two days, listened to testimonies from expert witnesses, and unanimously determined that the Israeli violations are defined under international law as apartheid, stating that “Israel subjects the Palestinians to institutionalized regime of domination, mounting to apartheid”.

    They jurists also stated that Israel practices “inhumane acts” against the Palestinians, and implements an institutionalized regime of domination.

    They also looked into Israel’s targeted killing policy, Israel’s excessive use of force against peaceful protestors, in addition to its torture and ill-treatment of Palestinians.

    They stated said that the Israeli violations against the Palestinian in the occupied territories also extend to its violations against them wherever they reside, including those who are Palestinian citizens of Israel.

    The Tribunal further stated that Israel is also involved in another crime against humanity; a crime of prosecution.

    This includes systematic attacks, collective punishment (such as Israel’s siege on Gaza), targeting civilians during Israeli invasions and assaults, destruction of Palestinian homes and structures, the Annexation Wall in the West Bank, and the forced eviction and demolition of “unrecognized” Bedouin villages in the Negev.

    The Tribunal itself is considered a court of people, and has no legal status, but it’s composed of persons with high expertise, and enjoys international respect. It is hoping to pass a message to the public and inform them about the reality of the situation in occupied Palestine, in addition to exerting pressure on world leaders and decision makers, who have failed to act until now, urging them to take strong stances against Israel’s violations.

    It called on Israel to stop all of its acts of apartheid, to end the prosecution of the Palestinian people in addition to offering assurances that Tel Aviv will not repeat these violations.

    The Tribunal further issued a call to the international community to fulfill its obligations and duties in order to ensure an end to Israel’s policies of apartheid and prosecution of the Palestinian people.

    As for the jurists’ recommendations, they called on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to investigate crimes committed by Israel, called on Palestine to comply with the Rome Statute of the International court, meaning that Palestine has the standing to bring a case against Israel to the International Criminal Court.

    They also called on the United Nations General Assembly to hold a special session to investigate Israel’s apartheid policies against the Palestinian people, including the role of all organizations, individuals and corporations who assist Israel’s apartheid policies.

    If ANY nation was found to be guilty what would be the outcome? They want to impose sanctions on Iran for wanting to protect its borders from attack -yet are not prepared to do anything about this? Why is their a different rule for them? How can these people offer a defense for their actions?

    There comes a time when the innocent shout as loud as they can and simply not being heard and constantly bullied and abused they turn to defend themselves. When doing this and protecting their wives or sister or kids they are known as the aggressors and labelled "terrorists" allowing them to commit more atrocities and the circle of abuse keeps going round and round.

    Of course i wouldnt expect you to post anything but material to contradict the thread. I admire you for your patriotic stance. What you cant deny is the independant research and report is done with no biased towards either party. They had testimony and accounts from various sources and would come to conclusion that they did lightly. It would be more admirable if you accepted the issues and suggest a posative way forward. To suggest that it simply doesnt exist doesnt wash on the international table. The fact that you guys simply deny the existance of what your race has created is disturbing. A doctor can only try to find a remedy if the patient at least accepts they are unwell. Your denial is alarming because now the evidence is clear cut.

    bla bla bla. Arabs have same rights as Jews in Israel, Arabic is official language in Israel. Apartheid accusation is nothing but desperate propaganda stunt of Israel haters.

    They come to a conclusion your nation is guilty of Apartheid. These experts spent 2 days mulling the evidence and came up with this. If you say milk is black 10 times it doesnt become black so keep repeating - it wont change what they concluded. Your nation Israel is guilty of Apartheid. Simples.
