Wanted in Israel for War Crimes

Wanted” is an Israeli that demands the trial of the Israeli military commanders and ministers as War crimes especially what they had done in Gaza war 2008-2009.

From those commanders we got our Shaked affair hero Binyamin Fouad Ben Eliezer ,here is what is mentioned in the website regarding his war crimes in 1967

At the end of the ’67 war, the suspect was the head of the Sayeret Shaked IDF Unit. According to testimonies by Israeli and Egyptian soldiers, the suspect ordered the killing of 250 Egyptian or Palestinian fighters (exact nationality unclear) shortly after the war ended. Evidence indicates that the killings were carried out using helicopters flying low above the Sinai desert, hunting the retreating soldiers, some of whom were unarmed.

Further eye-witness testimonies state that the suspect personally executed prisoners of war who did not obey instructions. The killing of soldiers after hostilities have ended, and the execution of prisoners of war are all expressly prohibited under international law and are classed as war crimes.

Ben Eliezer came to Egypt again after March 2007 to sign the gas export agreement with current Oil Minister Sameh Fahmy by the way. Yes Sameh Fahmy smiled and shook the hands of a war criminal whose hands are stained by our Egyptian and Arab POWs Blood.

Gaza in 1967

It is another shocking story about the war crimes against our officers in 1967 , of course you know that after the 5th of June 1967 the commandership of the Egyptian army gave its orders to the army to withdraw from Sinai and from Gaza , I am not going to speak about this stupid decision from unqualified commandership but this just historical introduction.

Some of our misfortune officers and soldiers who did not have time to withdraw and were captured whether in the city or its borders were taken and gathered to form some kind of circle in some square at Gaza. They were burned alive.

The people of Gaza understood what was going against our officers and so some of them offered help to officers and soldiers to escape that living hell in 1967.

Many people ignore that the PLO or what was better known as "Shokairians" then in Gaza { tribute to Ahmed Shokair the founder of PLO} were also hunted down by the IDF. I can’t forget what Fouad Hagazi ,the famous former POW and novelist said once in the TV about the murder of 16 years Palestinian boy from PLO in front of the Egyptian POWs.

Spain opens war crimes investigation against Israel

On the 30th of January 2009 the high court in Spain decided to open a war-crimes investigation into a former Israeli defence minister and six of his military officials. And You won’t believe who that former Israeli defence minister : Our old friend Ben-Eliezer !!!

The war crime of Eliezer this time goes back to 2002 when Israel bombed a building in the Gaza Strip killing 14 civilians and a Hamas comander Salah Shehade . Among the victims were Nine Children

If found convicted Ben-Eliezer will be wanted across the EU.

Of course Israel attacked this decision and Livni came and said the Spanish FM called her and told her not be worry because Spain decided to correct  that mistake regarding the jurisdictions !!??

Livni described this as an abuse of Spanish judicial system , I won’t be surprised because she herself is a war crime.

It  is worth to mention Eliezer killed Arab POWs in 1967 in what is better known as the Shaked affair.

Historically this is not the first war crimes case against Israel in Europe , I remember that famous Palestinian lawyer in UK Michel Massih tried to push similiar case in the British courts , I think he managed with one of the IDF generals who can´t put his foot in the British soil now.

The road to the ICC

ICC announced new rules to encourage somehow the war criminals to show up with their dignity  in the court !! They can return back to their countries during the trial ..etc. Of course this can happen in a perfect world.No war criminal will give up that easily
Already Amr Moussa , the general secretary of the Arab league is having talks with the ICC in order to sue the IDF for war crimes against the Palestinian People in Gaza as the evidence of war crimes was crystal clear. I respect Moussa’s quick and smart move but I wonder why he did not the same the thing with the Egyptian POWs case when he was a FM of Egypt or even in his current position with my all respect and support to the Palestinian cause1
This is from the official side , unofficially some Arabic civil society and human rights organization will have a meeting today at San’a’ governorate in Yemen in order to form an alliance to sue the IDF war criminals abroad, again I wonder why our civil society organization did not think in this option before but it is a good step. But of course I do not want to be pessimistic already the civil society and human rights organizations in the Arab world are too weak .
On the other hand the Israeli government knows that its soldiers and officers can be sued from wars crimes and as their habit to break international laws and so it announced that it would protect any Israeli fighter accused of war crimes will be granted a state protection from prosecution over seas. Strangely Ehud Olmert who once said that he cried for the murder of the Palestinian children was the one who announced this statement.
Still the human rights organizations in Israel are giving hard time to the military establishment and also the radical Zionists. Yesh Din,an Israeli Human rights organization is calling the IDF to sack a military Rabbi who distributed religious books on the soldiers calling them to show no mercy to a cruel enemy .

Another POWs Case to be adjourned

Well I did not expect that the court to do anything in the case except that : To adjourn the case. Last 12th of January 2009 the court in North Cairo adjourned the “Rush Shakid” case to the next 6th of April 20091.

Another Adjournment !!

With my all respect the POWs families should not depend on local courts !!

  1. yes to the 6th of April,the anniversary of Egypt’s first public strike !! []

The IDF war Crimes continue despite they could have been stoppped

The IDF war crimes continue in Gaza and the world is watching silently where as hundreds of innocent children ,women and children are being killed. They were killed by the IDF favorite weapons : The incendiary weapons !! It became an official fact that Israel is using White phosphorus after all it targeted the UNRWA buildings with it for three times !! Of course we do not need to mention the DIME and other unknown weapons used in this barbaric Nazi war

This is not the first time Israel used incendiary weapons against civilians or even against military to be accurate because I can’t forget the fact that the IDF and IAF mostly nobly poured napalm on our officers and soldiers in their attempt to withdraw from Sinai in the six days war. I can’t forget the fact that napalm was used against our citizens in the Suez Canal Cities on the morning of the 5th of June 1967 !!

In all of the Israeli wars with us prohibited weapons were used and the world acted as if we were less than animals with my all due respect.

POW Camps in Gaza

I am sorry for the lack of the updates in this website. I am afraid I am kind of busy in my blog following the Gaza crisis. Still I found this news today from RafahKid and I though I should post it here. The IDF did not waste any ime in building POWs camps in Gaza.

Based on PNN Report ; Rafah Kid is reporting the following :

The Israeli military imposed four detention camps in the Gaza Strip where they are holding at least 500 Palestinians.

At the site of the former settlement of Netzarim is one camp, with a second in the north’s Beit Hanoun, another in Bani Suheila in the south and a four near the Karni Crossing.

Some Palestinian security prisoners were deported to the Israeli intelligence service to be investigated as part of the “wanted lists of the occupation authorities” for belonging to Hamas.

The problem is that there are already too many Palestinian POWs in the Israeli prisons.

We should not forget that among the Israeli so-called reasons to launch that war against the Gaza sector is the capture of Galid Shalit .

Adjourning the 1956 POWs case to 27th January

It is the first time to know that there is a lawsuite currently in front of the Egyptian courts concerning the 1956 Egyptian POWs who were killed by the Israeli IDF. It is a great thing. Anyhow the Compensation court decided to adjourn the lawsuite to the next January 27th,2009 .

Here are more details about the lawsuite :

  • Three families are sueing the Israeli government in specific : The prime minister and the defense and information ministers.
  • These families are the families of 1st lietenant Mamdouh Hussein and soldier Mohamed Amin and Mohamed Aliwa ; to the record this is the first time we know some of the names of the Egyptian POWs in 1956.
  • They are demanding L.E 60 Million as a compensation. 
  • The lawyer that is representing the families are Embassador Assam El-Din Hawas, the former Embassador of Egypt in Qatar ,FM assistant and the secretary general of the Egyptian society of the United nations.
  • Beside the Israeli confessions ,the lawsuite depends upon the Israeli confession aired in the Israeli TV in 1995,they should also consider the Al Jazeera report “The Way to Atlit”

It is not Said , it really happened

Egypt’s oldest English spoken newspaper The Egyptian Gazette published a report today about the Egyptian POWs, it is short an interview with lawyer Farial Abu El-Nagaa whose brother enigneer El-Aidei was killed in the 1967 Egyptian POWs massacres. Mrs. Farial is among the 250 families suing the Israeli government in front of the Egyptain courts after the broadcast of the infamous “Rosh Shaked“.

Now what stopped me in this report today was its introduction :

AN Egyptian lawyer, whose brother was one of some 250 unarmed prisoners of war (POWs) said to be killed in Sinai peninsula by the Israeli army after the 1967 war, has said that while the Egyptians want peace with the Jewish state, the Israeli military involved in the slayings must be punished !!

Said to be killed !!??

Are You kidding me ?? All this and the national Newspaper that is following the newspaper believes that it was said and that they were only 250 !!

The 250 were those who were killed by Shaked but there were thousands who were killed by the rest of the Israeli forces !!??
