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.

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 !!??

We can sue Israel abroad without the approval of the Egyptian government

I made a quick interview with Ambassador Ibrahim Youssery on my Egyptian Chronicles blog and I did not forget to ask about the POWs case.

Ambassador Ibrahim Youssery took this stand this year to sue the Egyptian government in the court for exporting the Egyptian Natural gas to Israel despite the huge public refusal. Ambassador Youssery is a retired Ambassador since 1995 and currently work as international law lawyer. Already I should mentioned that he headed for three years as Head of the Egyptian Government committee for the revision of bilateral and multilateral treaties and the Deputy chief of the Egyptian delegation in the negotiation concerning the execution of the Taba award.

I asked him in the interview about several issues current causing buzz in Egypt whether from the exportation of the natural gas to Israel or the Salam 98 Ferry or the Um Rashrash case or the POWs Case. I asked him about the Egyptian POWs Case because I know from his long international legal expertise we can benefit.

Already my main question to him was about the possibility of suing Israel outside Egypt in international courts whether the ICC or the IJC
