Jordan won’t sue Israel in front of the ICC

The Jordanian Parliament did not go to the ICC to sue Israel for the war crimes done in Gaza as it was announced.The parliament decided to delay the visit of the head of legal committee in the parliament to the ICC to unknown date.

The Jordanian MP Mubarak Abu Yamin ,the head of the legal committee was going to meet Ocampo on Wednesday in the Hague  to present a memo by the name of the Jordanian Parliament to sue the IDF war criminals.

But suddenly the visit was delayed or rather cancelled for the some unknown reasons. Mr. Abu Yamin said that there were only procedural problems where as many MPs said that there were pressures from outside the Parliament to cancel this visit.

Some unnamed source said to Al Jazeera.net that Jordan could not handle the implications of such move , it would open the door of hell on the small country that already is having bad relations with Israel on the unofficial level that reflected by its turn on the official level.

I think this is right but if all the Arab countries parliaments stand with the Jordanian Parliament in its daring great move, there will be no danger on Jordan.

The Egyptian Parliament , Gaza and the Egyptian POWs

The Egyptian parliament speaker Dr. Fathi Sorror and the NDP members are saying that they would go abroad and expose the war crimes of the IDF against the people of Gaza. They said that they would head to the European Parliament to expose those war crimes against humanity. This is great and I already understand that they are doing so to prove that the Egyptian regime is not bad as portrayed in the Arabic media not because they have to do so  because they are members of the Egyptian Parliament but what about the war crimes of the IDF against our POWs in 1956 and in 1967 ??

Did they forget them ??

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.

A letter from a Palestinian Child to the US President

To the leader of the free of world : Barack Obama

A letter from a Palestinian Child to the US President

This is a letter from a Palestinian Child who does not have clear definition for terms like “terrorism” and “peace”.

I am sure the Palestinian children like Gamila, Louai and Samar have similar letters to President Obama.

Please spread this letter to president Obama.

This letter encouraged me to send a message to President Obama:

Dear President Obama  as you are working to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp ,I only ask you that the United States would stop exporting incendiary weapons to Israel like the DIME , I do not ask you to stop supporting Israel whether by money or by arms despite I know in this critical time in the American history each penny from the tax payers money the American citizen deserves now more than ever, more than Israel and more than Egypt and Pakistan.

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 .

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.

More info about Eyad

At last I found some info about Eyad Abu El-Hassan thanks to Nawra Nagam who did a real scoop as Egyptian blogger and had some sort of an interview with Samr Kuntar in Lebanon last week.

Al-kuntar shared with Nawara what he knows about Eyad Abu El-Hassan.

Eyad is from Egyptian Rafah.He was arrested by the IDF in 1989 when he entered Gaza with Ayman Yunis. Both were young men whose ages were 20 years old. They were planning to do some sort of an operation against Israel. They were actng on their own. No one sent them or they knew someone there.

In the jail both young men had to choose which team they will belong to , Fatah or Hamas. Ayman Chose Fatah where as Eyad chose Hamas.

Al-Kuntar believes Ayman was released because he chose Fatah where as till now Eyad is in jail because he chose Hamas.

Whether he chose Hamas or Fatah, Eyad is the repsonsbility of his country. Egypt should work with all possible way to return him back just like Hezbollah did with Al-Kuntar taking in consideration that according to Al-Kuntar all what Eyad did was traspasing the border.
