Sentencing Israel of Genocide
01/18/2014 The trial, open to the public, was held from last November 20th to 25th, 2013 at the premises of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War. The charges with all their particulars were duly served on the defendants, and were read in open court by the registrar as the proceedings commenced. Neither defendant was present in these proceedings, but both were represented by the Amicus Curiae-Defense appointed team.
The charges against the state if Israel were as follows: “From 1948 and continuing to date the state of Israel (hereafter ‘the defendant’) carried out against the Palestinian people a series of acts namely killing, causing serious bodily harm and deliberately inflicting conditions of life calculated to bring about physical destruction.
The conduct of the defendant was carried out with the intention of destroying in whole or in part the Palestinian people.

These acts were carried out by the defendant through the instrumentality of its representatives and agents including those listed in Appendices 1 and 2. Such conduct constitutes the Crime of Genocide under international law including the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide 1948 (‘the Genocide Convention’) in particular Article II and punishable under Article III of the said Convention. It also constitutes crime of genocide as stipulated in Article 10 of the Charter of the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War. Such conduct by the defendant as an occupying power also violates customary international law as embodied in the Hague Convention of 1907 Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land, and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949. Such conduct also constitutes War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity under international law.” More...
