Aye! Put Israel on trial

The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: Israel has to be brought before a United Nations-santioned international war crimes tribunal for its atrocities and violence on the Palestinian people, the special Parliament session decided yesterday.

It also expressed the country’s disappointment with the international community, especially the UN Security Council, for their lack of effort in trying to halt the attacks.

The demand was part of 10 resolutions proposed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who tabled the motion to discuss the Israeli invasion of Gaza in the Dewan Rakyat

Abdullah said the resolutions would be presented to the relevant parliaments, the United States Con­gress and the European Parliament.

He said the latest military invasion of Gaza was the worst incident of attacks by the Zionist regime on Pales­tine since it was occupied in 1967, and that it had crippled a small territory which could not defend itself from successive and cruel attacks.

“Today, at least 800 people have been killed in Gaza, 3,000 are wounded and 15,000 more have be­come refugees after Israel laun­ched the attack codenamed ‘Cast Lead’ on Dec 27, 2008,” he added.

Abdullah said all Malaysians should unite and make a strong stand to the world against the inhumane actions of the Zionist regime.

“The attacks by Israel have contravened international laws and such actions are deemed war crimes in the Fourth Schedule of the Geneva Convention on protection for civilians during wartime,” he added.

Abdullah said Malaysia’s call for a special UN session to condemn Israel over its military aggression received a boost when the UN General As­­sembly agreed to hold the session to urge the Security Council to take action by declaring a cease­­fire and force Israel to withdraw from

However, he said, the Council only acted after allowing the Israel military attacks to proceed for two weeks.

“We all know that the reason for the lack of action by the Security Council was that Israel didn’t want it.

Israel has strong supporters within the Council.

Bolivia has annouced its cutting diplomatic ties with Israel in protest agaiinst its war in Gaza.

Shame on you , leaders of the arab countries, sitting on yr arse and not doing much.

To the two commentators above...you're just...just so pathetic & ignorant of the real situation when there are so much material available on the subject.

Just dont lap up the propaganda of the western media.
