Ehud Barak to the Hague!

That war crimes are being perpetuated by the Israeli military in Gaza is not anymore a question, but hard facts documented by tens of television programs, videos and photos.

The Israeli perpetuators of these crimes must be tried in an international court of justice for war crimes and crimes against humanity, in particular Ehud Barak, Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni, Chief of Staff General Gabi Ashkenazi, and Air Force Commander General Ido Nechushtan. Their crimes are definitely not less horrible than the ones that brought Milosevic and his generals to an international war crimes tribunal.

The Alternative Information Center has decided to join the call of one hundred civil organizations from all over the world demanding the opening of a procedure by the International Court of Justice in the Hague.

In the meantime, and until an international court of justice will put Israeli leaders on trial, civil society throughout the world should strengthen the campaign for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, a state that has clearly put itself outside the framework of international law and human rights constraints.

Impunity is what may transform international relations into a jungle. Whoever aspires to a civilized world, in which human lives and dignity are respected, must demand the immediate implementation of sanctions on the outlaw state of Israel.

At the last minute...

We have just heard that the Israeli forces attacked a hospital of Gaza City, which is on fire. Hundreds are buried under the rubble and the military is preventing ambulances to reach the place.

BARAK & all the rest of them—TO NUREMBERG!
