Towards the Truth Regarding War Crimes Committed in Lebanon

by : Paris
Thursday August 31, 2006 - 00:21

Lebanon has been victim of what the French government has called a ‘disproportionate’ act of war committed by Israel. This war has violated international law which stipulates that all attacks should be in keeping with proportionality and a limited use of violence against only military objectives. In addition, Israeli military operations contravened the First Additional Protocol of the Geneva Conventions, which stipulates that collective punishments and actions against the civilian population constitute a war crime.

Challenged by the Lebanese resistance, the Israeli army avenged itself by blindly bombing the civilian population, massacring or injuring hundreds of children, women and the elderly; and destroyed non-military infrastructure (milk factories, the central electrical system, school buildings) and undertook operations aiming at terrorizing the population, including in the regions where there were no Hezbollah combatants. Moreover, independent doctors made serious accusations about the utilization of illegal weapons (phosphorous bombs, gas bombs, etc).

NGO’s such as Amnesty International (1), Human Rights Watch (2) and the International Commission of Jurists have spoken about war crimes and crimes against humanity. During a special session of the Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, Mrs. Louise Arbour, High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations, on August 11th, 2006, called for an United Nations inquest regarding Israeli attacks against civilians in Lebanon. The war of destruction against Lebanon cannot be considered as a simple fact in a Middle East policy to realize the objectives of the United States and their Israeli ally.

International law and humanitarian law cannot be bypassed once again. We demand (seek) the truth. Therefore, we call for the creation of an Independent Commission designated by the United Nations to investigate the unjustified crimes committed by Israel against the Lebanese civilian population.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January
2 comments
The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
