ISRAEL, the UN and International Justice
The world finally took notice of long standing charges of Israeli war crimes and crimes against humanity following the brutal December to January assault on Gaza. Recent reports from Amnesty International, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Israeli soldiers themselves have been documenting these crimes. The question that looms large is what the international community can do about these violations of international law.
We begin this week’s Radio Intifada by discussing these recent reports and the current conditions in Gaza and then turn to an exploration both of UN-related possibilities and the role of national courts in applying the principle of universal jurisdiction.
