UN Scolds Israel

by: Christina Ryerson

A United Nations Fact Finding mission into the Israeli occupation of the West Bank released their findings the other day, citing numerous violations of international law by Israeli forces and recommending a complete cessation of settlements in the West Bank territories and Jerusalem.

“In compliance with Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention Israel must cease all settlement activities without preconditions,” said Christine Chanet, chair of the Mission from France. “We are today calling on the government of Israel to ensure full accountability for all violations, put an end to the policy of impunity and to ensure justice for all victims,” added Asma Jahangir, a member of the mission from Pakistan.

The fact finding mission, mandated by the Human Rights Council and led by Chanet, cited numerous occasions where Israeli’s were in violation of various international treaties with regard to human rights and humanitarian law to which they are party.

According to the missions report, the Israeli government, as the occupying force in the West Bank and Jerusalem, has a duty to protect the rights of the people under their control.  “Under the Fourth Geneva Convention, Palestinians living under occupation are “protected persons”, and thus the focus of Israel’s obligations under humanitarian law,” stated the report.   This position has been affirmed and reaffirmed by the International Court of Justice, the Commission on Human Rights, the Human Rights Council, the Security Council and the General Assembly.

The Fourth Geneva Convention, to which Israel is High Contracting Party, governs military occupations and the treatment of civilian populations in occupied territories.  It covers things such as allowing the establishment of hospitals and safety zones in occupied areas, the transfer of the occupying force’s population to the occupied territories, and the protection of the personal property of the occupied people.

According to the report issued by the fact finding mission, there are seven treaties Israel is party to that they are violating including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Convention on All Forms of Discrimination against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child to name a few.

In addition, the report cited evidence of government support of the settlement expansions through various secret channels in the budget and other quasi-governmental organizations such as the World Zionist Organization, and through the confiscation of Palestinian lands under the guise of needing the land for “military needs”, declaring the land “State Land” for the public good and allowing the land to then be settled by Israelis.

“These violations are all interrelated, forming part of an overall pattern of breaches that are characterized principally by the denial of the right to self-determination and systemic discrimination against the Palestinian people which occur on a daily basis,” according to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

“The magnitude of violations relating to Israel’s policies of dispossessions, evictions, demolitions and displacements from land shows the widespread nature of these breaches of human rights. The motivation behind violence and intimidation against the Palestinians and their properties is to drive the local populations away from their lands, allowing the settlements to expand,” said Unity Dow, a member of the Mission from Botswana.

  1. U.N, = UNITED NATIONS, UGLY NUISANCE’S,ULTIMATE NOSES- PICK ONE, OR ALL, As they all fit!
    They are nothing less than a World Wide Dictators Membership Club, With it’s own, do Anything to Anyone, ARMY & The Gull to Spit in anyone’s face, who dare to Disagree!
    ISRAEL, Is being Bullied by these NAZI Controlled Bigots from the so Called U.N. Security Consoles, And are getting Damn tired of their ONE Sided Attitudes!
    How would you like it if The U.N. Marched into your home & told you, ” That You have NO Choice, But to Pack-up & Leave in 24 Hours or Be FORCED OFF YOUR own PROPERTY!!?
    `ISRAEL, was given back their Ancestral homes, That was at that time a Vastly Undeveloped wasteland That Nobody Wanted & within a Few Short Years, With the BLESSINGS of the CREATOR, Transformed their Dust-bole Into a GREEN PARADISE! A PARADISE, That EVERY, “JEWISH HATING MUSLIM”, WANTS BACK!!!
    So now those Fat-Cats in the So Called United Nations, Fell that their Unlawful Courts, have the right to do so!
    However is it not Strange, Everyone that is a Nation that has grown by Rights of Conquest, NEVER gives it’s Lands Back?, Yet Israel is the EXCEPTION to that LAW that the U.N. Is Willing to go to WAR, If Necessary To FORCE the ISRAEL GOVERNMENT to GIVE THEIR LAND UP TO PLEASE THOSE MUSLIM MURDEROUS S.O.B.’S

    All I can say is This, The ISRAELI People may never Know Me or Trust Me, However, WE Serve the Same CREATOR & Therefore I Respect & Love the People of ISRAEL & If you Supporters of the United ” Communistic “, Nations, Don’t get your,” Heads on Straight,” You’ll be Forfeiting Them, ” IN The VALLY of DECISION “, Sooner than you Think!

    • You are a brainwashed retard!

      • Apparently rvn is looking into a mirror … !

      • You sat , ” Muslims are Pigs, Your Wrong! Muslims are Degenerated
        Murderers, MOHAMMAD was a FILTHY PIG, Whom Raped Young Girls & Murdered their Children, on the pretense of Serving his Black Rock He named ALLAH, Just lucky it wasn’t Petrified Camel Dung!
        If I have Offended any Idol worshiping Muslim, out there, GOOD! IT WAS INTENDED TOO!!!

    • I agree with Quester 55, Who is the UN to demand anything? God gave that land and more to the Israeli’s. It reminds me of the Bible verses about the Wells that Abraham had dug for his People and then their enemies wanted them when they saw that they were good wells. As soon as Israel got their land back and God made it Flourish, the Arabs wants wanted the Land and try and try to steal it from them. But God did warn Israel that if they did not drive out all of the inhabitants of the Land, they would be a thorn in their side!

  2. This is disgraceful! Shame on anyone for believing this nonsense. Israel is protecting her people. Human rights? Civil rights? So sick of these terms, they are complete and utter nonsense. Israel may be the only hope left for America. I stand with her and reject all the UN BS. Too bad American leaders do not have the balls Israel’s leaders have. God see’s and he is pissed. GOD Bless America & Israel, may God grant us peace and defend us in battle for all of time. UN go straight to hell, do not pass Go, do not collect 200 trillion dollars, just get out of our lives already.

  3. I couldn’t have said it better myself!
    My advice to those that truly Believe in Jesus & What is happening in the world today, Get a Good SHORT-WAVE RADIO & Tune into the real OUTSIDE World & Leave our GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED PROPAGANDA for those that are Happy, Feeding at OBAMA’S CROTCH!
    I Also Agree, May GOD SAVE & PROTECT ISRAEL & THE BELIEVERS that are still here In the UNITED STATES!

  4. There has never been an adequate definition of “Palestinian” since these are an invented group of people who serve as a political football for the Muslims. If the truth be told, the Jewish people had the land which is known as Jordan, stolen from them! Nobody seems to give a care about this travesty of international “justice!” If the Arabs and others really gave a flip about their “poor oppressed brothers” then why don’t they carve out a homeland for them from their own territories? What blatant hypocrisy! As the mountains surround Jerusalem so The Lord will surround His people. When you fight against Israel you set yourself against God Almighty. The truth is the truth however personally repugnant it may be to you. Rise up Israel for The Lord of Hosts is with you!

    • That’s right! The Palestinians are discarded or banned Arabs from their homelands and the Muslim Terrorist are using them as a reason to Destroy Israel. The Bible warns Us that those who are a Blessing to Israel will be Blessed and those who curse Israel will be themselves cursed.

      Stay Strong and Lean on God O Israel for He is your Shelter and Salvation!

    • I agree with You. Anyone touching ISRAEL THE APPLE OF GODS EYE tOUCHS god. tHE UNN. has no business telling Israel what to do on Their Land. Those Palestinians are nothing but THE OLD PHIILISTINES. In Old Test. GOD SAID TO ANIHALATE EVERY SINGLE ONE. EVEN THE WOMEN & CHILDREN.Israel has done everything They could to help Palestinians & All they get in return is Rockets & Mortars rained down on Israel. When I was in Israel a few Years ago We were walking In Jerusalem & a Surveyor was surveying & a Suicide Bomber came up to Him & blew the Surveyor & Hisself up. It was awful. The Suicide Bomber was a Hamas. This going on is Nothing but ISHMAEL Waring against Issac. UNN is to stupid to realize what is going on. Pray that those responsible in UNN. & Obama & others going against Israel will be in such confusion that they will turn & rend one another. We’re already under judgment from turning against Israel & making Israel divide their Land. There’s a Curse on Us because of that. Look at what’s happening. Amen & Amen.

  5. My heart grieve me that many of americans cannot remember history, and fail to realize those who do not learn from history are doom to makes it mistakes. With the rise of the internet and the previous writer said, short wave radio, there is no reason anyone should be deceive by the so called elite of our day, who are as backwards, as a barn in manhattan, may the Creator of all man have mercy on this blind generation, T

  6. What part of an everlasting inheritance “from Dan to Beersheba” are they having trouble with? God has never relented of His promise to Israel that this is their land FOREVER.

  7. This will be settled at the point of a gun. That’s why Obama,the Muslim, is sending 200 M1A1 Abrams Tanks to Egypt,along with jet fighters. This is for the Muslim Brotherhood Government to invade Israel, as Egypt has no other “enemies”.
    What would you do if you found your self in Germany in 1939? Be a good German,keep your mouth shut,go along to get along?
    You are now in that situation. Your country is aiding Despotic Muslim Governments to eliminate the only Free Country in the Middle East. What does that make us?

    • Thankfully God knows those of Us that are trying and doing all We can to help Israel and that We are against the despots in DC. Unfortunately Our Country is doomed by that which the Govt. does. Take comfort in knowing that God will protect His own!

  8. No Not retarded at all, Just willing to Draw out you,” Pretenders,” that attempt to pass yourselves off as Americans!
    It works every time.
    Now, R-V-N, You may go back & continue to feed at Obama’s Crotch Like a Good little Obamazombie!

  9. Don’t let it bother you so much TIM, Those that Support ISRAEL’S Destruction will, Themselves be Destroyed!
    Our GOD, is an Awesome GOD, He Reigns from Heaven Above, With Wisdom, Power & Might, Our GOD is an Awesome GOD!
    Try to remember, The one R-V-N, serves as god on this earth, was the same one that JESUS Kicked out of HEAVEN, At the time of Creation for trying to set it’s self up as God.

  10. Would someone clarify my understanding of history but didn’t Israel get the lands in question because they were INVADED by all three bordering countries, kicked their butts and as such go the spoils of war. Israel did not invade their neighbors, their neighbors invaded them. Sorry folks, to me if you invade my home you lose any compassion from me. The muslim’s are the absolute worst losers ever. To Israel I say “Stand your ground” because you are right and just on this issue. To the cry babies I say “Too bad , you screwed up and got your ass kicked so lick your wounds and learn from your mistakes by moving on and vowing not to do that again”

  11. Your 100% dead on the mark, Jerry!
    Any look at the lands of Israel, Before the 40′s, could tell the whole story. The Place was one huge Dust Bowl. The Muslims are a Wandering People, If given the chance, they’ll have others do their farming & food production, While they look on.
    The ONLY reason these LAZY, Pigs want what ISRAEL HAS, is due to the BLESSINGS Our LORD GOD has shown his children!
    So like the Lazy Swine they are, they will sooner Murder Little Children, Rape Women & Murder every ISRAELI & Follower’s of JESUS CHRIST That they can 7 Take the lands that are so blessed by our Creator!
    But don’t fall for OBAMA’S Smokescreens that he’s setting up with the U.N., Once he Disarms AMERICANS, He’ll be Ordering OUR Soldiers to Attack Israel, But it will be Disguised as a Supporting Jester, in favor of Israel!
    The trouble with Muslims including OBAMA, is that they Truly believe that Everyone is as Dumb as they are!
    And whats worse, As long as The So called Leader of this Country is Actively seeking the Destruction of ISRAEL, OUR LORD GOD, Will be Chastening US! In the Continued Food Shortages, crime, And giving those LOST souls a Taste of things to come, if they Refuse to Repent & Turn back to Him!
    My only words of advice, Get Saved if your not sure, you are already. Hold on to the Truth of JESUS CHRIST & DON’T GIVE UP HOPE!
    Always remember, These pigs can only destroy your body, They can’t Touch your Soul!

  12. If we apply the logic that the land belongs to the zionists because they were there 1000 years ago to the United States, all you hypocrites should be giving your land back to the Native Americans. The land under the former British protecterate of Palestine was 97% Arab-owned before the zionists committed the first acts of terror in the region in the 1930s. Does the right to property all of you hold so dear not apply to Palestinians? Denying the truth and trying to revise history isn’t working, so the Israeli government continues to seize property and deliver it to settlers. Would you be ok with this if Obama seized your property? Why the double standard? Are you Americans or Israelis? You can’t be both, traitors.

    • @JF,

      Seriously your delusional! First of all the “Native Americans” you so happily spew your words about Did Not Own the Land by their own admissions. They understood man has the dominion over the land therefore they took only what they needed which I have to respect and admire. But they did not feel they owned it so, we can’t “give it back”. As for what happened in the 30′s or who did what first is simply a child’s argument. It has no bearing on the facts that Israel was invaded and attacked by the muslim’s, got their ass handed to them and lost some territory for their troubles. Do you think if the shoe was on the other foot and Israel lost some land the muslim’s would “give it back”. NOT!!! Sorry, but as far as I’m concerned Israel is in the right. And though both they and we are straying too far from God, in the end god still protects them and those of us that believe and live by his word. I’ll bank my future on God every time, man be damned!

  13. J.F., What’s it like running around with that Log in your eyes, must be hard to see your own HYPOCRISY !!
    You Stated:Why the double standard? Are you Americans or Israelis? You can’t be both, traitors.”.
    Yet again, we see how J.F. manages to try thinking on his own. It’s a sad thing to watch those, ” Crotch Feeders “, after Stating their thirst at OBAMA’S Crotch, This is what such feedings do to the Human Brain!
    ——————————————————————–
    F.Y.I., J.F., Our Country is becoming over burdened by those that are LOYAL to two Nations, For Example: Obama’s MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD FRIENDS & Relatives,There Loyal to two nations! These ILLEGALS that Obama is turning into INSTANT CITIZENS, Live & work in this country while maintaining their Citizenship to the country they came from.
    Plus we have: JESUS BELIEVING JEWS!, American/Hebrews, African/Americans, Spanish/Americans, German/Americans, Polish/Americans, Japanese/Americans, Kenya/American(Obama), Irish/American, Chinese/American, Indian Native/American, Cuban/American, French/American, ETC………………….
    so according to your own words, All of these MILLIONS of AMERICANS, ARE TRAITORS? Where does that leave Y.O.U.? HYPOCRITE!!
    I’m Sorry, I just Realized, YOUR one of those GOD HATING ATHEIST, You DON’T BELIEVE in THE CREATOR GOD, So your feeling Superior To Those of us that do LOVE & SERVE the ONLY TRUE GOD, JESUS CHRIST!
    If Your feeling Confused,Lonely, unloved, Try JESUS, HE’S the ONLY WAY, To True Happiness & Best of all, SALVATION IS FREE for the Asking.
