United Nations. Israel’s policies against the Palestinians are … a “crime against humanity”.
Israel’s policies against the Palestinians are tantamount to a “crime against humanity”, the United Nations’ human rights rapporteur has said. Richard Falk said in a statement on Tuesday that the UN must “implement the agreed norm of a responsibility to protect a civilian population being collectively punished by policies that amount to a crime against humanity”.The statement came on the same day that the UN Human Rights Council urged Israel to implement 99 measures to improve its rights record. Falk said it would seem “mandatory” that the UN’s International Criminal Court investigate Israel’s policies in regard to the Palestinians.“[The court could] determine whether the Israeli civilian leaders and military commanders responsible for the Gaza siege should be indicted and prosecuted for violations of international criminal law,” he said.
