" - Amy Goodman of Democracy Now reporting.U.N. Panel Says Israeli Settlement Policy Violates Law By NICK CUMMING-BRUCE and ISABEL KERSHNER"Israel has pursued a creeping annexation of the Palestinian territories through the creation of Jewish settlements and committed multiple violations of international law, possibly including war crimes, a United Nations panel said Thursday, calling for an immediate halt to all settlement activity and the withdrawal of all settlers.Presenting their findings in Geneva after a nearly six-month inquiry for the United Nations Human Rights Council, a panel of three judges, led by Christine Chanet of France, presented its view that Israel's settlements violated the Geneva Conventions, which prohibit a state from transferring its own civilian population into territory it has occupied. Asked if Israel's actions constituted war crimes, Ms. Chanet replied that its offenses fell under Article 8 of the International Criminal Court statute. "Article 8 of the I.C.C. statute is the chapter of war crimes," she said at a news conference. "That is the answer."" SCHMEMANN LIES: "The terrorists who organized and carried out the attack on Tuesday, at the twin towers and at the Pentagon, issued no demands, no ultimatums. They did it solely out of grievance and hatred -- hatred for the values cherished in the West as freedom, tolerance, prosperity, religious pluralism and universal suffrage, but abhorred by religious fundamentalists (and not only Muslim fundamentalists) as licentiousness, corruption, greed and apostasy. The attack in Manhattan was not only against a nation or government, but against a symbol -- the twin towers of Sodom and mammon.""One of the major barriers to the creation of two contiguous, sovereign states for Palestinians and Israelis is the existence -- and continuing growth -- of illegal Israeli colonies (widely called "settlements") on land long recognized by the United Nations as part of Palestine. Despite a repeated international condemnation, including a UN General Assembly resolution and a ruling by the International Court of Justice, the population of these settlements, which currently number 121, has grown by an average of 5% annually since 2001. That compares to an average growth of just 1.8% for the population of Israel proper.Israel has repeatedly refused to dismantle these settlements in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Golan Heights, and has repeatedly fudged and violated various moratoriums on "new" growth. As stated by Maria Viotti, Brazil's ambassador to the UN and the current rotating president of the Security Council, "Further settlement construction threatens peace in the region. Halting construction has been misrepresented as an Israeli concession while in fact international law requires it." Motivated the 9/11 Hijackers?? YouTube, Please Restore Share Channel Link:??
