South Africa Makes its Genocide Case against Israel at The Hague

South Africa Makes its Genocide Case against Israel at The Hague

This is following substantive reports and evidence of crimes against humanity. The Israeli government, Netanyahu, has committed to ethnic cleansing in Gaza, Palestine, especially on women and children.

Co-founder of The Intercept, Jeremy Scahill, reports: “On Thursday, South Africa will present its historic case before the International Court of Justice in the Hague, accusing Israel of conducting an ongoing genocide in Gaza and asking the United Nations court to issue a provisional ruling asserting its jurisdiction and instructing Israel to “immediately suspend its military operations in and against Gaza.” Israel, which has accused South Africa of “blood libel,” will present its defence on Friday.

“The U.S., Israel’s chief sponsor and defender, has dismissed South Africa’s charges as “meritless.” There is a solid, though not certain, likelihood that the court will issue a ruling finding a basis to move forward with actual genocide proceedings against Israel, a legal process that could take years to complete. But South Africa has also argued that the court should issue provisional measures to protect the Palestinians of Gaza against ongoing attacks, citing voluminous evidence that Israel is engaged in ongoing violations of the Genocide Convention. “Israel has engaged in, is engaging in and risks further engaging in genocidal acts against the Palestinian people in Gaza, the filing argues.”

South Africa’s 84-page, heavily footnoted Application to the ICJ, also called the World Court. The Court will hear the case on Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time at The Hague and will be viewable online. Progressive International will have a briefing at 1:30 p.m.
