Israeli Soldiers Affirm Palestinians' Accusations

Listen Now [5 min 17 sec] add to playlist

Morning Edition, March 26, 2009 Testimony from Israeli soldiers, as well as human rights groups and U.N. investigators, is bolstering claims made by Palestinian witnesses that the Israeli army needlessly killed and wounded civilians during the recent war in the Gaza Strip.

Some soldiers say they were given incredibly permissive rules of engagement and were urged to see the Gaza attack as a kind of holy war.

And, in a new report, Human Rights Watch alleges that the Israeli army unlawfully used white phosphorous artillery shells over densely populated civilian areas.

(Because of intense interest in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, NPR makes available free transcripts of its coverage.

 AMNESTY INTERNATION USA 1/30/09

Hours before Israel announced a ceasefire, an Amnesty International fact finding mission gained access to Gaza. Their initial reports are disturbing: the team found first hand evidence of war crimes, serious violations of international law and possible crimes against humanity by all parties to the conflict.

AI researchers continue investigating attacks against southern Israel and are currently documenting the true scale of devastation wrought on civilians in Gaza. The stories they report are harrowing.


In the early afternoon of January 4th, three young paramedics walked through a field on a rescue mission to save a group of wounded men in a nearby orchard. A 12-year-old boy, standing by his house, assisted the operation by pointing to where the men could be found. An Israeli air strike on the area killed all four.

The bodies of the four victims could not be retrieved for two days. Ambulance crews who tried to approach the site came under fire from Israeli forces.

Our researchers later traveled to the scene of the strike with the two ambulance drivers who witnessed the attack. They met with the boy’s distraught mother and found the remains of the missile. The label of the missile read, “guided missile, surface attack” and cited the United States as the country of origin.

This is just one of many similar stories.

Under the Geneva Conventions, medical personnel searching, collecting, transporting or treating the wounded must be protected and respected in all circumstances. Clearly, this was not the case on Jan. 4th.


Since we last emailed you, more than 87,000 of you have written Congress and former administration officials. These emails, along with the massive outpouring of letters from around the world from other Amnesty sections, are making an impact. Just this week:

                         the United Nations pledged $613 million in aid for Gaza

                         60 members of Congress signed a letter to Secretary of State Hillary of Clinton calling for humanitarian support for Gaza

                         And hours ago, the US pledged $20 million in aid1-2

We have a small window of opportunity to build on this momentum:

SIGN PETITION HERE: urge Secretary Clinton and Ambassador Susan Rice to push for a full-fledged independent investigation.

This investigation is critical for many reasons, not the least of which is the clear evidence of the use of white phosphorous, as well as the mounting evidence of the misuse of US arms3. As you read this, Amnesty researchers continue documenting the use of arms, and we expect an action specifically calling on Congress to investigate the misuse of US weapons in this conflict in the coming weeks.

Everyone is responsible for the protection of international law. The US government must not turn a blind eye to possible war crimes and crimes against humanity. It should support an independent international inquiry by the United Nations into allegations of violations of international humanitarian and human rights law - by all groups participating in the conflict.

The story of the paramedics and the young boy is not an anomaly.
 Write Secretary Clinton and Ambassador Rice today and urge accountability for abuses in Gaza and southern Israel now.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Children in The Hands of IDF
 
Today another former member of the IDF's "Child Killing Unit" speaks out. And again, we see that Israel has a long standing policy of killing children, torturing children, jailing children, and, get this, using "Military Tribunals" to try children aged 16. Witness the sickness of these people:
"You take the kid, you blindfold him, you handcuff him, he's really shaking... Sometimes you cuff his legs too. Sometimes it cuts off the circulation. “

"He doesn't understand a word of what's going on around him. He doesn't know what you're going to do with him. He just knows we are soldiers with guns. That we kill people. Maybe they think we're going to kill him. “

"A lot of the time they're peeing their pants, just sit there peeing their pants, crying. But usually they're very quiet.''
