The government of Israel has a long history of violating the human rights of Palestinians. This decades-long conflict has been characterized by discriminatory policies, systemic violence and oppression, and forced displacement. The situation has become worse in recent years as the government of Israel has taken more extreme measures to consolidate its control over Palestine. It is imperative that the government of Israel be held accountable for its actions and that it cease its violations of basic human rights.
Israel Is Caught in Chaos
Civil unrest has surged in Israel after the new far-right administration came into office. Anti-government chaotic protests have erupted in different cities of Israel, and police use water cannons and stun grenades to disperse protestors. The far-right Israeli government is trying to have greater control over the Supreme Court. The plan has triggered weeks of mass protests and seriously threatens democracy.
Netanyahu’s Government Is on the Verge of Collapse
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing criminal charges while his government plans to strengthen political control over the judiciary. Netanyahu’s administration is doomed to fall as protestors in Israel do not support his far-right government. His finance minister has called to wipe out a Palestinian village which was widely criticized worldwide. Netanyahu’s government is doomed to fall as protestors oppose his policies.
70-Year-Old Israel Faces Turmoil
The government of Israel, which has violated Palestinian rights over several decades, is now dealing with internal chaos. In 1917, the Balfour Declaration favoured the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine. The British had colonial control over Palestine until May 1948. On 14th May 1948, the British flag was lowered, and the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel was announced.
Illegal Settlements Displaced Palestinians
The proclamation fulfilled an old dream of Zionist diplomacy and settlement. However, it was a disaster for at least 750,000 Palestinians whom Israelis expelled from their homes and lands. The government of Israel has heavily built illegal settlements on Palestinian land for several decades. Israelis have continued oppression and discrimination against Palestinians and keep invading Palestinian villages.
UN Condemns Settlements
As Jewish immigration from Europe increased, the government of Israel needed more lands for settlement. Tel Aviv is one of the first settlements in the early 20th century. After the military assaults, the government of Israel constructed more payments over the ruins of Palestinian villages and towns. Settler attacks against Palestinian territories are regular incidents. The UN has always condemned Israeli settlements in Palestinian via resolutions and votes.
Amnesty Considers Israel as Apartheid Regime
The immigrant settlers have violated Palestinians’ rights and occupied their homes. They established a government and rejected any democratic freedom for the Palestinians to have political rights. The government of Israel constitutes a system of apartheid governing Palestinians. Amnesty International has warned about the Israelis committing the crime of apartheid under international law. The whole world must recognize that Israel is committing crimes against humanity.
Israel imposed restrictions on Palestinians’ freedom of movement and escalated its crackdown on Palestinians’ freedom of association. Amnesty International has warned that the government of Israel unlawfully kills and seriously injures Palestinian civilians. Israelis also torture and ill-treat Palestinian detainees. Israeli forces have kept demolishing Palestinian villages and towns and forcibly transferred their residents. The international community has failed to address the Israelis’ crimes against Palestinians.
Palestinians Are Deprived of All Rights
The government of Israel exercises control over Palestinians’ fundamental rights by segregation, oppression and domination. The dispossession and displacement of Palestinians from their homes is a major crime by the Israeli usurpers. The government of Israel evicts Palestinians from their homes by force to make way for Jewish settlers. Palestinians are constantly in a state of insecurity, while the cruel system of Israel has left them fragmented geographically and politically.
International Community Must Support Palestinians
The world must not watch what is happening in Palestine and let the government of Israel escape it. Palestinians have been struggling for their rights with little international support. Palestinian civilians have been suffering from military cruelty for several decades. Israeli forces are accused of cruel treatment and widespread abuse of Palestinians. The international community must not remain silent and re-evaluate its approach to Palestine and Israel.
Israel Pursues Judaization
Palestinians have endured countless crimes during the past seven decades, including ethnic cleansing and demographic changes. The government of Israel has made endless attempts to implement the project of Judaization of Jerusalem. Israeli settlers evict and demolish the homes of residents in Jerusalem. Israeli population increased in 2022 and 2021, primarily due to the immigration of Jews. Today the situation in Jerusalem remains fragile and unstable.
Israel Breaches Intl. Humanitarian Law
The government of Israel is displacing the local Palestinian population and settling its civilians. Israeli settlements contravene fundamental rules of international humanitarian law. Destruction of properties and occupation of land by the Israeli settlers breach the rules of international humanitarian law. Israeli settlement policy violates the norms of international law. Moreover, establishing settlements amounts to war crimes under the Rome Status of the International Criminal Court.
Settlements Violate Human Rights
Israel is a state party to numerous international human rights treaties. Consequently, as the occupying power, Israel is obliged to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of Palestinians. However, based on the documents by the UN, Amnesty International, and other NGOs, the Israeli settlement policy violates Palestinians’ human rights. It breaks the rights to liberty, security of people, and equal treatment before the law.
Israelis Are Violent
The Israeli settlement policy violates the right to life because Israeli forces unlawfully kill and injure many Palestinian civilians. It breaks the right to justice because Israel has failed to adequately investigate and enforce the law for acts of violence against Palestinians. Palestinians have multiple legal, financial, and procedural barriers to accessing the court system. Besides, Palestinians do not have the right to freedom of expression.
UN Warns about Settlements
The UN Security Council has expressed deep concern and dismay over Israeli settlement expansions. The UN Security Council has expressed concern over the continuing Israeli settlement activities. More construction by the government of Israel will further violate Palestinians’ human rights. Israelis always conduct deadly attacks and impose an institutionalized regime of oppression and domination against the Palestinian people.
Innocent Palestinians Are Detained
Israeli forces use military orders to suppress Palestinians by tear gas, rubber bullets, and live rounds. Israeli forces detain, kill, and injure Palestinian civilians, including young children. The government of Israel aims to ensure that Jewish Israelis maintain domination over Palestinians. Israelis indefinitely detain Palestinians without charge or trial based on the “classified information”. This policy is a colonial reality and a violation of human rights by The government of Israel.
Palestinian Children Need Support
The Palestinian Prisoner Support and Human Rights of Association Addameer reported in 2022 that 4,700 Palestinians are in Israeli prisons. The report said that 190 prisoners were children under 18 without being found guilty of any crime. Israel is the only state with a superior military juvenile court system globally. Palestinian children are vulnerable to various physical and psychological abuse by Israeli forces.
Silence Is a Crime
Palestinian children are the only children in the world systematically prosecuted through military rather than civilian courts. The government of Israel detains Palestinian children and treats them inhumanely by beating them and doing strip searches. Israelis’ violent policies directly affect the lives of Palestinian children, and the world must act to save them. Silence of the international community against Israelis’ savage behaviour is a crime against cruelty.
