HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL DECIDES TO DISPATCH FACT-FINDING MISSION

 

Human Rights Council 
MORNING  12 January 2009


The Human Rights Council this morning concluded its ninth Special Session on the grave violations of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including the recent aggression of the occupied Gaza Strip, and adopted a resolution in which it strongly condemned the ongoing Israeli military operation in Gaza, which had resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people, and demanded the occupying power, Israel, to immediately withdraw its military forces from Gaza. The Council also decided to dispatch an urgent independent international fact-finding mission to investigate all violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law by the occupying power against the Palestinian people throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

Also speaking as a concerned country, Palestine said concern at the events in Gaza Strip could not help but be voiced, in particular with regards to the suffering of the Palestinian people and their terror and despair, which could not be accepted. Palestine could not accept expressions of concern when there were more than 4,000 wounded, and more than 800 martyrs, more than half of which were women and children. Palestine could not accept words of concern when talking about civilians who were falling. The barbaric acts of aggression required a call for the establishment of a fact-finding mission to investigate the Israeli slaughters and acts of terror.

The tenth regular session of the Human Rights Council will be held from 2 to 27 March 2009.

The result of the vote was as follows: 

In favour (33):Angola, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Chile, China, Cuba, Djibouti, Egypt, Gabon, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa, Uruguay, and Zambia.

Against (1):Canada.

Abstentions (13): Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cameroon, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Republic of Korea, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Ukraine, and United Kingdom.

Aziza, thanks so much for caring about The Palestinians while the rest of the world either silently watches or "strongly condemns".  I hope that more of our friends would think about giving a voice to their fears and concern because what is happening in Gaza now can happen anywhere in the world and nobody will care!
Signing will cost us nothing but war costs children parts of their bodies, their lives and also their families.

 

This is my attitude. I can not remain silent. I received a letter from my friend Muhammad. The journalists could not enter the Gaza Strip. Now we are journalists. We can not keep silent! 

MY DEAR FRIEND I AM AGAINST ANY TYPES OF WAR, TERRORISM, BARBARIC ACTS. I WANT TO SEE ONLY PEACE  IN ENTIRE WORLD, I WANT TO SEE HUMANISM EVERYWHERE. IF WE ARE REAL HUMAN THEN WE NEVER LIKE ANY TYPES OF WAR, TERRORISM, BARBARIC ACTS. I APPRECIATE YOUR ACT AND BEHAVIOUR. YOU ARE REALLY A VERY  NICE FRIEND. LIVE AND LET LIVE IS BEST POLICY  FOR ENTIRE WORLD. IN INDIA WE SAY VASUDHAIV KUTUMBKAM IT MEAN ENTIRE WORLD IS A BIG FAMILY. WE ARE HUMAN WE ARE NOT A JUNGLES ANIMAL.

no war

Shame on Israel and respect to Palestine. Shame on all of us, who silently watches this unimaginable hypocrisy from the side of Israel has been taking place for many years now. No wonder that the whole world pays the price for the years of ignorance, when not a single word was said against lies and crimes has been taking place in Vietnam, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq and again Palestine... May Allah be with you, brothers and sisters.
