"Charges of war crimes are now being leveled—and justifiably so—at the Israelis, many of whom themselves come from families that suffered in the hands of the Nazis over 60 years ago and now claim that the Holocaust was the only tragedy—as if the far more numerous deaths of goyim throughout the world after 1945 count for nothing..."
World sentiment is growing that the state of Israel has knowingly committed atrocious war crimes against Palestinian children and civilians. The reason for the war crimes and child murder that Israel gives in the blogosphere and press demeans and dishonors the victims of anti-Jewish crime. The general excuse that charges against Israel are based on anti-Semitism are not only baseless but toy with the horror and terror that many residents of Israel have known first hand or through family in the past. Such excuses are dangerous and exploit one holocaust for another.
European attorneys in Belgian have petitioned courts to arrest Israel's Foreign Minister. The action is seen as the first of many in response to war crimes committed in the Gaza Strip.

It's been about time that the Israeli's had the anti-semite card away; they abused that right by doing the same things that were done to their own people. It's funny; I'm the only outspoken one of my friends and work mates, so whenever I do speak about these atrocities people gawk as if to say...'wow...you're like a nazi too', at least the Israeli sheeple that can't seem to understand anything other than what the news says.

 Depriving a prisoner of war of a fair trial
 Unlawful deportation, confinement or transfer
 Taking hostages
2. The following acts as part of an international conflict:
 Directing attacks against civilians
 Directing attacks against humanitarian workers or UN peacekeepers
 Killing a surrendered combatant
 Misusing a flag of truce
 Settlement of occupied territory
 Deportation of inhabitants of occupied territory
 Using poison weapons

On July 1, 2002, the International Criminal Court, a treaty-based court located in The Hague, came into being for the prosecution of war crimes committed on or after that date. However, several nations, most notably the United States, China, and Israel, have criticized the court and refuse to participate in it or to permit the court to have jurisdiction over their citizens. Note, however, that a citizen of one of the 'objector nations' could still find himself before the Court if he were accused of committing war crimes in a country that was a state party, regardless of the fact that their country of origin was not a signatory.
