Israel planting land mines at Syria Border to stop protesters


www.jpost.com

Anticipating protests following the Palestinian Authority’s declaration of statehood next month, the IDF has planted additional anti-personnel mines along the border on the Golan Heights that it hopes will prevent infiltrations into Israel.
The army experienced its first taste of the demonstrations on May 15, when more than 100 Palestinians from Syria crossed into the Israeli side of the Golan Heights.

According to Syrian and Lebanese reports at the time, more than a dozen protesters were killed

Wait...Did I read correctly? Israel USING LAND MINES against innocent Protesters? Weren't the use of Land mines banned by the Ottawa Treaty put forth by the UN in 1997?



The Ottawa Treaty or the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, otherwise known as the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction, is a treaty aimed at stopping the effects of anti-personnel landmines (AP-mines) around the world. As of August 2011, there were 156 States Parties to the treaty.

en.wikipedia.org...


Oh wait...I forgot, Israel hasn't signed it (refused to).
And by the way, do read the comments below in the article. You might find them quite sickening.

So while the world just sits and does nothing at the obvious Genocide and brutal force Israel is using against Palestinians and other people, The US government gives away $100 billion of tax payers money to these murderers. www.abovetopsecret.com...

I guess the saying is true. Either Israel destroys or gets destroyed - and the moment they have a free pass to do whatever they want because the UN and the US allows this.

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if these people still advocate Slavery...

Sure, let them. Then once those borders get moved at a future date, somebody steps on a landmine, or whatever reason in the future.

perhaps it could be one of your relatives in the far future?

One of the comments.. Just the amount of extremism in the world these days is incredible! Haven't we learned a damn think for our (recent) history?

Good that you found this.

The world voted to ban landmines in 2008:


""UNGA Resolution 63/42 was adopted on 2 December 2008 ""


War Crime.

Putting mines on their boarders is fine. But there is a problem when you put them on stolen land and land that is a UN demilitarized zone. Israel needs to be kicked out of the UN and sanctions placed on them.

Banned by whom, exactly? The UN? The UN has no authority to tell anyone to do anything. You can hem and haw all day long, but when it comes down to it, the UN is a toothless dog. All bark, no bite.

As for sanctions . . . laughable. When has sanctions ever worked?

Israel will protect its borders at all cost. They deeply and truly believe they are Gods chosen people. And they believe the saviour will come to that specific land. It is weird how people can be mind controlled by history stories written in books from the images of how they at the time the holy book was written either perceived or created a thought. Like the bible, all man written, quaran man written ECT..ect..
And apparently USA gov agrees with them, why? Oh there is a matter of strategic advantage, perhaps?

In defense for Israel, being the teeny tint country it is and being radical Islam will completely innialate non believers, Israel needs to do what ever possible to stop their enemies. I'm on the fence with this topic

ahh yes the ol straw man "celebration" crap..........you can take that line to another forum where its been beat to death and made obsolete.......

Explain radical islams policies BEFORE 9/11 and infact BEFORE the west was involved in their country that are STILL implemented to this day.....

You see they have a history of this, the west isnt to blame.........its doctrine......

........ill hold my breath.............

On the flip side, if all your neighbors were hostile and wanted to kill you, and your the small house on the block, id be taking some pretty hefty precautions myself
