[Michigan, May 9, 2023]:
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) condemns with the strongest terms the recent Israeli attack on Gaza. Thirteen Palestinians, including four children, were killed in cold blood. This senseless violence calls for immediate international intervention to end all forms of violence against the occupied Palestinians.
This Israeli barbaric attack shows once again what been an ongoing war against the Palestinians. When Israel is not bombing Gaza, it is subjecting it to a brutal siege. Gaza is an open-air prison that Israel bombs with impunity. This crime against humanity merits immediate international community action, intervention, protection and launching a war crime investigation.
AHRC warns that such Israeli crime serves as an open invitation for war escalation that could threaten the peace and stability in an already fragile region.
While the world’s attention is focused on Ukraine and other conflicts, Israel continues with its occupation and its war-crimes and brutal violence against the Palestinians. No one in a good conscience should find this acceptable.
The 75th Anniversary of the Palestinian Catastrophe “Al-Nakba” falls annually on May 15. While the catastrophe that befell the Palestinians in 1948 is rightly called a Nakba, the ongoing violence shows that the Nakba is an ongoing violence that takes all shapes and continues unabated.
As a strong believer in real and just peace, AHRC renews its call upon the Biden administration and the United Nations to act swiftly to end this war. AHRC demands moral consistency towards Palestinians and their legitimate right to be free of the Israeli occupation and attaining the basic rights that all other nations have.
“The road map for peace is clear, all that is needed is the political will of major powers especially the US,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “The Palestinians are human beings just like the Ukrainians are,” added Hamad. “We demand an end to the moral, political and diplomatic double standard on Palestine,” concluded Hamad.
