testified on the impact of weapons on reproductive health arising from theattacks in Gaza, especially to children. Israeli historian and socialist activistIlan Pappe gave a revealing account of the Zionists’ leadership strategy to ridthe Palestinians from their homeland since the 1940s.The meaning of genocide as designated acts committed with intent to destroyin whole or in part a national, ethical, racial or religious group such as killingmembers of the group, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated tobring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, imposing measuresintended to prevent births within the group, forcibly transferring children of thegroup to another group.The Tribunal agreed with the prosecution’s argument that allegations inrelation to the charge of genocide against Israel be placed in a more generalhistorical context and the precedent for such an approach is in the ICJ Advisory Opinion on the Construction of a Wall. That since 1948, there hasbeen further massacres against Palestinians by or with the cooperation of Israelis forces, including against Palestinian refugees in the Lebaneserefugees camp of Sabra and Shatila in 1982, and in Jenin and Nablus in 2002.He further submitted that three-week Operation Cast Lead, which killed 1,400Palestinians including 300 children and hundreds of unarmed civilians, was anattack that was meticulously planned for six months. Large areas were razedand thousand were made homeless, the economy completely ruined.The prosecution added that the destruction had cumulative effects of culturaland religious destruction, renaming villages and destruction of places of worship, troubled economic and physical effects, severe restricted freedom of movement, scarcity and control of water, adverse conditions of life and theimpact of the 2006 attacks and the usage of White phosphorus ammunitions in2009 on the reproductive health of the Gaza population. Basically, the harshconditions of life were deliberately inflicting to destroy a group and the acts areequivalent to those of war with a genocidal intent.The prosecution had shown beyond reasonable doubt that Israel is guilty of the crime of genocide under the Genocide Convention and the KL War CrimesCharter.The Tribunal was not with the Amicus Curiae on the argument that is no caseto answer based on the argument that a State cannot be charged for criminal

liability without the State having submitted to the jurisdiction of the tribunalsince States have sovereign immunity.The Tribunal found that absolute immunity is an antiquated doctrine and isinclined to break free from this restriction. The Tribunal rejects absoluteimmunity for genocide and war crimes, as there is no equitable application of the law. Weak nations are victimised by powerful nations with impunity. TheTribunal further found that the force employed by IDF is excessive, totallydisproportionate and a violation of international law. The methods used areunspeakably inhumane and amount to war crime.The Tribunal found that The Kahan Report clearly shows that the IsraeliDefence Force (IDF) was in control at the relevant time of the Sabra andShatilla Massacre in September 1982 and Yaron was the commanding officer in charge of the forces entering in and out of the area. He had controlled andpermitted the Phalangists to carry out the massacre that went for days.The Tribunal found that there was a long catalogue of acts since 1948 to datethat are a repeated pattern against the Palestinian people, from expulsion,killing, brutal attacks with powerful weapons and other actions as shown in thetrial. An unbearable condition of life has been imposed on an entirepopulation. It is incredible that in an age of human rights, such atrocities cancontinue to rage for more than 6 decades and that there are people in nationswho trivialise such inhumanity. The Tribunal unanimously holds that the actscommitted against the Palestinians amount to genocide over the last 67 years.The Tribunal orders that reparations commensurate with the irreparable harmand injury, pain and suffering undergone by the complainant war crimesvictims be paid to them. Though the tribunal is a tribunal of conscience with noreal power of enforcement, the tribunal finds that the witnesses are entitled exustitia to the payment of reparations by the two convicted parties. The tribunalhopes that the witnesses armed with the findings of the tribunal will, in thenear future, find a state or an international judicial entity able and willing toexercise jurisdiction and enforce the verdict of this Tribunal. The tribunal’saward of reparations will be submitted to the War Crimes Commission tofacilitate the determination and collection of reparations by the ComplainantWar Crime Victims.President Lamin further read, “As a tribunal of conscience, the Tribunal is fullyaware that its verdict is merely declaratory in nature. The tribunal has nopower of enforcement. What we can do under Article 34 of Chapter VIII of Part
