“ICJP [International Centre for Justice for Palestinians] director warns ‘justice is coming’ over complicity in Israeli war crimes: Senior lawyer says ‘ink is almost dry’ on the guilt of many MPs who have enabled and covered Israel’s atrocities”

by Skwawkbox @skwawkbox

@palestine @israel

“Tayab Ali, a partner in , one of the world’s leading human rights law firms, and a director of the International Centre for Justice for Palestinians () published his stark warning on Twitter/X this evening, telling MPs who have supported and enabled Israel’s atrocities against the people of Gaza that it is now too late for them to do much to avoid their guilt and complicity, because ‘the ink of history on your potential complicity is almost dry and you already made your decision’ – and that ICJP will be demanding personal legal accountability for guilty MPs”

@GeriatricGardener @skwawkbox @palestine @israel The question remains can individual MPs, officials and leaders be held personally accountable. I think that Nuremberg settled this issue. They should and must be held accountable. These same political parties enabled, supported an funded what had happened in South Africa during Apartheid, their excuse then was communism.

This is the most extreme form of denial. Not only is the State of Florida, perhaps more vulnerable to climate change than any other state, pretending that climate change doesn't exist, but it's deleting any reference to it in state law. This is truly putting your head in the sand.

@petergleick A few years ago Zimbabwe was plagued by hyperinflation, the response by government of that nation was to ban "inflation". To say the least it did not go down well. Economic rationality won the day but not after much harm and suffering. The state of Florida will not win this one. The voters and their idiotic political class will reap the economic and social consequences of Climate Change. You do not have long to wait for this case study in political hubris to come to fruition
