Petition 4PalKids to Put IDF on the UN “list”
URGENT! Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon: Include Israel’s army on the UN list of serious violators of children’s rights
70 years of occupation, ethnic cleansing, and unspeakable wars have led only to a shrinking Palestine and an oppressed unarmed population. But it is the Palestinian children who suffer the most due to being systematically targeted by the Israeli military.
- 700-1000 Palestinian children every year face arrest, interrogation, torture, detention and imprisonment for alleged crimes including throwing stones at Israeli soldiers. Resisting one’s occupier is permissible under international law and yet Israel and the world see that as criminal and deserving of punishment.
- 2,587 Palestinian children have been killed since 2000 by the Israeli forces
- 21,737 Palestinian children have been injured since 2000 by the Israeli forces
- 1,392 Palestinian children have been permanently disabled since 2000 by the Israeli forces
Nothing is going to change unless international bodies recognize these crimes and take international and legal positions on these concerns. Ban Ki-Moon must not be intimidated or any other UN representative from doing their work, especially with concern to children and issues related to armed conflict.
This listing with the Israeli forces on it, would propel Israel further towards pariah status within international bodies and could lead to UN sanctions which are at this point, after seventy years of denial, oppression and slow genocide, all the people of Palestine have to stop these crimes against humanity.
Please sign below. We will hand deliver these signatures to Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on May 7, 2015 to assist him in his decision to put Israel on #theUNlist of violators of children under armed conflict. Do it 4PalKids. #4PalKids
