Time For Truth: (BBC News) – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas 'was KGB agent'
Former Dutch prime minister Dries van Agt has described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a war criminal who should be tried in the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
His comments come ahead of Mr Netanyahu’s visit to The Netherlands this week.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering an offer by Russian President Vladimir Putin to host talks in Moscow between him and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Netanyahu’s office said on Monday.
An Israeli cop has been suspended after a heartbreaking video was posted online showing two officers terrorize an innocent 8-year-old Palestinian girl.
The video, which was taken last week and surfaced on Tuesday, shows two Israeli border officers confronting a terrified 8-year-old Palestinian girl, Anwar Burqan, on Hebron’s al-Ibrahimi St., demanding she stop on the roadside. When the first officer confronts the girl he stomps on her bike and berates her until she runs away screaming and crying.
41 nations voted for the measure, including Germany, France, Japan, Brazil, China, and more. Just five nations abstained—the most high-profile of which was India, which is presently run by a right-wing Hindu nationalist government that spends billions on Israeli weapons.
This vote came just weeks after the release of the UN Human Rights Council report on the 2014 Gaza war, which documents possible war crimes by Israel, including the deliberate targeting of besieged Palestinian civilians.
