A prophetic word on Gaza from Dr Ralph Wilde

I must say that I find it deeply encouraging simply to see an Englishman like Doctor Wilde addressing the atrocities in Palestine on behalf of the Arab League. It is a great reminder that this is not an ethnic issue but is an issue of fundamental human rights. One can only hope that this man’s good sense and simple logic penetrates some of the false narratives that have been constructed worldwide to justify the IDF’s program of genocide against the people of Gaza.

Dr. Ralph Wilde is a member of the Faculty of Laws at University College London. He is currently engaged in an interdisciplinary research project, funded by the European Research Council, on the extraterritorial application of international human rights law, called ‘human rights beyond borders’

If you’d like to read a more thorough commentary on Dr Wilde’s address, I recommend Steven Sahiounie’s excellent article, A Palestinian legal masterpiece by Dr. Ralph Wilde at the ICJ.

Please read and sign the following petition that condemns an extremist Christian zionist initiative calling for the removal of Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, replacing them with the Third Temple.  This is an old Christian zionist project being recycled by extremist Jewish and CHristian zionist organizations, many based in the United States and Jerusalem.  Please spread this petition far and wide as anyone can sign it and utilize the petition as a means of educating educating people about the dangers of these violent and extreme projects that will only inspire more violence in an already lethal crisis in Gaza, E. Jerusalem and the West Bank.
