UN Slowly Moves To Imposing Sanctions On Israel Over Palestine Occupation

The United Nations must “review Israel’s status as a law-abiding member of the United Nations”, UN Human Rights Council special investigator Michael Lynk said on October 26.

Lynk spoke at a press conference in New York in advance of his presentation to the Third Committee on October 27 in which he outlined violence and lack of accountability, collective punishment and forcible transfers, and the denial of right to development as the chief violations of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel.

He proposed a UN General Assembly resolution that asked the International Court of Justice at The Hague to issue an advisory opinion on whether Israel’s occupation was illegal, as the difference between a legal and an illegal occupation defines the sanction tools that the UN could use against it.

“Now we regard Israel as the lawful occupant of the Palestinian territories, albeit with a range illegal features to it,” Lynk said. “If we now change that from being a lawful occupant to an illegal occupant, that raises the pressure on what the international community would now be obliged to do under its [new] obligation on non-cooperation with Israel in the continuation.”

Such a declaration is unusual, but was done in 1971 when the International Court of Justice issued an advisory opinion that South Africa’s administration of Namibia was illegal, Lynk said.

Should Israel’s occupation be declared unlawful, then the UN could consider making use of the Uniting for Peace resolution, which could give the UN General Assembly the power to sanction Israel. Such a move would isolate Israel internationally by way of forcing it to end its “occupation” of Palestinian territories, Lynk said

“Israel is not North Korea,” in that its economy is dependent on international trade, particularly the US and Europe, Lynk said. This fact can empower the global community to force change, he added.

    They will be labeled as anti-Semite and Israel-hater and their careers destroyed.
    Shouldn’t the US leave the UN because of the UN’s “unfair” and “Biased” behaviour against Israel?

    Apparently nothing scares the illegal entity more than BDS, to the point it’s being made illegal in the US. Even in Texas hurricane-related reliefs are provided only if the victim signs a declaration of opposing the BDS.

    I’d say BDS is working and the S in it is not even related to the UN.

    Lets just see how this farce goes…Israel may have international trade, but if the US and other countries dropped their welfare (blackmail) payments, they’d sink like a rock raft.

    Isn’t this about 50 years late?
    This should have happened at least back in the 1960’s.
    Well if now is the time then now is the time.
    Everyone jump on board now and spread the world that Israel is being boycotted for committing genocides against humanity.

      It should have happened in 1948 when the colons conquered Palestine and made its biggest mass- deportations and genocides.

      whhaaaaaaa. we tried to annihilate Israel in aggressive wars and we lost, so lets cry about it. Poor us

  • John Mason

    Lynk may have just signed his own death warrant. Mossad will be onto him or CIA etc. Car accident seems to be the norm.
    Brave man.

    This could be a helpful step towards creating a Jew free planet. For use with outlawing Judaism, delisting Israel from UN membership and replacing it with Palestine. To get rid of the Jew baby rapers once and for all.

    “Terrorism and other illegal activities
    In a 2004 congressional testimony, John S. Pistole, Executive Assistant Director for Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) described the JDL as “a known violent extremist Jewish organization.”[100] FBI statistics show that, from 1980 through 1985, there were 18 officially classified terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed by Jews; 15 of those by members of the JDL.[30] According to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs,[101]
    In a 1986 study of domestic terrorism, the Department of Energy concluded: “For more than a decade, the Jewish Defense League (JDL) has been one of the most active terrorist groups in the United States. […] Since 1968, JDL operations have killed 7 persons and wounded at least 22. Thirty-nine percent of the targets were connected with the Soviet Union; 9 percent were Palestinian; 8 percent were Lebanese; 6 percent, Egyptian; 4 percent, French, Iranian, and Iraqi; 1 percent, Polish and German; and 23 percent were not connected with any states. Sixty-two percent of all JDL actions are directed against property; 30 percent against businesses; 4 percent against academics and academic institutions; and 2 percent against religious targets.” (Department of Energy, Terrorism in the United States and the Potential Threat to Nuclear Facilities, R-3351-DOE, January 1986, pp. 11–16)
    In its report, Terrorism 2000/2001, the FBI referred to the JDL as a “violent extremist Jewish organization” and stated that the FBI was responsible for thwarting at least one of its terrorist acts.[102] The National Consortium for the Study of Terror and Responses to Terrorism states that, during the JDL’s first two decades of activity, it was an “active terrorist organization.”[6] The JDL was specifically referenced by the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence, John S. Pistole, in his formal report before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States.[6]”

      “9-11/Israel did it” …

      Cover Up

      9/11 Investigation in Zionist Hands

      Immediately following the 11 September attacks, the Zionist network was methodically maneuvering behind the scenes to quash any legitimate investigation that might reveal what really happened that day. They made it their goal to control any and all angles of so called “investigation” so that they could quickly cover up any and all evidence pointing to Zionist involvement

      All appointed chief judges were Zionist Jews:

      Alvin K. Hellerstein – a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and has been involved in several high-profile 9/11 related cases including consolidated master case against three airlines, ICTS International NV and Pinkerton’s airport security firms, the World Trade Center owners, and Boeing Co., the aircraft manufacturer. Hellerstein is a dedicated Zionist and Israeli nationalist who has ties to the Jewish mafia dating back to 1956. Hellerstein’s wife is a former senior officer & current treasurer of AMIT. From its website it states: “Founded in 1925, AMIT is the world’s leading supporter of religious Zionist education and social services for Israel’s children and youth, nurturing and educating Israeli children to become productive, contributing members of society.”

      Michael B. Mukasey – This Orthodox Jewish judge oversaw the litigation between Larry Silverstein and insurance companies after 9/11. Silverstein was awarded billions. Mukasey prevented full inquiry into the Five Dancing Israelis incident who were arrested in connection with 9/11. He played a role in their release. He was later appointed attorney general by President Bush. He defended the patriot act, and he supports torture policies.

      Michael Chertoff – In charge of the Criminal Division in the Justice Department on 9/11. Essentially responsible for the 9/11 NON-investigation. He let hundreds of Israeli spies who were arrested prior to and on 9/11 go back home to Israel. He was also a prosecuting judge in the first terrorist attack on the WTC in 1993. Chertoff purportedly holds dual citizenship with the US and Israel. His family is one of the founding families of the state of Israel and his mother was one of the first ever agents of the Mossad, Israel’s spy agency. His father and uncle are ordained rabbis and teachers of the Talmud.

      Kenneth Feinberg – set up the victim’s compensation fund ($7 billion); controlled by a Zionist cabal, it managed to get 97% of the victims’ families to take money in exchange for dropping demands a legal investigation of 9/11.

      Sheila Birnbaum – Another key Zionist involved in the cover-up of 9/11 is Sheila Birnbaum of Skaddan, Arps law firm. Birnbaum was appointed ‘special mediator’ of the legal suits filed by the 3% of families who decided not to be bought off. Nothing of significance has happened with these claims since.

      Benjamin Chertoff – (cousin of Michael Chertoff) – Ben wrote the 9/11 hit piece in Popular Mechanics claiming to “debunk 9/11 conspiracy theories”. His use of ridiculous straw-man arguments largely discredits the piece though it is still widely quoted by defenders of ‘the official narrative’. He claims his relation to Michael Chertoff is “distant” but Chris Bollyn proves otherwise.

      Stephen Cauffman – Leader of NIST investigations which in total amount to a systematic coverup of the WTC 7 collapse. The NIST position remains that fire, together with minor damage caused by ‘ejected debris’ from the collapse of the North Tower situated a block away with WTC building 8 in between, brought down WTC building 7.

      9/11 Commission: Zionist controlled

      Philip Zelikow (Dual Citizen US / Israel) – 9/11 Commission Gatekeeper
      Zelikow was appointed the executive director of the 9/11 commission – the most powerful position of the committee. This Zionist Jew is responsible for concocting the contrived fiction that was presented as the 9/11 Commission Report – official narrative. The report contains hundreds of glaring anomalies, contradictions, omissions and downright falsehoods. It even manages to omit any reference at all to the collapse of Building 7 at 5:20 pm.”

    Not going to happen. And the US still has veto power for everything including sending the resolution to the UNSC to be able to enforce it, which will be VETOED.
