Trials for war crimes, are processes of people accused of committing violations of the laws, customs and general principles of the law of war. After World War II, the term referred mainly to the trials against the German and Japanese leaders in courts established by the allied states.
In the same way that these people were tried, Israeli leaders and soldiers should be brought to trial without excepcion.
The most important processes took place in Nuremberg (Germany). They were clothed with authority by two instruments: the London Agreement (signed on August 8, 1945 by the representatives of the United States, United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union) and the so-called Law No. 10 (promulgated by the Allied Council in Berlin, the December 20, 1945).
The London Agreement provided for the establishment of an International Military Tribunal, composed of a judge and a substitute for each of the signatory states to prosecute war crimes. These were classified into three groups: crimes against peace (consisting of planning, initiation and development of the war), war crimes (violations of the laws of war contained in the Vienna Convention and recognized by the armies of the civilized) nations and crimes against humanity (such as the extermination of ethnic or religious groups, and other atrocities committed against the civilian population).
The trials of Nurembergand Tokyo were a major step in the evolution of international criminal law.His credibility would have been greater if the procedures had not been carried out exclusively under the auspicesof the countries that had won the war, leaving only national courts were Germany and Japan.However,the principles applied at Nuremberg and Tokyo have collaborated to strengthen international law and its mechanisms.
The course of historical events made in the 1990 figure of international tribunals to recover prosecute war crimes. Thus, the United Nations (UN) established two international criminal tribunals, based in The Hague (Netherlands) and Arusha (Tanzania), to judge, respectively, for war crimes committed during the war in former Yugoslavia and genocide occurred in Rwanda during the ethnic conflict between Tutsis and Hutus that has characterized the aforementioned decade.
We the people, we hope that international tribunals, trials carried Israelis responsible for this genocide. There is no damage can never be repaired.
Killing more than 1,000 Palestinians in three weeks, hundreds of them children, and wounding thousands more, to prevent a threat of rockets did not kill or hurt anyone in Israel during the six months when the truce was declared by both sides, or even before Israel launched its attack on 27 December, is so disproportionate as to be intolerable under any ethical system asserting that Palestinian lives are equal in value to Israeli lives.
We The People, we hope the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, Barack Obama or whoever, no longer arming Israeli terrorists.
