PETITION TO REMOVE THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FROM M. SHIMON PEREZ: REGARDED AS A WAR CRIMINAL AND SPONSOR OF GENOCIDE AGAINST HUMANITY IN THE GAZA STRIP
We the signatories … … … … …, claiming to be outraged by the attitude of Shimon Perez regarding the war of genocide and ethnic cleansing that the Palestinian people in Gaza Strip endure
Under the name “Operation Cast Lead, Israel launched a military operation against civilians in Gaza who are already living a total blockade (land, sea and air) imposed by the Jewish state from eighteen months. The IDF has used American fighter aircraft F16, Apache helicopters, and shelling from warships, to sow terror and destruction of homes, clinics, mosques, universities, schools, police posts and administrations, in short all the infrastructure already in bad shape and are nevertheless used by the population of Gaza to alleviate the blockade.
Mr. Maxwel Galford, the spokesman of the Special Rapporteur of the UN in charge of the peace agreements in the Middle East said: “In Gaza, life for children and families has become a matter of life or death.” The raid by Israeli aircraft on the camp of Jabalia, has shown an extreme atrocity by the murder of the family “Baâloucha” composed of five sisters who were murdered in their sleep (17 years Tahrir, Ikram 14 years, 12 years old Samar Dina 8 years Jouaher 4 years).
In the Gaza Strip, ambulances are unable to rescue the wounded throughout the territory. In a statement Mr. Jacob Klinberger, the president of the International Committee of the Red Cross said “we saw the wounded who have not survived their injuries because ambulances are prevented from arriving on time. If it ( Israel) does not respect the rules laid down by international humanitarian law, death is simply be pure fate of several people when we could help”. 8 / 01 / 2009.
The Secretary General of United Nations Ban Ki Moon has called for its part, “what is happening in Gaza, the terror and bloodshed” (SG/SM/12025), he called on Israel to a cease-fire and implementation of international law and conventions of human rights.
In his statement (on the EL-Jazeera television) on 9/01/2009, Mr. Berg Fory, a member of the Nobel Committee for Peace, said that the Nobel committee members are ashamed to have awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace to the Israeli President Shimon Perez, especially after watching the Israeli massacres committed against children, women and elderly innocent in the Gaza Strip.
Perez was primarily responsible for the massacre of Qana in southern Lebanon in 1996. This massacre after Operation Grapes of Wrath by the Israeli air force has caused the death of over a hundred civilians, mostly children and women. The shelter in Qana that was bombed, is one of the shelters run by the United Nations, which had housed more than a hundred Lebanese. Mr. Perez was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize along with the Premier of Israel Isaac Rabin and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat.
It is to preserve the essence of peace in the world especially in the Middle East, in solidarity with what is happening in Gaza and against the crimes against humanity that are perpetrated on site:
We ask the Nobel committee and the Norwegian government to withdraw the Nobel Peace Prize to Mr. Shimon Perez, current president of Israel for its crimes against humanity.
