RHR Response to the UN’s Report on Operation Protective Edge

No Comments 24 June 2015

PRESS RELEASE | JULY 24 2015

The report of the United Nation’s Human Rights Council on the warfare during Operation Protective Edge is a reminder of the opportunity missed by the Israeli governments – the absence of an independent Israeli investigations committee.   An independent investigation committee – transparent, critical and willing to take risks-  tasked with examining  if and when we  failed in to meet our own moral standards during the fighting this past summer would have helped us improve our own moral character. Unfortunately,  we are unable to see in Israel’s Foreign Ministry’s report on the fighting a product of such an investigation.   Continue Reading

 PRESS RELEASE | MAY 5 2015

Israeli state pushes court to take unusual step threatening immediate demolition of entire Palestinian village 

The entire Palestinian village of Susya is in danger of demolition and expulsion. By refusing to issue an interim order preventing preemptive demolitions before their case is heard, the Israeli High Court is allowing for the demolition of the entire Palestinian village of Susya and subsequent expulsion of its 340 residents.
