International Criminal Court politicizes itself by accepting the legal fiction of Palestinian statehood
Thursday, January 22, 2015
PDF Print E-mail

The Lawfare Project is deeply concerned with the recent decision by the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to open a preliminary examination into the "situation in Palestine," which follows Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's signing of the ICC's Rome Statute earlier this month.

During the inquiry, the Prosecutor will evaluate "issues of jurisdiction, admissibility and the interests of justice" in determining whether to launch an investigation into alleged crimes committed in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza. Because Abbas recognized the ICC's jurisdiction retroactively, the Prosecutor could investigate last summer's conflict between Israel and designated foreign terrorist organization Hamas (see The Lawfare Project's analysis of war crimes and other violations of international law committed by Hamas).

Secretary of Transportation Justifies Airline's Unlawful Discriminatory Practice Against Israelis
PDF Print E-mail

Lawfare—often manifested in the form of illegitimate, frivolous lawsuits filed solely to intimidate—also entails the failure to apply existing law to protect fundamental human and civil rights. Among these is the right to equal protection and freedom from discriminatory treatment, guaranteed by numerous state and federal statutes prohibiting discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, sex, and other specified classes.

In late 2013, a formal complaint was filed with the U.S. Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) alleging illegal discrimination by Kuwait Airways (KA) on the basis of national origin, in violation of federal law proscribing such discrimination by air carriers. The complaint concerned the airline's refusal to transport Israeli nationals on nonstop flights from New York to London. KA's bigoted policy is readily apparent: to purchase tickets through the airline's website, the passenger must select his or her nationality from a drop-down list of countries, as well as the passport issuing country. Israel is absent from these drop-downs and, consequently, Israeli nationals cannot buy tickets.

Hamas's Violations of International Law
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Today, The Lawfare Project published an overview of Hamas's violations of international law, primarily during the recent war in Gaza.


The document focuses on Hamas's violations of customary international humanitarian law (CIHL), Rule 156 of which provides that "[s]erious violations of international humanitarian law constitute war crimes." As neither Israel nor the Palestinians are parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the UN Security Council should refer the situation to the ICC Prosecutor for investigation.

The Lawfare Project encourages widespread dissemination of the linked document, which may serve as talking points and to otherwise counter the disproportionate and inaccurate focus on Israel's wartime conduct.
 
CAIR and Lawfare: An Interview with Brooke Goldstein
Written by New English Review

PDF Print E-mail

The month of April witnessed the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) attacking free speech in films and in academia. CAIR, a self-styled Muslim civil rights group, grew out of a support network for Hamas, a terrorist group designated by our State Department.  It was one of several Muslim Brotherhood linked groups listed as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas,Texas. CAIR and the other groups were found to have funneled tens of millions in funds  to Hamas. As the month began a CAIR spokesperson attacked the Clarion Project film, the Honor Diaries, which portrays a group of both Muslim and non-Muslim women addressing the problems of misogyny in Muslim majority countries with honor-shame cultures. These cultures follow Islamic doctrine devaluing the rights of women, condoning child and forced marriages, female genital mutilation and violence against women including honor killings. CAIR singled out the film’s executive producer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, former Somali Dutch politician, now an American citizen and acclaimed author of best sellers Infidel and Nomad. Ms. Ali is a fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, a member of The Future of Diplomacy Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. As a girl she was subjected to female genital mutilation and as young woman, escaped from an arranged marriage. Ali, an apostate from Islam, was called an Islamophobe by CAIR. A term which an official of the Runnymede Trust in the UK admitted has no legal definition at a 2013 Warsaw Conference of the Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe.
