Denying the real motivation for Islamist terrorism
Written by Brooke Goldstein
Sunday, February 08, 2015

Islamists are winning their war to silence critical commentary in the West about Islam. So says Flemming Rose, culture editor of the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which originally published the now-infamous images of Muhammad, in his recent book, “The Tyranny of Silence.”

Whether motivated by a cowardly nature or by an obsequious desire to be nice, much of the media and the Obama administration now adhere to a common vocabulary when discussing violence motivated by Islamist theology. There is simply no reference to the theological motivations so relevant to the perpetrators of religiously inspired terror.

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.

International Criminal Court politicizes itself by accepting the legal fiction of Palestinian statehood

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).
