Prosecuting Israel’s crimes: a moving snowball that can’t be stopped ~ Adri Nieuwhof , THE ELECTRONIC INTIFADA, Tue, 01/06/2015.
The prominent human rights advocate Shawan Jabarin suggests that the decision is like a moving snowball that “can’t be stopped.” Although Israel has been granted impunity by Western governments for decades, there is now a real possibility of bringing Israeli war criminals to justice.
Jabarin leads the Palestinian organizationAl-Haq in Ramallah. He has suffered directly from Israel’s human rights abuses. Previously held in administrative detention — imprisonment without charge or trial — Jabarin was subjected to a travel banimposed by Israel based on “secret evidence” from 2006 until March 2012.
