Game to mislead International Court of Justice

By Afshain Afzal

In the latest development, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) along with some foreign troops dropped several bombs at Gaza's biggest hospital, “Al Shifa Hospital”. Continuing aerial bombardment and ground raids have been underway since yesterday when the last reports came in. Surprisingly, Washington and Tel Aviv, despite intense bombing and military operations have allowed the media to give coverage of Gaza. One wonders how these media persons got inside war zone without fear. US claims that it shared confirmed intelligence input with the IDF and agencies about the presence of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad members inside the hospital.

The Israeli–American plot, although exposed beforehand is soon going to unfold a success story of the recovery of the Israeli hostages and the killing of their abductors. Interestingly, they themselves kidnapped Israelis and some foreigners and would also be freeing them from their own custody. Hamas did capture some POWs during house-to-house searches and combing operations but that is a separate venture. It is on record that Hamas did not kidnap even a single person from the dance and music festival at Kibbutz Re’im nor did they launch 7th October attack on Israel. No doubt, all this is being done to present it as evidence for the International Court of Justice.

Meanwhile, yesterday on 14 November 2023, the International Court of Justice, Hague took an attempt to give an advisory opinion regarding “Legal consequences arising from the Policies and Practices of Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem. The International Court is supposed to give an opinion, “What are the legal consequences arising from the ongoing violation by Israel of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, from its prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, and from its adoption of related discriminatory legislation and measures.

The International Court also worked to establish, how do the policies and practices of Israel referred to in paragraph 18 (a) above affect the legal status of the occupation, and what are the legal consequences that arise for all States and the United Nations from this status?” Fourteen written comments were filed by 25 October and Pakistan was allowed to submit on 2 November 2023. Now the public hearings on the request for an advisory opinion are scheduled to open on 19 February 2024.

In fact, it is a well-chalked-out stunt to further misguide the world and prevent hateful feelings amongst the Arabs and Muslims leading to disallowing US Agency for International Development (USAID) and other similar organizations to operate in their countries, a strange drama has been staged where, ironically, the US State Department and USAID are campaigning against their President. Signed by 100 State Department and USAID employees wrote a dissent memo accusing President Joseph Biden of spreading misinformation in his remarks on 10 October 2023, about the Palestinian group Hamas' October 7th attack on Israel. The unethical and illegal misadventure by US-Israel State-sponsored terrorism, killing many people and turning others homeless is too harsh to digest.

The UN, International humanitarian organizations, and peace-loving nations must take urgent measures to bring an immediate end to the Israeli bombardment and drama of the siege of Gaza to place fake evidence against orthodox Palestinian Muslims before the world community.
