🧵1/ This thread is about a trend advocating for preventing Omar al-Bashir, wanted for crimes against humanity, from being sent to the ICC. It's a fantastic example of how artificially amplified and manipulated trends pretend to be grassroots sentiment #Disinformation #Sudan
2/ firstly, this shouldn't be taken lightly. The warrants against al-Bashir include the worst charges, from extermination, torture, and intentional targeting of civilians. Up to 500,000 are thought to have been killed as a result of the Darfur genocide (although figures vary).
3/ The trend translates as 'Surrending al-Bashir is an insult to Sudan'. It started trending on the evening of the 11th August. Then, @sabqorg an Arabic newspaper, ran a story about the trend saying it reflected 'popular (Gulf) outrage' about al-Bashir's plight #disinformation

A thread on nuance...
Many things can be true...
1. Israel’s attacks on Palestinians are racist.
2. Israel’s occupation of the West Bank is colonialist.
3. Israel’s treatment of its Arab citizens and of Palestinians in the occupied territories is unequal to its treatment of Jews
and is akin to Apartheid.
4. Hamas is not a bastion of democracy and human rights.
5. Hamas often exacerbates tensions among Palestinian leadership.
6. Hamas’ rocket attacks displaced attention away from the ethnic cleansing taking place in East Jerusalem.
7. The US’s
unconditional military support for Israel despite clear human rights abuses is hypocritical and unacceptable.
8. Solidarity with Palestinians is not an invitation to vicious anti-Semitism.
9. The wave of attacks on Jews in Canada, London, France, Berlin that took place on the

La colonizzazione -illegale- israeliana procede a passo di carica e impunita almeno dall'inizio del secolo.
Da Stati Uniti e Unione solo vaghi moniti.
#Israele ha licenza di fare quel che vuole, ingabbiare la #Palestina,bombardare la #Siria, darsi al terrorismo contro l'#Iran
Il problema non è #SheikhJarrah, il problema è un paese dominato da una destra ultranazionalista, suprematista e razzista che non ha mai smesso di comportarsi come tale e di perseguire la pulizia etnica dei palestinesi e l'espansione territoriale a danno loro e dei paesi vicini.
Le notizie da #Israele cominciano sempre nel momento in cui Israele, POTENZA OCCUPANTE "reagisce" agli attacchi degli occupati.
Che di solito partono dopo che Israele innalza il livello di repressione fino a che qualcuno non decide di tirare qualche inutile razzo da #Gaza.

What's going on in #sheikhjarrah.
The settlers are trying to own a neighborhood by a fake deeds bearing in their minds that the the occupation courts will be in their side, like the hundreds cases they have a court orders with fake documents.
It's becoming obvious, its a state of ImageImageImageImage
Organized Mobs for taking the Palestinian property's through a biased law & injusticless.
Settlers taken lands by Military orders or Courts orders&in both ways are illegal under the Int'l law&Geneva convention.
It's an ethnic cleansing crime.#savesheikhjarrh

1) Let me first congratulate @SherryKyama & @O_Owiso for organizing a very stimulating
@opiniojuris symposium on the legacy of the #US' disgraceful sanctions on #ICC personnel. Some highlights and thoughts on some of these articles.…
2) Apologies in advance to the organizers if more articles are on their way. However, given that the much-anticipated @asilorg report on the future of US engagement w/ the ICC hits tomorrow, it seemed prudent to dive into this symposium beforehand.
3) The piece by @OrinaEsq was particularly good given that it (IMO, correctly) evaluates US sanctions through the broader prism of "more powerful vs weaker states" as opposed to something uniquely American/vis-a-vis US-ICC relations solely.…

#Ongwen will soon be delivering his unsworn statement (at the start of the defence arguments in the sentencing hearings). I would imagine the main goal is to produce empathy for Ongwen's experience by putting the judges/public inside his perspective. #ICC
#Ongwen's speech is planned for around 45 minutes, followed by Obhof, then Ayena. #ICC

The most interesting aspect of day 1 of the #Ongwen sentencing hearings was the clearly divergent perspectives between the prosecution and victims. #ICC 🧵
Common Legal Representative for Victims Paolina Massidda was shaking her head while the prosecution said: #Ongwen's crimes "would normally warrant a sentence at the very highest level available under the Rome Statute - 30 years or even life imprisonment" #ICC
The prosecution addressed the victims' reps saying that participating victims have recommended such a sentence "and we share their desire for justice and we respect their views. In another case, against another Accused, we might well agree with their recommendation." #ICC #Ongwen

🧵I've now had a look at the sentencing briefs in #Ongwen, which offer some new perspectives. (Victims:…; Prosecution:…; and Defence:…). The starkest contrast seems to be between the victims and defence. #ICC
The victims (who submitted a joint brief) are recommending a life sentence, the prosecution 20 years, and the defence 10 years (if #Ongwen is not released to undergo Mato Oput).
The Victims' brief is categorical in condemning #Ongwen, arguing that "no mitigating circumstances apply in the present case" and that victims fear that once Ongwen is released, he would "rejoin the LRA...and perpetrate crimes against the communities once again." #ICC

#ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, says she will begin an investigation into war crimes perpetrated in the #WestBank, E #Jerusalem, & #Gaza. While this is an encouraging step...…
in terms of broadcasting the #Israeli #military’s HR abuses on the intl stage, it is important to remember that #ICC rulings do not have any power w/o the cooperation of other states; #Israel and the #US have made it clear that they will not in any way support these proceedings.
While the investigation and potential subsequent trials might be meaningful in a symbolic sense, it is real people like our #international friends and partners who need to do the real work of connecting with their representatives.

THREAD 21 of writing against the 🪖-coup is a thread in which I will look at what the so-called “international community” can/might/won’t do for the #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar #March3Coup #RejectTheMilitary #UN #EU @UNHumanRights @coe @RapporteurUn Image
1. The calls for “action” are getting louder. And rightly so! From the moment 19-year old Mya Thwet Thwet Khine was shot, the police/military has continued committing the most serious crimes. To shoot, beat, and arrest peaceful protestors is against national and international law
2. Since #Feb28Coup the day of #MilkTeaAlliance protests we have seen an escalation in violence by the military which no longer targets protestors but bystanders. It is also clear that people are getting executed: shot in the head.Result is instant incapacitation and likely death

Thread 1) Are we witnessing a #genocidal campaign by #Eritrea’n forces in the #war in #Tigray #Ethiopia? The atrocities committed and the apparent intent may seem to point in that direction. In this thread I will outline the argument supporting such possible claim. #genocide
2) First, it is important to distinguish between #Eritrean & #Ethiopian forces, although #ENDF is also allegedly responsible for mass atrocities. But in #genocide the intent of the atrocities is also important to consider, which appears more ambiguous in relation to ENDF.
3) It has been documented widespread & systematic #massacers of civilians by #EDF throughout Tigray, targeted as #Tegaru. Many witnesses also claim that Eritrean troops have admitted to orders to kill #Tigrayan men & boys, so they shall not later revenge the atrocities.

The @IntlCrimCourt is not a serious threat; no #Israelis will be tried,screaming headlines notwithstanding. It's another performance in the ongoing propaganda war led by intl law cultists ("lawfare"), including powerful NGOs, to demonize #Israel, fuelling incitement & violence
2/n The specifics of claims by #ICC prosecutors & judges cited in media reports are window dressing for a vicious political campaign to demonize Israel. It's not about law, policies or "occupation"; if #Israel were to go back to pre-1967 lines, the delegitimization would continue
3/ Tens of millions of $, £, €, CHF, NOK, etc are behind 20 yrs of NGO #ICC lawfare, led by @hrw @amnesty @fidh_un @btselem @BtSIsrael @AdalahEnglish @AlHaq .... Massive & irresponsible & accountable funding weaponized intnl law & #HumanRights to attack #Israel. Follow the money

1/ #Israel’s Foreign Min. @Gabi_Ashkenazi on the decision by the @IntlCrimCourt:

Today's decision by the #ICC distorts international law & turns this institution into a political tool of anti-Israeli propaganda.

The ICC has no jurisdiction to deliberate the Palestinian case.
2/ The State of Israel is a robust democracy with an independent and effective legal system that is deeply respected all over the world.
3/ The judges’ decision rewards Palestinian terrorism, as well as the refusal of the Palestinian Authority to return to direct negotiations with Israel, and will further polarize both sides.

Things to look for in the #Ongwen verdict (relying partly on input from people familiar w/ the trial that I cannot cite):
1. I think it quite likely Ongwen will be convicted of many of the charges. The Prosecution case was well-executed and evidence is (largely) strong.
2. Areas where the evidence is weaker/contradictory: the attack on Pajule. Ongwen may have been in "sick bay" (LRA field hospital) nursing an injury, and may not have had control over the attack. #Ongwen #ICC
3. Persecution, which requires discriminatory intent to be tied to each individual attack. The Prosecution's argument is that the persecuted group was political - sympathizers/collaborators of the Ugandan government. This may be tricky to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. #Ongwen
