A Mr. Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC)
The law is the hallmark of human civilization. Each human progress went hand in hand with the strengthening of law. The challenge that confronts us, the Israeli aggression on Gaza is to say, in the heart of this suffering, that the violence must answer justice.
War crimes? Only the courts can impose. But we all have to testify as a human being exists only in relation to others. The circumstances give any dimension to Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1949 "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
The protection of people and not that of States, is the raison d'Ítre of the ICC. A people without a state is the most endangered of all, and to history it is placed under the protection of international bodies. The people most vulnerable must be the most protected. The killing of Palestinian civilians, Israeli tanks are bleeding humanity. We have campaigned for the power of the Attorney General at the service of all victims, and this power is to send the world a message of hope, the construction of an international law based on the right of persons . And together, one day, we pay tribute to the Palestinian people for all he has made in defending human freedoms.
