  • Marwan Bishara
    Marwan Bishara “The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.” 14 hours ago
  • Josep Borrell
    Josep Borrell “Today, we are further tightening the restrictive measures against Russia's military and defence sector. We remain united in our determination to dent Russia's war machine and help Ukraine win its legitimate fight for self-defence.” 14 hours ago

“My first reaction was profound distress. Injecting saltwater will definitely contaminate the aquifer and this will have long-term consequences. It would ruin the conditions of life in Gaza. If we don't react to this kind of behaviour, what's to stop any other country from doing this to another group of people in the future? What we see happening in Gaza is beyond the pale. With the definition of the Genocide Convention in mind, I think salinating the aquifer, which is the main source of water, will bring about its partial destruction. Part of it could collapse and become unusable.”
