Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will double your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Amnesty to Israel: “Justice Will Not Be Served by Collective Punishment”

HeadlineJul 02, 2014

The Israeli government, meanwhile, has revived the practice of punitive home demolitions, razing the homes of two suspects. This follows a massive raid on the West Bank and airstrikes on Gaza that have killed around 12 Palestinians over the past two weeks. In a statement, Amnesty International urged Israel to halt its crackdown, saying: “Justice will not be served by Israel seeking revenge by imposing collective punishment, or committing other violations of Palestinians’ rights.” Next week will mark the 10th anniversary of the International Court of Justice advisory ruling that said Israel’s separation wall and settlements in the occupied West Bank are illegal.
