Collective Punishment ; a Favored Israeli Policy

Civilians are the first to be harmed in almost any armed conflict. It is almost impossible for any army, regardless of the high tech weapons and smart bombs used, to avoid civilian casualties. Civilian casualties are only 'decreased' at the best estimation.

Looking more closely on what Israel is doing in Gaza, and Lebanon now we see two patterns :
1. The Israeli military spokesmen explain that the IDF is doing ' all its efforts' to avoid targeting civilians.
2. IDF military operations themselves are not the main cause of civilian suffering, but the other policies being followed in every miliraty campaign and intervention.

Israel has been involved in military acts against Palestinians since long. The national resistance to occupation was dealt with using extensive military power, and any attempt to stand against occupation ( even the most peaceful ones ) were met with brutality and force ( 'firmly' in the Israeli vocabulary ) Still, this is not the essence of the problem. It is not the Military operations or invasions that violated the international laws. It is the whole Israeli policy towards Palestinians.

Take for example curfews. The whole citizens of a village or a city would be forced to stay home for 2 to 3 days whenever there is a 'military' or 'security' need. The whole population would be deprived from going to schools, universities, hospitals, and work only to " avoid contact with jewish residents in settlements " as is the case in Hebron for example.

Checkpoints are another example of the collective punishment policy. " Israel 's policy is based on the assumption that every single Palestinian is a security threat, thereby justifying restrictions on his or her freedom of movement. This assumption is racist, and leads to sweeping violation of the human rights of an entire population on the basis of national origin. As such. the policy flagrantly violates international law. " ( Btselem.org )

The latest example of collective punishment policy being used by the Israeli governments is the use of sonic booms. Olmert, the Israeli PM said : "Thousands of residents in southern Israel live in fear and discomfort, so I gave instructions that nobody will sleep at night in Gaza." !! Targeting the power plants, bridges, roads, and the already weak infrastructure is another example. These are not 'targets' as they are pure civilian structures.
It is very clear that the suffering of the civilian population is not merely a byproduct of Israel's attacks against militants, It is an intentional part of Israeli policy. ( Bitterlemons.org )

Whether this policy is giving results or not ( which in Gaza and Lebanon cases is giving opposite results ) it is a direct violation to all international and humanitarian laws. ( Palestine Israeli Journal.org )

Is there any evidence that the use of 'collective punishment' policy has ever brought up any results ?
Can such policies be justified even when their results are 'seen' ??
What is the benefit of International Laws then, if a ' veto' can simply end all the embarrassment of violating all human rights laws ?

Sorry for the super long comment, but I'm pasting in an excerpt from Oona Hathaway's "Do Human Rights Treaties Make a Difference?" Her findings are actually pretty depressing (I believe she was quite disappointed), but they are interesting and relevant to any discussion of international human rights law.

Countries with worse practices may be more inclined to ratify treaties, or we may simply know more about violations committed by countries that sign human rights treaties, making countries that ratify look worse than they are. Yet given that I find not a single treaty for which ratification seems to be reliably associated with better human rights practices and several for which it appears to be associated with worse practices, it would be premature to dismiss the possibility that human rights treaties may sometimes lead to poorer human rights practices within the countries that ratify them.
[. . .]
Treaties are instrumental in that they create law that binds ratifying countries, with the goal of modifying nations' practices in particular ways. But treaties also declare or express to the international community the position of countries that have ratified. The position taken by countries in such instances can be sincere, but it need not be. When countries are rewarded for positions rather than effects-as they are when monitoring and enforcement of treaties are minimal and external pressure to conform to treaty norms is high, governments can take positions that they do not honor, and benefit from doing so.
[. . .]
This perspective helps explain why treaty ratification might sometimes be associated with worse human rights practices than otherwise expected. Countries that take the relatively costless step of treaty ratification may thereby offset pressure for costly changes in policies. Because monitoring and enforcement are usually minimal, the expression by a country of commitment to the treaty's goals need not be consistent with the country's actual course of action.

Hello and welcome again to my blog..
/Because monitoring and enforcement are usually minimal, the expression by a country of commitment to the treaty's goals need not be consistent with the country's actual course of action/
Right. But when the issue is an issue of an intentional policy, not failure to monitor or reinforce, then we are infront of a totally different issue.
Dont you think so ?

Annonymous :
It is very critical for us to differentiate between the position of the American Govt and the American people. Your govt has been acting stupidly and unfairly, against the people in Palestine. This should not be translated by us into hatred for the American people.
Thanks for your words. I do believe that the American people needs to be exposed to the REAL situation in the occupied palestinian territories OPT. Only then we can hope to see a balanced american policy in the middle east.
Good day.

"But when the issue is an issue of an intentional policy, not failure to monitor or reinforce, then we are infront of a totally different issue. Don't you think so?"

First, let me tell you that I don't see collective punishment as a useful policy in any form or place. It's a fancy way of saying discrimination and oppression.

The Israeli policy of collective punishment is in direct violation of several international human rights laws. Yet they continue doing what they're doing. I would say the Hathaway excerpt speaks to why international law has been unable to rein in Israeli policy, through which it commits flagrant human rights abuses.

It is not as if human rights do not exist in Israeli discourse. Israel often speaks of human rights... for Jews. Hathaway's research merely suggests that by signing onto the human rights bandwagon, countries like Israel effectively improve their "human rights record" and escape international pressure to actually improve their human rights practices. (The US would be guilty of this, as well.) These results put into question the benefits of international law.

While I don't completely buy into the pessimism, it is interesting to think about.

As for distinguishing between the US government and its citizens, thank you! Please don't lump all of us in there with our quack of a president!

I suppose once again it depends on one's point of view. Certainly no Palestinian (or Jordanian, or Egyptian, or Lebanese, etc.) I've ever spoken to or corresponded with has ever conceded that the on-going attacks on Israeli civilians since 1948 constitute 'collective punishment' of the Israeli people.

What is a suicide bomber except a person who attacks civilians trapped on public transportation?

What crime did the children of Ma'alot commit that they should be slaughtered in a school house?

What is the barrage of shelling at Sderot and Ashkelon, except the collective punishment of civilian communities?

And then there is the unceasing missile attacks launched into civilian communities of northern Israel...

There has not been ONE year since 1948 that Israeli civilians haven't been subjected to attack by fedayeen, Fatah, PFLP, PRC, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Tanzeen, Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade, or some other armed group.

And you accuse US of collective punishment? Israel has been under siege by Arab extremism since its inception, and the STATED goal has always been genocide.

And then you wonder here why there are closures, security checks, and a separation wall?

It is time for the Arab world to engage in good-faith efforts at peace-making. We don't trust you--Oslo got us more suicide bombings; withdrawal from Gaza got us killings, shellings and a soldier being kidnapped; withdrawal from Lebanon has resulted in the build-up of Hezbollah's arsenal and its use against civilian towns and farms.

You are always asking for more.

No. It is the Israeli government's job to protect me and my family from suicide bombers, Hezbollah missiles, Hamas rockets, PRC kidnappings and killings. If that means that there is a wall, a security check, lines, and closures...well, you asked for it.

Prove to us that you want peace and not our deaths.

How would you stop terrorattacks inside your country, Osaid?

I'm 100% against collective punishment, but how else can a country protect itself against its civilians being blown up in busses, pizeria's, or getting qassams/katushiya's on their heads?

Maybe you can enlighten me, because I am against both (collective punishment AND terror attacks) and I don't seem to be able to detach the both....

Hello Tsedek..

Sorry for taking time to respond.
The Palestinian groups that support targeting civilian Israelis are very weak and are not supported by all palestinians. Many Palestinians are against such acts not because of the Israeli responses but because of the immorality of such attacks.
No single religious line supports attacking civilians at any time and at any point, at war or at peace times.
Those who are running all this are very weak, YET they are exploiting the fact that they acn act freely and without any legal or public responsibility. There is no order recently : when Israel weakened the PNA it is a mess here.

The PNA was quite able to stop most of those groups. Now it is impossible to do so.

The Israeli attacks against the basic infrastructures of the Palestinian securiy forces made it harder to do any progress. ALTHOUGH all security forces were NOT engaged in ilitary actions against IDF, even when IDF invaded all West Bank cities, IDF targeted all the Muqata'as and Police centers. I dont know what they were bearing in mind then!

The answer is to strengthen the Palestinian security forces, give them more space and support to work. This might be an important part of the answer. Stopping the continuous Israeli attacks to the cities and villages is another important step.

I will think of a more balanced and comprehensive answer and post it soon .
I will let you know then
good day from Hebron.

Hi there Osaid :)
Thank you for your response.

You talk about the PNA that was able to stop terrorattacks on civilians inside Israel. My recollection of events is completely different from those days.

Since, after all, the use of violence (either by terrorgroups or by armies) seems, in my eyes, to be the main excuse and/or justification for the ongoing use of exactly that same thing (violence - mostly becoz of the support it gains), would you care to go over a chronological view of events that have lead us to where we are at the moment, starting from the point where things went sour in the peace process and Israel did not trust Arafat's keeping to law (emprisoning terrorist that committed attacks) anymore or opposite where violence came as a response to israel's use of violence?

Have a nice as possible day in Hebron, Osaid ~~~ beautiful city (I've been there B4 the intifada #1, pity I think it would be too dangerous for me to visit there right now...)

Be well & stay safe

Namely, how your baseless accusations post attracted other baseless accusations. Habib and Hosam are spouting paranoidal nonsense at your invitation, Osaid - simply because you did the same. See once again my "paedophilia" comparison which anticipates this.

You won't get peace this way, mate. You'll get endless war.

Osaid great Site. You are doing great. There is an article I would like for people to read. It is written by Emerson Moshe Mansfield an Hebrew/Arab Historian I believe it hits the nail on the head. It is enlightining and True. Though some poeple have a hard time swallowing this article but if they will open there eyes it may be of good to them.

The Hebrews of Israel

of Israel

Israel is a small country about the size of Lincoln, Giles, Limestone,
Madison and Morgan counties combined. The population is roughly Seven
Million with about Four and half Million Jews and about Two Million Arab,
the other half Million comprise of mainly Oriental workers whether they be
from China, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore,Korea etc. The Hebrews of
Israel are from all over the globe, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa,
which is predominately Semitic, India and North and South America. By the
way speaking of the Americas the American Indian are a Hebraic,Berber,
Arabic people meaning Semitic. They came from the Middle East area. The
term Hebrew is the proper term that should be used but in some cases the term
Jew is used. But the term Jew is the religion which is short for Judaism and
that came from the term Judah one of the twelve Hebrew tribes. Today
Hebrew and Jew are usually interchangeable. But a thing to remember is that a
person who practices Judaism can be any race or ethnicity just like a
Christian or Muslim can be. But a Hebrew can't, you see the Hebrews are
from the Caucasoid or i.e.; white race just like the Arab. There ethnicity is Semitic and to break
it down further there tribe is Hebrew etc. People say well what about the
Ethiopians, well as far as being Religious Jewish converts there are some but when referring to blood ethnic Jews i.e
Hebrews there aren't that many any more. Let me make this blunt there are no such people
as black i.e Hebrews i.e ethnic blood Jews. But now when referring to the Ethiopian Jews we need to
realize and remember the original Ethiopians were Semitic meaning a
Caucasoid people. Just the past couple to few hundred years has the Nubian
influence moved in to Ethiopia and especially since the twentieth century
with the negative influence of the civil rights movement. But enough on
that tanjin, back to the real topic of discussion. Israel is a country that
God gave to the Semitic peoples and I mean the seed of Abraham meaning Arab,
Hebrew, Armenian, Kurdish,Berber,Persian etc. Now you people are probably wondering well what
about the German, Russian, and the Polish Jews i.e.; Hebrews. Well those peoples
from those countries that are Jews or i.e. Hebrew are Semitic, but there
are some converts from some countries that are just plain converts and
not Semitic. Like Ethiopia for example. You see there are people out there who are converts and that's
it, they don't have a drop of Semitic blood in them and they say that they are
Gods chosen people, and if you say anything against them they scream
anti-Semitic. Well how can you be an Semite if you don't have any Semitic
blood, all you are is an convert and that's it. People you can not become
Semitic by just simply converting to Judaism you have to be Semitic
Ethnically, meaning a blood Jew or I.e. Hebrew . You can not simply
convert and become a Semite. People need to realize that converting to a religion
does not change you racially or ethnically etc. So the Jewish converts
that have converted to Judaism that do not have any Semitic blood that think
they are Gods chosen people they are not. They are strictly converts and that's
it. They are Jew by religion only. Not blood Jews. They are imposters! About a Million of the
Jews in Israel are converts and that's it they are not blood Jews. People
say that what is going on in the Middle East is a Holy war in some ways it
is, but deep down it is a blood feud, I mean between brothers and cousins.
The Arabs that are in Israel right now and the blood Jews have the right
to that land of Israel more than some convert who doesn't have a drop of
Semitic blood running through his veins. Wake up people! Christians, Jews,
and Muslims if you're not of Abraham's seed you have no business in this
struggle. This war is an ethnic war. It's a family feud.

Osaid -


I accused you of nothing... it would appear that you have misunderstood me. As I said before, this whole post is shaped as a baseless accusation in the "paedophilia" style. While not insane and certainly understandable on an emotional level, it has attracted the next stage in the proccess - the insane baseless accusation. This is why I have called it an invitation. Please note that the insane accusations in the comments attracted a racist adherent of eugenics. It's a slippery slope - this is basically what I am trying to explain. I told you a number of days ago that this post is flame-bait... and I was right. *smug Raccoon* :)

And I am not angry at all, bro. I am calmer than a night in the Yehuda Desert. But I am somewhat discouraged by the inevitable mental wall which arises whenever two people with different takes on this conflict try to communicate.

And about truth - we have already concluded that neither side has a monopoly on it, and that the truths are apparently both radically different and mutually exclusive. Kind of like the Jenin "massacre" fable.

Moreover, you know the need for curfews during operations - they are in place to minimize civilian casualties. And you know the need for checkpoints and roadblocks - they are there to catch terrorists. And both work, despite the discomfort they inflict on the population. And if the population would support peace with more than 2.7% of its mass, this would not be needed at all... just consider... the political facts tell us that 97.3% of Palestinians do not support peace, and hence they support war. How do you expect Israel to act in such a situation?

Actually, this is one of two questions that I would like to ask you:
How would you want Israel to act while maintaining the security of Israeli citizens?

And another question is hypothetical. I have never got the answer to it from a staunch supporter of Palestinians:

1)What would happen were ALL the Israelis suddenly to become complete and utter pacifists, to the point of not raising a hand to defend themselves?
2)What would happen were ALL the Palestinians suddenly to become complete and utter pacifists, to the point of not raising a hand to defend themselves?

Will I get an answer this time? :)

Osaid: I, too, am not a fan of collective punishment but what other means of fighting back do we, as Israelis, have? It's entire Palestinian communities such as the one in Hevron that harbors terrorists and lets them shoot Israeli soldiers from their houses as was the case in Dir Yassin. Yepper...sure was if you read some decent history books and not just Palestinian propaganda.

But anyhow, about the curfews, when I was in Hevron last, there was a curfew on the local Palestinians and I felt so damn secure. It was unbelievable compared to the times when there wasn't a curfew. Just letting you know...your friendly fellow Palis in Hevron shot at me and a group from Avraham Avinu as we were leaving the secured area. And you know what we did!? Nothing, because unlike your fellow Palestinian friends, we're intelligent human beings who realize taking things into our own control won't help.

Why does everyone seem it's in their best interest to let pointless emotion cloud their judgement? How often did an emotional response bring a solution to a conflict?

Tsedek and Raccoon :
The 2.7 % was the Bargouthis percent. RAccoon kept using it as if it means the percentage of palestinians who want peace. This is absolutely wrong. I replied to you raccoon about that on sandmonkey's, if I remember.

Tsedek : I do not like to use surveys very often, coz most of the surveys regarding supporting a party or a plan are very unreliable. Still : the percentage of Palestinians who want peace is at the worst estimations more than 60%. If you want me to forward you to statistics I am glad to do so, but this is not my aim here.
Thanks Raccoon for replying to Greg. He seemed quite angry ! In Hebron the settleres are doing very horrible things and everyone knows that. Who and why did they shoot at you that time I dont know. You surely cannot blame all people of Hebron for that coz simply If we blame Isreal for every act settleres do you would be considered as criminals and terrorists.

A majority of the settlers inside Hebron are staying there only to promote terror and make it worse for all Israelis.I am not planning to go through their insanity and racism, it is not the place for it here.

And yes Tsedek : Ive been little busy the last few days as I arrived back to Hebron.

Greg :
/about the curfews, when I was in Hevron last, there was a curfew on the local Palestinians and I felt so damn secure../
This is racism itself. You feel secure while the original citizens are locked inside their homes and not allowed to live normally just to allow tourists like you to visit a bunch of criminals who are staying in Hebron for the most stupid and unlogical reasons.

Folks the yehude are going to take Lebanon all the way to the Turkish border. There is nothing that Lubenan or Syria can do.
They have to put the Yehude world Population of about 100-120 million somewhere. But this is what might happen. Lubenan is going to be used to house the Gaza Palestinians the Yehude want Gaza they want it bad! They are going to remove the Arab in Gaza or kill the Arab in Gaza both more than likely. They are going to forcebly move the Gaza Arabs to Lubenan. Thow a minority of the Arabs will be made Israeli citizens. Then the Yuhude will fill Gaza like a water bucket, with a small Arab minority in that area. Then the case of Lebanon it will be filled with Gaza Arabs as well as a bigger Yehude population than what lebanon had at the time of the invasion. And of course the Gaza Arabs and the remainder Lebanese arabs that have not been killed or forced to move to Syria, Turkey,Jordan or Egypt will be granted Israeli citizenship. And Oh! by the way the 100-300 thousand Yehude population that were in Lebanon before the war where are they at now. People havent heard a word about them..It seems like they vanished..But folks this is my belief this is like a puzzle. Slowley coming together... Osaid great site. Alah Ma'ik.

Welcome to my blog.
I prefer that you ignore the anonymous comment as I , and all, did.

Ebal :
The last comment you added : I dont know how did u reach such conclusions. I would prefer that you support your 'points' with references or clues that may make them more understandable to 'others'.

Good day all

Osaid - I told you beforehand that baseless accusations attract their ilk. So why are you surprised at Ebal and co.?

It's a fast lane on a downward spiral.

Stop firing rockets. Stop kidnapping and killing. Stop digging tunnels to murder. Stop blowing yourselves up to kill innocent civilvians. Be peaceful (If the "Religion of Peace" can be)then, demand it from Israel. You will then get PEACE.

Sorry. I mistakenly published the previous comment before I was ready...

As long as the Arabs in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria continue to follow the preachings of the Grand Mufti, Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini, you are doomed to the same fate as his protector, Adolf Hitler. The Muslim world may have been radicalized but the forces of freedom will NEVER be defeated. What EVER the cost.

SamMan :

Israel should also stop land confiscations, building more settlements, going on with kicking out original inhibitants and replacing , them with settlers, home demolitions, and killing civilians.

dont you think so ?
