Three human rights activists, two Jewish-Israeli dissidents and a Palestinian survivor of several Israeli onslaughts on Gaza, will be facing trial for disrupting a representative of the Israeli state and challenging her responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The legal proceedings against the three, Ronnie Barkan, Stavit Sinai and Majed Abusalama, will begin on March 4th.

The incident took place in June 2017 in front of MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid), member of the Israeli apartheid parliament as well as Chair of the anti-BDS lobby and Head of the Israeli mission to the European Council, who was hosted by the Deutsch-Israelische Gesellschaft at the Humboldt University in Berlin. MK Lavie herself is personally accountable for her role as a coalition member during the 2014 attack on the besieged Gaza Strip, where over 2,200 people have been killed, including 89 entire families that were obliterated. A media frenzy soon broke out throughout German and Israeli media, which included slander, lies and the outrageous claim of anti-Semitism against the activists.

Prof. Richard Falk, renowned legal scholar, former UN Special Rapporteur and co-author of the UN report “​Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid​”, had endorsed the three and publicly discussed the moral imperative of their action.

“We are determined to challenge Israeli crimes by using our relative privilege in order to turn the tables against Israel and take it to court. Therefore, we do not concern ourselves with the verdict but rather with the opportunity of challenging Israel along with Germany’s heavy involvement in crimes against humanity.

In spite of the character assassination and certain restrictions against us, our trial signals to the neutralized and pacified German civil society that it can not choose its criminals based on its history. German society must shed its passivity by denouncing Israeli colonization and racial supremacy if it truly wants to be liberated from its horrendous past.” (Humboldt3)

The general public and members of the media are invited to participate in the legal proceedings, holding Israel accountable for practicing The Crime of Apartheid and numerous other violations.
