From the article by Craig Murray :

“This is the official definition of Genocide in international law, from the ** Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide **


In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such :

a) Killing members of the group.

b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group.

c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.

d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group.

e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

“On Tuesday I (Craig Murray) attended a session called by Palestine at the United Nations at Geneva. Over 120 states attended. While the formal session consisted of statements of national position with few surprises, I was able to discuss with a large number of delegates in the corridors WHY THE GENOCIDE CONVENTION HAS NOT BEEN ACTIVATED triggering a reference to the International Court of Justice. The answer is now clear to me. It is not that people are worried that a claim of genocide will not be successful at the International Court of Justice. It is that everybody is quite sure it will succeed. There is no respectable argument that this is not a genocide in the terms outlined above … It may sound astonishing, but to the world’s diplomats the ENORMITY of a genocide appears less troubling than the ENORMITY of doing something about it. “
