GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian lawyers in the Gaza Strip are “preparing to legally and internationally prosecute Israel” for its offensive on Gaza and targeting civilians.

Legal expert Abd al-Karim Shbeir said in a statement that the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip violated all international laws.

Shbeir added that Israel has used “prohibited weapons that violate international law.”

Shbeir held the international community was responsible for the “disastrous results of their silence and for giving the green light for killing and destroying Palestinians.”

Maher Bashir, chief of the Islamic Lawyer’s Union’s Syndicate, warned of committing more war crimes against Palestinians especially if the international community remains silent.

Bashir called upon the Arab League to act to stop the killing of civilians and destroying their homes.

"You broke it, you bought it." Hamas did just that and bears the responsibility for all that followed.

A Palestinian lawyer? C'mon, there's no such thing! Why would Muslims need a lawyer in the first place? They just behead whoever they dislike at that particular moment. See? No need for a lawyer... Do you see ISIS going around with a legal team? No sir- nobody left alive after they say 'Hello- now you die!' maybe the UN team of 'investigators' (funny, no?) will need a lawyer to nail down Hamas on war crimes charges, but I doubt the 'investigators' will ever get to that point...

Palestinians have a tendency to just threaten rather than taking action. Waste of time because Israel only learns with a kick on its backside.

David, your remarks come from a lack of information. Perhaps you have not heard of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and its work ? Or Defence Children International ? Palestinians have different religious beliefs: Muslim, Christian (some 17 different denominations), agnostic and atheist. One's religion is generally believed to be a private matter. As far as I know, beheading is a punishment for certain crimes in Saudi Arabia.

It was an Israeli scholar, Yeshayahu Leibowitz of Hebrew University, that coined the term Judeo-Nazi. Comment pages at Ma'an seem to be overrun with those critters. They are 3D zionists: Denial, Deceit, and Distortion are their bread and butter.

Let the Palestinian lawyers start to prosecute themselves first for war crimes and crimes against humanity through suicide bombings, honor killings, brainwashing children with violence and terrorism, exposing women, children and the weak and old to harm's way, both in Gaza and the West Bank, etc.
