Following the close of a two-day conference "On the Question of Jerusalem" in Jakarta, the UN "Civil Society Forum on the Question of Palestine" met on December 16, 2015, to continue bashing Israel and spreading hatred. Riyad Mansour, Palestinian representative to the UN, praised the Palestinian children who have stabbed, shot, stoned, and driven cars into Israelis, notwithstanding that the cowardly act of encouraging children to be combatants is criminal.
In the words of the press release:
"Riyad Mansour, Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine to the United Nations... The current uprising was being shouldered by youth who were fed up by the humiliation of Israel's occupation, he said.... 'Our youth are exploding out of frustration,' he said, adding that they would charge with a stone or knife knowing most likely they would be killed by Israeli soldiers.... They were demonstrating courage, as they were determined to put an end to misery and to the occupation..."
"Zulaiha Ismail, a trustee at the Perdana Global Peace Foundation in Kuala Lumpur... said ... It was sad that Palestinian children were now sacrificing themselves. 'You can take the child out of the war, but you can't take the war out of the child.'" No sadness was expressed for the Jewish victims of the Palestinian child terrorists.
Ms. Ismail, an invited speaker, also accused Israel of committing genocide:
"She said... the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War .... had launched a tribunal that had, in 2013, found Israel guilty of genocide against the people of Palestine."
Other speakers called for the global prosecution of Israelis, twisting law to persecute Jews:
"Shawan Jabarin, General Director of Al-Haq - Law in the Service of Man, based in Ramallah...States parties to relevant human rights instruments must act now, he said. They had a legal obligation to ensure that international crimes were prosecuted, as written in the Geneva Conventions... Settlements were a war crime...Civil society could push their Governments to prosecute the perpetrators of war crimes, he said...With regard to the International Criminal Court, he said he had submitted information two weeks ago in The Hague on behalf of four organizations and would send additional information on current events..."
