          Ehud Barak
          In June 2007, the suspect
          imposed a siege on 1.5 million
          residents of Gaza. The siege,
          which is ongoing in 2009, is
          collective punishment
          according to International Law.
          The year and a half long siege
          caused severe food and fuel
          shortages, intermittent drinking
          water and electricity supply,
          disruption to sewage treatment
          plants and shortages of
          medicine and essential medical
          equipment, affecting the lives of
          1.5 million people - a violation
          of the Fourth Geneva
          Convention and Rome Statute.
          On 27 December 2008, the
          suspect ordered the aerial
          bombardment of Gazan
          population centers. The attacks           Photo courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson
          involved hundreds of aircraft
          sorties, dropping hundreds of
          tons of bombs on Gazan
          neighborhoods At least 1,200
          people - men, women and
          children were killed and 5,300
          people were injured. The
          bombs damaged thousands of
          homes and turned hundreds of
          thousands of people into
          refugees. On 10 December
          2008, a formal complaint was
          submitted by Lebanese lawyers
          to the International Criminal
          Court in the Hague,
          Netherlands, against Ehud
          Barak and four other Israeli:

          Tzipi Livni
          On the 12th of July 2006, the
          suspect along with her
          accomplices ordered the aerial
          bombardment and artillery
          assault on residential areas in
          Lebanon. For 34 days she
          authorized troops to make
          12,000 aerial sorties, to fire
          100,000 artillery shells,
          damaging 350 schools and
          completely destroying 15,000
          residential houses in Lebanon.
          130,000 homes were partially
          damaged. The attacks
          destroyed water sources,
          hospitals, power stations and
          other infrastructure essential to
          human life. 900,000 people
          were forced to leave their
          homes and remain without
          shelter for many days. Some
          1,200 people were killed, and
          4,400 were wounded:                       Photo courtesy of the Israeli Foreign
          approximately 30% of the dead,            Office
          about 360, were children under
          the age of 13. On 27th
          December 2008, the suspect
          and her accomplices ordered
          an aerial, ground and naval
          attack on densely populated
          areas in the Gaza Strip. The
          attacks again damaged
          houses, hospitals, schools and
          important infrastructure, and
          killed more than 1,200 people,
          including hundreds of children.
          200,000 people became
          refugees as a result of the
          suspects’ orders. Attacking
          innocent people, shooting

          Ehud Olmert
          On 12 July 2006, the suspect
          ordered the bombing of cities
          and villages in Lebanon. The
          34-day bombing of residential
          areas broke international law.
          The aerial bombing and land
          assault ordered by the suspect,
          killed approximately 1,200
          people and injured about 4,400.
          During the attack, the suspect
          also ordered several thousand
          cluster bombs to be dropped
          near residential areas in
          Lebanon, something forbidden
          under international
          conventions. In total, about a
          million small bombs were
          dropped, which led to the post
          war deaths of 30 people and
          the injury of 215, including 90
          children. In the summer of                Photo courtesy of the Prime Minister's
          2007, the suspect ordered the             Office
          blockade of 1.5 million people
          in Gaza, preventing them from
          receiving adequate food, water
          and electricity supplies and
          medication – something
          explicitly prohibited under
          international law. In December
          2008, the suspect ordered an
          air, land and sea attack on the
          residents of Gaza, causing the
          rapid destruction of residential
          areas and the deaths of 1,200
          people - hundreds of them
          children. On 10 December
          2008, Lebanese lawyers
          submitted a formal complaint to
          the International Criminal
          Court, The Hague,

          Eliezer Shkedy
          The facts: On 12th July 2006,
          the suspect was head of the
          Israeli Air Force and therefore
          responsible for thousands of
          fighter jet sorties, which
          bombed residential areas in
          Lebanon. The bombings, using
          hundreds of tons of explosives,
          damaged more than 100,000
          homes. The Air Force, under
          his command, deliberately
          targeted water sources and
          electrical power stations, and
          wrecked schools, hospitals and
          clinics. The air strikes killed
          hundreds of people and caused             Photo courtesy of the IAF Spokesperson
          hundreds of thousands of
          people to flee their homes,
          becoming refugees without
          shelter. The deliberate bombing
          of residential neighborhoods,
          as well as the deliberate
          destruction of houses, water
          and electricity plants, and
          infrastructure essential to
          human beings is strictly
          prohibited under international
          law. Whoever violates these
          laws is considered to be a war
          criminal and guilty of crimes
          against humanity. Collective
          punishment and extra judicial
          executions are all forbidden
          under the Fourth Geneva
          Convention and violations can
          be heard before the
          International Criminal Court,
          The Hague, Netherlands.

           On 18th April 1996, IDF troops
           fired 38 artillery shells
           measuring 155 mm at the UN
           compound in the village of
           Qana, Lebanon where 800
           refugees were sheltering. They
           had fled their homes due to
           Operation Grapes of Wrath.
           The IDF attack was in response
           to Hezbollah fighters launching
           rockets at IDF forces from a
           place a few hundred meters
           from the compound. The IDF
           shelling killed 106 people and
           left dozens of survivors injured.
           During this time, the suspect
           was head of the Israeli army
           intelligence, and, together with
           others, was responsible for the
           shelling. Firing at a compound
           where civilians are sheltering
           from fighting is considered a            Photo courtesy of the Israeli Embassy
           war crime under international
           law. On 22 July 2002, as head
           of the Israeli army, the suspect
           ordered a one-ton bomb to be
           dropped on a residential house
           in Rafah, Gaza, in order to
           assassinate Salah Shehadeh.
           The bomb caused the deaths
           of 15 people including 9
           children, and injured dozens
           more. Bombing neighborhoods
           where civilians live is forbidden
           under international law and is
           considered to be a war crime.
           In December 2006, while the
           suspect was making a private
           visit to New Zealand, a second
           lawsuit was submitted to a New
           Zealand court, regarding the

            suspect’s part in the
            assassination of Shehadeh. An
            Aukland district judge ordered
            his arrest. Pressure was
            however placed on the Attorney
            General by the Ministry of
            Justice to cancel the warrant. In
            July 2008, the suspect’s name
            was included in a list submitted
            to a Spanish court, for
            investigations into war crimes.

                                           AGAINST HUMANITY


           Amir Peretz
           On 12 July 2006, the suspect
           ordered the aerial
           bombardment of villages and
           cities in Lebanon, targeting
           infrastructure essential to
           humans, such as water, food,
           fuel and electricity plants. The
           bombing also damaged
           hospitals, clinics and schools -
           all places expressly prohibited
           from attack under international
           law. As a result of the bombing,
           ground assault and artillery fire,
           more than 1,100 people were
           killed including hundreds of
           children and elderly people. On
           8th November 2006, the
           suspect ordered the shelling of
           Beit Hanoun, a neighborhood in
           Gaza, in response to rockets
           fired toward Israel. For 15
           minutes, residential

           neighborhoods were shelled,
           resulting in the deaths of 19
           people, including 9 children
           and injuring at least 40. Firing
           shells deliberately and
           indiscriminately into civilian
           areas constitutes a war crime.

           complaint was filed to the High
           Court in Morocco on the
           suspicion Peretz had

           Binyamin Ben Eliezer
           At the end of the ’67 war, the
           suspect was the head of the
           Sayeret Shaked IDF Unit.
           According to testimonies by
           Israeli and Egyptian soldiers,
           the suspect ordered the killing
           of 250 Egyptian or Palestinian
           fighters (exact nationality
           unclear) shortly after the war
           ended. Evidence indicates that
           the killings were carried out
           using helicopters flying low
           above the Sinai desert, hunting
           the retreating soldiers, some of
           whom were unarmed. Further
           eye-witness testimonies state
           that the suspect personally
           executed prisoners of war who
           did not obey instructions. The
           killing of soldiers after hostilities
           have ended, and the execution
           of prisoners of war are all
           expressly prohibited under               Photo courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson
           international law and are
           classed as war crimes. Between
           March 2001 and November
           2002 the suspect, acting as
           Minister of Defense, led a policy
           of extra judicial killings,
           collective punishment and the
           shelling of residential areas in
           the West Bank and Gaza. All of
           these actions are prohibited
           under international law and
           constitute crimes war and crime
           against humanity, and since

           Avi Dichter
           From July 1, 2002, on the day
           the International Criminal Court
           was established, until May
           2005, the suspect was head of
           the Shabak, the Israeli
           intelligence service (GSS). As
           head of the Shabak the
           suspect ordered tortures to be
           carried out - an activity explicitly
           prohibited under the Geneva
           Conventions, the Rome Statute
           and the International
           Convention against Torture.
           Torture is a crime against
           humanity. In July 2002, the
           suspect was part of a group,
           which ordered the
           assassination of Salah
           Shehadeh, the commander of
           the Hamas military wing. The
           assassination was carried out            Photo courtesy of the Government
           by dropping a one-ton bomb on            Information Office
           Shehadeh's house, causing the
           deaths of 15 people, including
           9 children, and injuring dozens
           more. Extra-judicial executions
           are war crimes under
           international law. The bombing
           of residential neighborhoods is
           collective punishment. On 10
           December 2008, a complaint
           was submitted to the
           International Criminal Court,
           The Hague, Netherlands,
           against the suspect and 4 other
           people – on the suspicion he
           had committed war crimes for
           authorizing the siege of Gaza.
           Prior to this, in July 2008, a
           complaint was filed to the High
           Court of Spain on the suspicion

            he had committed a war crime
            for ordering the execution of
            Salah Shehadeh. The Spanish
            court has formally issued a
            warrant for the suspect’s arrest.
            Description of the suspect: a
            white man about 55 years old,
            taller than average, white hair.
            The suspect speaks Hebrew,

           Carmi Gilon
           From 1995-1996, the suspect
           was head of the Israeli Internal
           Security services, also known
           as the Shabak (GSS). In this
           capacity, he ordered the torture
           of Palestinian detainees – an
           activity prohibited under
           international law and classed
           as a crime against humanity.
           Torture usually included: tying
           a person in painful positions
           continuously for hours,
           sometimes days; tying a
           noxious smelling hood over the
           person’s head, "shaking" the
           person; depriving the person of
           sleep and food; exposing him
           or her to freezing or high

            were tortured but have not
            given testimonies). The tortures
            were carried out during the time
            that the suspect was head of
            the Shabak. In August 2001, a
            complaint about the suspect’s
            involvement in torture was
            made in Denmark by a group of
            lawyers for human rights and a
            group of Palestinians who had
            received asylum there. The
            complaint was rejected
            because the suspect had
            diplomatic immunity at the time
            since he was acting as the
            ambassador for Israel in
            Denmark. Description of the

           Dan Halutz
           On 12 July 2006, the suspect,
           as chief of staff, ordered air
           strikes on villages and cities in
           Lebanon, causing destruction
           and killing for 34 days -
           something prohibited under
           international law. Following the
           air strikes, which destroyed
           infrastructure and necessities
           for human life, nearly 900,000
           people were forced to leave
           their homes or remain without
           shelter for weeks. Despite this,
           the suspect continued to order           Photo courtesy of the office of the chief of
           his pilots to bombard Lebanon            staff
           repeatedly, wiping out entire
           neighborhoods. 4 years earlier,
           in July 2002, the suspect
           ordered a one-ton bomb to be
           dropped on a house in Rafah in
           Gaza, causing the deaths of 15
           people including 9 children,
           and injuring dozens more. In
           July 2008, after collecting

           documents, a complaint was
           submitted to the High Court of

           On 10 January 2002, as head
           of the Southern Command, the
           suspect ordered the demolition
           of 59 houses in Rafah,
           occupied Gaza, an act that is
           considered to be collective
           punishment under international
           law and therefore prohibited.
           On 22 July 2002, the suspect
           was part of a group who
           ordered a one-ton bomb to be
           dropped on a house in Gaza to
           eliminate the Palestinian Salah
           Shehadeh. The explosion killed
           15 people, including 11
           children. Dozens of people
           were injured. The demolition of

           occupation are considered
           violations of International law
           and classified as a war crime.
           In July 2008, a claim was filed
           against the suspect in the High
           Court of Spain. In 2005, the
           suspect escaped arrest in
           Britain after a judge issued an
           arrest warrant for him on
           suspicion that he was involved
           in war crimes. Description of

           Gabi Ashkenazi
           On 27th December 2008, the
           suspect, as Chief of Staff,
           ordered the Israeli army to
           attack densely populated areas
           in the Gaza Strip. For three
           weeks, 1,500 tons of bombs
           were dropped from the air on
           residential neighborhoods in
           Gaza and tens of thousands of
           artillery shells were fired from
           tanks. For 3 weeks, the army
           damaged and destroyed
           houses, schools, hospitals,
           infrastructure, water and
           electrical plants, killed more
           than 1,200 people, hundreds of
           them children, and injured
           about 5,300 people. Hundreds
           of thousands of civilians were
           turned into refugees and had
           no shelter. Prior to this, the
           suspect was part of a group,
           which implemented a siege on             Photo courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson
           1.5 million people in the Gaza
           Strip, denying them a regular
           supply of food, water, medicine,
           fuel and electricity for 18
           months. According to
           international law, it is absolutely
           prohibited to bomb residential
           areas in a way that interrupts
           the lives of civilians; to carry out
           executions without trial, to
           collectively punish; to destroy or
           damage hospitals, schools and
           homes. The prohibitions
           against collective punishment
           were enshrined in the Geneva
           Conventions after the behavior
           of the Nazis in Europe during
           World War II when they

            punish residents for sheltering
            the resistance. 194 countries
            agreed with the prohibitions of
            the Fourth Geneva Convention.
            In December 2008, a complaint
            was filed in the Hague against
            the suspect, on suspicion that
            he had committed war crimes
            and crimes against humanity

            Giora Eiland
            In July 2008, a claim was filed
            against the suspect in the High
            Court in Spain on suspicion
            that he was involved in war
            crimes and crimes against
            humanity for authorizing a one
            ton bomb to be dropped on a
            house in Gaza, which caused
            the deaths of 15 people
            including 9 children (July 2002).
            Bombing residential areas is
            collective punishment and
            constitutes a war crime. Extra          Photo courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson

                                      FOR WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES
                                           AGAINST HUMANITY


           Matan Vilnai
           In July 2007, the suspect along
           with his accomplices ordered a
           siege on 1.5 million people in
           Gaza. The siege caused severe
           deprivation by preventing the
           regular supply of food, water,
           gas, electricity, and medication
           to the residents living there.
           The siege lasted for 18 months
           (is still ongoing) and included a
           naval, air and land blockade. In
           February 2008, the suspect
           said on Israeli army radio "the
           more the Qassam rocket fire
           intensifies and the rockets
           reach a longer range, (the
           Palestinians) will bring upon
           themselves a holocaust."
           Indeed, on 27th December
           2008, the suspect was part of a
           cabinet decision to order air,
           naval and ground attacks on              Photo courtesy of the IDF Spokesperson
           densely populated areas in
           Gaza - attacks that lasted for
           about 3 weeks. As a result of
           the attacks, entire buildings
           collapsed on residents and
           infants were found starving next
           to their dead parents.
           Wounded people were buried
           under rubble for many days
           because IDF soldiers denied
           medics access to rescue them.

            (According to reports by the
            Red Cross.) Some 1,200
            people were killed, hundreds of
            them children. 5,300 were
            wounded. The air force bombs
            and tank shells hit hospitals,
            clinics, schools, infrastructure,
            electricity and water sources -
            leaving hundreds of thousands
            without the necessities for life.
            In December 2008, a lawsuit
            was filed against the suspect in
            the International Criminal
            Court, The Hague on suspicion
            that the siege of Gaza
            breached international law and
            was thus a war crime and crime
            against humanity. Description
            of the suspect: a white man,
            about 65 years old, shaven
            head, above average height.
                                              Anyone who has information
                                              about the suspect when he is
                                              outside of the Israeli borders,
