      Mazin Qumsiyeh is the most trustworthy source I know of for information on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. His note of 19 Nov 2010, though written to me, is really for every one of us who cares about life on this planet. It’s in this endnote. [1]

      On 19 Nov 2010 I received from Mazin an e-mail that contained the following small part: “(Those with computer knowledge, please download, save, and post on multiple websites because this information is being suppressed). List of Israeli war criminals, pictures and details . See also this Haaretz story about the original sites (http://israeliwarcriminals.zzl.or
) being taken down
”. [2]

The real challenge
      Of course I hate the actions of these war criminals. And I want them to be punished — severely! I don’t feel any compassion for them. But the problem is, and this I know only intellectually, not “in my gut”, if I really want a better world, then vengeance, punishment, will not work — it will only contribute to making things worse. I’ve made as strong an argument for this perception of reality as I can in my recent posting, The ethics of a just solution of the “Palestinian/Israeli” conflict. [3]

[1] Mazin Qumsiyeh forwarded the file, which began with the text:
      “The following information was received anonymously; presumably from a member of the Israeli Military. It was presented as follows:
      Underlining the following people is an act of retribution and affront. They are the direct perpetrators, agents for the state of Israel that in Dec.- Jan. 2008- 2009 attacked scores of people in the besieged Gaza. The people listed here held positions of command at the time of the attack therefore not only did they perform on behalf of a murderous state mechanism but actively encouraged other people to do the same. They bear a distinctive personal responsibility. They range from low-level field commanders to the highest echelons of the Israeli army. All took an active and direct role in the offensive.
      In underlining them we are purposefully directing attention to individuals rather than the static structures through which they operate. We are aligning people with actions. It is to these persons and others, Like them, to which we must object and bring our plaints to bear upon.
      This information was pirated. We encourage people to seek out other such similar information, it is readily available in the public sphere and inside public officials' locked cabinets. This is a form of resistance that can be effectively sustained for a long while.
      This project for one, has only just begun, do your bit so that this virtual list may come to bear upon the physical. Disseminate widely.”
      The introductory note was followed by identification of 200 Israeli military people in command roles for the attack on Gaza, each of them personally responsible for behaving as a war criminal and commanding other Israeli military to act as war criminals.

[2] A note from Mazin Qumsiyeh with information about other sites that have the identification material posted. On 22 November 2010 I received another note from Mazin. He mentioned,, and, the last of which was my original source. The first two are new ones for me. The site works fine for me, but the site does not include the pictures when I try to get it. The display is identical, however the boxes for the pictures are empty.
