The Palestine Right to Return Coalition Demands:

U.S. Must Investigate Sharon for War Crimes, Bring Him to Justice

17 March 2001

Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition (PRRC) calls on all people of conscience to call, email, and/or fax the White House and State Department to express their concern about the upcoming visit of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to the United States, and to demand that the United States cooperate in bringing Sharon to justice on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity before, during and after Israel's 1982 invasion and occupation of Lebanon.

The United States actively supported indictments against former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic, even while he was in power, as well as the international tribunal for Rwanda. Failing to apply standards of justice to Sharon and protections for the victims of the crimes of which he is accused would be evidence of a gross double-standard and a signal that the United States is willing to tolerate atrocities against innocent civilians as long as they are committed by the leaders of “friendly” states.
