Open letter to Netanyahu from massacre survivors' legal team

“As Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, you should not accuse the Belgian Supreme Court of legitimizing terrorism simply because it accepts the principle that Belgian courts have universal jurisdiction over perpetrators of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity. Your country was the very first country in the world to endorse universal jurisdiction for such crimes in its national legislation.” Lawyers representing survivors of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, who received a positive — and landmark — ruling from the Belgian Supreme Court yesterday, issue a public demand that Israeli Foreign Minister Binyamin Netanyahu apologize for his statements yesterday.
