ISRAEL SELLS ARMS TO COUNTRIES COMMITTING GENOCIDE ​​

A Major Critique: ISRAEL SELLS ARMS TO COUNTRIES COMMITTING GENOCIDE ​​

Prof. Yair Auron, Associate Director of the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide in Jerusalem, has  published courageously in Israel's most influential newspaper, Haaretz -both in the Hebrew and  English editions - ​a powerful critique of Israel's arm sales to countries engaged or known to be threatening ​genocide.

The critique refers to current sales to Myrammar, and Azerbeijan, and past sales to Serbia and Rwanda.
