Violation of International Law
Saleh alleges that George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz planned and waged the Iraq War in violation of international law by waging a “war of aggression” as laid out by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg over 60 years ago.

Islah supports the effort to bring war planners and perpetrators to justice. We recognize that this case may never be allowed to come to court. Nonetheless, combined action by war victims against war perpetrators is part of revealing the truth about the crimes committed and seeking some sort of reconciliation and justice. Putting these defendants behind bars will never remove the horrors of the Iraq Wars nor will it absolve the United States or the “Coalition of the Willing” from their crimes, but it is a step toward revealing the truth about those crimes and seeking to make it more difficult to commit them again.

This case needs your support. The crime of aggression cannot be allowed to go unnoticed. Leaders must be held accountable for their actions and the voices of millions of Iraqis, harmed by the wars and the ongoing crisis in Iraq, cannot be silenced.
