For readers whose first introduction to Shakespeare was through the widely seen film Henry V by Laurence Olivier, it is not surprising that Shakespeare was regarded as a patriotic, nationalistic and militaristic, rather pro-war playwright. Olivier's Henry V, as Ton Hoenselaars points out in his “Out-Ranting the Enemy Leader”: Henry V and/as World War II Propaganda, was entrenched in the British propaganda effort even before the thought of the film version of the war epic had occurred. Indeed, the film resulted from an invitation to produce it for the Churchill government. According to William Shaw, Olivier's film produced uplifting, patriotic propaganda for a war-weary England. It was the first Shakespeare play produced in Technicolor.
The West Bank and the Settlements, again? Readers may have had enough of this subject. But these are exceptional times. The adoption by the Security Council of Resolution 2334 on December 23, 2016, the unprecedented speech by Secretary Kerry delivered shortly thereafter, and the immediate rejection of both by Prime Minister Netanyahu, combined with the approach of the fiftieth anniversary of the Six-Day War in June 2017 and the continued march toward an inexorable demographic change in the West Bank, not to mention the nomination as U.S. Ambassador to Israel of a person reportedly supporting an active settlement policy and annexation: the confluence of these events demands our renewed attention. And while these developments undoubtedly have powerful political dimensions, they also call upon those of us who care about international law to speak up in support of its requirements and application.
Les tragiques troubles intérieurs et tensions internes touchent un grand nombre de pays et se multiplient à travers le monde. La situation de nombre de ces pays a été étudiée tant par des organismes des Nations Unies, des agences gouvernementales, des organisations non gouvernementales que, naturellement, par le Comité international de la Croix-Rouge (CICR). Sur la base de tous ces rapports, il serait possible de décrire les symptômes particuliers des troubles intérieurs et des tensions internes dans chacun de ces pays. Le propos du présent document est, au contraire, de dégager les caractéristiques générales des troubles intérieurs et des tensions internes, sans référence à un cas précis, dansla mesure où le compte rendu d'une situation particulière provoque inévitablement des discussions faisant intervenir des données factuelles contradictoires. De tels débats nous détourneraient de notre tâche qui est de mieux connaître la nature des troubles intérieurs et des tensions internes et de proposer les remèdes nécessaires.
Just over sixty years ago, the international community, seeking to heal the wounds of a brutal war, embarked on a bold legal experiment. For the first time in history, legal mechanisms were invoked to bring to justice the perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity in international tribunals specifically established for that purpose. The trials at Nuremberg and Tokyo were extraordinary and risky; and, above all, unique in their time.
