Right-wing Zionism, white supremacy and the BDS by David A. Love

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Alan Dershowitz, who spoke at last year’s ZOA gala, has defended Bannon against anti-Semitism charges but has accused Black Lives Matter of anti-Semitism. The Movement for Black Lives platform accuses Israel of genocide against the Palestinians and supports BDS based on Israeli policies such as 50 discriminatory laws against Palestinians, the Israeli detention of Palestinian children as young as 4 years old without due process, the bulldozing of Palestinian homes to make way for illegal Israeli settlements, a US-funded “apartheid wall” and military checkpoints.

Disbelief Over Palestine: Cowardice, Cruelty And Netanyahu by Stuart Rees

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
To jolt the politicians and their media acolytes, I’ll refer to genocide. Such a charge can be justified though it is usually regarded as a form of diplomatic blasphemy, too risky to make.
The 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, refers to any acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group.
Such acts would include killing members of a group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.
Writing in December 2016, in Aljazeera English, the Jewish social analyst Stanley Cohen concluded that each of these genocidal type acts “has been perpetrated by Israel, seemingly with almost proud boast, and no accountability, for almost 70 unbroken years.

Israel’s never-ending crimes: It’s not just settlements by Stanley L Cohen

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

In the presence of overwhelming evidence of premeditated Israeli genocide, to argue otherwise is to reduce the dark, evil and systematic deeds of Stalin, Kissinger, Pol Pot and the Hutu state to little more than a collection of misunderstood happenstance.

Yes, Mr Prime Minister, you should quit while you are ahead. Today, Israel stands charged with violations of the law of occupation. Tomorrow, it might very well, indeed should, find itself seated in a well-deserved international dock on trial for genocide.

Eleven years of protesting Israel’s occupation in Al Jazeera

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Hamdi Abu Rahmah has worked as a photojournalist in the village since the weekly demonstrations began in 2005. Every Friday, he dons a bulletproof vest, helmet and gas mask and documents the protests with his camera. Over the years, he has been invited to European countries to speak about nonviolent resistance in Bilin and other parts of the occupied West Bank.

“In Europe, many people don’t really know about what is happening here. Many people think it’s a war, but it’s not really a war. It’s more like genocide. Taking people’s land, demolishing people’s homes, step-by-step to try and stop the world from noticing what’s happening. Also, many people don’t really understand our problem. Our problem is not with the Jewish people. The problem is with the occupation. That’s why we accept Israelis and Jews to take part in our demonstration.”
