Anti-Semitism and Labour: Muzzling free speech silences rightful criticism of Israel by Ahmad Tibi

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.

It gives me no pleasure to write this, but it must be clearly stated for the record: of late, top Israeli political and religious leaders have even incited genocide against the Palestinian people. Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef ruled in March that non-Jewish people, including Palestinians, have no right to live in the country.

… Most worrisome, this racist rhetoric is increasingly influencing the Israeli public, shifting it further and further to the far right. What human rights horrors could this lead to, if left unchecked?

In Israel, Growing Fascism and a Racism Akin to Early Nazism by Zeev Sternhell

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.
According to the concepts of Smotrich, Zohar and Shaked, a Jew from Brooklyn who has never set foot in this country is the legitimate owner of this land, while a Palestinian whose family has lived here for generations is a stranger, living here only by the grace of the Jews. “A Palestinian,” Zohar tells Hecht, “has no right to national self-determination since he doesn’t own the land in this country. Out of decency I want him here as a resident, since he was born here and lives here – I won’t tell him to leave. I’m sorry to say this but they have one major disadvantage – they weren’t born as Jews.”
From this one may assume that even if they all converted, grew side-curls and studied Torah, it would not help. This is the situation with regard to Sudanese and Eritrean asylum seekers and their children, who are Israeli for all intents and purposes. This is how it was with the Nazis. Later comes apartheid, which could apply under certain circumstances to Arabs who are citizens of Israel. Most Israelis don’t seem worried.

Video: Protests disrupt Vienna talk by Israeli genocide advocate Ayelet Shaked by Ali Abunimah

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.

Shaked had been invited as part of a regular event, the “Distinguished Lecture Series.”

The university added: “Following their lectures, we invite our guest lecturers to enter into a dialogue with the expert audience and hold a controversial, open discussion within the framework of the academic discourse. These discussions do not represent an identification with our guests’ theses but rather serve as a forum for discussion.”

The university effectively normalizes the view disseminated by Shaked that the slaughter of mothers for the purpose of preventing births in a specific population group – an act that fits precisely within the international legal definition of genocide – is an appropriate topic for “academic discussion.”

Acceptance of such terms for “dialogue” normalizes the genocidal thesis Shaked endorsed.

Angry protesters greet Israeli justice minister in Berlin (i24News, 2015)

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.

Left-wing activists and BDS supporters gathered outside the Justice ministry, where Shaked opened a conference titled “Democracy and the Rule of Law,” with German Minister of Justice Heiko Maas… “She was talking about genocide, and in Germany, her statements would probably have landed her in jail,” said Iris Hefets of “Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East,” which organized the rally alongside several BDS groups. The organization also sent letters to the heads of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, urging then to reconsider their decision to host a dinner in honor of Shaked.

Letter from America: When paranoia rules, everything seems so kosher! by Dr. Habib Siddiqui

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.

It is not difficult to connect the extra-judicial criminal activities of the Jewish settlers and the IDF against the Palestinian civilians with the toxic religious indoctrination that they have been receiving from hateful Rabbis. Let’s also not forget why they feel so untouchable for such crimes. They have their patron as the head of the government. Lest we forget most of the support for the rogue government of Benjamin Netanyahu actually comes from these extremist Jews who consider killing Palestinian a religious duty in the occupied territories.

Netanyahu’s apartheid regime is criminally silent on the crimes of his fellow settlers, and their Rabbis who justify violence against unarmed Palestinians. Israeli “justice” minister Ayelet Shaked (who slandered Palestinian children in genocidal terms as “little snakes” during last year’s war on the Gaza Strip) and a former deputy-speaker of the Knesset have openly called for genocide against Palestinians (he called for all Palestinians to be forced out of Gaza and put in “encampments,” where they would be “concentrated.”). And there are many more members within the government and the Knesset that have called for such extermination campaigns against Palestinians.
