The bloody history of the Balfour Declaration by Matthew Clifton

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 1937 at the Peel Commission, Churchill stated that the Balfour Declaration would make Palestine an overwhelmingly Jewish stated. Essentially advocating the genocide and forced migration of the Palestinian people… Since the declaration of independence, 70 years on the Israeli government continue their campaign of genocide against the Palestinian people and there are more than 5 million Palestinian refugees living in camps across Palestinian territories, Lebanon and Jordan, and in Syria.

UK joining Israel in celebrations is shameful by Tariq A. Al Maeena

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.

Last Thursday, the UK Prime Minister Theresa May was doling out compliment after another to the Israeli delegation attending the event to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, a move that displaced Palestinians from their own lands and made way for European Jews to occupy Arab lands. Speaking at a dinner function, May said that Britain is ‘proud of our pioneering role in the creation of the state of Israel’ adding that she was proud ‘of the relationship we have built with Israel.’

… More than 3,500 civilians had lost their lives, a sizeable portion of whom were women and children. Some 17,000 Gazans were injured and more than 100,000 left homeless. Michael Ratner of the Centre for Constitutional Rights aptly termed Israel’s planned ethnic cleansing and massacres of Palestinians “incremental genocide.” And their retribution for the crime against them? The perpetrators of the genocide get felicitated at a dinner reception hosted by no less than the UK prime minister in recognition of their fine efforts, while their victims slide into anonymity.

David Cameron staunchly supported Israel’s genocide: Weapon sales Not in millions but billions on Adonis Diaries

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.
David Cameron has offered the UK’s support to Israel in response to ‘appalling’ attacks carried out by Hamas. “The Prime Minister reiterated the UK’s staunch support for Israel in the face of such attacks, and underlined Israel’s right to defend itself from them.” Netanyahu has warned that Hamas will pay a “heavy price” for the rocket attacks and at least 47 people have been killed by Israeli air strikes in Gaza since yesterday, according to Palestinian officials. Britain admits selling $12 billion in weapons to Israel.

Palestinians face genocide, fighting for freedom. Join SPSC by Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign

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.

The challenge is huge; Scottish and UK weapons continue to flow to the Israeli military. As with any other settler-colonial project, extreme violence and a tendency to genocide is built-in to Zionism. The Egyptian dictatorship matches its Israeli ally in brutality, preventing Palestinians from escaping the Gaza concentration zone. Only a united and determined campaign linking and organising across Scotland, the UK and internationally can hope to defeat Israel’s genocidal plans. SPSC aims to play its part in building it. Join us in that endeavour.

An Open Letter to Boris Johnson and to the British Public, from Israeli Citizens Who Support Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel

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.

As citizens of Israel, we have little hope for a change from within. We fear the worst has yet to come for the Palestinian people, with all those living here paying the price. In Gaza, campaigns of mass killing have been pursued time and again, with the residents regarded as guinea-pigs in a hi-tech weapons lab. We are also extremely concerned about the rise of extrajudicial executions in the West Bank, including in hospitals and lynch mobs within the 67 borders, stirred by Israeli officials who have encouraged the Jewish population to take up arms and shoot-to-kill Palestinians.

We are concerned by genocidal statements issued by senior members of the Israeli government. We call on the British public to heed our warning and respond to the 2005 Palestinian civil society call for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). We do not raise this alarm lightly, and we urge concerned citizens all over the world to take action now – boycott, divest and disinvest from, and sanction Israel until it complies with international law and conventions, ends its military occupation and apartheid policies, and grants indigenous Palestinian refugees their full rights by acknowledging international law.

British Student Union Votes To Boycott Israel Over Palestinian Genocide by Americans.com

Despite Israel’s massive propaganda efforts across global media outlets, the world is starting to take notice of the appalling atrocities the state is committing against Palestinians, in what has become an act of genocide. The latest indicator that the world is taking a tougher stance on the country, is that the UK’s National Union of Students passed a motion Tuesday to join worldwide efforts to boycott Israel over violations of Palestinian human rights.

YouthDebates.com forum: Israel Guilty of Genocide?

“Saw this article on BBC News where an activist group has released a report suggesting that Israeli forces in the 2014 Gaza War were told not to discriminate between any Palestinians. Therefore this suggests that Israel observes every Palestinian as its enemy. Would this suggest factors of genocide in Israeli policy regarding Palestine? all presuming this reports correct and accurate”

Artists from around United Kingdom rally to Palestinian cause

“We absolutely cannot plead ignorance of the fact that this is genocide of the Palestinian people. The one-sided, often blatantly wrong reportage in the west is not just about bad journalism and ugly domestic agendas this sort of response to injustice to protect the economic and political status quo fosters a loveless world. If the footage of wounded children and their desperate parents, bombings of schools and funerals that reaches us every few hours, can’t open our hearts and show us the consequences of apathy and playing political over human agendas then it is a scary time we live in,” Rita Kalnejais, theatre and film writer was quoted as saying.

“Is this not evidence enough to merit a very thorough and impartial investigation into the possibility that Israel does not want to end its occupation of Gaza (or the rest of Palestine) and that this captive population is being destroyed with intent?”

15 October, 2014

To whom this concerns

As a citizen of a UN member state, I wish to demand action on the recent attack on Gaza by Israel.

As a background to the violence, I wish to note and remind that the people of Gaza are not only being collectively punished through siege but denied even the most basic of human rights such as freedom of movement, access to health care, education, nutrition, clean water, the right to make a living and have personal security. Most of the people of Gaza are refugees who are still being denied their right of return decades after expulsions by zionist militia.

The global audience was exposed to entire apartment blocks being leveled to the ground with families sleeping inside, UN schools attacked while women and children sought shelter, children blown to pieces while playing on a beach, vital infrastructure purposefully damaged such as hospitals and rescue crews attacked, allegations of deliberate assassinations even of a disabled girl, entire neighbourhoods obliterated. My list is by no means exhaustive as this serves merely as giving brief examples.

Is this not evidence enough to merit a very thorough and impartial investigation into the possibility that Israel does not want to end its occupation of Gaza (or the rest of Palestine) and that this captive population is being destroyed with intent? Many examples exist of top Israeli figures in the political and academic world who used racist incitement to argue for the destruction of Gaza.

I am dismayed that the United Nations whose purpose it is to protect and advance humanity is not extending this responsibility to cover the Palestinian people and their long walk to freedom. I urge the United Nations to bring justice to a people who have suffered catastrophe through mass murder and expulsions and attacks on their culture and basic rights. If the people of Israel and Palestine are to have any hope of a peaceful, mutually beneficial future, it must be built upon justice and done so immediately. Too much time and too many lives have been lost already. Please support ‘never again’.

Yours faithfully
Monique Buckner
England
