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.

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.

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.

UK protestors question Labor party’s John Prescott about genocide in Gaza

21st September 2014 – John Prescott runs away from questions about the Labour party support for the genocide being carried out in Gaza. G4S hired to protect the delegates at the conference are responsible for Human Rights abuses in Palestine and have an ever increasing role in the privatization of prisons and policing services in the UK.

Palestinian academic Abdalhadi Alijla calls Israel’s military operations in Gaza genocide

The changing of goals of the Israeli operation and the hysterical statements by Israeli officials clearly show that the aim of the operation is not to create deterrence but to destroy the Palestinians in Gaza; humans, infrastructure and buildings. More than 1.800 Palestinian civilians were massacred while only three Israelis were killed. It is a genocide… Not only the UN backed Israel, but also the EU and the European countries. They have been lecturing the world about human rights, democracy, civil rights and other sweet and rosy concepts. However, they failed to condemn, at least officially, the Israeli attacks and the genocide that been committed in Gaza. Europe has failed the Palestinians as human beings, which have nothing to do with the holocaust, based on which Europe in general, and mainly the United Kingdom, have given away what they do not own, displacing the indigenous people.

Bradford meeting: “What Israel is doing in Gaza is genocide—there is no other word for it”

A number of those attending the Socialist Equality Party meeting in Bradford, West Yorkshire on the Israeli attack on Gaza spoke to the World Socialist Web Site… “Things don’t just happen, they are orchestrated. What Israel is doing in Gaza is genocide—there is no other word for it. It is not a combat between equals. In Gaza people are being torn limb from limb by the bombing. In the Holocaust they died in the gas chambers. We were supposed to learn from that.”
