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.

LETTER: Holocaust atrocities do not justify Israel’s attacks on Palestinians on Business Day

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.

Palestinians are merely following the example of Polish Jews during the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising, who so courageously resisted German Nazis. Israel’s recurring wars against the people of Gaza, including the currently termed Operation Breaking Dawn launched on August 5, clearly highlight the parallels between the Warsaw Ghetto and Gaza as an Israeli concentration camp. Allan Wolman’s repeated smears of everything South African ignore the reality that Israel is an apartheid state that is guilty of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

LETTER: Israel will reach its tipping point by Gunvant Govindjee

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.

Notwithstanding Israeli propaganda, there is a growing international awareness of Israel’s destruction of more than 500 Palestinian villages over a period of two years (1947-1949), its cruel expulsion of the majority of people of historical Palestine, its refusal to grant them the right of return, its blatant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, its brutal occupation of Palestinian territories since 1967, its acquiescence of the continued theft of Palestinian property by settlers, its connivance in the destruction of Palestinian crops and property, its incremental genocide, and its extreme and questionable methods to achieve the Zionification of East Jerusalem.

LETTER: Two apartheid states and their crises of legitimacy by Gunvant Govindjee on Business Day

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 1948, Zionists proclaimed the settler-colonial state of Israel which too, as in the case of the Union of SA, received de jure recognition despite the fact that it was created as a result of the dispossession and mass expulsion of the indigenous population. However, Israel’s brutal occupation of the West Bank, its merciless siege of Gaza, its continued theft of Palestinian land and water resources, its settlement construction, its large-scale detention and imprisonment of Palestinians, and its practice of “incremental genocide” (a term used by a Jewish and non-Zionist academic, Ilan Pappe), continue to erode support for Israel and thus its legitimacy.

LETTER: Kaye denies Israeli genocide by Terry Crawford-Browne

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.

Zionist propagandist Sydney Kaye is apoplectic that Israeli government conduct towards Palestinians is increasingly acknowledged internationally as meeting the legal criteria of genocide, plus apartheid and war crimes.

LETTER: World has a moral duty to speak out against Palestinians’ suffering by Gunvant Govindjee

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.

Palestinians are experiencing a slow genocide, and the world has a moral responsibility to make its voice heard against the perpetrators of this violence and brutality. Local vs international protests in the face of injustice should not be an either/or option.

LETTER: Palestine campaign is no more antisemitic than Black Sash was anti-white by Terry Crawford-Browne

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.

While the term “apartheid” originated in SA it now also applies under international law to other countries, such as Israel, that systematically discriminate against Palestinians. The Israeli government is also guilty of genocide and war crimes as defined by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which all European governments, as well as our own, are obligated to enforce.

LETTER: Correct move on nuclear weapons treaty by Terry Crawford-Browne

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.

Without compunction, the Israeli government commits genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes against Palestinians, and mistakenly thinks it can get away with such thuggery.
