Israel: You Cannot Silence Global Voices for Justice!

BlackList.jpg

On Sunday, January 7, 2018, Israel published a list of organizations whose activists will be barred from entering the country because of their support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement in Palestine. The so-called BDS blacklist was released by the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry. Members of CODEPINK and 19 global organizations that support human rights in Palestine are on the blacklist. 

Included on the list is the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization honored with the 1947 Nobel Peace Prize for assisting and rescuing victims of the Nazis.  It is also one of the first US organizations to stand up against segregation in the United States. The six banned U.S. groups are:

■ American Friends Service Committee
■ American Muslims for Palestine
■ CODEPINK
■ Jewish Voice for Peace
■ National Students for Justice in Palestine
■ US Campaign for Palestinian Rights

Join us in calling on influential US Senators Schumer and Cardin to denounce new Israeli ban on groups support the nonviolent BDS Campaign for Palestinian rights.


Senators Schumer and Cardin:

Israel has just banned 20 organization that support BDS. This is an outrageous attempt to silence global voices that work to stop the oppression and violations of international law against the people of Palestine.  

We call on you, Senators Schumer and Cardin, to say this is unacceptable from a government accepting funds from US taxpayers. Tell Israel to immediately lift the ban. 

Sincerely,

    As a Jewish American, I say no to our massive no-strings attached spending on Israel. Do you believe in free speech? Then stand up for our right to dissent against the actions of apartheid Israel!

    Isreal has no choice it is losing the war for public opinion and with all its lobbyists and money it cannot overcome the reality on the ground.

    Even the UN accuses Israel of having established “an apartheid regime that oppresses and dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.” This apartheid regime has gone on for far too long, and too many Palestinians, their families, friends, colleagues, people who are simply trying to live their lives, have suffered and continue to suffer excessively under Israel’s settlement policy and rejection of Palestinian self-determination. This must stop and the US government should not support Israel’s apartheid nor should it support Israel’s ban on organizations that are standing against Israel’s abuse of human rights.

    Israel’s behavior would not be tolerated from any other country. And, the only way for the Israeli people to live safely and in peace is to require justice from the Israeli leadership.
