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,

    Let’s truly make America Great Again! Not in the form or based on ideas of our current president. The US considers Israel as their number one ally. Billions in our tax dollars make their way to Israel and its oppression of the Palestinian people. Whatever Israel may think is its right to the land should not allow the current government of Israel to treat humans, whose families have lived there for generations, through military occupation. The women and children who are arrested and abused on a daily basis; the walls preventing people from running a normal life; the illegal settlements driving Palestinians from their homes; the checkpoints that humiliate, cause delays and otherwise inconvenience the most basic needs; the general misuse of our Democratic ideals and the on-going Apartheid treatment of half of the population. It is time that America became great again by making it known to the rest of the world that we are against the continuous illegal and violent acts of the Israeli government, and stand with a very large Israeli population who also want peace and rights for the Palestinian people. We can affect peace in Israel and the entire region. It is in our best interest as a nation to do so. The money and and misguided Israeli and Jewish lobby should not result in our country to be looked upon by the entire world as the defender of such a blind and misguided country as Israel clearly is. The sooner we change our policies toward Israel, the sooner there will be peace. It will take courage and forethought to change the dangerous direction America continues in, as it relates to Israel and the region. Be courageous and do what you know is right. Standing by and turning a blind eye to the continued, and blatant acts of violence by the Jewish state is NOT what will make America great again. Being anti-Israeli Government and anti-Zionist does not equate in any way to anti-semetism. That’s absurd and propaganda filled. Stand for the rights of all people; Palestinian deserve your support.
