The Deluded Netanyahu Response.
For some reason the BDS thing has become the new supposed “threat to Israel. Netanyahu came up with the ever reliable complete inversion of the truth in his interpretation of what is a small and haphazard movement that has made no discernible economic impact on Israel.
Stating that “The attacks on the Jews were always preceded by the slander of the Jews. What was done to the Jewish people then is being done to the Jewish state now,” Netanyahu said, also alluding laughably to “the defamation of the Jewish people” before heroically concluding that “”In those days we could do nothing. Today we can speak our mind, hold our ground. We’re going to do both.”
The really hilarious thing is that the Boycott Israel movement does not resemble that of the Nazi’s at all but it does bear a strong resemblance to the Jewish Boycott of Nazi Germany that began in 1933.
Along with the more recent case of South Africa.
The Legal Position is Clear.
There is quite simply no doubt that Israel has been running an apartheid system in the West Bank for almost fifty years.
The expropriation of the land that belongs to Arab citizens of Palestine by Jewish settlers is a proven fact.
The illegal nature of the entire Settlement project in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Golan Heights cannot be disputed. The full text of the relevant International Law governing the protection of civilians can be read here.
The summary from the Red Cross makes this matter plain.
“Prohibited actions include forcibly transferring protected persons from the occupied territories to the territory of the occupying power.”
“It is unlawful under the Fourth Geneva Convention for an occupying power to transfer parts of its own population into the territory it occupies. This means that international humanitarian law prohibits the establishment of settlements, as these are a form of population transfer into occupied territory. Any measure designed to expand or consolidate settlements is also illegal. Confiscation of land to build or expand settlements is similarly prohibited.”
Israel is therefore in violation of at least two key tenets of the Fourth Geneva Convention, the transfer of the Israeli civilian population into the West Bank is illegal. The expropriation of land, any land is also completely illegal, The building of structures to house the illegally transferred civilian population is also illegal.
Therefore, in my opinion we have a duty to our fellow human beings in Palestine to oppose the breaches of International Law perpetrated against them by the criminal Zionist state. The fact that the perpetrators of the crimes hide behind crimes committed against their relatives in the middle of the past century is irrelevant. The idea that crimes committed by Europeans in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s somehow justify other crimes committed in the Middle East in the second decade of the 21st century is simply laughable, and speaks to the deceptive and despicable nature of the entire Zionist movement since inception. Israel’s crimes are not crimes because they are being committed by Jewish people acting under the banner of Jewish nationalism, they are crimes because they are clearly, obvious and flagrant breaches of International Law.
Friends of Israel.
The maniacal support of this evil from buffoons such as Canadian PM Stephen Harper only reveals these political harlots as being utterly wicked, venal and corrupt to the very core. Any attempts to protect the criminal Zionist state from criticism should see the likes of Harper prosecuted at the UN for the breach of the Civil and Political rights of Canadians as outlined in Article 19 of the UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of which as a UN member, Canada is a signatory.
