Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Benjamin Netanyahu

“To millions, hundreds of millions or more, Israel is everything Nazi Germany is purported to have been. There were no photos of German citizens cheering the death camps. It took 21st century Israel to push Hitler into obscurity.”

Gordon Duff

“They want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can. They use telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause. They want the more dead, the better.”

Israel’s spy leaders call for peace: ‘The Gatekeepers’

Spy leaders discus need for peace, point out not only is it possible to target individual terrorists it was the standard. Until now.

1shot2killsA sobering celebration and mockery of dead Palestinian children. The words have been translated for The Electronic Intifada by Dena Shunra:

Tibi – Ahmed Tibi
I wanted you to know
The next kid to be hurt will be your kid
I hate Tibi
I hate Tibi the terrorist.
Tibi – is dead!
Tibi – is dead!
Tibi – is dead!

Tibi is a terrorist.
Tibi is a terrorist.
Tibi is a terrorist.

They’ll take their papers away.

Olé, olé, olé-olé-olé
In Gaza there’s no studying
No children are left there,
Olé, olé, olé-olé-olé,

[Three lines, not entirely clear]

Who is getting nervous, I hear?
Zoabi, this here is the Land of Israel
This here is the Land of Israel, Zoabi
This here is the Land of the Jews
I hate you, I do, Zoabi
I hate all the Arabs.
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard
Gaza is a graveyard

UN Official Breaks Down Crying Live on Air

For Chris Gunness, a spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which has numerous facilities in Gaza, it’s all too much. This is the sixth time UNRWA sites have been hit during Israel’s current campaign. He broke down sobbing during an interview, footage of which was screened by Al Jazeera Arabic. Published on Jul 30, 2014. In second video and third still, a grief-stricken Palestinian father begs child to wake up as he “got him some toys and some things,” but is pulled away by medical staff. Child was hit with Israeli sniper fire.

THIS IS NOT ISRAEL HITTING A HUMAN SHIELD. IT IS TARGETED INFANTICIDE.

Growing up Christian one of the first things I learned was that Jews were basically better than us. We learned that in church. If you believe in a Chosen People you believe in a master race, a race that will lead us spiritually and politically. Is that not the modern Christian paradigm? Have we not been indoctrinated to believe that the very act of questioning Israeli policies means questioning the will of God?

The World at War, Oradour-sur-Glane Opening

The Nazis believed that if you killed one German, they could kill an entire village. Oradour-sur-Glane is one example. In retaliation for the killing of one Nazi officer 642 French civilians were massacred. How is it that we could believe that three murdered Israelis justifies the genocide of over 1,800 Palestinians? Over 80% of the dead, according to the UN, are innocent men, women and children. It is no different than lobbing a grenade in a room packed with ten people to kill two targets. The obvious conclusion, by anyone capable of reasoning, is that you mean for all of them to die.

We equated Judaism with Zionism, so criticizing the latter meant you are anti-Semitic. Of course, we could not be more wrong. One is a religion, the other is an ultra-nationalist Israeli policy. Anton Chaitkin wrote prophetically:

“…a strong potential now exists for members of all faiths and ethnic groups to think about and to solve a central problem of our era: Fanatical Zionists are urged on by Anglo-American backers, to brutalize and displace Arab residents and Muslim religious institutions from Israeli occupied territory.

“Among the Anglo-Saxons cheering them on in their blind racialism are many known as ‘fundamentalist Christians.‘ They have seen a vision of Semitic warfare in the Holy Land, ending in mankind’s annihilation, which they cheer as ‘Gods will’ and ‘Bible Prophesy.’ This madness has been called the British balance-of-power strategy. But its familiar name is, British Freemasonry.”

Though I was never a fanatical or fundamentalist Christian, that belief in man’s annihilation in the Holy Land as “God’s will” still applied to me and virtually every Christian I knew and still know. Chaitkin wrote that not in 2014 but 1992.

Children-Killed-on-Gaza-Beach-640x394 So it is not just the Zionist media that– with Gitmo-like abandon– is force-feeding us the false narrative of Israeli victimization by “telegenic” murdered children, it is also the mainstream Christian community that buys into the notion that, frankly, Jews are better than us because they are the Chosen Race; because Jesus was not only a Jew, but the King of the Jews. It is a dangerous subservience that allows for an exception to the rule in minds otherwise offended by racism. We are not better, or less than the Jews. We are all in the brotherhood of man. “Telegenic” is Benjamin Netanyahu’s own word.

Even the Bible paints a picture of a fallible people, fallible as any other people. There are numerous instances where God turned his back on the Jews and cursed them for generations, and if Christians remember, wasn’t it Jesus who said to the Jews:

“Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’ Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘FALL ON US,’ and to the hills, ‘COVER US.’…For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

Peace-protest-in-Israel

Peace protest in Israel. The unheard voice of peaceful Jews.

Peace protest in Israel. The unheard voice of peaceful Jews.Yet the media and religious indoctrination is profound.

The village of Oradour-sur-Glane was never rebuilt as a reminder. It is, however, a reminder that has been forgotten as the same thing is happening in Gaza with western blessings.

When Benjamin Netanyahu is called a Nazi, it is extremely offensive to him not because it is an ad hominem attack but because it is true. Demonstrably true. He is doing the same thing the Nazis did, on the same premise that one dead member of his particularly “superior” race justifies the slaughter of countless “subhumans,” in this case Arabs. He’s not just wiping out a village though. The photos you see here have been posted in an earlier entry, but they are shown again to bring the following to mind: If a Master Race did this to the French in 1944, a Chosen People can do this in Gaza, and will continue to do so. All we have to do is believe in the supremacy of one race, The Chosen People, over another. I’m not just talking about Palestinians, I’m talking about all of us.

In the past, Israel had absolutely no problem targeting individual Hamas leaders. They used cell phone bombs. You would hear about assassinated Hamas leaders all the time, and no shelling was ever involved. This is a punitive action, a reprisal massacre against innocent targets. It is literally no different than what happened to the French in Oradour-sur-Glane, or to the Americans in Malmedy.

373194_Gaza-mourners-640x359Christians have been misguided long enough. Zionism is not Judaism, and everyone of conscience not only has a right to question these atrocities but an obligation. Often the mainstream media blurs out the faces of the victims in the Gaza massacres to avoid “upsetting” viewers. The truth is, every time a face is blurred you no longer see a human being, and that is absolutely intentional. Have you ever seen Holocaust victims with their faces blurred out? We gave them the humanity they deserved, and it’s time we do the same to the Palestinians.

Get involved today and help to build the international BDS movement against Israel’s regime of occupation, colonialism and apartheid.

1. Boycott goods of Israeli companies as well as international companies involved in Israel’s human rights violations

The most basic step is to stop buying products and services of Israeli companies and, whenever feasible, of international companies involved in Israel’s human rights violations. Try to encourage your friends, family and community to join you in doing so.

It differs from country to country, but the most common Israeli exports include:

– fresh fruit and vegetables such as Jaffa citrus fruits and Israeli Medjoul Dates
– Ahava cosmetics
– SodaStream drinks machines
– Eden Springs bottled water

– Golan Heights Wineries and other Israeli wines

There are many international companies that are complicit in Israeli violations of international law. Examples include HP, Caterpillar, Volvo, Hyundai, among many others.

Trying to boycott the products of every single company that participates in Israeli apartheid is a daunting task that has a slim change of having a concrete impact.

It makes more sense to focus on optimal targets that are being targeted as part of national or international campaigns. Consumer boycotts are most effective when part of a broader campaign against a particular product or aiming to pressure a retailer to stop selling a particular Israeli product.

Get in contact with a BDS organisation in your area to find out what companies and products are being targeted and how to support local campaigns. If no such organization exists, start your own campaign, in coordination with well-recognized BDS organizations.

  1. Follow us on social media and help spread the word

There are new BDS successes and developments nearly every day. Help to magnify the impact of the BDS movement by following us on Twitter and Facebook and sharing news of BDS successes on social media.

You can also sign up for our regular newsletter and email updates.

  1. Learn more and share information about the BDS movement

Check out and consider sharing the pages in the Learn section of this website, including theIntroduction to BDS, and the list of successes and timeline of the BDS movement since 2005.

You can Tweet about the BDS movement and follow developments using the hashtag #BDS.

  1. Get involved in your area

There are vibrant organisations and campaigns in towns and cities all over the world that make an enormous contribution to boycott campaigns and the BDS movement as a whole.

Enter your details into our Get involved with a local BDS campaign form to be put in touch with a nearby group and start getting involved in local campaigning today.

  1. Take action online

Online petitions and letter writing actions can be an important part of building pressure, especially when they are part of vibrant local campaigning too.

Check out bdsmovement.net/takeaction to find out about on-going online actions. If you have your own suggestions for BDS campaigns, please share them with us through email.

  1. Campaign against your own community’s complicity in Israel’s violations of international law

Israel is only able to maintain its occupation and apartheid system because of the massive, unconditional support it receives from international governments, companies and institutions, such as universities.

Get in touch for ideas on how to research and campaign against links between your local community and the companies and institutions that enable Israel’s occupation and apartheid policies. Divesting pension or investment funds from companies involved in Israel’s human rights violations is a major component in many such campaigns.

  1. Encourage an organisation you are a member of to endorse BDS

All across the world, trade unions, student unions, NGOs, faith groups and other organisations are getting behind the BDS movement, launching their own BDS campaigns and divesting any shares they hold in Israeli companies or international companies such as Veolia, G4S and HP that are implicated in Israeli occupation and apartheid.

Persuading a union or association that you are a member of to endorse the Palestinian civil society’s BDS call can be a long-term project but is a particularly effective way to reach large numbers of people and build mainstream support for the boycott movement.

  1. Organise a boycott action at a retailer that sells Israeli goods

Boycott actions such as a protest or creative flashmob can be a great way to build awareness and support for the boycott of Israel and to pressure a retailer to stop stocking a particular product or Israeli goods in general.

Check out CODEPINK’s guide to organising a creative boycott action targeting Israeli cosmetics company Ahava. The guide works well for actions targeting other complicit products and companies too.
