“No-one - Christian Aid workers or otherwise – was hurt or killed in the bombing of the Near Eastern Council of Churches clinic in January. The clinic itself was completely destroyed, including thousands of pounds worth of equipment. Christain Aid and EU, had both contributed to the supplies and equipment destroyed in the bombing.”

Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu endorses “crippling sanctions” against Iran.

Would you please pursue a policy of crippling sanctions at Westminster & Brussels against Israel including Banning landing of El Al flights, transfer of funds to Israel, embargo on all trade with Israel and non recognition of Israeli visas.

Letter to MEP SW England and to MP Dorchester. 

Only international pressure can make Israel cease its violations of international law and human rights. As Governments have failed to hold Israel accountable, it is up to people of conscience in civil society worldwide to heed Palestinian calls for protection and justice.

Review: “Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide” by Ben White
August 4th, 2009 | by asa |

This book is an excellent “guide for the perplexed”. It is perfect for those new to the subject. I personally will be buying copies and foisting it on friends and relatives. At the same time I was surprised how much a learned from it (particularly about the Palestinian citizens of Israel).

It is not a history book per say, but it is a highly readable journalistic summary of the main events in the history of the occupation, with a big emphasis on the Nakba (the ethnic cleansing of half the population of the Palestinians from their homeland in 1947-48 by Zionist militias and terrorist gangs). The second half of the book is about the reality on the ground right now. It combines interesting (and often shocking) facts and figures with anecdotes from individual Palestinians on the ground: many of whom were recorded in conversations with White himself...........
