Call your Senate Finance Committee member against anti-BDS bill

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) is expected to introduce an amendment to a bill in the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday that would demand that the Obama Administration pressure Europe not to enforce policies against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. The amendment is expected to be similar to S. 619 which Cardin introduced March 2. Similar legislation (HR 825) was introduced in the House on February 10.

Both bills target actions to "limit commercial relations" with "territories controlled by Israel." By equating "Israeli settlements in the West Bank" with "Israel," these bills are endorsing the Israeli annexation of the West Bank.

These bills are trying to pressure the European Union (EU), which is currently negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with the United States, to reverse course on the steps it has taken in recent years to oppose Israeli settlements in the West Bank. These include new guidelines preventing entities operating in Israeli-occupied territory from receiving EU funding and a recent push to label settlement products entering the EU.

One of your Senators is on the Senate Finance Committee and is expected to vote on Cardin's amendment TOMORROW. You can look up which Senator here: http://www.finance.senate.gov/about/membership/

Call your Senator on the Finance Committee NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say:


I urge Sen. __________ to oppose the amendment Sen. Cardin plans to introduce tomorrow in the Finance Committee that seeks to block Europe from limiting commercial relations with Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Nazi boycott of Jews failed. Arab boycott of Israel failed. This Islamist-Arab-Leftist boycott of Israel is failing and will fail to.

I am not giving this spread of hate against Israel any support. Instead of thinking on how to harm Israel, Arabs should start thinking on how to improve their lives in ALL Arab countries they are living in.

For Palestinians ,it really doesn't matter . We all know who controls the two houses of congress beside the white house > AIPAC bribes them all. Will this stop Palestinians struggle against the ZioNazist occupation/ Of course not. The end of occupation will happen sooner or later and ZioNazists will leave Palestine at the end of the day sooner or later the same way crusaders did . Read history.

YAWN !

Here we see the usual unimaginative and unamusing Palestine hate obsession who support the murder of civilians and the theft of land.

It was not Palestinians that arrived armed to the teeth to murder Jews in 1948.
It was not Palestinians who attacked the USS Liberty,
It was not Palestinians who illegally occupied the West Bank.
It was not Palestinians who attacked Lebanon to steal water.
It was not Palestinians that built illegal nuclear weapons and threatened Europe with the Samson Option.
It was not Palestinians who ran over Rachel Corrie with a bulldozer.
It was not Palestinians who used US weapons to murder 2.100 people in Gaza last year, nor murdered 1.500 defenceless people during the war crime called 'Cast Lead'.

The Israelis were armed with hoes, picks, shovels, and great intelligence.
The Americans forgot to fly a flag.
The west bank is not *occupied* and Israel's position is not illegal.
Israel built desalinization facilities.
Israel has no *illegal* nuclear weapons and has NEVER threatened Europe.
Rachel Corrie committed suicide (*martyrdom*).
No, it was hamas who indirectly (and DIRECTLY) murdered Israeli civilians and soldiers, and palestinians, by using iranian/syrian rockets and arms....and human shields. Ditto Cast Lead for which palestinians are already under prosecution.

Tell whoever is typing for you to stop reading comic books.

@Barbara D: .."Rachel Corrie committed suicide.."

Appalling disrespect and slanderous character assassination - disgusting, shameful and false!

This is completely false, a complete disregard for the facts and tragic death of Rachel Corrie and beyond contemptible.

Such malicious attacks, do not surprise me .. Conscience is lacking in narcissistic personalities, and bullies, tend to be cowardly.
Intended to incite, and all the more, contemptible, unworthy of attention.

Truth and dignity, however, must be voiced, in the face of such obvious, contemptible, hypocrisy and bigotry.

Quote of the day:
"The nature of the Jewish settlement in the city and its way of action smear and disgrace the entire Israeli society.”

Monday February 9, 2015

Quote of the day:
"These data prove that the Netanyahu government continued in 2014 to energetically promote the End of Days vision of an apartheid state, where settlements are built simultaneously all over the West Bank, and millions of Palestinians live as second-class citizens in the enclaves between them.”
--Researcher Dror Etkes, who heads the Peace Now settlement tracking project, on the government plan to make major expansions of four settlements.**

--Maariv's security analyst Yossi Melman sums up Israel's security challenges of 2014, writing that Hamas is no longer a terror organization and that without a peace agreement two things can happen - and neither of them is good.**

Here we see the usual unimaginative and unamusing Palestine hate obsession who support the murder of civilians and the theft of land.

It was Palestinian Arabs, together with armies of other SEVEN ARAB States that arrived armed to the teeth to murder Jews in 1948.
It was Arab extremists who attacked US barracks in Beirut, killing 273 sailors and not accepting the guilt and not paying compensation to the victims, like Israel did for USS Liberty,
Many Palestinians illegally occupy Israelis lands on the West Bank.
It was Palestinians under Arafat who attacked Israel from Lebanon, without inventing excuses about stealing water.
It was Palestinians and Arab League and Iran who want to use any tools they have to destroy Israel. Iran has built illegal nuclear weapons and threatened Europe, US and their allies.
It was Palestinians who placed useful idiot Rachel Corrie in front of a bulldozer at the war zone.
It was Palestinians who used US, Russian and Iranian weapons to bomb and attack Israeli civilians for seven years, until 'Cast Lead' was done to calm them down.
It was Palestinians who fooled mentally sick and minors to conduct suicide bombings of Israelis cafes to earn Islamist Paradise, with 72 virgins to each freedom fighter - at no charge.

Free Palestine! End the siege on Gaza!!
Let freedom ring!!

End the occupation of Palestine and the siege of Gaza, now!!
BDS, yes!


"The International Day Of Solidarity With The Palestinian People", Pretoria (4 December 1997}.

"I have come to join you today to add our own voice to the universal call for Palestinian self-determination and statehood. We would be beneath our own reason for existence as government and as a nation, if the resolution of the problems of the Middle East did not feature prominently on our agenda.

When in 1977, the United Nations passed the resolution inaugurating the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, it was asserting the recognition that injustice and gross human rights violations were being perpetrated in Palestine. In the same period, the UN took a strong stand against apartheid; and over the years, an international consensus was built, which helped to bring an end to this iniquitous system.

We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians; without the resolution of conflicts in East Timor, the Sudan and other parts of the world.
