I only wish this video would go viral and the US would do something about endorsing sanctions against Israel.

The speaker is passionate and riveting in his presentation, has his "facts straight", and obviously cares about making a differences and speaking out against Israel's fascists policies.

His condemnation of these horrendous acts of barbarism by Israel are thankfully noted.

Thank you! I have also also posted this, on Facebook! I hope that other Councils, will follow! Please whilst we are on the subject of, sanctioning Israel. Does anyone know the British Bar Code Prefix, for Israeli goods please? I know that the Americans use a Bar Coding System, called EAN! But I can not remember what our similar system, is called! However, all Israeli goods are Bar Coded 729, in America!

On a positive note, Presbyterians canceled planned boycott and re-drafted their Palestine-related resolution to be more even-balanced.

Bristol can do what they want at the time when the trade between Israel and Arab states grew up almost three times up, with all due respect to all those boycotts, initiated by the Arab extremist states.

Bob - just to keep the flow of conversation going as i ma sure you have considered this - Why can you not see this model supports the people of both sides as it reduces the need for violent resistance - it perhaps affects the goverment of one Where do you loyalties lie with the peoples and their lives and saftey or the big wigs and their bank ballances ??

Pete, I respect property of all people without differentiating them into big and small. Noone like to be ripped off of his possessions.

And I totally disagree with the call to boycott Israel for things, that other countries did much more and were not even blamed! Quwait expelled 400,000 Palestinians working and living there for years, and nobody asked to boycott Quwait. Jordan and Syria killed tens of thousands of Palestinians, and UN did not vote hundreds of times on resolutions condemning them, like UN did for Israel.

I am not a supporter of this anti-Israeli hypocrisy and find it very annoying.

Those are perhaps fair examples, of things that have been left undone.I am unsure of the history here, but I shall accept your word as you may be better aware of these attrocities - all I can reassure you with is -we are here now - trying to help to find a way to level out the playing field -the people of Palestine are being unfairly (illegally ?)sanctioned by the international community and in response to that biased appproach the people of the world also feel a need to help now -as perhaps both influential members of each side have not been able to make a true resolution.But yes the Un I agree has overlooked many things due to the nature of how it has to operate Hence why the people of the world are now getting involved not to hurt or harm one side or the other. We Also find many things, as you Say annoying - the frustrations of new settlement contually being built even though the knesset heads promised us - as people - they would cease But we hope to end hostilites and that can only be achieve with the removal of all sancions and restrictions which do not reflect the objectives they origianlly were set to aim towards. whe israel stops it restricions we shall support her developement as much as the Palestinain development
peace be with you and thank you for sharing your veiws and concerns. But please do not think we are not anti anything - perhaps anti stubborness
