The occupation of Palestine as a grievance fostering international terrorism is a verboten idea for Israel supporters. Secretary of State John Kerry is being trolled on this question by the neoconservative Elliott Abrams.

"To visitors from all over the world, Israel puts its flag with the Jewish star atop a facility famous for the detention of Palestinian protesters. Is this really what Jews want to be known for? Shouldn’t American Jews be pushing for Israel to become a secular society? "

Hardly an idea that is put on the to-do-list of the Zionists.

Kerry has the guts to speak the truth about the need of a Palestinian statehood and on the November attacks in Paris, and the State Department and the White House retreat just because some big-mouth pro-Israel journalist trumpets his own idea? I hope Kerry ignores the loudmouths and continues to push the truth, Because he may not be heard in America, I'm sure we hear him over here.

TAKE ACTION: Tell the UN to drop its contracts with Israeli Occupation prison contractor G4S.

G4S is a private security company that provides services and equipment to Israeli occupation prisons at which Palestinian political prisoners, including children, are held without trial and tortured.

Since the start of October, Israeli occupation forces have arrested more than 1,800 Palestinians including 300 children as a way to repress Palestinian popular resistance. Many of these prisoners are being held in prisons G4S is helping Israel to run.

G4S has also been criticised for its role in violent abuse taking place in the prisons and detention centres it runs in South Africa, the US and the UK, and in numerous deaths in custody.

Despite G4S' role in human rights abuses in Palestine and across the world, the UN is contracting G4S to provide it with security services worth more than US$22 million each year. In doing so, the UN is contradicting its own stated contracting principles and turning a blind eye to the role that G4S plays in Israel's oppression of Palestinians and in human rights abuses all over the world.

G4S has already lost contracts with businesses and universities across the world; the Gates Foundation, Columbia University, United Church of Christ, and United Methodist Church have divested from the company. G4S now says it might consider ending its role in Israel’s prison system, which is all the more reason we need to keep the pressure up.

Join Palestinian prisoners rights group Addameer and organisations across the world in calling on the UN to drop its contracts with G4S.
