Business boycott: Israelis feeling the pinch
With the threat of EU economic boycotts hanging over Israel, business owners there say they are already starting to feel the pinch and are having to look for other, less lucrative export markets.

“Politicians are cowards” on Israel, says prominent Australian scholar
Samah Sabawi

The Electronic Intifada
14 January 2014

The prominent Australian academic and ethicist Stuart Rees has been targeted by Zionist lobby groups over his calls for a boycott of Israel.

Rees, professor emeritus at the University of Sydney, was awarded the Order of Australia in 2005 for his services to international relations, among other awards recognizing his work.

During 2013, Shurat HaDin, a group of lawyers with close ties to the Israeli government and security services, threatened to sue him.

In a formal complaint, the group alleged that calls for a boycott of Israel made by Rees and Jake Lynch, his colleague at the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS) at the University of Sydney, violated the Australian Racial Discrimination Act.

Although Shurat HaDin does not appear to have acted on its threats against Rees, it has gone ahead with legal action against Lynch.

Refusing to be silenced, Rees has remained active in supporting Palestinian human rights.

Don't kid yourself there are many more but you chose to ignore them at Israel's peril. There are 158 counties around the world out of 190 who are calling for the cessation of the Israeli occupied settlements at the UN. Once the EU gets on board with the sanctions Israel won't know what has hit it

Principles

The Australian Greens believe that:

1.1 support the legitimate rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people to live in peace and security in their own independent, sovereign state
1.2 support the legitimate rights and aspirations of the Israeli people to live in peace and security in their own independent, sovereign state
1.3 recognise the ongoing injustice that has been done to the Palestinian people and aim to rectify that injustice in a way that will allow both Palestinians and Israelis to live in peace
1.4 oppose Israel's ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories and the expropriation of Palestinian land and resources for its settlements
1.5 support negotiations to achieve the democratic aspirations of both peoples within an environment of mutual respect and equality
1.6 demand the protection of human rights in the Palestinian territories and Israel
1.7 reject violence and its promotion, particularly against civilians, whether perpetrated by a state, an organisation or individuals
1.8 oppose all forms of racism, religious or cultural intolerance and discrimination
1.9 call on all parties to comply with United Nations (UN) resolutions, international law, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention.

Goals

The Australian Greens will work for:
2.1 the removal of Israeli settlers and Israeli security and military forces from the Palestinian territories
2.2 the termination of the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the establishment of a secure and viable state of Palestine alongside Israel, based on 4 June 1967 boundaries with both states sharing Jerusalem as their capital
2.3 a just and practical negotiated settlement of the claims of the Palestinian refugees that provides compensation for those who are unable to return to their country of origin, Israel or Palestine
2.4 the right of each state to independently manage its own affairs, including foreign relations and economic development, without the dominance of one state over the other
2.5 the equitable allocation of shared resources, including water
2.6 the promotion of a culture of dialogue, harmony, peace and reconciliation between the peoples of Palestine and Israel, both in the Middle East and in Australia, fostered through educational, cultural and other institutions
2.7 full equality before the laws of each jurisdiction, for every citizen of that jurisdiction, irrespective of ethnic origin, religion or belief, race or gender.

Gee, but Australians fight alongside Americans in every one of our turkey-shoots, dumbo. We love Australians... Real Aussies. We love real Canadians too. You are a disgrace, not only to Westerners, but to all primates.

You have been proven to be an Islamic apologist. You are enabling the Islamic colonization and massacres occuring in Africa. Islam is at war with Islam. Islam is at war with Hindus. Islam is at war with Christians, Jews, Zarathrustans, Seikhs, and Buddhists. Your nonsense is focused on a small part of the global problem and the world no longer buys into it post 9/11. The deception, terror and death caused by Islamic radicals is the world's largest injustice.

.
...and you are an Israeli apologist who turns a blind eye to what Israel has done and what she continues to do in this present time. The Arabs and the Jews are brothers and what you call a small part of a global problem is actually the focus of the whole world's problem. Two thirds of Jews in Israel will be wiped out at the time of the tribulation because of their disbelief in Jesus. They returned to Israel in disbelief and most are anything but believers in God today.By no means do I support Islamic radicals or their methods of trying to install Islam against peoples will. The fact remains it was the Jews who went to a majority held Muslim land and are now crying that they are victims surrounded by their enemies. They should never have been allowed to go there in the first place. All the bull about it being their historical right and yet religious Jews are against the state of Israel because based on the torah stating that they are still in exile until the messiah returns. So as far as nonsense goes look at your own before criticizing mine

I just want to state for the record that I support Israel in their struggle against amorality.

I am an average American. We all feel the same. We know the difference between right and wrong. We were born with what is absent in muslims.... a conscience. That kind of prevents us from lying.

Anyhow, that's what I wanted to say. It's 40 degrees and the people in the lowlands are about to get fck'd by the cruel irony of melting ice.

But I am protected by the grace of Jesus.... And that I'm high...uh....on high-ground.

We have a peculiar affect hereabouts that is called ice-damming. This is something that could fck my life up in ways unimaginable. I'm choosing to think that the temperature will moderate in such a way that we melt, but we don't flood.

Floods are worse than ice.

Conscience? Yeah right!!!! You are one of the most immoral people, who displays a total absence of social conscience and responsibility that I have ever had the misfortune to come across. You personify all that is wrong with America which includes arrogance, a sense of superiority which is undeserved, a sense of entitlement, a lack of empathy to others who are worse of than you and a bigoted, racist outlook which you are proud of
