Rabbi Yitzhak yosef

Stephardic Chief Rabbi, ethnic cleanser, Yitzhak Yosef

The Israeli chief Sephardic rabbi, Yitzhak Yosef,  told a gathering of followers that non-Jews should be expelled from Israel [....] The only exception, he said, would be in the cases of non-Jews who accepted the seven Noahide laws.

Fatma Samoura, General Secretary

Tokyo Sexwale, Chair, Monitoring Committee Israel-Palestine

Dear Mr. Infantino, Ms. Samoura and Mr. Sexwale,

We are writing again about the six Israeli football teams based in illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. FIFA has allowed this situation to continue for nearly three years, despite the fact that it clearly contravenes FIFA’s own rules because the Palestinian Football Association has emphatically not agreed to those teams operating it its territory.

Signor Sindaco, io non mi permetto di chiederle di prendere posizione sul BDS, voglio solo sottoporle un’accorata sollecitazione a non prestarsi a legittimare un uso scellerato e strumentale dall’accusa di antisemitismo o di terrorismo contro BDS.

Americans for Peace Now cancels its annual summer trip: 'We are punished because we believe that the West Bank is not Israel'

 

 

 

“Now, because of a law that denies entry to individuals and organizations who publicly support boycotting West Bank settlements, we have to cancel our tour. We, who staunchly oppose any boycotts and sanctions of Israel, who call on our supporters to buy Israeli products and to support Israel, find ourselves being boycotted by Israel. We are punished because we believe that the West Bank is not Israel and because we vociferously oppose the Israeli government’s facts-on-the-ground actions to de facto annex the West Bank and by doing so annul the prospects for a two-state solution.”

And even if the Jews were to win the war, its end would find the unique possibilities and the unique achievements of Zionism in Palestine destroyed [....] The ‘victorious’ Jews would live surrounded by an entirely hostile Arab population, secluded into ever-threatened borders, absorbed with physical self-defense to a degree that would submerge all other interests and acitvities.
