UN chief appeals to Israel’s Netanyahu to immediately resume transfer of Palestinian funds

UN chief appeals to Israel’s Netanyahu to immediately resume transfer of Palestinian funds | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is appealing to Israel’s prime minister to immediately resume the transfer of Palestinian tax and customs revenue to the Palestinians.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said Ban also told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a phone conversation Tuesday that Israel’s new settlement building, including in East Jerusalem, undermines efforts to resume direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations and violates international law.

Israel's boycott ban draws fire from law professors | World news | The Guardian

Israel's boycott ban draws fire from law professors | World news | The Guardian | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Israel's new law effectively banning political boycotts is unconstitutional and does grievous harm to freedom of expression and protest, three dozen eminent Israeli law professors have said in a petition.
...
The petition, sent to attorney-general Yehuda Weinstein, was signed by the deans of many of Israel's law schools, including some associated with the political right.

"This law is a classic case of the tyranny of the majority," said Alon Harel of Hebrew University, one of the instigators of the petition. "The majority aims at silencing, persecuting and threatening the minority. It conflicts directly with the principles established in Israel in the 1990s that entrench the right to freedom of speech in the legal system. It is the most cherished right in the Israeli legal system."

Israeli Apartheid

Israeli Apartheid | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
In May, in a closed meeting of many of Israel’s business leaders, Idan Ofer, a holding-company magnate, warned, “We are quickly turning into South Africa. The economic blow of sanctions will be felt by every family in Israel.” The business leaders’ particular concern was the U.N. General Assembly session this September, where the Palestinian Authority is planning to call for recognition of a Palestinian state. Dan Gillerman, Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations, warned participants that “the morning after the anticipated announcement of recognition of a Palestinian state, a painful and dramatic process of Southafricanization will begin”—meaning that Israel would become a pariah state, subject to international sanctions. In this and subsequent meetings, the oligarchs urged the government to initiate efforts modeled on the Saudi (Arab League) proposals and the unofficial Geneva Accord of 2003, in which high-level Palestinian and Israeli negotiators detailed a two-state settlement that was welcomed by most of the world, dismissed by Israel and ignored by Washington.

Pro-Palestinian 'flytilla' stopped at airports by Israeli security

Pro-Palestinian 'flytilla' stopped at airports by Israeli security | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
In European airports – particularly Charles de Gaulle in Paris – activists barred from boarding their flights held spontaneous protests, shouting "Boycott Israel" and accusing the airlines of bowing to Israel's demands.
"I am absolutely shocked that it is possible that I am being blacklisted without any evidence that I have done anything," Cynthia Beat, a passenger turned away from her flight in Berlin, told Reuters. "Apparently, it is sufficient to state that you would like to go to Palestine, to spend time with Palestinians, in order to be banned from Israel."
......
Israel's global image has appeared increasingly battered since Israeli commandoes stormed a flotilla bound for Gaza last May, killing nine Turkish activists, and dealing a near-fatal blow to Turkish-Israeli relations. The international community condemned Israel for using disproportionate force and pressured Israel to ease its four-year blockade of Gaza, aimed at weakening Islamist group Hamas.
But the blockade is still in force, with the ban on exports preventing a recovery of the economy, and most of the 1.6 million Palestinians living there being confined to the tiny enclave.

The difficulty of speaking about Palestine / Israel

So where does this leave people who do not question the veracity of the Holocaust or the history of anti-semitism that preceded it, who fully comprehend the desire of European Jews – following the Second World War – to create a safe homeland outside of Europe (and who know the sordid history of the refusal of the American and Canadian governments to accept Jewish refugees), but who also know that the State of Israel was founded on the forcible expropriation of the land of the Palestinians who were driven into exile? This is an historical injustice that cannot simply be “disappeared” by the “fact” of the state of Israel — an injustice compounded by many more injustices committed over the last 60 years (many of which have been opposed by Jews inside and outside of Israel). So long as there are millions of Palestinians in need of their homeland, we cannot avoid the necessity to speak of Palestine.
