Stop Israeli apartheid against Dead Sea fishermen - make Israel give them a fair deal.
Since Israel took control of the West Bank in 1967:
- It has not issued a single fishing permit to Palestinian fishermen for fishing in the Dead Sea.
- Irrigation projects have reduced the supply of fresh water entering the Dead Sea.
- It has allowed millions of Zionist tourists to bathe in the Dead Sea and to remove minerals from it, whilst not a single fish has been legally caught by local fishermen.
Due to salinification, experts estimate that in 20 years' time there will be NO fish left in the Dead Sea. We need to act NOW.
The Tories have made precisely no statement about this issue since being elected in 2010. They clearly do not care about Palestinian fishermen.
This petition will be sent to Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Her Majesty's Opposition: as a self-described friend of Hamas and Hezbollah, we hope he can be relied upon to lead the fight against this Zionist aggression.
- Leader of Labour Party
