Stop Israeli Apartheid!
This petition had 5,957 supporters
I am a Norwegian woman, a quite ordinary person. I started this petition after experiencing life in Palestine, including the Jordan Valley and the Negev desert. It was heartbreaking seeing the daily harassments that the Palestinians and beduin tribes were exposed to; it afflicted women, children, old people, peasants, workers – every single person living in the territories occupied by Israel.
As we learned from South African apartheid, a state that makes its inhabitants victims of apartheid policies and practices, won't stop until the people of the world react. It is time we wake up once more!
The governments of the world, as well as do the EU and the UN, know more than enough about what is going on "on the ground" in the occupied territories, but still they don't put any power at all behind all their resolutions.
Then remains only: We, the people! Apartheid has no future.
We will stop apartheid once more! Join in by signing this petition, push the red button to sign.
Check out my Youtube video where I explain what I learned about Israeli apartheid: http://bit.ly/notcomplicated (The video has subtitles in English and Norwegian.)
So then, this is what WE, THE PEOPLE want to tell the world's most important international decision makers:
"I call upon the European Union (EU) as well as the United Nations and all its member states that they join the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement to boycott the state of israel until it ceases its apartheid policies, disregard for international law, violations of human rights and totally ends its Occupation and ends the siege of Gaza!
I demand this from all governments, including and especially my own.
Furthermore, I encourage all UN member states to fulfill their obligations according to the resolutions they themselves have passed through both the Security Council and General Assembly condemning the policies of the State of Israel toward Palestine and the Palestinian people.
Finally, I call upon the permanent members of the UN Security Council – and especially the US – to refrain from using their veto power to block nor thwart resolutions condemning the illegal practices of the State of Israel toward the Palestinian people!"
