최근 몇 년간 한국과 이스라엘의 군사교류는 급격히 증가하고 있습니다. 한국은 이스라엘로부터 매년 평균 2억 8천만 달러 어치의 방위 물품을 사들이고 있습니다. 이스라엘과의 무기 금수에 대한 팔레스타인 시민 사회의 요청에 따라 우리는 한국 정부가 이스라엘로 T-50 골든 이글 훈련기 판매하지 않을 것과 이스라엘이 국제인권법을 존중할 때까지 군사 관계를 끊을 것을 요청합니다. 한국 정부에 대한 이 청원서에 여러분도 동참해 주실 것을 호소합니다.

 

In recent years South Korea has dramatically increased its military relationship with Israel. On average, it imports $280 million US of Israeli-manufactured defense products per-year. In accordance with Palestinian Civil Society's call for a military embargo on Israel, we call on the South Korean Government to cancel the sale of its T-50 Golden Eagle Jet and cut all defense ties with Israel until it demonstrates the will to abide by the principles of International Humanitarian Law. We urgently ask you to join us in petitioning this request to the South Korean Government.

      Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment are a non-violent way of compelling the Israeli government to cease its policies of ethnic cleansing and its war crimes against civilians.

      Because Israel is a racist country, illegally occupying palestine Land & killing, torturing & humiliating the Palestinian people against all human, moral & social norms.

      The sale of armaments to Israel does nothing more than prolong the 60 year injustice of apartheid. Action must be taken against.
