BDS Movement for Palestinian Rights Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Bjørnar Moxnes is a member of the Norwegian Parliament

Awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to the BDS movement would be a powerful sign demonstrating that the international community is committed to supporting a just peace in the Middle East and using peaceful means to end military rule and broader violations of international law.

OSLO, Norway, Feb 2 2018 (IPS) - As a member of the Norwegian parliament, I proudly use my authority as an elected official to nominate the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Nominating the BDS movement for this recognition is perfectly in line with the principles I and my party hold very dear. Like the BDS movement, we are fully committed to stopping an ascendant, racist and right-wing politics sweeping too much of our world, and securing freedom, justice and equality for all people.

Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement and the American Civil Rights movement, the grassroots, Palestinian-led BDS movement is a peaceful, global human rights movement that urges the use of economic and cultural boycotts to end Israeli violations of Palestinian human rights and international law.

Awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to the BDS movement would be a powerful sign demonstrating that the international community is committed to supporting a just peace in the Middle East and using peaceful means to end military rule and broader violations of international law.The BDS movement seeks to end Israel’s half-century of military rule over 4.5 million Palestinians, including the devastating ten-year illegal siege collectively punishing and suffocating nearly 2 million Palestinians in Gaza, the ongoing forcible eviction of Palestinians from their homes, and the theft of Palestinian land through the construction of illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

It seeks equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel, currently discriminated against by dozens of racist laws, and to secure the internationally-recognized legal right of Palestinian refugees to return to homes and lands from which they were expelled.

Palestinian refugees constitute nearly 50 percent of all Palestinians, and they are being denied their right to return, guaranteed by law to all refugees, simply because of their ethnicity.

The BDS movement’s aims and aspirations for basic human rights are irreproachable. They should be supported without reservation by all democratically-minded people and states.

The international community has a longstanding history of supporting peaceful measures such as boycotts and disinvestment against companies that profit from human rights violations. International support for such measures was critical in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and the racist colonial regime in former Rhodesia.

If the international community commits to supporting BDS to end the occupation of Palestinian territory and the oppression of the Palestinian people, new hope will be lit for a just peace for Palestinians, Israelis and all people across the Middle East.

The BDS movement has been endorsed by prominent figures, including the former Nobel Peace Prize winners Desmond Tutu and Mairead Maguire. It is gaining support from unions, academic associations, churches, and grassroots movements for the rights of refugees, immigrants, workers, women, indigenous peoples and the LGBTQI community. It is increasingly embraced by progressive Jewish groups and anti-racist movements across the world.

Eleven years since BDS’ launch, it’s high time for us to commit to doing no harm, and for all states to withdraw their complicity in Israel’s military occupation, racist apartheid rule, ongoing theft of Palestinian land, and other egregious human rights violations.

Awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to the BDS movement would be a powerful sign demonstrating that the international community is committed to supporting a just peace in the Middle East and using peaceful means to end military rule and broader violations of international law.

My hope is that this nomination can be one humble but necessary step towards bringing forth a more dignified and beautiful future for all peoples of the region.

    Excellent nomination.

  • Hussein Hammami

    BDS deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, certainly more than many who currently hold it, but I doubt the Nobel Committee will even consider this nomination. The Committee wouldn’t have the stomach to withstand the attacks of the Israeli bullies including the use of their standard weapon, accusations of anti-semitism.

  • Eric Darden

    The goal of the BDS movement is the annihilation of Israel because it’s a Jewish state. If it wasn’t a Jewish state it wouldn’t be targeted. It is an evil movement led by evil people. BDS is not about justice, human rights, or freedom. It is about Jew hatred. They don’t care about “palestinians” in segregation camps, or those murdered by their own government, or even those killed in Syria. They use “Palestinians” as canon fodder in their twisted war against what they see as an outpost of capitalism. People who support BDS are scum.

  • Sam

    I will never recognize a Jewish state in the same way I don’t recognize an Islamic state which we all call ISIS and I won’t recognize a Christian state also despite that I’m a christian. If you want people to recognize a Jewish state then don’t blame Muslims if they recognized ISIS. now I have no problem recognizing an Israeli state as long as Israel recognize a Palestinian state which they don’t even if sometimes they say they do, their actions says otherwise.

  • Tony Riley

    Obviously you’re a racist hypocrite: Hitler invented BDS

  • Eric Darden

    A Jewish state is a necessity because of the failure of almost every single country with a Jewish minority to protect the Jews’ rights. There are many Muslim states besides ISIS. There are already 2 “palestinian” states: Gaza and Jordan. Israel won’t allow a third to be created in Judea because that state would immediately conduct war against Israel and given the death toll in the four Gaza wars since withdrawal, one can only shudder to think of the level of carnage that would result from a withdrawal from Judea.

  • Fine Withme

    Jews hate every religion but their own they are blatant in their #AntiCatholicism.
    They wish to see the annihilation of #Palestine. Israel is an evil state led by evil people. Israel is about hatred of all religion but its own ‘Nazism’ Hitler taught them very well. Israel like Nazi Germany will use ANYONE for cannon fodder!
    ‘APARTHEID ISRAEL’ LOVING JEWS ARE SCUM.

  • Fine Withme

    Shudder all you like. It is NOT in Israel’s remit to decide world affairs. Balfour did not own the land he gave. It was not England’s to give. Jewry is a religion NOT a nationality, ‘Nationhood’. According to your logic we should give Alaska or some other land, to the ‘Gay’ population because of the failure of almost every single country to give equal rights to Gays. Remember Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine.

  • Eric Darden

    In fact Jewry are a nation as well as a religion which is why they have faced murder on both those counts. If LGBT folk want to set up their own homeland somewhere, best of luck. I doubt it would get immediately invaded by four armies once established. England did not give Israel to the Jews, they simply agreed not to physically block the Jews from immigrating like the Ottoman Empire had done. There has never been a sovereign entity called Palestine, much less one that had Jerusalem as it’s capital.

  • Eric Darden

    You know, I’m looking on Wikipedia for Muslim and Jewish winners of the Nobel prize and it’s rather striking. Since the prize was created in 1901 there have only been 10 Muslim winners. By contrast there have been 22 Jewish winners… since 2005! The Jews have literally made a greater contribution to human progress in TEN years than the Muslims have in the last hundred; despite the fact that Jews are a fraction of the Muslim population. Since 1901 there have been nearly 200 Jewish Nobel winners. Forget Jewish though, let’s just look at ISRAEL: 12 winners have been Israeli (keep in mind that doesn’t include some people who won the prize before Israel’s creation and then lived there like Chaim Weizman). I think all this hostility towards Israel is just jealousy.

  • Tony Riley

    The boycott of German businesses by foreign Jews was in response to a boycott of German Jewish businesses organised by the Nazis.

    She was education minister for one year in point of fact. She was a hardcore Leftist and said the same crazy stuff that Leftists all over the world say. Israeli Leftists hate their country just as much as American Leftists hate ours.

  • Eric Darden

    Jews are a nation because many don’t practice Judaism in any form and are still considered Jews. They have a shared language (Hebrew), a shared culture, and a shared history. Also, they define themselves as a nation. There is far more reason to call the Jews a nation than to call “Palestinians” a nation since “Palestinians” lack a separate language, racial makeup, or religion compared to other Arabs. They do have a separate shared history but it only goes back about 100 years. If Jews aren’t a nation then “Palestinians” definitely aren’t.

  • Alison Orr

    The logical conclusion (?) based on your argument that Palestine can’t be a nation because they don’t have a separate language, racial makeup or religion, is that Britain can’t be a nation either as the English language has its roots in at least 7 languages, it’s population is originally from various invading nations and very few practise any religion. You say the Jews consider themselves a nation; I could consider myself a brain surgeon, but it doesn’t make me one!

  • Fine Withme

    Anti Israel they deport people because of the colour of their skin.

    So boycott Jewish stuff.

    Start with Facebook and Google: 2 Jewish companies that employ thousands of Jews in Israel.

    Use the Palestinian version womancoveryourfacebook.

    Chuck out your mobile phone and your computer, as they all use Israeli technology.

    I always wonder if your support for Palestine includes supporting the fact that forced marriages are legal there, as are “honour killings” of vulnerable women who try to escape from them?

    The United Nations has not credibility on this issue. It is a reflexively anti-Israel organization.

Don’t see you too upset over that.

  • Eric Darden

    The argument I made is that the Jews have a stronger case to be considered a nation than the “Palestinians” do, which is correct. If you want to argue that neither the Jews nor the “Palestinians” are a nation, that’s fine but then you have to argue why the Arabs should get a 22nd independent nation at the expense of the world’s only Jewish one.

    BTW, do you know who Ahed’s cousin is? Your would-be nominee for the Nobel Prize wants to be just like her murdering, terrorist cousin, Ahlam Tamimi. Ahlam Tamimi is the terrorist who masterminded the Sbarro bombing which killed at least 7 Jewish kids.

  • Eric Darden

    As a Leftist she subscribes to the belief that terrorism is motivated by materialism rather than ideology. That is why she fails to understand that the “Palestinians” are motivated by a Muslim supremacist ideology that rejects the right of infidels to live in sovereignty in the Middle East rather than any legitimate grievances. Israel is not analogous to South Africa for several reasons, including: Israel treats groups differently based on them being citizens vs. non-citizens, Arab Israelis have the same legal rights as Jewish Israelis. In fact Arab Israelis have more rights in Israel than they do in any of the Arab countries.

  • Dogmom

    People who truly understand the Middle East conflict know that the real injustices inflicted on the Arab population of Garza and the West Bank are inflicted by their very own leadership and not by Israel. Israel has every right to defend her people against terrorism and these defensive actions should not be mistaken for aggression. The wall has reduced suicide bombings by over 90%. Check points keep Israelis safe from attacks. Everything Israeli leadership does is defensive.

    BDS practices a form of terrorism by trying to destroy Israel through the economy and the spreading of shameless lies. It is anti-Semitism by stealth and certainly not worthy of a peace prize.

  • Dogmom

    They could have had statehood many times over by now but their leaders have rejected every Israeli offer, including most of the West Bank. Ask yourself why. Because their goal is not statehood- it is the destruction Israel, “from the river to the sea,”

  • BERM40

    In apartheid South Africa the choice was clear and beyond escape: It was good versus evil. Apartheid, apartness, which meant racial segregation and discrimination enforced by the white minority on the country’s black, colored and Asian peoples, was wrong and inhuman, denying freedom and stunting and destroying lives. The problem for concerned people was not merely to do the obvious thing and reject apartheid, but to decide what to do about it. That is, how far to go in opposing it against an increasingly tyrannous government: from being a passive bystander to imperiling your liberty, even life.

    In Israel, the moral choices are many and complex and are a daily challenge. Each of the two main competing groups, Jews and Arabs, has right on its side, through history, land, religion, geography, and tradition. The dilemma is how to satisfy their separate demands and aspirations for a tiny piece of land. The problem is bedevilled because in the long struggle between them, neither side has always behaved well, inflicting death and destruction on the other.

    Each side believes that it is in the right, and each side fears and rejects the other. Jews and Arabs are a mirror image of each other: each believes that force is the only language that the other understands; each believes that the other is trying to wipe it out. That there is some truth in these beliefs on both sides adds to the complexities.

    The ugly reality must not be denied, as some do from the standpoint that Israel can do no wrong or that it must be defended at all costs against its enemies. Anti-Semitism is certainly a factor behind some of the attacks on Israel, but it must not be overstated, as some do, as a means of counterattacking. The Holocaust is inextricably bound up with Israel’s existence, but it must not be misused, as some do, as an emotional weapon to silence genuine critics.

    At the other extreme, Israel’s failings and mistakes must not be used, as some do, as an excuse—even more, a cover—for condemning Israel to the extent of denying its very right to exist.

    Israel’s accomplishments are wondrous; but it is not a perfect society and its people sometimes behave badly and violate their moral standards, like people anywhere in the world. They must be judged and treated the same as other people and countries. None of it has lessened my belief in Zionism or the imperative of Israel as a home and sanctuary for Jews.

    Israel is accused of being “like apartheid South Africa” or it is the “new apartheid” or it is “reminiscent of apartheid” or it “resembles apartheid” or it is “tantamount” to apartheid or it has “elements” of apartheid or it perpetrates the “principle” of apartheid, or it is even “worse than apartheid.” These phrases are used mainly in regard to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, but some critics also apply them to Israel itself.

    They are more than mere words: the obvious aim is to have Israel declared as illegitimate a state as was South Africa and hence open to international sanctions. And even more, at least for some, to deny the validity of its existence.

    If the apartheid accusation is correct, then Israel merits harsh condemnation. For it to be an apartheid state would be a betrayal of the Jewish ethics that underpin its existence, of the dreams of its founders, and of the words of the Declaration of Independence of May 14, 1948: “The State of Israel . . . will be based on the precepts of liberty, justice, and peace taught by the Hebrew Prophets; will uphold the full social and political equality of all its citizens, without distinction of race, creed or sex…”

    Use of the word apartheid in the world has broadened and softened, referring to just about anything that means separation. In Cuba, the ban on tourists staying at swank hotels was labeled as “tourism apartheid” before it ended in 2008. A ban on some bathing costumes on Brazil’s beaches was described as “bikini apartheid.” In Britain, bans on same-sex marriages were described as “a form of sexual apartheid.” The fact that racial minorities, especially blacks, are the majority in U.S. prisons has been called the “New American apartheid.”

  • BERM40

    unfortunately the anti semite core of nazi-like values still remain in europe , it seems no where more so than n. europe sweden , nederlands etc…

  • Red Robbo

    Campaigners for Palestinian ‘freedom’, who often argue that sanctions brought down the apartheid regime of South Africa and they are what will bring down the apartheid regime of Israel, ignore the lesson of history. The election of the ANC to power was supposed to see the grinding poverty of the townships ended, but the ANC have turned out to be powerless to run capitalism in a way that would end exploitation and poverty. Capitalism means the continuation of war and want. Workers have no country.

    Just your choice of adjectives shows otherwise. Enough. You are hateful. You have nothing more to add to the discussion, I have said what I I have and you have shown who you are so it should senseless to continue and get more hateful and racist comments on here

  • Cpt_Justice

    And yet when I point out to Norwegians how antisemitic their society is, they are shocked & furious that I could dare to even suggest it! That anyone with any critical thinking skills at all could buy into the lies this person is so blithely mouthing is astonishing; the only motivation has to be bigotry.

  • Cpt_Justice

    Yes, by all means, answer one set of lies with another.

  • Cpt_Justice

    This is a perfect example of how antisemites prevent themselves from seeing just how deeply they have bought into the lies of terrorists.

  • Cpt_Justice

    Not only is this another set of lies, it ignores the other crucial facts:
    a) Israel is too small to take in all the refugees, and yet NO OTHER COUNTRY AROUND IT is taking in THOSE SAME REFUGEES – and yet YOU are saying nothing about them? Why is that? Antisemitism.
    b)Israel is actually giving them money & free transportation – what othe country does this?& yet YOU are saying nothing about them? Why is that? Antisemitism.
    c) Israel is in NO violation of ANY UN regulations; stop lying.
    d) When anyone uses another person as a human shield THAT person is responsible for their deaths. therefore, the “slaughtering” is all the doing of Hamas.
    Until the evil that is antisemitism is destroyed, the evil that is anti-Israeli terrorism will go on. It is your choice – you & everyone like you – not anyone else’s.

  • Karen

    Oh boo hoo. You’d sympathize with Hitler if it meant going after Jews. How about a peace prize for the ayatollahs? Do you also advocate for the murder of the 7,000,000 Jews in Israel? Because that’s what BDS stands for

  • Cpt_Justice

    What a stupid child you are. Please block me, too.

  • Cpt_Justice

    The word ‘antisemite” was coined by Wilhelm Marr is mean “Jew hatred” because he wanted his pathology to sound scientific instead of childish. Look it up, & stop whining about the vagaries of the English language.

  • Cpt_Justice

    Jordan killed 20,000 “Palestinians” all at once during ‘Black September.” Not that these antisemites actually care.

  • Karen

    Okay, so why does my DNA say I’m indigenous to Israel? Why does science and archeological evidence confirm this? Hitler said leave and go to Palestine. Now the anti-semites say leave Palestine. Well, how about Jews say F$ck you this time

  • Cpt_Justice

    I was going to ask you stop lying, but when you finished with “Khazaria”, I realized that you were actually too stupid to know the difference between truth & lies. SO, never mind!

  • Cpt_Justice

    He’s smearing it on there himself. & we know what he’s using to do it.

  • Cpt_Justice

    You are entirely wrong. It absolutely *was* Balfour’s: the Turks lost it to the English in an offensive war. For crying out loud, what is it you haters that you are all so *belligerently* ignorant? Not even going to address the rest of your stupidity – it’s just too much for any sane person to deal with.

  • moosehorn

    You’re calling the BDS movement racist, and its main goal is promoting the basic human rights of the Palestinian people. Oops I forgot that, for you, there is no such a thing as Palestinians, or may be they are not humans.
    As to answer your dumb question about discrimination: How about the continuous forced eviction, housing demolition, land theft and settlers engagement in harassments, the extrajudicial executions, unlawful killing and excessive use of force.
    The arbitrary arrest, torture and unjustified detention of minors. The West Bank movement restrictions and the never ending violations of human rights, and so on and so on.

  • Eric Darden

    Maybe those of us who support Israel should initiate a boycott “Palestinian” products? Oh wait, we can’t ’cause they don’t produce anything. 🙂

  • Cpt_Justice

    What’s inane is making pronouncements for other groups as if they were exactly the same as your own, imposing your standards on everyone else. Judaism is not like Christianity & to insist it must be because you can’t grasp how it’s not is the height of self-centered bigotry.

  • moosehorn

    No, because, for the like of you, they don’t exist.

  • Cpt_Justice

    You want a cracker, Polly?

  • Cpt_Justice

    He’s nothing more than a parrot. With a minimum of noise he has managed to hit every single talking point of antisemites.

  • Karen

    Show me a concentration camp in Israel that is comparable to Auschwitz. You’re pathetic and you’re throwing genocide around like the candy the Palestinians doled out after 9/11 and Tel Aviv bus bombings. By supporting BDS and ignoring the slaughter of Syrians, Yazidis, Yemenites, Afghanis, Nigerians, etc, you’ve exposed your Jew hate.

  • MissCostello

    What an outstandingly *stupid” comment. Clairvoyant too! Don’t give up the day job.

  • moosehorn

    This clown will twist, contort fart and belch, in no particular order, in a desperate attempt to prove that he lost touch with reality.

  • Eric Darden

    Turns out that basing your entire nation’s reason to exist on the destruction of another country and focusing all your resources on attacking a country that is significantly stronger than you is not conducive to a prosperous and productive economy.

  • MissCostello

    Bullshit is what YOU stand for. Try harder. Yours is crap.

  • moosehorn

    I sense desperation in your tone, or just the echoing of desperate lies.

  • moosehorn

    Oh give it up, if you want to stop the spread of anti-Semitism, start to behave humanely.

  • Connie Goldman

    BDS has nothing to do with anything other than the destruction of Israel. It’s a flawed nomination by a hypocrite who ignores the oppressed in other parts of the world. The BDS movement will stall and go down in flames like all other hate-driven movements.

  • moosehorn

    That is what I call vilifying the victim to defend the aggressor.

  • Minniehaha

    What a well thought out argument. Says all we need to know about you

  • Minniehaha

    How about you give up your bigoted Jew hate instead

  • moosehorn

    Ah, the morally bankrupt, justifying Israeli crimes by other killings. Disgusting.

  • moosehorn

    Does that justify the Israeli crimes?

  • Minniehaha

    Israel offered the Pals a state many times. They can blame themselves and the Arab countries that use them like puppets. I don’t hear you complaining about the Palestinians treatment In Lebanon. Why are they still in refugee camps? Why can’t they own land, get jobs, etc in other Arab countries? How about you educate yourself

  • Minniehaha

    so why was there anti-semitism before Israel existed? We weren’t acting humanely when we were forced into ghettos and slaughtered whenever the populace needed a scapegoat? Yeah, sure.

  • BERM40

    losers and fools.. ya you are both and ignorant of honesty, so sad you’re a corrupted jew hater not worthy of my time…

  • Minniehaha

    Yawn. You sound like a gender studies professor. Gee, no Jew hate agenda there 😂

  • moosehorn

    No one is mixed up between truth and lies such as yourself, and your resorting to insults proves that you lost the argument.

  • Minniehaha

    😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 I curse you to have to look at your lying, hateful face in the mirror everyday for the rest of your life. Terrifying though

  • Minniehaha

    They don’t care because it doesn’t fit their Jew hate agenda

  • BERM40

    BDS movement, should be condemned, Every step and every opportunity we have we speak against it, we denounce it, and we denounce those who are seeking to carry out.

    BDS’s anti-Israel agenda, is always anti-Semitic and it is blatantly and utterly racist. It’s only against Israel – a group of people in one faith – where you see a BDS movement. You see it nowhere else. You can’t name me a single other country in the world, a single other faith or a single other people group where there’s a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement except against the Jewish people and Israel. It’s anti-Semitic, it’s racist, it is beneath contempt.

  • Minniehaha

    I love it. They have to blame Israel because they are incapable of self reflection and responsibility. Pathetic

  • Minniehaha

    Blah, blah, blah, blah. Do you think you’re original in your bigoted views? Heard it all before and yet here we are. And sad for you, but we’re not going anywhere. Guess we’re just your worse nightmare. Deal with it

  • Minniehaha

    And yet we have our own gene pool so, yes, there is a Jewish People. And you deny Jews, and only Jews, our homeland. DNA and science prove we are indigenous to Israel, but that sort of ruins your whole premise

  • moosehorn

    Pathetic or not, It’s a matter of right and wrong, and you are on the wrong side but that doesn’t bother your because you are one of the immoral haters.

  • Minniehaha

    Oh my goodness, the Jew haters have to fall back on their apartheid bullsh$t because the facts don’t support their bigoted arguments

  • Minniehaha

    How about you having an original thought instead of mimicking al the Jew haters who came before you

  • Minniehaha

    Omg, you crack me up. Do you judge Arab countries for abusing their own people? You’re a bigot who hates Jews and your comments reflect it. You can blame us and call us Nazis, but it’s people like you who reenforce the need for our own homeland. Sorry, but we were here long before the Palestinians were created in 1947.

  • Minniehaha

    Um, the wall is there because your bros kept bombing buses and pizzarias. But you don’t care about slaughtered Jews because it goes against your narrative

  • moosehorn

    Another inflamed Zio-Nazi, foaming at the mouth!

  • Ilana Fine Bar-Hai

    Yes. He says anti Israel is not anti semitism and then says if you want anti semitism to end start acting humanely. So Jews are not humane. But Nazis were..and you can follow his logic from there. And I tried to have a a sensible discussion. Ugh.

  • BERM40

    F-ing Norwegians. The people who gave the Nobel Prize to Y-ASS-er Arafat, one of the most heinous creatures of the last century. May their country be conquered by Islam with Godspeed.

  • Minniehaha

    Hahahahahaha. That’s why Israeli Arabs have full rights in Israel. Arabs are in the IDF, on the Supreme Court, in government positions. Yeah, that’s apartheid all right. What rights do Jews have in Arab countries? None because they were all ethnically cleansed. But go ahead and live in your little hate bubble

  • moosehorn

    Speaking from experience, right?

  • Minniehaha

    It’s something called DNA proof, but don’t let the facts get in your way

  • Minniehaha

    Typical ignorance of those so called Jew haters

  • Minniehaha

    My two year old sounds just like you. No! Me decide!

  • Tostig

    So basically, you just really, really don’t like Jews. Why not just admit it and save yourself all this preening and writing?

  • Minniehaha

    what Have you contributed to humanity? Nothing but recycled anti-Semitic tropes. You’re unoriginal and tiresome

  • Minniehaha

    And you’re still a bigot. Carry on

  • Minniehaha

    And it’s only targeting Jews. Hmmmm, sounds awfully familiar.

  • moosehorn

    DNA and science proved that two thirds are Ashkhenazy khazar invaders.

  • BERM40

    there have been many instance’s when the nobel prize has been offered to evil, wrongheadedly, like arafat and obama, Joseph Stalin, the Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 and 1948 for his efforts to end World War II. Surprisingly, Adolf Hitler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1939, by a member of the Swedish parliament, an E.G.C. Brandt.

  • Minniehaha

    It would because it will give Jews an opportunity to show what these bigots are advocating – the destruction of the Jewish people.

  • moosehorn

    You want to see a braying willfully ignorant, look into a mirror.

  • Minniehaha

    That we be awesome because than we can make a highlight reel of all her pallywood movies

  • Minniehaha

    Oh really. You’re lying through your teeth. Typical

  • moosehorn

    Displaying Immaturity or idiotic behaviour?

  • moosehorn

    Au contraire all facts describe Israel as an apartheid.

  • moosehorn

    So, apartheid is a big word, and that’s why Israel is establishing it?

  • moosehorn

    Jew-hater is also an overplayed and worn out card, don’t complain when Karma gets back at you.

  • moosehorn

    I have also said what I have to say and you have shown who you are.
    Estalavista, you’re not gona be missed.

  • Minniehaha

    You know nothing about me. I’m willing to bet you haven’t suffered ant-Semitic violence or discrimination. I have, as did my father and his father before him, so call me immoral for standing up for Jews, and fortunately, you’re just another example of why Jews need a homeland. We know exactly what you are

  • Ilana Fine Bar-Hai

    Hasta la Vista to you. Cannot say though, that you are going to be missed, to be honest!

  • Tony Riley

    If you’re a BDS supporter, don’t get Cancer, because Israel is the only country coming up with effective treatment.

  • Tony Riley

    No, the term “anti-semite” was invented by a Jew-hating German.

    Probably a relative of yours.

  • MissCostello

    “comparable to Auschwitz”:
    How stupid you are; since WHEN did Auschwitz become the barometer for every atrocity on the planet in 2018? Do we condone that which is CLEARLY WRONG, because it doesn’t quite match up (in YOUR view) to the evils of what took place elsewhere, years before? Try telling that to a Palestinian, who has *paid the price* in every way, from 1948 to this very day.

    “Jew hate”:
    Tell that to my *Jewish* friends – those (unlike you) who know injustice when they see it, against 1.5 million + men, women, children, confined within a narrow strip of land, every abuse that comes with it, day in day out, for WHAT? Living in the land they were BORN IN *harming no one*? Enough.

  • moosehorn

    BDS is a nonviolent movement defending the basic human rights of the Palestinian people and addressing the injustices they suffer under certain apartheid Israeli actions. it is not in your powers to stop it as you cannot dictate on the international community on how to run their affairs, suck it up and deal with it.

  • moosehorn

    I don’t see any outpouring love from you.

  • moosehorn

    There we go all arrogance about Israel this and the Israel that. Good try.

  • moosehorn

    If you suffered discrimination and injustice, you shouldn’t accept it being inflicted on the Palestinians, that simple.

  • Minniehaha

    Why would I pour love on the people who want to destroy us. I’ll save my love for Syrian children who have suffered chemical attacks. Guess you haven’t much love for them since you only go after Jews

  • Sam

    because these are not Muslim states, nor christian states. these are secular governments that recognize a religion as their identity but not as their laws or legislation. like Britain for example is considered a Christian country but not in their laws. they don’t legislate laws according to the bible, its called a christian country but Muslims, Jews and Christians live on it under the same laws that rules all of them.
    the only states that wants to be called upon their religion are Israel and ISIS. and I’m sorry as long as I don’t recognize an Islamic state, I will never recognize a Jewish state.

  • moosehorn

    Enough of tossing: you are an anti-Semite, you are a Jew-hater. The subject is about The BDS movement being nominated for the Nobel peace prize which unleashed a pile-on of hysteric zionists opposed the idea.
    As for the Palestinians we know, that to the like of you. they are some sort of imaginary creatures,

  • David Barrett

    There is no such thing as a Palestinian people. Where were they when Jordanian rule was in ascendant? They are a concoction of deceit to justify vilification of anything Jewish in this area

  • David Barrett

    Bjørnar Moxnes may be a member of the Norwegian Parliament but his ignorance of facts on the ground and his wish to eliminate Israel off the map by recognizing an egocentric Arab population which is unwilling to accept a Jewish state in its midst, let alone Jews,signifies that he too is an anti-Semite.

  • David Barrett

    Your use of the word apartheid signifies your anti-Semitism. Go and ask a South African what apartheid really was!!

  • moosehorn

    And that minimum noise drove into hysteria.

  • David Barrett

    The so called Pallys have brought all this upon themselves thro bad leadership, financial theft and Jew hatred. Go ask the ordinary Pally in the street – he will tell you the truth.

  • Minniehaha

    Yies BDS is so noble in its Jew hate. Why no outrage about Arabs slaughtering Arabs? Oh yeah, no Jews so it’s super boring and out of fashion. You need a little beret and AK47 so you can look like your Hamas friends

  • Minniehaha

    Yawn 🤮😴

  • David Barrett

    You wrote” They slaughter & imprison Children in the thousands” That is pure slander and totally unacceptable. The Arabs have killed 11 million of their own in the last 50 years and are still at it today . Not a word from you about half million dead in Syria?!

  • Minniehaha

    Yes, and BDS advocates for the destruction of Israel. So enough protestations about how noble and peaceful they are. Go take a nap

  • David Barrett

    No he did not . Prove it – source line and quote!!

  • Minniehaha

    😂 6,000,000 wasn’t enough for you. We’re dealing with reality while you’re starry eyed about destroying Israel. Go troll somewhere else. Why are you even commenting in a Jewish newspaper when your agenda is perfectly clear

  • moosehorn

    Don’t put words in my mouth, and don’t confuse my criticism of Israel inhumane actions toward the Palestinians, with Jew hating. Not all Jews accept what goes on in the apartheid state.

  • moosehorn

    I am not denying Holocaust, you are using it to justify the atrocities the Palestinians are being subjected to.

    Spoken languages are Urdu (a form of Hindustani), English (both official), Punjabi, Sindhi, Dari, Balochi, and Pashto.

  • David Barrett

    Do you realise how much money has been poured into the Pally cause with hardly any progress in building proper residential urban developments , schools for their children and hospitals ? Israel provides their electricity but they don’t want tp pay for it and most of the money has found its way into the leaders pockets [ not surprisingly] , to build beautiful palatial residences for Abbas and his cronies and/or for illegal weapons. Oh! and Abbas now wants a 50 million personal airbus so he can fly to Europe!!All Israel does , after the Pallys turned down 3 deals, is to apply law and order, in accordance with the High Court. Sure a few mistakes have been made but ask the 2 million Arabs living WITHIN Israel where they would like to live the rest of their lives.
    I know what answer they would happily give!

    I’m simply trying to help you avoid being a hypocrite.

    I would obviously be quite amused if you rejected life-saving medicine on the basis that it’s invented by a Jew.

    Now you are showing your true colours. Typical Hasbara trolls attempt to explain until realizing that they are getting nowhere and then they respond with disdain and disgust.

  • Tony Riley

    The apartheid state of Palestine?

    No, it’s a mess in Palestine: forced marriage is the norm, as are “honour killings” of vulnerable women who try to escape from them.

    You should boycott Palestine until it mends its ways.

  • David Barrett

    I shall also add that to the chagrin of many this dispute is not about social matters but about religion. The Arab Muslims have been brainwashed into carrying out despicable acts that are certainly not humanistic in the vain hope that their ‘brother’ Jew will be eliminated. No longer are Jews dhimmi !!
    “For the Jews to return to their Temple, the Arabs who treated the Jews badly and prevented us from serving our God must have a judgment brought upon them.”
    The Jewish people , so longa s they maintain their charitable behavior and what I would call their slow return to religious acceptance are in the ascendant ; or to put it into Arabic so that they may understand — insh’Allah

  • Minniehaha

    And you’re making a ridiculous leap. I advocate for a two state solution but BDS doesn’t, so quit with the sanctimonious bs. I’m done with you

  • EyalN

    you are welcome to visit Palestinian cities and arab cities in Israel and you will see that all of them have a better life than arabs in arab countries. Palestinians are not welcome in Israeli areas because they kill Israelis. if you are Christian or gay or both don’t visit them because they will kill you. in Gaza they kill anyone that is not straight muslim. sodastream had palestinians working for them but because of BDS they had to fire them and move the company into israeli area.
    if palestinians needs a real good doctor israelis help them, do you know anyone else that help is enemy?

    Despite the fact that Iran enforces laws based on religious believes on their citizens but in the eyes of the international community and the UN they are secular and they won’t dare to say otherwise. another example of a bad secular country is Saudi Arabia which claims to be secular but most of their laws are based on a religious book. I’m not saying this is ok I’m just saying that you can’t ask the world to recognize a Jewish state, in the same way they won’t recognize an Islamic state.

    That’s not a counter argument.

  • Eric Darden

    The constant stream of persecution and violence against non-Muslims such as Yazidis, Christians, Zoroastrians, hindus, etc. clearly demonstrate that hatred for Jews is not based on what they’ve done but the fact that they are infidels.

    ‘Albert Einstein Letter to The New York Times. December 4, 1948.
    New Palestine Party. Visit of Menachen Begin and Aims of Political Movement Discussed by Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, Sidney Hook…
    Source: Text from original microfilm

    TO THE EDITORS OF NEW YORK TIMES:

    Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.

    The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin’s political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.
    Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin’s behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement.
    The public avowals of Begin’s party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.

    Attack on Arab Village
    A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base. On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants (240 men, women, and children) and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem. Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin.
    The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of the Freedom Party.
    Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority. Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model.
    During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community. Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.
    The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They have reclaimed no land, built no settlements, and only detracted from the Jewish defense activity. Their much-publicized immigration endeavors were minute, and devoted mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots.

    Discrepancies Seen
    The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a “Leader State” is the goal.
    In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin’s efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin.

    The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.

    They use Hindu numbers that were appropriated by the conquering Muslims. The problem is that once Islam stopped expanding around the 1500s and steadily began contracting they were no longer able to take knowledge that others had discovered and incorporate it into their empires which led to the steady decline of the Islamic civilizations to the point where they lag behind nearly every other civilization on Earth today. Now, if they would give up their supremacist beliefs, embrace democracy and free markets, and focus on building up their own societies then the situation could change and Muslim countries could prosper.

    No, not by conquering..Arab Golden Age Baghdad in 8th century was the center of studies and knowledge. Arabic numbers replaced Roman letter numbers, no need to scream, numerals are the work of Hindu, Persians, Chinese etc..Arab found the Algebra equation

    (..)”Among other things, Al-Karaji used mathematical induction to prove the binomial theorem. A binomial is a simple type of algebraic expression which has just two terms which are operated on only by addition, subtraction, multiplication and positive whole-number exponents, such as (x + y)2.
    The co-efficients needed when a binomial is expanded form a symmetrical triangle, usually referred to as Pascal’s Triangle after the 17th Century French mathematician Blaise Pascal.
    Although many other mathematicians had studied it centuries before him in India, Persia, China and Italy, including Al-Karaji”.

    It is true that several centuries ago Muslim scientists made significant contributions to scientific discovery In addition to the knowledge they attained through conquest. However, starting with the Reconquista of Spain and accelerating rapidly with Britain’s seizure of India, the dutch colonization of Indonesia and Napolean’s invasion of Egypt in 1798, the Muslims have lagged far behind almost everyone else. The great academic Bernard Lewis detailed this decline and the Muslim world’s desperate attempt to grapple with it in his 2002 book What Went Wrong.

    The most dramatic example of how far they have fallen is the fact that Israel, a country of some 8 million people (6.5 million Jews), publishes more scientific research papers and issues more patents than all 57 Muslim countries constituting 1.6 billion people combined. Now, were the Muslims to embrace democracy, rule of law, freedom of speech, secularism, and free markets; they would likely embark on a new era of prosperity. Also, they would not be a threat to Israel as liberal democracies do not war with one another.

    About laws discriminating against israeIi citizens of any religion… There are no such laws at all. I assume Moxnes and others perhaps think Arabs in the area of Samaria and Judea, otherwise known as the West Bank of the Jordan river, are Israeli citizens. They are NOT. Many hold Jordanian passports actually. And their movement into Israel is restricted, like any country can do with non citizens. Many are allowed to come and work in Israel. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of terror attacks within Israel, and which killed Arabs, Christians, jews, tourists, Druze etc, we’re committed by non citizens from the “west bank”. This is why it takes time to enter Israel to work. BDS had many factories in which Jews and arabs worked side by side, closed down and moved into Israel. Hundreds of people lost their jobs. There are documentations online and on YouTube of many Arabs talking about this and their feelings on it.

The same goes for Al-Qaeda who Israel supports in Syria. Various UN reports confirm this, as well as al-Nusra commanders (al-Qaeda) themselves.

    Bishop Tutu Is No Saint When it Comes To Jews

    by Alan M. Dershowitz

    Among the world’s most respected figures is South Africa’s Bishop Desmond. His recognizable face—with its ever present grin—has become a symbol of reconciliation and goodness. But it masks a long history of ugly hatred toward the Jewish people, the Jewish religion and the Jewish state. Bishop Desmond Tutu is no mere anti-Zionist (though Martin Luther King long ago recognized that anti- Zionism often serves as a cover for deeper anti-Jewish bigotry). He has minimized the suffering of those killed in the Holocaust. He has attacked the “Jewish”–not Israeli–“lobby” as too “powerful” and “scar[y].” He has invoked classic anti-Semitic stereotypes and tropes about Jewish “arrogance”, “power” and money. He has characterized Jews a “peculiar people,” and has accused “the Jews” of causing many of the world’s problems. He once even accused the Jewish state of acting in an “unChristian” way.

    Were he not a Nobel laureate, his long history of bigotry against the Jewish people would have landed him in the dustbin of history, along with a dishonor roll of otherwise successful people, whose reputations have been tainted by their anti-Semitism such as Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, Patrick Buchanan and Mel Gibson. But his Nobel Prize should not shield him from accountability for his long history of anti-Jewish bigotry, any more than it should for Yassir Arafat, Jimmy Carter and Jose Saramago.

    Let the record speak for itself, so that history may judge Tutu on the basis of his own words—words that he has often repeated and that others repeat, because Tutu is a role model for so many people around the world. Here are some of Tutu’s hateful words, most of them carefully documented in a recent petition by prominent South Africans to terminate him as a “patron” of the two South African Holocaust Centers, because he uses his status with these fine institutions as legitimization for his anti-Jewish rhetoric.

    He has minimized the suffering of those murdered in the Holocaust by asserting that “the gas chambers” made for “a neater death” than did Apartheid. In other words, the Palestinians, who in his view are the victims of “Israeli Apartheid,” have suffered more than the victims of the Nazi Holocaust. He has complained of “the Jewish Monopoly of the Holocaust,” and has demanded that its victims must “forgive the Nazis for the Holocaust,” while refusing to forgive the “Jewish people” for “persecute[ing] others.”

    Tutu has asserted that Zionism has “very many parallels with racism,” thus echoing the notorious and discredited “Zionism equals racism” resolution passed by the General Assembly of the United Nations and subsequently rescinded. He has accused the Jews of Israel of doing “things that even Apartheid South Africa had not done.” He has said that “the Jews thought they had a monopoly of God: Jesus was angry that they could shut out other human beings.” He has said that Jews have been “fighting against” and being “opposed to” his God. He has “compared the features of the ancient Holy Temple in Jerusalem to the features of the apartheid system in South Africa.” He has complained that “the Jewish people with their traditions, religion and long history of persecution sometimes appear to have caused a refugee problem among others.” He has implied that Israel might someday consider as an option “to perpetrate genocide and exterminate all Palestinians.”

    He has complained that Americans “are scared…to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful—very powerful.” He has accused Jews—not Israelis—of exhibiting “an arrogance—the arrogance of power because Jews are a powerful lobby in this land and all kinds of people woo their support.”

    “You know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal [in the U.S.] and to criticize it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic, as if Palestinians were not Semitic.”

    He has compared Israel to Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union and Apartheid South Africa, saying that they too were once “very powerful” but they “bit the dust,” as will “unjust” Israel.

    He has denied that Israel is a “civilized democracy” and has singled out Israel—one of the world’s most open democracies—as a nation guilty of “censorship of their media.” He has urged the Capetown Opera to refuse to perform Porgy and Bess in Tel Aviv and has called for a total cultural boycott of Jewish Israel, while encouraging performers to visit the most repressive regimes in the world.

    He has claimed that his God sides with Palestinians, whom he compares to the Israelites under bondage in Egypt, and has sought to explain, if not justify, how Israeli actions lead directly to suicide bombings and other forms of terrorism.

    He has been far more vocal about Israel’s imperfections than about the genocides in Rwanda, Darfur and Cambodia. He repeatedly condemns Israel’s occupation of the West Bank without mentioning the many other occupations in the world today. While attacking Israel for its “collective punishment” of Palestinians—which he claims is worse than what Apartheid South Africa did—he himself has called for the collective punishment of Jewish academics and businesses in Israel by demanding boycotts of all Jewish (but not Muslim or Christian) Israelis. (This call for an anti-Jewish boycott finds its roots in the Nazi “Kauft Nicht beim Juden” campaign of the 1930’s.) When confronted with his double standard against Jews, he has justified it on phony theological grounds: “Whether Jews like it or not, they are a peculiar people. They can’t ever hope to be judged by the same standards which are used for other people.” There is a name for non-Jews who hold Jews to a double standard: It is called anti-Semitism.

    Tutu has acknowledged having been frequently accused of being anti-Semitic,” to which he has offered two responses: “Tough luck;” and “my dentist’s name is Dr. Cohen.”

    I am confident that President Obama was not aware of Tutu’s sordid history of anti-Jewish rhetoric and actions when he awarded him the Medal of Freedom in the White House in 2009. The sad reality is that Bishop Tutu’s beneficent look is the new face of the oldest of bigotries.

    The decent people of South Africa have become aware of Tutu’s bigotry, because they have seen and heard it up close. It is time for the rest of the world to recognize that the Bishop is no saint. When it comes to Jews, he is an unrepentant sinner.

    Though he is now retired, he still has the opportunity to repent and to end the sordid history of applying an unacceptable double standard to the Jewish state, the Jewish people and the Jewish religion.

    If anyone should stop smoking crack, it’d be you, Mr Riley. There’s nothing legal about Israel’s bombing of Syria. Only Israel and its apologists, could say, and claim something so ridiculous as that. There’s two things wrong here, one, is that Israel bombs all manner of targets which belies their claims; two, is that even if true – even if they were attacking missiles, since when does a country have a right to bomb another country? Can the US legally bomb Russia because their missiles are to be used against their civilians?

    Are there any missiles that are to be used against Israeli civilians, even? That is, would anyone fire these missiles if so, unless the apartheid state of Israel attacked first?

    No. Let’s get real here.

    He emigrated to South Africa and lived there for 20 years, therefore was a South African. As such, he was classed as a coloured, considered slightly better than the Blacks, by the white Anglo-Dutch. The Anglo-Dutch whites had a similar view to the Zionists when it came to colour and race, expect Zionism is extremely prejudiced towards who are not White Jews.

  • Tony Riley

    You’re mistaken: he was Indian, even though he lived in South Africa. He wrote some horrible things about Black Africans.

    Very few Israelis are white: I believe more “Palestinians” are white. Look at the Tamimis, for example.

    Israel has rescued tens of thousands of Black Jews from Muslim countries.

    All Israeli citizens are equal by law.

    Here’s a question for you: if life is so awful for Israeli Arabs, why don’t any of them ever leave to claim asylum in the neighbouring Arab countries?

  • http://www.patricktsudlow.com Patrick Sudlow

    Most Zionists are Caucasian (White). The Zionists did invite Ethiopian Jews to emigrate to Occupied Palestine, as a propaganda ploy. But they have experienced nothing but racist abuse from the Zionists. Even a USA paper posted an article: http://chicagomonitor.com/2013/03/israels-ethiopian-jews-a-community-not-jewish-enough/.
    As for Palestinians leaving, it is very difficult for them, when they are not allowed to travel and it is THEIR country. Even so, the UN estimates:
    “Nearly one-third of the registered
    Palestine refugees, more than 1.5 million individuals, live in 58
    recognized Palestine refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, the Syrian Arab
    Republic, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.”

    That was after Zionists invaded Palestine.

    “Zionism and the Third Reich”

    Early in 1935, a passenger ship bound for Haifa in Palestine left the German port of Bremerhaven. Its stern bore the Hebrew letters for its name, “Tel Aviv,” while a swastika banner fluttered from the mast. And although the ship was Zionist-owned, its captain was a National Socialist Party member. Many years later a traveler aboard the ship recalled this symbolic combination as a “metaphysical absurdity.”/1 Absurd or not, this is but one vignette from a little-known chapter of history: The wide-ranging collaboration between Zionism and Hitler’s Third Reich.

    Common Aims

    “Some German officials opposed the arrangement. Germany’s Consul General in Jerusalem, Hans Döhle, for example, sharply criticized the Agreement on several occasions during 1937. He pointed out that it cost Germany the foreign exchange that the products exported to Palestine through the pact would bring if sold elsewhere. The Haavara monopoly sale of German goods to Palestine through a Jewish agency naturally angered German businessmen and Arabs there. Official German support for Zionism could lead to a loss of German markets throughout the Arab world. The British government also resented the arrangement. /34 A June 1937 German Foreign Office internal bulletin referred to the “foreign exchange sacrifices” that resulted from the Haavara. 3/5(..)

    Checkpoints??? Really? South Africa had it’s Bantustans but NEVER did they discriminate by having such humiliating checkpoints. There was free movement.

    The imprisonment of children, there were none in South Africa.

    There is not a single valid claim to counteract that Israel is NOT AN APARTHEID ROGUE STATE & BDS has to become more effective from countries to END this dehumanisation of the Palestinian people.

    Israel is a multi coloured , multi ethnic society where none of this apartheid exists .
    We do happen to have neighbours [ who are not interested whatsoever in having a peace with Israel esp those miscreants in Gaza] who delight in killing themselves and others for which reason we have built a separation BARRIER [ mainly a fence] to stop them coming into our territory.
    Israel is home to 2 million Arabs of all religions who participate fully in every aspect of civilain life even the High Court , parliament, hospitals at a high level and army.
    Now I ask all those innoramii below, who claim to know what apartheid was, how many Arab countries, let alone so called Pally land, permit Jews to live and function freely in their countries?!!
    The PLO , Hamas and Abbas have stated quite clearly that Jews are NOT welcome anywhere within their vicinity — THIS IS TRUE APARTHEID. – and practiced only by Arabs!
    BDS is an association that preaches anti Israel/ antiJewish sentiment [ and it does not matter to me if it has any Jewish members]and encourages apartheid and violence by Arab citizens all over the world against Israel and Jews ; especailly at institutions of education by barring free speech .
