The Upswing in Israeli Aggression
Things are really getting out of hand in the occupied territories and our
reports may have to become more frequent to keep up with the rapidly
evolving situation. We must write to let you know what is going on and
ask you to take urgent actions on all fronts (media, politicians, on the
ground etc). On the last day of the conference in Bil’in, the Israeli
army was particularly violent against the demonstrators injuring
Palestinians and Internationals. The most critical injury was to Imad
Rizka, a Palestinian from Jaffa inside the Green line (see
http://www.imemc.org/article/58514 including picture of Imad).
We have acts of popular resistance in Al-Walaja and Beit Jala planned
this Sunday. Email me if you want more details on times etc.
Protest AIPAC (Apartheid Israel Pirates Against Coexistence), everywhere.
as in Portland, Oregon this Sunday
For Israel, membership in the OECD would mean a victory of legitimacy, that the violations of international law are rewarded and all the member countries of OECD will be accomplices of the illegal Israeli occupation, since according to the European law, European countries are forbidden to recognize the Israeli occupation to the Palestinian territories. Yet by granting Israel membership in the OECD, they will be doing exactly that.
Israel has refused to comply with the OECD demand to provide statistical data which applies only to the internationally-recognized parts of Israel , excluding the illegal settlements in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).
OECD members will knowingly accept Israel to the organization based on deceptive statistics provided by the latter, statistics which conceal the occupation while simultaneously treating it as a permanent fact. It only takes one OECD country to oppose the integration of Israel into the organization in order to block the process.
Please, send a letter of protest to the delegation of OECD of your country, demanding to vote NO to Israel 's inclusion in economic organization. It only takes you a few minutes to act on this. In the link below you can find the list of OECD member-states and their email addresses (write to them):
