Handbook on Israeli Apartheid - by Stephen Lendman

Israel is a colonialist, apartheid repressive state.

In July 2005, a coalition of 171 Palestinian Civil Society organizations created the global BDS movement - for "Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel Until it Complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights" for Occupied Palestinians, Israeli Arabs, and Palestinian diaspora refugees.

Since 1948, dozens of UN resolutions condemned Israel's colonial occupation, decades of discriminatory policies, illegal land seizures, settlements, international law violations, and harsh oppression. They called for remedial action.

Nothing so far worked. Palestine remains occupied. Its people keep suffering. Their human rights are denied. Gaza's suffocating under siege. Abuses this extreme can't be tolerated. 

In solidarity, people of conscience demand justice and "call upon international civil society organizations and (supporters everywhere) to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to (apartheid) South Africa." 

Pressure's needed for "embargoes and sanctions....for the sake of justice and genuine peace."

Corporate Watch recently published a volume titled, "Targeting Israeli Apartheid: A Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Handbook."

Calling it a "guide many of us in the movement have been waiting for," it "demystif(ies) and expose(s) the daily reproduction of the occupation of Palestine."
