Relentless solidarity with Palestine from Galway, Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign

category galway | politics / elections | news report author Sunday April 15, 2007 16:50author by TD - Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign Report this post to the editors

Israel : Rogue state created by ethnic cleansing, specializes in state-terrorism and humanitarian crimes, sponsored by the US and EU

"The Palestinian intifada is a war of colonial liberation. We Israelis enthusiastically chose to become a colonialist society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justicication for all these activities ... we established an apartheid regime." (Michael Ben-Yair, Israeli Attorney General 1993-36).

Yesterday, for six hours, activists from the Galway branch of the IPSC manned an information stall outside Lynch's castle in Shop Street, gathering signatures for an Israeli Blood Diamonds petition and ...
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings ...
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings ...

urging the signees to also boycott Atlantic Homecare and Woodie's DIY stores on account of their unethical selling of Israeli manufactured goods, our information leaflet pointed out to them that the EU grants Israel special trading priviledges under the terms of the Euromed Agreement provided that Israel complies with international law and human rights requirements and this proviso is being blatantly and cynically ignored by the EU and Irish government, the info leaflet further pointed out to them that in 2005, Israeli gemstone exports were valued at $16 billion bankrolling the Israeli Ministry of Defence budget which in 2007 is $12 billion (in 2007, the value of Israeli gemstone exports is estimated to reach $18-20 billion).

This Saturday, we'll be at it again outside Lynch's castle from 12 noon to 6PM bearing witness to suffering Palestinian and baring our contempt and outrage against the spineless EU and Irish government, please join there if you can?.

The solidarity struggle in Beit Ummar- of course relegating an issue to a projected
need to identify with the violence of one people against another plays right into
the hands of the opportunists.

How many people in this campaign have volunteered to go to Palestine
and Israel to help with the IMC's/media/food campaigns and education?

I suggest you fund members to go out there and report back from the

Half of All Israeli Terror Victims Died in Six Years of Oslo War
- this was the ARAFART War which was totally unnecessary .
No wonder peace is now harder to achieve - if only the Arabs had learnt from
Gerry ,Martin and the IRA that you can talk and gradually get what you want .
SF realised that up here after 30 years- the Arabs have not learnt that in 90 years
BLAME THEIR LEADERS - not the Israelis !


Half of All Israeli Terror Victims Died in Six Years of Oslo War
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu and Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

Arab terrorists have killed 864 Israelis and wounded more than 14,000 others since they launched the Oslo War, also known as the Second Intifada, in October 2000.
The number of terrorism fatalities represents half of the 1,635 citizens who died in terrorist attacks since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
The statistics were reported Thursday by the National Insurance Institute (Bituach Leumi) in a press release ahead of Memorial Day, which falls on Monday.
Arab terrorists have killed 864 Israelis and wounded more than 14,000.

The Almagor terror victims' organization also recently released figures showing that no fewer than 177 innocent citizens, mostly Israeli Jews, were murdered in recent years in attacks perpetrated by terrorists freed from Israeli jails.
30 separate attacks by rescidivist terrorists, scores of Israelis were also seriously wounded.

The Palestinian Authority decision to launch the Oslo War in 2000 followed PA leader Yasser Arafat's refusal of an offer from then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak for a new Arab state.
Ehud Barak was ready to surrender more than 90 percent of lands in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, including much of Jerusalem in exchange for commitments from Arafat.
In December 2000, Imad Falouji, the PA Communications Minister at the time, said that the sustained terrorist campiagn "was already planned ever since [Yasser Arafat's] return from the last talks at Camp David, at which he stood up to President Clinton and firmly rejected the American terms."

A visit by former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, just a few days after the first attack by PA militiamen on their IDF counterparts in a joint patrol, was later used by Arafat as propaganda for inciting further attacks.
The PA later dubbed their terror war the "Al-Aksa Intifada," in a reference to one of the mosques on the Temple Mount.

The Oslo Peace Accords, which gave the Oslo War its name, were negotiated in Oslo, Norway, and signed in September 1993
The set of agreements set out to solve the Israeli-Arab conflict by providing the leadership of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) with guns and land in exchange for assurances of peace
At the signing ceremony in Washington, US President Bill Clinton called the Oslo Accords a "brave gamble." Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin admitted in an October 1994 speech in Casablanca that the Oslo initiative was a "calculated risk for peace."

Since last Independence Day, 66 Israeli civilians have died in terrorist attacks, including those who perished during the Second Lebanon War waged by Hizbullah.

Oslo War Attacks Continue
On Thursday, two IDF soldiers were lightly injured when Arab gunmen shot at a military jeep on Highway 443, near the Ofer military base west of Ramallah.

The soldiers are being treated for shrapnel injuries at the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. The attackers managed to evade capture
PA sources attributed the shooting to the Fatah's Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorist group. Fatah is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen).
On Thursday, two IDF soldiers were lightly injured when Arab gunmen shot at a military jeep.

Fatah-aligned terrorists have also claimed responsibility for a shooting attack on Israeli motorists on Highway 55 near Kalkilya, between Kfar Saba and the Karnei Shomron-Kedumim communities. The terrorists claimed that several Israelis were wounded, but neither the local Jewish towns nor the IDF reported any injuries.

Daily Israeli counter-terrorist operations continue to result in the capture of dozens of wanted terrorists
24 wanted men were captured by IDF forces throughout Judea and Samaria overnight Wednesday, including members of Fatah and the Islamist Hamas organizations, which currently jointly control the PA government. Several Islamic Jihad terrorists were also captured in the overnight series of raids.
