 BOYCOTT from Within: Citizens of State of Israel Charge it with Genocide

Citizens of Israel Charge Israel with Genocide

<!– –>

Boycott from Within has sent the following letter to the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide.

We encourage others to do the same at http://www.un.org/en/preventgenocide/adviser/contactform.asp?address=1.

You may use this letter.

Dear Madame/Sir,
We are citizens of Israel who oppose our government’s policies of colonialism, occupation and apartheid against the Palestinian people and its actions which may amount to genocide.

We write to you following 13 days (already a month) of an ongoing massacre, which is being perpetrated by Israel in the besieged Gaza Strip.

As the death toll is rising, it now stands at 400 casualties and 3100 injured (Now standing at 2,000 dead and 9,000 injured).

The UN has declared, via UNICEF, that over a third of the victims are children.

As you well know, this massacre was preceded by a month of massive Israeli violence and political persecution in the occupied West Bank, including the arrest of hundreds of so-called “Hamas-affiliated” men and boys. Meanwhile, Israeli mobs run wild in the streets of our cities, shouting the chilling “Death to the Arabs” chants (as well as “Death to the Leftists”).

You cannot ignore the fact, especially during this UN-declared “year of solidarity with the Palestinian people”, that two similar massacres have already been perpetrated by Israel in the short span of 6 years;

1. that Gaza suffocates under Israel’s hermetic siege;

2. that Israel has been perpetrating an ongoing ethnic cleansing against the indigenous people of Palestine since 1948 and up to this day; and

3. that Israel believes it may exterminate hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza every two years and do so with full impunity.

The UN states that “Where genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity do occur, the International Criminal Court, which is separate and independent from the UN, is empowered to investigate and prosecute those most responsible if a state is unwilling or unable to exercise jurisdiction over alleged perpetrators.”

Israel is well beyond the point of prevention and we, its privileged citizens, are hereby charging it with genocide.

We demand that your office will do everything in its power to halt Israeli genocide as it is taking place. We demand that you take immediate action to prevent Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people. We will be following your conduct on this matter.

Sincerely,
BOYCOTT! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call from Within
