Dear friends,

On behalf of the Canada Palestine Support Network (CanPalNet) I am writing to add our name as an endorser of your statement. The three objectives which you outline in your statement also are our objectives. The steps you encourage us to undertake to achieve these objectives make sense. We shall work to the best of our capacities, in coordination with others in Canada, to generate, reinforce and expand initiatives for boycott, sanctions and divestment.

Sincerely,
Mordecai Briemberg

Bethlehem, 14 July 2005

Dear Partners, friends and Supporters all over the globe;

On the behalf many the Palestinian Civil Society organizations (see attached call with list of Palestinian organizations), I am sending the attached call to the our supporters and partners in international community requesting a compressive boycott, divestment and sanctions on Israel.

Today the Israeli colonialist and racist entity is escalating its oppressive and inhuman systemic policies and measures against the whole Palestinian people every where. Israel, protected by the USA and its allies, is becoming a dangerous state acts above the law and seems to get way with its crimes and violation of the international legitimacy and human rights principles. The late construction of the colonial separation wall around the Palestinians populated areas is a best example of the Israeli racism. The wall is designed and constructed in intentions to put the Palestinian population inside ghettos, not only separates Palestinians from Israelis, but also isolated Palestinians from each others and their land. The illegal building of the Zionist colonies and Jewish-only-roads, on the land taken by force from the Palestinian farmers in West Bank, added to the daily suffering and sense of injustice among the Palestinians citizens, reinforcing, at the same time,a racist discriminatory and the racial superiority of the Israeli settlers.

The Israeli occupation and the daily humiliation and aggression continues to touch every single Palestinian citizens in every aspect of our daily life.

Using the occasion of one year on the ICJ decision of considering the wall as illegal, and refusal the state of Israel to comply with the court decisions, a wide sector of the Palestinian Civil Society organizations including NGOs, Professional associations, political parties, women organizations and and refugee committees — from inside and outside Palestine — have launched a collective call to the international community requesting compressive boycott - Divest and sanctions on Israel. While, we are certain of your support to our struggle against the oppression, occupation and racism, we seek your endorsement of this call. Whenever possible organize boycott campaigns— including economic, cultural, academic, sport, social boycott— in your respective societies as well as making pressure on governments to halt their cooperation with the state of Israel until its complete withdrawal from the Occupied Palestinian territories, and the compliance with the international legitimacy and laws.

In Solidarity

Independent Jewish Voices Condemns Israel's Gaza Massacre

December 28, 2008

The Israeli military has unleashed its most vicious air assault against the people of Gaza in decades, killing over 280 Gazans and wounding over 700. Despite claims by the Israeli leadership that they are trying to avoid civilians the attacks have been concentrated on Gaza City and the towns of Khan Younis and Rafah. Israeli television reports that Israeli troops are massing on the border "in preparation for a supplementary ground offensive".

Independent Jewish Voices (Canada) condemns this murderous escalation of violence by the Israeli government. Diana Ralph, IJV Coordinator calls this assault "completely disproportionate to the unsupportable firing of Qassam rockets by Hamas fighters which killed one Israeli. It's important to put this into the context of the deadly siege of Gaza by the Israeli forces, which continued in violation of the terms of the recent six month truce between Israel and Gaza. In the ethics of violent conflicts, it is the responsibility of the force wielding power - the Israeli government in this case - to create the conditions for a just peace."
