To: Palestinian territories and Golan Height Advocacy Initiative (OPGAI)

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

Does Baird even know what they are?

Israeli newspaper outlines Palestinian demands

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird has been actively supporting the "unconditional" ceasefire proposed by Netanyahu and backed by Egypt. While it appears "humanitarian", an unconditional ceasefire would mean going back to the status quo before the recent hostilities and continuing Israel's punishing blockade of Gaza. But has Baird even considered what the Palestinians are asking for? It's actually quite reasonable.
