Anti-Israel Petitions Supported by Israeli Academics
Israeli Anti-Zionists in the UK deplore "outrages" perpetrated by Israel , safe themselves from being trageted by Palestinian Terrorists

From: roland@rantam.net (Roland Rance & Inbar Tamari)

We, Israeli Jews resident in the UK, deplore the outrages perpetrated on the
Palestinian population by the Israeli government. What we are witnessing is
the true face of the 'Peace process': Israel, the occupying power, dictates
and the Palestinians are left with the option: put up or shut up!

While the Palestinians acquiesced, Israel demanded further concessions and

continued to bend the terms of the 'Peace process'.  Meanwhile, Israel  changed the map of the Occupied Territories: accelerating the building and

extension of exclusively Jewish settlements. These settlements and the roads
linking them to Israel were, of course, built on land expropriated from  Palestinians, in gross violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

As a result, the areas left to the Palestinians are mere enclaves, cut off

from each other, utterly dependent on Israel. Such enclaves, used to exclude
an ethnic population from social and political rights, while keeping them  disenfranchised and subservient, have a name: Bantustans.  Such a policy  also has a name: apartheid.

In the 1980s, Israel debated what to do with the 'excessively large' number
of Palestinians it had netted in the 1967 war.  Two alternative solutions  were proposed: apartheid or expulsion.  The Israeli variations on the  apartheid theme were proposed (such as the Allon Plan).  The peace terms on
offer today are in line with these plans.

To the dismay of the Israeli Government, the Palestinian people would not  put up or shut up with apartheid masquerading as peace process. The Israeli
barbaric response is the mowing down of unarmed civilians utilising Apache

gun-ships and tanks. Israel inflicts collective punishment, such as  destruction of homes and cutting of utilities. All because the
will not accept apartheid.

The Israeli barbaric response was not only confined to the Occupied  Territories, but was also directed against the Palestinian population within
Israel proper.  The Israeli police participated or stood by as armed  Israelis went on the rampage. From Tel Aviv to Nazareth it was “open season”
on Palestinians. To-date, thirteen Israeli Palestinians were killed, among

them, Asil Asalih, a Palestinian Israeli peace activist, who was murdered by
Israeli police.

The truth is now out and the Oslo sham cannot be resurrected. The
of a peace unilaterally defined by Israel will not work: such a peace will

never hold.  Only a genuine engagement with the Palestinians will end the  bloodshed.  Israel must accept its obligations under international law, such
as the Fourth Geneva Convention, as well as UN resolutions and the immediate
and unconditional Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied in  1967.
