Laura: Just when you think degenerate leftists can’t be any more vile in their positions regarding the Jewish state, they explicitly come out endorsing hamas rocket fire at Israeli civilians. They are calling for the boycott of weapons sales to Israel so that hamas can fire rockets at Israelis unobstructed. These are sick, twisted, morally depraved people who see Israeli self-defense as probematic rather than the genocidal hamas terrorists who’s charter calls for the obliteration of Israel and the genocide of Jews. Every one of these signatories should be forced to endure dodging rocket fire in their neighborhoods. That worthless piece of excrement roger waters is among the supporters of this depraved cause. He is the guy who came out against Israel’s security fence, falsely calling it an “apartheid” wall. There is no other way to describe these miscreants other than calling them what they truly are, nazis. There is no other conclusion to be drawn except that they support the mass murder of Jews. Who is going to prevent hamas from receiving weapons? These scumbags don’t care about that. The left is constantly harassing the beseiged and belleaguered tiny Jewish state while it defends itself from attacks against genocidal enemies surrounding it. But they are silent on islamic Jew-hatred, on the real apartheid being practiced in muslim countries and the persecution and murder of non-muslims. Take note of the entertainers who signed this petition and boycott them.Nobel peace laureates call for Israel military boycott over Gaza assault
Letter with 52 signatories including artists and activists also denounces US and EU ‘complicity’ through weapons sales
The letter also denounces the US, EU and several developing countries for what it describes as their “complicity” through weapons sales and other military support in the attack that killed 160 Palestinians, many of them civilians, including about 35 children.
The 52 signatories include the Nobel peace laureates Mairead Maguire and Adolfo Pérez Esquivel; the film directors Mike Leigh and Ken Loach; the author Alice Walker; the US academic Noam Chomsky; Roger Waters of Pink Floyd; and Stéphane Hessel, a former French diplomat and Holocaust survivor who was co-author of the universal declaration of human rights.
“Horrified at the latest round of Israeli aggression against the 1.5 million Palestinians in the besieged and occupied Gaza Strip and conscious of the impunity that has enabled this new chapter in Israel’s decades-old violations of international law and Palestinian rights, we believe there is an urgent need for international action towards a mandatory, comprehensive military embargo against Israel,” the letter says.
“Such a measure has been subject to several UN resolutions and is similar to the arms embargo imposed against apartheid South Africa in the past.”
The letter accuses several countries of providing important military support that facilitated the assault on Gaza. “While the United States has been the largest sponsor of Israel, supplying billions of dollars of advanced military hardware every year, the role of the European Union must not go unnoticed, in particular its hefty subsidies to Israel’s military complex through its research programmes.
“Similarly, the growing military ties between Israel and the emerging economies of Brazil, India and South Korea are unconscionable given their nominal support for Palestinian freedom,” it says.
The letter opens with a quote from Nelson Mandela: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
The other signatories include John Dugard, a South African jurist and former UN special rapporteur in the occupied territories; Luisa Morgantini, former president of the European parliament; Cynthia McKinney, a former member of the US Congress; Ronnie Kasrils, a South African former cabinet minister; and the dramatist Caryl Churchill.
