עצומה לחתימה של אזרחים ישראלים, נגד קבלתה של ישראל לארגון המדינות המפותחות, כל עוד היא מפרה זכויות אדם באופן הנוכחי. אנא העבירו לרשימות תפוצה נוספות אלף,מחסום ווטש ועוד) גם חתימות של ארגונים יתקבלו בברכה.  יצוין שהסנקציה הזו פחות מרחיקת לכת מחרם. תודה

Israeli Citizens Say: Do Not Approve Israel's OECD Membership Until It Abides by International Law

In May 2010 the OECD ministerial committee will vote on the admission of Israel as a member of the organization.

As Israeli citizens, we are concerned by the policies of the Israeli governments, policies which violate international law, violate the basic human rights of Palestinians under occupation and serve to instigate instability, violence and suffering in the Middle East.  We are also concerned by the double standards applied by some countries in the international community, especially the developed countries, towards Israel's violations. Such double standards imbue violent and blatantly illegal Israeli policies of land theft, torture and physical abuse of civilians with an aura of legitimacy.

We believe that only when the international community makes Israel accountable for its actions, can we hope to see a change in Israeli policies.

As Israeli citizens, we wish to voice our strong support for the call issued to OECD countries by numerous Palestinian organizations, and numerous international organizations, including Palestinian solidarity campaigns around the world. Please note that the call also refers to the racist policies towards, and discrimination against, those Palestinians who are Israeli citizens.

Rewarding Israel for severe human rights violations will bring about neither peace nor justice !
Please Do Not Approve Israel's OECD Membership Until It Abides by International Law !
