Israel’s General Election has been won by Benjamin Netanyahu’s extreme right-wing Likud party, sending a clear message to the world that the Israeli people are happy with the status quo of keeping the Palestinians under continuous occupation and siege.

 

Just one day before the election, Netanyahu stood in an East Jerusalem settlement and pledged in a televised interview that he would never agree to a Palestinian state if he was re-elected, and made an election commitment not to halt settlement construction.

 

He had also boasted that he built the settlement of Har Homa as “a way of stopping Bethlehem from moving toward Jerusalem.” On election day, he further whipped up racism with his statement of Arab voters coming out in droves

 

The next day, he and his party were re-elected to power with a decisive majority, giving a mandate to his election commitments - commitments which fly in the face of any ‘peace process’, freedom and justice for Palestinians, and international law.

 

Press reports are that Obama’s administration was driven to new levels of fury by Netanyahu’s comments, and that Obama is ‘reassessing’ his options

 

Where are similar statements from our government? Tell the British government – do you really believe that continuing a policy of carrots, not sticks, towards Netanyahu is helping? 

 

Take Action – SANCTIONS NOW!
