Boycott US Israel Statement
25 Mar 2008
MAHATMA GHANDI

"Palestine
belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the
English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the
Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be
justified by any code of conduct. The Mandates have no sanction but
that of the last War. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to
reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews
partly or wholly as their national home. I am not defending the Arab
excesses. I wish they had chosen the way of non-violence in resisting
what they rightly regarded as an unwarranted encroachment upon their
country. But according to the accepted canons of right and wrong,
nothing can be said against the Arab resistance in the face of
overwhelming odds."
Albert Einstein;"It is however
certain that these generations to come will have lessons to learn from
the extraordinary life of Mohandas Gandhi"

MAHATMA GHANDI

"Palestine
belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the
English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the
Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be
justified by any code of conduct. The Mandates have no sanction but
that of the last War. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to
reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews
partly or wholly as their national home. I am not defending the Arab
excesses. I wish they had chosen the way of non-violence in resisting
what they rightly regarded as an unwarranted encroachment upon their
country. But according to the accepted canons of right and wrong,
nothing can be said against the Arab resistance in the face of
overwhelming odds."


Perhaps one of the most appropriate for remembering this great soul of
Ghandi, is the tribute from one of Israel's most intelligent sons,
Albert Einstein; "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a
one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood." It is however
certain that these generations to come will have lessons to learn from
the extraordinary life of Mohandas Gandhi"

Palestine for the sake of peace and the children of the middle-east,
will need to make a sacrifice and go a step further than what Mahatma
Gandhi suggested and recognize the state of Israel. Israel needs to
start a GENUINE dialogue and stop the blame game and delaying game of
pre-conditions. The solution itself is really simple., every child on
the street knows that a return to the '67 borders is the solution.

In Ireland we understand what the word (Shoah) Holocaust, (The Great
Hunger) means. Believe me, we understand, its in our blood and our
genes. Between 1845 - 1847 our population, was reduced from 9 million
to 3 million by ethnic cleansing, by systematic, calculated,
heartless, engineered famine. The revisionist historians have tried to
re-write our history but this is fact. Our country too, lost 6 million
people. It is so difficult, to forgive this but we must forgive and
move on, for the future and for our children's sake.

The publication
http://www.engageonline.org.uk/ressources/funny/index.html explains
this committee's compassion for the Jewish dilemma in this matter but
the Palestinian and Arab positions must be respected too.

As an Irish people overseas, who are outraged by the systematic ethnic
cleansing, being carried out currently in Gaza Concentration Camp, we
have found the above, a most informative source, thus far, in trying
to understand Israel and these war crimes. Our only reservation, is
the author's analysis of Leon Trotsky.


At this point, the only further obsevation we would make, is that we
are in danger of allowing cerebral masturbation, to become a
substitute for genuine human compassion and action, for the victims of
the victims of genocidal war crimes. Currently monstrous war crimes
are being committed by the US and Israel.



We believe our first action, must be a well organized, International
Boycott of all countries currently guilty of war crimes. A simple
majority of nations voting at the UN, should decide this matter
immediately. In the meantime, we are currently boycotting all American
and Israeli goods, music labels, film corporations, media
corporations, sport franchises, airlines, banking and services. There
are alternatives, we urge all intelligent people of goodwill, to be
ethical shoppers worldwide, including compassionate Americans and Jews
to do the same.



We need help with organizing this in Ireland, in an effective peaceful
international way. We also need to find effective united ways, to deal
with the considerable dis-information in the media, from very powerful
agencies. This campaign to be effective and not fall foul, to black
propaganda, must dis-associate itself entirely, from all violence,
justified or not, to be effective.

The propaganda and lies will come, so please, keep it peaceful, keep
it simple and stay

united.

To stay United, again, we must keep it simple, division and those who
promote it,

is a friend of the enemy.



United we stand, Divided we fall.


BOYCOTT THE USA AND ISRAEL NOW !


Anyone who would like to build this movement in Boston organize and

Impossible standards
25 Mar 2008
If we boycotted all countries that were guilty of human rights violations, we'd be limited to the cultural and material exports of Sweden.

Like Abba, everyone?

How about lutefisk?
Boycott? Do it right
27 Mar 2008
With theproposed boycott of Israeli goods, you have to wonder to what extreme goods should be boycotted…

I’ve always been a firm believer that if you do something, you should do it entirely, with full commitment. Don’t ever give a half hearted attempt at anything, because you at the end of the day will not achieve your desired goal, so I guess in the boycott Israel situation full force should be applied!

Now comes the next step in putting this boycott together. What are the Israeli products to boycott? I suppose people will look for the obvious stuff like pickles, olives and humus, but who are we really kidding? They have the best olives, pickles and humus. My tummy has much more of say than any political agenda that people seem to believe in because of ignorance, indoctrination and obvious misunderstanding of fact.

So I guess you should hit home with serious products, ones that would make a dent in everyone’s’ lives… So here is my proposed list:

The Cell phone. Don’t use those ridiculous modern appendages that cause way too much trouble in the world!! For those of you who don’t know, Israel is the developer of the modern cell phone.

For those of you who feel that you can’t relinquish the cell phone, I suppose you can show your boycott views by not using you voice mail. Yes Israel is the proud inventor of voice mail technology

Windows NP and XP. We all know we could do without these products. So stop using them and show Israel who is boss!

For those of you who have already taken this step, you should really go further with your boycott and refuse to use all Pentium MMX Chip technology, Pentium-4 microprocessors and Centrino processors. We all know that all the top computers are using other products (as if), so lets stop using only the most powerful chips on the market!

AOL instant messenger software..

PC anti virus software. This one we can for sure do without… All our computers must be immune to all the lurgys floating around the net.

For those of you who aren’t so brave, why don’t you boycott firewall technology?

I know I know… there are those of you out there who don’t use cell phones and computers and are in a dire need for a product to boycott, don’t worry! We can move into the medical field.

Israel developed the first fully computerized, non-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer. So any product that has developed from this technology should be boycotted. There is no reason why we should spot breast cancer and save lives by using Israeli technology!

Israel also invented a computerized system to ensure the proper administration of medications. Boycott this technology! Lets rather rely on humans to do so and allow for the possibility of human error to become a part of vital drug administration. We all know that discrepancies of particular drug in minute amounts are lethal, but who cares!! So long as we boycott Israel!

There is also Heart Attack Blood Tests Diagnosis by phone

“Gut Cam” – an ingestible pill video camera to diagnose cancer.

Blue-Light , skin damage free acne treatment

For those of you who are getting despondent because you have no use for cell phones, computers, or the medical profession, well we can further move onto the farming profession.

Why use a product that works with Drip Irrigation Technology for farmers that conserves water? We all know that water is a commodity that we have plenty of, so no need to conserve it right?

Solar technology? Only the greatest way to harness energy… don’t use this technology that would only make life simpler.

I reached the end of my short list… So I guess if you don’t use cell phones, computers, the medical profession, or care about the earth and the repercussions of not using sustainable technology to make a change, you probably are going to have to settle for boycotting the pickle.

Boycotting Israel would simply be your move to send the world back a couple years in developments that save lives, make the world an easier place to live in (from a technological and environmental point of view) and limit growth in South Africa itself. Educate yourself about the fact in this situation! Stop being indoctrinated by a blatantly obvious Anti Semitic news teams and learn. Not all that you see and hear on the news is true. Empower yourself to be knowledgeable. Don’t receive knowledge from one sided, radical organisations.

I hope that all of you people who choose to boycott Israel will one day need the medical technology that is flowing from Israel. Not so that it wont be available to you, as I know Israel would never hold back advances in medical and other technology to help humanity, but so that you will have to accept it with the humble pie that can only come because of your ignorance, stupidity and your lack of knowledge!
