Help End "Israeli" Apartheid!

The UC Divestment movement against the apartheid state of "Israel" is picking up momentum, be a part of it NOW!

To UCI Administration:

We, the undersigned, are appalled by the human rights abuses against Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli government, the continual military occupation and colonization of Palestinian territory by Israeli armed forces and settlers, the forcible eviction of Palestinians from their homes, and the demolition of Palestinian dwellings, neighborhoods and towns.

We categorically condemn the loss of any innocent life, Israeli or Palestinian. We therefore call on UC Irvine and the UC system (1) to use its influence--political and financial--to encourage the United States government to suspend its military aid and arms sales to Israel, and (2) to divest its $54 million in investments from Israel, from all companies that manufacture arms and other military hardware sold to Israel, and from companies that sell such arms and military hardware to Israel, until these conditions are met:

  • Israel is in compliance with United Nations Resolution 242 which notes the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war, and which calls for withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from occupied territories.
  • Israel is in compliance with the United Nations Committee Against Torture 2001 Report which recommends that Israel's use of legal torture be ended.
  • In compliance with the Fourth Geneva Convention ("The occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into territories it occupies"; Article 49, paragraph 6), Israel ceases building new settlements, and vacates existing settlements, in the Occupied Territories.
  • Israel acknowledges in principle the applicability of United Nations Resolution 194 with respect to the rights of refugees, and accepts that refugees should either be allowed to return to their former lands or else be compensated for their losses, as agreed by the Palestinians and Israelis in bilateral negotiations.

UN resolution 181. Palestinians could have had a state in 1947. But no, they wanted it all.

If I were Israel I wouldn't give Palestinians much. You had your chance and screwed up.

If I were a Palestinian I would be pissed at my parents and grandparents for being so stupid.

Israel is not going anywhere, get used to that.

Funny how the Zionist supporters love to mention the UN with regards to the partition plan, but completely ignore 65 UN resolutions condemning Israeli actions.

Israel is the largest violator of UN resolutions in the world.

Funny how Arabs violently disregarded UN 181, claiming that the UN had no authority to issue it, and then once they lost the war that they started instead of obeying UN 181 and getting a state in peace, the Arabs now try tohide behind that same UN that has no authority.

You're like the guy who murders your parents and then cries for mercy from the court because you're an orphan.

Life doesn't work that way.

You chose war. You lost. It's over now. Tough luck. Move on.
