Petition for peace sanctions

Dear All,

The petition below asks the PM to introduce sanctions against Israel.

"Israeli must be punished for its failure to adhere to the Geneva convention concerning the collective punishment of the citizens of Gaza. Israeli tactics are cruel, malicious and demonstrate that Israel is not interested in the peace process or a Palestinian State. They are creating the ideal breeding ground for extremism, sabotaging peace efforts and squandering the good will they have been given."

Thanks Payam for letting me know about this.

I don't really follow Nick Clegg, always assume Sheik Vince Cable is the master, but his call for the UK to stop arming the IDF is to be welcomed...so yes if the Liberal Democrats do good and talk good, well good.

Likewise if Hamas were armed with F16 and kicking the fuck out of Tel Aviv, if they were armed by the world's only hyper-power, building walls around israeli settlements, killing fishermen and legtimising it all with amazing PR...I would be focussing on them a bit more, while still calling on the Israelis to end sending in their crappy homemade rockets. Peace and justice please.

Can't you see all the blood flowing out of your TV too!

The Jewish state is the ultimate threat to humanity and our notion of humanism. Christianity, Islam and humanism came along with an attempt to amend Jewish tribal fundamentalism and to replace it with universal ethics. Enlightenment, liberalism and emancipation allowed Jews to redeem themselves from their ancient tribal supremacist traits. Since the mid 19th century, many Jews had been breaking out of their cultural and tribal chain. Tragically enough, Zionism managed to pull many Jews back in. Currently, Israel and Zionism are the only collective voice available for Jews.

The last twelve days of merciless offensive against the Palestinian civilian population does not leave any room for doubt. Israel is the gravest danger to world peace. Clearly the nations made a tragic mistake in 1947 giving a volatile racially orientated identity an opportunity to set itself into a national state. However, the nations’ duty now is to peacefully dismantle that state before it is too late. We must do it before the Jewish state and its forceful lobbies around the world manage to pull us all into a global war in the ‘name’ of one banal populist ideology or another (democracy, war against terror, cultural clash and so on). We have to wake up now before our one and only planet is transformed into a bursting boil of hatred.
