Mark your calendars – the 6th International Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) will take place across the globe from from the 1st to the 14th of March 2010!
Since it was first launched in 2005, IAW has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year, more than 40 cities around the world participated in the week’s activities, which took place in the wake of Israel’s brutal assault against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. IAW continues to grow with new cities joining this year.
IAW 2010 takes place following a year of incredible successes for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on the global level. Lectures, films, and actions will highlight some of theses successes along with the many injustices that continue to make BDS so crucial in the battle to end Israeli Apartheid. Speakers and full programme for each city will be available soon.
If you are planning to organize IAW in your city in 2010, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations to Nidal El Khairy for winning the first international Israeli Apartheid Week poster competition.
HEADS UP! the VILE Jew-hating, RACIST, anti-Semite, BEN WHITE will ‘stink-up’ the halls of Columbia tomorrow evening, Tuesday, March 2, 2010
We attended our first Fakestinian “Apartheid” in 2006. It’s disgusting. It’s racism. It’s lies ,ALL lies . AMERICA must demand an END to our colleges being used to propagandize our students with this abhorrence; these racist lies that are promoted for a week….each year…without opposition! The presence of anyone who wishes to promote the TRUTH regarding the REAL history of Israel and the Middle East…is shut-down…run out of ‘Dodge’. After all, Columbia already has a long history of being ‘in bed’ with the Fakestinians; their racist, hate-filled propaganda is promoted without question. And who is Ben White?
“Ben White is a freelance journalist and author of “Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide”. A graduate (subject: English Literature) of Cambridge University in 2005 with a “cut glass” English accent, his articles have been published frequently in the Guardian, New Statesman, Counterpunch and Electronic Intifada. His hostility to Israel is thought to come from his Christian ‘supercessionist’ beliefs (that is, the belief that the Bible contains nothing to connect the land of Israel with the Jewish people).
White writes about what he terms “Palestine/Israel” to the point of near obsession. An open supporter of the “one-state solution”, he regularly accuses Israel of ethnic cleansing, attributes the malicious slurs of colonization, racism and apartheid to Israel, (White) acts as an apologist for Islamist violence against the Jewish state, draws parallels between Nazi Germany and Zionism, has a problem with the police arresting those involved in plots to bomb synagogues, and has even gone as far as to flirt with Holocaust revisionism.”
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. DEMAND AN END TO THE FAKESTINIAN LIES.
