UAE-Israel Agreement: An abandonment of Palestinian rights that must be rejected

Last week’s announcement of the normalisation of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is no cause for celebration. While it should come as little surprise given that friendly relations between the two were an open secret for decades, the formalisation of the agreement is nevertheless paid for in the negation of Palestinian fundamental rights – not least the right to self-determination. Instead of centring Palestinian rights as the pivot upon which to build a just and sustainable peace, this agreement actually does the opposite; it gives important diplomatic cover to Israel’s ongoing violations of these rights. This is … Continue reading

Sunset for international law? Israel’s annexation plan and the re-partition of Palestine

From the first of July the government of Israel is planning to bring forth legislation to unilaterally annex Israel’s illegal settlements and the Jordan Valley region of the Palestinian West Bank. This constitutes an area of roughly 30% of the West Bank, and will be in addition to Israel’s already illegal annexations of Palestinian East Jerusalem and the Syrian Golan Heights. This is an attempt to re-partition Palestine, and represents the latest phase in the ongoing Nakba endured by the Palestinian people. The annexation plan eliminates whatever diminished prospect still exists of achieving a viable sovereign independent state. In its … Continue reading

Ahead of AXA’s AGM, let’s tell AXA: Stop financing Israeli apartheid!

French insurance company AXA will hold its annual shareholders’ meeting on June 30. We need to make sure that divestment from Israeli apartheid is at the top of their agenda. Despite claims of social responsibility, AXA has almost tripled its investment in three Israeli banks that fund Israel’s illegal settlements. AXA also owns 9.03% of Equitable Holdings, which invests in five complicit Israeli banks and in Israel’s largest private arms company, Elbit Systems, which touts its weapons and surveillance technologies as “field-tested” on Palestinians. Just recently, the five Israeli banks were named in the United Nations’ list of complicit companies … Continue reading

On eve of annexation, European Parliament shamefully consents to EU-Israel aviation agreement

Yesterday the European Parliament showed how empty the EU’s words of condemnation against Israel’s imminent annexation of parts of the occupied Palestinian West Bank are by voting to give consent to the ratification of the EU-Israel Aviation Agreement. While the EU ostensibly opposes Israel’s annexation of Palestinian land, with Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell saying that such a step “cannot pass unchallenged”, it has continued to lavish Israel with gifts. Last night’s vote is only the latest in a series of enticements from the EU to Israel, which have fuelled decades of impunity and human rights abuses against Palestinians. On … Continue reading

Today is Nakba Day, which marks the 72nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (‘Catastrophe’) which saw the expulsion of over 750,000 people, two-thirds of the indigenous people of Palestine, forcibly uprooted from their homeland in a brutal act of ethnic cleansing that facilitated the foundation of the Apartheid State of Israel. Today, Palestinian refugees are trapped in an ongoing Nakba, many of them risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean to flee conditions in Syria, facing endemic poverty and discrimination in Lebanon, discriminated against as unrecognised internally displaced placed people inside the Apartheid State of Israel, subject to attacks by Israeli … Continue reading
