Proposal for a Sustained Action Campiagn Against Israeli Apartheid and its American supporters

We who are not living in Gaza, or the West Bank,
or the Negev where the Israeli government is trying to
force the Bedouin out of the Negev...the desert!! We
those who do not live in Israel must find a way to dramatize
(as if it needs to be) what Israel is doing to the Palestinian

The same must be done to stop the US from waging it's criminal
wars of aggression. The country where I was born is, in the words
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 'the greatest purveyor of violence
on the planet.' And, it's rulers are waging war upon the world, and
it is just a matter of time, months perhaps, or a year at the most
before these wars are called WW III.

In the 1960's at the height of the Vietnam War there were protests
across the planet against that war. Many were against the US embassies;
they were sometimes under seige. They were the symbols of the imperial
power, oppression, and of the government that waged a criminal war against
people of colour around the world.

There were also many protests at US military bases in the US and abroad,
and their symbols of power: aircraft carriers.

In today's world we have access to unprecedented amounts of information
at such a rapid pace that it is astonishing to anyone who grew up before
the internet, and had to research and access their information by hand via
newspapers, in libraries, or places containing official records.

But, there is a downside. Twitter, and other such site can put a staggering
amount of articles, videos and information at one's disposal that they
cannot possibly read even half of it, unless all they do is just sit at a
monitor and read. And, I'd need an IV drip of caffeine in my arms.

All the information, all the brilliant articles are no good unless it is
to serve action. And, the internet can connect people together, but it can
also keep them/us from taking more direct action as I did in the 1970's.
I was in the takeover of the Statue of Liberty June 6, 1976.

By the way it's an excellent way to see it. No tourists, no hassle, well
except for those guys trying to shove some kind of court order through the
door. But, hey we couldn't read that night;-

But, to go back to what the Israel government has and is doing to the Palestinian people. They are treating them as they had once been treated in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. The Zionists don't have gas chambers; they just drop White Phosphorous,
and napalm on populated areas, and fire bombs and rockets into them.

Those of us in the rest of the world must conduct a sustained campaign against
Zionists and Nazi-like American regimes.

For one: we must build a movement this year to shut down every Israeli and
American embassy and Consulate office throughout the world, or to to make it
very difficult for those offices to operate.

We must not allow ourselves to be beaten, but to let them know that they will not
be able to club people without facing the most forceful resistance.
This is a battle to stop brutatlity, and genocide from being waged against defenseless peoples by these two governments. Protests can be non-violent but forcefully so...chaining of people across the gates of these buildings, for starters.

And every Israeli company that has offices operating outside of Israel should
face disruption to make business as usual impossible.

The same with US companies. The focus needs to be narrowed..oil, banks,
energy, investment firms, insurance too,CIA and Mossad front companies.

This is why. What is happening in Israel is Apartheid (and 'slow drip
genocide')to the Palestinian people because of the weapons used: Depleted
Uranium, White Phosphorous, deadly CS-tear gas, the destruction of communities.

And what has beeb and is happening in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia...anyplace the US
uses its horrible genocide

It is better put by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the
Crime of Genocide:

Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Both the United States and Israel were the strongest supporters of the South
African apartheid regime...and without that support, particularly that of the
US the Apartheid regime would have collapsed earlier.

These are the two main countries oppressing the Palestinian and all Muslim
peoples, and we must begin a sustained campaigned of action to force change.
