ISRAELI APARTHEID: THE UNION OF PROGRESSIVE JEWS


Archives

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium (UPJB) calls for a rally of citizens on March 21 next (18 to 20 hours, Avenue Louise in Brussels, opposite the Conrad Hotel)

 

The next Sunday, March 21, the Conrad Hotel will host a gala dinner organized by the ‘Israel Bonds International Europe “with, as the guest of honor, the Israeli foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman.

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium would recall that the money invested by policyholders in Israeli government Bonds, is largely used to perpetuate the occupation and colonization of Palestinian territories, in flagrant violation of international law.

She also wishes to recall that Avigdor Lieberman, besides his ministerial duties, is the leader of Israel Beteinou (Israel Our Home), a political party openly racist and Arabophobia.

Avigdor Lieberman claims to be ‘democratic’, but his populist rhetoric and proposals regarding the fate of Arab citizens of Israel, is far from the universal conception of democracy. He declared in September 2006 (interview with the newspaper HaZofeh): “I am absolutely in favor of democracy but when there is contradiction between democratic values and Jewish values, Jewish and Zionist values come in first place.”

Since 2001, he proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. More recently he has improved his plan. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas. Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.

The Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium considers that such a person is undesirable on Belgian territory. So she called civil society of our country and the political representatives to join it on March 21 next 18 to 20h, opposite the Conrad Hotel, Avenue Louise, 1050 Brussels, for a protest meeting against the presence of Avigdor Lieberman in the hotel launches.

Important Note: We have assured the police that this meeting would be conducted with dignity. We rely on the sense of responsibility of all those who will join us.

The slogans that we offer:

No to Lieberman’s ethnic cleansing and racist mass treatment Stop the blockade of Gaza Stop the colonization of the West Bank and East Jerusalem Stop building the wall of annexation Respect international law

For the Union of Progressive Jews of Belgium Anne and Henry Grauwels Wajnblum, Co-Chairs

Be happy


Sometimes we have to fight if we want to be happy. We can not be happy if we are innocent and incarcerated in prison.

Think of all those people who were imprisoned in the Guantanamo camp. Think of all those Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli jails.

And the liberation of all these people will make us happy.

Progrom

PROGROM

A pogrom is a form of riot directed against a particular group, whether ethnic, religious, or other, and characterized by killings and destruction of their homes, businesses, and religious centers. The term was originally used to denote extensive violence against Jews – either spontaneous or premeditated – but in English it is also applied to similar incidents against other minority groups.
