    UN list targets firms linked to Israeli settlements

    UN list targets firms linked to Israeli settlements

    JERUSALEM (AP) — The U.N. human rights office on Wednesday released a list of more than 100 companies it said are complicit in violating Palestinian human rights by operating in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank — a first-ever international attempt to name and shame businesses that has drawn fierce Israeli condemnation.

    The list’s publication after repeated delays escalated a looming showdown between Israel and the international community over its more than half-century policy of building settlements in the West Bank. Emboldened by a new U.S. Mideast initiative, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to annex Israel’s more than 100 settlements, while the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague has indicated she will soon launch a war-crimes investigation into settlement policies.
    ================================================== =======
    The whip was in the other hand during the Holocaust but now it rests easily in Israeli hands. Despite their promises to the Palestinians when Israel was founded by the UN in the late 1940s, the Israelis are now the abusers & thieves, stealing from the Palestinians as if it is their right to do so.

    One more reason to dissolve the organization that has become the tool for antisemites known as the United Nations. As if we needed more.
    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    The UN antisemitic? They took land away from the Palestinians & gave it to the Jews. That's hardly antisemitic. Now it's prosmitic & taking land away from the Palestinians.

    Jews makes about 0.2% of the world's population.
    It's completely absurd how a body claiming to set the international agenda is having its entire existence revolve around the promotion of antisemitism.

    You shoudn't be shocked by the accusation imo. Anyone any group that comments on the crimes of the Jewish state is by definition antisemitic
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    You cannot claim to be free from criticism or accountability just because you are Jewish as much as you think that should be the case.

    And Israel has been giving the UN the finger since they were fool enough to allow them into the organisation. That ain't gonna endear you to the organisations membership
