Palestinians ask 50 countries to demand commercial sanctions on settlements



In a new campaign aimed at promoting international support for a settlement boycott, the Palestinian Authority last month sent letters to 50 countries, urging them to clamp down on companies doing business with Jewish settlements in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem. A senior Palestinian official told the Financial Times in a report published late Thursday that the Palestinian Foreign Ministry had requested that the governments addressed in the letters issue stringent guidelines to companies operating within their borders that conduct business with the settlements. The countries, it was stated, should instruct companies to either freeze their business dealings with the settlements or withdraw their investments altogether. Commercial activity in the settlements is illegal and constitutes a violation of international law, the letters said.


This is the best way for Palestine to deal with Israels illegal settlements go for the money. When the EU placed sanctions on companies in the illegal settlements Israel couldn't respond fast enough to try to get them lifted. When these countries are helping settlers they are helping terrorist for that alone all financial aid should be stopped. But Palestine is wasting their time with England and France though when it comes to Israel they are just as whipped as America. But at least as it shows in the article some countries are opening their eyes to Israels crimes and cutting off funding hopefully more countries will take off their blinders.

Can you post of a list of countries as your link is for subscribers only, so pretty useless. Did any of these countries take any notice of the demand?

Regards
