Boycott of Israel ‘immoral, unjustified,’ Netanyahu says

Efforts to boycott Israel are neither moral nor justified, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the opening of Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting, amid a growing public sense that the boycott and divestment movement is gaining traction.

Moreover, Netanyahu said, these efforts will not achieve their aims.

“First of all, they cause the Palestinians to become entrenched behind their obstinate positions and push peace farther away, and secondly, no pressure will cause me to give up Israeli vital interests, first and foremost the security of Israeli citizens,” Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu’s comments came a day after US Secretary of State John Kerry said at the Munich Security Conference that the Israeli-Palestinian status quo is not sustainable and illusory.

“You see for Israel there is an increasing delegitimization campaign that has been building up,” Kerry said. “People are very sensitive to it, there is talk of boycott and other kinds of things. Are we all going to be better with all of that?”

Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz told reporters at the beginning of the meeting that Kerry’s words were “offensive and unacceptable.” He said that Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with “a gun against its head.” Steinitz also said that this could harm the negotiations by increasing the Palestinian motivation to torpedo them. A failure of the talks, according to this logic, would be blamed on Israel, thereby increasing the boycott calls.

Following Netanyahu’s comments, Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud Beytenu) commended the prime minister for his “hard line” against Kerry.

“[US President Barack] Obama and Kerry are acting unilaterally and only putting pressure on Israel,” Hotovely said. “[Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] is calmly maintaining his positions, while Israel is being told to make painful concessions that endanger it and its citizens. That is not how negotiations should be run.”

Bayit Yehudi faction chairwoman Ayelet Shaked pointed to what she said is faulty logic behind Kerry’s threat: “While in 2013, Israel had a record high in imports, Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to lay the groundwork for an economic boycott.”

The prime minister also faced criticism from the Left in relation to his handling of the peace process.

“Netanyahu exposed us to the threat of sanctions, which is even more dangerous than Iran,” MK Merav Michaeli (Labor). “Israeli security is a fantasy if we don’t have a diplomatic treaty, and that includes our economic security.”

Michaeli called for Netanyahu to “wake up, take responsibility for the country and stop being prime minister of the settlers, be every citizen’s prime minister.”

With Israeli politicians pouncing on Kerry for allegedly encouraging a boycott against Israel, the State Department issued a statement Sunday urging that Kerry’s words be portrayed “accurately.”

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that Kerry has a “proud record of over three decades of steadfast support for Israel’s security and well-being, including staunch opposition to boycotts. Just last year, while briefing Foreign Ministers at an EU conference in Vilnius on his peacemaking efforts, he urged them to refrain from implementing these types of measures.”

    On the contrary, it is moral and justified to boycott these enthic cleansers. That Netanyahu protests it, means that it is beginning to have an effect.

    Netanyahu must be thinking about the action of Jewish actress Scarlett Johansson, who Oxfam charity for illegal Jewish settlements.

    The Jews just don’t get it, and never will. They will cause the destruction of humanity.

    Not justified ?? What kind of soundproof bubble does this terrorist asshole live in?

    If there is one moral action that we must all take, its the boycott of israel in total. They care committing genocide in Palestine. They are the cancer in the region. BOYCOTT!!

    I don’t usually quote Stalin but he once said that no class of people ( and I will add no race of people) ever has stood by and willingly let another class rise above its present level. In other words the Israelis will continue to keep the Palestinians in slavery until that time when they are forced to ” let my people go” . The Jews of all people should know this for they have been on both sides of this persecution/slavery situation for thousands of years. Sometimes they have been the slaves and at other times they have been the slave sellers and owners. The Jews in power in Israel will never give up their dream of a Greater Israel until they are forced to do so. That’s human nature. Even when the Brits abolished slavery in England in 1833, after a very slow, painful battle, and after many other countries had long done so, the US did not do so until 1860, and only during a civil war in which both sides used slaves in battle. Don’t expect the Israelis to behave any better , even though we live in some ways in much more civil times than the 1800’s . The truth is that we are all beasts below the skin.

    Mr Wiseman, I peacefully ask you, when were the jews ever slaves, excluding your self imprisoning ghettos and religion. I hope you are not talking about Egypt. A little independent research outside the Torah will show you this. I know Egyptians that roll there eyes and tell me, ” They want you to believe that they were slaves and that they built the pyramids.” Exodus was only a script turned into a movie, and reproduced at a time when real history was being rewritten for the whole world. Seems you disagree with slavery. That is a good thing. But what are your thoughts about the Jewish role, if not monopoly of this obvious evil? This can be documented. Jews being slaves, I have not found this outside of the Old Testament or Hollywood. Was not Egypt just an example of many times jews exploited their host and ended in being expelled? It’s good you do not quote Stalin, since Mr Djugasvili was a son of a jew and a monster funded by Jewish central banks. But anyway Mr Wiseman, I am rambling too long now. My point and my question is, when, outside of the ghettos, kibbutz, and dogma, when have the jews ever been “slaves”?

    I warned them, the “freinds of israel” about their lies and forgeys of history.

    And, do notise, despite the horrific numbers of Ziotrud shittholes aka internett sites, is stunning.
    They are loosing this game, and their insane policy is becomed more and more obvious, of course exept for the ziotruds.

    The history of europa and the midle east is f… up so mutch its virually useless to describe anything, but the Hebrew isnt a people, its a religious practising, nothing more, no people or tribe that is a lie.
    The Hebrew was never more than ranging from 5 to maybe in the highdays 10% of the total polulation in Palestina, never more and the numbers are there even to day.
    The rest was christians and muslims.
    Strange that the Christian population of Palsetina is never mentioned by the western powers of their area of consern, this alone whos the staggering hypocracy of the covard and utterly corupted western world is becomed, rotten to the core.

    The Khazars, is a mongolian tribe, the Kurds, are also Khazars.
    But not all Turks are Kurds, the anicent once where Finnourgic, as the Bask/catalonians, the closes relatives we have.How is it possible to neglect this, when I can show YOU rock drawings of seafaring vessels dating back over 6000 years. The hole OUT of Africa is utter bollocs.
    There have been people in the nordic lands since time immemoriale and I can prove it all but stil the Ziotruds write all the history, the Norcis history is equally a f… lie as the Israeli history is, all lies.

    Its the Khazarian Kurds that slaughtered 1.5 mill orthodox christians in the Armenian conflict, not muslims as the zioturd clame.
    The same Khazarians, instigated the Chatolic church, as a oposition to the Bysantian Christan empire, the Vaticane is a fully flege Zioturd shitthole and is nothing more than THE most evil system ever invented and I want the Vatican to crawl on their f…. knees, and they havent lifted a f…. finger to help their brothers and sisters in faith in Palestinia, this alone during the last 7 decades tells me everything OI nee to know about the crimefactory the Vaticane is.
    Its a canser to the world.
    And so on.

    The Kurds are the Muslim brach of their world dominance policy, and this policy is what the freemasons and Bildnbergers are doing, the present norwegian prime min, is from the same lounge as our Ziotrud puppet Breivik, whom slaughtered inocent children for the sake of Israel.
    Since our children where “muslim lovers”.
    This alone Israel, will never be forgotten, we all known its YOU.
    Israel is the ONLY nation that have done a terroract in Norway, twice, and first time in the 70, and it was even a f…up to, 6 mossad operatores taken and released after, because the Norce is Khazars to.
    I wroute about this a decade ago, and was hailed as a neonazi/jewhater/f….knowswhatelse, and now it turns out that I was right all along.

    peace

    PS: the link goes thrue the volga basin, to both directions into Iran and to the northwesern parts of europa, and I am a Varangain by Birth. Its the bysantian rom I talk about.
    Not the ziotrud vaticane.
    My home is the orthodox church, and all I have done is in this light.
    All my visions, is based on this.
    So, hehe, I start to be jumpy my self.

    Failure to boycott is failure to stop genocide. It is better to be anti-Semitic than anti-humanity.

    The issue of slavery, like the issue of race, has been used to keep the people of the South fighting one another while allowing the victors to enjoy the fruits of their victory. But never let us forget that the real issue of the war as the South saw it was liberty and freedom.

    We have spoken about how the black Republicans of Mississippi in 1890 spoke and voted for the erection of the Confederate memorial in Jackson. On June 3, 1891, the memorial was dedicated in Jackson, Mississippi, and the ceremony was attended by all officials of the state and city, as well as more then twenty-five thousand people. In his invocation, the Reverend Father H. A Pitcherit boldly stated why the South fought the War for Southern Independence, when he prayed:

    O, Lord Jesus, who whilst upon this earth, didst ever show Thyself the friend and defender of the oppressed, we ardently beseech Thee to look down in love and honor to our lamented brothers-in-arms, who have fallen in the holy cause of right and justice.

    Thou, O Lord, who wert falsely charged with being a traitor to Thy country, and didst unjustly suffer a cruel death, Thou at least will sympathize with us in our Lost Cause, and we pray Thee to vindicate and to guard the memory of our comrades, who likewise wrongfully accused and condemned, willingly, aye, cheerfully laid down their lives on the consecrated altar of patriotism and liberty. (Times Democrat, Memphis, TN, June 4, 1891).

    BOOK: THE SOUTH WAS RIGHT! BY James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy. pgs.117/118.

    The history of this heroic struggle will always be written by the enemy. The conqueror’s policy is to divide the conquered into factions and stir up animosity among them. It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. it is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, to deprive us of our right and liberties.
    Black Southerners fought alongside white, Hispanic, Indian, and thousands of foreign-born Southerners.
    Frederick Douglass, Douglass’ Monthly, IV (Sept. 1861,) pp 516- “there are at the present moment many colored men in the Confederate Army- as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulder, and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down the loyal troops, and do all that soldiers may do to destroy the Federal government…”Negroes in the Confederate Army,” Journal of Negro history History, Charles Wesle, Vol. 4, #3, (1919,) 244-245

    “Seventy free blacks enlisted in the Confederate Army in Lynchburg, Virginia. Sixteen companies of free men of color marched through Augusta, Georgia on their way to fight in Virginia.” The part of Adams’ Brigade that the 42nd Indiana was facing were the Louisiana Tigers.”

    Since the Civil War the United States flag has flown over a country that has continued attempted genocide against its native peoples with the able help of Black “Buffalo Soldiers,” condoned the slavery of Orientals, in California well into the 1880’s fought wars to maintain dominance over countries whose people were not white, and imprisoned its own citizens because of the color of their skin as they did with the Japanese-Americans in California from 1941-1945.
