We are announcing the Asean million signature campain against israel annexation plan of parts of West Bank.
This is part of the call for global condemnation of Israel’s planned annexation of Palestinian territories said to be 30% of the West Bank.
The international pressure against israel must be intensified to not only condemn but to stop the annexation move.
We firmly believe that if the global community kept silent and no concrete action is taken to stop the atrocities committed by Israel in Palestine, the plan will be a prelude for israel to annex the remaining parts of Palestine.
This campaign extends to individuals and groups as signatories.
We are trying to gather a million signatures from the Asean community of 600 million population.
We urge the Asean community to make a strong mark on the global movement to support the Palestinian cause by advocating the Asean community to boycot israel.
Being silent is not an option. The day light theft of Palestinian lands since 1948 cannot be allowed to persist.
We are establishing the online digital Asean intifadha movement to sustain the campaign in the long term cause to liberate Palestine.
We regret the incapacitated UN to enforce dozens of resolutions on the violations of international laws committed by israel.
Palestinians have experienced occupation and israel apartheid, systemic racism and narcism for too long.
With full backing from the US, israel is treated above the international law making it untouchable.
This is an international caste system practiced by the US and israel to execute whatever they want.
Isolation and sanction of israel is a need that must be applied on Israel.
Israel has for decades undermined international laws with impunity through invasions, illegal settlements and annexations.
This planned annexation of 30% of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley if not checked will culminate years of gradual theft and occupation through the appropriation of land, the forcible displacement of the Palestinian population and the settling of Israelis in the occupied territories.
The UN Human Rights Council has said that the planned annexation by Israel, would be “a serious violation of the Charter of the United Nations and the Geneva Conventions”.
Netanyahu’s government long list of human rights violations against Palestinian people, including settler violence, confiscation of natural resources and discrimination must be stopped by a strong international action of sanction and boycott.
The annexation , if allowed to be executed, will embolden israel to continue its violations.
We are aware of the plan to create a Palestinian Bantustan, islands of disconnected land surrounded by Israel and with no territorial connection to the outside world.
US President Donald Trump’s backing of Israel’s plans must be condemned, and world leaders must stand in strong solidarity with Palestine to oppose the plan effectively.
