Tell Israel to free Activist EZRA NAWI
I’ve had a few hours to mull over the fact all day long the news has been about that bullshit Litvinenko inquiry. First of all – what a waste of public money. He was a traitor goddamn it! A Russian working for MI5 – HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED! WE DO THE SAME THING TO TRAITORS! The thing is we have no right to talk. We lock up whistle-blowers, while war-criminals & pedophiles escape justice.
However, seeing that sniveling little rat Andy Burnham going on about Russia being a rogue state & that killing Litvinenko was a very serious crime – if ever there was a disgusting little cretin! You bastard – what about Netanyahu killing 1000’s upon 1000’s of unarmed Palestinians; what about Mossad? They specialise in targeted assassinations & this little shit not only doesn’t say a word – HE SUPPORTS ISRAEL!
Hard as one tries to remain positive, living in such a crazy world is depressing to say the very least. What’s so saddening is knowing we can do so much better. I really do mean it when I say we have the very worst people in control. Most of our politicians deserve to be put up against the wall & shot!
This is from the Jewish Voice for Peace. Of course being an activist & being an Israeli activist is an altogether different story. Cameron though is doing his level best to usher in Israeli standards over here – those who are against bombing countries that have never lifted a finger against us are ‘terrorist sympathisers!’ The mere notion Israel is a democratic nation is laughable. Jewish activists deserve all the support we can give them for they really do get the rough end of the stick! Thanks to Patrick Dohman for sending me this. Click any of the links below & it should take you to the petition. Then one click sends a letter to the Israeli embassies in London, Washington & Toronto.
A Kafka-esque situation is unfolding in Israel.
Jewish-Israeli activist Ezra Nawi has now spent more than a week detained by the Israeli authorities – for no apparent crime. A gag order was put on his case, so our allies in Israel couldn’t raise the alarm about his arrest. He was even denied access to a lawyer for four days.
That appalling gag order means our Israeli allies can’t speak out so they’ve turned to us for help. We need to raise our voices, get out the word, and get Ezra out of jail. His detention was recently extended for the second time until Wednesday – and he may face serious charges after that. So we need your help.
Please email the Israeli Embassy and tell them the world is watching: stop persecuting political activists, free Ezra Nawi and close his case!
Democratic rights for Jewish Israelis who speak up against Israel’s human rights abuses are deteriorating, and our allies face a backlash everyday. It still does not come close to the persecution that Palestinian activists face – inside Israel and in the West Bank, Gaza or East Jerusalem. But it is a clear reminder that Israel’s standards of democracy grow weaker by the day.
The Israeli government needs to know that we won’t stand idly by. Send a letter of concern to the Israeli Embassy now!
An Israeli friend (who must remain anonymous because of the gag order) wrote this:
Having denied Palestinians under Occupation their rights to any form of political protest, the Israeli government is now in the process of doing the same to Israeli citizens who support the Palestinian cause. Last week the Israeli police arrested Ezra Nawi, our friend and prominent dissident, who has been indispensable  in the struggle for the survival of Palestinian communities in the South Hebron Hills.
This arrest is not an isolated incident but the latest in an orchestrated campaign against dissenting voices supporting Palestinian rights. In recent months the Israeli government has taken new steps to demonize, deny funding access, and now literally threaten with imprisonment, those of us who oppose its criminal policies [2,3,4,5]. And while these violations of Nawi’s rights are no more severe than the routine violation of the rights of Palestinians in countless ways, they do however signal a new stage in Israel’s practice of violently crushing dissent and resistance.
Let the Israeli government know that we will not stand idly by as dissent is suppressed – on either side of the Green Line. Let the Israeli government know that we’re watching. Let the Israeli government know that we demand an end to the harassment and arrest of activists.
Send a message to the Israeli Embassy: Release Ezra Nawi.
P.S. We just heard that a second Israeli activist has been detained, and there’s another gag order in place to try and stop us from raising the alarm. We’ll send more details when we have them, but for now — send a strong message to the Israeli Government, and demand that they free Ezra.
