    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- The Israeli government criticized UN special rapporteur on human rights in occupied Palestinian territories, Richard Falk, after he had urged a boycott of companies working in or dealing with Jewish settlements in occupied Palestinian land.

    Falk submitted his report, which documented the Israeli ongoing violations against Palestinians in the occupied territories, during the UN General Assembly meeting on Friday in New York.

    Falk had pointed out in his report that the Israeli settlement policy violates international humanitarian laws, and called on the UNGA to issue a resolution that requires boycotting the Israeli and international companies tied to Jewish settlements.

    Falk lists 13 companies in his report to the UNGA, but notes that this is a small portion of the businesses operating or dealing in the Jewish settlements.

    They criticize anyone who documents their violations against Palestinians.

    Unfortunately the people cannot change anything.

    Israel has its way with these illegal violations.

    Maybe we should call a boycott of all the goods which are made in Muslim countries where Hindus, Buddhists and Christians are harassed and even murdered. Perhaps Baghdad Bob would go for that. Check the labels before you buy anything. Meanwhile, I wonder if Bob here will have a problem with Israel doing the following, or will he want a boycott on that?

    Israeli tablets to purify water for Syrians

    by Viva Sarah Press, Israel21c

    On their way to Syria: AquaTabs water purification tablets.
    Citing humanitarian reasons, the Israeli Finance Ministry recently gave the green light for a subsidiary of Israel Chemicals – which is owned by the Israeli company but is based in Ireland – to sell water purification tablets for distribution in war-torn Syria, even though it is considered an enemy state.

    With clean water availability at an all-time low in Syria, the United Nations international aid agency UNICEF has been working to rehabilitate the country’s water sources.

    The organization turned to Medentech, Israel Chemicals’ Ireland-based subsidiary, with a request to buy its AquaTabs water purification tablets. But the law prohibiting Israeli companies from selling a product to a hostile state could have sunk the plan.

    Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz was called to authorize the deal and did so, noting that the world’s best-selling water purification tablets would not be sold directly to Syria but rather to the UN agency.

    Humanitarianism trumps politics

    The Israeli law drafted in 1939 forbids Israeli companies from knowingly selling products that will benefit an enemy state. According to a report in Calcalist, the government must authorize all business agreements between Israel and enemy nations.

    The Israeli business daily reported that while this is not the first time the government has okayed such a transaction, it is unusual.

    But as Israel is known for its humanitarian efforts around the globe, obtaining special authorization and waiving the law for the water purification deal was more a formality than an anomaly.

    The AquaTabs are effervescent tablets that kill micro-organisms in water to prevent cholera, typhoid, dysentery and other water-borne diseases. The chlorine pills are considered a better alternative to boiling water to remove contaminants.

    “UNICEF is urgently scaling up its emergency response to reach hundreds of thousands of children with child protection, water, sanitation and hygiene, health and nutrition, and education initiatives,” according to a UNICEF statement.

    According to the UN about 1.2 million Syrians have been internally displaced within the country, and hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have fled to neighboring countries. The UN also estimates that there are another one million Syrians still living in their homes in need of humanitarian aid.

    Israel 21c?

    Another Israeli Zionist apologist site?

    More diversions by HF. He really could just keep his mouth shut, or at the least try to make his points and create his own threads.

    But he continues to spam.

    And it doesn't change the fact that Israel trashes investigations if their crimes all the time.

    Yet the water in Gaza is undrinkable because Israel will not allow the repair of water treatment plants.

    Silly Baghdad Bob, he sees something with Israel in it, and he is having a conniption fit. That site happens to tell the achievements going on in Israel for such things as medical and technological advances. I certainly hope that if you are ever in need of something medical which was invented in israel, you turn it down because you don't want to be a Muslim hypocrite, not that you aren't already. And, dopey, spamming is when you post the same article over and over and over.

    An example of the articles on the Israel 21 site. Do you want more, Mr. Silly Know-it-all?
    Safer chemo, thanks to Israeli math | ISRAEL21c

    And let us not forget, Baghdad Bob, that it is like a revolving door in Palestinian prisons, especially if they kill Jews.
