RE: Boycott Israel
SUBTOPIC: What does it mean to "politicize" a word



Politicized issue
A politicized issue or hot-button issue is a social, economic, theological, spiritual, scientific or legal issue which has become a political issue, as a result of deliberate action or otherwise, whereby people become politically active over that issue.

Politics is a "subjective" approach to an issue. To say that something is politicized is to say it is under debate.

128 scholars specializing in antisemitism, & Holocaust studies warn the UN: IHRA definition of antisemitism is "politicized," "instrumentalized to deter free speech" & used to "shield the Israeli government from accountability for its actions."
(COMMENT)

Antisemitism (hostility, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews), in many discussions, is merely a description of the long-standing political atmosphere between Israel and the forces and political entities (ie the Hostile Arab Palestinians) that wish to combat territorial integrity and sovereignty.

What is said here by the (alleged) "128 scholars specializing in antisemitism" neither adds nor subtracts from the use of the term "Antisemitism." It is self-evident that there is hostility, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews by the Arab Palestinians. IF there is an atmosphere of any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence against the Israelis, THEN it is in opposition to one of the cornerstones in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (CCPR)(Article 20).

Opposition to Israel and Zionism is opposition to occupation. colonialism, and apartheid. It is not about Jews.

Weaponize would be a better word than politicize.

Opposition to Israel and Zionism is opposition to occupation. colonialism, and apartheid. It is not about Jews.
(COMMENT)

There is no rational and valid argument against any kind of "peaceful" opposition to "occupation" anywhere or by any government. The key word here is "peaceful." No opposition has a justification for the commission of an offense that is intended to harm the Occupying Power. Equally key is the necessity for the opposition to be without; a distinction of any kind, on the basis of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

There is no colonial activity anywhere in the Middle East. You cannot use a defense against colonialism where there is no colonialism.

The anti-semitic, anti-Israeli and pro-Palestinian cannot, no matter what the political justification, use any propaganda for war; OR incite national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes discrimination, hostility or violence.

"Apartheid" is not a valid criminal allegation if it is missing the components of oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups - a component missing in the Arab-Israeli dispute.

Weaponize would be a better word than politicize.
(COMMENT)

There are very few things that cannot be weaponized in one form or another. This includes the Antisemitism & Demonization programs by the anti-semitic, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian in the disputed territories.

REMEMBER: The EU has declared a number of anti-semitic, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian organizations as conducting terrorist acts committed with reference to relevant provisions of Common Position 2001/931/CFSP. The terrorist listing is found in COUNCIL DECISION 2014/72/CFSP. This is not the politicization of the terminology, merely facts in evidence.

RE: Boycott Israel
SUBTOPIC: Settler Colonial State?
※→ P F Tinmore, et al,


The Palestinians agreed to Israel's control of Area "C"

(Para 3, A/PV.2268. 14 October 1974), agree to ANNEX III Protocol Concerning Civil Affairs • ARTICLE IV Special Provisions concerning Area "C" • which assigned Israel full civil and security control over Area “C".​
Article V. Declaration of Principles on Interim Self- Government Arrangements September 13, 1993​

WCRC: Foucs: Palestine - 6. Is Israel A Settler Colonial State?​

(COMMENT)

But even without the Palestinian agreement,

EXCERPT: Para 3, Article 12, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (CCPR)
"shall not be subject to any restrictions except those which are provided by law, are necessary to protect national security, public order (ordre public), public health or morals or the rights and freedoms of others, and are consistent with the other rights recognized in the present Covenant."

The CCPR was adopted by the General Assembly Resolution 2200A (XXI), the Arab-Palestinians have become an ever-increasing source of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility and violence shall be prohibited by law (Article 20, CCPR).

In actuality, the associate advocates for the argument → The EU has declared a number of anti-semitic, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian organizations as conducting terrorist acts committed with reference to relevant provisions of Common Position 2001/931/CFSP. The terrorist listing is found in COUNCIL DECISION 2014/72/CFSP. This is not the politicization of the terminology, merely facts in evidence. The anti-semitic, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian organizations essentially argue that either:


◈ Sovereign Powers do not have the right to control their borders...​
............................................OR​
◈ That definition of a crime (in this case "apartheid") shall be strictly construed and shall not be extended by analogy. In case of ambiguity, the definition shall be interpreted in favor of the person being investigated, prosecuted, or convicted.​

A list of just a few groups and entities referred to as terrorists by the European Union:

#3. ‘Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade’​
#4. ‘Al-Aqsa e.V.’.​
#9. Hamas’, including ‘Hamas-Izz al-Din al-Qassem’.​
#19. ‘Palestinian Islamic Jihad’ – ‘PIJ’.​
#20. ‘Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’ – ‘PFLP’.​
#21. ‘Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command’​

What borders?
(COMMENT)

Well, as far as the West Bank and Gaza Strip are concerned:
United Nations, Security Council Documents 1975 S/11818 of 2 September 1975, as well as S/11818/Add.l/ Corr.l, S/11818/Add.l, S/11818/Add.2, S/11818/Add.3, S/11818/Add.4, S/11818/Add.5/Corr.l and S/11818/ Add.5, and United Nations, Security Council Documents 1974 S/11198 of 18 January 1974 and S/11198/Add.l​

But you always ignore things like the treaties. However, there are other things involved:

It is important to remember that you seem to generally approach the discussion from an unreasonable perspective.

The Nakba was a military conquest of Palestine. It was a war of aggression.
