The Palestinian civil society call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions demands action to persuade the investors in companies complicit in Israeli militarism to divest their shares. Barclays PLC holds £3m worth of shares in Elbit Systems. Campaigners have been calling for Barclays to drop their shares in the arms trade for years.

The battlefields of Israel's miliForced out of apartheid South Africa; can we force them out of Elbit Systems?tarism and occupation have proved effective testing grounds for new types of weaponry. Israel's market leaders in drone technology are Elbit, a private Israeli company based in Haifa.  The US traded shares of Elbit Systems rose 6.1% since Israel began the massacres in Gaza (8th – 27th July).

Barclays was notorious for supporting Apartheid in South Africa, until it was forced to withdraw by customer boycotts and moral outrage.  Join Scottish PSC help us build a campaign to force Barclays to stop investing in the Israeli war machine and benefitting from the live testing of Israeli weapons on the bodies of Palestinian men, women and children.

Don't bankroll Israeli War Crimes! Barclays: Stop arming Israel!

Israeli crimes have been horrendous even before the official recognition of the State of Israel in 1948. The most infamous, but by no means the largest, massacre carried out by Zionists was at Deir Yassin in 1947. In spite of recent Israeli attempts to whitewash this abominable event, the newspaper articles of the time are still able to be read. Most Israeli massacres were carried out in 1947/48 to encourage the Palestinian population to move out of Palestine. In this way the Zionists ethnically cleansed 750,000 people from western Palestine and the Palestinian people call this event "the Nakba" Of course the government of Israel does not allow commemoration and celebrates the theft of the land as Independence Day.

Israel is merely a racist entity occupying stolen Palestinian land. As racist South Africa had to become a democracy, why can't racist Israel become democratic Palestine?

Israel and Settler Society by Lorenzo Veracini

The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not unique -- whatever the news media may suggest. Lorenzo Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism. Like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking in detail at the evolution of other colonial regimes -- apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia -- Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism, offering a clear framework within which to understand the middle east crisis.
