Nobel peace laureates call for Israel military boycott over Gaza assault

Letter with 52 signatories including artists and activists also denounces US and EU ‘complicity’ through weapons sales

A group of Nobel peace prize-winners, prominent artists and activists have issued a call for an international military boycott of Israel following its assault on the Gaza Strip this month.

The letter also denounces the US, EU and several developing countries for what it describes as their “complicity” through weapons sales and other military support in the attack that killed 160 Palestinians, many of them civilians, including about 35 children.

The 52 signatories include the Nobel peace laureates Mairead Maguire and Adolfo Pérez Esquivel; the film directors Mike Leigh and Ken Loach; the author Alice Walker; the US academic Noam Chomsky; Roger Waters of Pink Floyd; and Stéphane Hessel, a former French diplomat and Holocaust survivor who was co-author of the universal declaration of human rights.

“Horrified at the latest round of Israeli aggression against the 1.5 million Palestinians in the besieged and occupied Gaza Strip and conscious of the impunity that has enabled this new chapter in Israel’s decades-old violations of international law and Palestinian rights, we believe there is an urgent need for international action towards a mandatory, comprehensive military embargo against Israel,” the letter says.

“Such a measure has been subject to several UN resolutions and is similar to the arms embargo imposed against apartheid South Africa in the past.”

    I promise to never defend, nor help in any way, shape or form Aki Kaurismäki or any of the other people who signed that list. If they are in need of resuscitation or attacked by someone, I will let them die and berate them for bleeding and thus making a mess. If they are drowning, I will applaud and cheer.

    You must be kidding me. They are talking about occupied Gaza. It literally says so. Where have these people been the last couple of years?

  3. Dallas says:

    This bizarre situation shows us that there is no correlation between the position of a tenured university professor and a requirement for a basic level of intelligence.

    Nor is there any meaning behind the Nobel “Peace” Prize.

    I’ m not too concearned. Whatever group both Chomsky and Leigh would join wouldn’t be listened to by anyone other than a few mastabatory journalists. Their chosen lot in life is to whine to the other dissafected whiners. If they really thought anyone would take this lefty sourpuss society seriously they would have been too neurotic to join.

    Booyakasha!
