 Israel says no Palestine
Sign the petition: sanctions on Israel NOW!

Israel’s General Election has been won by Benjamin Netanyahu’s extreme right-wing Likud party, sending a clear message to the world that the Israeli people are happy with the status quo of keeping the Palestinians under continuous occupation and siege.
Just one day before the election, Netanyahu stood in an East Jerusalem settlement and pledged in a televised interview that he would never agree to a Palestinian state if he was re-elected, and made an election commitment not to halt settlement construction.

He had also boasted that he built the settlement of Har Homa as a way of stopping Bethlehem from moving toward Jerusalem.” On election day, he further whipped up racism with his statement of Arab voters coming out in droves
The next day, he and his party were re-elected to power with a decisive majority, giving a mandate to his election commitments – commitments which fly in the face of any ‘peace process’, freedom and justice for Palestinians, and international law.
Press reports are that Obama’s administration was driven to new levels of fury by Netanyahu’s comments, and that Obama is ‘reassessing’ his options. Where are similar statements from our government? Tell the British government – do you really believe that continuing a policy of carrots, not sticks, towards Netanyahu is helping? Take Action – SANCTIONS NOW!

Waitrose takes a battering over ‘Taste of Israel’ promotion
Support our campaigns today
Waitrose 'Taste of Israel' magazine cover
PSC’s campaign to expose Waitrose for distributing a ‘Taste of Israel’ promotion brochure hit the mainstream media this week. These are just some of the articles, which all include quotes from PSC:
The story was also covered by Russia Today, Campaign, Media Week and websites including aol.com and bt.com
 This week, Sarah Colborne, Director of PSC, wrote to Waitrose, questioning how its promotion of Israel squares with its proclaimed ethical values and requesting a meeting with its Managing Director. Read the letter here
Take action:
‘Taste of Israel’ was produced by the Israeli Government Tourist Office. It contains inaccuracies including listing Palestinian and Arab foods as Israeli (page 7), and referring to Jerusalem and the Golan Heights as being in Israel (p26 and 27). This is false advertising.
Please send a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about the brochure (not about Waitrose).
You’ll need to include this link in your online submission to the ASA and specify the page numbers which relate to your complaint.
