Jed Brandt says:

Israel is appealing to the UN to stop a humanitarian mission to a country they are bombing and starving?

How about Israel remove every single one of the illegal settlements from the West Bank, respect the Geneva Conventions and allow Palestinian refugees to return to their lands?

Zionism shares with other ethno-nationalisms a complete disdain for the idea of universal human rights. By what right do they appeal to the UN for anything?

Boycott. Divestment. Sanctions. Secular democracy is good.
