휴전? 쉴 때가 아니다
휴먼 라이츠 워치 통신 2009년 1월 18일
가자에 ‘일주일 휴전’이 -이스라엘이 최소한 450명의 어린이들을 죽인 후- 시행된 상황에서, 지난 22일 동안 이어져왔던 ‘베트 사후르 철야 농성’은 대대적인 행동으로 전환될 것이다. 내일 월요일(1월 19일) 오전 10시, 베들레헴 지역 단체 모임인 Palestinian Civil Society Organizations는 2차 결집하여, 이 메일을 보내고, 언론과 정치인들에게 편지를 쓰고, 의견을 나누며, 이스라엘에 대한 BDS (보이콧, 투자 철회, 경제 제재 Boycotts, Divestments, and Sanctions)를 전개하고 이스라엘 지도자들을 전쟁 범죄와 인간성에 위반한 범죄를 저지른 죄목으로 처벌하기 위한 전략을 개발할 것이다. .......
우리는 지금이 쉴 때가 아니라, 새로운 BDS 운동을 특별히 시작하여 압박을 강화할 때라고 믿는다. 그럼으로써 우리는 팔레스타인 원주민들에 반한 61년 간의 부정의를 단번에, 그리고 완전히 끝낼 수 있을 것이다. (이스라엘이 팔레스타인인들의 모든 권리, 특히 고향과 살던 땅으로 돌아올 난민들의 권리를 수긍하게끔 되어야 한다.) 우리는 또한 국제사회가 이스라엘의 전쟁 범죄를 돈으로 보상할 게 아니라, 이스라엘에게 책임을 지워야 한다고 믿는다.
61년 동안 계속된 이 같은 잔학함이 종료되고, 우리가 평화와 정의의 후-아파르트헤이트(post-Apartheid) 시대로 옮겨가기 위하여, 당신의 지역 사회에서 BDS (http://www.bdsmovement.net and http://www.pacbi.org 를 보시오) 운동을 위한 활동을 시작하거나 확대해 달라. 그리고 예전에 남아프리카에 대해서 했던 것처럼 이스라엘의 고립을 구축하기 위한 합법적, 언론적, 현장적 전략을 개발해달라. 참고할 자료와 방안들로서, 우리는 아래에 관련 링크 목록을 달아두었다: 사진과 비디오, 가자에 대한 사실 정보, UN과 인권 단체들의 선언, 정치적 분석, 그리고 우리가 할 25가지 행동(이 행동들은 아래 게시물에 번역돼 있습니다-역자주).

With confidential documents, corroborated by outraged former and current U.S. officials, the author reveals how President Bush, Condoleezza Rice, and Deputy National-Security Adviser Elliott Abrams [Zionist] backed an armed force under Fatah strongman Muhammad Dahlan, touching off a bloody civil war in Gaza and leaving Hamas stronger than ever."

25 Actions to do
Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD
With the Gaza "cease fire" in place for one week (after Israeli forces murdered at least 450 Children), the Beit Sahour vigil that was held daily for the past 22 days will be transformed to increased action. Tomorrow (Monday) at 10 AM local, Palestinian Civil Society Organizations in the Bethlehem area will hold a second work day for Gaza where we will be emailing, writing media and politicians, sharing ideas and developing strategies to develop the Boycotts, Divestments, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel as well as bringing Israeli leaders to justice for war crimes and crimes against humanity.Those of you who can join us it will be at AlGhad institute in Downtown Beit Sahour near the bus company offices.
We believe this is not the time to relax but to intensify the pressure that is building especially introducing new BDS actions so that we can once and for all end the 61 year injustice against the native Palestinians (Israel must be made to comply with all Palestinian Rights especially the rights of refugees to return to their homes and lands). We also believe the International community should not be paying for Israel's war crimes and must hold Israel accountable.
Please begin to or expand your work in your community for BDS (see http://www.bdsmovement.net and http://www.pacbi.org) and develop legal, media, and out reach strategies to build up the isolation of Israel like we did with South Africa so that such atrocities that have been ongoing for 61 year are ended and we move to a post-Apartheid era of Peace with Justice. For resources and tools, we are listing below links to: pictures and video, facts on Gaza, Declarations by the UN and human rights groups, political analysis, and the link to 25 actions to do.
