Call to suspend Israel from United Nations


Call to suspend Israel from United Nations

The Palestine Human Rights Campaign applauds the strong statements made by the Prime Minister, Helen Clark, on behalf of the New Zealand Government concerning the convicted Israeli spies.

The Prime Minister strongly condemned this abuse of New Zealand sovereignty, commenting that political repercussions would result from this Israeli breach of international law.

Israel has been breaking international laws for decades and has undermined the sovereignty of numerous nations, refusing to respect the Geneva Conventions and UN Resolutions. This constant flouting of the norms of civilised behaviour by Israel should be of grave concern to the world community. The behaviour of the two convicted agents is but a small example of the arrogance that prompts Israel to see itself as being above the law.

It is time the international community began to demand that Israel either comply with its international obligations or face sanctions.

We call upon the New Zealand Government to lead an international movement to suspend Israel's membership of the United Nations Organisation until it fully complies with UN Resolutions, all the Geneva Conventions and international law.
