We, Palestinians, Jews, citizens of Israel, join the Palestinian call for a BDS campaign against Israel, inspired by the struggle of South Africans against apartheid. We also call on others to do the same.
We are devoted to the promotion of just peace and true democracy in this region. We are particularly opposed to Western governments' decision to boycott the Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, most especially in besieged Gaza. This is particularly outrageous given the same Western governments' prolonged support of Israel's apartheid and other daily violations of international law.

PDF version available here July 11, 2011 "We’re going to arrest you, but it’s difficult with you because all you do is talk.” - Israeli soldier to Palestinian organizer Mohammad Othman, 2009 [1]   We, Israeli citizens, members of Boycott![2], hereby reiterate our support and promotion of the Palestinian Call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, until it complies with international law and universal principles of human rights[3]. We declare this in spite of the new legislation by the Israeli Knesset, which aims to penalize our and our partners' activities, curbing freedom of speech and political organizing and most importantly – banning Israeli citizens from acting according to their conscience when it conflicts with the deplorable policies of the state.

  1 October 2012 To whom it may concern, We are a group of Israeli citizens, active against our government’s policies of racism, apartheid and occupation. Many of us are veteran activists, and we have witnessed or researched the extent of the devastation left by the Israeli army in the occupied Palestinian territories and in Lebanon. Thousands of civilians, including children, have been killed by Israel in the past decade alone, using hi-tec weapons. Thousands of civilian homes were demolished. Much of this has been carried out by the Israeli air-force.
