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.

Dear Dream Theatre, I am an Israeli citizen supporting the Palestinian call for boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Israel. I'm writing to you because I'm compelled to act in solidarity with my Palestinian friends, who are living under Israeli occupation and apartheid.

Dear Vanessa Mae, We are a group of Israeli citizens who support the human rights-based Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the BDS movement  ([1] http://www.pacbi.org , http://www.bdsmovement.net/) As the international media tends to show only a partial picture on the situation in Israel/Palestine, we are concerned that you may not be entirely aware of how problematic performing in Apartheid Israel is.

*/ Marc Almond has cancelled performing in Israel. Dear Marc Almond, We are a group of Israeli citizens supporting the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS): Together with our Palestinian partners, we are calling on international artists to respect the call, and refrain from performing in Israel until the Palestinians’ most basic human rights are respected: 1. Ending [Israel’s] occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the apartheid wall built on Palestinian land; 2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; 3. Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

We are Israeli citizens who witness first-hand the brutality of our government's policies towards the Palestinian people. We stand firm in our support of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) initiatives against Israel until it meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination, and fully complies with the precepts of international law.

Dear Bob Dylan, “Please heed the call Don't stand in the doorway Don't block up the hall For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled There's a battle outside ragin'. It'll soon shake your windows And rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin'.” We are members of an Israeli group called BOYCOTT! Supporting the Palestinian BDS call from within (BfW). We support the Palestinian call for the boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Israel (1) until Palestinians’ most basic human rights are respected:

Czech version follows English version We are a group of Israeli citizens who are deeply concerned about our government's policies of racism, apartheid and occupation, and the European Union's complicity in these policies. It has been brought to our attention that the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to visit your country this month, in order to "deepen crucial strategic cooperation", as reported by your local media. Cooperation of this type means increased complicity of the Czech Republic in Israeli crimes. We are therefore writing to you to ask that you resume your responsibility to uphold basic principles of international law and human rights in Israel/Palestine.
