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.

Sep. 18, 2010 Dear Joanna Newsom, We are members of Boycott! – a group of Israeli citizens, Jews and Palestinians, who support the Palestinian call to boycott Israel as means of bringing to an end the murderous, systematic oppression of an entire population, which occurs daily in our name.

September 9, 2010 Dear Pete, As long-time admirers of your music and your commitment to social justice, and as justice-seeking activists ourselves, we were surprised and troubled to learn that you plan to participate in the event “With Earth and Each Other: A Virtual Rally for a Better Middle East” this November. As part of the 2005 Palestinian civil society call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), and inspired by the cultural boycott of apartheid South Africa, Palestinian people have asked international artists to join the BDS movement by refusing to perform in Israel or participate in events that serve to equate the occupier and the occupied and thus promote the continuation of injustice. Participation in “With Earth and Each Other” undermines the call for BDS until Israel meets the basic requirements of human rights and international law by ending its occupation, ensuring equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel, and respecting the rights of Palestinian refugees.

30 August 2010 Dear Pete Seeger,   We are members of an Israeli group called “Boycott! supporting the Palestinian call for boycott divestment and sanctions (BDS) from within”. We are appealing to you because of commitment you have demonstrated during many years to social justice. We have recently heard that you plan to participate this November in the event “With Earth and Each Other: A Virtual Rally for a Better Middle East”, in benefit of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. You might not have heard initially about the BDS call and movement, a broad coalition of Palestinian organizations that have amongst other things, called on artists not to entertain apartheid Israel. Their call has been joined by Desmond Tutu and Bill Fletcher, Jr. amongst many others. These calls are the direct result of the systematic and ongoing oppression of Palestinians by Israel and Israel's decade’s long refusal to stop violating Palestinians human rights.

LCD Soundsystem are a great band. Their song All My Friends was selected as 2007's song of the year on my favorite music show, Hakatze (broadcast on the Israeli military radio station, by the way...)

Boycott! would like to thank Leftfield and Neil Barnes in particular for cancelling Leftfield's scheduled performance in Israel and refusing to entertain apartheid. Leftfield have demonstrated courage and humanity in this decision, and we hope others will follow and respect the Palestinian Call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel until there's freedom and justice for the Palestinian people. Boycott! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call from withinhttp://boycottisrael.info

"How many lives can they take, till we break?""How many homes set alight, till we fight?" Dear Leftfield, We, a group of Israeli citizens, are writing to you today, as your words of protest resonate with their relevance in light of the deadly raid on a flotilla attempting to break the illegal siege and packed with humanitarian aid, bound for the suffocating Gaza Strip. That same strip of land, overpopulated and besieged for the past 3 years, is the place which Israel chose to brutally attack during its December 2009 onslaught.

July 18, 2010 Dear members of Π.Α.ΜΕ. We are a group of Jews and Palestinians, citizens and residents of Israel, who are struggling to end the Israeli occupation and oppression of the Palestinians. We are writing to you in order to express our enthusiastic support of your courageous civil protest against the blockade of Gaza and against Israel's oppressive policies by symbolically blocking five El-Al airline check-in counters at Athens International Airport (14.07.10). You have thus joined a long line of civilians who, unlike their own governments, express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and their dissociation from the oppressive polices of the Israel government.

Rachel Giora July 1st, 2010  In the eyes of the world, the question is what can be done when the relevant institutions do not succeed in enforcing international law? Tanya Reinhart (May 5, 2005)1     Despite the recent atrocities inflicted by Israelis on Palestinians and internationals, despite the deteriorating status of human rights experienced by Israeli citizens both Palestinian and non-Palestinian, despite the mounting despair of any chance for a change on the part of Israeli governments, Israel can no longer NOT look in the mirror the world is pushing up to its face. Israel is on the brink of change or collapse.
