As Jews, Palestinians, Israeli citizens who are horrified by the inhuman, immoral, and unlawful actions of the Israeli government towards the Palestinians, we urge you to cancel the twinning agreement between Barcelona and Tel Aviv.
Keeping up the business as usual charade will only encourage Israel to proceed with its illegal, atrocious, and unjust practices that have been going on for the past 42 years without much interference from the international community.
Let me remind you that over 200 Jews and tens of Palestinian Arabs fought together against the fascists in 1936-39 in your country, and about half of them sacrificed their lives for the ideal of making the world a better place.
Israel had unleashed an extreme level of brutality in the recent Gaza massacres. The silence of the international community to the Israeli atrocities during the 22-day "operation" only encouraged the Israeli regime to intensify the butchery.
Mind you that the Spanish court system has gained our respect for undertaking that responsibility to prosecute Israeli criminals that had masterminded those atrocities.
Please cancel the Twinning farce now! It is not the right time!
