KENYATAAN AKHBAR OLEH BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTION (BDS)  MALAYSIA

27 Januari 2017

 

BDS Malaysia ingin menyuarakan kekecewaan kami  terhadap Giant Hypermarket Malaysia kerana  menjual pakaian (seluar) keluaran syarikat dari Israel di rangkaian pasar raya mereka di bawah jenama Shay Shaul.

BDS Malaysia menyeru Giant Hypermarket untuk  menarik balik   barangan ini dan juga jika ada produk-produk lain buatan israeL  dengan serta-merta. Jika tidak, kami akan mengambil langkah-langkah berikut:

 

1. Meminta kerajaan Malaysia  mengambil tindakan terhadap Giant

2. Menjalankan kempen awam di seluruh negara yang bertujuan untuk memboikot Giant.

 

BDS Malaysia juga menggesa rakyat Malaysia untuk membuat bantahan berkenaan perkara ini dengan mengisi borang maklum balas pelanggan  secara online di sini: 

( http://www.giant.com.my/contact-us/contact.aspx )

 

Boikot, Pelupusan dan Sekatan Terhadap Israel (BDS) adalah gerakan global yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan tekanan ekonomi dan politik terhadap Israel sehingga ia mematuhi undang-undang antarabangsa dan memberhentikan aktiviti pendudukan dan penindasan rakyat Palestin.

 

BDS Malaysia adalah sebahagian daripada gerakan global ini yang kini terdiri daripada NGO, berbagai persatuan agama, kesatuan sekerja, persatuan akademik dan pelajar serta penerima anugerah Nobel untuk keamanan.

 

Gerakan BDS antarabangsa telah berjaya  berkempen menentang syarikat perniagaan yang bersubahat dalam kekejaman yang dilakukan oleh Israel terhadap rakyat Palestin. BDS Malaysia tidak akan teragak-agak untuk turut serta dengan kempen terhadap Giant jika Giant masih berdegil untuk menjual produk syarikat Israel.

Kami harap Giant akan membuat keputusan yang sewajarnya tentang perkara ini secepat  mungkin.

Terima kasih.

PRESS RELEASE BY BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS (BDS) MALAYSIA

 27 January 2017

 

BDS Malaysia would like to express our disappointment at Giant Hypermarket Malaysia for carrying apparels produced by an Israeli company at their stores under the brand name Shay Shaul. 

BDS Malaysia calls on Giant Hypermarket to immediately withdraw the above mentioned and any other Israeli product, failing which we will take the following measures: 

 

 

1. Urge the Malaysian government to take action against Giant Hypermarket 

2. Conduct a nationwide public campaign aimed at boycotting Giant. 

 

BDS Malaysia also urges the Malaysian public to lodge their protest by filling up Giant’s online customer feedback form ( http://www.giant.com.my/contact-us/contact.aspx )

 

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Against Israel (BDS) is a global movement aimed at increasing economic and political pressure on Israel till it complies with international law and stops the occupation and oppression of Palestinians. 

BDS Malaysia is part of this global movement that now comprises NGOs, churches, labour unions, academic and student associations and Nobel peace laureates. 

The international BDS movement has successfully campaigned against businesses complicit in Israel’s atrocities against the Palestinians and BDS Malaysia will not hesitate to follow suit with a campaign against Giant. 

 

We trust you in making the right decision.

GIANT Hypermarket appreciation in prompt response withdrawing Israeli based products.

BDS Malaysia would like to record our appreciation to Giant Hypermarket for their prompt response in withdrawing Israeli products from their shelves.

We welcome this decision as a step in the right direction and salute Giant Hypermarket for their moral commitment against Israel’s occupation and oppression of Palestinians.

BDS Malaysia would also like to thank all who had lodged their protests with Giant Hypermarket.

BDS is a non violent global movement that aims to apply economic and political pressure on Israel into restoring Palestinian rights, in compliance with international law.

It continues to gain strength and momentum and the decision by Giant Hypermarket is yet another victory in its annals.

BDS Malaysia stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine and will continue our efforts in calling for an end to Israel’s occupation and oppression of Palestinians.

List of Malaysian organizations that have given their pledges to boycott HP

Boycott HP is an international call, initiated by the global BDS movement. HP plays a key role in Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. It provides technology, equipment and services to the Israeli military, including for the checkpoints and ID card system that define Israel’s apartheid policies. Its technology also helps the Israeli navy enforce the siege on Gaza which is now in its eleventh year.  

The international Boycott HP campaign has already seen several US churches divest from the company and has attracted support from student governments across the US. The involvement of Malaysian organizations demonstrates yet again the growing BDS movement that is redefining the Palestinian struggle to self-determination, which is today, a mainstream discourse, exposing Israel’s brutal treatment of an entire people.

BDS Malaysia will continue to call for the boycott of HP products for as long as its technology remains sullied with the occupation of Palestine. We look forward to and urge more organisations to look deep within their conscience and be on the right side of history.

Jews against Racist Zionism

Jews Against Racist Zionism

For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “never again to anyone”, “bear witness” and “zero tolerance for lying”.

 

However these sacred injunctions are grossly violated by the anti-Arab anti-Semitic , Islamophobic and  indeed anti-Jewish anti-Semitic   racist Zionists running Apartheid Israel and their Western backers variously involved in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide, Somali Genocide,  and Afghan Genocide (post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths 0.3 million (1967-2014), 4.6 million (1990-2014), 2.2 million (1992-2014) and 5.6 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 2.0 million, 1.3 million and 3.0 million, respectively; refugees totalling 7 million, 5-6 million, 2 million  and 3-4 million, respectively, plus a further 2 million NW Pakistan Pashtun refugees) (see “Muslim Holocaust  Muslim Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ).

Dr Gideon Polya (anti-racist, Jewish Hungarian-origin Australian scientist, writer, artist  and climate change and human rights activist) (2017): “As an anti-racist Jewish Australian I applaud anti-racist Jewish Israeli Nir Baram for the humane rationality of his “A Land Without Borders” and his honest declarations: “The 2 state solution … is totally dead” and “immorality of the Occupation”. The World must demand an end to race-based Apartheid Israel after the example of post-Apartheid South Africa and its replacement by a unitary state in Palestine with return of all refugees, zero tolerance for racism, equal rights for all, one-person-one-vote, justice, goodwill, reconciliation, airport-level security, internationally-guaranteed national security initially based on present armed forces, and untrammelled access for all citizens to all of the Holy Land” (Dr Gideon Polya, 6 May 2017 comment on an interview between Geraldine Doogue and Nir Baram entitled “Journeys through the West Bank and East Jerusalem”, ABC Radio National, Saturday Extra, 6 May 20176: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/saturdayextra/a-land-without-borders/8480942 ).

 

All decent, anti-racist, humanitarians must vigorously oppose and sideline those supporting racist Zionism, Apartheid Israel and racist Western wars and occupations who are currently complicit in  0.7 million non-violent excess deaths annually; continuing, racist perversion of human rights, humanitarian  values and rational discourse in the Western democracies; ignoring of worsening climate genocide (that may kill 10 billion non-Europeans this century through unaddressed man-made climate change); and egregious anti-Jewish anti-Semitism through falsely identifying decent, anti-racist Jews with these appalling crimes.

This site is inspired by our obligation to the 30 million victims of the WW2 European Holocaust  and indeed to the victims of all other holocaust and genocide atrocities such as the 35 million Chinese killed by the Japanese in WW2 and the 6-7 million Indians starved to death by the British in the 1943-1945 WW2 Bengal Famine (see Gideon Polya, “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”, G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007:  http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/  ; Gideon Polya, “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in  “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007): http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/ockham/stories/s1445960.htm ); Gideon Polya,  “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability”, G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 1998, 2008: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/; and  see recent BBC broadcast “Bengal Famine” involving Dr Polya, Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen and other scholars: http://www.open2.net/thingsweforgot/bengalfamine_programme.html ). 

This site is also inspired by the words of outstanding Jewish American scholar Professor Jared Diamond who in his best-selling book “Collapse” (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition) enunciated the “moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people” – an injunction grossly violated by racist Zionist (RZ)-run Apartheid Israel and its racist, genocide-committing and genocide-ignoring US Alliance backers.

As perceived by UK  writer Alan Hart in his recent book “Zionism: the Real Enemy of the Jews. Volume 1. The False Messiah”” (Clarity Press), racist Zionism represents an immense threat not just to the Arab and Muslim World but also to decent, anti-racist, humanitarian Jews throughout the World (see:

http://www.claritypress.com/Hart-I.html ).

As of 2011:

 

In 1880 there were about 0.5 million Indigenous Palestinians. Of the  25,000 Jews in Palestine half were immigrants (see:  http://www.palestineremembered.com/Acre/Palestine-Remembered/Story559.html and http://www.mideastweb.org/palpop.htm ).  Palestinian casualties of war violence total about 80,000 since 1948 and about 100,000 since 1936 (see “Palestinian casualties of war”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_casualties_of_war ). However one must also consider avoidable Palestinian deaths from war-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation that now total about 1.4 million since 1948. Palestinian refugees  total about 7 million. This has been a Palestinian Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention.

 

According to the  Israeli Foreign Ministry: “From 1920 through 1999, a total of 2,500 residents of Mandatory Palestine and, since 1948, the State of Israel fell victims to hostile enemy action; in most cases, terrorist attacks” (see: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Terrorism-+Obstacle+to+Peace/Palestinian+terror+before+2000/ ) and “1,218 people have been killed by Palestinian violence and terrorism since September 2000” (see: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Terrorism-+Obstacle+to+Peace/Palestinian+terror+since+2000/Victims+of+Palestinian+Violence+and+Terrorism+sinc.htm ).

 

The race-based, racist Zionist-run Apartheid State of Israel is a democracy by genocide. Of about 12 million Palestinians only the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian  Israelis  (21% of the Israeli population) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus part of Lebanon and a near-completely ethnically cleansed part of Syria, albeit as third class citizens. 1.6 million Occupied Palestinians are abusively confined to the Gaza Concentration Camp and 2.7 million Occupied Palestinians live under highly abusive military rule in West Bank Bantustans. About 6 million Palestinians are forbidden  to even live in Palestine. There are  5.9 million Jewish Israelis and 0.3 million non-Jewish and non-Arab Israelis.

 

Each year Apartheid Israel passively kills about 3,000 Occupied Palestinian infants, passively murders about 5,600 Occupied Palestinians through deprivation and violently kills another circa 600 Occupied Palestinians. Decent anti-racists around the World must  Boycott Apartheid Israel and its racist supporters just as it successfully boycotted Apartheid Israel-supported Apartheid South Africa after the Sharpeville Massacre (60 Africans killed)  (see: https://sites.google.com/site/boycottapartheidisrael/ ). The racist Zionists and their supporters, notably the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialists (NAZIs),  must be sidelined in public life as have been like racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis, Apartheiders and KKK (see “Palestinian  Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/palestiniangenocide/  and the recent book “The Plight of the Palestinians”: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/4047-the-plight-of-the-palestinians.html ).

Pendirian BDS Malaysia Berkenaan Lawatan atau Ziarah ke Baitul Maqdis

Pendirian BDS Malaysia Berkenaan Lawatan atau Ziarah ke Baitul Maqdis

 

BDS Malaysia mengambil perhatian bahawa sekarang ini ramai rakyat Malaysia gemar melakukan lawatan ke Baitul Maqdis termasuk ke Masjid Al Aqsa. BDS  ingin menyatakan pendirian bahawa kami TIDAK BERSETUJU dengan lawatan tersebut. 

 

Ini kerana BDS Malaysia merasakan bahawa lawatan atau ziarah tersebut tidak membantu dalam usaha memboikot negara Israel. Walaupun ada golongan Palestin yang akan mendapat manfaat daripada lawatan tersebut (seperti pemilik kedai dan pembantu pelancong), namun secara umum dan jangka panjang, ia akan lebih menguntungkan rejim Zionis Israel yang mahu mewujudkan normalisasi hubungan di antara Israel dan negara lain. 

 

Semua pelawat ke Baitul Maqdis mesti mengisi borang imigresen Israel dan Israel akan menggunakan tren kemasukan pelawat ke kawasan di bawah kawalannya sebagai bukti bahawa negara Israel (yang bagi mereka adalah termasuk Tebing Barat) adalah aman dan terkawal.

Israel akan dengan bangga mengumumkan kepada dunia bahawa pelancongan ke Israel telah meningkat dan akan menggalakkan lebih ramai orang asing menziarahi Baitul Maqdis untuk menaikkan imej Israel.

 

Oleh itu, BDS Malaysia bersetuju dengan pendirian gerakan BDS antarabangsa yang menyatakan bahawa hanya rakyat Palestin yang wajar menziarahi Baitul Maqdis (termasuk Masjid Al Aqsa). Semua warga negara lain adalah tidak wajar menziarahi Baitul Maqdis dan mana-mana kawasan di bawah kawalan rejim Zionis Israel. Pengecualian hanya diberikan kepada individu atau kumpulan yang boleh membuktikan bahawa lawatan mereka akan memberikan keuntungan secara langsung kepada gerakan anti Israel (contoh adalah seperti wartawan yang masuk untuk melaporkan kekejaman rejim Israel terhadap rakyat Palestin).  

 

BDS Malaysia mengambil maklum bahawa pendirian ini adalah selaras dengan fatwa ulamak Islam yang terkenal di dunia termasuk Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi yang berpendapat bahawa selagi Baitul Maqdis dan Masjid al Aqsa adalah di bawah kawalan rejim Zionis Israel, menziarahinya adalah dilarang kerana hanya akan memberikan keuntungan dari berbagai segi kepada Israel.

BDS Malaysia ingin menyuarakan rasa terkejut dan kecewa dengan berita berkenaan lawatan oleh perwakilan dari rejim haram Israel

 

15 Februari 2018

BDS Malaysia ingin menyuarakan rasa terkejut dan kecewa dengan berita berkenaan lawatan oleh perwakilan dari rejim haram Israel ke Persidangan Ke-9 Program Penempatan Manusia PBB yang diadakan di Kuala Lumpur baru-baru ini. Berita ini adalah amat menyedihkan dan mengecewakan memandangkan seluruh dunia mengetahui bahawa rejim Israel telah berkali-kali melanggar resolusi dan peraturan PBB sendiri kerana polisinya menggalakkan pertumbuham penempatan haram di kawasan yang dirampas dari rakyat Palestin.

 

Kehadiran perwakilan dari rejim Israel di Malaysia ini juga adalah sangat mengejutkan memandangkan hanya beberapa minggu lepas kerajaan Malaysia telah menganjurkan satu demonstrasi besar-besaran di Putrajaya di mana Perdana Menteri Najib telah dengan lantang menegaskan polisi sokongan yang tidak berbelah bagi kepada rakyat Palestin dalam usaha mereka menentang kezaliman Israel. Bukan sahaja keputusan kerajaan Malaysia membenarkan kehadiran perwakilan Israel ini sangat membingungkan, bahkan ia juga menimbulkan tanda-tanya kepada kita iaitu, “Adakah kerajaan Malaysia betul-betul serius dalam pengisytiharannya mempertahankan hak rakyat Palestin atau hanya berpura-pura?”

 

Apa yang telah berlaku membuat ramai akan terpaksa menyimpulkan bahawa kenyataan lantang kerajaan Malaysia adalah sebenarnya tidak lain dan tidak bukan hanya laungan kosong atau retorik politik semata-mata dan oleh itu tidak mempunyai makna langsung.

 

Kini kerajaan dan media Israel telah mengisytiharkan kehadiran perwakilan mereka di Malaysia sebagai satu kejayaan ke arah menjalin hubungan antara Israel dan Malaysia. Wakil Israel, David Roet juga sekarang giat memaklumkan kepada umum melalui media sosial betapa Israel telah mendapat manfaat yang banyak dari lawatan dan kehadiran mereka ke Malaysia.

 

Selama ini Malaysia adalah satu-satunya negara yang tegas menolak sebarang hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel atas alasan yang sangat kukuh iaitu pencabulan hak asasi rakyat Palestin oleh Israel. Oleh itu kami menyeru kerajaan untuk terus berpegang teguh dengan pendirian yang amat terpuji tersebut. 

 

Kami juga menyeru kerajaan Malaysia agar mengambil tanggungjawab di atas apa yang telah berlaku dan mengambil tindakan yang sewajarnya terhadap semua pihak yang telah terlibat secara langsung dengan insiden pelanggaran pendirian kerajaan ini.

 

Kami juga menggesa kerajaan Malaysia untuk meminta maaf kepada rakyat Palestin atas kejadian pengkhianatan yang serius ini dan juga berjanji untuk tidak mengulangi kesilapan besar ini di masa akan datang.

 

Kami juga menjemput kerajaan Malaysia untuk berjuang bersama dengan gerakan Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) untuk memberi tekanan yang konkrit dan lebih bermakna terhadap Israel dengan memboikot negara tersebut serta institusi dan wakilnya. Kami juga menggesa kerajaan supaya bertindak tegas terhadap syarikat-syarikat yang membantu kezaliman Israel melalui penglibatan mereka dalam aktiviti pengembangan penempatan haram dan pemusnahan rumah serta harta benda rakyat Palestin.

 

Akhir sekali kita semua mesti menerima hakikat bahawa apa yang telah berlaku adalah satu pengkhianatan yang sukar dimaafkan. Oleh itu kerajaan Malaysia perlu mengambil langkah yang dapat menebus pengkhianatannya terhadap rakyat Palestin yang selama ini memandang Malaysia sebagai pembela utama perjuangan mereka.

Dr. Fadi Al Batsh from Gaza, Palestine, was ruthlessly killed

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 21, 2018

At about 6am this morning a BDS Malaysia activist, Dr. Fadi Al Batsh from Gaza, Palestine, was ruthlessly killed while walking to a surau (prayer hall) in Medan Idaman, Gombak, to perform his subuh (dawn) prayers.

The two assassins, who were on a motorcycle, fired more than 10 shots to his head and body, killing Dr. Fadi instantly. 

BDS Malaysia condemns in the strongest terms possible such a dastardly and heinous crime, more so when the victim was such a gentle, soft-spoken person never involved in any activity that by any stretch of the imagination can be described as militaristic or violent in nature. 

Dr Fadi was a lecturer with a PhD and was sponsored by Yayasan Khazanah Foundation due to his excellent results while studying at the University of Malaya.

Due to his status as a Palestinian national, the question is raised as to whether the Israel regime was involved in this killing, especially since the Malaysian government recently allowed an Israeli delegation into the country to a UN-sponsored conference.

BDS Malaysia is alarmed by what had taken place and hopes the caretaker government and the police will carry out a detailed and thorough investigation to identify those responsible for this crime and bring them to justice as soon as possible.

BDS Malaysia expresses its profound sadness and sorrow over the loss of a beloved member of the movement and offers its condolences to the widow and family of Dr. Fadi Al Batsh. We grieve alongside them and pray that Allah (swt) will grant them strength and patience in this difficult and sad times.

May Allah (swt) grant Dr. Fadi’s soul a place among the martyrs and the righteous. He will be sorely missed.
