MENSEN DRINKEN BRAK WATER!!!!!” en wat daaronder staat.

Geachte Directie

Geacht Management,

Zoals u zich wellicht kunt herinneren, heb ik u in de loop

der Tijden een aantal keren bestookt met mailbrieven met de

eis, geen producten uit Israel meer te verkopen! 

Mijn laatste mail aan u dateert van 23 april 2023!

Zie noot 1

Meestal ging dat om [tenminste, dat heb ik bij een bezoek

aan uw filiaal in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost geconstateerd] om mango’s

en/of avocado’s, die in de aanbieding waren [2]

Nu dacht ik eerlijk gezegd, dat u uw Leven gebeterd had, omdat ik

na mijn Brandmail van 23 april jongstleden [3], althans in uw

filiaal Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, geen avocado’s uit Israel meer

gezien had.

”YES!”, dacht ik

Eindelijk is de boodschap bij VOMAR aangekomen [hopelijk ben

ik namelijk niet de enige, die u hierover heeft aangeschreven] en

beseft de VOMAR, dat zij met de verkoop van producten uit Bezettings

en Apartheidsstaat Israel [4] moreel medeverantwoordelijk is

voor diens wandaden en bloed aan haar handen heeft.

Wie schetst mijn Woede en Verbazing toen ik gisteren [dd woensdag

1 november 2023] bij een bezoek aan weer uw filiaal Amsterdam

Zuid-Oost constateerde, dat u het heeft bestaan om in uw aanbiedingen

folder van 29 october tot 4 november [5] avocado’s in de aanbieding had

[en op dit moment van schrijven dus nog heeft] : twee pakken voor 4 euro en WEER afkomstig uit Israel!!

Ik had al een pakje gepakt [avocado’s zijn voor mij een delicatesse] en

toen ik zag, dat zij uit Israel kwamen, vol walging weer teruggezet.

Ik zeg het u eerlijk:

Als het geen voedsel was geweest maar een ander product, had ik het

op de grond gesmeten!!

Want dat u geen gehoor gegeven hebt aan mijn eis/oproep [en waarschijnlijk ook van anderen] om uw verkoop van Israelische

producten te staken [6] is Een Ding.

Dat u het Lef hebt om juist op dit dramatische Moment

van de Geschiedenis door te gaan, met droge ogen, Israelische

producten te verkopen, is ronduit schokkend

WAAROM JUIST NU?

Moet ik het u nog uitleggen?

Dat ga ik wel doen, al is het meer dan weerzinwekkend, dat het nog nodig is, sinds het feit, dat Israel een bezettings en apartheidsstaat is, die zich in

de loop der jaren heeft schuldig gemaakt aan onderdrukking, foltering,

administratieve detentie en apartheid [7] al genoeg zou moeten zijn.

Blijkbaar niet voor u!

MISDADIGE ISRAELISCHE INVALLEN IN GAZA

Sinds de verwerpelijke en bloedige 7 october aanval van

Palestijnse verzetsbeweging Hamas [8] heeft Bezettingsstaat Israel als reactie Gaza gebombardeerd [wat trouwens nog steeds doorgaat], waarbij

 waarbij

niet alleen Witte fosfor is gebruikt [kijk maar goed wat

Human Rights Watch daarover meldt, noot 9] maar ook geen enkel onderscheid is gemaakt tussen combatanten [militairen

en strijders] en non combatanten [burgers] [10], wat tot duizenden burgerslachtoffers

geleid heeft 

Meer dan 7000, volgens de Israelische mensenrechtenorganisatie

Btselem! [11]

En dat was een Btselem bericht van 27 october! [12]

Ondertussen zijn er veel meer doden bijgekomen, vooral ook

in vluchtelingenkamp Jabalia! [13]

Helaas zijn wij met deze Praktijken bij Israelische militaire

invallen in Gaza bekend [14]

Willekeurige militaire aanvallen, een groot aantal burgerdoden [15]

UITHONGERING BURGERBEVOLKING

MENSEN DRINKEN BRAK WATER!!!!!

Maar wat dit alles hier nog monsterachtiger maakt is, dat het hier niet

bij blijft! 

Want wat Israel ook heeft gedaan als reactie op de7 october Hamas aanval is een totale Blokkade van Gaza instellen, wat betekent, dat de

burgerbevolking geen gas, water, brandstof en medicijnen ontvangt! [16]

Moet ik uitleggen, dat dit monsterachtig is.

Moet ik uitleggen, dat dit kwaadaardig  is?

Moet ik uitleggen, dat dit als ”collectieve straf” internationaalrechtelijk

verboden is? [17]

Dat uithongering van een burgerbevolking een oorlogsmisdaad is?

[18]

Weet u, dat Gazanen wegens gebrek aan water BRAK WATER drinken

[19], wat natuurijk levensgevaarlijk is?

EPILOOG

Meer hoef ik er niet aan toe te voegen.

U verkoopt nog steeds, ondanks talloze opropoen,

dat niet te doen [20] producten uit een Staat, die sinds 1967 de

Palestijnse gebieden bezet, onderdrukt, zich schuldig maakt

aan foltering, administratieve detentie, landdiefstal via illegale

nederzettingen, apartheid.

En nu wordt de burgerbevolking in Gaza uitgehongerd, van toegang tot water, electriciteit, medicijnen en voedsel afgesneden, mensen

drinken brak water [21] en u hebt het Lef, nog steeds Israelische

producten te verkopen.

Walgelijk vind ik het en ik maak het overal bekend, daarop

kunt u rekenen, digitaal en anderszins.

Stop er dus direct mee, als u niet medeplichtig wilt

zijn aan het faciliteren van Bezettings en Uithongeringsstaat Israel.

EEN SCHANDE IS HET!!!!!

Vriendelijke groeten

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor

The 7 october 2023 surprise attack of Hamas on the South of Israel

with thousands of rockets codenamed ”Al-Aqsa Flood”, suprised me,

like doubtless many others, but I was not completely taken aback.

It was a bloody attack in which a great number of Israeli civilians

were killed [according to Israeli autorities at least 1200] or abducted and

at least 260 people were killed by the Hamas attack on a

Festival near kibbutz Re”im.

Of course this deserves strong condemnation, since targetting

civilians is not only inhumane, but prohibited by International

Humanitarian Law, declaring clear distinction between combatants

[soldiers and fighters, who are legitimate targets] and non-combatants [civilians,

who must be protected]

So I understand the common [especially Western] sympathy with the Israeli

victims, because I share the feeling.

But there my understanding stops.

Because the almost hysterical ”we stand with Israel” reactions, especially from

the Western World [USA,EU], completely with Israeli flags hanging from their

official buildings [luckily not in Scotland!] is not only hypocrite.

It is disgusting!

Disgusting, because it implies support to Israel as a State and that is, to say

it mildly, controversial.

Because the bloody 7 october Hamas attack and subsequent abduction-operation divert the attention of the important fact, that since 1967 Israel

is the occupying power in the West Bank, Eastern Jerusalem and Gaza [still

occupied according to International Law since Israel controls the Gaza borders, airspace and territorial waters]

Not only Israel refuses to withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories

despite UN Security Resolution 242 [1967], there is a decennialong brutal

oppression, Israel is guilty of torture of prisoners, administrative detention,

bloody military attacks in Gaza and the West Bank, with as macabre result thousands and thousands civilian victims, the building [since end of the sixties]

of illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian territory [land theft!], extrajudicial

execution, apartheid, etc, etc

En despite this brutal occupation the EU never took any sanction against

the State of Israel, which made them complicit in the Israeli occupation

and oppression.

According to International Law every people has the right to rise up against

an occupation, which includes armed resistance.

So Hamas, as any other Palestinian organisation, is in his right 

in this regard, but of course according International Humanitarian Law

Hamas must refrain from attacks on civilians.

By the way, I wonder whether the EU will also condemn Israel, which right

now launches a bloody attack in Gaza by bombing

Gaza for already two weeks, with more than 4000 deaths, as denying the Gazan population water, medicines,

fuel and food supplies, in the same strong terms as it condemned Hamas.

According to International Law every people has the right to rise up against

an occupation, which includes armed resistance.

So Hamas, as any other Palestinian organisation, is in his right 

in this regard, but of course according International Humanitarian Law

Hamas must refrain from attacks on civilians.

By the way, I wonder whether the EU will also condemn Israel, which right

now launches a bloody attack in Gaza by bombing

Gaza for already two weeks, with more than 2200 deaths, as denying the Gazan population water, medicines,

fuel and food supplies, in the same strong terms as it condemned Hamas.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor

The 7 october 2023 surprise attack of Hamas on the South of Israel

with thousands of rockets codenamed ”Al-Aqsa Flood”, suprised me,

like doubtless many others, but I was not completely taken aback.

It was a bloody attack in which a great number of Israeli civilians

were killed [according to Israeli autorities at least 1200] or abducted and

at least 260 people were killed by the Hamas attack on a

Festival near kibbutz Re”im.

Of course this deserves strong condemnation, since targetting

civilians is not only inhumane, but prohibited by International

Humanitarian Law, declaring clear distinction between combatants

[soldiers and fighters, who are legitimate targets] and non-combatants [civilians,

who must be protected]

So I understand the common [especially Western] sympathy with the Israeli

victims, because I share the feeling.

But there my understanding stops.

Because the almost hysterical ”we stand with Israel” reactions, especially from

the Western World [USA,EU], completely with Israeli flags hanging from their

official buildings [luckily not in Scotland!] is not only hypocrite.

It is disgusting!

Disgusting, because it implies support to Israel as a State and that is, to say

it mildly, controversial.

Because the bloody 7 october Hamas attack and subsequent abduction-operation divert the attention of the important fact, that since 1967 Israel

is the occupying power in the West Bank, Eastern Jerusalem and Gaza [still

occupied according to International Law since Israel controls the Gaza borders, airspace and territorial waters]

Not only Israel refuses to withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories

despite UN Security Resolution 242 [1967], there is a decennialong brutal

oppression, Israel is guilty of torture of prisoners, administrative detention,

bloody military attacks in Gaza and the West Bank, with as macabre result thousands and thousands civilian victims, the building [since end of the sixties]

of illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian territory [land theft!], extrajudicial

execution, apartheid, etc, etc

En despite this brutal occupation the EU never took any sanction against

the State of Israel, which made them complicit in the Israeli occupation

and oppression.

According to International Law every people has the right to rise up against

an occupation, which includes armed resistance.

So Hamas, as any other Palestinian organisation, is in his right 

in this regard, but of course according International Humanitarian Law

Hamas must refrain from attacks on civilians.

By the way, I wonder whether the EU will also condemn Israel, which right

now launches a bloody attack in Gaza by bombing

Gaza for aldready two weeks, with more than 2200 deaths, as denying the Gazan population water, medicines,

fuel and food supplies, in the same strong terms as it condemned Hamas.
