#UK Tory donor arming Israeli military

By moving from supplying civilian machines to military vehicles, JCB has entered a new phase of complicity with Israeli war crimes.”

British campaigners are calling on one of the top-ten Tory donors, JCB’s boss Sir Anthony Bamford, to stop his company’s supporting of the Israeli regime’s “war crimes against the Palestinian people” through arms and equipment sales.

“JCB’s equipment has already been documented in use on illegal projects such as the construction of the Apartheid Wall, Israeli settlements and the demolition of Palestinian homes,” War on Want campaign group said.

“But by moving from supplying civilian machines to military vehicles, JCB has entered a new phase of complicity with Israeli war crimes,” it added.

War on Want said that an Israeli army announcement from September 2011 shows that JCB has supplied an armored bulldozer, the High Mobility Engineer Excavator (HMEE), to the Israeli military to be used “by the paratroopers’ division of the Israeli army’s Central Command.”

The campaign group has in a letter called on Bamford to take the necessary steps to end JCB’s arms sales to the regime and ensure its equipment “is not used to commit human rights violations in Palestine.”

Bamford is one of the top ten donors to the British Conservatives and has donated a massive £1,106,000 to the party since they formed the coalition government with Liberal Democrats in May 2010.

The revelation that he is profiting from Palestinians’ plight is hugely embarrassing to Conservatives especially after Foreign Secretary William Hague’s repeated – though unwilling -“condemnations” of the “illegal” Israeli settlement-building in the Palestinian territories.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar

* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
