AOHR calls for int’l action against HP for human rights violations

[ PIC 25/07/2012 – 10:15 AM ]

LONDON, (PIC)– The London-based Arab organization for human rights called on the international community to take action against the American company Hewlett-Packard (HP) for its complicity in serious Israeli violations against human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Arab organization for human rights (AOHR) accused HP of providing under contract different Israeli ministries with the latest software and hardware technology for military and security purposes in settlements and at checkpoints.

“The involvement of such large company having interests in many Arab and Islamic countries in providing the occupation with the latest technology has significant implications and raises many questions, most importantly, does this company have no fear of losing its business interests in the Arab and Islamic worlds? Why does such a big company with branches in more than 170 countries and more than 300,000 employees, and whose annual proceeds are estimated at $126 billion need to enter into contracts with an occupying force violating human rights? Is its contract with the occupation regime motivated by profit or an ideological commitment towards it?” a report issued by AOHR stated on Tuesday.

“The company’s focus on activities at checkpoints and the segregation wall is sufficient to answer some of these questions as the company provided checkpoints with an electronic system known as Basel operated and maintained by it in order to control the movement of Palestinians at these points,” AOHR clarified.

“As the company is fully aware of the serious violations the Palestinians are exposed to at these points, its contract to provide such services in such areas reveals that its motives are not only for financial gains but also for an ideological commitment to help an occupying force against a vulnerable people,” it added.

AOHR also noted that HP company also provided the Israeli navy with guidance and control equipment used in the blockade on Gaza and especially in attacking aid ships as happened with Freedom Flotilla convoy.

HP company, according to the report, also helps promote the economy of illegal Israeli settlements through its subsidiaries in Modi’in Illit settlement by marketing the products of these settlements.

HP also participated in the smart city project of Ariel settlement (illegal under international law) by establishing an electronic system for storing information and facilitating communication between various facilities and institutions in the settlement.

AOHR called on the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the European Union to pressure HP to rescind its contacts with the Israeli regime and its settlement companies.

It also urged the Arab and Muslim nations to boycott HP in order to force it to end its activities in the occupied lands.

Israel is not looking for Peace



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.
