Israeli sources are worried about the possibility of the EU extending the boycott of Israeli poultry products, slated to start in September, to include other goods, PLS48 website reported on Monday.The report cites Israeli Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir telling Maariv newspaper that: “Israel is exerting much effort with the EU to undermine new regulations taking place.”

The newspaper revealed that pessimism is now prevailing amongst Israeli officials over fears that they will not be able to succeed in preventing or, at least, postponing the new regulations because of the current Israeli assault on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

“The most worrying issue,” the newspaper reported, “is that the boycott will expand to include all products and services produced in the Israeli settlements inside the occupied Palestinians territories and Golan Heights.”

Israeli officials have asked Israeli producers to distinguish the poultry and dairy products that are produced in the settlements, in accordance with the new EU regulations.

Also, Israel’s agriculture ministry is no longer exporting poultry products to the EU market. The products will instead be sold to international markets and local Israeli markets.

The expected losses due to the new regulations are estimated to be about NIS70 million. But the worrying issue is that the boycott could expand to include other products.

On 17 February, the EU commissioner decided to put new regulations in place on Israeli veterinary services and poultry products originating in the settlements.

Israeli sources expect that Israeli fish will be next after the ban on poultry products.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

* 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.
