British doctors have called for the removal of Israel from the World Medical Association (WMA) over claims of “medical torture” on Palestinians seeking treatment.

Some 71 UK doctors have started to pressure the WMA to revoke the membership of the Israel Medical Association over claims that “our doctors perform medical torture on Palestinian patients,” said Ze’ev Feldman, the representative of the Israeli doctors, during a Knesset meeting held on the subject of boycotts against Israeli academic institutions on Wednesday.

If the British physicians succeed, the Tel Aviv regime will be banned from taking part in international medical conferences and publishing in journals.

The move follows similar measures launched by scholars around the world over the past few months.

In December, over 200 South African scholars released a statement announcing their support of an academic boycott of Israel.

In November, the American Anthropological Association, the largest professional organization of anthropologists in the world, approved a resolution to boycott Israeli academic institutions.

Moreover, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel, known as BDS, is gaining momentum in US college campuses and churches as well as in many places in Europe. The BDS movement seeks to end the Israeli occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands.

    Izrahell is the enemy of us all. Pretty clear it is a terrorist state..set up as this from day one. Time to round them up and isolate them.

      Lynn, humanity is at a crossroads; we can dismantle this illegal, bankrupt, corrupt, bandit, criminal, pariah, state misleadingly called ‘Israel’, round up and execute its top murderous criminals while corralling anyone with Israeli or such dual citizenship in a ‘safe area’ far away from any other living entity – as I cannot think of any country (or wild animal) that would want such genetically unhinged specimens of humanity set loose among the population – OR we can allow it to continue to wreak havoc and destruction on the ROTW as it has done since its fateful spawning.

      Lose one bastard creation of a country(sic) but save all the others so to speak.

    “UK doctors call for Israel’s removal from World” Medical Association

    I can’t see any reason for the erroneous and superfluous words Medical and Association. It must have been a glitch when posting the article.

    Also, I think UK doctors call for Israel’s removal from Earth reads a lot better.
