Israel’s Demand to Remove pro-BDS Posters from London Tube

By RT

Posters promoting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement that criticized the policies and actions of Israel’s right-wing government are being removed from London’s tube stations after pressure from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Observing Israeli Apartheid week, the posters created by the London Palestine Action group were designed to look like real advertisements and feature facts about the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel.

Netanyahu condemned the posters, directing his foreign ministry to demand that the UK remove them.

Yair Lapid, leader of the Yesh Atid party, described the ads as “anti-semitic, anti-Israel signs calling us an apartheid state, accusing us of torturing children, or murder, of terrible things.”

He reportedly phoned London Mayor Boris Johnson to tell him that the ad campaign would not tolerated by the Israeli government. Johnson assured Lapid that the signs would be taken down. He apparently complied late Tuesday afternoon and the posters have being removed.

London Palestine said“The fact that MKs are calling the London mayor to talk about some posters makes it clear just how scared Israel are of being delegitimized. They’re scared of BDS, and terrified people will see their regime for what it is: occupation and apartheid.”

There were four posters in the campaign. The first accused the UK of complicity in Israeli violations of international law through arms sales. “Apartheid is Great” it read. “British made arms were used by Israel to massacre Palestinians in Gaza in 2014. Over 100 UK companies continue to supply military equipment to Israel. They directly profit from Israeli apartheid and contribute to the militarized collective punishment of Palestinians.”

Another accused the UK’s state-funded media outlet, the BBC, of bias. “Why is the BBC reporting biased in favor of Israel?” It featured a quote from Tim Llewellyn, a former BBC Middle East correspondent, who said “We have become used to the fact that, in a BBC newsroom, an Israeli life is worth the lives of an infinite number of Palestinians.”

One poster targeted G4S, a controversial British security firm that runs a number of prisons in Israel. “Over 500 Palestinian children are held without trial at G4S equipped Israeli prisons every year,” it read.

The fourth focused on the demolition of Palestinian homes, a punitive measure carried out by Israeli security forces. ”Israel demolished 1,177 Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in 2016,” it said.

    Someday, somewhere, somebody, will have the courage to say “NO”

    I agree with salty. Someone should say no. Given that the zio’s own the british media and british banking, and the british government is as cringeworthy as the good ole US of fcukin A’s government when it comes to licking Nutty’s arse, I don’t see who will say no. Our government?. Gideon has doubled our owe Rothschild vouchers. It’s a fcukin joke, and someone is desperately trying to wreck my computer. Well all I can is, “give it your best shot, because I’m slow to anger”,

      Ian try linuxmint.com for your OS.

      Get rid of windows it is total spyware.

      • Gordon says:

        Linux mint was hacked last week. Not sure what damage was done.

      • ian says:

        I’ll give it a try ferryt, thanks.

      • ferryt says:

        Ver 17.3 was compromised afaik. Its all on the web.

        17.2 works just fine.

        There is a chat option in the start menu ‘hexchat’ that will load Linux mint help support where people will help you if you get stuck.

        All free and supported for the next few years – see their release roadmap.

        Once you jump you won’t go back to windows. See ‘dual boot’ if you want to keep your windows installation too.

        Cheers Ferryt, I got it and am running it here, thanks, I’ll see how it goes.

    I think the fact that these posters went up in the first place is significant and a sure sign that the Zionist Lie Dam holding back the Truth is about to burst. Was it ever so apt that ‘lies have speed but truth has endurance’?

    Of course, once the posters were up, the fake Israeli pariah state was on a hiding to nothing – damned if they do (nothing) and damned if they don’t (do something).

    Whoever managed to get these posters up in the first place, possibly had this in mind, knowing full well that they wouldn’t be up for long.
    As a result of the posters going up and then being taken down at the behest/insistence of the lunatic Nutanyahu, many more out there are now aware of both BDS and the immense and disproportionate lobbying power and cruelty of the murderous bandit state.

    The BDS guys had probably studied Napoleon and cleverly maneuvered this Zionist enemy of, and threat to, all living things on Earth into a kind of ‘corner’ where doing anything/nothing about the posters was ‘a least worst option’ scenario at best:

    “When the enemy of mankind is forced to make a mistake, don’t for Heaven’s sake interrupt them.” The posters were up and they’re now down. One small step for the BDS; one giant leap for the saving of Mankind.

      Thanks for the links Aldous. I read Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago back when it was famous, and no-one now believes my rants, when I tell them what went on. This will back me up.

      Wise words. Wise words.

      It is now the duty of every patriot to put all their weight onto the cracks to bring the dam down. All other matters must take second billing to this urgent priority, in order to then get to the real game of truth, justice and retribution.

      Personally the interest is in reviewing th elast 75 years very carefully to find every rat and turncoat. The time for some to switch and try to buy some late redemption is running out.

  4. Men Scryfa says:

    Personally I find BDS as weak, unambitious, passive, and potentially a hiding place for controlled opposition.

    I myself am calling for immediate and outright Bombing of the false Israel.

    • ian says:

      I admire your boldness. It would be what some of them deserve, but there are children in Israel too and dead children of any nationality would certainly be a cause for much sadness and regret. We’d only be doing to them what they do to Palestine, and that to me is wrong.

      • Men Scryfa says:

        Boldness. Yes I suppose. I also suppose it is the kind of thing that leads to threats of death, threats of being fitted up as a paedo [not that that is very credible but hey when did rationality ever stop a psychopath?] threats of death or harm to ones family..

        But hey that is fine. That is normal isn’t it?
        But to suggest bombing the phony Israel for breaches of Int Law, like was done to Iraq or a load of other places, No, No that is beyond the pale is it?

        What did the Good LORD warn us about the hypocrites, the liars, the vipers, murderers and thieves?

    Listen to this little snitch:

    ” ‘I got off at Seven Sisters and spoke to the police about it but they didn’t really do anything about it.

    ‘The video I shot isn’t the half of it – they were singing about the Holocaust and Aushwitz – I’ve heard that kind of thing before but it doesn’t normally happen with Arsenal.

    ‘There weren’t really any other Spurs fans on the train, but there were normal commuters.

    No one seemed shocked, some people were actually laughing.

    ‘I was really offended by it.’ ”

    “No one seemed shocked, some people were actually laughing.”

    Laughing. Of course we are all laughing. Laughing in derision and disgust.

    How else do you expect us to act after our nation has been intentionally destroyed?

    And Ian above is trying to justify not bombing the phony Israel. There was no problem with bombing Belgrade or Baghdad, or Benghazi – but Tel Aviv NO, NO WAY, IMPOSSIBLE, UNTHINKABLE
