UN lists 112 businesses linked to Israeli settlements

"The Palestinians said the report was a "victory for international law", but Israel called it "shameful".

...

About 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel's occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967. The settlements are widely considered illegal under international law, though Israel has always disputed this.

The Palestinians have long called for the removal of the settlements, arguing that their presence on land they claim for a future independent Palestinian state makes it almost impossible to make such a state a reality.

Last month, US President Donald Trump unveiled a peace plan that may pave the way for Israel annexing the settlements.

In an address to the UN Security Council on Tuesday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his rejection of Mr Trump's plan, describing the proposed Palestinian state as looking "like a Swiss cheese".

This is exactly the rot that Pelosi has allowed to fester in her party: targeting and punishing with as Omar calls it, "economic warfare", anyone who dare do business with Jews.

The U.N. is a joke and has gone full-bore anti-Semite since Trump got elected.

My feelings about Israel and US support of them precedes Trump by decades.

We're talking Israel here.

Good try at conflating the two.

You're starting to believe your own propaganda.

What is this other than a boycott to punish Jewish companies and anyone doing business with Jewish companies?

The pro-Palestine, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood Left is trying to financially starve the settlements.

It really blows me away that states like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and China are passing judgment on Israel. The fact they get away with it is nauseating. I'm glad the US withdrew from the Human Rights Council.

Human Rights Watch said the list "should put all companies on notice: to do business with illegal settlements is to aid in the commission of war crimes."

HRW is a deep-pockets, left-wing NGO and for over a decade, has declared itself a ring leader for BDS.

It blows my mind that Trump strong arms other countries for personal favours and the fact he gets away with it is nauseating.

It blows my mind that now you are upset at Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and China for passing judgement when Trump lets a man be brutally dismembered and still is buddies with MBS, and Trump assassinates a foreign official, those actions are just as nauseating.

That would be a foreign terrorist.

What is it with people that are nauseated over the death of a known terrorist killing so many innocent people????

Still foreign, yes a terrorist, but a slippery slope.

What is it about people not being upset over the Khashoggi murder? and that the POTUS had a 'gut' feeling that MBS was telling the truth when he said he did not know about it. He did, admitted it, and still Trump sidles up to him like a puppy wanting a treat.

South Africa?

Before or after the fall of Apartheid?

Re the allegation that HRW is a left-wing NGO:

Since when are human rights solely the concern of the left?
