International Boycott of Israel Gaining Traction Worldwide

EDINBURGH, 25 July (RIA Novosti), Mark Hirst – The international community no longer buys the Israeli stance on the ongoing conflict with Palestine, Maya Wind, an Israeli peace activist living in Jerusalem, told RIA Novosti on Friday.

“The Israeli government, the Israeli media and the Israeli mainstream discourse is full of discussion about this global campaign and how, increasingly, Israel is being de-legitimized in our actions and in our occupation over the Palestinian people… It is no longer accepted within the international community,” Wind stressed.

“This is part of a pattern and cycle of violence. But what has changed is that the international boycott is really gaining traction worldwide,” she elaborated.

Retired British Navy Submarine Commander Feargal Dalton added, “With my military background I can say the highest cause of conflicts around the world is acquisition of resources… People often dress them up as sectarian or ethnic, and there are elements of that, but look at the situation with Israel and Gaza and it’s clear for Israel this is a land grab,” Dalton told RIA Novosti.

“They want the land because they want to expand. We can dress it up as some ethnic, religious conflict, but the nub of it is about resources,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu excluded the possibility of a two-state solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and with it any chance of peace, a former CIA officer told RIA Novosti on Friday.

“Netanyahu has excluded the possibility of a two state solution, so now that is gone,” Robert Baer, a CIA officer of 21 years who was stationed in the Middle East, said.

“With continued settlements there is nothing in this to suggest we are ever going to have any sort of peace. It’s a new world. You can displace the Palestinians and say, this is no longer your country,” Baer stressed.
