50 years of Israeli occupation: The roadblock to peace Overview: In June 2017, it will be 50 years since Israel took over the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza by force against the wishes of the Palestinians who lived there. It is the job of the UN Security Council to reverse aggression of this kind, which is in breach of Article 2.4 of the UN Charter, applying whatever sanctions are necessary to force the aggressor to withdraw. That is what happened when Iraq took over Kuwait by force in 1990. Unfortunately, the Security Council has failed to reverse Israel’s 1967 aggression. As a consequence, Palestinians have been forced to endure almost 50 years of Israeli military occupation without any say in how they are governed – and there is no end in sight.

Israel: EU Losing Sight Of The Facts Overview: While the state of Israel continues its colonial project in the Occupied Palestinian Territories with its relentless settlement expansion, its shoot-to-kill policy and its arrest and detention of minors, the EU and other international players continue to ignore the fact that without sanctions against Israel to force it to withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories, the two-state solution is dead.

Without sanctions against Israel, the "two-state solution" is dead Overview: The "two-state solution" is dead unless serious and sustained economic sanctions are applied to Israel by the international community to force it to withdraw from the Occupied Palestinian Territories. (Click on cover to download the full Briefing) September 2015, PDF 80 kB.
Israeli Settlements: Colonies and War Crimes (Factsheet) Overview: When a state, which is occupying territory not its own, builds settlements on that territory and transfers its own citizens into them, that process is a war crime, under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Israel has occupied the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) since1967 and has transferred well over half a million of its own citizens into that territory. September 2015 (Download PDF 59 kB)
