Time to boycott Israel until they abide by laws

Published 07/03/2014

LAST week, the day after Amnesty International released its report, 'Trigger-happy: Israel's use of excessive force in the West Bank', another Palestinian, Moataz Washaha (25), was killed by the Israeli army.

The report outlines the Israeli military's "callous disregard for human life" during the last three years and calls on the EU and the US to suspend arms and munitions transfers to Israel.

It is time the Government took a stand and called for Israel's special trading relations with the EU to be suspended until it upholds international law.
