Starve the Beast Part II

The West Bank thieves survive on other people's money, like that they get from BOOKING.com. Airnb did the right thing and no longer lists properties in the West Bank and now, it's time for Booking.com to do the same:
The popular global tourism company Airbnb recently announced its decision to de-list properties in illegal Israeli settlements, a move which Human Rights Watch (HRW) praised as "a stand against discrimination, displacement, and land theft."

Now it's time for Booking.com to follow suit.

Booking.com stated to HRW that it merely provides a platform for rental, which it claims does not support settlements.

But that is just not the case.

Booking.com needs to recognize that, while its intention is to remain impartial, its laissez-faire policy actually harms the people of Palestine and bolsters a belligerent state.

HRW's business and human rights director Arvind Ganesan explained that global tourism companies "contribute to entrenching a two-tiered discriminatory regime in the West Bank" when they list properties in illegal Israeli settlements. They also provide an economic boost and perpetuate the illusion that settlements are legitimate – when in reality they are built on stolen Palestinian land, and illegal under international humanitarian law.

Please take a minute to contact Booking.com and tell them they need to take an active stand against oppression.

Thank you! – Alison Weir

  3. Darling. The only 'final' solution is that all Jews, and Jew adjacent, should all be placed on a desert island. THEN, put all their shekels, all their dollars, on the island with them.

  5. After all, doesn't gold taste good? Delish. Usrael wouldn't mind tasting gold. They love it. After all, look at what they've done in the name of gold.

    It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.

    Weep, humans.
