University of Malta academics in solidarity with the people in Gaza



We, the undersigned academics from the University of Malta, join the call of seven Peace Nobel Prize winners, intellectuals and artists from the whole world for a military embargo towards Israel (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/18/arms-trade-israel-attack-gaza )

Military trade and joint military-related research relations with Israel embolden Israeli impunity in committing grave violations of international law and facilitate the entrenchment of Israel’s system of occupation, colonisation and systematic denial of Palestinian rights. We call on the UN and governments across the world to take immediate steps to implement a comprehensive and legally binding military embargo on Israel, similar to that imposed on South Africa during apartheid.

We, the undersigned, appeal to the Government of Malta to condemn the Israeli aggression on Gaza. We also affirm our support to the Palestine Solidarity Network (Malta), a group of organisations and individuals active against the systematic oppression and dispossession of the Palestinian population at the hands of the Israeli state and its allies. The network works for:

• an end to Israeli occupation and colonization

• the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and lands, as stipulated by the 194 UN resolution.

• the dismantling of the current Apartheid system that, with its practices of segregation and institutional racism, is denying the fundamental human rights of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and of Palestinian citizens of Israel

• Israeli compliance with international law
