Video: Moataz Washaha’s family asks us to boycott Israel

on 9 Comments


In this powerful video two siblings of Moataz Washaha, the 24 year old Palestinian man assassinated by Israeli forces on the morning of February 27th, ask the world to boycott Israel.

My name is Thaer Washaha and I am the brother of martyr Moataz Washaha. I ask all of the free world to boycott the Israeli occupation. This occupation’s arrogance gets us to pay for it through the things we buy from them. I ask the world to boycott this occupation: economically, socially, culturally, and academically.

And Moataz’s sister Shorouq

And I am the sister of martyr Moataz Washaha. My name is Shorouq. Here is where my brother was killed. He was killed in cold blood. I ask all the world to boycott Israel in its entirety. And I ask the same to all institutions dealing with the Israeli occupation. Boycott the Occupation.

Why do we reward them? Why should we give our money to the occupation through the purchase of good and strengthen their economy? I ask everyone to boycott this occupation. Boycott is an act of resistance.

Thanks to Solidarity Movement for Free Palestine (SFP).

    Washaha was a violent terrorist who holed up in his house and had weapons. The world is a better place without him and doesn’t give a crap what his sister wants.

      How very wrong you are, ‘Shuki’. My guess is that you also approve of the latest murder(s) by your beloved IOF. Here’s one in which the goons killed a Jordanian judge…………..

      “Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh summoned an Israeli Embassy diplomat to discuss the incident as dozens of angry Jordanians chanting “death to Israel” protested outside the embassy in Amman, the Jordanian capital.

      The Jordanian parliament called two weeks ago in a non-binding resolution for expelling the Israeli ambassador and closing the embassy over an attempt by Israeli lawmakers to pass a measure that would give Israel sovereignty over Islamic holy places in Jerusalem, currently managed by Jordan.

      Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah strongly condemned the death of Zeiter and called for an international investigation into the shooting.

      The incident also comes two weeks after Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian in the West Bank town of Birzeit and two others in the Gaza Strip and after Amnesty International said in a report that Israel uses excessive force with “callous disregard” to Palestinian life in the occupied territories.

      Israel turned Zeiter’s body over to the Palestinian Authority for burial in his West Bank hometown. The burial will take place on Tuesday after the arrival of his family from Jordan, Palestinian officials said.”,0,3225044.story#ixzz2vf1MMgy3


      “”The Israeli occupation soldiers killed Raed deliberately. If he allegedly provoked a soldier at the checkpoint, that soldier could have fired one shot at his foot, but he in fact fired several shots at his body before another soldier fired more shots. It was a targeted assassination,” Zieter’s nephew Nafi told reporters during the funeral.”


      “Mohammad Zayd told Ma’an that about 8 a.m. he, Zeiter and another woman were late to return to the bus after the first Israeli inspection point.

      When they were returning, an Israeli soldier pushed Zeiter, they started scuffling and Zeiter was brought to the floor. Zeiter then stood up and shoved the soldier, who in turn fired a shot that barely missed Zeiter, Zayd said.

      The soldier then proceeded to fire three shots that hit Zeiter in the chest, leaving him dead on the floor, Zayd added, explaining that he tried to resuscitate Zeiter to no avail.

      Zayd added that medics arrived almost an hour later, and covered Zeiter’s body, while Israeli police closed the scene and unloaded passengers off the bus and ordered them to the ground in order to search them. ”

        Headline you never, ever see: ‘Netanyahu Apologizes’

        “Israel issued a formal apology on Tuesday over the killing of Jordanian judge Raed Zueter by Israeli soldiers at the Allenby crossing.

        In a rare move, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement expressing “regret” for Zueter’s death and sending “sympathies to the people and government of Jordan.”

        “In light of our commitment to the peace treaty, Israel has already shared with Jordan the results of its preliminary investigation of the incident. Israel has also agreed to a Jordanian request to establish a joint Israeli-Jordanian team to complete the investigation. The joint team will commence its work promptly,” the statement said.

        The unusual statement was issued after marathon talks over the last 24 hours between the prime minister’s envoy Isaac Molho and senior Jordanian government officials intended to prevent any escalation. ”

        (Reuters) – “Israel expressed its regret on Tuesday over the killing of a Jordanian judge, who was shot by Israeli soldiers at a border crossing, and promised Jordan to carry out a joint investigation into his death.

        The Israeli military had earlier denounced Judge Raed Zeiter as a “terrorist”, saying he was shot dead on Monday after he had attacked soldiers at the Allenby Bridge crossing while making his way to the occupied West Bank.”

        Man up, King Abdullah! What would your father do– after all the site of this murder, the Allenby crossing, is really King Hussein Bridge…

        “Allenby Bridge, also known as Karama Bridge, or King Hussein Bridge, is the only crossing point for Palestinians travelling through the West Bank to Jordan and the rest of the world.”

        >> Israel expressed its regret on Tuesday over the killing of a Jordanian judge …

        Most sources are reporting the story as “man shouts ‘Allahu akbar!’ and attacks soldiers; they shoot at his legs; he grabs a soldier and starts strangling him; he is then shot dead”.

        The L.A. Times’ story, however, is VASTLY different:
        >> While a soldier was passing a metal detector on Zeiter’s body, the latter tried to wrestle the detector from the soldier. Another nearby soldier opened fire at Zeiter, who fell to the ground, before the first soldier shot and killed him.

        Interesting. According to Le Monde, Jordan’s foreign affairs minister has expressed condemnation to the Israeli chargé d’affaires and demanded a full report of the incident.

      Shuki I don’t believe liars. Israel’s record of lies goes back a life time

      The fact that the Jewish state and its apologist supporters are willing to break the basic tenets of Judaism is sickening and;
      any state in breach of conventions, laws and a UN Charter adopted in large part because of what befell our fellows under the stinking Nazis deserves to be wiped off the map unless it changes its ways.

      In 65 years since its creation the Zionist Movement’s Israel has ignored the law, the UN Charter, relative conventions and hundreds of UNSC resolutions. It is simply not worthy of being called the Jewish state.
