#BDS: Israeli Activists Call on UK TeleComm. Giant to Cut Ties with Israeli Phone Company
"Tel Aviv – PNN - Israeli activists on Tuesday called on UK telecommunications giant BT to “live up” to the company’s “professed ethical standards” and “cut all ties with Israel’s occupation” by severing links with Israeli phone company Bezeq.
On the one year anniversary of BT accepting Bezeq into its exclusive ‘Global Alliance’, Israeli citizens from ‘Boycott From Within’ said they were “saddened and dismayed” at BT’s relationship with a company deeply involved in illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
“We, Israeli citizens devoted to the promotion of a just peace and a true democracy in the Middle East”, the letter begins, “are deeply concerned about the potentially irreversible damage inflicted on Palestinians by the brutal Israeli occupation, and about the outrageous international support of such policies.”
