Israel continues to break UN resolutions – and this year aims to scandalously annex the West Bank, because our Government is arming them to do so.
Figures from the Campaign Against Arms Trade reveal that in 2017 the UK issued a record £221m worth of arms licences to defence companies exporting to RW-Israel.
Human rights groups have questioned the wisdom of sending a senior royal to a country whose use of lethal force has been the subject of concern from the UK government in 2018.
Theresa May then British prime minister said the use of live rounds by Israeli forces was “deeply troubling”.
In 2010 the then foreign secretary, David Miliband, said Israeli equipment used in an attack on Gaza “almost certainly” contained British-supplied components. Yet the arms sales have continued unabated. There must be a full investigation into if any UK arms have been used in the atrocities we have seen over recent months.”
Like everyone in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, people in Ramallah have endured years of discriminatory restrictions on their movement, with roadblocks, militarised checkpoints and off-limits roads which are for the exclusive use of those in the illegal Israeli settlements.
The UK Tories plan to sell arms and technical support to JSIL and to cut millions from the NHS budget.
Perhaps it is ‘ziophilia’ coupled with ‘anglophobia’ ?
Our Government is prepared to make cuts to our health care, our police, our pensions yet they still give support to JSIL so they can continue to carry out the illegal occupation and brutal murder of the Palestinians.
The Likud regime now intends to illegally annex the West Bank. They break ceasefires and UN resolutions because our Government is physically and investment-wise, supporting them to do so.
A few years ago the Tory Government said NHS-England would receive an additional £1.6 billion (in 2018/19). Experts at Nuffield Trust advised that based on how spending has increased that the NHS needed more like £4 billion in 2018/19.
Following the 2018 budget the King’s Fund said that “the extra funding pledged falls short … the NHS next year will not be able to meet rising demand.” It estimates a gap in the budget of around £20 billion by 2022/23.”
