For another year, UN's António Guterres has left Israel's army off the “list of shame” of forces endangering children. This year Russia was added to the list. The BDS movement condemns in the strongest terms this blatant colonial hypocrisy.
Prince William’s scheduled trip to Israel this summer would contravene seven decades of British policy against official visits to Israel by the royal family. Despite many invitations, the royal family has avoided visits to avoid giving a royal stamp of approval to Israel’s decades-old violations of Palestinian human rights. As Israel’s far-right government intensifies its violations of international law, this is no time to change this precedent. The UK should pressure Israel to end its violations of Palestinian rights and cancel Prince William's trip.
