At 7.30 in the morning on 3 June, a seven-month-old baby died in the intensive care unit of the European Gaza Hospital in the Gaza Strip. His name was Zein Ad-Din Mohammed Zu’rob, and he was suffering from a lung infection which was treatable. Denied basic equipment, the doctors in Gaza could do nothing. For weeks, the child’s parents had sought a permit from the Israelis to allow them to take him to a hospital in Jerusalem, where he would have been saved. Like many desperately sick people who apply for these permits, the parents were told they had never applied. Even if they had arrived at the Erez Crossing with an Israeli document in their hands, the odds are that they would have been turned back for refusing the demands of officials to spy or collaborate in some way. “Is it an irresponsible overstatement,” asked Richard Falk, the United Nations special rapporteur for human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories and emeritus professor of international law at Princeton University, who is Jewish, “to associate the treatment of Palestinians with [the] criminalised Nazi record of collective atrocity?

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign / Irish Anti War Movement Eircom-Amdocs campaign is drawing to a close. We will be handing in the petition this Friday 26th July @ 4pm at the Eircom Offices, the intersection of St John's Rd West and Military Road, down near Hueston Station (see map).

Chris Andrews TD (FF) and Proinsias De Rossa MEP (Lab) have confirmed that they will attend and a number of other politicians are still TBC.

We would like to invite anyone who is free to attend on Friday and help us to mark the end of this campaign.

We are calling on Eircom plc to listen to the call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) emanating from Palestinian civil society, and to refuse to enter into a contract in which one of the partners will be the Israeli company Amdocs. We believe that it would be a major boost to Israel’s prestige – in the wake of the invasion of Gaza which left over 1,400 Palestinians dead - for any consortium that includes Amdocs to receive this Eircom contract, especially given that Amdocs has declared its support for the so-called 'security' policies of the Israeli state

Eircom are still refusing to divulge whether they have actually signed the contract with Amdocs or not, but we intend to make them aware of the sentiment among the Irish public in favour of divestment from Israeli companies.

19 of the passengers of the Free Gaza boat 'Spirit of Humanity' - including Nobel Laureate Mairead Corrigan-Maguire and IPSC member Derek Graham, abducted yesterday in international waters, continue to be held by the Israeli military. Two Palestinian members of the team were released earlier today.

The IPSC is holding an emergency protest today Wednesday 1st July, 5pm, at the GPO on O'Connell Street, Dublin.  We encourage you to come along to demand the release of the kidnapped members of the Free Gaza Movement - demand their release, demand the return of the supplies, demand the release of the boat, demand a safe sea-passage to Gaza, and demand that the brutal siege of Gaza be lifted.
