Should OECD admit Israel in wake of the nukes for nazi's deal?
OECD slammed for admitting Israel
Palestinians slam the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for offering membership to Israel as complicity in Tel Aviv's war crimes.
"OECD member countries show a blatant complicity with Israeli war crimes, destroying the very foundations of international law," the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC) said in a statement on Monday.
"Rewarding Israel entrenches its impunity and dashes any realistic hope for achieving a just peace in the region," Ma'an news agency quoted the statement as saying.
The Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development invited Israel to join the body -- the exclusive club of prominent world economies -- underlining the transformation of Israel's inflation-hit crushing economy to one of a growing and stable advancement.
But the Palestinian boycott movement criticized the decision, arguing the OECD's member states "are perfectly aware that Israel does not comply with any of the objective criteria" it was required to meet for its accession to the OECD Convention.
I'm not sure if wanting to sell nukes to South African Racist Nazi's should be an entry requirement for the OECD? How can a current war crime state enacting a brutal occupation be considered civilized enough to join the human rights championing OECD? What on Earth would the OECD make of the living standards in Gaza based on the needlessly cruel economic strangulation caused by Israel? Surely the OECD are joking and will revoke their membership?
Allowing a war crime state to join a group supposedly focused on the welfare and development of people makes a mockery of the organization and demeans everyone.
Israel should be forced to resign and can join once they have ended their brutal occupation.
