Stop Arming Israel


Please sign up to support the statement below.

Statement:

In 2005 the UK government licensed the sale of 22.5m worth of arms to Israel, more than twice the amount in 2004, and spent millions of pounds on ‘battle-tested’ arms from Israeli companies. UK arms companies supply bombs, rockets, missiles and mines to Israel, as well as key parts for Israels Apache combat helicopters and F-16 fighter jets. These have been deployed against civilian populations in southern Lebanon and Gaza, as well as to maintain the illegal occupation of the Palestinian Territories.

We, the undersigned, call on the UK government to initiate an immediate embargo on both arms sales to Israel and arms purchases from Israeli military industry. We also urge other governments to do likewise.

We are asking organisations to support this statement by contacting us using the contact details at the bottom of the page.
