Israel accuses Sally Rooney of obstructing peace in the Middle East by refusing to publish a book



Sally Rooney explained why she was boycotting Israel and not other nations.
Sally Rooney’s decision not to allow an Israeli company to translate her new book into Hebrew has sparked controversy today. The well-known Irish author has decided to support calls for a boycott of Israeli companies on state policies towards the Palestinians.
Ronnie issued a statement to the media explaining his decision and stating that he would be “honored” to receive his latest novel. Beautiful world, where are you? One company has translated into Hebrew the “BDS Movement’s Institutional Boycott Guidelines” and shares its position.

BDS, or boycott, distribution, ban movement.“There is a campaign to end international support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians and to put pressure on Israel to comply with international law.”
Ronnie’s last two novels, Chat with friends And common people. Modan, an Israeli-based publisher, translated into Hebrew, but the author rejected his request to do so with his latest work.

“First of all, I was very proud to have my last two novels translated into Hebrew by Kataria Benoit. I would like to thank everyone involved in publishing these books who support my work. It would be an honor for me to have the latest novel translated into Hebrew and available to Hebrew language readers.
“But for now, I have chosen not to sell this translation rights to an Israeli-based publishing house,” Rooney said in a statement. Free.

But why did Rooney choose to boycott Israel and not other states that could be considered by the same logic to be involved in human rights abuses? The simple answer is that solidarity with the Palestinians is close to Ronnie’s heart.
The 30-year-old admitted in a statement that she was aware of other global human rights abuses, but said the decision was a direct response to Palestinian calls.
“Of course, many states besides Israel are guilty of serious human rights violations,” he said. This was also true during the anti-apartheid campaign in South Africa. In this particular case, I am responding to a call from Palestinian civil society, including all major Palestinian trade unions and Reuters unions. “

Earlier this year, Ronnie was among more than 16,000 artists who signed a letter expressing solidarity with the Palestinians.
Title “A letter against racism“The movement calls for an immediate and unconditional end to Israeli violence against the Palestinians.”
It is also worth noting that Rooney’s stance is linked to Ireland’s enduring support for the Palestinians, as many Irish believe that the two countries are engaged in a joint struggle against colonialism and oppression.
Ireland was first. European Union The country will declare that Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories are in fact tantamount to annexation. In May 2021, the country’s parliament (The Deal) voted unanimously.
Rooney said he could not accept a new deal with an Israeli company that did not publicly distance itself from color and did not support the UN-mandated rights of the Palestinian people.
The author concludes his statement by saying that the rights to translate his new novel into Hebrew are still available.
“If I can find a way to sell these rights in line with the BDS Movement’s institutional boycott guidelines, I would be very happy and proud of it,” he added. “In the meantime, I would like to express my solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom, justice and equality. Thank you.”

THIS is the elephant in the room that needs to be talked about. Israel has ZERO oversight and borders some of the most volatile populated areas on the planet. Not to mention two coastlines where radioactive fallout pose an existential threat. Any nuclear activity, including accidents, would be a planet-wide catastrophe.

If PAKISTAN of all places can sign a nuclear treaty, Israel can. (Of course, that would mean admitting they stole nuclear secrets from the United States).

*ahem*... "Greatest ally"?

Refreshingly Honest Billionaire Says Media Purchase Will Be Used For Propaganda

"The billionaire CEO of the multibillion-dollar corporation that recently purchased the news media outlet Politico has said that its newly acquired employees will be required to support Israel and the capitalist world order.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mathias Döpfner, CEO of the German publisher Axel Springer, said that Politico staffers will be required to adhere to a set of principles which include “support for a united Europe, Israel’s right to exist and a free-market economy, among others.”

“These values are like a constitution, they apply to every employee of our company,” Mr. Döpfner told WSJ. People with a fundamental problem with any of these principles “should not work for Axel Springer, very clearly,” he said."

L O FUCKING L.
This is literally what critics of the Israel lobby have been saying the media is like for decades. Dopfner is painting himself into a giant stereotypical trope. Does he really think this will help Israel?

Screaming "canard" at anyone noticing your power can only go so far. I swear these Big Media types have only one tactic and its worn thin.

Between ;Hijacked Media' and 'hijacked politicians' and their 'loyalty oaths' many nations are controlled and freedom was for years a thin veneer (personal)that was easily discarded with the latest grasp at total control.

The Great New Normal Purge
"The purge is usually launched during a “state of emergency,” under imminent threat from some official “enemy” (e.g., “communist infiltrators,” “counter-revolutionaries,” or … you know, a “devastating pandemic”), such that the normal rules of society can be indefinitely suspended “for the sake of survival.” The more terrified the masses can be made, the more willing they will be to surrender their freedom and follow orders, no matter how insane."

I'm just sitting here thinking did the Israel get all their PR ideas from old-school 4Chan memes?

Wtf im tryna picture the ADL sitting around a table being like "Alright team. The public isn't buying our hasbara. So...how do make ourself into the worst stereotype possible. Run the Media? Check. Demand special status? Check." All thats missing is a photo-op with a Rothschild hunched over the next White House press briefing doing the hand-rubbing thing.
Its so comedically stupid

Despite their efforts (i.e censorship) in regards to what is going on in that state, they are losing the propaganda war hence the need for these measures.
They are enforcing support for Israeli war crimes.
