Al-Quds reported that the Municipality of Kuwait decided earlier to exclude French company Veolia from a huge contract for solid waste treatment, valued at $750 million, because of its involvement in Israeli projects contrary to international law. It is also “excluding Veolia from any future projects,” following an appeal from the National Boycott Committee.
Who's next? Finally some accountability and it had to come from an Arab country, shame on us for not initiating the movement!
Your opinion on this historical event?
"Yet while this expulsion was near the order of magnitude of the Palestinian 1948 flight (estimated by the Israeli government at 550,000-600,000 and by the Arab League at 700,000), driving PLO chairman Yasser Arafat to declare that "what Kuwait did to the Palestinian people is worse than what has been done by Israel to Palestinians in the occupied territories," it was largely ignored by the international community with neither the U.N. Security Council nor the General Assembly doing anything to assist the newly displaced refugees and punish their ethnic cleanser."
It would appear that Kuwait is one of the evil nations, right up there with America.
Unfortunately it was an Israeli source so excuse-me if I don't find it relevant. Maybe a lack of objectivity?
