CHAMPIONING GLOBAL HUMAN  RIGHTS: INTERVIEW WITH RICHARD FALK 
By Victor Kattan, The Electronic  Intifada, 24 December 2008 

Earlier this month, Israeli authorities  deported Professor
Richard Falk, United Nations Special Rapporteur for  Human
Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, who had
arrived in  the country to conduct his duties to
investigate rights abuses in the  Israeli-occupied West
Bank and Gaza Strip. The Electronic Intifada  contributor
Victor Kattan interviews Falk about the motivation behind
his  deportation.

PALESTINE  : OPINION/EDITORIAL:

SECURITY COUNCIL UNDERMINES JUSTICE AND UN CHARTER  
By Hasan Abu Nimah and Ali Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada, 24 December  
2008 

The United Nations Security Council passed its first
resolution  on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in almost
five years, on 16 December. But  far from marking a break
with the Council's abdication of responsibility for  the
fate of the Palestinian people, United States- and
Russian-sponsored  resolution 1850 is the final nail in the
coffin for even the pretense that  international law and
institutions will play any serious role in ending 60  years
of dispossession and occupation, and bringing about a just
peace.  Hasan Abu Nimah and Ali Abunimah comment.

DEATH PENALTY IN PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES ALARMS RIGHTS  GROUPS 
By Mel Frykberg, The Electronic Intifada, 24 December 2008  

RAMALLAH, occupied West Bank (IPS) - New York-based Human
Rights  Watch (HRW) has sent urgent letters to Palestinian
leaders in the Gaza Strip  and the West Bank, urging them
to commute the death sentences of 11  Palestinians
currently awaiting execution. The death-row  inmates,
including one who was a juvenile at the time of his
conviction,  were sentenced this year by Palestinian
military and state security  courts.

PALESTINE  : ACTION ITEMS:

BOYCOTT L'OREAL: MAKEUP FOR ISRAELI APARTHEID 
The  Palestinian BDS National Committee, The Electronic Intifada, 23 December 
2008  

In this holiday season, the Palestinian Boycott,
Divestment and  Sanctions National Committee calls upon
people of conscience all over the  world to boycott all the
products of the French cosmetics giant, L'Oreal, due  to
its deep and extensive involvement in business relations
with Israel,  despite the latter's continued occupation and
apartheid policies against the  indigenous Palestinian
people.

PALESTINE  : ACTIVISM NEWS:

QUEBEC SUPPORTING APARTHEID? 
By Stefan Christoff,  The Electronic Intifada, 23 December 2008 

Quebec inked an economic  partnership agreement with Israel
this fall in Jerusalem. Attracting little  attention from
major media outlets, Quebec's bilateral accord was  signed
during a government-led delegation to Israel that  included
high-level state officials and corporate representatives
this  past September, amidst Israel's ongoing siege of
Gaza. Quebec's accord with  Israel stands in contrast to
the growing international calls for an economic  boycott of
the Israeli government. Stefan Christoff comments.
