Intel Supports Ethnic Cleansing

For Immediate Release
December 2, 2005

URGENT: INTEL SUPPORTS ETHNIC CLEANSING

According to newspaper reports, Intel, one of the largest
chip-makers in the world, will be building a $3.5 billion plant next to
its
existing facility in 'Kiryat Gat'. The extra plant will be built on land
that belongs to the Palestinian village of Iraq Al Manshiya. According
to
Zionist historian Benny Morris, Israel expelled the villagers of Iraq Al
Manshiya by "intimidation using all means."

ACTION

Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, calls on its members
and
supporters to write urgently to Intel demanding that:

* Intel abandon its investments in Israel. The company's proposed
expansion
site is located on land confiscated from the Palestinian village of Iraq
Al-Manshiya.

* Israel forced out the original inhabitants of Iraq Al-Manshiya and the
nearby village of Al-Faluja after the 1948 war ended contrary to
international law and an armistice agreement sponsored by the UN and
which
Israel signed.

* Intel should not participate and allow Israel to have economic
benefits
from the illegal dispossession of Palestinians. Israel is denying
Palestinian refugees their right to return to their lands and homes
which it
is occupying. This natural and inalienable right is enshrined in the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Law, and is
supported by numerous UN resolutions.

* Intel has far more attractive long-term options for building and
expanding
in other countries. These options serve Intel's customers, shareholders
and
employees in far more productive and honorable ways.
