This report clarifies for international audiences the role that Israeli banks play in the Israeli colonial-settlement enterprise in the territory of the occupied state of Palestine. This is not a novel, new, or an isolated case: there are several Israeli and international companies that profit from the apartheid system imposed by Israel. Yet, several countries that claim to support the two-state solution continue to allow their companies to take part in this illegal enterprise. Our position is clear: We will continue to denounce the activity of banks and other companies that profit from the occupation of Palestine and we will take all necessary legal and political measures against those who contribute to the systematic denial of our rights.
