BT’s response to Amos Trust’s rejoinder alleging BT’s complicity in Israel’s breaches of international law

Suggestions that BT activities in Israel make the company complicit in breaches of international law and human rights are ill-founded. We work in Israel to provide communications services to multinational companies. Much of that work is done in partnership with Israel’s major telecommunications company, Bezeq. Bezeq, is one of more than 100 “BT Alliance” partners globally. Each of these partners works with BT’s Global Services division to provide telecoms and IT services to multinationals. We are aware that some people want us to sever links with Bezeq. While respecting the strength with which some of these people have been expressing their views, we feel unable to comply with their wishes.
