New Communist Party of Britain
The Communist and Worker Parties decisively condemn the crimes committed by Israeli army against the Palestinian people in the occupied territories, especially in the Gaza Strip, that has caused a bloodbath, murdering in cold blood unarmed demonstrators, men, women, and children.
The aggressive policy of the Trump administration and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to mov the US Embassy there, over and against the general international outcry, has encouraged the aggressiveness of Israel, that continues the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories and continues massacring the Palestinian people.
The governments of the countries that assume a stance of equal distances, identifying the victim with the offender, have great responsibilities; the position of the European Union, that while an organized massacre of the Palestinian people is occurring is calling “all sides to show restraint” and is upgrading its relations with the Israeli state, is unacceptable.
Some European left parties also have unacceptable positions supporting the Israeli occupation and settlements as the latest visit of the leader of parliamentary group of German left party Die Linke and planting a tree in Israeli settlement have shown. In some other European countries, led by other parties, members of the European Left are developing relations with Israel especially with the military. The latest vote of the Israeli Knesset, the Nationality Law, is an additional step towards he apartheid state.
The Communist and Workers Parties express their solidarity and their support to the Palestinian people and to its just struggle in favour of its own independent and sovereign Palestinian state within the pre June 4th 1967 borders, with its capital in East Jerusalem. We continue our struggle and we call the peoples to strengthen their solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people until the end of the Israeli aggression and occupation supported by world imperialism.
