Israel has now crossed the rubicon of humanity by the destruction of life and its disregard for property. It pursues the illegal building of settlements and annexing of East Jerusalem in contravention of UN resolutions that call for them to desist and return to its 1967 borders.
We demand that;
- the mis-named Israeli Defence Force (IDF) cease its continuing bombardment of Gaza City and surrounding area's
- the IDF remove its armored weaponry out of, the area known as the Gaza Strip
- those member's of the British Parliament who are "Friend's of Israel" question why, by association, they support the IDF actions in Gaza
- Israel frees Marwan Barghouti and the thousands of political prisoners being held on trumped up charges
We call upon the world to;
- condemn the Israeli State & ask Israeli citizen's to renounce its government's policy.
- boycott all Israeli goods & services until progress is made towards returning land stolen from the Palestinian people as per relevant UN resolutions
- support any call for Israel to be removed from all European Sport connections forthwith
We call upon Hamas to;
- cease their missile attacks on the people of Israel, so that talks on a lasting peace in Palestine can recommence
These acts of inhumanity cannot be justified; the history of the Jewish people's is one of centuries of human misery and yet they allow this perpetration of another race to occur in their name. The Communist Party fully supports a two state solution based on a peaceful transition.
