EU Delegation: Israel has committed genocide

10 Sep

 

Jerome Hughes, Press TV, Brussels, Wednesday 10 September 2014.

  • An official European Union delegation has just returned to Brussels from the Middle East and has declared that Israel has committed genocide against the Palestinians.
  • The delegation, made up of 13 members of the European Parliament, has called on the EU to implement sanctions against Tel Aviv.

These members of the European Parliament are calling on the European Union to break diplomatic ties with Israel and implement sanctions against the country because of the war crimes it has committed against the people of Palestine.

The delegation of 13 Members of the European Parliament (MEP) has just returned to Brussels from the Middle East and played a video to journalists showing a Palestinian child dying in the back of an ambulance. The delegation describes what Israel has done to the people of Gaza as genocide.

The 50-day Israeli war on Gaza left thousands dead and tens of thousands wounded. The delegation of MEPs is accusing the West of turning its back on the Palestinian people by not taking action against Israel. The politicians accuse Tel Aviv of continuing to break international laws by engaging in land grabs to build settlements in Palestine.

The United Nations aid organisation, UNRWA, estimates that it will cost 800 million euro to reconstruct the buildings and infrastructure in Palestine that were recently destroyed by Israel during its 50-day bombardment of Gaza. In the meantime hundreds of thousands of people will effectively remain homeless. The agency says 90% of the water in Gaza is now undrinkable, disease is spreading and it predicts that the area will be uninhabitable by the year 2020 unless the international community gets behind the citizens of Palestine.
