Israeli peace forces warrant solidarity
MEPs grilled Left Knesset politicians this afternoon in Tel Aviv on how the global indignation with Israel's actions over Gaza was perceived worldwide. They also asked them about the strength of the peace movement in Israel.
MEP Matt Carthy said that “no peace process has existed without international input and pressure” and appealed to them to work with those of us around the world who also want to see an end to this apartheid and occupation.
The GUE/NGL Delegation was told about the huge shift to the right in Israeli society, and there was general agreement that just like in any country there are many voices of resistance against the dominant ideology and government policies.
GUE/NGL MEPs are calling for solidarity with Knesset members who publicly voice their indignation with the attacks on Gaza.
