- The PA Wants The EU to Help, Not The Resistance
The EU must clearly and unequivocally state that it has abandoned the Palestinian people to complete political isolation. The recent Israeli air strikes on Gaza have not only revealed the UN’s scheming in terms of protecting Zionist colonisation of Palestine, but also the EU’s interests when it comes to forcing Palestinians into accepting detrimental conditions which run contrary to the people’s liberation struggle.
A spokesperson for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini stated: “The rocket fire from Gaza towards Israel must stop immediately.” An identical statement was issued by the EU Embassy in Israel. The statements completely eliminate Israel’s murder of Palestinians at the Great March of Return protests, as well as the air strikes on Gaza which have once again displaced Palestinian families, as well as killed and injured civilians. Instead, the focus is on the resistance movements finding ways to thwart the glorified Iron Dome, while disregarding the fact that Israel is consistently developing weapons to test on Palestinians in Gaza before marketing abroad for other nations.
The onslaught of comments condemning Gaza’s rocket retaliation is not surprising. However, the absence of even the slightest condemnation of Israel is an admission that the EU no longer feels it has to conceal its intentions. Just like the UN, the EU has decided to flaunt its support for Israel. Nevertheless, it will still require Palestinians to view the EU as playing an important role in the hypothetical state-building which, since Oslo, has only yielded additional colonisation of Palestine.
