New Delhi: Popular Front of India Chairman O M A Salam has called on the international community to come up with stronger stands and impose sanctions on Israel similar to ones imposed on Apartheid South Africa.
Mr Salam also welcomed India’s support for the Palestinian cause. The country’s ambassador T S Tirumurti has unequivocally reiterated India’s support for the Palestinian cause.
O M A Salam further condemned indiscriminate Israeli bombardment on the besieged population of Gaza, which claimed more than two hundred lives, above 25% of which are children, and left several others injured.
”The root of the issue is I srael’s denial of human rights to Palestinian people and its disdain for international covenants. Despite multiple UN resolutions and international condemnation, Israel has never stopped land grab and forced expulsion of Palestinians,” he added.
People’s protests and resistance against it were often responded with brute force and killings. It’s a genocide that is happening as the world watches.
The OI C and Arab nations that have nonnalized ties with Israel should prove their commitment to their words of support to Palestine by cutting off all diplomatic and economic ties with Israel, Salam added.
Israel should be held accountable for the crimes they have been committing and it is the only way forward to prevent further bloodshed.
