The KKE supports the important Initiative of Communist and Worker Parties for the Palestinian issue

  • Solidarity with the people of Palestine
  • Condemn the imperialists of the USA and the EU for their support of Israel
  • The position of the parties of the so-called “European left” is Unacceptable

On July 31st the “Rizospastis” newspaper, organ of the CC of the KKE notes that an important initiative of Communist and Worker Parties of the world is taking place, after the call of the People’s Party of Palestine, for a joint statement in support of the struggle of the Palestinian people.

The Statement condemns the crimes of the Israeli army in Palestine, as well as the political support that these crimes have from the USA, having recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Moreover, the Statement condemns the politics of the European Union, that equalizes the victim with the victimizer and in practice upgrades its relations with the Israeli state.

The Statement criticizes the positions of parties of the European Left, such as the German Die Linke party, that support the Israeli occupation and the settlements, but also of parties of the European Left, that are in governmental positions and support the deepening of the relations of their countries with Israel.

Moreover, the condemnation of the recent racist law approved in Israel is expressed and the firm position of the CP’s for solidarity with the Palestinian people, with its just struggle in favor of an independent and sovereign Palestine state, within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, is reiterated.

The Statement, as well as the parties that sign up to now, read as follows:

 

Joint Statement of Communist and Worker Parties

The Communist and Worker Parties decisively condemn the crimes committed by Israeli army against Palestinian people in the occupied territories, especially in the Gaza Strip, that has caused a bloodbath, murdering in cold blood unarmed demonstrators, men, women, and children.

The aggressive policy of the Trump administration and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move there the US Embassy, over and against the general international outcry, has encouraged the aggressiveness of Israel, that continues the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories and continues massacring the Palestinian people. The governments of the countries that assume a stance of equal distances, identifying the victim with the offender, have great responsibilities; the position of the European Union, that while an organized massacre of the Palestinian people is occurring is calling “all sides to show restraint” and is upgrading its relations with the Israeli state, is unacceptable. Some European left Parties has also unacceptable position supporting Israeli occupation and settlements as the latest visit of the leader of parliamentary group of German left party De – Linke and planting a tree in Israeli settlement. While some other European countries leaded by other parties member of European left developing relations with Israel especially military. The latest vote of the Israeli Knesset the Nationality Law is an additional step toward the apartheid state .

The Communist and Worker Parties express our solidarity and our support to the Palestinian people and to its just struggle in favor of its own independent and sovereign Palestinian state within the pre June 4th 1967 borders, with its capital in East Jerusalem. We continue our struggle and we call the peoples to strengthen their solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people until the end of the Israeli aggression and occupation supported by world imperialism.
