MEP: Under Israeli “democracy”, millions of Palestinians live under occupation without rights
Member of the European Parliament from Ireland Claire Daly noted that after a month of aggravation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, it became difficult to imagine that after Europe unconditionally supported the actions of the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip, anyone would be interested in the opinion of the European Union. Billions of people around the world saw Europe support Israel, calling it "the only democracy in the Middle East."
At the same time, Daly recalled that as a result of the policies pursued by this “democratic country,” 4,5 million Palestinians live under occupation without rights and are subject to dehumanization. In addition, Israel is randomly setting up checkpoints in the Palestinian territories, illegal Israeli settlers and security forces in the occupied territories are brutalizing the indigenous population, deprived of even the right to vote.
The Irish MP emphasized that after the show put on by Europe, the rest of the continent stopped taking any statements and actions of the EU leadership seriously.
It is also reported that American journalist Seymour Hersh, in his article about the situation in the Gaza Strip, noted that Biden and the United States do not influence anything and will not prevent Netanyahu from killing as many Palestinians as he wants.
He also added that the head of the Israeli government, Netanyahu, does not listen to the high-ranking Americans who visited his country. A power vacuum has formed in Washington; no one is in control of the process. All efforts of the Biden administration are aimed only at achieving re-election. At the same time, Netanyahu aims at the complete destruction of Hamas, regardless of the casualties among the civilian population of the Palestinian enclave.
