The Israeli army attacked Gaza last night with huge military means. The first assessment reported 150 dead, mostly civilians. This massacre was announced, considered and discussed in recent days in the Israeli press, after the truce observed by Hamas and broken all the time by the Israeli army. This crime was made possible by the impunity given to Israel for nearly 9 years and the active support they enjoy within the European Union. It is the direct result of the enhancement of cooperation with the EU imposed by the French presidency against the vote to postpone the European Parliament.
For years now, the Gaza Strip is suffering, with the complicit support of the European Union a criminal seat who deliberately violates all international laws: one and a half million civilians are trapped by the Israeli army and deprived of everything: food, fuel, electricity, medicines, school materials ... Less than one tenth of trucks required for the normal supply of the population reach it. The airport and port were destroyed before they could ever work. It is forbidden to fish. Only a few boats chartered by militants have forced the blockade. The population undergoes a "punishment" for collective ruthless "wrong" vote. (they voted democratically for the Hamas) The international community does nothing, even encourages this seat. The occupant had expelled Robert Falk, the Special Reporter on the situation of human rights of the United Nations.
There is no status quo as possible, any possible continuation of the siege and ruthless criminal. Every people besieged has the right to resist oppression.
No symmetry can be established with the few missiles that fell on Israeli cities. There will be no security for Israel without security for the people of Gaza. The EU and U.S. policies since Annapolis, avoiding to face the reality of the occupation, leading to the deadlock expected that once the Palestinian people pay any price.
The French Jewish Union for Peace denounces the crime against the people of Gaza. It calls everywhere to demonstrate against this new aggression. The FJUP requires an immediate reaction from the French government, the European Community and the United Nations to stop the aggression and to put an end to the blockade of Gaza.http://www.ujfp.org/modules/news/articl ... toryid=448
