RAMALLAH, Friday, December 30, 2022 (WAFA) – Palestine Thursday expressed rejection of the annexationist and violent policy guidelines of the new Israeli coalition government.
“The State of Palestine rejects the annexationist, violent, racist, and incitement to ethnic cleansing policy guidelines of Israel’s new government. The State of Palestine considers this agenda an existential threat to the Palestinian people and their inalienable and inviolable rights,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a press statement.
“This coalition of avowed racists and rejectionists has openly and unapologetically adopted an agenda of colonial expansion, racial discrimination, and apartheid thus demonstrating their complete disdain towards the international community, international law, United Nations resolutions, and the international consensus for peace,” the statement read.
The Ministry urged the international community to reject dealings with and not give credence to the platform of the new coalition government, made of right-wing Jewish supremacists.
“In light of the Israeli government’s audaciously clear and objectionable agenda, the international community must carry out its responsibilities and reject any dealings with a government committed to carrying out international crimes, including annexation, political persecution, and racial discrimination,” the Ministry said.
“States must not give credence or legitimacy to this government’s deplorable platform, which embodies the antithesis of the values and political principles the international law-based order and principles of self-determination, territorial integrity, sovereignty, and political independence,” it added.
It called for swift and “unequivocal” bilateral and multilateral action to safeguard international peace and security and urged states to end their complicity in Israeli crimes.
“International peace and security are under attack, requiring quick and unequivocal international mobilization at the bilateral and multilateral levels, including the Security Council. Of immediate urgency, the international community must ensure the protection of the Palestinian people from Israel’s ongoing campaign of dispossession and displacement, colonization and annexation, ethnic cleansing and persecution. States that have long used their political clout to shield Israel from any accountability and ensure its exceptional treatment as a state above the law must also cease this irresponsible policy of direct and indirect complicity in Israeli crimes.”
“The Palestinian people will not relent in their rightful quest for freedom and self-determination. The Palestinian people will not be deterred or dissuaded from attaining their rights by such criminal policies and conduct of the colonizer. The attainment of our inalienable human rights, including our legitimate right to exist and live in our homeland is non-negotiable. The realization of these rights are also binding obligations on all states. Any derogation from these obligations is simply inexcusable,” it concluded.
