Fattouh briefs a Greek parliamentary delegation on the crimes of the Israeli occupation against Palestinian people
The Speaker of the Palestinian National Council (PNC), Rawhi Fattouh, briefed a Greek parliamentary delegation from the Greek Progressive Alliance Party "SYRIZA", headed by the political advisor to the party's leader, Evangelos Kalpathax, on the latest political developments at the local and regional levels.
During the meeting, Fattouh reviewed the daily Israeli attacks and violations of human rights, and the systematic policy of repression and killing adopted by the successive occupation governments, the latest of which is the government of the extremist Bennett.
Mr. Fattouh referred to the policy of ethnic cleansing and the systematic Judaization of Palestinian lands, settlement expansion and the policy of racial discrimination, which embodies a brutal "apartheid" regime on the ground, which was confirmed by reports of international, local and even Israeli human rights organizations.
The decisions of the Palestinian Central Council came to confront the brutal Israeli occupation policy in light of the international community's failure over decades to hold Israel accountable and punish it for these crimes, Fattouh said.
The intransigence that rejects peace and the resolutions of international legitimacy, and the refusal to recognize the Palestinian right and end the Israeli occupation, has become impossible to tolerate, Fattouh added, and we will not accept the fait accompli nor the policy of "economic peace."
On the other part, the "SYRIZA" parliamentary delegation affirmed the party's and Greece's support for the rights of the Palestinian people and the establishment of their independent state, and the Palestinian right to self-determination in establishing their independent state in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions on the 1967 borders.
"SYRIZA" delegation stressed thier firm stance towards the Palestinian cause, and the depth of the historical relationship between the two countries and peoples. The Greek and Palestinian parties also agreed to form a Palestinian-Greek parliamentary friendship committee, and to strengthen relations between the parliaments and the two countries.
