BRussells Tribunal Statement: Israel only knows War and Killing: Stand with Palestine and Egypt against Israeli Aggression

In-depth Report:

In face of the world’s increasing support for the intended legitimate and legal demand of Palestine to be recognised as an independent UN member state; in face of the success of the peaceful Egyptian revolution in making profound changes to liberate Egypt from foreign dictates in order to defend Egypt’s security and rights; and in face of Israel’s failure to offer a decent life for Jews and Arabs under its authority, Israel returns, in breach of international law and international agreements, to an aggressive military policy of indiscriminately bombing civilians in Gaza, of killing Egyptian soldiers, and threatening — with US support — to occupy the Egyptian land of Sinai or part of it.

It is evident that Israel, with the complicity of the US, wants to use the attack in Eilat, even before any investigation has been conducted, as pretext to turn attention away from the Palestinian project of becoming a member state of the UN, to threaten the Egyptian revolution, and to turn international public opinion away from the ascending Arab revolution towards an Arab-Israeli conflict.

We condemn Israeli aggression. We support the people of Gaza against Israeli attacks. We support Palestinians in their struggles for their rights. We condemn Israeli attempts to prevent Egyptians from deepening their revolution to build an independent, democratic and developed new Egypt by waging war against it.
