  • EU Concerned by Israeli Law That Can Revoke J’slm Residency Status

    Last week, the Knesset passed new legislation which empowers the Israeli Minister of Interior to revoke the permanent residency status of persons allegedly involved in “terrorism, treason or espionage.”

    In response to the passage of the new Israeli law, the European Union issued a statement last weekend expressing its grave concern, parts of which are reproduced below:

    “The European Union rejects terrorism in all its forms, and the crimes set out in this legislation are very serious. However, the new law could make the residency status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, a protected population under International Humanitarian Law, even more precarious than it already is today. The new law could be used to further compromise the Palestinian presence in East Jerusalem, which would further undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.”


  • Joint Call of Communist Youth Organizations for the Day of Common Action and of Solidarity towards the Palestinian People

    comunistaWe denounce to the young people, to the peoples of the entire world, the ongoing crime of US-NATO-Israel against the Palestinian people. The US decision to declare Jerusalem as “the capital of Israel” and to relocate there their embassy from Tel Aviv, as well as the EU’s unchanging stance, which equates the “perpetrator” with the “victim”, paves the way for a new imperialist crime.

    This provocative action by the US government is not a casual act, but it is part of the general intervention plans of the US in the region of Middle East aiming to secure their interests. The aim is to cancel the solution of the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as capital, for what the Palestinian people have struggled and shed their blood for so many years. In that way, intervention is taking place, and developments in favour of USA and its allies are being prepared concerning the in the uncertain situation that is formed in the Middle East, especially after the defeat of the “Islamic State” in Syria, while taking into account the context of fierce competition that takes place in the region.
