ICP, 12 January, 2017
The delegation of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) at the European Parliament denounced the provocative prosecution of the 16 year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi by the Israeli authorities and submitted a question to the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.
According to the statement of the KKE, the member of parliament (MEP) of KKE posed questions to F. Mogherini and asked whether she would denounce the arrest of Tamimi and escalation of aggressiveness by the Israeli state.
In his question to F.Mogherini, the KKE MEP Kostas Papadakis mentioned that Israel escalates its aggressiveness, through the recent provocative arrest of the 16 year-old palestinian Ahed Tamimi and the 12 charges filled against her by the Israeli court because she scuffled with Israel soldiers in the West Bank, after the occupational israeli forces had shot Tamimi's 14 year-old cousin and had invaded her home.
"At the same time", said the KKE MEP, "the raids of Israeli fighter aircrafts at the Gaza strip, the expansion of the settlements as well as the injuries and murders against the Palestinian people continue, in the aftermath of the unacceptable decision of the USA to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and transfer the US embassy there".
"Both the EU and the SYRIZA-ANEL government" Papadakis underlined, "are accomplices to the continuous crime against the Palestinian people, as long as they not only maintain, but also upgrade their relations with the state of Israel with agreements like the one signed for the Eastmed pipeline, in the name of ‘stability in the region’ and for the interests of the monopolies they serve."
Based on the above, the KKE MEP asks the EU's High Representative:
- Whether or not she denounces the arrest of the 16 year-old Palestinian girl and the escalation of the aggressiveness by the Israeli state?
- What actions is she going to undertake in order to ask for her immediate release?
