Arab Parliament criticizes European counterpart over silence against Israeli crimes in Palestine
  • It slammed European Parliament for its failure to address Israeli human rights violations in occupied territories

LONDON: The Arab Parliament said it denounces the silence of the European Parliament over the flagrant crimes and violations that are taking place in Palestine by Israel.
In a statement, the Arab parliament criticized its European counterpart’s decision to remain silent “at a time when Arab and European countries and organizations are taking action and expressing their categorical rejection of Israeli violations, which are a blatant defiance to international and humanitarian laws.”
The Arab Parliament said that the European Parliament’s silence and failure to address Israeli human rights violations in the occupied territories reflects its policy of double standards and unbalanced approach.
The Arab legislative body said it was surprised by the unfound stances taken by the European Parliament over the human rights situation in Arab countries, accusing it of acting to serve political purposes under the pretext of human rights.
The Arab Parliament renewed its strong condemnation of Israel’s brutal attacks against the Palestinians, and called on the UN Security Council to immediately act to put an end to all Israeli violations.
