Tóibín Calls Palestinian Ambassador to Communicate Solidarity with Palestinians
Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín TD has called the Palestinian Ambassador to Ireland today to offer solidarity and support to Palestinians in this time of shocking devastation. He stated;
“It is absolutely shocking that over 219 people have been killed in Gaza. That 63 of those killed are children is beyond brutal. Nowhere, ever has the killing 63 children ever improved the security of any country. The disproportionate response by Israel of off the scale”.
“Each life taken only serves to build fear, hate and more violence. I believe that the shocking manner in which the people Gaza are being held is the biggest threat to Israel’s security. Justice is the best guarantor of peace. We in Ireland know better than most, that equal rights, democratic freedom and justice are the cure to generations of hate and violence”.
“The lives lost in Israel for each individual family are a disaster and a tragedy. These two are heart-breaking. For each of these people their world has ended too. Dialogue and engagement must happen. It’s critical that the UN ends its failure in fulfilling its raison d’être, to ensure the peaceful coexistence of nations. The US role in holding up an UN Security Council Resolution is adding to the problems in Palestine. I have written a letter to the US Embassy in Ireland urging them to end their blocking of the Resolution”.
In our short existence Aontú has protested out side the Chinese Embassy in Support of the Uighur peoples. We have raised the crisis in Myanmar in the Dáil and we will continue to campaign for justice throughout the world.
