GAZA, (PIC)– Deputy speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) Dr. Ahmed Bahar has called on the Arab League to take a responsible and courageous stance against the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, as the league is set to convene on Sunday.

”We don’t want condemnation and denunciation, but rather want decisions on the ground to stop the aggression, end the blockade and reconstruct [Gaza],” Bahar said.

He also called on the Arab League to abide by commitments made in the Amman summit in March 2001 that emphasized the need for a special tribunal to prosecute Israeli war criminals.

Commenting on the latest Israeli aggression, Bahar said: ”The savage Zionist aggression over the last three days, which has led to the death of 19 and injury of more than 70, most of them children, women and elderly – and the [Israeli occupier] has used banned weapons in order to subjugate our people and make them waive their basic rights – is nothing new for this deformed entity, but rather it is a natural event in the Zionist Talmudic policy that aims to eradicate our people and their resistance.”

Bahar also called on United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to use powers vested in him under Article 99 of the UN charter to go to the Security Council to prosecute war criminals and addressed calls to the Egyptian Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and other Arab and Muslim leaders to intervene during the brutal attack.

He emphasized the need to highlight the Goldstone report on the agenda of the upcoming UN General Assembly meeting.




“We ask, how many more dead corpses of Palestinian children and women does the international community need to see in order to act?”
