Former Vice President of the European Parliament and Italian Parliamentary Member, Luisa Morgantini, has stated that European campaigns in solidarity with the Palestinian people are increasing, particularly after the war crimes committed, by Israel, in Gaza.

The statement comes as PM Morgantini met with Deputy Minister of Local Government, Mazen Ghnaim, also head of the national committee for the commemoration of the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

According to WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency, the national committee was formed in accordance with the UN General Assembly resolution A\68\12 issued on November 26, 2013 – designated the year 2014 as a year for solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Gunaim briefed Morgantini on activities and events sponsored by the committee, as well as its interaction with the international community. Also discussed were preparations to hold an international conference for worldwide organizations working in Palestine, to be held in Palestine on November 20.

WAFA further reports that Morgantini says she will work with all Italian and European events in preparation for the conference, and that she will encourage Italian municipalities to become involved in the conference, with the intention of laying a foundation stone for sustainable solidarity with the Palestinian people.

This, she said, would compel Israel to abide by the international laws to which it is signatory.

In related news, WAFA also reports that Palestinian Minister of Finance, Shukri Bushara, has signed an agreement with the French Consul-General in Palestine, Hervé Magro, under which France will allocate €8 million in support of the Palestinian budget.

The History of Resistance – The Eagle of Palestine


Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
