PR05/07/2014 Violence in the Middle East will stop when Palestine is free

With regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict escalation in the Middle

East, AD Secretary General Ralph Cassar who attended an activity by the

Palestine Solidarity Network in Valletta said:

"Alternattiva Demokratika reiterates its position against the setting up of

Israeli settlements in occupied territory and against the harsh and cruel

occupation of Palestine by Israel. The spiral of violence in the Middle

East is an obvious consequence of the Israeli military occupation of


The killing of three Israeli students and the consequent revenge through

the killing of a Palestinian youth is a disgrace. This, however, can never

justify Israel's policy of collective punishment. The Israeli occupation,

the repeated use of collective punishment, the daily humiliation and murder

of Palestinians and the land theft by Israeli settlers will only continue

to make a long lasting solution to

this conflict improbable.

The deep sense of injustice and frustration felt by the people of Palestine

because of the harsh realities of the occupation of Palestine by Israel

needs resolution and the attention of the international community, which

has turned its back on the plight of Palestinians for too long.
