Statement By PLO’s Dr. Hanan Ashrawi On Israeli Elections

Leave a comment

PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi: “The results of the Israeli elections are the natural outcome of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policies throughout his previous tenures of generating fear, hostility and distrust, as well as shifting the whole terrain of political discourse to the racist extreme. By destroying the chances of peace, negating Palestinian statehood, willfully persisting and violating international law, and challenging the will of the international community through an escalation of settlement activities and land theft, particularly in Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, Netanyahu is liable to plunge the whole region into more extremism and violence. Israel, under such a regime, not only continues to be a rogue state, but is also contributing to its own isolation and delegitimization. We believe it is the responsibility of the international community and its institutions, including the International Criminal Court, to end Israel’s impunity, to curb Israeli violations and to prevent Netanyahu from carrying out his dangerous plans. Palestine is perfectly within its rights to pursue a course of action, to protect our rights and lands and to hold Israel to account in all available venues.”
