SACP Statement on the Murderous Israeli Aggression SACP statement on the murderous Israeli aggression against the Gaza Freedom Flotilla

2 June 2010

The SACP condemns in the strongest possible terms the criminal and murderous acts of aggression against a peaceful Gaza Freedom Flotilla, bound for the besieged Gaza to deliver much needed aid.

The criminal massacre perpetrated by Israeli military forces against the humanitarian aid mission destined for Palestine, carrying about ten thousand tons of necessity goods in the face of the calamitous humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, a result of the illegal blockade upon this territory and its people, came under attack from the Israeli navy, where peace- activists were brutally killed.

The attack against the humanitarian convoy constitutes a flagrant and shocking violation of the most basic rules of international law, an act of piracy and a further proof of the terrorist policy of a State that has relied upon the complicity and support of the USA and the European Union.

Given this serious event, the SACP demands that our government should in no uncertain terms repudiate apartheid Israeli and condemn these latest acts of aggression. A condemnation that, in the framework of Portuguese foreign policy and Portugal's participation in the diverse international institutions, gives Israel no immunity and derives from this event all the political, diplomatic and foreign relations consequences regarding the State of Israel.

SACP reiterates its unequivocal support of the Palestinian people in their struggle for establishment of the Palestinian State along the pre-1967 borders with its capital in Jerusalem, and appeals to the South African people and progressive organizations within the solidarity and peace movements, with the Palestinian people to express their disgust and indignation and condemnation against this additional heinous act of the Israeli government and its military forces.
