The war in the Middle East continues unabated. In the last few hours, bombings have been recorded on the city south of Gaza, while Israel prepare the operation by land. President Benjamin Netanyahu has shown the way: control over the Strip – until the annihilation of Hamas – it is necessary for “our safety”. But there are those who want to disarm the Jewish state, invoking the too many deaths among civilians. It’s not just some small group like Ultima Generazione, which in the raid on Leonardo’s headquarters on Saturday morning blathered something about Palestine just to earn some headlines: the High Representative of the EU Josep Borrell and even a court were involved Dutch.
“The European Union does not supply weapons to Israel. Others yes”, the j’accuse of Borrell on the sidelines of the informal Development Council in Brussels: “If it is believed that the number of Palestinian deaths is too high, perhaps something can be done to make it less high in the future”. And again: “My question is: apart from words, what else do we think can be done? If the number of victims is too high, is there any possibility of making it less high?”. To legitimize his position, the EU High Representative cited the words of the President of the United States Joe Biden – “the biggest supporter of the Jewish state” – on Israel’s disproportionate operations: “I think this assessment is increasingly coming from many people around the world.”
But that is not all. Today the Court of Appeal in The Hague has established that the Dutch government will have to stop supplying spare parts for Israeli F-35 fighters In a week. The lawsuit brought by human rights organizations Oxfam Novib, PAX and The Rights Forum asked for the revocation of the export license of the pieces and according to the judges, Israel’s actions in the conflict with Hamas “represent a clear risk of violation of international humanitarian law and for this reason the government should have decided to stop supplying parts for fighter planes.”
