Abdullah Shawesh, the Palestinian amUrge world leaders to compel Israel to uphold human rights, a Palestinian envoy says.
bassador to Nigeria, has urged world leaders to exert pressure on Israel to adhere to international human rights and humanitarian law.
He stated that Israel ought to be permitted to violate international law, adding that it ought to be held accountable to the stipulations of the law.
Shawesh provided his remarks on Wednesday during a press briefing in Abuja.
He stated, “International law, particularly international humanitarian law and human rights law, must be respected.” Israel ought not to be granted any immunity or exceptions; it should not be exempt from legal regulations.
“The time has come for the international community to support international law with resolve and unity.” It is imperative that all individuals across the globe speak out boldly at this critical juncture in history.
“Who, if not you, then?” When, if not now, then?"
Additionally, Shawesh derided Western leaders for breaking their assurances that they would protect his people.
“Western leaders’ rhetoric regarding the protection of Palestinian civilians is empty rhetoric, lip service, and tantamount to throwing ash in the eyes,” he stated.Due to the presence of double standards, hypocrisy, and substantial backing and sponsorship from numerous Western nations, Israel proceeds with the execution of its longstanding strategy to relocate the Palestinian people from Gaza to the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. This endeavor is evidently an attempt to replicate the ethnic cleansing that the Palestinians endured in 1948.
Furthermore, he condemned the proliferation of propaganda that was directed at his people.
Shawesh stated, “Decades of false and fake news stories are being broadcast and distributed by some media outlets in an effort to re-engineer the global consciousness toward complete acceptance of the Israeli genocide and war crimes against the Palestinian people.” “By doing so, these outlets are waging a dirty war against the Palestinian people.”
