Foreign Ministry: State of Palestine warns against unaccountable, unrestrained fascism of Israeli officials

The State of Palestine has warned against what it described as ‘the unaccountable fascism, unrestrained power, and unabated criminality’ of Israel’s officials, which, according to a statement today by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, are ‘sustained by an undemocratic and social system of Jewish supremacy, oppression, racism, and apartheid.’ The Foreign Ministry said fascism in Israel ‘is enabled by militias ties to power and threatens regional and international peace and security.’ It said fascist Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir’s reported agreed militias of ‘racial terror will only serve to target, kill, and torture the undefended Palestinian people, en masse.’ It held the government of Israel responsible for the repercussion of this decision, ‘which only confirms Israel’s absolute contempt for Palestinian rights and lives and flagrant breach of the international community’s parameters of a just solution.’ The Ministry added: ‘We will not stand idly by as a proud terrorist and an anarchist form and lead another Jewish militia with the declared aim of ethnically cleansing the land of its people. The Palestinian people have an unassailable right to defend themselves, their families, homes, and lands, from this State terrorism.’ It went on to say: ‘The warning signs are clear. Since the beginning of 2023, Israel has killed over 90 Palestinians including 17 children. Condemnations of and concrete actions against Ben Gvir’s militia of racial terror are necessary. Likewise, the Secretary-General of the United Nations must uphold his obligations and provide immediate international protection for the Palestinian people. ‘The rights of the Palestinian people to live as free and independent people in their homeland, in dignity, in peace and security, are neither negotiable nor tradable for internal political fixtures. The rights of the Palestinian people are inalienable and universally recognized and only their realization will end this international crisis and lead to regional and international peace and security.’
