  • A Joint Call by the PPP and the CPI

    Communist Party of IsraelCommunist Party of IsraelPalestinian People's PartyPalestinian People's PartyThe Palestinian People’s Party and the Communist Party of Israel severely condemn the US president’s, Donald Trump, decision from Dec 6th 2017 concerning Jerusalem, which constitutes a blatant assault on the Palestinian people’s rights, and a clear strike to the requirements of a just peace according to the UN resolutions adapted by most countries and the vast majority of the peoples worldwide.

    The US policy supporting Israeli Occupation of the OPTs since 1967, will only lead to an actuation of the chaos and instability in the region and world. It rather assures the fact that the United States is part of the problem, not the solution.

Moreover, this decision, which constitutes a dangerous provocation against the peoples of the Middle East, is moving towards the direction of a more general conflagration in the region in order to satisfy the US imperialist plans.

The later, not only deepens constantly its relations with Israel, but also equates the perpetrator with the victim, proclaiming as "terrorism" the just struggle of the people of Palestine.
