The Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ministry of the State of Palestine has welcomed international demands to end “racist occupation” and the need for Palestinian people to exercise their right to self-determination.
The Ministry stated its readiness to cooperate in any form and open to all proposals from global interventions to address the feud between Israel and Palestine.
A statement from the Embassy of the State of Palestine in Accra, copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the Ministry had followed with keen interest the campaigns of signatures and opinion polls that were increasing day by day on the Palestinian cause and its justice.
“A few days ago, 194 Arab and regional human rights organizations and networks signed a call for Israel to respect the rights of the Palestinian people. Two former Israeli diplomats, IIan Baruch and Alon liel, wrote an article describing what is happening in Palestine as a result of the occupation as an apartheid regime,” it said.
The statement alleged that American journalists, working with major newspapers, demanded that their colleague workers ensured the need for their news to reflect the realities of the Israeli occupation and its violations.
It also claimed 250 faculty members at the University of Michigan signed a petition to assert that many Americans no longer accepted unconditional American support for Israel.
“An opinion poll conducted by Data for Progress found that 600 of respondents supported preventing Israel from spending American support funds in annexing the West Bank, arresting minors and demolishing homes”, the statement said.
It said 680 international personalities from 75 countries also signed an open letter to US President Joe Biden calling on him to work to help end the “discrimination and oppression practiced by Israel” against the Palestinian people and the protection of basic rights.
The Ministry urged the Biden administration to quickly move to protect the rights of the Palestinian people and that failure to act within the expectation of international community would contribute to aggravating the situation on the ground.
“The Ministry welcomes and appreciates the boldness of these personalities for this strong gesture despite its delay. We hope that they will not be silent and wait for a long time, but will continue to pressure the US government to act quickly,” it said.
